at-Tazkirah: التذكرة

“And keep reminding, because reminding benefits the believers.” (51:55)

Surrender Yourself Totally

Hadhrat Maulana Mufti Muhammad Taqi Usmani دامت برکاتہم said,

“This idea has crept into and firmly settled on, our hearts that what the western nations are doing is worth emulation and the Sunnah of the Holy Prophet صلى الله عايه وسالم is – God forbid – an ordinary issue, unworthy of being followed. It is rather a hurdle and hindrance in the path of progress. Consider! What harm will fall on us if we take our food with the right hand?

Our malady is that the evil of slavery to the west has over-powered our minds. We have given up slavery to the Holy Prophet صلى الله عايه وسالم and become slaves to the western powers, with the natural result that we are living and dying in slavery. We have become entangled in this slavery so badly that we now see no way out of it.

The fact, however, remains that we cannot get out of this slavery, nor can we attain honour and superiority in this world unless we accept slavery to the Holy Prophet صلى الله عايه وسالم in the true sense and follow in his footsteps.”

    DAJJAL HAS BEEN IDENTIFIED!!

    DO YOU KNOW THE DAJJAL (THE ANTI-CHRIST), THE ONE-EYED GIANT PROPHECISED BY THE MESSENGER OF ALLAH HAS ALREADY BEEN IN EXISTENCE FOR THE PAST 472 YEARS & HAS BEEN IDENTIFIED?

    YOU MAY BE AMAZED TO KNOW THAT IT IS COMPLETELY DIFFERENT FROM WHAT IT IS THOUGHT TO BE TODAY. TO SEE WHAT IT ACTUALLY IS – VISIT THE WEBSITE http://www.hezbuttawheed.com AND READ THE BOOK “DAJJAL? THE JUDEO-CHRISTIAN CIVILIZATION!” AND WATCH THE DOCUMENTARY “DAJJAL? THE JUDEO-CHRISTIAN CIVILIZATION!”.

    I like the part “The fact, however, remains that we cannot get out of this slavery, nor can we attain honour and superiority in this world unless we accept slavery to the Holy Prophet صلى الله عايه وسالم in the true sense and follow in his footsteps.” because it is defeatist to say that the global arrogance will win when Allah (s.w.t) Himself has promised to restore Justice, Freedom and wipe out Oppression and Injustice when Imam Mahdi (a.s) completes his task of slaying ad-Dajjal. Allah (s.w.t) knows when this will be, we don’t but from all the hadith we know it is close so we all need to prepare for this ensha Allah. Truth always collides with falsehood and truth will always prevail and as much as these global-arrogants make plots against the ummah, we need to be firm and ‘hold the line’ as Allah tells us in Quran “Allah is best of planners”
