Darkness to Light
Days have past, the same sun rises every day but the days have got darker. Emission has increased even furthering global warming; the effluvium of hate, indifference and retribution is more profound. Ozone layer is depleting more harmful radiation invariably entering the atmosphere, there is definite damage done but more damage has been inflicted on humanity by the rays of scorn, mistrust and contempt.
Long time ago in a place not so far away the dying father would advice his son “carry on the battle with so and so tribe, as three generations before they had killed one of our family” and to even such an extend that “their camel ate from our plantations without our permission”. But then things changed for good, the warring tribes began to realize the value of humanity, the world as a place for test for excellence in attributes, that killing a single person is equivalent to killing the entire humanity, and there is a single chance to prove you worthy for this world and the hereafter.
There is always light if you believe, the days would turn brighter by the day as you emerge from the darkness to the light. The condition is strong belief as the way is tough with bundle of struggles; the way is to forgive others dues on you and to pay dues you have on others. Forgive what friends have to give you, find out and deliver what you owe to them. Forgive what your neighbor has to give you, find out and deliver what you owe to them. Forgive what your relatives have to give you, find out and deliver what you owe to them.
What you would get in return is immaterial, but what matters is have you done the right thing as the final judgment is made by the one who sent us here to this world. When he is pleased then world would change. Prophet Moses (peace be on him) asked him how do we know when you are pleased with us and how do we know when you are angry. He replied “when I am pleased with you, I give power to those people who are just; I make rains fall at the right time so that crops can grow and I give wealth to the beneficent so that they give to the poor. When I am angry with you I give power to the oppressors, make rains fall to ruin crops, give wealth to the misers who collect it for their selfish ends”. So let’s believe and do the right things, so that the one who brings the changes be pleased with us and bring us better days.
