As the Muslim defeatists continue to fall victim to the West’s incessant campaign set to uproot and brainwash the global Muslim identity and the erase the bonds of the Muslim loyalty, we the Muslims of Ahlus-Sunnah wal-Jamaa’ah seek to make our enmity and hostility for the Muslim adversaries clear and unambiguous in order that we free ourselves of any ties to and any sympathy for the avowed enemies of Islam.
Know, oh Muslims, that Allah [swt] has commanded us to know our enemies and to treat them as such; and has forbidden us from showing them any sympathy and loyalty, as He [swt] says, “Verily, Allah does not love the disbelievers” (3:32). Indeed showing enmity to the enemies of Allah and knowing their plots is a condition of being Muslim, as Allah [swt] warns the believers, “Verily the Kuffar are ever unto you open enemies” (4:101). Iblees, ar-Rajeem, has adopted the West as his contrivance in his eternal war against Islam and against those who try to spread the light of truth and justice upon the earth. The recent intensification of this war and the West’s legitimization of it under the clever pretext of spreading ‘freedom’ and ‘peace’ has succeeded in bedazzling the Muslim masses with clever rhetoric that masks a ruthless crusade seeking nothing short of the total annihilation of Islam.
We the Muslims of Ahlus Sunnah wal-Jamaa’ah seek to call out the true terrorists and the true criminals in this war between emaan and kufr, and we condemn the brutality and the intimidation Muslim innocents have been subjected to at the hands of the West and her allies across the globe.
We condemn the terrorism in Iraq and Afghanistan perpetrated under the semblance of “spreading freedom and democracy in the Middle East.” We condemn the continued and unabashed terrorism committed by the state of Israel in Palestine with U.S. funds under the pretext of establishing a dual state. We condemn the unceasing Russian terror campaigns in Chechnya and Dagestan, and we condemn the state-sponsored genocide of Muslims across the state of India. We condemn the persecution of Muslims in China, Uzbekistan, Burma, Sudan and the persecution of countless muwahideen in the Arab states by their own governments for the mere reason that they seek to manifest their belief in word and in action.
Moreover, we denounce the cowardly and despotic rulers of the Muslim lands who have failed miserably in their duties and proudly allied themselves with the camp of Shaytaan. These defeatist governments who have opened up the Muslim lands to the West and allowed the wealth and the resources of the Ummah to be squandered and used by the terrorists show no compassion for the Muslims as their blood is shed, as their honor is raped, as their children are massacred, and as their cries unceasingly resound every second throughout the Heavens and the Earth. They ridicule the religion of Allah and His shariah and their words of contempt and condemnation are reserved only for those who seek to avenge for the Muslim honor. They utter not a word of condemnation against those who have made the defeat of Islam their open and avowed priority. Indeed we are free of these governments and anyone who shows them the slightest support.
Oh Muslims know that Allah [swt] has honored us with a religion that has elevated the lowest of us, and know that whoever seeks honor in any belief, any ideology, any religion, or any alliance other than Islam will find himself engulfed in humiliation and will find himself in a perpetual state of defeat. Know that all might and greatness is derived from the Might and Greatness of Allah [swt], and whoever is not attached to Allah and what He loves and what He has commanded will be wretched and weak both in this life and in the Hereafter.
The dividing line between emaan and kufr is clearer than ever, and anyone who chooses to remain ignorant of the path of Ahlus-Sunnah wal-Jamaa’ah does so willingly. Those Muslims who cry for the slain Westerners; those Muslims who faithfully light candles and organize vigils every September 11th, those Muslims who seek to modernize Islam and elevate it in the eyes of the disbelievers and never speak a word of praise for those who are struggling everyday against the kufr and zulm of the oppressors must realize their state of humiliated defeat and surrender, and heed the stern warning of Allah [swt] when He says, “Let not the believers take the disbelievers as Auliyâ (supporters, helpers, etc.) instead of the believers, and whoever does that will never be helped by Allâh in any way, except if you indeed fear a danger from them. And Allâh warns you against Himself (His Punishment), and to Allâh is the final return.” (3:28)
