“Be in this world as though you were a stranger or a wayfarer.”…Prophet Muhammad (Sallallahu ‘Alaihi waSallam)



On the authority of Abdullah ibn Umar (RadhiyAllahu ‘anhuma), who said: The Messenger of Allah (SallaAllahu ‘alayhi wasallam) took me by the shoulder and said,

“Be in this world as though you were a stranger or a wayfarer.”

And Ibn Umar (RahiyAllahu ‘anhuma) used to say, “In the evening do not expect [to live until] the morning, and in the morning do not expect [to live until] the evening. Take [advantage of] your health before times of sickness, and [take advantage of] your life before your death.”


Hazreti Abdullah ibni Ömer radıyallahu anh şöyle diyor: Allah Rasulü sallallahu aleyhi ve sellem, kolumdan tuttu ve

“Dünyada bir garip veya bir yolcu gibi ol”

buyurdular. İbn Ömer Hazretleri devamla: “Akşama erdin mi sabahı bekleme, sabaha erdin mi akşamı bekleme. Sağlıklı olduğun dönemde hastalık halin için hazırlık yap. Hayatta iken ölüm için hazırlık yap” buyurmuşlardır.”

  1. There are lot of people who will tell you that the world is what it is and we have to live our life like everyone else and not get into much trouble. But the fact is those people are no smarter than we are. So it’s upto us how we want to build our life and for that we need good health. So take advantage of the right thing at the right time and not just live your life, build it.

    • Peace be upon you bhai jan 🙂

      The world is a temporary place and a test.Remember Jannah isn’t for 1 week or 100 years, it’s for eternity and comes with unlimited pleasure. Strive now!“Other faces that day will be happy; pleased on account of the effort they had put in earlier (in the dunya)”. (88: 8-9) …The life of the world is nothing but a game and a diversion. The abode of the hereafter—that is truly Life if they only knew. (Surat al-‘Ankabut: 64)

      Shukria , May Allah swt give you the best in this world and the next and May He make it easy for you and us all to strive for the Hereafter. ❤ 😉

    When I lived in the holy land of the Prophet, I heard the intonations to the faithful at dawn and dusk. Though I didn’t speak the language, the sound of it was soothing. And now that I can read and hear the message on your blog it brings understanding and a great peace. Thank you Semra.

    • Assalamun alaikum dear Brother Jalal ,

      There shall be no compulsion in [acceptance of] the religion. The right course has become clear from the wrong. So whoever disbelieves in Taghut and believes in Allah has grasped the most trustworthy handhold with no break in it. And Allah is Hearing and Knowing.Surat Al-Baqarah [2:256]

      For you is your religion, and for me is my religion.Surat Al-Kafirun [verse 6]

      • Salam Semra ,The true God and the Just God will never call his creation “Kafirun=Infidels”He treats all people the same and God gave us free will to make our own decisions not to be slaves for the injustice and blindness.l have read the Quran inside out and outside in.God bless you and bless your dedication and your obedience to your faith.

      • Sorat Al Zakhraf#32 the Muslims are the masters and the none believers are the servants .Sorat Al Maida”5:9 who ever says Jesus is God will go to hell.Sorat Al NIssa 3 “you can have and own what ever you possess women salves animals .Sorat Al Tawba #5″kill the infidels where ever you find them..Sorat Al Rahman-Sorat Mohammaf,Sorat Al Waqia -Sorat Al Tawer all these chpters of the KOran promises the Muslims the males only a PARADISE of enjoymment ,Virggins,rivers of wine ,milk and honey,lads as white as pearls,fruits of figs ,dates and grape.Sorat Al Maidaa 5: 43tells you the core of Islam.

  12. Wise words. “Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.” Romans 12:2

  13. I am always transformed daily by the love of God, in his love I shall always blossom, because of its energy! Hugs to you Semra, dear sister!

  14. Hi Semra. Bless the peacemakers! Thank you for liking my poem Gone The Days!. Best Wishes. The Foureyed Poet.

  15. Time is not the measure life is the time ,I love this I much rather be the stranger ,and live in the moment without thinking about anything but the next moment to see

  16. Death is a reality that none of us can deny. Every human living on this planet no matter a poor man or a King have to die one day. billions of humans came before us and all of them died. Even we will die One Day. After death a new life will began. If we will do good deeds in this life then we will be in peace hereafter and if we will do bad deeds here then we will be in trouble after death.

    So We should really be preparing for the death because it has to come no matter what. for some it will come soon and for some it will came later. but it will come for sure.
