Where then are you going?

Ever wondered about your destination of life? I do, a lot. I see this world as a place where we continuously drag ourselves closer to our destinations. We have freedom to choose where to go. When the specified time has come, we have no more opportunity to set that destination.

So these questions keep popping out in my head: “Where am I going?”, “Am I going on the right track?”, “Am I going to be satisfied when I reach my destination? Just so, I found an incredible answer:

فَأَيْنَ تَذْهَبُونَ
Where then are you going?
إِنْ هُوَ إِلَّا ذِكْرٌ لِلْعَالَمِينَ
This is but a Message to all the people of the world
لِمَنْ شَاءَ مِنْكُمْ أَنْ يَسْتَقِيمَ
to each one who wishes to follow the Right Way.
وَمَا تَشَاءُونَ إِلَّا أَنْ يَشَاءَ اللَّهُ رَبُّ الْعَالَمِينَ
Yet your wishes are of no avail unless Allah, the Rabb of the worlds, pleases so. (QS. At-Takwir 26-29)
Where then am I going?
