Am I Prepared?

I Listened to the explanation of Chapters 21 and 22 of the Quraan today, at the mosque, and they make so much more sense now

"Draws near for mankind their reckoning, while they turn away in heedlessness." (Al-Anbiya 21:1)

"O mankind! Fear your Lord and be dutiful to Him! Verily the earthquake of the Hour (Day of Judgement) is a terrible thing."

"The Day you shall see it, every nursing mother will forget her nursling, and every pregnant one will drop her load, and shall see mankind as in a drunken state, yet they will not be drunken, but severe will be the Torment of Allah" (Al-Hajj 22:1-2)

Narrated Abu Huraira: The Prophet pbuh said, "The Hour (Last Day) will not be established until (religious) knowledge will be taken away (by the death of religious learned men), earthquakes will be very frequent, time will pass quickly, afflictions will appear, murders will increase and money will overflow amongst you." (See Hadith No. 85 Vol 1). [bukari]
Its Allah's mercy in a way to send us these warnings. Its time to prepare!

"...and let every soul look to what it sends forth for the morrow" [Al-Hashr 59:18]
