It's very peaceful to have grounding. Otherwise there is no purpose. Whatever direction you go, where is the purpose? There has to be a purpose in the heart. People try to fill that purpose with whatever they want but it can only be filled with one thing. Otherwise there will be emptiness.
That's why people take drugs to fill the void. Or follow their passions.
There is no harm in taking interest in something as we all have some gift or talent and need them to survive.
But my point is there is something higher, that put all these things here. If there is no connection to that then what's the point in anything someone does? Just for survival? We are greater creatures than animals.
Fish deep in the ocean maybe have no idea of what is beyond their living space.
If you take the journey to know your creator maybe you will come across a wonderful reality you didn't know existed.
He sent prophet after prophet for thousands of years calling to the one truth and reason for existence which is that everyone's purpose is to simply worship him in trade for an everlasting bliss. Worship includes good deeds. But he decides what is good and bad.
It might take time to accept that because it's a journey.
I'm convinced. I've journeyed into this religion and only seen truth. You will see shallow observations by people but that's because they haven't spent time to reflect and think and observe so the truth can be seen. Most of them don't even know the ancient classic Arabic of this religion. Vision is not just with the eyes. It's also with the heart. Every traveller who has seen something and has conviction and doesn't ask for money, it wouldn't be of any benefit to call anyone to a lie.
Everything of quality has time built into it. If you spend the time you'll get a quality impression and understanding of this religion. It's the last religion to be revealed by God.
There are prophecies that have come true such as people competing to build higher buildings. That is one of the signs of the end of the world. When you read these things it adds to conviction.
This life is a test. We weren't here aimless. And Islam has beautiful gems you will come to know if you spend time with it. The Quran is emotionally charged counsel. It definitely calms my racing thoughts instantly and can't be compared to anything else in regard to depression. I say this confidently.
I've traveled deep and seen. As have many other people.
I'm just inviting.
I'll end with this.
The second surah of the Holy Quran starts with this:
No one has ever known what it means. But some scholars have simply stated that it teaches us that we don't know everything. It's like a lesson. We have to know our place.
Don't let the immediate rebellion of Shaytaan (Satan) get defensive when reading this post. Let that cool off and maybe you'll learn something amazing.
