Where did our SPIRITUAL side go?

ِAs you grow up, you start to realise how fast life is passing you by without even noticing, you keep thinking of the future worried,sitting by yourself scratching out and planning your future like you are guaranteed to live till tomorrow!.

I’ve met so many people who don’t believe in the spiritual side of our lives!, sometimes you can’t tell why they don’t, I think some of them couldn’t find the answers to their questions or may be they couldn’t find the right people to ask them their questions or simply they didnt bother themselves to look for the answers, knowing answers give you inner peace and joy! It’s hard to move forward when you don’t know where you’re headed or why. Allah’s plan gives us the answers to life’s most basic questions like, “Where did I come from?” “What’s my purpose here?” And, “What happens when I die?” Knowing the answers gives us hope as All mighty Allah said in the Qura’an :

﴿ لَقَدْ خَلَقْنَا الْإِنْسَانَ فِي أَحْسَنِ تَقْوِيمٍ (4) ﴾ ( سورة التين )


 ﴿ يَا أَيُّهَا النَّاسُ إِنْ كُنْتُمْ فِي رَيْبٍ مِنَ الْبَعْثِ فَإِنَّا خَلَقْنَاكُمْ مِنْ تُرَابٍ ثُمَّ مِنْ نُطْفَةٍ ثُمَّ مِنْ عَلَقَةٍ ثُمَّ مِنْ مُضْغَةٍ مُخَلَّقَةٍ وَغَيْرِ مُخَلَّقَةٍ لِنُبَيِّنَ لَكُمْ وَنُقِرُّ فِي الْأَرْحَامِ مَا نَشَاءُ إِلَى أَجَلٍ مُسَمًّى ثُمَّ نُخْرِجُكُمْ طِفْلًا ثُمَّ لِتَبْلُغُوا أَشُدَّكُمْ وَمِنْكُمْ مَنْ يُتَوَفَّى وَمِنْكُمْ مَنْ يُرَدُّ إِلَى أَرْذَلِ الْعُمُرِ لِكَيْلَا يَعْلَمَ مِنْ بَعْدِ عِلْمٍ شَيْئًا وَتَرَى الْأَرْضَ هَامِدَةً فَإِذَا أَنْزَلْنَا عَلَيْهَا الْمَاءَ اهْتَزَّتْ وَرَبَتْ وَأَنْبَتَتْ مِنْ كُلِّ زَوْجٍ بَهِيجٍ ﴾ [الحج: 5]

ثُمَّ جَعَلْنَاهُ نُطْفَةً فِي قَرَارٍ مَكِينٍ * ثُمَّ خَلَقْنَا النُّطْفَةَ عَلَقَةً فَخَلَقْنَا الْعَلَقَةَ مُضْغَةً فَخَلَقْنَا الْمُضْغَةَ عِظَامًا فَكَسَوْنَا الْعِظَامَ لَحْمًا ثُمَّ أَنْشَأْنَاهُ خَلْقًا آخَرَ فَتَبَارَكَ اللَّهُ أَحْسَنُ الْخَالِقِينَ ﴾ [المؤمنون: 13، 14]

Allah created us perfectly but he didn’t make our lives perfect, so he allowed you to come to earth to experience the joy—as well as pain—of a physical body, making you stronger by learning from your mistakes,no matter how perfect you try to be Allah knows that you’re a huamn being and you’ll do mistakes as long as you’re alive that’s why prophet Mohammed peace be upon him said :

عن أنس -رضي الله عنه- قال: قال رسول الله -صلى الله عليه وعلى آله وسلم-: كل بني آدم خطاء، وخير الخطائين التوابون أخرجه الترمذي وابن ماجه

sometimes bad things happen to us, even if we didn’t make any bad decision, you feel pained, your friends leave or your loved ones die, you get sick! ,but you should believe that Allah takes no pleasure in your suffering, your difficulties, regardless of their cause, because it can bring you closer to him, it strengthen your Iman. As the story of the prophet Jacob in the Qura’an he said :

وَجَاءُوا عَلَى قَمِيصِهِ بِدَمٍ كَذِبٍ قَالَ بَلْ سَوَّلَتْ لَكُمْ أَنْفُسُكُمْ أَمْرًا فَصَبْرٌ جَمِيلٌ وَاللَّهُ الْمُسْتَعَانُ عَلَى مَا تَصِفُونَ (18)

Oh Allah guid us through this life!, you are the creator and you know what’s  the best for us, dont let us worry about the future because we’re certain that you’ve paved a better path for us, I wouldnt doubt your wisdom in any situation I go through no matter how hard it becomes, because I know you want the best for me, so thank you Allah for who I am today ,Who I will be tomorrow and who I’m going to be in the future.
