“If Allah aids you, none can ever vanquish you, and if He abandons you, then who is there to aid you thereafter? And, the Mu’minoon should have tawakkul (trust) on only Allah.” (Qur’aan) “There is no aid except from Allah, The Mighty, The Wise.” (Qur’aan)
The Ummah is vastly weaker and more degraded than it was in 1947 when Israel was carved out from Palestine and handed to the Jews and when the Hindus took control of Kashmir. Despite the continuous fighting and hostility of almost 8 decades, Muslims of these lands have attained no successes leave alone victory over the kuffaar. On the contrary, greater suffering and humiliation have been imposed on them. All the so-called Muslim governments in all the Lands of Islam, have in entirety deserted the suffering millions of Palestine, Kashmir, Arakan, Syria, etc. In fact, most of these so-called Muslim countries are in support of Israel. Some such as the Saudi Darul Kufr and others are actively aiding the Israelis in their objective of exterminating the Palestinians. The prolonged horrendous suffering and humiliation of Muslims at the hands of the Yahood, Nasaara, the Mushrikeen of India and China is conspicuous evidence of Divine Abandonment. That is, Allah Ta’ala has abandoned this Ummah. In other words, Allah Ta’ala is inflicting His punishment on us for our treachery, disobedience and rebellion against Him. The vast majority of this Ummah has become kuffaar, not only in practice, but also in belief. Even its ulama have become the scum of people. The Deen has long ago been discarded and is currently being trampled on by even those who are supposed to be its vanguards and the guides of the Ummah, viz., the ulama. The munaafiq rulers and kuffaar governments in political domination in all the lands of Islam are merely the reflection of the evil, villainy and kufr of the Muslim populations in these countries. Allah Ta’ala imposes and afflicts a nation with rulers which are reflections of their deeds and misdeeds. Thus, it is stupid to point the finger of blame for the degradation and misery of the Ummah at the munaafiq and kuffaar rulers and governments. The rot is in the entire Ummah at ground level. The moral and spiritual conditions of the entire Ummah in general is absolutely rotten and beyond the limits of lament. Fisq, fujoor, bid’ah, nifaaq and kufr are the primary attributes of those who profess to be Muslims, and the worst of them are their molvis and sheikhs. While this is the prevalent state of affairs in all Muslim countries, it is worse in Palestine, Kashmir, Syria, Arakan, China and now India must be added to the list. The moral rot and spiritual bankruptcy of these segments of the Ummah are justifying the horrendous Punishment which is engulfing them. Muslim communities elsewhere are not heeding and not deriving any lesson from the conflagrations of horror which have overwhelmed Muslims in these few countries. This attitude of indifference is the sign for more Muslim communities upon whom will fall the axe of Allah’s Athaab. The misery which has engulfed the Palestinians currently is not an accident. It is not a haphazard development. It is not the power of the Yahood and Nasaara. It is by the decree of Allah Azza Wa Jal. The Qur’aan Majeed states:
“Not a leaf drops (from a tree) but He is aware. There is not a seed in the darkness of the earth nor anything moist or dry, but it is recorded in a Clear Book (Looh-e-Mahfooz).” “Nothing is hidden from your Rabb, be it the finest particle in the earth or in the heaven, nor something smaller or bigger, but it is recorded in a Clear Book.” Then Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said that if the entire mankind unites to cause harm to you, they will succeed only to the degree that Allah Ta’ala has ordained for you. People of valid Imaan will now understand that whatever is currently happening in Palestine, Syria and elsewhere is by Allah’s command and everything is on course and Allah Azza Wa Jal is in full control and command.

The obligation of Muslims is to repent and morally reform themselves. This moral reformation is structured on total obedience to the Shariah and adoption of the Sunnah in all spheres of life. Minus these fundamental requisites there is absolutely no hope for the redemption of Muslims and for casting off the shackles of the kuffaar. Muslims have enshackled themselves with the culture and lifestyle of the kuffaar. Muslims have made the Yahood and Nasaara their leaders, hence Allah Ta’ala has made them our rulers to oppress and brutalize us. That is Allah’s Athaab, and for the Ways of Allah there is no change. The Qur’aan Majeed says:
“Never will you find a change for the Sunnah of Allah.”


At least 22 people were killed when lightning struck a market in Azad Kashmir on Monday, local media and officials reported. The deceased included nine members of Tableegi Jamaat, who were staying at a nearby local mosque, and two army troops, local broadcaster Aaj News reported, quoting offi-cials of Azad Kashmir Disaster Management Authority. The incident took place in Leswa town of Neelam Valley — a famous tourist desti-nation — near Line of Control, a de facto bor-der that divides disput-ed Kashmir valley be-tween Pakistan and In-dia. The Leswa Market was completely de-stroyed by lightning, of-ficials said.
Several vehicles of tour-ists were also missing due to torrential rains that caused flash floods in the region, they add-ed. Pakistan‟s army troops have joined local administration in the rescue operation.
Allah Ta‟ala says in His Glorious Qur‟aan:
“The Thunder recites His Tasbeeh with His Hamd (Praises), and (so do the Malaaikah) out of Fear. He (Allah) des-patches the Lightning, and it then strikes whom-ever He wills. (Whilst this Punishment of Allah occurs), they (the mis-guided people) dispute regarding Allah (His Shariah). (Know!) That He is Most Stern in Pun-ishment.”
Ra‟d, i.e. the thunder or the Angel Ra‟d who drives along the rain clouds and all the Ma-laaikah quiver with Fear for Allah Ta‟ala. Therefore, they recite His Praises. But insolent people, in their immoral holiday resorts, and in their daily lives reckless-ly and flagrantly deny Allah‟s Shariah. While some brazenly reject the Shariah, other deviates misinterpret the ahkaam to suit the narratives of their carnal lusts.
Undoubtedly, the epi-sode in Kashmir is Al-lah‟s Athaab. May Allah Ta‟ala save us from His Wrath.
