“Upon Us is the obligation of providing Nusrat (Help) to the Mu‟mineen.”
(Ar-Room, Aayat 47)
Nusrat (Divine Aid –Allah‟s Help) for the Mu‟mineen is Allah‟s Promise and Obligation.
This Aayat as well as other Verses and Ahaadith emphatically declare that to provide Help for the Mu‟mineen is Allah‟s responsibility.
But a panoramic view of the condition of the Ummah worldwide confirms that no such Help is forthcoming. Allah Azza Wa Jal is not providing the Nusrat stated in the Qur‟aan.
How is this „conflict‟ to be reconciled?
In reality there is no contradiction and no need for any interpretation to eliminate the imagined conflict. The Aayat has to be viewed in conjunction with other Aayaat and Ahaadith to understand its purport. The Help which Allah Ta‟ala promised for the Mu‟mineen is for genuine Muslims –true Mu‟mineen. They are those who subscribe fully to the Aqaaid (Beliefs) and who adopt the Sunnah of Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) and the Sahaabah.
They are those who tread resolutely along the Path of the Sunnah and the Shariah as shown to us by the Fuqaha and Auliya of the Salafus Saaliheen era on whose integrity, authority and authenticity Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) himself placed the Seal. Thus, Nabi-e-Kareem (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said: “The noblest of ages is my age, then those after (my age), then those after them (after the Sahaabah), then those after them……. Thereafter will be people who love obesity.”
“Honour (and obey)my Sahaabah, for verily they are the noblest of you; then those after them, then those after them. Thereafter will prevail falsehood.”
Minus the Salafus Saaliheen there is no Is-lam. The „Ummah‟ to-day has absolutely no resemblance and no affinity with the Islam ex-pounded in the Qur‟aan and Sunnah. „Muslims‟ are „Muslim‟ merely in name, not in reality. The beliefs and practices – the entire life of those of whom the Ummah com-prises, are corrupt, and consist of a compound of zandaqah, fisq, fujoor, bid‟ah and clear-cut kufr. How is it ever pos-sible for Allah‟s Nusrat to settle on this villain-ous „Flotsam‟? The Um-mah today is the RUB-BISH predicted by our Nabi (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam).
Once Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) mentioned to the Sahaabah that a time will dawn when the kuffaar nations will form coalitions to de-vour the Muslims. A Sahaabi asked in surprise: “O Rasulullah! Will that be because of our small number on that day?” Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said: “In fact, you will be in-numerable, but you will be ghutha (rubbish) like the flotsam of floodwaters. Allah will eliminate fear for you from the hearts of your enemy, and He will cast wahn in you.” The Sahaabi asked: “What is wahn, O Rasulullah!”. Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said: “Love of the world and aversion for Maut.”
The gross rebellion of the Ummah against Allah Ta‟ala has blocked the promised Nusrat of Allah Ta‟ala. The Divine Aid is meant for only obedient Slaves of Allah Ta‟ala, not for the flotsam which constitutes the Ummah today. Anyone who denies this reality, loses his Imaan because the Qur‟aan Majeed explicitly and emphatically states that the provision of Help for the Mu‟mineen is Allah‟s obligation. It is therefore necessary to understand that the Ummah today is not the Mu‟mineen who qualify for Divine Aid.
As long as Muslims do not change their condition, morally and spiritually – as long as they do not revert to Islam, they will continue sinking in the filth of degradation licking the boots of the Yahood and Nasaara.
“Then Allah apprehended them because of their sins. Verily, Allah is powerful and severe in punishment. That (infliction of punishment) is so because Allah does not change (eliminate) the bounty which He has bestowed to a people. (Only when they themselves) change what is within themselves (does Allah inflict His punishment.) Verily Allah is the One Who Hears, Who is aware.” (Al-Anfaal,52 , 53)
“Verily, Allah does not change the condition of a nation as long as they do not change what is with-in them. When Allah wills punishment for a people, nothing can then ward it off.” (Ar-Ra‟d, Aayat 11)
The former pedestal of glory of the Ummah has been removed by Allah Ta‟ala. The villainy of Muslims does not entitle them for Allah‟s Aid, hence wherever Mus-lims are suffering under kuffaar domination and oppression they are tast-ing the effects of their evil. But it appears that there is no hope for the redemption of this fall-en Ummah. Only Imaam Mahdi (Alayhis salaam) will now be the solution.)
