The Manhaj of Struggle

Today there are so many Islamic organization which was in their movement they were using variety of manhaj. Manhaj means a clear path within the struggle, or a way or a strategy in the struggle. There is an Islamic organization which has manhaj of violence as what had been done by Taliban in Afghanistan, or there is also Islamic organization which has manhaj in the form of social actions, political movements or even there is also which use spiritual and moral as their manhaj.

Upon this manhaj movements there is something which was mostly done wrongly and very seldom being understood by most of moslem people. Most of us now thought that every manhaj must be based on a physical actions and efforts of men. So, then almost all of the Islamic organization have manhaj in the form of physical movements.

While as for several important things, there are some main things which fully under responsibility and task of Allah swt Himself. Some of those things are like giving the sovereignty, to liven up or to deaden and to bestow sustenance.

Nowadays there are many of Islamic organization which use only physical actions as their manhaj to seize or build the power. Such as by committing a war, spreading terror, rallying political power, rallying social actions, rallying huge demo strike, that all of those actions are meant to seize the power. Those things are wrong, it would become in vain, because power is part of the main things of Allah swt responsibility.

قُلِ اللَّهُمَّ مَالِكَ الْمُلْكِ تُؤْتِي الْمُلْكَ مَنْ تَشَاءُ وَتَنْزِعُ الْمُلْكَ مِمَّنْ تَشَاءُ وَتُعِزُّ مَنْ تَشَاءُ وَتُذِلُّ مَنْ تَشَاءُ ۖ
بِيَدِكَ الْخَيْرُ ۖ إِنَّكَ عَلَىٰ كُلِّ شَيْءٍ قَدِيرٌ

“Say, "O Allah, Owner of Sovereignty, You give sovereignty to whom You will and You take sovereignty away from whom You will. You honor whom You will and You humble whom You will. In Your hand is [all] good. Indeed, You are over all things competent.” (QS 3:26)

In the manhaj of struggle which had been taught by our guru, as for this power then the correct manhaj is by praying it to Allah swt, so not by committing violence or merely a physical movements. That was also the manhaj whcih had been done by previous prophets and messengers and also the wali of Allah. There was none of them had ever taking part of physical actions, or committing a war or rallying big demo strike in order to seize the power.

The Prophets and Messengers and also the Wali of Allah swt, they struggle by doing so much dhikr and praying to Allah swt. So, then history had proven that with that kind of manhaj they were really got power.

Doing dhikr in getting closer to Allah swt and praying for His help are far better and stronger than any physical actions and efforts. There is no power and effort except from and by Allah swt. Indeed, Allah swt is over all things competent. (AK/ST)
