Question

I'm a university student. I find myself pretty
confused in the present situation, with the
conditions of the Muslims. I feel that the
people who are adhering to the Shari'ah are
not taking any action and the people who are
taking action against non-Muslims are people
who lack Islamic knowledge. Am I just
aimlessly running, trying to do things as per
Sunnah and in the long run I'm not getting
anything done. There was a demonstration in
my university for the Palestinians, although I
really wanted to participate but I didn't
because of the Fataaw given by some
Sheikhs. If we can't do demonstrations, what
can we general people do? Muslims in my
university also want to write letters to the
US president and I personally don't feel good
about it. I feel that we are asking help from
Kuffaar and not relying on Allah. My mind is
really confused. Could you please help me
out? Clarify these issues.

Fatwa:
All perfect praise be to Allah, The Lord of the
Worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of
worship except Allah, and that Muhammad
is His slave and Messenger.

No doubt, the present situation of Muslims,
especially in Palestine, is very painful for all
Muslims. Every Muslim's heart is full of
sorrow for what is happening. So, there is no
astonishment if you are confused. The only
solution to get out of this hard situation is to
sincerely follow the Shari'ah. The basic
reason for the disrespect and humiliation of
the Muslim Ummah is the neglect of the
religion. Imaam Abu Dawood and others
narrated from Ibn Umar, may Allah
be pleased with him,that the Prophet
said: "When you enter into the 'Eenah
transaction (kind of forbidden usurious
transaction), hold the tails of cows (and
oxen) are pleased with agriculture (i.e. being
engaged with worldly matters), and give up
conducting Jihaad. Allah will make disgrace
prevail over you, and will not withdraw it
until you return to your religion faithfully" .
Imaam Abu Dawood also narrated from
Thawbaan , may Allah be pleased with him,
that the Prophet 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 put Wahn (enervation) into your
hearts. Someone asked: What is 'Wahn', O
Apostle of Allah? He replied: Love of the
world and dislike of death.

The whole Ummah should return to its
religion in order to be honored. This task
would be achieved only by intense struggle
and making all possible efforts in order to
raise and train individuals of this Ummah in
all required fields. Indeed, on the one hand,
this training needs good planning and, on the
other hand, acting according to achieve the
goals.
After planning and setting good aims, it is
compulsory to have a strategy to achieve
those aims. In fact, the talk about this matter
takes time and is a long subject.
There are many good efforts made by Muslim
reformers and callers to Islam; surely they
will be fruitful after a while.
As for demonstration, it is permissible; it
may be a way to force the oppressor to stop
his bad practice. It is also an indication of
condemning what is taking place and
expressing support for the oppressed. Even
though some scholars believe that it is not
lawful based on their Ijtihaad (legal opinion)
while others do not agree with them. Each
group will be rewarded by Allah since the
Prophet said: "If a judge gives a verdict
according to the best of his knowledge and
his verdict is correct (i.e. agrees with Allah
and His Apostle's verdict) he will receive a
double reward, and if he gives a verdict
according to the best of his knowledge and
his verdict is wrong, (i.e. against that of
Allah and His Apostle ) even then he will
get a reward" .

As for your question, what can we do? There
are many things we can do; some of them
are as follows:
· First of all we should correct ourselves.
· Then we should correct our families.
· We should correct our relatives and
neighbours.
· We should try our best to correct the
Muslims.
· We have to carry out the job of enjoining
good and forbidding evil.
· We should acquire the Islamic knowledge
and spread it.
· We should support the Muslims in Palestine
and everywhere with our money.
· We should raise our hands towards Allah
with full humility to change the Muslims'
situation for the better and to help the weak
Muslims.
Indeed, there are many other acts one can
do.

As for sending a letter to US president, we
advise you not to ask for assistance from
him even though it is permissible since the
Prophet said: "Indeed Allah may support
this religion (i.e. Islam) even with a
disobedient man." [Reported by Imaams al-
Bukhari and Muslim].

They always try to disturb Muslims, and they
were and are with Jews. They equally support
each other in their mischief.
We ask Allah to drive away the worries of
Muslims, protect us from the mischief of
mischief-makers through anything He wants.
We make Allah our refuge against them,
seeking His protection from their harms. He
is sufficient for us. There is no shelter and
protection except by Him.

Allah Knows best.
