Silence of Muslims
“You are the best nation ever raised up from mankind; you enjoin the good and forbid evil, and you believe in Allah.” (Al Imran 3:110) That’s what Allah Almighty says in the Holy Quran. But I am thinking, if we (Muslims) are the greatest nation, as Allah (SWT) says then why we are separated, disgraced and weak? Why we hated each other? Is it because we make our enemies our friend and start depending on them? Why there is bloodshed every where? Where is our brotherhood? Is it because we make our enemies our friend and start depending on them? Why all the Muslim states are silent on Gaza attack? Then the reason came into mind is that we become slaves of our enemies and have not enough courage to speak against them. We are dependent on their donations. And this is very harsh but true reality. Today Gaza is burning and no one speaks against it.
No Muslim state stands for their rights. Israel continues attacking with them but no one came to stop that Jewish war criminal. The people of Gaza are salves and homeless in their own land. Israel has killed more than 200 Palestinians & injured more than 1,200. Most of the casualties are civilians, with large numbers of children and women. And still we are silent because strongest countries of the world and supporter of human rights said that they are terrorists. International Media turning over it like it is a war between two states. And we have to accept it because we are living on their donations. Is that Justice?? One of the bitter truths is that there is no more humanity left in us.
Even we can’t condemn these cruel attacks. The biggest Islamic state of Muslims, Saudi Arabia which is also a strong nation, is also just watching the whole incident and has not taken any step on it. All the strong Arab states are silent; even they are supporting them, because they love dollars. Gaza is the land of helpless people that needs mercy. More than 6 decades passed with the brutality of Israel on Palestine but the whole world is sleeping. The UN is silent just because people of Palestine are Muslims. America, who is the biggest supporter of Human Rights, is also quiet because he said Muslims are terrorists. It is more painful that no one said it’s against humanity.
No one ask Israel that is this justified to kill innocent people including children and women? No one came to protect them. Simply no one…!!! It is heartbreaking that after seeing all this still Muslim countries are not united. They are in deep sleep and selflessness. They don’t stand to protect their brothers. They don’t come up to stop the hands of criminal Israel. My question is, where are the humanity, brotherhood, love and union that we Muslims claim. Why not we feel the pain of our own brothers? Prophet Muhammad (SAW) said:
“The believers, in their mutual mercy, love and compassion, are like a (single) body; if one part of it feels pain, the rest of the body will join it in staying awake and suffering fever.” (Narrated by al-Bukhaari) But it is sad the Muslim Ummah is no more united. Their silence is crueler than those attacks. Now the time is to call Mehdi (a.s). Gaza is calling Mehdi (a.s) & Esa (a.s); they are being killed in their own land and no one else will go to help them. This is the painful story of Muslim Nation where currently no love, no brotherhood and no pain for each other. And it is just because they ignore Deen (Islam) and only start following the mortal world. And all this hard time is because of our own sins. It is time to pray for Ummat-e-Muhammadi to again become true Muslims and a strong nation so that they could protect their brothers. May God help Palestinians and Muslims……Ameen.
