Are we hypocrites ?

Why have we become such a insecure ummah from a fearless one ?  Constantly keeping up with the world is going to take us far from our goal ~ our Akhirah. We were once a race that was feared coz we believed in what was delivered to us from our beloved Prophet (sallallahu alaihi wa salam)  and regardless of any influence, we abide by His instructions. But today our state is pathetic ~ we are just a distant figure of what we should be. We have molded our deen to our convenience. We have convinced ourselves that a lot of practices will NOT, indeed get us into trouble. We have been mislead and we are misleading our future generations. Unless we hold onto our sunnahs steadfastly, we are at a complete loss, our future generation is at a loss. Our ummah is at a loss.

Look at the condition of our Ummah:
The non-believing women are proud of their nakedness as they flaunt themselves in front of the world, while our Muslims sisters are ashamed of their hijab so they try to wear it in ways that the kuffar will approve of it.
The non-believers jump naked into pools, while we are embarassed to make wudu in toilet sinks….
The kuffar take pride in their illicit relationships, while we look for ways to condemn early marriages.
The disbelievers take pride in their liberalized culture in which homosexuality, prostitution and porn are considered freedom, while we feel ashamed of our deen that actually liberates us from the evil commands of our nafs.
While the kuffar commit animalistic acts in public without the least bit of shame, we find it embarassing to pray on the streets.
If they are proud of their filth, then what is stopping us from taking pride in our purity?
This is who we are and what we do and the day we stop being apologetic for being a Muslim, the lost glory of this Ummah will return.

The 4 Wives.

THE 4 WIVES

There was a rich merchant who had 4 wives. He loved the 4th wife the most and adorned her with rich robes and treated her to delicacies. He took great care of her and gave her nothing but the best.

He also loved the 3rd wife very much. He’s very proud of her and always wanted to show off her to his friends. However, the merchant is always in great fear that she might run away with some other men.

He too, loved his 2nd wife. She is a very considerate person, always patient and in fact is the merchant’s confidante. Whenever the merchant faced some problems, he always turned to his 2nd wife and she would always help him out and tide him through difficult times.

Now, the merchant’s 1st wife is a very loyal partner and has made great contributions in maintaining his wealth and business as well as taking care of the household. However, the merchant did not love the first wife and although she loved him deeply, he hardly took notice of her.

One day, the merchant fell ill. Before long, he knew that he was going to die soon. He thought of his luxurious life and told himself, “Now I have 4 wives with me. But when I die, I’ll be alone. How lonely I’ll be!”

Thus, he asked the 4th wife, “I loved you most, endowed you with the finest clothing and showered great care over you. Now that I’m dying, will you follow me and keep me company?” “No way!” replied the 4th wife and she walked away without another word.

The answer cut like a sharp knife right into the merchant’s heart. The sad merchant then asked the 3rd wife, “I have loved you so much for all my life. Now that I’m dying, will you follow me and keep me company?” “No!” replied the 3rd wife. “Life is so good over here! I’m going to remarry when you die!” The merchant’s heart sank and turned cold.

He then asked the 2nd wife, “I always turned to you for help and you’ve always helped me out. Now I need your help again. When I die, will you follow me and keep me company?” “I’m sorry, I can’t help you out this time!” replied the 2nd wife. “At the very most, I can only send you to your grave.” The answer came like a bolt of thunder and the merchant was devastated.

Then a voice called out : “I’ll leave with you. I’ll follow you no matter where you go.” The merchant looked up and there was his first wife. She was so skinny, almost like she suffered from malnutrition. Greatly grieved, the merchant said, “I should have taken much better care of you while I could have !”

Actually, we all have 4 wives in our lives

a. The 4th wife is our body. No matter how much time and effort we lavish in making it look good, it’ll leave us when we die.

b. Our 3rd wife ? Our possessions, status and wealth. When we die, they all go to others.

c. The 2nd wife is our family and friends. No matter how close they had been there for us when we’re alive, the furthest they can stay by us is up to the grave.

d. The 1st wife is in fact our soul, often neglected in our pursuit of material, wealth and sensual pleasure.

Guess what? It is actually the only thing that follows us wherever we go. Perhaps it’s a good idea to cultivate and strengthen it now rather than to wait until we’re on our deathbed to lament.
