It’s about his cause then, not about his person. Though it is true Obaidah was very dear to many of us, the cause he sacrificed his life for is also dear, it’s dearer than lives and properties; it’s about the Holy Land. Dozens of martyrs followed on his footsteps, they did not hesitate to sacrifice their souls for Palestine and the Aqsa Mosque, and they were brave as usual. Let’s look at ourselves again. How about us? Were we brave enough to sacrifice our time for that holy cause? Were we generous enough to sacrifice our money for it? Or we were just good at talks?
The tears we shed for Obaidah should not dry that easy without proving they were sincere. Our deeds should reflect our sincerity. And although it’s been a year since his martyrdom, a lot still can be done to serve the cause he died for.
Once again, goodbye Obaidah!
