Filed under: Solution To Our Problems
Today we are trying to solve the problems of Kashmir, Somalia, Bosnia, Albania and Palestine. Here is the solution! If Allah Ta’aalaa is our friend, (if we strive as an Ummah and make friendship with Allah), then there are glad tidings for us in this world and in the Hereafter. If Allah is ours, then this world is ours and the Hereafter is ours. An Urdu poet has very beautifully said:
If you (Allah) are not mine, then nothing is mine
If you are mine then everything is mine – the heavens are mine, the earth is mine
If Allah is not mine then nothing is mine. I have a Mercedes but if my relationship with
Allah is not strong then that Mercedes cannot profit me in this world or the Hereafter. I am a millionaire, I own factories, I am a political leader, I am a community leader, but my relationship with Allah is not strong, then these worldly positions cannot give me success, neither in this world nor in the Hereafter. How beautifully it has been said.
If you are not mine then nothing is mine; if you are mine then everything is mine, the heavens are mine and the universe is mine. If Allah is ours then everything is ours. The solution to our problems – the problems of the Muslim Ummah – is to make friendship with Allah Ta’aalaa through adopting Taqwaa.
