God loves those who strive in His Way in ranks like well-built walls

God loves those who strive in His Way in ranks like well-built walls


God says in verse 103 of Surat al-‘Imran, “Hold fast to the rope of God all together,” (what does all together mean? All Muslims, the Muslims in the world. God does not discriminate between Hanafi and Sha’afi) “Hold fast…” What does hold fast mean? With all your might. “And do not separate” (that is to say, do not separate into sects, groups or communities).

Surat al-Anfal verse 46, “Do not quarrel among yourselves” (at the moment they are quarreling everywhere in the world. The most intense hostilities are taking place. They are murdering one another’s children. “Obey God and His Messenger and do not quarrel among yourselves” (That is now happening in the Islamic world, which is in conflict. They have all fallen out in a terrible way. God says if you do that, you will fall apart. And what does falling apart mean? Being divided when once you were united. They were fragmented, and then weakened. There was no falling apart in the time of the Prophet (pbuh). They were all united. There was one Islamic community and they were all together. There was no being cowed. They are all cowed now. Much of the Islamic world is cowed.) “And you will lose heart,” says God. They lost heart because they were not united. This is a miracle of the Qur’an. That verse has come about. “And be steadfast. God is with the steadfast.

Surat al-Anfal verse 73, “Those who are unbelievers are the friends and protectors of one another,” (they watch over and protect one another, they support one another. ) “If you do not do this,” if you are not united, if you do not watch over one another. For example, a child’s parents watch over and protect it very well. God is telling believers that they must watch over and protect one another. Muslims are under one another’s protection. “If you do not do this,” if you do not help one another and be friends and allies “there will be turmoil in the land and great corruption.” There is great turmoil and corruption in the Islamic world now. What God said has come about. Is there great corruption going on? Yes, there is. Is there turmoil? Yes, there is. The way that some people are oblivious is still more turmoil and corruption. They are unaffected. Look, reports of deaths come in from Syria every day. Women are being raped and murdered. Yet some people do not care at all.

Surat an-Nisa’ verse 75, “What reason could you have” (He warns against human beings’ cruel and tyrannizing aspects) “for not striving in the Way of God – for those men, women and children who are oppressed and say, ‘Our Lord, take us out of this city whose inhabitants are wrongdoers!’” (The Syrian people are currently being oppressed. The people there want to flee the country. They want to escape) “Give us a protector from You!” –a protector, an owner, a mahdi. (One. They wonder where the idea of the Mahdi has come. Where do you get the idea of a leader of all Muslims from, they wonder. God expresses this as a prayer on the part of believers, “Give us a protector from You! Give us a helper from You!’?” A protecting owner, owner of the time, a mahdi, a leader for Muslims, a helper. (Someone who will watch of and govern millions of Muslims. Almighty God emphasizes this several times. )

Men, women and children all say this. He says they have been left weak, God demands to know why they do not strive. This means that Muslims must demand ONE lord, ONE guide and ONE leader. Men, women and children must all beseech God for this.

Surat ash-Shura verse 39, “those who, when they are wronged, defend themselves.” (when they are subjected to aggression, when they are martyred or their homes are burned down). They establish Islamic Unity and all resist together. What do they resist? They try to put an end to the attacks on Muslims. The aim of unity is this; to put an end to the persecution of Muslims. Otherwise, God says, there will be strife and corruption and all kinds of things. He says you will lose your strength.

Surat as-Saff, “God loves those who strive in His Way in ranks like well-built walls.” In a single block, mortared together with cement. This verse has been sent down specially. God speaks of them being like a wall, a single building. You enter a building and you ask what it is. It represents Muslims. A single block or wall. There are no other smaller walls nest to it. God speaks in terms of a single wall.
