PLEASE BE AWARE – WHEN YOU GO TO VOTING BOOTH TO CAST YOUR VOTE
Before you read my comments, I would like to say that I have no political affiliation with any party but I think PTI under the leadership of Imran Khan is the only true servants of Pakistan and have pain and feelings for the suffering of Pakistan national. The other thing that I would like to say that I am not comparing anybody with the Caliph Umer, because he is he will forever be the lofty light of Islam and democratic way of governing.
After taking charge of his office, Umar spoke to the Muslims. "O people, you have some rights on me which you can always claim. One of your rights is that if anyone of you comes to me with a claim, he should leave satisfied. Another of your rights is that can demand that I take nothing unjustly from the revenues of the State. You can also demand that I fortify your frontiers and do not put you into danger. It is also your right that if you go to battle I should look after your families as a father would while you are away. O people, remain conscious of Allah, forgive me my faults and help me in my task."
Allah says “o you who believe stand out firmly for justice as witnesses to Allah, even as against yourselves or your parents, or your kin and whether it concerns rich or poor, for Allah can best protect both” (4:135)
Once a woman brought a claim against the Caliph Umar. When Umar appeared on trial before the judge, the judge stood up as a sign of respect toward him. Umar reprimanded him saying, “This is the first act of injustice you did to this woman!”
He insisted that his appointed governors live simple lives, keep no guard at their doors and be accessible to the people at all times, and he himself set the examp0le for them. Many times foreign envoys and messengers sent to him resting under a palm tree or praying in the mosque among the people, and it was difficult for them to distinguish which man was the Caliph. He spent many a watchful nights going about the streets of Medina to see whether anyone needed help or assistance. An Egyptian spy during their Egyptian campaign reported. “I have seen a people, every one of whom loves death more than he loves life. They cultivate humility rather than pride.”
Now compare any of the rulers we had in Pakistan and ask yourself who is going to be your ruler for the next 5 years. Vote justly not any kind of animosity but on merits. Remember every one of you who has twisted ideas in your heart at the time of voting, you will have to answer to Allah ultimately. Do not gather hell fire for something you have control over. Please remember this. It is the future of Pakistan. Please do not follow the crooked path and try your best what all of us can do for ourselves, for the country and for the people of Pakistan and for the Muslims at large. May Allah guide you in your decision?
