Subhan’Allah another shocking news story. That’s exactly what It seems like – a story. So many times, tragedy against the world and most of the time, the Muslim world strikes and I’m left like I’m going to wake up any minute now… I don’t fully accept that reality is real and not just a sick joke…
No human being is illegal. The ban of Muslim immigrants and refugee’s is sickening. If the same ban was on any other religious group and/or nationality I would be equally sickened btw. As a Muslim, I don’t prefer the rights of my Muslim brothers and sisters, rather as a Muslim I believe in humanity.
And you should too. Just stop for a minute and put yourself in another person’s shoes. Step outside of the comfort of your own home. Turn down the music, put down your hot cup of coffee, look at your family and imagine, ‘this could be us.’
Families torn apart over imaginary borders and books called ‘passports’ and visa’s just to get on a plane. I am all for security and obeying the law, I don’t like to break rules but what I don’t follow silently are unfair, unjust and plainly stupid rules that are destructive.
Trump has the audacity to ban Muslim’s from America yet American’s have never been banned from Muslim countries. Dubai is on our bucket lists and we grow up to get Arabic tattoo’s yet we close our eyes, lock our doors and ignore the world.
فَإِنَّهَا لَا تَعْمَى ٱلْأَبْصَٰرُ وَلَٰكِن تَعْمَى ٱلْقُلُوبُ
It is not the eyes that are blind, but the hearts.
Please don’t be the one who Allah is talking about. Don’t be educated, well-travelled yet ignorant as hell. Open your heart to mercy, love and kindness to others. I promise you, a Muslim neighbour, teacher, friend or citizen won’t ever harm you.
It’s not enough to remain neutral. To remain neutral in times of injustice is to be on the side of the oppressor. Do something. Help someone, do something ordinary or extraordinary but don’t do nothing.
On the authority of Abu Sa’eed al-Khudree (may Allah be pleased with him) who said: I heard the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) say, “Whosoever of you sees an evil, let him change it with his hand; and if he is not able to do so, then [let him change it] with his tongue; and if he is not able to do so, then with his heart — and that is the weakest of faith.”
America teaches, “life, liberty & independence” yet that’s exactly what they are denying Muslim’s.
The signs for judgement day are becoming apparent but no body is taking heed. May Allah make us amongst those who are not distracted by this world.
