Picture Is Showing Ummah Is Dead or muffled

اسیر کر کہ کہہ دیا کے بال و پر میں دم نہیں
در قفس جو کھولتے تو پھر اڑان دیکھتے۔۔۔

(After imprisonment were we told that we lacked strength; were the doors of prison unlocked would they see the flight)
United we stand; divided we fall. A lone wolf separated from his pack is easy to hunt. We see less of a united Muslim world nowadays. We are no stranger to the line “Ummah is dead.” Many blame that the concept of one Ummah has lived its life. And now the Muslims don’t act like one body. A body that feels pain if one of its organs is hurt. The enemies of the Muslims attack one of their states without the fear of reprisal, and all other Muslim states turn a blind eye to its collapse. Is it really a truthful statement? Is the Ummah dead?

This proposition is fallacious. It is based on a logical fallacy. It is not that the Muslims do not want to help their brothers in discomfort rather they cannot help them. The Muslims of the world are divided into many small and mostly resource-hungry states that find it very hard to fend for themselves. Most of them are struggling with internal crises. The Muslims living in these states are in distress when their brethren are attacked by enemies. But they are often unable to do anything for them, for the ground realities don’t let them do anything practical for them. The Al-Aqsa Mosque is under attack, and Palestinians are sacrificing their lives for freedom from oppression. The Muslims all around the world are worried about them. They endure pain when they see their Muslim brothers and sisters being butchered in Palestine. From Indonesia to Malaysia and from Pakistan to Turkey all the Muslims are highly concerned about Palestinian Muslims’ plight. They want to help, but circumstances don’t allow them. Their states are not powerful enough to confront the enemy states.
In addition, many powerful and resource-rich Muslim states are in the grip of cruel authoritarianism. Dictators and kings are seculars and follow their vested interests at the cost of Ummah’s interests. They rule over a large section of Ummah with an iron fist. Freedom of speech and association is a nightmare for them, so they do not let their masses have it. Arabs under dictators and kings are in no position to support their Palestinian brothers under Israeli occupation.
To cut it short, the Ummah is not dead. It is in shackles. Poverty, inability and dictatorship are holding them back from extending practical support to their oppressed brothers. The sense of unity and being one is not dead. The love for one another has not gone away. Soon as it breaks the shackles, it will unite in action. We should not be hopeless as Doctor Muhammad Iqbal says
نہیں ہے نا امید اقبال اپنی کشت ویراں سے
زرا نم ہو تو یہ مٹی بڑی زرخیز ہے ساقی۔۔۔

  1. Hey are using WordPress for your site platform? I’m new to the blog

    different topic but it has pretty much the same layout and design. Excellent choice of colors!

  3. Today, I went to the beach front with my children. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell to her ear and
    screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.

    to tell someone!

  21. In JAWS THE REVENGE, the shark pulls Michael Caine’s 4-seater airplane underneath the water, and it’s fairly ridiculous; in MEGA SHARK 1, the titular creature leaps from the depths of the ocean and climbs to the cruising
    altitude of a 747, then eats that 747, and it is pretty fucking excellent, in addition to being super-ridiculous.

  24. Another a part of the overall Pokemon Duel landscape that is
    not immediately clear is that there are special objects called Ingots which you could promote for cash instead of using as fodder
    to stage up your Pokemon by means of Fusion.

  25. When I initially commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and now each time a comment is added I get four e-mails with the same comment.
