  • Our honor is through Islam

    Ibn Shihâb reports:

    ‘Umar went out to Shâm (Greater Syria) and Abû ‘Ubaydah b. Al-Jarrâh was with us. They came to a ford while ‘Umar was on his camel. He dismounted his camel, took off his leather socks, placed them on his shoulder and took the reins of his camel and began to go down the ford. Abû ‘Ubaydah said, “O Leader of the Believers! You are doing this?! You take off your leather socks, put them on your shoulder, take your camel’s reins and go down the ford?! I wouldn’t want the people of this land to see you in such a state!” ‘Umar said, “If only someone else had said this o Abû ‘Ubaydah. You have made a lesson for the Ummah of Muhammad – Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him! We were the lowliest of people but Allah gave us might and glory through Islam. If we seek glory through other than what Allah gave us glory through, He will abase us (again).”

    In another version Abû ‘Ubaydah said:

    O Leader of the Believers, should the armed forces and elite of Shâm meet you in this condition? ‘Umar replied, “We are a people whom Allah gave might and glory to through Islam, so we will never seek glory through anything else.”

    Reported by Al-Hâkim, Al-Mustadrak Vol.1 pp61, 62. He declared it to be sahîh according to the criteria of Al-Bukhaârî and Muslim. Al-Dhahabî and Al-Albânî concur. See Al-Albânî, Al-Sahîhah Vol.1 p50.
    It may not be easy, you may not understand it, but you need to have the Imaan to trust Allah when life doesn't make sense.
    "Whoever intends eternal happiness, then let him hold tight to the threshold of servitude.” ibn Taymiyyah.

      Wa alaikum salam wa rahmatullahi wa baraktu. The concept still holds true, but the rulers of the Muslim world, and the ruling establishments of Muslim countries, are in denial of this reality. Instead, they have concocted a false narrative and fictional image of their "honor" which they parade about, and actually IMPOSE upon the people, forcing them to pretend they have honor, and that their IMPOSED prestige, dignity, importance, is genuine and true. This is part of the BIG LIE, especially here in Arabia and the Arab countries. a BIIIIGGGG LLLLIIIEEEE. And the lie might work against disbelieving masses, as Allah AWJ has said disbelieving masses are like cattle, or worse. But believers, and the believers of the Muslim Ummah, are not fooled by the fake images, the appearances. WHY? Because we have as the leader of the Muslim Ummah the Prophet (saws), the BEST OF MANKIND. And his pious humble excellent person shines the light of HAQQ and exposes the lies, the fakery, the fictional narratives and treachery everywhere every day. And so the matter here in Arabia is about SABR- hold out against the constant imposition of tyranny and lies. Keep striving to know the Haqq and seek to stand for Maroof in opposition to Munkar and to Believe in Allah despite all the fitan the liars and Tawaghit and Shayateen spread everyday, day after day.
      Allahumma, aranee al haqqu haqqan wa arzuqnee itiba`ahu, wa aranee al baatilu baatilaan wa arzuqnee ijtinaabahu.Oh Allah! show us the truth as true, and inspire us to follow it. Show us falsehood as falsehood, and inspire us to abstain from it.
      " Do you know what destroys Islam? A mistake made by a scholar, the argument of a hypocrite in writing and the ruling of leaders who wish for people to stray
