O Muslim Scholars:
You See the Terrorism of Organizations But You Cannot See the Terrorism of America and its Agents? This is Strange Indeed!
As part of its activities in its 25th legitimate session conference, under the slogan of "Moderation is a Legitimate and Civilized Methodology", during the period of 2-6 Rabbi’ Al Awwal 1436 AH, in the Dutch city of Eindhoven, “Al Waqf al Islami Foundation” organized a forum of what it called the "The Phenomenon of Terrorism: the Concept, Its Manifestation, Its Causes, and Ways of Prevention"; where the Ulema speakers condemned the situation of the Muslims today and defined it as the main contributor to the emergence of what they called "the Phenomenon of Terrorism" in the world. They diagnosed the disease and prescribed the treatment in the commitment to morality and the return to the true Deen of Islam, which obliges the Muslim to be "civilized" in his dealings with others; adding that renunciation of prejudice between the different races and school of thoughts (religious) is a divine honour.
As we follow with great pain the situation of the Islamic Ummah being described by the West as terrorism, until in their eyes every Muslim became a terrorist and Islam stands behind every terrorism act; we find your position strange, O Ulema, of standing on the side that opposes your Ummah through your support to the American discourse; rather than standing and supporting your bereaved Ummah that is slaughtered before your eyes from the vein to the vein. How we long for a man from you to stand up and point out the American crimes: in its support for claiming of the lives of your brothers in Ash-Sham in the hundreds of thousands, and its silence over the massacres in the land of Egypt Al Kinanah, and in tampering with the security and the wealth of Libya, and in terrorizing the people of the revolution in, and standing with the displacement of your Muslims brothers in Burma without fear or shame... Are you aware that the two pillars of righteousness or corruption are the rulers and scholars? As for the rulers, we have been stunned by their position, without exception, their loyalty to the West is undoubtedly proven, but we become more and more stunned by the day by a new group of the Ulema of the Ummah adhering to the dictates of the malicious West that is anti-Islam. This breaks our hearts and brings tears to our eyes!!
Terrorism, dear Ulema, was not invented by Ash-Sham’s revolution and was not the outcome of the Arab Spring, but it is that which is planned by the demons in the White House and was delivered by their head (the one who taught their sorcery) to its hired agents who rule us in the Muslim countries, to indulge in the shedding of the pure blood in the land of the Prophets. Unfortunately, your concern is no longer the terrorism of Bashar, but the terrorism of Ash-Sham’s Revolution! And not the terrorism of the aircrafts of Jordan, Saudi Arabia, the UAE and Qatar that drops fireballs received by the secured residents in Riqqa and Mosul, which claimed the lives of helpless children, women and men, and terrorism of the people of Gaza and the West Bank, but your eyes are blinded to the terrorism of the Jewish entity, and even terrorism of Abbas's Authority and standing against its own wounded people to please America and its child (Israel).
After all this, we ask you, did you not find the warm, exciting, and welcoming reception by the Netherlands and the European Union for you and your conference strange, at a time when they prevent the displaced Syrians of prayer in the refugee camps, and the security forces arrest Muslims in various parts of Europe, breaking the doors of their homes in the middle of the night and dragging them in a humiliating manner in front of their children and their wives, and throw them in the darkness of prisons for days and weeks without fixed charges, but only because they are Muslims attending mosques and Islamic study circles? Yet we do not hear from you a single word of condemnation for the actions of your hosts?!!
The plight of the Ummah of its scholars is harsher than that of its rulers, because it longs and yearns for a righteous scholar who will take a stance as Imam Ahmad and Al-Izz Ibn Abd Al-Salam, and Taqiudeen An-Nabhani, they sacrificed their lives for the pleasure of Allah (swt), and were victorious, by the permission of Allah...
The Ummah awakened and realized who is the enemy and who is the friend, and who is working for Allah and who is working for the Dunya! They are eager to have a strong scholar, pious and righteous like the predecessors, so be like them, do not waste this chance that is in your hands, and side with Allah (swt) and His Messenger (saw) and your Ummah and its revolutions, and reject the West and the agent rulers of the Muslims. And proclaim in their faces the word of truth, it will elevate you to the ranks of the martyrs, Hamza Ibn Abdul Muttalib may Allah be pleased with him.
﴿يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا لَا تَخُونُوا اللَّهَ وَالرَّسُولَ وَتَخُونُوا أَمَانَاتِكُمْ وَأَنْتُمْ تَعْلَمُونَ * وَاعْلَمُوا أَنَّمَا أَمْوَالُكُمْ وَأَوْلَادُكُمْ فِتْنَةٌ وَأَنَّ اللَّهَ عِنْدَهُ أَجْرٌ عَظِيمٌ
“O you who have believed, do not betray Allah and the Messenger or betray your trusts while you know [the consequence]. And know that your properties and your children are but a trial and that Allah has with Him a great reward.” [Al–Anfal: 27-28]
