We are earthlings, and we are mortal. We are very jealous. We consider people from other countries to be different species. The idea is that they are residents of another planet. The bitter truth is that the Creator says in the Qur’an, Satan is your open enemy. After thirty years of writing, I understood the meaning of open enemy. We are our enemies, and our hearts plot against us. Violence, greed, arrogance and lust are our weaknesses. When shark attacks, the difference between humans and animals becomes clear. People help each other even though they are ruthless.We are earthlings, and we are mortal. We are very jealous. We consider people from other countries to be different species.

আমরা পৃথিবীবাসী, এবং আমরা মরণশীল। আমরা ভয়ঙ্কর হিংসুটে। অন্যদেশের মানুষকে আমরা ভিন্ন প্রজাতি মনে করি। ভাবটা এমন ওরা অন্য গ্রহের বাসিন্দা। তিক্ত সত্য হলো, স্রষ্টা কুরআনে বলেছেন, শয়তান তোমাদের প্রকাশ্য শত্রু। ত্রিশ বছর লেখালেখির পর প্রকাশ্য শত্রুর অর্থ বোঝেছি। আমরাই আমাদের শত্রু, এবং আমাদের অন্তর আমাদেরকে কুমন্ত্রণা দেয়। পরহিংসা, লোভ, অহংকার এবং কামেচ্ছা হলো আমাদের দুর্বলতা। যখন হাঙর আক্রমণ করে তখন মনুষ্যত্ব এবং পশুত্বের পার্থক্য দৃশ্যমান হয়। হে মনুষ্যত্ব! তোমাকে আমি কোথাও খুঁজে পাচ্ছি না, তুমি কি আত্মাহত্যা করেছ?
Not only by fortune but Muslims are also virtuous by virtue and wise by common sense. Islam teaches humanism to human beings. Muslims are monotheistic, pacifist and faithful. Muslims always strive to please Allah. Unity is the source of strength and peace for Muslims. In front of hungry and thirsty Muslims, water and food of others are invisible objects. Muslims are meritorious and does not cause distress to anyone by deliberately destroying their honour and wealth. Muslims strive for self-purification. Muslims protest against unjust oppression to ensure the safety of neighbours and relatives. But the present world is full of betrayers. Injustice is a daily occurrence. The rogues are killing orphans for influence. We must remember, men are social creature and altruism is part of our duty. To be successful in life, we have to stop ill tactics and pilferage and practice virtues. Religion must be given importance to be endowed with natural qualities.
Everyone wants to be successful, but many do not know what success is. They just know they need wealth. The more wealth he has, the more successful he will be. The more popular they are, the more successful they will be. In reality, it’s the opposite. Popularity and wealth are not true success. The true success is to worship the Creator peacefully, eat happily and sleep comfortably without worries. Wealth cannot make us emperors, nor it can make us successful, it only endangers us.
Say, “O Allah, Owner of Sovereignty. You grant sovereignty to whom You will, and You strip sovereignty from whom you will. You honour whom you will, and You humiliate whom you will. In Your hand is all goodness. You are Capable of all things.” 3.26.
why there is no justice for injustice and oppression?
If Allah were to hold mankind for their in- justices, He would not leave upon it a single creature, but He postpones them until an appointed time. Then, when their time arrives, they will not delay it by one hour, nor will they advance it. 16.61.
And We have already created man and know what his soul whispers to him, and We are closer to him than [his] jugular vein. Qaf 50:16.
Man was created restless. Touched by adversity, he is fretful.Touched by good, he is ungenerous. Except the prayerful. Al-Ma’arij 70:19. 20.21.22.
hearts find comfort in the remembrance of Allah
So remember Me, and I will remember you. And thank Me, and do not be ungrateful. O you who believe! Seek help through patience and prayers. Allah is with the steadfast. A-Baqarah 2:152.153.
Unquestionably, Allah’s friends have nothing to fear, nor shall they grieve. Those who believe and are aware. Yunus 10:62.63
