In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful
Retirement Planning

Indeed in the Messenger of Allah (Muhammad) you have a good example to follow for him who hopes for (the Meeting with) Allah and the Last Day, and remembers Allah much, (Al_Quran:033.021).

Those who have born must have to die regardless of any discrimination. Every Muslims must always prepare what rewards he wants to get on the Day of Judgment, which includes training their kids & family as well, (Ref: Al_Quraan_066.006).

Prophet Muhammad (Peace-Be-Upon-Him), lived in the world up to age of 63 years. That we number one must have to keep in his/her mind. If one passed before that age, it is from Allah, and his call has come for him/her. But if one lives over 63 years of age, it is a bonus life for him/her. Prepare yourselves and train your kids & family to face all the modern challenges depending upon your limited resources.

We need to note down, what we want to achieve on the Day of Judgment, which is not only dependent of Prayers (Salah), rather each and every commandments of Allah in the Quraan.

Every Masjid must have extremely restricted WiFi ready, folding chairs and tables, where Muslims can bring their own laptops/netbooks and in the state of Itikaf do research on the Quraan and share it to others.

Concept of Just one thing or at least do one thing is totally wrong. The message of the Quraan is at most NOT at least. Just think about Zakaat (Charity), which is very common among Muslims that it is 2.5% while the Quraan say whatever in excess (surplus) you have, you need to give in Zakaat (Charity), (Ref: Al_Quraan_002.219).

Generally Muslims are giving importance to Prayers (Salah) only, which is totally wrong. There is NO Individual Islaam, rather it is Collective Islaam, in which each and every Muslim is helpful to others as much as possible without being over burden in addition to Prayers (Salah). Believers, men and women, are Auliyaa (helpers & protectors), (Ref: Al_Quraan_009.017).

Challenges are a lot from around the globe. Now it is time for all of us to open our eyes and return back and reflect on the Quraan and Authentic Sunnah.

Justice is a central theme in the Quraan, dictating the traditions of law and how should put into practice.

Be judge to yourself, your kids & family, your community, your City, Province, State, Country and Global World etc., in the light of the Quraan, since those who are unjust are disbelievers, (Ref: Al_Quraan_005.044-047).

Demands of Quraan:

1>    to believe in the Quraan;

2>    to read it;
3>    to understand it;
4>    to act upon its teachings;
5>    to convey its message and teachings to others.

… Recite the Quraan in slow, measured rhythmic tones, (Al_Quraan_073.004).

(So don’t rush to finish it, instead take your time to understand each and every Ayaat and REFLECT on it.)

Be a Role Model for your Child as well as to the society. And make Duaa.
O my Lord! Increase me in knowledge. (Ref: Al_Quraan_020.114) AMEEN.
O our Lord! grant us in our wives and our children the joy of our eyes, and make us guides to those who guard (against evil). (Al_Quraan_025.074) AMEEN.
Parent must help their kids from the day they born, for their Retirement Plan according to the Quraan.
Crystal Clear Messages are Millions of times better than Cosmetics and Calligraphies (Khatati), etc.
