The Seeker and The Hijrah

You take the blue pill, the story ends, you wake up in your bed and believe whatever you want to believe. You take the red pill, you stay in Wonderland, and I show you how deep the rabbit hole goes.

Uqba bin Amr said to Hudhaifa (radi Allahu anhuma), “Won’t you relate to us of what you have heard from Rasul Allah?” He said, “I heard him saying, “When Ad-Dajjal appears, he will have fire and water along with him. What the people will consider as cold water, will be fire that will burn. So, if anyone of you comes across this, he should fall into the thing which will appear to him as fire, for in reality, it will be fresh cold water.” – Sahih Bukhari

Neo discovered the Matrix because he was seeking it’s secret. That’s what lead him to Morpheus who began to teach him.
