“It is because of our Ideology. This is the reality of the war waged by the Jews and Christians against the Muslim communities through out the world. It is an ideological conflict in its essence. It is not a conflict over a control of territory or economic resources, or for military domination; nor is it because of the false banners they raise; they are raising these banners to hide their true intentions and mislead us from the reality of the conflict.
If we believe them and fall prey to their deceptions, then we have none but ourselves to blame for the consequences.”
A female student of Jamia Hafsa Madrassa in Pakistan narrated her experience during the July 2007 Lal Masjid Massacre orchestrated by the Pakistan Army against Muslims:
“Our companions, our friends, our younger and elder sisters: where are they? When I came out of the Madrassa, there were 100 bodies of our sisters inside the Madrassa. Today, their parents are telling us over the phone that they haven’t found their daughters yet. Almost 95 of our brothers were there, and we counted their bodies ourselves; and believe me, when we got out of there, our hands were scarlet with blood.
We were screaming that today we have decorated our hands with the henna of blood. We used to hear in the past that our sisters in Kashmir adorn their hands with the henna of blood, but we witnessed the practical demonstration of this inside Lal Masjid. So when I got out, my clothes were drenched in blood. My hands – by lifting the bodies of my brothers – by lifting the bodies of my sisters – my hands were scarlet with blood.”
The Ottoman Sultan Bayezid I, was due to testify in court before the judge Shamsuddin Ferani. Sultan Beyazid stood humbly in court awaiting to give his testimony, when judge Shamsuddin announced:
“We shall not accept your testimony, as you do not attend the congregational prayer with the Muslims in the Mosque, and a person who does not attend the congregational prayer without a legitimate excuse, could lie in his testimony.”
Everyone in court was astounded by the incident, as the judge’s words were an insult to the sultan. The guards awaited a signal from the Sultan to behead the judge, but the Sultan did not say anything. He left the courtroom with his head down in humbleness, satisfied with the judge’s judgment.
Dhahir Baybars requested a fatwa from the scholars that money should be collected in order to prepare an army to fight the Tatars in 658 H. Every single scholar issued the fatwa except for An-Nawawi who said: “I will not provide you with such a fatwa”.
Dhahir asked: “Why not? I want to purchase arms for this struggle, and you refuse to issue a fatwa for it?. The entire Ummah and religion will be exposed to loss.” He replied: “Because you came to us as a slave who owned nothing, and i see that you now own gardens, servants, slave girls, silver and gold. So, if you sell all of these things and still need money after that, I will issue the fatwa you seek”
He said: “Leave Sham”. And he left and went to a small village in Nawa (his hometown). The scholars came to Dhahir Baybars and said to him; ” The scholars of Sham are nothing without Muhi ad Din An – Nawawi.” He replied “Bring him back.” They then went to An – Nawawi and said: “Come back, oh Muhi ad Din”.
An – Nawawi said: “By Allah, I will not go back while Dhahir is in it,” and Allah fulfilled his oath: Dhahir died a month later, and An – Nawawi returned to Sham.
Sayyid Qutb describes the “American Islam”, that aims to undermine the project of Islamic empowerment by deliberately infecting key segments of the native population with a twisted, “reactionary” version of Islam, by saying:
“The Islam that America and it’s allies desire in the Middle East does not resist colonialism and tyranny, but rather resist communism only. They do not want Islam to govern and cannot abide it to rule, because when Islam governs it will raise a different breed of humans and will teach people that it is their duty to develop their power and expel the colonialists.
American Islam is consulted on the issues of birth control, the entry of women into parliament, and on matters that impair ritual ablutions. However it is not consulted on the matter of our social and economic affairs and fiscal system, nor is it consulted on political and national affairs and our connections with colonialism.”
Muslims had a Caliphate that defended them, and which, despite all its corruption and deviation, used everything at its disposal to confront the Crusader Zionist assault on the realms of Islam. Israel was setup when the Caliphate State was defeated in the first World War, that defeat which occurred because of the betrayal of the Caliphate State by the Sharif Husain and his sons, their throwing themselves at the feet of the British and their commendation of the spirit of ethnic nationalism alien to Islam, under the supervision, organization and observation of the British intelligence agent Lawrence of Arabia.
When the Caliphate State was defeated, the British occupied Palestine and the Levant with the help of Arab traitors; and the British occupation was the true beginning of the Zionist entity.
Terry Holdbrooks was deployed to Guantánamo Bay detention camp(GITMO) in June 2003 as a 19 year old American soldier. During his training, Holdbrooks was told: “The prisoners in Guantanamo are the worst of the worst. They are terrorists. They are not men, they are animals. They hate you. Do not feel any sympathy or compassion.”
Upon arriving in Guantanamo, Holdbrooks was fascinated by the high morale of the Muslim inmates. He observed the way they prayed to God in the most stressful times, the way they washed up for every prayer, the way they endured abuse and smiled despite being tortured severely and dehumanized.
When he asked the detainees why they were still hanging on to their faith even though they were probably in the worst situation, they responded, “It is only Allah testing our deen, testing our faith. We can endure this.”
Holdbrooks grew very curious about Islam and Muslims. He started seizing every opportunity to speak to the prisoners as they shifted from their cells to interrogation rooms or when bringing them food. On 29 December 2003, six months into his time at Guantánamo, Holdbrooks (Now, Mustafa Abdullah) finally embraced Islam and is currently an anti – Guantánamo activist.
Dr Akram al Hijazi, Member of general secretariat of Muslim intellectuals, elaborates the actual purpose of American force interventions in Arabian Peninsula;
“The main reason they came is to be against Islam, they did not come for oil. There was no oil at that time except in a very limited way, because that was the beginning of it’s discovery.
They came because Islam is the only force which could stop the tyranny of super powers. Also because, Islam is a force full of life, driven by a dawah; the last words of Allah on earth among human. We are demanded by this dawah to deliver the words of Allah to his creations. So they stood to challenge Islam with great effort”.
