The Islamic Ummah was her own master, the source of her own decisions and holding the reigns of her own power, where none had authority over her. She was the leading nation in the world, dominating the international situation and drawing world politics for nearly thirteen centuries.
Today, after the sunlight of the Khilafah has disappeared from sight, the Islamic Ummah has become the spoils of war for the greedy Kuffar. Her decision making became in their hands, her policies are subservient to them, her economy tied to them, her weapons dependent on them, her sovereignty under their feet and her resources booty for them. She accepts all of this even though Allah (swt) has forbidden it to her. He (swt) said: "And never will Allah grant to the disbelievers a way over the believers." [TMQ 4:141]
