News Right Now: Day One Under its Shield
Welcome to today’s News Right Now – Day One Under Its Shade.
Allah (swt) says in Surah Noor verse 55
(وَعَدَ اللَّهُ الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا مِنكُمْ وَعَمِلُوا الصَّالِحَاتِ لَيَسْتَخْلِفَنَّهُم فِي الْأَرْضِ كَمَا اسْتَخْلَفَ الَّذِينَ مِن قَبْلِهِمْ وَلَيُمَكِّنَنَّ لَهُمْ دِينَهُمُ الَّذِي ارْتَضَى لَهُمْ وَلَيُبَدِّلَنَّهُم مِّن بَعْدِ خَوْفِهِمْ أَمْنًا يَعْبُدُونَنِي لَا يُشْرِكُونَ بِي شَيْئًا وَمَن كَفَرَ بَعْدَ ذَلِكَ فَأُوْلَئِكَ هُمُ الْفَاسِقُونَ)
“Allah has promised those who have believed among you and done righteous deeds that He will surely grant them succession [to authority] upon the earth just as He granted it to those before them and that He will surely establish for them [therein] their religion which He has preferred for them and that He will surely substitute for them, after their fear, security, [for] they worship Me, not associating anything with Me. But whoever disbelieves after that - then those are the defiantly disobedient.”
SubhanAllah, imagine this day; when the Ummah’s suffering finally comes to an end. The heartache, the pain, the tears and the blood –finally comes to its end! The Ummah finally has her Imam and her protector. No more bombs dropping above your head, no more fear of your home being snatched from you, no more loss that another one of your sons has been killed by the regime. No more! The day has finally arrived of which Allah has promised us! The day where security, honour, dignity and protection really mean something. The sheer happiness of the announcement that the Khilafah has been re-established, imagine! The excitement, the cheers, the tears of happiness and the emotion - it's a new beginning, a beautiful new beginning for the whole Ummah! An Ummah that has witnessed devastation, hopelessness and despair.. can finally have a sigh of relief, can be assured that the days of horror are long gone and live a life where she can finally see beyond the man-made sufferings she had to endure. It will be a day on which she can confidently believe that she is safe! and no one dare touch, harm or even look her way! As she finally has her shield! SubhanAllah!
The first generation and best generation of the Islamic Ummah were also living under persecuting tyrants, burdened by oppression, with countless problems. They were also surrounded by enemy powers and had a very difficult time in their realities. Yet with their full reliance in Allah (swt), their confidence that victory lay in His (swt) Hands and despite all the obstacles they faced, they believed and fulfilled the commands of Islam and they were blessed with being victorious over other nations. The Ummah now too has suffered for way too long. She has witnessed 100 long years without her shade – where there’s been limitless fear! From fear of oppression, to fear of torture, to fear of merely living in the way of Allah – all of this has drained the Muslim Ummah and scarred her deeply. It is therefore only with the hope and trust in Allah, we too shall be blessed and victorious, bi’itnillah, and we too shall have our flag of justice raised high, where no more fear will exist.
On that day, the day we yearn, there is no doubt we will see the beauty of Islam’s manifestations. The Shariah will be implemented holistically – from social to judicial to educational – all of it. Brotherhood will eradicate all forms of nationalism and racism, no white will be better than a black, no Arab better than an African, no Pakistani better than a Bengali – all will just be Muslim! No one shall be able to manipulate or be above the law, be they rich or poor, Man or woman, Khaleef or Dhimmi! Everyone is accountable and treated equally! Our resources will be ours! The people's! The Ummah’s!
SubhanAllah! This day will surely come and this day my dear brothers and sisters is not far! Indeed, the promise of Allah (swt) in any matter is not like the promise of the created, for it is never broken and it is never untrue. Allah (swt) said “Allah never breaks His Promise.” Surah Aali Imran, verse 9. So let us be a part of this noble victory and promise, by truly believing in the commands of Islam and fulfilling our duty and roles in bringing back the Haqq - the systems and laws of Allah SWT. Let us use this unique opportunity we have ahead of us, working to re-establish the Khilafah, where the honour in such work is remarkable, the ajr in such a path is incredible.
Let us remember these words
(إِنَّا لَنَنصُرُ رُسُلَنَا وَالَّذِينَ آمَنُوا فِي الْحَيَاةِ الدُّنْيَا وَيَوْمَ يَقُومُ الْأَشْهَادُ)
"Verily, We will indeed make victorious Our Messengers and those who believe, in the life of the world.” [al-Ghaafir 51]
Let us be those who Allah refers to in this Ayah. Inshallah!
