Done Your Duty?

Done Your Duty?

Have you done your duty?
As a Muslim – significantly with integrity
Definitely no question about your loyalty
As to Allah and Rasul you obey with much modesty

Have you done your duty?
As an Imam or a Mufti
“Amar ma’ruf nahi mungkar” should be your policy
Thus building an Ummah with dignity.

Have you done your duty?
As the head of family,
Guiding, serving and protecting your ahli-family
From the torment of fire just as mentioned in Surah Al-Tahrim!

يَـٰٓأَيُّہَا ٱلَّذِينَ ءَامَنُواْ قُوٓاْ أَنفُسَكُمۡ وَأَهۡلِيكُمۡ نَارً۬ا وَقُودُهَا ٱلنَّاسُ وَٱلۡحِجَارَةُ عَلَيۡہَا مَلَـٰٓٮِٕكَةٌ غِلَاظٌ۬ شِدَادٌ۬ لَّا يَعۡصُونَ ٱللَّهَ مَآ أَمَرَهُمۡ وَيَفۡعَلُونَ مَا يُؤۡمَرُونَ

 “O ye who believe! Ward off from yourselves and your families a Fire whereof the fuel is men and stones, over which are set angels strong, severe, who resist not Allah in that which He commandeth them, but do that which they are commanded.” (Surah At-Tahrim 66:6)

Have you done your duty?
As a wife, whole-heartedly with sincerity
Upholding your husband’s name and property
Insha’Allah Jannah will be your place come eternity

Have you done your duty?
As a child showing piety
to your parents, you love and serve properly
just after Allah and Rasul in that priority!

Have you done your duty?
As brothers and sisters with great responsibility
Maintaining the peace and tranquillity
While spreading Islam in unity.

Have you done your duty?
As the head of an Islamic country
Preserving her sovereignty
Ultimately bringing Islam to its height and glory

Have you done your duty?
As a member of a society
Promoting friendship and goodwill within the community
Regardless of race, language or religion with such impartiality

Have you done your duty?
To the poor and needy
Bridging the gap between them and the wealthy
With your act of sympathy, hence erasing a cause for animosity

Have you done your duty?
To Allah, individually pouring your time and energy
To heaven or hell – What will it be?
The choice is clear, dear brothers and sisters that is if YOU HAVE DONE YOUR DUTY!

      “O Allah, make my love for You the most beloved thing to me, and Your displeasure with me the most fearful thing to me, and instill in me a passion for meeting You; when you have given the people of the world the pleasures of their world, make the coolness of my eyes (pleasure) in worshipping You. Aameen Thuma Aameen
