I’ll leave you with one more reflection about the
the phrase Kaana an-naasu ummatan wahidah
If humanity was once one
One single nation
Now let’s not think about the entire humanity, let’s think about one family.
Imagine there’s a family, and they’re brothers, and they love each other. When they were kids, they are playing with each other, they go to school together.
They eat together. They eat from the same plate
They’re brothers, blood brothers. They fight for each other
They disagree sometimes but they get along
They got each other’s back
And they grow up, and then something happens and they have a fight.
And they move apart
Does that happen? Is that a real life thing? It happens, right?
And they don’t talk to each other anymore. They don’t even call each other for ‘iid or nothing
And then somebody reminds them
“Man, you were one family
What happened to you?
You were one family.”
Now, when you say you were one family, what does that supposed to do? It’s supposed to…
ignite in you those feelings
That subhanallah, “Yeah man, I remember”
I belong to this family
It’s an act of not coming back and being brothers again
and letting bygones be bygones. Letting the differences go
and being a family once again is actually an act of
re-igniting of what was originally there
We, actually, in the genuine sense, the Muslim, is supposed to have love
For all of humanity
Because he sees all humanity as originally what ummah? One ummah!
And what he sees
The Muslim sees now the diversity of religions, and different views,
and all these other…other kinds of human beings
Actually we see them as lost members of the family
As literally, our potential brothers. They just don’t accept that they’re family anymore
Because if you can take them back to the idea that we’re children of Adam alayhis -salam and you believe
in the message given to Adam (as)
We aren’t just family by blood now, by race, by humanity, we can be family
in our allegiances, in our loyalties
So, we’re supposed to think of humanity as our own, not as the other.
There are visions of Islam because of the angry world situation we’re in today with
the few people that have power
have the power to create hatred among nations
hatred among people and they’re very successful at doing that and
instilling hate inside people
and people have duped us and confused us into thinking
“if you’re really genuinely a Muslim, you’re supposed to
have hatred toward non-Muslims.” NO!!
You’re supposed to have hatred specifically
towards the enemies of Islam, who want to destroy…ashiddaa’ ‘alaa al-kuffaar
and those kuffaar aren’t just any kuffaar in the ayah in suratul fath
They’re specifically the enemies of Islam
But they’ve duped us into thinking all non-Muslims
we just genuinely have to think of them as inferior, or hate them,
This is not the teaching of our deen (religion)
This actually goes against the wisdom of the phrase “Kaana an-naasu ummatan wahidah)” – Humans are one people
Why would Allah even tell us that? Subhanahu wa Te’ala
That humanity was once one, and all the children of humanity
we have to remind them, that we’re supposed to be one
we’re supposed to be the agents of unity
