I can see them and hear them………….in Dhikr day and night, incessant in their murmurings, unceasing in their ruku and sujood fulfilling what they were designed for.
And me? How do I spend my days and nights? Searching for and attaining what has no significance to the reason I was created. I am rooted with pashaimani.
And yet Allah Subhanawataala places a pot of gold in them and gifts me with the momentary breathtaking beauty of the scene.
Those who remember Allah (always, and in prayers) standing, sitting, and lying down on their sides, and think deeply about the creation of the heavens and the earth, (saying): “Our Lord! You have not created (all) this without purpose, glory to You! (Exalted are You above all that they associate with You as partners). Give us salvation from the torment of the Fire.
( سورة آل عمران , Aal-e-Imran, Chapter #3, Verse #191)
الَّذِينَ يَذْكُرُونَ اللَّهَ قِيَامًا وَقُعُودًا وَعَلَى جُنُوبِهِمْ وَيَتَفَكَّرُونَ فِي خَلْقِ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالْأَرْضِ رَبَّنَا مَا خَلَقْتَ هَـذَا بَاطِلًا سُبْحَانَكَ فَقِنَا عَذَابَ النَّار
Allatheena yathkuroona Allaha qiyaman waquAAoodan waAAala junoobihim wayatafakkaroona fee khalqi alssamawati waalardi rabbana ma khalaqta hatha batilan subhanaka faqina AAathaba alnnari
