More Than a Mere Spectator

The shaikh, Dr. Muḥammad ibn Ghālib Al-ʿUmarī, may Allāh protect him, said:

A dark, pessimistic view about the state of societies must not come to prevail. Good exists, and people upon it are fulfilling [what’s upon them]; [this] struggle is an ancient, ongoing thing. The only thing at most that a slave [of Allāh] looks at is his not being a mere spectator, [just] watching events happen.

You are capable of something; if you’re not a person of influence, then [you’re capable of] no less than advising your neighbor or child, or keeping yourself safe [upon the religion].
