Today the Muslim Ummah is facing problems from all sides. Everyone is concerned in trying to find a solution. Different methods have been adopted in an effort to restore the peace the Ummah once enjoyed. But what is the way the Quraan Shareef advocates and what was the way of the Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum)? Allah Ta‘ala says:
إِنَّ اللَّـهَ لا يُغَيِّرُ ما بِقَومٍ حَتّى يُغَيِّروا ما بِأَنفُسِهِم
“Allah Ta‘ala will not change the condition of a nation until they change themselves.”
History bears testimony that when people obeyed Allah Ta‘ala and held on to deen, then everything worked in their favour. The moment they changed their approach, the favourable conditions which they enjoyed, changed.
India was under Muslim rule for eight hundred years, but when disobedience crept into their lives, their sovereignty also fell away. Similar is the case of Spain and Palestine. It is time that the Ummah adopts this attitude of loyalty and obedience to Allah Ta‘ala in order to attract His divine aid and assistance.
