800 Police Involved in Raids; Police won't say how many are
The Australian federal police are refusing to confirm how
many people are still being detained without charge as a
result of counter-terrorism raids in NSW on Thursday. In a
press conference on Friday the acting AFP commissioner,
Andrew Colvin, refused to answer questions about how many
people were being detained without charge, when the number
of people detained would be made public, or whether they had
been brought before a magistrate for their detention to be
continued. The AFP, NSW police and the Australian Security
and Intelligence Organisation took part in dawn raids in
Sydney on Thursday, in what was touted as Australia's
largest counter-terrorism operation ever.
'Stop terrorizing Muslims': hundreds join Sydney protest
against terror raids
Signs reading "terror raids cannot break the spirit of
Muslims" and "stop terrorising Muslims" were waived by about
10 people among the 200 who rallied in western Sydney to
demonstrate against a series of pre-dawn anti-terrorism
The protesters met outside Lakemba train station on Thursday
night for the snap action, organised via social media.
About 50 people were watching from across the road.The event
was promoted under a banner featuring the hardline
organisation Hizb Ut-Tahrir and is calling on the Muslim
community to "stand as one" against "government
"Women, children should be safe from the terror of the
state," they chanted.
The signs had small Hizb Ut-Tahrir Australia logos.
The atmosphere was calm with most people arriving and
greeting friends and acquaintances before quietly
congregating in a little park next to the train station.
The rally comes after after 15 people were detained during
Australia's largest counter-terrorism operation.
"We're not hear to disrupt security," Hizb Ut-Tahrir speaker
Uthman Badar told the crowd. "Muslims are as much concerned
about security and peace as everyone else." The Muslim
community would be "fools" if they were deceived by the spin
being used to politicise security issues, he added.
He said the raids were about creating the "hysteria" needed
to make the Muslim community scapegoats.
"We reject the terror laws, they only serve American wars,"
the crowd chanted before Mr Badar added that western foreign
policy was responsible for terrorism.
"We're not fools. We know what the intent with all of this
is," he said. "The people that are leading this, the govt
and its agencies ... the world has not seen greater terror
that what they have infected around the world."
An incensed young man who said his mother was punched by
police as the family's home was raided on Thursday morning
yelled at the crowd to "wake up." "What are you going to do
about it? Talk? Seriously? Talk?" "May Allah curse these
Br. Kaukab Siddique's Latest Khutba
On September 19, Br.Kaukab Siddique gave the juma' khutba in
central Baltimore, MD. As it's a small mosque and issues are
extremely important, the main points of the khutba are
summarized below for nationwide distribution.
Text: "Your wealth and your children are FITNA, whereas
Allah! with Him is an immense reward." [Qur'an 64:15]
Wealth and Children Sources of Great Disruption,
Temptation & Trial - FITNA [specially in USA].
Secretary of State Kerry's Blatant Lies about IS
[Islamic Caliphate]. Hypocrisy & "Muslims."
Islam does not see wealth as a reason to praise, imitate
or follow anyone. The Qur'an calls it FITNA, a source of
disruption, conflict and deviation from faith in Allah.
In America, rich people are seen as role models. The
wealthier they are, the more they are praised. Some are
adored and almost worshiped because they are entertainers
such as Beyoncé and JZ.
The way wealth can be a blessing is when it is spent in
the way of Allah, for charity, struggle against evil and to
bring prosperity to all rather than to a few.
The greatest example of turning wealth into a blessing is
the life of Usman, r.a., one of the holiest Companions of
the Prophet, pbuh, who gave away so much that it boggles the
mind. All the sahaba are good examples.
Usman, r.a. above all other not only owing to his
incomparable charity but also owing to his compilation of
the Qur'an and the way he accepted martyrdom. He is targeted
by sectarians; hence we must study his life with more
Children are a great blessing but they can also hurt us
the most because they are so close to us. Their fitna can
tear apart our hearts. Look at the example of the son of
Noah, pbuh. He ridiculed his father's faith and refused to
enter the boat of faith and trust in Allah Noah constructed.
He could not believe that a flood can come which would drown
even the mountains.
Look at our own society, how even the children of Muslims
go astray, getting into liquor, gambling and fornication.
They can really hurt us by bringing the devil into Muslim
Islam does not run in families. Islam is a choice. Each
of us must make that choice. Even a prophet's son was not
exempt from fitna.
Hypocrisy is a major problem in times of conflict. Many
people with beards, who pray and fast, side with the enemies
of Islam. Hypocrites used to pray even in the mosque of the
We can defeat hypocrisy by asking the question: Whose
side are you on?
We have kings who claim to be Muslims but Islam has made
kingship HARAM. Allah Alone is the King.
Islam teaches Caliphate as the authentic form of Islamic
rule. All the enemies of Islam will oppose Caliphate.
Muslims should note the daily attacks on the Caliphate
[IS] in he media. Do not be fooled. These are attacks on
We all know that the media lie on almost all issues, be
it police brutality or political prisoners or war.
In spite of knowing this daily burst of lies from the
media, when the SAME media attack ISIS, we start believing
Secretary of State John Kerry is a Kafir. He has gone to
the extent of saying that ISIS is "mutilating, raping and
killing women." He does not have a shred of evidence for
this blatant LIE. These are strict Muslims and for them rape
is a capital crime. Rape is common in America. Kerry has not
spoken against it.
During the Jewish Zionist assault on Gaza, almost 500
children were killed along with 1500 other civilians by the
Israelis using weapons supplied by the US. Mr. Kerry has not
recognized the death of even ONE child. With those moral
standards, on what basis can American imperialists dare
speak against the Caliphate.
Do not be fooled by the media hype against IS. Whenever
Muslims set up the Caliphate, it will be attacked by the

The Wolf in the House
If you have a large house with 10 rooms and a wolf enters
your house, would it be wise for you to continue to think
you are safe and secure. (This is happening with our nations
and Israel running rampant.)
Change your thinking and your life will change. It's as
simple as that.
Happiness can happen with praise and positive self talk,
Future will be bright for Muslims if they remove their
sun glasses and see the reality.
You cannot change by sitting, watching TV and eating from
a bag of potato chips.
If you believe in Islam, why not convey the message and
show the example?
Break the cycle of weakness and defeat by action.
Action means exposing falsehood and speaking the truth.
Change the world instead of hiding from the world.
Begin by helping your wife and your daughters because
they can ,learn fast from you and pass on what is good to
those whom you cannot reach.

Catastrophic Floods exacerbated by the Pakistani
Government's failure to implement an effective flood warning
system and by India's control over the dams.
LAHORE, Sep. 19: The central Shoora of the Jamaat e Islami,
Pakistan, has expressed deep grief over the heavy losses of
life and property caused by the floods and deplored that the
government had failed to take necessary steps to protect the
masses from the calamity.
A resolution adopted by the Shoora stressed upon the rulers
to adopt an effective strategy to stop India from building
dams on the Pakistani rivers and enforce an effective flood
warning system. It urged the government to lodge protest
with New Delhi over the sudden release of flood water and
take up the matter with the international forums.
It also demanded implementation of the report of the Flood
Commission, 2010 and setting up a judicial commission to
look into the government lapses behind the recent and the
current year floods. It demanded immediate and adequate
compensation for those affected.

"Those who thought that CAIR is not the voice of Imperialism
and Zionism should read this and do TAWBA" - New Trend
CAIR's Nihad Awad, a long time bootlicker of the Zionist
power structure published this slavish article in Time
Here is Nihad Awad uncut:
ISIS Is Not Just Un-Islamic, It Is Anti-Islamic
If we want to stop ISIS, we must deny it any claim to
represent Islam and starve it of the fuel of injustice
Despite misappropriating and misusing the name "Islamic
State," ISIS is little more than a criminal gang that
attaches itself like a leech to revered symbols of Islam. It
exploits counterproductive Western policies driving
desperate people into its fold and uses injustices in the
Muslim world as a smokescreen to cover its own cruelty.
When ISIS uses the Islamic declaration of faith, the
Shahada, and the Prophet Muhammad's (peace be upon him) seal
on its flag, it quite literally - and falsely - claims to
uphold the banner of Islam. When ISIS says it is
establishing a "Caliphate," an historic term that resonates
with Muslims worldwide, it does so to fool those who have
experienced nothing but injustice and oppression into
believing past glories will be restored.
Unfortunately, the media, political analysts and public
officials - really all of us - are unwilling participants in
ISIS's public relations branding campaign. Every time we
refer to ISIS as the "Islamic State," call its members
"jihadists" or in any way grant it the religious legitimacy
that it so desperately seeks, we simultaneously boost its
brand, tarnish the image of Islam and further marginalize
the vast majority of Muslims who are disgusted by the
group's un-Islamic actions.
Islam prohibits the extremism exhibited by ISIS. An
essential part of the faith is moderation.
As the Quran, Islam's foundational text, states clearly: "We
made you to be a community of the middle way, so that (with
the example of your lives) you might bear witness to the
truth before all mankind." (Quran, 2:143)
The Quran also states: "O you who believe! Stand out firmly
for justice, as witnesses to God, even against yourselves,
or your parents, or your kin, and whether it be (against)
rich or poor: for God can best protect both." (Quran,
Literally, jihad means to struggle, strive and exert effort.
It is a central and broad Islamic concept that includes
struggle against evil inclinations within oneself, struggle
to improve the quality of life in society, struggle in the
battlefield for self-defense (e.g., having a standing army
for national defense), or fighting against tyranny or
While Islam allows legitimate self defense, it prohibits the
killing of non-combatants, even in times of war or conflict.
Aggression is never permitted. "And fight in the cause of
God those who fight against you, and do not commit
aggression. Indeed God does not love those who are
aggressors," (The Quran, 2:190).
Extremist Muslims who commit crimes like those carried out
by ISIS should be called criminals. We must not legitimize
their actions by calling them jihadists. The American
Muslim community and Muslim scholars around the world have
repudiated and rejected ISIS's twisted ideology, calling it
not just un-Islamic, but "anti-Islamic."
The Organization of Islamic Cooperation, the "Muslim U.N.,"
said ISIS has "nothing to do with Islam," and has committed
crimes "that cannot be tolerated." Along with denying ISIS
religious legitimacy and severing its links to revered
Islamic symbols and terms, we can deny it a smokescreen for
its injustices and stop driving suffering people into its
arms by changing our own policies.
There would be no ISIS in Syria if we had fully supported
the struggle for freedom in that nation since 2011. It was
only the political vacuum created by our lack of support for
the mainstream opposition to the brutal Syrian regime, and
the resulting slaughter of more than 200,000 people and the
displacement of millions more, which gave ISIS space to form
We need to support the mainstream Syrian political and
military opposition seeking freedom and democracy. A free
and democratic Syria and region is the long-term guarantee
for the defeat and marginalization of groups like ISIS.
We also need to support democracy and human rights in Iraq,
Egypt, and throughout the region. The fanaticism and
barbarism of ISIS and other terror groups is fueled by the
brutal repression of dictatorships that are sadly often
supported by the United States. Religious fanaticism and
political oppression are mirror images of each other and
lead to the same bloody results.
ISIS was only able to penetrate Iraq because we for too long
backed a government that completely marginalized the Sunni
Muslims and other ethnic and religious minorities. Iraqis
who faced being shot at a government checkpoint for being a
member of the "wrong" sect found out too late that ISIS was
a worse alternative. If we want to stop ISIS, we must deny
it any claim to represent Islam and starve it of the fuel of
injustice. It is up to our political leaders to take the
lead through a comprehensive international strategy, not in
the number of bombs that can be dropped, but in the
establishment of the freedom and justice that will spell the
end for ISIS and its ilk.

Our America: Pro-Zionist Hate Group in Action.
CAIR incites fear among Muslims making Geller and other
Zionist gangsters Bolder by Sis. Aisha [Jamaat al-Muslimeen
New York City.]
We have known for years that this war on terror is actually
a war on Islam. The kuffar have equated Islam with
terrorism. Once again, some Islamaphobic group is forcing
the Metropolitan Transit Authority to run ads in an
New York City - They are at it, again! A group called
American Freedom Defense Initiative, run by Zionist Pig
Pamela Geller, has submitted a series of anti-Muslim ads to
the Metropolitan Transit Authority. However, the MTA has
refused to run most of the ads for fear that they will
incite mob violence against Muslims. In 2012, a federal
court ruled that the MTA could not refuse to run
controversial ads because groups have a First Amendment
right to expression through those ads. Back then, the
offender was the same: Pamela Geller, who also runs the
Zionist group Atlas Shrugged, which is vehemently opposed to
Islam anywhere in the world.
However, the MTA can refuse to run ads that they believe may
incite harm to others. In this case, the ad the MTA refused
read: "Killing Jews is Worship that draws us close to
Allah." - Hamas MTV That's His Jihad. What yours?
Obviously the ad is inciting violence against Muslims.
Pamela Geller claims that the goal of the group's ads is to
educate Muslims about the immorality of Islamic extremism.
One of the other ads shows images of James Foley before his
beheading by the Islamic State.
This Obamanation in the White House is misusing American Law
to make it illegal to practice Islam in America! They are
punishing us for making contact with other Muslims on the
other side of the World. They have placed a certain amount
of Muslim countries on some terrorist country list
automatically turning us into criminals for having traveled
there 20 years ago! The Muslim Community is no better off
now than it was before 9/11/2001.
The kuffar had help and it was fake Muslim organizations
such as, C.A.I.R., I.S.N.A., and M.S.A. These double agents
have not only worked with the Justice Department but,
bragged about their special, close relationship with this
oppressive entity! These organizations have NEVER put
together any strong response against the kuffar in defense
of Islam. They only give interviews and press releases
expressing fear of attacks on Muslims, C.A.I.R. is very good
at trying to incite fear among Muslims.
Just as Black-Americans are NOW getting wise to Rev. Al
Charlatan's tactics and have begun to turn away from him and
Uncle Jesse, I pray that Muslims start to turn away from
these fake Muslim organizations, as well.
I do see more younger Muslims speaking out and organizing
more. Al-humdulillah. I wrote a letter to the MTA expressing

Our America: War Against Islam
Mujahideen overseas call for Dr. Aafia's freedom. Aafia Ends
all her appeals.by Sis. Aisha [Jamaat al-Muslimeen New York
An article in Yahoo! News claims that the Islamic State
wanted Dr. Aafia Siddiqui freed in exchange for journalist
James Foley's freedom, as well as the termination of U.S.
airstrikes in Iraq and Syria, but, they eventually beheaded
Foley when their demands went unmet.
Unfortunately, Dr. Aafia Siddiqui wrote a letter to U.S.
District Court Judge Richard Berman, in Manhattan, on July
2nd seeking to end all of her appeals. He has yet to respond
to her letter. Dr. Siddiqui indicated in the letter that she
would rather be freed and return to Pakistan under some form
of diplomacy rather than through the justice system, which
she deems unjust. She has been sentenced to 86 years in
prison for the attempted murder of F.B.I. agents. Her trial
was a sham and so was her conviction. Her attorneys have
stated that they do not believe that Dr. Siddiqui
understands the ramifications of her request. She resides at
the Federal Medical Center Carswell, [Texas] which severely
restricts any outside contact with her.
However, she continues to garner support all over the Muslim
World, al-humdulillah. The Taliban, Al-Qaeda, and the
Islamic State have all offered prisoners in exchange for her
freedom, along with other demands.

Tariq Mehenna:Devoted to Peaceful Change Sentenced Beyond
Decency. The Suffering of a man of God Bearable owing to his
Deep Faith in Allah. by Sis. Karin Friedemann [Boston]
Tariq Mehanna, who was sentenced to 17 1/2 years on bogus
terrorism support charges in Boston federal court in 2011,
has shown himself to be a model of patience and gratitude to
God as he sits in the CMU Marion. In a recent letter to this
author, Tariq wrote: "Things are OK, though. I've got peace
and quiet, and time to read and think, which is worth more
than the world in gold."
Tariq, now 32, was imprisoned for thought crimes, namely the
online translation of ancient Arabic texts on jihad, but he
believes the charges came in retaliation to his resistance
to the FBI's bid to make him an informant.
"No evidence linked him to actual acts of terrorism or
suggested that he had conspired with a real-world terrorist
organization or provided any terrorist group with property,
advice assistance or the like," reported Amna Akbar in the
Despite this tremendous setback, the young man has chosen to
use his time wisely, producing scriptural commentary to be
disseminated throughout the internet. His new article, sent
out on September 6, 2014, begins:
"You would likely find the prison environment to be boring.
The color scheme of the place - an exotic array of grays and
off-whites - itself does wonders in dulling the mind. Most
people cannot live without entertainment, and entertainment
options are limited in here. Prisoners typically opt for TV.
Since I don't watch much TV, I thus spend quite a bit of
time in my cell reading. My reading is all over the place
(history, sociology, astronomy, medicine, and plenty of
newspapers), but the field most enjoyable to me is that of
He mentions a hadith that has particular significance to the
prisoner in isolation: "It is related that the great
scholar and Mujahid, 'Abdullah bin al-Mubarak, used to spend
a lot of time alone. He was once asked: "Aren't you lonely,
sitting by yourself?" He replied: 'How can I be lonely while
sitting with the Prophet (peace be upon him), the Sahabah,
and the Tabi'in?' He was referring to the books he was
surrounded with that contained their life stories and
narrated statements. Each time such a book is opened, the
reader is indeed reaching back through time, to another part
of the Earth, to meet the Prophet and the thousands of
people who comprised the best generations of human history,
and to learn from their wisdom."
He takes comfort in knowing the the Prophet (pbuh) gave his
glad tiding to the Believers that would come later,
especially toward the End Time, because they believed in him
even having never seen him. Yet Tariq also notes how the
Believers are indeed persecuted outcasts in the present day
just as they were in the beginning of Islam.
"Were the Sahabah to visit our world, they would be walking
into a repeat of this. Just as they saw the Makkans having
invented for themselves a religion containing mere remnants
of the teachings of Ibrahim, the Sahabah would see the
'Western Islam' the people have invented for themselves
today and recognize nothing but remnants of what they were
taught by the Prophet in Madinah. Of all things, they would
be most saddened to see many claimants to Islam still
clueless about what he taught is the very tightest bond of
Iman itself: Wala' & Bara' - this despite the untold amount
of material that has been authored and translated into every
imaginable language on the topic, and despite us living in
an era where the enemy has done away with all pretense. The
Sahabah would wince at the fact that while the hypocrites
they faced in Madinah at least were opportunists who sided
with the believers when they had the upper hand, today's
hypocrites unconditionally side with the enemy through thick
Tariq reminds us that Ibn Taymiyyah also wrote that "it has
been authentically reported through numerous chains of
narration that the Prophet said: "There will always be a
group of my ummah that is victoriously upon the truth until
the Hour comes, and they will not be harmed by those who
abandon or oppose them."
Tariq continues: "Commenting on that same hadith, an-Nawawi
wrote: 'It could be said that this group is dispersed
between the various categories of believers. Some of them
are courageous warriors, some are experts in Fiqh, some are
experts in Hadith, some are ascetics, some are those who
enjoin what is good and forbid what is wrong, and some are
known for other forms of good. And they are not necessarily
concentrated in one location. Rather, they could be
scattered throughout the Earth.'"
Under the most difficult circumstances our brother reminds
us that there is nothing more important than striving in the
way of Allah for truth and justice. At the end of this

Sheikh Abu Zubair Adil al-Abab on: The Reality of the Rulers
Answering the claim that Mujahideen are fighting other
Muslims [Saudis, Egyptians etc] and should be condemned.
Praise be to Allah, Lord of all creation, Who says in the
Quran: "That the way of the sinners may be shown up". (The
Holy Quran, Surah 6. "Cattle, Livestock", verse 55)
Prayers and peace upon the most honored of the Prophets and
Messengers, Muhammad bin Abdullah, the honest and truthful,
who says in the blessed Sunnah: "The bonds of Islam will be
broken one by one. Every time a bond is undone, the people
will cling to the bond that follows. The first of these bond
is rulership and the last is prayer." Reported by Ahmad and
Tabarani. Al-Hakim stated that the chain is authentic.
He who examines the biographies of the early (Muslims) and
how they dealt with unjust imams would find among the noble
Companions and followers those that revolted against leaders
of tyranny and injustice by the sword and by force. The
revered Companion Abdullah bin Zubair, may Allah be pleased
with him, revolted in Mecca and captured it for no reason
other than the injustice which prevailed there. Hussain bin
Ali, may Allah be pleased with him, rebelled against Yazid
bin Muawiya. Moreover, Abdullah bin Abbas advised him to go
to Yemen to plan and train.
Others did not revolt, such as the revered Companion
Abdullah bin Umar, may Allah be pleased with him, among
others. The pages of history books have recorded numerous
biographies of noble ulema, great jurists, revered Hadith
scholars and powerful interpreters of the Quran who rebelled
against unjust and tyrannical leaders, such as Said bin
Jubayr, al-Shaabi, Ibn Abi Leila, al-Buhturi and others.
Those ulema who recite the Quran joined with Abdul Rahman
bin al-Ashaath in revolt against al-Hajjaj bin Yusuf
al-Thaqafi. Their number was 100,000 or more. Imam
al-Jassas, a Hanafi jurist, said of Imam Abi Hanifa, who
died in the year 150 Hijri, may Allah have mercy on him,
that his school (of religious jurisprudence) was famous in
battling tyranny and unjust imams.
Likewise, Imam Malik, may Allah have mercy on him, deemed it
appropriate to revolt against unjust and tyrannical rulers.
Imam Ibn Jarir reported that when he (Ibn Malik) issued a
verdict to the people in favor of the actions of Muhammad
bin Abdullah al-Hasan, who revolted in the year 145 Hijri,
he was told "On our conscience is allegiance to al-Mansur."
He said: "You were forced to swear and allegiance cannot be
compelled." Here ends his words as reported in Ibn Kathir's
book al-Bidaya wal-Nihaya.
So it was with the disciples of Malik afterwards. Yahya bin
Yahya al-Laithi, a jurist of al-Andalus, and Qar'us bin
Abbas, were among those who rebelled against the rule of bin
Hisham bin al-Dakhil in 202 Hijri, as was reported in Ibn
alAthir's book al-Kamil and in Qadi Iyad's book Tarteeb
al-Madarik wa Taqreeb al-Maslik.
Also, Imam al-Nawawi reported in his book Sharh Sahih Muslim
that the Imam al-Haramain and Shafa'i jurist Abu al-Mu'ali
al-Juwayni said: "If a temporal ruler commits an outrage and
his tyranny and injustice become evident and he does not
restrain himself when verbally rebuked for his ill-doing,
the people of influence may act together to overthrow him
even by drawing weapons and launching wars."
Among those who also believed in the permissibility of
rebelling against an unjust imam were the Hanbali jurists
Ibn Razeen, Ibn Aqeel and Ibn al-Juzi, as was reported in
Abdullah Umar's book al-Imamatu al-Uzma. Among the ulema
that rebelled against unjust rulers in their day was Imam
Ahmad bin Nasr al-Khaza'i until he was killed. He was
praised by Ahmad bin Hanbal and was mentioned in Ibn
Kathir's book al-Bidaya wal-Nihaya.
Praise Allah, if this is in regard to unjust leaders, then
what about the rulers of our day who are allies of the Jews
and Christians and work together to sell Bait al-Maqdis to
the Jews and to strike Gaza and the Mujahideen everywhere
under the pretext of combating terrorism. Those who rebelled
against the rulers of their times found justification in a
collection of evidence. As the Almighty said: "But My
promise is not within the reach of evildoers". (The Holy
Quran, Surah 2. "The Cow", verse 124)
They also used the general evidence commanding the enjoining
of what is right and forbidding what is wrong and destroying
it. Among those who opposed rebelling against unjust rulers
were Imam al-Tahawi and al-Nawawi. This was favored by the
interpreter of al-Tahawi and also Ibn Hajar and those who
followed their doctrine.
Based on the above, we see that the Salaf differed on the
issue of rebelling against unjust and tyrannical leaders.
Then why do we see some people propose the issue as if it is
decisive and indisputable? On the other hand, if we condone
refraining from rebelling against unjust leaders, because of
this unexpected difference, does that permit us to submit to
or be silent about apostate rulers? The existing consensus,
old and new, is that the Imamate may not be contracted to a
kaffir (infidel). The Almighty says: "And never will Allah
grant to the unbelievers a way (to triumph) over believers".
(The Holy Quran, Surah 4. "The Women", verse 141)
One of the ways for the unbelievers to triumph over the
believers is for there to be a ruler and commander over them
who rules them by his whims, rules and laws. The Almighty
said: "And follow not the bidding of those who are
extravagant, Who make mischief in the land and mend not
their ways". (The Holy Quran, Surah 26. "The Poets", verses
Ibn Abbas, may Allah be pleased with him, reported that the
Messenger of Allah, prayers and peace be upon him, said:
"Whoever changes his religion, kill him". (Narrated by
No two (individuals) can disagree that whoever replaces the
law of the Most Merciful with man-made laws is a kaffir of
the greatest degree and excommunicated from the faith. The
Almighty said: "What! Have they partners who established
for them some religion without the permission of Allah? Had
it not been for the Decree of Judgement, the matter would
have been decided between them (at once). But verily the
wrong-doers will have a grievous penalty". (The Holy Quran,
Surah 42. "Councel, Consultation", verse 21)
And the Almighty said: "They take their priests and their
anchorites to be their lords in derogation of Allah, and
(they take as their Lord) Christ the son of Mary; yet they
were commanded to worship but One Allah. There is no god but
He. Praise and Glory to Him. (Far is He) from having
partners they associate (with Him)". (The Holy Quran, Surah
9. "Repentance", verse 31)
Today we see that the rulers of the Peninsula have replaced
the way of Islam with secularism. This in itself is apostasy
and kufr (that places you) outside the faith. The Almighty
said: "If anyone desires a religion other than Islam, never
will it be accepted of him; and in the Hereafter he will be
among the ranks of those who have lost (all spiritual
good)". (The Holy Quran, Surah 3. "The Family Of 'Imran",
The rulers of the Peninsula are infidels by their
recognition, and adherence to the resolutions of the United
Nations as an authority to which to appeal, and work
according to its charters and man-made laws, in violation of
all that Allah has ordained. The United Nations system is
based upon the abrogation of Islamic law and nullifying the
boundaries which preserve life and is established upon laws
from the waste of human ideas.
Recognition of the resolutions of the United Nations is
stipulated in their constitutions and enforced in reality or
else their countries would not have been recognized by the
Moreover, what makes the rulers of the Peninsula kaffir is
that they have allied themselves with Jews and Christian
rather than the Believers, they have disclaimed association
with the Believers and supported the kuffar against the
Mujahideen. The Almighty said: "Let not the believers take
for friends or helpers unbelievers rather than believers: if
any do that, in nothing will there be help from Allah,
Except by way of precaution, that ye may guard yourselves
from them. But Allah cautions you (to remember Himself); for
the final goal is to Allah". (The Holy Quran, Surah 3. "The
Family Of 'Imran", verse 28)
In his tafseer of the Almighty's words, "In nothing will
there be help from Allah", the Sheikh of the interpreters,
Muhammad bin Jarir al-Tabari said: "This means that he who
has abandoned Allah, Allah has abandoned him, because of his
apostasy and his entry into kufr." His words, may Allah have
mercy on him, end here.
The Almighty said: "If only they had believed in Allah, in
the Messenger, and in what hath been revealed to him, never
would they have taken them for friends and protectors, but
most of them are rebellious wrongdoers". (The Holy Quran,
Surah 5. "The Table Spread", verse 81)
And the Almighty said: "O ye who believe, take not the Jews
and Christians for your friends and protectors. They are but
friends and protectors to each other. And he amongst you
that turns to them (for friendship) is of them. Verily Allah
guideth not a people unjust". (The Holy Quran, Surah 5. "The
Table Spread", verse 51)
When we approach the truth of the rulers of the Peninsula
from the perspective of al-Wala' wal-Bara', we find that Ali
Abdullah Saleh has cooperated with the Americans in killing
Sheikh Abi Ali al-Harethi and his companions in support of
(the Americans). We find that the record of the House of
Saud in waging war against Islam and working with its
enemies is a long record, and no sane person would doubt
that its relationship with America is one of servitude and
clientage. The House of Saud supported the atheist socialist
regime in south Yemen during the summer war of 1994 with
over 300 million dollars! They supported the Christians of
south Sudan and they delivered back to the socialist rulers
of their countries, many preachers who had fled from the
tyrants of their homeland and sought refuge in the holy
precinct. They opened their airports to the Americans to
strike the Muslim people of Iraq. All of this is evidence of
their friendship and support to the enemies of Religion. And
they continue to ally with them and provide them with oil
In addition to the above, the rulers of the Peninsula had
all previously signed an alliance with the Americans against
the Mujahideen, the so-called war on terrorism. This in and
of itself is loyalty to the Crusaders and enmity to the
Muslims. The rulers of the Peninsula are kaffir because they
opened offices for spying on the Mujahideen, indeed on the
Muslims in general. This is real assistance for the benefit
of the Zionist-Crusader campaign and the ruler of Yemen has
openly acknowledged the presence of FBI and CIA offices in
Sanaa and Aden.
These offices are also present in the Emirates and Qatar. In
most places they are to be found at the site of the American
embassies located throughout the Arabian Peninsula and they
have rendered great service (to the Americans).
It was through one of these offices that the Emirates handed
over the Mujahid Abdul Raheem al-Nashiri, and others of the
Mujahideen. The rulers of the Arabian Peninsula are kaffir
because of their propagation of infidel beliefs. They have
opened the field to the secularists and the polytheists,
such as the polytheist and esoteric Qarmathianism and
This is in plain view! The esoteric rituals being observed
in Yemen by those who worship other than Allah are under the
protection of Ali Abdullah Saleh and this is occurring not
far from us. Among the examples of propagating polytheistic
beliefs is the permission given by the House of Saud for
idolatrous rafidites to practice their polytheist rites in
al-Baqi', Mecca and al-Shaqiyah.
This is also the case in Bahrain and Kuwait. They are kaffir
because of the assistance and protection they provide to the
American combatants deployed on the coasts, shores and
islands of the Red Sea and Arabian Sea, supplying them with
all necessary supplies of fuel and food, and their opening
of military bases and camps for the Crusaders across the
lands and islands of the Arabian Peninsula.
The presence of the destroyer (USS) Cole in Aden, the
American bases in the Bab al-Mandeb, al-Udayd Base in Qatar,
of the bases of al-Kharj and al-Khobar in land of Haramain,
of the Fifth Fleet in Bahrain, the presence of their bases
in Kuwait, of the French forces in the Emirates and the
British forces in Oman - all of that is evidence of the aid
the rulers of the Peninsula give to infidel warriors.
They are kaffir because of their persistent work with the
secular governments against the establishment of any
caliphate ruled by Islam as they did in Somalia, Iraq and
They are kaffir because of their protection of newspapers
and networks which insult Allah and religion, and mock the
Messenger of the Muslims, prayers and peace upon him and his
household, such as the al-Jumhuriyah newspaper, the official
mouthpiece of Yemen.
None of us will forget the protection the Saudi government
gave to Turki al-Hamed who said: "Allah and Satan are two
sides of the same coin", Allah forbid, and other infidel
acts. And some of their satellite networks air series and
shows which make fun of religion.
They are kaffir because they do not implement Shari'a. The
Almighty said: "If any fail to judge by what Allah hath
revealed, they are unbelievers". (The Holy Quran, Surah 5.
"The Table Spread", verse 44)
The clearest example of this is the presence of commercial
and military courts in every country that falls under their
control. Article 27 of the military courts regulation of the
House of Saud states: "The ruler of the state - the king -
alone has the right to implement, halt or substitute any
When they fight with each other, they appeal to the infidel
international courts, such as the appeal made by Bahrain and
Qatar to the international tribunal during their struggle
over the artificial Sykes-Picot boundaries. Those apostate
agents have among them combined to perpetrate many
nullifications of Islam, such as supporting idolaters,
suspending the law of Allah, and permitting and allowing
(things) according to the opinion of man. They legalized
usury, protecting and creating licenses for it. Their
apostasy is gross and they must be deposed for perpetrating
one violation of Islam, let alone perpetrating many such
The situation into which the rulers of the Peninsula have
fallen is the same situation, without exception, as all the
Arab rulers. For they have become kaffir in the same way the
rulers of the Peninsula have become infidels and may even
surpass them in kufr.
In addition to the kufr and atheism of the rulers of the
Peninsula, they have stormed all the doors of depravity and
their usurious banks thrust up against the minarets of the
Haram Allah. Their dissoluteness is also manifested in the
protection of adultery and alcohol, the licensing of special
places for this, spreading abominable acts in the circles of
Muslim society and opening the Arabian Peninsula to
debauchees from all infidel sects who are forbidden from
even entering it, let alone behave immorally in it!
Dubai is considered a flagrant example of permitting
indecency and immorality, and is a naked mark of disgrace on
the forehead of every Muslim.
This depravity has also (resulted in) the taxes and customs
some of them have imposed, and the permission some of them
have given to build churches and mosques in the Arabian
Peninsula, as is the case in Qatar, and opening the door
wide for the Christianization under the name of charitable
organizations and transforming the land of the unified
Peninsula into petty sects and artificial borders.
Due to this extensive corruption, at which human nature
recoils and by which character is sullied, it is our duty to
combat them. Yet they have gone out to fight us, have raided
our homes, haggled with us to forsake our religion and
supported our enemies against us.
O Muslims, we are fighting in defense of our religion and
you religion, our honor and your honor. If you do not fight
with us, at least do not stand in our way as we fight those
criminal traitors. We fight them in answer to the call by
the Messenger, prayers and peace be upon him: "Whoever
changes his religion, kill him."
On the authority of Ubadah bin al-Samet, may Allah be
pleased with him, he said: "The Messenger of Allah, prayer
and peace be upon him, called us and we pledged allegiance
to him which obligated us not to contest the authority with
his people unless we see obvious infidelity for which we
have evidence from Allah." This is agreed upon (Hadith).
Also in the authenticated book of Ahmed and the Sunnah of
Ibn Abi Asim, (they said do not compete against the rulers)
"so long as they do not order you to (commit) a clear
Also in the narration of Habban Abi al-Nazr and in the Fath
al-Bari of Ibn Hajar, "Not unless there is clear
disobedience against Allah."
Imam al-Nawawi in his explanation of the authenticated book
of Muslim that Qadi Ayyadh said: "The ulema are agreed that
the Imamate cannot be entrusted to a kaffir and if he came
to commit kufr he should be dismissed. It is also so if he
abandoned prayer and supplication for it (the imamate)." His
words end here, may Allah have mercy on him.
Qadi Ayyadh, may Allah have mercy on him, also said: "If he
came to commit kufr, or a change to the Shari'a or an
innovation he loses the authority of the state and obedience
to him is nullified. The Muslims must rise up against him
and remove him and install a just imam if they are able. If
that happens to a certain group they must oust the kaffir,
but they do not have to oust the innovator unless they think
they are capable of that." That is the end of his words, may
Allah have mercy on him.
Imam Ibn Hajar said in al-Fath: "If the Sultan shows clear
infidelity, it is not permissible to obey him in that, but
those who are able must wage jihad against him." That is the
end of his words, may Allah have mercy on him.
O Muslims, this is the judgment of Allah on the rulers of
the Peninsula and those like them. This is the ruling of his
Messenger and the consensus of the ulema. By Allah, we
believe this and we call upon those who doubt this to follow
the truth as shown by the evidence.
O Muslims, the continuation of the traitorous rulers in the
positions of authority (means) the continuation of the siege
on Bayt al-Maqdis and the existence of Israel. If we fought
those rulers for this reason alone it would be legal. How
more so if they are refraining sects opposing the
implementation of shari'a? The noble Companions unanimously
approved fighting refraining sects, and the matter proceeded
so and no one opposed the permissibility of it.
If it was unanimously permissible for a Muslim to defend
himself against a hostile Muslim attacking him, and to fight
back against him, how is it not permissible for us to defend
against and fight the rulers and their supporters when they
are attacking religion and honor, and are loyal to and guard
the Jews and Christians? Even worse they fight those who
fight the Jews and the Christians and throw them in
It is also permissible for us to fight them through the
accompanying ruling of using Muslim prisoners as human
shields, bearing in mind the great difference between the
righteousness of the Muslims and the corruption of the
rulers. If it is permissible by consensus to kill Muslim
prisoners if the infidels are using them as shields, all the
more reason is it permissible to kill corrupt, treacherous
and unjust Arab rulers, because America and Israel use them
as a shield against all who wish to liberate al-Aqsa and to
cleanse the country of the filth of the occupiers. Wake up,
ulema of Islam!
Brave Muslim brother, who is it that stands in your face and
prevents you if you wish to support your brothers in Gaza
and liberate Bait al-Maqdis? Is it Israel or is it the
treacherous Arab regimes?
I leave the answer to you. O proud tribes of Yemen, Hijaz
and Najd: Would you be content to be ruled by Abu Jahl who
fought and wronged the Messenger of Allah, prayer and peace
be upon him?
If the answer is no, how is it that you are content that the
grandsons of Abu Jahl are the rulers of the Peninsula? Rush
to fight them until you reach Palestine, and liberate the
country from occupation and the injustice of the kaffir, and
until Allah's shari'a rules throughout the world.
O Muslims, we must take Divine commandments as a path to
challenge the jahiliyah regimes and eradicate them
completely. We must follow the steps, and take the conquests
and plans of the Beloved, Allah's prayer and peace be upon
him, to destroy the infidel Qureish regime. We must follow
his steps, and seek enlightenment from his light, proceeding
on his path in destroying the rulers of the Peninsula until
Allah alone is worshipped and His law rules. How can we not
destroy these lackey apostate regimes in whose shadow
apostasy has spread, atheism has gone out of control,
depravity has proliferated, and pains and illnesses have
appeared? In their shadow, the dignity of the Muslims has
been trampled upon and their honor violated. We have no
solution for this crisis other than to destroy these
ignorant views and replace them with Islamic shari'a.
This is exactly what the Mujahideen are doing all around the
world. The Mujahideen in Afghanistan have restored, through
the grace of Allah, 70% of their occupied land to the
governance of Islam. This is admitted by the enemy himself.
The people of the Swat Valley, by the blessing of Jihad,
were able to uproot the secular regime from their land and
govern according to shari'a, in response to what the
Almighty said: "The Command rests with none but Allah". (The
Holy Quran, Surah 12. "Yusuf", verse 40)
We beseech the Exalted Lord to keep them steadfast and give
them victory. The enemies of the enforcement of shari'a have
rallied around them from all sides to prevent them from
implementing shari'a. The Mujahideen of the Islamic Emirate
in the Caucasus and the Shabaab al-Mujahideen Movement in
Somalia have been able, through the Grace of Allah, to
implement shari'a in the lands falling under their control.
The Jihadist movements are on the march from all sides,
calling for the application of shari'a and fighting for its
sake. The Mujahideen in the Islamic Maghreb are on the march
to implement shari'a and they will arrive at their goal,
We here in the Arabian Peninsula are undertaking a
missionary, scientific, practical Jihadist movement
according to the way of the Prophet, prayer and peace be
upon him, to eradicate the secular regimes that have existed
in the Peninsula for decades so that shari'a may rule. We
are completely certain of the restoration of divine,
merciful shari'a by which we shall regain all the lands of
the Muslims and cleanse al-Aqsa from the filth of the
occupiers and their helpers. We shall worship only Allah,
Who has no peer. We must understand that the oppression, and
loss of wealth, and rights that have afflicted the Muslims
has been caused by the absence of shari'a and the power of
If we know the cause, then we must be certain of the
solution. The Islamic Ummah is determined to implement
shari'a. We have witnessed this, we have seen this. The
successive victories that we see today are the latest
evidence that the Ummah desires to be ruled by shari'a.
Allah willing, shari'a will rule and prevail over the earth,
and encompass all the land. The people will live under the
rule of Islam, and land will be filled with justice and
tawheed as it was previously filled with oppression and
polytheism. The people strive with all their strength to
liberate themselves from jahiliyah regimes.
They have not been deceived by the lies and empty slogans of
the apostate regimes. The people are increasingly turning
their allegiance to the Mujahideen. The opening of their
cities and their villages, their support and the
multiplication of the Jihadist fronts is all an omen of the
imminence of shari'a rule. The Islamic Ummah is a powerful
nation, rejecting and disdaining humiliation, and struggling
for liberation from the chains of secularism. We will not be
able to rid ourselves of those rulers and apply shari'a
unless we wage jihad fi sabeel Allah together and achieve
tawheed. The Almighty said: "And fight them until there is
no more tumult or oppression and there prevail justice and
faith in Allah altogether and everywhere; but if they cease,
verily Allah doth see all that they do". (The Holy Quran,
Surah 8. "Spoils Of War", verse 39)
We must make clear to the people, the judgment of Allah upon
the rulers of the Peninsula and publish the statements in
this regard: that we disassociate ourselves from the
governments of the rulers of the Peninsula, forsake those
rulers and those who are with them.
This is the creed of forefather Ibrahim, peace be upon him:
sincerity of worship to Allah, disavowal of the polytheists
and their beliefs.
We must disassociate ourselves from any deed that
strengthens their situation, their authority and their
influence in the country and among the worshippers. The
Almighty said: "There is for you an excellent example (to
follow) in Ibrahim and those with him, when they said to
their people: We are clear of you and whatever ye worship
besides Allah: 'we have rejected you, and there has arisen
between us and you enmity and hatred forever - unless ye
believe in Allah and Him alone:' but not when Ibrahim said
to his father: 'I will pray for forgiveness for thee, though
I have no power (to get) aught on thy behalf from Allah.'
(They prayed) 'Our Lord! In Thee do we trust, and to Thee do
we turn in repentance: to Thee is (our) final goal'." (The
Holy Quran, Surah 60. "She That Is To Be Examined", verse
Moreover, in order to rid ourselves of the rule of the
treacherous rulers, we must prepare weapons and force, and
mobilize the Muslims to remove and destroy the rulers of the
Peninsula. The Almighty said:
"Against them make ready your strength to the utmost of your
power, including steeds of war, to strike terror into (the
hearts of) the enemies, of Allah and your enemies, and
others besides, whom ye may not know, but whom Allah doth
know. Whatever ye shall spend in the Cause of Allah, shall
be repaid unto you, and ye shall not be treated
(The Holy Quran, Surah 8. "Spoils Of War", verse 60)
The inability to go forth (on Jihad) does not vindicate
(one) from abandoning whatever preparation is possible. What
is possible should be accomplished regardless of
difficulties. The foundation of this is the Word of the
Almighty: "So fear Allah as much as you can; listen and
obey and spend in charity for the benefit of your own soul
and those saved from the covetousness of their own souls.
-they are the ones that achieve prosperity". (The Holy
Quran, Surah 64. "Mutual Disillusion, Haggling", verse
Preparing (for Jihad) should be spiritual, material,
military - and if you achieve that, the day will come when
you join the ranks of the Mujahideen, and we will all fight
in order to apply the shari'a. The Sultan of the ulema
al-Izz Ibn Abdul Salam said in his book Qawa'id al-Ahkam:
"If someone is assigned to do a pious deed and he is able to
accomplish some of it but unable to perform another part of
it, if he comes with what he can achieve, he is released
from doing what he cannot do."
Among the preparations (for Jihad) is finding money through
legal sources such as booty, zakat, etc... and sending it to
the Mujahideen to facilitate and hasten the fighting to
The speakers, preachers, educators and teachers of Quran
must bring into action their role in instructing and
educating Muslims about shari'a using all means which lead
to the application of shari'a through the mosques, places of
learning and Friday pulpits, (by) giving lectures and
seminars, etc... Every Muslim must make the truth of the
Mujahideen known, the people of al Sunna wal-Jama'a,
fighting to implement shari'a, and respond to the Western
media and whoever follows its procedure in defaming the
Mujahideen by distributing all of their video, audio and
written publications in the community and popular circles,
along with expanding the circle of those who support
application of shari'a and vow to achieve this.
Here the role of ulema, preachers and teachers becomes
prominent in calling upon the prominent men, the students of
knowledge and general public among the Muslims to implement
shari'a. The continuous call for application of shari'a is a
vital duty which you, the scholars, must perform. It is a
duty required by our times. If Allah asks you what efforts
you made leading to the application of shari'a and you
excuse yourself from fighting to applying shari'a using
mainly weak excuses, what will be your excuse to Allah for
your tardiness in preaching to the people, educating the
youth and preparing them to restore the rule of shari'a on
the earth? In the end, there must be a general outcry in all
assemblies, and social and religious occasions for applying
shari'a just as we call for observing prayers, and
undertaking zakat and fasting. Allah permitting, we will
implement shari'a just as it was implemented by the first
troop (of Muslims).
The Islamic armies are marching against the lairs of the
infidel and apostate regimes. But victory is patience of an
hour. It seems to me that the Muslim countries will be
governed by shari'a and tomorrow is not too long to
O Allah, aid Islam and the Muslims and destroy Your enemies,
the enemies of Religion!
O Allah, allow Your Book and the Sunnah of your Prophet to
O Allah, accept our martyrs, free our prisoners and give us
victory over our enemy!
Our final prayer is that all praise is for Allah, the Lord
of all that exists.
