🚑🚑 As 2020 draws to a close, everyone is hoping for a better 2021. However, a better 2021 solely depends on how well we navigated 2020, and what lessons we learnt from it. If we continue with our same attitude and behavior into 2021, we may even experience a tougher year ahead of us.
🚗 Admittedly, 2020 was a roller coaster of a year. Everyone, without exception, was affected by the Covid saga in some way or the other. This was either physically, economically, socially,
emotionally, or spiritually. Businesses, Masjids, Educational Institutions, Production Lines, Travelling, Leisure… Every facet of our life was turned upside down.
🕋🕋 What’s important to note is that did we draw closer to Allah Ta’ala during this year or not? Let’s pinpoint a few of the more pertinent issues here:
⛺ 1) Have we cleaned out riba (usury) from our lives, or did we plunge deeper into it? Riba is one of the biggest traps of Dajjal.
⛺ 2) Did we become more attached to the Masjid, or further aloof from it? The Masjid is where the mercy of Allah descends. Abandon the Masjid and there is none more wretched than you.
⛺3) Did the sight of so many deaths remind you more of your final destination, or did it make you cling more to your dear life? This life can be snatched in an instance, but the hereafter is eternal.
⛺ 4) Did you religiously follow the fear-mongering narrative of mainstream media and put your faith in masks and alcohol, or did you gain a better insight of Islam and learnt how Allah wants you to navigate such challenges in life? There’s no greater fool than the one who eagerly laps up whatever the Dajjali box TV spews out, without first examining whether it’s compatible with Islam or not. Allah is our ultimate authority in everything.
⛺5) Did we not realize that Islam has a perfect system of medicine – a pure and natural way of healing our bodies. Thousands were healed by faith, and things like Black Seed, Costus, Steaming, Vitamins etc. Have we not learnt that strong Imaan, healthy eating, prophetic medicines, natural herbs, immune building etc are our first line of defence before rushing off to be ventilated in a hospital in PANIC? We have certain cure in our system of medicine, but uncertain consequences in things like DNA altering radioactive vaccines.
⛺6) With everyone social distancing and donning the mask, did we not realize that our safety lies in Islam’s perfect system of modesty? Males are to lower their gazes, and females to cover up appropriately. Do we look more handsome in how Allah wants us to dress, or according to the forced Dajjali guidelines of raincoats, oxygen depleting masks, and absurd elbow shakes?
⛺ 7) My last point is the most painful. The Year 2020 was the most difficult in a 100 years, but it was also the most divisive. The medical fraternity, the Ulema fraternity, the legal fraternity, the business fraternity – everyone split into two. We had Masjid trustees who handled the situation well, and we had another group of arrogant and ignorant trustees who really messed up – even firing Imams and locking up the Masjid (whilst continuing with their own concerns), as if the Masjid is their clubhouse. These trustees should be overthrown and more knowledgeable people should take their place. If not, the Masjid will become houses of darkness, instead of light.
🧊 Perhaps the two camps are needed to be identified, so that everyone knows where they belong in the upcoming more tumultuous years – either within the pro-government/media/atheistic camp, guided by fake science (they will be in the majority), or the smaller group of discerning and thinking individuals, who put their religion and values before worldly comfort. It’s the seperation of the men from the boys.
🎯🎯 The fence-sitters will become thinner and thinner by the day. Everyone will choose which camp he or she identifies with.
🔥🔥🔥 REMEMBER, IF WE PUT ALLAH SECOND IN LIFE, DAJJAL TAKES FIRST POSITION. ALLAH RULES WITH COMPASSION AND WISHES PARADISE FOR US, WHILST DAJJAL RULES WITH DECEIT AND WISHES HELLFIRE FOR US.
