CHOOSING ALLAH

Dr. Pasha

(Bringing Islam to the World One Concept at a Time!
Taking the Qur’an to Every Home and Heart that Needs It --
And which One Does Not?)

When you choose Allah, you choose Allah – the master of heavens and earth. You play games with Allah, he will take care of you. He will know where to find you and what to do with you.

When you choose Allah’s Rasul, Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam, you choose Allah. You play games with Allah’s Rasul, Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam, Allah will take care of you. He will know where to find you and what to do with you.

When you choose the Qur’an – Allah’s book – you choose Allah. You play games with Allah’s book, Allah will take care of you. He will know where to find you and what to do with you.

When you choose the Muslims – Allah’s people – you choose Allah. You play games with Allah’s people, Allah will take care of you. He will know where to find you and what to do with you.

When you choose a certain Jama’at – one of Allah’s communities – to be part of, you choose Allah. You play games with Allah’s community, Allah will take care of you. He will know where to find you and what to do with you.

When you choose a certain leadership to follow, you choose Allah. You play games with that leadership, Allah will take care of you. He will know where to find you and what to do with you.

When you choose a certain program to follow, you choose Allah. You play games with that program, Allah will take care of you. He will know where to find you and what to do with you.

When you make a commitment to love Allah in heaven and serve his creation right here on earth, you choose Allah. You play games with Allah’s creation anywhere in this world, Allah will take care of you. He will know where to find you and what to do with you.

Those who play games at any of these levels, there is a sickness in their hearts – Fi quloobihim maradun. Allah may make it worse unless they watch out: Fa-zaadahumullahu maradaa.

People! Make Taubah and turn to Allah in toto. Udkhuloo fissilmi kaaffah. Avoid hiding behind empty words and meaningless actions. Don’t stand around and watch. Allah’s Deen is on the march. Join the procession.

END
