And here i thought when Obama won AGAIN this year, the world has taken a step forward. AND THEN; when Israel and Hamas agree to truce after eight days of attacks in which 162 Palestinians and five Israelis were killed, I THOUGHT we had taken another step forward.
Apparently i was wrong. People are still as uncivilized and barbaric as we use to be, like in the reigns of Romans where there were PEOPLE, and there were SLAVES. There was, ( still is) stigmatization back then. It is still here today. I HONESTLY DO NOT UNDERSTAND WHY IS THERE A NEED FOR LABELS? SHOULD WE ALL BE WALKING AROUND WITH A BRAND TAG SEWN TO OUR BACKS THEN?
Can't people, EVER just be people?
I know, for some this might just be another petty issue & unimportant topic at times of crucial moments like today. But, isn't these small things, what makes us who we are. Our beliefs are in alignment to who we are. Indirectly a reflection of ourselves.
People can go about talking about WORLD POLITICS, improving your IMAN or TAUHID; but if you cannot straighten out such a simple issue like this, then you are in deeper sh** than you thought you were. You can't just superficially dress a wound, if the cut is deep and infected. You need to prescribe some antibiotic (orally) kill all the organisms form inside. Let the wound heal, from the inside-out. (the doctor in me giving an analogy)
I know this is some LAME BLABBERING, probably the connection is far-fetched for some of you (LOL). But at the end of the day, it's AN ENORMOUS TRUTH THAT CANNOT BE REFUTED. We LABEL people everyday.
Allah (SWT) says in Surat Al-Hujurat, "O Mankind! We have created you from a male and female, and made you into nations and tribes, that you may know one another. Verily, the most honorable of you in the sight of Allah is he who has most Taqwa among of you. Verily, Allah is All-Knowing, All-Aware." Noble Qur'an (49:13)
Allah stated; that we are all equal.
(At the end of this; for those people out there who cannot understand why younger man marries older women, it's only because they are listening to what Allah is saying. Everyone is equal, OLD OR YOUNG- EXCEPT FOR THEIR TAQWA-so; WHY SHOULD IT MATTER to you?)
