Is the Franklin morphing into the Washington?! : Anwar al Awlaki On-Line

Is the Franklin morphing into the Washington?!

October 6, 2008 - الاثنين 07 شوال 1429 by Anwar alAwlaki  
Filed under Imam Anwar's Blog, In the News

For those readers outside of the US who have no clue what the title of this post is talking about: Benjamin Franklin is the US statesman who is featured on the face of the $100 bill and George Washington is on the $1 bill.
Even though I am not an economist there is an issue on this topic that I would like to share with my brothers and sisters. Gold has been recognized as currency for thousands of years. FIAT money (Paper money) is a new invention and is only worth the political and economical strength of its issuers and the trust the world has in this political and economical strength. That is obviously the case with nations that issue paper money without gold backing such as the US.
Because the US economy is the powerhouse of the world and is the greatest economy on the face of the planet its currency enjoys the trust of the world. It has become the most recognized and it is the world’s foremost reserve currency. Today rather than commodities being valued in gold or silver they are valued in dollars. Oil for example is priced in dollars. In fact gold itself is priced in dollars.
The Messenger of Allah says: Allah has destined that whatever goes up must come down. Therefore if the US falls politically or economically the dollar falls with it.
Today America is the home of an interesting assortment of sins that are handpicked from all over the nations that existed before us: the obstinacy of the people of Nuh; the arrogance of the people of Aad; the rejection of Allah’s signs by the people of Thamud; the sodomy of the people of Lut; the financial deviance of the people of Shuayb as America is the biggest dealer and promoter of the interest based economy; the oppression of Abu Jahl et al; the greed, deception, love of the temporal life, and the bogusness of the children of Israel; along with the arrogance of the Pharaoh who had the misled notion that just because he is the leader of the most powerful nation on earth and is at the top the greatest army of his time he can somehow defeat the servants of Allah.
Brothers and Sisters this leads to the belief that the punishment of Allah is hovering over America. When? And how? Allah knows best.
So if you are one of those unfortunate folks who turned out to be living in the wrong place at the wrong time then it is advisable for you to leave. That is obviously if you take heed. Many don’t and are still living the utopia of the American dream. I am not talking about Mo and Mike who are still shaking to the tunes of MTV with their coke and big mac and are only Muslim by name, but I am talking about the practicing Muslims who sadly enough still think that the America of George W is the Abyssinia of the Negus.
Hijra for the sake of Allah will continue until the day of Judgment. If you leave with the intention of forsaking the people of sin and protecting your family from evil you would be rewarded abundantly. But not everyone has the capacity to make hijra just like there were some Muslims who could not make hijra from Makkah at the time of Rasulullah. So for those who cannot they should pray to Allah to make a way out for them and protect them from the people of transgression.
If you are a person whom Allah has bestowed wealth upon then you should avoid owning property in the US and you should diversify out of the dollar into gold and silver. Gold and silver have retained there value over history and there is no reason to think that they would not do the same in the future. In addition to this being the prudent thing to do from a financial point of view, it is also the recommended thing to do Islamicly. Muslims should not be supporting the economy of a nation that is fighting them.
Finally, for those who are contemplating purchasing a home in the US based on mortgage which is a clear form of Riba they should fear Allah. In addition to it being one of the most evil sins in Islam it is putting money in the wrong place. Allah says that He will destroy Riba. It is a promise from Allah. There is no blessing in anything based on it. What is happening in the US nowadays is a testimony to that.

    Asalaamu Alaykum,
    Spot on article by the Imam. May Allah SWT make a way apparent for us in the West to make Hijra in the path of Allah SWT. What does the dollar and Monopoly money have in common? Answer: both are backed by nothing!

  2. Kashif AminNo Gravatar says:

    The Fed in the US being a private bank (a fact which most of the American sheople are unaware of) is the crux in the man-made riba-based flawed economic system that dominates our world. May Allah SWT bring it crashing down around their ears.

    Brother Anwar,

    This is something I have thought for a LONG time! I feel like I am one of those brothers who is unable to get out of the west. I have a wife who is christian, 3 kids, 4 brothers and a mother who all live here. I was born here and have never experienced living anywhere else.

    I pray to Allah subhana tallah for several things 5 times a day.

    1. Bring me to a muslim land

    2. Surround me with muslim friends

    3. Give me a muslim wife

    I ask all of the muslims who visit this blog to ask Allah to grant me those things.

    Salam Alaykum,

    Assalamu Alaykum Shaykh,

    This is a very good outlook on the situation. It is wise both in terms of Deen and Dunya. This plus your Hijra lecture strongly convince me to want to leave the United States as soon as possible.

    May Allah reward you for sharing you immense knowledge with us.

    Salaam wr wb.
    subhanAllah, Allah has His ways. We didn’t have the understanding of striving for the sake of Allah so Allah gave it to us through post 9/11 events, we weren’t committed enough and then the Gurabaa lead the way. We didn’t know Islamic financial system and now here we are trying our best to convert our savings into Gold. Allhamdulillah

    Assallaamu aleykum,
    Today my heart is shaking by your words that the punishment of Allah is at nearby I ask Allah to save me and my family yaa rabii and I ask my brothers and sisters whom is out there if you think you think you are close to Allah make dua for me and my family to get out of this coutry and save us from his punishmen

  11. abu al-hudaNo Gravatar says:

    masha’Allah, another great article. but what about staying in such lands with sole intention of da’wah? the american people are the most in need of islam to rectify their problems – be it personal, economic, moral, social or whatever. if muslims are staying there doing good work, calling to Allah and reminding the Muslims already there, why should they make hijra? you gave the example of Nuh, alayhi salam – he persisted for hundreds of years in da’wah!

    secondly, where do american muslims (those who have american citizenship) go to? nearly all arab lands will never grant citizenship to any foreigners. in addition, most of these tyrant regimes actively seek out foreign muslims who are practising and expel them – i know of many students of knowledge who have been thrown out of muslim countries for no reason.

    don’t get me wrong, i am certainly not against hijra for the sake of Allah – but you need to have muslims in non-muslim lands – and the clearly people are embracing islam at the hands of many of the dawah carriers in the west – surely this will only bring good. Allah knows best.

  12. Muqarrib78No Gravatar says:

    I believe Moosa(aylahe salam) prayed to Allah to destroy the wealth of Pharoah.

    And so, may Allah SWT destroy their wealth – the wealth that they r using to fight & kill Muslims and to support the tyrants & despot leaders of Muslim countries. Ameen.

    Jazak’Allahu khairen Sheikh, interesting article.

  15. spNo Gravatar says:

    as-salamu alaykum. i have two questions: first, there does not seem to be anywhere on earth that is any better. are there any places you would suggest? many places dont really have opportunities to work. this is something i have thought about for years, but it does not seem feasible.

    also, as far as i know, the currency of the whole world is tied into a global economy and so there is no where that has an economy that is not tainted with riba since there is no independent and self-sufficient economy.

    secondly, what of staying here and doing dawa and enjoining right and forbidding wrong? would this not be as weighty as hijra?


  16. Muhammad MQNo Gravatar says:

    Brother abu al-huda,

    The Sahaba never settled in non-Muslim lands to do Da’wah.
    Their method was Jihad fi sabilillah, where they conquered lands and then did Jihad. Never did they live a weaklings in foreign lands.
    Furthermore, this land is at a state of war with us, so Da’wah is not our priority with them.

    And before they were able to conquer lands they had to establish a base [Madinah]. So that is our first priority.

    How can this base be established? Please see the Shaykh’s other blog on the subject:

  17. Muhammad MQNo Gravatar says:

    Oops, I meant:
    “Their method was Jihad fi sabilillah, where they conquered lands and then did DA’WAH.”

    my mistake

    Ya sheikh, what about those of us living in australia? we are slightly effected with the american economy, none the less, the aust government is a supporter of american regime, where would u recommend us to go? anywhere in perticular? i have 2 parents living with me which i take care of. Jazak Allahu Khair, Mohammed Hassan.

  20. Brother Al KhurasaniNo Gravatar says:

    MashaAllah its an excellent advice to brothers and something that was really needed to be taught in such times of confusion and fitan.May Allah reward and protect our Sheikh.
    Quran and its Tafaseer, Muslim Forums, Muslims in the Headline News and Scholars like Awalaki, Abu Musa,Sheikh Feiz,Khalid Yasin (May Allah protect them) are doing enough dawa work. Secondlly the Jihad itself is Dawaá and you would have noticed that how many non Muslims reverted to Islam after Attacks of Afghanistan and Iraq. Its the Sunnah of Allah that whoever seeks guidance/righteouness he will be guided, as Quran says that “its Hidaya for Mutaqeen”
    Brothers once you decide to make Hijrah, Allah will make it easy for you. I am mentioning here just to encourrage my brothers (whoever wants to make Hijra) that I have been through this struggle and Alhamdulillah I successfully made my Hijra. This is not easy shaitan will come to you in many forms and would scare you of Hunger and poverty, just listen to the Command of Allah Subahn wa Tala and HE would make it easy for you.
    Surah Nisa-100. He who emigrates (from his home) in the Cause of Allâh, will find on earth many dwelling places and plenty to live by. And whosoever leaves his home as an emigrant unto Allâh and His Messenger, and death overtakes him, his reward is then surely incumbent upon Allâh. And Allâh is Ever Oft­Forgiving, Most Merciful.

    Refrence of Riba Surah Baqara: 276. Allâh will destroy Ribâ (usury) and will give increase for Sadaqât (deeds of charity, alms, etc.) And Allâh likes not the disbelievers, sinners

    Victory or Eternity.

  21. Abu BasimNo Gravatar says:

    Assalamu Alaikum Sheikh
    Just one comment – we have always seen that Allah pays back the transgressors in this world in their own coin. And in this case, US has always prided itself on its economy (that is now on a downward spiral) and its military (that is conceding defeat in at least 2 major theatres of action). SubhanAllah

  22. Ibn Na'eemNo Gravatar says:

    JazakAllah sheikh for the timely reminder. Please can you tell us, where exactly should we do hijrah to? It seems the Muslims lands are going through bigger turmoils than the west. Would you recommend any particular place? I understand that the Arab countries (most if not all of them, except from maybe UAE) only allow Arabs to settle. And Pakistan is going through mayhem and is unfortunately filled with nationalists. Any ideas sheikh?

    below is the reply to brother Haneef ,

    Anas bin Malik (r.a) reported: Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) has a she-camel called Al-‘Adba’ which would not allow any other camel to surpass her.

    A Bedouin came riding his camel which outstripped it. The Muslims were much grieved at this. Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) perceived it and said, “It is Allah’s Way that He lowers whatever raises itself in the world.”

    (Hadith 611 Sahih Al- Bhukhari quoted from Riyad-us-Saliheen)

  24. Moiez MasoodNo Gravatar says:

    I think the point that is being driven home here is the fact that there is no tranquil place, and this place will not just appear out of nowhere, we have to work for it. And for sure this place is not going to get built in a non-muslim country which is at war with Islam. Also a “muslim country” which already has believers, whom are easier to bring back to the truth is more practical, in giving dawah to and establishing such a place in such an area where Islam has its roots in.
    Times are gonna be hard and it is only going to get harder and the fruits of our labor will most likely not be seen for many of us until the day of judgement(which is cool btw).
    For those of my brothers and sisters who have listened to all of Imam Anwar’s lectures step by step and in depth know what Im trying to say and have that layout in their mind already. Jazakallah Khair Shaykh and be praise be to Allah and be happy because by the blessings of Allah on you Im a fruit of your struggle in your dawah to the muslims and there are several more like me who are carrying out what you and those other scholars like you are pushing for.

    Sheikh, I ask you, as did Brother Mohammed Hassan – what about those of us living in Australia?
    I live with my mother and father who would never even contemplate migrating from Australia, and believe I am an extremist if I discuss Hijrah, Khilafah, etc – and I feel as though I am suffocating here in Australia.
    Also, does a female need a maharam to peform hijrah? I have noone who is willing to allow me to migrate, let alone migrate with me.

    Shaykh, you make a good point, but where do we go? America is leading the world in its evil but the rest of the world is following it. The gulf region uses its wealth to hoard more than American leaders do. The rest of the Arab leaders have sold their souls to the devil. Being of non arab decent, we would face severe racism in most other places in the world. What can be done???

  31. abu al-hudaNo Gravatar says:

    brother Muhammad MQ

    Muslims have settled in the West; the world we live in is one very different to the time of the Sahaba. we now have literally millions of Muslims ’settled’ in the west. Furthermore, the da’wah continues, even from the prisons, even with the oppressive new anti-terror legislations. my point is, drawing an analogy with the Sahaba (while of course they are the best model for us) is not always the most suitable.

    i find it hard to fathom an all-out jihad against western nations when there are muslims scattered amongst the kuffar everywhere. Jihad against the kuffar at the time of the Prophet and Sahaba did not have situations where there were huge numbers of Muslims living amongst the enemy. i’m not negating jihad, all i am saying is things are a little more complex.

    aside from that, there have so many questions here that are not answered: where do we make hijra too? what about sisters without mahram whose parents/guardians will not let them? what about people who can’t afford it?

    yes, they make du’a – but at the same time be prepared for the jihad of fellow muslims to destroy western nations including the muslims in them?

  32. Kashif AminNo Gravatar says:

    I think the issue of Hijra is not as clear cut for us to decide upon, particularily when it comes to where the best place would be. I think Muslims worldwide should network better so that those contemplating a move have a brother/sister in the country of destination, willing to help them settle. A bit like how Al Ansar helped Al Muhajireen. By the way, I live in the UK and am contemplating Turkey as a place to make Hijra to. What are your thoughts and advice on this ikhwaan?

    Ya Sheikh, what about those of us who have no back home? Even if I do move to country like Pakistan, which has its own issues, where will i live? What will i do? I have no community , no friends, no relatives who cann help me??????/

    I believe that Hijra advise is not practical for most what are some practical suggestions/advise you give to Muslims living in West?

  35. JihadfeesabililahNo Gravatar says:

    Asalamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatulahi Wa Barakatuhu:

    There is a way through which Muslims can preserve their faith in such a world and it is given in Surah al-Kahf of the Qur’an (the Surah which protects from Dajjal). That way to salvation is to disconnect from the godless world. The process of disconnection from the godless and oppressive Gog and Magog (US-ISRAEL-WESTERN) world-order, and the global society that they create, can best be achieved if Muslims were to follow the example of the young men in Surah al-Kahf who fled from precisely such a world and sought refuge in a cave.

    The Qur’an itself directs the Muslim to disconnect from the abode of evil:

    “So separate us from this sinful rebellious people!”
    (Qur’an, al-Maidah, 5:28)

    And the blessed Prophet Muhammad (sallalahu ‘alaihi wa sallam) as well, anticipated that such a time of disconnection would come, and gave the following advice:

    Narrated Abu Sa’id Al-Khudri: Allah’s Apostle said, “There will come a time when the best property of a Muslim will be sheep which he will take to the tops of mountains and the places of rainfall so as to flee with his religion from the afflictions.
    (Sahih Bukhari:Volume 9, Book 88, Number 210:)

    If Muslims are to seek guidance from the story of the young men in Surah al-Kahf they would eventually realise that they can effectively disconnect themselves from the godlessness and evil that now surrounds if they were to retreat to Muslim Villages that are disconnected from the Gog and Magog society.

    The other Point is:

    From the Muslim Village, we can create a society that is built based on the Shariah, and enforcing the Law of the Qur’an and the Sunnah.

    Great Sacrifices needs to be done. In some parts of Africa and other under regions like Afghanistan, are viable places that we can make hijra to and create this Muslim Village. As we know that our Muslim brothers, the Taliban, are the ones winning the War in Afghanistan. We can migrate there and help them develop the Muslim Village they always wanted to create before the Americans and their allied evil forces of NATO and the illegal state of Israel attacked them in 2001 to destroy the Shariah and the Islamic state.

    As Muslims we should not be misled by the nationalism and political imaginary borders of countries created by the colonials. The whole earth is Allah’s and we should sacrifice all we have for the sake of Allah to migrate to a region where Muslims are needed most by their other Muslims brothers and sisters.

    After the establishment of this hijra and the Muslim Village, we can then launch JIHAD feesabililah to all the corners of the earth and drive away oppression and injustice that fills Afghanistan, Iraq, Palestine, Somalia, Yemen, Chechnya, Gujurat, Kashmir, Pakistan, Africa, Asia, South America, and Eastern Europe.
    From their on we can bring back the Sunnah Money, Sunnah Government, Sunnah Economy and the Sunnah GLOBAL Village.

    May ALLAH Azza Wa Jall Make it a way for us and facilitate it for us, and reward us with it with Jannah-tul- Firdaus. Ameen.

    Jazakallahu khairan ya Shaykh Anwar Al-Awlaki!


  36. Muhammad MQNo Gravatar says:

    Brother abu al huda, I did not mean so in such a literal way.
    I simply meant that doing Da’wah from within is good only as long as Muslims as in the West, however we should strive to fix this situation.
    Remember, Hijra came before Fath al-Makkah, not after.

    Qitaal against the West does not mean all out war, nor does it mean fighting the people. So even if Muslims lived within they wouldn’t risk much harm unless they joined the West in opposing the Muslims [and remember that such a feat is far in the future; before that a Khilafa need to be established and take back the lands of the Middle East, and fight off enemies that will be against it...].

    I am not one to speak on this subject, but I was simply saying that Da’wah is more than just preaching, but the Sahabas’ way was to do it from a position of power, not as a minority.

    As for addressing the complexities of today, that is for the people of knowledge to do.

    Yea I agree with what you say. My sister and I always wonder when that punishment day would come. Unfortunately we do live in the U.S. right now but alhumdulilah my dad doesn’t own anything. He wants to save himself from Rib’a. My dad does want to go back to his homeland, but the problem is that we are low-income. I know that’s no excuse cause we can save up (tie our camel) and then move with thawakal ‘alAllah, however, I do have a question. What if a Muslim stays for dawa purposes? Is that ok?

    For those sisters who have no mehram so far I pray for them and would advise them to get married to someone like minded (Mujahid) so that they can practice their religion freely.
    To the brothers: Question where to migrate is not that difficult, this is the time when our brothers in the land of Ribat are making millions and billions of hasanat and doors of the heaven are open and market to buy souls is on its peak then what are we waiting for?? the only land of Hijra is the land of Ribat, as Jihad is Fardh Ain.
    May Allah accept us as Shuhada and bring us together in Jannah.

    Rasool Allah Said,(Ref Kunzul Amal, Page 220)A time will come when my Ummah will be divided into two groups,one who will be steady and firm in the cause of Allah against the tyrants and the rest who will do every thing for others but Allah.

    Narrated Umer Farooq Razi Allah Anho, Rasool ALLAH Sallalaho alaihey wassalam said. In the times near Qayama my Ummat will face cruelty from tyrant rulers in (religion) and Only three types of Ummati will survive (from hell fire).

    First a person who understand the religion of Allah righteously and then did Jihad with heart tongue and hands and this exceeds in reward from others.

    the second person who understood the religion of Allah righteously and then witness it (openly),

    the third who understood the religion righteously but kept silent, if found some goodness , he liked it….and if he found someone doing evil he kept hatered in his heart (against it)but did not discloses it , hence this person because of not disclosing his likeness and dislikeness will be regarded eligible as successful.

    MashaAllah we are living these ahaadith, May Allah keep us among those who are free from Hell fire.

    Brother al Khurasani makes a great point.

    This is the first thing I read when I opened it right now. Quran [23:92-98].

    [ He knows what is hidden and what is open: too high is He for the partners they attribute to Him! Say: "O my Lord! if Thou wilt show me (in my lifetime) that which they are warned against,- "Then, O my Lord! put me not amongst the people who do wrong!" And We are certainly able to show thee (in fulfilment) that against which they are warned. Repel evil with that which is best: We are well acquainted with the things they say. And say "O my Lord! I seek refuge with Thee from the suggestions of the Evil Ones. "And I seek refuge with Thee O my Lord! lest they should come near me." ]

    I agree with everthing you have stated in your article. May Allah protect you InshAllah.

    One point that I do disagree on is the Issue of Hijrah to the so called “Muslim” lands of which there are none. Yes they may claim to call themselves Muslim but are violate every accept of Islam. The greatest Violation being the the disease and pride they have in their hearts with implentation of the Rule and Law of Allah.

    There is more capacity to freely practice Islam in a country like the U.K as against a country like Turkey were our Sisters cannot attend the universities with Hijab, our brothers have to seek permission from their local police station before growing a beard, there is fear of the secret services of spying on brothers that attend Fajr Salat in Egypt, Algeria, Libya to name a few.
    The Saudis don’t want anything to do with you if your a non-Saudi.
    Pakistan/Afghanistan are the Auliya of the snakes of america.
    So where is this Utopia that we are expected to make Hijra to?
    The answer is that there is no Utopia to which we can make Hijra to and that all there is more scope for the Muslims to practice their religion in a country such as the U.K than there in anywhere else in the world…

    To those brothers who cannot make Hijra or I would say who are not strong enough to go actually in the land of Ribat I would advise them to associate themselves with Jihad as ” all those activities which support the brothers in the land of ribat is jihad” Sheikh Awalaki defines it and you can find this clip on youtube.
    I pray to Allah to give tofeeq to all those brothers to migrate to the land of Ribat and remain firm on it forever. (Amin)

    Assalamu Alaikum Sheikh

    I came across the following 2 ahadeeth regarding rulers.

    1. The Prophet sal Allahu alaihi wassalam said, there are three things towards which the heart of a Muslim never shows hatred or rancour – Making’s one’s action sincerely for Allah, giving obedience to the rulers and sticking to the Jamaat. Since their supplication encompasses those who are behind them (those whom they rule over). [Ahmed 4/80, Tirmidhee 2567] authenticated by Ibn Al-Haythamee.

    2. The prophet sal Allahu alaihi wassalam was asked about revolt against the rulers and he said “No, as long as he prays” [Bukhari 1/116, hadeeth of Awf ibn Malik]

    Now in the case of what has happened and is happening in Algeria, saudi (for a while) where we find muslims revolting against the rulers – is this ok? because these rulers, amongst others, pray salaath – so should we not revolt against them. On the other hand, they have openly sided with the kuffar against the muslims and they are imposing man made laws instead of shariah – both these acts are acts of kufr as per the Quran.

    so i am a bit confused on how to reconcile the above two situations.

    Please help and i would appreciate if you could inshaAllah explain in detail.

    Respected Sheikh

    Assalaamu alaikum Warahmatullah

    Well my family is intending to settle in USA. I am from India and earlier I had worked for twenty five years in Saudi Arabia.

    Can you give me any information, which so called Islamic country is offering migration / citizenship to Muslims if they intend to?

    I would have settled with my family if Saudi Arabia would have offered it as they would not have lost anything but gained out of my technical knowledge, experience and my five children who are Doctors and Engineers with Master’s degree.

    Non Muslim countries are offering these advantages, while So called Islamic countries even degrade Muslim working force.

    Can you enlighten the minds of the Kings, Emirs and Sultans and Dictators of the so called Islamic countries who are cutting the thraots of each other? Where their oil money which runs in Trillions of US Dollars is kept? Is their money helping their own citizens or Ummah? While it is the Amanah of Allahu Ta’ala, which should have been used on Ummah.

  52. Brother Al KhurasaniNo Gravatar says:

    To brother Abu Basim:
    Dear I have heard almost all the series of lectures by Sheikh Anawer Awalaki, and as per his ruling of Quran and Sharia, these regimes are Murtad Regimes. Obedience is only in the case of Good and not in Evil(against Quran and Sharia). If someone does spying for a Muslim for Kaffir, he becomes Murtad, and look at the current situation, these Goverments are not only spying but they have become the hands and eyes of Kuffar and they are mere weapons in their hands. If an act of Ridda is proved on a Muslim then you wont see that he is praying Muslim therefore I cannot say him Murtad, actually the act of Ridda over rules his act of Namaz.
    Surah Al Maida 44. Verily, We did send down the Taurât (Torah) [to Mûsa (Moses)], therein was guidance and light, by which the Prophets, who submitted themselves to Allâh’s Will, judged the Jews. And the rabbis and the priests [too judged the Jews by the Taurât (Torah) after those Prophets] for to them was entrusted the protection of Allâh’s Book, and they were witnesses thereto. Therefore fear not men but fear Me (O Jews) and sell not My Verses for a miserable price. And whosoever does not judge by what Allâh has revealed, such are the Kâfirûn (i.e. disbelievers – of a lesser degree as they do not act on Allâh’s Laws ).

    Surah Mujadilah-22. You (O Muhammad ) will not find any people who believe in Allâh and the Last Day, making friendship with those who oppose Allâh and His Messenger (Muhammad ), even though they were their fathers, or their sons, or their brothers, or their kindred (people). For such He has written Faith in their hearts, and strengthened them with Rûh (proofs, light and true guidance) from Himself. And We will admit them to Gardens (Paradise) under which rivers flow, to dwell therein (forever). Allâh is pleased with them, and they with Him. They are the Party of Allâh. Verily, it is the Party of Allâh that will be the successful.
    I hope your confusion will be over.
    May Allah Guide us to the right path.(amin)

    I do believe with Iman’s opinion, and the way he described the fact and reference at Al-Qur’an.

    Me myself, learned about economic, and sinced school time, i sensed the danger of interest based economy and speculative capital market, particularly through securitization and derivative products. I do believe those kind of products will lead to disaster, and gain few people but much lossed to majority population. Clearly Wall Street became the biggest casino around the world, where other countries around the world copied and pasted that kind of system.

    It’s time for Hijr. Hijr to syariah economic. Economic system without interest and speculation. Real economic who bring benefits to everybody: entrepreneur, employees, states, poor people, and any stakeholders attached.

    Let’s Moslems think of it. Leaving this sinned and evil system behind, and grab our better future. Hijr.

    Some of the contributors often take this hijrah to be some kind of a journey to greener pasture!But this is no realistic thought process.
    The only hijrah that is going to make sense is to whereever the mujaheeds are resisting the kuffars who have invaded their territory.
    Thus,whoever is capable(and Allah knows those who lie in this respect and shall take them to account) should aid the mujahideen so that the most recent islamic state can be re-instated and from there other issues will follow.
    There is no other logical,sunnatic or Qur’anic way that JIhad to raise Allah’s DEEN.May Allah continue to guide us on this path of islam despite the prevailing fitnah which even the companions of the Rasul dreaded.

    Assalaamu ‘alaikum

    That the present crisis is part of a long term plan is very evident, especially if you consider the evidence in the following links I found on a blog. The function of the World Council of Churches, from a Time magazine article of 1942 is particularly shocking:

    These are the high spots of organized U.S. Protestantism’s super-protestant new program for a just and durable peace after World War II:

    >Ultimately, “a world government of delegated powers.”

    >Complete abandonment of U.S. isolationism.

    >Strong immediate limitations on national sovereignty.

    >International control of all armies & navies.

    > “A universal system of money … so planned as to prevent inflation and deflation.”

    > Worldwide freedom of immigration.

    > Progressive elimination of all tariff and quota restrictions on world trade.

    > “Autonomy for all subject and colo nial peoples” (with much better treatment for Negroes in the U.S.).

    > “No punitive reparations, no humiliating decrees of war guilt, no arbitrary dismemberment of nations.”

    > A “democratically controlled” international bank “to make development capital available in all parts of the world without the predatory and imperialistic aftermath so characteristic of large-scale private and governmental loans.”

    This program was adopted last week by 375 appointed representatives of 30-odd denominations called together at Ohio Wesleyan University by the Federal Council of Churches. Every local Protestant church in the country will now be urged to get behind the program. “As Christian citizens,” its sponsors affirmed, “we must seek to translate our beliefs into practical realities and to create a public opinion which will insure that the United States shall play its full and essential part in the creation of a moral way of international living.”

    Among the 375 delegates who drafted the program were 15 bishops of five denominations, seven seminary heads (including Yale, Chicago, Princeton, Colgate-Rochester), eight college and university presidents (including Princeton’s Harold W. Dodds), practically all the ranking officials of the Federal Council and a group of well-known laymen, including John R. Mott, Irving Fisher and Harvey S. Firestone Jr. “Intellectually,” said Methodist Bishop Ivan Lee Holt of Texas, “this is the most distinguished American church gathering I have seen in 30 years of conference-going.”

    The meeting showed its temper early by passing a set of 13 “requisite principles for peace” submitted by Chairman John Foster Dulles and his inter-church Commission to Study the Bases of a Just and Durable Peace. These principles, far from putting all the onus on Germany or Japan, bade the U.S. give thought to the short sighted selfishness of its own policies after World War I, declared that the U.S. would have to turn over a new leaf if the world is to enjoy lasting peace. …

    Some of the conference’s economic opinions were almost as sensational as the extreme internationalism of its political program. It held that “a new order of economic life is both imminent and imperative” -a new order that is sure to come either “through voluntary cooperation within the framework of democracy or through explosive political revolution.” Without condemning the profit motive as such, it denounced various defects in the profit system for breeding war, demagogues and dictators, “mass unemployment, widespread dispossession from homes and farms, destitution, lack of opportunity for youth and of security for old age.” Instead, “the church must demand economic arrangements measured by human welfare . . . must appeal to the Christian motive of human service as paramount to personal gain or governmental coercion.”…

    And here’s the list:

    out of the great depression of our time will emerge the one world government.

    2. Mr. Nixon knew of it in his time.

    Asalamu alaikum,
    This post is very timely.. I recall a a lecture a while back by a certain Sheikh by the name of Sh. Imran Hosein from TT. He has been an advocate of the gold dinar and the silver .. or “Sunnah Money”. I manged to find his lecture online. Very informative (see link below) Also Sh Imran has been advocating hijra for many years. To either retreat to the mountains, where you can have fresh water.. and live away from the filthy society.. or to form a muslim village. But now the Sheikh doesnt call for muslim village, as it would be called a terrorist camp. But my naseeha to those who want to make hijra for Allah sake. (especially those in countries that are part of the coalition of the willing) Look to Allah and Rasulullah for advise.. and the believers. (Quran, Sunnah and advice of those who allready made hijra) WS

    To make the Heart Tender (Ar-Riqaq)
    Bukhari :: Book 8 :: Volume 76 :: Hadith 508

    The Prophet had a she-camel called Al’Adba’ and it was too fast to surpass in speed. There came a bedouin riding a camel of his, and that camel outstripped it (i.e. Al-Aqba’). That result was hard on the Muslims who said sorrowfully, “Al- Adba has been outstripped.” Allah’s Apostle said, “It is due from Allah that nothing would be raised high in this world except that He lowers or puts it down.”

    Fighting for the Cause of Allah (Jihaad)
    Bukhari :: Book 4 :: Volume 52 :: Hadith 124
    Narrated Anas:

    The Prophet had a she camel called Al Adba which could not be excelled in a race. (Humaid, a sub-narrator said, “Or could hardly be excelled.”) Once a bedouin came riding a camel below six years of age which surpasses it (i.e. Al’Adba) in the race. The Muslims felt it so much that the Prophet noticed their distress. He then said, “It is Allah’s Law that He brings down whatever rises high in the world.”

    Al Salaam Aliekum to all my brothers and sisters out there. I want to first thank Al-Awkaki for putting up this website. Ive been a long time listener to his lectures and allowing us to interact with his thoughts is marvelous. It is ironic that this post was done on Oct 6th which was first day I was scheduled to start an internship for a Congressman in Vista, Ca. After the first day, I went home thinking what on Earth am I doing here. I was in the office looking at a picture of W. Bush feeling like a hypocrite. I did not think I would work another day. But then I remembered Al-Awlaki once said that Imam al-Shafai said there are benefits to traveling in the land and one of them is to gain knowledge. I am using this time away from my family to do that in addition to doing the internship. As far as leaving the U.S. , I dont think that is the solution to the problem. If we go to my home country of Yemen, we still have people there who are willing to arrest an innocent person such as Al-Awlaki and throw him in prison for months. The U.S. is like a huge robot that can be controlled and there is no way of defeating it, we can only hope to take control of the buttons that operate it. What I mean is that we need to do what we can to move those people who are currently driving the policies of the U.S. The Israel Lobby is one of the primary controllers that needs to be countered. We need to match them with their money and power so we can influence the foreign policy in favor of Muslims. And Allah knows best.

    M. Himid,

    Salam Alaykum brother. I am concerned with your comments.

    I live in the west as well and I can assure there is NO KNOWLEDGE to be gained here. It has only gotten worse here over the years. It was not long ago that this country gave no rights to gays and now the gays seem to have more rights than Muslims!

    It was not long ago you could practice your religion here but now just looking like an arab or having an arab name will have people hating you and plotting against you. Look at the example the other day at the john mccain rally. One of the speakers said she was scared of Obama because he was arab! My cousing was detained for 13 hours at the canadian/american border because he had a beard and an arab name!

    Another concern is that your doing an internship for an american congressman. These are the people who support and give orders to kill and harm many innocent Muslims over the years. These are also the same people who are part of one of the most corrupt/ignorant/anti-islamic governments on earth. You should not be there helping in any way…you should be there protesting!

    I was also concerned that you think America is not defeatable…are you doubting the power of Allah? Moses walked into Egypt and defeated Farun did he not?

    As far as Yemen not being a good place to make hijra it would most certainly be better than here. Brother Anwar has stated that he believe he was held BECAUSE of the american influence.

    Brother I do not mean to be harsh on you but you need to realize you have stepped into a position that there is no way Islam can support.

    Go back to your family in Yemen brother and live an islamic life. You never know when Allah will take your soul and what do you think would happen if he took it while you were interning at an american congressmens office?

    May Allah guide all of us and bring us to a place that we can practice this religion!

    Salam Alaykum,

  70. Brother Al KhurasaniNo Gravatar says:

    Brother, I would advise you to hear the lecture again, and try to re-understand the message. It is Allah who puts fear in the hearts of Kuffar, how can they win against Muslims when their hearts are defeated. Victory does not come from means, it come from Allah and whenever he wants victory He will creat means for it.
    3-160. If Allâh helps you, none can overcome you; and if He forsakes you, who is there after Him that can help you? And in Allâh (Alone) let believers put their trust.
    3-179. Allâh will not leave the believers in the state in which you are now, until He distinguishes the wicked from the good. Nor will Allâh disclose to you the secrets of the Ghaib (unseen), but Allâh chooses of His Messengers whom He pleases. So believe in Allâh and His Messengers. And if you believe and fear Allâh, then for you there is a great reward.

    the process of purification of the ranks of Ummah is going on so lets be sure that we are on the side of Haq as the vicotory is near.
    Brother, dont miss the train… Join the caravan. this caravan of Haq is destined to win.

    Please listen Allah is preparing us for victory, Battle of minds and hearts, Life of Prophet in Madina, Constants of Jihad.
    The conclusion you reached in exactly the opposite of what is being taught to us by Sheikh as per Quran and Sunnah.

    Very interesting book on how fractional reserve banking actually works: for example, when a loan is given to you by a bank, the bank creates this loan electronically, OUT OF NOTHING, not out of the funds of depositors! This lady is actually TESTING out these concepts, as mentioned in her experiences!

  73. M. HimedNo Gravatar says:

    In response to my brother Ibrahiem, I want to thank you for being straight forward with your comments. I wrote my comments right before I went to work and was in a rush. I never doubt the power of Allah swt. Moses did defeat the greatest Tyrant the world had ever seen, but the United States is not a person, it is nation which by the way includes 6 million Muslims. May I remind you brother that the early Muslims were at war with the people of Al-Room, and what did the Prophet say in a Bukhari hadith… these people will always be able to return to power. If you break one garn, which means a horn on the head, another one comes up. We are dealing with al-Room.

    Now as far as me doing the internship, my brother in Islam, do you actually think that I want any harm to come to my fellow Muslims in America. You said how much trouble your cousin was having crossing the border because he was an Arab. Don’t you know that if it wasn’t for Muslims like me, demonstrating in plain view of people that Muslims are peaceful, your cousin would not have even crossed the border. It is terrible what happened to brother Anwar, but al-hamdullah he is still alive. The Russians have no mercy on our Chechnian brothers and the Indians have no mercy for our Kashmiri brothers. The U.S. government is in charge of the decisions that the country makes. It is a Presidential cabinet of a few dozen people and Congress. If we get enough Muslims in power, we can turn the tide. You have to look at the big picture.

    And I appreciate your advice to go back to Yemen, but with all due respect, you should not ask what would happen if Allah takes my soul while I at a congressman’s office as if you are insinuating I will be going to hell. Allah knows what is in the hearts of his believers. I have the best intension’s brother. My work does not send a penny to Israel nor does help keep US troops in Iraq. I am person who wants to save Muslim lives around the world. I dont say something because it sounds right, I actually do what I believe is right. When I realized that money spent on a cup of Starbucks coffee possibly sends a percentage of it to Israel, I immediately told every Muslim I knew to stop drinking it. We need to think with our heads and not our hearts. My question to you and to Al-Awlaki would be this: Where do those Muslims in America go who are African Americans or converts to Islam.

    I respect you a lot but I have to say I am rather disappointed with your logic. Yes, America is in financial trouble (so is the whole world if you have not noticed). Yes America deals in riba, so does the whole world (which includes our beloved Muslim countries). Yes America practices oppression, so does the whole world. Yes America supports illicit sexual behavior, so does the whole world. The problems you are bringing up are worldwide issues, to say that America will be destroyed and the rest of the world saved makes no sense. Allah tells us that fasad is now apparent on land and sea due to the transgressions of humanity (as a whole) not just America. So instead of sounding like a evangelical Christian that tell us the wrath of God will be on the “pagan” muslims, come back to your logical roots. It’s a world wide problem

    There is fasad everywhere yes, but America is the pioneer that is leading the war against Allah and his servants and Allah swt wages a war against those who take his awliyah as enemies. Allah swt has gievn us intellect and eyes, look and understand brother.

    I live in London and have made a few enquiries into making hijra….But brothers always come back with negetive feed…and what I’m starting to gather is that the deen seems to be more prevelant here in London then certain muslim lands…to the extent that authorities in muslim lands will lock you up for holding halaqa’s or educatin on Tawheed and such!!!

    Assalam alaykum,

    Ok I just would like to due a few observations and comments:
    1. ‘The economies everyone are falling down and America is not the only country where there is a lot of corruption, moral decadence, and riba etc.. the whole world has these things.
    - America is the leader of the world right now and it is responsable for the implementation and the sustaining of dozens of dictatorships (on muslim lands amongst others) if she and her allies go down ummm are you failing to see what the implications of such a thing would be???? have you listened to any of anwar’s lectures?? And yes there is a lot of Riba, corruption, moral decadence etc.. across the world but where my brother is the SOURCE of this coming from????
    Because your neighborhood has a lot of drug use in it… it somehow justifies that you go live with the drug dealer? I know it can be a bit more complicated but just to give an idea…
    2. ‘The federal reserve system and arms dealers and oil companies are responsable for the wars, 9/11 was fake, and its all a plan to move to a One World Government’.
    - This is a load of bs that is propagated by zionist think tanks that want to escape the attention off the fact that the war in Iraq, Afghanistan, and the West’s war with Islam in general and all the bad reprecussions of it on the Western world and their economies etc. is due in large measure to the fact that Israel has brought the U.S. and the West in to fight wars for Israel because of the strangle hold that american and western jews have over their political, media, and economic realms. That the West and Israel are losing by the way.

    1. ‘If i go to do hijra i fear that i will have to go through racism, economic uncertainity, and muslims everywhere are being oppressed even worse in muslim countries.’

    There are some points here but the point of hijra is to struggle for the sake of allah swt… first and foremost… and to ESTABLISH a base of which muslimeen can live…. and if you have been listnening to the Sheikh you should have gotten the point that WE ARE AT A POINT OF CHANGE INSHALLAH.. a very beneficial point of change for those who want to reap the benefits inshallah…

    Jazaka Allahu khayran on this article Imam, and insha’Allah Allah will guide us on a path out of the nonbeliever’s environment.

    I wonder if anyone could answer a question regarding the justification of spending money on credit cards with the intention of not paying them back. There are some who would say that those who deal with interest, since they are enemies of Allah, are deserving of such an act.

    Just to be clear, I haven’t done that myself, as I heard that it can also be considered stealing.

    James, two sins when joined (or thousands sins) won’t become halal. So even if muslim countries are not so perfect at the moment, it shouldn’t deter you from making hijrah out of the US!

In our countries overseas we are dealing with hypocrisy, westernization, immorality diseases which many are attracted to unfortunately and unjust treatment.I pray the Allah showers his love and mercy upon us and gather us in Jenna where it is the perfect place to live insha Allah.

    Assalamu alaykom wa rahmatu Allah wa barakatuh,

    No matter what is happening in our countries overseas, don’t you all think it would be better to be living in a country where there are more muslims than not? I’m sure there are many people in those countries who don’t agree with the way their governments are operating. More than likely we’re all making excuses for our weaknesses and lack of responsibility toward our religion. Most of all our lack of jihad.

    As per my original question regarding using credit cards and not paying them back, wouldn’t that be in a way fighting the enemy of Allah? Wouldn’t that help in the process of bringing those companies down? Certainly they used to raid caravans back in the prophet’s (SAWS) time to help the muslims, and weaken the enemy. So couldn’t that logic be applied in this case? Anyone?

    Jameel the beginning of the video is very informational in terms showing the true colors of countries, however, it ends stating that all institutions are false, and the upsetting part it stating that religion is a false institution and that technology is the savior of the world. Unfortunately its ending message was disturbing while it’s beginning was eye openning. We must know and firmly believe in our hearts that all things in this universe will ultimately return to Allah(swt). May Allah have mercy on us and judge all according to their hidden intentions, and bring the Hour closer for this world is not worth the wing of a mosquito as stated by the Almighty.

    Jazakallah Khair for your insight about hijrah. I am surprised with the thinking of some people here! Making hijrah means thatyou live luxurious life and have islamic khilafa already established? answer is straight up NO! Hijrah can be done from greater Evil land to lesser evil land….The problem is we all wannna be ” Muhajir Umm Qais”! Stop thinking with grade 3 intellect! All those people who are born and still living in the west and are doctors and engineers should apply their expertise in the muslim lands to make it better. and that begs a question, Gimme one “muslim” country which forbids you to apply your state of art know how in their countries!!! The problem is we all wanna enjoy living amongst mushrikeen and use each and every excuse to justify it..I am not very different from you guys..I live in the west but at least i don’t try to justify ba’atil by stopping the muslims from making hijrah to lesser evil land..One of the hadith that i came accross ” Living amongst mushrikeen makes you on of em”(correct me if i am wrong, plz)..It is time for us to shape our nations and it is time to think, ponder and apply our skills and know how in our own countries. My brother in law was a doctor in Saudi and all he whines about is how bad saudia is even though i didn’t see him praying one salah in AMerica. We are just too shy to say we love living comfortable life style in America which is responsible for devovring the flesh of our kids, slaughter our muslim brethern and rape our mothers and sisters! Waihak ya muslimeen! Speak the truth and if you can’t speak the truth then remain silent…Sheikh Anwar is an example of what we should be! He made Hijrah and he was jailed! Wasn’t he? Why can’t you make hijrah? What happened to words like ” jannati fee sadri”?..As sheikh in one of his lectures says it right, ” Al ajru wal mashaka” Why you whining and complaining about a time when you have the same reward as the sahaba had? We are living in a golden rush! Hurry up before market closes! but agian we are slaves to our own whims and desires……. Why don’t you read the history of islam? As sheikh Anwar says , ” Sahaba were not monks …..They were active in propgating the truth and whoever opposed the truth, he/she was silenced with the sword” Look at the four Khaleefs..Out of 4 khaleefs 3 were assassinated…Sahaba didn’t establish the law of allah by following the lame and very not-practical idea of “tarbiya wa tasfiya” but they had the practical notion of tarbiya wa tasfiya! They purified themsleves when they went out for kharooj! ANywayz, I feel a little nifaaq in my heart when i am still living in the lands of kuffur..may Allah swt forgive me and us all and take away the “alwahn” from our hearts..May Allah swt purify our hearts from Nifaaq and ria..Ameen

    Our families can sometimes be a great test. Allah guides who he wills but at the same time it is our responsibility to give davah. And sometimes you wonder that if they knew what you know then they would feel or act in the same way that you do. or atleast they might understand your perspective. I have this problem with my family and I know alot of brothers that do too. and therefore I wanted to seek your permission to translate your lectures and record them in pashtoo or urdu, so that our families and friends that can not understand english can benefit from them.
    If you allow me sheikh i can go ahead with the project.

    I intend to post them on youtube, on a few websites and record them on CDs and distribute them. If you would like, I could even send you the copies so that you could get your people to test the content before I release it to the public.

    Most of you are missing a very important point – especially when you say that if i do hijrah to so-and-so place, it is none better etc etc.
    A very important principal in Islam is that the end DOES NOT justify the means. which is to say, as a Muslim we should do what has been commanded to us by Allah and his messenger sal Allahu alaihi wassalam WITHOUT caring for the end result. If Allah makes the end result favaourable to us in this duniya then Alhumdulillah, if not, then inshaAllah the reward (ajr) for it will be for us in the hereafter.
    So based on this, our prophet sal Allahu alaihi wassalam has prohibited us to settle amongst the kuffar in multiple ahadeeth – and we should follow his hadeeth to the best extent possible.
    And Allah knows best.

    Having lived in Arab World as a US citizen, there is no Utopia for Muslims to migrate. In the last 30 years, only Non-muslim world has opened doors to Muslims and others and allowed immmigration. Islam has grown many folds in these countries, also because they have given more freedom to practice their religion than Muslim countries. Only after 9/11 We must and strive and seek Allah Blessings. There will more recognition of Islam, and it is bound to improve – be positive. Frustration is Haram. Jahad is strive to improve ourselves, and improve others arround.

    Dear Brother ABU_DHARAAR …understanding of Deen is a blessing of Allah Subhan wa tala. All the praise is for Allah who gave us Ulama like Anwer Awlaki. Religion is ONE and its true understanding will remain the same untill the day of Judgement and those try to modify it will always fail and only misguided and loosers will follow the innovations and western interpretation.
    You said almost every thing which I wanted to advise brothers and sisters asking a place for Hijrah. I will pray for your Hijrah InshaAllah.

    I posted very straight forward comments earlier and I am posting them again for those who missed it out…
    To the brothers: Question where to migrate is not that difficult, this is the time when our brothers in the land of Ribat are making millions and billions of hasanat and doors of the heaven are open and market to buy souls is on its peak then what are we waiting for?? the only land of Hijra is the land of Ribat, as Jihad is Fardh Ain. for those who still cannot make Hijrah the following hadith will help them out:
    Narrated Umer Farooq Razi Allah Anho, Rasool ALLAH Sallalaho alaihey wassalam said. In the times near Qayama my Ummat will face cruelty from tyrant rulers in (religion) and Only three types of Ummati will survive (from hell fire).

    First a person who understand the religion of Allah righteously and then did Jihad with heart tongue and hands and this exceeds in reward from others.

    the second person who understood the religion of Allah righteously and then witness it (openly),

    the third who understood the religion righteously but kept silent, if found some goodness , he liked it….and if he found someone doing evil he kept hatered in his heart (against it)but did not discloses it , hence this person because of not disclosing his likeness and dislikeness will be regarded eligible as successful.

    We must belive when Allah Says in Quran: Surah Nisa-100. He who emigrates (from his home) in the Cause of Allâh, will find on earth many dwelling places and plenty to live by. And whosoever leaves his home as an emigrant unto Allâh and His Messenger, and death overtakes him, his reward is then surely incumbent upon Allâh. And Allâh is Ever Oft­Forgiving, Most Merciful.
    when some thing is clear in Quran and hadith we need to put our analysis aside. Sheikh has said what he wanted to say, the message is clear and I think he wont specify where to make Hijrah.
    Rasool Allah Sallal laho alaihey wassalam has commanded us five things:
    Samena wa ataana- Hajiroo-wa jahidoo-wa jama.(Listen and obey,Migrate and make jihad and stay with Jamat)
    Make your choice before you miss the train.

    Assalamu Alaikum Brother,

    Lets look back at the history less than 100 years after the death of Prophet SAS. The famous Mujahid Muslim Commander Uqba ibn Nafeh swept across North Africa conquering lands as a method of Dawah as rightly pointed out by commentators in this blog. There is a interesting fact to his conquests. Oqbah kept conquering lands until he reached the Atlantic ocean and was stopped by the sea around year 680 AD. Oqba led raids along the coast, which reached the Atlantic Ocean in modern Morocco. Oqba is said to have slashed the waves of the ocean with his sabre in fury that there was no more land to conquer beyond the Ocean.

    1300 years later the Americas is still waiting for present day Oqbas. The lesson is for all of us to strive to make it happen to deliver mankind from slavery of man made Gods to slavery of Almighty God. Ameen. Hijra is OK but it is not an option for me yet.

    Few Comments Brothers and sisters: First of all- I want to make a takbeer as the victory is coming closer and closer. I heard our shiekh saying that in the past Mulsims used to be in situations where they apparently were loosing and see no sign of victory and days and days pass by and enemy would be dominating us, then suddenly the Kuffar will say some thing bad about our beloved Prophet(Sallalaho Alaihey wassallam) and a great victory will reach us out of no where. If they are trying the same thing again then be patient and increase your efforts for Mujahideen as victory might be a push away.
    May Allah keep us firm on Iman.

    I also was at the Jumaah Friday prayers,leaving the mosque feeling betrayal and hurt. The imam was pushing the voting and there people outside the mosque with fliers. Has it come down to this?What happened to the Ummah of RasoolAllah. Why are we losing ourselves to the whisperings of the Shaitan, the cursed one. Our beloved Prophet(saw) constantly made duaas to keep our ummah steadfast and he worried about our fate. Look at us now, allowing diseases to penetrate our hearts and darkness to blind us from the truth and from the Guidance of Our Almighty Allah(swt). May Allah guide us in these difficult times and make our hearts steadfast on his Deen.

  120. Brother Al KhurasaniNo Gravatar says:

    Dear Brothers and sisters, dont be sad, these are the scholars of Sulatan (Govt) as Quran has already told us their role.
    Surah Al Araaf 175. And recite (O Muhammad sallalaho alaihey wassalam) to them the story of him to whom We gave Our Ayât (proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.), but he threw them away, so Shaitân (Satan) followed him up, and he became of those who went astray.

    176. And had We willed, We would surely have elevated him therewith but he clung to the earth and followed his own vain desire. So his description is the description of a dog: if you drive him away, he lolls his tongue out, or if you leave him alone, he (still) lolls his tongue out. Such is the description of the people who reject Our Ayât (proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.). So relate the stories, perhaps they may reflect.

    Surah Baqara 159. Verily, those who conceal the clear proofs, evidences and the guidance, which We have sent down, after We have made it clear for the people in the Book, they are the ones cursed by Allâh and cursed by the cursers.

    Ali Razi Allahu anho, has said that recognize the Haq you will find the ture people.
    Concept of Taifa Mansoora:
    It is from the Aqeedah of Ahlu Sunnah wal Jama that they believe there wil continue to be a small section from amongst the Ummah of Muhammad Sallalaho alaihey wassallam, steady upon the Haqq, not fearing those who oppose them untill the day of Judgement is established. It is related upon the authority of Muawiya in Sahee Muslim that Prophet Sallalaho aliahey wassallam said.
    there will continue to be a portion of my nation, firm upon the order of Allah, they are neither undeterred by those hwo desert them nor those who oppose them such will continue untill Allah establish his order and they will be victorious over the people.
    on the authority of Jabi Ibne Abdullah;
    there will continue a group of people from my ummah, fighting upon the truth victorious untill the hour is established. Isa bin Maryam will then desecend and the ameer of the Muslims will say to him, come and lead the prayer for us, he will reply, Allah has honored your nation by choosing you as leader for one another.
    Surah Al-Maida. 54. O you who believe! Whoever from among you turns back from his religion (Islâm), Allâh will bring a people whom He will love and they will love Him; humble towards the believers, stern towards the disbelievers, fighting in the Way of Allâh, and never afraid of the blame of the blamers. That is the Grace of Allâh which He bestows on whom He wills. And Allâh is All­Sufficient for His creatures’ needs, All­Knower.

    Ummah has been put to test untill Momineen and Munafiqeen are separated: Reeference from Quran:

    Surah Ankabut: 11. Verily, Allâh knows those who believe, and verily, He knows the hypocrites [i.e. Allâh will test the people with good and hard days to discriminate the good from the wicked (although Allâh knows all that before putting them to test)].
    Surah Al Imran- 179. Allâh will not leave the believers in the state in which you are now, until He distinguishes the wicked from the good. Nor will Allâh disclose to you the secrets of the Ghaib (unseen), but Allâh chooses of His Messengers whom He pleases. So believe in Allâh and His Messengers. And if you believe and fear Allâh, then for you there is a great reward.

May ALLAH Azza Wa Jall destory their corrupted economic systems, and thier misguided leaders such as BUSH and Dick of the US, Poodle Blair, Brown of the UK and the Illegal state of Israel.

    May Allah Azza Wa Jall Accept our duas.

    MashAllah, all praise and thanks is for Allah for granting Sheikh Anwar the towfeeq to write some brilliant articles and give excellent lectures. With regards to hijra, I would like to know where in the world we can make hijra, Pakistan and Afghanistan is to hot right now, also the people are struggling to survive, they havent got enough to feed themselves.
    Somalia is another place I thought about but I was told they are very suspicous of Arabic looking people, or any foreighn looking people. Even though they on the Deen, they obviously have to be suspicous of outsiders.
    Yemen is another possibility but again their starving out there, if we make hijrah to these types of places we’ll just be a burden on the locals.
    Forget Saudi, Qatar or these Gulf states, although their better than England and the West, from a societal point of view, but with regards to making a living out there, its very difficult if your a foreighner who keeps sunnah. if you follow the sunnah and keep beard, they dont give you any respect, Iv known brothers who have gone to Dubai and Saudi who have come back disillusioned.
    Im not a scholar and I have a very basic understanding and very basic knowledge with regards to this beautiful religon, but I think we desperately need an Islamic state, the world we’r living in now is absolutely terrible, its awful, we may be ok in our nice warm houses and fridges full of food, but I think about 90% of the world is suffering, its all wrong.
    Im not Hizb At Tahrir or belong to any political org, but no doubt we need Islamic governance, Its fard to establish the hadood of Allah anyway, so Allahs word may become the highest through our hands inshAllah, and peace may prevail throughout our lands.

    Salam alekum:

    Actually, I have to say that I’m disapointed in this lecture. I have always praised Sh. Anwar Al Awlaki and have learned much from his lectures. However, this lecture has many points which in my humble opinion are not correct. Yes, the United States may have many of the faults discussed in the article, but the most corruption that I have seen exist in the Middle Eastern countries. I am originally from Cuba and am married to a Palestinian who alhamdilullah introduced me to Islam. However, I am grateful to this country for many things one of which is having the freedom to practice my religion without being persecuted. I have the right to express my dislike of this government and of the president of the United States without being jailed for it like I would be in Cuba if I lived there and like I would be in any of the Middle Eastern countries who call themselves “MUSLIM COUNTRIES”. The first time I traveled to the Middle East I was surprised to see the photo of King Hussein in every single restaurant and shop that I went to in Jordan, and when I questioned this, I was told to be quiet just in case it was interpreted as an insult. I can and have said many derogatory statements about this country and it’s president in public forums and have even written to President Bush, and to date, I have not been arrested alhamdilullah. This country offers free medical care for those who cannot afford it. I have not seen this in the countries that I visited in the Middle East. Furthermore, many people from the Middle East who travel here abuse the government by having their kids free of charge and having all of our tax dollars pay for them, while they work for cash and earn thousands of dollars which they then take back to their countries. I have seen it from people that are Syrian, Egyptians, Yemenis, etc. So, I really take exception to what this article said about leaving this country. I am a Muslim and I run a weekly halaka and a Saturday Islamic School, which I am free to do in this country. Therefore, I am sad to see that the article by Sh. Anwar Al Awlaki is so negative about this country and doesn’t include the fact that the countries in the Middle East do nothing to help the oppressed Muslims. Brazil took Palestinians from refugee camps, but Saudi Arabia with all its riches didn’t bother to open its doors to let them in. I think we need to examine the so-called Muslim countries before throwing stones at this one. Lastly, as one brother noted in the comments noted, how are we supposed to spread the message of Islam if we all live in so-called Muslim countries??? I would have never been able to learn about the religion if my husband had stayed in Qatar where he grew up. I am one of about 10 sisters who are converts to the religion becuase of Muslims they met who had traveled from their countries to the U.S. for education, work, etc.

    Assalamu alaykum,

    This article is short sighted. There are truths to it as far as Riba and hijrah but these things are used to deliver the wrong interpretation.

    Whatever you do with your wealth the best investment is sadaqat and helping others. Make a connection with our lord. Do it before it’s too late.

    Any Adab(punishment) hovering over anything should be avoided (this is ghaib). Super powers do what is best for their bottom line. If there was really a war against Islam and Muslims All Muslims in western countries would be living in camps.

    Each one of us is tested in this life and Allah has given us revelation to find our test and cure for it. Read the Quran.

    The people of this dunia are hypnotized by the pomp and glitter of this life. The US has evil kufaar as well as some of the most insincere Muslims I have ever known. I can’t tell you how many times I wanted to spit on the windshields of the BMW’s at the Masaajid there. Those people will have exactly what they intend in the end. Most of the doctors claim they left the Muslim countries in order to give their kids a “better life”, only to have misguided children that mimic the kufaar. When I converted to Islam, back in 2001, your lectures were some of the first that I had ever heard. It’s so good to hear your voice again; explaining Islam in such an enthusiastic manner. I have left the people of sin, in the US, and made Hijra to a Muslim majority country, alhamdulillah! I would rather die than ever return there again. The Ummah in the US is so riddled with fitnah that it seems inevitable that they will incur the wrath of Allah in this world and in the Hereafter as well. If you know any Muslim converts that would like to visit/stay in a safe and supportive Muslim majority country, please send them my way! :) My young children love your lectures on Al-Jannah and the Day of judgment! Shukran for doing what you do! Jazakum Allahu Khairun.

    I take offense to your remarks. In sha Allah, we who live in the U.S. won’t incur the wrath of Allah, but you should really watch what you say in case Allah makes you swallow those words!

    You say the Ummah in the U.S. is full of fitnah … really? What about in Iraq, Pakistan and other so called Muslim countries where Muslims are killing other Muslims? This is not fitnah?

    Please watch the comments that come out of your mouth, they are truly insulting. If you don’t want to live in the U.S., fine don’t! No one here is twisting anyone else’s arms to come and stay in this country. I feel the Muslims here have way more freedom to express their thoughts and to spread the true word of Islam than in any other country.

    In response to Olga:
    As-Salaamu Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatu.

    Obviously I am in error as you neither returned my Salaam nor offered one. Thank you for such a hostile response to my post. I’m sorry to hear that you are trapped in the desolate wasteland of sin, and though it does not excuse your words, I find comfort in being correct in this situation. I was born and raised in a non-Muslim family in the US. I found it nearly impossible to raise my children there in a culture all-consumed with the perception of image, entertainment, and sin. Anyone who migrates to the US from a Muslim country is either a very optimistic Muslim scholar, a hypocrite Muslim with no Iman, or a very desperate refugee. If the Muslim Ummah is NOT riddled with Fitnah, then please explain to me why the first “Muslim” I have ever known used to enjoy going to strip-clubs and drink alcohol with me (before I converted to Islam)? Explain the Islamic benefits of the Disney Channel, Textbooks that teach 9-11 as a moment in “Islamic History”, and “Imams” that give a Friday Kutbah promoting the Haraam transaction of Riba’a. Freedom is an illusion and the US government is the magician that will only lead you more and more astray until you join their ranks. Good luck raising your children in such an environment. It takes a village to raise a child and the US is the wrong village for Muslims.
    As for your remarks (or should I say evil curse) I can only say: Aouthu Billahi mina Shataan al Rajeem. BismiAllah al-Rahman al-Raheem. I hope that Allah (subhannah wa T’ala forgives me and you for any miscommunication and that He will unite out hearts in Iman and Taqwa. May Allah (subhannah wa T’ala) protect you from the whatever evil is in this world and whatever comes after it and I ask Allah (subhannah wa T’ala), Lord of the Magnificent Throne, to soften your heart, open your eyes, and protect you from that which you perceive and that which you perceive not.

    To Rashad:

    Salam alekum warahmatullah wabarakatu:

    First, I would like to apologize for not saying Salam alekum, which I always do when addressing a Muslim brother or sister. My anger in your post got the better of me. For this, I do sincerely apologize. I also would like to clarify that I did not put a curse on you because I would never curse anyone even my worse enemy. I was simply saying that you should watch your words because you never know what Allah could do with them. If you chose to interpret my comments as a curse, again I’m truly sorry for that. Allah (SWT) knows my intention and it was certainly not what you have indicated.

    With respect to this country, I want to point out the following:

    I was born in Cuba and came to this country when I was 8 years old with my mom and brothers escaping communism. I was raised as a Catholic.

    I met my now husband in 1984 who is a Palestinian Muslim and through him and his friends I was introduced to Islam alhamdilullah. I have been a muslim for 14 years alhamdilullah and we have one 17 year old son, who although he is raised in this country, does not go to parties, high school dances and does not have a girlfriend. He attends Jumah prayer with his father and is active in the Islamic Community Center on which I serve on the board. He is far from being a perfect Muslim, but he prays, fasts and has very good Muslim and Non-Muslim friends (who respect our religion).

    I run a Friday night halaqa (study circle) for converts to the religion like myself and most of the women who attend are following the religion and are active in our Muslim Community.

    Furthermore, I run a weekend Islamic School with many other sisters and brothers, (many of them converts) which is in its 8th year alhamdilullah.

    Therefore, I don’t know were you had the misfortune of growing up in the U.S., but alhamdilullah, I am blessed with being here and meeting my husband who introduced me to the religion. He was very positive role model for me as were many of the men and women who Allah put in my life alhamdilullah.

    My point is that you cannot generalize because there are many Muslims living in western societies who are following the religion even better than some who I’ve seen when I’ve traveled to the MIddle East.

    Lastly, I do hope that Allah (SWT) accepts our good deeds and our intentions and that he makes all the Muslims to be united in the future in sha Allah.

    May Allah (SWT) bless you and your family.

    the us gov is one of the most sneakiest most intelligent of think tank rats and cockroaches ever in history of man in my eyes
    no not because they keep hold of my island in carribean with force and oppression
    not becaue they steal our natural resources and exploit them for their own benefits leaving my island and the people of my island to fight each other like savages allowing us to kill ourselves and each other making it easy 4 their suits to vacation with ease in their hearts no not 4 that reason
    but 4 the reason that Islam has taught that anything build from evil will never stand for long anything gained with haraam will never be pure
    i wish i could make hijrah out of this forsaken land but i have no money no assets no husband and no job but insha Allah im working on my life issues but as i am here in new york city i refuse to allow shaytan to be my room mate insha Allah i hold on to quran and sunnah and pray that Allah makes the trials and tribulations on the believing men and women and children to be filled with sabr and iman and give the mujahideen the equipment they need in all aspects of survival and intelligence to defeat these cockroaches and thieving rats from abusing us and grant them piety and humbleness and remove any ills from their hearts and minds and keep them in safety granting them supreme success over the disbelievers and the hypocrites ameen Ya Allah Ya Ar Rahman

    As Salaam Alaikom wr wb: I agree with the reasons for making Hijrah, I hail from a muslim majority country, however I dont think we all necessarily need to go to the country of our origin in case we came from abroad, It just depends on will of Allah swt and where he will lead us to, some of our families may not join us in our quest for jhijrah due to their own priorities, however as an individual we may make our choice and make dua to Alaah swt, it is upon his will and our effort He will guide us to the path of saleheen and allow us to follow the path of rightly guided, but the writing is on the wall and one does not need to be an expert to see the showdown is looming and it is near than far.

    I thank Allah swt, that he has raised me here in the US, just as the All Mighty has raised Musa (a) in the house of Firawn.
    The problem of the Muslim Ummah is not America, but the Muslims themselves.
    Also, I am thankful also to Allah, that here in the U.S. I am allowed to practice Islam to a higher degree
    than other parts of the world. I don’t agree with the Shaikh’s opinion, I am heavily involved in Da’wah work here, and I see much improvement, may Allah help us.
    The Movement is a Global Movement, each Muslim needs to become a solid brick, and be a part of the Movement,
    where ever they are.
    Unfortunately we have failed to address any of these crises properly, even though Allah has already given us the solution.
    I am afraid that Allah will ask us about our failure of addressing/purifying the ills of society, and our failure overall of conveying the true Message of Islam, like the people before us, the Jews.
    Allah knows best.

    First of all, Sheikh Anwar, may Allah SWT bless you immensely for your lectures, for they have been instrumental in uplifting my imaan, especially when it gets low from the filth around me. I am residing in the US currently, and although I do not have the means currently at my disposal to make Hijra fee sabeelillah, I have been consumed by the thought of it. I often wonder where can I go in the Muslim world where I can be of most benefit to the ummah, without being a burden on it, and without being mistreated by the people/government. Are there any places you can recommend where I could make Hijra? I have tried to convince my family that this is the right course of action, and I often cite your victory series when making my case. So far, it hasn’t had much effect on convincing them, but then again, only Allah SWT gives guidance, and all we can do is keep trying until its time to make the move- then whether they want to or not, inshaAllah I will go. I need guidance in this matter, please advise me on this matter. May Allah SWT preserve you as well as the voices of other shuyookh who speak the haqq and do so unadulterated.

    Asalamu Alaikum wa Rahmatulahi wa Barakatuhu,
    A Reminder:
    “So our time that we are complaining about, among all the other generations after the Sahaba, although our time is not exactly the same it is the most similar to the time of the Sahaba. Why? Because when the Sahabah came there was no Islamic authority and there is no Islamic authority today and this was not the case for fourteen hundred years. When the Sahabah came, they fought entire surroundings including the two super powers – the Persian Empire and the Roman Empire – and all the ‘Arabs around them that were against them. And this is similar to our situation today and this wasn’t the case in our history before. In our history before you would find Islamic authority, you would find people to assist you in Al-Haqq, and there was a place to make Hijrah to. Now we find that the whole world is waging a war against us and this is similar to time of the Sahabah, which means the ajr of the people today could be very great. We are not saying it is equal to the ajr of the Sahabah but it is going to be very great. This is why Rasoolullah (sallallahu ‘alayhe wassallam) has mentioned in a hadith that even though the best generation is of the Sahabah, then the Tabi’een, then the Taba Tabi’een, there will be a generation of people at the end of time and the ajr of one of them will be equal to the ajr of fifty! So the Sahabah asked, “Fifty of us or fifty of them?” Rasoolullah (Sallallahu ‘alayhe wassallam) said, “Fifty of you.”
    So the Salah will be like the Salah of fifty Sahabah. You fast one day and it will be like the fasting of fifty Sahabah. The ajr is multiplied by fifty, why? Because of the difficulty of that time.
    We notice that Rasoolullah (sallallahu ‘alayhe wassallam) said that towards the end of time that there will be people who will be amongst the greatest of this Ummah. Rasoolullah (sallallahu ‘alayhe wassallam) said in hadith that ‘Out of ‘Aden-Abyan will come out twelve thousand; they will give victory to the Deen of Allah and they will be the best between me and them.’ (Aden-Abyan is located in South Yemen, and today there is an active and popular Jihadi movement there in that locality)
    They are the best between Rasoolullah (sallallahu ‘alayhe wassallam) and their time. So we can wrap all of these Centuries, and they will be the best. The reason is because their time will be most similar to the time of the Sahaba.
    So why complain if you are living in the time of the new gold rush; not a gold rush for gold but a gold rush for Hasanaat? There are some times when the economy is booming so fast and everybody becomes rich and then there are times when things are stagnating and slow so these people wish they were living in the time when economy was booming so they could become a millionaire like those before. We are living in a time of a boom now; but we just need to realize it and realize the amount of ajr that is out there waiting for us if we just go and do something. The ajr is so great that it’s waiting for someone to come and do something about it. If it comes at a time when things are easy then the ajr is reduced. But if the time is one of difficulty, then the ajr is increased.
    Ajr is in accordance to the difficulty. So why complain about a time when really, it is the best time?
    If we are talking about the time when victory is around the corner, Wallahu ‘Alam if we are experiencing the knowledge of the Ghayb when Rasoolullah (sallallahu ‘alayhe wassallam) said they (i.e., the Victorious Group) will be the ones to give victory to the Mahdi, to ‘Esa ibn Maryam (‘alayhis salaam); if we are close to that time, the ajr is astronomical, and we do not want to be waiting on the sideline when all of this is happening; people are making millions while you are sitting at home doing nothing. So we shouldn’t complain about our time.
    Rasoolullah (sallallahu ‘alayhe wassallam) said, “Indeed Allah gathered up the earth for me so that I saw its eastern and western parts, and indeed the dominion of my Ummah will reach what was gathered up for me from it.
    (Saheeh Muslim #2889 collected that Thawbaan (radiyallahu ‘anhu)
    So this religion will reach to every continent, to every country, and to every city. The banner of La ilaaha illAllah will enter into every city. This religion will reach wherever night and day reaches; is there a place where night and day doesn’t reach? So you O Kafir, O Munaafiq, if you want to hide away from this religion you will need to go to mars or somewhere else! There will be no place for you on dunya! So we must all agree that victory is on its way, but the question is when?”
