why we say “Khuda Hafiz” before leaving our house or any place?
Khuda Hafiz means God Protect You, If it is true then why people die in car accidents or have natural deaths even after saying Khuda Hafiz?
They say “Our lives belongs to God” and we can’t question because desi myth “Allah jo karta hai, achay k liye karta hai”.
Physically, mentally, emotionally or financially we all are different, different in all aspects. What’s good for me isn’t necessarily good for you as well or vice versa, maybe your perception of ‘Good’ isn’t really ‘Good’ for me.
Allah, the Almighty says, which means,
“And it may be that you dislike a thing which is good for you and that you like a thing which is bad for you. Allah knows but you do not know.” (AI-Baqarah, 2:216)
How can I know what’s good or bad for me if you won’t let me try it?
And I (Allah) created not the jinns and humans except they should worship Me (Alone).”“
Life is the most beautiful yet the most terrible thing one could ask for. If you’re going to ask 100 people ‘Do they wanna continue living or die?’ I can surely say 85% will desperately say ‘Die’, Now you can judge how terrible it is.
“Lucky are those who are dead”
We born without our choice, in a family we didn’t choose, in a country we didn’t want, as a person we never dreamt of. Life is a series of breathtaking struggle, a series of awkward moments, a series of terrible experiences, a series of disasters. Everyday we wake up with a new regret, a new guilt or a new tragedy, Everyone gets insulted everyday. We suffer, suffer to death. We bear all this pain just because God created us (without our wish) to worship him? tell me it isn’t selfish, I can already hear Na’uzubillahs.
But Allah is your protector, and He is the best of helpers. (Surah Ali ‘Imran 3:150)
What we call the people who leaves us in our tough times? We all go through tough times and that’s when we get to see the real faces of everyone. Many people leave, many stay. The one who stays holds a special place in our hearts. We get many advices on how to get through tough times? the most common or most preferred among them is ‘Astaghfirullah’ or you can say ‘Astaghfirullah parho Allah behtar kare ga.’ Astaghfirullah means Forgive me Allah, Forgive me for something I’ve no idea of or for the life I never wanted or for the things I didn’t choice for me or for the things you chose for me. To be very honest, as a muslim in our tough times our first priority is offering Namaz or praying to God and to your utter disappointment the first one to disappoint us is no one but God.
Lastly, I would like to share something with you all so here you go.
Recently, In my office we got a new peon. We (me and my team members) were little scared of him as he resembles taliban in appearance tbh so for the safe side we decided to ask him few questions and the conversation begins.
He told us his name, he’s sixteen years old and he’s the eldest of all ( Y’all will think about the child labour but mate read the whole article first). We told him that he’s very young and it’s illegal to work at the age of 16. He said his father is a cancer patient and it’s been a year now his family is in a terrible situation, they need him. We asked him how many siblings does he have? eight, He said and to your utter disappointment he said the youngest one is one month old, we were all shocked. one of my team member said unintentionally ‘but you said your father is ill?’ he was pissed! and then before leaving for Namaz he said to us, Our prophet (SAWW) said No to a man who wanted to marry a woman who doesn’t bear children and said:
“Marry those who are loving and fertile, for I will be proud of your great numbers before the other nations.”
From his point of view his father isn’t wrong, He’s a religious person who is following his religion but we all know how harmful and risky it is to have sex during cancer treatment. The children may born with a faulty gene it’s like putting your child life at risk but who can explain this to them? for them it’s sunnah. Many of you will say that this isn’t God’s fault or this isn’t islam or they took it in a wrong way but mates! Islam is for EVERYONE poor, needy, greedy, literate, illiterate or anyone if they are not educated enough to understand it completely God must have provided them another to get through it because it’s the God who has given them this life.
Before saying Na’uzubillahs, think again don’t you think I’m right? You don’t have guts to accept the reality, I know because the same fear Allah naraz hojaega aur humari Narazgi ka kya? woh behisaab hai.
