Have you ever heard of the poem which was written by the one of the most prolific and influential writer ever in world history? It started with this verse. (To-morrow, and to-morrow, and to-morrow)
I remember that many of us had been familiar with this poem. I, myself, pretty much would love to bring all of you –readers, to reflect for a second or two, about this poem, and take the lessons provided from this wonderful and exciting poem.
First and foremost, us, going to be Muslim doctors should be able to lead the life apart from the horrible and disastrous life as told from this poem; The way to dusty death, Life’s but a walking shadow.
As a Muslim, we should strive to the fullest and bring the best from us! No matter how deep is the sea, we should dive and explore it, no matter how high the mountain is, we should climb and conquer it, no matter how tough and hard the day is, find the best way to unlock the riddle and mystery behind it, then triumph the day as a Muslim warrior.
The world is like a grand staircase, some are going up and some are going down . – Samuel Johnson.
We will ever be a part of it, but REMEMBER! Allah knows the best for us. He knows us better than we know ourselves.”… But perhaps you hate a thing and it is good for you; and perhaps you love a thing and it is bad for you. And Allah Knows, while you know not.” 2:216
Somehow, it can be arduous and laboring for us to do a nice thing, while it is very tempting, appealing and alluring to become a devil’s servant. Or, in other words, to do evil and wicked affairs.
Well, I would like to share you this thought. The thought that we are dying for every time passing by. We will eventually meet ALLAH’s the almighty. We will even be judged for each and every single thing we had done in this mortal world. Can you do bad things at the thought that your Creator is observing you and you will be punished dearly for your actions?
Let us revive the glory of Islam! To do that, we must first start with ourselves. As the saying goes, “if you want to change the world, start with yourself.” Caitlin Flaherty.
“Be the change you wish to see in the world.” Mahatma Gandhi. If you change yourself you will change your world. If you change how you think then you will change how you feel and what actions you take. And so the world around you will change. Not only because you are now viewing your environment through new lenses of thoughts and emotions but also because the change within can allow you to take action in ways you wouldn’t have – or maybe even have thought about – while stuck in your old thought patterns.
