We all live in life where sacrifice are born to be made,
Sacrifice of love for family or many others,
Many don’t know the power of sacrifice,
At times sacrifice can just be like a small buy dying of thirst,
But when it get some water on his way home he saw a dying flower,
And used little of the water he had to brightened the flower,
Then the second day the kid hurt his leg,
But was told by the mother to look for the same flower he watered as pain reliever,
The little boy made a sacrifice and also gain from it.
Why not sacrifice this Duniya (Worldly life),
For the Akhirah (Hereafter) where there is reward,
Allah loves those who sacrifice their repose,
And arise in the depths of the night to glorify the word of their Lord,
Real love comes with sacrifice
So what have you done for the sake of Allah?
Sacrifices are tough. But when you do it for the sake of Allah,
Knowing that Allah awaits to reward you,
That makes it all the more worth it.
Sacrifice is a merit,
And since man is one of the most perfect created things,
Sacrifice befits him first and being a human necessitates it.
The sacrifice Prophet Abraham made in offering his son,
We called out to him “O Abraham! …
“Thou hast already fulfilled the vision!”
Thus indeed do We reward those who do right.
And We gave him the good news of Ishaq (Isaac) – a prophet,- one of the righteous.
We blessed him and Isaac: but of their progeny are (some) that do right, and (some)that obviously do wrong, to themselves.
There are two distinct good news,
The first one about a forbearing son
and the second one about the good news of Ishaq (Isaac)
Sacrifice your Duniya for the Akhirah,
Sacrifice your time by offering Solat,
Sacrifice your Humanity for good deeds,
For Allah is all hearing…..
Surah Al-Baqara, Verse 262:
الَّذِينَ يُنفِقُونَ أَمْوَالَهُمْ فِي سَبِيلِ اللَّهِ ثُمَّ لَا يُتْبِعُونَ مَا أَنفَقُوا مَنًّا وَلَا أَذًى لَّهُمْ أَجْرُهُمْ عِندَ رَبِّهِمْ وَلَا خَوْفٌ عَلَيْهِمْ وَلَا هُمْ يَحْزَنُونَ
(As for) those who spend their property in the way of Allah, then do not follow up what they have spent with reproach or injury, they shall have their reward from their Lord, and they shall have no fear nor shall they grieve.
