Hitherto, not a single Muslim individual or organization has commented Islamically on the New Zealand massacre. All of them, without a single exception, have displayed bootlicking attitudes, lack of understanding, lack of valid Ilm of the Deen, and all of them have excised the Decree of Allah Azza Wa Jal from the equation. The tragedy is not being viewed in the light of the Qur’aan and Hadith.
All of these bootlickers are like a man who commits a crime then blames the devil. Or they see their ugly forms and snouts in a mirror, and blame the mirror. Or they revile the earthquake, the flood and the hurricane for the destruction wrought. The mind is furthest from Allah Ta’ala. In fact, even when the calamity strikes, shadows of others are blamed. The actual Cause of the calamities never even crosses their minds, yet they profess to be Muslims.
This lamentable state of the Muslim’s mind is not restricted to the ignorant masses. Today almost all the Ulama are like the awaam (like stupid cattle just as the general public). Instead of having the ability to guide Muslims, these ulama jump on to the bandwagon initiated by the ignorant public. Then they toe the same stupid line and relegate Allah Azza Wa jal into the background or into oblivion.
What is the cause of misfortune, calamity and the like? According to Islam, in so far as the masses are concerned, it is a punishment of Allah Azza Wa Jal. ‘Masses’ in the context brings the ulama within its scope. The ulama who suffer misfortunes are also the victims of Allah’s punishment. The Nusoos in abundance substantiate this fact. Allah Ta’ala says in the Qur’aan Majeed:
“Whatever misfortune befalls you is on account of what your hands have earned, and He forgives much (of your sins which He does not punish).”
(Ash-Shuraa’, Aayat 30)
