The Truth of Life

Added by on 26/12/2019

All one has collected over the years throughout all stages of life, all the positions they has ascended to until he reached the climax,comes death and taking them away from them.

The truth of life...

Allah (Exalted be He) says: “The day when wealth and children avail not any man, but only one who comes to Allah with a sound heart.” (Ash-Shu`araa’ 26:88-89)

I want to introduce a short story taken from French Literature and related to this interview

He verse says: “The day when wealth and children avail not any man, but only one who comes to Allah with a sound heart.” (Ash-Shu`araa’ 26:88-89)

Lost his way in the desert, he kept walking until exhausted

Then, almost dying of thirst, he reached a little oasis where there’s water and a palm tree

While sitting down by the pool to drink he turned around

To see a bag full beside the pool thinking it’s of bread

Because after drinking he was starving to death, yes

Opened the bag he found pearls that are worth billions but out there in city

“Alas! It’s pearls!”, he screamed

The point is pearls are worth billions, but in desert a loaf of bread to eat is what one needs

He said: “Alas! It’s pearls!”

And I say: “The day when wealth and children avail not any man”

One’s financial position, their millions, their bank balances, their luxury cars

Their beautiful palaces with beautiful gardens and stunning views and swimming pools

Put differently, with death, all luxuries of life come to an end in a second

All one has collected over the years throughout all stages of life, all the positions they has ascended to

until he reached the climax, comes death and taking them away from them

Here he is, empty-handed.  This who crossed desert and wilderness

And almost died of thirst,  he drank the moment he saw pool water

Feeling hunger pangs, upon opening  the bag lying there  he screamed: “Alas! It’s pearls!”

That day pearls wouldn’t benefit him at all

That bag of pearls that is worth billions

But that day  pearls wouldn’t benefit him at all
