The Best Shoes in the World! : Anwar al Awlaki On-Line

The Best Shoes in the World!

December 15, 2008 - الاثنين 18 ذو الحجة 1429 by Anwar alAwlaki  
Filed under Imam Anwar's Blog

Didn’t G.W. Bush say that the Americans would be greeted in the streets of Baghdad with flowers and roses?
Seven years later G.W. Bush himself is greeted with a pair of shoes!
Yesterday while Bush was speaking at the office of the Iraqi prime minister in Baghdad, an Iraqi journalist threw a shoe at the President, who ducked it, only to have the second shoe thrown at him, and again he ducked it. The President has been showing off his skills of ducking since 9-11. The man said: “This is the farewell kiss you dog!” and then he said: ““This is from the widows, the orphans and those who were killed in Iraq.”
Both, the throwing of the shoe and calling him a dog are ultimate forms of humiliation and disrespect in the Arab world. This, alHamdulillah, is proper greeting for this invader of Muslim land. But the even more proper treatment is that which is leveled against the invading troops on the streets of Baghdad.
The shoes of this journalist are better than those leaders in the Arab world who paraded their daughters to dance for Bush.
Before the Green Zone Scholars, and RAND Muslims, the promoters of the fiqh of humiliation, step up to the stage in defense of Bush and claim that this act is ‘against the Sunnah!’ let it be known that the Muslim is kind with the disbeliever who is decent and pays due respect to Islamic authority, but the Muslim is harsh against the arrogant and the transgressor. The words of Rasulullah to the leaders of Quraish were: “I came to with slaughter,” Abu Bakr cursed the disbelievers in Hudaybiyyah, and Omar would consistently beat these disbelievers, curse them and threaten them. On another note, and as ridiculous as it may sound, for those who say that al Maliki is “wali amr” and as Muslims we should not revolt against him, is this journalist at sin for not having sought the permission of al Maliki to throw his shoes? Because to them, this is definitely an act of fitnah!
Unfortunately he missed. As someone on the net has rightfully stated:
“Nobody wants to see President Bush being missed by a flying shoe like this. It’s a once in a lifetime opportunity that has been missed here.”
In the End, if anyone of you gets to know the brand of shoes this journalist was wearing please inform us about it. We would all like to go out and buy some, in solidarity with our brother!

    AoAwRwb ya Shiekh. I couldn’t stop laughing at the seen. It seems as if Bush is use to shoes been thrown at him because that shoe was faster than a bullet. We need to see this hatred and Gerah in the people of Iraq. It means victory.

    Assalamualaikum Sheikh,

    Very well said may ALLAH bless you and give victory to the Mujahideen and humiliate and defeat the kuffar.

    Intresting thing is on the second shot he missed Bush but he got the American Flag (United States of Aduwallah, Enemies of God)
    Watch it here

    Takbeer, Allah hu Akbar-
    I would say this journalist is a mujahid in the eyes of Allah who dare to welcome the crusader the way he should have been.
    I would like to say three takbeers for our Lion Brother Journalist.
    Takbeer-Allah hu Akbar

    Man I want a pair of those fine footwear! May Allah reward those journalists with guidance from Him, and a place in Jannah.
    And may Allah cause humiliation for anyone and everyone who is hostile to Allah, His Messengers, and the Believers in this life and the next. Amin.
    Do the disbelievers think they will subdue Islam? They are better off thinking pigs can fly, dogs can drive, and ants can operate heavy machinery after taking 500mg of Ibuprofin.

    Asalamualaikum Ya Sheikh!
    I have just read the same story, I wish the man had not missed. I doubt it would have knocked some sense into him though. We make dua that Allah strengthens the believers in Iraq Insha Allah. Verily this ummah will only stick together if we unite. There are too many RAND muslims in the world, I myself have been labelled an extremist all because I support the Mujahideen and am willing to fight for a Shariah enforced government.

    Jazakallah for you sheikh, your words always strengthen me may Allah preserve and protect you Insha Allah.

    O RANDsters!Who do you thank for saving your president and commander-in-chief of crusaders from being hit by this history-making pair of shoes; he deserves worse than that actually.

  12. samiehNo Gravatar says:

    now i finally understand what my algerian brother always said when he said that the halwa muslims need a stick. because who ever starts saying anything against this journalist should be beaten with a stick.
    this bush is responsible for dropping hundreds of thousands of times more radiation than nagasaki on iraq and afghanistan. the opression the world is seeing is worse than any previous collective oppresion. i beleive that this is no other than the jooj and majooj white world order, everyone of them dies leaves 1000 behind. now we have iraqi jooj and majooj. and allah knows best.
    it appears that with the financial crises im place, the table is being set for one world curenccy and after iran, pakistan, russia, and china have been pulled into ww3 to destroy themselves. all in line with how albert pike the 33 degree freemason, and founder of nra and kkk said they would do in the late 1800’s when he wrote the book morals and dogma. declaring the lucefarian doctrine.and how the masons and there allies would create 3 world wars to reshape and dominate the world. creating a one world order essentially.

    looks like the world will be ruled from jerusalam soon. and allahu alim

    i hope and pray that imam anwar will be able to do a series on the fitna of dajjal, gog and magog, ect. and the hadith about hijra to sham or yemen? what about the hadith of how the romans will kill all the arabs (muslim) on their land? many of us stuck in america want out and are not sure what to do or where to go?
    the concentration camps are set up, plastic coffins waiting, ovens and trains. these are all admited by the government and can easily be proven. army and pentagon documents are slowly being released in the mainstream news of how at least 20,000 army troops are being positioned in usa permanently to stop civil unrest and disadence. they promised more false flag terror and they promised to lock up the muslims.

    when i try to see the unfolding situation as it is the muslims in usa jsut say thats negative, we need to be positive, negativity is from shayton. ????? and i understand from their thinking how that makes sense but its delusian. shouldnt we see the world as it is and then be positive from that place of inshallah clarity?
    i am not a scholar but it seems to be clear for me.
    if i hear any muslims taling bad about this brother throwing the shoes. there might be some shoes being thrown here.
    by allah i am finding the chritians and non muslims more aware of the seriousness of the world situation and this MOST critical moment in amreican history. as well as the rest of the world as the usa has lost her so called’’soveringty” and the criminals behind this are just easing it on to them. like a frog in a pot of water. now the water is boiling and no one wants out! lots of non muslims ive met want out and some have left the country.
    i hope the muslims here will stop making sujood to berry obama. and i pray allah will open the way for the mumineen to make hijira from this place. amin.
    asalam ‘alaikum

    Salam alykum ya shekih thanks for the quick response that you have been posting lately may Allah reward you.
    since you said “On another note, and as ridiculous as it may sound, for those who say that al Maliki is “wali amr” and as Muslims we should not revolt against him, is this journalist at sin for not having sought the permission of al Maliki to throw his shoes? Because to them, this is definitely an act of fitnah!”
    I have been patiently waiting to read about the “medkhalies” who are the majority who believe and agree to the quote above. Can you please write about them and there ideology? may ALLAH reward you and may ALLAH reward and keep the journalist safe for what he has done.

  15. Ibn AdamNo Gravatar says:

    Here are links to see how King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia greets GWB. (this is with the WIFE of GWB)

    and here is one where King Abdullah is giving GWB the King Abdul Aziz Order of Merit (I honestly don’t know what meritorious act King Abdullah felt obligated to reward, but I am sure it is something laughable, yet one defended by modern saudi-salafi’s):

    What is truly sad, and disgusting is that modern day people claiming to adhere to the “Salafi” tradition will defend to the bitter end this behaviour of King Abdullah, using whatever proofs they can find to support their positions in the name of “defending” the rulers. It is as if the rulers are exempt from following the Shari’ah. Even more interesting is that these same people will go to great lengths to prove from the Qur-an and Sunnah such things as the permissibility of prayer while wearing shoes. I am not trying to belittle this concept, my point however, as Sheikh Anwar made in an earlier post is that some people are so pre-occupied with certain issues and details, yet are totally oblivious, and ignorant of major issues. Sadly enough, these same people today are the one’s who repeatedly claim to be the ONLY TRUE followers of the Qur-an and Sunnah, and those who are not with them are ALL deviants. On a more local note, let’s also not forget Hamza Yusuf of the zaytuna foundation:

    It is so true that Muslims are so quick to criticise, condemn, and attach fellow Muslims, then to even say anything remotely negative against the Pharaoh’s of our time. May ALLAH give Sheikh Anwar the highest reward InshaALLAH for speaking the truth, regardless of his circumstances, and may ALLAH grant us the strength and courage to do the same.

    Well that journalist was living proof that Palestinians have better aim. Of course the palestinians have been oppressed for many more years than the Iraqi’s and have had a good amount of experience throwing rocks at the Yahood. LOL!

    On a serious note did anyone notice the lack of action when the event occurred? Where was the secret service? It would almost have seemed that they wanted him to get hit! The only thing I saw was Al Munafaqeeni put out his hand out for the second shoe. May Allah reward this man with more feet for the next occassion!

    And just look at some before and after pictures of ad dajjal bush. From 8 years ago until now it looks like Allah has aged him 50 years! Can you imagine the punishment this man will receive on the day of judgement? May Allah save a seat in hell for him right next to Pharoon!

    An appropriate send off for Bush.

  42. MuhsinaNo Gravatar says:

    BBC News…..

    Crowds gathered in Baghdad’s Sadr City district, calling for “hero” Muntadar al-Zaidi to be freed from custody.

    Officials at the Iraqi-owned TV station, al-Baghdadiya, called for the release of their journalist, saying he was exercising freedom of expression.

    Iraqi officials have described the incident as shameful.

    A statement released by the government said Mr Zaidi’s actions, which also included him shouting insults at President Bush, “harmed the reputation of Iraqi journalists and Iraqi journalism in general”.

    Correspondents say the protesters are supporters of Shia cleric Moqtada Sadr – a leading critic of the US presence in Iraq. Smaller protests were reported in Basra and Najaf.
    The Iraqi government has demanded an on-air apology from his employer.

    An Iraqi official was quoted by the Associated Press as saying that the journalist was being interrogated to determine whether anybody paid him to throw his shoes at President Bush.

    He was also being tested for alcohol and drugs, and his shoes were being held as evidence, said the official, speaking on condition of anonymity.

    The Cairo-based al-Baghdadiya TV channel said Mr Zaidi should be freed because he had been exercising freedom of expression – something which the Americans had promised to Iraqis on the ousting of former Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein.

    “Any measures against Muntadar will be considered the acts of a dictatorial regime,” the firm said in a statement.

    The programming director for al-Baghdadiya, Muzhir al-Khafaji, described the journalist as a “proud Arab and an open-minded man”.

    He said he was afraid for Mr Zaidi’s safety, adding that the reporter had been arrested by US officials twice before.

    “We fear that our correspondents in Iraq will be arrested. We have 200 correspondents there,” he added.

    -So, only a drunk or a drug addict would want to throw their shoe at Pres. Bush?

    Obviously the “Officials” are blind, deaf and dumb to the voices of millions around the world who think that Pres. Bush deserves more than a shoe (or two) thrown at him.

    Insha Allah, Allah will protect Muntadar al-Zaidi and his family.

    An amazing pair of shoes indeed. This journalist throwing shoes at Bush, is doing more to voice the anger and resentment of Muslims towards Bush and his administration, than any Arab leader has done these past 8 years. The president of Iraq should be ashamed of himself for shaking hands with someone who has blood all those hands…and the blood of his own people in his own country!!! I personally want to thank the journalist for speaking out…in so little words and actions, he was able to express what millions of people around the globe are feeling right now.

Please don’t mislead the youth with these false stuff. may allah forgive you. and for brother Ibn Adam so what if the king is doing that. those are his personal sins you still cant go against him .prophetsaw said dont do anything to the ruler intill he stops praying. Read the life of imam ahmed. We dont care about his personal sins or whatever atleast his not killing muslims. Tell your shiekh to explain this to you guys if you guys want the haqq..

  59. IbraheimNo Gravatar says:

    Brothers and sisters the brother that threw the shoes is named Muntazer al-Zaidi. They are charging him with barbaric and ignominious act.

    Let us pray that Allah frees this brother, showers him with wealth and admit him to Jenna!

    It sounds like arabs and muslims from around the world are coming out to support him as the charges he was given could get him minimum 2 years! I find this ridicilous considering blackwater secret agents ran around killing Iraqi women and children and got 0 years!

    Let’s make sure we do whatever it takes to get him out and praise his actions! After all if Bush wants freedom in Iraq wasn’t this just a matter of freedom of choice? Nobody got hurt so why are there charges?

    Here is the article if anyone is interested in reading it…

    You tell brother Anwar to get educated but yet YOU are the one that needs an education! May Allah educate you with the hellfire on the day of judgement!

    I really don’t understand why on EVERY blog brother Anwar writes we have these fake munafaqeen muslims responding. How do you find the time to get on here when your so busy kissing the asses (excuse me brothers) of the Christians and Jews?

    So let me get this straight “disagree”. George W. Pharoon does not deserve shoes thrown at him but millions of muslims deserve to die, have their wealth stolen, have their women raped, have their land stolen, have there kids mutilated and so on and so forth BUTTTTTT Bush does not deserve punishment and NOW IS NOT THE TIME FOR JIHAD!?

    The incident bought such delight to the people that one person thought it befitting to compose a few lines of poetry…(i hope you all enjoy it as much as i did!)

    Ode to a Shoe

    You Danced above those feeble heads,
    As that Kuttha* looked on and hissed.
    Had you left my hand instead,
    You surely would not have missed!

    (written by Junaed Khan)

    *Kuttha – A derogatory term to describe a dog.

    disagree – you know what, people like you deserve even more that pare of shous than that dogy-dog Bush! Just look how you are uptaking things??! You say “also this did not do anything for him just brought him more harm” are you drunk??! Every child knows that that man did think about everyone in occupied lands, but not about himself, he was thinking about them, about those victoms of that dog’s philosophy and sure “brother” of your philosophy as well and maybe even more of yours! Because in people like you lies the root of all the tragedies:

    “The Messenger of Allah, salAllahu alejhi we sellem said: „The people will soon summon one another to attack you as those eating summon others to share their food. Someone asked „Will that be because of our small numbers at that time?“ He replied „No, you will be numeruous at that time, but you will be froth like the froth that is carried down by a torrent of water, and Allah will take the fear of you from the hearts of your enemy and cast Al-Wahn into your hearts“Someone asked „O Messenger of Allah, what is Al-Wahn? He replied, „Love of the world and hatred of death’“ and in other narration from Ahmad, „Your hatred of fighting.“ (Sunnan Abi Dawud # 3745; Musnad Al-Imam Ahmad #8356)

    “We dont care about his personal sins or whatever atleast his not killing muslims.” Again I ask you, are you drunk??! Bush either did not kill one muslim…not with his own two hands!

    “brother why is it hard for you to see that this is not the time for jihad and we ARE WEAK we need to get stronger and seek knowledge.”

    This is one of the prooves that you are not seeking for knowledge, because if you were you would know that the victory for this Ummah is not in the quantity but in the quality of her members! As it always was! And you seek knowledge so you can apply it, not to show off with it!
    And secondly, you are speaking to a man of knowledge which deepnes you will not reach in hundred years! So learn from Imams like this one here because in him you do have both, KNOWLEDGE and HATRED OF THE WORLD AND LOVE OF DEATH!

    “may allah help you guys salam”

    May Allah preserve this Ummah from your kinds!!! Amin

    Asalamu Altakum wr wb

    this is a response to the brother/sister that said what this brave brother did was unislamic. Let me ask you akhi/ukhti is it now haram to stand up to tyrants who have muslim blood on their hands? have u not heard the hadith were the Rasulullah (saw) said that Allah swt loves a drop of muslim blood more than the world and everything in it, that is how expensive the blood of a believers is in Allah sight. So my question is what should be done to one who indiscrimantly kills believers? Shouldnt there be more than shoes aimed at his head? you say in your first post “And G.Bush was granted that protection so which makes it wrong for us.” He was given protection by a government that he (GWB) put in place himself so basically US gave US protection, and did you forget that he (GWB) is the head of a nation which invaded and till now occupies our land s? Your arguments are flawed and irrelevant. It shows defeated minds of some muslims today, “brother why is it hard for you to see that this is not the time for jihad and we ARE WEAK we need to get stronger.” I sincerely ask you look in history and you will see that our victories don’t EVER come from our numbers or the equipment we have it comes from our trust in ALLAH swt, if you need a good example of that look at Qadasiya and the conversation that Saad and Salman al Farasi had may ALLAH be pleased with them.

    Salam aleikum to the Muslims. Sheikh Awlaki, I have a quick question about this quote; “Abu Bakr cursed the disbelievers in Hudaybiyyah, and Omar would consistently beat these disbelievers, curse them and threaten them.” Does this refer to the ones who signed the treaty and became Dhimmies?

    Лучшие в мире ботинки!

    Posted (Anwar alAwlaki) in Imam Anwar’s Blog on December-15-2008
    Не говорил ли Буш о том, что американцев будут встречать на улицах Багдада цветами и розами?
    Спустя семь лет Буша встретили парой ботинок.
    Вчера, во время речи Буша в резиденции иракского премьер министра в Багдаде, иракский журналист бросил в президента ботинок, от которого тот смог увернуться, после чего был брошен второй ботинок, от которого он также увернулся. Со времен 9-11 президент только и делал, что демонстрировал свое искусство по уворачиванию.
    Мужчина, затем прокричал: «Это прощальный поцелуй собака» и затем добавил: «Это тебе от вдов, сирот и тех, кто был убит в Ираке»
    Оба эти действия, метание ботинками и называние его собакой, являются формой проявления абсолютного неуважения и оскорбления в арабском мире. И это, хвала Аллаху, является правильным приветствием захватчиков мусульманских земель. Но, еще более правильное отношение выказывается захватчикам на улицах Багдада.
    Туфли этого журналиста лучше всех этих руководители арабского мира, выставивших своих дочерей для танцев с Бушем.
    До того, как ученые Зеленой Зоны и проповедники фикха унижения, выступили с защитой Буша и назвали это «действием противоречащим Сунне!» надо отметить, что мусульмане хорошо относятся к тем неверным, кто не выходит за рамки приличия и уважает Исламское правление. Но Мусульмане грубы в отношении невежественных преступников. Вот слова Пророка в адрес Курайшитов: «Я пришел со смертью». Абу Бакр проклинал неверных в Худайбие и Омар постоянно избивал их, ругал их и запугивал их.
    С другой стороны, резве не смехотворно заявление, тех кто утверждает, что Малики это « wali amr» и Мусульмане не должны выступать против него, и бросок туфлями этого журналиста не был санкционирован Малики, поэтому журналист грешен. Согласно им, это действие является фитной!
    К сожалению, он промахнулся.
    Как было подмечено в сети: «Нет человека, который бы хотел что бы подобная туфля пролетела мимо Буша. Такой шанс бывает лишь раз в жизни, и он упущен»

    Mr Disagree- you sound like a Rand Muslim- before you ask sheikh if he is on internet or in the field, r u writing this mail from Kabul?? or Sheeshan? please keep your Jahiliyya with yourself and dont put finger on something you dont have any clue about. Do you know the difinition of Jihad? what sheikh is doing is absolutely pure Jihad. If sheikh and Ulama do not deliver speeches and guide Ummah how people will go in the field.
    Knowledge, Knowledge– apply it to yourself and apply it. If you would have little basic knowledge of Islam you will be standing in the ranks of Mujahideen and not Rands.
    Its Allah who guides to whom He wills.

    Asalamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatulahi Wa Barakatuhu Dear Sheikh Imam Anwar and my dear brothers and sisters in Islam:
    Ameen, Ameen!…May ALLAH Azza Wa Jall accepts all our duas and invocations.
    Ya Sheikh Anwar we love you for the sake of Allah Azza Wa Jall. May Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala reward you for your great efforts in educating us and enlightening the Ummah of Prophet Muhammad [Peace be Upon him]. Truly this brother’s shoes are way better than those leaders in the Arab world who paraded their daughters to dance for Dog Bush and the Dicks of USA.
    Subhanalah this incidence also reminds me of the Hadith in Sahih Muslim’s Kitab al-Fitan Wa Ashrat as-Sa’ah (The Book Pertaining to the Turmoil and Portents of the Last Hour) which is narrated by Abu Sa’id al-Khudri about the greatest martyr in Dajjal’s time:
    Abu Sa’id al-Khudri reported Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) as saying: The Dajjal would come forth and a person from amongst the believers would go towards him and the armed men of the Dajjal would meet him and they would say to him: Where do you intend to go? He would say: I intend to go to this one who is coming forth. They would say to him: Don’t you believe in our Lord? He would say: There is nothing hidden about our Lord. They would say: Kill him. Then some amongst them would say: Has your master (Dajjal) not forbidden you to kill anyone without (his consent)? And so they would take him to the Dajjal and when the believer would see him, he would say: O people. he is the Dajjil about whom Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) has informed (us). The Dajjal would then order for breaking his head and utter (these words): Catch hold of him and break his head. He would be struck even on his back and on his stomach. Then the Dajjal would ask him: Don’t you believe in me? He would say: You are a false Masih. He would then order him to be torn (into pieces) with a saw from the parting of his hair up to his legs. After that the Dajjal would walk between the two pieces. He would then say to him: Stand, and he would stand erect. He would then say to him: Don’t you believe in me? And the person would say: It has only added to my insight concerning you (that you are really the Dajjal). He would then say: O people, he would not behave with anyone amongst people (in such a manner) after me. The Dajjal would try to catch hold of him so that he should kill him (again). The space between his neck and collar bone would be turned into copper and he would find no means to kill him. So he would catch hold of him by his hand and feet and throw him (into the air) and the people would think as if he had been thrown in the Hell-Fire whereas he would be thrown in Paradise. Thereupon Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) said: He would be the most eminent amongst persons in regard to martyrdom in the eye of the Lord of the world.

    [Sahih Muslim: Book 41, Number 7019]
    Now to the Kuffar sympathizers and the RAND Mozlemz trying to defend Dog Bush and their puppets and mercenary killers from the US-ARMY and alliance of Dajjal forces, Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala Informs us:
    “Indeed, We have sent you, [O Muhammad], with the truth as a bringer of good tidings and a warner, and you will not be asked about the companions of Hellfire.
    And never will the Jews or the Christians approve of you until you follow their religion. Say, “Indeed, the guidance of Allah is the [only] guidance.” If you were to follow their desires after what has come to you of knowledge, you would have against Allah no protector or helper.”

    [Surah Al-Baqarah, Ayat 119-120]

    “And the disbelievers planned, but Allah planned. And Allah is the best of planners.”
    [Surah Ali-Imran, Ayah 54]

    “They wish you would disbelieve as they disbelieved so you would be alike.”
    [Surah An-Nisaa, Ayah 89]
    “Satan has overcome them and made them forget the remembrance of Allah. Those are the party of Satan. Unquestionably, the party of Satan – they will be the losers.
    Indeed, the ones who oppose Allah and His Messenger – those will be among the most humiliated.
    Allah has written, ‘I will surely overcome, I and My messengers.’ Indeed, Allah is Powerful and Exalted in Might.
    You will not find a people who believe in Allah and the Last Day having affection for those who oppose Allah and His Messenger, even if they were their fathers or their sons or their brothers or their kindred. Those – He has decreed within their hearts faith and supported them with spirit from Him. And We will admit them to gardens beneath which rivers flow, wherein they abide eternally. Allah is pleased with them, and they are pleased with Him – those are the party of Allah. Unquestionably, the party of Allah – they are the successful.”

    [Surah Al-Mujaadilah, Ayat 19-22]

    Now here is short Analysis of The current battle between the Party of Allah and the Party of Satan:

    The Party of Satan, and this also includes: (Nationalists and International world terrorists, such as: the Illegal State of Israel, Mossad, Shabak-Kufr Agency, Israel Defense Forces, Israeli Intelligence Community, Israeli National Security Council, Israel Police, Israel Border Police, Israel Prison Service, Firaunic economies and countries such as: United States of America, US-ARMY, CIA, FBI DIA, NSA, United Kingdom, MI5, NATO, Kafir Shimon Peres, Kafir Ariel Sharon, Kafir Ehud Olmert, Dog Bush and the Dicks of USA, The Poodles in the UK, with their puppets and their hypocrites around the world), always attributes injustice, hatred, terrorism and wrongdoing to any Muslim who exposes them and who fight to destroy their idols and corrupt systems when, in fact, the Party of Satan had committed and is committing the greatest injustice, terrorism, and wrongdoing by worshipping idols, massacring millions of lives, enslaving the world with their falsehood, spreading lies about Allah, Islam and Muhammad [PBUH].
    “And [remember, O Muhammad], when those who disbelieved plotted against you to restrain you or kill you or evict you. But they plan, and Allah plans. And Allah is the best of planners.”
    [Surah Al-Anfaal, Ayah 30]

    We all should know that these are the ways of tyrants all the time: When a righteous person opposes their evil schemes, exposes their evil ideologies, opposes their occupation and colonization, and opposes their satanic military bases in Muslim’ lands, they, the tyrants, quickly label such righteous hero with heresy, deviation, terrorism and wrongdoing. And you have the hypocrites from some of the Muslim communities and scholars for dollars echo such lies and propaganda.
    “And those before them had plotted, but to Allah belongs the plan entirely. He knows what every soul earns, and the disbelievers will know for whom is the final home.
    And those who have disbelieved say, ‘You are not a messenger.’ Say, [O Muhammad], ‘Sufficient is Allah as Witness between me and you, and [the witness of] whoever has knowledge of the Scripture.’”

    [Surah Ar-Raad, Ayat 42-43]

    Once evidences are established against the tyrants and idolaters (Money Worshippers), they would only continue with their disbelief and denial by inverting their intellects and “think tanks”. You would think that their intellect should normally have enabled them to distinguish between right and wrong. But when it becomes inverted, their views and actions became inverted as well, and they see the wrong as right and vice-versa.
    “We had certainly brought you the truth, but most of you, to the truth, were averse.
    Or have they devised [some] affair? But indeed, We are devising [a plan].
    Or do they think that We hear not their secrets and their private conversations? Yes, [We do], and Our messengers are with them recording.”

    [Surah Az-Zukhruf, Ayat 78-80]

    From what we understood from the Qur’an concerning tyrants and pharaonic societies such as the United States of America, United Kingdom and the Illegal State of Israel, they usually accuse the righteous of wrongdoing and heresy and branding Islam “radical” Allah’s Prophets as “imposters” and Muslims as “Terrorists”.
    “No one disputes concerning the signs of Allah except those who disbelieve, so be not deceived by their [uninhibited] movement throughout the land.
    The people of Noah denied before them and the [disbelieving] factions after them, and every nation intended [a plot] for their messenger to seize him, and they disputed by [using] falsehood to [attempt to] invalidate thereby the truth. So I seized them, and how [terrible] was My penalty.
    And thus has the word of your Lord come into effect upon those who disbelieved that they are companions of the Fire.”

    [Surah Ghaafir, Ayat 4-6]

    The Accusations are often followed with attacks, invasion, occupation, colonization, illegal imprisonments, torture, massacre, rape, islamophobia, lies, arrogance, persecution and the destruction of Masaajid, learning centers, and madarasas etc. It is not surprising then that, when the tyrants lose a debate and the battle of hearts and minds in the arena of reason and intellect, they turn to power, hegemony, and oppression to force others to accept their views and unjust secular democratic ideologies.
    “Assuredly, Allah knows what they conceal and what they declare. Indeed, He does not like the arrogant.
    And when it is said to them, ‘What has your Lord sent down?’ They say, ‘Legends of the former peoples,’
    That they may bear their own burdens in full on the Day of Resurrection and some of the burdens of those whom they misguide without knowledge. Unquestionably, evil is that which they bear.
    Those before them had already plotted, but Allah came at their building from the foundations, so the roof fell upon them from above them, and the punishment came to them from where they did not perceive.
    Then on the Day of Resurrection He will disgrace them and say, ‘Where are My “partners” for whom you used to oppose [the believers]?’ Those who were given knowledge will say, ‘Indeed disgrace, this Day, and evil are upon the disbelievers’ -
    The ones whom the angels take in death [while] wronging themselves, and [who] then offer submission, [saying], ‘We were not doing any evil.’ But, yes! Indeed, Allah is Knowing of what you used to do.
    So enter the gates of Hell to abide eternally therein, and how wretched is the residence of the arrogant.”

    [Surah An-Nahl, Ayat 23-29]

    These tyrants such as the Bushes and the Dicks of USA, the Blair-Brown Poodles of UK, the Child and Women Butchers of the Illegal State of Israel and their hypocritical puppets are proudly plotting against Islam and Muslims to inflict total destruction, harm and humility on the righteous Muslims, Islam, Jihadfeesabililah and the Shariah. They also want to make the harm they are inflicting on our heroes a lesson for anyone who would ever consider following Islam, Jihadfeesabililah and the Justice of the Shariah.
    “And they planned a plan, and We planned a plan, while they perceived not.
    Then look how was the outcome of their plan – that We destroyed them and their people, all.
    So those are their houses, desolate because of the wrong they had done. Indeed in that is a sign for people who know.
    And We saved those who believed and used to fear Allah.”

    [Surah An-Naml, Ayat 50-53]

    Alhamdulilah, we see their plotting is turning against them, like it always does for tyrants and inshallah Allah makes them the losers. Their loss consisted of conquer of hearts, minds and lands and their destruction in this life and their eternal abode in Hell Fire in the next life.

    Allah Inshallah will protect the righteous and the true Muslims those who fight against the oppressor and defend Muslim lands and honor for the sake of Allah Azza Wa Jall. Allah Subhanahu wa Ta’ala protects the heroes of the Ummah, those in Afghanistan, Somalia, Iraq, Pakistan and Palestine. Allah Azza Wa Jall Inshallah will protect the current leader of the believers at the front lines to win the current and future battles of the Mujahideen, for Islam and for the Truth and Justice. May ALLAH protect him and all those who follow him.
    “So Allah protected him from the evils they plotted, and the people of Pharaoh were enveloped by the worst of punishment –
    The Fire, they are exposed to it morning and evening. And the Day the Hour appears [it will be said], ‘Make the people of Pharaoh enter the severest punishment.’”

    [Surah Ghaafir, Ayat 45-46]

    “‘Our Lord, forgive me and my parents and the believers the Day the account is established.’
    And never think that Allah is unaware of what the wrongdoers do. He only delays them for a Day when eyes will stare [in horror].
    Racing ahead, their heads raised up, their glance does not come back to them, and their hearts are void.
    And, [O Muhammad], warn the people of a Day when the punishment will come to them and those who did wrong will say, “Our Lord, delay us for a short term; we will answer Your call and follow the messengers.” [But it will be said], “Had you not sworn, before, that for you there would be no cessation?
    And you lived among the dwellings of those who wronged themselves, and it had become clear to you how We dealt with them. And We presented for you [many] examples.”
    And they had planned their plan, but with Allah is [recorded] their plan, even if their plan had been [sufficient] to do away with the mountains.
    So never think that Allah will fail in His promise to His messengers. Indeed, Allah is Exalted in Might and Owner of Retribution.
    [It will be] on the Day the earth will be replaced by another earth, and the heavens [as well], and all creatures will come out before Allah, the One, the Prevailing.
    And you will see the criminals that Day bound together in shackles,
    Their garments of liquid pitch and their faces covered by the Fire.
    So that Allah will recompense every soul for what it earned. Indeed, Allah is swift in account.
    This [Qur’an] is notification for the people that they may be warned thereby and that they may know that He is but one God and that those of understanding will be reminded.”
    [Surah Ibraheem, Ayat 41-52]

    Assalam-o-Alaikum Brother and sisters:
    Sister Jihadfeesabililah, JazakAllah Khair for such a great post. May Allah reward you and keep you firm in the times of test.
    I am reading a Book (Story of the Sellers of the Imaan) This book is on Salalhuddin Ayubi Rehmaullah’s life and how he cope with the fitna of his time: while we see that Ummah was in her worst condition of dis-unity as far as moral and religious values are concerned those were even ever worst. at the same time I remember the lecture by sheikh that Allah is preparing us for victory. while we see that Majority of Muslims were involved in zina and drinking, friendships with Kuffar and betrayal with Khalifa. We find likes of Ayubi, the men of real character who despite of all the inside and outside problams managed to defeat the crusaders. Look at Mullah Umar Hifdhullah, how he is defeating Crusader while all the Police Forces intellgience agencies, Armies,media and technology is on the side of crusaders, and they have been successful winning the moajority of the Muslims on their side declaring Mujahideen as Terrorists and Jihad as Terrorism- and still look who is demanding more troops more aid, taliban or Nato? look at the recent attacks on Nato terminals which has forced them to change their logistic routs.
    I remeber a famous saying of Sallahudding which I would quote for puppit regimes and drinking Generals of so called Muslim Armies.
    “he said, you should play with birds and have fun with pets, the drinker and Zani(adulterer) cannot fight in the battle field”
    Its the party of Allah that is and will be victorious. Allah is only testing our Imaan, He is not in need of you and me, its just our Imaan which would allow us to join the Caravan which is destined to win.

    8-54. 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.
    56. And whosoever takes Allâh, His Messenger, and those who have believed, as Protectors, then the party of Allâh will be the victorious.
    Victory is Near InshaAllah, lets preapare ourselves to stand by Haq.
    No doubt its not Mujahideen its Allah Azza wa Jall who is fighting these dirty Kuffars and he is the Best of Planner:
    8-17. You killed them not, but Allâh killed them. And you (Muhammad ) threw not when you did throw but Allâh threw, that He might test the believers by a fair trial from Him. Verily, Allâh is All-Hearer, All-Knower.
    18. This (is the fact) and surely, Allâh weakens the deceitful plots of the disbelievers.

    Victory or Eternity

    Few things
    1.Jihad is not done on the condition that no harm will be received.A hadith says ,he who dies without the mark of Jihad will meet Allah with a flaw in him.Just go through the pages of history and see how many Sahaba received fatal injuries.

    2.The period when Imam hambal suffered and the period when Yazid tortured those where the periods where the rulers will tyrants but they never invited Kuffar to rule over them,they never sought kuffar’s protection.Those tyrants were sinners but shariah law was followed although there was corruption.

    3.Case of today is different,there is no where Islamic shariah applied completely.Instead kuffar have invaded our lands and are spilling our blood.There is no absolute Muslim tyrant but puppet Muslim tyrant rulers whose remote is in the kuffar tyrants the satan worshippers freemasons.

    Please turn the pages of history before the establishment of UK & US and give me one example where Muslim rulers were puppets of Kuffar.

    This is not the period where we remain silent and suffer because these satan worshippers are not intending to accept Islam rather they are intending to destroy Islam.

    Nevertheless Islam will reign supreme.

    Victory is on the way inshallah!

Al-Khwaarij calls muslims kaffirs then kills them . you guys have called every muslim a kaffirs how can you call the king of suadi a kaffir fear allah …
    Narrated Ibn ‘Abbas: The Prophet said, “If somebody sees his Muslim ruler doing something he disapproves of, he should be patient, for whoever becomes separate from the Muslim group even for a span and then dies, he will die as those who died in the Pre-lslamic period of ignorance (as rebellious sinners). (See Hadith No. 176 and 177)
    so why r u calling them kaffirs . then again you are showing signs of being khwaarij may allah help you. AND I DARE YOUR SHIEKH TO SPEAK ABOUT THIS MATTER … TELL HIM TO TELL YOU WHAT IS THE CONDITIONS OF JIHAD AND WHAT THE SCHOLARS SAY ABOUT IT IN THIS OF AGE. and tell him to tell you when u can go against your ruler. alhumdiliah may allah reward shiekh anwar he has made great lectures but he is not clear on where he stands why is he hiding something allah knows best. SO I AM ASKING YOUR SHIEKH TO MAKE A LECTURE ABOUT IMAM AHMED AND HIS LIFE AND MAKE A BLOG OR WHATEVER TELLING YOU GUYS WHEN TO REBEL AGAINST THE RULER.

    who real cares about what both of you think, if you are muslims than provide the evidence from the Quran and Sunnah NOT FROM DEMO-CRAZY OR HYPOCRITES SHEIYUKH.

    ALSO i rather be a terrorist which i’m walhamdulillah , than an ugly chameleon jew or a saudi talafi murji’a munafiq dog of the crusaders

    and your are arguement of time to seek knowledge is invalid because first

    1)now islam is fully complet and we dont need any extra knowledge from hypocrites taghouts scholars, the knowledge of keetab Allah azza wa jall and the sunnah of rasoullAllah salalAllahu alaihi wasalam are enough, we only need thruthful and courageuse scholars to remind the Ummah about the principals of islam such as JIHAD.

    2)jihad to defend the deen of Allah comes before knowledge because jihad it self is the knowlodge and it is the pic of knowledge.

    therefore i highly suggest to go back to your saudi murji’a hypocrites sheiyukh zionists lovers and ask them how to gain “chemeleons art of camouflage” in order for you to spy on muslims properly because right now you are exposed by the will of Allah.

So what do you think of that funny shoe throwing incident? I said – It was very funny. They all laughed at it watching the you-tube replay on it again and again. Mr. Dave said its good to see something funnier on news channels these days; it made my day go by in good spirit. Well of course not all present appreciated and joined in the cheers, Miss Cindy is red neck republican hot shot old lady just kept a bland look, but did not say anything.

    Mudsir: if only knowledgeable people talked about it our armies would be filled with only the elderly. Islam itself is under attack. Look up Obama’s new appointee Dennis Ross. He is a colleague of Daniel Pipes and Pipes is probably a bigger enemy to Islam than Bush or Clinton combined. What they are doing is changing Islam in the minds of many many people and that is not okay. If a kafir is introducing bidah then you kill that kafir. I would rather lose my entire family than to let Islam be changed. One bidah could destroy thousands. We have become obsessed with the dunya and forgotten the akhira. They have stopped teaching jihad altogether. Whenever you mention it in the states people look around and then tell you to shush. If we forget jihad how are we to defend ourselves. If it is the time of “Makkah” then why aren’t there fatwas telling is to move to “Madinah.” Those who have refused Islam have been destroyed all throughout history and usually by “weaker” armies and individuals. After their destruction they have become Muslims usually.

    “When Allah wishes good for someone, He bestows upon him the understanding of Deen”

    Bukhari and Muslim

    May ALLAH give Sheikh Anwar Janat ul-Firdaus for his efforts to educate the masses of today of our responsibilities as Muslims. What makes me laugh is that MashaALLAH, before the likes of “disagree” and “mudsir” responded to his most recent post, the noble Sheikh Anwar spoke about them already in his previous post entitled, “A Muslim for the Sake of the Disbelievers”

    I honestly wonder if these people read that post prior to reading his latest one. From the looks of it, most likely not. The reason why I say this is because some of the things Sheikh Anwar mentioned can CLEARLY be seen in some of these people:

    This Muslim is so aggressive and intolerant with his fellow Muslims but is tolerant and kind towards the disbelievers. He is an extremist with Muslims and a moderate with disbelievers.
    “Whenever the interests of the disbelievers are threatened or harmed by Muslims he is the first to jump to their defense. He would speak against his brothers and betray them.” and compare this to what “disagree” posted: “In islam when someone grants you protection that means no one can touch him. And G.Bush was granted that protection so which makes it wrong for us. You also have to ask the ruler to preform such act.”

    This person is so ignorant, he is concerned about the protection of the Pharaoh of our time. GWB has ordered the plundering of Muslim wealth, occupation of Muslim land, killing of hundreds of thousands of innocent Muslims, whose armies have raped our women, who tortures the innocent in Guantanamo Bay and Abu Ghuraib, has and continues to support the brutal zionist occupation of Muslim land of Palestine include the Baitul-Maqdis with help of military and wealth like no other nation on earth. None of this makes this person upset, but throwing shoes at GWB does. The irony of this person’s statement that the ruler should grant permission for such an act, is that he expects the Ahlus-Sunnah of Iraq seek the permission of the Murtad kafir shi’ah Nur al-Maliki (May ALLAH curse him) who belongs to the very government appointed by GWB himself. My question is, SINCE WHEN ARE THE AHLUS-SUNNAH supposed to seek permission from the shi’ah to do ANYTHING?!!!! All of the ahadith that command the Muslims to obey the ruler refer to a MUSLIM ruler (i.e. the Khalifah), not a puppet Shi’ah who hates the Sunnah, the Sahabah, loves the Pharaoh GWB and TB, submits to a kafir constitution, the U.N., NATO, and fights those who wish to implement the Shari’ah.

  134. Ibn AdamNo Gravatar says:

    The clear and correct response to the saudi-salafi’s of today: Part 2:

    One of the things that “disagree” tells the Muslims to do is, “brother why is it hard for you to see that this is not the time for jihad and we ARE WEAK we need to get stronger and seek knowledge. Please don’t mislead the youth with these false stuff.”

    My response to this is:

    1. The Khilafah was destroyed over 80 years ago, WHAT PREPARATIONS AND PLANNING HAVE YOU SO-CALLED SAUDI-SALAFI’S BEEN DOING SINCE???? May ALLAH reward Sheikh Anwar al-Awlaki with Jannatul Firdaus, he (yet again) spoke about these people in an earlier post entitled, “A Question about the Method of Establishing Khilafa”

    The proposed methods that Islamic groups presented for re-establishing al Khilafah are:

    1. Through tarbiyyah and then somehow when our condition changes the khilafa will be re-established again. While others say we will do tarbiyyah until the ummah is ready and then we will fight the enemies of Allah.

    “The proponents of the first method have never given the ummah any benchmark to when we have done sufficient tarbiyyah to move on to the stage of implementation and therefore will remain in a perpetual state of tarbiyyah while negating the duty of Jihad.

    They also miss the point that tarbiyyah is within one generation and not multigenerational. Meaning the change that Rasulullah brought which started with dawa and ended with jihad was within the lifetime of one generation. It all happened within 23 years. Every other successful change in the ummah occurred within one generation. History is a testimony to this.”

    These people are PRECISELY what Sheikh Anwar is talking about. If you go to their websites, their Masjids, or their conferences, they have no action plan for the establishment of the Khilafah. All they talk about is, gain knowledge. 80 years of gaining knowledge, and yet our situation is getting worse and worse. What knowledge do we need to gain? All you will hear them say is, “memorize Qur-an, study Kitab ul-Tawheed”, “40 Hadith Nawawi, ‘Aqeedah Wasatiyyah, learn arabic, etc.” My question is, when do we progress to the next level? When you go to the secular schools, when you pass grade 1, you move on to grade 2, and so on. What about Islam? Is it the Sunnah to study ‘Aqeedah ONLY FOR 80 YEARS, WITH NO END IN SIGHT???? What is also funny about these people, is that they will debate about such issues like the permissibility of wearing shoes while praying, but ignore the responsibilities of Jihad in lands today where it needs to be implemented. Again, Sheikh Anwar discussed this in an earlier post entitled, “Finding a Balance”

    “The problem is not in talking about the sunnah in matters that one may assume to be trivial but the problem is when one talks about the beard to the exclusion of Tawhid, wearing the clothes above the ankle to the exclusion of Jihad, or the miswak to the exclusion of wala and bara.
    On the other hand, it is even a more serious problem when people occupy themselves with the mustahab ( the recommended) and ignore the major issues, some of which are issues of aqeedah. There are some that escape from the responsibilities that demand sacrifice to the safety of the easy rituals. We need to take Islam as a whole. We should follow Quran and the way of Rasulullah in all matters.”

    None of these saudi salafi groups discuss the obligation of Jihad today, nor do they provide an action plan to be implemented to help in the restoration of the Khilafah. Do we just study Kitab-ul-Tawheed and other select books perpetually? My other issue with this comment is this: When the Jihad in Afghanistan was going on in the 80’s (almost 20 years ago) against the former Soviet Union, where were these people who were saying that “now is a time of weakness, no the time of Jihad, so let us seek knowledge”? Were they not going up against a super power also? There was no disagreement at that time that this was Jihad, to the point that Fahd gave free airline tickets to those who wished to participate in it. Why was the war against the Soviet Union a Jihad, and the war against the US, a “fitnah”??? In all fairness, there isn’t much wealth in Afghanistan, nor as many Muslims living there as there are in ‘Iraq, so shouldn’t the war in ‘Iraq be an even GREATER and MORE SIGNIFICANT JIHAD???? The explanation is this: Afghanistan was a Jihad BECAUSE it was a war against an enemy of uncle sam (oh yeah, we were also defending Muslims, their land, blah blah blah). The war in ‘Iraq is NOT a Jihad, BECAUSE IT IS AGAINST UNCLE SAM HIMSELF! HOW CAN FIGHTING UNCLE SAM BE JIHAD? SO WHAT IF THEY ARE KILLING MUSLIMS, RAPING MUSLIM WOMEN, STEALING MUSLIM WEALTH, AND FORCING MUSLIMS TO FOLLOW SECULAR LAWS? SO WHAT? WHO CARES? THE FACT IS THIS IS NOT A JIHAD!!! (FYI, my tone is sarcastic, as I firmly believe there is no difference between the fighting in Afghanistan with the fighting in ‘Iraq. These are Muslim lands that need to be defended at all costs, but unfortunately, the saudi-salafi’s make a distinction on the value of Muslim life, land, honour, and blood depending on whose interests it is serving). So how come 20 years ago we were strong enough to fight Russia, and 20 years later, we are too weak to fight uncle sam? Sure, these saudi salafi’s may argue, “but we were getting help from uncle sam to fight the russians! That is why we were strong!” My response is, “there is NO WAY you can compare whatever trivial help and support the Mujahideen received from uncle sam (and not all groups fighting the russians received help from them by the way) vs the military force employed by the russians that was being used against them. No comparison. None. Period. What is more alarming to be about this point is this: UNCLE SAM IS ACTUALLY LOSING IN ‘IRAQ AND AFGHANISTAN!!! THEY ARE NOT WINNING. AND THE PROOF IS SEEING HOW THEY ARE BEING FORCED TO LEAVE ‘IRAQ SINCE THEIR OWN CITIZENS ARE NOT SUPPORTING THEM. Even the Amir of the saudi salafi’s GWB admitted that his “mission accomplished” statement was a big mistake. With uncle same tied up in 2 wars that they are losing, draining their economy dry, AND NOW YOU WANT THE MUSLIMS TO SURRENDER, GIVE UP OUR WEALTH, OUR LAND, OUR WOMEN, OUR LAWS???? DO YOU LOVE AMERICA THAT MUCH? Do some research, EVEN THE AMERICAN’S THEMSELVES DO NOT BELIEVE THEY ARE WINNING THE WARS IN IRAQ, NOR IN AFGHANISTAN. Another point about these saudi salafi’s: Everything they accuse you of, they are guilty of themselves. If you advocate the blind following of a madh-hab ie. taqleed (which I don’t btw), they will go after you and quote Hadith and narrations from Sahabah, and other classical scholars condemning this. However, they are guilty of it themselves with respect to Sheikh Ibn Bazz, Sheikh Ibn Uthaimeen (May ALLAH have Mercy upon them both), etc. Are there not any other scholars of Ahlus-Sunnah in the world, OTHER than the government appointed scholars of the Saudi Royal family? Another issue they are guilty of: If you speak out against the rulers, they tell you not to, otherwise you are Khawarij. The Saudi Royal Family and the Jordanian Royal Family are the Khawarij of today!!! Both families received support from the british to fight against the Ottoman Khilafah.

    What is pretty pathetic, is that in the book, “Things that nullify one’s Islam” by Sheikh Abdul Wahhab, point #8 is: “Trying to give the polytheists victory and assisting them against the Muslims.” The noble Sheikh says, “The eighth kind of apostasy is aiding the polytheists against the Muslims, and giving the polytheists assistance against the Muslims. This means to help the disbelievers in killing or hurting the Muslims. Similarly, whoever loves the disbelievers has disbelieved. This is the meaning of taking them as allies: “And whoever of you takes them as allies, then verily he is from them.” 5:51 According to the twisted logic of these saudi salafi’s, if King Abdullah supports uncle sam in helping to attack Iraq, and loves the US president who is at war with Muslims who wish to establish Shari’ah, then these are just his personal sins. However, if you work together with other Muslims, who have issues with their ‘Aqeedah (as we see many of the du’at in the west today) then these people are off the manhaj, deviant, etc. Islam for us, but not for the Saudi King? The Prophet SAW not only established the Shari’ah, but was also bound by it, but the Kind of Saudi Arabia is exempt?!!

    For the record, King AbdulAziz fought two Muslim rulers, and would therefore be a Khawarij twice over. Once against the Ottoman Khalifah, and the other against Sharif Hussein of Makkah who was the ruler of Hijaz (and fellow Khawarij) as appointed by the british. When King Abdul Aziz does it, not a Khawarij. When you go against the Saudi Royal family, Khawarij. Right. Now these same saudi salafi’s may argue, “The Ottoman’s were doing bid’ah, they were doing grave worship, blah blah blah.” And that means what? You can take money from the british and FIGHT THE WHOLE KHILAFAT? WHY NOT JUST CHANGE THE SULTAN RESPONSIBLE FOR THE INNOVATIONS? AREN’T YOU THE SAME ONE WHO WAS SAYING TO LOOK AT THE LIFE OF IMAM AHMAD? THE KHALIFAH OF HIS TIME WAS A MU’TAZILAH AND SPREADING THE KUFR BELIEF THAT THE QUR-AN WAS CREATED. IMAM AHMAD (MAY ALLAH HAVE MERCY ON HIM) WAS THE LAST REMAINING SCHOLAR WHO FOUGHT THIS DEVIANT IDEOLOGY TO THE BITTER END, YET DID NOT MAKE TAKFIR ON THE KHALIFAH, NOR DID HE ADVOCATE RISING UP AND FIGHTING AGAINST THE KHALIFAH. Where are those saudi salafi’s? WHICH OF YOU FOLLOWED THE EXAMPLE OF IMAM AHMAD? DIDN’T ANY OF YOU READ HIS LIFE HISTORY, OR HIS TEACHINGS? WHAT ABOUT SHARIF HUSSEIN OF MAKKAH? WHAT DEVIANT TEACHINGS OF ISLAM WAS HE SPREADING? WHAT WAS THE EXCUSE OF KING ABDUL AZIZ TO FIGHT AGAINST HIM? Both were on the british payroll.
    Compare this with the Sheikh ul Islam for britain, Robert Quilliam who was appointed by the Khalifah, Sultan Abdul Hamid II: Shaikh Quilliam on British foreign policy in Sudan

    In the name of God, Most Compassionate, Most Merciful!

    Peace be to all True-Believers to whom this shall come!

    Know ye, O Muslims, that the British Government has decided to commence military and warlike operations against the Muslims of the Soudan, who have taken up arms to defend their country and their faith. And it is in contemplation to employ Muslim soldiers to fight against these Muslims of the Soudan.

    For any True Believer to take up arms and fight against another Muslim is contrary to the Shariat, and against the law of God and his holy prophet.

    I warn every True-Believer that if he gives the slightest assistance in this projected expedition against the Muslims of the Soudan, even to the extent of carrying a parcel, or giving a bite of bread to eat or a drink of water to any person taking part in the expedition against these Muslims that he thereby helps the Giaour against the Muslim, and his name will be unworthy to be continued upon the roll of the faithful.

    The clear and correct response to the saudi-salafi’s of today: Part 4:

    One would imagine that a Muslim who follows the Qur-an and the Sunnah as understood and practiced by the Salaf would be happy to see the enemies of Islam defeated, and humiliated, and would rejoice and celebrate seeing the Mujahideen and the Muslims victorious. In the case of the saudi salafi’s, the opposite is true. On the issue of seeking knowledge from the scholars, look at this beautiful quote (also used by Sheikh Anwar in his lecture on the “Constants on the path of Jihad”, “Shaykh al-Islaam Ibn Taymiyyah (ra) narrates from Imaam ‘Abdullaah Ibn al-Mubaarak and Imaam Ahmad ibn Hanbal that they said, “If the people disagree (ikhtilaaf) regarding anything, then look at what the Mujaahidoon say- since the Truth is with them; because Allaah says, “As for those who wage Jihaad in Us (for Our Cause), We will surely guide them to Our Paths.” al-‘Ankaboot: 69. Refer to Majmoo’ al-Fataawaa (28/442).”

    The saudi salafi’s want us to do the opposite. Are Ibn Taymiyyah and Imam Ahmad (May ALLAH have Mercy upon them both) wrong? Whom should we follow? For additional readings and proofs against these people, here are some good links:

    My advice to myself, to these people, and others is to read Sheikh Anwar’s earlier post: to get a good break down of the various solutions available to Muslims, and help forge a REAL plan that will bring victory to the Muslims over the kuffar, and not just spew empty rhetoric.
    May ALLAH guide all Muslims to the right path, may ALLAH destroy all of the enemies of Islam in the dunya and the Akhirah, May ALLAH make a path to Jannah easy for Sheikh Anwar al-Awlaki and for myself, my family and all others who respect his knowledge, and May ALLAH allow us to live long enough to witness the birth of the Khilafah during our lifetime. Ameen. SubhanakALLAH hummah wa bihamdik. Ash-hadu Al-laa ilaaha illa ant. Nastaghfiruka wa natubu ilaik.

    Asalamu Alaikum wa Rahmatulahi Wa Barakatuhu dear brothers and sisters in Islam, may Allah Azza Wa Jall reward you for your deeds and speaking and standing for the haqq. I was thinking maybe all the Muslims around the world should go buy a pair of shoes and head to the American, British and the Illegal state of Israel embassies around the world. Some of us have done lots of practice during the Hajj at the Jamaraat!

    Now, to the Kuffar sympathizers and the RAND MOZLEMZ: loving and sympathizing for your kuffar associates and waiting for your next American Pharaoh, and Dajjal’s advocates, Obama, and his Zionist cabinet to bring us our solution is not going to work.
    The UiSrael Dajjal Forces’ injustices in Philistine, Iraq, Afghanistan, Somalia and now Pakistan, shows America’s and the Illegal State of Israel’s imperialism to attack all Muslims across the globe. These attacks are all geared against Islam and Muslims. The biggest part of the UiSrael’s so called “war on terror” is to fight against the Khilafah and the Islamic State. Their Plan on their so called “war on terror” will inevitably fail because what they are really fighting against is Allah’s Deen, the Sunnah of our Noble Prophet, (peace be upon him), and the Khilafah which is by the way very near to emerge again in their very midst.
    So you the Kuffar sympathizer and the RAND Mozlem, rather than avoiding Jihadfeesabililah and waiting for your Zionists saviors, why don’t you pay attention and obey Allah’s Commandment in the Noble Quran like the Mujahideen and the true Muslims:
    “So let those fight in the cause of Allah who sell the life of this world for the Hereafter. And he who fights in the cause of Allah and is killed or achieves victory – We will bestow upon him a great reward.
    And what is [the matter] with you that you fight not in the cause of Allah and [for] the oppressed among men, women, and children who say, “Our Lord, take us out of this city of oppressive people and appoint for us from Yourself a protector and appoint for us from Yourself a helper?”
    Those who believe fight in the cause of Allah, and those who disbelieve fight in the cause of Taghut. So fight against the allies of Satan. Indeed, the plot of Satan has ever been weak.”

    [Surah An-Nisaa, Ayat 74-76]

    In Abu Dawud, Book 17: Wages; Hadith 3455, we read a hadith of the Prophet [PBUH]: Narrated by Abdullah Ibn Umar: ‘I heard the Messenger of Allah, Peace be upon him, say: “If you (1) practice Tabaiya Al-Ainiya transactions (that is, selling goods to a person for a certain price and then buying them back from him for a far less price or dealing in interest), (2) and followed the tails of the cows (that is indulging in agriculture for piling up wealth and became contented with it) (3) and give up conducting the Jihad (that is, fighting) in Allah’s Cause, Allah will cover you with humiliation and it will not be removed until you return back to your Deen, (that is, the religion of Islam).”’ — [Sahih]
    To get you started inshallah for seeing with your other “eye” and removing the mental blindness please consider the following two Ayat of the many Ayat where “Terrorism” and “Corruption” is defined and who is a “Terrorist” and a “Corrupter”, plus what a “Torturer” gets in this life and the next.
    “Indeed, Pharaoh exalted himself in the land and made its people into factions, oppressing a sector among them, slaughtering their sons and keeping their females alive. Indeed, he was of the corrupters.

    [Surah Al-Qasas, Ayat 4]
    Indeed, those who have tortured the believing men and believing women and then have not repented will have the punishment of Hell, and they will have the punishment of the Burning Fire.”

    [Surah Al-Buruj, Ayat 10]

    Dear brothers and sisters in Islam, insh’Allah the UiSrael’s imperialism is bound to doom! Don’t you see what is currently happening in the world? Don’t you hear and understand what our great scholars such as Imam Anwar are talking about? Don’t you see the breakdown of western economies and their corrupted materialist systems? The Kuffar with thier haram interest based economies have spent all their money trying to fight a battle that they will never win Insh’Allah and they are still demanding and sending more of their “soon to be dead troops” to Afghanistan. Please join in the Jihadfeesabililah and inshAllah you will share in the rewards in this life and the next. Let us all be one united block behind the Ameerul Mumineen and our true scholars and Imams and wage the mighty Jihad asked by our Creator, Allah Azza Wa Jall, the Creator of the heavens and the earth and all that exist, to bring back Tawheed, the Justice and Morality needed by the Ummah.

    The hindu terrorist police of India, arrested a Muslim brother after his colleagues called up the cops and complained that the Muslim was very happy. The hindu terrorist cops then picked up the cops and tried to find out if he has links to the mujahideen. As of today they claimed to have found mainstream newspaper clippings regarding mujahideen and a copy of the letter the brother had written to the president of india seeking a presidential pardon for one of the mujahideen.

    Just for the benefit for all that don’t know: India is the largest democracy in the world and claims freedom of expression is a fundamental right of its citizen!

    I hate saudi talafi murji’ah for the sake of Allah


    The Murji’ah are called Murj’ah because they make the actions (deeds) fall behind the faith (Iman). Irjaa’ means to delay.

    1-Al-Murji’ah al-Mutakallimoon.

    Jahm Ibn Safwan and those who followed him say: Iman is only what is affirmed and known by the heart. They don’t consider the actions of the heart from Iman.
    They thought that a man can be a total believer in his heart even if he curses Allah, his prophet, fights the Awliyaa’ of Allah, supports the enemies of Allah, destroys Masjids, humiliate the Qur’an and the
    believers, be generous with the
    kuffar…etc. They say that these are all sins that do not harm Iman in a man’s heart.
    They say he can do this and he is a inside (in heart) a believer in the
    sight of Allah. They say we only affirm the rules of disbelief in this life to the one who does all of the horrible actions mentioned above because these sayings and actions are a sign for his disbelief.

    If you present to them the Quran, Sunnah and the consensus that a man who does these actions is a disbeliever because of made these actions above, they respond
    that these actions are a sign that there is no affirmation and knowledge in his heart.
    Disbelief to them is only one thing: Ignorance; belief to them is only
    one thing: knowledge; or the denial and affirmation of the heart. They differed in whether the affirmation of the heart is something different from knowledge or whether it is the same. Even though this definition of Iman is the worst, many
    of “al-Murji’ah al-Mutakallimoon” adopted it.

    Many of the Salaf, like Wakee’ ibn al-Jarrah, Ahmad ibn Hanbal, Abi Abaid, and others, declared those who define Iman the way of “al-Murji’ah al-Mutakallimoon” as disbelievers. These Scholars said that Satan is a disbeliever as stated in
    the Qur’an. The disbelief of Satan was because of his arrogance, and refusal to bow down to Adam, not because he denied a saying of Allah. The same is the case
    of Far’awn and his people.

    Allah says:
    “And they belied them (those Ayat) wrongfully and arrogantly, though their ownselves were convinced thereof” [27:14]

    Mussa Said also to Fir’awn,

    “Verily, you know that these signs have been sent down by none but the Lord of the heavens and the earth as clear” [17:102]

    As you can see, Mussa alaihi salam, the truthful says the above to Fir’awn, which is a proof
    that Fir’awn used to know that Allah reveals the signs, and yet he was from the most stubborn and transgressor individuals because of his corrupted will not because of his lack of knowledge. Allah Says,

    “Verily, Fir’aun (Pharaoh) exalted himself in the land and made its people sects, weakening (oppressing) a group (i.e. Children of Israel) among them, killing their sons, and letting their females live. Verily, he was of the Mufsidun (i.e. those who commit great sins and crimes, oppressors, tyrants,
    etc.).” [28:4]

    PART two:

    2-Murj’at al-Fuqahaa’

    Murji’at al-Fuqahaa’ are those who say that Iman is the affirmation of the heart and the saying of the tongue. They don’t consider the deeds (actions) from Iman.
    Murji’at al-Fuqahaa used to be some jurists and worshippers from Kufa (a city in Iraq). They used to affirm that a person is not a Muslim unless he says the word of Iman (Shahadah) while he is able to do it unlike “Jahm Ibn Safwaan.”
    Murji’at al-Fuqahaa’ recognized that Satan, Fir’awn and the other
    disbelievers used to believe in their hearts that what the messengers are conveying is the truth.

    However, if Murji’at al-Fuqahaa’ did not affirm that the actions of the hearts are from Iman, then their argument will be similar to what “Jahm Ibn Safwaan” said.
    Murji’at al-Fuqahaa’ denied that Iman increases and decreases because of
    the deeds. However, they used to say that Iman used to increase before the
    completion of the revelation; i.e. whenever Allah reveals a new verse then it is obligatory to affirm it, and this affirmation (Tasdeeq) is added to the previous affirmations of other verses. Thus, but the end of the revelation, Iman ceased to increase.
    After the revelation they used to say that the Iman of all the Muslims is the same; the Iman of the first generations like Abu Bakr and Umar is the same as the Iman of the most disobedient people like al-Hajjaj Abu Muslim al-Khurasani, and other then them.

    3-Irjaa’ in our Time

    Irjaa’ in our time is wide spread whether amongst the common people or those who work for Islam and Dawah.

    • The Irjaa amongst the common people is well known: “Iman is in the heart,”
    they don’t pay attention to the deeds rather they ignore and belittle the
    actions of the limbs by making excuses that the Iman of the heart and the pure intention is all that matters.

    • The Irjaa’ of those who work for islam and Dawah is not in the definition of Iman.
    They define Iman a good definition as a name. They say Iman is the saying
    of the tongue, belief of the heart, actions of the limbs.
    They say Iman is by sayings and
    actions, and this is the correct definition of Iman amongst the
    people of Ahl-us-Sunnah Wal-Jama’ah.

    HOEVER, when it comes to applying this definition especially about the
    matters that negates Iman, it appears clearly that the “actions of the limbs” that they affirmed in the definition of Iman is not applied.

    Yes most of the new murji’a, say that Iman increases by the good deeds and decreases by the bad deeds exactly as Ahlus-Sunnah affirm.
    HOEVER, sins to them only decrease
    Iman, but never negate Iman, except in one situation: if there is rejection, Istihlaal, or belief in the heart, irregardless of how great is that sin or deed.
    They say that eventhough the prophet clarified and said, “Iman is seventy
    and something branches, the best of these branches is the declaration of “La ilaha illa Allah”, and the lowest of these branches is removing harmful objects from the road; Hayaa’ (Modesty) is (also) a part of Iman.” Reported by Muslim and others.

    The Khwaarij and those who followed them from the extreme Takfeeris make the absence of any branch of the branches of Iman as a negation of Iman.
    The Neo-Murji’ah say, as a reaction for the action of the Khwaarij, that the absence of all of the branches of Iman cause a decrease in Iman only. They don’t consider any of
    these branches as something that negates Iman except if there is Istihlaal, Juhood or belief. Both, the Khwaarij and the Neo-Murji’ah are upon Misguidance.

    Thus not all the branches of Iman are the same. The branch of “Laa Ilaha Illa Allah” is not the same as Hayaa’ or removing harmful objects form the road. The absence of some of these branches can decrease Iman like Hayaa’, and the absence
    of some of these brances can negate Iman like the declaration of “Laa Ilaha Illa Allah.”

    asalamu alaikum brothers and sisters

    (I hate saudi talafi murji’ah for the sake of Allah , one of them told me , he will give me up to the kuffar police).


    The Neo-Murji’ah don’t consider any deed as a deed that negates Islam by itself. They say it has to be accompanied by Istihlaal, Jihood, or belief, this is the Kuffr according to them. Wether this Kuffr is the Kuffr is cursing Allah, bowing down to an idol, legislating with Allah, ridiculing the Deen of Allah, all of these actions are not actions of disbelief by themselves, but they say that these actions are a sign that the doer believes in Kuffr. Kuffr is his belief, his denial, or his Istihlaal (not the action itself). Therefore, the Neo-Murji’ah
    opened a great door for evil against the Muslims. Many of those disbelievers, atheists, hypocrates and Zanadeeq started attacking the Deen of Allah with ease and confort.

    The Neo-Murji’ah make excuses for the Tawaagheet and the apostates.
    They argue in defense of the Tawagheet and the Apostates with some doubts that the Tawagheet themselves never thought of, or heart of.
    Those Tawagheet never found sincere soldiers to defend them and protect their falsehood similar to the Neo-Murji’ah.

    That is why some of the Salaf said about Irjaa’: “It is a religion that pleases the Kings,” and some of them said, “We fear their Fitnah (Murji’ah) more than the Fitnah of the Khwaarij.” They used to say “Khwaarij are less in evil than the Murji’ah,” which is a true statement.

    The initial reason for the extremism of the Khwaarij was their anger for the boundaries of Allah as they claim.

    The Murji’ah, however, their way encourage the people to exceed the boundaries of Allah, the orders and the commands of Allah, and to open the doors of apostasy to make it easy for the disbelievers, and apostates (to make excuses for themselves, and continue in their evil.”

    Yes from now onwards this has to become our standard reaction.

    We don’t agree with this sheikh and that and start throwing shoes at everyone we disagree with.

    So muslims will at least come out of the terrorist tag and get the shoe throwers tag.

    Yes, I can see how the media will play this out to put this tag on Muslims. They will say that all muslims are not shoe throwers but all shoe throwers are Muslims.

    Yes the Ummah and all the Shaikhs should encourage throwing shoes from now onwards.

    Well I can see a series of lectures on the benefit of shoe throwing.

    Yes teach your children to throw shoes at an early age. And keep these shoe throwers in our duas.

    May Allah (swt) protect the shoe throwers.

    I would like to suggest to the respected shaykh that he close this blog down. Unfortunately it is doing more harm then good. People do not obviously appreciate the fiqh of discussion and difference of opinion. So much takefeer and slandering is going on here it unbelievable. Alot of brothers will have to answer for the words they are typing on the day of judgement. Some people have become so loose in what they write it is beyond belief. Please shaykh i request you to close this blogg, it is your responsibility and you are providing the platfrom for all this hate amonsgt, what are muslim brothers at the end of the day.

    We may disagree with one another but please do so with adab. This seems to be lost now a days. Everyone is quoting Quran and Hadith and asking for daleel, but the most basic of things such as how to speak to one another has vanished.


  172. Abu AmarNo Gravatar says:

    The companion ‘Abdullaah Ibn ‘Abbaas, may Allaah be pleased with him, narrated that the Prophet sallallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam said: “Five matters result when five things happen: If people break their covenant with Allaah, He will send an enemy against them; If they rule by other than the Law of Allaah, poverty will spread among them; If they become deceptive in trade, Allaah will deprive them of crops and they will be struck with famine; And if they withhold the payment of Zakaah, they will be struck with drought.” (Tabaraani). In another narration he sallallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam said: “If they break the covenant of Allaah and His Messenger, Allaah will send an external enemy against them who will seize some of their possessions; If they do not rule by the Book of Allaah, nor attempt to implement everything in it, Allaah will spread enmity among them.”

    This is a comprehensive clarification of the conditions for victory and the causes of defeat for the Muslim nation. Breaking the covenant of Allaah and His messenger, or in other words, disobeying Allaah and His messenger, is one of the reasons for its defeat and being subjugated by its enemies. Likewise, ruling by other than the rulings of Allaah is the reason for the poverty, disunity and conflict which is occurring among the Muslims.

    Conversely, obeying Allaah and His Messenger sallallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam is the source of victory. Allaah says that which translates as: “O you who have believed, if you support Allaah, He will support you [by giving you victory].” (Muhammad: 7).

    Sa’d Ibn Abi Waqqaas, may Allaah be pleased with him, was checking on his army during the battle of Qaadisiyyah. He passed by the tent of one group of soldiers at night and found the men inside praying Qiyaam, or voluntary night-prayer, and remarked: ‘Victory comes from such a tent’ then he passed by another tent and found the men inside sleeping and remarked: ‘Defeat comes from such a tent.’ This was despite the fact that the men who were sleeping only missed a recommended prayer and not an obligatory one; yet Sa’d considered missing this recommended act to be a reason for defeat.

    Qutaybah Ibn Muslim, who was a great Muslim conqueror, was the leader of Khurasaan when it was being attacked. He passed by Muhammad Ibn Waasi’, who was one of the Taabi’een, or the generation that followed the Sahaabah, while Muhammad had his finger raised towards the heavens supplicating to Allaah. Thereupon Qutaybah remarked: ‘That finger is dearer to me than thirty thousand soldiers’.

    How can the Muslims expect Allaah to grant them victory while they are discarding prayers, refusing to pay Zakaah and dealing in interest? What can they expect when alcoholic drinks and nightclubs become prevalent in their lands? What happens when evil becomes widespread?

    The Prophet sallallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam was once asked: “Would we be punished by disasters which befall us while we have righteous people amongst us?’ he sallallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam replied: “Yes, if evil becomes widespread.” Allaah says that which translates as: “And fear an affliction which will not strike those who have wronged among you exclusively, and know that Allaah is severe in penalty.” (Al-Anfaal: 25).

    Therefore, if Muslims truly wish for victory, then they must change what is in themselves as Allaah says that which translates as: “…Indeed Allaah will not change the condition of a people until they change what is in themselves …” (Ar-Ra’d: 11).

    A Muslim must not feel despair and lose hope in Allaah, as He may grant Muslims victory due to some of the oppressed or weak righteous people amongst them who cannot defend themselves. The Prophet sallallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam said: “You are provided for and granted victory due to the weak amongst you”.

    It is a fact that the leaders and rulers of the Muslims will be as unjust and oppressive as the Muslims are amongst themselves and their leaders will be dealt with as they deal with their subjects. Imaam Ibn Al-Qayyim said: ‘Reflect on the wisdom of Allaah when the Muslims are subjugated by their enemies as a result of the powerful amongst them (Muslims) oppressing the weak and denying the rights of the oppressed. Due to this, Allaah will send those who will dominate these Muslim leaders and deal with them exactly as they dealt with the weak, an eye for an eye. This is the way of Allaah from the time history began to when it will end.

    Look how Allaah has given the Muslims exactly the types of rulers that their own deeds and actions deserve. It is as though their actions are manifested in the form of their leaders and rulers. Therefore, whenever people are just among themselves, their rulers will be just to them; whenever people defraud and cheat each other, their rulers will do likewise to them; and if the people fail to fulfil the rights of the Allaah, then their rulers will fail to give them their rights.

    A man asked ‘Ali ibn Abu Taalib, may Allaah be pleased with him: “Why have difficulties and hardships arisen during your time, while this was not the case at the time of Abu Bakr and ‘Umar?” he replied to him: “‘Umar and Abu Bakr were leaders over people like myself while I am a leader over people like you’.

    O Muslims! One of the major signs of abandoning the religion is to forsake prayers. This is done by either not praying at all, or by only praying the Jumu’ah prayer and neglecting the rest of the daily prayers. The Prophet sallallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam said: “The bonds of Islaam will be broken one by one; the first of which will be the implementation of Islamic legislation and the last of which will be prayers” and he sallallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam also said as narrated by Jaabir, may Allaah be pleased with him: “What lies between a man and disbelief is the abandonment of prayers.” (Muslim). He sallallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam also said: “Prayer is the backbone of the religion, he who establishes it has established his religion and he who does not establish has abandoned faith.”

    Praying is the first thing that one will be held accountable for on the Day of Judgement and it was among the final things that the Prophet sallallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam strongly emphasised on before his death. Allaah described the believers with that which translates as: “…Those who [carefully] maintain their prayer.” (Al-Ma’aarij: 34) and also that which translates as: “Indeed, prayer has been decreed upon the believers at specified times.” (An-Nisaa’: 103).

    The Prophet sallallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam also informed us that there will come after him rulers who will abandon prayers or delay their performance when he sallallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam advised us to: “Pray on time, then pray with them as an optional prayer.”

    I have a question

    We say that Saudi have helped the U.S. and that the rulers are kuffars because they helped disbelievers kill
    thousands of Muslims and allowed them to enter the holy places.

    Sheikh Ibn Baz stated (Al-Fatawa 1/274): “There is a consensus amongst the scholars that whoever supports the disbelievers against the believers (Dhahar Al-Kuffar ‘Ala Al-Muslimeen), and assists them by any means of assistance, then he is a disbeliever just like them (the disbelievers he supported)…”

    I also heard that Sheikh Ibn Baz released a Fatawa allowing U.S.A to enter the holy lands.

    So what do we say about Sheikh Ibn Baz (Please don’t get me wrong but I’m just Asking this question)

    I ‘d like to add to your statement ya akhi Abu Nalib, may Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala protect you and increase your Imaan and rank:

    “Remember when the hypocrites and those in whose hearts was disease said, ‘Their religion has deluded those Muslims.’ But whoever relies upon Allah – then indeed, Allah is Exalted in Might and Wise.”

    “Give tidings to the hypocrites that there is for them a painful punishment-
    Those who take disbelievers as allies instead of the believers. Do they seek with them honor through power? But indeed, honor belongs to Allah entirely.”

    The companions of the prophet differed on their treatment of individuals throwing projectiles towards their leaders. Uthman bin Affan tolerated it but Muwayia did not and ordered the exectution of a person due to it. Even though the person was correct in his view towards a local ruler who was making a mistake.

    Whatever happened, happened. Now its become a debate in the parliament there. As if all the problems of the country are solved. The trial is delayed as rarely something gets done on time in the our countries. The solution is to give the a chance in front of a judge and let the judge look at the case and give him a suspended sentence or something so that this does not become a habit. We are hoping that bush visit was to indicate intentions of withdrawal. Since the ummah is divided there is no way to ask for blood money on behalf of all the innocent victims, but a full withdrawal of us troops will hopefully be in the right direction for everyone.

    Also some brother/sister asked that, if Zeidi is a Shi’ah, then should we call him our brother?
    Well I never heard whether Zeidi is Ahl us-Sunnah or Shi’ah, but if we know for sure that he is indeed Shi’ah we should not refer to him as our brother. I still do appreciate his action though, and I would even if a Mushrik did it in the same way. (I’m sure Shaykh Al-Awlaki is unaware of the possibility that this man could be a Shi’ah, however.)

    To Nabil and Mudsir:

    As-Salamu’alaikum. First off, I want to extend my sincerest apologies if my tone offended either of you in ANY way. WALLAHI I am not a Sheikh, and I am a human like yourselves full of mistakes. Like yourselves, I would like to see our Muslim Ummah victorious and see the enemies of Islam defeated. As a point of clarification, none of us believes that throwing shoes will bring victory to the Ummah. WALLAHI, his death wouldn’t either. Not at all. The point that Sheikh Anwar was trying to make is that a common person (even if he is shi’ah), understood the reality of this man, and treated him in a manner befitting such a person within his capacity. The Sheikh wanted to contrast this (and my point for providing the links to King Abdullah parading around with GWB hand in hand) is to show the so called “leaders” of our Ummah treat the Pharaoh of our time with the utmost respect, knowing full well how this man is treating the Muslims today. The issue is this, IF WE DO NOT RECOGNIZE, AND CONCEDE THAT YES, THESE LEADERS OF OURS ARE DOING SOMETHING SERIOUSLY WRONG, AND SHOWS A MAJOR PROBLEM WITH THEIR ISLAM ACCORDING TO THE QUR-AN, SUNNAH, AND THE INTERPRETATIONS OF THE SCHOLARS, THEN WE CANNOT ADDRESS THIS, NOR FIX THIS, CONSIDERING WE REFUSE TO EVEN ACKNOWLEDGE THAT THIS IS A PROBLEM IN THE FIRST PLACE. IF WE CANNOT ADMIT THAT A PROBLEM EXISTS, THEN HOW CAN WE IMPROVE OUR SITUATION? WHAT EXACTLY ARE WE TRYING TO FIX IF THERE IS NO PROBLEM? BTW, I AM NOT TELLING ANYONE TO BECOME A VIGILANTE TO TAKE MATTERS IN THEIR OWN HANDS AND DO VIOLENCE. YES KNOWLEDGE IS REQUIRED, AS IT ALWAYS WAS. HOWEVER, WE SHOULD NOT, AS THE SAUDI SALAFI’S (AND THE TABLIGHI’S, AND THE SUFI’S) WANT, AND THAT IS TO BE PERPETUALLY LEARNING WITH NO MILESTONES FOR PROGRESSION. Let’s try to implement the Islamic institutions that we so desperately need here in the West (and perhaps in the east as well), such as proper Islamic schools for our children, a proper Baitul Maal so that the Muslims can have their Zakat collected and distributed properly, and allow us to purchase homes without riba. If the Khilafah was to be established today, would we be ready for it? In order to receive victory, we need to be DESERVING of it. Let’s work towards that InshaALLAH. May ALLAH grant us the knowledge, the wisdome, and the strength to put into practice as much of our Deen as we can. Once again, brother’s disagree and Mudsir, please forgive me for any offence to you, May ALLAH allow all of us to enter Jannah on the Day of Judgement. Ameen

  191. Ibn AdamNo Gravatar says:

    Dear Shadowloader:

    As-Salamu’alaikum. That is an EXCELLENT question. First and foremost, remember that as people of Ahlus-Sunnah, we do not blindly follow anyone, nor follow anyone absolutely EXCEPT the Prophet SAW. From the students of knowledge that I have spoken to in the west (who have studied under some of the ‘Ulama kabair in Saudia) the correct opinion regarding Sheikh Ibn Bazz’s fatwa about allowing the US entry into Saudia to attack Iraq during the first gulf war is that he was wrong, and that because he was blind, he was given falsified information to get him to issue a fatwa that Fahd wanted. Of course, if you are a Saudi Salafi, you will defend this fatwa (as the head of one such website did when he came to Toronto and clearly said that bringing the US for help is no different then one of us calling 911), and say that Sheikh Ibn Bazz was 100% correct, he was NEVER lied to, Fahd is a great man, he has a Qur-an printing complex named after him (so that definitely means he is a great Muslim, and defender of Islam) and that bringing the Mujahideen to defend the land of the Haramain would have been foolish, wrong, crazy, blah blah blah (even though they were able to defeat the russians, Saddam Hussein all of a sudden became more powerful – don’t ask me how). Abu Hurairah narrated that the Messenger of Allah said :

    “Let him who believes in Allah and the Last Day either speak good or keep silent, and let him who believes in Allah and the Last Day be generous to his neighbour, and let him who believes in Allah and the Last Day be generous to his guest.”

    Related by Bukhari and Muslim

    The Sheikh knew that he was blind, and should have deferred this question to someone else.

    Narrated ‘Amr bin Al-’As That he heard Allah’s Apostle saying, “If a judge
    gives a verdict according to the best of his knowledge and his verdict is correct (i.e.
    agrees with Allah and His Apostle’s verdict) he will receive a double reward, and if he
    gives a verdict according to the best of his knowledge and his verdict is wrong, (i.e.
    against that of Allah and His Apostle) even then he will get a reward.” Bukhari Volume 9, Book 92, Number 450, and Sahîh Muslim (1716).
    Having said that, we should also consider the fatwa of Sheikh Albaani on this very issue. If I understand this fatwa correctly, Sheikh Albaani said that Kuwait was wrong for seeking help on the basis of nationalism (which they did, they did not seek help as a Muslim country in need of help from fellow Muslims). Sheikh Albaani then said that both Iraq was wrong to threaten Saudia, and that Saudia was WRONG to bring the US to help fight Iraq. He also added a very interesting point to this (WHICH THE SAUDI SALAFI’S EITHER DON’T KNOW ABOUT, OR THEY DON’T WANT YOU TO KNOW ABOUT), and that point is this:

    WHILE IRAQ IS NOT BEING RULED ISLAMICALLY, HAD THE US GONE ON THEIR OWN TO ATTACK IRAQ, THEN IT IS THE DUTY OF THE MUSLIMS TO UNITE WITH IRAQ AGAINST THE US!!! (THIS FATWA MIND YOU, WAS MADE FOR THE FIRST GULF WAR, HOWEVER THIS LAST CIRCUMSTANCE OCCURRED JUST NOW, WHICH MOST EVERYONE SAW AND DID NOTHING EXCEPT WATCH). If someone has the tape where the noble Sheikh issued his full fatwa about the gulf war, or has a transcript of this fatwa, or if I am incorrect in any way relating this information, please provide that information here please. I hope this helps, and ALLAH knows best. May ALLAH have Mercy on both Sheikh Albaani and Sheikh Ibn Bazz and give them entry to Firdaus on the Day of Judgement InshaALLAH. Ameen.

    Saudi Salafism a Stronger Force in Islamist Militancy than Recanting Clerics

    By Michael Scheuer

    In the past month, the media have reported an attack on India’s embassy in Kabul, killing 41; an attack on the Red Mosque in Islamabad, killing 10; an attack on the U.S. consulate in Istanbul, killing six; a raid by the Taliban and its allies on a U.S. firebase in Afghanistan’s Konar Province that killed nine American soldiers and a July 15 suicide bombing in Iraq that killed 28 Iraqi military recruits. While these events seem grim, fear not. The Western media continue to argue that victory is close over al-Qaeda and its allies. “Cheer up. We’re Winning this War on Terrorism,” says the London Times; “Turning Their Backs on Terror,” claims Der Spiegel; “Al-Qaeda’s Vietnam,” trumpets the New York Post (The Times, June 27; Der Spiegel, July 14; New York Post, June 17). How does one reconcile the former events with the latter analysis? And how pertinent is either to assessing the strength of Islamist extremism?

    The war-against-Islamists-is-won media boom began in April, with articles by Western journalists claiming al-Qaeda is being destroyed by the recantations of former Islamist theoreticians (New Republic, June 11; New Yorker, May 26). The recantations, it was argued, are turning Muslims from al-Qaeda and its allies and persuading them to accept U.S. foreign policy in the Muslim world and life under repressive police-state regimes. That the recanters’ words drew attention from Islamists is clear, but the argument that the recantations—delivered from Egypt’s prisons and the Saudi police state—spelled doom for Islamism seems overdrawn. A prominent Salafist cleric, Shaykh Husayn Bin Mahmud, put the point nicely. The recanting “is just acting forced by the prison guards,” Bin-Mahmud wrote. “Tell [the recanter] that we would listen to him when he tells us to retract when he is standing between Usama Bin Laden and Ayman al-Zawahiri in Afghanistan, enjoying his freedom and safety and the safety of his family. How can we listen to him when we know he is in Husni [Mubarak’s] prison and knowing how Muslim prisoners in particular are treated?” (, November 25, 2007). Ayman al-Zawahiri put it more logically, asking: “Why is the jihad against the Russians in Afghanistan an individual obligation, whereas in Iraq today, it is one of the cardinal sins?” (Al-Sahab Media Production Organization, December 16, 2007).

    The recantations making a splash in the Western media are part of a bigger project conducted by several Arab states—led by Saudi Arabia—to make the United States and its allies believe Islamism’s strength is ebbing. Their campaign is made easier, of course, because the West desperately wants to believe such claims. The Arab regimes, in fact, built a cottage industry of recanting; earlier in this decade, Riyadh ran television shows featuring recanting jihadi clerics that earned the mocking name of “the series of repentance” (, November 25, 2007). Today, the Libyan regime is about to join the recanting caravan. Saudi-controlled media in Europe, for example, are publishing teasers about the coming renunciation of “armed violence” by the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group—long an al-Qaeda ally. Its now slickly groomed spokesman, Nu’man bin Uthman, says the group’s imprisoned leaders will soon publicly oppose violence (Al-Sharq al-Awsat, July 7).

    Beyond recanting clerics, the Saudis, the Egyptians, and the Yemenis have trumpeted “re-education programs” they are running to “rehabilitate” captured Islamist fighters, while incarcerated, right-thinking, regime-paid clerics tell the former mujahideen that “religious deviants” led them astray and are taught regime-approved interpretations of Islam. They are also prepared to reenter society with classes in trades, art and music. This program of what the West might call “tough love” is being hailed by Riyadh, Cairo, and Sana as a success, these claims meshing with the West’s faith in reforming flawed human beings by therapy [1]. There are suspicions that re-educated graduates are released on condition they go to Iraq or Afghanistan to fight infidels, which was the method the Saudi and other Arab regimes used to unload firebrands during anti-Soviet jihad.

    Finally, Riyadh has gone the extra mile to apply soothing eyewash to Western eyes by having its clerical hirelings claim—Quranically speaking—that black is white, as well as by engaging in a startling ecumenicalism: “Aggressions against Muslims and occupation of [their] land,” the kingdom’s Grand Mufti, Sheikh Abdul-Aziz Al al-Sheikh, said in July, “cannot be a justification for explosions…” Later in his statement, the Grand Mufti let slip the main point of his message, which was to protect the al-Saud family, not the West. “Obeying the Muslim ruler without sedition,” al-Sheikh said, “is a basic principle of Muslims who follow the path of the Prophet” (Reuters, July 3).

    Later, Riyadh had the senior religious bureaucrat Shaykh Saleh al-Laheedan, chairman of the Saudi Arabian Supreme Judiciary Council, attack bin Laden: “Osama is a preacher of evil,” said Shaykh al-Laheedan. “If a man performs prayers in [the] night and then disobeys the rulers of his country, how can he be a good man? No doubt, such people are sinners.” Again, this cleric’s main message was that the Sauds must be obeyed (Gulf News, July 10). The Saudis also are calling for more cooperation among world religions and are mulling the opening of a Christian church in the kingdom. This month it even sent King Abdullah—who met Pope Benedict XVI last year—to open an interfaith conference in Madrid that was organized by the Saudis’ Muslim World League (AFP, July 14).

    Just as reality is juxtaposed with over-optimism above—Islamist attacks contrasted with claims al-Qaeda and its allies are losing—the Saudi-led Arab campaign to make the West see a mirage of a fading-Islamist threat is marred by reality. In Egypt, for example, President Mubarak’s security forces continue to harass and arrest members of the Muslim Brotherhood. In Yemen, President Salih is confronting attacks from both al-Qaeda-in-Yemen and hostile Shia tribes, and it is clear the Islamist tide in Saudi Arabia is not receding. So far in 2008, Saudi security services have arrested more than 700 Islamists suspected of planning attacks on oil, security, and industrial facilities and Riyadh is forming a 30,000-man force to protect these targets. In addition, Saudi officials admit they have neither won the ideological battle with “religious deviants” nor stopped terrorist fundraising; they also say Islamist cells exist across most of the country. Adding to internal frictions are simmering animosities between Sunnis and Shias, after leading Sunni scholars in June ascribed “infidel principles” to Shia doctrine (Saudi Gazette, June 27; Al-Sharq al-Awsat, June 18; Reuters, July 2).

    Again, how can the foregoing contradictions be reconciled, and an assessment made about the strength and future viability of the Islamist threat? Perhaps the best way to get a handle on this issue is to understand that much of the above—the attacks, the recanters, the re-education camps, Riyadh’s ecumenical outreach—is a diversion from the key variable in the future vitality of Islamist militancy: The doctrine of Salafism and its continuing proliferation. Bin Laden and his allies are overwhelmingly Salafist; men and women who profess an austere, semi-martial brand of Sunni Islam based on the Quran, the Sunnah and the traditions of the “pious ancestors,” the first four generations of Islamic leaders. Salafism is Saudi Arabia’s state religion; it is taught at all levels of its school system to Saudis and others who come from abroad to study or are the children of immigrant Muslim workers and it is the faith Riyadh exports to all areas of the world via a large, well funded proselytizing program staffed by Salafi clerics educated in the kingdom. Salafism is the engine of contemporary jihad; its base is in Saudi Arabia; and no amount of jihadist recanting or damning by the “king’s clerics” will stunt Salafi jihadism as long as the doctrine is taught and continues to grow in popularity:

    “In Kuwait, followers of the Salafi current won a majority of parliamentary seats in the 17 May [2008] elections. In Jordan, the Muslim Brotherhood elected a [Salafi] conservative, Hammam Said, to be their general guide. He is the first Jordanian of Palestinian origin to lead the group since it was founded in 1946. In Egypt, [Salafi] conservatives running the Muslim Brotherhood show no intention of allowing a new generation of younger reformers to take over. In Palestine, Hamas’s hawks have been consolidating their position since the movement seized Gaza a year ago, while ‘pragmatists’ are being increasingly sidelined. Wherever you look in the Arab world, Islamist conservatism of the brand known as ‘Salafist’ is gaining ground while moderates seem to be running out of steam. Even regional television stations seem more interested in conservatives than in mainstream or opposition moderates. Also, many social institutions have fallen into the hands of the Salafis.

    “Recently, the Salafist trend has widened its appeal to the Arab public. No longer confining themselves to conventional preaching places, such as the mosque and home gatherings, conservatives are using hi-tech methods, including blogging and Facebook. I have met a few young Salafist men who haven’t the slightest interest in updating the content of their beliefs, but nonetheless are computer savvy and networking online all the time. The moment has come for their brand of Salafist discourse, they believe. And they are using the latest technology to connect with thousands of their generation” (Al-Ahram Weekly, July 10-16).

    As Salafism spreads, it is vital that the West sees that the Salafism taught in the Muslim world is not an aberrant form of Islam; it is a respected—indeed, honored—set of beliefs and is being taught accurately. A 2004 essay mounted on the Saudi dissident website Al-Hijaz makes this point; the essay merits more attention than it has received. The anonymous author writes that the Salafi mujahideen are a huge problem for the Saudi and other Arab governments because they are the true voice of that version of Islam. While the regimes may be stronger in military terms, the author argues they will ultimately be defeated by the Salafists:

    “In our opinion, the Saudi government is losing on the ideological front, although it may win temporarily on the front of confrontation by security means. The reason is that the dominant ideology feeding the current of violence is an indigenous ideology, not an intruder into the kingdom. It is an ideology that the official religious establishment espouses and that it considers a sound standard for the entire world, except when it comes to applying it to the Saudi case and to the al-Saud family. Thus the graduates of the Salafi school, who have embarked on violence have added nothing to this ideology; they simply have applied it. They have been honest in using it and faithful to their belief… It is not correct to maintain that the ideas held by the [Salafi] practitioners of violence are eccentric or [applying a] false doctrine. In fact they are the prevailing view among the Saudi Salafi religious current in the kingdom. If members of the official current use this ideology, it is called sound; if the practitioners of violence use it, it is called eccentric” (Al-Hijaz, August 15, 2004).

    The author warns that seeing Salafists as deviants is self-defeating because their violence is “authenticated … on the basis of texts, pronouncements and fatwas by senior scholars. These are clear texts subject to no ambiguity or misreading” (Al-Hijaz, August 15, 2004). The answer to whether al-Qaeda’s ideology can be defeated is not, therefore, to be found in recanting clerics and reeducated militants paraded by the Arab regimes. It will be answered by their willingness to remove Salafism from schools and missionary activities. To date, the evidence is that Salafism has over the last decades—and especially since 9/11—experienced a Saudi-sponsored expansion from the Arab heartland to rest of the Muslim world.


    1. The chief of the Saudi Senior Islamic Scholars Commission, Shaykh Abdullah al-Motlaq, recently briefed the media on the “success of the ongoing counseling program,” and asserted that “Saudi scholars are in the forefront of those carrying out [the] intensive campaign against extremists in the kingdom” (Gulf News, July 10).

    17th of Dhu al-Hijjah 1429
    December 15th 2008

    Bismillah, was-Salamu ‘alaykum wa Rahmatullah wa barakatuh,

    My dear brother, Ahmad,

    It was absolutely refreshing and reassuring to have received a letter from you, and the brothers and sisters from all over. You have no idea what a letter from the outside world means when one is here. The whole psychological makeup of prison is such that it is designed to remove your individuality, instead turning you into nothing more than an identification number. Everyone wears the same color prison uniform, eats the same food, is subject to the same regulations, etc. So to receive a message marked with your actual name on it, written specifically for you — this is a reminder that you are an actual person with an actual life and actual family and friends. So, having [so many] letters slipped under my cell door reminded me of how fortunate I am to have received support from people who mostly know nothing about me except that I am their brother in faith, and [these] letters never leave my side.

    One thing I would like to point out is in regards to how many brothers and sisters, when writing to a prisoner or any other Muslim in need, will start off the reminder with ‘you already know this,’ or ‘I can’t say much you don’t already know.’ In Surat al-Hashr, Allah says in one verse: {”O you who believe, fear Allah and let every soul look to what it has put forth for tomorrow, and fear Allah…“}. So, the same injunction was made twice in the same verse to fear Allah. Imam Ahmad pointed out that patience is mentioned in the Qur’an over ninety times. So, there are certain concepts that have to be drilled into our heads constantly for us to truly understand and internalize and apply them properly in our lives. Reflect, also, how you have been and will continue to recite Surat al-Fatiha at least seventeen times everyday for the rest of your life. Shaykh ‘Uthaymin once pointed out that the Qur’an and the reminders it contains are such that every time you read some verse, you come away with a deeper meaning than the previous time you read that same verse! Now, in an environment such as this, the concepts of patience, tawakkul, etc. take on completely new meanings. So, every reminder boosts morale and strengthens resolve, and helps you look at the situation in the right light.

    The greatest asset in here is the ability to remember Allah no matter what condition or situation I am in. When I was handcuffed and couldn’t use my hands to pray, when I was in solitary confinement and had no contact with human or book, when shackled by my hands and feet during the hour-long rides back and forth between court and prison hunched over in the dark, stuffy prison van, etc. — when all sources of material comfort have been taken away, it is then when you realize exactly how essential dhikr is to your sanity and survival. People here place so much reliance on the skills of their lawyers, the mercy of the judge, etc., but looking around at them all, I laugh at how easy it is for me to call upon the One who controls every atom in the universe compared with how hard it is for an inmate to get what he wants from those on the outside that he places so much reliance on, who are not always placing him on their list of priorities. Ibn al-Qayyim’s ‘al-Wabil as-Sayyib‘ contains great parables and expositions on the virtues of dhikr. But the reason I mention how helpul the act of dhikr has been here is to encourage you all on the outside to realize its true value and take proper advantage of it now, and not just if you happen to go to prison, because if you remember Allah in times of ease, He will help you in times of hardship, guaranteed! It’s the easiest act of worship!

    I spend my time reading whatever I can get my hands on. Every Tuesday, the library cart is supposed to get some books to my unit, but they are extremely inefficient here when it comes to such services, and the cart has only been around once in the past few months. I picked up and completed a 700-page biography of J. Robert Oppenheimer (the so-called “father of the atomic bomb”) called ‘American Prometheus.’ It was quite a revealing story of how the man who essentially handed America the nuclear bombs by which she sought to bring the Soviet Union to its knees was blacklisted by the FBI and excommunicated the minute he voiced his opposition to the thirst of zealots in the administration to build even deadlier weapons. I also just completed a history of the Colombian cocaine trade that had its peak in the ’80s, and last night completed a book about the topic of celibacy as debated in the Vatican. There are also old issues of National Geographic Magazine floating around between inmates here, so I try to read those whenever one comes my way. I think they are popular around here because they contain more pictures than words . I had a copy of Yusuf Ali’s translation of the Qur’an for a while, but I had lent it to an inmate interested in Islam who was released on bail before he could return it to me. So, I’ve been relying on the Qur’an I have memorized when it comes to recitation.

    Despite the fact that this is a maximum security facility and the restrictions are at times cumbersome, I really do not have much I can complain about. I have a place to sleep, three meals a day, and I can pray whenever I want in peace. I can think of millions of people around the world who cannot claim the same luxuries. On top of that, one sometimes needs a place like this to achieve clarity of mind. So, as the cliché goes, this has been a blessing in disguise in that I’ve been able to benefit from various aspects of incarceration that would ordinarily seem undesirable. I can only think of the countless imprisoned Muslims in the jails of tyrants around the globe and hope that if it is not Allah’s Decree to free them in the near future, that they taste the sweetness that Allah has placed them in prison to taste… May Allah free our sisters sooner than all…

    I would like to end this letter by reminding all who read it to realize what you have been blessed with before it is taken from you: the warm hug of a loved one, the company of righteous people, the ability to see the sun and moon, a breath of fresh air, praying in a mosque, hearing the Qur’an recited, reading a good book of your choosing, taking a shower with clean water whenever you feel like, even something as simple as being able to open a door and walk out of a room! If there is one lesson that everybody can learn in here – be they Muslim or kafir – that is to take the initiative to appreciate the value of the luxuries you are blessed with before they are taken from under your nose. We hear this in every khutbah but one unfortunately cannot truly appreciate this advice until all these delights of life are out of reach, in actuality. (I highly suggest Cummings’ ‘The Enormous Room‘ in this regard, if you can find a copy, where he describes, in candid detail, life in a French prison camp stripped of all the material possessions that were once within easy grasp.) Indeed, prison only makes the Muslim stronger…

    Assalaamualaykum Everyone,

    Congratulations on the Journalist for taking some action physically. May Allah reward him. This serves as an example for all of us. How many times have the likes of Bush or Blair or any of their advisors paraded in our home towns, visited local schools and centres, and how many times have they been met by this lesser form of physical activism? The answer is none, because we’re all appeasing the non-believers and worried about our citizenship and what other people will think more than anything else, we the majority, often burrow in our corners too scared to even consider the consequences and actively partake in the promotion of the the coming of these satans (either by word of mouth or by other extremes). Just rellect on the following: How much courage do you think this personn would have had to muster to stand up in a gathering filled with colleagues and launch an zttack on a visiting president, despite Secret service president and the world’s media watching his every move? Would we ever follow in his footsteps and welcome our leaders with so much disgust? There is a lot we can learn from this little occurence and moving on, we need to focus on securing his release, this will show them our solidaity behind his action, may be we should send our own shoes to the whitehouse or neighbouring agencies to send a stark message that we’re behind this action and inshallah the momentum in the upsurge of shoes release may go further than the release of this brother.

    Guess what people good news from Somlia.
    Cheak this out from Al Jazeera!
    Somali fighters warn Western powers
    An armed group battling Ethiopian forces in Somalia has told Al Jazeera it will take its fight beyond the country once it defeats its rivals.

    “We are fighting to lift the burden of oppression and colonialism from our country … We are defending ourselves against enemies who attacked us,” Abu Mansoor, the leader of the al-Shabab’s movement, said.

    “Once we are successful with that we will fight on and finish oppression elsewhere on earth,” he said.

    Al-Shabab, meaning youth, split last year from the Islamic Courts Union which controlled much of Somalia, including the capital Mogadishu, until it was pushed out by government and Ethiopian troops in 2006.

    It has since retaken large areas of central and southern Somalia and is putting increased pressure of the transitional government, which exercises little control from its base in the town of Baidoa.

    ‘Islamic rule’

    In Marka, just 90km from the capital Mogadishu, Ibrahim Almaqdis, one of the fighters told Al Jazeera: “We wish to tell Bush and our opponents our real intentions.

    “We will establish Islamic rule from Alaska and Chile to South Africa, Japan, Russia, the Solomon Islands and all the way to Iceland, be warned, we are coming.”

    Abu Mansoor said that al-Shabab’s ranks had been bolstered by foreign fighters and urged others to join, saying that a core principle of the group was that all Muslims are citizens of Somalia.

    “Many have already died fighting our cause and many others are here with us,” he said.

    “We shall welcome any Muslim from any part of the world who wants to join us. We will allow him to wed our daughters and share our farms.”

    The group was created in 2001 by four Somali men who had trained in Afghanistan and is listed as a “terrorist organisation” by the United States.

    Relative peace

    The Islamic Courts Union brought relative peace to the Horn of Africa nation during its six months in control, enforcing strict laws and renewing hopes that the Somalia would become stable enough to allow aid agencies the freedom to operate.

    However, their defeat by the Ethiopian and government forces has brought renewed violence as various anti-government forces have mounted near-daily attacks.

    In Marka, Al Jazeera found people welcoming al-Shabab and dressing their children like the fighters who have been the only people to bring some semblance of peace to Somalia in recent years.

    More than one million people have been displaced by the fighting in Somalia, one third of the population rely on emergency food aid and the chaos has helped fuel kidnappings and piracy off the coast.

    Please be advised that there is ‘Shia and Sunni’. The term ‘Sunni’ is a legal term according to the consensus of the Muslim scholars. As for the term ‘Shia’ – it is how they call themselves. If you study their books, you will find plenty of evidence to suggest that their belif system is fundamentally different from Islam.

    “Freedom from (all) obligations (is declared) from Allah and His Messenger to those of the Mushrikoon (polytheists, pagans, idolaters, disbelievers in the Oneness of Allah), with whom you made a treaty.
    So travel freely (O Mushrikoon) for four months (as you will) throughout the land, but know that you cannot escape (from the Punishment of) Allah, and Allah will disgrace the disbelievers.
    And a declaration from Allah and His Messenger to mankind on the greatest day (the 10th of Dhul-Hijjah – the 12th month of Islamic calendar) that Allah is free from (all) obligations to the Mushrikoon and so is His Messenger. So if you (Mushrikoon) repent, it is better for you, but if you turn away, then know that you cannot escape (from the Punishment of) Allah. And give tidings (O Muhammad SAW) of a painful torment to those who disbelieve.
    Except those of the Mushrikoon with whom you have a treaty, and who have not subsequently failed you in aught, nor have supported anyone against you. So fulfill their treaty to them to the end of their term. Surely Allah loves Al- Mattaqun (the pious )
    Then when the Sacred Months (the Ist, 7th, 11th, and 12th months of the Islamic calendar) have passed, then kill the Mushrikoon wherever you find them, and capture them and besiege them, and prepare for them each and every ambush. But if they repent and perform As-Salat (Iqamat-as-Salat), and give Zakat, then leave their way free. Verily, Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.
    And if anyone of the Mushrikoon (polytheists, idolaters, pagans, disbelievers in the Oneness of Allah) seeks your protection then grant him protection, so that he may hear the Word of Allah (the Qur’an), and then escort him to where he can be secure, that is because they are men who know not.
    How can there be a covenant with Allah and with His Messenger for the Mushrikoon (polytheists, idolaters, pagans, disbelievers in the Oneness of Allah) except those with whom you made a covenant near Al-Masjid-al-Haram (at Makkah)? So long, as they are true to you, stand you true to them. Verily, Allah loves Al-Muttaqun (the pious).
    How (can there be such a covenant with them) that when you are overpowered by them, they regard not the ties, either of kinship or of covenant with you? With (good words from) their mouths they please you, but their hearts are averse to you, and most of them are Fasiqun (rebellious, disobedient to Allah).
    They have purchased with the Ayat (proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.) of Allah a little gain, and they hindered men from His Way; evil indeed is that which they used to do.
    With regard to a believer, they respect not the ties, either of kinship or of covenant! It is they who are the transgressors.
    But if they repent, perform As-Salat (Iqamat-as-Salat) and give Zakat, then they are your brethren in religion. (In this way) We explain the Ayat (proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.) in detail for a people who know.
    But if they violate their oaths after their covenant, and attack your religion with disapproval and criticism then fight (you) the leaders of disbelief (chiefs of Quraish – pagans of Makkah) – for surely their oaths are nothing to them – so that they may stop (evil actions).
    Will you not fight a people who have violated their oaths (pagans of Makkah) and intended to expel the Messenger, while they did attack you first? Do you fear them? Allah has more right that you should fear Him, if you are believers.
    Fight against them so that Allah will punish them by your hands and disgrace them and give you victory over them and heal the breasts of a believing people,
    And remove the anger of their (believers’) hearts. Allah accepts the repentance of whom He wills. Allah is All-Knowing, All-Wise.”
    [Surah At-Tawbah, Ayat 1 – 15]

    To you the Kafir, the Zionist, the Neocon, the Satan Worshipper, the Sun Worshipper, to you the Freemason Crusader, Blackwater, Decan, Mossad, Firoun Mi5, CIA, NATO and the illuminati, to you Dajjal al-Kathab, and your blinded Mujimoon (criminals) in Iraq, Afghanistan, Palestine, Kashmir, Pakistan and Somalia:
    The Jihadfeesabililah that is declared and fought today by the Mujahideen will either see you concede defeat or return back to the Knower of the Unseen, Allah Azza Wa Jall. It is going to be either your death or your destruction Insh’Allah.
    Shaheedah, May Allah Protect you and raise your rank, Insh’Allah the true believing men and women know that we are living in an exciting period of time, the “Gold Rush”, and surly we are taking advantage of this. May Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala Increase your Imaan, Make your feet firm on the Path of Jihadfeesabililah and Pour upon us Sabr. May Allah allow us to be of the Shuhadaa and to be of those who bring Victory to Islam. Ameen.

    Muntazer al-Zaidi is a Shia Muslim.
    There are Sunni muslims,Shia muslims,Salafi muslims,Sufi muslims,Khawarij muslims…..

    According to Jundub, may Allah be pleased with him, the Messenger of Allah a mentioned that a man said, “By Allah, Allah will not forgive so-and-so,” and that Allah Ta`ala said, “Who is swearing by Me that I will not forgive so-and-so? I surely have forgiven so-and-so and nullified your deed” [Muslim].

    RasoolAllah sallallahu `alaihi wa sallam said, “Al-Kibr is rejecting the truth and despising the people.” [Muslim, Tirmidhi, and Abu Dawud]

    Regarding Shia Aqeedah[i am not a Shia].A lot of texteual work had been done since centuries by many scholars but many are guilty of exageration,manupulation & misunderstanding.To understand their aqeedah visit their sites not the sites of Sunnis or salafi because no one more more rightful to speak on the accused except the one who is accused.They do not believe a lot of their own text which Sunnis,Salafis,Sufis pick up against them.Kindly find out truth from the actual source.

    Volume 8, Book 73, Number 71:
    Narrated Abu Dhar:
    That he heard the Prophet saying, “If somebody accuses another of Fusuq (by calling him ‘Fasiq’ i.e. a wicked person) or accuses him of Kufr, such an accusation will revert to him (i.e. the accuser) if his companion (the accused) is innocent.” ( Sahih Bukhari)

    Sahih Muslim Hadith 6248 Narrated byJabir ibn Abdullah
    Allah’s Apostle (peace be upon him) said: Be on your guard against committing oppression, for oppression is a darkness on the Day of Resurrection, and be on your guard against petty-mindedness for petty-mindedness destroyed those who were before you, as it incited them to shed blood and make lawful what was unlawful for them.

    Sahih Muslim Hadith 6251 Narrated byAbuHurayrah
    Allah’s Apostle (peace be upon him) said: Do you know who is poor? They (the Companions of the Prophet) said: A poor man amongst us is one who has neither dirham with him nor wealth. He (the Prophet) said: The poor of my Ummah would be he who would come on the Day of Resurrection with prayers and fasts and Zakat but (he would find himself bankrupt on that day as he would have exhausted his funds of virtues) since he hurled abuses upon others, brought calumny against others and unlawfully consumed the wealth of others and shed the blood of others and beat others, and his virtues would be credited to the account of one (who suffered at his hand). And if his good deeds fall short to clear the account, then his sins would be entered in (his account) and he would be thrown in the Hell-Fire.

    Assalamu alaikum,
    Closing down the blog? Why? So that the source of valuable knowledge for the Muslim youth is cut off? So that we can go back to the pre-written khutbahs that are prepared by the governments who work with the kaafirs and afraid of them that they might label us “terrorists”?
    Subhanallah, instead of saying there should be more frequent posts on this blog that can benefit us all, you say we should close it down?
    It’s like saying “don’t write any books” to the scholars of Islam in previous generations; because blogs, emails, discussion forums and the internet in general is the source of knowledge to the current Muslim youth today. Therefore, it would be a grave mistake and a grave loss for all of us if this blog was to close down. (I am sure some parties are working 24/7 to close it down).
    May Allah SWT continue to bless Imam Awlaki with beneficial knowledge. May Allah secure him and his family, and May Allah humiliate those who are working against him. Ameen.

    Aslm Aleikhum Dear Br & Sis,
    I was sitting in a gathering of more than 81 Muslims – watching News Channel, then we saw Jog Bush ducking the shoes, I heard someone saying “Takhbeer” and we all responded “Allah Akbar” – the heavy voices could be heard within the neighbours… this was great moment.
    I hope the Kufar also watched this including(
    My beloved Br & Sis, we should not worry about or bother about thick skinned Rand Muslims and their Kufar Masters,To remind you what Brother Anwar have quoted: Allah says about the disbelievers: “They are like cattle, nay, they are even more misguided”
    Ignore their ignorant comments except for few they sincerly desire to learn, Insha Allah we must strive and keep negotiating hard to implement the “Haq” and support and promote those who are in the line of duty (from those seeking benefits of Ribat to Shahadah)and those holding the rope by reasoning based on Al Wala Wal Bara-
    for you and me time is running out my dear: we do not have guarantee of time in life.
    I conclude my comments by a last quote from the Hadith of which Brother Anwar has just said:
    Rasulullah says about the believer: “Tearing down al Kaaba stone by stone is less than shedding the blood of a Muslim”

  232. ATNo Gravatar says:

    Jameel,Thanks for wikipedia link :
    For those asking Br Anwar if they can join him in Yemen,I advice if Br Anwar is there or not, Hijra for the sake of Allah is compasary and now that we know for sure Br Anwar is there, then why are we waiting for questions and answers –
    “who wants to die in the land of Kufr”??? and we are lying to ourselves if we have guarantee that our children will be saved from the great fitnah and culture of Kufar – We must make Hijra for the sake of Allah,May Allah accept our intension.
    Asalam Aleikhum

    Mashallah very good post. As I was reading blogs today I came upon this very short but apologetic post that made me feel so sad that there are Muslims out there who feel this way:

    “I can’t say I approve of the Iraqi journalist’s methods. President Bush is a sitting head of state, alhamdulillah on his way out, but I believe, no matter our differences, he should at least be afforded a modicum of respect.”

    I honsetly don’t know why anyone should respect this man… and why? because he is a president? Who cares?

    Assalamo aleikum,
    I don’t know if somebody have responded to the question about where to get theese shoes or the ‘Bush Shoes, modell 271′ as they are called now but I read in a newspaper that the company wich produces theese shoes are called ‘Baydan Shoes’ and is located in Istanbul. Since december 14 the company got over 370 000 orders from around the world! All praise is to Allah.

    Asalamu alaykum brothers and sisters,
    Here is the link to a very interesting article called “Rand: Hijacking Islam”


    It explains how the Rand Corporation, the US Government, and the Zionists are using the hypocrites, puppet ‘Muslim’ governments, puppet scholars (including ‘Salafis’), and the Sufi’s to concoct a deviant ‘Moderate’ Islam in order to infect the Muslim youth with it so that they can control the Muslim countries and our natural resources. It then goes on to advise the Muslims what must be done to counter these evil plans. It has even been translated to Arabic. I recommend everyone reads and saves it before the link is disabled.

    Assalamalicum Brothers and Sisters,

    Help the people of Gaza, they need food, water, shelter, medicine and last but not least your prayers. Israel terror attack killed innocent children, women, old and young, the world saw this for more than 23 days without any concern that who is suffering and why? Hamas do not have weapons to protect its own people and no one supplies. Israel have weapons of mass destruction and Americans are supporting them, whatsoever they like. World powers like America, Russia, France, Germany, China, United Kingdom etc kept quiet, are they really powerful nation? Where are the Human right? and the Human right organizations? Do they really exist. The Christians and Jews are partner in terrorizing Muslims in our land. They killed innocents as we seen the history pages from Afghanistan to Iraq to Gaza and God knows which is their next. Americans lost their values they are shameless people on the face of earth. Americans and NATO Military tortured and killed Muslims in their detention. Why they done inhuman act to human at Bagram, Abu Ghraib, Guantanamo bay and more secret detention centers.

    Wake up! They are against peace and peaceful people.

    God has given a chance to us, help the people in need. You can donate to Gaza people by visiting

    Please do forward this message to all who love Allah and his Prophet Muhammad [peace be upon him]
