The Illusion of Numbers
Photo by Umar Mita

Oh, we are so preoccupied with numbers. Today I thought about the numbers that I have.

What does 40,000 likes on Facebook and 25,000 followers on Twitter mean? Do they mean that I am somewhat better than someone who has less than 40,000 likes and 25,000 followers? Am I more "credible" because I have those numbers?

If so, then riddle me this: what about the Prophets? Some of them had only a handful of followers and some of them had none.

NONE!

But they are Prophets, the greatest human beings ever walked on this earth. If numbers were the measuring stick, then where do you place them?

Astaghfirullah.

I learned a valuable lesson today: Truth is free of numbers.

Even if the whole world is on my side, without Allah al-Haq (the Truth), then I am nothing.

Nothing. That number is zero.
