Strength of the Ummah
The Ummah’s strength does not lie in money, natural resources or numbers – we have all of these in abundance today, whereas the ummah at the time of the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم) and his companions (رضي الله عنهم) had very little of any of them. The source of the ummah’s strength lies in Islam and in its adherence to the way of the Qur’an and Sunnah.
Imam Malik Said:
لا يصلح آخر هذه الأمة إلا بما صلح به أولها
The latter part of this Ummah will not be rectified except by that which rectified its earlier part.
