Turn A Blind Eye

Subhan'Allah...the Qur'an describes everyone and everything. Often, we, out of our pride, arrogance and love for this Dunya and what is in it, we choose to fold our arms and turn a blind eye over a munkar that's happening before our very eyes.

We became oblivious and forget that in the future...on the Day of Judgement, the day we will have to face Allah, The Judge Himself, and explain to Him, the wrongs and the rights we've done in this Dunya.

Zaid b. Khalid al-Juhani reported Allah's Apostle, sallallahu alaihi wasallam,as saying: “Should I not tell you of the best witnesses? He is the one who produces his evidence before he is asked for it.” Sahih Muslim, 1719, Book 30, Hadith 25/Book 18, Hadith 4268.

“O you who have believed, be persistently standing firm in justice, witnesses for Allah , ” ..that is to carry out justice for the sake of Allah’s pleasure alone, only then it will be true and just in the real sense, free from diversion, changes, and lies. “even if it be against yourselves”..become a just witness even though it will harm yourself. If we are being asked for something, answer with the truth even if we know it will give us the bad outcome, because Allah Ta’ala will provide ways for things to be solved for those who obeys Him. “or parents and relatives. ”.. And even when we have to become a witness against our own blood, do not protect them, but be a witness for what is true, even when it will cause them harm, for the truth will be the ending for every soul. “Whether one is rich or poor, Allah is more worthy of both. “ not protect them due to their wealth, and do not pity them just because they are poor, for Allah will take care of them. He’s More Paramount for either both of you and He Knows better what’s good for both of them. ”- Surah An-Nisa (4:135).

“So follow not [personal] inclination, lest you not be just. ”.. do not follow our nafs, fanatic feeling, or hatred in giving fair judgement as a witness in every matters. Keep a strong will on being just in any situation.” And if you distort [your testimony] or refuse [to give it], then indeed Allah is ever, with what you do, Acquainted.”.. So, be fair and just, for it is near to Taqwa (righteousness) - Surah Al-Ma’idah(5:8)

From “O you who have believed, be persistently standing firm for Allah , witnesses in justice, and do not let the hatred of a people prevent you from being just. Be just; that is nearer to righteousness. And fear Allah ; indeed, Allah is Acquainted with what you do.”- Surah Al-Ma’idah(5:8)
