“CALL YOURSELF TO ACCOUNT, BEFORE YOU ARE CALLED TO ACCOUNT WEIGH YOUR DEEDS BEFORE IT GETS WEIGHED FOR YOU; AND PREPARE YOURSELVES FOR THE GREAT EXHIBITION.”
Isnvest in your health before you become ill, Invest in your free time before you become busy, Invest in your wealth before you become poor. Invest in your life before you die, live in this life as if a stranger who is passing by a town, when you wake up in the morning do not expect to live until the evening, if you live until the evening do not expect to wake up in the morning. This great month of Ramadan; bringing all kinds of good and glad tidings; during it mercy descends and sins are forgiven and pardon is granted; the gates of Paradise are opened, the gates of the Hell fire are sealed and the devils are chained, so will you utilize this opportunity and take advantage of this great chance?
Take advantage of this month to hold yourself to account and practice self reproach, it is the right time for one to rectify the ruined relation with his Lord and open a new page in his life, it is a good chance to return to Allah and rush towards Him. You must sit with yourself in seclusion every once in a while and reproach yourself and hold yourself to account, Start with the obligatory matters and make up the shortage in them Refrain from any sin you are committing, like severing ties with kinfolk, lying, backbiting, gazing at thing that are forbidden, and so forth, Sincerely repent from all the sins you have committed, and express your regret to your Lord and supplicate for His forgiveness and weep, Rush to performing good deeds to make up for what you have missed out on.
Before doing anything hold yourself to account as to why do you want to do it and what do you intend? For whose sake will you do it? How will you do it and will it be in accordance to the way of Prophet (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wa Sallam) or not? What will you benefit from doing it? When one a himself these questions, he will always be alert and controlling himself, this is the only way towa winning the eternal happiness and success, as Allah Says (what means): “And whoever obeys At and His Messenger and fears Allah and is conscious of Him, it is those who are the Successful.” [Quran 24:52]
