Islam, in fact, is the true religion that is meant by Allah to lead humanity to peace, prosperity, and welfare. It has real solutions for all our crises, for it is a Divine system that derives its rules and teachings from Allah, the Creator of man and the universe. By the same token, man will continue failing to find real solutions to his problems unless in His Creator’s message, namely Islam.

The need for the message of Muhammad (peace be upon him) is everlasting. The ever-existing misguidance remains – though darker and increasingly widespread. Idol worshipers are increasing and the People of the Book are getting further from their scriptures to the extent of totally forgetting them. Religion is not a faked relationship between a man and God. Religion is useless if it does not prevent evil, encourage morals, and destroy the desires of arrogance and oppression.

So the wisdom behind the message of Muhammad (peace be upon him) is becoming clearer in this age. Although human intelligence is excelling, it is totally submitting to the most evil and uncontrolled of desires. The People of the Book are the superpowers but have totally kept away from the teachings of Moses, Jesus, and Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon them all). Allah revealed the wisdom behind the message of Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) saying: By Allah, We indeed sent (Messengers) to the nations before you (O Muhammad, peace be upon him), but Shaitan (Satan) made their deeds fair-seeming to them. So he (Satan) is their Wali (helper) today ( i.e. in this world), and theirs will be a painful torment. And We have not sent down the Book (the Qur an) to you (O Muhammad, peace be upon him) except that you may explain clearly unto them those things in which they differ, and (as) a guidance and a mercy for a folk who believe. (An-Nahl, 16:63-64).

The Western countries have totally forgotten God and the Hereafter and the people have wasted their entire lives neglecting prayer and only following their lusts. I was furious when I read an interview held with the wife of the former French President, François Mitterrand. This interview shows how far those people are far away from any heavenly teachings. She was asked: Did you and Mitterrand have a son before marriage? She answered: Do not bother finding out the truth regarding this issue. A thorough investigation might reveal as many as 25,000 similar cases.

What is this? Isn’t there any voice for religion in those people’s minds? Is the world so dark to the extent of being void of any fear of God? It seems that the religion that seeks to stop fornication is only known to Muslims.

Meanwhile, the very advanced West is holding international conferences to influence us to agree to repugnant lifestyles. How come they requested us in Cairo and Beijing (UN conferences on population) to accept same-sex marriages and common-law relationships? Who among the Prophets of Allah agreed to these grave sins or even kept silent in regard to them?

We, Muslims, the followers of Muhammad’s teachings, are asking humanity to reflect upon these teachings, instead of fighting them.
