“Blessed is He in Whose hands is Dominion; and He over all things has complete Power”
It is a basic belief in Islam that Allah is the Ultimate Cause of all events. It is also a basic belief that the conditions we find are from Allah.
Say, “All [things] are from Allah .”
Concerning our current condition:
The Prophet (ﷺ) said: The people will soon summon one another to attack you as people when eating invite others to share their dish. Someone asked: Will that be because of our small numbers at that time? He replied: No, you will be numerous at that time: but you will be scum and rubbish like that carried down by a torrent, and Allah will take fear of you from the breasts of your enemy and place enervation into your hearts. Someone asked: What is wahn (enervation). Messenger of Allah (ﷺ): He replied: Love of the world and dislike of death.
Over the last 400 years, Islam has been virtually annihilated. Allah has left Muslims with no authority, even to dictate their own lives. Here is the current list of Muslim lands either being destroyed by war, or existing under despotism, not to mention widespread poverty, chaos, illiteracy, and starvation.
- Sierra Leone
- Ivory Coast
It would seem the Muslim World is a total disaster. And Muslims have yet to respond, having no unified intellectual or political movement, and little discussion or action on the Obligations of collective reform. So, what is a reasonable expectation for when we stand for Accounting in front of Allah? The entirety of Islam is based on Iman and ‘Amaal – committed Faith and Responsible Action.
