I know, the election results in Germany are full of worries and questions. I also became desperate, frustrated, sad. But I have to remind myself of all my old attitudes, which always strengthen me. That’s why I want to remind you also: Don't loose the shining of your heart, and the shining in your eyes. Trust the Almighty. Act for society, enrich society. Build dialogs and bridges. Do, what you love and what you are passionate about. But: Don't loose your optimism. It will harm yourself, and spread negativity around you. Optimism is more powerful, than weakness and fear. There are so many people, muslims and non-muslims, with same worries. Just like yours. You - and we - are not alone. We are millions of people. Millions of people who can join hands, and present strength as a collective. I know, that it is hard to believe, that there are people outside with so much hate in the heart. Hate against an entire religious community. Maybe even people, who attacked you? Also I struggle sometimes with the question: "Why?". But I have to remind myself of all the goodness I experienced all the years, and give the negativity no chance to do, what these people full of hate want to achieve. Don't let them control your mind. They are loud, but they are not the majority. Let us trust the remaining people in the Federal Parliament, that they will be loud enough to destroy damaging ideologies. Let us call them up to do so. Remember people like our Prophet Muhammad, may be peace and blessings on Him. Who always stayed patient and confident. People like Nelson Mandela. He fought against racism and apartheid. He experienced oppression and torture. And he spent 25 years of his life in prison! And what did he accomplish? He became the president of South Africa! And he governed with the words: „Love and Forgiveness". These two words start to unfold in our own hearts. Let us get inspired by these amazing people.
Where do you look first, when you look at this picture? - The sun, right? - Do you know, how it feels like to look directly in the sun? Sometimes it is so strong, that you feel powerless, that it even can hurt. Because of that: Let us shine so strong, that people will have no other choice than only looking into the light. Let us shine so strong, that the rays of sunshine reach the eyes and hearts of people, who want to spread damage. Let us shine so strong, that the light of humanity blinds everything harmful. 💫
