The Saviour Means Of The Ummah.

Bismihi Ta’ala

It is with great pain that we have learnt that muslims in Sri Lanka have been targeted by Buddhists extremists. Masjids have been sacked and burnt. Muslim houses and businesses have been burnt.
And today hundreds of Muslims lost their lives in Ghouta, Syria.

*THE SAVIOUR MEANS OF THIS UMMAH:*


The sadness and concern for our fellow Muslims is the proof of our imaan. Because the beloved prophet SAW said:’’You would notice that the feelings of pity, love and concern between fellow mu-mins is expressed same as if in a single body. If one part of the body is sickly infected, then the whole body becomes restless and feverish.’’(Bukhari)

 

Feeling pain and concern for our fellow muslim brothers and sisters is a sign of Imaan. But important to know that we cannot act but with sunnah of the beloved prophet SAW. And the sunnah instruct us that we have to put forward the benefit of the whole ummah and not one segment only. Note that nowadays our continents are like one village. 
We are requesting the ummah to have recourse over the following :

1.    *Du`as.*

The beloved prophet SAW gave Abu Jandal du`as
:

 

لَوْ كَانَ لَهُ أَحَدٌ
بخاري

‘May he be helped’

 

It is reported in Abu Dawood that the beloved prophet SAW refused to fix the price of the market and stated that he could not be unjust to neither the supplier nor the customer. But he could do one thing in such ‘majboor’ circumstances: Du`as!

 

Reported in Muslim shareef that when Yajooj Majooj would come, no one would be able to fight them. Then Hazrat Isa a.s. and the muslims would take refuse in the mountains. The only way to get rid of Yajooj Majooj would be Du`as!

 

Today also, we cannot defend the present attacks on muslims, but we can make Du`as.

 

Not only Du`as, but du`as accompanied with salaahs of ourselves and our family.

2. *TAHAJJUD*

Reported in Bukhari that when the beloved prophet SAW was informed about difficulties of the ummah, he himself woke for tahajjud and he make his whole family wake up:

 

أَنَّ أُمَّ سَلَمَةَ زَوْجَ النَّبِيِّ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ قَالَتْ اسْتَيْقَظَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ لَيْلَةً فَزِعًا يَقُولُ سُبْحَانَ اللَّهِ مَاذَا أَنْزَلَ اللَّهُ مِنْ الْخَزَائِنِ وَمَاذَا أُنْزِلَ مِنْ الْفِتَنِ مَنْ يُوقِظُ صَوَاحِبَ الْحُجُرَاتِ يُرِيدُ أَزْوَاجَهُ لِكَيْ يُصَلِّينَ رُبَّ كَاسِيَةٍ فِي الدُّنْيَا عَارِيَةٍ فِي الْآخِرَةِ

بخاري

3.    *Effort of Imaan. If we are suffering today, it is because there is weakness in imaan or total conviction on Allah Ta`ala. Allah Ta`ala says: ‘’And it is you the Super power if You are really true believers.’’(3:139)
The effort on imaan is the core power to strengthen the power of our du`as and to deter others from molesting us.*  


4.    *TASBIH YOUNUS A.S.*

Then Read lot of laa ilaaha illaa anta soubhanaka inni kountu minazzalimeen.

 

لَا إِلَهَ إِلَّا أَنْتَ سُبْحَانَكَ إِنِّي كُنْتُ مِنَ الظَّالِمِينَ

 

Allah Ta`ala said that He has saved Hazrat Younus a.s. with these kalimahs and He would save also the muslims with these Kalimahs(21:88)



5. *CURE LUST FOR DUNYA AND INVEST IN AKHIRAH:*

The source of defeat of muslims is when muslims prefer this world against the hereafter. When the prophet was asked about the reason that muslims would be suffering in the hands of non muslims, he replied:

 

حُبُّ الدُّنْيَا وَكَرَاهِيَةُ الْمَوْتِ

ابو داود

‘The love for dunya and unwillingness to die. ’(Abu Dawood)

 

Let`s take out time from our dunya and put aside 40 days yearly to concentrate on actions that would contribute for our well being after death. Meeting our fellow muslim brothers to call them to masjid, to be more obedient. Because Allah Ta`ala would help the ummah when most of the ummah would be obedient. Our mother, hazrat Zainab Bint jahash r.a. asked the prophet SAW:

 

أَنَهْلِكُ وَفِينَا الصَّالِحُونَ قَالَ نَعَمْ إِذَا كَثُرَ الْخَبَثُ
بخاري

‘Would we still perish even if we have pious individuals amongst us? The beloved prophet SAW answered: Yes, if bad actions are of majority.’(Bukhari)

 

Then each one of us is a contributive factor to uplift the ummah or to weaken the ummah. So let`s be obedient and encourage others to be obedient to Allah Ta`ala and be regular with our salaahs to contribute for the well being of the ummah. Stay away from sinful transaction and zina. Insha Allahou Ta`ala our ummah would receive help from Allah Ta`ala.

6. *ISTIGHFAAR FOR US AND OTHERS:*

Know that any sinful act on earth is destructful to our living here. The Qur-aan talks of destruction of the skies and the earth due to some people ascribing a son to Allah Ta`ala. (19:90) But because of the istighfaar of Angels above us, Allah Ta`ala saved the world: ‘’The heavens almost burst apart from their above side, and angels proclaim the purity of their Lord, and pray for forgiveness of those on earth...’’(42:5) So istighfaar of angels save the world from destruction. Likewise the beloved prophet SAW pleaded for forgiveness ( istighfaar) in favour of those kaafirs who injured him in Uhud: ‘’O Allah! Forgive my people.’’(Ibn Hibaan)

قال يوم أحد لما شج وجهه ، قال : « اللهم اغفر لقومي
ابن حبان

So we need to ask forgiveness from Allah for those non muslims who are alive(not those who are dead). And also istighfaar of all muslims alive or dead. Istighfaar of our sins and our family. Istighfaar is the daily cleaning of the house or the yard. Without it, accumulation of sins will havoc the society. The fire of sins of others may affect our neighbourhood and our home also. That is why we need to care about others also and so istighfaar for their sins also. By the ummah doing istighfaar, Allah Ta`ala will improve our conditions:

ُ عَنْ ابْنِ عَبَّاسٍ أَنَّهُ حَدَّثَهُ قَالَ
قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ مَنْ لَزِمَ الِاسْتِغْفَارَ جَعَلَ اللَّهُ لَهُ مِنْ كُلِّ ضِيقٍ مَخْرَجًا وَمِنْ كُلِّ هَمٍّ فَرَجًا وَرَزَقَهُ مِنْ حَيْثُ لَا يَحْتَسِبُ
ابو داود
*Rasouloullah SAW said: ‘’One who steadfast with doing istighfaar, Allah will open his way in every jammed conditions. And will relieve him from every remorse. And also will also feed him with means he did not expect.’’(Abu Dawood)*

7. *Sadaqahs:*
*Rasouloullah saw said: 
*"Save yourself from hell fire, even by giving away a piece of date(in Sadaqah)."Bukhari*
*"Sadaqah cools the anger of Allah and prevent an unpleasant death."(Tirmizi).*
If Sadaqah can save us from the greatest calamity if hell, then surely it can prevent these worldly difficulties.

*Also send money your Sadaqahs and money contributions to these affected areas. If we cannot help them by giving our lives, then at least send our money contributions to help our Muslim brothers and sisters that are in difficulty.*

So cure of lusts for dunya, Duas, Strong imaan, salaahs, tasbeeh Younus a.s. , sadaqahs and istighfaar are amongst the effective means to relieve the ummah.
