Faithful Muslims: Part 3 - A Once United Nation

Salam Barakah to my brothers and sisters in Islam,
On this third entry, there's something I want to discuss among us Muslims. Let's look upon the world we live in today...........Are there more suffering than contribution? Are there more poverty  than affuency? Are there more cures  than illness?

Our Muslims Ummah (society) today may all haven't notice how far Islam has changed over the past 1400 years ago. Once a Golden Age during the reign of Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) the khulafā' ar-rāshidūn, the Abbasids, and the Ottoman until the caliphate reign was abolished in 1924.

Can't we think righteously? Why are we blind to the truth? In this modern times, modern Islam, also increases its influence rapidly. Even so, these "Modern" Muslims are more inclined towards the Western Nations, their cultures.
I watched some videos once, about Western tools of propoganda and influences. They easily brainwashed Muslims through the medias, especially television, music, fashion and harmful ways of life. Whether we realise it or not, these satanic powers are mutating into several stages, for example the minds of Muslim women,  who was now more obsessed in stylish fashion rather than keeping their aurah in veils.

I do have not any prejudice against the Western Cultures, but I'm justifying the truth about them! We don't want people of other religions watchs us from every corner, thinking, "Hey, that Muslim is exposing her hair. And it the dyed gives too much of pink colour."

See that? Or, "It's Friday today. Why is that Muslim man not at the mosque like his fellow brethren?" or "Hmph! Why should I convert to Islam when their ways of life is the same as mine?"

We want neither of  them to cross the minds of other people of different religions.

                                                           

Facing One Qiblah


So, we must all work together to gain back the peace and right we Muslims should all have. After al, even when we are all separated across the globe, aren't we all facing the one qiblah?






I found this poem from a website. It's really beautiful, and I like us all to think about it. Farewell...........



Unity
By Imran Ali
This life, full of pain, full of lies, full of death...
We live for desires, 'till the last of our breath...
This life is so tempting, this life full of Fitnah...
And so the path to Jannaah becomes thinner and thinner...
On the Day of Judgement, on that Day of Eternity...
We will walk the path, to reach our serenity...
For the faithful and pious, will be vast and to spare...
However for the evil, will be thin as a hair...
So, what do you have to say...?
"I feel its too hard and I guess its just me...
But there's not enough time in the day, you see..."



"There's work, and school and duties at home...
There's so much going on, that won't leave me alone..."
"And even when I can, I feel so strange...
Most of my friends, well, they've changed..."
"I'm without support, and my faith is depleting...
How can I pray, when I feel so demeaning...?"

"My Brother, my Sister, your so called friends...
Are none of the sort, if they can't make amends..."



"And are they true Muslims, if they cannot share...
Your strive in Imaan, and modesty's care...?"
"You're true friends, brothers and sisters alike...
Are the Ummah of Islam, who share your strife..."
"For they are the caring, who share your struggle...
But Muslims are strong, and strive through the rubble..."

So what does this mean...?
It means we must unite, and never part ways...
For Imaan is the structure, that shelters our days...
Appearances may differ, and so may the lands...
But Islam is our paint, and our brush is Imaan...
We may lose our friends, and we may lose obsessions...
We may lose desires, and materialistic possessions...
But take my hand, and together we'll see...
How we, Brothers and Sisters, form a Unity...
