Allahu Akhbar, Allahu Akbar, La ilaha illallah, Allahu Akhbar, Allahu Akhbar wa lillahil-hamd.
"Allah is the greatest, there is no God but Allah, Allah is the greatest, Allah is the greatest, all praise belongs to Allah."
Today marks a great celebration of Eidul Adha in Islam. See, muslims all around the world unite in a uniform celebration,and today is definitely a great joy for all of us. 3 milllion Muslims are now gathering in Mecca, the Holy Land of Islam. All over the world, of all colours, regions and cultures, we are all celebrating.
"And proclaim the Pilgrimage among men: they will come to thee on foot and (mounted) on every kind of camel, lean on account of journeys through deep and distant mountain highways"
Yes, 3 million. Imagine, 3 million people moving in an exact symphony. 3 million people following a single Imam, praying together in the congregation. Those 3 millions are from all kinds of places, all eager and spirited. How did it happen-with all those colours, no racial slurs are heard, they all wear the same clothes-all white-whether they're kings, queens or beggars? They sit together, side by side, like friends, when one might be from Hawaii, and the other from Japan. How on earth, that this happened? The West had been trying to curb racism since the brink of time, and Muslims succeed to do so-without an effort.
"O mankind, indeed We have created you from male and female and made you peoples and tribes that you may know one another. Indeed, the most noble of you in the sight of Allah is the most righteous of you. Indeed, Allah is Knowing and Acquainted."
(Quran , 49;13)
Quite puzzling though, how it happened. We are all believers-not beliebers,seriously-, of this religion , which stopped half of the world from drinking alcohol. Arabs before Islam are the heaviest drinkers of liquor on earth, and when Islam came, they ceased without resistance. Heck, how could it be that way, when Americans failed to ban alcohol, even with their epic laws and superb strategies?
Do I have an answer for that? Sure.
Islam is the ultimate guide towards righteousness. It doesn't matter how do you define 'righteousness' , because the law of nature states that humans do have the same stand, on what is good. "Addeen Annasihah" . Or in simpler terms, Islam guides humans to be good. Yeah, that's it. Peace.
