We have been asked by many people the position or view of the International Quranic Open University and the Muslims of the Americas Inc. with regard to the recent changes in the direction of American politics.
Very few could have foreseen how the Almighty Creator, who is the Ruler of rulers, has chosen to exercise His decisions.   However, as  true believers we are not overwhelmed nor are we shocked by the manifestation of His will and decision.
In light of the closet racism and religious bias that is still very much a live current running through the fabric of American society, even the most optimistic of Americans would not have realistically imagined that Senator Barack Hussein Obama, whose father was African and a Muslim, had any chance of becoming the Democratic candidate for the Presidency let alone win the election.  The fact that this unlikely scenario did unfold before our very eyes gives strong credence to the old adage, “What is meant to be will be” for it is easy for the Almighty to display His Will –despite what mankind believes to be difficult or even impossible.
Somebody asked Hazrat Ali (may Allah ennoble his blessed countenance) about perfection of faith, and he replied to the effect that if he witnessed the skies opening up, and the throne of the Almighty Creator being carried down, it wouldn’t increase his faith.  Whatever Almighty Allah allows to come to pass, that is the reality. With this calmness of faith, we are not shocked. Any Muslim that believes in Isa Bin Maryam (Jesus, son of the chaste Mary), Musa (Moses), Ibrahim (Abraham) (peace be upon them all), all the way to the Holy Last Messenger, Muhammad (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him)–indeed all of the prophets, and he does not also believe that the Almighty is the ruler of the rulers he has not perfected his deen, religion/professed way of life.
One must always remember that the One Almighty Allah had already taken this decision before hand, and He revealed it to us at a time He chose as appropriate.
It is He, the One Almighty Creator that brings about all of the kings, governors, chiefs and when He disposes, He does send His wrath on the cruel rulers, be they of the East or the West.   Similarly it is written that He holds all rulers by their forelocks and keeps hold of the geopolitical balance of power. We are all citizens of His Divine Kingdom. Not a seed is thrown nor can it grow, (trees) without His knowledge and permission. In the darkness of night He knows ALL and wherever we are He is there.
If there can be said to be a glimmer of hope for a society of justice, mercy and peace, it would reside in the fact that it is a Divine rule that a people receive the leaders that they deserve.  The deeds of a people rise up to the heavens and are returned to them in the form of the leaders decreed for them.  It remains to be seen what has been decreed for the American people with this new President.
Therefore, whether Republican, Democrat, Independent or other,, Allah’s Will was and is done and these people (elected officials etc.) He uses to carry out His command; be it Divine Justice or Divine Wrath. There is no escaping Divine  Law and Decree: Whatever you sow this you shall reap. Even in the Christian Bible, it states, “Be not deceived, God is not mocked; for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.”
Hence for true believers there is no room to feel any sense of exhilaration or euphoria about the recent turn of events. Rather, we maintain an even keel. All rulers function through His Will and His Will is always carried out.
Nobody can give you honor nor debase you nor give provisions to you, save Him!  Therefore each cell in your body must remain steadfast, He has no son, no partners and there is none like unto Him.  Glorify, praise, and love Him so He in turn will love you, and everybody around you will love you. Remember everything in creation glorifies Him, birds etc. only man forgets. Look at the fate of the Titanic when some arrogant person said: even God could not sink it- it never returned from its maiden journey. They forgot He has power over all things.
For the rulers, do they think that by committing acts of genocide they shall prevail?  He is aware of all what they do. As history reveals, He is Ruler of rulers, very swift in punishing arrogant, haughty oppressors; in many cases within days His wrath fell. He never spares the oppressors. His law is unchangeable. He has categorically declared that His wrath and curse is upon oppressors. He has declared: I have made it compulsory upon Myself to be merciful.
Therefore We again repeat, for a true believer, the change of rulers, government etc. should not bring any worry, hope or hopelessness because every ruler is in the all controlling grasp of Almighty Allah. Almighty Allah is a living, loving and all seeing all hearing Creator. May He be glorified.
Therefore, don’t worry about anything, do not fear them, fear Him. Only then will a nation prosper.
