Reality will always be greater than our dreams

People are often caught day dreaming. Our minds drift off to places we would rather be than here. People we would rather be with than the ones we are with now. Eating and drinking things that we desire more than what we currently have. Have we ever stopped to wonder what is greater, our reality or our dreams? The prophet -Salla Allahu ‘alaihi wa sallam- answers this question for us in describing jannah: “In it is what no eye has seen, no ear has heard of, nor has any mind imagined.” The reality of paradise is greater than anything we can imagine or dream of in this life. Paradise is the ultimate dream. Make it your driving force and motivation. As for this life it is just a means of making your dreams a reality. You may not have everything you dream of in this life, but if you work hard enough Allah guarantees all of your dreams and fantasies to come true in the next. May Allah make us from the inhabitants of al-firdaws without any hisab. Ameen.”
