Muhasabah…What does it really mean?


Muhasabah means to take your self into account.

There is a need for us to look at our lives in retrospection. This is easy when we have a self inventory of our days.

What did we do?

What debts do we owe?

How do we pay them back?

What did we learn?

What could we have done differently?
We need to look objectively at our selves be our own judge and jury.
To Allah belongs whatever is in the heavens and whatever is in the earth. Whether you show what is within yourselves or conceal it, Allah will bring you to account for it. Then He will forgive whom He wills and punish whom He wills, and Allah is over all things competent. [2:284]

Umar (R.A) said, โ€œTake account of yourself before you are brought for account on the Day of Judgement and weigh out your deeds before they are weighed out for youโ€.

We do not have to be too critical or harsh on ourselves. We need to encourage ourselves by first identifying our lapses today so we can work at being better tomorrow.
