I am not a political person at all, I dont like to intervene into political discussions; I’m a very peaceful person and believe the best in people despite all the wars and conflicts, but I believe there is something I need to highlight within the situation we currently live in.
For those who have been following the news recently, know that Qatar, one of the GCC countries, has been in a blockade from its neighboring countries for about two weeks now!
As a Qatari this really saddens me especially coming from sister countries that we consider family; our nations have more ties and relations with one another than any other countries and we have always considered ourselves as one.
But within all this sadness that has been brought to us, good blossims and grows! Despite the hatred and accusations, Good has brought our nation TOGETHER! Today the unity of our own people, nationals, expats and everyone living on this land, has grown on so many levels!
The amount of pride, persistence, generousity, helping one another, being kind to one another, respecting one another, treating everyone as one, and standing side by side has made us stronger than ever! I am proud to be living in such a country and wouldn’t trade it for the world!
Despite the sad situation we are in, good has been able to overcome it!
As Allah (swt) says in the Quran:
“… وَعَسَىٰٓ أَن تَكْرَهُوا۟ شَيْـًٔا وَهُوَ خَيْرٌ لَّكُمْ ۖ وَعَسَىٰٓ أَن تُحِبُّوا۟ شَيْـًٔا وَهُوَ شَرٌّ لَّكُمْ ۗ وَٱللَّهُ يَعْلَمُ وَأَنتُمْ لَا تَعْلَمُونَ”
Which means you may dislike something although it is good for you, or like something although it is bad for you: God knows but you do not.
