Those who dared And who cared.

Bismihi Ta`ala

*Humans look alike. But their inner qualities and their actions differentiate them from each other. They live together side by side in this world. But on the day of Jugement, God will tell those were impure in heart and actions to stand separate from those who lived a pure saint life. In the quest of power and wealth, there are people who dared hurt and kill for their ambition. While there are others that kept their distance from abuse and pursuit their goals on the licit ground and will never kill or hurt in their pursuit of power and wealth. In times of confusion of discerning pure from impure intentions, then Rasouloullah SAW advised us to take the precautionary line of being a victim rather than a criminal.(Musnad Ahmad)*  

*The man who accepted everything to be defeated, his power ransacked in a coup and martyrdom but cared to prevent bloodshed between others is Hazrat Usman r.a. The third Caliphate of Islam cared so much for people that he accepted a house arrest for more than one month, a passive retreat in his house and announcing on top of his wall that he do not wish any bloodshed because of his life. So although they look facially alike, but there are people that cared and avoided bloodshed at any cost.  And there are people that dared go on killing people merely to attain the supremacy of power and wealth.*

 *Rasouloullah Swalallahou `Alaihi Wasallam praised his son in law Usman bin Affaan r.a. of his courage to affront the enemy without bloodshed. To such an extent that Rasouloullah Swalallahou Alaihi Wasallam warned us against killing Usman because once the sword has cut Usman, then muslims will stay in the turmoil of fighting until the day of qiyaamah(Tirmizi):*

In this era of ours, we salute the noble stand of the president of Egypt: Mohammad Morsi. He insisted on no bloodshed amongst his people. He took the path of negotiation, stepping down mode and accepted a defeat of a coup by his own deceitful general: Abdul Fateh Al-Sissi. On the contrary, Sissi ordered the massacre of hundreds of his Egyptian people. Hundred of man and women were martyred. The army were advised to show sympathy before the coup to win the nation`s choice. But once in power, Sissi ordered the killing, raping and breaking those who opposed his coup. When Human rights report these crimes to him, he asked for proofs. Because he made sure to erase all proofs on these atrocities. There are people who cared like Morsi and there are people that dared like Sissi. Like Morsi and Sissi, we have those muslim regimes that turned against the Ottoman Empire to join the British to gain power. They dared. Do you think they will care for muslims? No. They won’t. History has recorded their doings and God will take to task those who dared on the day of Judgement.* 

*After God punishes a nation due to their persistent disobedience and their arrogance to the prophets, then even after that still God cared for the destroyed nation by those terms ‘’Alas to the servants of God’’(36:30) Because you see, He cares.*    
 لَتَجِدَنَّ أَشَدَّ النَّاسِ عَدَاوَةً لِلَّذِينَ آمَنُوا الْيَهُودَ وَالَّذِينَ أَشْرَكُوا وَلَتَجِدَنَّ أَقْرَبَهُمْ مَوَدَّةً لِلَّذِينَ آمَنُوا الَّذِينَ قَالُوا إِنَّا نَصَارَى ذَلِكَ بِأَنَّ مِنْهُمْ قِسِّيسِينَ وَرُهْبَانًا وَأَنَّهُمْ لَا يَسْتَكْبِرُونَ

The Coran describe the heart feeling of Jews and idolaters to be hostile, harsh and most grudged towards muslims. And that Christians are comparatively more fondle towards muslims simply because their faith turn them to God, sacrificing world for hereafter and because they are not arrogant.(5:82)* 

*Seeing the caring and regretting attitude of the president of New Zealand on the terrorist attack, we find that she is amongst the one who cares. She stood as caring leader to stand, dress and talk how a muslim would. Salute to her and to all those who cared. To all those who condemned the terrorist who dared.*

  *Whereas those who dared together with the terrorist doing lip service condolences, applauding silently, calling the terrorist angelic boy, etc then know that your heart has hardened. This is an unhuman quality that need to be cared for. My prophet Swalallahou `Alaihi Wasallam taught us to look after orphans and spend on the poor to change a heart from daring to caring(Tabrani).*
