VICTORY By Ahmad Bukar (Ibn_Islam)
It has been an affirmed truth from the beginning of creation to its end that however much the darkness of a tunnel is, there is light at its end.
When life throw up some challenges at us as we move in its circles, we sometimes forget the value of togetherness or the wisdom of our Most Wise LORD that created us a nation:
Individuals, fathers, mothers, brothers and sisters. The wisdom behind this Jama’a is to stand up for one another.
[Al-Hujraat, Verse 13]:
“O mankind, indeed We have created you from male and female and made you peoples and tribes that you may know one another. Indeed, the most noble of you in the sight of Allah is the most righteous of you. Indeed, Allah is Knowing and Acquainted.”
We are created together so that we may know one another and stand up for one another in the times of challenges and hardships but today, we cease to be brothers and sisters. I am only your brother or sister if I stand to gain from you. We are supposed to be united in diversity but are we? The true definition of unity exists not in our society.
Allah said: [Al-Hujraat, Verse 10]
“The believers are but brothers,”
How many of us would leave our brother and sister in the front line to die simply for our political or ethnic gains?
This disease that has eaten deep down our hearts is endless. However, we sometimes forget that those left in the front line to die would conquer with the help of Allāh, SWT.
They may be in an unimaginable hardship to which they lose hope thinking there would be no out! And then the help of the LORD would come. Remember:
[Al-Baqara, Verse 214]
“Or do you think that you will enter Paradise while such [trial] has not yet come to you as came to those who passed on before you? They were touched by poverty and hardship and were shaken until [even their] messenger and those who believed with him said,When is the help of Allah ? Unquestionably, the help of Allah is near.”
Challenges and hardships are but tests and it’s for a limited time.
[Ar-Room, Verse 33]
“And when adversity touches the people, they call upon their Lord, turning in repentance to Him. Then when He lets them taste mercy from Him, at once a party of them associate others with their Lord,”
Those tested will be in the situation as long as GOD Wish, but just because they are left alone to face the hardships does not mean that they will not survive and make it to the end. Surely, they will conquer and win the battle. For, it is a decree from the LORD of the the Universe to help the believers.
[Ar-Room, Verse 47]
“And incumbent upon Us was support of the believers.”
Thus; Alas! Amasa Firdausa Al-jannah was called to Bar.
My heroine Amasa Firdausa!
May Allah rectify our affairs, grant us victory always. Amîn!
