Amidst all the fear & panic in Calgary about Islamophobia & hate crimes, some were saying that they wont go to mosques for taraweh or Friday prayers or Eid prayers.I kept thinking about how different Muslims are reacting in different ways.These thoughts were lingering in my mind.Then as per my routine when I opened The Holy Quran to read.I came across this verse.Quran is a guidance for all times,Allah guides us,comforts us through it.May Allah make us steadfast & strengthen our Imaan.May we fear only Him.
Points to ponder~
*Allah swt is teaching us in this ayah that if we have second thoughts about going to the house of Allah.It will still be visited by people who have stronger belief in Allah than us.
If we dont go we are depriving ourselves of the reward & benefits of going to the mosque.
*If one truly has fear of Allah & the Last Day nothing can stop him/her from going to the mosque.
*We need to fear Allah alone.Not people,not what the media portrays,not what people scare us with.
*If one is an establisher of Salah & offers charity then he/she will be one go goes to the mosque.
