Assalamu'Alaikum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakathuh
Most of us celebrate April fool day every year and fool each other. Isn't it? But how many of us know the bitter facts hidden behind it. It was around a thousand years ago that Spain was ruled by Muslims. And the Muslim
power in Spain was so strong that it couldn't be destroyed. The Christians of the west wished to wipe out Islam from all parts of the world and they did succeed to quite an extent. But when they tried to eliminate Islam in Spain and conquer it, they failed. They tried several times but never succeeded.
The unbelievers then sent their spies in Spain to study the Muslims there and find out what was the power they possessed and they found that their power was TAQWA.
The Muslims of Spain were not just Muslims but they were practicing Muslims.
They not only read the Quran but also acted upon it.
They also said no to music, they said no to beer, wine and all the other things forbidden in Islam.
If they read about Hijab in the Holy Quran they practiced it too unlike most of us today. (Faith without Practice is disastrous-Hadith), so let us join hands and promise to become true practicing Muslims.
When the Christians found the power of the Muslims they started thinking of strategies to break this power. So they started sending alcohol and cigarettes to Spain, free of cost. This technique of the west worked out and it started weakening the faith of the Muslims in particular the young generation of Spain. The result was that the Catholics of the west wiped out Islam and conquered the entire Spain bringing an end to the EIGHT HUNDRED LONG RULE OF THE MUSLIMS in Spain. The last fall of the Muslims was the Grenada (Ghornata) fall which was on the 1st of April.
From that year onwards, every year they celebrate April fools day on the 1st of April, celebrating the day, they made a fool of the Muslims. They did not make a fool of the Muslim army at Gharnatah only, but of the whole
Muslim Ummah. We, the Muslims, were fooled by the unbelievers. They have a reason to celebrate April fool day, to keep up the spirit.
Dear brothers and sisters why are we celebrating our own foolishness, our own downfall, why?
The answer is due to ignorance, right? When we join in this celebration, we do so out of ignorance. If we had known about it, we would never have celebrated our own downfall.
Now that we are aware of it, let us promise that we shall never celebrate this day.
We should learn our lesson from the people of Spain, and we should try to become practicing Muslims, never to let anybody weaken our faith.
Create an awareness to your friends about this article it is a true fact and prove that...
WE ARE NOT FOOLS ANYMORE!!!
