Oh, Oppressed…don’t be Hopeless!!!

Standard

The Oppressed-Peoples of the World have always been ignored… 
…from the Native-Americans and to the Australian-Aborigines…
 
…The Oppressor has used superiority to seize lands and horde… 
…the original inhabitants ridiculed for fighting their enemies…
 

…Everyone abandons them & the World has their eyes closed…
…just like what happened in Rwanda, no wants to be exposed…

 
…The international governmental bodies acting as power-proxies…
…used to favor some nations over others, in the interests of monies.

 
These atrocities stink of all of the blood-soaked concentration-camps of Nazi-Germany.
Ironically, years later, those who were nearly exterminated, do the same, no Humanity.
 
How can you possibly make claims to want Peace when you are waging the War?
It’s like pretending to be grateful for what you have when you’re greedy for more.
 
You want the entire World to see you as the Peacemakers… 
…but, in all reality, you are the merciless Heartbreakers…
 
…You are always very quick to play that victim-card…
…while you’re making the lives of the Oppressed hard…
 
…You bomb cities and villages, schools, and innocents…
…but, when you’re fired back upon, you call it insolence.
 
My People, from far away: don’t loose hope and don’t go astray…
…keep fighting, for the liberation, for you, Allah will make way…
 
…You must always keep remembering Allah in all you do…
…so that when your enemies come He grants victory to you.

My thoughts on Respect & Love:

Standard

Question:
What is the best way to ensure that you will be respected & loved?
Answer:
Never give anyone the option to disrespect you or hate you.

Ensuring respect is based upon a Prophetic-Statement from Muhammad (Peace be upon him), when he mentioned about the proper conduct that a Muslim must/should have, “The Muslim is one who protects others from his speech & actions.”(an-Nawawi) The reason why this is important is because to cause harm to someone, because of what you say and/or do, is something that Allah has forbidden, when He mentions, based upon another statement of Muhammad (Peace be upon him) that, “Oh, My property (meaning the Creation)!!! Verily, I (meaning Allah) have made oppression unlawful upon Myself, as well as between you. So, do not oppress one another!!!” (an-Nawawi). When we respect the rights that Allah possesses over the Creation, He will in turn, respect us. And, when we respect the rights of the Creation, then Allah will place respect in the hearts of the Creation for us.

Ensuring love is based upon a Prophetic-Statement from Muhammad (Peace be upon him), when he was asked about being loved by both Allah & the people. The Prophet (Peace be upon him) responded by saying, referring to attaining the love of Allah, “…to worship Allah, without associating any false-qualities with Him.”. And, he also responded by saying, referring to attaining the love of the people, “…to not violate the property of others.” (an-Nawawi). The reason why this is important is because when we worship our Creator properly, we will in turn, attain His love. And, when we honor the property of the people, subsequently, He will place love within the hearts of the Creation for us.
