Nafsiya Reflections: Move Mountains
We have witnessed in the past month in the blessed land of Palestine and around the world nothing less than what was expected of this Ummah. The true strength in our unity was uncovered. The whole body ached with fever and sleeplessness! All around the world, both in our Muslim lands and everywhere else, Muslims stood as one. It was a glimpse of what is to come.
The weakness of the Jewish entity has been exposed, and has shown its true colors, “A tiger made of paper” as they say. Attacking, beating, killing the weak, the bare chested, as the men of this Ummah stood with their heads up high, defending the Aqsa Mosque with all they could.
Years in the making has brainwashed us, giving us all kinds of temptations… and in a mere moment, all that exerted effort was extinguished as the light of our Deen, as the light of Islam came through. They were back to their Aqeedah, their creed, rather they were back to defending it.
This Ummah is one. You could see it everywhere, like never seen before in modern times! It was an eye-opener for everyone. We could feel the pulse of this Ummah, we felt together. The Ummah was prepared to die to go through those borders, to stand and fight with their brothers and sisters! It is not a victory yet, but it was certainly a slap in the face that shook this Ummah out of its silence and stillness.
مَثَلُ أُمَّتِي مَثَلُ الْمَطَرِ لاَ يُدْرَى أَوَّلُهُ خَيْرٌ أَمْ آخِرُهُ
“The parable of my Ummah is that of a rain; it is not known if its beginning is better or its end."
Our call for liberation of this Ummah has never been louder and our influence has never been greater!
[لَا يُقَاتِلُونَكُمْ جَمِيعًا إِلَّا فِي قُرًى مُّحَصَّنَةٍ أَوْ مِن وَرَاءِ جُدُرٍ ۚ بَأْسُهُم بَيْنَهُمْ شَدِيدٌ ۚ تَحْسَبُهُمْ جَمِيعًا وَقُلُوبُهُمْ شَتَّىٰ ۚ ذَٰلِكَ بِأَنَّهُمْ قَوْمٌ لَّا يَعْقِلُونَ]
They will not fight you all except within fortified cities or from behind walls. Their violence among themselves is severe. You think they are together, but their hearts are diverse. That is because they are a people who do not reason. [Al-Hashr: 14]
Their hearts may seem one, but they are divided, and times are changing. What they have worked on for years, in trying to break our spirits and in trying to make us feel like we are incapable of changing our circumstances, to taking back what is rightfully ours, has all gone to waste. We can make an impact now, more than ever. We must work to enlighten, enrich, and remind our glorious ummah of the teachings of Islam. Remind them who we were! Who we still are! Who we need to be to become once again, to free ourselves from darkness and oppression we have been drowning in! Free this ummah to be the leaders we were meant to be! Reminding our armies that they are the lions that will bring strength to this Ummah under an Imam, that will be a shield they fight behind and we will be protected! Reminding them of the promise of Allah, and glad tidings of Rasool Allah saw!
ثم تكون خلافة على منهاج النبوة
Then there will be a Khilafah (Caliphate) on the method of Prophethood.
We are able to move mountains as we have done before but only with the help of Allah, and only if we put our trust in Him swt.
[يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا إِن تَنصُرُوا اللَّهَ يَنصُرْكُمْ وَيُثَبِّتْ أَقْدَامَكُمْ]
O you who have believed, if you support Allah, He will support you and plant firmly your feet. [Muhammad: 7]
