We all know that. But do you ever wonder how much more longer do I have to do this for?
How long will you be tweaking and adjusting your life for optimal health? How long will you be adjusting to the highs and lows of iman? How many more years do you have to consciously keep investing in your marriage? How many more years of commitment everyday to the person you love?
Will you ever get to the point where things ‘just happen’ and you don’t have to put in the effort any more?
When you’ve spent years on your personal growth and spiritual development, life will become much more smoother and abundant for you. Things will flow and you’ll feel divine support from Allah shaping your life exactly the way it supposed to be but the grind will never end.
Every. Single. Day.
Till your last hour on earth.
The pursuit of happiness, peace and unconditional love will never end. There will always be something to work on – spiritually, mentally, physically.
Your work on this earth will only transpire, when you transpire.
You’ll never get to the point of feeling that you’re done with life. That you’ve made it and that there’s no more bridges to cross and mountains to climb. Besides, how boring would that be?
Imam Ahmed was asked by him son Abdullah “Father, when will we ever relax?” His response was “With the first step we take into Jannah.”
