A Humble reminder

One day of the many days there was a man traveling on a trip with his wife and kids and on the way he met someone standing in the roadway, he asked him: “Who are you?”
I am the money!” he replied,

The man asked his wife and kids, “Should we ask him to ride with us?” They said together, “Yes of course because with the money it can help us if we wanted to do anything and if we wanted to get anything we desired”.
So they took the Money to ride with them.

The vehicle continued its way until the man met someone else on the road and the Father asked, “Who are you?” He said “I am the Power and High Position”.
Father asked his wife and kids, “Should we ask him to ride with us?” They all answered together in one voice, “Yes, of course because with the high position and power we have the ability to do anything we want and own anything we desired”.
And they took the Power and High Position with them and their vehicle continued on its trip.

Likewise, they met in the same manner many others which give them pleasures and desires of their life.

UNTIL ….. They met one more on the way…..

The Father asked “Who are you?” and he got the answer “I am the Deen (Islam)” Father asked his wife and kids shall we take him with us and all said together in one voice, “No, no, no this is not the right time, we desire the pleasures of this life and dunyah, and the Deen will prevent us and ban us from these things and it will take control over us, and we will be worn-out from being loyal to it and its learning. And the halal and the Haram, and prayer and hijab, and this fasting, and and and and and etc, It will be a burden upon us!!! But what is certain is that we will definitely return for him to pick him up but only after we enjoy this life and everything in it.

So sadly they left him behind and the vehicle continued its trip.

Finally, out of no where something appeared in the middle of the road. It was a check point and it had a sign saying


And they found someone gesturing for the father to get out of the vehicle.
He said to the father, “The trip has ended as far as you are concerned, and it is upon you to get out and come with me”.

The father was shocked with fear and did not say a word.

So he asked the father, “I am searching for the DEEN-e-Islam, Is he with you”?

Father answered, “No I left him not too far back and if you can let me go back, I can get him quickly”.

“You do not have the ability to go back, your trip has ended and there is no going back from this point…. returning is impossible” he got the answer.

“But I have Money, Power, High Position and My Wife and Kids and and and and and and and etc”.

The man said to him:
They will not benefit you nor will they protect you in front of Allah. Not one bit!
And you will leave all of this, and not one of them will help you except the one you left behind, you know?

So the father asked the person with great sad, “And who are you exactly”?


“The one which you were needless of and did not take into account in your trip”.

The father looked at his vehicle and found his wife taking control of it and continuing the trip with all of its passengers. None of them wants to stay with him, and none of them helped him at this check point.
