Our welfare is not decided by who supports us and who is against us.
Our welfare is not decided by the “numbers”.
OUR WELFARE IS ONLY THROUGH ISLAAM;
THROUGH REAL OBEDIENCE TO ALLAAH;
THROUGH RETURNING BACK TO HIS BOOK &
`Umar رضي الله عنه said that the Prophet (ﷺ) said:
"By this Book (i.e. the Qur’aan), Allaah exalts some peoples and degrade others."
Our honor is in following Islaam. `Umar Ibn al-Khattaab رضي الله عنه set out for al-Shaam with Abu `Ubaydah bin al-Jarraah رضي الله عنه. On the way, they came upon a deep creek (which they needed to cross). So `Umar came down off his camel, took off his sandals and carried them on his shoulders. Then he took the reign of the camel and began plowing through the water. Abu `Ubaydah said: “O Ameer al-Mu’mineen! You are doing this - you took off your sandals and carry them on your shoulders while you cross the creek? I fear that the people of the village will think of you without honor.”
"Oh Abu `Ubaydah! Had someone other than you made such a statement, I would have made him an example for the Ummah of Muhammad صلى الله عليه وسلم (i.e. he would have punished him). Verily, we were a disgraceful people and Allaah honored us with Islaam, so if we seek honor from other than Islaam, then Allaah will humiliate us."
[Al-Haakim in his Al-Mustadrak (207) and said it is “Saheeh” as per the condition of al-Bukhaaree and Muslim, and al-Dhahabee agreed with him. Shaikh al-Albaanee also agreed with them in al-Saheehah (1/118)]
Our honor is in being sincere Muslims:
