Are we unable to be like China, the communist country which had no modern or technological means but now they compete America and Europe on their own ground. If we complain of poverty, there weren't a country poorer than China, where are they now? They used their minds, developed themselves and worked for their country, but we no longer have sincerity for our country, our religion or our homeland, we are only sincere to our pockets. The words of our prophet (May the blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) became identical to us. This is what I thought when I saw those who are going into Mecca and Medina and those who are around them, I say: The messenger of Allah was right, they are:
"As rubbish of dead leaves floating on a stream."
Huge numbers, but among them those who came to beg and others who came only to eat and drink, is this Islam and belief? Is this the worship? Then all these conceptions must be entirely changed, because we are in bad need for right fiducial conceptions change the condition of Islamic nation. We must change the conceptions for this nation to rise, we shouldn't offer excuses and ascribe failure to leaders, rulers, America or others and forget ourselves, a wise man said:
"We criticize our age, while the fault is in us and our age has no defect but us."
The fault is in us, because although our ancestors hadn't any of these equipments, information or these developed means, they introduced to the world inventions which were the basic of original inventions upon which European civilization relied.
- It was narrated that Thawban said: The messenger of Allah (May the blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) said: "Nations will soon surround and control you, as hungry people who are going to eat. The followers asked: We are few then? The prophet said: No, you are so many, but as rubbish of dead leaves floating on a stream and God will take out your dignity from the hearts of your enemies and throw weakness in your hearts. They said: O messenger of Allah, what is weakness? He said: Loving this life only and hating death."
