The Ugly Truth About You: Part 1 | Part 2
Dear Oppressor or Oppressed,
You may find yourself asking why I address you as the oppressed or oppressor, the case may be that you are the oppressor and not the oppressed or either way? You find in the Holy Quran and the teachings of our beloved Prophet SAAW that the oppressor is also oppressed, you need to know the fact that by oppressing others, you are also oppressing your own soul thus resulting in darkness to your soul for this world and in the next.
حدَّثَنا أحمدُ بنُ يونُسَ حدَّثَنا عبدُ العزيزِ الماجِشونُ أخبرَنا عبدُ اللهِ بنُ دينارٍ عن عبدِ اللهِ بنِ عمرَ رضيَ اللهُ عنهما عنِ النبيِّ صلى الله عليه وسلّم قال: الظُّلمُ ظُلُماتٌ يومَ القيامةِ
The Prophet SAAW had said “Oppression is darkness on the Day of Judgment” narrated in Sahih Al Bukhari. رواه البخاري
The Quran sheds light on Zulm (oppression) where Allah says “Allah does not oppress people in that day, but truly people is who have oppressed them self.” [Yunus 10:44]
The Quran also states that “the punishment on that day will be only for those who oppress others and cross their limits with no valid justification to that.” [Ash-Shura 42:42]
Indeed, Allah admits to His mercy in the example of the man who helped a dog which was thirsty, and gave it something to drink with the respect that it is a living creature. Allah Most High, also admits to His wrath on a woman, who was cast to Hell for oppressing a cat as the Prophet SAAW has informed you.
حدّثَنا إسماعيلُ قال: حدّثَني مالكٌ عن نافعٍ عن عبدِ اللهِ بنِ عمرَ رضي الله عنهما أنّ رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلّم قال: عُذّبَتِ امرأةٌ في هِرّةٍ حَبَسَتْها حتى ماتَتْ جوعاً ، فدَخَلَتِ فيها النارَ، قال: فقال ـ والله أعلم ـ: لا أنتِ أطعَمْتِها ولا سقَيْتِها حينَ حبَسْتِها، ولا أنتِ أرسَلْتِها فأكَلَتْ من خَشاشِ الأرضِ
The Prophet SAAW said: “A woman was punished for oppressing a cat; she imprisoned it inside till it died out of hunger, so she ended in hell due to this. It was said to her, you did not feed it, nor gave it to drink when you held it imprisoned, and you did not release it either to be free for it to eat from the earthly provision.” Narrated in Sahih Al Bukhari.
You should ask yourselves how will we escape from Allah’s wrath, when you have jailed a woman in your marriage contract against her rights, held her in Allah’s name, and took her under her family’s trust? You did not feed her the food of knowledge, respect and care, nor allowed her to drink from the valley of your support and mercy, and you never released her free so she could live, till she dies under your oppression.
Yes, I say YOU because you always lie to yourself, hear and read things as if it was meant for anyone but you. You shake your head in agreement but it is you truly who is being addressed, so do not exclude yourself, truly none but you is in fact addressed.
For how long, people like that of yourself, will stay in the darkness of ignorance? Claiming the beard of the Prophet SAAW, dressing like the companions out in the open world. But no, you adopt the hypocritical acts of Ibn Salool, and inside the house you do what the most ignorant will not do.
Oh, dear fake religious man, dear false follower, if your wife and kids hated Islam because of you, how will you answer that on that Day of Judgement? If they never believed in your way, is it not enough to witness and testify to Allah against you in the hereafter? It will expose that you were false and you did that which the Prophet never did. For the true good ones are the best to their wives.
أخبرنا أبو الحسن عليُّ بنُ أحمدَ بنِ عَبْدَانَ أنا سليمانُ بنُ أحمدَ بنِ أيوبَ اللَّخْمِيُّ نا ابنُ أبي مَرْيَمَ نا الفِرْيَابِيُّ نا سفيانُ عن هشام عن أبيه عن عائشةَ رضي الله عنها قالتْ: قالَ النبيُّ: خَيْرُكُمْ خَيْرُكُمْ لأَهْلِهِ، وأَنَا خَيْرُكُمْ لأَهْلِي
Narrated in Sunan Alkubra for Imam Bayhaqi.
Ayesha said “The Prophet SAAW said: ‘the best amongst you are the best to their wives and family and I am the best to my wife.”
Oh hero of the fist, beater of the weak, abuser of the power, breaker of the hearts, brave to do torture and strong to create hatred, the man who enjoys and finds himself in charge only when he hits and becomes violent, is the creator of depressions, sadness and sufferer in his own house, for his own kids and family.
Sad is how you will be when you meet Allah, regretful you will be of such a deed when you face your creator, and your true strengths will be gone. You will taste the punishment when you are being dragged by the angles by Allah’s command. You will face Allah’s wrath and inevitable fate in the hell fire.
حدّثنا عُبَيْدُ اللّهِ بْنُ مُعَاذٍ الْعَنْبَرِيُّ . حَدَّثَنَا أَبِي. حَدَّثَنَا شُعْبَةُ . حَدَّثَنِي مَعْبَدُ بْنُ خَالِدٍ أَنَّهُ سَمِعَ حَارِثَةَ بْنَ وَهْبٍ ، أَنَّهُ سَمِعَ النَّبِيَّ قَالَ: «أَلاَ أُخْبِرُكُمْ بِأَهْلِ الْجَنَّةِ؟» قَالُوا: بَلَى. قَالَ: «كُلُّ ضَعِيفٍ مُتَضَعِّفٍ. لَوْ أَقْسَمَ عَلَى اللّهِ لأَبَرَّهُ». ثُمَّ قَالَ: «أَلاَ أُخْبِرُكُمْ بِأَهْلِ النَّارِ؟» قَالُوا: بَلَى. قَالَ: كُلُّ عُتُلَ جَوَّاظٍ مُسْتَكْبِرٍ
The Prophet SAAW was heard saying, “Should I tell you of the people of Paradise?’ They said ‘Yes’ he said ‘The person is nice and gentle or he forces himself to be nice and gentle if he asks Allah, Allah will answer him. Then he SAAW said: ’Should I tell you of the people of the Hellfire?’ They said ‘Yes’ he SAAW said the person is very aggressive in his behaviour, negative and arrogant with pride.” Narrated in Sahih Muslim.
You think that Allah is not aware of the true you? Just because people do not see, or have no knowledge of this, just because your wife and kids are still silent and have never exposed your true ugly side to the public? You think it is acceptable! Because people still hold you high? Well, you are wrong, you are guilty and Allah knows you are as He is aware of all things between the heavens and the earth. You also know how ugly your morals are, your guilt will not die and it will accumulate over days and days till it becomes that of a monster and it shall haunt you in this world and hereafter. I feel sad, my heart is filled with sympathy towards you, because you chose to lose and agreed to abuse the same power which was given to you to make you a winner and honourable in the face of your Lord.
Oh man of hands and power, you think whoever gave the power to you will not ask you what have you done with it, and will not account you for it? No, you will be asked over the smallest in weight of deeds.
Allah has given you power, the authority for which you will be accounted for. Do you really think Allah gave you the physical power and strong body, so that you can beat your kids and wife by making their lives a living hell?
Nay, you will be questioned and you will be doomed when the truth comes out and the one who assigned you to care for others and granted you power, He will be asking you about this but differently soon.
