The hustling pleasing winds, the beautiful cautious lights, the broad and long appealing runways, the motivational screeching sounds of the wheels touching down, the bravura sky lit with the beauties of enchantment- this was a view I would never want to miss on any given day. Sitting on my most favorite place right on the top of the water tank, heights above the terrace and away from the raucous world in the mode of contemplation, this was a time I loved the most, where it was just I, me and myself without any alien human intervention.

However, this time, it wasn’t the same. I wasn’t relishing the view anymore, as everything in front of me which was once crystal clear had started to blur. The decision of what to leave, what to achieve and what to prioritize was hard. The decision that at some point of time, you would have to leave your passion, the love, the life which once you thought was all you ever wanted, was indeed hard. That was a point when you realized that you had to leave it, not because you weren’t strong enough to move ahead but rather, because you were even more stronger to leave something to achieve much more. Register here!

It wasn’t the most constructive time for me, it was rather the most awakening point of my life. I realized after a series of disappointments of expectations from the rightly wrong ones that there is nothing on this Earth worth any attachment that can take away the reason for what we have been created. You could walk a thousand miles towards what you really desire only to realize that it was a mirage of your own thoughts.

When you run behind something which is so momentary, you fail to understand that you fatigue your own consciousness and existence. To which an example strikes my mind where I heard a beautiful lady say, the similitude of life we run behind is like a dog, which always wanted to chase a car every morning just to race it down. A man observing this attitude of the dog asked its owner, “Do you think it will ever win the race”. The owner smirked and replied, “Even if it wins over, do you think it has achieved anything?”. So, let’s ask this question to ourselves -the things or desires we are chasing behind -is it really worth it? Will it actually avail us anything when we lay 6 feet under the desolate ground?

We often get attached to people and their feelings, society and their standards and vicissitudes of the world. When anything in it goes a little out of track we feel we are doomed.

Let’s face it hard, it’s difficult to detach from anything we love a lot, but we can attach to something which is far more enticing. Here, I do not mean that you stop valuing your relations with your family or friends, all I mean to say is never expect their love to be constant “at least” in this life, as you are bound to get hurt every time they do something which you have never anticipated.

We, are humans and we are ought to change with time and our feelings might fluctuate. Hence, instead of clinging onto something and then getting hurt, it’s better to love and release ourselves from expectations; and instead, give that part of our life only to the One who deserves it, who is way above the anthropological world, the One who fashioned us to our perfect beings.

Henceforth, be ready for a world which will break you, tear and rip you apart, make you feel like a loser or even deliberately make you fall. Nevertheless, instead of wondering or saying “I didn’t expect this from you”, here’s what you do – close your eyes, take a deep breath,  get up with all your might and shrug their dirt off, look at them and give a big bright smile and tell aloud the magical spell, “HasbiyAllahu Wa Niya’amal Waqeel” (My Lord is sufficient for me and He is the Best Disposer of my Affairs) and that’s when you will see how the tables starts turning around!

Remember: “Never let any soul in this realm, the power to break you”

    Subhan Allah. It’s indeed true. But its best and best for the person who is average and normal and good.
    But for extra ordinary he or she is suppose to complete the test and remain firm. Because after all it shows your attitude toward love. What kind of nature you have. Do u give worst against bad or do u give best against worst.
    How could you be mean. When someone is in your heart and part of your heart. Then how can u remove him or her if he or she removes u.
    I know the perfect love is love against love not one sided love.
    Which many non believer want from Allah after their denial and going against Allah.
    And answer for them is its not like you disobey Allah and in exchange he still remain loving you .although he do that’s why he keep the door of repentance open but on judgement day only punishment is their result.
    Still see he keeps the door open as far as this world is concern. There r many things which r bound to this world indeed betrayal is specially for this world but repentance and asking forgiveness is for this world. Even other don’t do u still need to keep the worm and special feeling alive for someone who even left you and betrayed you. U should pray best for them.
    It’s equal to longitude of earth.
    So let me make it short.
    The person who can’t forgive and approximate best seen from other for awhile and then sometime later table changed and he or she forget everything.
    How can she or he can appriaciate blessing of Allah while Allah also bless much and then takes for test you r gonna forget and leave Allah of u have that mind set.
    English is not my native language otherwise u would have seen same beauty words above lol.
    Any way they said If someone is not thankful for human how could he be for Allah.
    See ayoub as who suffered for 18 years after loosing everyone blessed by Allah. But he remain thankful.
    Never just forget the beautiful moments u spent with someone. Like u pictured above.
    if they not not any more then move on abviously but never forget them and appriaciate them.
    This is what a momin should do.
    May Allah help all ameen.

      beautiful ……. Islam is so complete….. it all depends on how to choose to handle your situation….”failure is when you quit”……so try your best in every situation, for surely the more patience and endurance for Allah’s sake, is most rewarding..

    Subhanallah, the article is inspiring, educating and above all, will ultimately leads to the instant and sudden change of our philosophy towards this dunya, and gear us up to confronting the unexpected at any given time.
    But the introductory aspect of the article was very tedious for me to comprehend due to the unfamiliar words you used .
    Nevertheless, jazaakallahu bi ahsani jazaaihi, wa zawwajakallahu arbaa.

    May 3, 2016 at 3:12 pm

    Muhammad Danish has described well as this article can be valid for situations where you are chasing purposelessly,when what one is chasing is not worth chasing however Allah alone can do impossible things so if someone loves someone so how can love remove?pure love is felt I think always so one can leave it on to Allah but how to remove love from heart?

    May 3, 2016 at 3:13 pm

    Truly awesome…
