Societies are in Need of Rectification
Societies, both Islamic and Non-Islamic, are in dire need of rectification. The Islamic society in particular is in need of it. This rectification is achieved by following the method used by the best of the Muslim nation, the one who is the beloved of Ar-Rahman and the purest from among His servants-our leader Muhammad Ibn Abdullah
It is a known fact that the essential principles of social rectification for both Islamic and non-Islamic societies are the steps that were implemented by the leader of the messengers, and last of the prophets; may he receive the most excellent peace and blessings from his Lord.
These steps were also instituted by his companions beginning with the Rightly Guided Caliphs: Abu Bakr As-Siddeeq, Umar Al-Farooq, Uthmaan Dhun-Nurain and Ali Al-Murtada Abul Hassan as well as the other companions that were with them. May Allah be pleased with them all and make us from those who follow them in goodness.
It is also a well-known fact that our Prophet initially implemented these principles in Makkah and then later in Al-Madinah. The renowned imam, Maalik ibn Anas, who was the Imam of the people of Dar Al Hijirah of his era, and well known scholar of jurisprudence from the Four Imams said:
“Nothing will correct the latter part of this Ummah except that which brought it correction initially.”
The people of knowledge from Imam Maalik’s era, and those after that time, have unanimously acknowledged this statement which means; the principle which rectified the Ummah initially was adherence to the Book of Allah and the Sunnah of the noble Messenger. Therefore, this will be the determining factor in the rectification of this Ummah until the Last Day.
