In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
Spilt like milk, or shed like tears.
Nothing can appease our fears.
The price of life can not be paid.
The road to humanity remains unpaved.
Unforgettable pictures of the dead.
With that…all is said.
With helplessness in changing the decree we sit.
Scared only for ourselves we admit.
Our brethren with no power to fight.
We watch as if frozen with fright.
The screams of morning over the dead.
How is it we can manage to sleep in our bed?
Oh, ye Muslims woe to thee that spreads knowledge upon opinion, not fact.
Oh ye Muslims woe to thee that claims things that are halal to be haram because of lack of knowledge.
Oh ye Muslims woe to thee that makes haram things halal to blanket his sins.
Oh ye Muslims woe to thee that removes his display due to fear.
Allah, The Exalted says, “When they meet those who believe, they say: “We believe;” But when they are alone with their evil ones, They say: We are really with you. We (were) only jesting.” Surat Al Baqarah, Iyat 14.
When we shave our beards and remove our hajobs are we not like the hypocrites that would claim faith in front of the believers and then deny it in front of the disbelievers?
Where is our faith in the protection of Allah?
Allah, The Exalted says, “It is those who believe and mix not their beliefs with wrong -that are truly in security, for they are on right guidance.” Surat Al-An’am, Iyat 82.
Did we think that we would not be tested as our forefathers?
Allah, The Exalted says, “Do men think that they will be left alone on saying, “We believe”, and that they will not be tested?” Surat Al-Ankabut, Iyat 2.
Oh ye Muslims woe to thee that leaves his prayers till the end of the day to collect provision. Do we not realize that Allah has preordained for us our provision?
Allah, The Exalted says, “Verily thy Lord doth provide Sustenance in abundance for whom He pleaseth, and he straiten it. For He doth know and regard all His servants.” Surat Al-Bani Israel, Iyat 30
Oh ye Muslims hold fast to your faith, and trust in your Lord. Pray for guidance, and fear nothing but the punishment of your Lord. For surely any worldly suffering can not outweigh eternal punishment.
Have we become as those who fled from the battle with our Prophet for fear of their lives? Are we doomed as they were?
Oh ye Muslims take not those who disbelieve as friends for surely they are your enemies. And believe not what they say no matter how convincing their proof may be. For surely it is mixed with falsehood. Seek guidance and correction of faith from your Lord. Surely we dislike what is good for us as we dislike abstaining from fulfilling our desires.
Allah, The Exalted says, “Oh ye who believe! Take not my enemies and yours as friends. (Or protectors), -offering them (your) love, even though. They have rejected the truth that has come to you, and have (on the contrary) driven out the Messenger and yourselves (from your homes) (simply) because you believe in Allah, your Lord. If ye have come out to strive in my way and to seek My Good Pleasure, showing friendship unto them in secret: for I know full well all that you conceal and all that you reveal. And any of you that does this has strayed from the straight path.” Surat Al-Mumtahana, Iyat 1
Oh ye believers turn not your brethren over to the disbelievers. For surely they will never be dealt with justly. Would anyone have his own son be tried unjustly? If any brethren have transgressed the limits of our Lord, he should remain in the hands of the Muslims to be given a just trial. For surely Allah is aware of all we do. Oh ye that believe run to your Lord for forgiveness, for surely He shall run to you with forgiveness equal to your sins.
