Most awaited prize has finally arrived

Alhamdulillah…wooohhooo…yaaaaeeeee it has arrived: D I am like so so happy right now when the doorbell rang and I saw the postman with a big package in his hands, I knew my prize from Sufi Comics has finally reached its destination: D The absolute beautiful Arabic Calligraphy and the super awesome comic books :D And to my utmost joy, I saw that both the books are signed along with beautiful quotes written on them as well,
“Remembrance of God is polish for the heart.
~ Prophet Mohmmed (P.B.U.H) ~
“The wound is the place where light enters you”
~ Molana Rumi ~
I seriously needed such beautiful quotations.
From writing that Blog post for the competition at the eleventh hour till receiving an e-mail that I won was like one of my dream come true tbh. It may seem casual to most but for a fan its a big deal :) Sufi Comics, since the day I have first found about them, have been among my most favorite. Mainly because the whole idea behind it is very inspiring. Islam and Islamic values in today’s world have been quiet misunderstood. Even Muslims, particularly the young Muslims aren’t even aware of much of our religion and incidents related to Prophets, Sahabas (read: Prophets friends) and Aulia-e-Karaam (read: Spiritual beings) With the growing advancement in the world, Sufi Comics is a breath of fresh air as it has used the famous comic book medium to pave the way for people to have an insight about Islam. I congratulate them for taking the initiative and pray that Allah Subhanawatalah bless them with success and accomplishments in the coming years. For now on, I will be hooked to the comic books till I reach their last page and will be re-reading them again soon.

Why doesn't God do something

The following post is for a competition in Sufi Comics  

This country is a failure" "I don't know when the poverty around the world is coming to an end" "It’s the fault of the rulers. Obviously they are the ones to correct things"

Sounds familiar? Each and every one of us in our lifetime has either come across or ourselves have been caught uttering such hopelessness. We either blame the rulers, the system, some person and many of the times God as well for such misery surrounding us. By no means I am suggesting that we are wrong in pointing out the faults of the ones responsible but the question remains that have we ever tried to correct the situations ourselves? Have we ever even tried a little bit to come forward and take this responsibility on our very own shoulders? I don't think most of us would be nodding their head in agreement right now. To tell you the truth, I myself at one point in time was the same sort of a person who would just be critical about the circumstances around. I was circled by cruelty, bias, injustice and other malign practices and all I did was to sit at home and cringe about them. The best I thought I could do on my part was to post about them on the internet because physically getting into the mess to clear it was nowhere near my mind; it was more of an impossibility. 

Then came the day when I heard a Hadith of Prophet Mohmmed where he declared that, "Your leadership will be a reflection of you [the people]." It literally shook me from inside. I felt burdened and responsible for all the wrong doings that I have been witnessing for so long. It was the moment of truth, a moment which changed my view a great deal regarding life. It is advised to us from Allah Subhanwatallah and we get lessons from Prophet Mohmmed’s Sunnah as well that if we come across a positive message, it is advisable to spread it among fellow human beings which helps in creating a harmonious society. When I did that, I was so glad to see that many people were very interested to come forward and help the ones who are suffering. Before that I was of the opinion that not many would be interested to participate and take out time from their lives for people they don’t even know. But thankfully, I was wrong. It made me connect to different volunteer groups and with them I had a chance to become witness of ordeals people go through every day. To be honest, it’s really easy for us to just talk about them or sympathize but once you get to see that with your own eyes, you won’t stop crying. I don’t have much words to describe the kind of brutish society we belong to where some beings actually enjoy inflicting misery upon the weak. A whole lot more is needed to be done in this sector because there are millions of misfortunate going through adversity and pain and are in desperate need of support.

I just want to conclude by requesting to everybody reading this that its high time to play our pivotal role. We cannot waste more time and let the tyrant keep suppressing the weak. Bringing up an impartial and righteous society is our duty as human beings because God has assigned each and every one of us with the responsibility to help our fellow beings.
