An­swer is not found in worldly things

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Opinion -

WE are pass­ing through month of Ra­madan, a month of fast­ing, sac­ri­fice and ef­forts to be closer to God.

We ob­serve that man has pro­gressed a lot but is un­able to re­duce his anx­i­ety and dis­sat­is­fac­tion.

Some say that if they se­cure a good job they will be sat­is­fied and their anx­i­ety will end.

Oth­ers may think that by mar­ry­ing the love of their life, they will be con­tent.

How­ever, in re­al­ity there is no end to this anx­i­ety. If one gets a moun­tain of gold, one will de­sire for an­other.

There are many who, only for a sound sleep, take drugs and in­jec­tions and some­times lose their lives by it.

Many, who are wealthy, fa­mous and have ev­ery lux­ury that this world can of­fer, use dan­ger­ous drugs for mo­ments of hap­pi­ness.

Is that the cause of this rest­less­ness and what is its cure?

Al­lah says in the Ko­ran that com­fort of hearts is in re­mem­brance of God. There­fore, man can ac­quire real con­tent­ment from God.

By ac­quir­ing knowl­edge of the at­tributes of God, adopting those at­tributes and pray­ing, one can ac­quire cer­tainty, be­cause it is a fact that one can­not build any con­nec­tion with God if he or she is un­cer­tain about His ex­is­tence. Anjum Qaisrani,
