An open letter to the enemies | Goddamn saahir


Enemies are real, for sure. We cannot pretend that life is all roses devoid of thorns. Sihr (commonly translated as witchcraft or magic), is real. A person who practices this uncool and unsophisticated business is called a saahir. You know not of its ugly impact on your psychological and overall well being unless you experience it. The Prophet s.a.w experienced it. He, as we all know, had a myriad of enemies.

Mahatma Ghandi defined it very succinctly. It's something all fighters and heroes could relate to. He said: "First they ignore you, then they ridicule you, then they fight you, and then you win."

Don't think saahir read blogs. They are not internet savvy but their clients are. To whom it may concern: We know what you have planted and that which you deliver virtually. We walked this path before, we fought and won. We shall now fight and we will win. And we say that bi-iznillah because we believe in the One God who created us and you and your wacky helpers - the jin, iblees, shayatin and the whole gang. You may wish that we suffer and die. Yes we might and you might think it's your victory but think again. We will die as a believer in the Oneness of Allah, InshaAllah. But what about you? 

We learned from our dear shuyukh to always have high himmah, that if people are going to hang us, we tell them: hang us from the highest tree!

Goddamn the saahir!

"O You who is the unlimited 'He', while I am the limited 'He'.
O 'He' apart from whom there is no other.
O my God, it is Your business to vanquish enemies and quell oppressors. I ask of You full backing from Your Exalted Might, that it may protect me from all that wish me ill, so that I can thereby restrain the claws of the covetous and cut off the last remnant of the wrongdoers.
Grant me possession of myself, as a dominion which sanctifies me from every disfiguring characteristic; and guide me to You, O Guide, for it is to You that all things return."
- Shaykh Muhyiddin Ibn Arabi (qaddasallahu sirruh)

And we call upon the ruhul quddus for their assistance.
La hawla wala quwwata illah billah.
