Traveler or Resident?


Traveler or Resident?

Bismillah,
Enjoying each day like there is no tomorrow, living “The Life”, making every moment worthwhile; these are some phrases that are commonly used.
Ever wonder what they actually mean? Becoming a resident of this world!
Now what does it mean by a resident? A resident is one who stays at a place permanently. How does one make themselves a resident of this world? They do so by considering it to be their ultimate home. By thinking they will live in this world forever.

On the other hand a traveler is one who is going through a transitory phase to reach their destination.
Imagine you are on a road trip to a distant far off place, and you stop somewhere to fuel up, do you unload all your belongings there? Of course not! You would not unload your belongings until you reach your destination.
Similar is the life of a believer. Their worldly life is like a simple road trip, they fuel up good deeds so that they may reach their ultimate destination – Jannah! Believers don’t consider this world to be their final destination; rather they are “strangers” in this world!
You decide whether this world is your residence or just a place to fuel up!
If you like it, then spread it.
