Be prompt in doing good deeds

Abu Hurayrah (radi Allahu anhu) reported that the Messenger of Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said, “Be prompt in doing good deeds (before you are overtaken) by turbulence which would be like a part of the dark night. A man would be a believer in the morning and turn to disbelief in the evening, or he would be a believer in the evening and turn disbelief in the morning, and would sell his Faith for worldly goods.”

[Sahih Muslim]

Commentary:

This Hadith tells that the Day of  Resurrection will be preceded by a long chain of calamities. Because of the rush of these calamities, religion and Faith will lose their value in people. There will be a race for wealth, so much so that people would not hesitate to compromise their religion and Faith to acquire wealth. People will rapidly change their faces. This is what is actually happening. In this situation true believers are exhorted to adhere strictly to Faith and perform noble deeds without delay.

And Allah Knows Best!
