The Process of an Islamic Revolution

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, and they will not be like you. [Al_Quraan_047.038]

Repeatedly Relying on the Same Corrupt Person will NOT Change the Fortune of a Country
There is no Compulsion in the Religion… (Al_Quraan_002.256)
Muhammad (Peace-Be-Upon-Him) a Role Model for the whole World. (Ref: Al_Quraan_033.021)

Generally people complain that in the Quraan we don't have clear commandments to appoint a Khalifa, a Head of State. Let us Analyze, in the light of the Quraan. 

Remember: If you don't accept the soft way, then you may have to learn the hard way, and the lesson is in the Quraan, regarding the mountain TOOR (Sinai) on top of the people (Ref. Al_Quraan_002.063) .... Come to peace; an example is in the treaty of Hudaybiyah, which was a little un-favourable to Muslims (Ref. Al_Quraan_008.061).

First we will review a little information from one of the Great Scholars, Dr. Israr Ahmed of Tanzeem-e-Islami about Imaam Mahdi as a Khalifa, a Head of State and Democracy.

As per Dr. Israr Ahmed, Aero planes, telephones and Loud Speakers, which the west have developed, Muslims are taking benefits from. Similarly Democracy could be a tool on which we can apply the Quraanic laws as per new statement from Dr. Israr Ahmed of Tanzeem-e-Islami in one of the debates/questions regarding Khilafat and also on the issue of Lal Masjid, that Democracy is the peaceful way, why don't Mullahs come to this without forcing people to come to Islaam.

Also on the issue of Imaam Mahdi, Dr. Israr Ahmed said in his one of lectures that, Rasool Allah (Peace-Be-Upon-Him) was all in one; i.e. a Head of State, Head of Army, Head of Economics, Head of Politics, Head of Sociology etc. Today, in the information age, which has grown tremendously, looking for a single person who is Master of all (Head of State, Head of Army, Head of Navy, Head of Air Force, Head of Space Technology, Head of Economics, Head of Politics, Head of Sociology etc.) is completely impossible. It might be possible that instead of Imaam Mahdi an Islaamic System could be formed, which will create true peace in the Global World. Professional elections could be a solution to this.

Rasool Allah (Peace-Be-Upon-Him) is a Role Model for the whole World (Ref: Al_Quraan_033.021), and we need to look at how Rasool Allah (Peace-Be-Upon-Him) performed the task of governing Muslims. His devoted companions regularly listened to him with sincerity and followed him. Rasool Allah (Peace-Be-Upon-Him) married to a lady of a different tribe that helped bring people together as well. For details on the life of Rasool Allah (Peace-Be-Upon-Him), please read The Life of The Prophet Muhammad (Peace-Be-Upon-Him).

Remember: Allah will surely test you in any situation, time, or place, and you need to be patient and keep offering prayers. You are not supposed to delay offering prayers until Allah changes the situation. Allah's anger might be because you are not offering prayers or disobeying Allah's other commandments. Don't forget to do the right peaceful action, which could be through the democratic process, to change the situation, without unjustly hurting others. Government properties and public properties are from people's sincere tax money and it needs to be protected by all means. It takes lots of efforts, resources, and time to build properties, but they are easy to destroy. Behave sincerely as peaceful nation to be an example for the rest of the world.

And We will most certainly try you with somewhat of fear and hunger and loss of property and lives and fruits; and give good news to the patient, Who, when a misfortune befalls them, say: Surely we are Allah's and to Him we shall surely return. (Al_Quraan_002:155-156)

Verily Allah will never change the condition of a people until they (FIRST) change it themselves. [Al_Quraan_013.011]

We need to look to our present leader, whom we want to be the ruler of our country or state etc. We need to examine his or her characteristics and REMEMBER: Repeatedly Relying on the Same Corrupted Person will NOT Change the Fortune of a Country. Sometimes, not finding the right person in a big party does not mean there is a right person doesn't exist. The right person might be from a small party. Look at actions of the party; have they really done any productive work for the country, e.g. creating a peaceful environment so that people can work free from terror, building roads and bridges so that people can communicate easily, etc. Effective communication is the key to the success of a nation. Did the current presiding party really benefit the country without putting the tax payer's money into their own pocket? It might be possible that the little group has done tremendous developmental work that the bigger party is jealous of, so the bigger party may try to wipe out the smaller party, so there cannot be an example of good human productivity left behind. People will be lead to believe that all political parties are corrupt, and will think that they must choose the lesser of the evils; however, all political parties are not necessarily counter-beneficial to the country. It is also possible that a leader of a party could be very good but his members might be corrupted, on the other hand the leader of the other party could be corrupt while their members are very good, in that case you should do the true justice by supporting the good persons only regardless of party, leader or members.

If you don't see the good characteristics in your current leader then perhaps you need to look for another leader probably from another group regardless of big or small. Remember, a leader represents your country; you want to have a leader that properly reflects the values of the people. If you still don't find an appropriate leader, perhaps you need to look back to how Rasool Allah (Peace-Be-Upon-Him) started his campaign and follow his example. The first step to all this is education and awareness among the people. True Education is the key, which can help overcome many issues.

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)

But if you find a person who could have a good character and have good knowledge to lead in his or her discipline, you must support him, and this is the way which Quraan points to appoint Khalifa (Ruler) in a categorized way and it is your duty to help them to lead the country or state.

Follow him who does not ask you for reward, and they are the followers of the right course; (Al_Quraan_036.021)

And withhold yourself with those who call on their Lord morning and evening desiring His goodwill, and let not your eyes pass from them (always ready to listen and follow them till they follow the Quraan), desiring the beauties of this world's life; and do not follow him whose heart We have made unmindful to Our remembrance, and he follows his low desires and his case is one in which due bounds are exceeded. (Al_Quraan_018.028)

O you who believe! be careful of (your duty to) Allah and be with the true ones. (Al_Quraan_009.119)

O you who believe! obey Allah and obey the Messenger and those in authority from among you; then if you quarrel about anything, refer it to Allah and the Messenger, if you believe in Allah and the last day; this is better and very good in the end. (Al_Quraan_004.059)

O you who believe! be maintainers of justice, bearers of witness of Allah's sake, though it may be against your own selves or (your) parents or near relatives; if he be rich or poor, Allah is nearer to them both in compassion; therefore do not follow (your) low desires, lest you deviate; and if you swerve or turn aside, then surely Allah is aware of what you do. (Al_Quraan_004.135)

O you who believe! If you help Allah, He will help you and will make your foothold firm. (AlQuraan_047.007)

And withhold yourself with those who call on their Lord morning and evening desiring His goodwill, and let not your eyes pass from them, desiring the beauties of this world's life; and do not follow him whose heart We have made unmindful to Our remembrance, and he follows his low desires and his case is one in which due bounds are exceeded. (Al_Quraan_018.028)

Leader and Leadership: We Must Select our Leader:

And withhold yourself with those who call on their Lord morning and evening desiring His goodwill, and let not your eyes pass from them (always yes sir, till they follow the Quraan), desiring the beauties of this world's life; and do not follow him whose heart We have made unmindful to Our remembrance, and he follows his low desires and his case is one in which due bounds are exceeded. (Al_Quraan_018.028)

Those who, should We establish them in the land, will keep up prayer and pay the poor-rate and enjoin good and forbid evil; and Allah's is the end of affairs. (Al_Quraan_022.041)

O you who believe! obey Allah and obey the Messenger and those in authority (Leader) from among you; then if you quarrel about anything, refer it to Allah and the Messenger, if you believe in Allah and the last day; this is better and very good in the end. (Al_Quraan_004.059)

Allah has promised to those of you who believe and do good that He will most certainly make them rulers in the earth as He made rulers those before them, and that He will most certainly establish for them their religion which He has chosen for them, and that He will most certainly, after their fear, give them security in exchange; they shall serve Me, not associating aught with Me; and whoever is ungrateful after this, these it is who are the transgressors. (Al_Quraan_024.055)

Allah Never Destroys the 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:

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, and they will not be like you. [Al_Quraan_047.038]

Why is the Muslim World facing many crises WHILE the rest of the world is facing less? Shaitaan doesn't need to deviate disbelievers:

One of the reasons could be that Shaitaan doesn't have to struggle hard to put people on the wrong path, since they are already partly in, BUT Shaitaan does need to struggle more in the Muslim World.

Following are the phases of this struggle for the Establishment of Deen: Be an active member for this cause to please Allah only:

Da'wah (Calling people to Islaam and Imaan)
Tanzeem (Organization of those who respond)
Training
Establishing Deen

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]
