From the chapter on ‘The Day of Judgement’: Tanbih Al-Ghafileen

 

It was said:

“Verily, a father will cling to his son on the Day of Resurrection and say to him: “O son! What kind of a father was I to you during your life?” The son will then speak verily highly andgreatly of his father. The man will then say to his son: “My son! Verily, I am in need of just an atom’sweight of your good deeds. It might be that I am saved from what you are witnessing!” His son willthen say to him: “I fear for myself the same thing that you fear for yourself! I do not have the luxuryof giving you anything!”

 

The man will then go and cling to his wife and say to her: “O such-and such,what kind of a husband was I to you during your life?” The wife will then speak very highly andgreatly of her husband. The man will then say to her: “I am asking you for just one good deed(hasanah) to donate to me. It might be that I am saved from what you are witnessing!” So, she willsay: “I cannot do this! I fear for myself the same thing that you fear for yourself!”

 

It was said further:

Brothers and sisters! Prepare for a day like this with righteous and good actions! Prepare by abandoning sins and acts of disobedience, for you will very soon witness the Day of Ressurection first-hand and you will regret every second that passed of your life!

 

And know that as soon as youdie, then your judgement day begins! So, it is upon you – O possessor of intelligence – to have patience upon the hardships of a life of obedience to Allah – the Exalted – in order that you maylighten the hardships of the Day of Resurrection, and Allah is the One who Guides.
