We have Sold our Souls for Gain

Certainly, we have sold our souls for gain. When we take a look around and observe humanity, we see how people have forgotten moral, social and cultural values. One doesn't seem to remember the purpose this life; yet all we find in a man of today is corruption, we are full of ourselves, corruption at all levels. A man of today is only obsessed with wealth, power and temporary fame, all those things which will be left behind when he leaves this ephemeral world.

Even Islam directs us to be humble and helpful to the others. But are we doing so? I don't think so, for if we would have implemented the teachings of our Holy Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him), the world would not have stood where it stands today.

If you disagree, then take a look around? Even a mere vendor lies and fools people for a few pennies knowing that it is a sin. Don't the shopkeepers & even hawkers make false statements regarding their items, just to gain some easy wealth? What are the actors and models doing? Are they not selling themselves for money and temporary fame? They do all kinds of exposures that shouldn't be done. As far as the current state of my beloved country Pakistan is concerned the people in general would be a little more than just concerned and act righteously instead of criticizing, we as a nation, would prosper.

True Villian

No heart is as pure as one might believe it to be, evils pertains all. It's really hard to bring your mind about the fact that you could be wrong too. We generally keep on finding reasons to blame others and ignore our own faults. We are so persistent in denying that we even kill the voices in our hearts which try stopping us; how can we even accept such a thought from the mouth of others when we wouldn't even let our hearts say to us. It is sad and it happens all the time, in no matter what situation we are we consider ourselves as the innocent victim of all the atrocities of the world. It never occurs to us that someone is being tortured and hurt because of us, we could be the villain as well. Why can't we see beyond our petty selves? Why do we always start considering ourselves the victim without thinking twice? This way nobody ever sees their mistakes, they continue their walk of life believing they are a victim of this cruel world and do not change their belief of others, not giving them a chance a they deserve.
