Following the Jews and the Christians


Nabi (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said: “You will certainly follow the actions of those before you in everything (inch by inch) to the extent that if they entered the hole of a lizard, you will follow them”. The Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum) asked: “O Rasul of Allah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam)! Are you referring to the Jews and the Christians?” Nabi (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) replied: “Then who else?” (Saheeh Bukhaari #3456)

Today we have become blind followers of singers, actors, and models. They dictate to us what is fashion and style and we obey them to the minute detail. Those disbelieving women who appear on the cover-page of magazines have become idols of worship in our lives. We wish to walk and talk like them, dress and look like them. Let us for a moment stop, and ponder, that if they have to die tomorrow as disbelievers, then forever they will  be in the fire of hell. The frightening question is, “Just who are we following?” Let’s change before it’s too late!
