Everyone aware of this truth understands that everything in creation belongs to Allah and seeks to comprehend the wisdom in our Lord’s sublime creation.
They realize that the life of this world, with the images shown to them, is a test, and that their real lives will take place in the Hereafter.
They see the illogicality of greedily and hungrily trying to gain a world that is made up of illusion. They seek to gain the aproval of our Lord instead, Who is actually the real Lord of presence and eternity. They turn their love and devotion toward our Almighty Lord, the one true lord of all, whose being enfolds all things.
By comprehending this reality, instead of harboring a passionate desire for the worthless things of the transient life of this world and worrying, resorting to oppression, cruelty and ruthlessness in the hope of furthering their own interests,they aim to win the eternal life of Paradise with its endless blessings, bestowed whenever he wantswith showing proper moral values.
They hope for the original and best of everything in the Hereafter and do all in their power to avoid regret in that eternal life. The more they properly appreciate the might of our Lord, the more they realize that Allah creates endless torment in Hell as he creates endless blessings in Paradise. .
People who know that Allah pervades everything and everywhere behave toward Allah in an honest manner at every moment of their lives. They never forget they may die at any moment, that the life of this world will come to an end, and that they will confront their true lives in the Hereafter. Knowing this and behaving accordingly is a great gain that will bring with it infinite delights and blessings.
“The life of this world is nothing but a game and a diversion. The Hereafter is better for those who fear [and respect] Allah. So will you not use your intellect?” (Surat al-An’am, 32)2009-02-25 03:42:37
