Upon you is responsibility for yourselves

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم


O you who have believed, upon you is [responsibility for] yourselves. Those who have gone astray will not harm you when you have been guided. To Allah is you return all together; then He will inform you of what you used to do. [Qur’an, 5:105]


Religion is not for control. A lot of times we get upset, angry or frustrated because we cannot control others. It becomes more annoying if we are sure that we are right. But Allah tells us to let go. Ultimately you are responsible for yourselves. Our job is to inform, to invite, to help out- but we will not be held responsible. Moreover, those who have gone astray cannot harm you when you are guided- so why are you upset? You can hate actions but don’t hate the person. Pray for people’s guidance, be a good example and be at peace.
