Alhumdoelillah! All Praise and Glory belongs exclusively to Rahmathul Liel Ala'meen. Despite the ongoing genocide being perpetrated against the Muslims of Palestine, we are witnessing how a band of ill-equipped young Mujahids are confronting an avowed racist Zionist enemy of Islam. While these agents of Shaythaan may possess their weapons of mass destruction - rest assured that they are being driven to great despair by young Muslims who are driven on by the Command of Almighty Allah Subhanahu Wata'ala Who declares in verse 76 of Surah An-Nisaa:
"Those who believe fight in the Cause of Allah, And those who reject faith fight in the cause of evil (Tagut): So fight you against the friends of Shaythaan for feeble indeed is the cunning of Shaythaan."
The question of Palestine is without any question of a doubt an Islamic issue and belongs to each and every Muslim in the world. The illegal occupation of Palestine by a racist and blatant Zionist regime is part of a satanic design by the world-dominating powers. This evil plot was perpetrated by the British in the past and is today being carried out by the United States to weaken the Muslim Ummah and to sow seeds of disunity among Muslim States.
The clear message being echoed by the brave youth of Palestine is that their voices of surrender and compromise will not change. The first Intifadah ended as a result of insinuations by the Zionists and the support from the Americans. They were united in their lies when they hoodwinked the Muslims of Palestine into believing that their demands would be met by peaceful means.
The past ten years has shown that the efforts of the Zionists and their protectors were aimed at rescuing these racist Zionists from the relentless pressures being exerted on them by the courageous children of Palestine. Past promises to the Muslims were just empty illusions. Since the illegal inception of this cancerous entity in the very heart of the Muslim world, this illegitimate demon child of Shaythaan has consistently violated the inalienable rights of the Muslims. The Americans, together with their band of lackeys and desperados have justified and supported these ongoing Zionist atrocities with the main aim of legitimizing the genocide of Muslims.
It is a well-known fact that the Western powers have always had territorial ambitions towards Palestine and Bait-al-Muqaddis. The imposition of the Crusades against Muslims is vivid proof of their greed and their ambitions toward the sacred land. After the defeat of the Ottoman Empire in 1918, allied military commanders marching into Palestine declared that "today the Crusades have finally come to an end." The consequent occupation of Palestine by the Zionists was in accordance with a complex satanic scheme designed to prevent the re-establishment and re-emergence of powerful Islamic States.
There are documents proving that large numbers of non-Jews from Eastern Europe were forced to migrate to Palestine as Jews. The purpose was to install in the very heart of the Muslim world this illegal cancerous anti-Islamic state while pretending to help the victims of racism. Initially the Muslims were caught by surprise, since they were not aware of the depth of the evil scheme designed by the Zionists and their Western supporters. After the defeat of the Ottoman Empire the Sykes-Pico Treaty was concluded in secret to divide the Muslim territories among the victors of the war. The British promised to support the Zionists and brought Jews from all over Europe to Palestine while forcing Muslims from their beloved homeland.
In this long war, the enemies of Islam have made use of complicated instruments, including the power of international media and forums. On the one hand, they invite Muslims to show patience and tolerance and to engage in peace talks, and on the other hand they continue to support and arm the Zionists. Almighty Allah Subhanahu Wata'ala Alone is Gafooroor Raheem. He has brought many tyrants to their knees and grounded the arrogance and hatred of many insolent nations into dust disposing them into the trash heap of history.
It is Almighty Allah Alone Who will judge all those who connive at their crimes against humanity. His Divine Promise is that only by His justice will all criminals receive disgrace, ignominy and defeat and the oppressed will be rewarded with dignity and the ultimate triumph. It is the intense hatred towards Islam and for the Muslim Ummah, the Light of Almighty Allah Azza Wajjal and the Muhabbat of Nabee Muhammad Ibn Abdullah Sallallahoo Alayhi Wasallam that these deranged followers of Shaythaan wish to destroy for so declares Almighty Allah in verses 32 and 33 of Surah At-Taubah:
"They desire to extinguish Allah's Light with their mouths, and Allah refuses but to perfect His Light, though the unbelievers be averse. It is He Who sent His Messenger with guidance and the religion of Truth that He may uplift it above every creed, though the unbelievers be averse."
Our duty as Muslims is to show our ongoing support and commitment to the Intifadah for this is indeed a heavy responsibility on our shoulders. We must, above all else, demonstrate that the Ummah of Almighty Allah's Beloved Nabee Sallallahoo Alayhi Wasallam are determined to revive the best traditions of our glorious history. Uppermost among these traditions was the Muhabbat and the unity that brought them victory at the great Battle of Badr and victory against the Crusaders. In those great historic events, Muslims were joined in Jihad between the believers and unbelievers.
Today Muslims all over the world are witnessing the struggle of the brave young Mujahids' of Al-Quds. They have great hopes for this Intifadah. In the first Intifadah ten years ago, the climate of compromise and surrender gradually prevailed. There were those who trusted American lies, and there were also those who believed that Muslims could not resist and would ultimately have to succumb to international pressure to accept a compromise on American and Zionist terms.
The Intifadah is a popular Muslim uprising. The Muslims of Palestine have lost all hope in all schemes aimed at striking a compromise, and have realized that victory depends entirely on their Imaan, their undying love for Al-Islam and their resistance. They have suffered a great deal in their previous Intifadah and offered many martyrs for Islam. The so-called peace process and the Oslo scheme forced the Muslims to realize that there was no other alternative but through an all out popular uprising.
The Al-Aqsa Intifadah primarily revolves around Bait-al-Muqaddis. The spark that ignited Muslim rage stemmed from the gross insult to our beloved Masjid-ul-Aqsa by these racist Zionists. Realizing their Islamic duty to protect one of our three most religious and Holy shrines, these brave Muslims ignited the sacred flames of resistance against the illegal Zionist occupiers and usurpers.
The great Islamic uprising or "Islamic Awakening" began on the morning of Friday the 17th day of Ramadhaan in the second year after the Hijrah (which corresponds with March in the year 624 A.D.) under the leadership of Almighty Allah's Beloved Nabee Muhammad Sallallahoo Alayhi Wasallam at the Battle of Badr.
Allah be Praised! The victory at the Battle of Badr, the first pitched battle in Islam was the most glorious event in its history. The Battle of Badr endowed the Muslims with a will to win, the value of which cannot be reckoned in terms of men and money. Just as our Beloved Nabee Sallallahoo Alayhi Wasallam is an Exemplar to the Muslim Ummah, so is Badr the ideal of all Muslim battles. When Muslims fight, they must fight only for the Pleasure of Rahmathul Liel Ala'meen to establish His Truth.
No doubt any struggle means loss of lives and destruction of homes and property. It places a heavy and tremendous economic burden on people and causes much pain and anguish. But as Muslims, we must remember the outcome of all our sacrifices. Victory is so precious that we must be willing to pay the price if we are to bring these occupiers of Muslim Palestine to their knees. It is therefore Fard upon each and every one of us to support this Intifadah with our resources. The Zionist regime does not have the required power to engage itself in a long drawn out encounter with the Muslims. There are Jews in Israel today who are not prepared to put their lives on the line for the evil and political motives of the Zionists.
Let the Zionists vie with one another to set new national and regional records of savagery. Let them continue to kill innocent young infants and children who have become a threat to their illegal occupation. Let them continue to drive us out of our homes and our homeland. Let them continue to desecrate our Beloved Masjid-ul-Aqsa to their hearts content. Let them continue to blacken the pages of their history in the hope of achieving a greater Israel at the expense of innocent Muslim blood. Soon Insha'Allah, these criminals will stand before Almighty Allah Subhanahu Wata'ala Who will judge them with justice for He Alone determines a time for every nation beyond which it does not go.
The clear teachings (Bayyinat) and the guidance that the Most Glorious and Holy Qur'an refers to - do not only consist of matters of doctrine and ritual. These are indeed important. But as important, among other teachings, are the duties that the Most Holy Qur'an emphasizes concerning justice, brotherhood, Muhabbat and mutual defense amongst the Muslim Ummah. Not only is mutual defense a paramount duty of all Muslims concerning their brethren, in fact, the Most Holy Qur'an demands all Muslims to struggle for the liberation of all oppressed people in verse 75 of Surah An-Nisaa:
"And why should you not fight for the Cause of Allah and of those who are weak and oppressed and are ill-treated? Men, women and children whose cry is: Our Allah! Rescue us from this town whose people are oppressors. Give us a protecting friend and one who will defend us."
The Muslims of Palestine stand in desperate need of our urgent aid. The indifference of the Kuffar controlled United Nations and the western countries to the present genocide in Palestine is distressing and very painful; but what is more devastating is the disgraceful attitude and paralysis of the leaders of so called Muslim countries in the face of the trauma and strangulation of an important part of the Muslim Ummah. These leaders have sold their souls to Shaythaan and have bartered away the Aghirah for their earthly comforts.
The strength of the Islamic resistance lies in its ability to deal crushing blows in response to Zionist actions, and not relying on American lies or devious diplomatic efforts and mediation of the Kuffar when it comes to dealing with Muslim issues. The unity of the Muslims in Palestine lies in one fundamental point: anything that distracts them from the Path of Seerathal Mustaqeem and causes them to ignore the Zionist enemy will not be in the interest of the Ummah.
It has become very clear that those who thought that the question of Palestine relates only to a small part of the Islamic world were making a huge mistake. The enormous arsenal of nuclear weapons and other weapons of mass destruction in the hands of the Zionists are not only for defenseless Palestinians. This arsenal is being stockpiled to achieve its ambition to dominate the entire Islamic world.
The West feels threatened by Islamic awakening and revival as well as the enlargement of Muslim struggles in Palestine, Kashmir, Lebanon, Egypt, Iraq, Tunisia, Algeria, Morocco, Chechenia, Bosnia, Kosova, and Macedonia. They want to dry out the roots of Islamic thought but they are being driven to great despair for they know that Islam cannot be extinguished and that Islam will be here for as long as the sun will shine. This is the truth and it is this truth that's driving them all crazy.
Soon Insha'Allah, Palestine will be liberated by the continuation of our struggles and our ongoing support for our Muslim brothers, sisters, mothers, fathers and children in that devastated land. Bait-al-Muqaddis and Masjid-ul-Aqsa will one day soon be in our hands again and the Will of Almighty Allah Subhanahu Wata'ala shall prevail just as it did on the eve of the Battle of Badr when Almighty Allah revealed verse 45 of Surah Al-Qamar to our Beloved Nabee Muhammad Sallallahoo Alayhi Wasallam:
"Soon shall the enemy be routed and will turn and flee......"
