Warm Call to the Muslims
“Do not think that Allah does not heed the deeds of the oppressors. He only gives them respite against a Day when the eyes will fixedly stare in horror” (TMQ)
Dear Muslims..Our Ummah has been described as the best nation sent to mankind; hence it is forbidden for her to be extinct and it is a crime for her to suffer obliteration. She is the Ummah who spread guidance in the world and established justice among people. She has sought the truth in ruling her subjects and she has spread mercy among all people and her guardianship engulfed everyone. She has spread serenity and generated stability. The Ummah has provided all those who responded to her call with the bliss of this life. She is indeed the Ummah who has lived in order to salvage people from polytheism and Kufr. Millions of her sons gained martyrdom for the sake of holding Allah’s Word supreme. Her main work in this life has been the carrying of the Islamic Da'wah to the world and her high ideal has been the gaining of Allah’s pleasure. This is the Ummah who is noble in her actions and deep-rooted in her pedigree, who used to shoulder all the burdens of humanity to bring it out of the darkness into the light. Humanity is still missing this Ummah in order to salvage her once again from the coveting of material gain and the perturbation of materialism and to guide her safely towards the tranquillity of piety and the serenity of Iman. This Ummah is today on the brink of effacement and Kufr, with all its forces, is hastening towards dealing her the “coup de grâce”. The Kuffar had evoked doubts amongst the Ummah over the thoughts and rules of her Deen at a time when the sun of the Kuffar’s industries and inventions shone with the glow of intellectual elevation and the warmth of material advancement; hence, they showed her the thoughts of Kufr by displaying their inventions and the rules of aberration by revealing the industrial achievements. Hence, the Ummah was seduced and the Kuffar succeeded in raising her doubts about the thoughts and rules of Islam until they placed her at the crossroad. Once they destroyed the Islamic State and eradicated the Islamic Khilafah from existence they dragged this Ummah, while she was in a state of confusion and shock, towards the path of obliteration in order to remove the traces of her existence. Now that 79 years have lapsed since the Kuffar led the Ummah along this path, they have now reached the end of the road and placed her on the verge of the precipice; thus she became on the brink of being effaced. So will you let her perish like other nations perished before her? Then Allah will send those who will carry His Message, convey His Da'wah and support His Deen, thus He will replace you with others. Allah (swt) says: “If ye turn back (from the Path), He will substitute in your stead another people; then they would not be like you!” (TMQ) He (swt) also says: “Unless ye go forth, He will punish you with a grievous penalty, and put others in your place.” (TMQ) Or will you sacrifice your souls in order to save her once again so that she may resume carrying her message to the world to save it from what it is experiencing in terms Kufr and aberration, corruption and misery and to bring it out from the darkness to the light?.
Dear Muslims from among the people of power and salvation..
You will not be able to achieve the salvation of your Ummah unless you return to Allah, strengthen your link with Him, seek help from Him, rely on Him the way you should and make the gaining of His pleasure your highest ideal in this life. The salvation of your Ummah is but for the sake of spreading the Deen of Allah, holding the Word of Allah supreme, enabling Allah’s creatures to enjoy His mercy and bring happiness to the servants of Allah. This entails smashing the skull of Kufr, cutting off the head of oppression and destroying atheism and aberration. This can only be brought about through bitter struggle, while armed with the enlightened thought, and through a sincere Jihad for the sake of holding Allah’s Word supreme; also, through offering the bodies and souls for the sake of Allah. Hence, you have no power but that bestowed on you by Allah and no support but that of Allah, for Allah alone is the Helper, and He is the best Ally and the best Helper. He ta’ala says, “Think not that Allah would fail His messengers in His promise; for Allah is exalted in power, the Lord of retribution.” (TMQ)
You have been attached to the earth for a long time, so raise your eyes to the heavens; your engrossment in worldly affairs has increased, so turn your attention to the bliss of the Hereafter. It is high time you yearned for Jannah, smelt its scent and aspired to its bliss. So let your yearning for Jannah be the vessel that takes you to the realms of struggle and to the battlefields and answer the call of Allah (swt) who says: “Be quick in the race for forgiveness from your Lord, and for a Garden whose width is that (of the whole) of the heavens and of the earth, prepared for the righteous.” (TMQ)
Also, respond to the call of the Messenger of Allah (saw) who said: “Arise to a heaven whose breadth is that of the heavens and the earth.” The Ansar who concluded the second pledge of Al-Aqabah had said: “We will take the Messenger of Allah (saw) with the tribulation of losing our properties and the killing of our dignitaries”. They also said to the Messenger of Allah (saw): “What is in it for us O Messenger of Allah if we fulfilled this?” Upon this the Messenger of Allah (saw) said to them in total confidence: “Jannah”. Indeed Jannah, dear Muslims, is the price for sacrificing oneself for the sake of Allah in order to spread Islam and holding the Word of Allah supreme. Allah (swt) says: “Indeed Allah has purchased from the believers their lives and their properties; for theirs (in return) is the garden (of Paradise): they fight in His cause, and slay and are slain.” (TMQ) Indeed dear Muslims, Jannah is the deal they concluded with Allah; they fight for His sake, they kill and get killed. Is it not high time you yearned for this Jannah and you concluded with Allah the deal that never loses, thus you offer your lives for the sake of gaining His pleasure and you respond to Him when he calls you to that which gives you life. Allah (swt) says: “O you who believe! give your response to Allah and His Messenger, when He calls you to that which will give you life.” (TMQ). And He says, “Unless you do this (protect each other), there would be Fitnah on earth and great mischief” (TMQ).
Your main calamity is that the light of the Islamic Aqeedah has been extinguished in your hearts and its impact on your actions has disappeared. The warmth of this Aqeedah is missing in your conduct and it became dead within your souls. So alight it with the rules of the Qur’an and revive it with the remembrance of Allah; let it turn you into different creatures, just like the first Muslims from among the Sahaba and those who succeeded them and their successors. Alight this Aqeedah via the confidence in the thoughts and rules of Islam and by the work to restore the authority of Islam and to hoist the banner of the Qur’an. Alight the Islamic Aqeedah by carrying the Islamic Da'wah to all people so that you may bring them out of the darkness of Kufr and aberration to the light of Islam, from the inferno of anxiety and misery to the grace of tranquillity and the bliss of happiness. Revive this Aqeedah with the fear of Allah and obedience to Him, with the fear of His punishment and the yearning for His Jannah. Revive it by strengthening your link with Allah (swt) and by remembering Him in every action and in every conduct; revive it by getting closer to Him not just through prayers, fasting, Zakat and Du’a, but also by uttering the truth wherever it may be and by struggling against falsehood wherever it may be, by performing Jihad against the Kuffar and the hypocrites every time and everywhere.
It has been made plain to you that your ailment lies in the undermining of the confidence in the thoughts and rules of Islam and it has become clear to you that your cure is the establishment of the Islamic Khilafah with the thoughts and rules of Islam, thus the method of work has become as clear as the sun in the sky and the objective has become tangibly specified for everyone. Therefore, we invite you to revive the Islamic Aqeedah in your hearts by making your link with Allah (swt) constant, carrying the Da'wah of Allah assiduously and by having confidence in the Shari’ah of Allah and making the Islamic fraternity the only bond that binds all Muslims together. We urge you to work with us in constant assiduity and full awareness, as well as true sacrifice to restore the Islamic Khilafah, by spreading the thoughts of Islam and struggling for their sake, so that you may hoist the banner of Islam high to eclipse all other banners and so that you may hold the Word of Allah supreme and resume the carrying of the Islamic Message to the world as a light and guidance to it.
He ta’ala says, “Allah has promised, to those among you who believe and work righteous deeds, that He will, of surety, grant them in the land, inheritance of power, as He granted it to those before them; that He will establish in authority their Deen – the one which He has chosen for them; and that He will change their state, after the fear in which they lived, to one of security and peace.” (TMQ)
