The law of Allah is Supreme

Law-of-Allah-jpgAllah is the Creator of the man and the system. Our Creator knows what system is best for us and what benefits us than ourselves. Just like the manufacturer of the Car knows which fuel is best for the car, but if the driver chooses to against the manufacturer’s choice, he may wreck the car and gains nothing.

A Muslim is a person who completely surrenders to the will and law of Allah. Muslims by nature adhere to the laws of Allah, and when a different law is imposed to run the affairs of a Muslim or Islam bears sour fruits, and we experience it in the Muslim world that rules by the man made systems. The law of Allah is Supreme over all the laws, and it must be established to bring that satisfaction and peace that our Creator has chosen for us.

One cannot establish the law of Allah and bring back Islam to its original state through the system of kufr (disbelief) which is all the other laws besides the law of Allah.  Water and Fire do not mix. The western societies and many Muslims are against the Sharia of Allah and  the problem being the lack of education. The best of the Dawah is education, and we must educate people about the law of the Creator, the freedom and benefits it gives to the mankind.

Many Muslims want to the change the system of disbelief by adhering to its laws. They want to bring Islam through kufr? That doesn’t make any sense, and above all it is a deception. We rely on Allah alone. We Obey Allah not the Satan, the biggest deceiver and the deception is from Satan. Muslims have no hidden agenda, we live by La ILaha IL Allaah, and we die with La ILaha IL Allaah and that is the supreme fundamental of the Muslims, to live according to the laws of the Creator, which Allah created for our benefit and of the whole mankind.

On the contrary, Democracy divides the world with the religion, whereas Islam is a complete set of Life, and can’t be divided into parts according to our desires.

Democracy is a man-made system meaning rule by the people for the people. Thus it is contrary to Islam, because rule is for Allah  the Most High, the Almighty, and it is not permissible to give legislative rights to any human being, no matter who he is.

Democracy is not the religion of monotheism, and its parliamentary councils are just places of polytheism, and safe havens for pagan beliefs, where as Islam is the religion of monotheism, belief in one Allah and adhering to the laws of Allah.

Above all, the Most truthful of speech is the book of Allah (Quran), and the best of Guidance is the guidance of Muhammad (S.A.W). The most evil of things are the innovations (in religion) and every innovation is misguidance and going astray.

Bangladesh Massacre

                    bangladesh-blasphemy                       Last night was the blackest night in the history of Bangladesh. Many Bangladeshis are saying that it is worse than the Black Night of the 25th of March 1971. The world witnessed another mass killing of innocent civilians by state forces in the commercial capital of Bangladesh. The whole nation became stunned and shocked in seeing the scale of the brutalities conducted by police and other law-enforcing bodies in disgusting manner.

Many eye witnesses explain that at least one million people were on a sit-in protest in Motijeel, Dhaka. At night, all of a sudden, all street lights were switched off and at 3 am thousands of armed police, Border Guards and RAB forces started firing indiscriminately with live rounds, tear shells and grenades at the innocent and unarmed protesters. The Asian Human Rights Commission termed it as a “Massacre of Demonstrators”.

No-one in a civilised world could ever imagine that government forces would begin shooting at thousands of people in the dark. It was nothing but a series of unimaginable atrocities being committed against humanity. I cannot begin to comprehend how a human being can order an attack on millions of civilians in the dark of night just to quash a protest. It is madness and an unforgivable crime against humanity. What happened in Dhaka last night is beyond politics. No matter which political ideology you subscribe to, or even if you are not involved in politics, it is unacceptable to any human being who has any ounce of common sense. It is humanitarian crisis.

The world must raise its voice against such heinous crimes for the sake of upholding human values. There should be no politics with human lives. A crime is a crime. Whoever ordered this atrocity and whoever tolerated this atrocity must be punished and charged with the worst crime against humanity.

Mufti Kifayatullah of Hathazari Madrasa in Bangladesh(Largest Institute in Bangladesh) has confirmed that over 3 000 Aalims and  students  have been mercilessly Martyred and the Firing still ongoing. Toll has reached 3500.

What is happening in Bangladesh is absolutely evil. I ask all to pray for the oppressed people of this spiritually rich land, which is in the hands of enemies of humanity. The Muslims will have to find solutions for themselves instead of expecting some kind of intervention from western governments. How can western powers help Muslims when they are behind some of the worst regimes on the planet. The solutions are with Allah and He has put them down very clearly in the Quran.

It’s Not Just about Looks!

Most if not all the people that interacted with Prophet Yusuf (PBUH) were not just influenced by his good looks but his overall character. Even the woman, who seduced him, did not do so just because of the looks. It was in her house that Yusuf (PBUH) grew up, and she was therefore familiar with, if not used to his appearance. (She past the ‘shock phase’ that led the other women who saw him for the first time to “cut their hands” ! She was a mature married woman (not a teenage girl!) and knew better how to ‘judge’ a man.
Those who dealt with Yusuf (PBUH) in prison saw in him other than his looks: “we see you one of the Mushsineen (doers of good)”. When the king saw him he said: “you are with us in high rank and fully trusted” because now the king was aware of Yusuf’s (PBUH) abilities, not appearance.

Mature men as well see in women other than their looks. Khadija (Ra) was beautiful but certainly there were others. Yet Muhammad (PBUH) saw in Khadija (Ra) what the women saw in Yusuf (PBUH): genuine character: “she accepted me when people rejected me, she believed in me when people doubted me, she shared her wealth with me when people deprived me”.

Unfortunately, we live in a celebrity based culture that emphasizes looks, not personality. I am not saying that looks should not be taken into consideration (by the way, even if Hollywood aims to create beauty standards, beauty is relative and culturally defined) but that character must take precedence when making serious judgments and decisions, especially as serious as marriage!

Inner Peace

If we have peace inside ourselves, it will reflect on the outside.Inner Peace Whereas, if we don’t have peace inside us, no matter how perfect it is outside, we will still feel restless and irritated. Without peace of mind, life is just a shadow of its possibilities.

Therefore, we must learn to love ourselves, in order to love others.

So, how do we do that?
We do that by Loving Allah, and Trusting that Allah Loves us too.

And how do we feel Allah Loves us?
It is by Recognizing Allah’s favours on us and Appreciating them. And therefore, Praising and Obeying Him, The Most Kind and Wise.

In other words, the more we Believe in Allah, more we will feel His Love inside us; and the more we feel His Love inside of us, more we will Love His Creation.

Therefore, it is a process, which starts from Loving ourselves and then Extending that Love in Every Direction.

This is Jihad

this is jihad

Jihad is a wide sweeping term that includes many aspects of being a Muslim and is not limited to the “Boogey Man propaganda” we often see. One thing to consider is the always promoted concept that Jihad is presented within the scope of war and physical fighting is a limited and a narrow view. Fighting can be verbal and even peaceful resistance is a form of fighting. Getting up for Fajr is a form of fighting…

If we use the often translated word “Striving” we can see there are many aspects. One can strive physically through prayer, one can strive mentally through education. Some strive through verbal actions of teaching and some strive through actions of War (offense and defense). There are many more examples that do not have any physical aspect.

Now, of course it does not mean that there is not a responsibility for people to “Fight” physically, even in the history of the Prophet (peace be upon him), he would fight when needed to, but would always attempt peaceful means initially and if a war broke out he would constantly strive for a peaceful resolution. (e.g. treaties and agreements)

So to isolate the word “Jihad” to one aspect and one aspect only is dishonest.
