Who's to blame?


 Since moving to the US , I haven't had a problem adjusting to the simple, more quiet lifestyle (Alhamdulilah) . There is less noise, less barbarians parading around wee hours in the night, and though the Muslim population is close to null, the quietness is, well, quite nice.

I am sure many would probably prefer Toronto mainly because Toronto has become such a "happening" city and has become a city of endless opportunities. Good opportunities in terms of employment and multicultural diversity but also bad opportunities as it is one of the biggest "Westernized" corporations. This city has been guilty of falling into the traps of globalization. The city is mainly run on material wealth, and consumerism is how the city stays on top. Sadly, the people are rapidly starting to become prisoners of this widespread epidemic. I once was guilty of being a part of this "consumer society" but I knew there was more to life than working until you retire and living a life of lies.
Today, many people in the West are living a life of lies and they are not even aware of it. The struggle to become the wealthiest or the most beautiful man or woman is something one strives to attain but it is absolutely unattainable. Shaitan's job is to make the haram seem halal and to push human beings to the edge because humans are weak no matter how strong one thinks they are.

"Allah wants to accept your repentance, but those who follow [their] passions want you to digress [into] a great deviation. And Allah wants to lighten for you [your difficulties]; and mankind was created weak." (4:27-28)

I've noticed that this world has become nothing but a zoo. Where humans are acting like animals. Mannerless, careless, reckless. Perhaps even animals are behaving better than humans. Animals don't have free will or the ability to make decisions like humans do and even an animal such as the cat can bury their own waste underneath their cat litter. What are humans doing these days but gallivanting and parading around half naked and fully intoxicated?  

It's not just Toronto that is falling into this epidemic, but any country that follows the US is very well riding the same waves of destruction. Why are people so afraid of natural disasters when they are creating the biggest disaster known to mankind?

Our very own human desires. They are bigger than the waves created by a hurricane and they are sweeping the nation country by country.
The ability to have free will and a choice to think is ultimately leading the universe to it's downfall.

Anywhere you go, this is happening. They are all slowly riding the same waves of destruction. This huge tidal wave will sweep through the entire world and what will be left?  Only Allah knows. 
He is Watching our every move and we will be asked on the Day.

It's not the hurricanes, or the earthquakes that are our number one problem, but it is our own carnal desires that bring disasters to a whole new level.

Fear Allah as He should be feared.
