Alas! After pondering on what does it mean to have a peace of heart, here I’ve arrived to find the true home of peace, the home of eternal bliss and tranquility!
Mankind today is in constant toil. Everywhere there is corruption. Everywhere is some form of oppression. Even if there isn’t, his heart is constantly worried about something or the other; money, health, status, children, love, parents, work, and what not.
It is in the nature of ourselves that we strive to attain peace. We want to live a peaceful life, bereft of worries and anguish. Imagine then, Allah سبحانه وتعالى, the Maker of Peace, calling us to the Home of peace!
وَاللَّهُ يَدْعُو إِلَىٰ دَارِ السَّلَامِ وَيَهْدِي مَن يَشَاءُ إِلَىٰ صِرَاطٍ مُّسْتَقِيمٍ
“And Allah invites to the Home of Peace and guides whom He wills to a straight path.” [Surah Yunus, verse 25]
Allah سبحانه وتعالى calls and invites us to something that we cannot buy/find in this world; The home of peace: Meaning Jannah. Jannah is called ‘darusalaam’ because that is the place where one will truly be at peace. In contrary to this Dunya where we are always worried.
‘Come! and live in DaruSalaam! Where you will have no worries and no troubles and no fear. There will be no fear of the decline of blessings. There will be nothing less!’
Why are you happy with less? With this fleeting Dunya which only makes us sad and upset? Have a higher goal! A higher purpose! Desire for more- The home of peace that Allah SWT is calling you towards.
And how can we get there?
By going on the straight path. The one who gives himself to Allah سبحانه وتعالى.
No matter how much we have in this dunya, we can never ever be in ultimate peace. Because the home of the hereafter is the real home- the home of peace.
And you know what’s beautiful? Allah سبحانه وتعالى is calling every one of us– (Wallahu yad’oo) It’s an open invitation!❤ :’)
