Its hard to focus in study in the midst of everything going on here in Egypt. Its a turmoil. A real war against Al Haq. It saddens me to see how our own brothers would not back our holy religion but stay behind the secularist. Hadn't they heard that Islam is the way of life? Islam is something so holistic; just look at how much of the land was governed by the caliphate empires years ago? Almost two third of the world was once under the caliphates who were like us, Muslim. They did followed Syariah laws, and what's so wrong about exercising it, you don't want to give it a chance? (Though you aren't supposed to give it a chance, you should oblige by them once you said the syahadah). Instead you want to separate country matters from religion. You have been given the chance, yet you just rub it off. You just brace yourself when Allah ask you in the afterlife, ok.
They don't understand Islam. Simply that. When you don't understand something, you tend to spread only lies and ends up confusing and inciting a lot more innocent mind to hate us. There are thousands in this world who got the wrong message of Islam, who misunderstand its teaching and its believers.
Ya Allah. It really saddens me to the core. I don't have any power right now. I don't even deserve to hold any. But one thing I know, all of you and I, we, we have the power of dua (prayer and hope), blessed by our Most Loving Allah upon us. Lets pray for Islam, be sure and have pure faith in this arduous yet beautiful path. He hears our cry even when you call upon him in the deepest pit of the earth.
Try to soak your heart in this beautiful and calming verse from holy Quran:
''And when My servants ask you, [O Muhammad], concerning Me - indeed I am near. I respond to the invocation of the supplicant when he calls upon Me. So let them respond to Me [by obedience] and believe in Me that they may be [rightly] guided. ''
Al Baqarah, verse 186.
Ps: Muslims don't hate other religions, we accept and respect your belief. We are all humans in this world, no one is supreme than any others (though many wish they are). We are all the same, just that we have different belief and view. And we should all celebrate the difference.
I watched a video just now, about the real story lies behind this tumbling coalition happening in Egypt now. A video that really opens my eyes and heart on who's the braver one, who are the one deserved to be supported. Just send me a private message to watch the video, I'll copy the link for you.
So till then. Time is running out. I might not be able to interfere in this matter physically, but know that my mental and intellectual could be useful somehow to combat corrupted minds and soul out there, inshaAllah. May Allah bless all of us and stay safe. And yeah, do prepare for this upcoming Ramadhan, set your intention straight, lets all put a goal to be better Muslim at the end of this course, inshaAllah. :)
Till then, Wassalam.
