AN IDENTITY

0

    Being a Muslim is my identity, and TO BE.
    Certainly and very proudly. Really it is?

    Let me upfront this reality very pungently, point wise:

    If, I am intimidated by the world around for pity things, the love of worldly affairs hold me so tight that I couldn’t let them go emotionally, psychologically or physically, the captioned subject challenged me so hardly that I cannot face mirror and my conscience pricks.

    If, I am weakened myself only because, I faced hardships, where I born/among my family and social interaction. Society has its own marks and paths and they deny to accept anyone who is bit unique to state his/her ideas, norms or challenged their set patterns which may be hurt their false super ego. This is only when society fabricates, the actions they intentionally or unintentionally following, according to their designed structure.

    If, the imitation (Taqlid) of a perfect or Divine is so complicated, where one is even questioned for the spirit he/she holds or blessed, because the outer course differs it. When the religious doctrine among people yet they hive to adding more according to their will to sooth.

    If, independent reasoning (Ijtihad) is vulnerable, because the court and judiciary are not that capable to see in the light of Divine, direct and righteous path. Since their wisdom is prejudiced, seized and damaged by the evil they are cherishing.

    Thousands of years been passed and Man came up to this level that existing period though offering so many choices/favors yet it is most puzzling/confusing. This millennium’s compass invented many directions yet forgot the focal one. Naturally, when any state touched an optimum level it will have the decline too. Hence, the universal law is based on antithetical on scale; it has variance and variance of importance.

    Such divergence creates its existence of interaction, as independent or individual level and on the consolidated level to some extent. Light is needed, it is important so does the darkness as well. Now light associated with an expression of motivation yet darkness symbolized as shady as it could. Constant, only light also be unacceptable, so that the darkness. Hence, each has importance in accordance to the need, course and as designed by Divine.

    It is not necessary, that one decision is always correct for everyone, it varies.
    Hence, this should be picked wisely that where the imitation is required and where the reasoning is required. Copying the perfection, is an ardent act for human.

    It is said nothing is perfect in this world. Wrong statement. How?
    Following three statements are clear to define

    The Creator said, if you see the skies, your glance will be reverted back and you can’t find an error in our creation. In addition, The Holy Quran is a miracle and this Divine book says the unsaid. It encodes what was coded. Again, The Holy Prophet (PBUH), the last Prophet and Blessing for All the Worlds. Consequently: Creator and the Creation, Divine and Doctrine AND Blessings and Blessed.
    The central point is, I born in a Muslim home, is this my credit?
    Of course, this is my Fate.

    Now staying Muslim, even practicing and keep tracking myself as Muslim, is my effort.
    It’s uncertain that, I would stay the same, develop or even go astray.

    We are surviving in 21st Century, yet it is so difficult to hold an identity which is exact and clear. The panorama or the living structure/introduction goes:

    I am a Human (Existence as a creation)
    As a Human, I am a Female (Category of survival/sex)
    Being a Female, I am a Muslim and has a Name (Belief and with standing)
    Being a Muslim, I live in a Muslim State, which has a constitution (Ideology/Nationality)
    How learned I am and what I do/own (Character/Profile)

    In my case, all above are given.
    My existence, sex, belief/religion and ideology. For me above all 4 are my fate. However, there are many people who struggle for last two points and they stand so far nowhere.

    Now if, I have been cursed/envied/wronged for being what I have not chosen myself, it’s really complicated to understand. I have been accused or so many hypocrites watched and criticized me for what I am.

    Why we have to prove ourselves as we are? We exist/ breathe by the Will of God, He is the One who determines our Fates, then who are those who interfere, envied and want us to be harmed and killed. Who are they?

    They are the trial & error part of our Fate. The people who actually provide you tough time, they provide you opportunity to be strong and grow more. If they are causing damages to you, they are actually making life sour for themselves.

    Our identity is not the one the people define but truly the one GOD, determines.
    Whatever God bestowed, it is favorable even though apparently, it seems destructive. At first place one should be believer and next stick to the ideology belongs to it.

    I believe in ONE Creator, who is Kind and Merciful.
    My ideology even based on Divine, and I try imitate the perfection performed by Last Prophet PBUH. This set my road very clear and sound, hence there is no other need to contradict any of the affairs, either effective for worldly or hereafter.

    Yes, my identity is not only my name.
    It has other important elements too, the core is the one which defines my spirit/soul to be addressed here and hereafter. So I need no search/effort to select any other belief/religion as the one given to me, is complete doctrine, it is not left empty anywhere about any topic of life.

    Universal life is full of deception, it’s tough though sometimes to determine the reality/pathway to reach the goal. As a result the guidance is in the shape of religion. No religion provoke any human to any ill, however the previous religions are for the course of time.

    Islam is till End.
    Even Muslims are corrupted, even they follow secular teachings, and even they are not practicing what taught to them. Even though, it does not meant that the doctrine been changed. It’s not.

    My identity is my realization
    The day, I realized the meaning of truth/lie, life/death, goal/achievement and the real success. I knew that I need to associate every object/ molecule to my Creator to have His guidance. The soul who identify his/her given Fate, trial-error and destiny, is the one cherish the self-esteem.

    I knew my identity
    Around me, there are so many who knew not, they are black out in such Era. Whereas they are so called Muslims. I cannot predict future, nor do I have a desire to do so. I exist to breathe and to understand, if I could a little, I believe I done my part.

    If I knew myself and my clear identity, I knew my Creator.
    And knowing my Creator is not enough, there is a need to be linked up, to be connected.
    Strive to think and thinking up to wisdom, I am sure can badge me.

    In the hour of trial/effort, let’s try to be connected with Creator.
    Speak less, avoid crowd ……… Listen what Nature says. Everyone should have his/her identity first, than practice and scale it.

    I can adopt what I like, staying in line. Going out of boundary, is a wrong selection then this is self-harming. If harming others is wrong-forbidden then equally self-harming is also destructive/evil.

    We are not fighting issues/plagues but ourselves.
    Acting one thing than navigating it. Be constant-be faithful, this is the only way of redemption.
