“Say, ‘Travel through the land'” September 11, 2007Posted by shadows15 in Gems and Jewels, Weekly Wisdom.
When one travels, many lessons and morals are learned as well as seeing the various things that Allah has created in this world. Travel cleanses the mind, purifies the soul, enlightens the heart and forces one to contemplate the creation of Allah. It also brings happiness to the soul after having been clouded with the dust of the mindless routine of life that one falls into.
Seeing new lands and places, being acquainted with new faces and coming across different languages and colors all add to the thrill and excitement that one gets while traveling. Witnessing the wonders of the world and simply just taking in all the fascinating things that exotic places have to offer provide a sort of paradise on earth to the traveler. The traveler escapes his mindless routine of work and play and escapes into a world of the unknown, where each day is different than the last as he makes his way through the vastness of Allah’s creation.
Things as simple as sitting under the shade of a large tree in the hottest hour of the day instill serenity into the traveler and make his eman go up as he reflects upon the beauty of the creation of Allah. If the worldly life can bring moments of tranquility like this, then how about the gardens of eternity in which a fast rider could not cross the shade of its trees even if he traveled a hundred years in it?
I highly recommend traveling and guarantee that you will come back different; and because of this you will view the world through much more experienced eyes. Your paradigms will shift and your life will now be viewed through newer fresher lenses.
