Asim Latić, a restaurant owner in Velika Kladuša, a Bosnian border town with Croatia, said: “In February I saw a man standing in the street in the snow. I asked if he was hungry, and he said he didn’t have any money.
“I said it didn’t matter and fed him. That guy texted his friends and the next day they came. More people came, and I had to close the restaurant. Since then, we’ve given out 68,000 meals.”
It’s unfortunate that migrants nowadays are forced to flee the Muslim world for Europe when in the past the opposite occurred. Regimes in the Muslim world are to blame for this crisis. Their unwavering support for America, Russia and their allies has created this situation because they failed to stand up to injustice and implement Islam in the region.
The Islamic State is responsible for looking after the affairs of people due to the saying of the Prophet Muhammad ﷺ where he said:
فَالأَمِيرُ الَّذِي عَلَى النَّاسِ رَاعٍ عَلَيْهِمْ
“The Imam who (rules) over people is responsible for them.” (Sunan Abi Dawud 2928)
In the absence of the Islamic State Muslims such as Asim Latić and thousands of others are forced to take on this duty themselves, May Allah accept their efforts.
Abdullah ibn ‘Amr asked the Prophet Muhammad ﷺ: “Which Islam is the best?” He said, “To feed the hungry and to give salaam to those you know and those you don’t know.” (Agreed upon)
A future Islamic State implementing Islam will lead to safety and security in its lands, and the Islamic economic system which is based on distribution and circulation of wealth, will lead to a reduction in poverty and increase in living standards. This means no one will be forced to flee their homes out of fear and poverty.
