Syaikh Abdullah Al-Muhaysini: Before The Ship Sinks!
23 August 2016
By Syaikh Abdullah Al-Muhaysini
These are a number of cries I write to the leaders and Mujahideen and Ahl
Sunnah in general and the people of Shaam especially with the title ''Before
the ship sinks.''
First: Oh leaders of the Shaami Jihaad, by Allah I love you for the sake of
Allah, when I saw your eager for the religion of Allah, but I am saddened by
your constant division. Oh leaders of Jihaad by Allah I fear that a day will
come in which generations of people will invoke Allah against you and that
they will accuse you and say to others take a lesson from the failure of the
leaders of Shaam.
Everyone of you has an excuse but the order of Allah is straight and clear and
confronts all benefits and legal opinions. You Lord orders you to fight as if
you were one building. Unite despite the link with Al-Qaedah or without the
link, the important thing is that you answer the order of Allah before the
ship sinks, then there won't be any Jihaad nor Sharia nor supporting the
All of you are united upon two important fundamentals: 1.) The rule of the
Sharia and the refusal of whatever opposes it. 2.) Support the opressed and
repulse the transgressors. So I am amazed at how you could be devided while
you are united upon these two matters.
Oh leaders of the factions think about our situation, is it right that the
people have more than one ruling power? Think about the situation of our
divided power, this one uses his power here and that one uses his power there.
Think about the frustration of the people.
I ask Allah that there will not come a day in which we will cry about Jihadi
fields which were once in our hands. Oh Allah I wanted this for Your servants
so take our souls without us being tried with turmoil. And I ask your
forgiveness my Ummah, Allah knows that I was calling the factions to unity for
two years now, but..
Be witnesses and I testify towards Allah that I am innocent from your division
and your disobedience towards Allah; my lord and your lord. And I will stay
and fight Jihaad with you under your banner and I will work towards uniting
your words and reform what I am capable of. And I hand my situation over to
Allah. And Allah is all seeing over His servants.
By Allah there is no solution for the field in Shaam except through a true
fusion and forming a strong army of 50.000 Muslim heroes to confront thousands
of Afghan and Iranian Rawafid.
My second message: To the military leaders, the heroes on the field, by Allah
regain the ball and open the route to rural Northern Aleppo before they
strengthen their positions.
Third: To the people of Shaam, be easy on yourself the situation is not like
the quiverers paint it. The truthfull factions will stay a preventing wall for
you with the permission of Allah. I see hundreds of youths heading towards the
border crossing of Baab Al-Salamah! Praise be to Allah, where are you fleeing?
Allah warned the one who flees from battle with His anger and punishment in
Hellfire. Do you want this?!
Fourth: To the youth of Syria, is it right that you see the march of the
Rawafid while you are asleep? Now that every youth who stays behind from
Jihaad is committing a major sin in Islam. I see hundreds of youths heading
towards the border crossing of Baab Al-Salamah! Praise be to Allah, where are
you fleeing? Allah warned the one who flees from battle with His anger and
punishment in Hellfire. Do you want this?!
Finally: The families who are able to flee can do so but for whom are you
leaving your lands? If you must then flee from the big cities to the villages
they are many and spread and save with the permission of Allah.
Oh Allah make these words accepted and our final prayer, all thanks are due to
Allah the Lord of the worlds.
