by Shaykh Abdur-Rahmaan As-Sudays

All praise is due to Allaah, Lord of all the worlds. May peace and blessings of Allaah be upon the Messenger, his household and companions.

Dear brethren! The judicious and understanding nation is the one that knows how to derive lessons from its afflictions and trials. Events that affected our Ummah lately should not be allowed to pass into oblivion without deriving lessons from them. One of the greatest lessons of these events is that the Muslims are in dire need of a sincere return to Allaah. They must bear it in minds with all conviction that rotation of power among nations is natural and that the victory of this Ummah depends absolutely on the Muslims' help for the cause of their religion and their strict adherence to the Book of Allaah and the Sunnah of His Messenger.

Another matter that needs mentioning is that the big challenges that the Ummah is facing should create a developing awareness among the Muslims and be a guide light for the their thinkers. Muslim leaders and intellectuals should make a good use of charity events to amend our points of weakness from which the enemies attack us. Energies of the youth should be employed in serious programmes that can help the cause of Islaam, defend its foundation, protect its interests and safeguard its security and valuables. This is because, the mask has fallen off the face of falsehood and the realities of fake slogans of the hypocrites and defeatists have been exposed.

Now is the time for the Ummah to review its stands and re-examine its programmes and methodologies in a way that will be suitable to the modern age. It should not forget that its faith of Islaamic Monotheism and its principles are the major pillar in which the remedies of its crises rest.

Fellow Muslims! Has the Ummah realized what is being planned for it? When you Muslims hold fast unto the rope of Allaah, which is the Qur'aan, you will never be disunited and if you are united in this trial of yours, you will never go astray by the Will of Allaah. read more

"How long have you been driving without a tail light?" asked the policeman after pulling over a motorist. The driver jumped out, ran to the rear of his car, and gave a long, painful groan. He seemed so upset that the cop was moved to ease up on him a bit.

"Come on, now," he said, "you don't have to take it so hard. It isn't that serious."

"It isn't?" cried the motorist. "Then you know what happened to my boat and trailer?"
