The Matrix and Our World
The matrix is all over. It surrounds us. A mind can only realize this truth through an understanding of Islam: a way of life that allows believers to see through the blinding materialistic veils of this world and instead focus on the Hereafter. Allah the Almighty tells mankind: “Know that the life of this world [dunya] is but amusement, vain talk, adornment, pompous boasting to one another and competition in the increase of wealth and children—like the example of rain whose [resulting] plant growth pleases the farmers then it dries up and you see it turning yellow. Then it becomes scattered debris…And what is this life except the enjoyment of delusion” (Quran 57:20).
