Dear Children! In this book we have dealt with the most fundamental and important facts about our lives. We asked questions such as, "What is the purpose of our lives?," " How does our Lord, Who created us and everything surrounding us, want us to conduct ourselves?," " What are our responsibilities towards our Creator?," "What is the life of the Hereafter?," "Why should we fear being sent to the Fire?," etc.
We hope you think about these questions very carefully. Right now, you are very young, but never forget that one day you will also be an old man or woman.
There may be people around you who will tell you that you are too young to think about death. But you must keep in mind that no one knows when death will come upon him or her. You may encounter death in a day or in ten years' time. When you think about all these things, you will immediately realise how senseless it is to waste time.
Never forget that you can always make up an excuse for everything.
You can even convince other people. But in the life in the hereafter which is due to begin upon death, you will not be able to make any excuses for your faults and wrongdoings in the presence of Allah, Who knows and sees everything.
For this reason, you must think about these facts without losing time and begin striving to become a person who is loved by Allah.
