Stage to Stage

October 31, 2010

Is it not amazing how we travel from stage to stage in life, and we rarely look back to see how far we’ve come?

We enter new stages in life nervous and anxious, not knowing what this new stage holds in store for us. Why should we be nervous and anxious when everything that was going to happen has already been written anyway and we’re just reading what has been written.

No matter what happens in your life, good or bad, it should be embraced without it taking a strong hold of your negative emotions. One rule to Allah’s Book of decree, is that after difficulty comes ease. So can we be optimistic and look forward to reading the next chapter? Even if the current chapter is seventy thousand pages long. Why are we so hasty?

On friday I prayed janazah over my father’s cousin, this morning my cousin had a baby girl, this evening my 2 year old nephew got admitted to hospital after having 2 fits, and on the same evening my brother flew out of the nest to start a new life with his family.

“So I swear by the afterglow of sunset; And by the night and whatever it gathers in its darkness; And by the moon when it is at the full, You shall certainly travel from stage to stage (in this life and in the Hereafter).
