The Muslim Ummah has a rich history of producing prolific scholars, scientists, and intellectuals who shared their knowledge and wisdom with the world. They did not limit themselves to their own nation but provided opportunities for other nations to benefit from their teachings. Islamic universities were once the center of learning and attracted students from all over the world, including non-Muslims who went on to enlighten the West with new scientific discoveries.
However, the current state of education in the Muslim Ummah is far behind what it used to be. Many Muslims have shied away from learning various sciences and arts, believing they are too worldly and irrelevant to their faith. This has led to a decline in education and contributed to the backwardness of the Muslim Ummah.
“We have counted the legacy we received from our ancestors; the sky has hit us on earth with a meteor.” This verse reflects the loss of the Muslim Ummah’s glory and how they have been hit with a great calamity. The metaphor of the meteor signifies the destruction of their once-great civilization and the current state of humiliation and despair that plagues the Muslim Ummah.
The indifference of the Muslim Ummah to prioritize tertiary issues over real ones is another reason for their lag in progress for example Muslims are still deciding and fighting over a tertiary issue that whether to tie hands in namaz, should we say ameen loudly or not, etc.
The world is rapidly moving forward, but unfortunately, the Muslim Ummah has fallen behind in this race. They need to exert their identity and remove despair from their hearts. The infidels who once learned from Muslim universities are now plotting against Muslims and trying to tarnish the name of Islam. Muslims must be prepared to defend Islam and work courageously to develop a revolutionary mindset, as it is necessary for revolution.
In conclusion, the Muslim Ummah must recognize the value of education in all fields and work towards achieving progress and prosperity. They must prioritize real issues and work together to overcome the challenges that face them. With determination, perseverance, and a revolutionary mindset, the Muslim Ummah can once again achieve greatness and become a powerful force in the world.
