This is the time for soul searching.

This is not the time for finger pointing, being arrogant, or exerting self-righteousness.
This is the time for humility, self-reflection, and bonding for the sake of God.

This is the time for being calm and collected but determined and focused.

This is the time to side with truth and ...justice.

This is the time of looking inward into our spiritual mirrors.

This is the time for reorientation of our thoughts and emotions.

There is a real danger at this time that our emotions might take over and our sense of balance and the balance of sense might be lost. But remember! Vultures are hovering over us to take advantage of us or even to use this opportunity to tear us apart.

Global injustice prevails. Law of jungle seems to have taken over. ‘Might is right’ is being used as the norm. Poor and the weak are suffering. Truth is being sacrificed at the altar of prejudice and hatred.

This is not the time to indulge in useless arguments.

This is the time to burry our differences once and for all, and demolish any physical or mental or religious barriers that divide us.

War is being thrust upon us. If we remain steadfast and united, Allah guarantees our victory. If we don’t, then we will be on our own. Then Allah will not help us, no matter how much we pray for His help.

The only course we should adopt is the course of unity and balance based on reason and not on emotion.

Let us learn from the Quran the meaning of Siraat-al Mustaqeem, the straight and the most balanced way. We must maintain balance. Otherwise, we will fall.
