Islam Passing Through Tough Times?
(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?)
Islam is always safe and always perfectly secure. And Islam is always enjoying a most comfortable and exalted state of being in God Almighty’s limitless creation.
For, Islam is what runs that vast domain: God’s border-less creation.
And of course, more than anything else, because Islam is from God Almighty, who is Al-Hayyi and Al-Qayyoom: the Ever Living and who is Self-Sustaining and who, at the same time, sustains everything in the Universe and keeps it going.
But, at the same time, God also is Kulla Yawumin Huwa Fi Sha’an.
Who knows what that means, certainly not I, but here is an apology of a stab toward a most crude paraphrase:
“Every day, He, God Almighty, is in a most exalted and amazing
state of his own.”
Does that mean so also is his creation? And does that imply a state of perpetual flux for that creation and what some people would refer to as “Becoming“?
And does that law of endless fluidity, morphing and growth also apply to Islam?
And does that mean Islam will change and grow and scale itself in all kinds of unimaginable ways and to all kinds of unsuspected measures?
Who is to tell?
But Islam is certainly the most Scalable System in the universe.
So, relax everybody! Islam is never in danger. Nobody can undo Islam and no one can do it in.
Islam is here in this world to stay and to keep the world going. And Islam will continue to be here and it will continue to grow and flourish as long as God Almighty wills it to be so.
But here is the catch:
There will always be those in this world who will fight Islam and work to degrade and denigrate it. They are like people who get in front of an oncoming train and try to stop it.
Just as there will also be those in this world who will work to support Islam and keep it going -- and take Islam and the Qur’an to every home and heart that needs it.
And to make Islam prevail and hold sway in every aspect of the life of every single individual, group, society, nation and community in the world -- and guide, illumine and bless them.
The first group -- those who fight Islam and try to stop and denigrate it -- are Enemies of God and God will deal with them in his own good time and in his own unerring ways.
The second group -- those who support Islam and work for it -- are God’s Friends and Helpers and God will be with them and help and support them as and when he sees fit.
But God’s help is never far.
This is the most immutable law of this universe. Those who have eyes can see it unfold all around them and throughout history with their own naked eyes.
