Life Quest

Did you ever think: what is it that we want, and if we get we will be completely satisfied, feel happy ever after, and
  stop wanting more…
I guess…..nothing, I bet you can name lots of things you want, but you cannot say that’s it, and I will stop wanting more and I will have no more desires.Did you ever ask yourself why the rich is missing health, the poor is missing money, the happy in love ones miss peace of mind, the sick miss health, the old miss being yo
 ung, he younger’s want o get older, the single ones want to get married, and the married ones wish to be single again…..

Don’t you feel that there is something that we all miss and we just foul ourselves by wishing for different versions of an illusion that we think holds the ultimate happiness. Even if you consider people’s constant search for joy and happiness in everything, you will see no matter how much they get out of it they still end up with dissatisfaction and the greed for more.
So, what is it that we are all looking for and never find, if you analyze all the human desires you will end up to know that there is no one that can say for sure he feels satisfied and needs no more, there is always at best: I’m happy but if I could…., or if I had…., or If I was……..There is always a missing part……..No one knows the right answer…because a needy cannot lead the way to happiness, he will always be hindered by his own needs.
The missing part is the ultimate truth of happiness; we need to know the right answer to this question:
What is the truth of happiness?
The truth that reveals, the fact behind all our deepest needs and desires; and satisfies them in the most adequate way.
The One who has the answer to this question should be Superior to all the neediest, and their needs, He should be the Ultimate power that controls all the desires and creates them….
Don’t you think that the One that reflects His beauty in everything He creates is our real answer to our life’s quest?We are all looking for the Ultimate uncontaminated truth that holds nothing beyond it.
And most truly He says in His holy book of the Quran: Verse 22 ayah 5, and 6:
O people, if you are in doubt about the resurrection, remember that we first created you from dust, then, from a sperm drop, then from a clot, and then from a bitesize tissue formed and unformed, so that we might clarify for you. We establish in the wombs whatever we will for an appointed term, and then we bring you forth as infants, then you come of age. Some of you die, and some of you are kept back to the vilest state of life, after knowing somewhat, they know nothing. and you see the earth dry; but no sooner do we send down rain upon it than it begins to quiver and swell, putting forth every fine variety (of herbage). (5)
That is because Allah is the truth; he revives the dead and has power over all things. (6)
And the hour is sure to come there is no doubt. And Allah will raise up those in the graves. (7)
Some dispute about Allah, though they have neither knowledge nor guidance, nor an illuminating book. (8)

There is for him who turns his side to lead (others) astray from the path of Allah, degradation in this life and we shall let him taste the punishment of the burning on the day of resurrection. (9)

‘This is the reward for what your hands have forwarded. Allah is not unjust to the worshipers. ‘ (10)

There are among the people such who worship Allah and (yet stand) on the very edge. When goodness comes to him, he is content, but if a trial befalls him he falls upon his face, he loses this world and the everlasting life; that is indeed a clear loss. (11)

He calls to other than Allah, to that which neither hurts him, nor benefits him; that is indeed far error. (12)

He calls upon him whose harm is nearer than his benefit, an evil guide and an evil friend. (13)

As for those who believe and do good works Allah will admit them to gardens underneath which rivers flow. Allah indeed does what he will. (14)

If anyone thinks that Allah will not give him (prophet Muhammad) victory in this present world and in the everlasting life, let him stretch a rope to heaven, and let him sever it. Then, let him see if his guile does away with that which has enraged him. (15)

As such we have sent it in clear verses. Indeed, Allah gives guidance to whom he will. (16)
And the hour is sure to come there is no doubt. And Allah will raise up those in the graves. (7)

Life Journey

It’s funny how life still has so many surprises for us……

When you take it for granted, it just turns everything upside down,

To tell you don’t get used to it, it will never stay the same…

To my surprise life had so many hidden things for me again….

And I keep wondering, would I ever settle down…

I was on the top, with full command over my life……..

And the storm of the credit crises came to shake everything upside down….

Like an earth quick,

It ruined everything, it was sudden, and it was unexpected…..

When I wake up from the shock, all I could see was the ruins everywhere….

Could not say anything….

Wherever I looked I just saw dead ends…

But kept in mind that I was gifted to be safe, me with all the members of my family….

And, day by day I saw a new self in me…

A new self emerged out from the ruins…

It looks like me, but it’s not me…

It’s a much stronger self…

A self that kept telling me, EVERYTHING HAPPENS FOR A REASON…

The broken parts of my life and soul were lying just in front of my eyes…

I could not even collect them and attach them together…

I just left everything to God…

I was stuck in a corner that had no way out…

While still watching what happens…

While still amazed and shocked…

Isaw the broken parts fitting together in the most strangest way, a way I never thought possible…

 A new image of my life was now in front of me, a one that I never expected…..

A new image of me…my soul…and myself……

God

When I was in India..
I saw lots of different god’s being worshiped there, from cows to stones and idols..

In Europe…
I saw people believe God has a son, and a true Christian has to talk to the father in church about his sins to be forgiven. ..

In other countries….
I saw people deny the existence of God…..

As a Muslim…
I believe that God is so close to us even closer than our jugular veins, as it’s mentioned in the QURAN, Verse 50, and ayah 16:
“Indeed, we created the human. We know the whisperings of his soul, and are closer to him than the jugular vein.” (16)

It was not a philosophical comparison….

Just a thought that crossed my mind and wanted to share…

Since lots of people must got stuck sometime, somewhere, in a life corner…

Where one feels no one can help…

And you don’t have access to your idols or the temple to pray to your gods or awaken them by ringing the bills…..

The father of your church is far from you…he cannot hear your confessions… he cannot tell you: son your sins are forgiven and you will be saved….

And,

Life is precious you don’t want to lose it….

You need someone who has the ultimate power to help…

You feel something inside you tells you there is someone that can hear your cries and whispers from where you are….

You are so hopeless………

From whatever region you are….

No matter what language you speak…..

Or from which race or societal ranking you are….

If you believe in God as He says “Indeed, we created the human. We know the whisperings of his soul, and are closer to him than the jugular vein.”

You will start talking to Him in your own language…

In your own humble words…

No matter where you are…

You will ask him for help…

You feel the inner peace when you know, He is always there for you…

He knows the whisperings of your soul…..

And He is so close to you that you can whisper your hearty thoughts to…..

You don’t have to reveal your sins in front of other human beings….

You don’t have to keep an idol with you wherever you go…

It was just a simple thought……….
Is it better to have a God that knows…
All the whisperings of the soul…
All the languages of the world…
And considers all human beings as equal in front of Him no matter from what race or region they are….
OR
To believe in idol gods that you have to watch over and carry around……
OR
To believe that revealing the sins you made to the clergy would only purify you….
What if you made sins and got stuck somewhere, you have no access to the clergy…..
And you are in the middle of nowhere….
Don’t you think it’s much easier to believe in a God that says:

“Indeed, we created the human. We know the whisperings of his soul, and are closer to him than the jugular vein.” (16) Verse (50)

Humanity

When a woman gives birth to a child, it’s like part of her soul has shifted into a new being’s body, a being that she has to watch closely from now on and all her life…
When that part of her soul shifts all her
 hopes and dreams, her world… is not as small as it used to be…all the departed parts of her soul now keep her alert all the time…her dreams grow bigger and wider as the horizon circling her kids grow larger…

When you are one, your dreams, hopes and worries are all kept in your mind and soul….but when you have kids..part of that privacy is revealed…you become vulnerable…your soul spreads its wings around…you start worrying about their food, their life, their hopes, their dreams, their disappointments…etc.
And then you start worrying about the environment that governs your kids, the community, the institutes, the people they meet and they know…
Then your hopes, dreams and worries find new horizons…because you start thinking about not only your kids but other people’s kids, the community, Humanity and the universe..
That’s when you realize God’s wisdom in cultivating this love into parents hearts…the small funny creature called baby…will force you someday to care about not only him but the community, the world, the universe and the whole human race.

My Faith

Was really hard to be where I am…had lots of challenges to face…One thing was always repeated in the same way…I was always hardly trying to get something or reach somewhere…and constantly was disappointed….

I learned the lesson, not always what we choose is the right choice for us…there are always better options..if we have faith in God and leave the matter in His hand…IT’S NOT EASY, I KNOW…but its always the best solution…

I know for sure now that if you trust God, and have patience…all those things that you hoped for…all those people that left you alone…and all those apportunities you lost…will turn back to you in the most glorious way.
The only problem is that when your disappointed and you feel you reached a dead end, it’s not easy to leave the matter in God’s had and feel fine…you are still worried …and when your completely hopeless…have noone to turn to…you start to pray and hope again that God would solve it somehow…
Then someday unexpectedly, one call…one email…or a knock on the door…will bring you far more better things that you hoped for.
