After two weeks without athan (calls to prayer) echoed in al-Aqsa mosque. The mosque without congregation prayers were hindered by the excessive tyranny of the Israeli government. The demands of Muslims in al-Quds and Palestine, which are also the demands of all Muslims of the world to Israel to eliminate all electronic gates are almost beyond the deadline of the international ultimatum. Thursday, 7/27 Israel finally surrendered. After the bleeding incidents with the insistence of thousands of people who crowded in front of mosque gates, al-Aqsa Mosque was reopened. Although there is still one door, Bab al-Hittah (Gate of Remission) that has not been opened freely. Finally it can be sterilized from metal detector.

"Say, "In the bounty of Allah and in His mercy - in that let them rejoice; it is better than what they accumulate."(Surah Yunus:58)

The resonance of Takbir echoed everywhere. Not only in the courtyard of al-Aqsa Mosque, but also in various parts of Palestine, even in many parts of the world. Praise to Allah’s magnificent triumph for a determination and patience.

"And by the dawn when it breathes" (Surah At-Takwir: 18)

Thus the vow of Allah, as it sounds every dawn. He wants to breathe millions of hope in the hearts of every His servants. If a person is wrapped in a difficulty, every dawn blowing is a new hope for him with the arrival of convenience. If he is overwhelmed with grief and sorrow, along with the coming of the dawn he smiles to welcome joy and happiness. If he has been a good believer on yesterday, then this new day is an opportunity to increase his goodness and spread its impact as broad as possible to humans. If he is a sinner, then it is time to end his stupidity with repentance.

The triumph of Allah came to destroy the devil's conspiracy which, although neat and solid, but the devil's tricks remains weak in the face of this limitless power.

"Indeed, the plot of Satan has ever been weak." (Surah an-Nisa ': 76)

In this world that full of choice, every human has a risk of his choice. The word of  ukhuwah (brotherhood in general) in the Qur'an suggests there are three great communities. (1) ukhuwah imaniyah (brotherhood in faith) (2) ukhuwah kufriyah (brotherhood united by disbelief) (3) ukhuwah syaithaniyah (brotherhood with satan).

The ideological brethren of the faithful (Surah al-Hujurat: 10) has a risk in the world. Ostracized, hostile, terrorized, exposed to various negative stigma. However, it will lead to a great victory in the afterlife. Often Allah also shows the victory in the world.

The brotherhood of the disbelievers with the hypocrites is equated with their interests and their enmity towards this Ummah (Surah al-Hashr: 11) They may appear strong and solid, impressed by their networks and material gear, but in fact they are fragile and diverse (Al-Hashr : 14).

The climax is a brotherhoodthat is deceived by a devil deceptionthat plunges every children of Adam into an eternal companion in misery.

"Indeed, the wasteful are brothers of the devils, and ever has Satan been to his Lord ungrateful." (Surah Al-Isra': 27)

The wasteful(mubadzir) that has been impressed only in the consumption of food or consumer needs is actually happening to the potential goodness that Allahgives to humans. If he does not use it to the fullest, then he is potentially friends and brotherhoodwith the devil.

It's time to choose the brotherhood and find the community closely. Every friendship and brotherhoodalways has its risks. But someone cannot live apart from the three communities above. He will not be able to live alone without the choice of joining many communities that approach the above three categories. Choose intelligently. Dawn will inform you withthe hope of victory.
