We are Qatar, and why it matters not to stand alone

By Nasser Al-Naama

In 2004, I was in the passenger seat of our family car, a Toyota Camry station wagon, sitting next to our driver waiting for my mother to finish her errand with her trusted tailor in Al-Muntazah. I was lazily tuning in to one of the few local radio stations when the transmission was abruptly interrupted to announce breaking news, which was that the ruler of Abu Dhabi Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al-Nahyan, aged 86, had passed away.

I remember the air felt thick with grief, as Qataris were calling in, expressing their condolences for their brethren in UAE. I distinctly remember tears streaming down my cheeks when one woman called in, wailing how she was pained by the passing of "Baba Zayed", who will always be in our hearts.

I was 16 years old, and it was precisely at that moment that I knew how intertwined we as GCC countries were. Each country comprises a person in a family unit, and when one person experiences distress or anguish, the rest clamor around that person to help and offer their support. 

Today, I weep for entirely different reasons, as this family unit has been greatly compromised. From the surreal events that have unfolded in the last couple of days, it has bewildered absolutely everyone how rapidly things have taken a turn for the worse.

How many elaborate lies and falsified information continue to be propagated by media outlets abroad about Qatar; how can Qataris themselves have been viciously attacked and denigrated by the common man in neighbouring countries on social media; how ruthlessly we are being demonized as a people for merely loving and defending our country and leader, when ironically, we are the ones who who have had blockades imposed on us from all sides by these said countries. 

And that is truly at the crux of the matter, that we as a people fully support and unequivocally defend our ruler, Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al-Thani, during this difficult time.

After all, you have to admire a man who, in a time of unprecedented challenges and great adversity, composes himself with class, dignity, patience and resoluteness, qualities that are a mark of a true leader, and if there was a silver lining in all of this, is that we as a nation stand ever more united, all the while displaying the same characteristics of our wise leader, because we refuse to engage in the same vitriol directed towards us, but instead continue to display confidence, kindness and compassion. 

Today, all I ask of you is this, if Qatar means something to you, whether you're Qatari or an expatriate, let us show the world what we are capable of, either by sharing our support online through the hashtags below, or whichever format you prefer, because this is when your voices matter the most.

The decision against Qatar is revealing the heartless attitude of those nations who band ties with Qatar, especially during this Holy Month of RAMADAN. Evenhough I'm not a Muslim, I clearly know the faith and values of RAMADAN and how food products, especially dairy products are important during Ramadan and fasting. Through all this decision against Qatar they revealed their heartless attitude and getting revenge from their siblings. However, I really proud of saying that " I support Qatar " and the decision made to stand alone. As an expatriate worker, I can't do anything many or major things regarding this issue, but I certainly say that you're not going to stand alone. We all are going to stand with Qatar and our prayers and wishes may lead you to overcome all these obstacles and discrepancies.

Qatar's Abyssinian image !!

.

Saudi Arabia's headache has started because Qatar is playing the Ansar? So who represents Saudi Arabia? In some parts of Jajiratul Arabia, when the sound of God's religion came, then the hearts of the Saudi rulers started to have pain like that of Abu Jahl of Makkah. They started plotting to revive the movement.

.

In this work, they are not ashamed to join the Jewish and Christian super powers like the people of Makkah. But with them, they have thoughts and unity, the yoga difference! Yet they meet at the same point and declare a summit against the soldiers of Islam. To destroy them, some people like Abdullah bin Ubayy were also created, who were placed in some of the Muslim states. Absolute love and assisting support for various Muslim autocratical rulers, including Egypt's CC, certify that.

.

The stream of these events reminds us of the action of the polytheists of Makkah. When the Prophet (peace be upon him) allowed permission to emigrate to Abyssinia, some of the great companions of Makkah appeared there and found that some of the great cadres of Makkah were present there.

.

They tried to expose the Sahabad (rah) as a seditious, treacherous argument and expose them. As today's Saudi rulers are concerned about the top leaders of different people or groups. The leaders of Makkah, who argued that Sahabadars were terrorists, argued that the Hamas and the Badrhud organization, as well as the organization, proved to be a terrorist, the same arguments argue that the Saudi ruler and his supporters

.

But the King of Abyssinia of Insaf gave back the leaders of Makkah listening to the real incident from Sahaadah (RA). As a result, Bhagyadhar King of the Messenger of Allah (PBUH) went to the grave with faith and earned the good fortune of Zanas in the Imamat of the Prophet (peace be upon him).

.

Look at the Arab political epoch of today's era. The history of Saudi Arabia's ulceration to remove Morsi from Egypt is in front of the eyes. But the CC was not an Islamic leader in any case. The beginning of his assassination of the support of Saudi supporters has given the level of torture of ignorance. Khadamul Hariam Saudi King Raja is also a part of these tortures.

.

Sisir Torture When the entire central leader of Badrhud took refuge in Qatar, the Saudis started putting pressure on Qatar. When Hamas leaders in armed jihad against the Jewish occupiers shifted their headquarters to Qatar, the leaders started migrating to Qatar, and the headache began to strike.

.

Abdara told Hamas to expel them as a terrorist organization. It seems that the only mission of Khademul Haramain is to protect the interest of Israel. Eminent religious scholar of Egypt, literary interpreter of anti-Islamic activities of Sisi, Badruddin Ahmed, a prominent Islamic scholar supported by Islamist movement Yusuf al-Karjawi took refuge in Qatar. Saudis demanded his expulsion order to Qatar Emir, just like those pagan leaders of Makkah. What is the reason? Has he raised a voice against Islam or has made a false interpretation of Islam's authentic matter, or has committed a murder committed by introducing any religious doctrine of its own? Not at all.

.

Many such events are witnessing that wherever there is no Islamic political power emerging, or the state is reaching the edge of power, Saudi Arabia and its allies are creating obstacles. Jajiratul has been shaken like a hayena in Arabia when their power is created in their power. In this work they have also set up some associates who will raise the same word as fox. It does not come to me that no person who can not even think that Shari'ah is established in any country, they are the leaders of Muslim Ummah in any document.

.

I can affirm that if a Christian ruler ignores all super powers, then by rejecting the suppressed claim of the political leaders of Mecca, the support of the innocent Muslims of Makkah, with the support of their home, can be obtained by Allah and his Messenger (s) himself. , Then know that Qatar's current emir is also eligible for the same reward. If you look at Gavi, you will know for sure that when Allah supports the help of His servants, it starts from a place where I did not even think about you. The same thing can be said about Qatar. The Qatar Ameer is also walking on the same path or Allah Pak is running him.

.

To provide support, support and shelter to the people of the country, to support the support of the oppressed people, to provide support, support and shelter to their own lands, so that Allah Pak gave it to a Christian ruler. We can expect more, because Qatar's Amir is our dual brother. There may be some mistakes in him, but he is not less than the current King King Najshi and Qatar's Abyssinian for the workers of Islamic movement.

Here is the difference between Saudi King and Emir of qatar

Allah is the best proctor of believers, He never dishonors his promises to the true believers.

Let us all try to get more closer to our Lord and use this Holly month of Ramadan to forgive our sins and seek help in prayer and patience.

LOVE YOU SHEIKH TAMIM AND LOVE YOU QATAR.

Allah help you, Allah is almighty.

inshaAllah will be coming good news for us, May Allah bless them, give them the power to understand their mistakes.

When I hear the announcement I raise Allah's hand with both hands, we do not expect that the chief of our holy place will announce that, even in the month of the holy month of Ramadan. We all know that the punishment of the convicted accused is waived this month. And Allah says stop the torment of all graves in Ramadan. Those who have given this announcement do not seem to have human values, they have expressed their lucrative attitude here. I hate them for such activities.

May Allah bless them, give them the power to understand their mistakes
