Salman Rushdie (may Allah’s curse be upon him) was recently given the status of knighthood by “Queen” Elizabeth. Now we, the Muslims who worship and obey Allah, don’t care about such statuses as they are all meaningless in the eyes of the Creator. But what we do care about is that this status was given to a certain person that is only and only known for one thing: showing open enmity and hatred towards Allah and His Messenger (sallallahu ‘alayhi wassallam). Therefore the Muslim Ummah has every right to become angry with such an event.
However, what the Muslims might overlook from this event is the fact that they fell into a humiliating trap by the British Government. And they might also overlook the fact that they totally ignored how to never fall into that trap again and how to avoid such carefully planned tactics. Just the fact that the British Government is fighting the Muslims in both word and deed that want the Shari’ah is more than enough proof that this Government will do whatever it takes to make the Muslims pledge their allegiance to them instead of the so-called “terrorists.” But this time the Government either slipped (i.e., in other words, their action just proved to us their great hatred and war against Islam) or it planned this on purpose for whatever reason dealing with its war on Islam.
We say to all the Muslims, especially those living in Britain: Openly show and proclaim your allegiance to Allah, His Messenger, and the Mujaahideen and openly show and proclaim your disavowal with the Government, its leaders, and the disbelievers. Why? So that you don’t fall into their trap again of being humiliated.
How would that solve the problem?
Once it is clear to them and the society where your allegiance and disavowal belongs to, then no matter what act they do for the purpose of implying that, “Islam is not against this,” they will fail miserably since the people would know very well that the Muslims are against it. Showing open allegiance to the Mujaahideen may be tough, but it will no longer deceive the public (and the ignorant Muslims) on what Islam truly supports. On a side note, do not portray your movement, organization or Masjid as a supporter of such and such (i.e., related to Jihad), rather portray yourselves as Muslims who believe in Allah that are commanded in the Qur’an and the Sunnah to support the Jihad. Why? Because often we see people like Hamza Useless and other so-called moderates “debunk” the Jihadi support as something that has no textual validity or “support from Islam.” In other words, you have to make it clear to the society that Islam created the concept of the Mujaahideen and it obviously supports it.
There’s a lot more to just showing open hatred and enmity to Salman Rushdie; he’s not the only object that we are supposed to be showing open disavowal for. This same hatred and enmity is also supposed to be against the Governments, their policies, their laws, the Mushrikeen and their Shirk, and Kufr. All of this must be proclaimed as something that Islam is against (and not simply your movement). Keep in mind, all of this shouldn’t be done to gain the sympathy of the majority or silent majority or anyone as a matter of fact. Rather, this should only be done because it is the Millah that has been prescribed to us by Allah; and what we have just explained to you is the Millah of Ibraaheem (’alayhis salaam).
Once the Government realizes what you are doing, then it will be the time where your individual faith (as a Muslim) will be tested severely as it will determine whether you are with the Kaafir Government or with the Mujaahideen; if that time doesn’t come today, then it will come tomorrow if Allah wills. If you pledge to be with the believers, then prepare for jail.
Now we can finally ask the question: Are you ready to be jailed for what you believe in?
Preparation starts now, and not tomorrow when it happens.
