From Wound Healing to Soul Healing
Wound is any discontinuity in the 1st stratum of skin (Maniple Manual of Surgery) While Soul is regarded as the immortal Self (Oxford Languages). The Quran itself does not describe “Rooh” as the immortal self. Nevertheless, in some contexts, it animates inanimate matter. Further, it appears to be a metaphorical being, such as an angel. Wound is temporary while soul is undying part of Human.
As, a person gets wound, he runs for the treatment. Surgeons do wash it with Saline, cover it with the bandage to protect it from foreign enemies as well as from endogenous bacteria (A snake in the grass) and apply sutures to close the wound.
You will be amazed that why I am spilling the beans of Surgery Subject. The thing is, I want to make you ponder over the point that why a person doesn’t run for the treatment when he got wound of his immortal thing i.e. Soul “Rooh”? Why not he goes towards physician? Why not he runs for Surgeon?
What will other call him? A fool? A dumb? A pinhead? Of course, he will be considered as a mindless. As from the day first, it is grinded in human’s yeast, he wants to be the leader, to be famous among people, to be the part of discussion among others, and to be the apple of eye of common masses, isn’t it? It’s is. Then why not he runs for the soul treatment as he got wound on the undying, eternal part? Isn’t it be like this that he goes for the true mentor (Ustaad/Mualim), proceed to the Surgeon (Allah the true healer) and wash his soul’s wound with the recitation of Quran, Cover It with the soft talks of The True Book from the felon of today’s life customs and got suture of the Verses of the Holy Quran.
Certainly we cannot hide our eyes from the truth, so we need to open the eyes of our heart, remove dust from it and should seek help of the true healer that is the one and only Allah. Make our relation with him so tight that it never ever breaks by Customs and Traditions, jagged path and combatant of own self. May Allah enlighten our Souls with his Blessings. Ameen
