This world is nothing just an illusion. This world is like a dream we see everyday. One day we will wake up from it and then we will know that each and every thing and people who are in any way related to us are nothing but fake things which are with us to pass our dream’s time and for our exam. Each and everything is our exam whether God is blessing us or depriving us of things. In every hurdle and smooth road we are being examined by God.
The judgment day is the real day in which our eyes will open, where all our deeds of this dream would get their rewards or punishments. At that day no person of this dream will recognize us. Leaders, friends and even enemies are not closer than your parents. At this day even the closest relation of father and son won’t matter. When the son is punished, father would not come to rescue him. Even the son, whose father sacrificed whole life to bring him up, would not go and ask to transfer his father’s sin to his. In this type of situation when father and son would refuse to recognize each other, what can you expect from someone else to help?
“O mankind! Fear your Lord, and fear the Day in which no father will benefit his child; nor will any good child be of any benefit to the father; indeed Allah’s promise is true; so never may the worldly life deceive you; and never may the great cheat deceive you in respect of Allah’s commands. Al- Quran (31:33)”
On that day, everyone will try to escape, where no one will ever be able to escape. So, that person who ruins his life after death for the people living in this temporary world or who chooses the wrong path following the world is innocent or idiot.
“And if they contend with you that you should associate with Me what you have no knowledge of, do not obey them, and keep company with them in this world kindly, and follow the way of him who turns to Me, then to Me is your return, then will I inform you of what you did—Al- Quran- (31:15) “
In these verses, Allah (SWT) clearly suggested the children to obey the parents and treat them with kindness for the worldly affairs but not to obey their parents if they ask you to divert from the religion or ask you to do anything that is against the laws and rules of Islam.
We are unaware of our deaths. We are not afraid of the day when our nama-e-amal will be presented before Allah. This life has indulged us in many misunderstandings; some think that every breath is to be taken in this world so whatever one want to do, do it here. Others are so much busy in collecting money and spending it that they forget that one day they all will be buried deep in the ground without even one penny in their Coffin.
A person is not born in this world to enjoy and to do whatever he wishes to do but this world exists to do hard work and to tolerate the hurdles and obstacles which come between the ways to achieve the desired goal i.e. to follow teachings of Islam. Every night while you dream, you see many achievements and many downfalls, you also see some scenes which you refuse to see again after you wake up and there are also many situations which you wish to change in your dream. Like movie “Inception”, You are living dream in a dream. And one day you will wake up regretting the ending of this dream.
Quran has explained the dream world and the world’s existence in some words which are more than enough to conclude this article.
“ Verily the likeness of (this) worldly life is as the water (rain) which We send down from the sky, so by it arises the intermingled produce of the earth of which men and cattle eat until when the earth is clad with its adornments and is beautified, and its people think that they have all the powers of disposal over it, Our Command reaches it by night or by day and We make it like a clean-mown harvest, as if it had not flourished yesterday! Thus do We explain the Ayat (proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, laws, etc.) in detail for the people who reflect. “ Al- Quran (10:24)
