:sl: everyone! (I've just started this forum and i wanted to say my greetings. Unfortunately i'm starting on a slightly negative note but i wanted to share something i am concerned about).
Subhanallah, many of you may have already heard about the conflict going on between Russia, Syria,US etc. Reading all these news articles i'm seeing some people online talking about if war broke out, which side would win. I've even stumbled across Muslim commenters who claim to be from places like Turkey, Pakistan,Indonesia etc. Who say that they wish Russia would just nuke the US and European countries as they have oppressed so many people. It amazes me how some people claiming to be Muslim could say something like this. I know our Brothers & Sisters in Syria and other places across the world are suffering and we should always pray that Allah rectifies their situation, but is it necessary to wish something like that all for the sake of so called revenge.
If the Prophet
were alive today, i highly doubt he would condone such weapons of mass destruction in warfare as it goes against everything he
stands for. As can be seen from what happened in Hiroshima and Nagasaki in WWII, nuclear weapons are not something to be joked about. I doubt it would escalate to that but it really made me want to weep with how desensitised we have become to the value of innocent human life. Injustice knows no religion, race, age or gender, so even if happens to a Non-Muslim, in my opinion it doesn't make it any less wrong. Even the prophet
ordered to never mutilate the corpses
of his enemies in times of war and here we are talking about someone dying in such a horrific manner. We as Muslims should have love for each other but it seems that this is not the case with some people.
I apologise for the long post but honestly it just really shocked me that a someone, especially a Muslim would wish for something like that (even indirectly). I just wanted to bring light to the fact that even if you happen to dislike the people governing a country, it doesn't mean that the lives of all their civilians are worthless.
Subhanallah, the world is filled with such hatred, may Allah guide us and soften our hearts. I pray that this issue resolves itself and that no further conflict arises Inshallah. Also that Allah showers his mercy on the millions of innocent people suffering around the world.
