What connection do we have? what do i mean by this? well there are many things that connects us to one another but we need to start thinking about what our connection to Allah (SWT), the Mighty, the Majestic is.
Think about this…you have your phone, your lap top, your car and all these fancy electronic gadgets that connects you to people. But what we can never compare those items with is our connection we have with Allah each time we prostrate towards him.
Your phone dies, your lap top battery dies, the power can shut off..but what have you actually lost? You have only lost your connection with creation. So what is more important?
Remember Allah has No battery life, No power cable your connection to him is everlasting. so ask yourself again what is more important to you?
Your connection to this Dunyah? or your connection to the Akhirah? both are vital because Allah created us with a purpose. He put us on this Dunyah so that we may worship Him and Him Alone. But what is important is where your heart is connected to.
Think about this next time you feel frustrated when your worldly items and possessions fail you..and trust me they will fail you that is for sure. Because you chose the temporary life of this Dunyah over having everlasting life in the Akhirah.
So what connection will you choose?
“Know that the life of this world is only play and amusement pomp and mutual boasting among you, and rivalry in respect of wealth and children, as the likeness of vegetation after rain: the growth of it is pleasing to the tiller, but afterwards it dries up and you see it turning yellow, and then it becomes straw. But in the hereafter there is a severe torment for the disbelievers and there is forgiveness from Allah and [His] good pleasure for the believers who do good, whereas the life of this world is only a decieving enjoyment” [ Quran, 57:20]
