In Palestine, Palestinians are suffering. We’ve seen, we’ve seen the bombs raining down on Gaza and we’ve seen the most sacred, the third most sacred place in the entire world being desecrated in the month of Ramadan.
The most sacred of all places after Mecca and Medina, Jerusalem: Masjidul-Al Aqsa This is a place that has been mentioned in the Quran is being blessed.
It was the place where we used to face to pray, The first qibla /direction of the Muslims; Masjid al-Aqsa And that is why it should be a place of sacredness inside the hearts of every Muslim.
One of the ways we have become confused at what we see of this Ummah, that there is so much suffering and oppression is we see the political instability in the Muslim world as a sign that Allah has abandoned us. And on top of that, we see that when the oppressors and the enemies of Islam are strong and have military might, that somehow that they are the ones in the right and they are the ones blessed. But this is not correct.
A sign of political might; is not a sign of Allah’s blessing and love. And also being military weak and politically unstable is not a sign that Allah (swt) has abandoned us.
Allah says in the Quran, The ultimate victory is for who? It is for those who fear Allah (swt).
