A Risaalah From Behind The Iron Bars - Jihad Needs People Who Are Trustworthy
22 January 2011
By Al-Ikhwah Al-Mujahidun
risaalah (message) was personally
written by akhuna
Muhammad Jibriel Abdul Rahman, may Allah protect him.
This is a risalaah
which arouses the heart and burns the spirit in
carrying out the mission of da'wah and jihad which are
not easy and could only be handled by the chosen
Glory be to Allah! For all the blessings that He gives
abundantly to mankind. Salawat and salam be ever poured down on our great
exemplar, Muhammad Salallahu ‘Alaihi Wasalam
(SAW) along with his family and Sahabahs.
Ikhwani wa Akhwati Fillah whom I love
for the sake of Allah…
Subhanallah, time passes so fast, it
has been almost 3 months that I have been in this
Palace of Uzlah. With the various
tests and trials that have been undergone,
Alhamdulillah, I have gone through them all
well and may Allah gives rewards to us all. Trials and
adversities are no excuses for us to not become a
Mujahid and Mujahidah Fie Sabilillah.
Yes, this path of Jihad is difficult and winding. It
is not easy to be Istiqomah and always
be on the right corridor. There are always things that
will make us futur and weak in
treading it. Loyalty can turn into disloyalty,
promises can only remain as pieces of writings,
honesty can turn into hypocrisy.
Mankind have different levels of iman,
O my friends, sometimes iman can
increase rapidly when there are honest people who are
willing to provide motivations so that we can remain
Istiqomah and keep on being strong
through all the obstacles in this struggle. But there
is also the opposite which can make our iman
dwindle, the cause is the intensifying carnal desires,
which give birth to the seedlings of Nifaq
(Hypocrisy), which give importance to own selves than
to others. Their integrity has been sold by their own
carnal desires. The promises which have been engraved
all these while, to unite with the Caravans of Mujahid,
are only empty promises now. Supposedly all this
happened due to the weakness iman, or
the greed of the world has already enveloped their
selves. To the point that, the path they had trodden
could only reach as far as at the crossroad.
Hasbunallahu wa Ni'mal Wakiil….
Ikhwan wa Akhwati Fillah …
No human being is perfect, it's true. But we must
always try to become the best human in the sight of
the Creator, Allah ‘Azza wa Jalla…
How to go about it:
* Be Istiqomah and patient in fording
all the problems: no matter how big the problem is,
there must be a way out. Man is unable to do anything
without His permission. Let the evil people terrorize,
make trouble, in fact even make you scared to fight,
remember, Allah will always be with the people who are
patient and Istiqomah.
From Abu Amr – some say Abu Amrah - Sufyan bin
Abdillah Ats-Tsaqafi radhiallahu ‘anhu. He said, "O Rasulullah, tell me a word about
Islam, which I cannot turn to others except you."
Rasulullah SAW said, "Say: 'I
believe in Allah, then be istiqomah." (HR
How can you want Jannah, but are still
unsure of what you choose, there are still this excuse
and that excuse when the given mandate can not be
done. We can only give excuses without bearing out
results. Fearing the human beings more than fearing
Allah. Wake Up Brothers…!!! Don't be a Munafiq.
From Abu Muhammad Al-Hasan bin Ali bin Abu Thalib,
grandson of Rasulullah SAW and his favorite
radhiallahu ‘anhuma, he said: "I have
memorized (the saying) from Rasulullah SAW: 'Leave something that doubt you into
something that does not doubt you.'"
(HR. Tirmidzi and Nasa'i. Tirmidzi said: This Hadith
is Hasan Saheeh)
Many chosen people of Allah have been Shaheed,
many more of them will be Shaheed, but
it is the path they have trodden that will bring them
to Firdawsil ‘Alaa. Insha
May this bit of advice be able to serve as a mutual
reflection for us all. Let's fix ourselves if there
are matters of Khilaf (blunders) and
wrong steps, while there is still time to fix it. Insha Allah.
