Most of us celebrate April fool day every year and fool each other.
But how many of us know the bitter facts hidden behind it. It was
around a thousand years ago that Spain was ruled by Muslims. And the
Muslim power in Spain was so strong that it couldn't be destroyed.
The Christians of the west wished to wipe out Islam from all parts
of the world and they did succeed to quite an extent. But when they
tried to eliminate Islam in Spain and conquer it, they failed. They
tried several times but never succeeded.
The unbelievers then sent their spies in Spain to study the Muslims
there and find out what was the power they possessed and they found
that their power was TAQWA. The Muslims of Spain were not just
Muslims but they were practicing Islam. They not only read the Quran
but also acted upon it. When the Christians found the power of the
Muslims they started thinking of strategies to break this power. So
they started sending alcohol and cigarettes to Spain free of cost.
This technique of the west worked out and it started weakening the
faith of the Muslims in particular the young generation of Spain.
The result was that the Catholics of the west wiped out Islam and
conquered the entire Spain bringing an end to the EIGHT HUNDRED LONG
YEARS' RULE OF THE MUSLIMS in Spain. The last fort of the Muslims to
fall was Grenada (Gharnatah), which was on the 1st of April. From
that year onwards, every year they celebrate April fools day on the
1st of April, celebrating the day, they made a fool of the Muslims.
They did not make a fool of the Muslim army at Gharnatah only, but
of the whole Muslim Ummah.
We, the Muslims, were fooled by the unbelievers. They have a reason
to celebrate April fool day, to keep up the spirit.
Dear brothers and sisters, when we join in this celebration, we do
so out of ignorance. If we had known about it, we would never have
celebrated our own downfall. So now, that we are aware of it, and
now let us promise that we shall never celebrate this day. We should
learn our lesson from the people of Spain, and shall try to become
practicing Muslims, never to let anybody weaken our faith.
Please forward this message to as many Muslims as you know. The more
people you forward it to the greater will be the reward from your
Lord in this world and in the life hereafter. Please try to do it
before the 1st of April, to create awareness that WE ARE NOT FOOLS
