immoral action

The older I get the more I sympathise with Draco Malfoy. His two best friends were barely intelligent enough to hold a conversation and his father - his role model - was cold, prejudiced and cruel. As a result, he was incredibly isolated. He watched as Harry Potter - who he had intended to befriend - made other friends, constantly saved the wizarding world, became generally happy and was crowned a hero. In the meantime, he lived in constant fear of disappointing his father and the house he was so proud of, and he tried to prove himself but continually went unnoticed. He sunk further and further into seclusion until he felt he had no-one to confide in, was placed under immense pressure to perform immoral actions and saw the horrors of the death-eaters first hand. He made mistakes, and for a while carried his father’s prejudices with him, but honestly he isn’t given enough credit for making it out of that dark place to become a loving husband, excellent father and generally good man - far from the school bully he is portrayed as.

One who gives up his beloved to avoid a haraam relationship and then was enabled to be with his beloved in a halaal way, or Allah compensated him with some one better, as Yoosuf al-Siddeeq avoided the wife of al-‘Azeez for the sake of Allah, and chose prison over immoral action, and Allah compensated him by giving him full authority in the land to take possession therein when or where he wanted, and the woman came to him humbly asking for a halaal relationship, so he married her and when he entered upon her he said: This is better than what you wanted.

Think about how Allah, may He be glorified and exalted, rewarded him for the hardship of prison and gave him full authority in the land to take possession therein when or where he wanted, and subdued for him the wife of al-‘Azeez, and she and the other women attested to his innocence. This is what Allah ordained for His slaves in the past and at present until the Day of Resurrection.

I want to make it clear that when I “generalize” all police officers, I am aware that I am doing so. With every critical post of the police I make, there’s always those supporters of police who come out of the woodwork and tell me to stop “grouping all cops in with the few bad apples, because that’s not fair.” You know what really isn’t fair? The fact that there is an entire group of people who have a monopoly on force. The fact that that this same group of people, when caught doing things like say, executing innocent human beings, are disproportionally treated as if they are above the law. When I say I am anti-cop, I mean that I do not support the system that they are an integral part of. Though you may know some friendly neighborhood cop who’s a “good guy™”, it does not excuse the fact that they have consented to participate in immoral actions. No, not all of them are murderers, but all of them participate in theft in the form of fines being imposed (e.g traffic tickets), all of them participate in jailing innocent human beings by arresting them under the pretense of unjust laws (e.g. the war on drugs), etc. The very nature of what our justice system has allowed and forced police to do is a crime against humanity and by choosing that as a profession, every single cop has consented to partake in immoral action. That is what I mean when I say all cops are bastards.
