Leave the body, take the mind...the new warfare, the worst warfare...Ghazwatul Fikhri (ideological warfare) courtesy the media and the entertainment industry.
So a lot now see good people as evil and evil people as good.
A lot are lost in the abyss of identity crisis. They imbibe immoral cultures not because they love the displaying of their nudity but in order to 'fit-in' they need to do that.
Well, if 'fitting-out' will make the world see the sincere Muslims as being backward, uncultured, uncivilized and archaic, we are necessarily happy with the label.
Better be hated because of Allaah and His Rasul (may the peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) than be loved and celebrated because of Satan.
So they spend hours watching E-Channel and 99.9% of what they see is nudity, immorality and extravagance. So they now want to be like the Es and they dread Penabdul harping on it.
The lives of Khadeejah, Aisha, Ummu Salama, Fatimah, Zainab, Ramlah, Asma' bint Umays (RA) no longer please them. They now have the Kardashians.
Since when did our female counterparts start idolizing smoking? They hang out to smoke shisha, smoking away their integrity and modesty.
The lives of Abubakar, Umar, Uthman, Ali, Abu Dhar, Sa'ad bin Abi Waqqas, AbdurRahman bin 'Auf no longer pleae them, they now have Cristiano Ronaldo, Messi, Rooney, Kanye West, Jay-Z…movie stars
"You will be resurrected in the rank of those whom you love." Hadith
Can't you see that we need to rearrange most of our thought patterns?
Yours in Islam Abdullah Musa Abdul (Penabdul)
