Allah Almighty announces. Every soul (person) is bound to taste death, and We try you through the bad and the good things (of life) by way of testing (so that your real character and rank may reveal itself). In fact, you are on the way to return to Us, (to finally be brought to Our Presence). (Al-Anbiya Surah, 21:35)

The world is a realm of testing. In a hadith, the world is presented as the field of the Hereafter.

This world was created as a realm of testing and a field of the Hereafter, not as a place of pleasure. In this testing field, men continuously endeavor and work hard. Again here they arrange a vineyard for the Hereafter and finish their days exhausted.

Man who works in the field is contented with a piece of bread and yoghurt instead of portions of foods, lies on the soil or grasses and has some rest. He would not deem them strange. And he is not disturbed by them. He does know that he will get back to his village and find his welfare and ease of mind there.

The Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) announces, There is no comfort on earth.
It is by no means possible to obtain tranquility and welfare in this strange world in which day and night chase each other, diseases and health are visited on man in turn, storms and stillness prevail over human soul in succession.

There is no comfort on earth but is bliss for believers. If man has tasted of faith and taken the way of good deeds in this world, he acquires some sorts of benefits on behalf of the Hereafter. And most importantly, he tastes the comfort of knowing that the world is not a place of comfort and he gets rid of discomfort.

Our surroundings are swarming with incidents that all the time interprets this hadith.

On the one hand, the killers of faith who keep struggling to put man into a wretched position, enemies of chastity, to make it short evil networks Pubs, which are marketing poison, gambling houses with filthy air, fashion networks, which are hostile to modesty, novels, and stories that stimulate young brains into corruption And obscene scenes that appear on the screens of televisions all over the world, which gnaw at souls Heart-rendering news, which inoculate despair into the hearts Never-ending fights, murders, traffic accidents The slanders that never fail to be missing in the arena of politics, defamations, lies, back-biting

On the other hand ruined families, which have lost their means of respect and love Corrupting common usages and figures of expenses that swell up with extravagance. Sleep-spoiling payments.

And wretched, destitute and ephemeral man in the face of these so many material and spiritual distresses which are conducted by human hands and make some people troublesome for some others

This picture is a most clear indicator showing the human heart would not be satisfied with the world and is a pioneer of guidance which turns the attention of man into another realm.

Indeed, there is no comfort on earth. For the essence of this field of testing is not proper for this. There is no comfort in the testing. You cannot observe an unending spring in the inner world of man as in our surrounding. S/he also has winter, summer, and autumn.

S/he does not always have calm weather; s/he has a flash of lightning, storm, and hurricane. You cannot see him/her lit up all the time; s/he also has darkness, shadows, and clouds. His/her crops are not all the time of the same sort; s/he has flowers, fruits, and thorns. His/her field is not always even, s/he has mountains, cliffs, brooks.

As long as we are firmly convinced that this is so, our standpoints towards the occurrences will change, we shall substantially have delivered ourselves from untimely sorrows, excitements, gloom.

All this is a witness that there is no comfort on earth.
However, one needs not to confuse comfort with bliss. There is no comfort on earth but are welfare and bliss. These concepts look to souls not to bodies. As for soul, it finds welfare and becomes blissful both in this world and in the Hereafter through faith, good deeds, righteousness, and good conduct.

People who use their every feeling and emotion on the right path experience a sort of paradise-like life on earth.

“Life is toil…Hayat sıkıntı çekmektir.”

Life is toil.

Don’t grieve over the vicissitudes of your existence: you cannot escape hardship.

Life, for the most part, involves work and responsibilities.

Happiness is an exception or only a fleeting phase that comes and goes sporadically. You long for this life, yet Allah does not want it to be a permanent abode for His righteous slaves.

lf this world were not a place of trial, it would have been free from disease and hardship; it would have been a comfortable abode for the best of men —- the Messengers and Prophets. Adam faced difficulties and troubles until the day he left this world. Nooh’s (Noah) own people scoffed and ridiculed him. lbraheem (Abraham) was tested by the fire and by the command of slaughtering his son. Ya’qoob (Jacob) was separated from his son and wept until he lost his sight. Moosa (Moses) endured the tyranny of Firaun and afterwards the disobedience of his own people. Eesa (Jesus) was poor (may peace be upon them). Muhammad (pbuh) patiently endured poverty and the impudence of his people, and he poignantly felt the loss of one of his favourite uncles — Hamza (may Allah be pleased with him). The Prophet (pbuh) said:

“This world is a prison for the believer and a paradise for the disbeliever.”

And in a literal sense, there are countless examples of the righteous, the scholars, and the truthful being imprisoned for their beliefs.

A child in the womb of his mother has a mouth, eyes, ears, hands and feet. All of his organs and equipments are bestowed completely. However, none of them is needed in that womb. The baby is fed by means of a funiculus him to his mother.

Now if that child said:

O my Lord! This funiculus is enough for me. There is no need for this mouth, these eyes, ears, hands and feet. They do not serve any purpose.,

Doubtless, he would be replied by Allah as follows:

Do not rush my servant and do not interfere with what you do not comprehend. After a short while, you are going to enter such a world that this hose which you define as everything for me is going to fit nothing and so it is going to be cut off. The mouth, eyes, ears and similar organs which you consider as useless are going to be the most important equipments for you.

If that child did not believe those truths and came into this world as a denier and saw that the midwife cut off his funiculus and threw it into the trash box and realized that the mouth, eyes and similar organs, which he assumed to be useless, started to function and that he could not exist without them, would that child be ashamed or not; would he feel very sorry because he did not believe what Allah said or not?

Currently, we are in the womb of a mother just like that child and are going to enter another world in 9 months, 9 years or in 90 years. The name of that world is the Hereafter. Now, we are connected to our world mother with material hoses and with our stomachs.

If we said:

O our Lord! We spend our lives well. What is the use of Prayers, fasting, pilgrimage, zakat (alms), religion, belief and Islam?,
We would definitely be replied by our Sustainer as follows:

O my servants! You are going to leave this world in a short while. You are going to be taken to such a world that these material hoses which you define as everything for us is going to fit nothing. Prayers like worship, alms (zakat) and pilgrimage which you consider as useless are going to be the most important assets for you. People are not going to be respected in accordance with their cars, money or properties but with their hearts, deeds and prayers.

That is to say, your performed prayers, zakats, fasting, prayers, pilgrimage, good deeds will be everything for you in the Hereafter. They are going to become hands, feet, tongues, lips, villas, pools, bonds and patents, planes, limitless wealth, felicity and briefly, they will become Paradise.

If we behaved arrogantly, spoiled on account of being in the age of science and technology, did not affirm the truths which our Lord commanded by the tongue of wisdom and then went to Hereafter as being worshipless lazy people or deniers and if we witnessed the truth as our Lord informed before, would we not become ashamed? Verily, would we not feel embarrassed like that child, who considered the mouth as useless in his mothers womb when we witnessed our funiculi which we regarded as everything; that is to say, our cars, apartments, money and assets had no importance; contrarily, prayers meant everything in that world?
Would we not feel very sorry? Would we not say If only we had believed, performed our prayers, fasted, given religious taxes completely, lived for the sake of Allah, spent our lives on the path of that unique glorious Prophet Muhammad (Peace and blessing be upon him)?

Come to your senses before that day on which you would feel deeply sorry

Anne karnındaki bir çocuğun ağzı vardır, gözü vardır, kulağı vardır, eli vardır, ayağı vardır. Bütün aza ve cihazatı tam tekmil verilmiştir. Halbuki bunların hiçbirine orada lüzum yoktur. Orada çocuk, gıdasını, göbeğinden annesine bağlı bir hortumla almaktadır.

Simdi bu çocuk:

-Ya Rabbi! dese, su hortum bana yetmektedir. Pekiyi şu ağza, şu göze, şu kulağa, şu ele, şu ayağa ne lüzum vardı. Hiçbir işe yaramamaktadırlar?

Herhalde ALLAH’dan şöyle bir cevap alacağı muhakkak:

– “Acele etme kulum, aklın almadığı şeye de burnunu sokma. Sen kısa bir müddet sonra öyle bir âleme gideceksin ki burada ‘her şeyim’ dediğin hortum, orada hiçbir şeye yaramayacak, kesilip atılacak. Lüzumsuz sandığın ağız, göz, kulak gibi şeylerde en lüzumlu cihaz durumuna geçecek.”

O çocuk bu gerçeklere inanmasa ve bir inkârcı olarak dünyaya gelse hakikaten hortumun işe yaramadığını, ebenin onu kesip kaldırıp attığını; lüzumsuz sandığı ağız, göz gibi cihazların devreye girdiğini, onlarsız olunmayacağını görse utanır mı, utanmaz mı? İnanmadığı için dizlerini döver mi, dövmez mi?

Şu anda bizde, tıpkı o çocuk gibi bir ananın karnındayız. 9 ay, 9 sene veya 90 sene sonra bir başka dünyaya doğacağız. O dünyanın adı ahiret. Biz şu anda dünya anamıza maddi hortumlarla, midemiz ile bağlı durumdayız.

Eğer biz:

-“İşte geçinip gidiyoruz. Ya Rabbi! Şu Namaza, oruca, hacca, zekâta, dine, imana, İslam’a ne lüzum vardı?” Dersek Rabbimizden söyle bir cevap alacağımız muhakkak!

– “Ey kullarım! Kısa bir müddet sonra bu dünyadan çıkacaksınız. Öyle bir âleme götürüleceksiniz ki orada ‘her şeyim’ dediğiniz bu maddi hortumların hiçbiri işe yaramayacak. Lüzumsuz sandığınız namaz gibi, zekât gibi, hac gibi ibadetler de en lüzumlu şeyler durumuna geçecek. Orada insanlara arabasına, parasına, servetine ve suretine göre değil; kalbine ameline ve ibadetine, namazına göre değer verilecek.

Yani namazınız, zekâtınız, orucunuz, haccınız, hayır hasenatınız, ahirette sizin için her şey olacak. El olacak, ayak olacak, dil olacak, dudak olacak, villa olacak, havuz olacak, senet olacak, berat olacak, uçak olacak, sonu olmayan zenginlik ve saadet olacak kısaca Cennet olacak.

Eğer biz bilgiçlik eder, fen ve teknik asrında olduğumuzla şımarır, Rabbimizin hikmet lisanıyla buyurduğu bu gerçekleri kabul etmez, ibadetsiz bir tembel veya bir inkârcı olarak ahirete gider, gerçekleri görürsek utanmaz mıyız? Hakikaten her şeyim dediğimiz hortumlarımızın, yani arabamızın, apartmanımızın, paramızın, pulumuzun hiçbir işe yaramadığını müşahede ederek, ibadetlerin her şey olduğunu anlasak o anne karnında ağzı lüzumsuz gören çocuk gibi mahcup olmaz mıyız? Dizlerimizi dövmez miyiz? Keşke inansaydık, keşke namazımızı kılsaydık, orucumuzu tutsaydık, zekatımızı tam verseydik, ALLAH için yasasaydık, eşsiz insan şanlı Peygamber Hz. Muhammed ( s.a.v)’in yolunda yürüseydik demez miyiz?

Pişman olacağın, dizlerini döveceğin o gün gelmeden aklını başına al…

Ten advises from a physician to cure the diseases of the heart…Kalbin hastalıklarını tedavi etmek için bir doktordan on tavsiye.

Al-Hasan al-Basri said, “One day I was walking with a young pious man in the narrow streets of Basra and its markets until we reached a physician sitting on a chair and around him were many men, women, and children who had bottles of water in their hands. Each one of them was seeking a cure for his illness.

The young man moved closer to the physician and asked him, ‘O physician! Do you have a medicine that cleans away sins and cures the [spiritual] diseases of the heart?

He replied ‘Yes!’

The young man said, ‘Give it to me!”

The physician said,

“Take ten things from me – take the roots of the tree of poverty with the roots of the tree of humility, and pour in it the milk of repentance, then place it in the mortar of acceptance [of whatever is predestined for one], crush it with the pestle of contentment, then place it in the pot of piety, pour over it the water of shame, then boil it with the fire of love, then place it in the cup of gratitude and cool it down with the fan of hope, then drink it with the spoon of praise.

If you do all of this then it will cure you of every illness and trial in this world and in the Hereafter.’

[Preparing For The Day Of Judgement By: Imaam Ibn Hajar Al‘ Asqalani, page 42]

Hasan-ı Basri buyurdu; Genç bir abid ile beraber Basra’nın Sokak ve çarşılarında gezerken karşımıza bir tabib çıktı. Bir kürsüye oturmuştu. Yanında erkek, kadın, çocuk birçok kişi vardı. Herkes elinde su dolu bir kap tutuyor, hastalığına deva olacak ilaç soruyorlardı.

Yanındaki genç de ileri atılarak tabibe dedi. Ey tabib! Yanında günahları yıkayan ve kalp hastalıklarına şifa veren bir ilaç var mı ?

Tabib: Var,deyince

genç: Getir, dedi. Bunun üzerine tabib şunları söyledi:

Benden şu on şeyi al: Fakirlik ağacının köklerini. Tevazu ağacının kökleriyle birlikte al. İçine tevbe eriğini koy. Rıza havanına at. Kanaat tokmağı ile döv. Takva tenceresine boşalt. Üzerine hayâ suyunu dök. Muhabbet ateşi ile kaynat. Şükür bardağına dök. Ümit yelpazesi ile soğut. Ham kaşığı ile iç.

Bu söylediklerimi yaparsan, dünya ve Ahiret hastalık ve musibetlerine karşı sana faydalı olur.

If one day you feel like crying, call me. I don’t promise that I will make you laugh, but I can cry with you. If one day you want to run away, don’t be afraid to call me. I don’t promise to ask you to stop, but I can run with you. If one day you don’t want to listen to anyone, call me. I promise to be there for you, but I also promise to remain quiet. But if one day you call, and there is no answer, come fast to see me.
Perhaps I need you.”

Eğer bir gün ağlar gibi hissedersen, beni ara. Seni güldürmeye söz veremem, ama seninle ağlayabilirim. Eğer bir gün uzağa kaçmak istersen, beni çağırmaktan korkma durmanı istemek için söz veremem, ama seninle kaçabilirim. Eğer bir gün hiç kimseyi dinlemek istemezsen, ara beni. Senin için orada olmaya ve çok sessiz olmaya söz veriyorum. Ama eğer bir gün sen çağırırsan ve hiçbir cevap yoksa, beni görmeye çabuk gel.
Muhtemelen sana ihtiyacım var.”
