I published this on my Islamic Articles blog and thought FHWS readers might enjoy it also…
The “World Is Changing” and video embedded within this post will make you so happy to be in the fold of Islam. The Muslim ummah is witnessing unprecedented hardship throughout the world. We are humiliated, scapegoated, shunned, abused and killed. One wonders how we can survive this calamity. But we will bi’idhnillah. So erase that frown of worry and revel in the glad tidings that no matter what is happening and what is going to happen, Islam will be number one. No…it IS number one and the Catholic church admits:
“For the first time in history, we are no longer at the top: Muslims have overtaken us,” Monsignor Vittorio Formenti said in an interview with the Vatican newspaper L’Osservatore Romano.” (Muslims “Overtake” Catholics, Become Largest Religion)
I know in my heart and see with my own eyes that the Muslim ummah is increasing every year. The annual performance of Hajj is one such visual example. To keep up with the mass exodus of pilgrims, the Saudi government has been in the process of expanding al-Masjid al-Haram (link will show pictures dated August 2013).
No doubt al-Masjid al-Haram will continue to be expanded in order to accommodate billions or even trillions of Muslims. I’m confident and optimistic that Muslims the world over will NEVER decrease because Allah has promised this and Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) prophesied it:
﴿هُوَ الَّذِي أَرْسَلَ رَسُولَهُ بِالْهُدَى وَدِينِ الْحَقِّ﴾
(It is He Who has sent His Messenger with guidance and the religion of truth.) `Guidance’ refers to the true narrations, beneficial faith and true religion that the Messenger came with. `religion of truth’ refers to the righteous, legal deeds that bring about benefit in this life and the Hereafter.
﴿لِيُظْهِرَهُ عَلَى الدِّينِ كُلِّهِ﴾
(to make it (Islam) superior over all religions) It is recorded in the Sahih that the Messenger of Allah said,
«إِنَّ اللهَ زَوَى لِي الْأَرْضَ مَشَارِقَهَا وَمَغَارِبَهَا، وَسَيَبْلُغُ مُلْكُ أُمَّتِي مَا زُوِيَ لِييِمنْهَا»
(Allah made the eastern and western parts of the earth draw near for me ﴿to see﴾, and the rule of my Ummah will extend as far as I saw.) Imam Ahmad recorded from Tamim Ad-Dari that he said, “I heard the Messenger of Allah saying,
«لَيَبْلُغَنَّ هَذَا الْأَمْرُ مَا بَلَغَ اللَّيْلُ وَالنَّهَارُ، وَلَا يَتْرُكُ اللهُ بَيْتَ مَدَرٍ وَلَا وَبَرٍ إِلَّا أَدْخَلَهُ هَذَا الدِّينَ، يُعِزُّ عَزِيزًا وَيُذِلُّ ذَلِيلًا، عِزًّا يُعِزُّ اللهُ بِهِ الْإِسْلَامَ وَذُلًّا يُذِلُّ اللهُ بِهِ الْكُفْر»
(This matter (Islam) will keep spreading as far as the night and day reach, until Allah will not leave a house made of mud or hair, but will make this religion enter it, while bringing might to a mighty person (a Muslim) and humiliation to a disgraced person (who rejects Islam). Might with which Allah elevates Islam (and its people) and disgrace with which Allah humiliates disbelief (and its people).) Tamim Ad-Dari ﴿who was a Christian before Islam﴾ used to say, “I have come to know the meaning of this Hadith in my own people. Those who became Muslims among them acquired goodness, honor and might. Disgrace, humiliation and Jizyah befell those who remained disbelievers.” (Tafsir Ibn Kathir: Islam is the Religion That will dominate over all Other Religions, Surah Tawbah 9:33)
Allahu akbar! Now watch the videos and smile
Once you’re done with that, you may like to watch RT News reporting that “Christianity loses ground in UK, as Islam enjoys rapid rise” (4:08 minute video).
