Unity of the muslim ummah

The Muslim ummah is suffering a lot due to its own mistakes. We as part of this ummah should try our best to revive this great civilisation insha-Allah.
Allah Subhana WA Tawala has assured us, that if we follow the Quran and the Sunnah of our beloved prophet Mohammad SAW, we will be successful in this world as well as in the hereafter.

The victory has already been promised to us. So what are we waiting for? Why are we still sleeping? Though we have been provided with the best of knowledge, we are not motivated enough to seek and learn that knowledge. As a result, we lack confidence in propagating Islam the ultimate truth. Unfortunately, most of us are suffering from identity crisis. We are in confusion as the world around us is portraying us as the criminals, the terrorists and so on. It seems like all the negative words are exclusively allocated for us, the Muslims. As everyone else is defining us who we are ( the so called western super powers & the western media) we feel like we have lost the right to say who we really are and what is our purpose in this world.

However, Allah swt has already told us everything we must know about us and our duties. We the human beings are the most sophisticated creature on this earth (Asharful Mahklukat) and we need a manual to run ourselves. Allah the Almighty has provided us with that important manual which is the Quran. Subhanallah. Most of us are not aware of the purpose of our existence and the duties towards our lord ALLAH swt. Is it not sheer disgrace? How are we going to stand in front of Him on the day of judgement? What excuses we can come with?

I as a Muslim sister feel very frustrated to witness the weakness of our sisters in the ummah. I feel ashamed of our lack of seriousness. As the half of the ummah we women can do so many things to unite the Muslims around the world. According to the so called western values and norms we may be regarded as powerless, oppressed, suppressed, and depressed and so on, but we know very well how Allah swt has gifted us with tremendously huge amount of blessings, alhmadulillah. As daughters, sisters, friends, wives, mothers we can influence and motivate the Muslim ummah to unite under the banner of Islam.

Some of my writings will be related to women and their role in uniting the ummah against all the oppression. We need to be more vocal in our work. The media has painted a very wrong and stereotyped image of us and we need to fight back and convey the real message of Islam and how it has honoured us as muslim women, Insha-Allah.

I believe internet can be a very useful tool in propagating the real message of Islam and uniting the ummah and bring back the just & powerful Islamic civilisation . I would really appreciate your feedback regarding my writings, May Allah make us carry out our duties to the full extent and grant us jannah out of His unlimited mercy, ameen. May Allah SWT bless our beloved prophet Mohammad SAW and his family and companions and the righteous Muslims who came after them, ameen.
