UPDATE 4/20 10:25 AM: Here is an English translation of the below statement:
It is wajib for the Muslims to sharpen their vigilance and take precautions against their enemies, and the Muslims should always remember that their enemies always stay up to plan and plot against the Muslim. Therefore the Muslims must be constantly vigilant so they can know, where does the enmity originate from and how does the hatred amongst them become ignited???…
Indeed, the presence of the munafiqs in the Islamic community is a latent danger that is big, however even more dangerous than that is the presence of the believers who always accept the dictates from the munafiqs, they also want to listen to the gossips of the munafiqs, in fact even tailing behind the opinions and behaviours of the munafiqs, without heeding its impacts on the Muslims.
The Qur’an has recorded for us some disasters that befell the Muslims, caused by some Muslims who had tailed behind (followed) the munafiqs, the spiteful, so that we can reap the hikmah (wisdom) from the experience of those who came before us.
O spreaders hoax…! O swallowers of fitnah…! O people who do not like to see two people who love each other except they must endeavour to separate them …! O people who want to denounce the people who are not entitled to be denounced..! Restrain your speech…! For surely you will be prompted accountability for your every word.
Allah Ta’ala says :
Meaning : “Man does not utter any word except that with him is an observer (angel) prepared [to record].” [Qaaf : 18]
Be careful with the words of deceit, spreading false issues, accusing the Muslims without proof, being prejudiced against Muslims…!!!
Understanding The Bombing Inside A Masjid
It is indeed surprising, a “suicide bomb” (read: shaheed bomb) exploded in a masjid. Curses then flowed freely from various parties, not least from the Muslims themselves.. either they were ever committed to fight this country, or not…
Denunciation of this young man keeps coming insistently when his janaza was not even buried yet… is it true that what was done by this youth is wrong? Allow me to explore a little how to interpret this case from my point of view…
The target of this youth is clear, namely those of the infidels (kafir) from the ranks of the Police of Cirebon, why are the police called kafir…? whereas those policemen do perform solat…? Remember, that the status of those policemen is Ansar Thaghut, i.e. the helpers of the Thaghutso that Islam is not established in this country… they hindered the Muslims, making it difficult for the Muslims, plotting against them and submitting to the Jews by being friends with America, namely the country that kills the most Muslims… then can we say that the police are Muslim…???? If there is anyone who says that hujjah have not been imposed on the police that they do not realize their actions and thus cannot be said as kafir just like that… Remember…!!! They do not know the rulings of committing the sin, or they don’t want to know…??? Example, if there is someone who commits zina in this country, but he reasoned that he did not know that the act of zina is forbidden in the Qur’an, can his testimony be accepted…? Of course not… because he does not want to know,,, not making use of the vision and hearing given to him by Allah… the same goes with the police… they are kafir because of their job of fighting the Muslims…
Based on the testimony obtained, of how the movement this youth was observed, it is clear that this young man tried to blow up the infidels who were in the masjid, not trying to blow up the masjid to kill the kafir…!!! Please note carefully this sentence.. Perhaps, the youth had found it difficult to approach the target outside, but he found the opportunity in the masjid, and he did not find other way to kill the target except in the masjid, this is possible… then is it not better for us to have husnudzhan (positive thoughts) on this youth…???
It is not forever that the masjid cannot be damaged… When the Ahmadiyah built a masjid, and there was a group of Muslims who ruined it, then some people amongst us were silent and there were also those who justified and probably no one had blamed it, but when the masjidowned by the police was harmed, why do we hesitate to act the same…??? Do you consider that the police are more Muslim compared to the Ahmadiyah? Wallahu’alam… But what’s certain is, Rasulullah had burned Masjid Dhirar, namely a masjid that was built not for the right purposes, but a place to divide the ummah. It was proven that the people had used that masjid for a gathering place, to gossip, to find the fault of the Muslims themselves, and it was recorded in Surah At-Taubah verse 107. Therefore, can’t the masjid used by the ulama’s of the thaghutto destroy the fikrah of the ummah, to stop the war against the thaghut, be harmed, even if it’s just a little bit…? Is it true that the masjid used by the enemies of Allah to plot against His religion cannot be harmed…?
True… that this shaheed bomb exploded in a masjid… and a masjid is a sacred place for Muslims… but does anyone remember the story Hathib bin Abu Balta’ah…? Namely the story of a great sahabah who participated in the battle of Badr, when he sent a letter to the Quraysh in the year of the conquest of Makkah, while telling them about the intentions of Rasulullah salallaahu ‘alaihi wassallam of wanting to set out and attack them.
Ali bin Abi Thalib described his experiences regarding the incident as follows:
Rasulullah SAW ordered the three of us, i.e. myself, Zubair and Al Miqdad : ‘Go to a raudhah (meadow) named Khakh. You will find a woman on her way to Makkah bringing a letter. Take the letter from her hand!’ We set out with our horses and upon arriving at the place we encountered the woman who was referred by the Prophet SAW. We asked her so she would surrender the letter that was hidden. She replied that she did not bring a letter. In the end we threatened: ‘Show us the letter, if not we’ll have to strip you!’ She was forced to take the letter out which she carried inside a bag and surrendered it to us. We then returned immediately to see Rasulullah SAW… When opened, it apparently contained a writing: From Hathib bin Abi Balta’ah to the mushrikeen of Makkah telling them about some plans that were going to be carried out by Rasulullah SAW. Hathib was then summoned and asked by Rasulullah: ‘Hey Hathib, what is the purpose of this letter?’ He asnwered: ‘O Rasulullah, don’t be so hasty in punishing me. I have a very close relationship with the people of Quraysh. I formerly had been their ally although it was not me who became their backbone. Among the people of Muhajirin who are together with you, there are many who have relatives in Makkah who look after the families and possessions they left behind. Although those Quraysh people do not have a genealogical relationship with me, but I wish that there are some among them who want to look after my relatives. I did this so not because I have become murtad at all, nor because I want to become kafir after I have embraced Islam…’
Rasulullah SAW then said to his sahabahs: “Indeed, this person has been telling the truth to you!”
Umar Ibnul Khattab replied: “O Rasulullah, allow me to just chop off the neck of that munafiq!” Rasulullah replied promptly: “He participated in the battle of Badr! Do you know, if Allah SWT elevates the dignity of those who participated in the battle of Badr, thus Allah speaks: ‘Do as you like, I have forgiven you…!’”
O akhi.. we know and are haqqul yaqin that the sins of those who conducted jihad and are killed in Allah’s cause, will be forgiven form the first drop of their blood…
“There are six things that are provided by Allah for one who dies shaheed: his sins are forgiven from the first drops of his blood; he will be shown his place in paradise; kept away from the torment of the grave; he will be spared the torment of the grave; he will be protected from the greater terror (of the Day of Judgement); A crown of dignity, will be placed on his head, one ruby of which is better than this world and all that is in it; he will be married to seventy two of al-hoor al-‘iyn; and he will be permitted to intercede for seventy of his relatives.” (HR. Ahmad, At-Tirmidzi -hadith hasan, and Ibnu Majah with a saheeh sanad)
This youth… who continued to receive criticism… with all his ability.. has tried to destroy the enemies of Allah!! Stepping forward boldly and without even a bit of hesitation, to sacrifice his life for the glory of this religion… not the least he was tempted by the future that seems bright for a young man like him… a strong body… he gives for Allah… a brilliant brain that made him able to arrange strategies to enter into the enemy lines.. he gives to Allah….
Indeed.. my life, my ibaadah and my death.. are only for Allah…
Allahu Akbar! Allahu Akbar! Allahu Akbar!
