Solace in the face of adversity

Innocent children. Bombs. Genocide. Terror. Horror. War. White phosphorous. Blood. Burning. Martyrs. Humanitarian aid. Grotesque. Pain. Sadness. Wounded children with no surviving family. The words have lost their weight. The images furrow deep hollows in the hearts of a global audience. We cannot look. And we cannot look away.

It feels so wrong to continue with day-to-day minutiae while the war rages on. Life continues in the world around the survivors and the martyrs, the death and destruction.

It is natural that it affects us so deeply. The Ummah of Nabi (SAW) is like one body, and if one limb is in pain, the whole Ummah feels it.

We take solace in the knowledge that everything is in the control of Allah Ta’ala.

“Not a leaf falls (from a tree) but He is aware. There is not a seed in the darkness of the earth nor anything dry or moist, but it is recorded in a Clear Kitaab.” (Qur’aan).

Muslims must turn to Allah Ta’ala. We have in the Qur’aan and Sunnah a clear guide, and take solace in repentance, in increased dua, ibaadah and zhikr. We must enjoin good and stay away from evil. We have to follow the commands of Allah, and endeavour to help in any way possible. Salaah with Jama’ah in the masjid is essential.

“There is no aid except from Allah the Mighty,” (Qur’aan). We must turn to Allah with obedience and repentance.

All praises are due to Allah. Lord of the worlds. Master of the day of judgement. Him alone do we worship and Him alone do we ask for help. We ask Allah to guide us along the straight path. Along the path of those who Allah has favoured. Not along the path of those who earn Allah’s anger. Nor along the path of those who go astray.

Ameen
