Alice: Which way shall I go?
Cat: That depends on where you are going.
Alice: I don’t know where I’m going!
Cat: Then it doesn’t matter which way you go!
So do you know where you are going?
Today, with no destination in mind people are being led up dead-ends by the advertising industry. Once they reach the dead end they look around, dazed and confused – like those who have clouds upon clouds of darkness – and then guidance comes from another advertisement that tells them that happiness lies around the corner: they just need to drink another coke! What rubbish.
We have stopped looking at the life of our Prophet and that of his noble companions for guidance. True guidance waits for us, true happiness waits for us and a life with a higher meaning; and a nobler end for the human race. Why will you not think?? Why do you let corporations lead you astray – to a life of meaninglessness? When the end comes, exhausted and spent, in a moment of clarity you see the ugliness of the meaningless life you have lived and a feeling of absolute loss gets hold of you. You have time, use your intellect and see life the way it is; ignore the false promises of happiness through having material stuff.
Allah says: “By time! Surely the human being is at loss. Except for those who have faith and do righteous deeds and exhort one another to truth and exhort one another to patience.” [Sûrah al-`Asr]
