A Call to be Heeded

“O you who believe! Fear Allah as He should be feared, and die not except in a state of Islam. And hold fast, all of you together, to the Rope of Allah, and be not divided among yourselves, and remember Allah’s favour on you, for you were enemies one to another but He joined your hearts together, so that, by His Grace, you became brothers, and you were on the brink of a pit of Fire, and He saved you from it. Thus Allah makes His Ayat clear to you, that you may be guided.”

“Let there arise out of you a group of people inviting to all that is good, enjoining Al-Ma’ruf and forbidding Al-Munkar. And it is they who are the successful.”

(Al-‘Imran, 3:102-104)

Allah made it clear for all time in the Qu’ran that the foundation upon which this Ummah would be built was two-fold. First and foremost, the fear of Allah in the hearts of the believers. And secondly, that the hearts of the believers would be united. Disunity is the hallmark of Shaitan’s work in the hearts of mankind. So only those whose hearts are firmly convicted of the Oneness of Allah and live accordingly in all aspects can overcome Shaitan to remain one united Ummah.
