“We should be proud that our Prophet came into the world with the message of Islam to change it for the better and not for the worse, or to keep things as they are.
Look at the Afghans, during the time of the Soviet invasion. They were among the poorest Muslims in the world, yet they were sustained by their faith in ALLAH, and ALLAH alone. The Afghans did not have sophisticated weapons like the Soviets did, but with their DEEN they defeated a superpower. As long as Muslims were confident they could not be defeated, but now we are just puppets.” [Sheikh Abu Bakar Bashir (May Allah (swt) hasten his release from the Indonesian dungeon also may Allah (swt) destroy the Kafir Taghoot government of Indonesia, ameen)
