I address my community and say that it is good deeds which are needed. Indeed, it is good deeds that are worthy of being presented before God Almighty. God Almighty Himself states:
اِلَیۡہِ یَصۡعَدُ الۡکَلِمُ الطَّیِّبُ
“Unto Him ascend good words.”
At the present time, our pens are like the swords of the Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings of Allah be upon him. However, victory and support is received by those who are righteous. Allah the Exalted has promised the following:
کَانَ حَقًّا عَلَیْنَا نَصْرُ الْمُؤْمِنِیْنَ
This means, “It is our responsibility to help the believers.”
He also states:
لَنۡ یَّجۡعَلَ اللہُ لِلۡکٰفِرِیۡنَ عَلَی الۡمُؤۡمِنِیۡنَ سَبِیۡلًا
Meaning, “Allah does not grant the disbelievers a way to prevail against the believers.”
So remember that your victory is tied to righteousness. The Arabs were nothing more than orators, speakers and poets. Yet, when they adopted righteousness, God Almighty sent down His angels to support them. If a person studies history, they will come to know that all of the victories that were attained by the noble Companions, may Allah be pleased with them all, were not the result of human strength or effort.
In fact, by the time of Hazrat Uthman, may Allah be pleased with him, within a period of 20 years, the Muslim empire had become worldwide. Now someone tell us, is this within the power of man? This is why Allah the Exalted has repeatedly stated:
اِنَّ اللهَ مَعَ الَّذِیۡنَ اتَّقَوۡا وَّ الَّذِیۡنَ ہُمۡ مُّحۡسِنُوۡنَ
“Verily, Allah is with those who are righteous and those who do good.”
Allah the Exalted is with those who are righteous, but righteousness is not the only element which attracts the love of God; such people must be among those who do good.
