GEMS: Journey of Faith (Part 12)

GEMS: Journey of Faith (Part 12)

◆ We are living in this dunya temporarily and do not know when our passport will expire.

◆ There are messengers who had very few followers or only one follower and even had no follower at all. It was not their fault that their people do not accept Islam, rather it is the people's fault for rejecting the truth. Generally, people do not like to accept the truth that they consider strange.

◆ Do not care about numbers of people rather focus on the quality of our work. Result is from Allah.

◆ If you obey most people on earth, they will indeed lead you astray
Surah Al-Anaam, Verse 116:
وَإِن تُطِعْ أَكْثَرَ مَن فِي الْأَرْضِ يُضِلُّوكَ عَن سَبِيلِ اللَّهِ إِن يَتَّبِعُونَ إِلَّا الظَّنَّ وَإِنْ هُمْ إِلَّا يَخْرُصُونَ

And if you obey most of those on earth, they will mislead you far away from Allah's Path. They follow nothing but conjectures, and they do nothing but lie.
(English - Mohsin Khan)

◆ Allah SWT told Prophet SAW that most people even if you care for them, won't believe.
Surah Yusuf, Verse 103:
وَمَا أَكْثَرُ النَّاسِ وَلَوْ حَرَصْتَ بِمُؤْمِنِينَ

And most of mankind will not believe even if you desire it eagerly.
(English - Mohsin Khan)

◆ The truth is strange so only few people will accept it. The number of believers compared to disbelievers are like a white hair on a black bull during the Day of Judgement. Be among the few!

◆ Commit yourself to Allah, not to people.

◆ Your happiest, best moments should be the moments of your obedience to Allah SWT.

◆ Even if you are alone, do not compromise your deen regardless the pressure.

◆ Sadly, people now leave the sunnah but do the bidaah.
