Defence Letter Of Ustadz Aman: The Guilty One Is Fir'aun, Not Us

03 January 2011

By Al-Ikhwah Al-Mujahidun

Last Monday (6/12) Ustadz Aman read out his defence letter in the District Court of West Jakarta. In the defence letter entitled "The Guilty One Is Fir'aun, Not Us", Ustadz Aman articulately and assertively explained his position and the position of the government which has imprisoned him. The following is the full content of Ustadz Aman's defence letter. May it be useful!

The Guilty One Is Fir'aun, Not Us

All praises belong to Allah alone, the Ruler of the universe, to Whom all affairs are surrendered, that there is no truth except when sourced from His teachings, and there is no blameworthiness unless otherwise it is wrong in His teachings.

May salawat and salam be showered upon Rasulullah who was sent to bring the laws and teachings, that whoever is disputing it and deviating from it, then he has lost his way. Indeed there is no error and violation except in the violation against the law that he had brought.

Wa ba'du:

Allah Ta'ala says:

إِنَّ فِرْعَوْنَ وَهَامَانَ وَجُنُودَهُمَا كَانُوا خَاطِئِينَ

"Indeed, Pharaoh (Fir'aun) and Haman and their soldiers were deliberate sinners." (Al-Qasas: 8)

This verse affirms that King Fir'aun, his official aides and security apparatus are the guilty party who become the suspects and defendants before the law of Allah Ta'ala. But of course they did not admit that they are the guilty party which deserve to be evicted to the court, because they are the ruling regime in which all their actions and speeches are legitimate by law and right according to the law, the reason is because the existing law and legislation are their own inventions.

Know that indeed Allah Ta'ala has mentioned that among the errors of Fir'aun is that he has overstepped beyond the limit as a creature (of Allah):

اذْهَبْ إِلَى
فِرْعَوْنَ إِنَّهُ طَغَى


"Go you (Musa) to Fir'aun for he has indeed transgressed all bounds," (An-Naziat: 17)

where he (Fir'aun) said:

أَنَا رَبُّكُمُ الْأَعْلَى


"I am your Lord, Most High." (An-Naziat: 24)

also his words:

مَا عَلِمْتُ لَكُم مِّنْ إِلَهٍ
غَيْرِي


"I do not know any god for you besides me." (Al-Qasas: 38)

In fact, with arrogance he said to Prophet Musa 'alaihissalam:

لَئِنِ اتَّخَذْتَ إِلَهًا غَيْرِي لَأَجْعَلَنَّكَ
مِنَ الْمَسْجُونِينَ


"If you take a god other than me, I will surely place you among those imprisoned." (Ash-Shu'ara: 29)

So among the faults of Fir'aun is that, he claimed himself to be the one and only god that has to be worshipped and he threatens those who deny his godship with the threat of imprisonment. But the question here is: what kind of godship is claimed and demanded by Fir'aun, and that it is his absolute prerogative right?

Did he claim to have created the heavens and the earth?

Did he claim that manfa'at (benefits) and mudharat (harms) are in his hands?

And did he claim to possess knowledge of the unseen things (ghaib)?

The answer to all these questions is "NO" according to the nas (texts) of the Qur'an. As for the first, i.e. that Fir'aun did not claim himself to be the one who created the heavens and the earth, and therefore on the contrary he believes that it is Allah Who created it all, it is as what had been said by Prophet Musa 'alaihissalam to Fir'aun:

لَقَدْ عَلِمْتَ مَا أَنزَلَ هَؤُلاء إِلاَّ رَبُّ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالأَرْضِ بَصَآئِرَ وَإِنِّي لَأَظُنُّكَ يَا فِرْعَونُ مَثْبُورًا

"You have already known that none has sent down these [signs] except the Lord of the heavens and the earth as evidence, and indeed I think, O Fir'aun, that you are destroyed." (Al-Isra: 102)

And as for the second, i.e. that Fir'aun did not claim to bring manfa'at and mudharat in his hands, where he could not bring in manfa'at and he could not resist mudharat, it is as Allah Ta'ala mentioned in the Qur'an where Allah Ta'ala struck punishments on Fir'aun and his people which they were not able to reject and avoid. Allah says:

فَأَرْسَلْنَا عَلَيْهِمُ الطُّوفَانَ وَالْجَرَادَ وَالْقُمَّلَ
وَالضَّفَادِعَ وَالدَّمَ آيَاتٍ مُّفَصَّلاَت


"So We sent upon them the flood and locusts and lice and frogs and blood as distinct signs," (Al-A'raf: 133)

And it turned out that what Fir'aun and his followers did when the punishment struck upon them was asking from Prophet Musa 'alaihissalam so that he would make do'a to Allah Ta'ala to remove the adzab from them, whilst saying:

يَا مُوسَى ادْعُ لَنَا رَبَّكَ بِمَا عَهِدَ عِندَكَ
لَئِن كَشَفْتَ عَنَّا الرِّجْزَ لَنُؤْمِنَنَّ لَكَ وَلَنُرْسِلَنَّ مَعَكَ بَنِي إِسْرَآئِيلَ


"O Moses, invoke for us your Lord by what He has promised you. If you [can] remove the punishment from us, we will surely believe you, and we will send with you the Children of Israel." (Al-A'raf: 134)

Therefore, Fir'aun believed that the manfa'at and mudharat are only in the Hands of Allah Ta'ala, and in fact Fir'aun also did not dare to confront the mu'jizat (miracle) of Prophet Musa 'alaihissalam during the duel which became the deciding factor, by hiring magicians to confront it, and even that was after he had asked for the opinions of his aides:

قَالَ الْمَلأُ مِن قَوْمِ فِرْعَوْنَ إِنَّ هَذَا لَسَاحِرٌ عَلِيمٌ، يُرِيدُ أَن يُخْرِجَكُم مِّنْ أَرْضِكُمْ فَمَاذَا تَأْمُرُونَ، قَالُواْ أَرْجِهْ وَأَخَاهُ وَأَرْسِلْ فِي الْمَدَآئِنِ حَاشِرِينَ، يَأْتُوكَ بِكُلِّ سَاحِرٍ عَلِيمٍ، وَجَاء السَّحَرَةُ فِرْعَوْنَ قَالْواْ إِنَّ لَنَا لأَجْرًا إِن كُنَّا نَحْنُ الْغَالِبِينَ، قَالَ نَعَمْ وَإَنَّكُمْ لَمِنَ الْمُقَرَّبِينَ، قَالُواْ يَا مُوسَى إِمَّا أَن تُلْقِيَ وَإِمَّا أَن نَّكُونَ نَحْنُ الْمُلْقِينَ، قَالَ أَلْقُوْاْ فَلَمَّا أَلْقَوْاْ سَحَرُواْ أَعْيُنَ النَّاسِ وَاسْتَرْهَبُوهُمْ وَجَاءوا بِسِحْرٍ عَظِيمٍ، وَأَوْحَيْنَا إِلَى مُوسَى أَنْ أَلْقِ عَصَاكَ فَإِذَا هِيَ تَلْقَفُ مَا يَأْفِكُونَ، فَوَقَعَ الْحَقُّ وَبَطَلَ مَا كَانُواْ يَعْمَلُونَ، فَغُلِبُواْ هُنَالِكَ وَانقَلَبُواْ صَاغِرِينَ، وَأُلْقِيَ السَّحَرَةُ سَاجِدِينَ

"Said the eminent among the people of Fir'aun, 'Indeed, this is a learned magician, who wants to expel you from your land [through magic].' [Fir'aun said], 'So what do you instruct?' They said, 'Postpone [the matter of] him and his brother and send among the cities gatherers who will bring you every learned magician.' And the magicians came to Pharaoh. They said, 'Indeed for us is a reward if we are the predominant?' He (Fir'aun) said, 'Yes, and, [moreover], you will be among those made near [to me].' They said, 'O Moses, either you throw [your staff], or we will be the ones to throw [first].' He (Musa) said: 'Throw,' and when they threw, they bewitched the eyes of the people and struck terror into them, and they presented a great [feat of] magic. And We inspired to Moses, 'Throw your staff,' and at once it devoured what they were falsifying. So the truth was established, and abolished was what they were doing. And Pharaoh and his people were overcome right there and became debased. And the magicians fell down in prostration [to Allah ]." (Al A'raf: 109-120)

Such were the hired people of the false god, incapable before the miracles of Musa 'alaihissalam, and they even turned into having faith in Musa 'alaihissalam, and Fir'aun was angry with them and killed them brutally.

And as for the part that Fir'aun did not know the unseen, it was when he had concerns that his power would be destroyed by a Bani Israel man, he then ordered his security forces to kill all the male people of Bani Israel, but he instead picked up and raised a male baby of the Bani Israel who would later become the destroyer of his power, namely Musa 'alaihissalam:

فَالْتَقَطَهُ آلُ فِرْعَوْنَ لِيَكُونَ لَهُمْ
عَدُوًّا وَحَزَنًا


"And the family of Fir'aun picked him (Musa) up [out of the river] so that he would become to them an enemy and a [cause of] grief," (Al-Qasas : 8 )

From the verses earlier it is known that Fir'aun believed that Allah Ta'ala is the only One Who created the heavens and the earth and all that they contain, He is the only One Who answers do'as and He is the only Dzat Who knows the unseen.

So in that case, what kind of godship did Fir'aun pin on himself and push away from any other, including Allah Ta'ala?

To understand this, then check out the following explanation:

Allah Ta'ala says:

إِنِ الْحُكْمُ إِلاَّ
لِلّهِ


"Legislation is not but for Allah." (Yusuf: 40)

This verse explains that the authority for making laws, legislations and ordinances is only the special right (prerogative) of Allah. This is because the authority of law-making is related to the creation, just as Allah Ta'ala says:

أَلاَ لَهُ الْخَلْقُ وَالأَمْرُ


"Unquestionably, it is His to create and to govern." (Al-A'raf : 54)

Since the One Who creates is only Allah, then only Allah alone is entitled to govern, veto and establish the laws and rules. And just as Allah Ta'ala does not include any creature in creation, then He also does not allow and include any creature in the authority to make laws and rules, just as He says:

وَلَا يُشْرِكُ فِي حُكْمِهِ
أَحَدًا


"And He does not share His Command with any person whatsoever." (Al-Kahf : 26)

And he even forbade to include or associate someone in the authority of law-making which is the prerogative of Allah Ta'ala. He Ta'ala says:

وَلَا تُشْرِكُ فِي حُكْمِهِ
أَحَدًا


"And don't you associate anyone in His legislation." (Al-Kahf :26 as in the mutawwatir qira'ah ibnu 'Amir)

Just as someone who believes that there is other creator besides Allah Ta'ala is mushrik and kafir, as well as considered as deifying other besides Allah, since the right of creation is the special right of Allah, then so are the people who rely the authority to make laws and rules on others besides Allah, mushrik and kafir, as well as already deifying others besides Allah.

Just as someone who claims to have had a share with Allah Ta'ala in creation is convicted as already claiming himself as god - the partner of Allah Ta'ala, then so are those who claim that they are entitled to make the laws and rules besides Allah, they have already claimed themselves as god - the partner of Allah Ta'ala. And just as someone who claims that he is the one who creates mankind and that there was no other who creates them other than himself, is already claiming himself as the one and only supreme god for mankind, then so are those who claim that only they themselves are entitled to make the laws and that there is no law that must be made as a reference except their laws, then it means that they are already claiming to be the supreme god.

In order to make this issue clearer, then note the content of this verse:

اتَّخَذُواْ أَحْبَارَهُمْ وَرُهْبَانَهُمْ أَرْبَابًا مِّن دُونِ اللّهِ وَالْمَسِيحَ ابْنَ مَرْيَمَ وَمَا أُمِرُواْ إِلاَّ لِيَعْبُدُواْ إِلَهًا وَاحِدًا لاَّ إِلَهَ إِلاَّ هُوَ سُبْحَانَهُ عَمَّا يُشْرِكُونَ

"They have taken their scholars and priests as lords besides Allah , and [also] the Messiah, the son of Mary. And they were not commanded except to worship one God; there is no deity except Him. Exalted is He above whatever they associate with Him." (At-Tawba: 31)

In this verse, Allah Ta'ala has condemned the Christians with a lot of condemnations, including:

1. They have deified their 'alim ulama's (scholars) and priests.
2. They have performed worships (ibaadah) to their 'alim ulama's and priests .
3. They have violated the laa ilaaha illallaah.
4. They have become mushrik.
5. And those 'alim (learned) position themselves as god.

What can be the shirk (idolatry) of the Christians, and their form of worship, and why was it said that those 'alim ulama's and priests have positioned themselves as arbab besides Allah? Is it because of ruku' (bowing) and sujud (prostration) or other reasons? Observe the commentaries of the Prophet Salallahu 'alaihi wa Sallam about this verse in a hasan hadith which was narrated by At-Tirmidzi, that when this verse was recited by Rasulullah Salallahu 'alaihi wa Sallam in front of 'Adi Ibnu Hatim (at that time was a Christian and later converted to Islam), and when 'Adi heard this verse with the earlier condemnations, he said: "We (the Christians) do not worship them" i.e. we never deify them and we never perform solat or make do'a to them, so why are we considered as having worshipped them, what form of worship do we have for them, thus Rasulullah Salallahu 'alaihi wa Sallam explained the forms of worship that they performed to their 'alim ulama's and priests with his saying:

أليسوا يحلون ما حرمه الله فتحلونه ويحرمون ما أحله الله
فتحرمونه


"Don't they make halal what Allah forbids and then you make then halal, and they forbid what Allah makes halal and then you forbid them?"

Then 'Adi answered: "Yes, it's true."

Then Rasulullah Salallahu 'alaihi wa Sallam said: "So that is the worship toward them".

So the worship here is the reliance of the laws by the people on the 'alim ulama's and priests, and the acceptance of their laws as a reference and trust, whereas it is the privilege of Allah Ta'ala where if it is turned towards others besides Him, then it is shirk akbar and when claimed by a creature then he has already exceeded the limit and claimed himself to be god. Al-Imam Hamd Ibnu 'Atiq said in his Kitab Ibthalut Tandid pg. 76:

أجمع العلماء علي أن من صرف شيئا من
نوعي الدعاء لغير الله فقد أشرك ولو قال لا إله إلا الله وصلي وصام وزعم أنه مسلم


"The ulama's have agreed that whoever turns anything from the ibaadah towards others beside Allah, then he has turned mushrik even if he says laa ilaaha illallaah, even if he performs solat and sawm, and even if he claims to be Muslim."

Whereas, the reliance of the laws is an ibaadah which is purely the right of Allah Ta'ala, and when relied on others besides Allah Ta'ala, then it is Shirk and those who make those laws as a reference then they are mushrik even if it is only one law, like what Allah Ta'ala has explained in the Qur'an concerning carcasses:

وَلاَ تَأْكُلُواْ مِمَّا لَمْ يُذْكَرِ اسْمُ اللّهِ
عَلَيْهِ وَإِنَّهُ لَفِسْقٌ وَإِنَّ الشَّيَاطِينَ لَيُوحُونَ إِلَى أَوْلِيَآئِهِمْ لِيُجَادِلُوكُمْ وَإِنْ أَطَعْتُمُوهُمْ إِنَّكُمْ لَمُشْرِكُونَ

"Eat not of (meats) on which Allah's name has not been pronounced: That would be impiety. But the evil ones (satans) ever inspire their friends to contend with you, if you were to obey them you would indeed be pagans (mushrik)." (Al-An'am: 121)

This verse partly relates to the debate between the Awliya Ar-Rahman and Awliya Ash-Shaithan (Quraish Kafireen), where the kafir made halal the carcass and debated the Muslims into joining them in making it halal. Al-Hakim narrated with a saheeh sanad from Ibnu 'Abbas Radliyallahu 'anhuma, he said regarding those words of the kafir: "What was slaughtered by Allah, you don't want to eat, while what you slaughtered, you eat," so Allah sent down, "Verily, the evil ones (satans) ever inspire their friends to contend with you."

Here, it is only one law, but Allah convicted those who follow it as mushrik, "and if you were to obey them, you would indeed be Mushrik," while those who accept it, as wali (friends) of satan, "Verily, the evil ones (satans) ever inspire their friends to contend with you" and the law invented was labelled as the revelation and whisper of satan.

If the reliance of the right of making just one law on other besides Allah Ta'ala is shirk and making that law as a reference in a verdict, accusation, fatwa or sentence is a shirk akbar which invalidates one's Islam, then what about the invention and reference to more than one man-made law?

And when the claim for the authority of making one law is a claim of godship, then what about the claim that it is he and his institutions that have the authority to make laws, and that any law would not be a valid law, as well as having the legal effectiveness, except when approved and finalized by himself and his institution? And this is the godship which Fir'aun meant in his speech:

أَنَا رَبُّكُمُ الْأَعْلَى


"I am your Lord, Most High." (An-Naziat: 24)

and his words:

مَا عَلِمْتُ لَكُم مِّنْ إِلَهٍ
غَيْرِي


"I do not know any god for you besides me." (Al-Qasas: 38)

i.e. that I am the only one who have the power to make laws and there is no law that you can obey other than my laws.

Whereas, the ibaadah that Fir'aun wants from his subjects is not the solat and do'a made to him, but obedience and loyalty to his laws and orders.

So this is among the errors and offences charged by Allah Ta'ala on Fir'aun, where he had planned and/or used other people to commit the criminal act of opposing Allah and His laws, whereas the charges strapped to the officials and security forces of Fir'aun was because they had intentionally provided assistance and convenience to Fir'aun in the criminal act of opposing the power of Allah. And all of them, namely Fir'aun, his officials and the security apparatus, had deliberately and consciously done an evil pact, attempts or assistance to commit the criminal act of opposing the laws of Allah Ta'ala and terrorization on the people who want to establish the laws of Allah Ta'ala with the terror of imprisonment as mentioned in surah Ash-Shu'ara verse 29:

لَئِنِ اتَّخَذْتَ إِلَهًا غَيْرِي لَأَجْعَلَنَّكَ مِنَ الْمَسْجُونِينَ

"If you take a god other than me, I will surely place you among those imprisoned."

And the terror of murder as mentioned in surah Ghafir verse 26:

وَقَالَ
فِرْعَوْنُ ذَرُونِي أَقْتُلْ مُوسَى


"And Pharaoh said, 'Let me kill Moses.'"

and the terror of torture as defined by his words:

فَلَأُقَطِّعَنَّ أَيْدِيَكُمْ وَأَرْجُلَكُم مِّنْ خِلَافٍ
وَلَأُصَلِّبَنَّكُمْ فِي جُذُوعِ النَّخْلِ


"Be sure I will cut off your hands and feet on opposite sides, and I will have you crucified on trunks of palm-trees." (Ta-Ha: 71)

and so Fir'aun then executed terror by ordering his security apparatus to kill the men who were feared to be endangering his ideology and governance, as well as letting the women neglected without protectors:

إِنَّ فِرْعَوْنَ عَلَا فِي الْأَرْضِ وَجَعَلَ أَهْلَهَا
شِيَعًا يَسْتَضْعِفُ طَائِفَةً مِّنْهُمْ يُذَبِّحُ أَبْنَاءهُمْ وَيَسْتَحْيِي نِسَاءهُمْ إِنَّهُ كَانَ مِنَ الْمُفْسِدِينَ


"Truly Pharaoh elated himself in the land and broke up its people into sections, depressing a small group among them: their sons he slew, but he kept alive their females: for he was indeed a maker of mischief." (Al-Qasas: 4)

Those are the charges and allegations which are fixed against Fir'aun and his auxiliaries.

And let us compare that reality of Fir'aun with the reality of the Government of the Republic of Indonesia.....

Is the rights of law-making authority in this country not in the Hands of Allah alone and not referred to Him alone, but given to many individual figures and institutions, i.e. given to the MPR, DPR, DPRD and President and others? For example see these proofs:

* Contained in the UUD (the Constitution) 1945 Chapter II Article 3 section 1: "People's Consultative Assembly (MPR) have the power to change and set the Basic Laws (Constitution)."

This means that the MPR is the arbab (gods) - the inventors of laws besides Allah Ta'ala, and the people who sit as its members are the people who claimed to be god like Fir'aun.

* In the Constitution 1945 Chapter VII Article 20 paragraph 1 it is stated that: "The House of Representatives (DPR) holds the power to form legislation," whereas in the teachings of Allah Ta'ala the Ruler of the heaven and earth, the One Who holds the power to make the laws and rules is only Allah Ta'ala:

إِنِ الْحُكْمُ إِلاَّ
لِلّهِ


"Legislation is not but for Allah." (Yusuf: 40)

And the meaning of Article 20 paragraph 1 UUD 1945 is the same as the words of Fir'aun:

أَنَا رَبُّكُمُ
الْأَعْلَى


"I am your Lord, Most High." (An-Naziat: 24)

i.e. that I am the one who holds the power to establish laws that apply to you.

* Then listed in the UUD 1945 Chapter VII Article 21 paragraph 1 is the statement that: "Members of the House of Representatives (DPR) have the right to propose draft laws," where the shar'ie meaning is that the members of the DPR are given the godly right by the UUD 45.

* Also in UUD 1945 Chapter III Article 5 paragraph 1 it is stated that: "The President has the right to submit draft laws to the House of Representatives (DPR)," meaning that the President and DPR equally have the godly attributes claimed by Fir'aun.

In fact the problem is not limited to the delegation of legal authorities to such Fir'aun's institutions, but all are bound and restricted with a supreme law book namely the UUD which is the invention of the MPR (supreme institution of Fir'aunism), where the DPR can make any law.

But must be in accordance with the UUD, such as in the UUD 45 Article 1 paragraph 2: "Sovereignty is in the hands of the people and carried out according to Basic Laws (UUD)."

And the President also has his power limited to the UUD invented by the arbab (gods) who sit in the MPR, not limited by the laws of the God of the heaven and the earth, as stipulated in the UUD 45 Chapter III Article 4 paragraph 1 that: "The President of the Republic of Indonesia holds the governmental power, in accordance with the UUD."

So it turns out that the acts of the rulers and government of this country exactly match the deeds of Fir'aun, and so are the actions of this country's security forces the same as the actions of Fir'aun's security forces.

When Fir'aun threatened every one who was disobedient to his godship and refused to submit to his laws with the threat of imprisonment:

لَئِنِ اتَّخَذْتَ إِلَهًا غَيْرِي لَأَجْعَلَنَّكَ مِنَ
الْمَسْجُونِينَ


"If you take a god other than me, I will surely place you among those imprisoned." (Ash-Shu'ara : 29)

Then so is the government of this country threatening every one who opposes their law and who wants to replace it with the Islamic law, with the threat of imprisonment, because it means that the rule of Islamic law is to deny the godship of the Pancasila and the godship of the law makers in the kafir system of democracy.

When Fir'aun accused Prophet Musa 'alaihissalam and his followers who invited mankind towards the teachings of Allah Ta'ala and His laws, as a destroyer of the order and of wanting to change the ideology of the state, thus they deserved to be killed and eradicated, just as in his words:

ذَرُونِي أَقْتُلْ مُوسَى وَلْيَدْعُ
رَبَّهُ إِنِّي أَخَافُ أَن يُبَدِّلَ دِينَكُمْ أَوْ أَن يُظْهِرَ فِي الْأَرْضِ الْفَسَاد


"And Pharaoh said, 'Let me kill Moses and let him call upon his Lord. Indeed, I fear that he will change your religion or that he will cause corruption in the land.'" (Al-Ghafir : 26)

where the among the meanings of "dien" is the law and legislation, just as Allah says:

مَا كَانَ لِيَأْخُذَ أَخَاهُ فِي دِينِ الْمَلِكِ


"He (Yusuf) could not take his brother by the law (dien) of the king," (Yusuf: 76)

So is the government of this country accusing the tawheed dai'es and mujahids who struggle to raise the kalimah of Allah in this country with pure tawheed da'wah and sincere jihad. The government accused them of being a destroyer of the order and of wanting to change the ideology of the state, who must be suppressed and eradicated, as well as provided a strong legal foundation and legal security in addressing the urgent problems in the eradication of those criminal acts and the perpetrators.

When Fir'aun ordered all his apparatuses in all areas to beware with the dangerous da'wah movement of Musa 'alaihissalam and his followers and so that they warned the public from getting near it, as well as watching them so as not to be influenced by the small groups who brought that misguided, strange, dangerous and disturbing ideology, just as Allah Ta'ala recounts:

فَأَرْسَلَ فِرْعَوْنُ
فِي الْمَدَائِنِ حَاشِرِينَ، إِنَّ هَؤُلَاء لَشِرْذِمَةٌ قَلِيلُونَ، وَإِنَّهُمْ لَنَا لَغَائِظُونَ، وَإِنَّا لَجَمِيعٌ حَاذِرُونَ


"Then Pharaoh sent among the cities gatherers [and said], "Indeed, those are but a small band, And indeed, they are enraging us, and indeed we all, with no exception, must always be vigilant." (Ash -Shu'ara: 53-56)

So is the government of this country doing the same thing, where they accuse the youths who desire for the success of the religion of Islam with tawheed and jihad, as astray people who coerce their wants and whose movements need to be watched out and observed, that an anti-jihad special detachment (densus) needs to be formed in order to handle it and a public police needs to be created in order to restrict their da'wah and teaching movement, as well as the special laws that need to be invented in order to trap the actors and supporters until there appeared the laws of the Republic of Indonesia no. 15 year 2003 about the Establishment of the governmental regulations as a substitute to law no. 1 year 2002 about the eradication of the criminal act of jihad, to become a law.

The measures taken by the government of this country and the measures of the government of Fir'aun are very similar indeed.

أَتَوَاصَوْا بِهِ بَلْ هُمْ قَوْمٌ طَاغُونَ


"Is this the legacy they have transmitted, one to another? Nay, they are themselves a people transgressing beyond bounds!" (Az-Zariyat : 53)

تَشَابَهَتْ
قُلُوبُهُمْ

"Their hearts are alike." (Al-Baqara : 118)

If this matter is certainly clear, then it is obvious that the guilty ones in the issue of the military training in Aceh are the Fir'auns of this country, their supporters and security apparatus who have executed an evil pact, attempts or assistance in committing a criminal act of opposing the authority of Allah Ta'ala, Who has commanded the Muslims to do military training in His verse:

وَأَعِدُّواْ لَهُم مَّا اسْتَطَعْتُم مِّن قُوَّةٍ وَمِن رِّبَاطِ
الْخَيْلِ تُرْهِبُونَ بِهِ عَدْوَّ اللّهِ وَعَدُوَّكُمْ


"And prepare against them whatever you are able of power and of steeds of war by which you may terrify the enemy of Allah and your enemy." (Al-Anfal : 60)

While among the forces that must be prepared is archery or shooting, just as the Prophet Salallahu 'alaihi wa Sallam said:

أَلا إِنَّ الْقُوَّةَ الرَّمْيُ أَلا إِنَّ الْقُوَّةَ الرَّمْيُ

"Remember, verily the strength is the shooting, remember, the strength is the shooting." (HR Muslim)

Whereas the shooting is by using the arrows, firearms and other devices according to the suitable era and development of technology.

To the extent that it is wajib (obligator) upon every Muslim male to be proficient in using them in order to do i'dad and jihad fie sabilillah. However, this kafir government of Indonesia precisely forbids the Muslims from possessing and using firearms, ammunitions and the likes, especially when used for the ibaadah of jihad, as declared by the anti-jihad laws chapter 9 that "Every person who unlawfully brings in to Indonesia, makes, accepts, attempts to acquire, hands over or attempts to hand over, masters, carries, owns stocks of them or has in his possession, keeps, transports, hides, uses or issues into and out of Indonesia a certain firearm, ammunition or a certain explosive material and other dangerous materials with the intent to commit the criminal acts of terrorism, shall be sentenced to death penalty or life imprisonment or minimum imprisonment for 3 (three) years and maximum of 20 (twenty) years."

Consider this 'plastic' article which ensnares all parties that has involvement in the procurement of firearms, ammunitions and other materials for the purpose of jihad. And among the evidence which shows that the criminal acts of terrorism defined in the plastic article earlier are I'dad and jihad is the reality that people who rob to loot other people's property by using firearms are only snared by Article 365 of the KUHP (Criminal Code) not with the anti terrorism UU in which the sentence is very light which makes the robbers getting more addicted. In fact, the use of firearms, ammunitions and the likes is a legal and even required thing if the purpose is to defend the nation and government, as well as the ideology of the kafir rulers, thus due to that the army and police are armed. Very evil and wicked are the adherents of this kind of kafir law, where firearms are prohibited from use, and in fact even if only for keeping them, if the purpose is to defend the religion and law of Allah, in fact knowing information regarding its existence and not right away reporting it is also not free from the noose of its punishment. However, if the one using it is the apparatus who upholds the kafir law and who maintains the kafir state system, then it is a legitimate thing.

And it is the plot of the enemies of Allah Ta'ala to keep themselves strong, as well as armed, and the Islamic ummah remaining weak, far from power and weapons so as to remain easily herded and regulated and destroyed when they are resisting, as in His verse:

وَدَّ الَّذِينَ كَفَرُواْ لَوْ تَغْفُلُونَ عَنْ أَسْلِحَتِكُمْ
وَأَمْتِعَتِكُمْ فَيَمِيلُونَ عَلَيْكُم مَّيْلَةً وَاحِدَةً


"Those who disbelieve wish that you would neglect your weapons and your baggage so they could come down upon you in one [single] attack." (An-Nisa: 102)

The government of Fir'aun of this country wants to extinguish the light of the religion of Allah Ta'ala in all sorts of ways, but it is not possible for the light of the sun to be extinguished though it can be temporarily covered by the clouds in some places.

يُرِيدُونَ أَن يُطْفِؤُواْ نُورَ اللّهِ
بِأَفْوَاهِهِمْ وَيَأْبَى اللّهُ إِلاَّ أَن يُتِمَّ نُورَهُ وَلَوْ كَرِهَ الْكَافِرُون


"They want to extinguish the light of Allah with their mouths, but Allah refuses except to perfect His light, although the disbelievers dislike it." (At-Tawbah: 32)

Therefore, to the government of this country please do as you like against us!... but remember we all will die, and before Allah Ta'ala we all will know whether the ideology of Pancasila which is now being upheld, the UUD 1945 which all these while has been made as a reference and the NKRI (Unitary State of the Republic of Indonesia) which they say is a 'fixed price', could save you from the adzabs of Allah Ta'ala or would they instead bring you destructions?

وَسَيَعْلَمُ الَّذِينَ ظَلَمُوا أَيَّ مُنقَلَبٍ
يَنقَلِبُونَ


"And those who have wronged are going to know to what [kind of] return they will be returned." (Ash-Shu'ara: 227)

Today, since the Fir'aun-like regime is in power, then all the malicious actions committed by its apparatuses in carrying out its orders are all simply legitimate, although it's a horrible terror or torture in secret places far from the reach of the media and in fact even murder by way of mayhem, and the same goes with the confiscation of properties.... All these are simply valid because it is already in conformity with the law.... What law? Yes, the laws which are made by the Fir'auns of this country... The essence is that it is power and strength that could make something legal or not....

However, when comes a day where power and dominion only belongs to Allah Ta'ala and all the regimes of Fir'aun have disappeared and become humiliated, then it is there that we will meet and direct our disputes to Allah the Almighty:

إِنَّكَ مَيِّتٌ وَإِنَّهُم مَّيِّتُونَ ثُمَّ
إِنَّكُمْ يَوْمَ الْقِيَامَةِ عِندَ رَبِّكُمْ تَخْتَصِمُونَ


"Indeed, you are to die, and indeed, they are to die. Then indeed you, on the Day of Resurrection, before your Lord, will dispute." [Az Zumar: 30-31]

Yes we will dispute... we are on the side that endeavoured to implement the law of Allah Ta'ala in this world, who were accused as criminals by this country's regime of Fir'aun, while this government and its legal apparatuses are on the side that insisted on running the thaghut law and enforce that law upon mankind....

Let's wait together the verdict and sentencing by the Ruler of the universe in the akhira later:

قُلْ كُلٌّ مُّتَرَبِّصٌ
فَتَرَبَّصُوا فَسَتَعْلَمُونَ مَنْ أَصْحَابُ الصِّرَاطِ السَّوِيِّ وَمَنِ اهْتَدَى


"Say, 'Each [of us] is waiting; so wait. For you will know who are the companions of the sound path and who is guided.'" [Ta-Ha: 135]

As for in this trial, please judge what you want to judge, because the decision to be decided has already been written in Al-Lauh Al-Mahfudh 50 thousand years before the creation of the heaven and the earth, to the point that we do not fear or we are not worried, but the one who should be worried and afraid are those who took part in oppressing us for no sin except that we have faith in Allah Ta'ala and we obey His laws, because indeed Allah Ta'ala will hasten the punishment for for the slightest injustice in this world besides that which Allah prepares in the akhira. Rasulullah Salallahu 'alaihi wa Sallam said:

بابان معجّلان عقو بتهما فيالدنيا: البغي
والعقوق


"Two doors in which the punishment is hastened in this world: oppression and rebelliousness."

Also his saying:

إن الله ليملي
للظالم حتى إذا أخذه لم يفلته


"Verily, Allah truly buys time for the unjust people, so that when He punishes them, they cannot escape Him."

اللهم يا منزل الكتاب ويا مجري السحاب ويا هازم الأحزاب أعز الإسلام والمسلمين وأهلك الكفرة الظالمين ودمر أعداء الدين
وصلى الله على نبينا محمد واله وصحبه وسلم
والسلام
على عباد الله المؤمنين
