Islam Invite to the Way of your Lord with wisdom and fair preaching, and argue with them in a way that is better. Truly, your Lord knows best who has gone astray from His Path, and He is the Best Aware of those who are guided." Holy Qur'an 16:125

Lightbulb The Worldly Life: A Trial for Man

The Worldly Life: A Trial for Man
by Dr. Khalid Zaheer

The worldly life of ours, which is a very short duration of existence between birth and death, is only a trial, nothing more and nothing less than that. Whatever different phases man experiences here, whether in the form of success or failure, are all different manifestations of this trial. The culmination of this life, however, would herald the beginning of another existence which will not taste death anymore.

The Holy Quran invites man to lead a life which would destine him to the life of eternal pleasures. It warns him that a failure to earn a place in the everlasting happiness would lead him inevitably to an abode of unending ignominy and pain. All human beings, it informs us, are travelling on either of the two ways---the one that leads to heaven or the one that has hell waiting impatiently at the end.

The only way a man can ensure entry into the heaven is to adopt the life of the Hereafter as an uncompromisable ideal in he present life. All worldly decisions should conform to this ideal. His life should be an adequate testimony to the fact that he keeps his `future' much dearer than his `present'. Whether he is carrying out business, discharging his family obligations, dealing with fellow human beings, or responding to the call for prayers, his overwhelming preference for the next life should be clearly evident.

On the contrary, if an individual is so deeply engrossed in worldly affairs that religious considerations---nay considerations of the next life---are relegated to be secondary, all planning is confined to the uncertain present, success and failure are gauged by the worldly barometer, he is travelling on the highway to Hell. The verdict of the Holy Quran is:

"Whoso desires the transitory things of this world, We readily grant them---such things as We please, to such persons as We will; in the end, [however], We have provided Hell for them, they will burn therein, disgraced and rejected. Those who desire the Hereafter and strive for it with necessary effort, and have faith---they are the ones whose efforts would find favour [with their Lord]." (17:18-19)

Let us consciously adopt the way to Heaven and avoid being consigned to the unbearable pains of Hell.
"If you are going through hell, keep going."
