I don't have to point out names and their origin but I am pretty sure that those of you who keep abreast of all that's taking place lately can figure out for yourselves as to those whom I am referring to!
Each of us, no matter that one is a 'king' or 'commoner' hails from the lineage of none other than Our Father, the Prophet Adam Alaihis Salam, the Father of All Mankind.
Find me any so called blueblood who doesn't fart foul gases or excrete stinking faeces and I'll agree with you that he or she is really something worthy of some respect for their sheer uniqueness.
But then again have thou considered the essence of Allah's Malaikats? His Angels? They do not eat or drink or pass out anything foul. They are created out of Light that Allah Willed to be.
Yet here we are living in these Akhirul Zaman @ The Last Ages witnessing the foul arrogance and egoistic tantrums of those who despite being given the opportunity to rule over their fellow human beings tend to rule using laws other than what Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala Has Revealed and Commanded upon us,the Children of Adam Alaihis Salam.
Is the Qur'an out of reach for these 'rulers'? Or is it in a language unfathomable by them and their advisers?
Nope. We have all kinds of translations available today, both online and in hard copy but WHO CARES?
Has there been any of these rulers who are immortal? Even Allah's Greatest Messenger, Prophet Muhammad ibni Abdullah, our Rasul Sallallahu Alaihi Wassallam passed away on June the 8th, in the year 632 A.D.
So, it would be good if any of these 'Rulers' who claim to be the Heads of our Deenul Islam realize that they too are soon gonna be visited by Sayyidina Izra'il Alaihis Salam, the Malaikatul Maut, the Archangel of Death who checks upon us 70 times a day without fail till comes our moment to depart this life into the next.
The Realm of Al Barzakh. Where the Angels of the Grave, Sayyidina Munqar and Naqir Radhiallahu Anhu await our arrival. They discern not between one who was once a king or queen and those who are deemed to be commoners during their interrogation of our souls.
Up here on the surface of this Earth, one might erect mausoleums and grand edifices symbolizing one's regal status but underneath 6 feet of Earth, all that splendour vanishes and all that remains is one's 'Book of Deeds'.
If one has exalted Allahu Rabbul Alameen and had been a righteous servant of Allah and has fulfilled his or her obligations towards Almighty Allah and one's own fellow Mankind according to one's role here on Earth, then, only then can one be assured of getting Allah's Mercy.
Otherwise, be prepared to feel the Heat. Literally as Allah Has Promised.
Funny thing is that over here in Mamluk al Malaisie, we have 9 Sultans who call themselves as the Heads of Islam BUT NOT ONE SULTANATE has yet to be ruled according to ALLAH'S TRUE SYARIAH LAWS!!!!
How about that?
In the meantime, be aware of each passing second, each precious inhalation of life giving breath and the approaching moment of Death. Whether it's Husnul Khatimah @ the Best of Endings or Su'ul Khatimah @ the Worst of Endings is really up to us and Allah's Takdir that He Hath Decreed upon us.
