7. Not only that, where is our outrage over the atrocities that these same countries are waging across the Muslim world, on the Ummah of the Prophet Muhammad صلى الله عليه وسلم? Where are our boycotts and our protests? Where are our calls on our governments and armies to step in and protect those who are being thrown into furnaces in Iraq, those who are being imprisoned in China, those who are being oppressed in Afghanistan, those who are being murdered and displaced in Syria, those who are being shot and locked away in Kashmir, those who are starving in Yemen, those who are being stripped of their rights to practice the Deen in Egypt, those who are still suffering in Palestine? And, the list goes on and on, Suban’Allah. I am feeling so overwhelmed writing this, because I feel like our priorities are so off kilter that we have completely lost the way of the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم
and the Companions RA. This is how we are honouring them? Did they not swear to bring the Law of Allah on the earth and stand up for the oppressed? Did they not sacrifice their lives and wealth to make sure to preserve this Deen and the legacy of our Beloved صلى الله عليه وسلم? Yet, we find that we are the most ungrateful people, who only stand for what does not inconvenience us. I speak for myself as well. We are who the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم described:

Thauban reported that the Messenger of Allah صلى الله عليه وسلمsaid: “It is near that the nations will call one another against you just as the eaters call one another to their dishes.” Somebody asked: “Is this because we will be few in numbers that day?” He said: “Nay, but that day you shall be numerous, but you will be like the foam of the sea, and Allah will take the fear of you away from your enemies and will place weakness into your hearts.” Somebody asked: “What is this weakness?” He said: “The love of the world and the dislike of death.” (Abu Daud)

These are the things that we must truly reflect upon, Insha’Allah. This has been brewing for a long time and this battle will not end anytime soon, but we must be diligent and gain confidence in our Deen and the way of our Messenger .صلى الله عليه وسلم

“O believers! Whoever among you abandons their faith, Allah will replace them with others who love Him and are loved by Him. They will be humble with the believers but firm towards the disbelievers, struggling in the Way of Allah; fearing no blame from anyone. This is the favour of Allah. He grants it to whoever He wills. And Allah is All-Bountiful, All-Knowing.” [The Noble Qur’an 5:54]

“We were the most humiliated people on earth and Allah gave us honour through Islam. If we ever seek honour through anything else, Allah will humiliate us again.” (Umar ibn Al-Khattab RA)

We are far from where we should be and behaving irrationally. Right now, we are all divided and walking different paths. This what Shaytan wants and it gives the enemies of Islam too many opportunities to wage war against us. A war that we will never win without the right weapons. It is beautiful to love Allah and the Prophet of Allah صلى الله عليه وسلم, but that love should not be mere lip service. It has to mean something and there necessarily has to be action behind that love. If we all truly turn back to the Qur’an and Sahih Sunnah, seek Allah’s pleasure in all we do, abandon the Haram and doubtful matters, then we will be a force to be reckoned with all together as one. Then no one could defeat us or humiliate us, because just like in the Battle of Badr, Allah SWT and the Heavens would be on our side and the enemies of Islam would fall one after another.

“O you who have believed, if you support Allah, He will support you and plant firmly your feet. But those who disbelieve – for them is misery, and He will waste their deeds. That is because they detested what Allah has revealed, so He rendered worthless their deeds.” [The Noble Qur’an 47:7-9]
