15:2 (Al-Hijr - The Rocky Tract)

How much will those who disbelieved desire that they were muslims
[ .. - this will be on the Day of Resurrection when they will see the disbelievers going to Hell and the Muslims going to Paradise]
At the time of Rasulullah, there was a Jew boy who love to be with Rasulullah and help him SAW with daily chores. One day, this boy became very sick and Rasulullah (pbuh) visited him. At the boy's death bed, Rasulullah invited him to Islam. The boy, who was a very good and obedient son, asked the permission of his father to become muslim. His father allowed him to follow Rasulullah. Finally, the boy said shahadah and died as a muslim.
Dear friends, why would you think Rasulullah wanted this boy to become Muslim? The boy was about to die and would not live longer to be with Rasulullah and to worship Allah. The answer is no other than to die as a Muslim who testifies the oneness of Allah Ta'ala and the prophethood of Rasulullah: the biggest event ever in one's life!
Today, we all should be extremely happy that we are Muslims. Just imagine, the moment after we have just finished the last paper in the final: we were very relieved and for a second or two, forgot all the tiredness due to our sleepless nights during the final week. However, this relief is not even a comparison to our joys of being muslims! If we look back at the verse above, you can imagine how thankful, proud and happy the Muslims will be on the day of judgement to enter the Jannah of Allah with HIS forgiveness, while the disbelievers are in vain and regrets.

>> to be continued insha Allah
