THE PERSPECTIVE FROM THE ANGLE OF ALLAH AZZA WA JAL
“By Him (Allah) are the keys of the Ghaib (unseen and unknown). No one is aware of it, but He. And He knows whatever is in the land and in the ocean. And not a leaf drops (from a tree) but He is aware of it. There is neither a seed in the darkness of the earth nor anything moist or dry, but it is (recorded) in a clear kitaab (Book).”
(Al-An’aam, Aayat 59)
Even the change of direction of a leaf in a breeze is the effect of Allah’s command and direct intervention. Nothing – nothing – absolutely nothing happens in creation except by Allah’s command. This principle is a fundamental doctrine integral to our Imaan.
Allah Azza Wa Jal, in the Qur’aan Hakeem, warning Bani Israaeel (the Muslim Ummah of that era) of His stern and severe punishment, says:
“And We informed Bani Israaeel in the Kitaab (by way of prediction) that, most certainly you will spread anarchy on earth twice and you will commit great oppression. Thus, when the first of the two promises (of punishment) will occur, We shall send against you (Bani Israaeel) such of Our servants ( kuffaar) who are powerful (and brutal) in war. Then they will Penetrate (your) homes. And it (the promise of punishment) is a Promise which was fulfilled. Then when the second decree will occur (We shall send the enemy against you) so that they (the kuffaar enemy) could disfigure your faces and enter the Musjid (i.e. Musjid Aqsa, defiling it) just as they had entered it the first time, and so that they utterly destroy whatever they overrun.” (Bani Israaeel 4 – 7)
Among the armies of Allah Azza Wa Jal are also the kuffaar whom He harnesses into His Scheme to execute His decree of Athaab (Punishment) for an immorally rebellious Muslim Ummah who takes delight in gross sin, transgression, fisq, fujoor and kufr which Muslims flagrantly and shamelessly perpetrate. The evidence for this is explicitly mentioned in the aforementioned Aayat of Surah Bani Israaeel in which Allah Ta’ala describes the kuffaar enemy who destroyed Musjidul Aqsa and enslaved Bani Israaeel as Ibaadal lana (Our servants).
Thus, the heart-rending enactment unfolding today in Palestine comes within the scope of these Qur’aanic Aayaat. Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) had sounded numerous warnings of this type of disaster overtaking the Ummah in future eras. The sad and lamentable upheavals, the misery, anarchy and humiliation at the boots of the kuffaar, which are being enacted in the Muslim World are depicted in the aforementioned Verses of Bani Israaeel. This is the reality – Allah’s Athaab – which the suffering Ummah stupidly refuses to acknowledge, hence Muslims neither understand their diseases nor are they able to find solutions and remedies for the afflictions of destruction and kuffaar domination.
The entrenchment in the hearts of Muslims of the diseases of transgression and rebellion against Allah’s Law has so much disfigured and mutilated their hearts and intelligence that they are constrained to adopt haraam and immoral kuffaar methods which they stupidly and satanically believe are part of some hallucinated solution whispered by Shaitaan. These haraam, immoral zina protest marches in which morons, fussaaq and fujjaar participate and in which they display their clownish prancing, dancing, singing and howling, only serve to attract greater Divine Wrath and Curse.
The situation has degenerated to such an immoral gutter level that nowadays we find even Muslim women – faajiraat and zaaniyaat – frolicking together with kuffaar, fussaaq and fujjaar males in the streets, and believing that they are aiding the Palestinian brethren. These immoral morons – males, females and the munaafiq reverend of the NNB Jamiat, masquerading as a Muslim and a Molvi, march along the path leading to Jahannam labouring under the mammoth misconception of offering solidarity and aid to the brutalized Palestinian brethren. Participants in these haraam protest gatherings who claim to be Muslims, are in fact the worst scum, scoundrels and rubbishes which corrupt and humiliate the Ummah.
Allah Ta’ala has bestowed to Muslims sound Aql (Intelligence) for guidance. However, this bounty of Aql can operate correctly only if it is not deranged with fisq, fujoor and kufr. Even laymen, lacking in higher Islamic knowledge, are aghast at the public zina antics of the faajiraat and zaaniyaat led on to Hell by the Reverend Bham who is indeed among the Shayaateenul Ins (Human Devils).
The only solution for Muslims is Inaabat Ilallaah – to turn in repentance to Allah Ta’ala. Remorse, regret, seeking forgiveness and pledging obedience are the only prescription and solution for the problems and diseases besetting the Ummah. Iblees has erected an almost impenetrable barrier between the Ummah and Inaabat Ilallaah.Allah Ta’ala warns in the Qur’aan Hakeem:
“Turn to Allah in repentance and submit to Him before there comes to you an Athaab, then you will not be aided. And, follow that beautiful (Shariah) which has been revealed to you before there comes to you the Athaab suddenly and you will not even understand (what is happening to you).” (Az-Zumar, 54 – 55)
Neither is Allah’s Nusrat forthcoming nor do Muslims understand what is happening to them. The corrosion of the heart and the fossilization of the Aql have morally, spiritually and intellectually incapacitated Muslims, hence they are drowning in panic, misery and humiliation, lying prostrate at the boots of the kuffaar.
[ALLAH’S CHASTISEMENT WILL CONTINUE]
As long as Muslim rebellion and transgression against Allah’s Law continue, the Chastisement will continue unabated, and there shall be no solution. Those who are Muslim at heart – those who think like Muslims – those who understand that all these kuffaar methods in which the moron fussaaq, fujjaar, faajiraat and zaaniyaat indulge, are haraam and futile, have only one option, and that is silent Dua within the precincts of their homes, not even in the Musaajid.
Exhibitions of Qunut–e-Naazilah in the Musaajid defeat the very purpose of Dua. Nowadays, the method and manner ofQunoot-e-Naazilah are another mockery of the Deen. Neither do the molvies and sheikhs understand what Qunoot-e-Naazilah is nor do they understand its method of performance. It has become an empty shell used by molvies and sheikhs for self-aggrandizement.
Heartfelt Dua during the silent moments of the night is what we are able to offer. Whether the Duas are accepted or rejected, should not be our concern. We must accept that Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) has warned that when the Divine Axe of Athaab falls on the Ummah, the Duas of even the Auliya will go unanswered.
Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said that when we, especially the Ulama, abandon the obligation of Amr Bil Ma’roof Nahy Anil Munkar (Commanding virtue and prohibiting vice), then Allah Azza Wa Jal will appoint such brutal rulers over us who will show no mercy to our little ones nor respect to our elders. It will be only oppression, brutality and humiliation. And, that is precisely what is happening all over in the Muslim World today.
However, judgment and punishment (Athaab) are Allah’s prerogatives. No one can fathom Divine Wisdom. We are duty-bound to express our concern, grief and solidarity with our suffering brethren whoever they may be and wherever they may be, for Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said:
“Muslims are like one man. If the eye pains, the entire body is affected. If the head pains, the entire body is affected.”
So, regardless of how futile our supplications to Allah Ta’ala may be, and no matter how fruitless our tears of blood may be, we have to continue knocking at the Door of Allah Ta’ala pleading for His Nusrat. We must plead silently to Allah Ta’ala with our eyes and hearts. Prancing in the streets like kuffaar and exhibiting ourselves like baboons are not the ways of Imaan. These are the ways of kufr. They are apt for reverends and pundits. Allah Ta’ala tells and asks us:
“If Allah helps you, there will be none to conquer you. And, If He withholds His aid from you, then who is there besides Him to help you?” On Allah, should the Mu’mineen have trust.” (Aal-e-Imraan, aayat 16)
