Hijrat and Ghurbat in a Believer’s Life [Quote – 568]

Published Categorised as Quote-Unquote, Quote-Unquote – Book VI (501-600)

A Believer’s life is one of perpetual Hijrat constant movement and non-stop walking away and running to.

Leaving the world behind as it were.

A Believer is constantly walking away from bad things and moving toward good things. 

And his life is one of non-stop running to Allah — and away from all else.

As the Qur’an says:

Fa-Firroo Ilallah!

Innee Dhaahibun Ilaa Rabbee.

And a Believer’s life is one of Ghurbat — loneliness; being and feeling alone; unrecognized; unappreciated; and being a stranger in his own land, and among his own friends and in the midst of the most robust and vibrant company.

Blessed be the one who blessed the Strangers, Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam, and said:

Fa-Toobaa Lil-Ghurabaa!

And yet a Believer finds solace, comfort and joy in the company of Believers and of Good People and of what ancient Christians — even some Muslims — used to call the Righteous.
