When The Life Of Muslim Is Cheaper Than Life Of Other People

By Al-Ikhwah Al-Mujahidun

Allah SWT says: "And do not say about those who are killed in the way of Allah , "They are dead." Rather, they are alive, but you perceive [it] not." (QS. 2 : 154).

In this verse, Allah SWT clarifies the condition of the Mujahids who are slain in the way of Allah, they are not dead but alive, blessed with His grace and favor. As in another verse Allah SWT says: "And whoever obeys Allah and the Messenger - those will be with the ones upon whom Allah has bestowed favor of the prophets, the steadfast affirmers of truth (siddiiqeen), the martyrs (shuhada )and the righteous (soliheen). And excellent are those as companions." (QS. 4 : 69).

This means there is no doubt that they live in a realm that we do not know where. In what sphere? Can it be perceived by the sensory organs? etc. But we can see the silver lining, namely when the topmost practice of religion (dienul Islam) is performed, then the promise of Allah contained in the Qur'an and Hadith is a reality. Not only that, they are even assembled in a state of happiness, tranquility, peacefulness, full of enjoyments, together with the Prophets, Sidiqqeen and the righteous people.

There are some features made visible by Allah SWT to the humans so that they are convinced of the truth of the shaheed (martyrdom). Amongst the features are:

1. The janaza of the shaheed normally remains intact and does not rot like the janaza of ordinary people.
2. The fragrant scent of heaven that is nothing like it in this world emanates from their bodies.
3. Their departure creates a sweetness and memory for the families, relatives and the Islamic ummah.
4. Their faces are beaming though the bodies are damaged etc.
5. Emitting the light of iman that that creates the sense of emotion, happiness and fascination for those who look at the janaza.
6. Signs of shaheed shown through natural phenomena of elements, creatures, etc.

These are just a part of features, there are still many other signs of shaheed shown to us by Allah SWT. An Ikhwan in fact had witnessed, when in the process of laying to rest the janaza of a Mujahid in Moro, Philippines, bright light which was suddenly emitted from the grave pit, rising to the sky above that made the dark and cloudy ambiance of the night turned to become like the morning day, an extremely beautiful sight indeed. Then we heard from an ikhwan that during the burial of Ash-Shaheed Dr. Azahari, some family members and friends sighted the script of the kalimah of shahadah: "Laa Illaha Illallah Muhammadarasulullah" (in Arabic) formed by a group of ants. Even here not long ago, we were witnessing how the phenomena of nature and fauna (in the form of green birds) which occurred at the funeral of the Bali Bombing Trio: Amrozi, Mukhlas and Imam Samudra, though they had been shaheed but they still gave a big contribution to the families, friends and the Islamic ummah. No matter how much the kafir and munafiq hate and impede to damage the image of the Mujahids by employing a variety of ways, yet the makar (plot) of Allah SWT can never be defeated.

So it is appropriate that Allah SWT stated in the Qur'an in surah: As-Saaff: 10-11 which means:

"O you who have believed, shall I guide you to a transaction that will save you from a painful punishment? [It is that] you believe in Allah and His Messenger and strive (conduct jihad) in the cause of Allah with your wealth and your lives. That is best for you, if you should know."

This is the path that should be applied now!! Not the way of the thaghut that is assumed to be the same i.e. in order to establish the Shari'a of Allah SWT. Whereas, Allah SWT is not pleased with that way of the thaghut. "Liyuhiqqal Haqqa Yayubtilal Batiila!!" As long as we are still intermixing the haq with the batil or we are still sitting together with the kafir and munafiq, it is also that long that we will be spun around like the people of Prophet Musa AS when they were ordered to enter the city of Palestine and they refused because they were afraid, whereas Allah SWT had already showed them the way.....

"O my people, enter the Holy Land (PALESTINE) which Allah has assigned to you and do not turn back [from fighting in Allah 's cause] and [thus] become losers. They said, 'O Moses, indeed within it is a people of tyrannical strength, and indeed, we will never enter it until they leave it; but if they leave it, then we will enter.' Said two men from those who feared [to disobey] upon whom Allah had bestowed favor, 'Enter upon them through the gate, for when you have entered it, you will be predominant. And upon Allah rely, if you should be believers' They said, 'O Moses, indeed we will not enter it, ever, as long as they are within it; so go, you and your Lord, and fight. Indeed, we are remaining right here.' [Moses] said, 'My Lord, indeed I do not possess except myself and my brother, so part us from the defiantly disobedient people.' [ Allah ] said, 'Then indeed, it is forbidden to them for forty years [in which] they will wander throughout the land. So do not grieve over the defiantly disobedient people.'" (QS : Al-Maidah : 21-26)

Such was a piece of hope especially for us, so that it may become a much deeper looking for the Ikhwans who are still consistent in the path of Jihad fie Sabilillah, may Allah unite us with the Prophets, Mujahids, Siddiiqeen and Soliheen. Ameen.
