The Eternal Journey

Maulana Wahiduddin Khan | Sunday Guardian, October 28, 2018

Every affair should be looked at in its eternal context. A “guard” may give one temporary support in this world, but when one reaches the next world, there will be no one to lend a helping hand.

How man loses out in life

Maulana Wahiduddin Khan | Sunday Guardian, Oct 14, 2018

The present world is a preview of the Hereafter. Here, a person receives in embryonic form the joys and blessings which God has made fully available in the world to come. This is so that he may see the infinite joys of eternity in the guise of the incomplete blessings of this world—so that he may see one drop of water, and realize that it is indicative of a vast ocean beyond.
