Protestors of Honor

Since 2012-11-13

Since the end of the year 2010 A.D, there are many events that attracted the attention of the audio, visual and written media. Rather, they are more powerful and greater than earthquakes, hurricanes and volcanoes.

 

In the name of Allah, all perfect praise is due to Allah The Almighty. May peace and blessings of Allah be upon His Messenger, all of his family, companions and those who supported him.
 
To proceed:
 
Protestors of Honor
 
O dear Muslims!
Since the end of the year 2010 A.D, there are many events that attracted the attention of the audio, visual and written media. Rather, they are more powerful and greater than earthquakes, hurricanes and volcanoes.
 
They will refashion and reshape the whole world in a new different way. They are the revolutions and protests that erupted in the region of the Arab countries (and they are still erupting).
 
They are very similar to the flash floods that destroy systems, tyrants, rulers, and oppressors. They will, furthermore, reshape the balances, social, political, economical, local, national and international visions and the like.
 
The dictatorial system has been destroyed and the oppressive ruler in Tunisia was ousted: Zine El ‘Abideen Ben Ali. Then it was followed by the awful fall and overthrow of the tyrant; Hosni Mubarak, the pharaoh of the modern age. The same also happened with the deposed leader, Mu‘ammar Al-Qadhafi and his mercenaries.
 
The revolting train is still running in a powerful and forceful motion, hitting the foundations of oppression, suppression, deprivation, corruption and tyranny.
 
It is the spark that flew out from the body of Muhammad Bouazizi to start the fire of the revolution, uprising and mottos in the region as a whole.
 
No one could have imagined that it will start in the surprising and great current state. All perfect praise is due to Allah The Almighty, the fence of fear from the dictatorial systems has been demolished. The scenes of killed and injured people, blood, demonstrations, and marches became more familiar than the scenes of welcoming, biding farewells, conferences, statements, and more common than the decisions of denunciations and condemnations at the actions of the tyrant Zionist entity.
 
Nowadays, Zionists, and also all other tyrants in the region and the like, quake with fear. They began to rearrange, reorganize everything, make new preparations, and form new perspectives.
 
However, we are as Muslims wondering what are the reasons behind the eruption of the Arab volcano in this horrible way?
 
Simply, it is the oppression, suppression, accumulative corruption over a long period of black decades. Even, chairs have got fed up of the tyrants while they never got fed up of them for they have a strong desire to oppression, tyranny, arrogance and sucking the blood of people.
 
If it was said to any one of those tyrants take whatever amount of money, palaces, cars, planes, assets, and choose whatever of servants no matter of their number, and marry the most beautiful ladies, but step down and go to a distant island away from the noise of such live, political turmoil, problems, he will surely reject that (as the all tyrants who were deposed in Tunisia, Egypt, Libya and like have done). That is mainly because that he has a burning desire to enslavement and suppression of people, and that actually will not be realized in the distant beautiful calm island.
 
The truthful Muslim hates to be in authority or assume emirate for it implies heavy responsibilities and burdens and that one will surely be held accountable for everything of it. So if he did well in it, he will be the first of those whom will be shaded under the Shade of the Throne of Allah The Almighty, The Exalted on the Day when there will be no shade except His Shade, but if he did wrong, he will receive the severest punishment on the Day of Resurrection.
 
Important rulings, benefits, and lessons from the Tunisian revolution
 
Firstly, oppression and darkness, no matter how long they last, will inevitably be destroyed and morning of justice will inevitably emerge. Allah The Almighty says in a Qudsi Hadeeth: “O My servants! I have prohibited injustice for Myself, and made it prohibited among you. Therefore, do not commit injustice against each other.” [Reported by Muslim]
 
«يا عبادي: إني حرمت الظلم على نفسي وجعلته بينكم محرما فلا تظلموا» رواه مسلم
 
And He The Exalted also says: {And that when you judge between men, you judge with justice. Verily, how excellent is the teaching which He (Allah) gives you!} [An-Nisaa’ 4: 58]
 
{وَإِذَا حَكَمْتُم بَيْنَ النَّاسِ أَن تَحْكُمُوا بِالْعَدْلِ ۚ إِنَّ اللَّـهَ نِعِمَّا يَعِظُكُم بِهِ} النساء: 58
 
Transliteration: Wa `itha hakamtum bayna annasi an tahkumoo bil’adli inna Allaha ni’imma ya’ithukum bihi.
 
Secondly, some of the writers, supporters, and protestors repeatedly reported some verses of the Tunisian poet Abi Al-Qasim Ash-Shaabi:
 
إذا الشعب يوماً أراد الحياة *** فلابد أن يستجيب القدر
ولابد لليل أن ينجلي *** ولابد للقيد أن ينكسر
 
Translation:
When the people decide to live, destiny must surely respond
Darkness will disappear, chains will certainly break!
 
Transliteration:
Idha-sh-sha‘bu yawman ‘arad al-haya
Fala budda ‘an yastajib al-qadar
Wala budda li-l-layli an yanjali
Wa la budda li-l-qaydi an yankasir
 
The first verse implies a violation of the religious rulings and goes against Islamic Sharee’ah. That is in the phrase: Destiny must surely respond. Destiny which is the preordainment of Allah The Almighty of any matter. It precedes the Decree of Allah The Almighty which He The Exalted make it happen on the hands of His worshipers. Also, Destiny is based totally on the Will and knowledge of Allah The Almighty and the will of humans and their desires have nothing to do with it at all.
 
Such phrase should be corrected in the following way:
When the people decide to live, then this should agree with destiny.
And Allah The Almighty knows best.
 
Thirdly, the action done by Muhammad Bouazizi:
It is a forbidden matter, even if it is a way of protesting oppression and tyranny. It is a kind of committing suicide according to Sharee‘ah terminology. It was narrated that the Messenger of Allah, prayers and peace of Allah be upon him, said: “Whoever purposely throws himself from a mountain and kills himself, will be in the Hellfire falling down into it and abiding therein perpetually forever; and whoever drinks poison and kills himself with it, he will be carrying his poison in his hand and drinking it in the Hellfire wherein he will abide eternally forever; and whoever kills himself with an iron weapon, will be carrying that weapon in his hand and stabbing his abdomen with it in the Hellfire wherein he will abide eternally forever.” [Reported by Al-Bukhari]
 
«من تردّى من جبلٍ فقتل نفسَه، فهو في نارِ جهنمَ يتردّى فيه خالدًا مخلدًا فيها أبدًا، ومن تحسى سمًا فقتل نفسَه، فسمُّه في يدِه يتحساه في نارِ جهنمَ خالدًا مخلدًا فيها أبدًا، ومن قتل نفسَه بحديدةٍ، فحديدتُه في يدِه يجأُ بها في بطنِه في نارِ جهنمَ خالدًا مخلدًا فيها أبدًا» رواه البخاري
 
Even if such prohibited matter leads to something religiously or worldly good. This cannot in any way make committing suicide permissible.
 
Committing suicide is a western tradition. It is unfamiliar and known for Muslims and believers who believe in Allah The Almighty and that He The Exalted is over all things competent, and those who despair not of relief from Allah The Almighty.
 
Such heinous tradition is only common among non-Muslims who do not believe in the Day of Reckoning.
 
******
 
Mass media has broadcasted numerous news about some individuals who repeated the same action (of Bouazizi). Therefore, many Muslims, due to repeating such suicide actions many times, accept such matter in somehow. This is really a very dangerous matter. So we have to beware and be careful of that.
 
An advice to our fellow Muslims in Tunisia, Egypt and all over the world:
 
Dear beloved brothers!
Getting rid of the abject and grinding poverty, oppression, tyranny and suppression should be by referring to the rulings of Allah The Almighty which were outlined in the Noble Book and the honorable authentic Sunnah. Solving such problems cannot be done by just changing some individuals, figures, replacing a man-made system with another man-made system. Democracy that many of the protestors, revolutionists, and angry people call for and stick to it, is not at all the proper substitute that can achieve justice, equity, safety, security, and distributing the wealth of the county in a just and proper way. In fact, it (democracy) is like the other man-made systems (that we have experienced before) such as nationalism, capitalism, communism, Ba’thism, liberalism, secularism and the like.
 
The correct and proper way to reach and realize the desired aims and expected hopes can only be done by applying the religion of Allah The Almighty and acknowledging the pure belief of monotheism of Allah The Almighty (worshiping Allah The Almighty without any partner or associate). Therefore, Allah The Almighty has guided His Prophet Muhammad, prayers and peace of Allah be upon him, to such path (i.e. the path of monotheism). So the Prophet, prayers and peace of Allah be upon him, dedicated all of his efforts and times, and spent thirteen years (it is the Makkan period) out of twenty three years of his prophet hood only for the belief of (laa ‘ilaaha illAllah, Muhammadan Rasool-ul-Allah. (i.e. There is no God except Allah and that Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah.)
 
As we believe firmly that the Order of Allah The Almighty is the most correct, appropriate, the best guidance and the most perfect order, and that Allah The Almighty has ordered His Prophet, prayers and peace of Allah be upon him, with adopting such path i.e. the path of monotheism, then we all have to know that any other things that goes against it is just the misguiding and wrong path which will never make any one, especially, Muslim individual, realize happiness or good.
 
Any other way than what Allah The Almighty has outlined, will never put an end to the hardships of Muslims such as oppression, suppression, tyranny, poverty, and deprivation. If people seek another solution other than that, then they really will get nothing but more hardships, humiliation, misery, and disgrace.
 
I have conveyed and Allah The Almighty will be my witness!
 
We ask Allah The Almighty earnestly to guide us and all Muslims to the sound proper path. Verily, He The Exalted is the One Who is Able to do all that.
 
May Allah reward you the best and peace and mercy of Allah be upon you.
