الحمد لله رب العامين الذي يرسل رسول له بالحق الفرقان. ربي وربكمو رب الذين بعدنا و صلوة و سلّم علي الرسول له محمد و ازوجه و اصحابه و من تبعه الي يوم الدين و بعد.
وَمَا أَرْسَلْنَا مِنْ قَبْلِكَ إِلَّا رِجَالًا نُوحِي إِلَيْهِمْ مِنْ أَهْلِ الْقُرَىٰ ۗ أَفَلَمْ يَسِيرُوا فِي الْأَرْضِ فَيَنْظُرُوا كَيْفَ كَانَ عَاقِبَةُ الَّذِينَ مِنْ قَبْلِهِمْ ۗ وَلَدَارُ الْآخِرَةِ خَيْرٌ لِلَّذِينَ اتَّقَوْا ۗ أَفَلَا تَعْقِلُونَ
And We sent not before you [as messengers] except men to whom We revealed from among the people of cities. So have they not traveled through the earth and observed how was the end of those before them? And the home of the Hereafter is best for those who fear Allah ; then will you not reason? 12:109
حَتَّىٰ إِذَا اسْتَيْأَسَ الرُّسُلُ وَظَنُّوا أَنَّهُمْ قَدْ كُذِبُوا جَاءَهُمْ نَصْرُنَا فَنُجِّيَ مَنْ نَشَاءُ ۖ وَلَا يُرَدُّ بَأْسُنَا عَنِ الْقَوْمِ الْمُجْرِمِينَ
[They continued] until, when the messengers despaired and were certain that they had been denied, there came to them Our victory, and whoever We willed was saved. And Our punishment cannot be repelled from the people who are criminals. 12:110
لَقَدْ كَانَ فِي قَصَصِهِمْ عِبْرَةٌ لِأُولِي الْأَلْبَابِ ۗ مَا كَانَ حَدِيثًا يُفْتَرَىٰ وَلَٰكِنْ تَصْدِيقَ الَّذِي بَيْنَ يَدَيْهِ وَتَفْصِيلَ كُلِّ شَيْءٍ وَهُدًى وَرَحْمَةً لِقَوْمٍ يُؤْمِنُونَ
There was certainly in their stories a lesson for those of understanding. Never was the Qur’an a narration invented, but a confirmation of what was before it and a detailed explanation of all things and guidance and mercy for a people who believe. 12:111
In these ayaat I take the fact that sometimes a set of circumstances that bring about within the heart of an individual a feeling of sadness or frustration or anger, good can come about from this. However, only patients will extract a benefit from a perceived harm.
From the time of my childhood until my late teen, though not continuously, I studied the Martial Arts. Part of training we are taught, among other values, we are brought to understand that a loss brings about a benefit through the means of a lesson.
Likewise, a win brings nothing, for it is via a challenge that the warrior learns. In the political arena a loss, such as for the Muslims, Jews, & Christian population who are firm in their practices is actually a gain.
During the era of George Bush the lesser (thanks to Ms. Roy for this moniker) the aforementioned populations, especially the Muslims gained a needed understanding if the public at large. The torture and out right xenophobic and nonsensical utterances from Bush regime made an atmosphere in which Muslims were allowed to openly speak to a respective audience.
Then during the Obama regime, we see how bad the level of xenophobic rhetoric has been increased. The fact that Obama is not rhetorically anti any demographic, their is no discourse between “opposing” segments.
Thusly I retract my notions about the election of Trump. I still know the facts about the mans impulsive nature. However, without the injustice he will bring to the Ummah of
Muhammad صلى الله عليه و سلم
none will learn our true greatness. The rhetoric of ISIS, which I by no means endorse in their actions, is not rhetoric at all.
The establishment of a TRUE Islamic state must be allowed to flourish. Why do so-called Democratic states resist it’s establishment? Why is it so abhorrent, if the value of the “right to self-determination” is something Occidental nation-states uphold for themselves and for the so-called third world, that the Khilaafah be re-established?
