No Support in Life

Akhlaq & Spirituality, Striding in Allah’s Shade - Enriching Lives / Thursday, November 6th, 2008

But the anguish of it all: proportional to as many ways our beloved Prophet sallallahu alayhe wa sallam enlightened us with to attain nearness of our Allah, as much we are distant from Him today (if not even more). The whole world dwells in our heart; if anything does not then that is Allah. Everybody we are concerned about and the one whom not concerned for – that again – Allah. The harms of this if were for the Hereafter alone then that too was excessively enormous to bear, but simultaneously this world that we are so concerned for also gets ruined.

As being mindless of Allah directly implies having no firm support and sustenance in life. Those who dive into the horrendous realms of suicide do so because of being unable to find any support in life. However, the hopelessness of an infidel is understandable but that of a Momin…how to transmit that to the intellect? For a believer has Allah with him, so how can he be poor-spirited.

Yet again: remember Allah abundantly. Take out some time in solitude.  Also keep entreating from Allah as much as one can. Then, by His grace, our gaudiness in prayers will be changed into genuine worship; finding its missing soul. Then the eyes will have guards of Allah’s remembrance, the ears will have guards too, the tongue, the hands, each part of the body will have screens fortifying them. Nothing else can restrain a man from sins. For how much will the law fret in securing its spheres of influence? How long can last the pursuit of a man guarding a man?
