NKUS – Best Life Living Formula
Living a life happily is the rarest thing happening now days in this world. Although you may have the best thing you want to, the best degree which matches you, best job you dream for, best lover you want to be with, best car you wish for, best relationship you want to be in, money, fame & respect, people may follow you like a crazy bird, but still there is a point of unrest in your soul. What is that thing which is missing in one’s life to make things perfect despite having whatever a person wants to?
Only 5 % of people are having all the things mentioned above, other 95% have nothing amongst them but still I found both of them on the same line of dissatisfaction and unhappiness. It sounds so ridiculous that people who have everything and those have nothing both are unsatisfied & unhappy. The million dollar question here arise that if these are not what gives person happiness than what else we need. I thought deep about it for days and days & come with a self made NKUS formula to allow a person to live happy. NKUS is a solution of every problem because it a paradigm shifter of our mind. So, let’s find out that what this NKUS all about is and how it can change one’s life.
Intention is a root of everything action. Let’s see the importance of NIYAT from Islamic history;Narrated ‘Umar bin Al-Khattab RadiAllahu Anhu: The Prophet Sallallahu Alaih i wasallam said, “The rewards (of deeds) are according to the intention, and everybody will get the reward for what he has intended. So whoever emigrated for Allah’s and His Apostle’s sake, his emigration was for Allah and His Apostle Sallallahu Alaihi wasallam; and whoever emigrated for worldly benefits, or to marry a woman, then his emigration was for the thing for what he emigrated for. “(Sahih Bukhari, Vol 7, Book 62, No.8). IQBAL on intention says that ” Aksar Log Khali hath Laut atay hain hr”Namaz”k baad !! Amal ka daromadar niyatoun per hai. Whatever you do will ve just secondary, the first thing which shapes your thought & action is your intention (NIYAT)!
Let’s say If you to give an interview, preparing for you next paper, starting a new business or new relationship, working on any project, having a presentation in class, standing for anything or against any issue, want to do some social work or anything else! These all have one thing in common and that is your intention (Niyat). Intention helps you to make your focus on the action you are going to take. If you are going to present in the class then only your intention will help you do the accurate & necessary actions. If you don’t have intention you won’t read or prepare. If you want to go to an interview you must have an intention to do more than great, it will allow you to think positive and feel better about it. And when you are feeling better about yourself then your all actions will be positive and at the end it will lead you towards success. Intention gives you a sense of positive direction to think and plan accordingly. If you are intensive about anything you want to do then your dreams won’t allow you to sleep at all because it creates a kind of unrest situation in your soul which teases you to do something & not just staying back. True intention gives you a punch of motivation to the right take actions.
No doubt what one does is what counts. Not what one had the intention of doing. TRY means you do it with all your heart & soul with utilizing all the options available to you. If you didn’t TRY enough and haven’t utilized all the options available to you then this won’t call Try at all. If someone stays home searching for a job and after few days end up by saying that he tried a lot applied online and got no response then it’s not a TRY at all. I define TRY as utilizing all the seen and un-seen options around you. We avoid most of the seen and unseen is always un-discovered where the true TRY lies mostly & about which we never think. Applying for job a is seen source which is known to everybody which is just a 5% of a whole TRY and the remaining 95% is unseen for which a person has to struggle and go out but mostly never consider it which ends up at failure. I have come across with people who says that everything is written in our luck and it will come to us one day but at the same time I saw them crossing road by seeing left and right.
I believe, nothing is written, if something is written somewhere that would be “TRY all the seen and unseen sources available to you”. I often share the example of Edison who invented light after 10,000 tries, just imagine would we have been able to attempt all those 10000, I guess a big NO! What Edison did was the utilizing the unseen/un-discover sources available to him with all the strong and positive intentions. If we look into history, Tariq ibn Ziyad was a Muslim commander who led the Islamic Umayyad conquest of Visigothic Hispania in 711–718 A.D. He burnt all his boasts to don’t give a second thought in his solders mind and to force them to think that there is no point of return & they will have to give 110% TRY with great intentions in back. Being perfect Trierer you must TRY all your seen and unseen sources around you with great passion like Edision and point of no return mentality like Tariq Bin Ziyaad, and then we can say YES someone has tried a lot but we put off things after 3 to 5 TRY maximum which is just a waste of energy & time. Even a strong rock can be break by a consistently falling water drop on it and we the HUMANS, are blessed with immense powers through which we can achieve anything we want to by streamlining all the powers and then giving it proper and consistent TRY.
Umeed (Hope) is something for which every human is living; I personally call it a living factor. If there was no HOPE in this world then the life would have been become so miserable. There is a famous saying HOPE Sustains life (Umeed pe dunya qaim hay). After doing an effort in any action for anything then there is a time span between the action done and the result appear, I call this time a Hope Span. In this span you must think positive in which it doesn’t matter what kind of efforts you had put in. If you go to an interview with a good Intention and gave your full TRY with utilization of all the seen & unseen sources available to you then you must have full Hope on self belief on whatever you have done that was the best thing you could do. Now, it’s up to all mighty Allah because being human we have nothing in our hand but just Intention and Sincere TRY. There is an Islamic says that what you HOPE for from Allah, HE we will return the same to you, if this is the formula then it’s better to keep faith on whatever you have done and whatever Allah will decide for you it has two factors one is self confidence which gives you a positive feeling for yourself and by trusting Allah will include an element of BARKAT in it.
Being, Muslim we are blessed with this great tool which is called “SHUKAR”. Allah in Quran says if you want more then offer SHUKAR and no doubt Allah will give more to those who often offer SHUKAR. I have achieved a lot by doing nothing but just offer SHUKAR on everything that happen to me. We all have seen a mother’s love for her children, and ALLAH say my love for my worshippers is more than 70 mothers love, which is matchless. There are two kinds of happenings in this world’s one is what we want and that happened and the other is what we don’t want and that happened too. We must be ok and happy with both happenings because both cannot happen without the permission and wish of ALLAH. In the first condition we are happy automatically but in second condition we always give a second thought which needs clarity for which my question from readers as that if one mother can never think/plan bad for her children then how ALLAH can plan bad which apparently may seems against our un-productively wish. HE loves us more than 70 Mothers. So, this has be part of our AQEEDA that whatever happening in this world or whether is in our wish-list or not, is good for us and it was planned by all mighty ALLAH and we must offer SHUKAR every time against every happening.
If you think that you have nothing to offer SHUKAR then let me write this as right now reading this article then there are few things for which you should offer SHUKAR like if you are able to read this article it means, you are alive for which offer SHUKAR! If you can see this article it means you have eyes offer SHUKAR! If you can understand this article it means you have beautiful brain working well that can understand things and transform signals in no time for which offer SHUKAR! If you are sitting, standing or lie down it means you are not paralyzed & your body structure is in right shape & working properly for which offer SHUKAR! If you can plan, sense, feel and connect these words with your past, present and future it means that you are Ashraf ul Makhlooqat (The Best Creation) offer SHUKAR!!
So, always have good intention followed by whole hearted & consistent TRY, then have high HOPE followed by SHUKAR for whatever the result come. By doing this and having full faith on it you can live happily, meaningfully & religiously.
