I travel, I party, I netflix and I feel happiness, but at the end of the day why do I feel emptiness and feel bored even after all that?
We fill our stomachs everyday with nourishing food, so that our body keeps going and doesn’t fall sick, but we must remember we all have a soul and that soul needs nourishment too. Fun and enjoyment that is against Islamic practices will only act as drugs and junk food, eventually leaving you with a sick and diseased soul.
For purifying that diseased soul, we must seek a solution.
Let Islam guide you to a sense of fulfilment, true happiness and a healthy soul.
Allah says in the Glorious Quran:
“Only in the remembrance of Allah will your hearts find peace” (13:28)
Our souls are empty and we need to fill it with good, so that there remains no space for the desire to sin.
Every act of worship requires both body and soul to participate. We all pray Salah, sometimes only by bodily actions whereas it should be accompanied by actions of the soul i.e.; devotion, humility, and submission to Allah in full sincerity. We all fast, but in this hadith we come to know that worship requires both body and soul to work simultaneously:
The Prophet (PBUH) said: “Whoever does not leave off false speech and evil deeds, then Allah has no need of his leaving off his food and drink.” [Sahih Al Bukhari)]
Our bodies without the soul are a mere corpse; if the soul departs from it, it becomes a wasted husk. Our Iman is food for our souls, so remember Allah and Allah will remember you.
Fill your souls with the right food and your soul will never starve again.
