We Are Foreigners in This World

Listen to Sultanق’s Sohbah here:(5:42)

Read Sultanق’s Sohbah here:

Every blessed word of our Holy Prophet ṣallá Llāhu ‘alayhi wa-sallam is a jewel. Every word he ﷺ says is the light that shows the way to people. They are the words that brighten up the way. People who follow those words reach safety. Those who don’t follow them will be destroyed.

A holy word of our Holy Prophet ṣallá Llāhu ‘alayhi wa-sallam is that you pass away from this world just like you pass by a road. You are like a visitor or a traveller in this world. So be like one, says our Holy Prophet ṣallá Llāhu ‘alayhi wa-sallam. “كَأَنَّكَ غَرِيبٌ أَوْ عَابِرُ سَبِيل”, “Ka-annaka gharībun aw ‘ābiru sabīl”, “Like a stranger, or one who is passing through.” Be like a person passing by a road. Pay attention to it as here is not our place to stay. Even if you stop, the way doesn’t stop. It takes you further. It takes you towards your death.

Therefore, make sure to benefit from this. How much goodness you can do, how much worship you can perform, do so, says our Holy Prophet ṣallá Llāhu ‘alayhi wa-sallam. It won’t wait for you until you feel like doing so and until you start worshipping. No. Those who both do and don’t worship are travellers on the way. They are travellers towards ākhirah. The destination is ākhirah. No one will remain in dunyā. Everything except Allāh ‘Azza wa-Jalla will be tested with death. Everything from stones to iron, everything has its end. And people are also going towards their end. Stones are going. Animals are going.

This is the way. Know this way well so that the end of the way is good. Know and recognize your destination. Don’t ramble without knowing. Ignorance is hard. Not knowing is hard. If you go somewhere without knowing, you ask, “Where are we going? What are we doing?” And if no one knows, people get worried.

Whereas Allāh ‘Azza wa-Jalla has shown the way. He ﷻ has shown the target and where we are going. He ﷻ has shown everything very clearly. Yet, mankind does not believe in that way. They don’t accept it. Whether they accept it or not, eventually, they will reach ākhirah, the grave and qiyāmah.

Our Holy Prophet ṣallá Llāhu ‘alayhi wa-sallam says that qiyāmah is near but people are far from it. Our Holy Prophet ṣallá Llāhu ‘alayhi wa-sallam has a ḥadīth that states: The death of people is their qiyāmah. Because when you are put in your grave and then when qiyāmah takes place, it will seem like an hour for you. Even if thousands of years pass, that won’t matter. After death comes qiyāmah.

Therefore, be careful. Know your way. Know your way and take precautions accordingly. And the precaution is to walk on the way of Allāh ﷻ, to obey the orders of Allāh ﷻ. Allāh ‘Azza wa-Jalla is Raheem (The Most Compassionate). He ﷻ didn’t order things that mankind cannot do. All of them are easy things. Performing worship is easier than most things you do. But shayṭān is cheating people and showing it as difficult. May Allāh ﷻ protect us and brighten up our way inshā’aLlāh.

Wa min Allah at-Tawfiq. Al-Fatiha.
