We had days before where the world was enlightened with the spirit of deen ( Islam ). We had countless of people who left their homes, countless of people striked against the bad & evil doers . We had many people who had kingdom but preferred the life of a common man. Had wealth & riches but yet remained the life of the sahaba. Had enormous powers but yet feared that those powers doesn't do any unjust to anyone ( even by mistake ) so that they would have to answer Allah (Subhana Wa Ta'ala).
Today, the scenario has been completely changed. We muslim doesn't even know what a muslim is. This is due to lack of proper education. AL through we have spent years together to learn our academic, we dont even bother to learn our deen even for a short period of time. People learn very few things and they judge what is right and what is wrong. unfortunately, many beleive that living a lifestyle with that of the non beleivers will not effect anything.I came across a very interesting example as stated below
A muslim girl, who was eager to spread the deen tells herself that she fell in love with a disbeleiver and wanted to marry him. She states that her actual intention is bringing that non beleiver to islam and spread the word of Allah (Subhana Wa Ta'ala) .
The girl here forgot that she had broken the basic principle of what a muslim girl has to follow in her life ( hijab ), spoken and met with an un known person ( non beleiver ), fallen in love and then claiming that she is doing something good for islam. When we dont have light in our lamp, then how can we expect to lit others lamp with our lamp?
We have a bunch lot of examples happening in every minute around us. We are not aware of them. We see examples like this each and every minute but fail to realise them.
I know that all of us have right intention to work for islam but we have to first make sure that we ourself are not on the wrong track. It needs time and patience and if you need success in anything then you should really strive hard to get what you want and be prepared to face whatever come's in between, no matter how difficult ( or hard ) it is.
May Allah (Subhana Wa Ta'ala) protect us.
Reasons for devations from straight path :
Today we are moving fast stepping with the technology. But the unfortunate thing is that we are forgetting the ulemas who actually have strived hard their whole life in the way of Allah (Subhana Wa Ta'ala). Instead we would beleive a person who had memorised some verses of holy quran and yet he follows the lifestyle of modern world.unfortunately many take fatwas from these people instead of taking guidance from the ulema/ alim's. It is very much unfortunate to say that we think the way in which the non beleivers think.
It pains to know the fact that It was we who created sects in islam, divided the religion, created Bida'h, changed each and every thing according to our needs. Today the sacrifices of the sahabas , ulemas, aalims has no value for us. We want to live in this world enjoying each and everything ( as the non beleivers do ) and yet claim that as if we have done something good for islam.
Its time that we take up things seriously. change ourselfs, our ideology.Alhamdulillah There is no shortage of ulemas and alims in this world. Get guidance from them. Infact the are the only one who can guide the ummah today.
I am writing this with my heart filled with sadness, that what has happened to this ummah today. Does the sacrifices of the sahabas , Ulemas, aulia have no value for us ? does this is the day for which we had millions our brothers, sisters, childrens who had sacrificed their lifes so that the deen reach to us ? Remember that a person ( ulema/ alim ) who has spent his whole life striving hard to learn the religion & a person ( who is living a modern professional lifestyle ) can NEVER BE EQUAL.
It pains to a muslim when he sees two muslims fighting with each other, It pains when a muslim listens to music, drinks alcohol, does what is haram and it pains even more that we are committed to it ( we dont even feel that my muslim bro/sister is doing wrong ).But ultimately it will lead us away from the straight path and we will not have peace in this world nor in hearafter.
I request you all to build up taqwa in you. No matter what the world changes, yet you show Allah (Subhana Wa Ta'ala) that even through the world has changed, you will remain what our nabi (صلى الله عليه وسلم )has taught us. Lets repent to Allah (Subhana Wa Ta'ala) for what ever has happened till now but the next moment of our life we shall Inshallah follow our life with correct guidance and prevent ourselfs from the unlawful.
I pray Allah (Subhana Wa Ta'ala) , the most merciful to guide us to the straight path. And request you all to kindly remeber me in your valuable dua's.
Allah (Subhana Wa Ta'ala) knows Best
