I was hoping that the next time I came back would be with answers.
Alas! I am still as confused as ever. Top it up with frustrations.
What really is in this life?
How do you get the energy to wake up every morning knowing you are working in a messed up life?
Where people hardly care?
Where it’s a man eat man society?
Where you do good and people eat you up for showing your humane nature.
Where you conduct an honest living and everyone around you is corrupt making it close to impossible to function normal.
Where you try make the world a better place but everyone around you is simply opposing the very thought of it.
I try drawing encouragement from this verse of the Quran (76:8-10)
إِنَّمَا نُطْعِمُكُمْ لِوَجْهِ اللَّهِ لَا نُرِيدُ مِنكُمْ جَزَاءً وَلَا شُكُورًا
“And they give food in spite of love for it to the needy, the orphan, and the captive,
[Saying], “We feed you only for the countenance of Allah . We wish not from you reward or gratitude.
Indeed, We fear from our Lord a Day austere and distressful.”
Indeed, I do not wish for reward from you, but it is so heart-breaking seeing the path humans are choosing to take. Away from Humanity, away from the right path, away from justice and fairness. Really life would be much easier if everyone abode by the path of Allah (Monotheism) and the teachings of the prophet Muhammad (S.A.W)
‘قال عليه الصلاة والسلام فيما رواه أنس بن مالك رضي الله خادم رسول الله e، عَنْ النَّبِيِّ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ قَالَ:
((لَا يُؤْمِنُ أَحَدُكُمْ حَتَّى يُحِبَّ لِأَخِيهِ مَا يُحِبُّ لِنَفْسِهِ))
“None of you is a believer until He loves for his brother what He loves for himself.”
I only pray for strength and guidance to the right path and staying firm on it and for guidance for the rest of humanity.
Life is beautiful, but we humans make it ugly with our actions. We are our own enemies.
