Thus, the 'Ulema's lack of preaching of Jihad is one of the direct causes of the subjugation of the Ummah, just like it is today. Had America not had a base in Saudi Arabia, the invasion of Iraq would've been difficult. For every base that America builds on Muslim lands, the Ummah becomes more and more subservient and less and less Islamic.
Do you think the mujahideen today are using miswaks to attack the Oppressors or are they using weapons?
May Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) make us both among them. Ameen.
