Why did the nation collapse after the death of the Prophet? (2-2)
The holy Qur’an is the book that Allah Almighty ordered the noble Messenger to convey to all people. This is confirmed in the words of the Almighty:
“ Ask O Muhammad those who doubt your mission: «What documentary evidence has more weight to support the truth of my mission than the attestation by Allah Himself!» «He is the witness of my actions and of your actions». «This Quran has been inspired to me to guide you into all truth and to warn you and warn all those whom it shall reach against counting Allah as being plural». «Do you people really bear witness to the plurality of Allah!» «I Just will not accord with this». Say to them: «Indeed He is only One Ilah, and I am absolutely innocent of your ills, and above all of your notion of incorporating with Him other deities».” (Al An’am: 19)
This verse has determined the responsibility of the Prophet, peace be upon him, and defined his job; which is to be bound to report the message of Allah Almighty contained in the Holy Quran in his verses. Therefore, the task of the Prophet has been confined to recalling the holy Qur’an and to explain the purpose of Allah Almighty to his creation. If the task of the Prophet was specified by Allah Almighty to report the message to creation, from where did the originators of the narrations come and made up tales and attributed them to Allah and the Prophet? Those originators of the tales kidnapped the message with their false sayings and lies. They managed to deafening the ears, blinding the eyes and absenting the minds of those who accepted their call and believed in it. They spread their fabrications and lies seeking to insult the Holy Qur’an and the Prophet?!
These false tales spread in the Islamic community when the Quran was removed as a reference to the legal and social legislation that controls and organizes the relationships between people. The holy Qur’an is the light of Allah that enlightens ways of people in life and spreads peace. Muslims retreated in the various life aspects. Moreover, they declined their thinking in research and creativity. The Muslims ignored the potentials that Allah Almighty gave them such as wealth and riches. This wreath should have been used to achieve and accomplish new inventions, excellence, production and contribution to the advancement of human civilization in all fields. The faith of Islam considers research in these fields as one of the elements of worship and obedience to Allah Almighty. Allah ordered Muslims to think and consider His creation to employ the results achieved through scientific research to benefit humanity.
Today, we see Muslims receiving the surpluses of what the markets of the west countries give them. Muslims pay their wealth for these products. Muslims withdrew from the movement of civilized development when they disobeyed the commands of Allah Almighty to think and carry out research. They lost what Allah Almighty gave them of wealth and riches and satisfied themselves with the tales that paralyzed their thinking. Muslims are busy with fighting amongst themselves while other nations are working diligently in the development of science and the development of their homelands to achieve the well-being of their people, and we are satisfied with blood that covers our homeland. Our homeland is dominated with ugliness, darkness and backwardness, when we abandoned the approach of the message of science, faith, mercy, justice and peace, and replaced these values with the calls to kill, terrorize, injustice and tyranny.
