As soon as you realize what the purpose of your life is, you do not want to die until and unless you fulfill your purpose. You want to live life. You want to experience all the goodness Allah SWT has placed in tiny packages, pick them all and share them with the world. You want to discover the beauty within the harsh realities and feel contentment in being pleased with Qadr. You want to be excited, happy and enthusiastic in every moment of your life in your thankfulness.
Most importantly, you don’t want to die and be forced to face Allah SWT with an empty record.
You want to face Him, having contributed, having everything you owned be a contribution to achieve His Pleasure. In fact, you want to face Him, having been a contribution yourself. What could be better?
You want to develop this vacuum…this tunnel where no distraction of illness, no physical need, and no emotional set-back hinders you from what you want to achieve.
I never felt this way before in my entire life. Yes, I want to live a full, Eeman-wise healthy and content life to raise the flag of Tawheed in everybody’s hearts or minds which are filled with the darkness of slavery to other than Allah SWT. To help people remember Allah SWT and find relief in it inshaa’Allah.
With all the struggles in life, a Muslim never quits, never stoops low, never ever has bad expectations of Allah SWT. Regardless of what happens and what is destined for us, we must seek means to worship Him within those circumstances. If one loses the limbs, then by tongue and heart. If he loses limbs and the ability to speak, then at least by every beat of one’s heart. May Allah SWT protect us from such challenges (ameen) but it doesn’t take long for us to recognize that the possibilities of achieving His Pleasure are unlimited …because His Mercy is Vast.
And I (Allâh) created not the jinns and humans except they should worship Me (Alone).
[Surat adh-Dhaariyat, 51:56]
The universe is created to facilitate us in serving Him. He SWT chose us for Him!
Alhamdolilah for being a human!
Alhamdolilah for such a noble purpose!
Alhamdolilah for so many exciting ways to fulfill that very purpose!
