The Tyranny of the Rulers is Not a Reason for Rebellion

The goal of the Jihadist sects is one and the same: rebellion against those in authority and a desire to rule over the Muslim lands. They may alter their names and titles but their ideology remains the same. Islam itself, despite what these sects assert, forbids open censure and rebellion against even the most wicked and tyrannical of Muslim rulers. The Prophet of Allaah (Sallallahu alayhi wassallam), upon whose statements and actions we establish our religion, stated in an authentic tradition: “There will appear after me rulers, they will not guide by my guidance, and they will not establish my Sunnah; there will be amongst them men whose hearts will Read more ...

The State of the Region of Najd and Arabia in the Time of Ibn ‘Abdul-Wahhab

The State of the Region of Najd, Arabia in the Time of Ibn 'Abdul-Wahhab and the First Saudi State The Turkish Ottoman Empire had pockets of sovereignty in the Arabian lands. It became little more than a shell in Egypt, Syria and Iraq by the eighteenth century. As for the Arabian Peninsula, then the Ottomans never inhabited the vast areas of the Najd, the region in which Ibn 'Abdul-Wahhab was born and raised. Though they controlled Baghdad and Basrah in Iraq, the closest they came to the Najd was al-Ahsa in 1592CE, and they had a Turkish garrison at al-Hufoof, however only eighty years later the Bedouin tribe of Banu Khalid fell upon the Turks and expelled Read more ...

Do not enter the Ruins of the Punished People for mere Sightseeing

Sufyaan [ibn 'Uyayanah] narrated to us from 'Abdullaah ibn Deenaar from 'Abdullaah ibn 'Umar (radhiAllaahu anhu) that the Prophet (Sallallahu alayhi wassallam) said, "Do not enter the ruins of the people who were previously punished unless you are weeping. If you are not weeping, then do not enter their ruins, for I fear that what has befallen them may also befall you." [Musnad Ahmad, Vol. 2, p. 9. The isnaad of this hadeeth is saheeh according to the conditions set by al-Bukhari and Muslim.] The Prophet (Sallallahu alayhi wassallam) said this to his companions when he led them, in 9 AH, in an expedition to Tabook (about 400 miles north of Madinah) Read more ...

Forget Daesh: Humanity is at Stake

By Ramzy Baroud | Source: PalestineChronicle I still remember that smug look on his face, followed by the matter-of-fact remarks that had western journalists laugh out loud. “I’m now going to show you a picture of the luckiest man in Iraq,” General Norman Schwarzkopf, known as ‘Stormin’ Norman, said at a press conference sometime in 1991, as he showed a video of US bombs blasting an Iraqi bridge, seconds after the Iraqi driver managed to cross it. But then, a far more unjust invasion and war followed in 2003, following a decade-long siege that cost Iraq a million of its children and its entire economy. It marked the end of sanity and the dissipation Read more ...

From Pol Pot to ISIS: The Blood Never Dried

By John Pilger | Source: PalestineChronicle In transmitting President Richard Nixon’s orders for a “massive” bombing of Cambodia in 1969, Henry Kissinger said, “Anything that flies on everything that moves”.  As Barack Obama wages his seventh war against the Muslim world since he was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize, and Francois Hollande promises a “merciless” attack on that the rubble of Syria, the orchestrated hysteria and lies make one almost nostalgic for Kissinger’s murderous honesty. As a witness to the human consequences of aerial savagery – including the beheading of victims, their parts festooning trees and fields – Read more ...

Humble Message from the Life of Omar

When the Muslims surrounded Jerusalem, the inhabitants said they would surrender the city only if the Muslim ruler himself — Omar, the second successor or “Caliph,” of the Prophet Muhammad— came to them. [1] So Omar sojourned by camel from Damascus, Syria to Jerusalem in the Holy Land. As Omar approached the city, his servant became weary, so he ordered his servant to ride the steed while he walked it by the reins. When they entered Jerusalem —records indicate it very well could have been Easter— the people of the city mistook the servant for the Caliph. When corrected, they couldn’t believe that this man in tattered and dirty clothes, leading Read more ...

The Fig and the Olive, Mount Sinai, and the City of Security (Makkah)

“By the fig, and the olive, By Mount Sinai, And by this city of security (Makkah). Verily, We created man of the best stature (mould), Then We reduced him to the lowest of the low, Save those who believe (in Islamic Monotheism) and do righteous deeds, then they shall have a reward without end (Paradise). Then what (or who) causes you (O disbelievers) to deny the Recompense (i.e. Day of Resurrection)? Is not Allah the Best of judges?” [Surah At-Tin, 95:1-8] Here, Allah Subhanahu ta’ala swears by holy and honored places, places that He Subhanahu ta’ala chose for revelation to come down to His Prophets and Messengers. The first of those places is Read more ...

Israel’s Stolen Wars

Source : PalestineChronicle | By Uri Avnery If somebody steals something precious from you, say a diamond, you may be angry. Even God himself said so. When He sent a worm to kill the gourd which provided shade for the prophet Jonah in the desert, He asked him maliciously: “Doest thou well to be angry for the gourd?” (Jonah 4:9) And now somebody has stolen from us something much more precious than a diamond or a gourd. A war. Perhaps even two wars. So we have every right to be furious. War No. 1 was to have taken place in Syria. The US was to attack the regime of Bashar al-Assad. A medical operation: short, clean, surgical. When Read more ...
