The Last DayWhen I look at the United States today, I see a country that is on a collision course with self-destruction that is subject to drag the entire world down with it. The Founding Fathers of this country had their tests and challenges before them, but they did their best. I believe that God was pleased with the moral foundation and hopes that they laid down for this country’s future. Those who fought in the Civil War to free the slaves made their sacrifices for this country. Their sacrifice gave this country a new opportunity to live up to the code of justice that was instilled into the laws of this country by the Founding Fathers. Even those who supported and marched in demonstrations in the fifties and sixties made their sacrifices. They stood against those that were doing wrong when called upon and their sacrifice finally ended racial discriminations in the institutions of this country. Now we the ones who are enjoying the benefits and blessings of everything that came before us are failing our challenges and tests. The United States is made up of many good people from many different countries around the world. Maybe it is befitting that those who are enjoying the most should also be the ones that must face the most significant test. All believers from the beginning understood that God also promised that there would be a last day when everything of this world will come to an end. Maybe each new people that strive to serve God feared that it would be in their life that God would bring this end of everything of this world. This fear I am sure played a significant role in motivating those that believed in God to go forth as with a real purpose. I am sure that these believers try their best to do better themselves and to warn others that there is a genuine possibility that everything that we know can end at any time. A believer knows that God has destroyed many societies in the past for their evil ways and that the same thing can happen to ours and maybe this time even to the entire world. Today, it is not just about one country this time it is about the whole world, as one world village. The United States is the moral and economic leaders of the world have a responsibility for setting the best example for the world. Whatever we do in the United States the people of the world will be influenced to believe that this is what they must do to become successful like us and strive to follow in our footsteps. Many people today believe that we hold our destiny in our own hands, but we do not because our existence is still in God’s hands. If we used what God has given us to strive to please Him and do good deeds for ourselves and others, I believe God will continue to bless us with happiness and prosperity. I think that He will allow us to continue to enjoy his blessing for an appointed time here on this earth and we will also find that his promises of Heaven in the next life to be true. However, if God becomes displeased with us because we have chosen to follow Satan, our avid enemy into every kind of shameful acts imaginable I fear that we will destroy us in this lifetime. I fear this because we are enjoying so much above anyone else in history and the rest of the world today. However, I believe that we the righteous people who are willing to obey God today can rise and meet this challenge. We may even end up pleasing God more than any other people in the history of humanity. Why not believe in the best of people? I run into so many people who choose to believe the worst in others, and it seems to bring out the worse in them. God tells us in the Holy Quran to strive as in a race to all that is good, so I am inviting all righteous people of the world to join me in this race towards all that is good.
