One of the best experience of my life!!!


 An experience by a sister who wishes to remain anonymous.

Bismillah Ar Rahman Ar Raheem
 
All praise be to Allah Subhana Wa ta’ala
 
Once in school we had an Arabic class field trip. We went to a park and then to an Arabian restaurant. It was Dhuhr prayer time, so we all went to the masjid nearby. I went inside the masjid. It was Friday, so I found many Muslim sisters listening to the Khutbah. I joined them along with my classmates. I was in eleventh grade then. The first part of the Khutbah was in Arabic then the second part was in English. It was an amazing Khutbah mashaAllah! I was so happy listening to it. I don’t remember if I was crying also.
 


After the salah was done, we all were getting ready to leave. I looked around the masjid. There were few newsletters near a table. I went ahead and picked up one of the newsletter. I got inside the bus. Now I decided to read what was in the newsletter. There was a Hadith posted on the first page. While reading it, my heart felt different. I was unable to control my feelings. My heart beat was racing like no other. I felt so happy SubhanAllah.
 
This was the Hadith:
 
What Allah The Exalted Has Prepared For Believers In Paradise
 

Abu Huraira (RadiAllahu Anhu) has related that the Prophet SalAllahu Alayhi Wa Sallam said, “Allah said He has prepared for His virtuous servants things which no eye has seen, and no ear has heard and no human mind has ever thought of.” Bukhari and Muslim

 

Allah will call the dwellers of Paradise, and they will respond, “Here we are, our Lord, and all good is in Your hands.” He will ask them,” Are you satisfied?” And they will answer, “How can we not be satisfied, our Lord, when You have bestowed on us such bounties never bestowed on any of Your other creations?” Allah will ask them, “Shall I not bestow on you something better than that?” The dwellers of paradise will ask, “What could be better, our Lord?”. Allah will say, “I bestow on you My Pleasure, and I shall never be angry with you hereafter.” (Bukhari & Muslim)

 

When the dwellers of Paradise have entered, Allah will ask them: Do you want anything more that I should give you? They will answer: Oh Allah, have You not made our faces shining? Have you not admitted us to Paradise and saved us from Hell? What more could be desired? Then the veil will be withdrawn, and the dwellers of Paradise will not have known anything dearer to them than looking at their Lord. (Muslim)

 
ALLAHU AKBAR!!
 
SubhanAllah after reading this I rejoiced! I felt like I was the most happiest person on earth. I can’t even describe my feelings that day. It was my first time reading this Hadith and I felt so many emotions. I almost went crazy feeling love for Allah Subhana Wa Ta’ala.
 
In a moment, all my happiness went away. I started crying so hard. I didn’t know if I would be among those people of paradise? How can I not be able to see my Lord? I cried and cried but I told myself InshaAllah I will do my best to be among the people of paradise.
 
I reached school. My heart was still full of joy! In my happiness, I was so out of control that day. Usually I am very quiet. I was so shy and hardly talked to people in the school. This day, I wasn’t quiet or anything. I was so happy and I wanted to share my happiness with everyone. I went to the library and almost every girl there I went to the groups and individuals and read them the Hadith. “look at this!! This is so beautiful subhanAllah!!” I kept saying it but sadly hardly anyone’s reaction was like mine. They listened but then got busy with their talking and reading. Still, I was just so happy. After going home, I shared it with my family. I went to my front yard and read the Hadith to the trees. I sound crazy but i was so happy Alhamdulillah. I thanked Allah Subhana Wa ta’ala. Make du’as.
 
May Allah Subhana Wa Ta’ala make us among the people of Paradise and make us among those first people who get to see Him Ameen Allahu Akbar!!
