An Appeal … An Appeal … An Appeal … to the Armies in the Muslim Countries Is There Not a Righteous Man Amongst You Who Will Roar with His Weapons in Support of Palestine’s Al-Aqsa and Womenfolk?
The twenty-seventh of Shawwal 1438 AH is the second Friday that Muslims were unable to perform Salat ul-Juma’a at Al-Aqsa Mosque, in addition to that Friday when the Jews burned the Minbar (Pulpit) of Al-Aqsa in 1389 AH. It sets a dangerous precedent, since the liberation of Al-Quds by Salahudin from the Crusaders, when he performed the first Juma’a after the purification of Al-Quds from the filth of the Crusaders in 583 AH. These are the three times that Muslims could not perform Salat ul-Juma’a over more than eight centuries!! This shows the extent of the animosity of the Jewish entity against Islam and Muslims. They not only prevented them from worship but they also opened fire on their prayer congregations around Al-Aqsa Compound. Indeed, they are as Allah, Al-Qawee, Al-Azeez described,
﴿لَتَجِدَنَّ أَشَدَّ النَّاسِ عَدَاوَةً لِّلَّذِينَ آمَنُوا الْيَهُودَ وَالَّذِينَ أَشْرَكُوا﴾
“You will surely find the most intense of the people in animosity toward the believers to be the Jews and those who associate others with Allah” [Surah Al-Ma’ida: 5:82]
… Yet, on the other hand, the Egyptian president contacted Netanyahu, as did the Jordanian king and the Turkish president, all appealing for calm, whilst the Saudi king issued a statement expressing his sadness as to what is happening in the squares of Al-Aqsa Mosque. Their stance is pleading to the Jewish entity to allow the worshipers to pray in Al-Aqsa and to reduce the use of the electronic detector gates, whilst maintaining the protocols of inspection and searches. And similarly is the stance of the rest of the rulers in the Muslim countries, with a hushed voice and even a whisper, as if what is happening does not concern them at all, unashamed before Allah (swt), His Messenger (saaw) and the believers. Indeed, the Messenger (saaw) said the truth when he said:
«إنَّ مِمَّا أَدْرَكَ النَّاسُ مِنْ كَلَامِ النُّبُوَّةِ الْأُولَى: إذَا لَمْ تَسْتَحِ فَاصْنَعْ مَا شِئْت»
“What people realized from the words of the previous Prophethoods: If you have no shame, then do what you want”. (Extracted by Al-Bukhari from ‘Abdulah Ibn Mas’oud)
The problem of Al-Aqsa cannot be solved as long as the Jewish entity continues to usurp Palestine. The maximum that can be allowed under this entity is to allow prayer in Al Aqsa, under the weapons of the Jewish entity, upon their orders and with their permission. Their Minister of Internal Security stated that “Al-Aqsa is under the control of (Israel), it has the first and final say in opening and closing it.” And so he brags, the humiliated one, due to the subjugation of the rulers in the Muslim countries. The beginning of the crime was on the day that these rulers agreed with some of those whose hearts are diseased from the so-called rulers in the Palestinian Authority that Palestine is the issue of the Palestinian people alone. Then the rulers sat and watched the consequences with some sorrow or with none! And the best amongst them is the one who contacts the heads of the Jewish entity, calling upon them to alleviate the excessive violence towards the people of Palestine! Such are these rulers who support Palestine through the abandoning of Palestine, like the one who undoes the work, after all the effort has been put into it. Allah (swt) said,
﴿قَاتَلَهُمُ اللَّهُ أَنَّىٰ يُؤْفَكُونَ﴾
“May Allah destroy them; how are they deluded?”[Surah Al-Munafiqun 63: 4]
The Ruwaibida, ignorant rulers, of the Muslim countries are aware that the movements of the people of Palestine cannot eradicate the Jewish entity. They also realize that the problem of Al-Aqsa and all of Palestine cannot be solved except by eradicating that deformed entity, and eradicating it is only possible by an army that roars with its arms to uproot that entity. This is how the support should be for the Blessed Land, the blessed Bait ul Maqdis, the first of the two Qiblas and the third of the Haramayn that Muslims travel to, and this is how the victory will be achieved for the Muslim womenfolk in the blessed land of Palestine.
Is there not a righteous man in the Muslim armies, a man who roars with his weapon, accompanied by his brethren, chanting Takbirs, who rescues the womenfolk of Al-Aqsa that are attacked by these criminals in the squares of Al-Aqsa and around Al-Aqsa? Is there not a righteous man in the Muslim armies whose blood that is boiling in his veins compels him to lead his brigade towards Al-Aqsa and trample over the rulers standing in his way underfoot? Is there not in the Muslim armies a righteous man guided by the way of the Ansar of Allah and His Messenger, who will give victory to the sincere Dawah Carriers and supports Hizb ut Tahrir, to remove these rulers and establish the rule of Islam, the state of Islam, the Khilafah Rashidah (Righteous Caliphate), leading the Khilafah’s army to uproot that monstrous entity to achieve the Messenger of Allah’s glad-tidings? Muslim said in his Saheeh on the authority of Abu Hurayrah: The Messenger of Allah (saw) said:
«لَا تَقُومُ السَّاعَةُ حَتَّى يُقَاتِلَ الْمُسْلِمُونَ الْيَهُودَ، فَيَقْتُلُهُمُ الْمُسْلِمُونَ»…
“The Hour will not come until the Muslims fight the Jews, the Muslims will kill them…”
In another narration, he (saw) said:
«تُقَاتِلُكُمُ يَهُودُ، فَتُسَلَّطُونَ عَلَيْهِمْ»
“The Jews will fight you and you will dominate them.”
O Muslims: The armies of Muslims are from you, they are your sons, brothers and relatives, so push them to the truth that Allah has revealed, enlighten them with the light of Islam, so that they give victory to the Deen of Allah, and restore the legacy of the soldiers of Islam who uprooted the Crusaders from the land of Palestine and the land of Ash-Sham and uprooted the Tartars from the lands of Islam. They were the beacon for the world, with the good that they spread and the justice they had established.
If the Muslim armies want to become again as those great soldiers once were, they only need to support the Deen of Allah and support Al-Aqsa and its precincts, and trample over the rulers by removing them from their paths. Allah will mention them in the “pages of light” and they will have power in this world and be in the Hereafter in the seat of Truth with the Most Able Sovereign (swt):
﴿إِنَّ الْمُتَّقِينَ فِي جَنَّاتٍ وَنَهَرٍ * فِي مَقْعَدِ صِدْقٍ عِندَ مَلِيكٍ مُّقْتَدِرٍ﴾
“Indeed, the righteous will be among gardens and rivers, In a seat of honor near a Sovereign, Perfect in Ability.” [Surah Al-Qamar: 54-55]
O Armies in the Muslim Land:
Al-Aqsa is crying for help and Al-Aqsa’s precincts are crying for help. Al-Aqsa will not be liberated from its captivity except by removing the entity of the Jews. The movements of the people of Palestine although heroic and great will not remove the entity of the Jews, even though they are doing their duty as best as they can, but they are calling you for help and support, so help and support them, and answer the call of Allah, Al-Aziz, Al-Hakeem:
﴿وَإِنِ اسْتَنصَرُوكُمْ فِي الدِّينِ فَعَلَيْكُمُ النَّصْرُ…﴾
“And if they seek help of you for the religion, then you must help” [Al-Anfal: 72]
O Armies in the Muslim Land: O Muslims:
We are reassured that we will uproot the Jewish entity, so be the army that uproots it, for blessed is that army.
We are reassured that the Khilafah will return after this forcible rule will, Allah willing, the Prophet (saw) said:
«ثُمَّ تَكُونُ مُلْكًا جَبْرِيَّةً، فَتَكُونُ مَا شَاءَ اللَّهُ أَنْ تَكُونَ، ثُمَّ يَرْفَعُهَا إِذَا شَاءَ أَنْ يَرْفَعَهَا، ثُمَّ تَكُونُ خِلاَفَةٌ عَلَى مِنْهَاجِ النُّبُوَّةٍ ثُمَّ سَكَتَ»
“Then there will a forcible rule, as long as Allah wants, then Allah will remove if He so wants, then there will be a Khilafah on the Method of Prophethood, and then he (saw) was silent”.
(Narrated by Imam Ahmad from Hudhayfah ibn al-Yaman.) So be the army that will support Hizb ut Tahrir working for its return and blessed is that army.
We are reassured Ash-Sham and its jewel, Al-Quds (Jerusalem) will be restored by the army of Islam to Dar Al-Islam. Imam Ahmad narrated in his Musnad from the Hadeeth of Salamah Ibn Nafil (may Allah be pleased with him) that the Prophet (saw) said:
«أَلَا إِنَّ عُقْرَ دَارِ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ الشَّامُ»
“The House of the Believers is Ash-Sham.”
In a narration by Na’im Bin Hammad in the Book of Fitan (strife) by Katheer Bin Murrah:
«عُقْرُ دَارِ الإِسْلامِ بِالشَّامِ»
“The Abode of Islam is in Ash-Sham”
… And Ash-Sham and its jewel Al-Quds will be restored, Allah willing, full of pride and domination, so be the army that will restore it, and blessed is that army.
O Muslim Armies and the relatives of the Muslim Armies: Hasten to the support of the Deen of Allah … Hasten to the support of Bait ul Maqdis and its surroundings… Hasten to support the womenfolk of the Blessed Land … Hasten to uproot the Jewish entity… Hasten to the support of the workers to establish the righteous Khilafah … Hasten to restore Ash-Sham and its jewel Al-Quds to be the abode of Islam … Hasten to the glory of this world and the Hereafter … and this is better than what they plan (for you). Allah Al-Aziz Al Hakeem (the Mighty, the Wise) said:
﴿يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا اسْتَجِيبُوا لِلَّهِ وَلِلرَّسُولِ إِذَا دَعَاكُمْ لِمَا يُحْيِيكُمْ وَاعْلَمُوا أَنَّ اللَّهَ يَحُولُ بَيْنَ الْمَرْءِ وَقَلْبِهِ وَأَنَّهُ إِلَيْهِ تُحْشَرُونَ﴾
“O you who have believed, respond to Allah and to the Messenger when he calls you to that which gives you life. And know that Allah intervenes between a man and his heart and that to Him you will be gathered.” [Al-Anfal: 24]
