Why?

19361.jpg

What reason could you have for not fighting in the Way of Allah-for those men, women and children who are oppressed and say, ‘Our Lord, take us out of this city whose inhabitants are wrongdoers! Give us a protector from You! Give us a helper from You!’?
(Surat an-Nisa’: 75)

Why are some people in this world indifferent to the suffering of others? Why do we spend our wealth on frivolous and vain things? Why are there people who fail to show concern for orphans and who look coldly at oppressed woman, children and the elderly?

All over this world, we have been able to view what the camera lens captures from every corner of the globe. Having visited and lived in a third world country, I have witnessed the “rich getting richer and the poor getting poorer.” This seems to be so prevalent in differnt cultural “societies.” No person of sound conscience can ignore the dismal facts, and all Muslims must work together to remove the tyranny of disbelief over mankind as

Prophet Muhammad (saas) stated:Anas bin Malik narrated that Allah’s Messenger said: “Help your brother, whether he is an oppressor or he is an oppressed one. People asked, “O Allah’s Messenger! It is all right to help him if he is oppressed, but how should we help him if he is an oppressor? The Prophet said: “By preventing him from oppressing others.” 68

  1. Salam and congratulations. Finaly you started to write. I just found your blog now. 🙂
    Your concern is mine also. And “rich getting richer and the poor getting poorer” all over the world. It is what our world go toward.
    “all Muslims must work together” you know? It is my wish, my will and my idea. But it seems going to be just a day dream..

  2. Thank you Umm Abdurrahman for your lovely comment. You so kind and beautiful mind. Thank you again for stopping by and reading my words.
    I am not really talking about myself as a person in my entries. I write generaly and in this entry i just wanted to write a critical note about some nowadays writers who follow blindly something that they never could understand wt it is.Like one of my married coworkers who says she doesnt want to have child bcs she is under influences of Milan Kundera’s thoughts. Many of them (not all) like to ignore God and power beyond and they just consider on human being and his passions and by now they feel free to enjoy lusts. Pureness here is not just about religious concept. It is meant generaly virginity of spirit and conscience. Like when you want to sleep and your mind is not busy bcs you didnt do mistakes during daytime. Anyway we can also disscuss about it in field of religion for it is the final aim of religion to give peace and serenity and make us ready for a real pureness to be perfect human being! Based on the last verse of Sura Elfajr:
    “O’soul, in complete rest and satisfaction!
    Come back you to your Lord,- well pleased yourself, and well-pleasing unto Him!
    Enter You, then, among My devotees!
    Yea, enter You My Heaven!”
    By the way, if you still think this sentence seprate me from others, feel free to tell me, i will delete it.. 🙂

    Mashallah this is so very true….

    People forget about those suffering very easily sadly to say. Those who need us the most in this world seem to disappear within the cracks of society. Look at the Darfur situation and the oppressive rule of the Taliban… Subhanallah it seems the only time they want to get involved is when their best interest is concerned. The nation has really astrayed from the teachings of our beloved prophet Muhammad (pbuh) may Allah give us the courage to pick up the pieces and do what we can with our hands and resources. Amin
