Ruslana Korshunova was a Russian supermodel who plummeted to her death a week ago. Invesigators concluded her death a suicide. So why did someone so successful (in the material world) have to commit suicide. Those who like to read magazines when they are checking out from Walmart, Target etc. find these people as having everything and imagine thier lives to be like a fairy tale. Not only are they successful they have fame behind them.
So what went wrong?
Interestingly, I found an article on ABCNEWS.com(http://abcnews.go.com/Entertainment/Story?id=5293003&page=1). The article speaks for itself on how the Western concept of liberating women has taken a miserable toll on its practitioners.
For instance read this “The girls get preyed on by everybody, and everyone has their own agenda,” one of the promoters says. SubhanAllah! There are beasts who want to prey on these girls just to satisfy there material desires and once done with fulfilling there desires of money and even lust just leave them off to be preyed on by more. These women are drinking, revealing thier awrah in front of men for what? For money. But they are not happy. This particular model also had parents that were really poor. So she wanted to send money back home.
Another point that really is discomforting and chills my spine is the fact that what was this person doing when she was dying? Just hours before she was watching a movie about a love story with a former boyfriend, and came home,had some drinks and then death came. As we die in this world that’s how we will be reserructed in the next. May Allah make us among the saliheen and give us a good end. One of my shuyookh told me that a person was dying and he fell unconcious. He got up and said “Take me to the woman by the tree of gold that I just saw.” SubhanAllah! This person is seeing Jannah when he is dying. And when he died he screamed La ilah a illAllah such that every person in the street heard him. So we should take sometime out to think are we trying for husnul Khatimah or a bad end? Allah says in the Quran “اقرأ كتابك كفى بنفسك اليوم عليك حسيبا” Translation:[It will be said], “Read your record. Sufficient is yourself against you this Day as accountant.”
Rape is a common practice in this circle. These young women are so promiscuously dressed that there clients and photographers try to rape them. When I imagine what goes on it just shocks me. Solution: Do hijab and dont talk to strang men. AND TO MEN LOWER YOUR GAZE!!(Islam has the answer only if we implemented it).
One last point is that Islam did not reach her in time. She did not learn what the truth was and so many countless others. We need to be on guard and keep inviting people to the truth. Imagine her life had she found the fruit of Iman. She would be so happy that finally no more depression! Fruits of Iman. Belief is so crucial for our existence. That is why the people who make dhikr of Allah and those that don’t are like the living and the dead. The soul’s sutenance is Allah’s dhikr. If a righteous person misses one salat he feels he is dead and has missed alot. Do we have that feeling or are we dead?
Lessons to be learnt: Be careful of Shyatan’s deception.
Seek Allah’s refuge and make contionous istaghfar.
Learn Surah Annur and teach it to our household.
Detach ourself from material desires by fasting.
Teach our boys to lower thier gaze and our girls to be modest in thier dressing. And I have seen this countless times in masajid that women are dressed with just a head covering and after that its jeans etc. Be mindful of where you are going.
Take a class on Aqeedah and increase your iman and taste the sweetness of Iman.
Please forgive and correct me if I have said anything wrong. If there was any good in it, it was from Allah and any bad then it was from Shaytan and myself.
Subhana kallahumma wa bihamdika ash-haduana la illaha illa ant astaghfiruka wa atubu ilayk, Ameen.
