Democratic Friday Sermon

13:11

“For each one are successive [angels] before and behind him who protect him by the decree of Allah . Indeed, Allah will not change the condition of a people until they change what is in themselves. And when Allah intends for a people ill, there is no repelling it. And there is not for them besides Him any patron.”

How often have we been told that change must come from within?

We are cornered by the condition around us without realising it as an opportunity to define our reality. When God sent Adam and Eve away, He wanted to test his conviction.

Who are we to blame another for the ills of society if we refuse to internalise the motivation of being a good citizen.

Register your right. Be a voter. Cast your faith. 

“’My country, right or wrong is a thing no patriot would ever think of saying except in a desperate case. It is like saying My mother, drunk or sober.” –G.K. Chesterton
