In Sura Nur, verse 55 as well as in few other places, Allah has promised authority and power in the world to Mo’mens. It is history that for as long as this nation continued Jihad collectively Allah kept His end of the bargain and within a remarkable short span of time, half of the world was brought under their dominion. The other half of the world too would not have been long in coming had not they backtracked on their promise and duty towards Allah and the Messenger of Allah. There is another point that is high lit in this verse – it is regarding us, those who claim to be Mo’mens, Muslims Ummat–e–Mohammadi. If we are indeed who we claim to be, why is authority and power of the land not in our hands? Is it because the Almighty is unable to keep His promise? (Naoozu billah min zalek !). The only other answer is despite all our Namaz, Roja, Hajj, Zakat and thousands of other Ebadahs or acts of worship, no matter how pious we are, we are definitely not Mo’mens, not Muslims and the question of being Ummat–e–Mohammadi does not ever arise. What is the situation of this people in the world that is promised to them as Mo’mens? The situation is most pitiful and humiliating – theirs is worst possible condition in the world today. All other nations, people, whenever and wherever they get the chance insult and humiliate them. Muslims are killed, indiscriminately, their houses and dwelling burnt, their wealth captured. Inhumane torture and violation of their chastity is the lot of the Muslim women. These violence have been carried out by Christian forces in Spain few centuries before –where Muslims were uprooted altogether; no sign of them remaining there today: as well as in the North Africa, Philippines and recently in Bosnia Herzegovina. The level of violence perpetrated by Christian forces in Bosnia has no parallel in history. They systemically raped two hundred thousand Muslim women and imprisoned them for up to eight months to ensure they could not abort their unwanted offspring of the Christian violators. Among the several thousand Mosques in Bosnia, only a handful remained in Sarajevo, all others were destroyed. Hindus in Kashmir and all over India are carrying out similar acts. Buddhists do the same in Myanmar, Arakan, Thailand, Vietnam, Kampuchea and China. Even the smallest nation the Jews are engaged in carrying out exactly the same in West Asia, Palestine. In India alone more in 10,000 Mosques have either been converted into temples, used as offices or destroyed. This was the statistics back in 1985. The Jews despite being the smallest in number have relentlessly been carrying out persecution of Muslims since 1947 till date. As if even this was not insulting, humiliating enough, in Assam – a stone and tree worshipping sect have turned their wrath on Muslims there, killing and plundering them hacking them to death, burning down their houses. How much more punishment, what more grievous penalty? The next step would be complete annihilation like that from Spain where no sign that Muslims ruled there for over 900 years remain.
As punishment for rejecting the Messenger Isa (AS), Allah had cursed the Jewish nation, as result of which they were driven out of their homeland of thousands of years by Christian Romans and scattered all over Europe. However, the curse of Allah followed them wherever they went they were eyed with hatred and distrust everywhere. Time and again, their localities were scooped upon by armed gangs of Christian who killed the men, carried away the women and children and burned their houses. This same thing happened over and over again all over Europe so many times that a new word was coined to denote this–‘ pogrom ’ – meaning organized killing and plunder of a community of people. The fate of the Jewish people after Allah cursed them is exactly matched by the situation of the Muslims today. The only difference is the pogroms on the Jews were limited only within Europe and that on Muslims is spread all over the world. A nation of 1 crore the Jews, is being able to very easily carry out pogrom on a population of 100 crore Muslims. Bearing all the signs of Allah’s curse, His Lanat on their bodies, the present day Muslims remain engrossed in their Namaz, Roza and thousands of other Ebadahs. One only lives in a fool’s paradise to think all this will take one to Jannah or if all Ebadah is acceptable to Him.
