One thing we often hear…

One thing we often hear from many of our own Muslim people is how “Only Allah can judge me!” Of course, this in itself is an absolutely correct statement. Were a believer to hear this, he/she should have a trembling in the heart at the enormity of the saying and its implications.

But yet, it is many times said in such a casual way, with such self-assurance by the speaker, that one does wonder whether the implications are truly understood – one is even led to wonder whether the true intent was to say: “Not even Allah can judge me!” (I am not pointing to any specific persons or their intentions, but generally speaking all of us have to think what we say and what it refers to in reality, and do we comprehend what our words entail.)
