As it draws nearer to us everyday, we try to not think of it. Death. We have adopted a love for this world and fear of death and the hereafter. The thought of dying is so far from our minds that we do not think to prepare for it; instead we leave the preparation for tomorrow. But will there be a tomorrow for you? What if death was to pay you a visit before you expected it – what if today was your last day on earth. What will you do? In this lecture, you will come to realise that you may not see another day in this world, and you must prepare now for the hereafter. Sheikh Feiz explains how short life is and how valuable the time you spend here really is. You will learn that you are only a traveller in this life and eternity awaits you in the hereafter. So collect your good deeds, for this may be your last day on earth.
I heard Allah’s Apostle saying “Islam has been built on five [pillars]: testifying that there is no god but Allah and that Muhammed is the messenger of Allah, performing the prayers, paying the zakat, making the pilgrimage to the House, and fasting in Ramadan. — Narrated by Ibn Omar, the son of Omar bin Al-Khattab, Bukhari and Muslim
