Your Creator created you and equipped you with a device called the brain and its associated organs, unlike that which He gave to His other creations.
And He gave you an eternal life and put you in Al Jannah – The Paradise.
Then you were placed on this Earth for some time to test your obedience.
And He laid down a path for you back to Jannah.
And He gave you a map narrating every hurdle in detail in that path which you need to be aware of and protect yourself from on your way back to Jannah to live eternally.
He informed you that you have an enemy within yourself, the NAFS – your desire
He informed you that you have an unseen enemy, the shaitan – among the Jinns
He informed you that you have a seen enemy, shaitan – among the Humans
He informed you of your enemy, the kuffar, who will not believe in the creator and those who will not follow the CORRECT guidelines of your creator.
And then He informed you of the hurdle of the life (only around 80 years).
He informed you about the hurdle of the moment of death.
He informed you about the hurdle of the grave (the space of time is unknown).
He informed you about the hurdle of the Resurrection (the space of time is unknown).
He informed you about the hurdle of the Day of Judgement (50,000 years long).
And then he warned you about the greatest hurdle of all, Jahannam, Hell (eternal).
And He laid down exactly how to overcome all those hurdles and make your way back to Jannah.
He detailed everything which, if you do, will make Him LOVE you and that which will make Him HATE you.
He warned you of everything which, if you do, will earn His WRATH and enter you in FIRE.
And He detailed everything which, if you follow, will earn His Blessing, Mercy and His Forgiveness.
O Mankind, but you only have this tiny life span to work to overcome all those hurdles of the journey which will last for a long long time.
But what are you doing? Why do you only care about ONE hurdle which consists of the most smallest unit of your entire journey and forget about the other parts of the journey which are unimaginably longer? How are you so deluded and comfortable in this tiny space of your entire Journey?
If you think this is about you, if you think this connects you, then this blog is designed to give you the whole picture of your journey In Shaa Allah, Bi Iznillah, so that you can find your status as to where you stand, what you lack and what you need to work on. I recommend you browse through the map and get your heart involved in it.
May Allah Subhanahu make us understand and May Allah guide us and May Allah, the perpetual forgiver forgive us and allow us to enter into Jannah, the Paradise, our original home. Ameen.
