Enjoying The Accusations: The Failed War On Terror and The
15 March 2010
The hunts for the people who are accused as
terrorists began by capitalizing on the character traits categorized as
belonging to terrorists according to the versions of the government apparatus,
so be prepared to be sprawled in the middle of the road for the reason of being
accused as terrorists.
Because, in this country (Indonesia – ed) everything is allowed, in fact even
corruptors which suck out the people could easily be let free, except the people
who want to implement the Shari’ah of Islam in their lives. Surely, the
standard for truth in this country is not the right or wrong, but the money and
power. Therefore, when you are weak and have a little bit of truth, happy
finger-biting to you! You might be a target of the operation of war on terror.
The lives of the “terrorists” are so cheap, compared to the lives of the
corruptors and plunderers of people’s money, when the corruptors could be winked
at and asked for a share in the money, and on the other side the accused (as
terrorists) are frustrating the power of these people who sell their country to
the invaders, and at the same time obstructing them from their indulgence in the
lust for this dunya which is already rusty.
Hence, lucky are the indulgers who yield to their desires and lusts in this
country. They are protected by the Nation and are backed by all the government
apparatuses. Just look at the roadsides cafés, places of immoralities and
cinemas showing “cheapies” movies, they thrive and are so free to do their
activities and made legal by the Nation.
But when you want to change this country into becoming better, clean from vices
and obedient to The Creator, then let alone from receiving a smile, thousands of
insults will come by and nestle inside your bodies instead, until you could no
longer breathe, you die slowly or are made to die.
But just be calm, this is a trial in struggling for the Truth. In this trial,
patience and istiqomah are required, so that Allah SWT knows which of
His slaves are truly with iman and firm in His path. Just as Allah SWT
says in His verses of love:
"Or do ye think that ye shall enter the Garden (of bliss) without such
(trials) as came to those who passed away before you? they encountered suffering
and adversity, and were so shaken in spirit that even the Messenger and those of
faith who were with him cried: 'When (will come) the help of Allah.'
Ah! Verily, the help of Allah is (always) near!" (Al Baqarah : 214.)
In another verse Allah SWT also touches on the struggle with our desire to enter
“Did ye think that ye would enter Heaven without Allah testing those of you
who fought hard (In His Cause) and remained steadfast?” (Ali Imran : 142)
So let us look at all this as a trial on our iman to Allah and His
Rasul, and at the same time as a proof of our love for this pure and noble
Dien of ours.
“Do men think that they will be left alone on saying, 'We believe',
and that they will not be tested? We did test those before them, and Allah will
certainly know those who are true from those who are false. Do those who
practise evil think that they will get the better of Us? Evil is their
judgment!” (Al Ankabuut : 2-4)
Happy struggling! Enjoy everything that would fall on us, be it good or bad, in
treading this holy path. Allah is always with the believers. Allahu Akbar!
"But those who believe and do deeds of righteousness, We shall soon admit to
Gardens, with rivers flowing beneath,- their eternal home: Therein shall they
have companions pure and holy: We shall admit them to shades, cool and ever
deepening." ( An Nisaa : 57).
