The Great Success
The Great Success
I sat alone meditating and contemplating,
Deeply thinking about the universe, the human being and life.
I asked myself:
What would a fetus say if I were to phone him,
If I were to ask him about the circumstances there in his mother's womb;
How is he living?
I called him up and asked him to tell me something about his life….
His answer was:
Although my world is tiny, I am very happy here …
An umbilical cord feeds me,
A strange amniotic fluid protects me against any outside effects.
My world is ideal…no lying…no cheating and no hypocrisy…
I asked him if he had anything to add.
He replied: for the time being, he could not form his impression of the other side of the story
His last exact words were 'good-bye! Till we meet in your world'.
I waited until the plane landed after that nice short journey,
The delivery had already taken place
The child was still crying
People around were cheerfully laughing.
Then I asked the new born baby: as a newcomer to our world,
What would you say now?
His answer was: although your world is huge, I see it gloomy and dark.
This life is weary; a tear, a sigh,
Then I'll say good-bye and die.
Your world is full of lying, cheating and hypocrisy.
I wished I stayed in my mother's womb forever.
I told him 'there is a way if you follow, you can change the terms of your life.
Your tears can become candles;
Your sighs can become smiles
Even your death can become life in itself.
You have come to this world while crying
When people around you were laughing.
Following that way, you die smiling
When people around you are crying…
He immediately asked me: 'What is this way?
Please tell me?
I told him: ' The only way to achieve this is to believe in Allah (Glory be to Him):
To believe in His beautiful names and attributes
To believe that He is: Allah, the Peace, the Merciful, the Loving, the All-Knowing, the Gracious..etc
If you do so, you will win paradise and gain immortality
And in paradise you will have:
Life without death,
Youthfulness without old age,
Happiness without misery
And health without sickness.
And this is the real victory
The Great Success & Everlasting Delight and happiness
