Ustadh Nouman Ali Khan shares a passage from Surah Aal e Imran which is very relevant and extremely pertinent through the kinds of situations Muslims are facing in regards to the construction of masajids in certain places, in regards to how certain Christian groups are celebrating the desecration of Allah’s book and these are painful things to hear over and over again.
The Ustadh tells us that ee shouldn’t be surprised or hurt by these actions. The people that don’t believe and especially those that have animosity against Muslims and Islam, they have certain principles that they live by and we find that when it comes to dealing with the Muslims, and when it comes to dealing with Islam, the forces of Kufr (disbelief) will compromise their own principles.
Allah Himself says: “But if you persevere patiently and become Al-Muttaqun then verily that will be a determining factor in all affairs.”
And if we are able to be patient, controlling our emotions, holding ourselves back and continuing to fear Allah, then this is of the most noble deeds one can do. Our patience speaks volumes but our yelling and screaming is more detrimental. After we are patient what are we supposed to do? We are supposed to be patient. We are supposed to continue to have Taqwa of Allah.
