Timeless Gems of Noor Mowlana Murtazâ Ali (a.s.) for the Global Jamat
Gem No. 16: How to be happy in this world?
Bismillahir Rahmanir Rahim
In the name of Allah, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful.
Ya Ali Madad! In the 24 hour cycle of day and night, we spend some time sleeping. During this time, the soul has to report its deeds to the Lord. When we wake up, we are given another chance to do good deeds according to the following verse of the Holy Qur'an.
"It is He who doth take your souls by night, and hath knowledge of all that ye have done by day: by day doth He raise you up again; that a term appointed be fulfilled; In the end unto Him will be your return; then will He show you the truth of all that ye did."
(Holy Qur'an (Yusufali) 6:60)
In the following saying, NOOR Mowlana Murtaza Ali (a.s.) reminds us to keep on doing good deeds in context of the Day of Judgement.
"Happy is the man who always kept the life after death in view, who remembered the Day of Reckoning (Judgement) through all his deeds, who led a contented life and who was happy with the lot that God had destined for him."
(Nahjul Balagha: Sermons, letters and saying of Hazrat Ali (Second American edition, 1981), Sayings of Hazrat Ali 44, p. 277)
Ya Ali, Ya NOOR Mowlana Shah Karim Al-Hussaini Hazar Imam, grant us, our families, our Jamats, the worldwide Jamat, the Muslim Ummah, and humanity at large, luminous (noorani) and spiritual (ruhani) ta'id (help) to advance materially, spiritually and intellectually.
