Hadhrat Ji Maulana Inaamul Hasan Kandhalwi Sahab (r.a.) said, “It is erroneous to think that the acquisition of authority and wealth will cause Islam to prosper. In fact, political authority and wealth is causing much harm to Islam. Today’s political leaders are no longer the representatives of Hadhrat Abu Bakr (r.a.a.) and Umar (r.a.a.). They represent Qaisar, Kisra, Shaddad and Namrud. There remains no hope in them for the revival of Islam. The condition of Islam under their rule has caused the heart to cry out, “How will Allah Azza Wa Jal revive this dead corpse.” (Surah Baqarah)
Further, in some discourse, he said: “Honour and disgrace is not in the planning of Russia and America, but in the control of Allah Azza Wa Jal. Allah Ta’ala has blessed honour and disgrace on certain principles. Whichever individual or nation or family adheres to the principles of success, Allah Ta’ala will make him successful. On the other hand, whoever chooses the actions of failure, Allah Ta’ala will destroy him.”
The following words reveal the Yaqeen of Hadhrat Ji (r.a.) on Amal: “Allah Azza Wa Jal has made the Amal produced by Sayyidina Rasulullah (s.a.w.) more powerful than the atom bomb. Each and every Amal of his is a means of causing a complete change in the universe. (Remember) Salatul Istisqa is a means of changing the conditions (of drought) on earth.”

May Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala give us the tawfiq to build our Yaqeen on these things Hadhrat Ji (r.a.) nicely pointed out.
