The world is a wonder. Both the words start from ‘w’ , but that doesn’t mean anything. Who cares about the world being a wonderful place right? It can never be a wonderful place infact because of the people it is being inhabited with. I won’t say all the people are bad because there are some good souls who keep it going by making some great measures like sacrifice and don’t really manipulate things when it comes to their loss. Most of them however criticise without any objective means and create an oddity around. This oddity around can make a form of chaos in a human mind and can cause destruction of the gigglings and the giddiness. And when the human refuses to smile there are much other things he starts to worry about and he leaves everything. This hopelessness can lead one to depravity because one even starts to degrade the blessings of his Lord. It’s actually not the fault of the person himself but the unnecessary criticism of him, on his thoughts, on his values. The absurd connotations are a part of but many of our lives.
I realized this during the last month.
It’s small anecdote but i think it taught me a lot about the people who actually don’t care about the path that they have chosen and who are the blind followers of something that is either not true or not at all befitting….
I’ve known this girl for quite a long time now, we are good friends . One day we were having this discussion about the sects and we just randomly talked about our values and there comes a point when there was a slight clash in the matters of faith. Then i asked her to show me a proof which she didn’t have. So, i showed her mine. At the end of the lame discussion, The answer i got was: “We should not discuss in the matters of faith. ” After i get to insist talking to her a little bit more, she got vexed and said, “We’ll see it on the day of judgement” . I stopped talking after that.
Later on i was thinking,
Really? On the day of our accountability?? On the best day ever. Where we can meet our Prophet and can Meet our Lord (Insha Allah). Will it really be worth of us being wrong on THAT very day? When we had given a life of 40, 50 or 60 years. Will we be able to say that we were waiting for this day to happen…?
IN Quran Allah says,
He questions: “When is the Day of Resurrection?” At length, when the sight is dazed and the moon is buried in darkness, and the sun and moon are joined together that Day will Man say; “Where is the refuge?”
We know we all want the refuge of Allah.
Then why such instability in our characters, when it comes to knowing about our religion, when it comes to knowing about our own heritage. Don’t we want a happy ever after? I don’t really think so.
All we want is to go on and on about arguing and negotiating on the hadith that are quite clearly open in front of us. The reason is we don’t want to accept the change. We are still narrow minded, though we say we have reached the heights of brilliance in this world. I think we have left our religion behind by being brilliant in the eyes of the people. We still have a hollow space in our hearts and we do not use our logic or reasoning power when it comes to our religion at least, I Tell you what, we don’t even try patiently.
Allah says in the Holy Quran:
Why won’t you think?
Truly, the worst of all creatures in the sight of Allah are the deaf,
the dumb, those who do not use their reason.
And they (those in hell) will say, “If only we had listened or reasoned, we would not be among the companions of the Blaze.”
We need to start reasoning as we think and think about our projects up until we find the best idea our mind can muster. Why not do the same with our life forever?! Maybe we are missing with some knowledge that even our parents missed because their parents did not look more deeply enough and so never did they. Maybe we’ll be among the ones who do wrong unknowingly and doesn’t even acknowledge like the deaf and the dumb. Maybe we are the blind followers like ‘them’ mentioned in Quran,
And when they committing evil, they say, “We found our fathers doing it, and Allah has ordered us to do it.” Say, “Indeed, Allah does not order immorality. Do you say about Allah that which you do not know?”
I’ll conclude with a dua,
“ May Allah helps us all to be in the right path and give us the true strength which is a requisite for our way to Jannah and through which we’ll not be ashamed. May Allah provide us with the inner strength and more thought for akhirah as we have for this world, which is not even much mandatory to accomplish. May Allah forgives us for all that is passed and gives us the true guidance/righteousness and the companionship of the truthful and the sacrificial” .
Stay Grateful and blessed. 🙂 🙂 🙂
