  1. hmmm, Innalilahi wa inna ilehi rajiun, Jazakumllahu khairan for this great reminder, may Allah reward and increase you in knowledge.

  2. JazakAllah khayr for the insight.
    This is what I digested from the article:
    1. Plant the seed of action(of doing good deeds) promptly.
    2. Seek knowledge with curiosity.
    3. Habituate to charity and forgiveness before it is too late.
    4. Schedule your daily tasks and prioritize the obligatory duties without exceptions.
    5. Think twice before you write or say something. Is this good?
    6. Take stock of yourself and assess what you learned or did especially matters related to the hereafter.
    7. Always have a sincere intentions and purpose in your actions.
    This is a long list of deeds. May Allah give us the tafiiq to accomplish or establish this highly challenging deeds in our life. Ameen.

    • Thank you Said for taking the time to summarize the actionable items! Helps reinforce the message and gives a “2 minute version” for those who might be too busy to read the whole article
      May Allah enable us all to listen to the reminder and follow the best of it

  3. Ma sha Allaah. I would try to set aside time out of my busy schedule to learn Islmaam, so i could be more productive Insha Allaah

  4. Assalamu alaikum
    It is obligatory for all to seek knowledge.Because it is only the way to learn and understand our duties to fulfill them so get succeed in this life and here after life .

  5. As salaam alaikum.
    A very informative and beautiful article brother. It’s really inspiring too. We as Muslims really need to have our eyes and mind on the akhirah while going about our daily mundane life. If we realize this concept then I guess the world itself and our life’s purpose in this world will be crystal clear to us and life will become THE main purpose of beautifying the akhirah. May Allah SWT give us the proper guidance and help us achieve a perfect akhirah and Jannatul firdous. Ameen. Jazaak Allah Khair for your work.

  6. MashaAllah!!! Very inspiring
    Alhamdulillah I’m happy to be a part of the productive Muslim team
    JazakAllahu khairan
    Pls keep posting more such articles

  7. Masha Allah!!! Very inspiring write up on being akhira oriented productive. It really resonates with me as I have recently enrolled into various online courses in order to perfect my acts of ibada and connection with Allah The Almighty. Alhamdulillah, this has come at a right time for me and has motivated me to put more effort in seeking knowledge. May Allah grant us sincerity of purpose (ikhlaas) and proper niyyah in what we do. Ameen.
    Jazakallah khair

  8. Assalamualaikum! I have been enlightened about how to make my time and energy useful for the greatest benefits of Akhirah. JazakAllahu Khair.

  9. Jazaka Allahu khairan
    Great article to remind us truth
    You can say it happened to me as you have imagined. I am a blood cancer patient since three years back when I was diagnosed with that I due to others thing’s happening in my life I got one think deep into my heart that was tawakkul Al Allah and this disease become a great source for me to get closure to Allah and I explored great depths of Islamic knowledge and mainly Arabic language from that day I decided that I should not waste any hour of my life wasting in useless activities
    May Allah let us all understand that one day we have to meet our lord and we will be accounted for our every single deed we did

    Assalamu alaikum
    May Allah bless you all And me as well

    • subhana Allah,
      thanks for sharing your experience with it and Wallah I was touched by your story and your situation..
      It is easy to talk about being prepared for the afterlife, but for someone to ACTUALLY be in that position, we have a lot of things to learn from you .. you also may write about your experience in details (like how does your day look like) and insha Allah we will benefit from it
      may Allah give you shifaa and recovery, and help us all get closer to him.. No one knows who is closer to the hereafter than the rest of humanity, as many healthy people have died waaay early in their lives


      • جزاك الله خيرا يا أخي
        Indeed I am pleased that you replied me. I have a lot to share but as you said about my routine so that other could benefit from it. May Allah accept all our good deeds and forgive our sins Amin. I start up by waking before fajr azan get ready for prayer recite some portion from Quran and then revising my learned chapters by seeing in the mushaf to perfect my memorization then after salah in masjid which is not far from my home I read the translation of that portion of Quran which I have read before. Since I got much time in morning so after reading translation I read some hadith with commentry like Riyad us saliheen or Mariful hadith I mean simple books to understand so that I don’t become overwhelmed after some days and restricting to 10-15 min only so that I don’t stop after some days as I mentioned ,after that since I am a student of Arabic language as well so a portion of Arabic grammar and then simple but religious story books in Arabic language that’s all for morning then I do my secular studies as I am doing graduation in physics then preparing for college if i had to go otherwise I prepare for my exams which is coming in march after praying zuhr I teach Arabic language whatever i have learned to one my friend then a short nap then after asar till magrib i try to study a tafsir book or memorize or revise some duas or just talk with my friends after magrib, college studies after Isha some dawah work thats all I do normally

        All I said is just for someone to benefit I am not perfect but I try to be better as I can, May Allah accept it from me and from us all and remove my shortcomings Amin ya Rabb al Aalmeen

        My beloved brother

  14. I have never ever read any of your articles before ( because I never tried to seek knowledge) and I know now that i must have missed a lot.
    Dear Sir! This article was so good, No words, No Words at ALL.
    just the last part, you could have clarified a bit more.
    Assalaamu Alaikum

    • Wa alaykum assalam akhi and thanks for the constructive feedback
      Which part do you think needs more clarification?
      Is it the poetry or the action items???

      • assalaamu alaikum
        I think I made a mistake by using the word clarify,never had good grammar anyway. I meant that, you know, just keep the baby steps a bit more detailed.
        The poetry was not at all confusing, as a matter of fact it was a gem of inspiration. NOT EXXAGERATING!!!

  15. “Among the most beloved of deeds to Allah is the one that is continuous even if it is little.” Prophet Muhammad SAW

  16. Jazaka allah khair for such a beautiful article
    My life is quite like that as you described in the article after i was diagonosed as a cancer patient Allah made me near to him now three years from diagnosis I thank Allah that he made me closer to him as in this period i tried to plant many trees for akhirah and i realised that actually we don’t have to wait for planting seeds but slowly and gradually we have to do it in our whole life In this period i make effort to learn araBic language and i benefitted a lot and so i say to world don’t wait for doing things for akhirah latter but as you don’t know when your death will come and meet And then you won’t be able to do any thing
    جزاك الله خيرا

  17. subhanAllah ! JazakAllah, for inspiring and helpful article
    Allah grant me and all who want to take positive action, the courage and help to follow through successfully In shaa Allah aameen

    • Ameen, may Allah enable us to apply what we read / preach and make us walking examples of His Quran and His Deen

    • Thank you for sharing your post.. Indeed our worries and concerns should reflect in the way we plan for our life vs. our afterlife

  18. jazakallahu qair brother!!! may Allah reward you.aameen
    I feel if we associate our every task with akhirah ,we will have a good life in both the worlds …..In Shaa Allah…may Allah help us to become productive muslims.Ameen

  19. Baarak Allahu feek Dr Mohannad. I especially liked the line ‘You are to be judged by how “productive” you were in planting your seeds and won’t be held accountable for the actual fruits.’

    It really encompasses the attitude of a Productive Muslim in having sincere intentions and working hard.

    May Al Fattah ease the path for us all to plant our seeds aameen Allahumma aameen

  20. Jazak’Allah Khair
    The article reminds me of a hadith: “In the evening, do not anticipate the morning, and in the morning do not anticipate the evening. Take from your health for your illness and from your life for your death.” [al-Bukhari]
