  Ummah
In view of the superiority of the kuffaar’s technology and sophistication in every sphere of mundane life, the misguided doctors of the Ummah have concluded that the tyranny and oppression of the kuffaar (the U.S.A., Britain, Israel, and the West in general) are the cause of the misery of the Muslim community world- wide.
Those who attribute the disgrace and misery of today’s Ummah to the kuffaar are unable to understand that the kuffaar domination over the Ummah and their oppression of Muslims are the symptoms, not the causes of our malady.
The message is stated explicitly that on account of the then Muslim Ummah’s transgression Allah Ta’als sent His punishment on the Muslims in the form of kuffaar armies which overran Palestine, brutalized its people, penetrated and defiled Musjidul Aqssa, and flattered everything in an orgy of anarchy and seemingly senseless violence.

Ummah couldn't hear the soft sound of the corpse hitting the gravel from where he crouched, but he didn't have to.
Ummah, for his part, could care less: his Prince only cares about whether this particular Djinn can (and will), upon command, put a bullet into someone's brain from 400 yards away.

 Article: Our Special Ummah   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-09-05)
Vested with the mission of ensuring that justice prevails, the Ummah cannot be either unjust or indifferent to injustice, within or outside its fold.
This role model is primarily based on the preeminence, excellence, and superiority of the Ummah over others in terms of its faith, morality, virtue, and sacrifice, spirit of love and justice, and capable leadership.
But to do so, internally within the Muslim Ummah and externally for mankind as a whole, necessitates, based on Islamic values and principles and under the institutional framework of a state, legitimate political and moral authority to provide the requisite means and support for this noble duty.

 BBC NEWS | Programmes | Panorama | British Muslims and the Ummah
Firstly, the term 'Ummah' (or 'Nation')refers to a people sharing the same belief in their Lord and that which is contained in Revelation (Quran and the Prophetic tradition).
The Ummah is no different to the concept of the Jewish Diaspora, or indeed the alliances between the white English Speaking nations.
In the Indian sub-continent itself the concept of the global Ummah was used to argue against the division of India by Muslim scholars and activists of the time.

 Ummah
The term is used to describe both individual communities, both great and small, of faithful Muslims and to refer to the world-wide community of believers—in the latter sense of the term it is synonymous with dar al-Islam, or "The House of Islam," which refers to the world Islamic community.
   In Islamic social theory, the ummah is formed from the threefold consensus of its members: consensus of the mind, consensus of the heart, and consensus of arms.
The ummah is formed from the consensus of minds in that all the members of the society share the same view of reality.

 Jonathan Raban: The greatest gulf | Review | Guardian Unlimited Books
On the website of Khilafah.com, a London-based magazine, Yusuf Patel writes: "The Islamic Ummah is manifesting her deep feeling for a part of her body, which is in the process of being severed." It would be a great mistake to read this as mere metaphor or rhetorical flourish.
Ummah is sometimes defined as the community, sometimes the nation, sometimes the body of Muslim believers around the globe, and it has a physical reality, without parallel in any other religion, that is nowhere better expressed than in the five daily times of prayer.
The Ummah, a body literally made up of bodies, has a corporeal substance that is in dramatic contrast to the airy, arbitrary, dissolving and reconstituting nations of Arabia.

 Ummah Wasat: So That The Meaning Is Not Lost In Translation
Ummah Wasat is this specific criterion; it is this honorable Qur'anic description; and it is this important Qur'anic word.
Being an Ummah Wasat is also affirmed in the third part of the Ayah "…and the Messenger (be) a witness over you", which includes the present, the past and the future of the Ummah.
Therefore, it is a duty upon all groups within the Ummah, their scholars, and their schools of thought, to restrict their definition of the word "Wasat" to "justice" alone, as was defined by the Messenger of Allah, sallAllahu 'alayhi wasallam, and defined by the great scholars of old.

 [No title]
"Ummah" is a common Arabic word meaning "people group", or "nation." The term takes on a religious connotations in the Qur'an where God is said to have sent to each ummah its own messenger.
Jews are an ummah based on the Torah which God gave to Moses, Christians an ummah based on the Injil (gospel) which God gave to Jesus, and Muslims an ummah based on the Qur'an, which God "sent down" to Muhammad.
To the Muslim way of thinking, the only ummah that counts is the Ummah Islamiyyah, the Islamic Community, an entity that theoretically comprises all Muslims throughout the world, whatever their national origin.

The Ummah has to become that agency, that instrument, by means of which the message of the Quran reaches all of humanity.
