Lahore, June 01, 2018 (PPI-OT): Deputy Chief of the Jamaat e Islami, Hafiz Muhammad Idrees, has said that if the Muslim rulers of today learnt a lesson from the battle of Badr and created the same environment, they would not be cowed down by the US and other enemy forces. He was addressing a big Friday congregation at Mansoora mosque.
Hafiz Muhammad Idrees said that the battle of Badr was the first war between Islam and Kufr which taught the coming generations that victory did to depend on the strength of the army and arms and ammunition. On the other hand, victory came through an unflinching faith in Allah Almighty as Allah could make a few hundred men of firm faith victorious over a host of thousands.
He said that in the battle of Badr, the Muslim army comprising only of 313 faithful who were poorly armed, had defeated more than one thousand infidels who were fully armed. This gave the lesson to the coming generations that victory would come only to the forces of truth and righteousness, and the forces of falsehood no matter how strong, would be fated to meet a humiliating defeat.
The JI deputy chief said that at present, there were around 1.7 billion Muslims in the world at present and they had abundant mineral resources. Despite that, they did not enjoy any respect or position in the world and the Muslims blood was being shed in every part of the world. Kashmir and Palestine were under enemy occupation while India and Israel had full US patronage. Due to that, there was unrest and disappointment all around. However, he said, if the Muslims repented and sought forgiveness from Allah, the situation could change in no time.
