The Islamic world for 13th centuries was an ummah with its own government and leadership which known in history as the Caliphate Rashda, the Umayyads, the Abbasids, or the Ottomans. This political leadership considered it its duty to maintain the Khilafah system. Eventually, through internal and external conspiracies, this historic fortress was demolished and the unity of the ummah was shattered. The creation of the state of Israel was a great oppression of the capitalist countries and their continued construction and support of this state is a great injustice. At present, the genocide of Muslims in the Islamic countries of Iraq, Afghanistan, Kashmir, Bosnia, Chechnya and Myanmar is a link in the same chain. Despite the fact that the Islamic world has abundant natural resources, it is worth noting that it is one of the most backward countries. One of the factors behind all these problems is to pursuit of financial gain, which is now called capitalism.
