“So flee to Allah.”

Salamualaykum,

When Allah ta’ala speaks of the Dunya He says:

فَامْشُوا فِي مَنَاكِبِهَا
“so walk among its slopes” (67:15)

When He mentions His Dhikr He says:

فَاسْعَوْا إِلَىٰ ذِكْرِ اللَّهِ
Hasten earnestly to the remembrance of Allah” (62:9)

When He speaks about Jannah He says:

سَابِقُوا
Race toward” and

سَارِعُوا
“Be quick /march forth”

And when He speaks of Himself – Al-A’laa (the Most High) He says:

فَفِرُّوا إِلَى اللَّهِ
“So flee to Allah.”

إِنَّ فِي ذَٰلِكَ لَذِكْرَىٰ لِمَن كَانَ لَهُ قَلْبٌ أَوْ أَلْقَى السَّمْعَ وَهُوَ شَهِيدٌ
Indeed in that is a reminder for whoever has a heart or who listens while he is present [in mind].

-Fi Amanillah-
