AoAwRwB,

If something from what I wrote doesn’t correspond with Quran and Sunnah then I renounce it and I ask Allah’s forgiveness due to my ignorance.

17-year-old Mohammad bin Qasim attacked the sub-continent Pak-o-Hind and defeated infidel ruler Raja Dahir because there came to him news of a Muslim women who was raped!!! And today our beloved Prophet (Khatimun Nabieen Mohammad al-Ameen) PBUH has been disrespected and disgraced in the whole world and we just sit and watch with shame and sorrow and most of us don’t even care.

 (Quran) 80:18. “From what thing did He create him (man)?”

 80:19. “From Nutfah (male and female semen drops) He created him, and then set him in due proportion.”

We were nothing when our Lord created us, isn’t our creation enough evidence that He will resurrect us again for the real world. What will your answer be to your Lord as to how much of Quran and Hadith you read, understood and followed? We deny it plainly and do nothing about it. He blesses us with many blessing and every time we thank God but do not follow His teachings. And if He tests us with hard time our heart hardened with bitterness towards Him rather than humiliating and starts questioning and blaming Allah.

100:6 Truly man is, to his Lord, ungrateful.

Why do you have to follow democracy (human made laws) if you’re already given laws revealed from Allah, Quran and Sunnah. Khilafat is what we Muslim ruled the world with, weren’t we successful in world then? America, the source of democracy let’s Pakistan rule by dictatorship?? Hello!! no... oh wait...... yeah, DAHHH..

Everyone knows the current situation of Muslim world. Everyone knows the kind of hypocrite government in Muslim world. Everyone knows how the Muslim country bows down to pressure from west. Everyone knows the kind of humiliation we are faced with around the globe. And I hope that you also know how far we have gone astray from (Siratul Mustakeem) Straight Path (Quran and Sunnah). My friends it is all evident from Quran and Sunnah as to what happens to a nation when it fails to follow Gods revelation.

6:42. Verily, We sent (Messengers) to many nations before you (0 Muhammad). And We seized them with extreme poverty (or loss in wealth) and loss in health with calamities so that they might believe with humility.

6:43. When Our Torment reached them, why then did they not believe with humility? But their hearts became hardened, and Shaitan (Satan) made fair seeming to them that which they used to do.

6:44. So, when they forgot (the warning) with which they had been reminded, We opened to them the gates of every (pleasant) thing, until in the midst of their enjoyment in that which they were given, all of a sudden, We took them to punishment, and lo! They were plunged into destruction with deep regrets and sorrows. 

It is with no doubt that we today Muslim followers of Islam are attacked and occupied by foreign infidel forces. The crusade has already started against Islam and Muslims with cartoons of our beloved Prophet PBUH as war drums. We all know that most of our ummah is ignorant of Islam or illiterate of Quran and Sunnah. Quran and Sunnah is our very base and purpose of creation in this world.

Most of us get confused with current wars when we try to make logic with our worldly knowledge. Do you ever try to look at with Allah’s prospective, do you try to read and understand Quran? Except for just clinging to one excuse that Islam does not allow innocent killings?

Not saying that it is right, but we are not sure of who does that either? It might be US. A fighter who gives his life to Allah can never disobey His commands. Friends with peaceful protest! Can you tell me a way to save the oppressed? And a way to fight back when rockets are fired at us and Muslim blood flows? In Palestine, Afghan, Iraq, Chechnya and elsewhere. We don’t know the realities on ground as to what the Mujahideen goes through but you would have to agree to the fact that there is a force out there that is fighting the west and is defeating them.

 8:39 And fight them on until there is no more tumult or oppression, and there prevail justice and faith in Allah altogether and everywhere; but if they cease, verily Allah doth see all that they do. 

8:73 The Unbelievers are protectors, one of another: Unless ye do this, (protect each other), there would be tumult and oppression on earth, and great mischief. 

My beloved and peaceful ummah majority of us think that we are too weak against the west or foreign forces. If you think we are too weak against the west, then our Prophet PBUH wouldn’t have fought Badar (313 vs. 1,000) or Uhad(700 vs. 3,000) or Khandaq (3,000 vs. 10,000) against Kuffar and Mushriqeen. Isn’t that an excellent example for Muslims? Why didn’t the Prophet (PBUH) use logic or was it TRUST in Allah? Why didn’t he (PBUH) preach the sahabas to get educated first and then become an economic power or become rich with many horses and then fight?

Where will the help from God come if you were of equal power? Something ones with weak faith fail to understand. Afghanistan-Russian war is a clear example in our lives and so will be Iraq, wherever the help is coming from it continues to come in the favour of believer and the fighters, who scarifies their lives, who have a little bit of honour left in their hearts, who fight for Haq, for truth, for Islam, for Muslim land or in the name of Islam. People following logic cannot understand faith. Here is what Allah commands about fighting for Islam. No one can sacrifice ones life unless the one who believes in resurrection and see Allah in front of them. 

4:74. Let those (believers) who sell the life of this world for the Hereafter fight in the Cause of Allah, and whoso fights in the Cause of Allah, and is killed or gets victory, We shall bestow on him a great reward. 

4:75. And what is wrong with you that you fight not in the Cause of Allah, and for those weak, ill-treated and oppressed among men, women, and children, whose cry is: “Our Lord! Rescue us from this town whose people are oppressors; and raise for us from You one who will protect, and raise for us from You one who will help.” 

4:76. Those who believe, fight in the Cause of Allah, and those who lives for the Cause of Allah. Those! They are the truthful. 

We prostrate (before) world because our parents and society prostrate them before us and expect the same for us. We believe in this world and our parents and not Allah. Believing is following by shown actions. Because how much of Allah’s revelation we follow? Nothing except for a couple of prayers. Jews and Christine prays more than us. What differentiate us from them? They believe in Lord of universe too. We can only differentiate from Jews and Christine’s if we follow our Book completely or else we are no better than them. 

So strive my peaceful ummah. Strive to bring Khilafat (laws of Allah). See what’s around you? Think for a while, why was a Prophet sent? Why is this humiliation? Why was Quran revealed to you? What’s in Quran? All your loved ones and all your riches are a test for you. Does your heart still pumps or is it dead? 

9:23. O you who believe! Take not for Auliya’ (supporters and helpers) your fathers and your brothers if they prefer disbelief to belief. And whoever of you does so, then he is one of the zalimun (wrong-doers, etc.). 

9:24. Say: If your fathers, your sons, your brothers, your wives, your kindred, the wealth that you have gained, the commerce in which you fear a decline, and the dwellings in which you delight ... are dearer to you than Allah and His Messenger, and striving hard and fighting in His Cause , then wait until Allah brings about His Decision (torment). And Allah guides not the people who are Al-Fasiqun (the rebellious, disobedient to Allah). 

80:33. Then, when there comes As-Sakhkhah (the Day of Resurrection’s second blowing of Trumpet), 

80:34. That Day shall a man flee from his brother, 

80:35. And from his mother and his father, 

80:36. And from his wife and his children. 

80:37. Everyman, that Day, will have enough to make him careless of others. 

May Allah open our hearts and fill it with true faith and believes.

Wassalaam

Faisal
