“Never will Allah allow domination for the kuffaar over the Mu’mineen.” (Qur’aan)
“Allah suffices for the Mu’mineen in war. Allah is powerful and mighty.” (Qur’aan)
“(O kuffaar!) Never will your army benefit you even if it be numerous, Verily, Allah is with the Mu’mineen.” (Qur’aan)
The Qur’aan and Hadith contain many such narrations and promises of nusrat (divine aid) for the Believers. Every Muslim believes in the truth of the Divine Promises. But in today’s world we observe humiliation and defeat for Muslims on all fronts. What is the mystery underlying this contradiction between the condition of the Ummah and the Divine Promise of Nusrah and Izzat (Honour)?
In reality there is no mystery. The scenario prevailing in the lands of Islam is the direct product of the immorality, disobedience, kufr and bid’ah of the Ummah at large. The evilapostate (murtadd) rulers saddled over the Ummah in every Muslim country are the reflections of our misdeeds.
Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) had stated with the greatest clarity that rulers are the reflection of the deeds of the people. Our evil condition is mirrored in the rulers, and our state of degradation and defeat is the direct consequence of our transgression.
No amount of slogans and howling epithets against America will salvage the condition of the Ummah. The one and only cure for the diseases of this Ummah is Inaabat ilallaah —to turn in repentance and with ibaadat to Allah Ta’ala.
