In the Name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful
“CULPRITS” ARE SET FREE
[Shamim A Siddiqi,
The four months long notoriously
“famous” trial of Michael Jackson, a top pop singer, came to an end when on
The case of prosecution was weak
from the very outset as none of the witnesses could stand the defense piercing
course of arguments. The mother of the boy proved to be a “liar” and filed the
case, perhaps, with some bad motives of arm twisting of
However, there is another court of justice that is Supreme where all the cases where justice is camouflaged or dumped into heaps of doubts, allegations and counter-allegations have been filed and their outcome will be quite just and honest when it would be delivered on the Day of Judgment. Michael Jackson and the “criminals” like him howsoever, may avoid the clutches of human laws they would never be able to save their skin from the wrath of their Lord. Their, the jury will be His “appointed” angels who are recording every moment of our life and the Judge Himself would be in complete knowledge of all facts, hidden or open. On that day, our deeds would be our own prosecutors and there would be no defense for the criminals except their hands, feet and skin who will be the witness against them and they will speak only truth. There will be no escape from the punishment that would be delivered on the accumulated effect of our “sins”.
This is not the case of the
These cases and thousands and thousands more occurring every day prove the fallacies of human justice on earth. These are the inevitabilities of life style that is not based on the concept of accountability in Akhirah. This condition persists throughout the human society and in every walk of life. Man feels that he/she is free to do all he/she likes or dislikes, forgetting altogether that he/she is a responsible human being on earth and that they all are accountable to their Creator and Sustainer when they will face Him ultimately one day after death. This concept is very essential for man to act and live with. Only then he/she will live like responsible men and women on earth. Only then the human abode will become a cradle of peace, if not, it would remain a hell for its inmates. Injustices will be the recurring feature of our life as we see around us and expecting justice form the human system will be next to impossible. The scrupulous people both in power and in public will twist the court cases in their favor as happened in the case of Michael Jackson and that of the poor Mukhtaran Mai. Humanity will feel ashamed to show her “criminal” face to God Who will preside over His Supreme Court of Justice and where His own will and knowledge will be above all.
Let the humans accept the concept of Accountability in their own interest and reap the harvest of justice and fair play at every step as God-conscious men and women will speak truth and nothing but truth only. Tyranny and oppression will cease to exist only in that society. Would the human society love to adopt that life pattern to live in peace and security and accept the incompetency of man made system that is no good for its own specie?
