We are Muslims Wherever We Are

We are Muslims 

Wherever We Are
by Hazrat Maulana Yunus Patel Saheb (rahmatullah ‘alayh)

 

Wherever you go, the Hukm (Order) of Allah Ta’ala accompanies you.

There are many people who, when in their hometown, will be recognized as ‘Deendar’, performing 5 times Salah, daily, in Jamat and even standing in the first Saff, wearing the dressing of the pious, etc. 

However, when travelling on holiday, Salah, the dressing of a Muslim, and the Taqwa are also left at home. That which offers us protection is left behind. 

The person will be on the plane, watching films or cartoons or admiring and even flirting with the air hostesses. When at the holiday destination, he is sometimes at cinemas, taking a ‘survey’ of the casinos or even trying his luck on slot machines. Adding to that spiritual harm and damage, the person freely allows his wife and children to dress as they want, go where they want, and do as they wish – because they are on holiday. Inna Lillahi wa inna ilayhi ra`jioon.

This is a clear indication of the weakness of faith and hypocrisy of all that we project. We should fear Allah Ta’ala.

 

Holidays do not mean we throw Islam out of the window. Being on holiday does not give any licence to disobey Allah Ta’ala. Islam is for every moment and every breath of life. We are Muslims wherever we are.
