    Learning more about the beyond

    Report bad ads?

    Hi i have a question that i hope people can answer me with full heart and as to what they really think.
    I think this world is beautiful i really do
    I am have been trying my best and i always will.
    My thought here is there is so much bad in the world, but would any of it matter nearly as much if people knew about jannah and that none if this will matter?

    My main question is
    What is jannah?
    Is this world really nothing?
    Should we not attach because jannah and ten million times better?
    I know none of us will know till we go there
    But in jannah can we do all that we missed here?
    Say i wanted to for a moment live out the life of a famous actor could i? But if anyone could wish for this what would be so special about it?
    Are the possibilities really endless?
    Can we fly? And have things only our minds can imagine? For example can we live out other worlds than come back to our main world in jannah? Can we go to the moon? Can we be a cartoon in the pokemon world?
    I just what to know what you think? And please dont call me childish and tell me to worry about getting there
    I do know its not a promise
    And just want something to be very excited for

    Re: Learning more about the beyond

    The whole place is a scam!

    ...are you the next sucker in line?

    Because we are all out here looking for our todays and tomorrows..

    And most people would write them on whatever the hell they can find.

    ..i have no knowledge on the second part of your post.


    You may yet end up as a pokemon in a pokeball in a poketrainers pocket.

    ...what a beautiful world.

    Thankfully.. the above is not what i keep in my heart. Its just an innacurate representation of the situation.

    The cruelty and ugliness of the world lies in those willing to follow.

    ..do what you want.

    ..dont do what you dont want.

    If such a distinction can be made by a person.

    The world does matter.

    If not then you would not have been told the feed those that are hungry.

    ..but if you give a man a fish..

    And he slaps you in the face with it.

    ..thats probably the wrong way to act.

    If you give a man a fish..

    And it slaps him in the face!

    Thats probably not doing anyone any good either.

    I only ask to have honest answers of what you really think, when you enter and are done with this short world
    What do you think that you can do?
    Anything
    I imagine this
    I imagine a room filled with many doors
    And all these doors lead to many different worlds that i cna visit whenever i wish
    Worlds like harry potter or lord of the rings
    Or disney
    But will always come back to my true home in jannah
    Do you think the door can be true?
    Can i live anyway or are such i want?

    Re: Learning more about the beyond

    So, here is my honest and personal response to your inquiry.

    First off, I want to say that the current me would want nothing more than the things you describe, in Paradise.

    But, I've stopped thinking of it like that actually, because my life in this world means so much to me. What that means for me is that I see all the beauty and try to truly value, and nourish it. I see the ugliness too, and try my best to be the vector of its transmutation into something pure. And, it is difficult to do this.. It's a dirty job, you could say haha. Over time, I started to want only one thing.. peace. You know, when you sincerely run a marathon, and cross the finish line.. the only thing you feel is accomplishment. And after that, all you want is water and rest and air. But, why did you run that marathon in the first place? That's the question I am continually asking myself.

    As an aside, when I was in school (Computer Science B.S.) I had this grand idea. What I really wanted to do, and was working towards, was to build a real life Pokemon stadium. People really thought that was incredible. But, I really see a lot of value in that idea. Sometime perhaps I could explain why, if you're interested to know; but, it parallels the value of having a place like Hogwarts in Universal Studios. The only reason I am not pursuing it now is that I feel like there are other things I need to do first. But, maybe some day.

    At last, my marathon is to make Paradise on Earth. But to do so in a way that is true and correct, following the guidance set forth by Allah as well as I am able to. As far as what comes after my time here, He only knows. But, I believe I will be satisfied.

    Re: Learning more about the beyond

    All we can say about Jannah is what we've been told through Hadith and the Quran. It will contain things we couldn't even comprehend with our current mind frame and I don't know if we will have the ability to make wishes. I continue to pray that Allah blesses my family and that I'll reunite with them in the hereafter. For me, that will be a good start.

    In terms of this world, it really is nothing in the grand scheme of things. We have our duties to carry out as Muslims and we should live our lives based on where we want to go, otherwise, you'll end up like a lot of the other people who chase the dunya and lose focus on the afterlife. People today and in the past have received the message of Islam and were told about Jannah. People have tried and still try to make the world a bad place to live in. All we can do is continue to spread and repeat the message. Whatever one decides is up to them.
