What's all this?


There are times in life where you question. Question life, question existence, question ways of everything.

Sometimes they make sense. As a Muslim, you do tend to have majority of the answers, but in a bizarre way, its so hard to still get into terms with what is happening and why.

Life's crazy.

These past couple of days I've been thinking more than usual. I do feel like i think a lot, i just don't know how to put things together. How to make sense of it all.

Why do we do things the way we do? Why do we laugh and cry? What is happiness? Why do we feel? How do we feel? What is life? Where are we going? What are we doing? How can we change? Why do people kill each other? Why are Muslims labelled terrorists when the religion 'they' claim to follow teaches nothing but peace and tolerance? Why do they call themselves Muslims? Why do they jeopardise an already awkward situation for us around the world?

How can Ethnic violence erupt in a country whose basis of creation was freedom in practice of religion? Why do people call themselves Pakistanis? Why can they not be stripped off their identity and transported to a world where them lot kills themselves and lets us all be? Why do they destroy families? Do they have none? Is the urge for power and money and fame and desire so strong that human LIVES DONT MATTER?? How can they take away a father from a child, a son from a mother, a husband from his wife?
Why is no one accountable? Who is the authoritative figure? Who selects them? Why are they elected, if people know they'll be corrupt? Does it not mean those who elect them are corrupt themselves? That's the the only logical explanation right? Corruption of morals leads to corruption in life, anything, everything!

Do people have no morals left? If they have, why is all this happening? If they don't, why do i question, why do i not feel and think like them? Why am i odd? What has happened to everyone's conscience? If everyone wants peace, why do we still have none?

Why are lives of stars, famous personnel and politicians more expensive than that of ordinary people? Do they not live and breathe the same air? Are they not made of the same clay?

There are times when i feel like covering my ears and screaming, times when i want to shove my head into the ground, close myself in a cupboard and never come out, retreat into a cave. Anything, where all these killings and craziness make sense!

Alas, i have no clue, these questions seem so straight forward, but i cant find their answers, they're so twisted and out of this world. I do wonder what I'm doing around here.

Much love,


  1. I once read somewhere 'The people who are happy are so, because they see the world like they want to see it and those who are depressed are so because they see the world as it is.'
    I don't know if you're depressed. But, the point is that things like this happen. I find myself questioning life, the world, and even God, but that's okay. Questioning was never a crime.
    And to be quite honest, the world (or any specific country) was never at an ideal state, where it had everything it needed or wanted.
    You should definitely post more. I love reading the posts up on your blog. You're one thoughtful person, aren't you?
    Also, I'd love it if you checked out my blog!

  2. That is so me sometimes me myself ask questions which doesn't even make sense and for sure doesn't have any answer. Out of all the questions you mentioned in your post I would just sum up and ask one big question which can answer all these question. They say "Everything happens for a reason" I always ask but why, this is the biggest query in life.
    Great post :)

  3. Allah has made everything..... he has the right to control it.. following post might help you getting your answers

    ایک مرتبہ ایک کمزور جسم کا شخص حضرت علی رضی اللہ تعالیٰ عنہ کی خدمت میں حاضر ہوا اور آپ کے سامنے بیٹھ کر کمزور آواز میں کہنے لگا: ”حضرت رضی اللہ عنہ ! مجھے تقدیر کے بارے میں بتائیے کہ اس کی حقیقت کیا ہے؟“ اس کے اس سوال کے جواب میں حضرت علی رضی اللہ تعالیٰ عنہ نے فرمایا: ”یہ ایک تاریک راستہ ہے تم اس پر نہیں چل سکو گے“”آپ مجھے تقدیر کے بارے میں بتادیجئے“ اس شخص نے دوبارہ اپنا سوال دہرایا۔ ”یہ ایک گہرا سمندر ہے تم اس میں داخل نہیں ہوسکتے“

    حضرت علی رضی اللہ تعالیٰ عنہ نے اسے سمجھانے کی کوشش فرمائی لیکن وہ شخص مسلسل اصرار کرتے ہوئے ان سے تقدیر کے متعلق سوال کرنے لگا تو حضرت علی رضی اللہ تعالیٰ عنہ نے فرمایا ”یہ اللہ کا راز ہے جو تجھ سے پوشیدہ ہے لہٰذا تم اس راز کو افشا نہ کرو“ جب اس شخص کا اصرار مزید بڑھا اور اس نے ایک مرتبہ پھر حضرت علی رضی اللہ تعالیٰ عنہ سے تقدیر کے متعلق سوال کیا تو حضرت علی رضی اللہ تعالیٰ عنہ نے فرمایا ”اے سوال کرنے والے! یہ تو بتا کہ اللہ تعالیٰ نے تجھے اپنی منشاءکے مطابق پیدا کیا یا تیری مرضی کے مطابق؟“ اس نے عرض کیا کہ ”اللہ نے مجھے اپنی مرضی اور منشاءکے مطابق پیدا کیا ہے“ چنانچہ حضرت علی رضی اللہ تعالیٰ عنہ نے فرمایا ”تو بس پھر تجھے جس کام کیلئے چاہے استعمال کرے۔
