Confronting the Enemies

Confronting the Enemies

According to news that some churches are converting the Muslim boys into Christianity. If this is true, definitely a concerted effort by the enemy of Islam. Thus it is incumbent upon the Muslim leaders and the scholars to immediately exert swiftly efforts to enlighten and direct the Muslims as well as combat the enemies of Islam, by retaliating them with right solutions. The Muslim must rise and support those efforts.

The Muslim Ummah has been entrusted with the responsibility of conveying the conveying the message of Islam. If we are vigilant to arm our youth with knowledge, understanding and comprehension of Islamic Jurisprudence and accustom them to apply these things from a small age, then we will not fear, by the grace of Allah, the Most Exalted, as long as they continue to holding onto the deen of Allah, glorifying it, following its laws, and fighting that which contradicts it. And indeed their enemies will fear them.

Allah s.w.t says in the Qur’an:

“O you who believe! If you help Allah, He will help you and make your foothold firm”. [Muhammad, 47:7]

“If you remain patient and become al-Muttaqun (pious) not the least harm will their cunning to do you. Surely Allah surrounds all that they do”. [Al-Imran, 3:120]

There are many verses in the Qur’an which convey this message. The most important factor for us in fighting against the efforts of our enemies is raising and preparing a generation that knows the reality of Islam. This can be achieved through guidance, taking care of the house and family, the method of educating them, the media and improvement of the society.

In addition to this is the role of steering and guiding which needs to be taken by the Muslim leadership, persevering in beneficial work and continually reminding the people that which will benefit them and make the belief within them grow and flourish.
