I hope you don’t greet me with derision,
I just want to clear up some confusion.
This world is not immaculate, its only an Illusion.
let me speak my words, nothing on here is allusion.
I believe that once you start loving this world,
is the time you start losing.
You perceive something to be true and others could believe the very same thing as you. However, life is a perception. When nothing is permanent, how could this world even be true? With your happiness you may see the world in glory, the beauty of God’s creation. In sadness you may see the world for its shallowness, its emptiness.. you see God’s creation being destructed. What I’m talking about here is not only the world as in nature and skyscrapers and all of those worldly things. What I’m also talking about is Humans. We are the world. I believe we were made with intelligence because this World is for us. Other species are extras in our movie, but we are the primary and we know we are. We live in arrogance because this is our world. However, death falls upon everyone and everything in this world. Our minds forget it, our minds deny it.. but our souls are forever in remembrance. Our souls wait for the next life, knowing something better awaits us but our minds distract us. This life is just a perception.
But you prefer the worldly life, while the Hereafter is better and more enduring- (Quran 87:16-17)
Loving something that is not permanent is a dangerous game, but our hearts always long for something to Love. However Love, just as life, should have a greater meaning. You could Love someone for their appearance, but that meaning will fade. You could Love them for their personality, character, drive.. but in the end they won’t always be there for you. I know that sounds depressing and negative, but its the truth. We live in an impermanent world. So this is why finding the right meaning for Love is more important than Love itself and, I believe, Loving something for the sake of God is the best Love you could have. Then the Love between two becomes permanent. Both striving to live in the sanctity of God’s Heaven and, therefore, both striving for Eternal Love.
Oh external Worshipper, know that worship without heart is motions. Oh seeker of knowledge, know that knowledge without purification is a dangerous weapon of the ego. Oh activist, know that work without orientation of heart is fruitless. Oh lover, know that Love without God is pain – Yasmin Mogahed
