The next question, day by moment,
from Poona, India she asks.
Usually, we see our Muslim brothers and sisters aren't as successful as a non Muslim counterparts. Is it because we are in minorities? Or is there any other reason?
what is the reason that we are in the state
of Lord Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him said, it is mentioned in a hadith
that the nations they will call upon each other, and they will set up against you, just like how the diner set on the food. So the Sahaba they asked, that, will we be small in number? The Prophet peace be upon him said no, but you will be large in number, but you will be like the froth on the sea.
And Allah subhanaw taala he will remove the fear of you from the heart of your enemies, and he will cast one in your hearts, the Sahaba they ask, what is what sobre la Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him, he said, hope would dunya walk around here to remote, the love of this world and the hatred for that.
Unfortunately, we love the life of this world. And many times we tend to love the things in this world and we forget the home of the hereafter which is eternal. The life of the hereafter it is eternal and that should be a prime focus.
The oma is in decadence. The Muslims are divided today. We are away from the teachings of the glorious for an
Allah subhanaw taala says in the glorious for an enthralling Ron chap number three was the 103 Why does c mu be heavily laggy Jamia well as for Roku, whole fast the rope of Allah strongly and be not divided the rope of Allah it is the glorious for an we need to stick to the teachings of the glorious Koran.
So this is very important. And along with that we need to follow the sayings of our beloved Prophet Muhammad peace be upon
upload Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him, he said, that I have left behind two things, if you stick to it, you will not go astray and that is the glorious for an and the authentic things of Abdullah Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him. If we stick to these two things we Muslims we will not go astray we Muslims we need to be united on the glorious for an we need to follow the teachings of our beloved Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him, and we will not go astray. Look at the lifestyle of our beloved Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him look at the lifestyle of the Sahaba they were the best generations.
The Sahaba they were torchbearers of the world, the prophet peace be upon him he created human beings
who were torchbearers of the world, he delivered the message the Sahaba, who were torchbearers of the world.
And what was the reason that they were so successful?
Because they had trust in Allah subhanaw taala. They follow the commandments of Abdullah, Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him, they give preference to the life of the hereafter more than the life of this world. From the eighth to 13th century, it was known as the Dark Ages, dark for who, for the Europeans, but it was the best age for the Muslims after the time of the Sahaba
because there was so much Advancement of Science and Technology, the Muslims, they were front in the aspects of the world when it came to advancements.
And to the fee are divided, what is the reason for our downfall? We do not follow the Quran, nor do we follow the teachings of our beloved Prophet Muhammad peace be upon if we follow the Quran and the teachings of our beloved Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him, we will inshallah be on top of the world. We need to stick to these two teachings
and inshallah we'll be on top of the world. Coming to your last part of the question when you said that these non Muslims they are successful, what do you mean by success is success based on wealth? Is it based on witness, but the to success is the success in the hereafter? You may not be successful in this world, but in the Hereafter, you will have the to success many non Muslims they may be successful in this world, but in the hereafter did not have their share.
As Allah subhanaw taala says in Surah Baqarah chapter two was to 155 Well, I never knew one can be a mineral how few will do Wanaka see mineral and Wiley will enforce your femoral wabasha disability and we shall show
test you with something of fear and hunger and some loss of lives. So give glad tidings to those who patiently persevere.
So I would repeat we need to stick to the teachings of the Glorious Qur'an and the teachings of our beloved Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him and we Muslims, we will be on top of the world and we will not go astray
