"I Cursed That I Am Cursed!"

Recommended Posts

سبحان الله

Salam Alaikum, oh brothers and sisters around the globe!

Jazak Allah Khair.


Abu Manaws,

He declared other muslims infidels,


He declared other chiefs to raise taxes,


He declared himself a god,


Yet, he hided behind the submission,



He asked an elder, 

Who he did not know or ever see:

"Am I not your Lord?"

The elder responded:

"I do not understand you, repeat but be clear."

"Am I not your Forgiver?"

The elder became irritated,

"Go away from me, do not look at me, but repent before you do so."

"Am I not your Sustainer?"

The elder walked away towards his home,

Called his slave,

And together,

They walked towards the spot where Abu Manaws was talking to the elder.


The slave and his master reached the spot,

They arrived not too tired but not too strong,

There was Abu Manaws,

Looking towards the elder and the slave,

And as they walked towards each other,

The elder began to ask the slave:

"Are those who know equal to those who do not know?" {Al-Qur'an Al-Karim, Az-Zumar}

"They shall have with their Lord what they please, that is the reward of the doers of good." {Al-Qur'an Al-Karim, Az-Zumar}

The elder then said:

"I give you the chance to discuss with this man, he is lying, so show the truth to him. Allah is Great!".


The elder wanted to buy bread and as he walked away,

The slave began to engage Abu Manaws,

He began with greeting:

"Salutations to the Lord of the East and Lord of the West." (Al-Qur'an Al-Karim, Ar-Rahman)

Abu Manaws thought that the slave was referring to him,

So he returned with:

"Thank you, now obey me and give me some fruit. I am hungry."

The slave said:

"Surely We have revealed to you the Book with the truth, therefore serve Allah, being sincere to Him in obedience." (Al-Qur'an Al-Karim, Az-Zumair)

Abu Manaws became irritated:

"Why should you be my servant? I am your Lord, so obey me!"

"Every man is responsible for what he shall have wrought." (Al-Qur'an Al-Karim, At-Tur)

"Close your mouth before I curse you! I am your Lord, not a man!"

"Surely Allah is my Lord and your Lord, therefore serve Him, this is the right path." (Al-Qur'an Al-Karim, Az-Zukhruf)

Abu Manaws became weak:

"Tell me, why are my words not harming you?"

"Do you not reflect on the Qur'an? No, on the hearts there are locks." (Al-Qur'an Al-Karim, Muhammad)

"What has your Book to do with my words?"

"Most surely your party is amongst those who distort the Book with their tongue that you may consider it to be (a part) of the Book, and they say, It is from Allah, while it is not from Allah, and they tell a lie against Allah whilst they know." (Al-Qur'an Al-Karim, Ali' Imran)

"How do you know that?"

"You ask me as if I were solicitous about it. I should say: Its knowledge is only with Allah, but most people do not know." (Al-Qur'an Al-Karim, Al-A'raf)

Abu Manaws collapsed from his pain, and said:

"I cursed that I am cursed!"
