GAZA: Advice to the Muslim Ummah – Sheikh Saalih Al-Fawzaan

 Shaykh Saalih Ibn Fawzaan Al-Fawzaan (Hafidahullah) stated:

Smoke and fire from an Israeli bomb rises into the air ove Gaza City“The actions, disbelief and evil of the Yahood (Jews) is well known, even (with regards) to (their relationship) with their Prophets. They killed their Prophets and (also) is that which occurred with Kaleemullaah – Moosaa (the Prophet Moses upon him be the salutations), such as what Allah has related in the Qur`aan (regarding) the story of Moosaa and Haaroon (‘alayhimas-salaam).

The character, disbelief, misguidance and evil of the Yahood is well known – even towards their Prophets – but what is obligatory upon us (Muslims) is that we ponder and rectify our deviated affairs and repent to Allah because the Yahood have not gained the upper hand over us except due to our sins. Why is it that we do not hear anyone addressing and admonishing the Muslims whilst saying to them: ‘What has happened to you is (nothing else), but as a result of your turning away from the religion of Allah and negligence in the affairs of the Deen. So repent to Allah in order that Allah may aid you and avert the plot of the plotters from you.’

We do not hear except insult, abuse, and supplication against the Yahood, but this should be substituted with supplicating to Allah to rectify the Muslims and to make them steadfast. And to mention to the Muslims that they should repent and return to Allah, and rectify their Deen for the sake of Allah. This is the first obligation.

As for supplication against an oppressive tyrant, be it the Yahood or other than them, then there is nothing wrong with this. It is legislated to supplicate against the one who oppresses you with the sharee’ah supplications, the supplications found in the Qur’aan and the Sunnah. But before supplicating against them, you should supplicate to Allah to rectify the Muslims and to make the Muslims steadfast upon their Religion and return them to the truth. (And) advise, address and admonish (them) with regards to (obedience to) Allah. This is what is obligatory.

EXCLUSIVE: Support and Pray for Muslims in Gaza

As-salam ‘alaykum wa rehmatullaah dear muslim brothers and sisters,

May Allaah reward each and every person who wrote whatever he/she could against the Tyrant Israel and its supporters. May Allaah bless every person who informed fellow Muslims about the condition of Muslims in Gaza.

Our Muslim brothers in Gaza are being tortured and killed by the enemies of Allah. They are undergoing all sorts of torture and oppression. It is our duty to support them by all possible means including money, power, and Prayers to Allah for them. In this way, we will be acting upon the Saying of Allah,

The believers are nothing else than brothers (in Islamic religion). (Qur’aan 49:10)

You are also following the saying of Allah (Glorified be He):

Help you one another in Al-Birr and At-Taqwa (virtue, righteousness and piety); but do not help one another in sin and transgression. And fear Allah. Verily, Allah is Severe in punishment. (Qur’aan 5:2)

The Prophet (may Allah’s Peace and Blessings be upon him) also says:

A believer to another believer is like a wall of bricks supporting each other. [ Illustrating this, the Prophet (Peace be upon him) then interlaced his fingers together.]  (Al-Bukhari no. 2446; Muslim no. 2585)

Also he (peace be upon him) said:

The similitude of believers in regard to mutual love, affection, and empathy is that of one body; when any limb of it aches, the whole body aches, because of sleeplessness and fever. (Al-Bukhari no. 6011; Muslim no. 2586).

Also it is authentically reported that the Prophet (Peace be upon him) enjoined the believers to stand up for the oppressed by his Saying:

A Muslim is the brother of a fellow-Muslim. He should neither commit oppression upon him nor give him up to an enemy. (Al-Bukhari no. 2442; Muslim no. 2580)

Since Allah makes it obligatory upon all Muslims to support their Muslim brothers against the enemies of Allah, our Muslim brothers in Gaza are struggling against the Zionists and others of the enemies of Allah. Therefore, it is obligatory upon Muslims to support them as much as they can.

Allah is One whom we implore to guide all Muslim rulers and individuals to do everything to stop these atrocities of tyrant Zionists, to make His religion triumphant through them, to discourage His enemies, to help Muslims support their oppressed brothers everywhere.

May Allah help our brothers in Gaza and in other countries, do whatever pleases Him. May He grant them sound understanding of Islam, unite them in doing good, make those who lead them the best among them, set their leaders right and decree their triumph over His enemies!

Allah is truly Capable of doing so. Team

EXCLUSIVE: The situation of the Muslims in Palestine

I was wondering what you believe the fight taking place in the Holy Land is all about and what the end result might be.

Praise be to Allaah.  

Undoubtedly what is happening to the Muslims in the Holy Land of hardship, torture, expulsion, killing and harm is a matter which causes sorrow to every Muslim, and indeed to every non-Muslim who is reasonable, fair-minded and compassionate, when they see the blatant persecution inflicted upon innocent people, with the intention of driving them out of their homes so that the enemy can take their place, which is an enemy that possesses the most advanced weapons, with which they attack unarmed people who are deprived of the means of defending themselves.

This Muslim people has endured for more than fifty years, facing unending Zionist arrogance and aggression, which pays no heed to human dignity or any covenant or treaty, or any law, except that to which their own whims and desires make them inclined and in which their evil rabbis and warlords encourage them.

The outcome of that is well known to Muslims as well as Jews, which is that the consequences will be in favour of the pious and the party of God will be the victors. The wrongdoer will never enjoy security, stability and prosperity, rather he will be faced with fear, anxiety, grief and shame, until the day comes when the Muslims come back to their religion and are governed by the sharee’ah of their Lord, then they will meet the Jews in battle, where the two sides will face one another, and victory will go to the people of faith.

Al-Bukhaari (2926) and Muslim (2922) narrated from Abu Hurayrah (radiyAllaahu ‘anhu) that the Messenger of Allaah SallAllaahu ‘Alayhi Wa Sallam (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “The Hour will not begin until the Muslims fight the Jews and kill them, until a Jew will be hiding behind a rock or a tree, and the rock or tree will say, ‘O Muslim, O slave of Allaah, here is a Jew behind me, come and kill him!’ except for the box-thorn (al-gharqad), for it is one of the trees of the Jews.” 

We ask Allaah to hasten the Muslims’ return to their religion and to grant them the means of victory. May He grant us the joy of seeing His religion prevail and His enemies humiliated, and may He raise the status of those who are persecuted, tortured or killed for His sake. 

And Allaah knows best.
