The recent ‘salt contaminated’ water supply crisis in Port Shepstone saw the Muslim community rising to the need of desperate residents.
Among the signs of a munafiq (hypocrite), as indicated in the hadith, are three: viz. when he speaks, he lies; when he makes a promise, he does not fulfill it; and when he is entrusted with something, he breeches that trust. It’s thus incumbent for a Muslim to be extremely cautious and mindful of not being ensnared by this disastrous trap.
When a Mu’min rises after death, in his grave, he will most surely be carrying his “bag of deeds”. Additionally, the two angels that accompanied him during his entire lifetime will also be present.
Every living being will experience and taste the pangs of death. There is no escape from this finality! Death is a reality which is inescapable irrespective of the status of the person or his/her relationship with Allah Ta’ala.
