Apart from the parasitical ruling classes, few would disagree that Muslim societies are in need of drastic change. The gross inequalities must be eradicated. The noble Qur’an and the Prophetic Sunnah and Seerah offer us the process of change.
The year 2020 will go down in history as one of the worst nightmares for most people. Will the year 2021 be any different? We look at some possible developments.
Even a cursory glance at the Muslim world would show that it is beset with many problems. From mass poverty amid pockets of obscene affluence to chaotic traffic and gross mismanagement coupled with widespread corruption characterize most Muslim societies.
People are aware of US wars against Muslim countries, many of them ruined beyond repair. There is another, equally insidious war the US is waging against Muslims living in the West through the policy of no fly and watch lists.

One of the “disorders” that the Arab world (and other parts of the Muslim world, unfortunately) has been afflicted with is the Sunni vs. Shi’a pathology; and needless to say, those advocates of U.S. global supremacy are exploiting this shameful and divisive disorder for all that it’s worth, at the expense of the Muslim Ummah.1
All over the Muslim world, and in the Arab countries in particular, there now lives a class of Western expatriates, usually American, who live like an imperial elite and whose true role is often unclear.
Since its establishment in 1979, the Islamic Revolution has always been seen by Muslim dictators, their media and their western masters as a source of threat - not through force of arms but by example.
Greece not only persecutes its own Muslims but also plays a conspicuous role in the programme of obliteration directed at the presence of Islam in the Balkans.
Muslims everywhere are impatient for change. Impatience itself is not bad. It shows that Muslims are alert and anxious to see change in their societies. This springs from the fact that they are dissatisfied with the status quo. This is also a positive sign.
