WE DIDN'T SWALLOW ANYTHING

 



By

Ibn Abdillah As-sudaisiy Al-Iloori


Some people do say that our teachers have given us something to swallow, that is why we insist on the Sunnah even when our parents finds it hard to understand our situation. They would say "e fi won le fa, won ti gbe nkan fun won je ni (better leave them, they have given them something to swallow). Lol..


By Allah, no one gave us anything to swallow. What our Ustadhs and Shuyuukh installed in our brain is Taoheed and the Sunnah. These two things repel any kind of virus coming from anywhere. We thank Allah for this rare favour. And we pray Him to continue to uplift the flag of Taoheed and Sunnah in our society, so that those who haven't seen the light can see it and follow it accordingly.


Sometimes, when family trials regarding Sunnah reaches its peak, some parents would say: 


"you must vomit that thing they gave you to swallow today".


At this stage, you will not even know what to do again. You will be laughing one side because it is funny😂, and you will be crying😭 on the hand because they don't know the implication of what they are doing. 


Those who used to say you are a good person in the family will suddenly turn against you. Some parents burn hijabs and go to the extent of attempting to shave beards by force. Some beat their children till they land in the hospital. Some will not be given food. No school fees. There was a case of a boy who had to run to police station. Torture yen po😂 and we were called to intervene. They went and arrested his teacher in Ile-kewu. Ustadh Ibrahim Yusuf will remember this. Remember the case of the sister that was chained and taken to psychiatric home. Many of these trials are not unexpected. The trials will not go on forever. Some of the Salaf faced greater trials. Some were even killed for embracing Islām (Sunnah). We still need to exercise patience till the victory of Allāh comes. During the time of those were before us, it was so tensed to the extent that they were asking "when will victory come". Allāh says:


أمۡ حَسِبۡتُمۡ أَن تَدۡخُلُوا۟ ٱلۡجَنَّةَ وَلَمَّا یَأۡتِكُم مَّثَلُ ٱلَّذِینَ خَلَوۡا۟ مِن قَبۡلِكُمۖ مَّسَّتۡهُمُ ٱلۡبَأۡسَاۤءُ وَٱلضَّرَّاۤءُ وَزُلۡزِلُوا۟ حَتَّىٰ یَقُولَ ٱلرَّسُولُ وَٱلَّذِینَ ءَامَنُوا۟ مَعَهُۥ مَتَىٰ نَصۡرُ ٱللَّهِۗ أَلَاۤ إِنَّ نَصۡرَ اللَّهِ قَرِیبࣱ


Or do you think that you will enter Paradise while such [trial] has not yet come to you as came to those who passed on before you? They were touched by poverty and hardship and were shaken until [even their] messenger and those who believed with him said, "When is the help of Allah?" Unquestionably, the help of Allah is near. (Saheeh International)

[Surah Al-Baqarah 214]

AlhamduliLlah, situations are gradually changing. If you take Sunnah to your house and your parents accept your explanation at once or without much pressure, this is a rare favour. If it is the other way, endure the heat as long as it lasts, do not become arrogant, don't use any foul language, increase your acts of goodness towards them, and above all, engage in a lot of du'a for Allāh to keep you firm and for Him to guide your people to see the beauty in the Sunnah.


May Allāh make the Sunnah easy for us and our relatives.
