Shadows

Bismillahi 'r-rahmani 'r-raheem



People are running away from a shadow – a shadow which is themselves, that is why they are ill – and the harder they run, the more their miseries catch up with them. They flee from themselves all their lives in pursuit of a desert mirage that turns out to be nothing but sand. After all that struggle to reach that “Oasis” and to quench their thirst, they find that their struggles and false hopes have only made them more parched and that much closer to death for their efforts.
When they arrive they drink the draught of death and must face a meeting with their Lord for which they are unprepared. This is the fate of those who waste away their lives in vain amusement.
The main goal of Islam and of Sufi Paths, especially the Naqshbandi Path, is to bring people back to themselves, to teach them to stop fleeing from their own shadows and to stop chasing a mirage.

A-a-h-hh ... Maulana and his deeply, frighteningly true words. Who will listen, and, of those that do, who will do something about them?
