Afflictions and protection from them
Allah’s Apostle said, “There will be afflictions (in the near future) during which a sitting person will be better than a standing one, and the standing one will be better than the walking one, and the walking one will be better than the running one, and whoever will expose himself to these afflictions, they will destroy him. So whoever can find a place of protection or refuge from them, should take shelter in it.”
Volume 9, Book 88, Number 202 :
Narrated by Abu Huraira
Means Pain not the physical one but right in heart.
Remedy from Holy Quran:
Surat Al-`Aşr (The Declining Day) – سورة العصر
In near time means today time. You will see a hollow media all day by all means they will fill you with filth/useless information as knowledge is not more nor the wisdom. So To walk one the straight path this era is most difficult in all times. Because Devil/Shaitan will pull you from all directions and for a Muslim it will very difficult to understand what right and wrong unless he is connected and in touch to Holy Quran with understanding. these words are symbolic as like sitting and walking and running. Like you need to understand very well as affliction you have to face as long as you will not purify yourself and free from this media they evil of this ERA. By all means these controversies and useless by very attractive message will be deliver to us in all ways possible. Its not about a specific area but all world will be under attack of it. and every person rather a Muslim or not Muslim have to go through this pain. As they will claim its the way to live but this way lead you to pain. They will never share the pain but always the happiness(as you do not have only like button on Facebook) Like TV and all media is one way of communication like all employees have to follow the employers and there is no right and wrong. So better to find protection by Holy Quran and stay connected to ROPE of ALLAH.
You can easily understand a poor person have less ways to get deceived by this affliction and a person belongs to middle class has more money and have more ways to get deceived similarly a person rich is home of this pain. As he will be far away from Holy Quran. and apparently his life will be seem so joyful but he will be home of pain. So a sitting is better than walking and walking is better than running. and whoever have to face this pain he have to purify his heart by connecting her heart and soul by faith to ALLAH and purify by Holy Quran. and Follow the Muhammad PBUH life and have to follow his foot steps and they way he lived his life. He was merciful so we have to be merciful to the one who is about to kill us or said bad to us. But in this hadith point is to be aware of the affliction and stay connected to ISLAM and Quran is the only way and key and remedy of all pains of this time.
You will see people and all human kind in search of remedy of this affliction. ALL will only find whoever seek it and seek with purity and ALLAH will connect it to rope of ISLAM and embrace Islam and his heart and soul will be in soothe.
You can see this affliction in muslims to because they are also so away from fundamentals of Islam in all walks of life. Its not about Government its about individuals. ALL of us rather looking other need to look to ourselves and need to understand the Holy Quran the message and remedy for all times. That is why its said embrace and join ISLAM with all your existence because ISLAM is not this way like few things you like and few things you can ignore or you do not like so you will not admit or obey them. Join Islam with all your existence and have faith and ask for help and pray for every bit only TO ALLAH.
Islam is remedy of all pains spiritual as well as physical.
Whoever joins Islam or embrace Islam is suppose to embrace ISLAM completely.
all matters and deals and ways to be on faith and Islamic rather intruding our personal like and dislike will eventually leads us back to affliction. Islam is a blessing and blessing will stays if you remains honest with it and if you start dishonesty you know the result.
So Stay connected to Holy Quran and try to read it slow and little but with understanding even a verse. Even a verse a day. and you are the judge of your actions.
Allah bless us all with straight path and let us stay connected to HIS Message with understanding and let us firm on this path with patience and endurance.
ALLAH forgive me for mistakes or if I wrongly interpret.
