What’s next?

Now it’s settled that the next president of the United States of America is Donald Trump, what can be done now?

First and foremost I should inform you that I do not live in America, but in Denmark. Can I relate to you? Yes I can. For we people here in Denmark don’t have the most fit leaders in the country. They are certainly not wise, and they also like to discriminate minorities, especially muslims. Denmark also had made headlines regarding refugees and so on.

What is my point in all of this?

We live in a time of ignorance. We live in a time full of greed and arrogance. Our leaders around the world are more concerned about themselves rather than us. Is there a way we can change that? Well, perhaps there’s an answer to our problem.

If the people are upright, then their kings will remain upright. If they turn away from righteousness, then their kings will also turn away from righteousness.

Ibn Al-Qayyim

The leaders are the reflection of the people. In other words, we need to have the qualities we want in a leader. If we want a leader, who is kind, generous, righteous, honorable and just a person of good, then we have to be that as well.

We can no longer aspect our leaders to fix the world. If we want to make the world a better place, then we have to become a better people. It will not be easy, and the progress will be slow. But at the end of the line it’ll be worth it.

There is always hope, but we have to believe in it, and we need to be the hope.

May Peace be with You
