THIS WORLD ~OUR TEMPORARY ABODE
ALLAH TABARAKA ~WA ~TA`LA has sent us to this world for a very short while.Our life in this world is like a bubble in the water,nobody knows when it will burst and come to an end.
We are like a TRAVELLER WAITING FOR HIS TRAIN IN THE WAITING ROOM OF A STATION.If he starts arranging the furniture of the waiting room and even worse,goes out to buy some frames to hang in the waiting room,but does not buy his ticket, make his reservation,arrange his baggage,then he will have endless problems.
Exactly in the same manner this world is only a waiting room.We are all waiting for our "TRAIN OF DEATH" to come.When it comes we will have no choice but but to board it.If we did not prepare for that journey from where there is no return,and wasted our whole life;beautifying this waiting room only,(OUR WORLDLY LIFE)>AND WE MADE NO PREPERATION FOR IT.(OUR ETERNAL LIFE).Our problems will be most severe.If we did not buy our ticket of IMAAN and make our reservations of good deeds,we will suffer a number of untold miseries.The person in the waiting room knows that he has 15min,or half an hour,whereas we dont have any guarentee of of the final minute.
All of us come with return tickets to this world.Nobody has come with a single or one way ticket only.Our ticket is okayed and reconfirmed.The only thing is we dont know WHEN THAT TIME IS.On the appointed time we will have to on ou journey to the HEREAFTER.
A human is faced with million and one hazards @ each moment of his/her life.Dangers are lurking from all sides,all the time.An arabic saying is"TO BE LIVING YET IS MOST SURPRISING,TO DIE IS ONLY NATURAL".So many things can go wrong in the human body,the nervous system,the brain,etc.The roof can cave in,accidents can happen,volcanoes can errupt,floods can occur,etc.Life is most uncertain and unpredictable.....
When this life is so short,uncertain and unpredictable,HOW CAN WE DEPEND ON IT ,PREPARE ONLY FOR IT AND LOOKING FORWARD TO IT ALONE ?all the time.
A beleiver has a much more superior goal and object in life.To strive hard for the AKHIRA.At the point of departure from the worldly life,we will leave everything of this dunya for others,only our IMAAN andGOOD DEEDS will accompany us.WISE is the person who prepares for that life and uses this dunya for gaining that eternal life.
This dunya is a mere showroom of the AAKHIRA .The pleasures and enjoyments of this world is to give us an idea of how great the pleasures of the HEREAFTER will be.The hardships and difficulties are mere examples of what tortures and suffering there will be in the HEREAFTER.
This world is just an illussion.Our ultimate goal should always be the AAKHIRA.ALLAH TA`ALA has put us in this dunya to worship HIM and HIM alone.But instead we have made this dunya like our final abode.At the end of the day we are only TRAVELLERS IN THIS DUNYA.SO WE SHOULD LIVE LIKE TRAVELLERS.
MAY ALLAH TA`ALA GRANT US THE CORRECT UNDERSTANDING OF OUR DEEN AND TO MAKE THE NECESSARY PREPERATIONS FOR THE ETERNAL LIFE, IN SHA ALLAH.
REMEMBER WE WILL LEAVE THIS LIFE AS WE LIVED IT.WE HAVE ONLY ONE LIFE.MAKE IT COUNT FOR ALLAH`S SAKE
