Delay Has Consequences [Quote - 542]

Published Categorised as Quote-Unquote, Quote-Unquote – Book VI (501-600)

Islam means one simple thing -- along with so many other things.

It means "Taking the Qur'an to Every Home and Heart that Needs It -- and Which One Does Not?"

And those who commit themselves to this goal may claim that they are "Working for Allah."

What these people need to do is to start appreciating the urgency -- if not immediacy -- of the situation they are in. 

That is, for every day, or hour, or minute they delay things and put off doing this -- I mean "Taking the Qur'an to Every Home and Heart that Needs It -- and Which One Does Not?" -- there is no telling how many of the roughly 8,000,000,000 (eight billion) people of the world they will be losing to their cause.

People, who, if these other people had gotten to them in time, that is a day or an hour or a minute earlier, might have leaped to their feet and said "Labbaik!" to their call and accepted and embraced the divine gift of the Qur'an that they were being offered.

But now, because of that delay of one day, one hour or one minute, who knows how many of them died without ever setting eyes on the Qur'an; without ever hearing the message of the Qur'an; and without ever being given the opportunity to say "Yes!" to their Creator.

And how many of them were plucked by Shaitan and locked up in his dungeons out of which they cannot escape.

This realization should give those "Working for Allah" a better appreciation of the absolute urgency that is involved in their work.
