Is not God Almighty enough for us? Why do we chase the mirage of Ma Siwallah, things other than Allah, when all we need is him: God Almighty?
To those of us who aspire for all things sublime and wonderful, not just in this world, but also in the next world, I suggest we try God Almighty.
Maybe, once you have him, you will have all and you will need nothing besides. And you will need to chase shadows and phantoms no more.
And I submit two words to your consideration that will help you find God:
Once you have those two, Qur’an and Hadith, and you decide to take them seriously, as seriously as they should be taken, or as seriously as you can take them, you will find God.
Those two — Qur’an and Hadith — will take you to God, provided you take them the way they should be taken and you handle them the way they should be handled.
Here now are a couple of hints with regard to them that will help you handle them right:
(a) Don’t forget, this is the same Qur’an that if God had placed on a mountain, the mountain would have gone to smithereens.
Lawu Anzalnaa Haadhal Qur’ana ‘Ala Jabalin, La-Ra-Aytahu Khwaashi-an Mutaswaddi-an Min Khashyatillah.
(b) And don’t forget that Hadith has to do with Allah’s most beloved creation, Muhammad, Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam, for whom the gates of heaven were thrown open, right here in this world.
(c) And don’t forget that Prophet Muhammad, Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam, is also a man whom not only God’s angels, but also God Almighty himself blesses and exalts and glorifies.
Innallaha Wa Malaa-ikatahu Yuswalloona ‘Alan Nabiyyi!
What more can anyone want, especially those who say they want Allah and they are working for him?
What more can anyone expect to get?
