Yearn to Meet Allah. As moslem, we realize that our life is not as free as non-moslem do. We cannot do as freely as we want. There are rules of Allah that they should be done.
Our Prophet Muhammad (Shallallahu`alaihi Wa Sallam) said: “The world is a prison for a believer and Paradise for a non-believer.” [HR. Muslim]
A believer is ever mindful of Allah (Subhanahu wa Ta’ala). Therefore, he/she is not free to do what they please. They cannot wait to get to Jannah where they will have no restrictions of any kind, no suffering, no sacrifice, and no separation from their loved ones. That is why this world feels like a prison to them. Those believers who are even more cognizant of Allah (subhana wa ta’ala) are in even more pain because of their separation from Him.
A lover always yearns to join his Beloved (Subhanahu wa Ta’ala). This is the sole thought occupying his or her mind.
Below is a poem of me as a lover of Allah (Subhanahu wa Ta’ala).
