Life in Eternity
Time, ticking slowly on the wall is an illusion
For those who have awaken to the realisation
That eternity has already begun...
And thus they are already living a life in eternity,
So what ails thee that
they may wear this garb or that garb?
You! Here?! I think we best overcome the test of this life when we know that each and every single person that we meet, we shall meet in the afterlife. Imagine that! Having to spend an eternity with the neighbour you hate, or the mother-in-law you dislike, or the love rival you detest. Thus, it would be good to keep our report book clean and unblemished, no secret hatred, no malice, no condemnation on another fellow human being. It is hard... but we must try, yes?
Alhamdulillah! And it is also good to remember that we shall also be reunited with our dearly departed - our mothers and fathers who cared for us. Our sisters and brother... friends, cousins, aunts and uncles. And our masters, to whom we have sworn love and devotion. We only ask that we are blessed with mercy (for we have done so many sins and forgotten ourselves), so that we are brought to the company of the saints and the saintly, and into the Divine Presence of Allah (swt) and His Beloved Muhammad (saws).
Goodnight, sunshine. Have a beautiful eternity tomorrow and everlasting...
wa min Allah at-taufiq
Hate has no place in Islam
Love will show the Way
