Second by second passed without any awareness in the soul that the essence of the opportunity to live in this world is nothing but to worship the Almighty and should be used carefully to prepare provisions for the future in the hereafter.
The days passed without leaving any traces of kindness. For yourself alone, not for others. This soul is even more complacent by the jokes of the world. And not a few mistakes have been made, but never remember that all have their accountability before God.
What a dzalim we are, claiming to be servants of God, but sins are still committed shamelessly before the Creator. Tested with various kinds of calamities, tests, even to the point of enjoyment, you never realize this self-humiliation. So we need to know from this, it has become an obligation for all of us to rush to wake up from our current nightmares and rise up to meet eternal life with prayer and worship.
Regretting the mistakes that have been made is okay, but there is no need to overdo regret, because the best person who makes mistakes is he who repents. So, don't wallow too long in futility, for it will only make us fall and despair even more. Our task is how to cover up our mistakes yesterday by multiplying istighfar and charity.
When life has not yet reached the throat, then that is where God still gives us the opportunity to repent. There is a man who, while in the world, is tired of pursuing the world, but then he comes to his senses before his death and after that he tries to constantly wet his lips with the phrase istighfar, showering his heart by continuing to remember Rabbul 'Alamin and decorating himself with good deeds in order to repent. It's really lucky for this kind of person. Then it is necessary for us to repent so that one day we can become lucky people by God's side as explained in the word of Allah Surah an-Nur verse 31:
وَتُوبُوٓا۟ إِلَى ٱللَّهِ جَمِيعًا أَيُّهَ ٱلْمُؤْمِنُونَ لَعَلَّكُمْ تُفْلِحُونَ
"And repent ye all unto God, O men of faith that ye may be fortunate." (QS.an-Nur : 31)
We will never know when the death will come, but at least we know and realize that our presence on this earth is not long, like a traveler who only hitchhikes a short stop that he will later return to the real environment. So let us be self-righteous, have we repented of the tyranny, the tyranny we often or even always do?For death does not wait for our torah, but rather we who wait for death by repenting.
