It's All About God

You know when you're looking for something and you're so stressed out.. and then you realize it's been in your hand all along?

We're like that. Us humans. Except a lot of us, in fact according to the Qur'an, most of us die before looking down at our hands. And we die searching. Worst still, most of the time we don't even realise we're searching. We struggle against monsters and phantoms of our own creation and then we sink into sadness, depression, frustration, anger or despair. Perhaps that's a bit of a straw man.. We're not always like that. But our life as a whole is like.. Oh I get so angry. I get so angry when I see people just.. so disconnected from the truth about their lives. But of course I'm the same.. I just realized today that I'm fighting phantoms in my head so I'm not exempt. But still.. I can see it with so many people around me.. This disconnection from the Heavens..

Our whole life is a journey to God.. It's.. It's huge. You know?
We're the privileged of the privileged. We're privileged to be humans - the ones God gave intelligence and a consciousness to have the ability to actually embark on a journey towards God.. The fact that we can contemplate and understand that concept. It's for that very reason (I believe) that Allah SWT made the angels prostrate to Adam PBUH (in respect).
And then we're privileged again to be of the Prophet Muhammad PBUH's nation.

God wants us. And we're .. chasing phantoms. Fighting Lochness monsters. Worrying about insignificant details of our existence.

And it's our loss. Because God doesn't need us. But God didn't create us so that He could put us in Hell. But many choose it. It's silly to think people choose Hell but actually they do. So many people know that the route to happiness, salvation, peace, prosperity and all good is a certain way - and they're still going about with their lives .. ignoring the Pink Elephant in the room.
And still I chase phantoms. Still I worry about things that aren't even there.

It's not about them. It's about God. And the minute my life stops being a constant fight against imaginary demons.. I will truly be free. But that's for another post, inshaAllah!
