Ways in which Allaah grants the Muslims victory over their enemies
(Taken from Majmoo al-Fatwa of Sheikh ibn Baaz رحمه الله vol. 7)
The theme of the lecture, "Ways in which Allaah grants Muslims victory over their enemies," makes it clear that Allaah سُبحانه وتعالى provides means for victory and defeat. The believers should adopt and abide by the means of victory everywhere whether it is in the Masjid, at home or on the road, and when fighting the enemies. The believers should adhere to the Commands of Allaah, advise Allaah's Slaves for Allaah's sake and stay away from the sins that lead to defeat. It is a sin to neglect the material causes of victory, for they are indispensable as much as the religious ones. Neglecting any of these causes leads to disappointment, as Allaah سُبحانه وتعالى says:
يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا إِن تَنصُرُوا اللَّهَ يَنصُرْكُمْ وَيُثَبِّتْ أَقْدَامَكُمْ
"O you who believe! If you help (in the cause of) Allâh, He will help you, and make your foothold firm."
Allaah سُبحانه وتعالى says:

All creatures - mankind, Jinn (creatures created from fire), kings and laymen - are in need of Allaah and all are poor in relation to Allaah تعالى, for He is the Ever-Affluent, Ever-Praiseworthy. Thus, helping (in the cause of) Allaah عز وجل, is to support His Shari`ah, Religion, what He sent His Messenger down with and what He revealed in His Ever-Glorious Book. When Muslims support Allaah's Religion and His Awliya' (pious people). Allaah will support them against their enemies and grant them the good outcome.
فَاصْبِرْ إِنَّ الْعَاقِبَةَ لِلْمُتَّقِينَ
"So be patient. Surely, the (good) end is for Al-Muttaqûn (the pious)."
