Allah’s Flag Flies by Itself
Allah does not need us. We need him. Otherwise, he would not be God. And we would not be people.
Honor is to work for Allah. Only the privileged are allowed into that workplace.
Most of the rest of others are waylaid and kidnapped by Shaitan the Devil on the way.
Allah bless all readers of this writing, and all workers for Allah, and all your families, and relatives, and protect you all from all illnesses and their adverse effects, health effects as well as economic and financial effects, including this dreaded COVID-19 that seems to have the world in its grip right now.
Seems that the world is shutting down.
It certainly is a time of great uncertainty and I am sure we haven’t got a clue as to what will happen next -- as if we knew previously.
What we do know is that China, once the acknowledged epicenter of the Coronavirus Epidemic, is beginning to be reopened. How do I know? Well, Apple apparently has reopened all of its shops. That means China is open.
So, Insha Allah, the rest of the world should be able to do so also, after they are able to, as they say, “flatten the curve,” and arrest or blunt the spread of the disease.
However, as we all try to hunker down, as they say, to rally through this pandemic, we need to still think about how we reach out, and share, and continue this work of “Taking the Qur’an to Every Home and Heart that Needs it.”
Jum’ah would have been cancelled for a few weeks for many people. Maybe we should direct them to one of our audio recordings, especially on Friday?
The anniversary of Al Isra’ wal Miraj will be with us in a few days.
Ramadan will be with us soon Insha Allah and by the looks of it, Tarawih in Jamaat may have to be cancelled also.
How do we reach people in this so called “down-time”? Isn’t this when the wonders of the Internet are supposed to kick in?
We have lots of stuff to share with people and now would be a great time to aggressively and collectively invite the world to our literature, both print and audio, pressing into service all Blogsites, news-sites, Facebook, Twitter, and the rest.
We should be vigilantly posting our literature so as to try and reach people as they seem to be engrossed with catching up with what’s happening wherever.
And by the way folks, there is a big world of people beyond USA, Canada and UK. We should reach out to these people too.
Allah bless all of you and help us continue to do this work of reaching out and inviting people to Allah, his Rasool Sallallahu Alaihi wasallam, his Book the Qur’an and his Deen Islam.
