    Go with the flow and move with times

    It is a common statement for people who procrastinate in following the Sunnah and Shariah in their every day lives to say,
    'Man,just go with the flow of society' and 'When in Rome,do as the Romans do...'
    Hadhrat Thanwi in his Malfoozat speaks about this saying,

    "Judge Akbar Ilahabadi who was a very wise man once made a wonderful statement.He said that the commonly misused statement :we should move with the times is absurd.
    'The 'times' actually refer to our collective actions which are under our own control.How then should we become subservient to these immoral norms and fashions of society?' "

    The great Shaikh Maulana Hakeem Akhtar commented on this Malfooz saying,
    "Zamaana kya cheez hai?What is this 'time' and 'norms' of society that people are talking about so much?

    Should i tell you about time/

    The times are subservient to us,and not vice versa.We are the slaves and servants of Allah,and not the slaves of society.

    The society is made up of our good deeds and or immoral actions,thus it is actually we who make or break the society.If even one individual were to endeavour to practice the shariah and Sunnah and bring it into his life,then in fact this one individual would be reviving and contributing to these 'times.'

    Time is always the same,it is actually the individuals who change that bring change in the society and in the 'times.'
    Thus no believer should give up the Deen or the Sunnah out of subservience to the times.

    The prophet peace be upon him said:
    'He who revives one Sunnah at the time of mischief and immorality,he will be given the reward of a hundred martyrs.'

    This hadith shows that the virtue of a true believer is in going against the immorality of the times and not with them!

    The enforcement of Muslim Brotherhood is the greatest social ideal of Islam. On it was based the Prophet's (SAW) sermon on his last pilgrimage, and Islam cannot be completely realized until this ideal is achieved. '
