As humans since childhood, our mind is packed of questions especially this “why” looks to be part of our nature. Some of us even while getting older keep on asking a lot and so many “why” surrounds us by its long series. However, I sometimes prefer lessening this method, because asking a lot may perhaps disturb people. Whereas the other bigger reason is that whenever we ask “why?” and no one is on earth who could retort us, God replies us, but replies us in His own manner. He Almighty sometimes puts us directly in the action state to reach the response and memorize it forever. Although we need to be grateful to Him for the kindness he grants us, but it is a costly grant sometimes, we usually have to pay to gain the response of “why”. Thus, I at least am trying to be attentive while using “why?”
Let me narrate you one of such experiences, in which I paid to gain the reply: When I was student of primary school, I used to be very quiet and polite student. While seeing outside, headmaster was punishing students, was asking “why” they are being beaten? And “why” the students don’t behave themselves and be polite and attentive? ….
Long time… until I got a reply, which I will never forget in my life.
One day, my class fellows, except me and some other quiet students, seeing the teacher absent, started making noise and changed shape of the class: table on chairs, chairs on tables, some students under the table, some on the table, some on the chair, some chair on them, so whatever the could they did. Until our headmaster who was a very strict and dangerous man was informed. He entered the class with anger on face and a long metal ruler on hand, asked who was responsible for all these? Since no one could answer him, he started punishing all students one by one. Yeah, even the innocent and quiet students like me tasted that piece of bitter cake. We were beaten to the hand by that dangerous ruler. I would never forget that punishment in life. Not only because I was innocent there, but also it was a firm lesson and reply to my “why?” which had been wandering in my mind for long time. Yeah, I realized that people are not punished coz they are definitely the real criminals of misdeeds, not necessarily all executed and hanged humans had committed crimes or were the actual murderers. All prisons and convicts arrested and punished are not the real doer of the dreadful actions in the world. I believe sometimes “no reason” is too the reason to be punished. Well, these were the lessons I got it while my “why” was replied in childhood.
Many days before I read various old blogs in which some writers complained about their removed articles. Even though some of them got very annoyed, but still no satisfactory reply was given to them by IB. So again this “why?” came to my mind: why it was removed, why there was no reason told, why it happens? Why will IB make sad its good members by removing their articles when there was no hate and no discrimination in their articles? Etc.
Before understanding it, my God placed me in their locations and let me find these “whys” myself.
The unpleasant incident is that On Thursday I have submitted an article (the most expensive wedding dress of 2010). Unfortunately after a few hours, distinguished that neither in upcoming nor in my own blog anything as that title existed. We say in Dari language (jaai bud wa jula ni), means (web was existed, but the spider was not), hope I am correct in its translation.
Instead of being sad, believe me it surprised and smiled me. Because I didn’t feel that God cares that much about me and wants me to taste it that soon…
However I didn’t mind it, but still want to know “WHY?” it was removed? What was the reason? If it looked like a lie, I had mentioned the source too, as usually I do specially while translating from Dari/Farsi sources. It was all about a dress, no individual or people were targeted in it. …. Then why? Who would answer me now?
If again as usual there is no reason, then IB needs to be cleaned and sprayed to get rid of things as mice or…. Since I doubt mice for it. (Please don’t be narrow minded against my humors, as I told you I am smiling for my lost article.)
By the way, I aimed to write about “why”, not about my lost article. But again if you wish, enlighten the reason; otherwise tell me “why”?
Keep the above incidents in mind, lets move on, I believe it is not only we who has so many “why” in mind, but lots of people live or lived with these “whys” some of which were replied whereas some remained unanswered. Some “why(s)” have deserved response, but some considered neglecting.
To notice the positive face of WH question “why”; some humans could touch the sky of success while searching the reply of “why”. Edison, Ibn Sina, Einstein, Aristotle, Muhammad ibn Musa and so many other great scholars are examples of it.
Means if “why” exists in your mind in right and positive face, it is very much powerful and effective to find the facts and secrets hidden in nature and in our own complex creation. I believe life is to discover the response of your questions. No problem how tough time you may face while exploring the response of “why”. Be adventurer. Even if you know you wont become Ibn Sina, don’t give up, go ahead until there is a small sign of light to clarify and satisfy your mind about your “why”, try, quest, concentrate and rummage around the facts and reasons. You will succeed finally.
