al-majnun haqqul majnun

A'udhu billah hi minassyaitan nir rajeem,
Bismillah hir Rahman nir Raheem,
La hawla wala quwwata illa billah hil aliyyil azeem

There was a story related to mental sickness:

Whilst the Blessed Prophet(saw) was walking he saw a group of sahabas congregating, Rasulullah(saws) asked them "why are you here?" a sahaba answered,"Ya Rasulullah, there is a crazy man on rampage.That is why we are here".

thus Rasulullah(saw) said :
"That fellow is not crazy.He is just having a serious predicament.Do you know who the real crazy people are (al-majnun haqqul majnun)?"

The sahabas answered,"No Ya Rasulullah".

So he clarified to them,"The real sick are those who take each step in arrogance(takabbur),who views everyone else in a disgusted manner(high regards of oneself),whose breast is held up in pride, he hopes for Gods' bounty but yet is still occupied with evil deeds, whose evilness is a source of constant agony for everyone else and whose pity is never hoped for.That is the truly sick ones.As for this fellow,he is just in a predicament."

This somehow explains why we are in such a situation today. Surely it is because there are many "crazies" running around in todays society given a free leash, not to mention the authority that some posses.Like most illnesses,the most serious ones are hardly seen physically,and if they do is just an effect of an illness already taking its course.

May God help us cure our "hidden" sickness for certainly it is not the eye that is blind, but the hearts which is in our breasts.
Our life is short,composed of mere breaths while the journey very long and ardous.May God make our footing firm and bless us with His guiding light.Hasbunallahu.

Ya Muqallibal qulub, thabbits qalbin 'ala deenik

and lets end this post with a verse from Mevlana Jalaluddin Rumi:

Longing is the core of mystery.
Longing itself brings the cure.
The only rule is,

Suffer the pain.

-Peace be to you-

Alhamdulillah, an excellent lesson, brother :) And in exchange for the Rumi verse, I offer a refrain from Dr. Javad Nurbakhsh, Master of the Nimatullahi Sufi Order:

Suffering Stay!
God is physician enough,
Seek not a cure:
He is Merciful.

Ya Haqq!
