He lays on the hospital bed-Smiling.
“Why are you smiling, son?”
“The pain, Ummi.” While reaching out for my hand, he continues “It reminds me of this mortal life. I don’t belong here. Remember the teacher said that time that all of us want to go back. We all want to go to where we used to be. We are all searching our way back. But sometimes….we all became so busy and forgot to search for it.
I know I won’t be able to live like an average person, but yet this is good, Ummi. Pain helps me to remember to work hard for the hereafter, to reach Jannah, to reach Him, to where there will be no pain thereafter…..Pain is good.”
