Even though nobody recommended Colombo as a place to visit I was interested in Sri Lanka's capital so I decided to stay there for my last day and explore the city and its sights.
Turned out to be a good idea as I had a very interesting day. The temperature and humidity were almost unbearable which made me drive by TukTuk to almost all my destinations. During this sightseeing tour I got to know an option for my future husband 'Hello Ma'am! Have a look! Very good boy! Wanna marry him?' and had to avoid many - sometimes very creative - scams. For me Colombo was definitely worth a visit as there are some beautiful things to see but one day seemed to be enough.
Sura Al-Baqarah, Ayah 201
وَمِنْهُمْ مَنْ يَقُولُ رَبَّنَا آتِنَا فِي الدُّنْيَا حَسَنَةً وَفِي الْآخِرَةِ حَسَنَةً وَقِنَا عَذَابَ النَّارِ
Yet there are others who say, “Our Lord! Grant us the good of this world and the Hereafter, and protect us from the torment of the Fire.”
<<< Many has misunderstood the meaning of this dua. It actually mean, Ya Allah, give us the most beautiful thing in this world. Allah say the best thing you have in this world is the role model of the Prophet Muhammad PBUH. So, when we ask for the best thing in this world is to be the follower of our role model in the best way. The best thing you can have in this world is following the man that had the best life in this world which is Prophet Muhammad PBUH. And if you that , it is logical that you also get the best thing in afterlife. It doesn’t mean the car, the house, money and so on. If you do request for this, it is okay, but it mean you forget the purpose of your life. Dunia had come down from your hand into your heart. -Sura Al-Baqarah, Ayah 202
أُولَٰئِكَ لَهُمْ نَصِيبٌ مِمَّا كَسَبُوا ۚ وَاللَّهُ سَرِيعُ الْحِسَابِ
It is they who will receive a ˹heavenly˺ reward for the good they have done. Surely Allah is swift in reckoning. <<< This is scary.
نَصِيبٌ مِمَّا كَسَبُوا
means there will be a portion that they earn. Meaning, we only get a portion of the rewards of doing the good deeds because of factors of sincerity, quality and so on. We need to watch out on quality of our good deeds. Allah want us to understand we had to earn. There is something that you don’t get paid for. May Allah grant us full reward because we can’t survive with what we had done.

Einfach eine Wucht.! Ich habe meinen ganzen Plan für den Aufenthalt in Delhi geändert und bin überglücklich darüber. Heute bin ich in den Genuss einer privattour durch alt und neu Delhi gekommen und mein Fahrer hat mir all die Stellen gezeigt, die mich interessiert haben. So habe ich innerhalb von 6 Stunden die monumentalsten und beeindruckendsten Bauwerke dieser Riesen Stadt besuchen können. Es war ein unglaublich schöner Tag und vielleicht klappt ja sogar morgen der Besuch des Taj Mahals😍😍 #india#travel#world#backpack#hotel#rooftop#blessed#sights#sightseeing#thankful
