Jihad In Indonesia Must Be Prepared: The Islamic Ummah In Bekasi

Last April (2010), the Islamic ummah in Bekasi had their anger fueled by the Christians through their insults and blasphemies against Islam in the blog belonging to Santo Bellarminus Bekasi. The blog with the title "finish off Islam in Indonesia" which was posted on Wednesday, 21st April 2010 at 02:05, made insults on Allah, His Rasul and the teachings of Islam which are not suitable to be expressed publicly, because the words used are so filthy and disgusting.

The insult did not stop there, they put up pictures of the Holy Book, the Qur'an in green colour, being tucked into the toilet hole, a truly outrageous insult.

The mission of the authors of the blog was also mentioned, the group who called themselves GMI (eradicate Islam movement), want to convert Muslims into their religion. Then followed by their vow to wipe out Islam from the face of the earth, with the conviction as follows:

"So from now on you must convert to Christian/Catholic, because this is the best religion!! In the name of God Jesus!! I swear I would wipe out Islam. After the Tanjung Priok riot in the past, many Christians had become victims, watch out Islam!! We will burn your ka'bah and masjids!! Long live GMI"

That's the nature of the kafir towards Islam, always harboring resentment and hostility against it. Unfortunately, many so-called tolerant Muslims do not believe it. In fact, they even accuse that it is the Muslims themselves who are always the instigators of the inter-religious conflicts. Whereas, Allah Subhanahu wa Ta'ala has already explained what's in the hearts of the kafir in a number of His verses, including:

1. QS. Al-Baqarah: 109

وَدَّ كَثِيرٌ مِنْ أَهْلِ الْكِتَابِ لَوْ يَرُدُّونَكُمْ مِنْ بَعْدِ إِيمَانِكُمْ كُفَّارًا حَسَدًا مِنْ عِنْدِ أَنْفُسِهِمْ مِنْ بَعْدِ مَا تَبَيَّنَ لَهُمُ الْحَقُّ

"Many of the People of the Scripture wish they could turn you back to disbelief after you have believed, out of envy from themselves [even] after the truth has become clear to them."

In this verse, Allah tells the Mu'mineen about the hostile attitude of the People of the Book against them, both outwardly and within themselves. Allah also informs about their malice towards the Mu'mineen, when they know the virtues of the believers and their Prophet. And the peak of their malice is, to the extent that they want convert them away from Islam (make them murtad).

2. QS. Al-Baqarah: 120

وَلَنْ تَرْضَى عَنْكَ الْيَهُودُ وَلَا النَّصَارَى حَتَّى تَتَّبِعَ مِلَّتَهُمْ

"And never will the Jews and Christians approve of you until you follow their religion."

In this verse Allah tells us about the enmity of the Jews and Christians towards Prophet Muhammad and his Sahabahs. Due to that, Allah ordered His prophet so as not to seek their pleasure and not to obey their wishes. Then Prophet sallallahu Ďalaihi wasallam commanded his ummah to struggle against them and informed us that there would be a group who are always fighting against them. He said,

لا تزال طائفة من أمتي يقتتلون على الحق ظاهرين، لا يضرهم من خالفهم، حتى يأتي أمر الله

"There will always be a group from my Ummah that will fight upon truth openly. They are not concerned by those that oppose them or abandon them until the order of Allah arrives ." (HR. Muslim)

3. QS. Al-Baqarah: 217:

وَلَا يَزَالُونَ يُقَاتِلُونَكُمْ حَتَّى يَرُدُّوكُمْ عَنْ دِينِكُمْ إِنِ اسْتَطَاعُوا

"And they will continue to fight you until they turn you back from your religion if they are able."

4. QS. Ali Imran: 118

قَدْ بَدَتِ الْبَغْضَاءُ مِنْ أَفْوَاهِهِمْ وَمَا تُخْفِي صُدُورُهُمْ أَكْبَرُ

"Hatred has already appeared from their mouths, and what their breasts conceal is greater."

There are many other verses that express the hatred and enmity of the kafir towards Islam. If they can afford it, they would surely make the move to convert (make murtad) all the Islamic ummah or sweep them over until they are extinct from this earth. Due to that, Allah Subhanahu wa Ta'ala ordered the Islamic ummah to prepare the physical strengths in order to confront the kafireen who are always envious and hostile towards them.

Allah Ta'ala says,

وَأَعِدُّوا لَهُمْ مَا اسْتَطَعْتُمْ مِنْ قُوَّةٍ وَمِنْ رِبَاطِ الْخَيْلِ تُرْهِبُونَ بِهِ عَدُوَّ اللَّهِ وَعَدُوَّكُمْ وَآَخَرِينَ مِنْ دُونِهِمْ لَا تَعْلَمُونَهُمُ اللَّهُ يَعْلَمُهُمْ

 "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 and others besides them whom you do not know [but] whom Allah knows." (QS. Al-Anfal: 60)

The content of this verse is very clear, Allah commands the believers to prepare all the strengths that they can afford, whether it is the strength of the mind, body, weaponry or any of its kind that could be utilized for fighting the kafir people who are never resting and always endeavoring to fight and destroy the religion of Islam and its adherents. The purpose is, so that the intentions of the kafir to fight and finish off the Muslims do not materialize, because of their trepidation and fear of seeing the power of the Muslims. This is because, if the Islamic ummah possess the strengths and abilities to fight a war, it would make the enemies from amongst the kafireen and munafiqeen think twice to launch an attack. On the other hand, if they see the Islamic ummah weak, not possessing the strength and not training militarily that they look incapable of expelling and resisting the enemies, then they will be eager to fight the Islamic ummah.

This is according to the word of Allah Ta'ala:

". . and take precaution and carry arms. The kafir wish you would neglect your weapons and your baggage so they could come down upon you in one [single] attack." (QS. An- Nisa': 102)

In conclusion, the Muslimeens must start preparing for jihad by first doing physical trainings, readying of the war equipments and making efforts for the perfection of the jihad fie sabilillah.

Wallahu a'lam bil sowab.
