TOWARDS THE YOUTH
2- We should believe in the existence of a Director of the world; Who can never create evil, absolutely. Sometimes the Devil makes us feel challenged in front of his temptation and deceptions, but whenever we became victorious over him and achieve a high position in the sight of Allah, we feel happy and delight.
3- We should always look after beneficial things, and indeed we will get it after hard work and precautions. It is said that, whoever strives, gets what he strives for, and whoever plants, can harvest it.
It is possible that an abandoned thing may have a material or non-material benefit. We may use common things in order to create a beneficial tool, or we might be able to use our abandoned time in order to learn an important and beneficial thing. As in the sameway; we can listen to the saying of a child or a common man, and obtain wisdom from it.
It was reported that a blacksmith used to gather wasted minerals in one place, then after some time he would take it to a manufacturing plant for melting, so as to make a cast and sell it. After some time he became rich from this.
4- We should make it a belief that we were blessed with uncountable treasures, our only duty is to extract it to the surface.
In case we didn’t believe in these, we should read the history of the Prophets, pious servants of Allah, intellectual and other reformers, who possessed nothing from this world except treasures of knowledge. They got it from themselves, and they were able to invent and change many things, so that their names remain intact in history.
5- We must always be thinking of construction, not destruction.
If all of us think about construction; we desire to keep working and working till we complete it, but perhaps the following day we had to continue from where we stopped. It is from here that we will feel delight and happiness.
And indeed, this nature was given to us by Almighty Allah. He (man) wanted to see that he had invented something for himself and others, so that his life would be meaningful and beneficial.
But the concept of destruction means we should destroy all the work we did, or what others had done. This is because we envy or are jealous of them. How can any one like this achieve bliss and happiness?
