Editorial - The Time has Come

O people of knowledge, O people of truth! Is the present time not the one about which the True Prophet (sallallahu `alaihe wasallam) had predicted: "At that time, there would be a lot mischief. A person would be Muslim in the morning and kafir (unbeliever) in the evening."
This Hadith does not mean that a person would be Muslim in the morning, and his face would be inscribed with "Kafir" in the morning, ... or that he would be in the town of Muslims in the morning and would be in the town of Jews in the evening, ... or that he would be running in the streets, crying, ‘I have become a Jew." Rather, this Hadith means that there would be no steadiness in emaan. At one moment, he would be Muslim and at the other, Kafir. Actions of Muslims in the morning and actions of Kuffar in the evening!
Yes the time, about which the Holy Prophet (sallallahu `alaihe wasallam) had said: {"It would so happen that the nations of the world would gather to fight against you (Muslims), and would invite one another (to attack you) just as the hungry invite one other to dinning." A man asked, "Shall we (Muslims) be in very small number and the Kuffar in great number at that time?" The Prophet replied: "No, the Muslims would be in a great number at that time. But they would be like garbage flowing in the direction of the river current. The Kuffar would cease to fear you (Muslims). And your hearts would develop ‘Wahan'". Someone asked, "What is Wahan" the Prophet said: "Love of the world and hatred for death."
The reality described in this Hadith is evident today. One nation is calling the other to kill the Muslims same as the hungry vultures cry to call one another on seeing a dead body. The population of Muslims is over one and a quarter billion, but they are mad in love of the world and hate the death of honour.
Another Hadith says: "As long as the best amongst you are your chieftains; the rich are generous and your matters are decided with consultation, the surface of earth is better for you than the underside of earth. But when it so happens that your chieftains are the worst people are your chieftains, the rich become miser and your government is led by women, then the underside of earth is better for you than its surface."
This Hadith means that at the time you cease to have honour and dignity, death would be better than it is better for you to die than to live. Today, our eyes are witnessing that life is a comfort for the earthworms, and a joy for the jungle beasts, but for the one billion Muslims, there is no piece or pleasure on the face of earth. Every day the sun heralds a new tragedy, a new indignity and a new loss.
The words of the Hadith "your governments would be led by women" do not mean that women would become rulers. Rather, the Hadith points to the private life of the lustful rulers. Without a doubt, today, the debauched rulers are following instructions of their bedroom women, and the affairs of government are virtually run by the liberal-minded women.
The True Prophet said that there would be a time when the Muslims would adopt all the practices of the Jews and Christians. The Muslims are following the misleading steps of the Jews and Christians. Worldliness and lustfulness has found its way among the Muslims. All the sinful acts of the Jews and Christians are now prevalent among the Muslims. The beginning of Islam had been marked by the hardships of Hijrah (Migration) which proved to be the harbinger of Islam's rise. The same situation prevails today, as the followers of truth, who are very few in number, are facing a lot of hardships. Being subjugated and having no shelter anywhere, they are forced to migrate It seems as if the Kuffar have conquered the whole world. The Muslims who rose to fight them are as few as they are aliens. On the whole, have diverted from the right path and have thus indulged in bad practices besides becoming coward and indifferent. There are only a few Muslims who have refused to give up.
This reminds us of the preliminary time of Islam when the true faithful were very few in number and were surrounded by the enemies of Islam from all four sides. They were helpless in Makkah and so in Habshah. While on of them was screaming under the heavy rock, the other was forced to lie on the burning coals. Their legs were tied with rope and then they were dragged mercilessly on the ground. The Mushriks (polytheists) would whip their backs and laugh at them. The faithful had no haven on earth.
Today, there are only a few faithful, who have sold their lives to Allah because Jannah (Paradise) would be theirs. They have vowed to please their Lord and not the Satan. Their story of faith are scattered from Tora Bora to Cuba. The land of world had been narrowed down upon them. Every method of torture is being tested upon them.
They are great people. They have adopted the way of resolve and sacrifice and not the way of escape and cowardice. They have been chosen by Allah to establish the Haq, the truth. No power on earth can make them swerve from their determination. They are the ones who prefer the death of honour to the life of disgrace. They followed the path of Imam Abu Hanifa, the path of Imam Shafai, the path of Imam Ahmad bin Hambal, the path of Mujadid Alf Sani, the path of Shed Ahmad Shaheed and Shah Ismail Shaheed. This path is full of difficulties but those who follow this path would never be unsuccessful.
O people of knowledge, O people of truth! May our lives be sacrificed on the True Prophet (sallallahu `alaihe wasallam). We are witnessing his prediction coming true today. The Muslims in the morning become Kafir in the evening. The vultures from all over the world have flocked in our land, our space and our seas to claw our dead bodies, which are filled with "Wahan". The worst among us have become our leaders and rulers. The Muslims have adopted the culture and civilization of the Jews and Christians. And the true faithful are as few as aliens. ..... Yes the time has come. We have to decide now whether we should take the path of hypocrisy or the path of resolve and steadfastness. We must remember that those who follow the path of resolve and steadfastness are never dead and never unsuccessful. It is time we joined the people of resolve.
