Yemen: Questions that everyone should ask themselves

How can we prepare every single day, with a clear conscience, nice food for our children, dress them clean and well and bring them calmly and lovingly to bed, BUT watch IDLY as about 1.8 million children of the Ummah in Yemen are malnourished and mercilessly annihilated? How can we be happy that our children are growing and thriving, when an estimated 500,000 children in Yemen may not see their next birthday as a result of the today’s war against Islam.

The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said,«مَثَلُ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ فِي تَوَادِّهِمْ، وَتَرَاحُمِهِمْ، وَتَعَاطُفِهِمْ مَثَلُ الْجَسَدِ إِذَا اشْتَكَى مِنْهُ عُضْوٌ تَدَاعَى لَهُ سَائِرُ الْجَسَدِ بِالسَّهَرِ وَالْحُمَّى» “The parable of the believers in their affection, mercy, and compassion for each other is that of a body. When any limb aches, the whole body reacts with sleeplessness and fever.” (Sahih al Bukhari)

Does it not hurt us that the Muslim Ummah is in such a terrible situation today? Do we not have soft hearts that feel the horrible pain of our Muslim brothers, sisters and children? Has the treacherous Dunya blinded us so much that we are lost in our own lives and in our own little problems, forgetting that the Ummah is struggling right now to survive and that an innocent little Muslim child is dreams just about a single piece of Bread. Truly, if we turn away our heads to this crime then there is nothing good in our hearts!

The Prophet ﷺ said: «إِنَّ فِي الْجَسَدِ مُضْغَةً إِذَا صَلُحَتْ صَلُحَ الْجَسَدُ كُلُّهُ، وَإِذَا فَسَدَتْ فَسَدَ الْجَسَدُ أَلَا وَهِيَ الْقَلْبُ» “There is in the body a clump of flesh – if it becomes good, the whole body becomes good. If it becomes bad, the whole body becomes bad.” And indeed it is the heart.” (Sahih al Bukhari)

Sensations for the Ummah are important emotions. Information about the situation of the Ummah is an essential knowledge. But emotions and knowledge alone are not enough to take the pain from the Ummah. They are a start and a basis that only becomes complete when we put our feelings and thoughts into action! «اللَّهُمَّ إِنِّي أَعُوذُ بِكَ مِنْ عِلْمٍ لَا يَنْفَعُ، وَمِنْ قَلْبٍ لَا يَخْشَعُ، وَمِنْ نَفْسٍ لَا تَشْبَعُ، وَمِنْ دَعْوَةٍ لَا يُسْتَجَابُ لَهَا» “O Allah, I seek refuge in You from knowledge which does not benefit, from a heart that does not entertain the fear (of Allah), from a soul that is not satisfied and the supplication that is not answered.” (Sahih Muslim)

We see it clearly that the enemies of Islam will never help the Ummah and bring them piece. They will cause more discord between them and exploit them and their countries to realize their own evil plans.

It is equally clear that only a change of world power, that only the Caliphate (Khilafah) upon the method of the Prophethood is able to change the situation of Muslims. Because only a leader who fears Allah (swt), is careful not to let his Ummah starve and to protect them against any violence.

Why do many people still believe that America or its Versailles are interested in helping the Muslims???

Because it is the easier way, which is deceiving the Muslims and let their hearts beat not for Allah swt but for this Dunya. It is a way which motivate the Muslims to ignore the fact that today’s world power is the biggest enemy of Islam. It is finally the path that splits the Ummah, hardens their hearts and blinds them.

Dear Brothers and Sisters!

So it is in our hands which way we choose! Whether we are Muslims who take the enemies of Islam as their friends, whether we are Muslims who care only about their own worldly affairs, whether we are Muslims who reassure their conscience with a little donation or whether we are Muslims which endeavor day and night for the true salvation of the Ummah, namely the work of reestablishing the Caliphate upon the Method of the Prophethood.

يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا إِن تَنصُرُوا اللَّهَ يَنصُرْكُمْ وَيُثَبِّتْ أَقْدَامَكُمْ

“O you who have believed, if you support Allah, He will support you and plant firmly your feet.”
