I have seen such people…
They fulfilled each of their wish – like every random wish, basically without thinking about right or wrong, they went with the “flow” and listened to their hearts/nafs (in this case).
Today! They are questioning their lives, their life has lost all the meaning, charm and excitement because they fulfilled their desires in haram ways.
All that can be seen in their eyes is a dead person, they dress up, hangout yet there is a constant vacuum inside them (literally).
But why does it matter? Why am I bringing this up? ▪
People nowadays think (infact believe) that Islam forbids everything, everything is haram in Islam and that they can hardly do anything if they follow Islam.
Well my dear brothers and sisters, It is not Islam that forbids everything, it is our society that has adopted everything which is Haram in the eyes of ALLAH, which ALLAH forbids only because it is harmful for no one but us (but we don’t realize).
Weren’t there any hobbies in the early times? Didn’t people joke or have fun? Haven’t you heard about how ALLAH’s Prophet (SAW) used to joke and play with his wives and companions.
But today the vulgarity is so common that it seems quite abnormal being decent.
An awake person knows its simply not worth disobeying ALLAH Subhanawa ta’alah, no matter what! ☝
After all, this Dunya is as much as one grain of sand while the rest of the desert is the Akhirah (do correct me if I am wrong here).
How foolish it is to follow your heart and end up being a hopeless person in this life as well as in the hereafter and face that shame in ourselves and the anger of ALLAH on the day of judgement..(Allah ho Akbar 😭) ▪
Jim Carrey says: “I wish everyone was wealthy and popular, so they would know that this is not the answer.” Then, what is the answer?
We need to feed two things; our body (temporarily) and our soul (which will last forever), but we forget the later one.
Feed your souls; with Zikr of Allah and Ibadah because it is the most funadamental purpose of our creation.
