Why despair? You make history
At the time of the Sepoy Mutiny of 1857, the whole of Delhi was in a state of stagnation and anarchy. It is difficult to understand who is a friend and who is an enemy. The occupation of India began in 1757 with the conquest of Bengal. After hundreds of ups and downs for almost a century, the British occupied the whole of India one by one, from Pakistan to Burma, from Sri Lanka to Kashmir. By sucking the resources of India, they started building England in the muddy soil.
However, the British in India faced the strongest resistance, exactly one hundred years after the Battle of Plassey, in 1757, during the Sepoy Mutiny. After the revolt failed, the British government in India lost its sense of humor like a mad dog and started extreme repression. Thousands were killed for allegedly participating in or aiding the insurgency.
At one point, like many others, police constable Gangadhar was fleeing Delhi by boat with his wife Indrani and two children. English soldiers were regularly patrolling around the river Jamuna even at night. They stopped the boat and caught Gangadhar and his family. When the eyes of the English soldiers were fixed on a four-year-old girl.
Rebel sepoys in Delhi have killed many English soldiers and their family members. Many English women, men, and children were also missing. In the middle of the night, one of the four Indian passengers in the dinghy on the banks of the Jamuna saw a cute baby girl and grabbed him, an Englishman. When they started interrogating, Gangadhar claimed that the child was his own daughter.
The English did not believe it at all, so they began to interrogate each of them separately. His statement was taken, his wife Indrani's statement was also taken, along with his eight-year-old son and this four-year-old baby girl, the soldiers were convinced that the child was in fact Gangadhar's child. They left the family.
About three and a half years after this incident, another son was born in this family, named Gangadhar Motilal. Yes, I am talking about Motilal Nehru. This Motilal Nehru's son is Jawaharlal Nehru, under whose leadership India lost to the British. The family that somehow escaped and saved lives one day made history!
Abdur Rahman (Abdur Rahman ibn Mu'awiyah ibn Hisham ibn Abdul Malik ibn Marwan), his wife, somehow managed to escape the successful revolt of the Abbasids against the Umayyad Caliphate, in 651.
On the way, his brother Yahya was captured and lost his head, but he endured many hardships, reaching Egypt, Tunisia, Morocco, and finally across the sea to Andalusia; In today's Spain. That was in the year 755. Forty years ago, Muslim rule was introduced in Spain through Tariq bin Ziad, but Muslims are still embroiled in power struggles between Arabs and non-Arab Africans, while local Christians are still engaged in sporadic wars.
Ubaidullah ibn 'Uthman, Abdullah ibn Khalid on the one hand, and Amir Yusuf al-Fihri on the other.
Abdur Rahman was also waiting for such a liberating time. He landed on the eastern edge of Malaga with only 300 troops in 655 AD without delay.
At that beginning, Abdur Rahman set out to consolidate Islamic rule in this vast territory of Spain, to end the mission that Tariq bin Ziad had begun. In 69, he is the undisputed emir of Spain! He is the one who escaped with his life only a few days ago!
The same situation happened in the case of another Abdur Rahman. He has spent his life traveling from Tunisia to Egypt, from Egypt to Granada or the Moroccan city of Fez. Ever since or in the desert the devotee has spent years in the tents of Bedouin Arabia. Al-Muqaddima writes in full leisure. Due to his deep insight and erudition, Abdur Rahman Al Hadarami has become 'Ibn Khaldun'! The progenitor of history.
Speaking of another, the day he was born on earth, the day he had to flee in fear, riding on the lap of his sick mother, had to cross a long mountain path, a remote desert! But this child later became the world-famous hero, the legend Gazi Salahuddin.
There are hundreds of such histories in the lives of hundreds of people.
In almost every society. Those who know the history of Islam know that the beloved Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) had to flee from Makkah in the darkness of night in a single garment to Madinah, and another Prophet of Allaah, Hazrat Musa (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him), had to flee with his life. These two great men were prophets and messengers chosen by Allah. Their words are different. But the people I talked about before were very ordinary people. All these individuals who escaped have made history one day.
Today, those who have survived the ordeal of death or destruction at various junctures of life, will remember that God has a great purpose behind keeping you alive, you can make history if you want and try, can become an integral part of history.
So there is no reason to despair. Set goals, stick to goals. Believe me, history will be made by your hand! All that is needed is patience, hard work, and concentration!
