I am writing this column on Jummuah October 9th at 3:00 pm.
I just finished reciting Surah Kahaf of the Qur'an.
The Recitation of this Surah every week ensures protection to oneself from all kind of mischief. I make an attempt to recite it every Friday because I truly believe that the human race has entered into the era of Dajjal. Unfortunately, this chaotic mixture of truth and falsification is so intertwined that it is difficult to recognize and differentiate the factuality.
The federal election is in high swing. In whatever place Friday prayer takes you a local candidate who seek your vote will be there to greet you and shake your hand. It only happens once every four year at the election time. Since encountering this particularly unwanted scene today, I opted to change my exit route and resolved to write this column.
We are living in a time when the State is so powerful that it controls every aspect of our daily/ personal affairs. Laws are made to control even the atmosphere in your very own bedroom. Your spouse and your children no longer belong to you; they all belong to the powerful State. The Prime Minister/Premier of this democratic dictatorship is so powerful that his/her words are the law. Every single member of his/her caucus is to obey them like a slave.
We either vote or chose not to. Either way a democratically elected dictator; Prime Minister/Premier will be imposed upon us. Furthermore we Muslims, who have been out of politics for centuries (living in colonial rules or their agents that is continued up till now), don’t know the politics and its rights and wrongs. We are easily falling in the trap of special interest groups.
It is unfortunate that as a nation (ummah) that was brought forward from all nations for the good (You are the best nation produced [as an example] for mankind. You enjoin what is right and forbid what is wrong and believe in Allah. Quran 3:110) became easily subservient of these wicked politicians.
I respect the opinion of those who say “my vote supports the system that I don’t support, and that’s why I don’t vote.”
However, I also support the opinion to vote for a “lesser evil” or “better evil" over a “bigger evil.” The reason being is that they will bring about bills in parliament and will make laws that will directly affect our current and future life.
I also support Maureen Harquail, the Conservative Candidate from my neighbour Don Valley East and humbly request my brothers, sisters and friends of Don Valley East to vote for her. She strongly believes in traditional family values and She is the only politician who openly came and shown her support for Parents who are protesting against same sex ed. From last several weeks, every Friday, she comes inside Masjid Darussalam in the ladies prayer area and stays with our Muslim sisters.
I fear Allah not Harper.
Reason: Stephen Harper’s evil designs; Bill C51, Bill C24 and future Niqab bill [banning Niqab (face covering) in Citizenship oath ceremony and Federal government jobs] “may” affect few Muslims (assumption).
Proof (assumption): The leaders of the two largest federal public service unions say they are not aware of a single member who wears a niqab in the public service” (CBC news). "We are only aware of two individuals who have chosen not to proceed to the citizenship ceremony based on the requirement to remove their face coverings." (Ministry of Citizenship and Immigration Canada)
However, Liberal + NDP’s Federal and Provincial Same Sex Marriage and relationship bills/laws,promoting, influencing, educating, brainwashing, indoctrinating to all children, youth, adults the gay life style and culture, Freedom of gender expression (Bill 33 Ontario and Federal Bill P279 ) that allows a biological man/boy to use a woman/girl’s washroom (in all public and business places that include place of worship and schools, if he “declares (or says)” himself “female,” Pride days/weeks, Pink days, Gay-Straight Alliance Club in Schools, sexual identification/orientation from the age of Eight, LGBT hero-worship, Changing straight families into homo, Education bills and Sex-Pervert Curriculum, Affirming Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity Act, (banning the treatment of so called `sexually oriented` children to change through thought process to be a gender of his biological birth), Coming bill for the Birth registration services for all LGBTQ families, and Liberals' ambition to erase "gender biased" terminologies from dictionaries and introducing gender neutral terms for both the parents; Parent 1 and 2 or Guardian 1 and 2 instead of "Mom" and "Dad", are already affecting family, marriage, and social and spiritual life of all Ontarian and Canadians.
NDP and Liberal have brought the culture of a gutter civilization in which the Canadian nation are sinking deep. We will be unable to recognize the face of our own generation after deepening and swimming in this gutter.
The Conservative party is threatening us for “physical” elimination of Muslims (assumption).
NDP and Liberal are already on the highway of slaughtering our spiritual life.
The future of better Canada depends on the religious alliance of Muslims and Christians (include all religious groups having common values of marriage and family life).
Voting for Rob Oliphant (Liberal) in this riding means voting for Kathleen Wynne, the architect and builder of “cultural and educational gutter” in Ontario. Mr. Oliphant is the Candidate of Ms Wynne, period.
Quran already decided the biggest evil by granting biggest punishment to the nation of Lut (Lot) A.A.
Conclusion: I am voting along with my family and friends, for Conservative Stephen Harper knowingly he is evil but the lesser of the two and “better” evil than Liberal and NDP.
[I dare to speak based on my faith that God is the Supreme power, and the earth and skies, the world and heavens all belong to Him. He is the King, the Sustainer and the Protector. I love Him and belong to Him.]
