Especially in recent years there is a great suffering in Muslim world. We are opening our eyes to every new day with a persecution news from a Muslim country. One day Palastine, one day Syria, one day Iraq, another day Burma, another day East Turkestan...
Muslims are being martyred brutally for years and they are driven out of their countries, children are left parentless and parents are left childless. The mosques and all other places of worship are being destroyed, their prayers are attempted to be prevented, our sisters are being raped. No news is received from those who are being arrested in their homes and taken away for no reason at all. Our dearest Muslim brothers and sisters are being burnt alive, they are brought by mass graves and are executed. They are deprived of water and food and are being subjected to worst kinds of tortures.
Shortly Muslims in Palastine, Burma, Iraq, East Turkestan, Afghanistan, the Crimea, Kirkuk, Moro, Pathani, Syria and more Muslim countries are suffering.
While all these cruelty happens, the only solution is all Muslims to unite and become brothers immediately. This is the urgent need of the Muslim world.
Those who are kafir are the friends and protectors of one another. If you do not act in this way there will be turmoil in the land and great corruption. (Surah Al-Anfal 73)
As Allah stated in the Holy Quran, this riot and corruption won’t disappear from the world as long as Muslims unite. But as Muslims help each other and become friends, this lead to prosperity.
The one who doesn’t make an effort to unite, it means that person grants opression. Granting opression means participating the oppression. Power comes from unity. The power of Muslims will come from the unity by the Will of Allah.
While Allah is stating “Hold fast to the rope of Allah all together, and do not separate...” in Surah Al-Imran verse 103, He tells us an obligation. Allah commands Muslims to be united. Being separated and fragmented – especially in an environment like this is forbidden.
Muslims who believe in the same Allah, Quran and the Prophet Muhammad (SAWW) should be brothers and united but it is exemplary that they conflict each other because of some reasons. The leading reason is the denominational and cultural conflicts.
Whereas according to Islamic morals, for a Muslim, the measure must be the fear of God, in faith, moral perfection, sincerity towards God and piety (taqwa). Differences in the Muslim world must be appreciated as a source of richness and they never can be a source of potential fragmentation, division and dispersal.
Quarrel thoroughly destroys the power of Muslims who needs to unite now. Allah draws attention to this fact in the Quran.
... do not quarrel among yourselves lest you lose heart and your momentum disappear. And be steadfast. Allah is with the steadfast. (Surat Al-Anfal 46)
Muslims should set aside differences between them and unite and be brothers very urgently. Otherwise, neither we can solve our problems nor can we put an end to the prosecution conducted by external forces.
