Rectifying The Ummah, Starts From Our Own Selves, By Ibn ‘Uthaymeen


Ibn ‘Uthaymeen said:

“Countries only prosper because of its citizens and the religion is only established by its people. Therefore, when the people establish the religion, Allaah will render them victorious over their enemies whoever they are.

Allaah says:

O you who believe, if you help Allaah, he will help you and make your foothold firm…” [47:7]

In view of the fact that the religion is established by its people, its duties upon us, the people of Islaam and the bearers of its flag, is to first rectify ourselves, so we can be the people of leadership, guidance, examples of success and correctness.”

He then goes on to say:

“The young boys of today will be the men of tomorrow. They are the foundation which the future of this nation is built upon. For this reason the text of the shar’iah mention incitement for caring and ultimately guiding them to good.

If the young are righteous then they become the deserving foundation of this community which the community’s future rests upon.

A society whose well-being has righteousness built upon strong pillars, religion and good character. In the end, if Allaah wills, the future will be bright and promising for the community and its pious elders.”

[Mushkilaat Ash-Shabaab, Pp. 12-14]
