I’m sure many of us do think about this question in one or the other time in their lives that who are they? But like most of us, we just tell our name, age, gender etc. As our answer to this particular question. Is it so? Hell yes!
But if one thinks deep about it they’ll find out who they are and get they are. But my friend, the problem is that we ourselves have no idea who we are. We are humans they say, but do they act like one? The simple answer to the question “who am i?” is that we are the universe, the sky, the moon, the sun, the wind, the thunderstorm, the earth, the environment, the tsunami, the waves, the river, the rock, the sand and what not, my friend! What not?
We are simple but complex.
We are high but low at the same time.
We are flying but in an airplane.
We are dust but together a tornado.
We are precious (as diamond) yet found in coal.
We are humans yet monsters.
Most of all, we are unsatisfied.
Unsatisfied after all that we have,
For a man with a bike, is unsatisfied as he wants a car.
For a man with a car wants a better car, maybe the best.
For a man with the best car wants a villa.
For a man with both wants to live in peace but still stressed out of his work.
No one here is satisfied.
I don’t know, when will one ever be.
I see poor children being more happy than us who have everything we need by the grace of Allah.
A man once said,
I can buy everything but still i am poor.
Simply means that a man has everything, he can buy all those diamonds out there. But what he lacks is the love he can never buy, the emotions he can never buy.
Now have you got the answer of “who am i?”
Neither do i.
