And may Allah, Rabbul Izzat, forgive me if I got even a single letter of the Hadith Sharif wrong!
Is this part of the same Hadith Sharif that starts out with the words:
Yu’dheenee Ibnu Adam! Yasubbud-Dahr!
Can someone help us with this Hadith Sharif?
In the meantime, here is something I want all of us to know and to think:
This time around, it may be two feet of snow we are buried under! Buta time will come, who knows how soon or how late, but as sure as there is breath in our body, when we will be buried in a cylindrical dark hole, under 10 feet of dirt.
The good news is this:
The Snow Will Melt! It Always Does!
The other news is this -- I do not want to automatically call it bad news:
The dirt stays.
It generally does not melt away when Winter passes into Spring
and when Spring turns into Summer,
as snow does.
This other news, the one about the Narrow Cylindrical Dark Hole, 10 feet deep, and the 10 feet of dirt on top, can be Good or Bad, depending on who you were, and what you did, during the life that you lived on this earth.
And, of course, depending on to what degree God Almighty’s Boundless Love and Mercy embrace and envelope you -- such as you are: a flawed and sinful individual!

Every man's -- and I suppose every woman's -- "permanent" address, as they call it, in this most obviously and stubbornly impermanent world, is as follows:

The battle of wits between the advocates of Faith and Skepticism never advanced much beyond the argument that Hazrat Ali, Radiyallahu Anhu, put forward 1400 years ago.
Hazrat Ali wrote a little couplet in which he said this – he was a great ...
"Islam places in the hands of all of us a most personal and intimate miracle: How to defy death every time it strikes.
Here is how.
“Everything shall perish,” the Qur’an declares, “except him!”
Reference is to God.
Islam defines human mortality in a ...
“Pleasure for many people is the path they pursue through life. Pain is often the price they pay for many of the pleasures they seek in this world. Islam modulates pleasure, and optimizes it, while minimizing pain and distancing it. ...
“Most people fear Death. And it is not entirely unnatural. But some people fear Truth more than they fear Death. In most cases, they are criminals, crooks and scoundrels of varying shades and stripes.” (Dr. Pasha)
