More, More and More

"One very important law of nature, called the law of giving suggests that the more we want of something, the more we must give away of it, meaning the more knowledge you want for yourself, the more you should give it to others. The more love you want for yourself, the more you must give. The more money you want the more you must give away. The more respect you want, the more you must give. The more and more you give away, the more and more you will have, because it comes back manifold. Isn't it interesting? Well, laws of this world are different from laws of nature, and that is where most of us go wrong."

beautiful reminder.
it was so well written i decided to investigate the author. on the web i found document labeled a brief resume of faiez h. seyal
(brief!?! its 11 pages long)

i recommend that you begin by reading page 11 then proceed back at the top. remarkable journey. thank you syra.

@ Bilal, jee bilkul,I can't recall the exact wordings but one of the noble and full of wisdom sayings of the Holy Prophet (P.B.U.H) points out that Allah helps those who helps others. I will post that beautiful saying soon! I have it saved up.

@Khany, Thanks 4 the link. Impressive Resume indeed. In his book (The Road to Success) he relates his own life experiences and achievements too. Inspiring and wonderful read.

Isn't this world a part of nature too??

Saira Andleeb said...

Very true !!! :)

@Farhan: I think No. Its the other way around: Nature is a part of this world.

Syra said...

I perceive it this way:
The world is part of nature. Laws of Nature set by Allah, with his divine knowledge overrides laws of this world that humans have established.

@Farhan & Syra:
I think by "laws of this world" the writer means to imply the "laws made by the people". laws made by people are what people in a certain point of time/space think of to be absolutely correct. The writers trying to say is that the laws people have made so far (especilally in the scenario discussed ) are different from the the laws of nature, and that one can only benefit fully by following the laws of nature.

"I think by "laws of this world" the writer means to imply the "laws made by the people"."

makes much more sense than:

"Nature is a part of this world."

Perhaps all three of us were/are of the same view point but expressing it in a different way.
Humans may resort to being selfish, immoral,dishonest, insensitive etc to achieve little worldly gains but sooner or later the law of nature sets in and such humans find themselves to be in a state of loss (at least in terms of inner peace and self respect). So if you want more, you got to give more and may it come back manifold times for the better.
