110 Sura Of Victory: Is Not Far Off Today.

110:1 WHEN GOD'S SUCCOUR comes, and victory,
إِذَا جَاء نَصْرُ اللَّهِ وَالْفَتْحُ (110:1)

110:2 and thou seest people enter God's religion
in hosts,
وَرَأَيْتَ النَّاسَ يَدْخُلُونَ فِي دِينِ اللَّهِ أَفْوَاجًا (110:2)

110:3 extol thy Sustainer's limitless glory, and praise Him, and seek His forgiveness: for, behold, He is ever an acceptor of repentance.
فَسَبِّحْ بِحَمْدِ رَبِّكَ وَاسْتَغْفِرْهُ إِنَّهُ كَانَ تَوَّابًا (110:3)

Bloger comment:
Victory for Muslims is to see people enter Islam. Muslims in the first 12 years in Mecca where oppressed and persecuted. When they went to Medina they had three wars with the pagans who followed them to Medina and tried to demolish them. When Muhammad spread Islam he went back to Mecca with 10,000 Muslims as this Sura talk about.
They did not conquer it but opened it which mean they had the power to conquer if they wanted but they did not do that. The disbelievers were overwhelmed by 10,000 Muslims. They were afraid that Muhammad will retaliate from them. He said his famous saying "today is not the day of fight today is the day of mercy and I say to you like Joseph said to his brothers no consequences in you today".
Most of them willingly became good Muslims after that. This victory as well made many tribes of the Arab to consider Islam and to embrace Islam.
Victory of Islam counted not by defeat of enemies but by winning them to Islam. Good honest Muslims commonly traders who went in Asia they spread Islam by attracting non-Muslims to their moral values. Opening countries by war to Islam is only a response to the aggression against Islam. That is why Muslims follow the wisdom of their religion in how to spread Islam peacefully. With the great oppression and injustice that Muslims are suffering today it becomes even more compelling to spread Islam particularly in the west. We will find new allies to our case and will be able to win our freedom.
Muslims have to be smart and look for multiple solutions for their problems. The west convert to Islam, their oppressors leave the scene, march of democracies, peaceful revolutions.... We have to knock every door possible. To sit down and feel powerless and angry against every one will not change our status. Muslims at the time of Muhammad (PBUH)were proactive and changed the world. Our victory is to win people to Islam or at least to win them to our causes.
