The curator of dreams , the creator of aims, the friend of the patient, the one to whom we ask for forgiveness, the one whose name forever remains, the one who loves us even if we go astray, the one who loves us more than our mother. The one who created us to check who does good work here and to whom we will all go back. Allaah the merciful , the Almighty. The God of eternal light and wisdom. The one who sent the Quran and Nabi Muhammad ( pbuh ), and Jesus (pbuh ) and Moses and Abraham so that we can mend ourselves and know the purpose of our being. To follow roads that lead to light and forever bliss. Everyday when the sun rises in the east, the birds fly to the north , the birds fly to the south, some fly towards the sun while others fly away to the west. Allaah says in the Quran there are signs for people who seek guidance. Guidance is to follow a road that leads to happiness and contentment , a choice we have to make so that we can find purpose , a way that won’t make us sad as the ordeal of life is sad. We are born but we also have to die. Death itself is not sadness, it is the idea of leaving behind so much. Words left unsaid, debts unpaid, I could have , I would have , I should have. The happier part of this ordeal is on the contrary is a bright light at the end of the tunnel. Quran elaborates to not take the world too seriously instead take yourself seriously. We are perfect beings in an imperfect world. Kal Malik , an amateur Sufi puts it.
Who are you?
The unique you?
The “you” that God breathed into?
You and me are the delegates of God. While we climb corporate ladders and the world tells us to not mix up religion with the world. I would dearly suggest that keep Quran closer to you than any book you ever read. Quran and Namaz is a combination of happiness, wisdom and purpose. We will become a source of light for countless if we illuminate ourselves with the truth. We err , everyday but the strength lies in how quickly we go back. Be passionate about Islam, It’s the only way forward to enlightenment and purpose.
Your name may not appear down here in this world’s hall of fame, in fact you may be so a no-neck no one knows your name, the oscars and the praise may never come your way, but don’t forget God has rewards He will hand out some day, this crowd on earth, they will soon forget when you’re not on the top, they will cheer like mad until you fall and then their praise will stop, not God, He never does forget, and in His hall of fame by just believing in Him forever there’s your name. I tell you friend, I wouldn’t trade my name however small, it’s written there beyond the stars in that celestial hall, for all the famous names on earth, or the glory that they share, I’d rather be an unknown here and have my name up there!” Jim Caviezel
