If we look back and notice that how our lives contantly change and we become an entirely different person with time, sometimes we don’t even own our ourselves, sometimes this change is for better and sometimes not. Choosing the right path is always tricky and tough, and follow it is even worst, you face hurdles and deal with the circumstances which can challenge your decision in multiple ways, only determination and concentration can lead to permanent change.
Junaid jamshed (may his soul rest in peace) was one of the person who was a rockstar, extremely talented, handsome and youth icon of his time. He was an excellent singer and a great person belonged to an educated modern family. He had accomplished a life which some of people can only wish for. But here the Junaid Jamshed I like to talk about is a totally opposite of the one mentioned above.
To change your lifestyle is easy if you are not successful in life it’s even easier when the change is towards negativity. But when you are successful and fame is your best friend and someone ask you to leave all of it and change it for good, only then you realize how difficult it is.
Junaid jamshed was at the peak of his career when Allah Subhanatallah showed him His right path. He left all his achievements and decided to live an opposite lifestyle. He had to face a lot of criticism and negative comments. People judged him for his acts. They labeled him as hypocrat, just like any other person following path of truth, his life became impossible but he remained determined and focused. He himself has quoted a lot of times that his journey of transtion was full of trials where he had to prove himself. But when you are blessed and your intentions are crystal clear then destination is your only vision. His only wish was to die on emaan and he died as shaheed. His melodious voice as a humd sannah will live forever. Most of his qalam were written by himself and those words can give anyone goosebumps and refresh your emaan.
Here I want to add another thing which has disappointed me a lot. This is the delimna of our materialistic world that we acknowledge people after their death. Junaid Jamshed shaheed is also one of them and worst part is instead of recalling his life as a religious scholar our media is discussing his music life. It is said that after death only good deeds should be recalled but tv channels are raising their ratings. I request everyone to not discuss his previous life and only mention him as a religious scholar who died as shaheed. Junaid Jamshed will always live in our heart, his smiling face is unforgettable and his life is an example for people to learn. I wish we all can change our lives just like him and follow the sunnah of Muhammad PBUH ameen. May Junaid Jamshed soul rest in peace.
