Causes of Downfall


Assalam-u-alaikum,
What are causes which led to the downfall of Muslims?
How should Muslims salvage their lost glory and prestige?

In a nutshell two causes have contributed to this downfall:

1. Severing ties with the Qura'n
2. Having no standing in the fields of science and technoology

Regaining lost glory would depend on overcoming the above two obstacles

Assalam-u-alaikum,
God has guided us in two ways :

a) trhough nature
b) through his messangers and Holy Books in matters in which chances of doing wrong by human beings are very high.

If a person does not take guidance from his nature then i guess his chances of taking guidance from Quran are very very less.

So I think that not taking guidance from nature (which although is not complete but covers most or much of the part) is also a main reason of downfalls of muslims which must be highlighted.

Gradually the only role left for the Quran was that it was read without being understood or understood without being read

Approaching the Holy Qur'an with a fixed mindset. That you already have made up your mind about an issue before you read the Holy Book.

Assalmu alaykum

Every movement, that takes the Muslims away from the Holy Qur'an, is responsible for their downfall.

Sufism obscured the true picture of the real concept of the religion and hindered its effective propagation. This must have cast negative effects.

Some scholars insist that the Downfall of Mu,tazilas was one of the causes of Muslim Downfall. Do u agree?

I'd rather relate the downfall to the general attitude of the Muslims istead of relating it to some faction.

Salamoona,
I think that the ascendence of Ashaarites led to the blind following(taqlid) which is one of the
causes of Muslim downfall.

Agreed. Bling following is one major cause for the downfall of the Muslim Ummah. Did you ever think why blind following gained acceptance among the masses?
