    Stunning Facts of the muslim world

    HAS ALLAH NOT GIVEN US THE RESOURCES?
    Recognize how many important resources are within Muslim control.
    To mention just a few...........

    70% of world oil reserves, totaling 550 billion barrels, are in "Muslim countries." (U.S. Geological Survey & Oil and Gas Journal)

    49% of the world's Natural Gas reserves, totaling 2532 trillion cubic feet, are in Muslim majority countries. (Oil and Gas Journal)

    21% of world production of Uranium, totaling 6,421 tons annually, is from "Muslim countries." (The Journal of the Uranium Institute)

    Aren't Our Resources What We Were Colonized For?
    Saudi Arabian Crude Oil and Petroleum products alone generated $43.2 billion in revenue in 1999.

    The Prophet (peace be upon him) said: "People share in three things. The water, the graze, and the fire (includes power resources)." (Abu Dawud)
    This hadith establishes public ownership of the natural resources in the Islamic State.

    If money from the Ummah's resources today were distributed according to Allah's Laws, nobody in the Islamic State would be living below poverty level. Do we need relief organizations, or international aid? Or do we need the backbone to establish all the systems of Islam?

    For example, 717-720 C.E: Khalifa Omar ibn Abdul-Aziz: Under the Khalifa's guardianship, there was no poverty in the Islamic State. No one qualified for Zakah money, so the money was sent out of the State to free slaves in Europe.


    DO WE NOT SUFFICE IN NUMBERS?
    Today, there are an estimated 1.4 - 1.6 billion Muslims in the world.
    They form about ¼ of the world's population. The Prophet (peace be upon him) said: "The people will soon summon one another to attack you as people when eating invite others to share their dish." Someone asked: "Will that be because of our small numbers at that time?" He replied: "No, you will be numerous at that time: but you will be scum and rubbish like that carried down by a torrent, and Allah will remove the fear of you from the breasts of your enemy and put enervation into your hearts." Someone asked: "What is enervation?" The Apostle of Allah (peace be upon him) replied: "Love of the world and dislike of death." (Abu Dawud)


    IS IT ARMIES WE LACK? OR THE SHIELD?
    837 C.E.: Khalifa Mutasim sends the entire army of the Islamic State in response to the call for help of only one Muslim woman, who was captured by the Romans, and rescues her.

    1993: Approximately 30,000 Muslim women were raped in Bosnia alone.Their cries for help not met.

    Muslims have 119,381,333 million men available in their militaries, and 72,247,573 in military manpower fit for service.

    The Prophet (peace be upon him) said: "Behold, the Imam (Khalifa) is but a shield from behind whom the people fight and by whom they protect themselves." (Muslim)


    ARE WE NOT AWARE THAT NATIONALISM IS HARAAM
    The Muslim Ummah, which should be One, is today divided into 53 different countries, where Muslims form the majority by religion.

    The Prophet (peace be upon him) said: "The Muslim Ummah is a unique Ummah among the whole of mankind: Their Land is one, their War is one, their Peace is one, their Honor is one and their Trust is one." (Ahmed)

    The Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) said, "People should give up their pride in nations because that is a Coal from the Coals of Hell-Fire." (Abu Dawud & Tirmidhi)

    The Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) said, "He is not one of us who calls for asabiyyah, (nationalism) or who fights for asabiyyah or who dies for asabiyyah." (Abu Dawud)


    OUR POWER IS IN RE-ESTABLISHING THE SYSTEMS OF ISLAM.
    As a Muslim community, we do not lack any type of assets - whether it be natural resources, our numbers, or our capabilities. We have the power to be successful in this world and in the hereafter.

    What we lack is the proper implementation of this power. What we lack is the proper organization of the State. We have the perfect solution for our current condition in the form of the Islamic systems. The longer we delay in implementing this solution, the more will our resources be wasted in mismanagement and extortion, and the longer the Muslim Ummah suffers.

    Assalam alaikum,

    Very good article. I totally agree with you. If every day we wake up, and think how I can help in fesabililah, the answers will come our way. Our intention, should be stronger and pure, and help will come our way. May Allah guide us and establish firmly us in our deen.

    I think we need guts. Nowadays wheneve any1 speaks against any Muslim ruler, the media calls him a terrorist so the Muslims (us) are afraid of that person. Propaganda. It kills us. If only we had honest media.

    We may have strengths as outlined in the first post, but as the brother said we need Eemaan. We need to turn back to tawheed, there is a hadeeth that goes,

    "When you take part `Eena (Interest), take hold of the tails of cattle, and become content with agriculture and abandon Jihad. Allaah will send humiliation on you until you turn back to your religion" [Hasan. Abu Daawood]

    The cause is not cowardice, rather cowardice is an effect due to the cause, and the cause has been outline in the hadeeth! As for the cure, then the cure is also outlined for anyone who pays heed to the hadeeth. The scholars of Islaam, you won't find them disagreeing that returning back to the religion is a resolution to remove this humiliation upon us, and from the humiliation is cowardice.

    If one looks back in history to for example, the Islamic rule in Spain, one will come to know that they didn't get crushed by Isabelle and her armies except after they had started to allow free mixing of genders, after they started building statues; astaghfirullaah(!), after they promoted singling and dancing of female concubines in the various courts, and other public vicinities.

    Mashallah!

    :salam2:

    Brothers and Sisters isn't this just amazing that Allah (SWT) has blessed our MUSLIM countries with just beauty and provisions, Due to this reason we should be thankfull to Allah (SWT). But it is we ourselfs who are lacking faith when all we ever do is judge others inside Islam, this is what parts our Brotherhood which affects this Ummah if we had no objections to eachother no matter what the group or what we were, we would have been acting as the pure Ummah. But many people from the Ummah instruct others to do such a thing or act upon such a thing but never actually act upon situations of life as they instruct.

    And I quote `Umar Ibn Al-Khattaab, may Allaah be pleased with him, "Call yourselves to account before you are called to account".

    hmmmm
    here i a hadith i think very relevent to our current condition ,,
    "Narrated By Thawban : The Prophet (pbuh) said: The people will soon summon one another to attack you as people when eating invite others to share their dish. Someone asked: Will that be because of our small numbers at that time? He replied: No, you will be numerous at that time: but you will be scum and rubbish like that carried down by a torrent, and Allah will take fear of you from the breasts of your enemy and last enervation into your hearts. Someone asked: What is wahn (enervation). Apostle of Allah (pbuh): He replied: Love of the world and dislike of death."
