The true test of belief is not a slogan “ALLAHU AKBAR” or dressing up in a certain way, the true test of our belief is living up to the core principle of our religion like not killing innocent people because life is sacred according to Islam. The Quran says whoever slay a soul it shall be as if he had slain all mankind; and whosoever save one life it shall be as if he has saved all mankind.
You are young today, and old tomorrow, then helplessly aged in a few years. What have you invested for your future generation? Not wealth but in terms of values, principles and virtues. What is your legacy , or your contribution to being human and being African…
We have trained our eyes to look out for our next victim of manipulation and coercion, so that we can take advantage of them, and toss to their ignorance! – Yet our fore fathers lived with the virtues for ages, without losing grip of the priceless virtues for posterity.
Over time the human beings have learned the art of destruction in the name of building. We have learnt how to destroy the beautiful free gifts of nature and perfected recreating them to suit individual ownership, so that others can struggle to pay for a pie of nature. Lets look at what is happening to our environments, our ecosystem is under siege.
Take time and watch, and listen to the tunes of the world, try to understand and comprehend the voices of greatness amidst the noises of the starving, the crying and the poor! Open your eyes and see beyond the world challenges, and then shall you see life from the other perspective, that indeed you need to think beyond the cries, the poverty and impoverishment, and start crossing to the other side, where you shall hold other people’s hands and fill their souls with optimism and positivity to keep moving!
We are the seeds of the world. All we need to do is expose ourselves to the right environment. We need to shape our attitude, water ourselves with knowledge , allow ourselves to germinate on strong principles, sustain ourselves with courage to face the strong winds and turbulence, shield ourselves with morals to protect us against predators and dream stealers, spray our young seedlings with persistence, consistence, patience and endurance to remain healthy in our course, and above all , grow strong enough to support all the others around us as they hold unto our branches and stem to reach for and enjoy our sweet fruits.
As we live in this world with high expectations from both within and without, we will face challenges and shortcomings but if you only have one goal, To fulfil the highest, most truthful expression of yourself as a human being, you want to max out your humanity by using your energy to lift yourself up, your family and the people around you.
