Salam,

I don't know if I can post this here or not but if it is not allowed then feel free to delete this post.


Riddle Number 1

There was a man who went on a train one day to a destination. It was the happiest day of his life. When he returned from the destination, he was extremely happy. You could say that on that day, he was the happiest man on earth. He was thanking Allah for something so much (because of him being happy). There was a reason for him being happy. So anyway, he got off the train and walked through a tunnel. At the end of the tunnel he killed himself.
Why?


I can give clues once you start guessing.

If this post is not appropriate, please delete it. Jazakallah.

The only thing that comes to mind is that the killing was not a killing of the physical self, but the nafs.

shahly: nope, not about nafs or anything

maryam_1: you are sooo close. It's not that he lost this something, he just THOUGHT he lost it.

ok, dont laugh at me me but by any chance had he gained his eyesight and for that reason he was really happy and thanking Allah and whilst walking through the tunnel and the tunnel being so dark he thought he lost his eyesight again. I know its far fetched but its just a guess to get another clue.
