So we learn that Saud KSA is ready to pay a famous soccer player £173 million a year, also for ”becoming an ambassador for the country's 2030 World Cup bid.” [1]
This sum of £173 million is the equivalent of 474 000 £/day!

At the same time there are refugees all over the world, including many Muslim refugees - millions, so one would expect them to be treated as brothers and sisters of the Muslim community, the Umma.

Question: What do they spend for this fleeting life? And
What do they spend for their life beyond (al-akhira)?

Allah warns people

{ مَثَلُ مَا يُنفِقُونَ فِي هٰذِهِ الْحَيَاةِ الدُّنْيَا كَمَثَلِ رِيحٍ فِيهَا صِرٌّ أَصَابَتْ حَرْثَ قَوْمٍ ظَلَمُوا أَنفُسَهُمْ فَأَهْلَكَتْهُ وَمَا ظَلَمَهُمُ اللَّهُ وَلٰكِنْ أَنفُسَهُمْ يَظْلِمُونَ }

{ What they spend in the life of this (material) world/ in this worldly life may be likened to a wind which brings a nipping frost: It strikes and destroys[5] the harvest of men who have wronged their own souls/ wronged themselves: it is not Allah that hath wronged them, but they wrong themselves.[4] }

Allah sends whatever He wills:




Do Syrian refugees not count?



Do the Syrian refugees in tents not count? Winter, snow… [2]
Do the Rohinga Muslims not count? [3]
Millions of displaced Yemeni families are shivering, starving. Do they not count?
No not for KSA elites, UAE elites…
What about helping Kashmir Muslims. Uyghurs in Chinese concentration camps!
Yes but we need the football! - Do we really?

What Muslims are called to

{ يَآ أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ اٰمَنُوا لَا تَتَّبِعُوا خُطُوَاتِ الشَّيْطَانِ وَمَن يَتَّبِعْ خُطُوَاتِ الشَّيْطَانِ فَإِنَّهُ يَأْمُرُ بِالْفَحْشَاءِ وَالْمُنكَرِ }

{ O ye who believe! Follow not the footsteps of the devil.}

Muslims are called to discard the path of the demonic, and instead take the path of divinity, to maintain the right path (sirāta-l mustaqīm), not the temptations of fame and power in this lowly world, but to seek the good pleasure (ridā) of Allah (may His Majesty be exalted) .

Oh Allah!
Forgive us our sins, pardon our mistakes,
help us to attain the righteous path and to avoid following the footsteps of the demonic!

"In any case, what Westerners call civilization, the others would call barbarity, because it is precisely lacking in the essential, that is to say, a principle of a higher order."
René Guénon, East And West, 1924

صلّى الله على سيّدنا محمّد و على آله و صحبه و سلّم

The blessings and peace of Allah on the Prophet, his Family, and his Companions, ( sallAllahu `aleihi wa sallam ) .
