Lebanon Burns…

The following is translation from the Arabic of a leaflet that was circulated in the Muslim world by the workers for Khilafah, with some slight ammendment:

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

Lebanon Burns…
And the Muslim Rulers see its burning as a heating stove, happy that it is alight!

O Muslims,

Enough is enough! There is no excuse here for the one seeking an excuse, nor any justification for the one seeking to justify. He who turns a blind eye to the treachery and betrayal of Palestine and Lebanon by the (Muslim) rulers is in reality one of them. He who does not expend his effort in mobilising the armies and removing the barriers placed in front of these armies by the rulers, his is a portion of their betrayal.

He who does the above indeed supports the debasing of the Ummah at the hands of these rulers who have their hands on its neck, whilst at the same time they support and protect its enemies, and participate in its slaughter day and night! He also indeed assists in the degrading of the armies by these rulers who sit on their thrones, safe and secure, using the armies to prop up their decisions and maintain their oppression, whilst at the same time they protect the borders of the enemy, establishing its presence.

The soldiers are you sons, O Muslims, and it is obligatory that you urge them resolutely to change the munkar of the rulers and to move in support of Palestine and Lebanon, and the rest of the Muslim Lands.

O Muslims,

You see and you hear the massacres of the Israelis against the civilians: women, children and the elderly, and you see and hear their savage crimes that have reached the general organisations, the infrastructure, the trees and the mountains. With this, you have also seen the evil stance of the rulers; the best of them take a neutral stance and call to peace! Similarly you have seen and heard the result of the meeting of their ministers, then you saw and heard their announcements on the television screens where instead of being ashamed in front of Allah and the servants of Allah, they justified the aggression of the Israelis, and referred to the resistance as frivolous and foolhardy. Do not these rulers deserve to be flung away as the date seed is flung? Nay, they are even lower than that!

O Muslims,

The Israeli state, in spite of all its weaponry and military might, is like a glasshouse about to fall. If it were not for the protection its gets from its surrounding states, it would be gone without a trace. For strength is not in weapons alone, but in the men who carry them. As for the Jews, humiliation and misery has covered them, and they drew upon themselves the wrath of Allah. Every time they ignite the flames of war, Allah extinguishes them. Says He, the Exalted,

وَإِن يُقَاتِلُوكُمْ يُوَلُّوكُمُ الأَدُبَارَ ثُمَّ لاَ يُنصَرُونَ
“If they come out to fight you, they will show you their backs, and no help shall they get.” (al-Imrān: 111).
The examples of this are observable. What is happening in Lebanon too speaks of this. The resistance is small in numbers and weapons when compared to that which Israel owns and to the supports it receives from the colonialist kafir states, with America at their head. When considered in material terms, the resistance would appear extremely limited, yet it has reached the depths of Israel, afflicting the Israeli State with a vertigo, causing a loss of all ability to think. So how would it be if this resistance were supported by the Muslim armies; nay even only by the neighbouring armies?

O Muslims,

The continuation of the resistance is from the signs of victory, and victory is only with patience and perseverance. Even though the crimes of the Israelis, which have resulted in destruction, massacres and wholesale wreckage, give us pain and suffering, the fighting also confers upon the enemy pain and suffering. Yet the Muslim looks forth to one of the two good outcomes (victory or Jannah), whilst the enemy looks forth to nothing except one of the two evil outcomes (loss or Jahannam). Allah the Exalted says,

وَلاَ تَهِنُواْ فِي ابْتِغَاء الْقَوْمِ إِن تَكُونُواْ تَأْلَمُونَ فَإِنَّهُمْ يَأْلَمُونَ كَمَا تَأْلَمونَ وَتَرْجُونَ مِنَ اللّهِ مَا لاَ يَرْجُونَ وَكَانَ اللّهُ عَلِيماً حَكِيماً
“Relent not in pursuit of the enemy: if ye are suffering, lo! they suffer even as you suffer and you hope from Allah that for which they cannot hope. Allah is Knowing, Wise.” (al-Nisā: 104)
Just as the continuation of the fighting is from the signs of victory, the stopping of the fighting on the condition of the enemy is the loss of victory. It is indeed better, a thousand times, for the pure blood which is split that pure white pages of martyrdom and courage are written from it, and it is indeed worse, a thousand times, if black pages of negotiations and surrender are written from it.

The movement of the United Nations, the European Union and the G-8 Nations is now (finally) visible on the horizon, and all their initiatives call, openly and loudly, to ways wherein lie the benefits of the enemy, and to solutions which involve the wasteful spilling of the blood of the Muslims. The talks about these solutions have moved from being secretive and allusive to being open and clear, lead by the colonialist kafir states, with America at their head, and supported and applauded by the agents of these colonialist states and their associates and followers.

The ‘asl is that these delegates, who come with the conditions of the Israelis, not be received, and that they be expelled with the worst of expulsions, for they are selling the solutions which benefit (only) the Israelis, and they want treacherous humiliating solutions, and the Muslim does not accept humiliation. Nay, he is honoured by his deen, strengthened by his Lord; the Exalted says,

وَلِلَّهِ الْعِزَّةُ وَلِرَسُولِهِ وَلِلْمُؤْمِنِينَ وَلَكِنَّ الْمُنَافِقِينَ لَا يَعْلَمُونَ
“But honour belongs to Allah and His Messenger, and to the Believers; but the hypocrites know not.” (al-Munāfiqūn: 8)

O Muslims,

We call out to every possessor of strength in the Muslim armies to move with his strength to the battlefield, destroying the barriers placed in front of him by the rulers, and moving forth in his jihad and courage. As for him who is content with their oppression and holds back, and bargains with them and gives up, then his strength will take him to humiliation in this world and an awful disgracing torment in the hereafter.

إِلاَّ تَنفِرُواْ يُعَذِّبْكُمْ عَذَاباً أَلِيماً وَيَسْتَبْدِلْ قَوْماً غَيْرَكُمْ وَلاَ تَضُرُّوهُ شَيْئاً وَاللّهُ عَلَى كُلِّ شَيْءٍ قَدِيرٌ
“If you do not go forth, he will punish you with a severe punishment, and will bring in your place a people other than you, and you will not harm Him in the least; and Allah is over all things powerful.” (al-Tawbah: 39)

Quite interesting, good that among muslims are people who are doing such analysis.
