As sala’amu alaikum
How deep our fear is for Allah in our everyday lives, how deep is our fear with our actions? How deep is our fear when we abuse a soul that Allah has created? How deed is our fear when lie? How deep is our fear when we go against the Shariah? How deep is our fear when we use and discard the ammnat that Allah has given us?
It is a time to sit and think and ask ourselves these questions and there are many more too. May Allah Thee Almighty Grant Me And You The Tawfeeq To Fulfill The Rights And Obligations To Allah And To Those Whom We Hurt, And To The Rest Of The Creation Of Allah. Aameen.
