Answer

Wa’alaykum as Salam wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu,

Yes, be starting now, you will still get the reward of being in the Shade of the ‘Arsh. Also practice on these three qualities which are mentioned in the same narration:

  1. Remain attached to the Masjid. Spend as much time as possible in the Masjid.
  2. Love for the pleasure of Allah. Meet people solely for Allah, for no material gain and ulterior motive.
  3. Give charity discreetly in a way that no one knows that you donated.

Insha Allah, if you practice on these qualities with firm conviction and hope, you will definitely be under the shade of Allah.

 

And Allaah Ta’aala knows best

Wassalaam,
