Alas a glimmer of hope – Thank you @JustinTrudeau | #Canada

The video shows Canadian children welcoming the first batch of Syrian refugees by reciting the same verses which were recited by the people of Madinah for Prophet Muhammad (Peace & blessings be upon him) .

This is a wonderful gesture by the Canadian government, unlike their neighbor America who have projected the refugees as terrorists and fanatics. The Canadians took that fear and transformed it into social cohesion by making the refugees feel at home. The newly elected PM Justin Trudeau was himself present to welcome the first batch of refugees.

While rest of the world has fallen for the usual propaganda, the newly elected Canadian government decided not to follow the mainstream political thinking and instead they opened their arms for the Syrian refugees who are running away from the very same monsters which were created by the coalition of USA-UK in the first place.

For the time being, lets just praise the way Canadians have come forth and embraced the refugees as fellow human beings. For those of you who are wondering what the verses mean, well here you go:

طلع البدر علينا
ṭala‘a ‘l-badru ‘alaynā
The full moon rose over us

من ثنيات الوداع
min thaniyyāti ‘l-wadā‘
From the valley of Wada’‘
وجب الشكر علينا
wajaba ‘l-shukru ‘alaynā
And it is incumbent upon us to show gratitude

ما دعى لله داع
mā da‘ā li-l-lāhi dā‘
For as long as anyone in existence calls out to God
أيها المبعوث فينا
’ayyuha ‘l-mab‘ūthu fīnā
Oh our Messenger (Emissary) amongst us

جئت بالأمر المطاع
ji’ta bi-l-’amri ‘l-muṭā‘
Who comes with the exhortations (good advices/commandments) to be heeded

جئت شرفت المدينة
ji’ta sharrafta ‘l-madīnah
You have brought to this city nobility

مرحبا يا خير داع
marḥaban yā khayra dā‘
Welcome you who call us to a good way

    1. Very true but then where has the individual characteristic gone? Trudeau isn`t from any other planet right, if he has the vision to adopt his own policies for the best interest of Canadians, why can`t rest of the world leaders be like this. Instead of being stooges :/

      And it is really amazing, your analysis is always spot on. Thank you 🙂
