Personal Journey Thru The Quran: Al Jathiya , 45 : 34-37

"And it will be said: This day We forget you, even as ye forgot the meeting of this your day; and your habitation is the Fire, and there is none to help you.
This, forasmuch as ye made the revelations of Allah a jest, and the life of the world beguiled you. Therefor this day they come not forth from thence, nor can they make amends.
Then praise be to Allah, Lord of the heavens and Lord of the earth, the Lord of the Worlds.
And unto Him (alone) belongeth Majesty in the heavens and the earth, and He is the Mighty, the Wise."
Surah Al Jathiya , 45 : 34-37


The worst predicament for us is not in the fact that today or tomorrow we might get a massive thrombo-embolic stroke or a major heart attack or some form of terminal cancer ; or lose millions in the share market ; a near fatal motor vehicle accident ; or for some title-chaser, still not being 'considered' for a belated Tan Sri-ship from the Agong after being a mere federal Datuk waiting in the limelight for umpteenth years while so and so who is just an average bloke of a deputy KSN already had his three years back.

The worst calamity that could befall us would be His Most Beneficent's refusal to grant us an audience to 'see' His Grace on 'That Day' when nothing else matter.

Life, like golf, is not how we start but how we execute the end game!
