Allah elects individuals to be the ones on whose hands truth will manifest by the degree that their hearts are receptive to receive from the heart of the Messenger of God ﷺ and his characteristics. A person may be defeated by wrongdoers and suffer in his/her wealth, person and possessions though this is only temporary. What they can’t do is to let themselves be defeated in the heart. The hope by which truth and your honour is given victory begins in the heart. Let Allah succeed in your heart and He will elect you to be among those who give success to the truth on Earth.

To my elders in our communities:

When I find our youth coming together in the masjid and not learning anything about Islam, they’re just sitting there eating and talking, I am so happy that they’re doing that. Because the alternatives are worse (at home and elsewhere).

So I sincerely ask the elders to have more tolerance for the youth in the masjid, to be more welcoming to them, and to not push them away.

An episode in our history mentions that Imam Ali ibn Abi Talib, may God be pleased with him, was fighting against someone who transgressed against him. At the moment when he overcame his opponent and was about to strike him, the man spat in his face. Imam Ali paused momentarily and then walked away from the situation. He did not do anything to his opponent. When he was asked why he said “Up until the point he spat in my face I was fighting him for the sake of God. When he spat I feared that I would kill him out of anger and selfishness for what he had done to me.”

Every action we do to help the oppressed and rectify injustice should proceed from this principle: that we walk on the path of truth by the truth itself. We should observe ourselves with deep insight and check ourselves and see if we are doing this for the sake of making the truth a victor or whether we are doing this for the fervour of ignorance (jahiliya).

Para la misericordia de Allah, Sheikh Ghassan Darkal

Hemos recibido con gran tristeza y pesar la noticia de la muerte de nuestro hermano y amigo querido, jeque Ghassan Darkal. Un gran sufí, un hombre de Dios, un asceta, y la persona que llama para el camino de Allah, y un sheriff. Que la misericordia del Todopoderoso de Dios lo envuelva y que su alma descanse en Paraísos. Perteneció a la orden Shadhili y su padre era un discípulo de la Gran jeque Muhammad Al Hashimi +.

Sheikh Ghassan vivió y se casó en España y hablaba español e hizo enormes esfuerzos para ayudar a los españoles Muslimsö y varias personas se shahada en sus manos.

Él fue un ejemplo de buen carácter y humildad, generoso, abierto su casa a los estudiantes y se hizo cargo de los extranjeros. Acompañó a finales de sh. Abdul Rahman al + Shaghoori para toda su vida y se benefició de él.

Extendemos nuestras condolencias a su familia, especialmente sus hijos y sus alumnos y para nuestros semejantes Shadhili en Siria y en todo el mundo. Oramos para que Dios Todopoderoso les conceda paciencia y fortaleza y que Alá termina nuestra vida con la mejor de las acciones en un estado de invocación con la lengua húmeda por ser el nombre de Alá.

If Muslims think like those who have aggressed upon them, what is then the difference between them? How can Muslims await success from God? God’s success is bestowed upon those who side with the truth, uphold it and remain steadfast with it. God’s way is not given success through violating His law. Remaining in adherence to this principle in our day and age is a jihad.
