Problems in the Middle East

Q: Here in our small Muslim community in U.K. we hear a lot of things happening in the Middle East Syria etc. from people amongst us who went there. Horrible things are being done to our Muslim brothers and sisters there and it is really pitiable. So when does it becomes compulsory upon us to answer the call of these oppressed Muslim brothers and sisters? Will we be sinners if we don’t answer their call?

A: All conditions come from Allah Ta’ala. If we reform ourselves and reform the enviroment around us, Allah Ta’ala will bring about favourable conditions in the earth. We should also make dua for the Muslim ummah at large throughout the world.
