We stand in world today without a support from anywhere. We have been searching for answers of our current situation. It seems unfair and unjust that we suffer while the rest of the world is at ease. We pray to God and most of our prayers go unheard. We seek one common answer that why don’t they get accepted. We are Muslims and this religion was based on pillars that should protect us and be just with us.
Till the mid of 16th century, we were undefeated and strong, the whole world knew right about us and without a doubt, they had recognized many rulers as just even to those who had practiced different faith but today, our strength is not the same. We are quick to jump in conclusions that, for the time being, satisfy our frustration but we don’t realize one thing that what has changed in us since then. Answer to this one question can solve everything and every puzzle because it is a track we have lost and finding it will change everything.
All the Muslim rulers of that time were not only just but they had made sure that all the Muslims stand under one flag regardless of their race and their lines were straight and shoulders to shoulders with each other without a gap. Over the period of time we have seen that gap increasing and divided us into hundreds different type. Today we are quick to judge our own brothers by the way they pray, not by their intentions or deeds they have good in them. We were given a gift of a Muslim land and we were given a gift of being Muslim but we have abused this blessing to the point that our prayers go unheard. One thing we don’t have today is unity. Next time you go to the mosque, observe the row during prayer and you will see how much distance we have created between us.
We prefer prayer mats over prayers, we prefer silk covering The Holy Quran over reading and learning it. We prefer our comfort over others and most of all we prefer ourselves in everything over others. Everything has a reaction and when one thinks of himself in everyday work and ignore others comfort, it tear our unity apart, it creates differences and most of all it defies everything our religion has taught us. This religion was created so we didn’t have to follow what our forefathers had followed but instead do our research, unite and be just with others. We stand in world and claim to be Muslims but look around, are we really? Our actions are different than what we preach and our actions have created only differences.
We break laws and act as we have achieved a milestone. How can our prayers be heard if we act wrong and be proud about it? It is indeed heartbreaking that after having knowledge of what we are doing wrong yet we stick to it. If we just change ourselves and do things exactly the way Islam teaches us and stand side by side of our brother, Our prayers will start getting heard again and we will rise again as a force that would be fair and strong. We need to judge ourselves before judging others because we all have so much wrong that has brought this unfair situation upon us.
