Today, we as Muslims, We witness major disasters, diseases and instability all around us but ignore them. Instead, mankind has increased in arrogance and blindness, instead of having the humbleness and humility in trying to seek forgiveness and guidance from Allah SWT.
Today, we are so occupied about maintaining our materialistic life that we ignore the signs of Allah flashing before us, all of which are reminders and a wake-up calls for us. What is the implication? The blindness will increase, the sign of Allah will increase, and the torture of Allah can descend upon us.
And among them are those who listen to you, but We have placed over their hearts coverings, lest they understand it, and in their ears deafness. And if they should see every sign, they will not believe in it. Even when they come to you arguing with you, those who disbelieve say, “This is not but legends of the former peoples.” (Al Qur’an 6:25)
Do they [then] wait for anything except that the angels should come to them or your Lord should come or that there come some of the signs of your Lord? The Day that some of the signs of your Lord will come no soul will benefit from its faith as long as it had not believed before or had earned through its faith some good. Say, “Wait. Indeed, we [also] are waiting.” (Al Qur’an 6:158)
