﴿ خواطر متناثرة بقلم ابراهيم حجاج

ربى حيى كريم ستير رحيم ،،،

على مسرح السياسة لابد لأقنعة المنافقين أن تتساقط لتظهر وجوههم القبيحة مهما طالت الملهاة ،،،

تمكين الأمةِ وصلاحها لن يتحقق بجهاز تحكم عن بُعد أو كيبورد ، انهض وشارك بإصلاح نفسك ومن حولك ،،،

الأُمَناءُ قِلة ،،،

سننتصر بقدرِ الله .. همسة فى أُذن كل مهموم بأحوال الأمة ،،،

الله أكبر ولله العزة ولرسوله وللمؤمنين ولكن المنافقين لا يعلمون ،،،

﴿ اللهمَّ اني اسألك شهادةً في سبيلِك لي ولأبنائى وأحب الناس إلى قلبي

لا تبخل بآراءك ؛ فلن يرثها أحدٌ ليخبر بها .. فربّ كلمة ترضى ربك فتنجيك ،،،

للأمة بابٌ إذا فُتِح ؛ أعزها الله . إنه باب الجهاد ؛ لعن الله من يسعى لغلقه ،،،

" أقبح أنواع الجبن " امتناع العلماء عن قول الحقِ وقت المحن والفتن ،،،

ليست فلسطين وحدها المحتلة ؛ بل الأمة الإسلامية كلها . وانظروا لطغاتها وجيوشهم لتعلموا صدق ما أقول ،،،

يدّعون أنهم يمثلون شعوبهم ؛ وهم يمثلون على شعوبهم .. الإستخفاف حرفة الطغاة ،،،

يجب نصرة أهل السُنة فى كل مكان خاصة فى العراقِ والشام ،،،

نُريدها إسلامية وإلا فلا .. عن ثوراتنا أتحدث ،،،

الإنبطاح صنعة من لا يجيد الكفاح ،،،

الإعتذار شيمة الأحرار ،،،


أيا ظالمى ! محكمة العدل الموعد ؛ وعند الله يجتمع الخصوم ،،،

أحمق يتمنى ما عند غيره ؛ وحمقى يتمنون ما عنده .. ليتهم انشغلوا عما فى أيدى بعضهم بشكر ربهم ؛ قال الله : " لَئِن شَكَرْتُمْ لأَزِيدَنَّكُمْ وَلَئِن كَفَرْتُمْ إِنَّ عَذَابِي لَشَدِيد " ،،،

البدع والشبهات أخطر من المعاصى والشهوات ،،،

صمودك أمام عدوك يجبره على التراجع ؛ فاثبت ،،،

الكرم خلف ؛ والبخل تلف ،،،

أحمقُ الحمقى من يخدعه أحمق ،،،

لا تشارك من تحب آلامك لكيلا تؤلمهم ،،،

اشتاقت لأبنها الشهيد ؛ فحققت أمنيتها قذيفة ،،،

بحـث
