Jihad by an atheist
I know someone who was unfairly dismissed from work and has spent 1 year “fighting” for justice. This has been done by standing up for his rights (QAWM) regarding privacy, integrity, and equality, communicating what happened and why it wa
s wrong, IN WRITING, using polite and professional language (GOOD WORDS) revealing the truth (HAQQ) about the corruption that had been going on within the top-heavy management, and being firm about wanting to put things right (ASLAH) so that bullying and harrassment cannot be allowed to continue in the company for other workers who are LESS ABLE to stand up for their rights because they fear losing their jobs, and seeking compensation for his own suffering too. AND NEVER giving up despite seemingly endless opposition and further bullying/scare tactics/legal threats.(SABR) I see this as STRIVING for the values that Allah has made clear to us, and an inspiring case of “jihad” . Who would have thought… all this from my “atheist” father!
