Why Muslims are under oppression in many parts of the world ?
The Muslim Ummah was never confronted with such a dilemma in the past during Islamic rule. They never suffered from disunity, widespread oppression, stagnation in science and technology and certainly not from the internal conflicts that we have witnessed this century like the Iran-Iraq war. So what has gone wrong with the Muslims this century? Why are there so many feuds between them and why are they seen to be fighting each other? What has caused their weakness and how will they ever recover from the present stagnation?
Allah the Almighty has prescribed the Shariah/Khilafah/Islamic Rule as the shield of Muslim Ummah. But, Muslims lost it for worldly desires. That’s why we see the severe consequences of that terrible disobedience.
Allah says in the holy Qur’an,
"O you who believe! Fear Allah as He should be feared and die not except in a state of Islam. And hold fast together all of you to the rope of Allah, and be not divided among yourselves; and remember with gratitude Allah’s favors on you; for you were enemies and He joined your hearts in love, so that by His Grace you became brothers; and you were on the brink of the pit of fire, and He saved you from it. Thus Allah makes His signs clear to you that you may be guided." [Qur'an 3: 102-103]
Prophet Muhammad (S.A) said, "The Muslims are like a body, if one part of the body hurts, rest of the body will also suffer" [Muslim]
