Why are we Muslims in such a pathetic state all over the world?
Who is to be blamed for the pathetic conditions the Muslims are living in today? The way Muslims are being targeted, looked down upon, hated and assaulted? Is it because they are Muslims …..following the Truth? following the Quran and Sunnah? Are these difficult times a test from Allah to test their faith? or is it because they are far away from the truth.. far from the spirit and soul of Islam.. far from the teaching of Islam?
I saw a Video by Harun Yahya on “The Signs of the Last day”
As Harun Yahya states in his book :
“The following are the signs reveled by the Prophet (saas) 14 centuries ago, and which are coming true in the age in which we live:
According to the Qur’an, on the Last Day the Prophet (saas) will say that his own people will have abandoned the Qur’an: “My Lord, my people treat this Qur’an as something to be ignored…” (Surat al-Furqan: 30)
It is also revealed in the hadiths that, during the End Times, the Qur’an’s guidance will be disregarded and people will stray from it.
Near the establishment of the Hour there will be days during which (religious) knowledge will be taken away (vanish) and general ignorance will spread…(Bukhari)
There will come a time for my people when there will remain nothing of the Qur’an except its outward form and nothing of Islam except its name and they will call themselves by this name even though they are the people furthest from it.(Ibn Babuya, Thawab ul-A’mal) “
Thus the muslims are alone to be blamed for the problems we are facing and the conditions we are in.
We muslims of this time are ignorant and mis-informed. How can we expect to be saved and go to heaven..live a good peaceful life in this world.. when apart from Namaz(prayer) and Roza(fast) we dont have any clue about what Islam really is!!?? And even in that how many of us do actually pray 5 times a day and fast during ramazan with true spirit and understanding?
