Wish To Be Dust
Medihah Hussain (Group Ruqayyah)
Indeed, We have warned you of a near punishment on the Day when a man will observe what his hands have put forth and the disbeliever will say, “Oh, I wish that I were dust!” [An Naba:40]
How many times have we wished we had never existed because something went against our will? Even the slightest thought counts. However, how will it feel to want to be dust before Allah (swt)? What brings a person to the point where they wish they would have ceased to exist? It scares me to know that our deeds or the lack thereof will have us humiliated and degraded before the almighty. Oh Allah (swt) save us from being in their places and give us success! Ameen.
