Conspicuously lost n the hustle and bustle of life, is the ability for us to feel the faith in Allah (SWT). For many, achievements are about how good they are, and failures are about how worse off they are. And rightly so, since the World Order University constantly rolls out curricula that have emphasis on self praise and gloat, as well as social relative success, not to mention how success is then defined.
Catherne Pulsifer, author and motivator suggests thus ‘Faith is unseen but felt, faith is strength when we feel we have none, faith is hope when all seems lost’
Indeed, it is clear that the sophistrical argument that is designed to keep us away from having faith, having failed, has redirected the same faith onto others. Meaning that modern day life – society and business, et al, teaches us how we should have faith in others and ourselves becuase it knows that a human heart requires to have faith, except that the faith in the divine is continuously eroded through material toxicity.
Allah (SWT) proclaims in Sura Al Ahzab V3 ‘And put your trust in Allah, and Allah is sufficient as a disposer of affairs’
That is perhaps the biggest take-home lesson that we have from the great event of Kerbala, where Imam Husain (AS) and his small caravan, demonstrated utmost faith and trust in their Creator, and in the process became the most celebrated saviours of the message brought by the Holy Prophet (SAW). If we treat our daily challenges and battles, without prejudice or self-gain, as they did their monumental sacrifice, then perhaps we can start claiming that we have faith in Allah (SWT) and love in our hearts for his most chosen servants.
