Understanding Divine Wisdom
So, why oh why, did Allah reveal this glorious Qur’an to such a … (nose wrinkled in genuine dismay) … barbaric people – the Arabs?
Answer: When the decedents of Prophet Ishaaq [Isaac] alaihissallaam (AS), failed to honour their covenant with Allah, Allah gave the task over to their lowly brethren – the people of Prophet Ishmaeel [Ismail] (AS).
It was a tight slap in the face – pat-taas!
Although the most barbaric people on the face of the earth, they were also the most capable folk to be entrusted with protecting the Speech of Allah (Qur’aan) – literally with their lives. So that goody-two-shoes types like you and me, could have access to the Noble Qur’aan – 1,400 years later – across the shores and far away in another land – in the comfort of our modern homes.
Yet another significance, in the glorious Qur’aan being revealed to the worst of people, is that in that alone is a sign – for those who think, ponder and reflect. If the Qur’aan can raise the ‘worst’ to the ‘best,’ then it IS the solution for you and me.
Covenant Between Friends
The slaughter of the Arabs is a done deal: Ibraheem [Abraham] (AS) – ‘the friend of God (Kaleelullah) – made this covenant with Allah donkeys’ ears ago – when he agreed to sacrifice his eldest son, Ishmaeel (AS).
The Prophet, sallallaahu alaihi wassallaam (SAW), was explicit – once the sword was raised against the Arabs, it would not be put down.
What irony – the Arabs are dying today in fulfilment of a covenant with their Lord – to run the race and deliver the Qur’aan to the rest of the world – the very people who are killing them… so that they may receive guidance and restore balance to the world.
May Allah show mercy to the Arabs and Moors and reward them for their spectacular role and bless and raise the family of Ibraheem (AS) and Muhammad (SAW) to the promised ranks. And may revert Muslims fulfil their role – in taking the baton from them and sprinting the last lap to breast the tape and establish Islam (peace) on earth once again. Ameen.
In fulfilment of the covenant, it WILL be the progeny of Ibraheem (AS) – from BOTH his sons, Ishmaeel and Ishaaq (AS) who will restore balance to the world – Jesus [Isa] (AS) as king and Muhammad, the guide [Mahdi] (AS) as Imam.
Understanding the Speech of Allah
Those who suffer from manic bipolar activity and take the Qur’aan 100% literally and those who swing to the other extreme and take it 100% metaphorically, are both offside – gona kanuway (bull in the drain).
Take the Middle Path and the broader view – perceive the metaphor in the literal and the literal in the metaphor… The various grey tones between black and white… It requires reading and meditating, reading and meditating… remember; read The Opening – Al Fatiha – for indeed, Allah says it opens up the passageway through the seven samavat (seven stratospheres) straight up to Allah’s Footstool [Arsh]…
As the last and final Revelation from Allah, Allah addresses Mankind and Jinn in one message for all. It embraces ALL the Prophets and Messengers and Revealed Scriptures (known and unknown) that came before it. It is the answer to unification and the cure to racism. Indeed, it is a merciful healing from the One God, besides Whom, none has the right to be worshipped.
Don’t take my word for it. Listen to what Allah has to say to you first, before going on a trip about what ‘they say’ ‘you say’ and ‘I say.’
Through My Eyes
I anticipate the prophesied one-third of the army that proceeds to free the world from the clutches of tyranny will comprise those who migrate from the four corners of the earth – having mastered their respective disciplines and reached enlightenment. They will unite at the appointed location and when they set out to take the physical and spiritual battle to the Negative energy on earth, not a land in their path will be left oppressed. They will be ‘balanced’ people who’ve seen the light and will therefore be guided and energised by the light.
Positive/Good Energy Vs. Negative/Bad Energy
The real battleground is located in the combined realms of the spiritual and material worlds. That’s why; Jihad begins with the nafs (self).
Those who obey Allah have access to His Power.
It’s as simple as that.
But I say come Dajjal, come – come and get the butt whopped…
High drama becomes the order of these days.
Aren’t we just starved for some positive action-filled meaningful theatre?
Besides, I really do wanna see Jesus Christ Superstar – Isa alaihissallam, do his thang – like Aang in Avatar The Last Airbender!
