Turning Back To The Teachings Of Quran And Sunnah, A Way of Deliverance Of the Muslim Ummah

18 August 2015

By Al-Ikhwah Al-Mujahidun

All know that Islamic Ummah is grappling with colossal tragedies, foreign interventions and internal conflicts. Muslims are divided into different factions and groups. Many Muslim countries are entangled in wars in one way or the other. Existence of nations and societies are facing tremendous crisis. The economic situation is getting worse by the day, the level of unemployment is rising while level of education is declining, social set-ups are being shaken, pristine cultural values are being replaced with foreign culture and many other such troubling trends……

Meanwhile, the current situation of Muslim Ummah is intolerable because of myriad of different notions and geographical divisions; the doors of mutual understanding seems to be closed due to futile ethnical, factional and regional bias. So in such scenario it is important that every person, society and nation should strive for mutual reform and peace among Muslims as best as it can and begin to take sincere steps for salvation of Muslim Ummah. They should not submit to the ongoing untoward incidents and events. There is no room for disappointment and discouragement in Islam.

إِنَّهُ لا يَيْأَسُ مِنْ رَوْحِ اللَّهِ إِلاَّ الْقَوْمُ الكَافِرُونَ ( سوره يوسف، ایة ۸۷)

None but unbelievers despair of Allah's mercy. (Surah 12, Verse 87)

Islamic Ummah has a lot of chances to catapult from the status quo and leap towards success and development. Islamic societies have such academic and intellectual principles that if applied security, peace and stability will come assuredly.

Following the teachings of the Holy Book of Allah, the Almighty and the life of the Prophet Mohammad (peace be upon him) and practical adherence to the guidance and provision of both teachings in our life, the Muslim Ummah can vault out of the situation it grapples with. The Prophet Mohammad (Peace be upon him) says.

(تَرَكْتُ فِيكُمْ أَمْرَيْنِ لَنْ تَضِلُّوا مَا تَمَسَّكْتُمْ بِهِمَا: كِتَابَ اللهِ وَسُنَّةَ نَبِيِّهِ)

Differences of views and thoughts among people are a natural and accepted phenomenon but for our internal disputes we have been instructed to turn to the teaching of Quran and Sunnah. Only the views compatible with the teachings of Quran and Sunnah should be followed.

﴿يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آَمَنُوا أَطِيعُوا اللَّهَ وَأَطِيعُوا الرَّسُولَ وَأُولِي الْأَمْرِ مِنْكُمْ فَإِنْ تَنَازَعْتُمْ فِي شَيْءٍ فَرُدُّوهُ إِلَى اللَّهِ وَالرَّسُولِ إِنْ كُنْتُمْ تُؤْمِنُونَ بِاللَّهِ وَالْيَوْمِ الْآَخِرِ ذَلِكَ خَيْرٌ وَأَحْسَنُ تَأْوِيلاً﴾ (النساء- ۵۹(

O believers obey Allah and the Apostle and those charged with authority among you. Should you disagree about anything refer it to Allah and Apostle, if you truly believe in Allah and the last Day. This will (in the end) be better and more just. (Surah 4, Verse 59)

It is possible that disputes reach a point that wars will break out because of the bias, ignorance and foreign interventions. In this situation, the responsibility of mutual reconciliation rests with the beneficent believers, religious scholars and intellectuals.

{إِنَّمَا الْمُؤْمِنُونَ إِخْوَةٌ فَأَصْلِحُوا بَيْنَ أَخَوَيْكُمْ ۚ وَاتَّقُوا اللَّهَ لَعَلَّكُمْ تُرْحَمُونَ } (الحجرات- ۱۰(

The believers are brethren. Make peace among your brethren and fear Allah, so that you may be shown mercy. (Surah 49, Verse 10)

There are some habits prohibited in Islam which usher in irrational and unconstructive differences.

1. Pride: it includes self-pride, not accepting the truth, considering one's own views or actions as completely accurate and looking down upon other people.

2. Exaltness: considering one's own practices and actions better than anyone and everyone else.

3. Power-mongering and egoism: considering others right performances as wrong for one's own dominion or signing of treaties with foreigners.

4. Suspicion: suspecting every Muslim's action and leveling false accusation.

5. Hatred: Nurturing hostilities in heart for others and so on……………

These are the roots of tragedies and disasters.

All believers are brothers. We are all one community and we all have the same rights. A conduct of humility among brothers is the way of life of the Prophets (Peace be upon all of them)

وَاخْفِضْ جَنَاحَكَ لِلْمُؤْمِنِينَ} (الحجر- ۸۸)

And lower your wing (in tenderness) for the believers. (Surah 15, Verse 88)

We should not use weapons and force against our brothers except in dire need. We should not ask for foreign troops because of our internal disputes or give them authority to make decisions on behalf of us. It is needed that we solve our disputes through understanding and on the basis of this verse of the Holy Quran {رُحَمَاءُ بَيْنَهُمْ} (merciful to one another), we have to show tolerance, patience and flexibility to our brothers.
