When Abu Bakar was Caliph, he appointed Umar Al-Khattab as a judge. As reported by Western orientalist, months used to pass by with no one coming to Umar with any complaint. Finally, Umar came to the Caliph – according to our present days terms – present his resignation, saying “I have nothing to do. You hired me as a judge over people who knew their duties and accomplished them and who knew their rights and didn’t transgress them.”
How would you feel if you lived in such a society? You wake up every morning knowing that justice prevails, love and care surround you and mercy is your society’s main slogan. Have you ever dreamed that our brothers in Palestine, Xinjiang, Chechnya and so on live in safety without worrying of being shot or stabbed from nowhere? Currently, anywhere around the world, it is always the Muslims are the victims. I can’t imagine how a Muslim can sleep unheeding on his comfortable bed while violent oppression taking place worldwide.
The path is still too far yet not impossible. Just a simple thought from me. By the way, Happy Eid Mubarak! Kullu ‘aam wa antum bil khoir. Maaf zahir dan batin.
