Secular Mustafa Kemal Atatürk

photo_2017-07-28_23-41-51

Kemal (Mustafa Kemal Atatürk) was virulently antireligious and saw Islam as the primary source of his country’s backwardness. “I have no religion, and at times I wish all religions at the bottom of the sea,” he is reported to have said once. “He is a weak ruler who needs religion to uphold his government; it is as if he would catch his people in a trap.”

Systematically, therefore, he set out to dismantle Islam’s grip on Turkish society. In 1924, with only slight modifications, the Swiss Civil Code was adopted and replaced the Sharia (Islamic Law).

The Difference Between Now And Then

Dr. Abdullah Azzam says:

“The Islamic movement, which has revealed its determination through armed resistance against Dawud, the Afghani president, was not capable on some days of merely imagining
this exalted summit to which it has (now) attained through blessed jihad.”

And he said: “The difference is enormous between those days in which the engineer Habib al-Rahman, the martyr the secretary-general for the movement drew a Kalashnikov on paper and then explained it in the depths of dark rooms to those whom he educated to love jihad and between these days in which children play with the rocket launcher RPG which destroys tanks.”

Politics

“They said that submission is politics
So show your submission to them
But sweeter than the taste of submission
In my mouth, is the taste of pure poison,
if the enemies steal my kingdom
And the people hand me over
My heart will still be between its ribs
And the ribs won’t have handed over the heart
And I would not be robbed of my noble nature
For is high honor to be plundered?

Politics without constants means nothing but downfall. So, we must hold on to our constants, whether we are practicing politics or plunging into battle

The Story Of A Tranquil Soul

photo_2017-07-26_00-06-31

My first meeting with Shaykh Mansoor al Shami (رحمه الله), a Mujahid scholar and member of the Central Shariah Committee of Tandheem Qa’edatul Jihad, took place in Khurasan in 2005. I was participating in a course in the training camp when he came to
spend a day with the participants of the course. In this meeting, Al Qa’eda’s military head, Shaykh Khalid Habib was also accompanying Shaykh Mansoor al Shami (May Allah have mercy on them). After the Asr prayer, Shaykh Mansoor delivered a brief lecture and exhorted the brothers to rectify their deeds. After this an informal session of questions and answers started. During the discussion, a question was raised about takfeer. Shaykh Khalid Habib commented, “There are two words which irritate me greatly: Takfeer and Talaq (divorce).”

Hearing this, Shaykh Mansoor al Shami interrupted him and said: “What you have said is not correct. Both these words are terminologies given to us by the Shariah. If they are used at the right place and in the right manner, expressing distaste for them will not be right. Therefore, you should not express your distaste in such general terms.”

May Allah shower Shaykh Khalid Habib with His mercy! I saw that he was listening quietly and obediently to the words of the Shaykh with his head bowed down. There were no signs of displeasure on his face, despite the fact that he was senior to Shaykh Mansoor in terms of military leadership, experience and time spent in Jihad. Such immense respect for religious knowledge and scholars from a central military leader and showing such humility in front of a scholar was such a profound and practical lesson that could never be understood by reading lengthy books.

Swift Retribution

A series of explosions in one of the reactors of the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant led to the disaster of April 26, 1986

During the Afghan Jihad, Russians descended with their helicopters upon an Afghani village whose men were in the mountains fighting in the jihad. There were only old men, women, and children in the village. They killed the old men and the children and made the women board the aircrafts and they stripped them of their clothes and threw them, alive, from the helicopters.

When the Islamic fighters (Mujahedeen) returned, they took off their clothes in order to cover their women, their sisters, and their mothers. They raised their palms in prayer against the Russians and after a short period of time God wiped out many (of the Russians) in the Chernobyl disaster.

Management Of Savagery

“Management of Savagery: The Most Critical Stage Through Which the Islamic Nation Will Pass” by Abu Bakr Naji

In one of the battles of Afghanistan in opposition to the Russians, the men gathered the women, the elderly, and the children in a mosque in order to minimize the damage of the bombing. Bombs fell upon the mosque and killed all those who were in it except for a little girl who remained in the lap of her grandmother whose head had been split open and its contents dangled down in front of her grand daughter.

One of the Arab mujahids began to calm the child who was raving out of fright. The mujahid was crying and one of the Afghanis said to him: “What is making you cry?” The Arab said to him: “Have you no feelings? They are your people and your relatives.” The Afghani said: “This is war, and you and I will die like them some day.”

Exploiting The Situation

On a famous occasion during the civil war, Caesar tripped when disembarking from a ship on the shores of Africa and fell on his face. With his talent for improvisation, he spread out his arms and embraced the earth as a symbol of conquest. By quick thinking he turned a terrible ‘omen’ of failure into one of victory.

Necessity Of Trenches

photo_2017-07-17_21-54-07

“When one recalls that the Prophet (صَلَّى اللّٰهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّم) – the most honourable of the creation, whose protection Allah (swt) had guarenteed – participated with the companions in digging the trench, carrying on his shoulders soil, his hair and chest all covered in dust, صَلَّى اللّٰهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّم , and the companions proclaimed aloud that we are the one who have vowed to perform Jihad with Mohammed (pbuh) until our last breath .. [when you take this into account] .. then, we should be the first ones to live up to the example of the Prophet by making use of the means available to us generally and specifically with regards to the digging of trenches.

So we request all brothers (Islamic Fighters) to pay due importance to this matter, and exert their efforts in this, each according to his ability, May Allah reward you greatly.

There Is No Meaning To Our Life If We Are Like This

“There is no meaning to life when you see the Jews do all sorts of things to your brothers, women and children. We fast a day or two, and shout in the demonstrations until our throats are in tatters, then go back home as if we have averted harm from the children and lifted the blockade from Gaza and stopped the killing of the people of Palastene. No, demonstrations must be followed by explosions and civil disobedience by military anger, and we must cut aid to the Zionist Crusade and kill those of the Crusaders whom we find on our land, and destroy the Western interests until Europe and America stop their support of the Jews and stop the killing there and order their agents, the treasonous rulers, to open the crossings to Gaza and Palastene.

And the people must continue to apply pressure without pause until all of Palastene is conquered, and mustn’t be distracted by the imaginary solutions which stop the massacres today only for them to begin tomorrow stronger and deadlier and for us to sell the blood of today for the peace of tomorrow. The vendetta is great, so don’t abandon it. O Allah, conquer through us Bayt al Maqdis and the land of the two Sanctuaries. O Allah, establish through us the state of Islam and honour us with that”

– Abu Baseer Nasir al Wuhayshi , Former leader of Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula.
