living life with closed eyes

Bismillahir rahman nir raheem

We often hear about blind people. About how they are unable to “see”. How they are unable to appreciate all that they are surrounded by.

How they cannot appreciate the beauty of nature.

How they can not appreciate the gorgeousness Of life.

How a blind person needs guidance and assistance either of a person, walking stick or in some cases a dog.

A blind person is usually pitied by those around them.

But do we not realise that we too are blind?

the difference is that we are blind by choice.  We chose blindness over sight.

We too do not appreciate all that we have around us.

We too are unable to see the many fabours of Allah upon us.

We too are unable to see the true beauty, wisdom and greatness of our Creator.

We choose to be blind so that we too don’t appreciate all that we are surrounded by.

We are so caught up in the unimportant things of our lives that we too do not have time to appreciate the beauty of nature created so immaculately by our master Himself.

Life has so many different aspects, jut ee choose the wrong things in life and are blinded by these evils that we cannot appreciate the gorgeousness of life.

We are mere mortals. Imperfect. We are in constant need of assistance.  Assistance from our Lord, from His word, the Quraan, assistance from the perfect life of our beloved nabi and the guidance from the lives of his stars… the blessed companions of the prophet sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam.

We too are bbeing pitied by the angels and those above us. That we have the choice to see yet we choose to be blind. We choose to not see the miracles of Allah all around us. We too are being pitied because even though the signs are so bright and clear, we still choose to ignore them.
