What was our response?
Was it screaming curses at Israel who's hundreds of miles away?
Was it a cry of despair?
Was it with a prayer?
Did it worked? What do we feel now?
Ask ourselves those questions. Have we ever wondered why and why Gaza is not granted victory to this day after more than half-a-decade? Whilst we pray and pray. Envoy after envoys sent. Treaties after treaties. Yet nothing has worked to stem the impending injustice and asymmetrical violence.
There was a statement I've read before from a Israeli official:
"Everyday we watch Muslims perform their prayers at dawn. When the Muslims pray in congregation the dawn prayers same way they pray on Fridays, only then we fear."
Dissect the statement however will bring a solution to the problems of Gaza and any Muslim nation at war.
وَلَنْ تَرْضَى عَنْكَ الْيَهُودُ وَلا النَّصَارَى حَتَّى تَتَّبِعَ مِلَّتَهُمْ قُلْ إِنَّ هُدَى اللَّهِ هُوَ الْهُدَى وَلَئِنِ اتَّبَعْتَ أَهْوَاءَهُمْ بَعْدَ الَّذِي جَاءَكَ مِنَ الْعِلْمِ مَا لَكَ مِنَ اللَّهِ مِنْ وَلِيٍّ وَلا نَصِيرٍ (١٢٠)
Never will the Jews or the Christians be satisfied with Thee unless Thou follow their form of religion. say: "The guidance of Allah,-that is the (only) Guidance." Were thou to follow their desires after the knowledge which hath reached thee, then wouldst thou find neither Protector nor helper against Allah.
This verse is directly related to the statement our Mr Rabbi just spoke out. They will never rest until Islam only becomes a noun not a verb. There is to fear, the conversion is happening. It's just at a rate that we become ignorant too and see it as negligible.
That is the real solution to wars occurring throughout the Islamic world. We are disunited and sunken with ideologies and principals that further deviate us from what is in Islam that makes us a Muslim. I am included, but I fight to win the edge.
Our prayers till today are unanswered because we are not connected to Allah. Our line to him is severed by our ignorance. It's not that He has not heard us but we are not worthy of His attention.
We still find a burden today to be punctual in our five daily appointments with Him in the best way at the best place but we demand Allah to grant us our wishes directly and spontaneously. Think about it.
Allah is not cruel, it is just a test, a reminder to whom we serve and to whom we seek help. Their deaths are not cruelty in Allah's view but a reward for Jannah, but the cause of their death is cruelty.
O' Muslims, to help the people of Gaza there is two that we must do aside taking up arms.
1. Pray for their victory
2. Prepare ourselves to be better Muslims.
A Muslim's best weapon is his prayer but what is a prayer with a broken rifle?
Yuslihlakum! Repair yourselves!
Then on forward we will shoot our prayers to Allah like bullets to the sky that finally He will grant our brothers in Gaza eternal victory!
