Today, in our times, it is the fear of death! The fear of sacrificing your finger, your toe, a drop of blood! That is more honorable then any thing else. Look at us! Worldwide, look at our current affairs! Look at our situation! Look at the people around us! we are the most humiliated nation on the face of this earth! No doubt! Why? Because martyrdom to us is not appealing as it was to those ancestors, the great warriors that passed us, who lived around the best creature that walked this earth Muhammad Ibn Abdullah SAWS.
Open your eyes and look at the massacres. Those that occurred in Bosnia and Kosovo, in Burma, Indonesia and those that occurred in Kashmir and are still occurring. Those that are occurring today in Afghanistan. Those that are occurring in Iraq and in Palestine. Have we done any thing about this? Are we able to do anything? No we are not! Why are we not? Because our lives are more precious to us than doing any thing about it! Our brothers in Cuba, who are chained like dogs! Tied like animals! Placed in a 2.4 x 1.8 cage! Concrete base! Tin roof! Their orange suits! Shaven! Humiliated! Humiliated! Degraded! We are downtrodden and enslaved! Why are we the most humiliated nation today?
Know one of the reasons for this condition is that the Muslims have become preoccupied. So the Prophet SAWS said, “A time will come when the nations of the world will invite themselves towards you like a group of people that are hungry will invite themselves to a plate of food when it is placed in their midst. The companions of prophet SAWS were surprised and they asked him, “Will this be because we will be in the minority? Will there be only a few of us?” This is how they were thinking. He said “No. Bal antum kaseer!”. “No! You would be at that time in the majority. You will be a great number.” Are we a great number? Yes we are! We hear the Muslims talking about; we hear the statistics, 1.4 billion Muslims! 1.4 billion red matches! Nothing you can do with them except recycle them and produce more matches that you can strike over again when they are dry. Then the prophet SAWS, he went on to tell them why this condition would exist. He said, “Your enemies will have no respect and no fear of you.” Is this the case today? Has not the United Nations headed by the United snakes (United States) have not they invited the nations to form a coalition, a world coalition, a New World Order to do what? To select from the Muslims whichever they like, like a buffet. And they talk to each other like that, “What would you like today Palestine, Afghanistan, Kashmir, Somalia, Chechnya, Pakistan what would you like?” The question that they always have for each other, “What do they have? Why do we need it? And what we can do with it? So the Prophet SAWS mentioned and they do this bravely without any current consideration, no respect, they take and go and invade and rape and kill and massacre and do what ever they want to do. And after that they setup humanitarian foundations to invite us to their countries to live, give us safety, give us citizenship, to make us democratic, to make us feel real good and to make sure that we do not go back to those lands to change our conditions. So the Prophet SAW he went on. He said that, “Your enemies will have no respect; no fear of you and you Muslims would be like bubbles on the ocean when it goes to the shore and comes back. Bubbles, froth, foam, trash, scum means that no substance, you will have no substance and Allah Subhana waTaala would strike some thing in your hearts called ‘Wahen’. These were Arabs, they did not know what is meant by Wahen. They asked, “Ya Rasullah what is Wahen?” He said to them
“Hub ud Duniya Wa Karahiyatal Muat”
Hub ud Duniya means preoccupation, attachment, involvement, being submerged in the Duniya and Wa Karahiyatal Muat means hating Death. It means more than that. It means not wanting even to being wounded and not even wanting to be disturbed, not even wanting to be bothered. If being injured means to us like being dead then that means that, we have given up the idea of Jihad. “PRE-OCCUPATION!”
“Remember how the Unbelievers plotted against thee, to keep thee in bonds, or slay thee, or get thee out (of thy home).
THEY PLOT AND PLAN, AND ALLAH TOO PLANS; BUT THE BEST OF PLANNERS IS ALLAH” ( Quran 8:30)
