Have you seen the unity?
But where is ours?
Where is the Unity amongst the Muslims?
Alas!We can’t defend ourselves.
Today as a Ummah we are divided amongst ourselves into sects and groups for which our strength as One Ummah is reduced.While Allah has commanded us to not to get divided.As we read in Qur’an:
“And hold firmly to the rope of Allah all together and do not become divided.”
And the worst thing is that we are killing and abusing our own brother just because they are Shia,Sunni,Wahabi,Deobandi,etc.And the enemy of Islam are inciting the sectarian conflict amongst Muslims so that we remain busy fighting each other and shed the blood of our own Muslims brother.Allah has repeatedly said in the Qur’an that believers are brothers and allies of one another.Have you forgotten it??
The believers are but brothers, [Qur’an 49:10]
The believing men and believing women are allies of one another. [Qur’an 9:71]
But today in the name of sects. we have turned into foes.
Then another disease we are suffering from is Nationalism. Trust me Nationalism is just like a cancer to this Ummah. It seems it is not just sufficient to say, “I am a Muslim” anymore, rather we find people saying they are a ” <Insert Nationality Here> Muslim”. We seem to overlook major faults with somebody of our own nationality, race, group, etc., but are quick to criticize others. Our Blessed Land has been broken into pieces which has caused smaller entities that are disunited and divided and which has caused Muslims to loose their identity. We became Pakistani, Kuwaitis, Syrian, Egyptian, Algerian and Jordanian first and Muslims second. We are over 57 countries divided by artificial borders imposed on us by those filthy western bloodsuckers colonialist who destroyed our Islamic Identity, burnt our books, killed our forefathers and now we are so proud of being a Pakistani, Algerian, Syrian. Shame on Us!!
Remember O MUSLIMS! Divide & Rule is the Devil’s tool. And due to this we can see not only do Jews and Christians oppose us, but we also see Hindus, Communists, etc. opposing us all over the world. Since Muslims are divided, less fortunate Muslims continue to be persecuted and oppressed all over the world [Take the example of Palestine, Kashmir, Checheniya, Uighurs].We are too busy being proud Palestinian, Jordanian, Yemeni, Turkish, Iranian, Iraqi, Saudi Arabian, Syrian, Pakistani, Kashmiri, Chechen, Bosnian, Algerian, Libyan, Egyptian, Moroccan, Lebanese, Bengali, etc. How many more nationalities are we going to see in the UMMAH ? How many more divisions? How many more separations ? The Kafirs are killing us one by one, as seen in the “New World Order”.Divide-and-conquer is really working on the UMMAH. Lets all work together to put an end to this nonsense called Nationalism, a completely alien, and forbidden ideology in Islam.Nationalism is also a way of disuniting the UMMAH. As currently seen in the world, we are over FIFTY-FIVE MUSLIM COUNTRIES AND GROWING ! There should only be ONE Muslim country (Khilafah).
It is a shameful day for the Ummah of Hazrat Muhammad ﷺ being a silent spectator on the face of murder, rape and genocide of our mothers, sons, daughters, brothers and elders. We fail to utter a single word, let alone raise a finger, when we see our fellow Muslims imprisoned , tortured, house-arrested, extradited or slain for fear of being ‘linked’ to them.We can’t help them out of fear that the enemy nation may attack us for this reason.
Haven’t we heard this Hadees where Nu’man b. Bashir reported Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) as saying:
The similitude of believers in regard to mutual love, affection, fellow-feeling is that of one body; when any limb of it aches, the whole body aches, because of sleeplessness and fever.[Sahih Muslim 2586 a]
Nu’man b. Bashir reported Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) as saying:The believers are like one person; if his head aches, the whole body aches with fever and sleeplessness.
[Sahih Muslim 2586 c]
Don’t we feel the pain of our own Brothers who are suffering across the country and around the world?
Or are we too insensitive?
The Muslims worldwide who are supposed to speak as one entity yet they remain silent and don’t move their tongue while these endless atrocities are taking place every minute of every hour of every day and Muslim blood is shed in the name of TERRORISM while the Muslim Ummah is silently watching! Our brother and sisters are dying and starving but we can’t feed them because they are from different country. We can’t help them out of fear that the enemy nation may attack us for this reason. Allah has said in Qur’an that Believers are brothers, and also urged us to fight for the oppressed people who cry out for help, and also commanded us not to take disbelievers as ally. But we are not doing so.
If the enemy captures a single Muslim, it becomes wajib (obligatory) on every one who has the ability, to rush to their rescue (even without seeking anyone’s permission). It is apparent that it is compulsory on everyone, similar to the situation where the enemy invades our land. Moreover, saving our brothers is of a higher priority, as the sanctity of a Muslim is greater (than the sanctity of a State).
The Islamic community throughout the world are facing challenges, and these are increasing daily and taking various shapes. The question is how to resist the struggle? How can Muslims stand up against the world’s aggression, which takes different forms? What should we do in this situation? There is only one way out for Muslims – to regain their former unity. The key to our unity is remembrance of Allah. We have to Revive Islamic Spirit within Us. We have to hold onto Quran & Sunnah. When Muslims make remembrance of the Almighty, they get a feeling, that generates the bond of love and brotherhood among all brothers in faith. And it happens on its own. They begin to feel their brother’s pain in the distance. If they hear, that their brother in faith is ill, they immediately respond and come to help him. This becomes a pattern, when we remember Allah. But, unfortunately – and this concerns the whole Ummah! – this solution is still neglected. Everybody comes up with different solutions. One suggests organizing a party, another one – conferences, the third publishes books, where he is trying to prove something, and all that is done to unite the Muslims. Whereas the tool to our unity is in our hands. It is mentioning the Almighty. If we think from morning till night about everything except Allah, of course, our hearts will be filled with vice.And just when the Muslims forgot remembering Allah Almighty and His commandments in the Quran, the whole Ummah gets attacked by the ‘predators’. Just as a predator attacks the prey, they attacked Muslims all over the world. The Messenger of Allah ﷺ said in a Hadith about it: “They bore down upon Muhammad’s Ummah ﷺ like wild beasts upon their prey!” It is exactly so. And it is nobody’s, but our fault.Our salvation lies in remembrance of the Almighty.Only when Muslims unite and become a united group, they will manage to stand up to anyone and anything.Unity can only be achieved if Muslims get away from unnecessary disputes among themselves, stop fueling a feud within the community, when Muslims will listen to Allah’s Ayah in the Qur’an, where He says: “And hold firmly to the rope of Allah all together and do not become divided.”[Quran 3:103]. All Muslims must unite, with no exception, from the rulers up to each member of the Muslim communities that live on Earth. After all, Muslims today are one third of the total population of the globe. This is a huge number!If Muslims do not unite, no other methods, offered by some scholars or Islamic movements, will help to resist the world aggression.
“…..And fight against the disbelievers collectively as they fight against you collectively…..” [Quran 9:36]
