Love Is Divine
Share Love And Mercy,
Fight Hate And Fear!
Mankind Was One Community,
Devil Sowed Seeds of Disunity
Resulting In Apartheid.
(M. Javed Naseem)
“And hold fast, all together, by the rope which
Allah (stretches out for you), and be not divided
among yourselves; and remember with gratitude
Allah's favor on you; for you were enemies and
He joined your hearts in love, so that by His
Grace, you became brethren; and you were on
the brink of the pit of Fire, and He saved you
from it. Thus does Allah make His Signs clear
to you, that you may be guided.”
Man was created by the Almighty God as a very intelligent creature but at the same time weak enough to surrender to desire and temptation. A qualifying point of merit was established and it was declared that anybody who reached that point in his/her life was the real human being in front of whom the angel prostrated. That merit level (or point) is called ‘righteousness’. A human will be judged on that scale, here in this world, as well as in the Hereafter. ‘The higher the level of righteousness, the higher the place (reward) in paradise’, was the measure set to judge us.
Unfortunately, with the exception of a few, we failed this test each and every time – meaning during every Prophet’s time and reign. Man has become a beast and with a little bit of power, authority or money, becomes a tyrant forgetting God and His creation. We humans always suffer at the hands of other humans. Why? Because we don’t abide by the principles of honesty and integrity. We always violate other people’s rights due to selfishness and greed. We don’t give others the same rights we enjoy!
Bible: The Golden Rule:
“Therefore, whatever you want men to do
to you, do also to them, for this is the
Law and the Prophets.”
Mankind is like one family, one community, one nation. It’s only a small group of evil-spirited people who want the hegemony of the world for its wealth and natural resources. They are spreading hate and Islamophobia to divide and conquer nations. Allah says in the Quran:
“Verily, this brotherhood of yours
is a single brotherhood, and I am
your Lord and Cherisher. Therefore,
serve Me (and no other).”
There are people holding the positions of power, authority and influence who are not well-educated. They don’t understand the purpose of their creation and the value of humanity. They want control and power. These are the evil people who spread hate, racism, discrimination, Islamophobia or apartheid. They are everywhere! The dishonest biased Zionist media is supporting their hate campaign for money. They are the Devil’s disciples and Prophet Jesus talked about them.
Prophet Jesus said:
“Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites!
For you pay tithe of mint and anise and cummin,
and have neglected the weightier matters of the
law: justice and mercy and faith. These you ought
to have done, without leaving the others undone.”
People say that difference of opinion is healthy. Well, it is healthy as long as it stays with the people holding the opinion and does not spread. If it spreads, it creates disunity resulting in chaos and sectarianism. Different opinions should be heard and discussed in order to reach a decision but once a decision is reached, all people should respect it and abide by it. Other opinions should be buried at that point.
Difference of opinion is fine but division,
disunity and sectarianism come from the
teachings of the Devil; and the disciples or
friends of Devil keep promoting it. Even
after centuries of bloodshed, apartheid
and wars, man did not learn how to live
with peace and harmony in a society!
The Quran says:
“The Believers are but a single brotherhood; so make peace and reconciliation between your two (contending) brothers; and fear Allah, that you may receive Mercy.” – (al-Quran 49:10)
The Bible says:
“But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, willing to yield, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality and without hypocrisy.” (James 3:17).
“Finally, all of you be of one mind, having compassion for one another; love as brothers, be tenderhearted, be courteous; not returning evil for evil or reviling for reviling, but on the contrary blessing, knowing that you were called to this, that you may inherit a blessing.” (1-Peter 3:8-9).
“Let not mercy and truth forsake you; bind them around your neck, write them on the tablet of your heart, and so find favor and high esteem in the sight of God and man.” (Proverbs 3:3-4).
Love is an ocean with no limits and if you drown in it, you’ll live forever – in the hearts of others whom you loved. You can’t see love, just like you can’t see Allah. But you can feel love the same way you can feel Allah everywhere. Allah is infinite Love and Mercy. And if you have these virtues in your heart, you are blessed because they come from Him. It also means that you are connected with the Infinite.
Narrated Jabir bin Abdullah:
The Prophet (s.a.w.) said: “He who is not merciful to others, will not be treated mercifully.” – (Bukhari, Vol 8, Book 73, No.42).
Love and mercy originate from Allah. We, being His creation, need love and mercy not only from Him but also from the fellow human beings. This is something that binds us together. Our children also need love, affection and special attention – actually more than the adults. So, bring up your children with honesty, integrity, sense of responsibility, love for all, sympathy for the poor and the needy.
According to a Hadith, narrated Abu Huraira:
Allah’s Apostle kissed Hassan bin Ali while Aqra bin Habis Al-Tamim was sitting beside him. Aqra said,
“I have ten children and I have never kissed anyone of them.”
Allah’s Apostle cast a look at him and said: “Whoever is not merciful to others will not be treated mercifully.” – (Bukhari, Vol 8, Book 73, No.26).
The Bible says:
“Blessed are the merciful, for they shall
obtain mercy.” – (Matthew 5:7).
In this world, we need each other. We need love to survive. Each one of us is given a gift box filled with unconditional love from our children, family members, friends and Allah. There is simply no other possession more precious to hold than this. Do we appreciate and give thanks to the Almighty for that?
“Lo, your Lord is full of bounty for mankind,
but most of them do not give thanks.”
