Towards an understanding!

In my last article I tried to point out the grave actions of the whole society including me which are taking us towards a disaster that is as vivid as the days in which we consume our lives. This article is a sequel to the previous one and it also is an emotional spill. InshaAllah! If Allah gave me will and time I will try to take us towards a complete understanding of our problems concealed with the solutions.
Has the story reached thee of the overwhelming (Event)? Some faces, that Day, will be humiliated. Laboring (hard), weary. The while they enter the Blazing Fire. The while they are given, to drink, of a boiling hot spring. No food will there be for them but a bitter Dhari'. Which will neither nourish nor satisfy hunger.
(Holy Quran, 88:1-7)

We come by to no accountability, we are answerable to none and no one questions us. Our loved ones die in front of our eyes we see them breathe their last breath, we treasure their last memories, the days we have spent with them, but we don’t imagine dying ourselves and leaving this bustling world, those moments come by and leave leaving us untouched and impressing nothing on our actions. Just remember that time when you were sick and you were suffering from fever what do you think then, what does come into your min? I know it by experience that everybody in this world has experienced death by one way or the other and when we have this glimpse of death what does come into our mind? (I would be happy to hear your comments). As for me it is always Allah who manifests in me like the Supreme Being who has absolute control of everything and health rests in His hands and I pray, I pray and pray and when I am healthy again I forget all those feelings. I believe that this happens with all of us. But here in this world we as students are not answerable to our teachers, and teachers do not question us, we as sons and daughters are not answerable about our deeds to our parents and they don’t question us, (except some exceptions, because we do what we want to do no matter what), we as the guardians of this nation and the Muslim Ummah are answerable to none because there is no one to question, we are answerable to nobody in this world, we are always compromising our self with what is upon us and we don’t do something about it. We don’t care, we don’t bother about 1 billion people living on this earth on less than a dollar a day, we don’t care about the lies and fantasies and the falsehoods we are living in, nobody bothers to find out the truth and some of those who know it are busy in writing it in columns and some of those who know are involved in secret societies and groups and I don’t know what they are really up to.
Nay! When the earth is pounded to powder. And thy Lord cometh, and His angels, rank upon rank. And Hell, that Day, is brought (face to face),- on that Day will man remember, but how will that remembrance profit him? He will say: "Ah! Would that I had sent forth (good deeds) for (this) my (Future) Life!". For, that Day, His Chastisement will be such as none (else) can inflict. And His bonds will be such as none (other) can bind.
(Holy Quran, 126:21-26)

So, our life is finite, it is not going to go on like this forever, it is going to end some day and just hold on to your throat for 1 minute and you will experience how your death will be. Yes, of course it is difficult and nearly impossible for us to get what the clear image is but still we should be aware of what grave times we are living in and we must prepare ourselves for that breath taking and ears shattering experience of death and then there will the One who will account for our deeds and our actions and then there will be no one to save us from Allah’ wrath. We are looking for answers and for solutions to our problems and for the serenity in our lives. We want to evolve in a free world first the world has experienced Communism and now the world wants to suffer from Democracy. While we have the answers, solutions, and peace in our own religion Islam that means peace itself. But today it has been made a dogma, a dogma for the marriage ceremony, a dogma for the funeral, a dogma for a new born baby, a dogma for the Friday prayer and nothing else. I can do nothing but have a deep sigh on our very pitiful condition. But on the Day of Judgment there will be no running away and there will be no savior for us, there will be no bribe there and there will be no favoritism and there certainly will be no racism on the basis of power. Then when Allah will ask us where did you spend your life? What are we going to say??? Yes, He is Raheem and Rehman but he is also Qahaar and Jabaar. May Allah bless us all and guide us to the straight path because it is His shear grace that we may be guided to the right path by Him.
Do men think that they will be left alone on saying, "We believe", and that they will not be tested? We did test those before them, and Allah will certainly know those who are true from those who are false. Do those who practise evil think that they will get the better of Us? Evil is their judgment!
(Holy Quran, 29:2-4)
