HAPPINESS IS WHEN WE ARE BEING LOVED AND CARED FOR

Every one wants to be loved and cared for.
We would be happy if someone loves us and we would be sad if someone hates us.
That is the nature of every people’s heart, irrespective of creed or religion.
This is what we call natural instinct.
This natural instinct could not be removed from our heart.
And no heart is devoid of this instinct.
It is part and parcel of human life.
It needs to be taken care of and fulfilled like the needs to eat and drink which are instinctive needs that cannot be ignored but must be satisfied.
Otherwise, life would be incomplete and happiness will be gone

To challenge our own pure instinctive needs is just like hurting ourselves.
Just like someone who rejects marriage
he is actually going against his own instinctive needs.
That is equivalent to hurting himself.
Instead, if we care for our own instinctive needs and satisfy its requirements
we have fulfilled our responsibility towards our own selves.
Only then we would feel that we love and care for ourselves and others.

Someone who is loved by others would feel that his natural instinct has been fulfilled.
This makes him calm and happy
On the other hand, if someone feels that there is no one who loves him
and he feels everybody despises and hates him
his heart and soul would experience emptiness so much so that he feels life is meaningless and is pessimistic about the future
He would suffer from dejection and humiliation
He would feel lonely and isolated in the midst of a crowd
Life seems to be meaningless, therefore he would rather die
If he does not possess iman (faith), this man would normally decide to take his own life
Indeed, failure to fulfill one’s natural instinct would cause psychological depression, that could lead to suicide

WHEN THE HEART IS WARM AND RELAXED

When our heart is warm and relaxed, a cramped home feels spacious.
When our heart is cold and stressed, a spacious house feels cramped.


We need to protect the spiritual component of our hearts
Comfort, hardships, all are determined by it.
When our heart is open and relaxed, a hard life feels comfortable
A difficult life feels luxurious
Being poor and yet feeling rich and joyful
When our spiritual heart is cold and tight
Wherever we go, we feel like we are being squeezed
A wide open space feels narrow and constricted
We are wealthy and yet we feel poor, we have and yet we feel as if we have not
Whatever we eat, it doesn’t taste right
And yet there are various types of dishes served in front of us
When our heart is small and tight, we don’t know what we are looking for
As if we are searching for something that we don’t own
We feel as if we don’t own anything
We feel something is missing endlessly, we feel lacking always
Thus, the feelings of discomfort, thrusting into our hearts
Feeling of restlessness pouncing our hearts
Like our chest being affected by the invisible cancer
The only feeling there is pain

LOVE GOD THE GENUINE LOVE

Love God is the true love
Human beings fall in love easily with something that strikes their eyes
Human beings also easily love something that comes to their mind
While loving something that is seen by the eye
Or something that is simple to think of
It is a miserly love
Loving something that can be detected by the heart or soul , it is hard to detect
Because the mind and the eyes are always concealing the heart
Usually, the mind and eyes destroy the soul
Because of that, the heart and soul do not recognize their Lord
For that reason, God is not missed and loved

    

 

But God is the pure and true love. Love God is eternal love
Love God, the love that brings everlasting happiness
Loving God is a superior and prestige love
Rafiqul A’la , Uppermost and Faithful Companion
Loving Rafiqul A’la, there is no disappointment
Loving God, we will never be betrayed
The love that will be our defender
The love that will be our protector where ever we are
The love that will save us in both worlds
The greatest love that is unbeatable and unmatched
The love that if people know what it is
They will not only sacrifice their wealth and energy but even their own lives.

THE ROLE OF GOD IN LIFE

God is needed in life
He is everything for everyone
Let us create a picture to understand who God really is
The world we live in belongs to God
In the sky above the earth there are the sun, the moon and the stars: all are God’s creations
The air we breathe so we may live, each moment to another is bestowed by God
The beating heart is the body’s engine as designed by God
The mind is used to think and gain knowledge, a gift from God
Our physical body which is in constant use for human needs, is created by God
Our heart or soul of interchanging emotions
Such as happiness, sadness, comfort and hate: ruled by God
When we are sick, we take the medicine, but God is the One who cures not the medicine itself
When we are hungry and thirsty, we need to eat, all food and drink come from God
After eating we feel full, God is the One who makes it so
We feel tired after work and in need of rest, God allows us to sleep,
Then our energy returns to normal so may continue working, God is the One who gives it back
For enjoyment, God created man and woman
so that each may make the other happy
this joy comes from God
To bring forth the next generation
this is the result of the relationship between a man and woman
The birth of a child is also an enjoyment to both the man and woman, the parents
it will help fill the emptiness of the heart
When the relationship starts to break
the child will help bring them back together
Similarly, if we ponder deeply
and observe closely that there is nothing beyond God’s control
Then, God is greatly needed in life
or life is God’s responsibility
But why do humans forget God?
Why do humans not feel God’s role?
This is why God punishes people with the feeling of emptiness
The heart in distress, though they may have power and wealth
Do fear God and love Him
God is greatly needed
God is everything in the lives of everyone

ALLAH THE SOURCE OF HAPPINESS


 Image

Allah is the source of happiness
Not everyone can feel this
It can only be felt by a soul that has taqwa
A mere du’a is delightful enough
Even though it is uncertain if it is going to be granted
Having a conversation and whispering with Allah
Its delight is already sensed
Petitioning with Him
feels so beautiful

Allah Taala is felt to be so near
But without any medium and method
He is felt to be present everywhere
But He is not there
We feel strongly that He is with us

All are without any means
God is felt that He is Most needed
Masya-Allah how beautiful it is to have God
His blessings and His bestowals are truly felt
Whether it is apparent or non-apparent

Every moment He sends down His blessings
Allah! Allah! Allah!
How magnificent it is to live with God
God is our life and death

God is everything there is
Do not forget about God!

ABUYA
