No One but You

March 2, 2012

There is only ONE you! There is only ONE me! From Adam to the last person to be born, there will be no one like you nor me! Why does each and every human being, have a different finger print? A different DNA? A different appearance? Even identical twins are two totally separate individuals. There is a resemblance between them, but they are not the same! Surely, it shows Allah’s undoubted ingenuity! However, Allah has purpose for whatever He does, and that purpose is what I am looking for.

How can we be like someone else when we are not, them? We cant! Then why are we so hell-bent in trying to be like, so and so, and wanting the life of, so and so? That’s not going to happen! Your life is your’s to live and mine is mine to live! Our paths are totally different! Our roles are totally different!

“All the world’s a stage,
And all the men and women merely players;
They have their exits and their entrances,
And one man in his time plays many parts…”

William Shakespeare

Search for your role is life:

Stop poking your face into other people’s scripts! Stop reading their lines! You have your own! If you have lost your script, look for it! If you can’t find it, then there is no point of your existence on the set!

How saddened am I for those who have lost their script! And more for those who think they have found it but in fact they are just peeking here and there into those of others! At times I feel I’ve lost my script as well. Or maybe its right there in my hand! I’m too busy admiring the poetic lines of others that I fail to look down at my own.

The first step, for people who are in the same state as I, is to stop thinking. The thoughts that are brewing in our minds are the left overs of those whose lives we yearn to possess! So the best way is to, get rid of the rotten brew and start fresh. But wait! Don’t start re-brewing. Have you washed the cauldron in which you brew? You don’t want any contaminants of the previous brew adulterating your new one!  The best way to do so is to fill your mind with Allah. How? Talk to Him. Tell Him how you are feel. And then sleep on it.

Morning is the best time to start anything great. So when you wake up, keeping Allah present in your head, start searching for your script, this is the second step. The first place to look is the place you’d least expect it to be. Right in front of you! You have been using your uniqueness to change the course of lives of the people around you. Remember: what you do, no one else can do! You impact the world, the way no one else can! So take control of your life! If you’ve gotten this far with whatever you’ve done, you’ve probably done it right, you’re just not sure what you do. Everyone has something that gets them going. Something that sparks energy into their heart, what is it? This is a little tricky because there may be many things that seem to make you feel that way. But there is only one thing that is the real deal! At the moment I am at this very step, trying to discover what makes me feel like me.

Here comes the most important step, step three. There is one roll inside each of our unique rolls and that is, to help others find their script. People like you and me, who are have lost their cause of existence, they need help. But handle them with care. Sometimes when someone asks you the way to a certain shop in a mall, you tend to direct them in such a way that they get lost even more than they were before. So its best to guide them to the Help Desk, because that is situated at the most central location and the easiest to find. Where is the Help Desk though? Direct them towards Allah, and that’s all you’ve got to do. The deed you have just done has created enough energy to help a lost soul find his way and has also recharged your torch that had started to flicker.

You’re good to go! A fully charged torch, a map and a straight road ahead, as long as you can see it! Keep charging your torch along the way, or it’ll not be long until you find yourself back in the middle of nowhere!

Surah An-Nisa
O mankind! Now hath a proof from your Lord come unto you, and We have sent down unto you a clear light; (174) As for those who believe in Allah, and hold fast unto Him, them He will cause to enter into His mercy and grace, and will guide them unto Him by a straight road. (175)
