..................The Creator of the universe, Allah (SWT) remains clearly committed that kingdom and His Khilafah7 on earth are only meant for the true Muslims, (Mumineen i.e. those of perfect Imaan).
Allah pak says :
Allah (SWT) has promised to those from amongst you who believe and do righteous deeds that He would surely make them His Caliph on earth [Surah Al-Noor:55]
And do not give way to despair, and do not grieve and you only shall dominate, if you are true believers
And honour is only for Allah, His Sayyidina Rasul-ullah (Sallallahu „alayhi wa sallam) and those who
believe [Surah Al-Munafiqoon:08].
The above Divine declarations clearly show that the way to regain honour, greatness, superiority, fame and virtue for Muslims lies only in their having a strong faith. If their relationship with Allah (SWT) and with Sayyidina Rasul-ullah (Sallallahu „alayhi wa sallam) is strong and firm, they are bound to be masters of each and every thing on this earth. But if, on the other hand, it becomes weak or it gets broken, disaster and decline are bound to follow.
Allah pak says :
And let Time be witness: verily man is in a great loss except, of course, those who believe and do
righteous deeds and who enjoin truth and enjoin patience [Surah Al-As‟r:1-3].
........................As already brought out, history proves that the early Muslims had been able to reach the highest peak of
honour and glory, whereas the present day Muslims seem to have moved in the opposite direction.
It is obvious from the above Ayah of the Quran that the first Muslims had attained their high
position in life because of the purity and strength of their faith and the excellence of their character. As
against this, the miserable condition of the present day Muslims is the result of weakness in their faith and
character, the opposite of what their forefathers possessed...................
