Praise be to Allah Most Wise, and peace and blessings on the beloved Messenger of Allah (sallalahu 'alaihi wa sallam) who lamented that Musa ('alaihi al-Salām) did not show more patience with Khidr('alaihi al-Salām), the supreme teacher and guide of Ākhir al-Zamān, for had Musa done so, we would have learnt more from Khidr through Sūrah al-Kahf of the blessed Qur'ān.
The world today is akin to the skin of a banana which has been tossed into a garbage-bin and is rotting. Those who have hearts that can penetrate that reality of the world today, are a people who consequently feel lost in what has become for them, an alien world. They feel disgusted (i.e., fed-up) with this world. They long for a way out of a lonely tiresome life devoid of peace, contentment and true happiness.
