Out of Date

The fashions and trends of the day are always changing. This it self is a clear sign of its deficiency. The creation of Allah Ta’ala never changes. Human beings are not changed to look like birds, and flowers are not changed to look like leaves. This is an indication of the perfection in the creation of Allah Ta’ala. There is no need for any change or improvement.

The command of Allah Ta’ala and the sunnah of Rasulullah (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) are divine and perfect. It is a code of life which never changes. The person who surrenders and submits to this divine system will have direction, focus, peace and stability in life. She will always be up-to-date, since there will be no need to up- grade and improve the codes and principles of life.

The trends and fashions of the world are man-made and deficient. They are always changing. Hence those who follow the ever changing western way of life are found to be always unsatisfied, without direction and focus, and generally unstable. They will always be out-of-date and trying to keep up with the fast ever-changing material world. We need to simply hand over ourselves to the perfection of Islam.
