a GOOD DEEDS HIGH..
What a better way to end Ramadan on a GOOD DEEDS HIGH..
As-salaamu 'Alaikum wa Rahmatullah, I pray you are all in the best of health and upon peaks of piety, ameen.
The race is on. The race for good deeds and a high station in the akhirah. Allah azza wajall encourages us to rush towards good and abstain from evil when He speaks about three types of people in surah Al Waqia'. The people of the right hand are mentioned to be those with a good ending and then mentions the people of the left book who have a horrible ending (may Allah the most merciful protect us from that, ameen).
Then he mentions the third group of people to be As-saabiqoon As-saabiqoon. Those who are at the forefront of good deeds or racing or competing to do more than the others, they are ulaa ikal muqarraboon. They are those who are nearest to Allah. May Allah forgive us our shortcomings and keep us close to His mercy here and in the akhirah, ameen.
