People and Nation Needs to change not the Leader:
That is because Allah never changeth the grace He hath bestowed on any people until they first change that which is in their hearts, and (that is) because Allah is Hearer, Knower. (Al_Quraan_008.053)
(Allah will change the nation if their people first change themselves NOT their Leader)
If People and Nation change, not the Leader THEN:
And if the people of the township had believed and kept from evil, surely We should have opened for them, blessings from the sky and from the earth. But (unto every messenger) they gave the lie, and so We seized them on account of what they used to earn. (Al_Quraan_007.096)
(Allah’s Blessing may have come if nation or people have accepted Islaam and NOT their Leader)
Quraan is the ONLY Book of Guidance which can Help us to Answer Back all Kinds of False Ideas:
This Book, there is NO Doubt in it, is a Guidance to those who fear Allah. (Al_Quraan_002.002)
He it is who sends clear revelations to His slave, that He may bring you out of darkness into light; for Allah is surely gracious and kind to you. (Al_Quraan_057.009)
A Book (Quraan) revealed unto thee, so let thy heart be oppressed no more by any difficulty on that account, that with it (the Quraan) thou mightest warn (the erring) and teach the Believers. (Al_Quraan_007.002)
We know best what they say, and you are not one to compel them; therefore REMIND him by means of the Quraan who fears My threat. (Al_Quraan_050.045)
Invite (all) to the Way of thy Lord with wisdom and beautiful preaching; and argue with them in ways that are best and most gracious: for thy Lord knoweth best, who have strayed from His Path, and who receive guidance. (Al_Quraan_016.125)
Baaith / Oath / Promises: Fulfill your Promises with Allah and Enter into Islaam Completely:
And when We made a covenant with you and raised the mountain over you: Take hold of what We have given you with firmness and be obedient. They said: We hear and disobey. And they were made to imbibe (the love of) the calf into their hearts on account of their unbelief Say: Evil is that which your belief bids you if you are believers. (Al_Quraan_002.093)
O Prophet! when believing women come to you giving you a pledge that they will not associate aught with Allah, and will not steal, and will not commit fornication, and will not kill their children, and will not bring a calumny which they have forged of themselves, and will not disobey you in what is good, accept their pledge, and ask forgiveness for them from Allah; surely Allah is Forgiving, Merciful. (Al_Quraan_060.012)
Enter into Islam whole-heartedly, and follow not the footsteps of the evil one. (Al_Quraan_002.208)
Why Nations Destroy?
Allah Never Destroys any Good Nations:
why were there not among the generations before you those possessing
understanding, who should have forbidden the making of mischief in the
earth, except a few of those whom We delivered from among them? And
those who were unjust went after what they are made to enjoy of plenty,
and they were guilty. Your
Lord never annihilates any community unjustly, while its people are
Allah Never Changes the Conditions of a Nation till their People (NOT their Leader) Changes themselves:
the manner of the people of Pharaoh and those before them; they
disbelieved in Allah's communications, therefore Allah destroyed them
on account of their faults; surely Allah is strong, severe in requiting
(evil). This is because Allah
has never changed a favor which He has conferred upon a people until
they change their own condition; and because
Allah is Hearing, Knowing. (Al_Quraan_008.052-053)
Corruption in the Land is because of Peoples Deeds:
Corruption has appeared in the land and the sea on account of what the hands of men have wrought (done), that He may make them taste a part of that which they have done, so that they may return. (Al_Quraan_030.041)
Even if a Quraan caused mountains to move, or the earth to tear asunder, or the dead to speak (they will not believe). Allah controls all things. Is it not time for the believers to give up and realize that if Allah willed, He could have guided all the people? The disbelievers will continue to suffer disasters, as a consequence of their own works, or have disasters strike close to them, until Allah's promise is fulfilled. Allah will never change the predetermined destiny. (Al_Quraan_013.031)
Miserable Life of Disbelievers:
And whoever turns away from My reminder (message), he will have a miserable life, and We will raise him on the Day of Resurrection, blind. (Al_Quraan_020.124)
Disbelievers are Loosing their Lands:
Nay, We gave the good things of this life to these men and their fathers until the period grew long for them; Do they not then see that We gradually reduce the land (in their control) from its outlying borders? Is it then they who will win? (Al_Quraan_021.044)
Destruction of Disbeliever's Land:
And when We wish to destroy a town, We send Our commandment to the people of it who lead easy lives, but they transgress therein; thus the word proves true against it, so We destroy it with utter destruction. And how many of the generations did We destroy after Nuh! and your Lord is sufficient as Knowing and Seeing with regard to His servants' faults. (Al_Quraan_017.016-017)
Why Muslims and Muslims countries are getting more affected, while Allah promised to protect the believers? We need to find out immediately, what was the sins of those Muslims who were affected by such disasters, so that we can avoid those sins.
the people of the towns had believed
and guarded (against evil) we would certainly have opened up for them
blessings from the heaven and the earth, but
they rejected, so we overtook them for what they had earned. (Al_Quraan_007.096)
Indonesia got affected by Tsunami triggered by an under sea Earthquake on 26-DEC-2004. Bangladesh got affected by massive flood and over 2/3 of Bangladesh gone under water. History of Earthquake in Iran and Turkey is not too old as well. It looks like we are Muslims by name only. We have the Quraan and we believe on the Quraan that it is from Allah and free from any kind of error or contradiction BUT when the time comes to practice it, we try to deviate from it and start looking shortcuts. Enter into Islaam Completely and immediately without any delay.
Disasters are not without any reason:
Mischief (Disaster or Corruption) has appeared on land and sea because of (the evil) that the hands of men have earned, that (Allah) may give them a taste of some of their deeds: in order that they may turn back (from Evil) [Al_Quraan_030:041]
As for those who disbelieve, disaster ceaseth not to strike them because of what they do, or it dwelleth near their home until the threat of Allah come to pass. [Al_Quraan_013.031]
In the above two Ayaat Disaster points to both the Natural Disasters as well as Man Mad, including a Cruel Ruler.
Do we think that Allah will change our conditions, since we just recite Kalima and obey his few commands. It is our mistake. Allah never changes the condition of people unless they change themselves. Our Ummah has to change immediately, so don't delay, time is running out. Do you think that Cruel Ruler is not a Disaster, Think again.
Remember: After Listening or watching or reading etc. of Quraan and Authentic Hadeeth, it is your responsibility to think and decide as well as change accordingly and immediately. Yes, Rasool Allah already warned that there will be around 73 sects of Muslims BUT only one will go to the Heaven, doesn't mean that in any sects I am fine. I must need to find out the right one and change accordingly and immediately, only then there is a real hope to enter to the heaven. Tomorrow may never come so don't delay and Enter into Islaam immediately. Also telling others as well is your responsibility.
Possible Reason Why Muslim Ummah is suffering Badly:
Yet you it is who slay your people and turn a party from among you out of their homes, backing each other up against them unlawfully and exceeding the limits; and if they should come to you, as captives you would ransom them-- while their very turning out was unlawful for you. Do you then believe in a part of the Book and disbelieve in the other? What then is the re ward of such among you as do this but disgrace in the life of this world, and on the day of resurrection they shall be sent back to the most grievous chastisement, and Allah is not at all heedless of what you do. These are they who buy the life of this world for the hereafter, so their chastisement shall not be lightened nor shall they be helped. (Al_Quraan_002.085-086)
(Here Believing means Practicing. Islaam is a Practical Religion and NOT a Verbal Religion. Today vast majority of Muslim Ummah are not Practicing Islaam completely, so it means, they are believing in some parts of the Quraan, while disbelieving in the others.)
Allah has promised for the great bounty, BUT why Muslim Ummah are suffering:
And if the people of the towns had believed and guarded (against evil) we would certainly have opened up for them blessings from the heaven and the earth, but they rejected, so we overtook them for what they had earned. (Al_Quraan_007.096)
Do not hold the Messenger's calling (you) among you to be like your calling one to the other; Allah indeed knows those who steal away from among you, concealing themselves; therefore let those beware who go against his order lest a trial afflict them or there befall them a painful chastisement. (Al_Quraan_024.063)
Behold! You are those who are called upon to spend in Allah's way, but among you are those who are niggardly, and whoever is niggardly is niggardly against his own soul; and Allah is Self-sufficient and you have need (of Him), and if you turn back He will bring in your place another people, then they will not be like you. (Al_Quraan_047.038)
Shall I then seek a judge other than Allah? And He it is Who has revealed to you the Book (which is) made plain; and those whom We have given the Book know that it is revealed by your Lord with truth, therefore you should not be of the disputers. (Al_Quraan_006.114)
Those who don’t do Justice according to the Laws of Allah they are unbelievers:
Surely We revealed the Taurat in which was guidance and light; with it the prophets who submitted themselves (to Allah) judged (matters) for those who were Jews, and the masters of Divine knowledge and the doctors, because they were required to guard (part) of the Book of Allah, and they were witnesses thereof; therefore fear not the people and fear Me, and do not take a small price for My communications; and whoever did not judge by what Allah revealed, those are they that are the unbelievers. (Al_Quraan_005.044)
What about those Muslim Rulers, who don’t implement the True Islamic Laws, how come they are Muslim? What about those who appoint them by giving vote in a democratic system, although there are others asking their support, so that they may be able to implement the True Islaamic System (Khilafa)? What about those who don’t go for vote where there is a democratic system, to elect someone who is promising to implement the True Islaamic System? As an example, suppose 3% who wants Islaamic System, but didn’t vote, 49% vote to Non-Islaamic party while 47% vote to Islaamic Party. Then Non-Islaamic Party will be in the power only because of 3% people. Why there are so many divided Islaamic Parties? Suppose that the majority of the people don’t want Islaamic System then, would you like to force the people or do Dawah and leave the rest on Allah? A Muslim can never vote to a Non-Islaamic party, while there are Islaamic Parties available. These things are extremely important and need TRUE Justice otherwise the corrupt Rulers will be appointed and will destroy the Nation. You must need to help those who are sincerely & peacefully trying to build the Khilafa (United States of Islaam).
Those who vote for NON-Islaamic Party May be actually Disbelievers:
O ye who believe! Whoso of you becomes a renegade from his religion, (know that in his stead) Allah will bring a people whom He loves and who love Him, humble toward believers, stern toward disbelievers, striving in the way of Allah and fearing not the blame of any blamer. Such is the grace of Allah, which He gives unto whom He will. Allah is All Embracing, All Knowing. [Al_Quraan_005.054]
Remember: There is no Compulsion in the Religion… (Al_Quraan_002.256)
Those who Divide the Religion are NO Longer Muslims:
As for those who Divide their Religion and break up into Sects, thou hast NO part in them in the least: their affair is with Allah. He will in the end tell them the truth of all that they did." [Holy Quraan 6: 159]
Allah wants us to be United Perfectly:
If you DIFFER in anything (Faith, Salaat, Sayaam, Zakaat, etc.) amongst yourself, then REFER to Allah and his Messenger, if you really believe in Allah and in the Last Day. That is better and more suitable for determinations. [Al_Quraan_004.059]
Weather you believe or not, our Foundation (Worshipping Method) is widely divided into several sects. Not only every group, believing on, that they are right, BUT every person practically believe that he is right, and perfect, so he is acting accordingly.
Check your Faith, Kalimah, Salaat, Sayaam, Zakaat, Hajj, etc (Every Act including Worship). Think again, why you are different from other Muslims. First see yourself, may be you are not Correct.
Only No Innovations, No Additions or Subtractions in our Faith, Kalimah, Salaat, Sayaam, Zakaat, Hajj, etc. will bring us to Perfect Unity.
Allah Protects ONLY Those who keep doing Dawah and those who help them in doing Dawah:
At many places Allah mentioned that HE protects ONLY those who keeps doing Dawah and those who helps them as well (Ref: specially read Al_Quraan chapter_007). So don't fear Shaitaan and Fear Allah only and keep doing Dawah from the depth of your heart.
When some of them said: "Why do you preach to a people whom Allah will destroy or visit with a terrible punishment?"- said the preachers:" To discharge our duty to your Lord, and perchance they may fear Him." (Al_Quraan_007:164)
When they neglected the warnings that had been given them, We rescued (ONLY) those who forbade Evil; but We overtook the wrong-doers with a grievous punishment because they were given to transgression. (Al_Quraan_007:165)
Here points to be noted, what happened to those who were not doing Dawah nor helping those who were doing Dawah, instead they were asking those who were doing Dawah that "Why do you preach to a people whom Allah will destroy or visit with a terrible punishment?". They were not saved while those who were doing Dawah were saved only.
Allah Never Destroys any Good Nations:
But why were there not among the generations before you those possessing understanding, who should have forbidden the making of mischief in the earth, except a few of those whom We delivered from among them? And those who were unjust went after what they are made to enjoy of plenty, and they were guilty. Your Lord never annihilates any community unjustly, while its people are righteous. (Al_Quraan_011.116-117)
Allah Never Changes the Conditions of a Nation till their People (NOT their Leader) Changes themselves:
In the manner of the people of Pharaoh and those before them; they disbelieved in Allah's communications, therefore Allah destroyed them on account of their faults; surely Allah is strong, severe in requiting (evil). This is because Allah has never changed a favor which He has conferred upon a people until they change their own condition; and because Allah is Hearing, Knowing. (Al_Quraan_008.052-053)
Change yourself NOW Before it gets Too LATE: New Muslims are Much Better than Non-Practiced Muslims:
Verily Allah will never change the condition of a people until they (first) change it themselves. [Al_Quraan_013.011]
And if you turn away, Allah will exchange you for some another people (New Muslims), and they will not be like you. [Al_Quraan_047.038]
Islaam will eventually come to all over the World:
Their intention is to extinguish the Allah’s light (by blowing) with their mouths, but Allah will complete His light, even though the Unbelievers may detest (it). [Al_Quraan_061.008]
Enter into Islaam Completely (Perfectly, 100%). (Al_Quraan_002.208)
