Dear brothers and sisters
I just wanted to open a new topic and get your opinions which are really profound for me

The questions are:
1) "Are we happy and satisfied with the position of muslims in the world today, whom most are poor, in misery and living in muslim countries which are constantly persecuted and exploited by Western countries and Israel?"

"....persecution is worse than slaughter" Qur'an 2 / 191

2) "If no, as individual members of Islam, what should we do to improve this pathetic reality? Do you feel any responsibility for that or what is to be blamed? What made us (muslims) lead the world both in civilization and technology in the middle-ages and what made us fall in that miserable heart breaking condition? Should we change ourselves?"

"...Allah changeth not the condition of a folk until they change that which is in their hearts..." Qur'an 13/11

I agree with u bro.. :(


And why should ye not fight in the cause of Allah and of those who, being weak, are ill-treated (and oppressed)?- Men, women, and children, whose cry is: "Our Lord! Rescue us from this town, whose people are oppressors; and raise for us from thee one who will protect; and raise for us from thee one who will help!" (04:75)


But the answers in the ayah/verse before it.

Therefore let those fight in the way of Allah, who sell this world's life for the hereafter; and whoever fights in the way of Allah, then be he slain or be he victorious, We shall grant him a mighty reward. (04:74)

Those who believe fight in the way of Allah, and those who disbelieve fight in the way of the Shaitan. Fight therefore against the friends of the Shaitan; surely the strategy of the Shaitan is weak. (4:76)


We're too attatched to this dunya (this life), and if we really want jannah, we have to strive for it.

Do men think that they will be left alone on saying, We believe, and not be tried? (29:2)

And certainly We tried those before them, so Allah will certainly know those who are true and He will certainly know the liars. (29:3)

Yes you are both totaly correct...We must change ourselves before we can change others...we should make the disbelievers think that these Muslims are those who we can trust our money with ect.
