The biggest crisis Muslims of today face is not just their external enemies. And the list of those external enemies is a long and formidable one.
The biggest crisis in the life of Muslims today -- whether it is individual Muslims or the Ummah (Nation of Islam or the Islamic People) as a whole -- is an internal one. And it is Muslim character.
Call it "Moral Character" if you wish. But by "Moral Character" I do not mean all those empty cliches Muslims often throw around -- whatever they are.
I simply mean the ability of the Muslim People to speak the truth; to stick to the truth; and live by the truth.
Here, given below, is the Qur'an on the subject.
And, Subhanallah, how clear and forceful is the Qur'an on this subject -- as it is on every other subject that it addresses!
So, here is that most amazing Aayat, among all the other most amazing Aayats of the Qur'an:
Yaa Ayyuhalladheena Aamanoo,
Qoolu Qawulan Sadeeda,
Yuslih Lakum A'amaalakum,
Wa Yaghfir Lakum Dhunoobakum!
And here is my broad paraphrase of this Aayat Karimah:
If you truly fear Allah,
Speak the Truth,
Live by Truth,
And make Truth the hallmark of your life,
And the Guiding Light of all your affairs.
If you do,
God Almighty will then
Solve all your problems in This World,
And all your problems in the Next World.
