“Why do people have to leave each other?”
Ultimately, the question was about the nature of the dunya as a place of fleeting moments and temporary attachments. As a place where people are with you today, and leave or die tomorrow. But this reality hurts our very being because it goes against our nature. We, as humans, are made to seek, love, and strive for what is perfect and what is permanent. We are made to seek what’s eternal. We seek this because we were not made for this life.Our first and true home was Paradise: a land that is both perfect and eternal. So the yearning for that type of life is a part of our being. The problem is that we try to find that here. And so we create ageless creams and cosmetic surgery in a desperate attempt to hold on—in an attempt to mold this world into what it is not, and will never be.
Wow. MasyaALLAH…so true. So heartwrenching, touching and so, so profound. I’m glad I came across this article thanks to sis Aisyah on FB who shared it on her profile page, Alhamdulillah. It’s long, but u MUST READ. I was feeling pretty depressed before this (the joy of job-hunting) but I feel so much better already! Subhanallah, I’m like, happy now after reading the article :)
“because this life isn’t perfect; for if it was, what would the next be called?”
