The Ramadan Message
[Ramadan is the month in which the Qur’an was sent down, as a guide to mankind, also clear Signs for guidance and judgement (between right and wrong). So every one of you who is present during that month should spend it in fasting [TMQ 2.185].During the blessed month of Ramadan the Muslims increase their recitation and implementation of the Qur’an, for it is during this sublime month that the glorious Qur’an was revealed. The Quran divided everything clearly between right and wrong, between Haq (truth) and Batil (falsehood) and between Kufr (disbelief) and Iman. It is filled with verses about the ongoing struggle between these two sides since the time of Adam (as) and until the departure of the noble Messenger (saw). The severe harm that befell the Messenger of Allah (saw) and his loyal companions did not put them off from the mission to make Islam victorious over all other Deens (religions, ideologies etc) because “It is He Who has sent His Messenger with Guidance and the Deen of Haq, that he may He may make it conquer over all other Deens, even though the Pagans may hate it. (TMQ 61:9)
After the victory of Islam through the rise of the Islamic State in Medina, the struggle against Kufr and its followers continued until the present era. Then, the Islamic State was destroyed in 1924, Islam was removed from governing and confined to the rituals and worships. The ideas and laws of Kufr crept in and the Ummah suffered decades of humiliation, losing her might and glory, and the Kufr states conspired to humiliate the Muslims, tread on their pride and steal the resources of their lands with the help of the rulers who are nothing but the spies and slaves of their kuffar masters.
After the fall of Communism, the only remaining ideology was Islam which posed a threat to Capitalism and America’s new status as sole superpower. So the west led by America increased their campaign to fight Islam, openly declaring their war on Islam in 2001 under the title of “War on Terror”. Bush stated the War on Islam was a “crusade” and openly stated their target was to prevent the rise of the Islamic State which would unify all the Muslim lands and threaten them and their secular ideology.
The invasions of Iraq and Afghanistan were intended to strike Islam out of the Ummah altogether by imposing the Kufr democracy on these lands and using them as springboards to spread their ideology to the rest of the Muslims as part of what they called “The Greater Middle-East Initiative” hoping Muslims would embrace secularism which would neutralize the threat from Islam permanently. When Bush referred to “drying up the terrorist sources and nests”, he was referring to the Madrassas, Shari'ah schools and the mosques' circles which addressed the Quranic concepts related to Jihad, enmity towards Kufr and the Kuffar and how the Kuffar will never stop their campaign against Islam until the Muslims left Islam.
They began propagating a new religion called “Moderate Islam” to replace Islam in which the verses of the Quran related to the superiority of Islam over Kufr, Kuffar being the enemy of Islam, Jihad, ruling by Shariah, would be re-interpreted and explained away as not being relevant anymore, as if Islam only came for the 7th Century! They employed “scholars” with great titles and costumes and set-up “Islamic” organizations and forums to promote “Moderate Islam” and the secular kufr concepts of Freedom, Democracy and Human Rights which are part of this new religion, smearing true Islam with terms such as “Islamism” and “radical Islam” in order to deceive the Ummah into adopting secularism.
Muslims need to appreciate the potential power of their Ummah should they establish Islam completely by establishing the Islamic State in the same way America and the West appreciates this. As the Ummah awakes to this potential and the determination increases to work towards establishing it, victory will be for Islam as Falsehood is bound to be destroyed by the Truth. And Islam will prevail, not Freedom & Democracy as Bush often repeats.
We hurl the Truth against falsehood, and it knocks out its brain, and behold, falsehood does perish (TMQ 21.18)
The month of fasting has historically always been a turning point for many important battles and struggles between Islam and Kufr. In this month, the resolve of the Ummah is renewed, thus rushing towards struggle and sacrifice in the hope of gaining what Allah has promised us in terms of reward and blessing. So what are we expected to do today now that we have lost our authority, our Ummah has become divided, our holy sites have been occupied, our blood has been spilt, our honour has been violated, our homes have been flattened, the rules and laws of Kufr have dominated our lands and Islam has been fought by the agent rulers of our lands?
So would this noble month act as a ray of light to the Muslims, from which they seek determination and strive to destroy the Kufr and its systems from the Islamic lands, and work with those leading the struggle towards establishing Islam in the realm of life, the state and society, by establishing the Islamic Khilafah State?
