Are we the civilized, modernized, well-developed people ever existed on this planet?
We have studied the natural laws, but neglected our inner self.
We can produce light out of atoms, but our hearts are full of darkness.
We have the advanced weapons, but why do we only use them against innocent women & children?
We have natural resources, enormous bounties; but why are thousands of people dying out of hunger?
We have technology, equipments; but why millions of people don't have enough clean water to drink?
We are trying to find life in other planets, but why are we not taking care of our own planet (environment)?
We are claiming to be peace-keeper, but are we not the ones causing destruction?
We treat our parents like we are their parents, but we forget about how they raised us, when we could not even stand?
We are wasting money on smoking, drinking, gambling, but do we care about the orphans?
We have luxuries, but why are we still searching for satisfaction?
We have harnessed enormous energy out of tiny little atoms, but have we tried to realize the might of our Creator, who created everything in the universe?
Are we not?
· Selfish
· Arrogant
· Cruel
· Immoral
Is life all about?
· Husband, Wife, Children
· Eating, Drinking, Sleeping
· Money, shopping, entertainment
· and then die!
Is this all for which we came here? Are we any different from the animals? Animals also take care of their families, they eat, they play and then they die.
Many nations, civilizations have passed before us. They were also very advanced at their times. How different are we from them, in morality?
It did not take long for Allah, the God, to destroy them. What happened to the people of Noah, Ad, Thamud, Sodom, Gomorrah and Pharoh etc? Now we see their land, houses ruined.
Al-Qur'an [al-'Asr - 103 v 1-3]
· I swear by the time,
· Most surely man is in loss,
· Except those who
o believe and
o do good, and
oenjoin on each other truth, and
oenjoin on each other patience.

All praises and thanks be to Allah, Lord of everything that exists.The most Gracious, the Most Merciful.Master of the Day of Judgment You (alone) we worship, and You (alone) we ask for help.Guide us to the Straight Way The Way of of those on whom You have bestowed Your Grace, not (the way) of those who earned Your Anger, nor those who went astray. Ameen
