We close our eyes to the truth, the reality. Somewhere deep down in us we know, we know we are erroneous. But we try to become flawless and perfect.
Sadly, we are constructing our inner soul to adjust ourselves in this constantly evolving world. We try to be in-line with all the latest trends of this decisive world. For most of us, the only concern is to equate ourselves among the wealthiest, famed and the charmers.
We’ve forgotten our only purpose for which we were descended down from the skies to the soil. It seems like at every step, this purpose is fading away from our soul. Our purpose as beings is to worship Allah swt at every breath, at every step. But this doesn’t seem to be the case now.
The purpose of our existence is becoming a history and a mystery in some cases. The main reason for our existence is eroding.
Who to blame for this erosion? Media? Glamour? Status? Wealth? And the list continues…
Well, not really. It’s ‘us’ who are to blamed for the fuss. We are driven by the endless evolutions, which are taking place in this contemporary world. And we KNOW that we are getting driven by such factors but still shut our eyes and keep welcoming the lies from our hearts. It’s a strange human psyche.
The evil is within us. It’s on a voyage to seal our hearts to realize the purpose of our being. In fact, we do know that we’re on the wrong track but still unwilling to admit it. Nobody can stop this evil from spreading across our soul. But the only thing that can possibly make this happen is ‘you’. Yes. It’s you who can fight off this evil and purify your soul.
This fight is not a normal one. It requires an immense patience and content. For that, you need to draw a broad line between right and wrong. You need to be yourself. What this mean is that, you were sent down alone and will be taken back alone. Thence, living in this world implies that you need to be ‘alone’. That is, your identity as a being should be individualistic and entirely unique. Transforming yourself to fit in the paradigms of this decisive world will take you nowhere but will result in making you into a person who you should not be. Unfortunately, this snatches your attention away from your sole purpose of existence.
Allah knows the evil lies within us. Hence, we should strive to transform and beautify our souls for Allah swt rather than for the people of this decisive world.
Surah At-Taghabun, verse 4
“He knows what is within the heavens and earth and knows what you conceal and what you declare. And Allah is Knowing of that within the breasts.”
