It is Better to be Oppressed than Becoming an Oppressor

Its an interesting short excerpt from Shaykh Hamza Yusuf from a lecture in 2016.

Its only 3 mimutes and worth watching.

I heard a short part of a lecture from SHaykh Hamza Yusuf recently while passing while he was talking about oppression and how a Muslim should react.

The first one was thankfulness - Thank Allah (swt) that the oppression is not worse.

We sometimes get all caught up in slight problems and prejudice that Muslims face here in the UK, but when compared with what others have faced - Muslims and non Muslims, we should be immensely grateful.

Rethinking Islamic Reform: Hamza Yusuf & Tariq Ramadan

The Rethinking Islamic Reform conference, originally held May 26, 2010, features two of the world's foremost Muslim intellectuals as they provide guidance in the ever polemical topic of reform in Islam.

Oxford University Islamic Society is honoured to have hosted Sheikh Hamza Yusuf Hanson (Zaytuna Institute, USA) and Professor Tariq Ramadan (Oxford University, UK) to participate at this ground-breaking conference.

Springs Gift

“I envy the sand that met his feet

I’m jealous of honey he tasted sweet

Of birds that hovered above his head

Of spiders who spun their sacred web

To save him from his enemies

I envy clouds formed from the seas

That gave him cover from the heat

Of a sun whose light could not compete

With his, whose face did shine so bright

That all was clear in blinding night

I envy sightless trees that gazed

Upon his form completely dazed

Not knowing if the sun had risen

But felt themselves in unison

With those who prayed, and fasted too

Simply because he told them to

With truth and kindness, charity

From God who gave such clarity

His mercy comes in one He sent

To mold our hearts more heaven bent

I envy all there at his side
