Ummah as one body sans borders‏

When our divine ideology is universal, then how come our borders be confined within lines drawn on map?? For the last 1300 years, during the Khilafat and various Sultan and empires under it, Muslims traveled freely across the Muslim world from China to Andulusia, without any passports or visas! It was enough that you are a Muslim, a brother of faith, that you could trade, marry, byu property and settle in any part of the Ummah! This was the real power of Islam and its brotherhood which flowed knowledge, wealth, trade, sciences and technology as well as culture, languages and traditions across the entire globe freely. With gold as currency, there were no issues of forex exchanges or currency conversions. Me were truly free!

Then came this system of Dajjal. After the destruction of Khilafat in 1921, lines were drawn on maps and Ummah was divided into small pieces of land, passports and visas were introduced, every land was given a fake paper currency and traveling of Muslims within the Ummah was blocked! That was our downfall !

Within the Ummah, this is our mission. To bring back the Ummah as one solid body, where states and nations are only administrative units but with same currency, no visas, no passports, no restrictions to travel, trades or marriages. This is the wisdom of this deen. This is what all the greats had advised us to protect jealously! This is your duty now to achieve! InshAllah, we will.
