I was just pondering on my thoughts, as someone before Steve Jobs also said – Connect the dots.
After all of the lives suffering, pain, isolation, rejection, destruction, happiness, joy, love, and understanding – Finally in the end, there is Death. Now when we have seen and believed that Death never leaves anyone, and it does not make any sense that we start hating death, even death works on the command of GOD. The angel of death never comes on his own wish, He obeys the command of GOD. Why are we afraid of death? How does it looks like? Did anyone saw death? Is death really scary and horrifying? Then how can we blame death without knowing about it’s actual state.
I can die at this very moment, maybe before I finish this whole blog. Who knows what’s coming up next? But this does not mean I must wait for death to come and take me. What I can do is ask GOD to make it easy for me, and provide me comfort after I die.
GOD had already done with the creation and it’s ending. He knows all that happened and everything that is going to happen till everyone own there eternal place in hell or heaven after the day of Judgement. This is very simple – You get what you do. I REPEAT – You get what you do. If you kill someone there is a superior Judge of the Judges, who will judge us. It’s like we write our own book of life, the good – Spreading love, understanding, peace, knowledge, gratefulness , good deeds, praising GOD by seeing his creation, reflecting within ourselves and learning more of what GOD have sown into our nature. And then the bad one – lying, Injustice, corruption, hate, jealousy, envy, ignorance, ungratefulness, etc. This is our own book, what we write we get after death. And then we blame and judge GOD for being unjust. Indeed we humans are ungrateful and unjust. GOD is the truth, all-forgiving, ever-living, infinity, our mind will get exhausted but the praise of GOD will never extinguish.
I could have been born in the era of prophet Adam the first man, I could have been that first man, I could have been his wife Hawwa (May Allah peace be upon them both), I could have been from the tribe of his son Kabil (The murderer), or from the tribe of prophet Adam’s son Habil (The righteous). or I could haven been born at the time of Prophet Noah, and accepted his message or I could have been in those losers who were caught into the world’s greatest flood and died.
I could have been the Pharaoh who killed million of people at his time, or I could have been in the group of people who believed in Prophet Moses. I could have been the mother of Prophet Moses who prayed for her son’s safety, or I could have been the sister of Moses who followed her brother secretly through the river bank who was kept in basket, and floated upon the water, until he reached in the hand of Pharaoh’s wife, I could have been the Pharaoh’s wife who took responsibility of the upbringing of Prophet Moses. I could have been in the believing people at the time of Prophet Seth, or maybe who rejected his message. I could have been in the Magicians group who after seeing the sign giving to Moses, when his stick turned into a powerful snake and swallowed the magicians stick, believed in the Lord of Moses and Aaron (May Allah peace be upon them both), and prostrated. Or I could have been in the army of Pharaoh who was drown into the River Nile along with his army.
I could have been the disciple of Prophet Jesus, who believed in his message or in those who heard the message of truth and Rejected. I could have been at the time of Mother Mary, and saw with my own eyes when Jesus spoke from the cradle and said, Indeed I am sent from GOD, and I confirm the Torah, and God has given me wisdom. Peace on the day when I was born, when I will die, and when I will return again.
I could have been born in the time of the last and final Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him) and would have accompanied him in his mission, or I could have been the one who humiliated him (This is a blessing of Allah that he selected me to be born as a Muslim in a Muslim family, May Allah/GOD protect my whole generation till the day of Judgement from Disbelief and associating partners with GOD). Or I could have been the Jew Rabbi who looked at Prophet Muhammad and said, Indeed the promise of GOD is true, You are the one who is been praised in the Torah(Old Testament), and Injeel (Gospel), and we Jews recognize you as we recognize our own sons, and I bear witness there is no gods BUT Allah(The Only One GOD), and I bear witness YOU (Prophet Muhammad) is the messenger of Allah/God.
Or I could have been the disbeliever, who after listening to the message of Truth(The Noble Quran) turned away and disbelieved, and the curse of GOD took over me, Woe upon me for what I did when I was Alive – This would have been my calling from my grave (May Allah/GOD protect my whole generation till the day of Judgement from Disbelief and associating partners with GOD). I could have been the martyr who sacrificed himself for the sake of Allah, or I could have been in the group of disbeliever who fought against the messenger who bought the truth.
I could have been an animal, plant, tree, fruit, vegetable, bird, cloud, mountain, water, ocean, fish, mud, hair, nails, eyes, fingers, lungs, heart, brain, rain, etc
Or I could have been the Universe, Earth, Moon, Sun, Stars, Planets, Blackhole, Atoms, time, etc
If ALLAH/GOD wanted he could have created me AT ANY TIME into any form, any shape, any size, any height, any weight, with or without physical disability.
Or ALLAH/GOD had wished he could have made me an orphan, lost, depressed, helpless, and without any support, without family, without siblings, without a good ancestral linage, without good environment & surrounding, BUT he blessed me with this beautiful moment of time, with stronger and clear inner-voice, with the best parents, siblings, grandparents, education, religious knowledge, and courage where I am able to connect to the world, without Just one click.
By now you would have read this blog post, and I am still Alive or maybe the moment I click “PUBLISH” button, I may breathe my last breath. What I am trying to say in this whole post is “FIND YOUR PURPOSE – YOU WERE BORN IN THIS ERA, CENTURY, COUNTRY, CITY, HOME, FOR A REASON” – Your every single experience matter, all the suffering, pain, joy, happiness is there for a reason.
I was born on 15 Oct 1998 at night, because that was the time GOD selected for me to come in this world, and serve my purpose. Though he created my Spirit/soul and everyone’s soul/spirit before the creation of Universe. But this point of time was selected for me, to come into this world and create a positive impact into the lives of people around me, and to make people aware & conscious about their purpose and what exactly are they pursuing in this Life.
Before I end up – I would leave you with this thought.. Everything humans created was for a reason, It has a guideline on “How this thing/device” works. If the manual is not followed and the guidelines are ignored, you might end up destroying that thing/device. So, we are created for a purpose, a purpose bigger than ourselves, BUT are you following the guidelines? or merely following your materialistic desire?
Death is standing in-front of you, Are you prepared? Is your book good enough to be read by yourself on the Day of Judgement? Do you have peace in your life?..
