Can they extinguish the Light of Islam?

I begin with the Name of Allaah, the Entirely Merciful, the Especially Merciful.

Everyday what we see here or even on other platforms, is the relentless effort of certain elements within the general fold of Islam, who out of lack of understanding of what Islam is, have made themselves convenient tools in the hands of the enemies of islam.

The effort to extinguish the Light of Islam did not start at inception of the modern day social media and neither will it end at the end of this era. The good news is that, they have failed even before they started it.

Allaah the Exalted says: "It is He Who has sent His Messenger (Muhammad SAW) with guidance and the religion of truth (Islam), to make it superior over all religions even though the Mushrikun (polytheists, pagans, idolaters, disbelievers in the Oneness of Allaah) hate (it)." Qur'an 9:33

More than any time in the history, the Muslims are faced with the onslaught of incessant mental and ideological warfare. The ideological warfare, clash of civilizations, where the Muslims are faced with the influx of other civilizations that are alien to the Islamic civilization.

And now, some unfortunately, amongst the Muslims who have refused to seek for the knowledge of the Deen see other civilizations as true civilizations while they undermine the principles of Islamic civilization.

No matter how much those unfortunate souls strive to undermine the principles of Islamic civilization, they will never succeed because Allaah has promised to always raise from amongst the Ummah those that will stick to the truth even when people antagonize them.

Today on social media, you see some Muslims quick in making fun of Islam, talking about homosexuality, talking about atheism, talking about the moral compass of Islam. they scrutimize the moral compass of Islam as if there is no direction in Islam?

We ask, is it the same Islam that we find direction in or are they looking elsewhere? Or do they have two brains while we have one? or Is the Arabic or English with which they analyse Islam different from the one we know? or are they aliens from space with special comprehension?

The claim or the categorization of certain individuals under the umbrella of intellectualism is the greatest impropriety of this generation.

Unfortunately, it is some amongst the Muslims that are used as puppets in the hands of the forerunners of the Dajjal (anti-Christ). People that are opposed to anything religion, anything morality.

My message is not going to go beyond the following verses of the Qur'an that I will reference.. Qur'an 15:88-99

"Look not with your eyes ambitiously at what We have bestowed on certain classes of them (the disbelievers), nor grieve over them. And lower your wings for the believers (be courteous to the fellow-believers)."

And say: "I am indeed a plain warner."

As We have sent down on the dividers, (Quraish pagans or Jews and Christians).

"Who have made the Quran into parts. (i.e. believed in a part and disbelieved in the other)."

"So, by your Lord (O Muhammad SAW), We shall certainly call all of them to account."

"For all that they used to do."

"Therefore proclaim openly (Allah's Message Islamic Monotheism) that which you are commanded, and turn away from Al-Mushrikun (polytheists, idolaters, and disbelievers,)."

"Truly! We will suffice you against the scoffers."

"Who set up along with Allah another ilah (god), they will come to know."

"Indeed, We know that your breast is straitened at what they say."

"And worship your Lord until there comes unto you the certainty (i.e. death)."

Do not worry, whatever we sow that shall we reap when we stand in front of Allaah. There is no point worrying about the scoffers here on twitter or elsewhere. Allaah will deal with them. Ours is to relate the Message of Qur'an and Sunnah without any fear of contradiction.

Relate the Message of Islam without seeking for fame nor fortune, without fearing anyone but Allaah.

We ask Allaah to keep us steadfast on the Path of Truth. May Allaah the Exalted raise from amongst us people that will stand for the truth, people that will dare the status quo to promote the religion of Islam.

May Allaah equip us with the sufficient amount of knowledge, wisdom and patience to promote His Religion while we face the turbulence that is ahead of us. indeed, the coming times will prove to be more turbulent. It is time for us to brace up.

It is time for us to equip ourselves with sufficient Knowledge and Iman and ask Allaah to protect and guide us because people are fast leaving the lane of Islam even though they count themselves amongst the Muslims.
