Obama Exhorts The Ummah To Do Shirk & Mustofa Ya'qub, Board Chairman Of Masjid Istiqlal, Agrees

28 November 2010

By Al-Ikhwah Al-Mujahidun

A piece of paper containing a handwritten note from the President of America, Barrack Obama, regarding the special impression on his visit to Masjid Istiqlal, was received by the Grand Imam of Masjid Istiqlal, KH Mohammad Ali Mustofa Ya'qub, on Wednesday 10 November 2010.

However, the handwritten note from the President of America, who himself had admitted to be Christian, although was seemingly inviting toward "goodness", whether intentional or not, contained an offer that leans towards shirk (idolatry). A form of belief which is very much prohibited by Islam, in fact it is the peak of all munkar.

It is reflected in the last part of the note written by President Obama: "…. I hope my visit promotes greater understanding between peoples of different countries and different faith for we are all children of God."

The last line contained the words "we are all children of God." This sentence is an invitation to shirk because in Islam, Allah Ta'ala clearly says:

Say: "He is Allah, the One and Only. Allah, the Eternal, Absolute. He begetteth not, nor is He begotten. And there is none like unto Him" (QS Al-Ikhlas 1-4).

Thed offer by saying "we are all children of God" is reminiscent of the incident put forward by the kafir Quraysh for what today is more or less called "inter-religious prayer", but Allah Ta'ala right away sent down Surah Al-Kafirun, in which the content firmly rejects the offer made by those kafir Quraysh.

Say: "O disbelievers, I do not worship what you worship. Nor are you worshippers of what I worship. Nor will I be a worshipper of what you worship. Nor will you be worshippers of what I worship. For you is your religion, and for me is my religion." (QS Al-Kafirun 1-6).

The handwritten note from Obama was received by the Grand Imam of Masjid Istiqlal, Kiyai (the most respectful and heritable title of Muslim leader in Indonesia) Hajj Mohammad Ali Mustofa Yakub. The following is the full content of the writing by Obama:

"I am honored to have had an opportunity to visit this magnificent mosque, which stands as a symbol of the role of Islam in guiding the lines of millions of Indonesians. I hope my visit promotes greater understanding between peoples of different countries and different faith for we are all CHILDREN OF GOD."

How should the Muslims respond?

How do we respond, whereas we know that there is the verse "lakum dinukum waliyadin" ِ(For you is your religion, and for me is my religion)?

Imam Ibnu Katsir connected that verse with the attitude of Prophet Ibrahim AS and his followers towards the mushrikeen:

"Indeed, we are disassociated from you and from whatever you worship other than Allah. We have denied you, and there has appeared between us and you animosity and hatred forever until you believe in Allah alone." (QS Al-Mumtahinah 4).

Even though that note from Obama is related to the visit to Masjid Istiqlal, but its content was essentially inviting to shirk. Because as Allah Ta'ala has explained:

"Never will the Jews or the Christians be satisfied with you unless you follow their form of religion. Say: "Indeed, the Guidance of Allah is the (only) Guidance." If you were to follow their desires after what has come to you of knowledge, you would have against Allah no protector or helper." (QS Al-Baqarah 120).

For the Islamic ummah, the utterance of "insha Allah" or "assalamu'alaikum" expressed by Obama on his visit to Indonesia did not necessarily dazzle their Aqeedah. The Islamic ummah still believe more in what Allah and His Rasul have spoken, including: "lakum dinukum waliyadin." ِ For you is your religion, and for me is my religion, yeah! Mister Obama.

Note:

Obama is a Kafir Harby, due to that the Islamic Ummah especially in Indonesia should be asking: "O Managers of Masjid Istiqlal, the MUI [Majelis Ulama' of Indonesia] which they are affiliated with and the Religious Department nextdoor to them, show to us (the Islamic ummah) just one daleel that a kafir harby can enter the masjid…?" Can the sanctity of the Masjid be entered by the most odious creature…? Answer! O you who have the title Dr., LC., Ir. (scholarly licence/MA from Islamic universities), Ustadz and KH (kyai haji), etc.
