The Meeting

(A short reminder!)

I am leaving
Have your breakfast...
No! I’ll get late for the meeting!
Oh! You’ll take the bus?
No… I can’t wait for the bus, I’ll take the cab. I can’t afford to miss this meeting or even get late!

SubhanAllaah! How many times do we come across or use such statements in our daily lives? How many times do we have appointments, which we may never want to miss or even be late at? We want to be well-prepared to meet the one with whom we have an appointment. We also make sure that we put our case in the best possible way to the one we are about to meet or give a proper presentation. We see to it that we impress the one whom we are meeting and that the things go on smoothly. At times these meetings get postponed or even cancelled, but be sure that there is a meeting fixed for all of us. It will not be delayed nor cancelled. It will come on its fixed time. ‘The Meeting’ with our Creator on the Day of Judgment!

O you assembly of Jinns and mankind, had the messengers not come to you, from among yourselves, who used to relate My Aayat to you, and used to warn you of the meeting of this Day of yours?” [al-Qur’an (6:130)]

It will be the Day when every one of us will be gathered for reckoning. From the first man Adam (عليه السلام) to the last human that will come and all the jinn and other living beings. Everyone! All gathered together at one place. Irrelevant of whether we want or do not want; we will soon be standing in front of our Lord giving an account of our life on this earth.

We become and remain so eager/curious or nervous for the appointments of this world. How about the Appointment with the One Who Created Us? Ask yourself, just as I ask myself, do we even think about it? Do we prepare for the meeting? The Day when our deeds will judged. Our eternal fate will be declared - forever Paradise or forever Hell. What have we prepared for it? The Day when all our deeds will be placed in front of us. How will we present our Case? The Day when we will be judged as to how we fared in the short duration that we lived on earth.

Every soul will taste death, and you will only be given your [full] compensation on the Day of Resurrection. So he who is drawn away from the Fire and admitted to Paradise has attained [his desire]. And what is the life of this world except the enjoyment of delusion.” [al-Qur’an (3:185)]

The Day of Judgment will come at its appointed time. There is no delaying it. No one knows when it will be established, except Allaah.

O Muslims, ready yourselves for the Big Meeting, for the Grand Appointment. Prepare yourself by correcting your Eemaan and Aqeedah and rectifying your deeds. Remember death will overtake us anytime. Start preparing for your Akhirah, for the Meeting with your Lord. If that Meeting is successful, inshaAllaah, eternal bliss or else sufferings; which one you choose? How would you want the Meeting and the Result to be, is upon you!

So whoever hopes for the meeting with his Lord, let him work righteousness and associate none as a partner in the worship of his Lord.” [al-Qur’an (18:110)]

As for those who do not believe in meeting Us and are quite happy with the life of this world and are content with it, and those who are heedless to Our signs, they are the ones whose abode is the Fire, because of what they used to earn for themselves.” [al-Qur’an (10:7-8)]
