Think about the soul and the body

We are essentially a soul which is given a body to manifest in material plane. Not just a body inside which a soul resides. The two perspective have significant difference.

Look at your body and think. May be 50 years or 60 years from now, your flesh, bones and almost everything of the body will disintegrate and will be destroyed. But your soul will endure. So give it a thought what you have done for your soul.

In the Final Testament, God mentions: And be on your guard (be mindful) against a day when one soul shall not avail another in the least, neither shall intercession on its behalf be accepted, nor shall any compensation be taken from it, nor shall they be helped. (The Quran, 002.048)

It is our soul that carry us to the hereafter, so lets contemplate how much improvement we have done to our soul.

Have we helped it learn from this precious life?
Have we realize our destinies?
Have we listened to the whispering of the heart that comes from the depth of our soul?

We have paused a lot in front of a mirror to see the reflection of our face or body which is utterly temporal. But have we paused for a moment in trying to see the reflection of our soul in the heart?

Have we done justice to our consciousness? Are we still too ignorant of the Day of Judgement when all soul will be dealt justly?

And We will set up a just balance on the day of resurrection, so no soul shall be dealt with unjustly in the least; and though there be the weight of a grain of mustard seed, (yet) will We bring it, and sufficient are We to take account. (The Quran 021.047)

Do we ponder on that fact that nobody can save us but we ourselves by the grace of God? It is neither the son of God, nor Buddha, nor Krisha, nor Moses who can save your soul. It is you and only you who have to be responsible for your soul.

And a burdened soul cannot bear the burden of another and if one weighed down by burden should cry for (another to carry) its burden, not aught of it shall be carried, even though he be near of kin. You warn only those who fear their Lord in secret and keep up prayer; and whoever purifies himself, he purifies himself only for (the good of) his own soul; and to God is the eventual coming. (The Quran 035.018)

Have we entertained the thought that He Who is the Soul of everything will judge our soul?

That God may repay each soul according to what it has earned; surely God is swift in reckoning. (The Quran 014.051)
