The washing machine of life.

The life of this world is like that of a washing machine. Wherein each individual cloth is put separately, who are then together for a while in their rotation but taken out as individual clothes after the wash. Likewise, we all came to this world as individual, though in the rotation of life we are together for some time. The position we are placed in, our surroundings and people around us are only a destiny-bestowed by Allah. What matters is how much cleaned each one is in their position and place. One may be as low as a pair of socks or as elevated as a head gear (topi) (in their position), but if they get cleaned they are all elevated to the same row over the clothes-line.

One is elevated to the ranks for Taqwa even if he is of the Habsha (Ethiopia) as Bilal (r.a).
One is thrown to the bottom of pit for Kufr even if he is of noble Quraish as Abu Jahl.

Then stained clothes are put aside and may be processed through bleaching. But permanently stained or totally dirty are thrown in the dustbin of eternity. May Allah save us all.


وَلَقَدۡ جِئۡتُمُونَا فُرَٲدَىٰ كَمَا خَلَقۡنَـٰكُمۡ أَوَّلَ مَرَّةٍ۬ وَتَرَكۡتُم مَّا خَوَّلۡنَـٰكُمۡ وَرَآءَ ظُهُورِڪُمۡ‌ۖ
You have come to Us all ALONE, just as We had first created you, and you have left behind you what We had bestowed on you  (Surah Al-Anaam: Part of Ayah No. 94)
