MUSLIM DEGENERATION AND ITS ONLY REMEDY
“To those of you who believe and do righteous deeds, Allah promises that He will certainly give dominance to them in this world as He gave to those before you; and the religion that has been chosen for them shall be strengthened for them, and He will thereafter certainly transform their fear into tranquility, provided rhey worship Me and associate none with Me.”
The above verse portrays a forthright promise of kingdom, but through “eiman” (firm faith) and righteous deeds. This was actually fulfilled in the days of the Holy Prophet (sallallaho alaihe wasallam) and remained in effect right through the period on the “Khulfa-e-Rashdin” (the first four Caliphs after the Holy Prophet (sallallaho alaihe wasallam). Practically the whole of Arabia had become an Islamic State in the days of the Holy Prophet (sallallaho alaihe wasallam) himself and the rest of the countries (Muslim countries of today) mostly joined Islam during the period of “Khulfa-e-Rashdin” or immediately after their time. Later on too, the promise continued to be fulfilled in favour of a number of a Muslim Kings and “Khalifas” and it still awaits materialization if someone fulfils the conditions, as is clear from the next verse:
“Surely Allah’s followers shall dominate”
In these few pages, an analysis of the present situation and a practical solution for improving it has been given; in fact the solution is nothing else than the actual Islamic way of life, which belonged to our forefathers and early Muslims.
