  • There’s still khair in the Ummah…

    Dec 31, 2010
    one of the sweet outcomes of being productive in life is the goodness it brings out of us. It truly reflects the hadeeth where the Prophet (peace be upon him said):“There’s still khair (goodness) in my Ummah till the Day of Judgement” which makes you admire and love our beautiful Ummah.

    People complain about us a lot… we complain about our Ummah a lot, but there’s so much khair in this Ummah and here are just examples:
    When an old man holds a date in his hand, just the one date he has and shares it with his fasting brethren, you know there’s still khair in this Ummah.

    When young men stand at traffic lights in Muslim countries to deliver iftaar to those stuck in traffic, you know there’s still khair in this Ummah.

    When an orphan sponsorship gets booked out, or an entire building gets built as a trust for the sake of serving the poor and orphans, you know there’s still khair in this Ummah.

    When people remind each other of Allah, and they stop short of committing a sin or transgressing on others, you know there’s still khair in this Ummah.

    When 1.5 billion Muslims around the world, discipline themselves in the most incredible manner with their fasting, prayers, you know there’s still khair in this Ummah.

    When young children memorize the Quran and are keen to remember the words of Allah and compete in doing so, you know there’s still khair in this Ummah.

    When elderly parents are taken care of by their children instead of being thrown in a nursing home, you know there’s still khair in this Ummah.

    When Muslims stop everything they do, 5 times a day, just to pray, you know there’s still khair in this Ummah.

    When our sisters’ sacrifice exposing their beauty solely for the sake of Allah and cover themselves with hijab,you know there’s still khair in this Ummah.

    When tears fall upon the worshippers eyes and you hear the cries of men, women and children asking Allah to forgive them, you know there’s still khair in this Ummah.

    When we help each, say salam to each other, hug each other, even though we may not know one another, we know there’s still khair in this Ummah.

    When we’re moved by an Islamic cause, driven by a vision to serve Allah, and passionately put our heart and mind to it, you know there’s still khair in this Ummah.

    When we love each other for the sake of Allah, and visit each other for the sake of Allah, you know there’s still khair in this Ummah.

    When we respect our scholars, make dua for our imams, and humbly learn at their feet, you know there’s still khair in this Ummah.

    When we’re moved to tears as we hear about our Prophet and we truly miss him and wish he was amongst us today, you know there’s still khair in this Ummah.

    I must stop here, I can’t continue… but after this, can you ever doubt that there’s still khair in the Ummah?
