Saudi Somali refugee situation
بسم الله والحمد لله والصلاة والسلام على رسول لله وعلى آله وصحبه ومن والاه وبعد:
There is a post circulating regarding the actions of the Saudi government expelling Somali refugees. A couple thoughts on it:
1) If it is true, then May Allah forgive the Saudi government for their transgression and protect those effected by this situation.
2) Notice how quickly the mistakes of the Muslim rulers are spread, even by some who claim Salafiyyah. Yet, these same individuals are quiet about the good actions of the Muslim rulers. But if you speak about an innovator, these people are quick to say, “look at the good he’s done”.
3) Are we commanded to want good for our brothers? Does this not apply to the Muslim rulers? Imam Ahmad was tortured by the Ameer and he still supplicated for him and wanted good for him. Al Fudayl said that If he had one supplication to be answered, he would make it for the ruler.
Also to this point, don’t we make excuses for our brothers? Couldn’t there be a reason why the government did this? Are you certain this article is 100% accurate? And this is not to say that there is no way this is true, or to make light the accusations, but these Muslim rulers are still our brothers in Islam and deserve the same treatment as anyone from Ahlul Qiblah.
اقول قولي هذا واستغفر الله لي ولكم ولكل المسلم انه هو الغفور الرحيم
وآخر دعوانا ان الحمد لله رب العالمين
Public perception changes. Universal Truth remains the same.
Don’t do, say, and think a certain way because of others. “A man who stands for nothing will fall for anything.”
Sorry I haven’t posted more recently
بسم الله والحمد لله والصلاة والسلام على رسول لله وبعد:
I’ve been kinda busy with some things. I did work out a couple times so I’ll try to get those posted (has anyone of you ever tried my workouts? Just curious).
I also have been thinking of adding to the personal gym (and by “personal gym”, I mean the three pieced of workout equipment I own lol) so I’ll post about that too.
I hope everyone has been working out, eating right, and living well.
