Save me!

We will embark upon a Day which shall be the first and last of its kind. A day when the child’s hair will grey, the pregnant woman will miscarry and mankind will be rendered to a drunken way.[1] The day Allaah will tell our Father, Adam, who from his offspring is for the Fire:

“Out of each thousand, take out 999.” [2]

The Day that man will bite his hands in regret and wish he had taken a way with the Messenger [3] (صلى الله عليه وسلم). The Day he will curse himself for sinning in the life which passes like a dream, only to be faced with the consequences for an eternity.

He will cry for destruction when he hears the roars of the Hellfire.[4] One will wish he were turned to dust, as is the fate of the animals on that Day[5]. How far he shall fall from his self regarding greatness, from his self proclaimed status, from his self centred vainness.

We will embark upon a Day in which our only concern will be salvation. Saving ourselves from damnation. Our only concern will be protecting our skin. Forgotten will be our ties of kin[6].

We are driving to our Lord, and this Day is the station. Following its end is but two destinations. Delight or destruction is all there will be. And a cry made in vain from the losers…

“Please… Save me!”

Info about book (58 pages) from back cover:

Before you, O reader are ten parables from the Qur’aan wherein our Lord and Creator, the One Alone deserving of our worship, has revealed parables by which we may be guided to His worship and servitude and warned against associating partners in worship alongside Him. He, the Most High, has stated:

“See you not how Allaah sets forth a parable?..”

The parables are explained by Imaam As-Sa’dee in a manner that causes one to reflect and one’s Eemaan to be strengthened and increaed. As Imaam As-Sa’dee, may Allaah’s Mercy be upon him, states:

“So giving parables which show concepts in the light of physical examples enables the meaning which Allaah intended to become fully clear and apparent.”

We pray that Allaah, the Most High, brings about benefit by way of this beautiful explanation of Imaam As-Sa’dee.
