On 11/10/2016, last month, Ghoutah witnessed a terrible crime which was extremely cowardly and vile, against the carriers of the Da’wah calling to the implementation of the Shar’a of Allah and remaining form upon the Haqq (truth). This was manifested in the abduction of the thinker and politician Al-Hajj Abu Maalik, a member of Hizb ut Tahrir in the Wilayah of Syria, who had not been dissuaded previously, when he was detained by the tyrant of Shaam before the revolution, from continuing to procced towards his objective of resuming the Islamic way of life to please Allah ‘Azza Wa Jalla. However, his perseverance upon the Haqq (truth) and his proclaiming of the word of Haqq disturbed the sleep of his abductors and shook their tyranny, which drove them to perpetrate their crime, believing that through this action, they could extinguish the light of Allah and silence the voice of truth, in an effort to please their masters.
The heads of the armed groups who have control over Ghoutah and claim to be protecting it, bear the responsibility of this heinous crime. That is because they have been asked to pursue his abductors and prevent the repetition of these despicable crimes. Otherwise, they do not deserve to be in the position of responsibility in respect to providing security and protection to the people and they should leave this responsibility to those who deserve it, from amongst the noble and honourable people of Ash-Shaam who do not fear the blame of the blamers in Allah’s way.
The hope, and all hope, rests in our people in East Ghouta, those who mobilised against the corrupt situation that brought difficulties to the land, delayed the victory and made their suffering go on for longer, that they now mobilise again to prevent the current oppression and to take the oppressors to task to purify the revolution from them. And their mobilisation and protests needs to be productive with a clearly defined objective that everyone adopts. That means making Ash-Shaam the support point for the Ummah’s project of the rightly guided Khilafah state upon the methodology of the Prophethood. And it means that these protests must be based upon the level of awareness that makes the people of Ghoutah not accept any patchwork and distractive solutions. It was related from ‘Ubaadah Bin Saamit (ra) that he said: «بَايَعْنَا رَسُولَ اللَّهِ عَلَى السَّمْعِ وَالطَّاعَةِ فِي الْمَنْشَطِ وَالْمَكْرَهِ، وَأَنْ لَا نُنَازِعَ الْأَمْرَ أَهْلَهُ، وَأَنْ نَقُومَ أَوْ نَقُولَ بِالْحَقِّ حَيْثُمَا كُنَّا، لَا نَخَافُ فِي اللَّهِ لَوْمَةَ لَائِمٍ» “We gave our pledge of allegiance (Bai’ah) to the Messenger of Allah upon hearing and obeying, in what we like and what we dislike, and that we would not dispute the affair (authority) of its people, and that we would stand up for or say the truth whitherever we were, not fearing in Allah’s way, the blame of the blamer” (Related by Al-Bukhaari).
