A Jordanian doctor managed to get into Gaza to work at a hospital there. This is what he said in an interview: He never heard a complaint. The bloodied Gazans were saying, “This is for Allah. We are doing this for Allah.” A woman looked at her son’s dead, washed body, and said “When he was born I prayed he would die a martyr, and now he has. Alhamdulilah.” He said a grace came over them, a patience, that allowed them to pull together and embrace what was happening to them.
This is the legacy of Muhammad, may Allah bless him and give him peace. This is the success he promised to those who are willing to acknowledge
they didn’t create themselves,
cannot maintain themselves,
cannot avoid their death, and
have been created to praise something larger than themselves.
