Nations owe survival to unity. The Muslim Ummah (Nation) passed through a bleak period of disintegration after the fall of Ottoman Caliphate and was divided into various sects. This disunity resulted into intellectual decline, perversion, loss of cordial values like sincerity, patience, tolerance, self-sacrifice. Owing to mutual disharmony, Muslim Countries were subjugated one after another by the enemies. Consequently, the Ummah (Nation) at large is surrounded by problems and worries at present.
It is the height of misfortune and disunity that in case of attack on one Muslim country, another Muslim country signs co-operation pact with the invader and provides all kind of support for it. Recent Iraq-Iran, Iraq-Kuwait wars and attacks on Iraq and Afghanistan are instances of this regrettable fact. In these circumstances when unity of Ummah (Nation) has been totally shattered, any attempt to unite the Muslims on a single platform is indeed a divine blessing.
The Unity of Muslim Ummah (Nation) is the Conceit Dream of Islamic world, There are compassionate Muslim leaders being always ardent to complete this interpretation. Sultan Muhammad Ali took up the responsibility of this work and also organizing the seminars in big cities of country (Pakistan) with the title of “Struggle for Unity of Muslim Ummah (Nation)”
They tried to remember the forgotten lesson of unity of Muslim nation of Islamic world with the concloement. we welcome by heart to Sahibzada Sultan Muhammad Ali for this noble struggle and also prays for the renaissance of completion of these strives in favour of Islam.
Struggle for this noble cause has been initiated from the shrine of a well renowned saint Hadrat Sultan Bahoo (Allah Bless His Soul).
Efforts of Islahee Jamaat and Aalmi Tanzeem-ul-Arifeen in this regard are quite evident. In these circumstances when unity of Ummah has been totally shattered, to unite the Muslims on a single platform we are organizing Seminar with the title “Struggle for Unity of Ummah” under the platform of Islahee Jamaat every year all over the country in major cities to underscore the need and importance of unity among the Muslims.
One of the greatest blessings of Allah that He created us all as human beings and then he further blessed us with the honour of being Ummah of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (blessing and salutation be on him), for whom everything has been created as Allah said! “Had I not created you (the Holy Prophet (blessing and salutation be on him)), I would not have unveiled Myself.”
Scriptures of history are witness to the fact that the Muslims were successful as long as they remained sincere, active and their characters were embellished with cordial virtues like purity, veracity, honesty etc. However, they were doomed to descent and humiliation when they turned blind to these attributes.
The moment our enemies had an opportunity, they entangled the Muslims in sectarianism, mutual bickering and subsequently we were divided. The Muslims started targeting their brethren and we are totally disintegrated now.
Consequently, Islamic values were not only tarnished but also rendered ineffective. Our worship did not yield the desired fruits. We had to face degradation and disgrace all around.
Allah has ordained us not to be passive and sullen and has assured us of victory provided we are true believers (Momin).
Therefore if we shun lethargy, hypocrisy and purify our outer as well as inner selves, all our woes and worries would be over.
We all are Muslims having one Allah, one Prophet and one Book as Iqbal said:
Our Divine Book is absolute and perfect, above any change. It is source of light and guidance for the whole humanity till Doomsday. It is preserved in our hearts as Allama Iqbal explains the relationship between man and Quran in these words:
If we analyze our own condition in the light of assurance by Allah that we will be victorious, then the question arises why we are not dominant in the world. But for that we will have to ask ourselves if we fulfill the condition of being true believer (Momin).
My dear compatriots and brethren, when a nation or Ummah does not have unanimous opinion, one objective and unity and above all, when worship too is offered as a mere ritual, then that Ummah can by no means avert wrath and curse of Allah.
We lack fraternity and are against our own brethren; our social, economic, political, moral systems are against the Quranic injunctions; for us rule, wealth, property, materialism, greed, avarice are all. With such an abject, bleak and regrettable condition, we cannot avoid the condemnation of Allah. We need to be united first to revive and strengthen our own faith and then to restore the lost glory of the Ummah.
Join hands, equip ourselves with the outer (worldly) as well as inner (spiritual) resources/might and strengthen our faith to neutralize the intrigues of the opponents and to revive the glory of Islam.
I am always optimistic about the future of the Muslim Ummah as Iqbal said:
Efforts in this regard are quite evident, In these circumstances when unity of Ummah has been totally shattered, to unite the Muslims on a single platform we are organizing Seminar with the title “Struggle for Unity of Ummah” under the platform of Islahee Jamaat every year all over the country in major cities to underscore the need and importance of unity among the Muslims.
