How We Fail As An Ummah – Mufti Menk

“Every small thing, we are divided..”

“If you are to dispute and argue, what will happen? You will lose your power…”

“Today, we have 2 billion Muslims on the globe, we cannot agree to swat a fly. Why? Because everyone is a ‘BIG Sheikh’ on his own. And everyone wants to have a big say and the Sheikhs are fighting each other, each one calling the other a Kafir.”

“So what is happening? Our leaders are debating and arguing and fighting and calling each other names. The public are even more confused because any message of goodness – they are kept away…”

“Allah says in the Quran (8:46): ‘Follow Allah and follow His Rasul and do not dispute with one another…’ because it would result in your total failure and the going away or snatching away of your might as an ummah. Gone. Totally gone. Why? Because small disputes. Today, brothers and sisters don’t speak to each other. What a shame.”

“What are you talking about? We are an ummah! We share the Shahadah. That’s enough! Put aside your differences and come together. We need the might as an ummah. We have the numbers, we have everything! But the problem is we are disputing.”

“So Allah SWT warns us in the Quran (8:73), ‘The Kuffar, they are supporters and protectors of one another. Come what may. They put aside their differences when it comes to sticking up to one another.’

Then, He says, ‘If you are not going to do the same, there will be great fitnah and fasad on earth.’ That means if you are not going to stick up for one another and protect one another, then there will be chaos and corruption on the whole globe, hence we find the chaos and corruption on the globe today. It is a decree of Allah – we are totally disunited, we cannot see face to face yet we are born through one mother and one father.”
