Muammar Gaddafi Another Tyrant who is Gone

After the news of Gaddafi's departure reached the Muslim world, a lot of Muslims felt sorry for him. They couldn't see a Muslim ruler being humiliated this way. In fact, I myself was got a little effected. Of course my reason what not because Gaddafi's was humiliated. I was actually relieved to see that. However, my reason to have a reaction is because Gaddafi had departed from this world and he now has to face his creator.
ذين اذا اصابتهم مصيبة قالوا انا لله وانا اليه راجعون
"Who, when a misfortune overtakes them, say: 'Surely we belong to Allah and to Him shall we return' (Quran 2:156).

Gaddafi was a tyrant and there is huge punishment for oppressors.

As for my view on the revolution which is happening in the Muslim world today, I don't fully support it. Its funny how Muslims got up one day, and starting taking up arms. Where were the Muslim for the last few decades ? The result of this revolution will not shift toward an Islamic governance. In fact, if one studies history these revolutions which are occurring now are no difference from the Abbasid revolutions. In the past the Abbasids exploited the emotional events of the Ahlul bayts (as), to gather forces to overthrow the Ummavi tyrants. However, once they got in power they became even worst rulers than the Ummavis. The Ummavis after Yazid, usually left you alone if you stayed in Mecca and Madina. However, this was not the case with the Abbasids. Likewise, these revolution will provide disastrous result. Then again even in the Ummavi line of rule we had great rulers like Umar ibn Abdul Aziz (ra), and Muawiyah II (ra). Then among the Abbasids, Mamoon Rasheed made a lot of progress for the Muslim nation. Let's hope Allah (swt) has a mercy on us, and allows us to live to see the good times as well.
