* From the same people who accuse us of ‘hating Muslims’ for not wanting to become like them…
“We will no longer be part of the deliberate attempt to keep the public confused on the issue of terrorism. We will not be part of the apologetic Muslim leaders who blame their own community for terrorism.”
* Telling the truth might shake up the sleeping kuffar’s, sez Hugh:
I gather from the article that what the Muslims at MCPAK have in mind is no more smiling taqiyya, no more sly inveiglements and remarks designed to confuse, but rather an entirely unapologetic and forthright statement of what Islam demands, what Islam inculcates, what Islam looks like when the make-up or maquillage is wiped off, after the Infidels have gone home from the Mosque Outreach Night.
If they tell the truth, it sounds like this:
Spying For TheÂ Kuffar
Spying For, Aiding, and Imitating, the Kuffar
“Those who seek dignity and honour should know that they derive from Allah (alone).” 35:10 Interpretation of Meaning
All Praise and All Thanks are for Allah (Subhanahu wa Ta’ala) to whom we shall all return to be judged on The Last Day.
In the past few months, we have witnessed yet again the arrogance of the kuffar, and yet again seen their aim of dividing us in order to make it easier for them to achieve their stated goal of changing Deen Al-Islam. For, not long ago, a certain arrogant kaffir called John Reid asked Muslims residing in Britain to spy on their brothers and sisters on behalf of the kuffar.
Since the Jumaadi Al-Thaani attacks, the kuffar have made repeated attempts to recruit Muslims to spy on their brothers and sisters, as they often repeat their kaffir mantra that what the kuffar call “moderate Muslims” have a duty to report to the kaffir authorities any Muslim engaging in what the kuffar call “extremist activities”, or expressing “extremist views”.
Considering these on-going attempts, by the kuffar, to divide Muslim against Muslim and to get Muslims to aid the kuffar, it is important that we not only understand what the ruling is on spying for the kuffar. but also understand the ploys used by the kuffar to try and persuade Muslims to work for them and aid them.
The Ruling on Spying:
It is haram for a Muslim to aid the kuffar against the Muslims.
Sheikh Muhammad ibn Abdul Wahab – Rahimahullah – gathered ten actions that negate one’s Islam (Nawaqid ul-’Ashr), the eighth one of which states: “Assisting the disbelievers (against the believers) (Mudhaharatul Mushrikeen) and supporting them against the believers is one of the actions that negates of one’s Islam… “
“Whoever expresses Tawalli towards the disbelievers (Tawalli Kuffar) and supports and helps them against the believers, then such constitutes apostasy by one’s (proceeding) actions. It is obligatory to apply the rules of apostasy upon such a person as is proved by The Book, the Sunnah and the consensus of the scholars.” Sheikh Abdullah ibn Humaid: Ad-Durrar 15/479
Spying for the kuffar is aiding the kuffar, and is haram and any Muslim who does such a thing has negated their Islam. Allah Subhanahu wa Ta’ala says:
“Do not spy on each other, and do not complain about each other.” 49:12 Interpretation of Meaning
Furthermore, it was narrated by Abu Huraira that the Prophet, Muhammad (salla Allahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said:
“Do not give in to suspicion, for suspicion is a dishonourable kind of speech, and do not seek to find faults in others. Do not spy on one another…” Bukhari, Vol 8, Book 73, 92 (See also Bukhari, Vol 7, Book 62, 74)
It was narrated from Yahya from Malik from Abu’z-Zinad from al-Araj from Abu Hurayra that the Prophet, Muhammad (salla Allahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said, “Beware of suspicion. Suspicion is a most dishonourable kind of speech. Do not spy on each other… Do not turn away from each other – rather, as slaves of Allah, be brothers.” Malik, Muwatta: Book 47, Number 47, 4.15
It was narrated by Abdullah Ibn Umar that the Prophet, Muhammad (salla Allahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said, “Because a Muslim is a brother to other Muslims, he should neither oppress them, nor hand them over to the enemies of the Muslims. Whoever helps his brother, then Allah will help him; whoever saves his brother from distress, Allah will save from distress, and whoever shields his brother, Allah will shield him.” Bukhari: Vol 3, Book 43, 622
It should be understand that passing any information about a Muslim to the kuffar authorities, which may help the kuffar in any way, is haram. There are no exceptions whatsoever. Thus, even if a Muslim residing in Dar al-Harb knows some information about a brother or a sister, or has some suspicions about them, and disagrees with what that brother or sister is doing, or saying or planning, or is alleged to be saying, or doing or planning, then their duty, as a Muslim – their duty to Allah Subhanahu wa Ta’ala – is quite clear: it is to speak honourably about that brother or sister, or to remain silent. For it was narrated on the authority of Abu Hariara that the Prophet (salla Allahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said:
“He who believes in Allah and the Last Day should either speak honourably or be silent.” Muslim, Book 1, 75
Allah Subhanahu wa Ta’ala says:
“It did not concern you when you repeated that about which you had no [personal] knowledge, even though Allah regards this as a dishonourable thing.” 24:15 Interpretation of Meaning
Being Muslim means being loyal to our brothers and sisters; it means saving them from distress; it means defending and shielding them, even if this gets us into trouble with the kaffir authorities, and even if we do not ourselves agree, for whatever reason, with what a particular brother or sister has done or is alleged to have done. A Muslim is more treasured to us than any kaffir.
“You are the best of people among all peoples, for you command Al-Maruf and forbid Al-Munkar, and you submit [in belief] to Allah.” 3: 110 Interpretation of Meaning
Being Muslim means being honourable, and doing our duty to Allah Subhanahu wa Ta’ala and His Messenger (salla Allahu ‘alayhi wa sallam). Allah Subhanahu wa Ta’ala says:
“The believers are as one family.” 49:10 Interpretation of Meaning
“Be loyal and do your duty to Allah; fear Him and always speak with honour. He will direct you to do honourable deeds and will forgive your mis-deeds. And whosoever obeys Allah and His Messenger will achieve the greatest achievement of all.” 33:70-71 Interpretation of Meaning
What some Muslims seem to have forgotten is that our first duty is to obey Allah Subhanahu wa Ta’ala. Our duty is not to obey the kuffar if the doing of such a duty harms in any way any Muslim. [See Note 1] Furthermore, it must be remembered that Justice – like honour – resides with and derives from Allah Subhanahu wa Ta’ala. Justice does not reside in some kaffir law, or in some kaffir Court, and it cannot be obtained through some kaffir trial in such a kaffir Court of Law. On The Last Day we will all be judged by Allah Subhanahu wa Ta’ala – we cannot escape this Day, this judgement, and the final verdict of Allah Subhanahu wa Ta’ala. Allah Subhanahu wa Ta’ala knows all that we say and do.
It is this judgement, by Allah Subhanahu wa Ta’ala, which matters, not the so-called “justice” of the kuffar. When the kuffar talk about “justice”, they mean their manufactured, fallible, justice. When we speak about justice we mean the perfect, infallible, inescapable justice of Allah Subhanahu wa Ta’ala. We do not look toward the rewards of this life – and certainly not to the reward or rewards which they kuffar may offer us to betray our brothers and sisters. Instead, as Muslims we look toward the reward of Jannah which Allah Subhanahu wa Ta’ala can bestow on us – for it is Jannah, and not the rewards and temptations of this world, which motivate us, or which should motivate us if we strive to obey only Allah Subhanahu wa Ta’ala.
“Allah is the Wali of those who believe: from darkness, He leads them into the light, while those do not believe have, as their Wali, their Taghut so that they are led from light into darkness. For them, there is the Fire, where they shall dwell forever.” 2: 257 Interpretation of Meaning
The Kaffir Appeal to “Moderate Muslims”:
One of the favourite ploys of the kuffar is to say that “moderate Muslims must tackle and confront extremism and extremists within their community…” – by which the kuffar mean that they want Muslims to place the aims, ways, agenda and values of the kuffar before their Muslim duty to aid, assist, defend and act honourably toward their brothers and sisters.Â We should remember what Allah Subhanahu wa Ta’ala says:
“When they [the deniers] seek compromise, they only desire you to compromise.” 68: 9 Interpretation of Meaning
The kaffir plan to divide Muslims – his ploy, this trick, of the kuffar – is that of appealing to so-called “moderate Muslims”. However, more and more Muslims – Alhamdulillah – are becoming aware of the kaffir plot to divide us by saying that they – the kuffar – are fighting, are at war with, “extremism” and not with Islam and the Muslims. That is, many Muslims are aware that the kuffar are striving to manufacture what they call “moderate Muslims” who adhere to a so-called “Islam” which the kuffar find acceptable.
This “moderate Islam” – which the kuffar find acceptable and which they have the arrogance to tell us represents “true Islam” – is the so-called “Islam” which accepts and condones the kaffir invasion and occupation of Muslim lands, and which finds it acceptable to have a kaffir puppet government in such lands. This so-called “Islam” is the Islam which denies the duty of practical Jihad against invaders and aggressors, and which tolerates and even allows Muslims to hand over their brothers and sisters to the kuffar to be imprisoned, tortured or killed. This “moderate Islam” is the so-called Islam of the moderate Muslims who find it acceptable to spy on their brothers and sisters and who give information to the kuffar about their brothers and sisters so that those brothers and sisters can suffer distress, humiliation and dishonour at the hands of the kuffar. This “moderate Islam” is the so-called Islam of the moderate Muslims who find the manufactured kaffir concepts of the nation-State, and democracy acceptable, and who see no harm in accepting the overlordship of the kaffir manufactured organization the United Nations, and who think that the laws and treaties and conventions of that kaffir manufactured organization represent “truth” and “justice” and can and should apply to Muslims. This “moderate Islam” is the so-called Islam of those who imitate the kuffar.
There is thus a very easy way to detect these imitators of the kuffar, these allies of the kuffar, these “moderate Muslims” who condone and encourage spying on their brothers and sisters, in defiance of Allah Subhanahu wa Ta’ala. This easy way to detect them is to consider the kaffir words and terms that they use. Thus, such imitators of the kuffar will use words and terms like “innocent”, “civilian”, “extremist”, “terrorism”, and “human rights” and apply them to Deen Al-Islam and to Muslims, writing and saying such things as “Islam condemns the killing of innocent civilians”, and “Islam does not condone terrorism”, and “we must root out the extremists”.
That is, these imitators of the kuffar think like the kuffar and speak and write like the kuffar, using kaffir terminology. In this, they are in error because they have abandoned the perspective of Deen Al-Islam – the values of Deen Al-Islam – for the perspective, the values, of the kuffar [See Note 2]. Allah Subhanahu wa Ta’ala says:
“Whomsoever seeks a Way of Life other than Islam, it shall not be accepted, for in the life to come they shall be the ones who have lost.” 3:85 Interpretation of Meaning
The Kaffir Ploy of Renouncing Hatred and Violence:
Another ploy used by the kuffar in their plan to divide Muslims and so make it easier for the kuffar to implement their Zionist-Crusader so-called New World Order in the lands of the Muslims, is the appeal for us to “renounce hatred and violence”.
As usual, the kuffar are being utterly hypocritical – for they are the ones using extreme violence against Muslims, as evident in the invasion and occupation of our lands; in their killing of Muslims. They are the ones who have a hatred, a contempt, of those Muslims who refuse to imitate the kuffar and who thus refuse abandon their duty of Jihad, who refuse to bow down to the kuffar and the idols of the kuffar, such as “democracy”, and who refuse to accept that the manufactured, fallible, values and laws of the kuffar are “universal” and must be accepted by Muslims. This hatred, this contempt, of the kuffar for us is so evident in the treatment of Muslims by the kuffar in the Land of the Two Rivers, in Sheeshan, in Afghanistan and elsewhere – in the torture of Muslims; in the humiliation of Muslims; in the imprisonment of tens of thousands of Muslims, world-wide.
Therefore, before they talk to us about “peace”, about tolerance, about renouncing violence and hatred, let the kuffar themselves renounce violence and hatred – let them totally cease to interfere in our affairs; let their invading and occupying armies leave our lands; let them cease install puppet governments in our lands; let them cease to keep the corrupt rulers of our land sin power; let them cease to tell us how to behave; let them cease to dictate to us as to what Islam is; let them cease to imprison us, torture us. Let them cease trying to divide us by using their ploy of “extremism”.
Furthermore, it was narrated by Abu Da’ud that the Prophet (salla Allahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said: “Whoever loves for Allah, hates for Allah, gives for Allah, and withholds for Allah, is correctly striving for the Deen.” [Refer to Sheikh ul-Islam ibn Tamayyah (Rahimahullah): Al Furqan bayana Awliya ar Rahman wa awliya ash-Shaitan, ch. 2]
As Sheikh ul-Islam ibn Tamayyah (Rahimahullah) said:
“Shahadah – to declare there is no god but Allah – requires you to love only for the sake of Allah, to hate only for the sake of Allah, to ally yourself only for the sake of Allah, to declare hatred only for the sake of Allah; it requires you to love what Allah has said should be loved and to hate what Allah has said must be hated.” (al-Ihtijaj bil-Qadar, 62)
That is, hating our enemies is part of our Islam, just as fighting our enemies – using force to remove them from our lands – is part of our Islam. The tame, kaffir-imitating so-called “moderate Muslims” may not like this – it might not fit in with their kaffir-derived vision of life – but that is how it is, for those who refuse to imitate the kuffar and for those who submit only to Allah Subhanahu wa Ta’ala.Â Allah Subhanahu wa Ta’ala says:
“Fighting is prescribed for you, even though you may dislike it. But it is possible that you dislike that which is good for you, and that you love that which is bad for you. Yet although you may not know, Allah knows.” 2:216 Interpretation of Meaning
“And there shall be no blame for those who take revenge after they have suffered injustice. The way (of blame) is only for those rebellious ones who oppress others and who insolently walk on the earth: for these there will be a painful torment indeed.” 42: 41-42 Interpretation of Meaning
“Let there rise among you a group Calling others to Islam, enjoining others to Al-Maruf and forbidding Al-Munkar: for these are the ones who will achieve success (Jannah).” 3:104 Interpretation of Meaning
May Allah (Subhanahu wa Ta’ala) protect us from all forms of Al-asabiyyah Al-Jahiliyyah, forgive us for our mistakes, and guide us to and keep us on the Right Path.
