“Believers, uphold justice and bear witness to God, even if that witness is against yourself, your parents or your close relatives. Whether a person is rich or poor, God can best take care of both. Refrain from following your own desires, so that you do not act unjustly. If you distort the truth, God is fully aware of what you do.”
~ Holy Quran 4:135 (Safi Kaskas)
In this week’s sohbet, I discuss injustice and oppression and how these situations, aside from the obvious, create conditions in societies that not only spawn activist movements, but also create a fertile ground for extremism to thrive that further destabilise societies and threaten lives and people’s safety and security.
We must always champion justice and fairness for everyone, regardless of distinguishing characteristics such as ethnic, cultural, or religious affiliations or heritages.
Followed by the traditional weekly dhikr/meditation of the Naqshbandi tariqat.
