A finger in the ocean!Posted: June 17, 2012
The Prophet, salah allahu ‘alayhi wa salam, said:
“This world, in comparison with the world to come, is the same as if one of you were to put his finger in the ocean. Consider how much you would have when you pulled it out.” [Muslim]
والله ما الدنيا في الآخرة إلا مثل ما يجعل أحدكم أصبعه في اليم فلينظر بم يرجع) رواه مسلم)
Subhanna Allah..the akhira is like the vast horizon of the ocean, and this world is nothing more than placing your finger in it and coming out with less than a droplet! That’s how tiny and insignificant the world is compared to the hereafter.
So, which one will we choose?
