Lament on the fate of a girl abducted by ISIS
Lament on the fate of a girl abducted by ISIS but somehow escaped to live on…
Among the gods of God, why do You a Human…?
A face lost of its youthful look and innocence… Beautiful, wide were eyes but sad. They had depth of an ocean… and sufferings of a lifetime discreet in them. Still I knew she is only twenty, way below my elder son’s age. The cruel world listened to what she said, tears shed. Dignitaries were they attended to listen to the story that contained every element in it of a recurring delirious hallucination. Abduction, incessant rape, blood on all edges.
The fact; Islam is still existent among us with its teeth makes no difference to us anymore for we have come into terms with it preserving the convenient apathy. Still the Girl could bring into surface something that is piercing the already dead ourselves, a terrifying fact of the cult that will linger until humanity meet with the inevitable extinction. We have that fact known now and does that make any difference other than adding something more to us to grind teeth? The fact of act of subduing fellow human beings known as slavery is meant to carry on to the End of Times as the Prophet of Islam envisaged. ISIS could bring that to surface, the only good thing they could ever have done. A piece of knowledge that was discreet to us until the girl broke silence to percer us. How stupid we can get?
“One of the signs of the End of Times, when slave-girl gives birth to her master”. From my experience as a Muslim, I heard it through the mouth of preachers many times in the mosques. After leaving Islam and critically going through all of its aspects, never did it strike me even discreetly until the archetypical ISIS made it known to the world. Islam never envisions a world without slavery, the most retarded of whatever humanity established. “Subduing fellow humans” is a necessary constituent of Islam, the political establishment often among us in camouflage of religion…
If one of the signs of Judgment Day according to the Prophet of Islam is slave-girl bearing her master’s child (Sahih Bukhari 2:47, Sahih Muslim 1:0005) slavery has to be maintained throughout time. We have heard many apologetics over slavery as an institution in Islam and seldom had we questioned the honesty of apologia while we could go through it in details. That Qur’an encourages manumission, Prophet also did the same, but all that is good for nothing when we realize the perforating fact, amidst of all of these apologetic measures, Islam’s Prophet only visualized a world under Islam with slavery being an essential part of it. How retarded it can get?
Still some habitually maintain the nauseating “Islam is religion of peace, a descent religion with the only drawback of some exceptional devotees interpreting and practicing it in a way that is defaming it”. But how descent a religion can get when it is only applicable with institutionalized slavery? Not any retarded hardliner of this times speaking of something for his personal need, but from the mouth of its founder, the Prophet himself the fact is being revealed. Still we think we have shed the burdens of past remorsefully to come into terms of ever progressing a world. And we still tolerate Islam to thrive among us, for the sake of some gluttonous, megalomaniac politicians and so-called strategists’ vicious ambitions. It is always the leader above but subjects lay down dead. How balanced we can get?
How many nightmares are left for us to live on? I mean how much vicious could still be there in Islam again that are subtle to us now and only for now? Will it take another or more like the one of ISIS to surface again to get us enlightened more on Islam? Again and again? The gems of wisdom flow like “there are no innocents in the world outside our dominion, only Allah can determine who is innocent and we are the delegates of Allah doing the job”. “Allah was destroying townships, cultures in the past, but we have been assigned with the task nowadays since Allah will no more intervene in humanly affairs”. Glad we have “gods of God” to fulfil whatever God forgotten or could not foresee…
We know gods of God are among us active as ever. These gods will shape the future for us if we survive with significant amount of luck or bad luck. The future that belongs to gods of God. We can have our gods dictating how to take a step around. We may be submitting all that we consider precious to us to the gods among us. It is what we should live for… the sake of gods of God.
Nadia Murad Taha, the Yezidi girl is by no means the lone victim, except her valour helped her to get rid of the detention but what about all that she left behind? Nightmares may linger throughout her life still what is left for her to call it life? It becomes a practical joke when she and all of us reckon life is virtually over for her within that time of her captivity. Suffering that we call life.., Isn’t it cruel for life to keep going with nothing to inflict upon a human? No more pains, no more moments of joy but numbness to all? Cold it is and nothing, virtually nothing to regain in what all of us whoop it up as life..!
But “after the first death, there is no other” for Nadia Taha since she survived the incarceration. Life can no more stretch its teeth to extort her. Even a detached existence in “eternal heaven will hardly compensate for a moment of her suffering” in detention. Life and everything after it only help to hang You suspended my Girl…You are the Name of suffering humanity or You are the whole of suffering humanity. But You should not have opened Your eyes for the ever-gluttonous world to perceive them… World deserves not the depth in Your eyes..,
Among the gods of God, why do You a Human…?
