The Key To Unlock The Soul - Wednesday, March 3, 2010
Assalamu'alaikum wrh wbkt ....A'uzubillah.....Bismillahirrahman nirraheem
Maulana says that we are living in a world of possibilities, a world where everything occurs for a reason and because of a reason, an asbab. That is a characteristic of this worldly life, and it is completely different from the characteristics of the heavenly realms.
In life, what Allah places before us, are choices. We have to make the right choice in order to benefit. Maulana says that it is like a huge table filled with all kinds of food, and we are free to pick and choose, which ones we want to eat.
On one side of the table, there is heavenly food, food for the soul, every single nourishment that is needed by our spiritual selves, is found there, nothing is missing. Prophets and True Guides (Saints) beckon and welcome you to this side of the table, so that you may partake of its goodness. However, many reject the heavenly invitations by these guided ones, as the journey to that side of the table, is difficult and arduous, there are many terms and conditions to be met before we can get the food. Maulana reminds us that, if we wish to achieve goodness, we must be prepared to take the difficult route (doing good deeds, rejecting evil, cleansing the heart, denying the ego etc), as it leads you to this heavenly refreshment.
