After completing the fast in the month of Ramadhan and having entered into the day of celebrating the Eid ul-Fitr, we have no option but to remember our brothers and sisters who are in dreadful situations. Situations which are not endured by animals, trees and even stones let alone faced by human beings. This state of affairs has become normal to our brothers and sisters in Palestine, Syria, Iraq, Yemen and other Muslim regions. The hands of the Capitalist enemy who views the world as his farm to exploit as he wills - America, are perpetuating such atrocities facing the Muslim Ummah. On the other hand there are rulers, army commanders, politicians and even Muslim religious leaders in the Muslim countries that help the Kuffar in achieving their interests even if it will lead to the spilling of the sacred blood of the Muslims hoping to secure something out of the leftovers to fill their stomach and that of their close allies!
As for the situation in Kenya, the month of Ramadhan has come and left while still the situation of the Muslims is deplorable without their protector and speaker of their grievances. There are those missing their loved ones not knowing where they are or even knowing where to direct their complaints as to their whereabouts. It has become an open secret that the security apparatus in the country is the one involved in arresting hundreds of youths and making them disappear as was reported by the human rights organizations. This is a global agenda championed by America using its ‘friends’ in the third world countries including Kenya in dishonoring their Muslim citizens to meet their interests. Also our third world countries use the so-called Muslim leaders including politicians, security officers and especially religious leaders in approving such carnage. These so-called leaders sell their Hereafter for the sake of meager world interests! We are reminding them that whoever sides with injustice should know that the same will face him here on earth and in the Hereafter it will be a painful account from Allah Almighty.
A good example is the recent event of the arrest of the MPs from the two coalitions–the government and opposition—famously known ‘Pangani Six’ who were detained without charge. The legislative weapon of the Anti-Terror Laws that the Parliament passed at the behest of America to stem the tide of growth of the call to Islam was used to detain eight Members of Parliament without charge under the same infamous Anti-Terror Laws they passed in servitude to America in her global War on Islam. These MPs believed they were safe from the consequences of their actions by siding with the Oppressors but Allah (swt) says:
﴿وَسَكَنتُمْ فِي مَسَاكِنِ الَّذِينَ ظَلَمُوا أَنفُسَهُمْ وَتَبَيَّنَ لَكُمْ كَيْفَ فَعَلْنَا بِهِمْ وَضَرَبْنَا لَكُمُ الْأَمْثَالَ﴾
“And you lived among the dwellings of those who wronged themselves, and it had become clear to you how We dealt with them. And We presented for you [many] examples.” [Surah Ibrahim 14:45]
As for the false notion of safety though taking oppressors as allies, Allah (swt) reveals:
﴿يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا لَا تَتَّخِذُوا آبَاءَكُمْ وَإِخْوَانَكُمْ أَوْلِيَاءَ إِنِ اسْتَحَبُّوا الْكُفْرَ عَلَى الْإِيمَانِ ۚ وَمَن يَتَوَلَّهُم مِّنكُمْ فَأُولَٰئِكَ هُمُ الظَّالِمُونَ﴾
“O you who have believed! Do not take your fathers or your brothers as allies if they have preferred disbelief over belief. And whoever does so among you - then it is those who are the wrongdoers.” [Surah At-Taubah 9:23]
The very oppressive constitution and laws they swore by their Lord to uphold and implement upon an ignorant and helpless humanity has become the source of their own humiliation and oppression. The very pre-trial detention laws upon which they stood with the oppressor of humanity America and her allies to wield against Muslims were wielded against them, and this will continue for all their other conspiracies against the Noble Deen of Islam and its honourable Ummah. They will not be exempt from the arbitrary round-ups to fill the prison that will be built for “Extremists” (read Muslims). Let those who have eyes see and let those who have a mind reflect on the words of our Creator, Allah (swt) when He says,
﴿وَمَن لَّمْ يَحْكُم بِمَا أنزَلَ اللّهُ فَأُوْلَـئِكَ هُمُ الظَّالِمُونَ﴾
“And whosoever does not judge by what Allah has revealed, such are the dhaalimun (unjust, oppressors).” [TMQ 5:45].
We call upon the معاون لظالمين Assistants and Collaborators of the Oppressors, the men who have assigned themselves the attributes of Allah The All Mighty and Majestic in word and in deed by calling themselves “Legislators”, the men who serve as Voices of the Oppressors (the Journalists, Government Spokesmen, and Intellectuals), the men who serve as Hands of the Oppressors (Soldiers, Governors, Ministers, Advisers), the men who serve as the Eyes of the Oppressors (Intelligence, Spies, Agents, Reporters) to all turn away from supporting and accompanying the Oppressors, as Allah (swt) warns:
﴿وَلَا تَرْكَنُوا إِلَى الَّذِينَ ظَلَمُوا فَتَمَسَّكُمُ النَّارُ وَمَا لَكُم مِّن دُونِ اللَّهِ مِنْ أَوْلِيَاءَ ثُمَّ لَا تُنصَرُونَ﴾
“And do not incline toward nor support or accompany the oppressor, or Hell-Fire will seize you, and you would not have other than Allah any protectors; then you would not be helped.” [Al-Hud 11:113]
...A path that leads only to humiliation on earth as Senator Billow Kerrow, Senator Ali Bule and now Junet Muhammad will attest to after their bouts of arrest and detention, with the potential to meet an end like that of Qaddafi and Saddam Hussein and their families even after years of service to Nidham ul-KUFR, then ultimately suffering eternal punishment from the One (swt) who gave them life.
We call them back to stand with the justice of Islam, to work with this honourable Ummah to deliver the intellectual, social, economic, political and spiritual Guidance of Allah (swt) and the Sunnah of Ar-Rasul (saw) that is manifest in the Noble Deen of Islam to all of mankind, liberating humanity and the earth from the destructive clutch of those who have rebelled against their Lord. On the authority of Ibn Umar: Prophet Muhammad (saw) said:«مَنْ أَعَانَ عَلَى خُصُومَةٍ بِظُلْمٍ - أَوْ يُعِينُ عَلَى ظُلْمٍ - لَمْ يَزَلْ فِي سَخَطِ اللَّهِ حَتَّى يَنْزِعَ» “Whoever assists, in any dispute, in oppression or collaborates with the oppressor he will continue with the anger of Allah until he perishes (dies).” [reported by Ibn Majah in his book of Al-Ahkam]
Finally there is no ideology that can stand up against the monstrosities committed by the capitalist ideology led by America except the Islamic ideology; this pure ideology which when executed by the Khilafah (Caliphate) based on the Prophethood will liberate not only the Muslims but also non-Muslims from the shackles of inhumanity that has never being witnessed in the human history. All this require concerted efforts to stand up and refute the capitalist ideology non-stop without fear. Hizb ut Tahrir globally is openly standing up and rejecting the capitalist ideology without fearing the blame from those the blamers or cowering from those who spread fear. This is the defining test for everyone who hopes for real and fundamental change to remove these injustices.
We end by praying to Allah Subhannahu wa Taala to accept our acts of fasting and saying salat at night (Qiyam) and to wish all Muslims a prosperous and happy Eid. Wa Kullu ‘Aam Wa Antum Bi Kheir!
