Benefit: Rectification of the Ummah Lies in Returning to Allāh's Sharīʿah and the Scholars

In the Name of Allāh, the Ever Merciful, the Bestower of Mercy

The Esteemed Shaykh, al-ʿAllāmah, ʿAbd al-ʿAzīz ibn Bāz, raḥimahullāh said:


"The most important matter in this regard is to execute the Shar'i (Islamic) Ḥudūd (ordained punishments for violating Allāh’s Law), resort to the judgment of Shariʿah (Islamic law) in everything, refuse the man-made laws that go against the laws of Allāh and oblige all people to adhere to the judgment of Shariʿah.

Muslim scholars should teach people the religion of Islām and spread Islamic awareness among Muslims and teach them the moral of exhorting one another to truth and patience in this. They should also enjoin good and forbid evil. They should encourage Muslim rulers to adhere to these desirable principles. Moreover, scholars should occupy themselves with fighting the evil-oriented destructive principles such as communism, fanaticism, nationalism, and all doctrines which contraḍīct the Shariʿah.

Thus, Allāh will rectify the status of Muslims and bring back their preceding lost glory. If they really reform themselves, Allāh will make them victorious over their enemy and establish them in the land as He, the Most Truthful One, says, "...and (as for) the believers, it was incumbent upon Us to help (them)." He (Glorified be He) says, "Allāh has promised those among you who believe and do righteous good deeds, that He will certainly grant succession to (the present rulers) in the land, as He granted it to those before them, and that He will grant them the authority to practise their religion which He has chosen for them (i.e. Islām). And He will surely give them in exchange a safe security after their fear (provided) they (believers) worship Me (Allāh) and do not associate anything (in worship) with Me. But whoever disbelieves after this, they are the Fasiqūn (rebellious, disobedient to Allāh)". He (Glorified be He) also says, "Verily, We will indeed make victorious Our Messengers and those who believe (in the Oneness of Allāh - Islamic Monotheism) in this world’s life and on the Day when the witnesses will stand forth, (i.e. Day of Resurrection) - The Day when their excuses will be of no profit to Ẓālimūn (polytheists, wrong-doers and disbelievers in the Oneness of Allāh). Theirs will be the curse, and theirs will be the evil abode (i.e. painful torment in Hell-fire)."

We ask Allāh to guide the Muslim rulers and the people; grant them the comprehension of the religion, unite them by piety and guide them all to His Right Path. We hope that Allāh will make them a means to the victory of truth and the defeat of falsehood. We invoke Him to help them cooperate with one another in righteousness and piety. May Allāh’s Peace and Blessings be upon His servant, Messenger, and the chosen one amongst all people, our Prophet and leader, Muḥammad ibn ʿAbdullāh. May Allāh’s Peace and Blessings be upon the Household of the Prophet, his Companions, and those who followed the guidance with which he was sent." (Majmūʿ al-Fatāwá́ Ibn Bāz: 1/71)
