The Past Is Gone Forever !!

By brooding over the past and its tragedies , one exhibits a form of insanity – a kind of sickness that destroys resolve to live for the present moment . Those who have a firm purpose have filed away and forgotten occurrences of the past , which will never ever again see light , since they occupy such a dark place in the recesses of the mind . Episodes of the past are finished with ; sadness cannot retrieve them , melancholy cannot make things right , and depression will never bring the past back to life . This is because the past is non-existent.

Do not live in the nightmares of former times or under the shade of what you have missed . Save yourself from the ghostly apparition of the past. Do you think that you can return the sun to its place of rising , the baby to its mother’s womb , milk to the udder , or tears to the eye? By constantly dwelling on the past and its happenings , you place yourself in a very frightful and tragic state of mind .

Reading too much into the past is a waste of the present . When Allah mentioned the affairs of the previous nations , He , The Exalted , said : “That was a nation who has passed away”     Qur’an – { 2:134} 

Former days are gone and done with , and you benefit nothing by carrying out an autopsy over them , by turning back the wheels of history.

The person who lives in the past is like someone who tries to saw sawdust. Of old , they used to say : “Do not remove the dead from their graves.”

Our tragedy is that we are incapable of dealing with the present : neglecting our beautiful castles , we wail over dilapidated buildings . If every man and every jinn were to try jointly to bring back the past , they would most certainly fail. Everything on earth marches forward , preparing for a new season – so should you !!
