We’ve all seen the pictures; we’ve all watched the videos. There is no denying that we are witnesses to these heinous crimes against humanity. Subhanallah, when a people before us were touched by poverty and hardship and were shaken until [even their] messenger and those who believed with him said, “When is the help of Allah?” The reply that was given was: “Unquestionably, the help of Allah is near.” Grieve not for when Allah planned for it, the VICTORY we all long for will come.
From many of us, Palestine is a heart wrenching topic. For many us, their agony is our pain. One of the verses that brings comfort to my heart is: “And never thinks of those who have been killed in the cause of Allah as dead. Rather, they are alive with their Lord, receiving provision,” So when someone dies in Gaza, don’t say we lost a Brother/Sister. Wallahi, say we gained a brother/sister in Jannah. Allahu Akbar!! May Allah grant us meetings with our Brothers and Sisters in the one and only blissful abode.
I have this theory based on لَا يُكَلِّفُ اللَّهُ نَفْسًا إِلَّا وُسْعَهَا (Allah does not burden a soul more than it can bear) Subhanallah!! As anyone might have observed, the People of Sham have been tested more than any other people alive today; this means, Allah loves them more. Allah chose Palestinians for this test. (Note: In a sense, this is also a test for all of us Muslim. Our test is TO GIVE preferably at http://www.HelpGazaNow.com) For the same reason why Palestine was chosen, another country wasn’t. For around 65 years, Palestianians have been fighting for their basic living rights. Subhanallah, which country would handle the situation better than they have? Which people would not let everyday injustice interfere with their lives and religion? The people of Palestine truly understand: trials, difficulties and tribulations are reminders from Allah. May Allah make this a means in which they attain Paradise.
Patience is half of Faith. And “Indeed, in the Remembrance of Allah do hearts find rest”. This is why their sheer strength amazes me. They understand, trials and tribulations are blessings in disguise. In my head, they’re super humans. To start with: The concept of Existence being Resistance. Golden!
In addition, I would like to shed little on their first nature if not their second. Subhanallah. They are warriors. Warriors who carry hearts of gold. I can sense that they seek help from Allah (swt) with bearing beautiful patience, knowing that nothing can happen without His will for Allah promised: “O you who believe! Seek help in patience and As-Salat (the prayer). Truly! Allah is with As-Sabirin (the patient ones, etc.). [Quran, 2:153]”. &Regardless of what life throws at them, they stay firm and don’t let their faith waiver. On the contrary, everyday despair brings them closer to Allah. Allahu Akbar. I can just picture them rushing to do good deeds when fitnah strikes because the Prophet (saw) said: An act of worship during the time of fitnah (trials) is like an act of emigration to me in reward. Subhanallah, this is one of the qualities of the Believer as mentioned in Surah Al Mu’minun: “It is those who hasten to good deeds, and they outstrip [others] therein.” May reward them beyond their comprehension.
Subhanallah, instinctively do they respond to trials as if they are deciding factor of their final destiny, Paradise or Hell! . Inshallah Allah will prevail them in this trial so the next one will be easier to bear. May Allah grant them Jannah and reunite them with their loved ones
But that’s just who they are. Let me tell you why Palestine will never die.
Palestine will not choke, no matter
how tight the Zionist chains are.
Palestine will not crumble, no matter
how destructive the machines are.
Palestine will not cry, no matter how
many deaths there are.
Palestine will not lose hope no matter
how high the walls are.
Palestine will not die even if victory
seems so far
and Palestine will not bow down to
Israel because their faith is in Allah!
So the question remains what can we do for Palestine?
Abu Hurayrah (may Allah be pleased with him) narrated, that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said: Whoever removes a worldly grief from a believer, Allah will remove from him one of the griefs of the Day of Resurrection. And whoever alleviates the need of a needy person, Allah will alleviate his needs in this world and the Hereafter. And Allah will aid His slave so long as he aids his brother.
So let’s remove a worldly grief from our Brothers and Sisters in Gaza.
Let’s alleviates the needs of the people of Gaza.
Let’s aid our Brothers and Sisters in Gaza.
