Such a mysterious one is this journey life. You begin this journey with a wail, and it ends, perhaps leaving others to wail( at least for the sake of humanity). In an endeavor to make this journey a worthwhile one, we tend to sometimes forget that this is but a temporary life. The real ride awaits us on the day of judgement. Packing, unpacking, hoarding, fretting, anxieties, uncertainties, jealousies, envies, feuds, and what not mar this beautiful journey of life. All these feelings, despite the fact that we very well know, we are not in charge of planning this journey— it is all pre-planned by the creator.
Lets spare a moment and delve into our conscience, to mend our narrow minds, thoughts and deeds and make this journey a significant one, before we return to the creator, as the holy Quran rightly says— “Truly to Allah we belong, and truly to him shall we return”.— (Quran 2:156)
The process of rectifying, repairing and improving the soul is one arduous task. That process is going to involve the entire span of human existence. But we are obliged to do that, for the one who gave us a chance to live. We are obliged to heal our souls for the sake of the Almighty.
“The woods are lovely, dark and deep,
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep”.
— Robert Frost
O yes! The journey of life is awesome.But better resolve matters of this duniya(world) in an appropriate way. And await the real fairy tale life in jannah Inshallah, after the end of this transitory journey.
