:: Then where are you going? ::
Look around us, how many people are not muslims?
To be a Muslim is not easy; many reverts have struggled to find the truth and guidance from Allah ta'ala. They have gone through years and years without Islam, and indeed it is painful.
Being Muslims as early as we were born is a fantabolous ni'mah ever!
Okay, let's say a travel agent called and told you that you have won a free return ticket.
"Yeay! a free flight ticket!, but wait a minute ... I've got the ticket, but where am I going?"
This is exactly the same question that we should ask ourselves, "Yeay! I am a Muslim, but what am I supposed to do now? Where am I going?"
Alhamdulillah, Allah azzawajal has given us the perfect travelling planner and map for us to travel safely and happily in this world. Take al-Quran and ahaadeeth with us whenever and wherever we go. InshaAllah we will not lose focus on the exact, straight path that we should take and the exact, recommeded things that we are supposed to do during our short journeys.
Do not lose the 'ticket' for it is the key to get the 'boarding pass' to Jannah.
Do not become too preoccupied with this world for it may make us 'miss' the flight.
