QuestionWe know very well that all things, including us were created by Allah, “But while we have submitted to Allah and have believed in Him, the keys to our livelihood are in the hands of our enemies – the disbelievers.” How can we explain this?Answer
Muslim believe that Allah Almighty has created everything and that everything occurs according to His will – what He wills, happens; what He doesn’t will, doesn’t happen.
Furthermore, He is the One Who gives life and brings death. He Alone gives and takes away; He Alone causes both sickness and the cure. No one can prevent what He gives, and no one can give what He prevents. Everything that happens to man, including all harms and sufferings, was decreed – Allah fully knew those matters, and He has written them in the Al-Lawh Al-Mahfuz. Then Allah Almighty protected His servants, the believers, those who do good, the people of truth and sincerity. He protects them and makes them victorious. Allah Almighty says:“If you help (in the cause of) Allah, He will help you.” (Surah Muhammad 47:7)
He aids them with strength, and the angels descent to fight with them and to defend them against the plots of the disbelievers.“Truly, Allah defends those who believe. (Surah Al-Hajj 22: 38)
He breaches the disbelievers’ machinations to destroy the Muslims, even if it be atomic bombs or chemical weapons or other than that. They are all Allah’s will and control. They are only given supremacy over a people when the people has disobeyed, opposed the truth, or associated partners with Allah in what He has revealed no authority for. They spread wickedness, abandon acts of worship, shun the Masajid, abandon the society and congregations, the legitimize fornications and other than that, drinking wine, consuming drugs, abandoning the Prayer, following desires. So then Allah gave their enemies authority over them, just as Allah gave Fir’awn authority over the Children of Israel, punishing them with an evil punishment. In a Hadith Qudsi, Allah Almighty says:“If one who knows ME disobeys ME, I will give a free hand over him to one that doesn’t know ME” (Al-Bidayah wa-Nihayah 13/88)
In these times, only those who have abandoned the rulings of the Shariah have been subjugated, exchanging it for man-made laws, legitimizing many unlawful things and leaving most of the obligations.
When these evils become prevalent among the Muslims, the disbelievers subjugate them, kill them, and plunder them. But when the people of Islam return to their true religion, Allah Almighty gives them their turn and helps them to victory.“So do not become weak (against your enemy), nor be sad, and you will be superior (in victory) if you are indeed (true) believers. (Surah Al-Imran 3: 139)
