The Soul and Its Nourishment

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

In present times, actually the soul is not getting this food, thus it is in a very dismal state. It is absolutely wounded and is craving for its food. Akin to a bird inside a cage that does not get its food, so would not it then shriek and yen in agitation? If you take that very bird with its cage in a lovely room or in a beautiful garden or an elite club, would its hunger go away? Only food is what it needs. And when food is provided, then keep it anywhere; even a little cottage will be excessively good for it. The soul inside our bodies, which is restless in fury, is analogous to this bird. Today this bird is not getting that food: what rich, what poor. Who said exquisite houses, luxurious cars, lavish parties are food for the soul. Its provision is something else altogether. Remember Allah abundantly! Then witness how you discover peace.
