It is sad to watch any 5 or 6 year-old kid crying telling his or her story of how a pet cat died. But in this short video, it is even more heart breaking to watch a 5 or 6 year-old crying for reasons which just hard for me to comprehend.
Right now, my heart is shouting – “What should we do?!! What can we do?!! What do we do?!!!!” I’m guessing you do too since I believe most of us are humane enough to feel and share the pain. This is not the first kind of this video. We’ve seen footage and images of how kids, young and old were brutally murdered, killed, humiliated.. images that would make your eyes teary, hands and lips trembled… O Allah, accept them as martyrs.
At the same time, right now I am angry, furious and frustrated with the controlled media. Shame on you! I know my voice will not be heard just as the thousands of Muslims being oppressed all around the world. Why do you do this to Islam? You associated Islam with terror, extremism, violence and all other negative attributes that you can think of. Now I would like to ask you the same question as the little boy in the video – WHAT DO WE DO TO YOU? .........
To all my Muslim Brothers and Sisters, it IS hard for us to change the media. We have no controlled over them. But we cannot do nothing. I am not perfect myself. But I urge my Brothers and Sisters… please.. please continue to show the best of Islam. Spread words of Islam (I know this is also an outstanding task which I myself have not fully fulfilled). And please.. please unite and practice Islam according to the Qur’an and the sunnah. Seek true knowledge of Islam. As our beloved Prophet Muhammad S.A.W said,
“I leave behind me two things, the Qur'an and my example, the Sunnah and if you follow these you will never go astray.” – Narrated by Imam Malik
In the matter of Syi’ah, I am not going to argue whether the Syi’ah is Kufar or not. I am leaving that to Allah. But I can say this. Islam is about peace. Islam does not agree with destroying plants and animal, let alone killing of the innocent human being. In Islam, marriage is sacred to the extent that it is urge to care for the Nasab (lineage) and more importantly to not oppress the women. How is marriage according to the Syi’ah’s Mut’ah law does not oppress the women? Who will be the 'protector' of those women and children born under the Mut'ah law? ..........
O Allah, please don't let these hearts deviate from the truth. May Allah keep us in the straight path. Amin ya Rabb…
