On certainty that the End belongs to piety and the righteous

The End is always for the pious ones: Dear Muslim brothers! It should be known that whoever views the hijrah with an immature judgement will think Islam was moving towards extinction and decline. In actual sense, the migration vividly gives a clear lesson that the end belongs to piety and the pious ones. The prophet teaches the Mujahid on the path of Allah through his history to be firm, remain steadfast to confront the parties of evils, he should not feeble out at repelling them and straightening their crookedness. He should not be frightened as days approach, the evil has its circuits, its sects have assaults, but the end is for those who are patient and those who are peacemakers. Glad tidings of the future of religion, despite bitter reality: O Muslims: Anyone who looks at the reality of the Muslims’ nations today, and what is going on in this world and in the lands of Islam, in particular, will see phenomena which draw attention and warrant analysis. It will be manifested in these events, things that brings hope, favorable consequences, including goodness, prosperity, victory, honour and feet planting for Islam and Muslims by Allah’s leave. Often, it is repeatedly chanted to the hearing of Islamic reformers, preachers, and students that the future belongs to this religion- Islam and that victory is approaching, Allah’s willing. But a Sayer may say out of bitterness and sadness: “What Good news of future belonging to ISLAM while brutal massacres of Muslims is seen everywhere? What kind of Good news and what type of hope when enemies of Islam have connived to destroy Islam and to eradicate Muslims despite their inclinations and the multiplicity of religions. In spite of all this and even more than this, where then is the future of Islam? O believers! the darkest part of the night is the time followed by the light of dawn, surely, the dawn of Islam is inevitably approach as the inevitable approach of the night and day. The Nation of Islam had become sick and riddled with periods of long recession, but out of the grace of Allah it does not die. What eventually determines the matter in the end is not the power of falsehood, but the power of the truth. Without doubt we own the truth for which the heavens and earth were created, and the paradise and hell were created and for which the the scriptures were revealed and apostles sent. We possess the “Nature’s Reserves” as described by Sayyid Qutb. He said in an beautiful chapter titled “Nature’s Reserves”: The first day ever that Islam appears, it confronted a huge reality, it confronted beliefs and perceptions, values and scales, benefits and schism, interests and hysterical. The distance between Islam the day it came and the reality people were living with was remotely enormous. Though if it were to be said to a person in that age that this new religion will eventually be victorious it would have been met with only derision and condemnation! But this reality soon became displaced from its place for the newcomer religion. How did this seemingly impossibility became a reality? How could one man stand alone in the face of the whole world? He did not flatter their beliefs, nor flatter their feelings, he never flatter their gods, he did not distribute promises and booties using positions for those who follow him. How then did the change occurred? Verily this occurrence was possible due to the predominance and supremacy of this approach, because it is there was a mutual collaboration between the virtual reality with the “Nature Reserves”. So with us is “Nature’s Reserve”, and above all, God is with us, and what a decent accompaniment. {وَاللَّهُ غَالِبٌ عَلَى أَمْرِهِ وَلَكِنَّ أَكْثَرَ النَّاسِ لَا يَعْلَمُونَ }(يوسف : 21). “And Allah hath full power and control over His affairs; but most among mankind know it not.” (Yusuf: 21) It is truly the promise of Allah and His word: {وَلَقَدْ سَبَقَتْ كَلِمَتُنَا لِعِبَادِنَا الْمُرْسَلِينَ , إِنَّهُمْ لَهُمُ الْمَنْصُورُونَ , وَإِنَّ جُنْدَنَا لَهُمُ الْغَالِبُونَ} (الصافات: 171–173) “Already has Our Word been passed before (this) to our Servants sent (by Us), that they would certainly be assisted, and that Our forces,- they surely must conquer. (Q37: 171-173) Surely, this blessed promise is part of the fixed universal tradition of Allah which does not change, and the victory is a permanent tradition, the way planets and stars are in the space. Reasons for delay in victory: O Muslims! victory may be delayed for many reasons, but it will surely come in the end God’s willing, whatever reinforcement falsehood and its people equip themselves with in the forces of iron and fire. We have not said this as a guess into the unknown or rosy dreams for pain relief and healing. But the Qur’an speaks, the Prophet gladdens with good news and human history bears witness. Glad tidings in the book of Allah: {يُرِيدُونَ لِيُطْفِئُوا نُورَ اللَّهِ بِأَفْوَاهِهِمْ وَاللَّهُ مُتِمُّ نُورِهِ وَلَوْ كَرِهَ الْكَافِرُونَ , هُوَ الَّذِي أَرْسَلَ رَسُولَهُ بِالْهُدَى وَدِينِ الْحَقِّ لِيُظْهِرَهُ عَلَى الدِّينِ كُلِّهِ وَلَوْ كَرِهَ الْمُشْرِكُونَ}(الصف : 8 - 9) Their intention is to extinguish Allah's Light (by blowing) with their mouths: But Allah will complete (the revelation of) His Light, even though the Unbelievers may detest (it). It is He Who has sent His Messenger with Guidance and the Religion of Truth, that he may proclaim it over all religion, even though the Pagans may detest (it). (As-Saff: 8-9) Allah promises believers victory, He said: {وَلَقَدْ أَرْسَلْنَا مِنْ قَبْلِكَ رُسُلًا إِلَى قَوْمِهِمْ فَجَاءُوهُمْ بِالْبَيِّنَاتِ فَانْتَقَمْنَا مِنَ الَّذِينَ أَجْرَمُوا وَكَانَ حَقًّا عَلَيْنَا نَصْرُ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ}(الروم : 47, “We did indeed send, before thee, messengers to their (respective) peoples, and they came to them with Clear Signs: then, to those who transgressed, We meted out Retribution: and it was due from Us to aid those who believed.” (Ar-Rum: 47) Allah says: {يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا إِنْ تَنْصُرُوا اللَّهَ يَنْصُرْكُمْ وَيُثَبِّتْ أَقْدَامَكُمْ} (محمد : 7) “O ye who believe! If ye will aid (the cause of) Allah, He will aid you, and plant your feet firmly.” (Q47: 7) Allah (swt) informs that He helps His believers when they assist and strive in support of Allah’s religion. Even if this tradition occasionally is delayed for a reason best known to Allah in His divine wisdom, it does not negate the principle that victory belongs to those who assist the religion of God. That also include the firm planting of their feet on earth. {وَعَدَ اللَّهُ الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا مِنْكُمْ وَعَمِلُوا الصَّالِحَاتِ لَيَسْتَخْلِفَنَّهُمْ فِي الْأَرْضِ كَمَا اسْتَخْلَفَ الَّذِينَ مِنْ قَبْلِهِمْ وَلَيُمَكِّنَنَّ لَهُمْ دِينَهُمُ الَّذِي ارْتَضَى لَهُمْ وَلَيُبَدِّلَنَّهُمْ مِنْ بَعْدِ خَوْفِهِمْ أَمْنًا يَعْبُدُونَنِي لا يُشْرِكُونَ بِي شَيْئًا وَمَنْ كَفَرَ بَعْدَ ذَلِكَ فَأُولَئِكَ هُمُ الْفَاسِقُونَ} (النور : 55), “Allah has promised, to those among you who believe and work righteous deeds, that He will, of a surety, grant them in the land, inheritance (of power), as He granted it to those before them; that He will establish in authority their religion - the one which He has chosen for them; and that He will change (their state), after the fear in which they (lived), to one of security and peace: 'They will worship Me (alone) and not associate aught with Me. 'If any do reject Faith after this, they are rebellious and wicked.” (An-Nur: 55) In the verse, Allah promises the believers attainment of authority in the land, establishment of their religion, what hope for Muslims is greater than the promise of Allah? What hope there exists after this for a true believer? Other promises in the Qur’an include: {إِنَّ الَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا يُنْفِقُونَ أَمْوَالَهُمْ لِيَصُدُّوا عَنْ سَبِيلِ اللَّهِ فَسَيُنْفِقُونَهَا ثُمَّ تَكُونُ عَلَيْهِمْ حَسْرَةً ثُمَّ يُغْلَبُونَ وَالَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا إِلَى جَهَنَّمَ يُحْشَرُون} (الأنفال : 36) “The Unbelievers spend their wealth to hinder (man) from the path of Allah, and so will they continue to spend; but in the end they will have (only) regrets and sighs; at length they will be overcome: and the Unbelievers will be gathered together to Hell” (Anfaal: 36) How many billions is spent and still being spent freely horrible manner only to repel from the path of God and to remove the religion of Allah. How many billions is spent to evangelize Muslims? How much of the billions is spent to destroy the family institution among Muslims? How much of the billions is spent to undermine and corrupt stated morals by spreading immorality through satellite and through pornographic films, promiscuous serials, licentiously shameless pictures and immoral stories. Now, through the use of Internet networks, it has found its way into every room with ease without guard. But what is the result, the result, God willing, is His promises: { فَسَيُنْفِقُونَهَا ثُمَّ تَكُونُ عَلَيْهِمْ حَسْرَةً ثُمَّ يُغْلَبُونَ وَالَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا إِلَى جَهَنَّمَ يُحْشَرُون} (الأنفال : 36) “… and so will they continue to spend; but in the end they will have (only) regrets and sighs; at length they will be overcome: and the Unbelievers will be gathered together to Hell” (Anfaal: 36) Ponder also on His word: “As for them, they are but plotting a scheme, And I am planning a scheme. Therefore grant a delay to the Unbelievers: Give respite to them gently (for awhile).” (Tariq: 15 - 17) Whatever scheme these people plots and whatever war they wage against the religion of Allah, Allah is patiently watching them, they are the enemies of God before they became enemies of Muslims. Some the Prophetic Glad Tidings: O Muslims! Listen to the prophetic promises which affirm these realities. From Tamim Ad-Dari may Allah be pleased with him said: I heard the Messenger of Allah peace be upon him says: ((This issue shall reach all the areas reached by the day and night, Allah (swt) will not leave out a house except that He brings Islam into it- giving honour to those who accept it and humiliate rejecters, Allah honours the believer and humiliates the Kafir. The prophet (pbuh) says: “A sect among my Ummah will remain evident on the truth, whoever forsakes them or contradicts them cannot do them any harm until the command of Allah comes and they will remain as such. Dear Muslims! I swear by Allah- no other god except Him, that the reign of Islam is fast approaching. It is the religion approved by Allah: {إِنَّ الدِّينَ عِنْدَ اللَّهِ الإِسْلامُ}(آل عمران : 19) The Religion before Allah is Islam (submission to His Will): Nor did the People of the Book dissent therefrom except through envy of each other, after knowledge had come to them. But if any deny the Signs of Allah, Allah is swift in calling to account. (Q3: 19) {الْيَوْمَ أَكْمَلْتُ لَكُمْ دِينَكُمْ وَأَتْمَمْتُ عَلَيْكُمْ نِعْمَتِي وَرَضِيتُ لَكُمُ الإِسْلاَمَ دِينًا} (المائدة : 3). This day have I perfected your religion for you, completed My favour upon you, and have chosen for you Islam as your religion. But if any is forced by hunger, with no inclination to transgression, Allah is indeed Oft-forgiving, Most Merciful. (Q5: 3) And destruction is coming, God’s willing, on those who disbelief, are misguided and fight Islam and Muslims. Allah says: وَأنَّ الدِّمَارَ قَادِمٌ بِإذْنِ اللهِ لِمَنْ عَلَى شَاكِلَتِهِمْ مِنَ الْكُفْرِ وَالضَّلاَلِ ومَحَارَبَةِ الإسْلامِ وَأهْلِهِ، وَصَدَقَ اللهُ العَظِيمُ: {وَلا يَزَالُ الَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا تُصِيبُهُمْ بِمَا صَنَعُوا قَارِعَةٌ أَوْ تَحُلُّ قَرِيبًا مِنْ دَارِهِمْ حَتَّى يَأْتِيَ وَعْدُ اللَّهِ إِنَّ اللَّهَ لَا يُخْلِفُ الْمِيعَادَ} (الرعد : 31) But the Unbelievers,- never will disaster cease to seize them for their (ill) deeds, or to settle close to their homes, until the promise of Allah come to pass, for, verily, Allah will not fail in His promise. (Rad: 31) The world today is searching for a saviour and there is none except Islam. Second Sermon All praises are due to Allah …. O Muslims! The tragedy that happened last Saturday when a helicopter crashed killing the Executive Governor of Kaduna, is an admonition and a reminder to us. We must prepare for death with good works. Allah says: “Say: "The Death from which ye flee will truly overtake you: then will ye be sent back to the Knower of things secret and open: and He will tell you (the truth of) the things that ye did!” (Jum’ah: 8).
