A Sincerity To The Enemy: Shirk And Kufr, The Suu Dai'es Or Ulama's - Mujahidun Assessments

19 January 2011

By Al-Ikhwah Al-Mujahidun

All praises belong to Allah, Rabbul ‘Alamin, may salawat and salam be showered upon Rasulullah, his family, his sahabahs, as well as the people who follow them well until the Day of Judgement.

Wa ba'du:

In these sheets of paper, I would like to express my sincerity to anyone who reads it from among those who claim to be Muslim, who either consciously or unconsciously, have fallen into disbelief (kufr), idolatry (shirk) and the obvious nullifiers of one's Islam, especially those from among the enforcers of the man-made laws (the UUD or Constitution, and the laws derived from it) or those who give their loyalty to that man-made laws, with the hope that they become aware of what exactly it is they are doing, then pull themselves out of it and quit it for the sake of attaining the pleasure of Allah Ta'ala and be prevented from abiding in hell.

The proof of my sincerity is that, I do not ask for any reward or payment – except the pleasure of Allah Ta'ala – from you all, in fact I could even be treated badly by some of you guys, as a result of this paper which could offend you, but I pray that some of you may open your hearts to it, to understand and practice it. And in any case, it is not appropriate for you to be angry with me because, is it appropriate for someone to get angry at the person who tells him that there is dirt on his body? He should be grateful to him instead.

Know that the main matter, the primary capital of one's Islam and the very first duty that Allah enjoins upon mankind, to learn and practice before Salat, zakat, sawm, hajj and other ibaadah, is to be kafir towards the thaghut and to purify the tawheed towards Allah Ta'ala. And that is the purpose of creation, the purpose of the missions of the Mesengers and the revelation of His Books,

وَمَا خَلَقْتُ الْجِنَّ وَالْإِنسَ إِلَّا لِيَعْبُدُونِ

"And I did not create the jinn and mankind except to worship Me." [Adz-Dzariyat: 56] i.e. except to worship Me alone.

وَلَقَدْ بَعَثْنَا فِي كُلِّ أُمَّةٍ رَّسُولاً أَنِ اعْبُدُواْ اللّهَ وَاجْتَنِبُواْ الطَّاغُوتَ

"And We certainly sent into every nation a messenger, [saying], 'Worship Allah and avoid Thaghut.'" [An-Nahl: 36]

Kafir towards the thaghut and iman or acknowledging the oneness of Allah Ta'ala (tawheed) constitute the greatest Islamic bond, that no person may be safe from the hell without holding firmly to it, and all ibaadah, be it Salat, zakat, sawm, hajj, jihad and others, will not be accepted without it, because it's the only Islamic bond that is guaranteed to not be broken, while as for the other bonds or ibaadah, they are not enough to guarantee safety from hell without being kafir towards thaghut and iman towards Allah.

فَمَنْ يَكْفُرْ بِالطَّاغُوتِ وَيُؤْمِن بِاللّهِ فَقَدِ اسْتَمْسَكَ بِالْعُرْوَةِ الْوُثْقَىَ لاَ انفِصَامَ لَهَا

"Whoever disbelieves in Thaghut and believes in Allah has grasped the most trustworthy handhold that never breaks." [Al-Baqarah: 256]

وَالَّذِينَ اجْتَنَبُوا الطَّاغُوتَ أَن يَعْبُدُوهَا وَأَنَابُوا إِلَى اللَّهِ لَهُمُ الْبُشْرَى فَبَشِّرْ عِبَادِ

"But those who have avoided Thaghut, lest they worship it, and turned back to Allah - for them are good tidings. So give good tidings to My servants." [Az-Zumar: 17]

In that verse, Allah Ta'ala gives precedence to the attitude of kafir towards thaghut and avoiding them, over the attitude of iman towards Allah and returning to Him. This is no other than an emphasis on the importance of the attitude of kafir towards thaghut in the realization of the laa ilaaha illallaah, where the iman towards Allah Ta'ala has no benefit without kufr (kafir) towards thaghut. Because indeed the Shahadah of لا إله إلا الله consists of two pillars: namely لا إله in which the meaning is kafir towards thaghut or avoiding them, and إلا الله in which the meaning is iman towards Allah or worshiping Him. When one of them is performed, but the other is not then the Shahadah of لا إله إلا الله is not yet valid, although a person is claiming (of already performing) it, just as the salat has many pillars and when a majority of them are done but the pillar of sujud is not done, then a person's salat is not valid, though he claims of already performing salat.

Al-Imam Sulaiman Ibnu Abdillah Ibnu Muhammad rahimahullah said:

ومجرد النطق بلفظ الشهادة من غير علم بمعناها ولاعمل بمقتضاها من التزام التوحيد وترك الشرك الأكبر والكفر بالطاغوت فإن ذلك غير نافع بالإجماع

"just the pronunciation of the kalimah shahadah without knowing its meaning and without practicing its consequences in the form of a commitment to tawheed, leaving the big shirk and kufr towards thaghut, then indeed it (pronunciation of shahadah) is not beneficial based on the ijma (agreement reached by the ulama's)." [Shaikh Ali Al-Khudlair's Kitab Al-Haqaiq who quoted from Taisir Al-Aziz Al-Hamid]

Whereas, included amongst the thaghut which you must deny and the worship of which you must avoid, so that the shahadah that you declared becomes valid, is the man-made laws and their inventors, just as Allah Ta'ala says:

أَلَمْ تَرَ إِلَى الَّذِينَ يَزْعُمُونَ أَنَّهُمْ آمَنُواْ بِمَا أُنزِلَ إِلَيْكَ وَمَا أُنزِلَ مِن قَبْلِكَ يُرِيدُونَ أَن يَتَحَاكَمُواْ إِلَى الطَّاغُوتِ وَقَدْ أُمِرُواْ أَن يَكْفُرُواْ بِهِ

"Have you not seen those who claim to have believed in what was revealed to you, [O Muhammad], and what was revealed before you? They wish to refer legislation to Thaghut, while they were commanded to reject it." [An-Nisa: 60]

Here, Allah Ta'ala mentions the referenced laws other than the law of Allah, as thaghut, whether it is the laws, or the human or institution that makes them. And the iman of the people who abandon the law of Allah and instead refer to the made-made law, is no more than just a claim, and their acts of referring to that law is contrary to the attitude of kafir towards thaghut which has been prescribed. And their acts of referring to that law is an ibaadah towards the thaghut, because ibaadah has many forms, just like sujud, ruku', do'a, nadzar and slaughtering are ibaadah, then so is obedience and loyalty to the law, it is an ibaadah towards the maker of that law, as what Allah Ta'ala says about the Christians:

اتَّخَذُواْ أَحْبَارَهُمْ وَرُهْبَانَهُمْ أَرْبَابًا مِّن دُونِ اللّه

"They have taken their scholars and monks as lords besides Allah…" [At-Taubah: 31]

Because, the deification and ibaadah (worship) towards the 'alim ulama's and monks committed by the Christians is not by the sujud, ruku' and salat given to them, but because they obey and give loyalty to the laws that they invented, whether in terms of making halal (permission) or making haram (prohibition), such as in the tafseer of the Prophet Salallahu ‘alaihi wa Sallam on that verse when he said to ‘Adiy Ibnu Hatim:

أليسوا يحلون ما حرم الله فتحلونه ويحرمون ما أحل 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 ‘Adiy said: "Yes, it's true."

Then Rasulullah SAW said: "So that is the worship toward them."

And the same goes with the issue of replacing the sanction for adulterers which should be by stoning, but the Jewish leaders agreed to replace them with the laws of their own invention i.e. tahmim (smudging of the face) and flogging, thus verses of the Qur'an were sent down, which includes:

وَمَن لَّمْ يَحْكُم بِمَا أَنزَلَ اللّهُ فَأُوْلَئِكَ هُمُ الْكَافِرُونَ

"And whoever does not judge by what Allah has revealed - then it is those who are the disbelievers (kafir)." [Al-Maidah: 44]

In fact, adherence or loyalty to one man-made law alone is shirk which invalidates one's Islam, just as Allah says:

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

"And do not eat of that upon which the name of Allah has not been mentioned, for indeed, it is grave disobedience. And indeed do the devils inspire their allies [among men] to dispute with you. And if you were to obey them, indeed, you would be associators [of others with Him] (mushrik)." [Al-An'am: 121]

Where it is explained in this verse, as the reason for it to be revealed, the debate by the polytheists against the Muslims, while urging them to approve the legalization/making halal of carcasses, thus Allah Ta'ala cautions the Muslims from it, while warning them that when the Muslims obey them, even in just one ruling, i.e. making halal of the carcasses, then they would also become mushrik. Because the nuzul of this verse is narrated by Al-Hakim in Al-Mustadrak from Ibnu ‘Abbas RA with a saheeh sanad.

In fact, the obedience and fidelity to the man-made laws or the laws of the thaghut can make one murtad, even to just one ruling, as Allah says:

إِنَّ الَّذِينَ ارْتَدُّوا عَلَى أَدْبَارِهِم مِّن بَعْدِ مَا تَبَيَّنَ لَهُمُ الْهُدَى الشَّيْطَانُ سَوَّلَ لَهُمْ وَأَمْلَى لَهُمْ. ذَلِكَ بِأَنَّهُمْ قَالُوا لِلَّذِينَ كَرِهُوا مَا نَزَّلَ اللَّهُ سَنُطِيعُكُمْ فِي بَعْضِ الْأَمْرِ وَاللَّهُ يَعْلَمُ إِسْرَارَهُمْ

"Indeed, those who reverted back [to disbelief] after guidance had become clear to them - Satan enticed them and prolonged hope for them. That is because they said to those who disliked what Allah sent down, 'We will obey you in part of the matter.' And Allah knows what they conceal." [Muhammad: 25-26]

When being faithful and obedient to just one thaghut law is a cause of murtad, then what about the people who swear allegiance to all the made-made laws and rulings?

And what about the people who arrest or investigate the people who violate that thaghut laws and drag them to court?

How about the people who ensnare and charge those people who violated that thaghut laws, as well as prosecuting them based on that thaghut laws?

And how about the people who sentenced them according to that law?

And how about the people who do not confine and do not release people from prison except with reference to the guidelines of that thaghut laws?

If you are men of understanding, you will surely know the answer. Then, what is the solution?

The answer is in the verse of Allah Ta'ala:

فَفِرُّوا إِلَى اللَّهِ

"So flee to Allah.." [Adz-Dzariyat: 50]

Yes, flee and leave the jobs and positions of office which are shirk and kufr, and actualize the realization of tawheed by quitting them….

Free yourselves from other law-makers besides Allah and from the loyalty to their rules now, while there is still life before the coming of the days when the liberation from them will not be helpful anymore:

حَتَّى إِذَا جَاءنَا قَالَ يَا لَيْتَ بَيْنِي وَبَيْنَكَ بُعْدَ الْمَشْرِقَيْنِ فَبِئْسَ الْقَرِينُ. وَلَن يَنفَعَكُمُ الْيَوْمَ إِذ ظَّلَمْتُمْ أَنَّكُمْ فِي الْعَذَابِ مُشْتَرِكُونَ

"Until, when he comes to Us [at Judgement], he says [to his companion], 'Oh, I wish there was between me and you the distance between the east and west - how wretched a companion.' And never will it benefit you that Day, when you have wronged, that you are [all] sharing in the punishment." [Az Zukhruf: 38-39]

On that day then you will be sorry of why you have not become a defender of the teachings of Allah and His Rasul, and you will regret of why, while being in this world, you are instead obeying the leaders and government who are not ruling with the laws of Allah Ta'ala:

يَوْمَ تُقَلَّبُ وُجُوهُهُمْ فِي النَّارِ يَقُولُونَ يَا لَيْتَنَا أَطَعْنَا اللَّهَ وَأَطَعْنَا الرَّسُولَا. وَقَالُوا رَبَّنَا إِنَّا أَطَعْنَا سَادَتَنَا وَكُبَرَاءنَا فَأَضَلُّونَا السَّبِيلَا

"The Day their faces will be turned about in the Fire, they will say, 'How we wish we had obeyed Allah and obeyed the Messenger.' And they will say, 'Our Lord, indeed we obeyed our masters and our dignitaries, and they led us astray from the [right] way.'" [Al Ahzab: 66-67]

Then that's when they hope to return to the world, not to perform salat, sawm, zakat or hajj because while in the dunya, there were many of them who diligently perform salat, sawm, hajj and zakat as well, but they want to return to the world to free themselves from their leaders, their government and superiors, as well as their invented laws, which has plunged them into kufr:

إِذْ تَبَرَّأَ الَّذِينَ اتُّبِعُواْ مِنَ الَّذِينَ اتَّبَعُواْ وَرَأَوُاْ الْعَذَابَ وَتَقَطَّعَتْ بِهِمُ الأَسْبَابُ. وَقَالَ الَّذِينَ اتَّبَعُواْ لَوْ أَنَّ لَنَا كَرَّةً فَنَتَبَرَّأَ مِنْهُمْ كَمَا تَبَرَّؤُواْ مِنَّا كَذَلِكَ يُرِيهِمُ اللّهُ أَعْمَالَهُمْ حَسَرَاتٍ عَلَيْهِمْ وَمَا هُم بِخَارِجِينَ مِنَ النَّارِ

"[And they should consider that] when those who have been followed disassociate themselves from those who followed [them], and they [all] see the punishment, and cut off from them are the ties [of relationship]. Those who followed will say, 'If only we had another turn [at worldly life] so we could disassociate ourselves from them as they have disassociated themselves from us.' Thus will Allah show them their deeds as regrets upon them. And they are never to emerge from the Fire." [Al-Baqarah: 166-167]

So while there is a chance now, get out of your job which is shirk, as well as kafir! Do not worry about not getting rizq because the One Who gives rizq is only Allah Ta'ala, not His creatures whoever they are. Don't you think that if you leave now you will not be able to have anything to eat (survive) and support your family, be assured that when the kafir who oppose Allah are provided rizq by Allah Ta'ala, then how could the people who possess tawheed not given rizq? But Allah Ta'ala does test His slaves who have tawheed with the trials of the world in the form of hunger, fear and others, so be patient in living it.

This is the sincerity coming from me to you all, without expecting anything in return from you guys...

Don't be deceived by the suu dai'e or ulama's who embellish the truth of your jobs and allow them, because they are "con men" who lead you astray, whether because of wanting a little piece of the dunya that you have with you or out of fear of your wrath if they don't justify your jobs…

If you do not believe in I have conveyed, then let us together wait for the verdict of Allah on the day of the final judgment…

وصلى الله على النبي محمد واله وصحبه وسلم
والحمد لله رب العالمين
