Disunity among ummah will lead to fall of muslims", says Mufti FT Malaysia. Like 5th August, when India snatched the independent status of Kashmiri Muslims by revoking the articles 370 and 35 A of the constitution. Similarly, 13 August is another blot on the entire Muslim ummah because the heterogeneous UAE has commenced the peace deal with Israel at the risk of Palestine liberation. The USA is a watchdog in this deal. It is a matter of concern for all muslim ummah because the concept of one ummah is fading every day. There is no pain felt by one muslim state when the non-muslim state is
practicing the maltreatment on another muslim state. The country is superseding the ummah concept for the sake of economic, social, and political development. The peace deal by UAE and Israel is a not welcome step by true living muslim in this ephemeral world. The cries and grievances of innocent Palestinian muslims are still echoing in our ears. Every day there is causality in Palestine occupied. The territory is ravished inhumanly by Israel belligerent soldiers. The illegal occupation of the Gaza strip and Golan heights by Israel is not yet forgotten. The illegal siege in Baitul Moqodus, by Israel Zionist Jews, is
very heart-wrenching. The holy places of muslims are barred from worshiping. But, on contrary here is also muslim state UAE who initiated a peace deal with Israel the zionist at the jeopardy of Palestine's cause. This kind of deal had been done by Egypt and Gordon a couple of decades ago. The UAE has become the first Gulf Arab country to reach a deal on normalizing relations with Israel, capping years of discreet contacts between the two countries in commerce and technology. The so-called ‘Abraham Agreement’ announced by US President Donald Trump on Aug 13 secures an Israeli commitment to halt
further annexation of Palestinian lands in the occupied West Bank. The mixed reaction is seen on this piece deal of UAE and Israel by the anti and pro-Israel. "While betraying the Palestinian cause to serve its narrow interests, the UAE is trying to present this as a kind of act of self-sacrifice for Palestine. President Mahmoud Abbas called the agreement an "aggression" against the Palestinian people and a betrayal of their cause." Hitherto, Egypt and Jordan were the only two Arab countries that gave full
recognition to Israel. In July 1978, at the summer presidential retreat of Camp David, Maryland, secret deliberations between then Egyptian President Anwar Sadaat and Israeli Prime Minister Menachem Begin lasting over 13 days led to the signing of a peace accord between Egypt and Israel, presided over by US President Jimmy Carter. Salient features of the Camp David accord was that Israel would return the occupied Egyptian territory of the Sinai Peninsula to Egypt in return for the total recognition by Egypt of Israel and the establishment of full diplomatic relations between Egypt and the Jewish state.
This is an indicator that Muslims have lost the sense to feel the pain of another Muslim country. Similarly, there is Kashmir which is consistently illegally occupied by India who is emerging the concept of Hindutva. The Muslims are violated mercilessly around the world and particularly in the region of the Middle East. The debris of such bloodshed is seen in illegal Indian occupied Kashmir IIOK, the open havoc in Syria by the USA, Russia, etc, and repatriation of Rohingya Muslims by Judaism, the ousted people of Afghanistan and Iraq are the epitome. The Muslims around the world are declining socio- politically and geo-economically because they have become disintegrated from the ideology of one
ummah. It is heartening to say that the examples seen in the near past are very gloom for the Muslim ummah. Unite and tie the fellow Muslims in the time of juncture otherwise, the Muslims shall lag behind in the world helplessly. The Holy Prophet (saw) said:" There will come a time for my Ummah when their rulers will be cruel, their scholars will be greedy and have little piety, their worshippers (will act) hypocritically, their merchants will commit usury and conceal the defects of their buyings and sellings and their women will be busy with the ornaments of the world. Hence, at this time, the most vicious of them will dominate over them and their good-doers will invocate but they will not be answered.
