Alhamdulillah, its been good being away, reading blogs…being with family, and getting the best of life without technology! It’s strange how information distills out into the world. How knowledge is so vast but what is known is so little. People content with being ignorant, and angry if you tell them any different. This world is not the fairy tale we once thought it was. I remember the shock when I realized the extent of deception, maybe there is more behind the curtains, but what has been slowly been revealed within the narrow constraints of ‘alternative media’ may be the tip of the ice berg.
This was the expression of shock…
There will be a day when the mountains are turned back into rubble and the terrifying earthquakes causing us to be gripped with fear. That day we are told, the earth will spill out all the lies and false information dispatched to the common folk. It will tell us all that was covered from us.
1. When the earth is shaken with its (final) earthquake.
2. And when the earth throws out its burdens,
3. And man will say: "What is the matter with it?"
4. That Day it will declare its information (about all what happened over it of good or evil).
5. Because your Lord has inspired it.
6. That Day mankind will proceed in scattered groups that they may be shown their deeds.
7. So whosoever does good equal to the weight of an atom (or a small ant), shall see it.
8. And whosoever does evil equal to the weight of an atom (or a small ant), shall see it.
Surah 99, the Earthquake.
So this is the only consolation to the shocking injustices in this upside-down world. What can we do? We have no Khilafa? This Ummah left in the cold is being savagely attacked from every corner. Even within ourselves. Mashallah, the Boycott of Israeli and Zionist goods are now causing a wave of awareness. We are funding the beast. Tesco, Nestle, Starbucks, McDonalds, Johnson and Johnson…and the list goes on. Not only do they give Israel so generously, they have impressed Israel to the extent that it has to give awards such as the Jubilee Award for outstanding generosity. Asthagfirullah! We can do what we can, Inshalaah.
The hadith that says "He among you who sees a "munkar" ( something not good ) should change it with his hand ( activism, organization, movement ). If he can not do that, then with his tongue ( by speaking out against it ). If he can not do that, then within his heart ( by always disliking what is evil or harmful ) and that ( the last option ) is the weakest ( or lowest ) of faith".
So with that I applaud all the bloggers raising awareness. However, something always happens. When you believe in something, the ones who are attracted to you are those who have the same views. There is a whole bunch of people out there blissfully ignorant and need a big fat wake up call. I try with my facebook friends but, I am a conspiracy theorist to them, I really don’t care! Any new ways and ideas to raise the awareness, or raise the ‘care’ levels are desperately needed especially for the youth of today.
Videos like this are a ray of hope. May Allah bless the many that fight for the truth. And may He open the hearing and sight of those who do not know.
