Where is it?

November 10, 2010

Look here look there…

Where is it?

Is it in Money?

Is it in Family?

Is it in Food?

Is it in Traveling?

Is it in Dancing?

What is it in?

Everyone is going crazy looking for it in things around them. But do they find it there? No they don’t! Because it’s not there!!!

Peace! Peace is what we are searching for! Trying to bring it into our lives, because without it this life is a misery. However, trying to find it in the wrong place can make life as miserable!

Allah having created everything, is the One who puts qualities and characteristics into things. And removes them as well. It is Allah who has put the quality of thirst quenching in water. If He wants, he can remove that quality, and we can keep drinking gallons and gallons of water and not get the satisfaction we desire. It is Allah who has put the quality of removing tiredness from sleeping. If He wishes, he can remove it, and the truth is that there are many people in this world who have sleep which lacks that quality. They can sleep for hours and hours and when they wake up they are more tired than before.

So the question now is, where has He put the quality of peace? It can be in everything we have, if we do one thing. That is follow the pattern of the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him). That pattern contains the quality of peace. Live life! Eat, drink, sleep, study, work, and do whatever you like, but do it on the pattern of the Prophet (peace be upon him), saturating life with peace! Allah sent the Prophet (peace be upon him) as an example for us to follow in order to attain His love.

THAT LOVE IS PEACE, THE ONLY PEACE WE’LL EVER FIND!

May we all be blessed with that peace! Ameen
