إن الحمد لله نحمده نستعينه ونستغفره ونعوذ بالله من شرور أنفسنا ومن سيئات أعمالنا من يهده الله فلا مضل له ومن يضلله فلا هادي له و أشهد أن لا إله إلا الله وحده لا شريك له و أشهد أن محمدا عبده ورسوله
أما بعد فإن أصدق الحديث كتاب الله وخير الهدي هدي
محمد {ص ع م} وشر الأمور محدثاتها و كل محدثات بدعة و كل بدعة ضلالة وكل ضلالة في النار

 

Ibaadah - a Basic Obligation of the Human Beings

Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar wa liLlahil hamd!

Allah Azza wa Jalla says:

“O mankind, worship your Lord, who created you and those before you, that you may become righteous,” (QS. Al Baqarah : 21 )

O Muslimeen rahimakumullah, Allah Jalla wa ‘Alaa has created the universe and its contents in all completeness and beauty so that mankind can actualize their basic fitrah as slaves of Allah who continue to serve Him throughout life and the opportunity given to him by Allah.

In the same manner as the universe, good human life can only be organized and become of high value if they are subject to the teachings of Allah, Most Holy, Most High. And this is the true essence of the nature of ibaadah which is within every individual. So it is of no use and impossible to be accepted by Allah if someone from the outside appears to perform the Islamic rituals, but in his practical life, he himself cancels his own confession of his iman by doing things that cancel it out. For example: following other laws besides the Shari’a of Islam.

Prophet SAW said:

"The knots/ties of Islam will be cut off one by one. Everytime a knot is broken mankind begins to hold on to the next rope. The first one to break is the Law, and the last one is Solat." ( HR Ahmad, Thabrani, Ibnu Hibban )

Shaykh Abdul Aziz bin Abdulloh bin Baz rahimahullah stated that the kalimah: "The first one to break is the Law" has a clear meaning. Namely, the absence of the application of Allah’s Shari'a. And this has becomes a reality in most countries that claim to be an Islamic state and become members of the OIC. Whereas, as generally understood, they are all obliged to implement the Islamic law in all things, and are forbidden to impose the various man-made laws and all practices that contradict the Islamic Shari'a based on the verse of Allah:

"But no, by the Lord, they can have no (real) Faith, until they make thee judge in all disputes between them, and find in their souls no resistance against Thy decisions, but accept them with the fullest conviction." (QS An-Nisaa : 65)

Also the verse of Allah: "And whoever does not judge by what Allah has revealed – then it is those who are defiantly disobedient (kafir)." (QS Al-Ma'idah 47)

The ulama's rahimahumullah have explained that the obligation of all the leaders is to impose the Shari'a of Allah in all aspects of the Muslim's life and in all disputed issues amongst themselves, so that they are truly worthy and legal by Shar’ie that they are leaders of the believers, that the Muslims are obliged to obey them as long as they don't commit transgression against Allah Azza wa Jalla.

But the ulama's have also explained that the leaders who decide upon a law which is not with the Shari'a sent down by Allah and they considered such actions to be halal, then they becomes kafir with a big kufr that causes them to be expelled from the Dien ul-Islam. Especially if they have deliberately crossed out the implementation of the Shari'a of Islam and continued the legacy of the kafir colonial law, which are consistently applied to their citizens who are mostly Muslims.

The Presence Of Kafir’s Hostility Towards Muslims

Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar wa liLlahil hamd!

Allah Azza wa Jalla says:

“Nor will they cease fighting you until they turn you back from your faith if they can. And if any of you Turn back from their faith and die in unbelief, their works will bear no fruit in this life and in the Hereafter; they will be companions of the Fire and will abide therein.” (QS. Al-Baqarah : 217)

O Muslimeen rahimakumullah, when the children of Prophet Adam AS were still a few in number but the hostility between the descendants of Adam had already emerged in the form of murder amongst themselves, this also has the process of taqarrub (ibaadah ) towards Allah SWT by two parties (Habil and Qabil) as the background. Qabil's hatred towards his brother, Habil whose ibaadah was accepted by Allah, encouraged Qabil to do a bad sunnah i.e. killing that of his brother.

So do not be surprised and confused when the enemies of Islam are launching all forms of enmities, either silently or openly. In fact, when they are hostile towards Islam and the Muslimeen, it was based on their claim that they're doing something good for their nation and country, in fact for justice and humanity.

If those enemies of Islam are having the upper hand in terms of their numbers, wealth, power and armaments, they will declare a CONFRONTATION i.e. open attacks on the Muslims in many places they could reach. As we see today, when George W. Bush declared the Global War on Terrorism post the 911 event with the strategy of pre-emptive strike, hitting the enemy in the enemy's territory. Followed by Obama who sent another 30,000 additional American troops to Afghanistan.

But where they have a few abettors (collaborators/compradors) in the countries of their target, they would arrange a CONSPIRATION i.e. evil conspiracy with the munafiq who are in power but in reality are just lackeys, the product of their recruitment. Where they are concealing their heinous maneuvers in targeting and arresting, in fact even murdering the da’ies and Mujahids under the guise of saving the nation from terrorism. Even though the truly more dangerous potential for terror against the people and country are the corruptions, pornography, narcotics, separatist groups and etc., but since the Islamic activists are worth more dollars, then the shootings are only aimed at the militant Muslims.

And we believe, the Qur’an is never wrong indeed in predicting the hostility of the kuffar against Islam and the Muslims. The wrong ones are precisely those who claimed to be Muslims, in fact they even frequently go for hajj but are positioning themselves consciously to become stooges of the kuffar in cornering Islam and the Muslims. They are even supported with funds, trainings, equipment and weapons to carry out the agenda of America in a country which in the past was liberated by the Mujahids with the cry of “Allahu Akbar…!”

Didn’t one of the leaders of this country say: “I love the United State, with all its faults. I consider it my second country.”

The Universal Legal Obligations Of Muslims in Defending Their Rights

Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar wa liLlahil hamd!

Allah Azza wa Jalla says:

“Did not Allah check one set of people by means of another, there would surely have been pulled down monasteries, churches, synagogues, and mosques, in which the name of Allah is commemorated in abundant measure. Allah will certainly aid those who aid his (cause);- for verily Allah is full of Strength, Exalted in Might, (able to enforce His Will).” (QS Al-Hajj : 40)

O Muslimeen rahimakumullah , the Shari’a of Islam does not allow the Muslims to remain silent and surrender to evil, whether it be between fellow Muslims, let alone the atrocities inflicted by the enemies of Islam!

The Shari’a of Islam which was sent down by Allah SWT through the examples and wisdoms of Prophet Muhammad SAW 14 centuries ago, in order to make happen the welfare of the Islamic ummah specifically and mankind generally. Where in order to realize those benefits, the Shari’a of Islam obliges us to maintain the five things, which are; dharuriyah (primary), then the things which are of necessity in nature / additional hajiyah (secondary), only then for the last are the things which are tahsiniyah (supplementary) in nature / entirely decorative. It is the process maintaining what we call the Tathbiiqus Shari’a.

Therefore, based on the studies of the ulama’s on the practices of Prophet Muhammad SAW and his Sahabahs with regards to Tathbiiqus Shari’a above, protecting the Dien is prioritized than protective the lives, aqal, descendants and properties. Although those five things are of one package in matters which are of dharuriyah in nature.

For that reason, it is haram – once again, haram, for the Muslims to remain silent when the honour (muru’ah) and dignity of the highness of Islam are mocked!

O Muslimeen rahimakumullah, are we aware? That the Dien ul-Islam in different parts of the world inhabited by as much as 1.5 billions Muslims, the progenies of Prophet Adam AS, out of approximately 5 – 6 billions humanity, are being trampled, and the blood as well as the honor of the Muslims today are cheap.

If there are 1.5 millions Iraqi children who died as a result of the embargo on medicines commandeered by America through the umbrella of the UN. If there are thousands or even millions of Afghan civilians who died as a result of the barbaric attacks by the Soviet Union and now continued by America. And may be millions others in Palestine, Chechnya, Bosnia, Somalia, Philippines, Thailand, Myanmar( Roohingya ), Xin Jiang (China) in fact even in countries which become an Islamic symbol such as Egypt, Yemen and others, all of those are not a humanitarian tragedy in which the justice that it deserves must be established, but all are assessed just as a mere statistic!

Why? Because those who are massacred and as appropriately died in cruel ways such as by being killed with bombs of mass destruction, are the Muslims!

Yes…! Since they are Muslims, then in the scales of the world leaders today, they can be killed in heinous ways!

Whereas if there are Mujahideen attacks against the enemies of Islam, and there are civilians among the victims, then the whole world would yell, curse and accused it as an act of terrorism, classified as an extraordinary crime. Why? Because the actors are Muslims who are conducting jihad, while the victims are western citizens who are decorous in the eyes of the world!

The world is silent on Ariel Sharon, Simon Peres, George W Bush, Tommy Blair and not to mention Obama who is currently in power, whereas they have committed war crimes against the Muslims, in the lands of the Muslims! But all the countries in the world under the umbrella of the UN are instead giving bad names and accusations on the Mujahids of Islam in this century using the label “Terrorists”, to the point that they are allied in hunting, capturing, torturing and murdering those Mujahids of Islam.

If those acts of the Mujahids of Islam, in defending the honor, dignity and blood of the Muslims from the atrocities of the kuffar invaders, are classified as terrorism, while those kuffar leaders are affixed with brotherhood, in fact even considered as guests of honor of the State when to come to visit, by the leaders of Muslim countries, so we are asking: “What model of barbaric world civilization are you defending and protecting with the wealth and the people of the Muslim countries, O leaders…?”

The Necessity of Sabr and Istiqomah in the Resistance against Colonialism and Oppressions by the Kuffar and their Partners in Crime

Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar wa liLlahil hamd!

 

Allah Azza wa Jalla says:

“How many of the prophets fought (in Allah's way), and with them (fought) Large bands of godly men? But they never lost heart if they met with disaster in Allah's way, nor did they weaken (in will) nor give in. And Allah Loves those who are firm and steadfast.” ( QS. Ali Imran : 146 )

O Muslimeen rahimakumullah, we are taught by Allah and His Rasul to not regret and only cry for all the grief's caused by the atrocities aimed at Islam and the Muslims. We may become tongue-tied, the tears may dry out, the palms of our hand are clenched in rigidity… what else can we do? But the spirit of resistance should never be extinguished, the souls of revival are forbidden from being sunken. Because there's still hope up there, there is always gallantly enthroned in the heaven, The One The Most Rahman, Allahul Malikul Jabbar.

His decree for this reality which to us feels bitter is a rahmah given to believers so that the fighting fields and arena of rewards are always available so that He knows who amongst us are truly believers and takes some of us as Shuhadaa’! Allahu Akbar…!

Our obligation during this time of tribulation (oppressions) is to strengthen our iman and fortify our patience, which will produce an istiqomah attitude that brings the help from Allah Azza wa Jalla, insha Allah …ameen!

Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar wa liLlahil hamd!

Allah Azza wa Jalla says:

“And slacken not in following up the enemy: If ye are suffering hardships, they are suffering similar hardships; but ye have Hope from Allah, while they have none. And Allah is full of knowledge and wisdom.” (QS. An-Nisaa’ : 104 )

O Muslimeen rahimakumullah, lastly, let all of us understand that there is a price to pay, there should be a noble thing to be sacrificed for the sake of a more honorable life and for the sake of the future eternal happiness in the akhira. We cannot feel satisfied just by doing the rituals of ibaadah and then dream of entering the paradise of Allah Azza wa Jalla, but we are not concerned with what happens to our religion and the conditions of the Muslims around us.

Not a few from among our brothers, in fact our mentor and leader - Ustadz Abu Bakar Ba’asyir and other Ikhwans – who cannot perform the ibaadah of Ramadhan in the same manner as how we perform it in the free world out here. They are performing the ibaadah of Ramadhan within the limitations imposed by the tyrannical power, that the prison becomes the mihrab (niche) of their ibaadah. May Allah Azza wa Jalla bestow sabr and istiqomah for us and them…ameen!

Of course, all those bitter realities are somewhat hitting and injuring our feelings and the journey of our struggle. But all those should become a big hikma for the activities of our struggle forward.

HasbunAllah wa ni’mal wakiil ni’mal maula wa ni’man nasiir, Allahu Akbar wa lillahil hamd!

Lastly, let us make do’a to Allah Azza wa Jalla:


اللهم لا تجعل مصيبتنا في ديننا ولا تجعل الدنيا أكبر هــمنا ولا مبلغ علمنا ولا تسلط علينا من لا يرحمنا
اللهم انصر المجاهدين في كل مكان واجمع كلمتهم وثبت أقدامهم وانصرهم علي عدوك وعدوهم وانصرهم نصرا مؤزرا
اللهم أنج المجاهدين المسجونين والغارّين بدينهم في كل مكان
اللهم العن كفرة أهل الكتاب الذين يصدون عن سبيلك ويكذبون رسلك و يقاتلون أولياءك . اللهم خالف بين كلمهم وأنزل بهم بأسك الذي لا ترده عن القوم المجرمين
ربنا آتنا في الدنيا حسنة و في الآخرة حسنة وقنا عذاب النار
ربنا تقبل منا إنك أنت السميع العليم و تب علينا إنك أنت التواب الرحيم
سبحان ربك رب العزة عما يصفون و سلام على المرسلين . والحمد لله رب العالمين

والسلام عليكم ورحمة الله
وبركاته
