All praise is due to God, and may He send His blessings and
salutations upon our master, Muhammad, as well as upon his kin and

The events in Denmark concerning the Messenger of God represent an
aggressive act that has violated the highest sanctities of the Muslim
people. Moreover it is devastating to the ideal of convivial dialogue
between peoples, as enjoined in the Quranic verse which reads, ‘And We

Allah Almighty sends us trials and
tribulations for an outstanding wisdom, of which we will never
completely understand the reasons for, and the effects of, until the

Allah Most High says, “Blessed is He in Whose hand is the
Sovereignty, and, He is Able to do all things. Who hath created life
and death that He may try you which of you is best in conduct; and He
is the Mighty, the Forgiving.” (67: 1-2. Trans. Pickthall)

Through this exalted and merciful speech, we understand that Allah
sends us trials and tribulations in order to test our actions and

We may be tested with death, sickness, oppression, a broken heart,
or confusion about the world around us. These experiences can inspire
feelings of shock, fear, pain, and sorrow. Such strong emotions may

submission to the Will of Allah. In this way, weeping certainly does
not contradict the act of patience.

and purifying them, and teaching them the Book and the wisdom, although
before that they were surely in manifest error.’ (3:164)

Allah commanded us to obey him when he commanded us and to refrain
from what he forbade us. ‘Whatever the Prophet gives you accept it, and
whatever he forbids you refrain from it.’ (59:7) ‘Whoever obeys the
Prophet obeys Allah.’ (4:80)

He expected us to emulate the Prophet and said concerning him,
‘Certainly you have in the Messenger of Allah an excellent exemplar for
him who hopes in Allah and the latter day and remembers Allah

This verse in particular summarises the whole religion with
miraculous brevity. It contains by means of subtle indication, in the
words of the great Sufi and mujahid, Emir Abdul Qadir al-Jaza’iri,
‘everything that every author has ever recorded from the rulings of the
religion or of this-worldly affairs’. He goes on to explain this
mentioning that this ‘excellent example’ has four aspects to it. [Read More]
