Abdel Fattah Al-Sisi has imprisoned Mohamed Morsi. That action has gained Morsi a lot; the du’a of Muslims around the world, the love and sympathy for him and the Muslim Brotherhood, which he belongs to.
I believe, that Al-Sisi is currently in a terrible situation, where he wishes he could change his name to Mohamed Sisi, in the hope to gain some sincere du’a and genuine love.
State of confusion mood activated!
Sisi is not to be compared with Morsi. One is a murderer, and the other is a man of the people. But for the sake of this reflection, I’ve to make that comparison.
In his speeches after the coup has taken place, Sisi constantly swore by Allah. That was something Morsi rarely (or never) did. Sisi thought the wise would believe him, as he swore more. But fortunately, that tactic even failed him, bitterly.
We don’t earn people’s trust by swearing. We gain their trust and love by being honest, sincere and doing the right things.
Above all, we gain people’s trust by seeking Allah’s trust.
The trustworthy doesn’t have the habit of swearing. When he does, it’s to emphasize on crucial issues and important matters.
The unfaithful swears most of the time. Despite that, no one trusts him, although they know the swearer is supposed to be believed and listened to.
Call to Action
Don’t make swearing a habit. If you do, you endanger the trust you already have, from others.
Allah knows best.
Allahu Hafiz 🙂
