I came across this video today and thought of sharing it with you guys. I found it very informative and it caused a huge variation in my spirits.
After watching this video, I was thinking that---the notion"bacchey do he achhey" is not good. :D And apart from it, I was thinking that if we Muslims are going to be in majority in the next 3 or 4 decades to come then why don't we become a proper Muslim? The one desired by Allah. Why don't we fulfill his commands and live our life according to Hazrat Mohammad P.B.U.H.'s vision of a Muslim.
Our present condition is truly and absolutely pathetic. We are being oppressed, disgraced and governed by despots. All around the world, we Muslims are a victim of foreign invasion. We are being excriminated and deprived from our rights. Our religion which is no doubt a religion of peace is considered extremism and those who follow it strictly as one should, are called terrorists and all this is our fault. We left the right path so whatever is happening is a counter-action.
If we'll be a majority by 2050, and we are still in this present pathetic condition, then what good will it do to us? I mean quantity doesn't matter especially in Islam. Quality has always been Allah's demand.
Remember the contrast in Ghazwa-e-Badr of 313 and 1000? It was the quality of their "Imaan" that won them success in that war. And how about the Battle of Qadsia and the take-over of Roman Empire by the Muslims? That also didn't depend upon quantity. If it would have, then we would never have won that impossible war. Again it was the quality of "Imaan", the spirit of "do or die" in the name of Allah that enabled them to conquer the huge Persian and Roman Empires.
Today, again we are called to perform the divine duty assigned to us for being who we are and to stand for Allah. I know the enemy is at large, it has better equipment and elements are in their favor, but do we care? According to Iqbal a Muslim is:
jis se jiger lala mein thandak ho wo shabnam
daryaun k dil jis se dehel jaen wo toofaan
Allah will help us we just need to have faith. In Surah Nasr He says,
"When comes the Help of God, and Victory, And thou dost see the people enter God's Religion in crowds, Celebrate the praises of thy Lord, and pray for His Forgiveness: For He is Oft-Returning (in Grace and Mercy)."
Now that we know that we have Allah's help if we help ourselves, let's get ready to rule the world again. Lets get prepared for the time to come. Lets become better Muslims. :)
