You will be left with no reason to live…..
There is only one reason for any one of us to live, ONLY one which lives forever – Allah, who is there for you forever, only one purpose for which created for.
Wake up everyday, knowing this is another day He has given you to work for him
I say this today, because recently in my job, as a crisis counselor, I took a call from someone who had made another human her reason to live and now after losing her reason to live, she had nothing left to live for. The pain she was going through cannot be put into words. She had no reason to live, so she kept saying whats the point, even if this pain ends today, whats the point, I am just filling time on earth.
What ached me was not just this woman’s pain but what had led to it.
What ached me was the fact that I KNOW there are millions of more people, good people out there, who are going falling in the same deep hole of pain, yet they don’t know it.
I don’t even know if she is alive till now or did she really kill herself. All I can do now is make dua for her.
But as I sat to make dua for her, I realised no matter how much I ache for her, no matter how much I care for this stranger, Allah cares for her far far far more than me.
Allah knows every single second of her life. He knows her pain, He is closer to her than anyone else. He is watching over her all the time.
She has forgotten him, but the doors to his love and mercy are still wide open for her.
When we make someone else our reason to live, when we define our entire self worth by someone than we are left with nothing after they leave
To make someone else your reason to live is not only unfair to yourself but also unfair to that person.
Moreover whether its a person or something or some goal, if we make that our reason to live that we have taken the right of Allah and given it to someone else.
Allah has made ease for in the guidance of Islam is ease for us, in ways we cannot even comprehend.
