Last week we heard rape and cruel killing of university student called Özgecan from Turkey. According to the news she was getting to her home in the evening. When all passengers get out of Minibus, she was left with a driver. So Satan kindled the known desire. It motivated him to rape her. Not only to stop there, it went so further that it made him kill and burn her.
Have you looked how satan plays to human beings?
Past is passed never to return. Let us take lessons from the past to elevate our life. Learning from our own and other’s mistake and not repeating it takes us to perfection.
1. What beautiful words when Our beloved Prophet(SAW) says “Beware of being alone with women. By the One who has my soul in His(Allah) hand, a man is never alone with a woman without Shaytân coming between them. It is better for a man to press up against a pig covered with filth than for his shoulder to press against the shoulder of a woman not lawful for him.” So look! She was in mini bus with him. Satan tempted him to do this cruel act.
2. Imam al Qayyim(May Allah have mercy on him) said that there are three origins of sins. Polytheism(worshipping other than Allah), obeying anger and obeying lust. Look how these things lead humanity to destruction. Polytheism is the greatest injustice on the earth. Man obeys his lust through unlawful ways. If his desire is not met, his anger overwhelms him. The Imam added that anger leads to killing and obeying lust leads to adultery. Keeping ourselves away from these leads us to happiness both in this world and Hereafter.
3. Islam ordered women to wear hijab.
“O Prophet, tell your wives and your daughters and the women of the believers to bring down over themselves [part] of their outer garments. That is more suitable that they will be known and not be abused. And ever is Allah Forgiving and Merciful.” Surat Al-Ahzab 33:59
Through hijab woman becomes a real woman. Otherwise, everyone tries to play to and ridicules her. Hijab makes woman pearl and queen. She is feared for her hijab. She doesn’t expose herself to harm. It is said that this man had a knife in which he slaughtered the girl. He might study her before he intended to do so. Dear sisters don’t throw yourselves to destructions by your own hands. Don’t share your photographs on social media. If you fear Allah and respect yourselves, so does Allah honor you in man’s heart. Otherwise, having fooled yourselves by Western propaganda, you never escape from rape and destruction to your life.
4. Evil is done at night more than a day. Satan disperses at night to cause more corruption in the land. Dear sisters don’t trust electric lights and police. Don’t go out at night alone. Don’t expose yourselves to harm.
May Allah guide us to His true path of salvation and happiness.
