Rectification And Revival Of Muslim World

  • M azram

Abstract

The present doldrums position and state of decadence, internal differences, external aggression (geographical and ideological), lack of self-confidence and dependence, illiteracy, political instability, economic disaster, lack of knowledge and wisdom, back benchers in science and technology, education, medicine, trade and business, banking system and defensive incapability of Muslim Ummah prompted me to write this article.  Although most of the Muslim nations got their independence because of their dedicated struggle and historic events and incidents but the old masters remained active for a remote control over the Muslim Ummah.  Their intellectuals and scholars, individually as well as collectively, have propagated and advised their leadership, the tactics and approaches by which Muslim Ummah can again be enslaved.  Writings of S.P. Huntington and F. Fukuyama are clear examples.  They are actively gearing the international institutions so cleverly that Muslim Ummah does not even realize their ill motives and objectives.  They brought their leadership in a confronting position with Muslim Ummah and hence threatening the world peace.  This situation prompted us to look at our principal sources of inspiration, which are, the Qur’an, Sunnah of the Prophet (SAW), and examples of the “enlightened Caliphs” and see if we could work out a seminal guidelines for our rectification  and revival.  We have gathered together some of these impressions; these are all tentative, nothing final about them, but these are here nonetheless.

ABSTRAK: Kehadiran situasi kebelungguan dan  keruntuhan, perbezaan dalaman, pencerobohan luar (geografi dan ideologi), kurang keyakinan diri dan pergantungan, buta huruf, ketidakstabilan politik, bencana ekonomi, kekurangan ilmu dan hikmah, ketinggalan dalam sains dan teknologi, pendidikan, perubatan, perdagangan dan perniagaan, sistem perbankan dan ketidakupayaan pertahanan umat Islam mendorong saya untuk menulis artikel ini. Walaupun kebanyakan negara-negara Islam mendapat kemerdekaan mereka kerana perjuangan mereka yang berdedikasi dan peristiwa dan kejadian yang bersejarah tetapi sejarah orang lama yang kekal aktif untuk mengawal kedudukan umat Islam. Keintelektuallan mereka, secara individu dan secara berkumpulan, telah dikembangkan melalui nasihat kepimpinan mereka, taktik dan pendekatan yang Muslim Ummah sekali lagi boleh diperhambakan. Karya SP Huntington dan F. Fukuyama adalah contoh yang jelas. Mereka secara aktif menggerakkan institusi antarabangsa sehingga umat Islam tidak menyedari motif tersirat dan objektif mereka. Mereka telah membawa kepimpinan mereka dalam kedudukan yang dihadapi dengan umat Islam dan dengan itu mengancam keamanan dunia. Keadaan ini mendorong kita untuk melihat sumber-sumber inspirasi utama, iaitu al-Quran, Sunnah Nabi (SAW), dan contoh-contoh "Khalifah pencerahan" dan lihat jika kita boleh merumuskan satu garis panduan pembetulan dan pemulihan. Kami telah berkumpul bersama untuk mengawal perasaan, ini semua tentatif, walau bagaimanapun tiada apa-apa jua yang muktamad tentang mereka.
