I just don’t understand.
How can you not believe?
Is there not a morsel, not a single part of your brain
that understands, that reflects that maybe there is more to life…
that maybe your existence is not just eating
or sleeping or school or marriage or drugs or alcohol
Do you never reflect that maybe you didn’t just land here?
And even in the things you are engaged in, do you never reflect?
Like in the food that you eat, the water that you drink?
Is there an on/off button that someone flips to bring the rain?
Is there a germinate/stop button that someone flips to make the plants grow?
Are you the controller of this? Are you the one who brings life and who brings death?
Are you the one that makes the heart beat and the nerves signal?
“Indeed, in the creation of the heavens and the earth and the alternation of the night and the day are SIGNS for those of understanding.” [3:190]
Take a look around you, look up at the sky, look at your own fingertips.
“Does man think that We will not assemble his bones? Yes. [We are] Able [even] to proportion his fingertips.” [75:3-4]
Look at the way everything is perfectly in order. Look at the way everything works and functions. Look at the way the signs are present to you. Are you the creator?
Today we live in a society that is all about the ‘now’ but we fail to think about what our actual purpose is. Three questions that should pre-occupy man’s mind are…
1. Where did you come from?
2. What are you doing here?
3. Where are you destined for?
And the answers lie in the Qur’an, the original word of God, unchanged since it’s been revealed. Man believes He is awake, but when he dies, that’s when man realizes that he has lived a life of delusion.
The moment you die is the moment you become fully awake.Don’t wait until its over to reflect.
Do it now, think about it. Just look around you, Allah’s (God’s) signs are everywhere.
“So have they not traveled through the earth and have hearts by which to reason and ears by which to hear? For indeed, it is not eyes that are blinded, but blinded are the hearts which are within the breasts.” [22:46]
