ISLAMIC AL-JUMUAA REMINDER AND LEGACY GROUP,(http://aljumaareminder.com/), pondering on Gog & Magog’s actions further:

GOG AND MAGOG HAVE BEEN RELEASED! WHAT TO DO? – Find Solutions via knowledge and try to unite the Muslim Ummah

 

THE IMPORTANCE OF KNOWLEDGE

We plan to write an article on the benefits of knowledge in the future but we would like to stress you to find as much beneficial knowledge as possible. Beneficial knowledge is very valuable in this life and in the Hereafter.

If you have no beneficial knowledge then you won’t most likely know Allah. The more you don’t know Him, the less you fear Him. We want to know more about Allah so that we can fear Him more.

Gog and Magog are able to rule over the masses because the masses have no knowledge of Allah and hence they don’t fear Allah and instead fear Gog and Magog. No sane person who really knows Allah as their Lord would allow themselves to be ruled by men’s whims and desires but they would only want to be ruled by a Khalifa who applies the Quran and the Sunnah.

There is a lot more to speak on knowledge but we will end here. In the meantime proceed with seeking beneficial knowledge and doing righteous good deeds. It is also through knowledge we can give proper dawah to Gog and Magog, right?

Prophet Muhammad (SAW) said: “The seeking of knowledge is obligatory for every Muslim.” [Al-Tirmidhi, Hadith 74]

Prophet Muhammad (SAW) said: “One who treads a path in search of knowledge has his path to Paradise made easy by Allah…” [Riyadh us-Saleheen, 245]

 

 

THE SITUATION WE ARE IN RIGHT NOW 

Verily, Fir’aun (Pharaoh) exalted himself in the land and made its people sects, weakening (oppressing) a group among them, killing their sons, and letting their females live. Verily, he was of the Mufsidun (those who commit great corruption). (Qur’an 28:4)

Isn’t what is in (Qur’an 28:4) what is going on now? Which group among those who have been made sects are being weakened (killed) and oppressed by Gog and Magog? It will only get worse when the Dajjal comes out in person.

Extract from Khalid Yasin’s speech: They have determined, that the greatest threat to western civilization and the continued dominance of western culture is to make sure, that no nation among the Muslims, develop among themselves a global identity, and secondly they never…ever, ever have the ability to re-establish the Khilafah. Now this is in their protocols, this is what you should understand; this is what they are preserving. This division is subtle and hidden, meaning that most Muslims wouldn’t even know it, therefore it is more difficult to recognize than to treat. The non-Muslims who consider themselves, as authorities and experts on Islam and Muslms have observed the following….listen to this please, ‘The Muslims in the world are divided into the following basic social political groups, Asians, Arabs, Africans, those of the far east, those of the near east, those of European, American and Australian backgrounds although those are of the minority those of Slavic and Russian backgrounds although they are also a negligible population and those of South America, this is what they have said…’ Look how they divide us, our objective is to polarize these ethnic groups, that means to keep these groups from uniting together, and exploit their cultural differences in this way, we can maximize our global agenda, and we can minimize any global threat from them. (Subhan’Allah) look how clear they are, look how bold they are! Look how blatant they are, and look how accurate they are!

 

Because we allowed ourselves to be disunited; Gog and Magog have managed to remove the Khilafah and are now working hard to bring their New World Order into existence. In other words, they are working hard to bring in the Dajjal (the ultimate form of corruption).

And those who disbelieve are allies to one another, (and) if you (Muslims of the whole world collectively) do not do so (i.e. become allies, as one united block with one Khalifah – chief Muslim ruler for the whole Muslim world to make victorious Allah’s Religion of Islamic Monotheism), there will be Fitnah (wars, battles, polytheism, etc.) and oppression on earth, and a great mischief and corruption (appearance of polytheism). (Qur’an 8:73)

What to do

Before we begin, we would like to admit that we don’t know what to do now as a Muslim Ummah now that Gog and Magog have been released. We can at least recommend what we believe and know. Other Muslims out there might know better and there must be a solution because our Prophet (SAW) in his final sermon said: I leave behind me two things, the QURAN and my example, the SUNNAH and if you follow these you will never go astray.

 

 

TRY TO UNITE THE MUSLIM UMMAH

The Ummah is in quite a divided state.

It was narrated from ‘Awf bin Malik that the Messenger of Allah(ﷺ) said: “The Jews split into seventy-one sects, one of which will be in Paradise and seventy in Hell. The Christians split into seventy-two sects, seventy-one of which will be in Hell and one in Paradise. I swear by the One Whose Hand is the soul of Muhammad, my nation will split into seventy-three sects, one of which will be in Paradise and seventy-two in Hell.” It was said: “O Messenger of Allah, who are they?” He said: “The main body.”  [Sunan Ibn Majah 3992]

Narrated AbuHurayrah: The Prophet (ﷺ) said: The Jews were split up into seventy-one or seventy-two sects; and the Christians were split up into seventy one or seventy-two sects; and my community will be split up into seventy-three sects. [Sunan Abi Dawud 4596]

Now even if this situation has occurred because it has been decreed; we still have to try to unite the Muslim Ummah because we have been commanded to do so by Allah and His Messenger (eg his final sermon). There is also another reason we believe that one of the biggest issues that needs to be tackled is unity which we will present next week In Shaa Allah.

Listen, believers are also human beings and so they are going to fight sometimes; that is why Allah still called them believers in the beginning of (Qur’an 49:9)

And if two parties or groups among the believers fall to fighting, then make peace between them both, but if one of them rebels against the other, then fight you (all) against the one that which rebels till it complies with the Command of Allah; then if it complies, then make reconciliation between them justly, and be equitable. Verily! Allah loves those who are equitable. (Qur’an 49:9)

The believers are nothing else than brothers (in Islamic religion). So make reconciliation between your brothers, and fear Allah, that you may receive mercy. (Qur’an: 49:10)

You might be wondering, why bother trying to unite the 73 sects if it has already been decreed? The answer is simple really. It can be found in (Qur’an 7:163-165)

And ask them about the town that was by the sea, when they transgressed in the matter of the Sabbath (i.e. Saturday): when their fish came to them openly on the Sabbath day, and did not come to them on the day they had no Sabbath. Thus We made a trial of them for they used to rebel. (Qur’an 7:163)

And when a community among them said: “Why do you preach to a people whom Allah is about to destroy or to punish with a severe torment?” (The preachers) said: “In order to be free from guilt before your Lord (Allah), and perhaps they may fear Allah. (Qur’an 7:164)

So when they forgot the remindings that had been given to them, We rescued those who forbade evil, but We seized those who did wrong with a severe torment because they used to rebel (disobey Allah). (Qur’an 7:165)

These preachers knew that their people would be punished just like we know that out of those 73 sects, 72 sects will be punished (May Allah guide us to that one saved sect). They knew this but they still preached in order to be free from guilt before Allah and perhaps that wrong doers may fear Allah.

Also remember that Adam was destined to be on earth before he was even created but he still did his part and asked Allah for forgiveness despite that decree. We have to be responsible like our father Adam.

Another motivation is that Allah will rescue those who forbade evil. Allah also informs us that those who do wrong will be seized with a severe torment because they used to disbelieve.

Those who did nothing are not mentioned because they didn’t care, so Allah didn’t care to mention them. This is not a fatwa but a pondering of this Ayat. Who are we to give the final judgement? Scholars should provide a fatwa about how much is considered not doing anything via (Qur’an 4:95-96) and (Qur’an 57:10).

 

ALLAH KNEW THAT MUSLIMS WOULD BREAK UP BEFORE GOG AND MAGOG’s ULTIMATE MISCHIEF THAT WOULD LIFT THE BAN IN JERUSALEM FOR THEM TO RETURN

And (remember) she who guarded her chastity [Virgin Maryam (Mary)], We breathed into (the sleeves of) her (shirt or garment) [through Our Ruh – Jibrael (Gabriel)], and We made her and her son [‘Iesa (Jesus)] a sign for Al-‘Alamin (the mankind and jinns). (Qur’an 21:91)

Truly! This, your Ummah [Sharia or religion (Islamic Monotheism)] is one religion, and I am your Lord, therefore worship Me (Alone). (Qur’an 21:92)

But they have broken up and differed as regards amrahum [their religion, order,] among themselves. (And) they all shall return to Us. (Qur’an 21:93)

So whoever does righteous good deeds while he is a believer (in the Oneness of Allah Islamic Monotheism), his efforts will not be rejected. Verily! We record it in his Book of deeds. (Qur’an 21:94)

And there is prohibition upon [the people of] a town which We have destroyed that they will [ever] return. Until when [the dam of] Gog and Magog has been opened and they, from every elevation, descend (Qur’an 21:95-96)

And the true promise (Day of Resurrection) shall draw near (of fulfillment). Then (when mankind is resurrected from their graves), you shall see the eyes of the disbelievers fixedly stare in horror. (They will say): “Woe to us! We were indeed heedless of this; nay, but we were Zalimun (polytheists and wrong-doers, etc.).” (Qur’an 21:97)

Do you notice in the 21st Surah (Al-Anbiya’) the progression of Prophets from Musa and Harun in the 48th Ayat to mentioning that aforetime was Ibrahim in the 51st Ayah. Many Prophets have been mentioned up to the 91st Ayah where ‘Iesa and his mother Maryam are mentioned. Most likely because this Surah is for Prophets, Maryam is mentioned indirectly without name since there is no female Prophet.

Narrated Abu Huraira: I heard Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) saying, “I am the nearest of all the people to the son of Maryam, and all the prophets are paternal brothers, and there has been no prophet between me and him (‘Iesa). [Sahih al-Bukhari 3442] {A similar Hadith was also mentioned in Muslim, Sunan Abi Dawud}

Since there is no Prophet between Prophet Muhammad (SAW) and ‘Iesa we can be sure that Allah is showing us a flow from Surah Al-Anbiya (91st Ayah to the 92nd Ayah) when Prophet Muhammad (SAW) and us Muslims are addressed by Allah that our Ummah is one.

The Ayats from the 92nd Ayat to the 97th Ayat are all connected to show a flow of events.  We can tell this because throughout the beginning of these Ayats the particles “wa” and “fa” have been used to unite the Ayats.

Allah in the 93rd Ayat mentions how ‘they’ have broken up and differed as regards their religion among themselves. Who are the “they” being addressed here. Let us look at the reality.

  • Who ended the caliphate? On 3rd March 1924 (27th Rajab 1342)., the first President of the Turkish Republic, Mustafa Kemal, as part of his secular reforms, constitutionally abolished the institution of the Caliphate.
  • When was Israel declared a state? Israel was declared a state on 14th May 1948 (Friday 5th Rajab 1367 A.H.)
  • When was Israel recognized as a state? Israel was recognized as a state on 1st May 1949 (Sunday 2nd Rajab 1368 A.H.).

 

We don’t know why these major events took place in the month of Rajab but this is the reality.

Though the actual wording used in (Qur’an 21:92) was breaking up and differing of amarahum which comes from the root word a-m-r.

Amr

By looking at the definition of a-m-r and our 140th article what do you notice? Allah gave us dominance over the earth which is the Caliphate and we broke up this great honour we were given. The vacuum that has been left open is now being filled by the devilish Dajjal system through the hard work of the Gog and Magog. What a great loss!

A person who was known as a Muslim abolished the Caliphate but unknown to many was that Gog and Magog were the ones involved. These are the “they” who are referred to in the 93rd Ayat along with all those Muslims who prefer to live in sects.

In the 94th Ayat, Allah is informing us that our efforts will not be rejected if we do good deeds while we are believers. Remember that we said we don’t really know what to do but we are just going to suggest some of the good things we can do. The rest you are going to have to figure it out on your own via the Quran and Sunnah.

We know what happens in the 95th to 97th Ayat through our previous articles. The transition of the people returning to the town (Jerusalem) occurred after the ‘they’ broke up the religion as stated in the 93rd Ayat.

Gog and Magog have been around for a very long time but they managed to break up the Caliphate which represented Allah’s rule on the earth and replaced it with a democratic manmade constitution system which as we learnt last week is their system.

Since the biggest problem outlined by Allah was breaking up of the religion; we believe that the primary goal is to try to unite the Ummah. If we are not united, not much can be done compared to when we are united.

Let us also understand that the tops of Gog and Magog have succeeded in destroying the Khalifa and are working hard to ensure there is no Muslim unity. They are also concerned with the growing number of Muslims.

It should be noted that when they tried abolishing the Khalifa; they tried bribing many Muslim rulers before Mustafa Kemal. But those Muslims were not men to be bribed and were not ready to give up even an inch of Palestine.

[AbuTalha Zahack] When Mustafa Kemal destroyed the Khalifa; he said that he would substitute Arabic with Turkish language and even the Adhan was given in Turkish.

Now how did they go about with dividing Muslims. They sent this spy:

divider

(Forgive the images but these guys need to be known)

His name E L Lawrence and he was also known as Lawrence of Arabia. They sent this spy to all the Arab countries and a famous Hollywood movie was also made on him.

divider-movie

This Lawrence of Arabia would go to every Arab country and would incite and provoke them against other Arab countries. He went to Turks and said you are Turks, don’t allow Arabs in. And he incited Turks to fight against Arabs. And he went to Arabs and said you are Arabs; you have the right to rule. Kick out Turks.

And then he made Muslims fight and they disunited this Ummah. And they enjoy this disunity. This guy also promoted nationalism. You are an Indian Muslim, he is a Pakistani Muslim, he is an Afghanistan Muslim, he is a Saudi Muslim etc. And today we still find this where Muslims say, “Yes, we do this and Saudis don’t do this. Saudis do that and we don’t do this.” They promoted this. There is nothing in Islam called nationalism. So they promoted nationalism. [AbuTalha Zahack]

 

Source: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/T._E._Lawrence

Thomas Edward Lawrence CB DSO FAS (16 August 1888 – 19 May 1935) was a British author, archaeologist, military officer, and diplomat. He was renowned for his liaison role during the Sinai and Palestine Campaign and the Arab Revolt against the Ottoman Empire during the First World War. The breadth and variety of his activities and associations, and his ability to describe them vividly in writing, earned him international fame as Lawrence of Arabia—a title used for the 1962 film based on his wartime activities.

Lawrence was born out of wedlock in Tremadog, Wales in August 1888 to Thomas Chapman (who became, in 1914, Sir Thomas Chapman, 7th Baronet), an Anglo-Irish nobleman from County Westmeath, and Sarah Junner, a Scottish governess who was herself illegitimate. Chapman had left his wife and first family in Ireland to live with Junner, and they called themselves Mr and Mrs Lawrence. In the summer of 1896, the Lawrences moved to Oxford, where Lawrence attended high school, then in 1907-1910 studied History at Jesus College. Between 1910 and 1914 he worked as an archaeologist, chiefly at Carchemish, in what is now Syria.

Soon after the outbreak of war he joined the British army and was stationed in Egypt. In 1916, he was sent to Arabia on an intelligence mission and quickly became involved with the Arab Revolt, serving, along with other British officers, as a liaison to the Arab forces. Working closely with Emir Faisal, a leader of the revolt, he participated in and sometimes led military activities against the Ottoman armed forces, culminating in the capture of Damascus in October 1918.

After the war, Lawrence served until 1922 as a diplomat, working both with the British government and with Faisal. In 1922, he retreated from public life and spent the years until 1935 serving as an enlisted man, mostly in the Royal Air Force, with a brief stint in the Army. During this time, he wrote and published his best-known work, Seven Pillars of Wisdom, an autobiographical account of his participation in the Arab Revolt. He also translated books into English and completed The Mint, which was published posthumously. He corresponded extensively and was friendly with well-known artists, writers, and politicians. For the RAF, he participated in the design of rescue motorboats. 

Lawrence’s public image resulted in part from the sensationalised reporting of the Arab revolt by American journalist Lowell Thomas, as well as from Seven Pillars of Wisdom. In 1935, Lawrence was fatally injured in a motorcycle accident in Dorset.

 

This part of Abdur Raheem Green’s speech should also open our eyes to the fact that some imaginary lines created by Gog and Magog are gearing disunity.

Abdur Raheem Green: I think we Muslims are in a collective state of psychosis because we are proud to belong to country that was a map drawn by the non muslims 40, 50 years ago. How insane is that? Zindabad Pakistan. Pakistan is a country that was put there by the British. Maps drawn on the line, Egypt, Libya, Tunisia, Morocco; lines drawn on maps by the French, by the Italians, by the British, dividing us up into nations and now we are screaming, running behind some flag that didn’t even exist 100 years ago. Ready to fight for it and die for it. This is madness, this is sickness, this is something so far removed to what Allah revealed to Muhammad (SAW). It is nothing but another form of tribalism about which the Prophet Muhammad (SAW) said, “Whoever calls for tribalism and whoever fights for tribalism then they call and they fight and they die the death of Jahiliya (ignorance)”. Yet these are the lines upon which we are divided. Nationalistic lines, tribalistic lines, sectarian lines yet Allah warned us in the Quran many times about the dangers of dividing into sects and groups.  Allah says in (Qur’an 6:159) to the Prophet Muhammad (SAW) as for those people who divide their deen into sects you have nothing to do with them in the least. Their reckoning is with Allah.  And in the Quran Allah likened those people who divide the religion into sects and into groups, He likened them to the Mushriks and indeed it is one of the qualities, and sifwat and attributes of disbelievers.

Since they are also worried about the growing numbers of Muslims they have to label us as terrorists and promote it to such an extent they ignore other greater concerns in their media to justify the killing of Muslims. People who write against Muslims are paid well. Entertainment is also geared to always presenting the Arabs (meaning Muslims too) as buffoons and villains that need to be dealt with.

 

 

WHAT SHOULD WE CALL OURSELVES

Let us begin by removing misconceptions. Some people believe that because they believe, they are guaranteed Paradise, right? Sorry, it is not that easy. If that was all that needed, Allah would not have addressed us believers in (Qur’an 66:6) as follows:

O you who believe! Ward off from yourselves and your families a Fire (Hell) whose fuel is men and stones, over which are (appointed) angels stern (and) severe, who disobey not, (from executing) the Commands they receive from Allah, but do that which they are commanded. (Qur’an 66:6)

You need not only to believe but also to do righteous good deeds. A parable would make things easy to understand. If a boy claims to love his mother but never does anything for her and never does what he is told to do by his mother; then is this boy being sincere. There would be no blame on the mother if she says, “You never value me, if you loved me you would do what I ask you.” This is assuming the boy is a Muslim and the mother is a Muslim asking the boy to do permissible things but the boy is still refusing.

There are many Ayats from the Quran where Allah addresses us as Muslims and where previous nations have addressed themselves as Muslims as well as even the jinns who refer to themselves as Muslims. Muslims are those who submit themselves to Allah.

Some of the Ayats are as follows: (Qur’an 6:163:8), (Qur’an 10:72:16), (Qur’an 10:90:27), (Qur’an 16:89:24), (Qur’an 16:102:13), (Qur’an 22:78:20), (Qur’an 27:91:17), (Qur’an 33:35:2), (Qur’an 39:12:5), (Qur’an 41:33:13), (Qur’an 46:15:45), (Qur’an 51:36:7), (Qur’an 68:35:2) & (Qur’an 72:14:3)

It is best not to use other titles just to be on the safe side. Do you remember this Hadith?

Narrated Abu Sa`id Al-Khudri: The Prophet (ﷺ) said, “On the day of Resurrection Allah will say, ‘O Adam!’ Adam will reply, ‘Labbaik our Lord, and Sa`daik ‘ Then there will be a loud call (saying), Allah orders you to take from among your offspring a mission for the (Hell) Fire.’ Adam will say, ‘O Lord! Who are the mission for the (Hell) Fire?’ Allah will say, ‘Out of each thousand, take out 999.’ At that time every pregnant female shall drop her load (have a miscarriage) and a child will have grey hair. And you shall see mankind as in a drunken state, yet not drunk, but severe will be the torment of Allah.” (22.2) (When the Prophet (ﷺ) mentioned this), the people were so distressed (and afraid) that their faces got changed (in color) whereupon the Prophet (ﷺ) said, “From Gog and Magog nine-hundred ninety-nine will be taken out and one from you. You Muslims (compared to the large number of other people) will be like a black hair on the side of a white ox, or a white hair on the side of a black ox, and I hope that you will be one-fourth of the people of Paradise.” On that, we said, “Allahu-Akbar!” Then he said, “I hope that you will be) one-third of the people of Paradise.” We again said, “Allahu-Akbar!” Then he said, “(I hope that you will be) one-half of the people of Paradise.” So we said, Allahu Akbar.” [Bukhari USC-MSA web (English) reference: Vol. 6, Book 60, Hadith 265; Arabic reference: Book 65, Hadith 4741]

Even Prophet Muhammad (SAW) addresses us as Muslims. If you are not addressing yourself by this title of Muslim then there is a high chance you are being part of Gog and Magog as we will see below how creating sects is the way of the Mushrikin. Remember according to this Hadith; you are either a Muslim or part of Gog and Magog.

What do you think of the following Ayat (Qur’an 49:11) below?

O you who believe! Let not a group scoff at another group, it may be that the latter are better than the former; nor let (some) women scoff at other women, it may be that the latter are better than the former, nor defame one another, nor insult one another by nicknames. How bad is it, to insult one’s brother after having Faith [i.e. to call your Muslim brother (a faithful believer) as: “O sinner”, or “O wicked”, etc.]. And whosoever does not repent, then such are indeed Zalimun (wrong-doers, etc.). (Qur’an 49:11)

Now those who believe are given many instructions in (Qur’an 49:11). The question is; Is Allah addressing you in (Qur’an 49:11) or not? If not then you are a disbeliever, right? Correct us if we are wrong.

This should eradicate the problem of Muslims naming each other by name and sects and madhabs (school of thoughts). Example of bad names is as follows:

  • Pakistani Muslims, American Muslims and such (why not say Muslims that live in the area that was named Pakistani when and if really necessary to address an issue; maybe Muslims in that area need water)

 

  • Sunni Muslims, Shia Muslims, Sufi Muslims and such (these kind of names should not even exist because they were not present when Prophet Muhammad (SAW) was around.)

 

  • Shafii muslims, Maaliki Muslims, etc (It is not compulsory to follow a madhab and the hadiths below should be sufficient to explain why. Therefore there is no need to classify ourselves as a certain group because we Muslims are commanded by Allah to follow the Quran and Sunnah. What about the Muslims who lived before these 4 imams? Were they not Muslims? What about a Muslim who doesn’t know about the 4 imaams in our times but is exposed only to the Quran and Sunnah, will he be going to Hell considering he is trying his best to follow the Quran and Sunnah. Prophet Muhammad (SAW) said in his last sermon that if we hold on to the Quran and Sunnah we would never go astray and that is why the Muslims before the 4 imams who followed the Quran and Sunnah are okay)

 

One school of thought may say if you touch a woman even by accident, you have to make wudu again. Another school of thought says if you touch a woman unintentionally then there is no need to retake wudu. People end up arguing over such matters. These hadiths below should be enough for Muslims with sincere differences of opinions to use against each other.

Chapter: The superiority of that person who leaves all doubtful (unclear) things for the sake of his religion: Narrated An-Nu’man bin Bashir: I heard Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) saying, ‘Both legal and illegal things are evident but in between them there are doubtful (suspicious) things and most of the people have no knowledge about them. So whoever saves himself from these suspicious things saves his religion and his honor. And whoever indulges in these suspicious things is like a shepherd who grazes (his animals) near the Hima (private pasture) of someone else and at any moment he is liable to get in it. (O people!) Beware! Every king has a Hima and the Hima of Allah on the earth is His illegal (forbidden) things. Beware! There is a piece of flesh in the body if it becomes good (reformed) the whole body becomes good but if it gets spoilt the whole body gets spoilt and that is the heart. [Sahih al-Bukhari 52]

Chapter: Taking that which is lawful and leaving that which is unclear: Nu’man b. Bashir (Allah be pleased with him) reported: I heard Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon himn) as having said this (and Nu’man) pointed towards his ears with his fingers): What is lawful is evident and what is unlawful is evident, and in between them are the things doubtful which many people do not know. So he who guards against doubtful things keeps his religion and honour blameless, and he who indulges in doubtful things indulges in fact in unlawful things, just as a shepherd who pastures his animals round a preserve will soon pasture them in it. Beware, every king has a preserve, and the things God his declaced unlawful are His preserves. Beware, in the body there is a piece of flesh; if it is sound, the whole body is sound and if it is corrupt the whole body is corrupt, and hearken it is the heart. [Sahih Muslim 1599 a]

Chapter: What Has Been Related About Matters That Are Not Clear: An-Numan bin Bashir narrated that the Messenger of Allah (S) said: “The lawful is clear and the unlawful is clear, and between that are matters that are doubtful (not clear); many of the people do not know whether it is lawful or unlawful. So whoever leaves it to protect his religion and his honor, then he will be safe, and whoever falls into something from them, then he soon will have fallen into the unlawful. Just like if someone grazes (his animals) around a sanctuary, he would soon wind up in it. Indeed for every king is a sanctuary (pasture), and indeed Allah’s sanctuary is what He made unlawful.” [Jami` at-Tirmidhi 1205] [Sahih]

Chapter: Regarding Avoiding Things That One Doubts: Narrated Al-Nu’man b. Bashir: I heard Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) say: But between them are certain doubtful things which many people do not recognize. He who guards against doubtful things keeps his religion and his honor blameless, but he who falls into doubtful things falls into what is unlawful. [Sunan Abi Dawud 3330] [Sahih]

The Islamic Etiquette of Disagreement

(Presentation by Mohamed Baianonie, Imam of the Islamic Center of Raleigh NC, given at the CIC’s third annual conference held in Columbia, SC on Saturday, June 20, 1998)

Normally, when we are in agreement, it is easy for us to behave properly with each other. However, when we are in disagreement, we don’t always behave properly. What makes it worse is when people try to justify their misbehavior by pretending that they are very religious. People who do this pretend that they are very concerned about the Deen of Allah. When in reality, they are just ignorant of the teachings of Islam and Islamic behavior.

Before I talk about the etiquette of disagreement, I should clarify the definition of disagreement, and I shall explain what is acceptable and what is not. Also I will mention some benefits that we can gain from disagreeing in an acceptable manner.

Definition: The definition of disagreement is when two individuals or more have conflicting ideas, positions, or sayings. 

What are the acceptable and unacceptable disagreements among Muslims?

Firstly, it is acceptable for Muslim scholars to have disagreement in opinions. It is acceptable because there are many debates where there is no clear-cut evidence to the matter. It is possible that some narrations are not very authentic in the chain of narrators, or some might interpret texts differently than others . In fact, most Islamic texts are like this and very debated. Therefore, it is natural to have disagreement among the Muslim scholars.

 

This type of disagreement is not only acceptable, but in fact, rewarded by Allah (S.W.T.) at least once, with the possibility of two rewards. Those who qualify for this reward are the scholars who have the greatest knowledge in the matter. Prophet Muhammad (S.A.W.) confirms this reward in an authentic Hadith reported by Imams Bukhari, Muslim, and Abu-Dawud, which says, “If the Hakim (ruler or judge) made his Ijtihad or the extraction of the verdict from original sources of legislation and he reached the correct verdict he will get two rewards. And if he reached the wrong verdict he will only get one reward.”

 

IARLG’s comments: Differences of opinion took place even when Prophet Muhammad (SAW) was alive amongst his companions. Do you think they wouldn’t occur now? Check out this incident.

 

Source: http://islam1.org/khutub/Etiquete_of_disagreement.htm

Other evidence for this acceptable disagreement in Islam comes from a Hadith reported by Imams Bukhari and Muslim, in which Prophet Muhammad (S.A.W.) ordered his companions after the battle of Al-Ahzaab saying, “No one of you should pray Asr until you reach the village of Bani-Qurayzah (A Jewish tribe) .” While they were on their way, the time of Asr came. Some companions said we should not pray until we reach Bani-Qurayzah. Others said we should pray Asr now because the Prophet (S.A.W.) did not mean for us to leave the Asr prayer, but he wanted us to be in a hurry. So some of the companions prayed Asr , while others continued on until they reached Bani-Qurayzah after sunset. When they went back to the Prophet, they mentioned to him the story and he did not blame either one of them.” This Hadith clearly shows us that the Prophet Muhammad (S.A.W.) accepted both opinions, because if one of them were wrong then the Prophet would have expressed it at that time.

 

IARLG’s comments: There are basic things which are clear that we should not differ like Allah is One and Prophet Muhammad (SAW) is the last and final Messenger. According to (Qur’an 3:7) below, we should not differ in those Ayats which are entirely clear.

It is He Who has sent down to you (Muhammad SAW) the Book (this Qur’an). In it are Verses that are entirely clear, they are the foundations of the Book [and those are the Verses of Al-Ahkam (commandments, etc.), Al-Fara’id (obligatory duties) and Al-Hudud (legal laws for the punishment of thieves, adulterers, etc.)]; and others not entirely clear. So as for those in whose hearts there is a deviation (from the truth) they follow that which is not entirely clear thereof, seeking Al-Fitnah (polytheism and trials, etc.), and seeking for its hidden meanings, but none knows its hidden meanings save Allah(. And)(and) those who are firmly grounded in knowledge say: “We believe in it; the whole of it (clear and unclear Verses) are from our Lord.” And none receive admonition except men of understanding.. (Qur’an 3:7)

The Mujtahideen are a group of Muslims scholars who extract verdicts based on the Qur’an and the Sunnah , yet do not follow others opinions such as Imams Abu-Hanifah, Malik, Shfi’i and Ahmad Ibn-Hanbal may Allah be pleased with all of them . The disagreements among the Mujtahideen are also acceptable in Islam and will be rewarded. They will be rewarded because they derive their verdicts from the Islamic legislative sources.

Acceptable disagreements do not only include matters of Shariah (Islamic Law), but also include matters of Aqeedah (belief) where there is no clear-cut evidence. This type of disagreement in the matters of Aqeedah or belief used to be practiced among the companions of the prophet. For example,

Imam Muslim reported on a situation that happened between Ibn-Abbas and Aisha’, may Allah be pleased with both of them . They disagreed in the matter referring to Prophet Muhammad’s (S.A.W.) sighting of Allah with his naked eye during the night of Mi’raj . Ibn-Abbas (R.A.) used to tell people that he believed that the Prophet Muhammad (S.A.W.) saw Allah with his naked eye during the night of Mi’raj . He supported his opinion with verses (12 &13) from Surat An-Najim, what can be translated as, “Will you then dispute with him (Muhammad) about what he saw. And indeed he saw him at a second descent (another time). ” When Aisha’ heard about his opinion she said, “The hair on my head stood up” meaning that she was shocked. Then she said, “Whoever claims that Muhammad (S.A.W.) saw his Lord in the night of Mi’raj , brought a big lie on Allah (S.W.T.).” She supported her opinion by verse (103) in Surat Al-Ana’m, what can be translated as, “No vision can grasp Him (Allah) , but His Grasp is over all vision. He is the Most Subtle and Courteous, Well-Acquainted with all things. ” In this case the disagreement is between Ibn-Abbas and Aisha’ may Allah be pleased with both of them in a matter of Aqeedah (belief). This disagreement resulted from different interpretations of the text, not because of its authenticity.

Secondly, an unacceptable disagreement is every disagreement in the matters of Deen where there is clear-cut evidence. There are some issues in Islam that cannot be argued. There are many texts where the narration is highly authentic or the matter can be understood in only one way. Also, it is unacceptable for people who are unqualified in Islamic law to dispute about any matters of Deen . Those who get involved in such disputes are committing a sinful act motivated by desire and by Satan.

Here are some of the benefits that come from acceptable disagreements:

  • Acceptable disagreement gives people a chance to hear all possible opinions that are backed by evidence.
  • Acceptable disagreement also gives people more flexibility in implementing Islam in their lives because they will have more options to choose from.

 

Some of the Islamic etiquettes of disagreement:

  • Muslims should avoid disagreement as much as possible. However, we have every right to disagree when there is a valid reason to do so, yet under normal conditions we should find agreement.
  • Muslims should refer to the Book of Allah and the authentic Sunnah of Prophet Muhammad (S.A.W.) in the case of a dispute about an Islamic matter. However in any matters of the worldly life, we should refer to those who specialize in these matters like doctors and engineers, etc.
  • Muslims must be ready to accept the verdict from Allah (S.W.T.) and His Messenger with complete submission after the truth becomes clear to them. In this case they should follow the truth, no matter what.
  • Muslims should have the pure intention of pleasing Allah (S.W.T.) in any of their disagreements, and should not argue just for satisfying one’s desires or for arrogance.
  • Everyone in disagreement should believe that there is a chance that the others could be correct and that he could be wrong.
  • Those who disagree should behave with the best of etiquette in their debate. Those in debate should focus on the subject, while choosing the most accurate words, clarifying the meaning of certain terminology that will be used, using the best words and avoiding the bad ones, listening to other opinions carefully with an open mind, avoiding interrupting others while they speak, and finally, giving others enough time to express their opinions.
  • People in disagreement should not continue their pointless debate after all the opinions are proven clearly or after discovering that some people are just stubborn and will never change their opinion.
  • Muslims in disagreement should restrain themselves from accusing others of deviation, corruption, or other accusations, and should instead believe that people are good and sincere in their opinions.
  • The objective of the discussion should be to reach the truth. It does not matter who or how the truth comes about, just as long as the truth is revealed.
  • If no agreement is reached, then all parties should respect each other’s opinions and give each other an excuse. Do not attack the person by calling them hardheaded or saying that they have bad intentions. Some people just have different views, and will not change their opinions no matter what. You should work together and build upon the ideas that you do agree upon. By doing this, we are following the ways of the people of the Sunnah and Jama’ah.

 

 

REALIZE THAT WE ARE DIFFERENT AND THERE ARE DIFFERENT PATHS TO REACH THE ONE STRAIGHT PATH

Certainly, your efforts and deeds are diverse (different in aims and purposes); (Qur’an 92:3)

Certainly, you have different ideas. (Qur’an 51:8)

And verily this is my Straight Path, so follow it, and follow not the (other evil) paths, for they will separate you away from His Path. This He has ordained for you that you may become Al-Muttaqun (the pious). (Qur’an 6:153)

(It will be said to the angels): “Assemble those who did wrong, together with their companions (from the devils) and what they used to worship. Instead of Allah, and lead them on to the way of flaming Fire (Hell);” (Qur’an 37:22-23)

As for those who strive hard in Us (Our Cause), We will surely guide them to Our Paths. And verily, Allah is with the Muhsinun (doers of good). (Qur’an 29:69)

Wherewith Allah guides all those who seek His Good Pleasure to ways of peace, and He brings them out of darkness by His Will unto light and guides them to a Straight Way (Islamic Monotheism). (Qur’an 5:16)

We need to understand that there are many Muslims but we don’t have one leader; meaning we don’t have a Khalifa to rule us. If we assume we are all from the saved sect and we consider (Qur’an 92:3) & (Qur’an 51:8); will we be able to unite?

One group might specialize in collecting Zakat, another group will concentrate on taking people to Hajj, another group will focus on teaching Arabic only, another group will focus on teaching the recitation of Quran alone and so on.

All these are the different paths which lead to the Straight Path which is good as can be seen that several paths (subul) are different ways of getting to the Swiratul Mustaqim (Straight Path). There is no plural for Swiratul Mustaqim in the Quran to indicate to us that there is only one way to guidance. The many different paths (subul) to guidance are there to guide one to the main road, the Straight Path as can be seen in (Qur’an 29:69) and (Qur’an 5:16).

We should also be careful of the other swiratin (path) shown in (Qur’an 37:22-23). The main road to Hell also has many evil paths (subul) as shown in (Qur’an 6:153). These evil paths in (Qur’an 6:153) are so dangerous they are called ‘the paths’. The word ‘the [ al in Arabic]’ shows that these paths are defined as definite and not indefinite. Indefinite like ‘a path’ would not explain much but ‘the paths’ explains much because Allah has already informed us what is haraam (forbidden and what is sinful) via the Quran and Sunnah. That is why ‘the’ is appropriate to show how specific they are.

How do you join all these groups together from every part of the world and have them agree on having one leader? We don’t know the answer but we do have recommendations:

  • Respect every group as long as they are truly trying to support Islam. Just because you guide people to do Hajj properly doesn’t mean you look down at another group who is also trying to guide people to do Hajj properly. Instead of feeling jealous of each other; how about cooperating and learning from each other? Each of us has the responsibility of ensuring we take Islam forward to future generations in its pure form.
  • Try to find solutions via the Quran and Sunnah;

 

We also advise scholars to give a Fatwa as per (Qur’an 21:93-94) assuming you have read our article and what we have commented on these Ayats:

But they have broken up and differed as regards their religion among themselves. (And) they all shall return to Us. So whoever does righteous good deeds while he is a believer (in the Oneness of Allah Islamic Monotheism), his efforts will not be rejected. Verily! We record it in his Book of deeds. (Qur’an 21:93-94)

 

OTHER AYATS THAT TELLS US MUSLIMS NOT TO BE SECTS

(Qur’an 3:102-5), (Qur’an 6:159), (Qur’an 8:73), (Qur’an 19:36-39), (Qur’an 23:52-56), (Qur’an 28:4), (Qur’an 30:30-32), (Qur’an 42:13-16), (Qur’an 43:63-66) & (Qur’an 49:9-18) are among the Ayat from the Quran one can read from:

The 31st Ayat of the 30th Surah ends with informing us not to be mushrikun. The mushrikun are defined in Ayah 32 of the 30th Surah. They make the religions into sects.

….. This day, I have perfected your religion for you, completed My Favour upon you, and have chosen for you Islam as your religion. ….. (Qur’an 5:3)

Why do we need sects when our religion is already perfected?

 

TO THOSE MUSLIMS WHO PREFER THIS LIFE OVER THE NEXT LIFE

How do we unite the Muslim Ummah? This is one of the most difficult tasks ever considering that Gog and Magog repeatedly try to ensure we stay divided. We also have the problem of hypocrites within the Muslim Ummah who prefer this worldly life over the Hereafter and don’t care about the religion of Allah. In our 140th article we explained how preferring this world life over the Hereafter can make you a disbeliever.

These Muslims who prefer this worldy life are bold enough that they don’t even pray and are not afraid of showing they don’t pray.

In the time of Prophet Muhammad (SAW), hypocrites started showing up in Madina when Islam was up and rising. During the early struggles in Mecca there was no benefit to being a Muslim and it was troublesome for people to become Muslims except the chosen slaves of Allah.  The only two times the word lazy is used in the Quran is for the hypocrites in their Salah:

Verily, the hypocrites seek to deceive Allah, but it is He Who deceives them.  And when they stand up for As-Salat (the prayer), they stand with laziness and to be seen of men, and they do not remember Allah but little. (Qur’an 4:142)

And nothing prevents their contributions from being accepted from them except that they disbelieved in Allah and in His Messenger; and that they came not to As-Salat (the prayer) except in a lazy state; and that they offer not contributions but unwillingly. (Qur’an 9:54)

And seek help in patience and As-Salat (the prayer) and truly it is extremely heavy and hard except for Al-Khashi’un [i.e. the true believers in Allah – those who obey Allah with full submission, fear much from His Punishment, and believe in His Promise (Paradise, etc.) and in His Warnings (Hell, etc.)]. (They are those) who are certain that they are going to meet their Lord, and that unto Him they are going to return. (Qur’an 2:45-46)

 

Why did the hypocrites even bother to pray even though patience and As-Salat are very difficult? It is because they feared they would be exposed. The hypocrites never dared to show they don’t pray because for the sahaba they could somewhat understand if you can’t pay Zakat, can’t make Hajj and can’t fast but if you didn’t pray you were immediately recognized as a kaffir because you have to pray no matter what. With Zakat, Hajj and fasting, you may be excused when certain conditions exist.

Nowadays since Islam is not ruling there are many of those hypocrites who don’t pray and are confident about it. In areas where Islam and prayers are the norm like Mecca and Madina hypocrites will pray to show off and to be seen  of men so that they can continue to enjoy worldly benefits.

The following signs are ascribed to Ali in the coming of Dajjal [Bilgrami, Sayed Tahir (2005). “6”. Essence of Life, A translation of Ain al-Hayat by Allama Mohammad Baqir Majlisi. Qum: Ansarian Publications. p. 104.]:

  • People will stop offering the prayers
  • Dishonesty will be the way of life
  • Falsehood will become a virtue
  • People will mortgage their faith for worldly gain
  • Usury and bribery will become legitimate
  • There will be acute famine at the time
  • There will be no shame amongst people
  • Many people would worship Satan
  • There would be no respect for elderly people

Therefore a proof that the Dajjal is about to come because of the assistance of Gog and Magog is that hypocrites will not pray and will be confident about it. Those Muslims who abandon the prayers have to know that they really cause much harm to the Muslim Ummah.

Hadith on Brotherhood: The believers are like one body in their love, mercy, and compassion for each other: An-Nu’man ibn Basheer reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “The parable of the believers in their affection, mercy, and compassion for each other is that of a body. When any limb aches, the whole body reacts with sleeplessness and fever.” [Ṣaḥīḥ al-Bukhārī 5665, Ṣaḥīḥ Muslim 2586]

The parable that the Muslim Ummah is like one body is a great parable. Think about this:

  • If there are 4 Muslims in a company with 16 disbelievers and only 1 of them prays. What is the outcome? The 3 Muslims who don’t pray are affecting the 1 Muslim who prays in that the disbelievers will think that 1 Muslim is weird and that if these 3 are not praying then this 1 Muslim is an extremist.
  • This is just like the body; when a person’s leg has a problem in the knee joint and you don’t take care of it, the nutrients from the spinal cord will go to the knee joint to support it and hence the spinal cord will also be affected with time because it is being stressed by taking care of two areas instead of one. All this occurs because the knee joint issue was not addressed and rectified. Hence with time the spinal cord and knee joint will both fail.
  • Do you see the connection here? The 3 Muslims are like the knee joint problem and the 1 Muslim is like the nutrients who are compensating for what the other 3 had to do.
  • The Dajjal will be brought about because Muslims didn’t care about their religion and thought of it as no big deal without realizing that slowly and surely they were contributing to the emergence of the Dajjal. And hence the Dajjal will harm the true Muslims greatly and all this because some Muslims decided to become hypocrites. Now do you understand (Qur’an 8:25) and Sahih al-Bukhari 3346?

 

And fear the Fitnah (affliction and trial etc.) which affects not in particular (only) those of you who do wrong (but it may afflict all the good and the bad people), and know that Allah is Severe in punishment. (Qur’an 8:25)

Narrated Zainab bint Jahsh: That the Prophet (SAW) once came to her in a state of fear and said, “None has the right to be worshipped but Allah. Woe unto the Arabs from a danger that has come near. An opening has been made in the wall of Gog and Magog like this,” making a circle with his thumb and index finger. Zainab bint Jahsh said, “O Allah’s Messenger (SAW)! Shall we be destroyed even though there are pious persons among us?” He said, “Yes, when the evil person will increase. [Sahih al-Bukhari 3346]

We focused on the prayer first because it is the most important deed that it will be asked of first and the deed Allah ordained for us directly to Prophet Muhammad (SAW) without anyone in between. Jibrael took Prophet Muhammad (SAW) to talk with Allah and that is when we received the 5 prayers with rewards of 50 prayers thanks to Musa’s persistence in advising the Prophet.

Then, there has succeeded them a posterity who have made lost their As-Salat (the prayers) and have followed lusts. So they will be thrown in Hell. Except those who repent and believe, and work righteousness. Such will enter Paradise and they will not be wronged in aught. (Qur’an 19:59-60)

So he (the disbeliever) neither believed nor prayed! But on the contrary, he belied and turned away! Then he walked in full pride to his family admiring himself! Woe to you [O man (disbeliever)]! And then (again) woe to you! Again, woe to you [O man (disbeliever)]! And then (again) woe to you! (Qur’an 75:31-35)

“What has caused you to enter Hell?” They will say: “We were not of those who used to offer their Salat (prayers) nor we used to feed Al-Miskin (the poor); and we used to talk falsehood with vain talkers and we used to belie the Day of Recompense until there came to us (the death) that is certain.” So no intercession of intercessors will be of any use to them. (Qur’an 74:42-48)

It is not just the fact that Muslims are not praying which causes all these problems. Muslims have to pray properly; if the prayer is sound then everything else will be okay. People in prayer seek guidance and ask Allah for forgiveness. As such they can avoid sins and repent sincerely when they commit sins and that is why we are focusing on urging the Muslims to pray sincerely to Allah Alone. We Muslims have to remind each other too because as humans we tend to forget. Allah says:

Recite what has been revealed to you of the Book, and perform As-Salat (Iqamat-as-Salat). Verily, As-Salat (the prayer) prevents from Al-Fahsha’ (i.e. great sins of every kind, unlawful sexual intercourse, etc.) and Al-Munkar (i.e. disbelief, polytheism, and every kind of evil wicked deed, etc.) and the remembering (praising, etc.) of (you by) Allah (in front of the angels) is greater indeed [than your remembering (praising, etc.) Allah in prayers, etc.]. And Allah knows what you do. (Qur’an 29:45)

Therefore remind (men) in case the reminder profits (them). The reminder will be received by him who fears (Allah), But it will be avoided by the wretched, who will enter the great Fire and made to taste its burning, wherein he will neither die (to be in rest) nor live (a good living). Indeed whosoever purifies himself (by avoiding polytheism and accepting Islamic Monotheism) shall achieve success, and remembers (glorifies) the Name of his Lord (worships none but Allah), and prays (five compulsory prayers and Nawafil additional prayers). (Qur’an 87:9-15)

 

One Body; Source: http://dailyhadith.adaptivesolutionsinc.com/hadith/One-Body.htm

If your finger, foot, or any part of your body is hurting, you cannot sleep. Your body may develop a fever while it tries to neutralize the pathogens in an infected part. When one part of your body is trying to fight the enemy, the whole body invariably gets involved in the process. The Prophet (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) described the Ummah as one body!

So if a Muslim anywhere in the world, in the centre of the body or the tips, on the finger or on the toes, is hurting, you should feel the same pain. If you are only concerned about your safety and the safety of your direct family, then there’s something wrong with you. You are not really part of the body. The Prophet (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said that the Ummah is one body: It doesn’t matter that they are split into different political states or that they belong to different Madhahibs/Fiqh, as long as the person is a Muslim they are a part of your body.

Sometimes we look at it as, “Only me and my group are Muslims.” Why? Because he doesn’t follow my Jamaa’h, he’s not following my way? As long as you cannot prove that that Muslim is a Kafir (disbeliever), he is a Muslim. As long as you don’t have evidence that such a person is a Murtad (apostate), he is a Muslim; whether he belongs to the same Madhhab or the same group or the same country or not, makes no difference.

We all talk about the importance of having unity. If having unity means having one group, abandoning all the different Jamaa’ts and getting rid of all of the different Madhahibs, then we’ll all just be copies of each other and that’s an impossible thing to have. The fact that the Ummah is diverse and has these different elements in it, is what makes us strong. If a person running a business just has expertise in one area then eventully that will limit how much business he can get. But if he has people with multiple areas of expertise then the amount of business that they can go after will increase accordingly. What we mean by unity is that even though your approach to Islamic work might be different, the Imam that you follow might be different, you are there to help your brother when your brother is in need; that is unity.

 

We need Allah’s help. Let us ask Allah for guidance and work for it. It is true we are surrounded by Gog and Magog as enemies and many of them are unknown to us but Allah is Sufficient as a Helper.

Allah has full knowledge of your enemies, and Allah is Sufficient as a Wali (Protector), and Allah is Sufficient as a Helper. (Qur’an 4:45)

…………………………………………………………………………………………….

TO THOSE MUSLIMS WHO CALL THEMSELVES BY CERTAIN NAMES – DON’T BE PART OF BRINGING IN THE DAJJAL IN PERSON

Believe it or not; identifying yourself with a certain group/sect creates disunity rather than unity. Since sects have already been formed and we as Muslims have to remind each other wisely; we Muslims in the end must stand with the truth.

Therefore remind (men) in case the reminder profits (them). The reminder will be received by him who fears (Allah), but it will be avoided by the wretched. (Qur’an 87:9-11)

O Messenger! Proclaim (the Message) which has been sent down to you from your Lord. And if you do not, then you have not conveyed His Messege. Allah will protect you from mankind. Verily, Allah guides not the people who disbelieve. (Qur’an 5:67)

We must not be gullible in thinking that tolerating falsehood will ensure unity. Being Muslim is about being with the Truth right?

And say: “Truth has come and Batil (falsehood) has vanished. Surely! Batil is ever bound to vanish.” (Qur’an 17:81)

Even when Prophet Muhammad (SAW) was alive; he always carried out the truth. For example if a thief stole and was discovered; the hand would be cut off and he said he would do the same to his daughter Fatma if she too would steal. This is what it means in carrying out the truth in (Qur’an 5:38). If Prophet Muhammad (SAW) said this about a Muslim who is his beloved daughter and one of the four best women; do you think any of us can compromise the truth because one is a Muslim?

Cut off (from the wrist joint) the (right) hand of the theif, male or female, as a recompense for that which they committed, a punishment by way of example from Allah. And Allah is All-Powerful, All-Wise. (Qur’an 5:38)

If you hate any Ayat from the Qur’an that is enough to render all your deeds fruitless. Check out (Qur’an 47:8-9) and (Qur’an 47:25-28).

But those who disbelieve, for them is destruction, and (Allah) will make their deeds vain. That is because they hate that which Allah has sent down (this Qur’an and Islamic laws, etc.), so He has made their deeds fruitless. (Qur’an 47:8-9)

Verily, those who have turned back as disbelievers after the guidance has been manifested to them, Satan has beautified for them (their false hopes), and (Allah) prolonged their term. That is because they said to those who hate what Allah has sent down: “We will obey you in part of the matter,” but Allah knows their secrets. Then how (will it be) when the angels will take their souls at death, smiting their faces and their backs? That is because they followed that which angered Allah, and hated that which pleased Him. So He made their deeds fruitless. (Qur’an 47:25-28)

We are supposed to invite with wisdom as (Qur’an 16:125) states. Whatever sort of wisdom you use, you must always aim at telling the truth.

If you use the method Ibrahim used in (Qur’an 6:76-79) then don’t forget to stick with the truth as he did in (Qur’an 6:80-83); don’t forget that Ibrahim was doing this as a believer as can be seen in (Qur’an 6:75) before he started addressing the people. But we advise one thing about this method of dawah Ibrahim used; consult an experience and knowledgeable scholar to guide you on how to do this to prevent unnecessary harms.

Invite to the Way of your Lord and fair preaching, and argue with them in a way that is better. Truly, your Lord knows best who has gone astray from His Path, and He is Best Aware of those who are guided. (Qur’an 16:125)

Now since we know Gog and Magog normally aim at creating sects and are assisting to bring about the Dajjal. How about we remind ourselves  as Muslims what Prophet Muhammad (SAW) said about those who will help the Dajjal so that we can reflect and possibly even avoid being amongst those who assist the Dajjal.

Where will the Dajjal emerge from? He will emerge from Isfahan and appear on the way between Syria and Iraq. We will focus on the emergence of the Dajjal from Isfahan. Using this article as a case study; please use it to study on how he will appear on the way between Syria and Iraq.

An-Nawwas b. Sam`an reported that Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) made a mention of the Dajjal one day in the morning. He (ﷺ) sometimes described him to be insignificant and sometimes described (his turmoil) as very significant (and we felt) as if he were in the cluster of the date-palm trees. When we went to him (to the Holy Prophet) in the evening and he read (the signs of fear) in our faces, he (ﷺ) said: ………He who amongst you would survive to see him should recite over him the opening verses of Sura Kahf. He would appear on the way between Syria and Iraq and would spread mischief right and left.….. [Sahih Muslim 2937 a]

Abu Bakr al-Siddeeq (RA) said: “The Messenger of Allah (PBUH) told us: “The Dajjal will emerge from a land in the east called Khurasaan.” (Narrated by al-Tirmidhi, no. 2163. Classed as saheeh by al-Albaani, Saheeh al-Jaami’ al-Sagheer, hadith 3398)

Anas (RA) said: “The Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said: “The Dajjal will emerge from among the jews of Isfahan, and with him will be seventy thousand jews, wearing crowns.” (Narrated by Ahmad. No. 12865).

 

Now where is Isfahan in which the Dajjal will emerge. Isfahan is in Iran. But how come the Dajjal will arrive from Iran? Iran is a Muslim country, right?  Checking the population of the jews in Isfahan might be necessary. There were many jews in Isfahan but they migrated to Israel after it was formed. Isfahan has the nuclear plants and reactors of Iran.

handshake

Now here is an amazing fact. Do you Mohammad Khatami who was a former president of Iran; you see him interacting with a Isfahani jewish rabbi in Iran. And the jews were asked to move out of Iran, they were told, “Why don’t you go and settle in Israel, you claim that Israel is your land then why don’t you go and settle there?”. These jews said, “No, we don’t want to go to Israel and we don’t want to settle there because Isfahan is our holy land.” That is what they claim. [Source: AbuTalha Zahack] [We IARLG have tried finding where the jews say they don’t want to settle in Israel because Isfahan is their holy land but we couldn’t find it. We however did find sources which shows that the Iranian jews have no intention of leaving as can be seen below.]

“We are not tenants in this country. We are Iranians, and we have been for 30 centuries,” Ciamak Morsadegh, the Iranian Jewish parliamentarian, told Rezaian last year. “There is a distinction between us as Jews and Israel,” added a shopkeeper in the historic city of Isfahan. “We consider ourselves Iranian Jews, and it has nothing to do with Israel whatsoever. This is the country we love.”

Iran’s Jews on life inside Israel’s ‘enemy state': ‘We feel secure and happy’

Despite its often turbulent dealings with Israel, Iran has one of the world’s largest and longest-established Jewish communities – and it’s growing. Kim Sengupta reports from Tehran on their intriguing relationship with the country’s establishment

Morsadegh, a 50-year-old hospital surgeon, is one of the candidates who benefited in the liberal swing to get re-elected. He is the only Jew in the Iranian parliament, the Majlis, winning the seat reserved for the Jewish community against two other candidates. “The fact is, Iran is a place where Jews feel secure and we are happy to be here,” he says. “We are proud to be Iranian. I know this doesn’t follow the Zionist script, but this is the reality.”

But are his expressions of patriotism and castigation of Israel intended to ensure self-preservation in the Islamic Republic? “No one forces the Jews to stay here,” says Morsadegh, a large figure, full of energy, at his office in the Sapir Medical Centre in Tehran. “The Israelis offer money to Jewish people to emigrate to Israel, but we choose to stay. My view is that the actions of Netanyahu and his government, the way they behave towards the Palestinians, cause problems for Jews everywhere. I am not the only one holding these views.

ADVICE ABOUT THE DAJJAL TO THOSE WHO MUSLIMS WHO CALL THEMSELVES SHIA

Source: Abu Talha Zahack’s lecture

I think we all know about this 12th imam of those who call themselves shia. The ones who call themselves shia believe in 12 imams, right? Who is the 12th imam of those who call themselves shias? Those who call themselves shia call the 12th imam as Imam Mahdi but that is not imam Mahdi. That is someone else.

Here are some evidences from shia books from which the scholars who call themselves shia scholars say that Imam Mahdi will be speaking Hebrew language.

Abu Abduallah [as] reported: “When the Imam Mahdi calls out, he will supplicate to God in Hebrew.” [Shiite source: Al-Ghaybaa of an Numani, page: 326]

Prophet Muhammad (SAW) says that Imam Mahdi will be speaking Arabic yet those who call themselves shia scholars claim he will be speaking Hebrew language which is the language of Jews.

Abduallah [as] has reported: “There will appear along with Imam Mahdi in Kufa, 27 people from the tribe of Moses, and seven from the people of the cave,….” [Al-Irshaad of al-mufeed at Tusi p.402]

It indicates that Jews will be assisting Imam Mahdi. Why will Jews assist Imam Mahdi while Imam Mahdi will be amongst the Muslims?

Table

So these are some of the striking similarities between those jews and those Muslims who call themselves shia.

Jews believe in Hamsa (Palm). And they wear this and believe it to be divine and say that this is the hand of Miriam. Who is Miriam? The sister of Musa (Moses).

And those who call themselves shias also believe in Hamsa and they believe this hand to be the hand of Fatma. They call it alam, panja something.

shias shias1 shias2

So the panja is called by the jews as the hand of Miriam and it is called by those Muslims who refer to themselves as shias as the hand of Fatma.

So it is clear by all these evidences that when the Dajjal comes out he will be assisted by not only the jews but amongst many others including the Muslims who refer to themselves as shias.

 

AN EXTRACT FROM THE EYES WIDE OPEN SERIES TO LEARN MORE

The mission of the Rafidi Shia Mahdi (Dajjal):

“…..Mahdi will resurrect then CRUCIFY and KILL Abu Bakr and Omar, 1000 times every day and night…..”

(Bihar Al-Anwar by the Shi’ite scholar Al-Majlisi)

“….When the Twelvth Imam returns, he will bring Aisha to life so as to torment her…”

(Hayat Al-Quloob by the Shi’te scholar Al-Majlisi)

IARLG’s comments: These are weak narrations and are out of context. They also go against the Qur’an and Sunnah.  In (Qur’an 9:100) we find that Allah is pleased not only Abu Bakr and Omar but also the other companions (Muhajirun) who were the first to embrace Islam and migrated from Mecca to Madina and the Ansar (citizens of Madina who helped and gave aid to the Muhajirun). In (Qur’an 33:6) we are informed the wives of the Prophet (SAW) are our mothers since they are the mothers of the believers. Can a believer speak about his mother in such a way?

He will rule according to the Sharia of the Jews…

“When the Mahdi of the household of the prophet appears, he will rule according to the rule of DAVID and SOLOMON”

(Al-Kafi)

Rafidah Mahdi will speak Hebrew…

“When the Imam Mahdi calls out, he will supplicate to God in HEBREW.”

(Al-Ghaybaa of Al-Numani, p.326)

The JEWS will also be the followers of Shia’s “Imam Mahdi”:

“There will appear along with Imam Mahdi…people from the tribe of Moses.”

(Al-Irshaad of al-mufeed)

The Hidden Rafidi Imam learns from a book called al-Jafr, which contains the knowledge from the Israelites (Jews):

(Al-Kafi, Hadith 635, Ch. 40, h 1)

According to the twelve Shi’ism, their “Qaem” (Mahdi) will:

  1. Rule according to the system of the family of David, using the Talmud
  2. His language will be Hebrew
  3. His followers will be of the Jews and Israelites, for he is the king of the Jews
  4. The Hidden Imam takes from the Talmud which is contained, and rules according to the Sharia of the Israelites,

 

IARLG’s comment: If you are shocked about how this sects of Muslims who call themselves shia can believe and act on teachings which go against the Quran then look at those who claim to be Christians and claim to follow the Bible yet they don’t follow the laws in the Bible which goes against their desires. In the Bible, Saturday is the day of worship but they worship on Sundays as they have been told by their leaders just like a certain group. No to lunar calendars, usury is okay, swine is okay to eat are further examples of not following the Bible. Humans really are fascinatingly and amusingly weird; may Allah safeguard us from this hypocrisy. Instead of stating that they don’t want to follow the Quran and Bible they hide behind covers.

Let us know examine Sunnah in regards to the Jewish Dajjal, THE Antichrist:

The Prophet said Allah will grant the Muslims victory over the Dajjal and the Muslims will kill him and his SHIA….

(Musnad Imam Ahmad #5099)

The question arises here: Why didn’t the Prophet not say “Atbaa” or followers instead of “SHIA” or partisans? They were actually called Rafidah in the past but now they are called SHIA, and the Prophet doesn’t speak of his own!

The Prophet said, “To every Ummah there is a magian (MAJOOS) and the magian of this Ummah are those who reject the Qadr [pre-destination]. If anyone amongst them dies do not attend their funeral, and if anyone amongst thembecomes sick don’t visit them, they ARE THE SHIA OF DAJJAL and it is the right of Allah to join them with the Dajjal.”

(Sunan Abi Dawoud #4072)

Note:

The Rafidah twelve Shia reject the concept of pre-destination and instead adopted the Mutazalite (heretical) school of thought which shuns Qadr. And who are the descendants of the MAJOOS other than the Shia who are heavily influenced by Persian culture (Nowrooz etc.)

The Shia ask Allah to hasten the coming of their Hidden Imam who is hidden somewhere.

Note:

From hadith we learn that the Jewish Dajjal is locked up and in Bukhari we know that some of his features may be hidden.

The Dajjal will be followed by 70,000 Jews of Isfahan (IRAN), having on themselves Persian shawls.”

[Sahih Muslim #5227]

Question: What makes the Dajjal to go to Isfahan as it is a Shiite land and why is the involvement of the Jews in a Shiite city? Is this is a coincidence?

It is well recorded that the DAJJAL will be worshipped by some people. He will make some “wonders” (devils will help him) and the people will take him as their Lord!

As it is already clear, the extremist Rafidah Shias already put their WISHES and DUAS (WORSHIP) ro their “Mahdi”!

Who will follow the DAJJAL and mistakenly believe him to be the Mahdi? No doubt those, who already have exaggerated with their “Mahdi” in a manner, that they supplicate to him, ask him for Rizq, fertility, health etc.

IARLG’s comments: There are many other blasphemous things that have been mentioned and done by those Muslims who call themselves Shias if you compare it with the Quran and Sunnah. Our job is to remind so that you don’t fall in the nation of kufr; the nation of the Dajjal.

Nation of kufr is one

All these will most likely follow the Dajjal since they are all somewhat associated with trinity, the sun worship behind the head, the 25th December craze and the like. Allah sent Messengers to guide us to Him but not to worship them (Messengers).

Surely, the religion is for Allah only. And those who take Auliya (protectors and helpers) beside Him (say): “We worship them only that they may bring us near to Allah.” Verily, Allah will judge between them concerning that wherein they differ. Truly, Allah guides not him who is a liar, and a disbeliever. (Qur’an 39:3)

And verily, among them is a party who distort the Book with their tongues (as they read), so that you may think it is from the Book, but it is not from the Book, and they say: “This is from Allah,” but it is not from Allah; and they speak a lie against Allah while they know it. (Qur’an 3:78)

It is not (possible) for any human being to whom Allah has given the Book and Al-Hukma (the knowledge and understanding of the laws of religion, etc) and Prophethood to say to the people: “Be my worshippers rather than Allah’s.” On the contrary (he would say): “Be you Rabbaniyun (learned men of religion who practice what they know and also preach others), because you are teaching the Book, and you are studying it.” (Qur’an 3:79)

Nor would he order you to take angels and Prophets for lords (gods). Would he order you to disbelieve after you have submitted to Allah’s Will? (Qur’an 3:80)

THE REALITY OF THE FRENCH REVOLUTION AND DAJJAL’S PHILOSOPHY

Source: http://antimasons.8m.com/history.htm

In 1904 Mark CredoRassambo, a Freemason said before a packed audience: “FreeMasonry has worked in a hidden but constant manner to prepare the revolution.  We are then in complete agreement that the FreeMasonry was the only author of the revolution & the applause that I receive from the left & to which I am little accustomed approves gentlemen that you have to acknowldge with me that it was Freemasonry which made the French Revolution.”

 

IARLG’s comment: Do you know who really fought Salahuddin Ayoobi? Do you think it was the Crusaders? It was the Knight Templers who are also known as the illuminati, freemasons etc. Those were not Christians; they had this outlook of Christians but they were actually Knight Templers. You can analyze and research further.

The French revolution was the doing of the freemasons and that later brought about the “Declaration of the Rights of Man and of the Citizen”. Keep in mind that there were two “Declaration of the Rights of Man and of the Citizen”. One for 1789 and the other for 1793:

 

“Declaration of the Rights of Man and of the Citizen” of 1789

declaration

 

“Declaration of the Rights of Man and of the Citizen” of 1793

Declaration of the Rights of Man and Citizen of 1793

As you can see both of them have the all-seeing eye of the Dajjal presented on the top as a leader which should act as further proof that the all-seeing eye of the Dajjal in the first “Declaration of the Rights of Man and of the Citizen” was not placed by accident but was placed intentionally because they ensured it was also placed in the second declaration at the top again.

The Declaration of the Rights of Man and Citizen of 1793 was a second declaration written in 1793 but never formally adopted. Now after taking note of this French revolution let us have a look at the Iranian revolution.

 

 

THE IRANIAN REVOLUTION; Source: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Iranian_Revolution

The Iranian Revolution (also known as the Islamic Revolution or the 1979 Revolution; refers to events involving the overthrow of the Pahlavi dynasty under Mohammad Reza Shah Pahlavi, who was supported by the United States and its eventual replacement with an Islamic republic under the Grand Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, the leader of the revolution, supported by various leftist and Islamist organizations and Iranian student movements.

Demonstrations against the Shah commenced in October 1977, developing into a campaign of civil resistance that included both secular and religious elements and which intensified in January 1978. Between August and December 1978 strikes and demonstrations paralyzed the country. The Shah left Iran for exile on January 16, 1979, as the last Persian monarch, leaving his duties to a regency council and an opposition-based prime minister. Ayatollah Khomeini was invited back to Iran by the government, and returned to Tehran to a greeting by several million Iranians. The royal reign collapsed shortly after on February 11 when guerrillas and rebel troops overwhelmed troops loyal to the Shah in armed street fighting, bringing Khomeini to official power. Iran voted by national referendum to become an Islamic Republic on April 1, 1979, and to approve a new theocratic-republican constitution whereby Khomeini became Supreme Leader of the country, in December 1979.

The revolution was unusual for the surprise it created throughout the world: it lacked many of the customary causes of revolution (defeat at war, a financial crisis, peasant rebellion, or disgruntled military), occurred in a nation that was enjoying relative prosperity, produced profound change at great speed, was massively popular, resulted in the exile of many Iranians, and replaced a pro-Western semi-absolute monarchy with an anti-Western authoritarian theocracy based on the concept of Guardianship of the Islamic Jurists (or velayat-e faqih). It was a relatively non-violent revolution, and helped to redefine the meaning and practice of modern revolutions (although there was violence in its aftermath).

Its outcome – an Islamic Republic “under the guidance of a religious scholar from Qom” – was, as one scholar put it, “clearly an occurrence that had to be explained”

Khomeini moves to the West

Hoping to break Khomeini’s contacts with the opposition, the Shah pressured the Iraqi government to expel him from Najaf. Khomeini left Iraq, instead moving to a house bought by Iranian exiles in Neauphle-le-Château, a village near Paris, France. The Shah hoped that Khomeini would be cut off from the mosques of Najaf and be cut off from the protest movement. Instead, the plan backfired badly. With superior French telephone and postal connections (compared to Iraqi ones), his supporters flooded Iran with tapes and recordings of his sermons.

Worse for the Shah, the Western media, especially the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC), immediately put Khomeini into the spotlight. Khomeini rapidly became a household name in the west, portraying himself as an “Eastern mystic” who did not seek power, but instead sought to “free” his people from “oppression”. The normally critical western media rapidly became a docile tool in Khomeini’s hands.

In addition, the media coverage eroded the influence of other, more moderate clergy such as Ayatollah Shariatmadari and Ayatollah Taleghani. The BBC itself later issued a statement admitting to having a “critical” disposition to the Shah, saying that its broadcasts helped to “change the collective perception of the population.”

In November, secular National Front leader Karim Sanjabi flew to Paris to meet Khomeini. There the two signed an agreement for a draft constitution that would be “Islamic and democratic”. It signaled the now official alliance between the clergy and the secular opposition. In order to help create a democratic facade, Khomeini placed Westernized figures (such as Sadegh Qotbzadeh and Ebrahim Yazdi) as the public spokesmen of the opposition, and never spoke to the media of his intentions to create a theocracy.

Political thought and legacy of Ruhollah Khomeini Source: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Political_thought_and_legacy_of_Ruhollah_Khomeini#Democracy

Whether Khomeini’s ideas are compatible with democracy and whether he intended the Islamic Republic to be democratic is disputed. Notable Iranians who believe he did not include Mohammad Taghi Mesbah Yazdi (a senior cleric and main theorist of Iranian ultraconservatives who opposes democracy), Akbar Ganji (a pro-democracy activist and writer who is against Islamic government) and Abdolkarim Soroush (an Iranian philosopher in exile), according to Reza Parsa writing in the state-run Aftab News. Other followers of Khomeini who believe he did support democracy and that the Islamic Republic is democratic include Ali Khamenei, Mohammad Khatami and Morteza Motahhari.

Khomeini preached for theocratic rule by jurists, but did not completely disavow “democracy”, making statements at different times indicating both support and opposition to it. For example, telling a huge crowd of Iranians a month after his return to Iran, “Do not use this term, `democratic.` That is the Western style,`”

One explanation for this contradiction is what Khomeini meant by “democracy.” According to scholar Shaul Bakhash, it’s highly unlikely Khomeini defined the term to mean “a Western parliamentary democracy” when he told others he wanted Iran to be democratic. Khomeini believed that the huge turnout of Iranians in anti-Shah demonstrations during the revolution meant that Iranians had already voted in a `referendum` for an Islamic republic, and that in Muslim countries Islam and Islamic law,

truly belong to the people. In contrast, in a republic or a constitutional monarchy, most of those claiming to be representatives of the majority of the people will approve anything they wish as law and then impose it on the entire population.

In drawing up the constitution of his Islamic Republic, he and his supporters agreed to include Western-democratic elements, such as an elected parliament and president, but some argue he believed Islamic elements, not Western-style elected parliaments and presidents, should prevail in government. After the ratifying of the Islamic constitution he told an interviewer that the constitution in no way contradicted democracy because the `people love the clergy, have faith in the clergy, and want to be guided by the clergy` and that it was right that Supreme Leader oversee the work of the non-clerical officials `to make sure they don’t make mistakes or go against the law and the Quran.’

As the revolution was consolidated terms like “democracy” and “liberalism” – considered praiseworthy in the West – became words of criticism, while “revolution” and “revolutionary” were terms of praise.

Still another scholar, non-Iranian Daniel Brumberg, argues that Khomeini’s statements on politics were simply not “straightforward, coherent, or consistent,” and that in particular he contradicted his writings and statements on the primacy of the rule of the jurist with repeated statements on the importance of the leading role of the parliament, such as `the Majlis heads all affairs`, and `the majlis is higher than all the positions which exist in the country. This, according to Brumberg, has created a legacy where his followers “exploited these competing notions of authority” to advance “various agendas of their own.” Reformist seizing on his statements about the importance majlis, and theocrats on those of rule by the clergy.

Over the decades since the revolution Iran has not evolved towards a more liberal representative democratic system as some reformists and democrats had predicted, nor has theocratic rule of Islamic jurists spread to other countries as its founder had hoped.

 

WHAT CAN BE LEARNED AND DEDUCED FROM THE IRANIAN REVOLUTION

Could this revolution have had anything to do with the Dajjal and his top members of Gog and Magog? Let us see:

Last week we explained how the top members of Gog and Magog play with people’s minds. This goes back to show the importance of followers knowing their roles.

Iran was under the control of the tops of Gog and Magog indirectly. We say indirectly because the United States of America supported Shar and his Pahlavi dynasty.

Ayatollah Sayyid Ruhollah Mūsavi Khomeini was in France for 4 months during the Iranian Revolution in 1979, before taking control of Iranian government. This leads to serious questions that why the French government which has been proactive in Crusades against Muslims provided Asylum to Khomeini during Iranian Revolution.

The answer can be seen when the revolution ended:

The Constitution of the Islamic Republic of Iran was adopted by referendum on 2 and 3 December 1979, and went into force replacing the Constitution of 1905. It was amended on 28 July 1989. The constitution has been called a “hybrid” of “theocratic and democratic elements”. While articles One and Two vest sovereignty in God, article six “mandates popular elections for the presidency and the Majlis, or parliament.” However all democratic procedures and rights are subordinate to the Guardian Council and the Supreme Leader, whose powers are spelled out in Chapter Eight (Articles 107-112).

If you remember our article from last week you will remember that the main aim of the Dajjal was to ensure everyone is ruled by a democratic manmade constitution. Since this democracy system came from France from the French revolution and America are implementing it to the nth degree we can conclude that the Iranian revolution was planned to discard Shar as a pawn and make the people of Iran to accept minor elements of democracy over complete monarchy (which is also not good). Why would a leader who took refuge in France lead Iran after the revolution in a somewhat democratic manner?

We analyzed this issue of democracy in Iran and found it to be unclear. The supreme leader only has to ensure that the next supreme leader and list of presidential candidates holds the same views of the tops of Gog and Magog.

 

Article by Michael J. Totten; No, Iran is Not a Democracy; Source:http://www.worldaffairsjournal.org/blog/michael-j-totten/no-iran-not-democracy

He starts by saying that Iran is confusing because it has “an unelected Supreme Leader at the top” and a president who is chosen in “far from perfect” elections. “So is Iran a dictatorship, or is it a democracy?” he asks before answering, “as it turns out, it’s both.”

No, it’s not. Max Fisher answered the question correctly before he answered it.

The head of state isn’t elected.

And his description of the elections as “far from perfect” is the kind of condescending euphemism that’s only ever used to describe somebody else’s problems.

Let’s leave aside the blatant vote-stealing in Iran’s 2009 presidential election, when Mahmoud Ahmadinejad was declared the winner in districts that opposed him as overwhelmingly as San Francisco opposes Dick Cheney. Nevermind that disgraceful episode.

Elections in Iran are rigged even when they aren’t rigged.

Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei hand-picks everybody who runs for president. Moderates are rejected routinely. Only the less-moderate of the moderates—the ones who won’t give Khamenei excessive heartburn if they win—are allowed to run at all. Liberal and leftist candidates are rejected categorically.

Imagine Dick Cheney as the overlord of America allowing us to choose which one of his friends will be in the co-pilot’s seat. That’s not democracy. That’s not even a fake democracy.

The Iranian system is worse, though. The president isn’t even the co-pilot.

He’s not quite a figurehead. He can tinker with a few things around the edges. But the country is run by the unelected Supreme Leader, the Guardian Council, and the Revolutionary Guard Corps, which is officially designated as a terrorist organization.

Fisher thinks the upcoming election may be a game-changer, though, because the so-called Assembly of Experts is an elected body, it will choose the next Supreme Leader, and the current Supreme Leader acknowledges that he’s likely to die soon. Therefore, if “moderates” win the election, the next Supreme Leader will almost certainly be a moderate.

That would be great. Really, it would. I’d pop a champagne cork. Iran would still be a dictatorship/democracy hybrid in Fisher’s formulation, but at least it would be a less extreme one. It could be like post-Maoist China, perhaps, or post-Soviet Russia. Unfree, but no longer totalitarian. It would be progress. No doubt about it.

But “moderates” in the Iranian regime aren’t moderate by any objective international definition. Everyone who gets to run in the election for the Assembly of Expert will be hand-picked by the Supreme Leader. And every single one of them will be an Islamic theologian. That’s what the Assembly of Experts is. A theocratic institution of Islamic theologians.

None of the “experts” are atheists. None of them are secularists. None of them are agnostic. None of them are liberals under any conceivable definition of the word liberal. Certainly none of them are Christians, Jews or Baha’is. They’re all Islamic theologians or they wouldn’t even be in the Assembly of Experts.

So let’s run another thought experiment here. Let’s say Christian fundamentalist Pat Robertson is the dictator-for-life in America. He’s more powerful than the White House. We get to vote for the president even though he isn’t our head of state, but Pat Robertson decides all by himself who’s on the ballot. And he chooses Rick Santorum, Mike Huckabee, Ted Cruz and Ben Carson. Those are our options.

Meanwhile, Marco Rubio is unemployed, Hillary Clinton is under house arrest and Bernie Sanders is languishing in an orange jumpsuit at the Camp X-ray prison in Guantanamo Bay. Liberal activists who complain in the streets vanish into dungeons forever.

Meanwhile, Pat Robertson is going to die soon, so he hand-picks hundreds of Evangelical Christians that we get to vote for or against. The winner will choose who replaces him.

Does that sound even remotely like a democracy? Like a system that has authoritarian elements alongside democratic elements?

Not to me, it doesn’t. And I’d bet my bottom dollar that Max Fisher wouldn’t think so either if he had to live in such a distorted version of America. He’d call it fascist, or something similar, and he would be right.

Vox uploaded the video to Facebook as well as to YouTube, and the comments are overwhelmingly hostile. Huge numbers of Iranian grownups are chiming in and schooling the Vox kids. It’s fascinating and educational—hopefully for Max Fisher as well as the rest of us.

 

WHAT WILL THE PRETENDING GAME IN IRAN LEAD TO?

These guys (Gog and Magog) don’t stop there. The rulers of Iran pretend to speak against America & Israel and seem to treat them like an enemy.  These Iran supreme leaders and presidents are most likely undercover masons fooling the world, especially innocent Muslims with Anti-American and Anti-Israeli slogans, even though they are the advocates of the Dajjal considering they still maintain minor elements of democracy.

Sayyid Ali Khamenei, the second Supreme Leader of Iran: It is not an illusion but a reality. Today, the arrogant governments of the world like the colonialist governments of the 19th and early 20th centuries opened their mouths wide so they could swallow any place that expands their wealth and increases their power. The greater middle east plan, which was planned by the gang that controls America and is managed thoroughly by the Zionists – what does this mean? The middle east is a rich region and the desire to swallow it does not let them rest. They are planning on swallowing it, but they cannot. This portion will get stuck in their throat and choke them. {the crowd then screams Allah Akbar }

We saw an example of pretending of a Supreme leader, let us see another example is of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad He the sixth president of Iran. Why was an Iranian President being shown in CNN {one of America’s well known channel}?  He is shown saying a lot of things against America and Israel. Do the tops of Gog and Magog benefit if they go out of their way to have the leaders of America and Israel to be talked down by the leader of Iran? The corrupt media should have covered up this sort of news but they still allowed it to be aired (live).

This is just one transcript and interview in CNN. There are many others that show that they go out of their way to present to the world the view that Iran (representing Muslims) is against America and Israel and vice versa.

CNN LARRY KING LIVE, Encore: Interview with Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, Aired June 14, 2009 – 21:00   ET; [http://edition.cnn.com/TRANSCRIPTS/0906/14/lkl.01.html]

KING: OK. One of the big fears the United States has — the world has about Iran — is nuclear weapons.

Can you tell us what you’re doing with regard to them?

Are you building them?

What’s the status of your country and nuclear weapons?

AHMADINEJAD (THROUGH TRANSLATOR): You’ve raised, in fact, three issues.

The first is that you say that the world is afraid of Iran and concerned about it.

I ask you, which part of the world are we speaking of?

Is it the case that the U.S. government is the equivalent of the entire world and makes the case for that world?

Is it the case that the U.S. government and a few of its allies can be considered as the whole world?

No.

KING: All right. The Western…

AHMADINEJAD (THROUGH TRANSLATOR): Not really.

Let me tell you — well, you see, if you’re talking about the Western states, I have to say, their concerns about us are not new. They’ve always been concerned. They were the ones who inspired Saddam to attack Iran and to get us involved in an eight-year war. The terrorist groups that killed our president, prime minister, our officials, are now freely active in the Western countries.

But let me tell you, 118 member states of the NAM, the Non- Aligned Movement, have actually supported our peaceful nuclear pursuits. Fifty-seven member states of the Organization of Islamic States have also given their support to us in this regard. And there are many other organizations — multilateral organizations that have supported our endeavor and efforts.

So it’s not the world exactly that’s concerned about us. So — and that’s really the first point I have to clarify.

The second point is regarding the question of the bomb. We believe, as a matter of religious teaching, that we must be against any form of weapons of mass destruction, including nuclear weapons. The production and the usage of nuclear weapons is one of the most abhorrent acts to our eyes.

In addition, we also believe that the atomic bomb has lost its use in political affairs, in fact. The time for a nuclear bomb has ended. Whoever who invests in it is going the wrong way.

Was a nuclear bomb able to help keep the Soviet Union intact and prevent its downfall?

Was it able to bring victory for the United States either in Afghanistan or Iraq?

Can it be used to that end?

Can the nuclear bomb save the Zionist regime?

The time for bombs of that nature has ended. It is a time of thought, a time for culture and reason to prevail.

There’s also a third debate in the nuclear issue. We are all aware that, in fact, the nuclear issue regarding Iran is a highly politicized one. It is, in fact, purely politicized. It’s not a legal battle at all.

The IAEA has visited — has mentioned, in fact, more than 12 times in its documents and verified that Iran’s nuclear activities are of a peaceful nature. The agency has said that they have, in fact, not detected any noncompliance or deviation on the part of Iran.

So I’d like to add that all our activities in that realm are completely legal and peaceful.

KING: So you are open for inspection to anyone who wants to inspect?

Just — that would take all the fears away, if you’d just let the United States or any — any international body look in.

AHMADINEJAD (THROUGH TRANSLATOR): The largest number of inspections in the history of the IAEA has been done with the country of Iran. We have offered the IAEA the largest number of documents in its history. No country in the world has cooperated with the agency as much as Iran has done.

And that’s verified.

But I’d like to ask you, at the same, that there are countries who have nuclear weapons arsenals and are actually developing a new age nuclear warfare.

Should they not be inspected, as well?

Don’t you think that their activities should be brought to an end, as well?

Who exactly is the threat?

Us working with the IAEA, with their supervision mechanisms, whilst the IAEA has also said that they have not found any documentation that would say that Iran has deviated from the peaceful path or really those who are now developing the fourth and fifth generation of nuclear weapons and have historically, in fact, used the nuclear weapons.

KING: Well…

AHMADINEJAD (THROUGH TRANSLATOR): Don’t you think the Zionist regime needs some inspections, as well?

I mean isn’t that a dual standard?

(END VIDEO TAPE)

KING: Up next, when Iran’s president is asked about his comment saying Israel should be wiped off the map, did he really mean it?

Find out, when we return.

(COMMERCIAL BREAK)

(BEGIN VIDEOTAPE)

(VIDEO CLIP)

KING: We’re back.

Mr. President, you mentioned the Zionist regime. You’ve called — I want to be correct on this — you’ve called for Israel to be wiped off the map. Now, since you say that you are a peaceful nation, you don’t mean militarily.

Do you mean politically wiped off the map?

What do you mean?

AHMADINEJAD (THROUGH TRANSLATOR): I think that I have to elaborate on two points here. Today marks, in fact, the fourth year of my — that I visited in New York City. And the questions that are being asked of me are the same questions that were asked four years ago, whereas the world, in fact, has undergone tremendous changes and many developments have unfolded since in the United States, in Europe and everywhere else around the world. These developments are new.

I have responded to this question many times before. The fact that we oppose the fundamentals of the Zionist regime is because of peace and justice. We seek a viable peace.

Perhaps as a journalist who has years of experience, you must be aware of what goes on in the Middle East, the extent of the calamity, in other words.

For over 60 years, more than five million Palestinian have been displaced — people who were forced out of their homes.

And those who have stayed are being bombarded every day militarily. They are being killed in their homes at times. Women and children at times are besieged. And medicine, water and food does not always reach them sufficiently. Children lose their lives, as do women, as a result, at times. Sometimes women die giving birth. Palestinian figures are assassinated and it goes to such extent that it’s actually announced beforehand.

Three big wars started by the Zionist regime, the last of which was in 2006, when they attacked Lebanon.

So when will this calamity — this catastrophe end?

Our solution is a humanitarian one.

KING: How?

AHMADINEJAD (THROUGH TRANSLATOR): What we say is that in the Palestinian territory, there must be a free referendum and the Palestinian people should determine their own fate. This is the spirit and the letter of the Charter of the United Nations.

I’d ask you — I’d like to ask you, really, how is it possible to force out a people of one land and then gather other people from around the world and let them sit and live in the homes of others and establish a government?

There’s really a logic that is unacceptable.

What are the Palestinians to do?

KING: Why…

AHMADINEJAD (THROUGH TRANSLATOR): The world community that the United States claims to speak for, how come does not embody the voices of the Palestinians?

KING: Why …

AHMADINEJAD (THROUGH TRANSLATOR): Sixty years of displacement.

KING: Would you agree — and there are obviously disagreements here — would you agree to sit down with all of the people of the Middle East, Israel included, to work at some solutions?

You don’t want harmful solutions. You don’t want bombs. You don’t want to obliterate a people. You want to do some things politically.

Why not sit down and talk, Israel included?

AHMADINEJAD (THROUGH TRANSLATOR): You see, the Zionist regime is an uninvited guest. It is an occupier. It is killing people…

KING: But if you don’t talk to them …

AHMADINEJAD (THROUGH TRANSLATOR): Allow me. Allow me.

I’d like to ask you, if someone comes and occupies the United States, as American people, would you give them any rights or would you force them out? KING: But the world declared it a state. Israel is — that’s a fact. You’re not going to change that fact. Israel is a state.

So all I’m asking is, why not get together now, states and states, and discuss your disagreements and hopefully come to some peace and bring about justice for Palestinians?

Why can’t you?

Israel — you’re not going to change that.

AHMADINEJAD (THROUGH TRANSLATOR): The apartheid regime of South Africa was a fact, as well.

Where is it today?

The Soviet Union was a fact, as well.

Where is it today?

Was the Soviet Union — did the Soviet Union collapse as a result of talks and dialogue or as a result of resilience — resistance, in other words.

At times, you have to resist. You see, over a hundred peace plans have been offered for the resolution of the Palestinian crisis and all of them have been defeated. None of them have given results.

Today, the head of the Palestinian Authority, the Egyptian leader, many others have negotiated with the Zionists many times.

But has there been result? Hundreds of meetings and negotiations…

KING: So then what…

AHMADINEJAD (THROUGH TRANSLATOR): What’s the result so far?

KING: OK. Therefore…

AHMADINEJAD (THROUGH TRANSLATOR): …except the expansion of the Zionist regime, the expansion of settlements, except for the escalation of tensions and terror and the killing of people. This regime is fundamentally illegal.

(END VIDEO TAPE)

Mahmoud Ahmadinejad also said the following in public: “Some people believe the Hidden Imam is living his life somewhere, without any concern for the problems of humanity. If this were the case, there would be no existence at all. Everything would be chaos. THE HIDDEN IMAM manages the affairs of the world.

If the President can say such shirk stuff in public we can only imagine the direction he is leading his people.

Do you know that World War 1 & 2 were planned by Gog and Magog? Do you know how they plan to start world war 3? The first and second world wars have already occurred. The third one is to be made in such a way the Zionist and Muslims crush each other. They want to justify this war when it occurs. We say when it occurs because this war was prophesized by Prophets.  Christians know this great war as Armageddon and Muslims know it as Malhama. When will it occur? We don’t know, but what we know is that it must occur before the Day of Resurrection because the Prophets said so.

We will not give out predictions of how this world war 3 will occur since we don’t know the unseen. Even Prophet Muhammad (SAW) does not know the unseen except what was given to him by Allah.

We will only follow inspiration which tells us via the Sunnah that the Dajjal is confusing but if we are confused we should know that our Lord is not one eyed. Meaning our Lord is not the democratic manmade constitution system which comes about from the Dajjal’s “Declaration of the Rights of Man and of the Citizen” of 1789.

To be safe; don’t trust any country with any democracy elements because there would a lot of pretending because it would be controlled by Gog and Magog by a large percentage even if not 100%. Don’t get us wrong; you have to be cautious but that doesn’t mean we stop giving them dawah since Gog and Magog are also from mankind who should be reminded of their Lord and perhaps they may fear and might even obey Him. We will explain more in our conclusion of this series.

Some evidences that Iran and American leaders are working together:

“When 4 American hostages were released from Iran in January, about $ 400,000,000 was flown into Tehran according to a new report. The wall street journal cites US and European officials and congressional staff who learned of the cargo plane bringing the millions into Iran after the fact. US officials deny that the cash was a ransom payment but say it was the first installment of $1.7 billion. The Obama administration agreed to pay Iran over a decades old failed arms deal. President Obama said at the time with the nuclear deal done, prisoners released the time is right to resolve this dispute as well. He did not mention the $ 400 million. The payment and the prisoners exchange happening at the same time was a coincidence according to senior US officials.” http://time.com/4441046/400-million-iran-hostage-history/ [Aug. 5, 2016]

 

The U.S. Sent Another $1.3 Billion to Iran After Hostages Were Released [Ian Mount ; SEPTEMBER 7, 2016, 5:26 AM EST] Source: http://fortune.com/2016/09/07/us-iran-billion-hostages-arms-deal/

The controversial $400 million payment that the U.S. sent to Iran in January, just as four American hostages were released—a planeload of Euros, Swiss Francs and other currencies—was only the first of three American cash deliveries to the country, the Obama administration reportedly told lawmakers on Tuesday.

During the 19 days following the first shipment, the U.S. sent two more planeloads of cash, totaling $1.3 billion, to Tehran, reports The Wall Street Journal. The two planeloads, which passed through Europe on Jan. 22 and Feb. 5, followed the same route as the earlier payment, a congressional aide who was briefed told the Journal. In the first payment, an Iranian cargo plane picked up the money in Geneva.

News of the additional payments are sure to generate controversy on Capitol Hill during a bitter election season that comes on the heels of the Obama administration’s nuclear deal with Iran. At the time of the first payment, Donald Trump and other Republicans said the payment amounted to ransom, a charge the Obama administration vehemently denied, although it later admitted that it had delayed giving Iran control of the cash until the American hostages had safely departed Tehran.

“We do not pay ransom for hostages. We’ve got a number of Americans being held around the world and I meet with their families and it’s heartbreaking,” President Obama said at the time. “But those families know that we have a policy that we don’t pay ransom.”

The Obama administration has maintained that the $400 million was the first part of $1.7 billion sum it had agreed to pay Iran to resolve a failed decades-old arms deal made with the government of the Shah of Iran, which had paid the Pentagon a $400 million deposit prior to the 1979 uprising {Iranian Revolution} that ousted him. The $400 million was for airplane parts, which were never delivered, the Journal reports.

According to Obama administration officials, the U.S. government worried that a tribunal set up in The Hague to resolve U.S.-Iran claims would have awarded Iran $4 billion or more, so the U.S. and Iran negotiated a deal that gave Iran the original $400 million plus $1.3 billion in interest. The two more recent payments would complete that initial $1.7 billion agreement.

Congressional Republicans are unconvinced by that explanation, however. On Tuesday, Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) introduced the No Ransom Payments Act, co-sponsored by 15 other Senate Republican lawmakers. The legislation would bar the U.S. from making future payments and try to reclaim the $1.7 billion already paid.

“President Obama’s disastrous nuclear deal with Iran was sweetened with an illicit ransom payment and billions of dollars for the world’s foremost state sponsor of terrorism,” Rubio said in a statement. “The U.S. government should not be in the business of negotiating with terrorists and paying ransom money in exchange for the release of American hostages. Doing so puts more Americans in danger, as President Obama himself admitted.”

 

IARLG comments on the evidences that Iran and American leaders are working together: Facts to pounder on are as follows: 

  • Total Federal Government Debt in 2017. At the end of FY 2017 the gross US federal government debt is estimated to be $19.5 trillion, according to the FY18 Federal Budget.
  • The leaders of Iran are Muslims right? Why did they receive the interest (riba) of $1.3 billion which came about from $ 400 million? Being Muslims leaders could they have overlooked (Qur’an 2:275-279) which warns them of eating riba and advises them to fear Allah and give up what remains of riba? We are not accusing Iran but the article clearly states that they negotiated with America to be paid this amount. All this goes to show how they are working together. We advise the Muslims in Iran and elsewhere in the world to go back to the Quran and Sunnah.
  • Instead of America paying their debt they pay their so-called enemies (leaders of Iran). Instead of America taking care of the poor and needy in their lands they pay their so-called enemies (leaders of Iran).
  • Do you see how America is controlled? If America was the true greatest country; then why are they in debt? Why can’t they just print more money and pay their debt? You need to ask yourselves these kinds of questions.

Shock and Awe… Ayatollah Khamenei Travels in Souped-Up Car to Make Him Look Saintly; by Jim Hoft Oct 14th, 2011 4:30 am

khamenei-car

Khamenei visited Western Kermanshah province this week. In January the Iranian regime installed a special lighting system in Ayatollah Sayyed Ali Khamenei’s car to make the old guy look like he has a saintly glow. Gooya News (http://news.gooya.com/didaniha/archives/2011/01/115650.php) reported:

khamenei-light

Yesterday Ayatollah Khamenei took his car out for a spin in the Western Kermanshah province.

khamenei-glow1

The new glow was a hit with the crowd.

[This looks like it was done on purpose; what is the point of doing all this? When Prophet Muhammad (SAW) and the 4 rightly guided Khalifas were leaders you could not tell them apart from the normal companions because of their simple lifestyle. They could not have done all this to show who the supreme leader is, because this guy has been in power ever since 1989 till now.]

Supreme Leader of Iran; Source: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Supreme_Leader_of_Iran

The Supreme Leader of Iran (Persian: rahbar-e iran), also called the Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution (rahbar-e mo’azzam-e enghelab-e eslami), officially in Iran, called the Supreme Leadership Authority (Persian), is the head of state and highest ranking political and religious authority in the Islamic Republic of Iran.

This post was established by the Constitution of the Islamic Republic of Iran in accordance with the concept of the Guardianship of the Islamic Jurist. According to the Constitution, the powers of government in the Islamic Republic of Iran are vested in the legislature, the judiciary, and the executive powers, functioning under the supervision of the Absolute Guardianship and the Leadership of the Ummah that refers to the Supreme Leader. The title “Supreme” Leader (Persian: rahbar-e mo’azzam) is often used as a sign of respect; however, this terminology is not found in the Constitution, which simply referred to the “Leader” (rahbar).

The Supreme Leader is more powerful than the President of Iran and appoints the heads of many powerful posts in the military, the civil government, and the judiciary. Originally Iran’s constitution stated that the Supreme Leader must be a Marja’-e taqlid, the highest ranking cleric and authority on religious laws in Usuli Twelver Shia Islam. However, in 1989, the constitution was amended to require simply Islamic “scholarship” of the leader, i.e., the leader could be a lower ranking cleric.

In its history, the Islamic Republic has had two Supreme Leaders: Ruhollah Khomeini, who held the position from 1979 until his death in 1989, and Ali Khamenei, who has held the position since Khomeini’s death.

In theory, the Supreme Leader is appointed and supervised by the Assembly of Experts. All candidates to the Assembly of Experts, the President and the Majlis (Parliament), are selected by the Guardian Council, whose members are selected by the Supreme Leader of Iran. As such, the Assembly has never questioned the Supreme Leader. There have been instances when the current Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei has publicly criticized members of the Assembly of Experts, resulting in their arrest and dismissal. For example, Khamenei publicly called then-member of the Assembly of Experts Ahmad Azari Qomi a traitor, resulting in Ahmad Azari Qomi’s arrest and eventual dismissal from the Assembly of Experts. There has also been instances where the Guardian Council reversed its ban for particular people after being ordered to do so by Khamenei. The Supreme Leader issues decrees and makes the final decisions on economy, environment and everything else. Any declaration of war or peace is supposed to be made by the Supreme Leader together with a two-thirds majority of Parliament.

Albert Pike and Three World Wars

Albert Pike received a vision, which he described in a letter that he wrote to Mazzini, dated August 15, 1871. This letter graphically outlined plans for three world wars that were seen as necessary to bring about the One World Order, and we can marvel at how accurately it has predicted events that have already taken place.

Pike’s Letter to Mazzini

It is a commonly believed fallacy that for a short time, the Pike letter to Mazzini was on display in the British Museum Library in London, and it was copied by William Guy Carr, former Intelligence Officer in the Royal Canadian Navy.  The British Library has confirmed in writing to me that such a document has never been in their possession.  Furthermore, in Carr’s book, Satan, Prince of this World, Carr includes the following footnote:

“The Keeper of Manuscripts recently informed the author that this letter is NOT catalogued in the British Museum Library.  It seems strange that a man of Cardinal Rodriguez’s knowledge should have said that it WAS in 1925″.

It appears that Carr learned about this letter from Cardinal Caro y Rodriguez of Santiago, Chile, who wrote The Mystery of Freemasonry Unveiled.

To date, no conclusive proof exists to show that this letter was ever written.  Nevertheless, the letter is widely quoted and the topic of much discussion.

Following are apparently extracts of the letter, showing how Three World Wars have been planned for many generations.

The First World War must be brought about in order to permit the Illuminati to overthrow the power of the Czars in Russia and of making that country a fortress of atheistic Communism. The divergences caused by the “agentur” (agents) of the Illuminati between the British and Germanic Empires will be used to foment this war. At the end of the war, Communism will be built and used in order to destroy the other governments and in order to weaken the religions.”

Students of history will recognize that the political alliances of England on one side and Germany on the other, forged between 1871 and 1898 by Otto von Bismarck, co-conspirator of Albert Pike, were instrumental in bringing about the First World War.

The Second World War must be fomented by taking advantage of the differences between the Fascists and the political Zionists. This war must be brought about so that Nazism is destroyed and that the political Zionism be strong enough to institute a sovereign state of Israel in Palestine. During the Second World War, International Communism must become strong enough in order to balance Christendom, which would be then restrained and held in check until the time when we would need it for the final social cataclysm.”

After this Second World War, Communism was made strong enough to begin taking over weaker governments. In 1945, at the Potsdam Conference between Truman, Churchill, and Stalin, a large portion of Europe was simply handed over to Russia, and on the other side of the world, the aftermath of the war with Japan helped to sweep the tide of Communism into China.

(Readers who argue that the terms Nazism and Zionism were not known in 1871 should remember that the Illuminati invented both these movements.  In addition, Communism as an ideology, and as a coined phrase, originates in France during the Revolution.  In 1785, Restif coined the phrase four years before revolution broke out.  Restif and Babeuf, in turn, were influenced by Rousseau – as was the most famous conspirator of them all, Adam Weishaupt.)

The Third World War must be fomented by taking advantage of the differences caused by the “agentur” of the “Illuminati” between the political Zionists and the leaders of Islamic World. The war must be conducted in such a way that Islam (the Moslem Arabic World) and political Zionism (the State of Israel) mutually destroy each other. Meanwhile the other nations, once more divided on this issue will be constrained to fight to the point of complete physical, moral, spiritual and economical exhaustion…We shall unleash the Nihilists and the atheists, and we shall provoke a formidable social cataclysm which in all its horror will show clearly to the nations the effect of absolute atheism, origin of savagery and of the most bloody turmoil. Then everywhere, the citizens, obliged to defend themselves against the world minority of revolutionaries, will exterminate those destroyers of civilization, and the multitude, disillusioned with Christianity, whose deistic spirits will from that moment be without compass or direction, anxious for an ideal, but without knowing where to render its adoration, will receive the true light through the universal manifestation of the pure doctrine of Lucifer, brought finally out in the public view. This manifestation will result from the general reactionary movement which will follow the destruction of Christianity and atheism, both conquered and exterminated at the same time.”

Since the terrorist attacks of Sept 11, 2001, world events, and in particular in the Middle East, show a growing unrest and instability between Modern Zionism and the Arabic World. This is completely in line with the call for a Third World War to be fought between the two, and their allies on both sides. This Third World War is still to come, and recent events show us that it is not far off.

‘Israel will be destroyed within 25 years': Iranian supreme leader issues chilling warning to ‘Zionists’ – and rejects talks with ‘Great Satan’ U.S. beyond its nuclear deal;

Source: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3227881/Israel-destroyed-25-years-Iranian-supreme-leader-issues-chilling-warning-Zionists-rejects-talks-Great-Satan-U-S-nuclear-deal.html#ixzz4QPzQCy7r ; 16:51 GMT, 9 September 2015

Khamenei, who makes the final decision on major policies, said: ‘Some Zionists have said that regarding the result of the nuclear deal they (Israelis) have been relieved of concerns about Iran for 25 years.

‘But we tell them that you will not see the coming 25 years and God willing there will not be something named the Zionist regime in the region.’

…..

Khamenei said America remains the ‘Great Satan’ and warned that co-operation with Washington on other issues would allow it to ‘penetrate’ the Islamic republic.

‘The Iranian nation ousted the Satan. We should not let it back through the window,’ he said, referring to the 1979 Islamic revolution that toppled the U.S.-backed shah.

His remarks came a day after Iran’s moderate President Hassan Rouhani signaled that Tehran was ready to hold talks with world powers on ending Syria’s civil war.

Iran is a key ally of embattled President Bashar Assad (president of Syria), while the U.S. supports the rebels fighting to overthrow him.

Supreme Leader: If Jesus Were Here He Would Fight America; By Patrick Goodenough | December 25, 2013 | 7:33 PM EST

Source: http://www.cnsnews.com/news/article/patrick-goodenough/supreme-leader-if-jesus-were-here-he-would-fight-america

(CNSNews.com) – Iran’s supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei marked Christmas Day with social media messages tying Jesus into political rhetoric directed at the United States.

“If Christ were among us today, he would not spare even a single moment to fight the leaders of despotism and global arrogance,” he said on Facebook, using the Islamic Republic’s favored term for America.

“Nor would he tolerate hunger and wandering of millions of people, degenerated by the hegemonic and colonialist powers into war, corruption, and violence,” he added.

On Twitter, Khamenei tweeted another message containing a veiled dig at the U.S.: “Jesus Christ was a minister of a heavenly justice to call all oppressed on earth for emancipation from the thralldom of bullying despots.”

In a separate message he claimed that Jesus is as important to Muslims as he is to Christians: “No doubt that Jesus Christ has no less value among Muslims than he has among the pious Christians.”

IARLG’s comments on World War 3

Say (O Muhammad SAW): “I don’t tell you that with me are the treasures of Allah, nor (that) I know the unseen; nor I tell you that I am an angel. I but follow what is revealed to me by inspiration.” Say: “Are the blind and the one who sees equal? will you not then take thought?” (Qur’an 6:50)

We repeat we don’t know the unseen (future). Even Prophet Muhammad (SAW) was commanded in the Quran to say he does not know the unseen. Who are we to claim we know the unseen.

We are using current day information along with the Quran and Sunnah to try and figure out what to do. It is a difficult task because the hadiths of the end times are many and it is difficult to say if the hadith applies to you or applied to those before you or will be applied in the future.

Narrated Abu Huraira: Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) said, “The Hour will not be established (1) till two big groups fight each other whereupon there will be a great number of casualties on both sides and they will be following one and the same religious doctrine,….[ Sahih al-Bukhari 7121]

For example, the hadith above of Sahih al-Bukhari 7121 can be interpreted as follows: The tops of Gog and Magog will try to make the Zionists and Muslims crush each other. Since these are two groups and anyone who joins either side is part of them and they fight under the religion of the Dajjal. The democratic manmade constitution group versus those (eg Iran leaders) who pretend to be righteous but are in fact assisting to bring out the Dajjal in person.

Now what we have done here is not predicting the unseen because the hadith can mean something else. Because Prophet Muhammad (SAW) used to send spies and make plans against his enemies using the information of the spies we also have to do the same.

It is also important to state that the two big groups fighting each other under the same religious doctrine is not the same war as the presented in many hadiths of Bukhari, Muslim etc. Let us look at one from Muslim.

Abu Huraira reported Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) as saying: The last hour would not come unless the Muslims will fight against the Jews and the Muslims would kill them until the Jews would hide themselves behind a stone or a tree and a stone or a tree would say: Muslim, or the servant of Allah, there is a Jew behind me; come and kill him; but the tree Gharqad would not say, for it is the tree of the Jews. [Sahih Muslim 2922]

The fight in Sahih Muslim 2922 indicates that it is truly a fight between Muslims and jews and not a made up war between Zionists and fake Muslims. Fake Muslims because Prophet Muhammad (SAW) said the two groups will be fighting under one religious doctrine and we know no true Muslims will fight against each other and that is why Muslims are not mentioned but two big groups. Is this a sign that Muslims should not take part in a war that does not concern them?

Which will war will take place first? We don’t know for sure but we thought it would be important to mention because there are many hadiths which prove we should not participate in every war:

Abu Huraira reported Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) as saying: The Last Hour would not come before the Euphrates uncovers a mountain of gold, for which people would fight. Ninety-nine out of each one hundred would die but every man amongst them would say that perhaps he would be the one who would be saved (and thus possess this gold). [Sahih Muslim 2894 a]

Abu Huraira reported Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) as saying: The Euphrates would soon uncover a mountain of gold but he who is present there should not take anything from that. [Sahih Muslim 2894 d]

It was narrated from Abu Hurairah that the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said:“Whoever fights under a banner of folly, supporting tribalism, or getting angry for the sake of tribalism, he dies in a state of ignorance.” [Sunan Ibn Majah 3948] [Sahih (Darussalam)]

Please keep in mind that we personally don’t like saying much about the unseen (future) and we would not have done this presentation of world war 3 if it weren’t for (Qur’an 6:50) which ends by saying are the blind and the one who sees equal and will you not then take thought. After analyzing the world and seeing the situation we are in; we knew we had to list all the facts and the plan of the enemy.

This news of the 3 world wars has leaked and we see and know what is going on. But we need to follow the Quran and Sunnah to guide us. If we are correct that is good and we thank Allah. But if we are wrong, we accept and acknowledge that it is our weakness. Please if we are wrong don’t undervalue the Quran and Sunnah just because of our mistakes. The Quran and Sunnah are the only and best guide for you in this life and in the Hereafter.

………………………………………………………………………

WRAPPING UP:

Please note that the only reason we focused on Iran and those Muslims who call themselves shia in this article is because it is in Iran (Isfahan) where the Dajjal will emerge. We are only taking heed of what our Messenger said and that is why we highlighted all the things that are similar to the Dajjal and Gog and Magog who wish to bring out the Dajjal.

These hadiths of the Dajjal were so important that our Prophet (SAW) told them to his companions who recorded them and Allah allowed these hadiths to reach our time indicating Allah wanted the Prophet’s words to reach us.

We have to stay alert and be grateful. The Children of Israel had a tougher time than us. We no longer have the need to prepare our children to receive a new Prophet because Prophet Muhammad (SAW) is the last Prophet. The Children of Israel had to ensure that they adopted their current Prophet’s teachings and pass on to their children signs of a new Prophet so that they could recognize him if he appears.

What we have to do now is stay alert for the Dajjal and try to be as best prepared for the fitna now and the ones to come as much as possible.

We already stated that it is Sunnah to prove the signs of the Dajjal even if a fellow Muslim is displaying them. Ibn Sayyad was considered a Muslim but Prophet Muhammad (SAW) and his companions still suspected him of being the Dajjal since he showed such features. Prophet Muhammad (SAW) wanted to prove his suspicions but he was not able to and hence the situation of Ibn Sayyad was left unclear.

Since in our times we are sure the Dajjal is currently presenting himself via democracy; any leader (even Muslim) saying such things should be double checked. Ruhollah Khomeini was unclear whether he was for or against democracy since he spoke for and against it just like how Ibn Sayyad during the time of Prophet Muhammad (SAW) was unclear whether he was the Dajjal or not. Is it wrong if we double check him because he is confusing us?

O you who believe! If a rebellious evil person comes to you with a news, verify it, lest you harm people in ignorance, and afterwards you become regretful to what you have done. (Qur’an 49:6)

So Muslims in Iran please don’t hate us. Those who pretend to be Muslims and are really working to bring out the Dajjal; we have reminded you. Remember that Allah is the Most Merciful and that the Dajjal is a fitna and is no good. Sadly even by saying this we know Gog and Magog will still continue in their mischief and we pray to Allah we die as Muslims so that we don’t become losers in the Hereafter.

It is also best to give a message to all other leaders [who call themselves Muslims but don’t act like Muslims], “The top members of Gog and Magog have divided Muslims to reign over them, and their worst fear is if they unite under one Muslim leader but the fact you are helping them by becoming their allies is not good for you and you are treated as one of them. This is not our own judgment but the Judgment of the All-Knower, the All-Aware, the All-Aware, the Most Just.

O you who believe! Take not the Jews and the Christians as Auliya’ (friends, protectors, helpers, etc.), they are but Auliya’ to one another. And if any amongst you takes them as Auliya’, then surely he is one of them. Verily, Allah guides not those people who are the Zalimun (polytheists and wrong-doers and unjust). (Qur’an 5:51)

And you see those in whose hearts there is a disease (of hypocrisy), they hurry to their friendship, saying: “We fear lest some misfortune of a disaster may befall us.” Perhaps Allah may bring a victory or a decision according to His Will. Then they will become regretful for what they have been keeping as a secret in themselves. (Qur’an 5:52)

And those who believe will say: “Are these the men (hypocrites) who swore their strongest oaths by Allah that they were with you (Muslims)?” All that they did has been in vain (because of their hypocrisy), and they have become the losers. (Qur’an 5:53)

O you who believe! Whoever from among you turns back from his religion (Islam), Allah will bring a people whom He will love and they will love Him; humble towards the believers, stern towards the disbelievers, fighting in the Way of Allah, and never afraid of the blame of the blamers. That is the Grace of Allah which He bestows on whom He wills. And Allah is All-Sufficient for His creatures’ needs, All-Knower. (Qur’an 5:54)

Verily, your Wali (Protector or Helper) is Allah, His Messenger, and the believers, – those who perform As-Salat (Iqamat-as-Salat), and give Zakat, and they bow down (submit themselves with obedience to Allah in prayer). (Qur’an 5:55)

And whosoever takes Allah, His Messenger, and those who have believed, as Protectors, then the party of Allah will be the victorious. (Qur’an 5:56)

Keep in mind we Muslims have been divided in the past mainly by the Sykes–Picot Agreement.

Sykes–Picot Agreement; Souce: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sykes%E2%80%93Picot_Agreement#Consequences

The Sykes–Picot Agreement /ˈsaɪks pi.ko/, officially known as the Asia Minor Agreement, was a secret 1916 agreement between Great Britain and France, to which the Russian Empire assented. The agreement defined their mutually agreed spheres of influence and control in Southwestern Asia. The agreement was based on the premise that the Triple Entente would succeed in defeating the Ottoman Empire during World War I. The negotiations leading to the agreement occurred between November 1915 and March 1916 and it was signed 16 May 1916. The deal was exposed to the public in Izvestia and Pravda on 23 November 1917 and in the British Guardian on November 26, 1917.

The agreement is still mentioned when considering the region and its present-day conflicts.

The agreement allocated to Britain control of areas roughly comprising the coastal strip between the Mediterranean Sea and the River Jordan, Jordan, southern Iraq, and an additional small area that included the ports of Haifa and Acre, to allow access to the Mediterranean. France got control of southeastern Turkey, northern Iraq, Syria and Lebanon. Russia was to get Istanbul, the Turkish Straits and Armenia. The controlling powers were left free to determine state boundaries within their areas. Further negotiation was expected to determine international administration pending consultations with Russia and other powers, including Hussein bin Ali, Sharif of Mecca.

Given Ottoman defeat in 1918 and the subsequent partitioning of the Ottoman Empire, the agreement effectively divided the Ottoman’s Arab provinces outside the Arabian peninsula into areas of British and French control and influence. An international administration was proposed for Palestine apart to the Acre-Haifa zone which was intended to be an British enclave in northern Palestine to enable access to the Mediterranean. The British gained control of the territory in 1920 and ruled it as Mandatory Palestine from 1923 until 1948. They also ruled Mandatory Iraq from 1920 until 1932, while the French Mandate for Syria and the Lebanon lasted from 1923 to 1946. The terms were negotiated by British diplomat Mark Sykes and a French counterpart, François Georges-Picot. The Tsarist government was a minor party to the Sykes–Picot agreement, and when, following the Russian Revolution, the Bolsheviks published the agreement on 23 November 1917, “the British were embarrassed, the Arabs dismayed and the Turks delighted.”

The agreement is seen by many as a turning point in Western and Arab relations. It negated the UK’s promises to Arabs made through Colonel T. E. Lawrence for a national Arab homeland in the area of Greater Syria, in exchange for supporting the British against the Ottoman Empire.

Is there any good left in you leaders? That is the part we are addressing.  You might be fearful of the consequences but Allah says He does not burden a person beyond his scope. You are also not the first ones to receive this kind of test.

Remember the believing man who hid his faith and how he stood up to Fir’aun and his chiefs from (Qur’an 40:28-45)? Allah saved him but even if Allah does not save you in this world you will still be paid in the Hereafter greatly as can be seen  in (Qur’an 85:4-11) and (Qur’an 36:13-27).

This doesn’t mean that you can change the Qadr of Allah. The Dajjal will come out as stated by Prophet Muhammad (SAW). You might resign or be killed and an evil person is put in your position to continue the plans of bringing about the Dajjal but at least you would have saved yourself, right?

LASTLY; Stay Alert and don’t be naive:

Let us read the following four articles about the Supreme leader of Iran and then please read our comments below:

Source: http://english.khamenei.ir/news/3905/Ayatollah-Khamenei-s-fatwa-Insulting-the-Mother-of-the-Faithful

Ayatollah Khamenei’s fatwa: Insulting the Mother of the Faithful Aisha is prohibited; 11th June 2016

Ayatollah Khamenei issued a decree wherein he prohibited insult towards Aisha, the wife of Prophet Muhammad (pbuh), and any of the figures and symbols celebrated by Sunni brethren.

The Leader of the Islamic Revolution said, in response to a question on religious matters, “Insulting figures and symbols celebrated by Sunni brethren, including the wife of the Prophet of Islam [Aisha] is prohibited. This includes the wives of all prophets, particularly the master of all prophets Muhammad (May God’s greetings be upon him and his household).

Fatwa (Islamic ruling) declares that insulting the Mother of the Faithful Aisha is forbidden

In response to a question, where he was asked to comment on insult and use of offensive words against the wife of the Prophet (pbuh) Aisha, Ayatollah Khamenei issued the decree (fatwa) against insulting Aisha. The question was posed by a group of Shia scholars and intellectuals of Al-Ahsa region in Saudi Arabia.

The question was brought up after a supposed Shia clergyman, who fled to Britain as a refugee, launched a Television channel with the help of the British government; he used his channel to insult Aisha, the Prophet’s wife: the clergyman falsely described his act as Shia belief.

This is not the only case wherein Ayatollah Khamenei has called insulting Aisha and other Sunni sanctities as haram (religiously forbidden).

Western arrogant powers pay their mercenaries to insult the Mother of the Faithful, Aisha

In a meeting with Shia and Sunni clergy in Kermanshah on October 12, 2011, His Eminence Ayatollah Khamenei said: “Preparation in the outer world is another aspect: The devils that attack us will not always attack with the same strategies. The modern day fiends who attack you through internet, satellite channels and highly advanced tools of communication have modern things to articulate with; their hardware and software have been modernized. They create fallacies. They create ideological problems. They give rise to intellectual confusion. They promote despair. They foment discord. I have received reports that petro-dollars are being spent, currently, on certain projects to fuel discord. Often these reports are not made available to the public. On the one hand, they are spending huge amounts of money in order to establish anti-Shia groups among Sunni Muslims in certain Islamic countries. On the other hand, they pay certain so-called Shia preachers to insult and level allegations against the Mother of the Faithful, Aisha, in the name of Shia Islam: these are their methods. As Shia or Sunni Muslims, what do you do when you are faced with these methods? Ultimately, we must not be deceived by what they do: discord among us is the greatest blessing for them.”

Insulting the Prophet’s wives equals to insulting the Prophet (pbuh)

In a meeting with agents of Sadaf Kowsar Conference, held this year as a tribute to Hazrat Khadija, Ayatollah Khamenei said: “Disrespecting the pure wives of the Prophet (pbuh) should be avoided. The Prophet’s (pbuh) wives are all respectable; anyone who insults any of them has insulted the Prophet. I resolutely declare this offensive. The commander of the Faithful, Imam Ali (pbuh) treated her eminence Aisha in such a respectful manner. He treated a woman, who had come to fight against him, with the utmost respect because she was the Prophet’s wife; otherwise the Commander of the Faithful (as) would not stand on a ceremony with anyone: hence, no such disrespect should ever occur.”

No Shia is allowed to insult Sunnis: Ayatollah Khamenei; 20th September 2016

On the auspicious occasion of Eid Al-Ghadir, when the Imamate and Wilayah are celebrated, thousands of people from various spheres of life, gathered at the Hussayniyeh of Imam Khomeini (ra) to meet with the Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Khamenei, Tuesday morning, September 20, 2016.

Ayatollah Khamenei congratulated the public on the promising day of Eid al-Ghadir, describing the blessed celebration by using the phrase, “the great divine Eid”. He stated: “The reason such a phrase applies is due to a very important development, realized through the Ghadir event, which is establishing a regulated and organized manner of governing within Islam. This regulation is the Imamate and Wilayah (guardianship) in an Islamic society; it has been announced upon the divine order and through the Prophet of Islam (God’s greeting be upon him and his progeny).”

His Eminence sealed this portion of his speech by stating: “The event of Ghadir is the origin of government regulation within an Islamic society; it reveals that Islam rejects certain forms of governing–from monarchies, to royal, greedy and lavish, as well as arrogant aristocracies–acting upon lust, but the Wilayah and Imamate order.”

Ayatollah Khamenei elaborated on the significance of Ghadir, bringing to mind God’s command to the holy Prophet (pbuh), which holds that complete communication of his prophecy was entwined with communication of the Imamate. He declared the following: “This Islamic belief is based on resolute foundations and irrevocable arguments; however, adherence and expression of this belief must not be coupled with the incitement of our Sunni brothers’ feelings; this goes against the mannerisms of the infallible Imams (as).”

The Leader of the Islamic Revolution, recurrently, put emphasis on the significance of establishing unity among Muslims: making it clear, that any form of insult, projected towards Sunni scholars, would prevent the rational and documented foundations of belief in the Imamate from being heard. Additionally, stating that, ” Do not incite emotions of the Sunni community. Some people feel, in order to prove themselves as Shia, they need to insult Sunni figures. This goes against the mannerisms of the infallible imams. The fact, that there are TV stations launched to insult (Sunni figures) well, makes it crystal clear that they are funded by the British Treasury; this is British Shiism. This game, of insults, will have a contrary function.  When you insult others, the words of truth won’t be heard,” and that “Inciting emotions among other branches of Islam, in the name of Shiism, is actually the approach of ‘British Shi’ism’–whose outcome would be the emergence of vicious groups and mercenaries from the U.S., and the U.K’s intelligence services, such as ISIS, Al-Nusra Front, and terrorist groups–who have committed multiple crimes and destruction in the region.”

Ayatollah Khamenei described the virtuous, spiritual, as well as humane features of Imam Ali (as) such as: deep faith, precedence for Islam, devotion and sacrifice for the sake of Islam; sincerity, wisdom and knowledge of God; chivalry, compassion, self-sacrifice and forgiveness. The leader added: “From among other features of Hazrat Ali (as), we can refer to his method of governance, which included: justice and fairness; considering all types of people as equal; avoiding the adornments of the world; prudence, promptness in acting upon his duty; indication, leading the society to piety; and daring to act upon truth and justice.”

The Supreme Leader also advised all Shias to be an adornment for the Progeny of the Prophet (pbut) by following their example, upholding that: “One who gives in to bribery, or seeks from public funds beyond what he deserves, or turns a blind eye to evil, and takes no responsibility for guiding the society, is no adornment for the Islamic establishment and society, he is in fact a disgrace for all Shias.”

Ayatollah Khamenei described, as acceptable, the general movement of the country forward, “thanks to the countless young individuals who work vigorously to revive Islam by applying the religion, these younger generations will bring any enemy–including the U.S. and the Zionist regime–to their knees by the Grace of God,” further adding, “The reason I repeatedly express optimism for the future, in my statements, is the fact that such agreeable realities could push the country forward.”

Finally, his Eminence called on the believing youth, with a strong motive, and those ready to take to the fields of endeavor defending the country by stating: “ This is the motive that would save the country; and thus it needs to be strengthened.”

Saudi’s attempts to normalize relations with Israel is an immense sin: Imam Khamenei; 1st August 2016

Saudi Arabia’s attempts to normalize relations with the Zionist regime is an immense sin and treason, but the U.S. has a share in this major transgression, since the Saudi government obeys the U.S., is controlled by them, and looks up to their word of mouth.

Thousands of people from several Iranian provinces, including those with various ethnic backgrounds, met with Ayatollah Khamenei, the Leader of the Islamic Revolution today, August 1, 2016, at the Hussainiyah of Imam Khomeini.

The Leader of the Islamic Revolution divulged in Saudi Arabia’s attempts, which are meant to normalize relations with the Zionist regime. He described this attempt as a stab in the Islamic Ummah’s back, saying “The move, by the Saudis, is an immense sin and treason, but the U.S. has a share in this major transgression, since the Saudi government obeys the U.S., is controlled by them, and looks up to their word of mouth.”

His eminence called out the Saudi war on Yemen, the non-stop bombardment – of houses, hospitals and schools – and ongoing infanticide in Yemen (by the Saudi regime) as other major crimes and added, “These crimes are also committed by the U.S., which is providing arms and a green light for the Saudis.”

Ayatollah Khamenei condemned the United Nation’s silence towards these crimes, by stating: “Unfortunately, even when the UN decided to condemn these crimes after a while, they threatened and pressured the UN with their money and shut its mouth. The shamed UN Secretary General admitted to these pressures, however, instead of admitting, he should have resigned rather than stay and betray humanity.”

“U.S. animosity is not limited to the Islamic Republic of Iran; there is a great chance that the recent events in Turkey were also plotted with the help of Americans; if this is proven, it will in turn become a major scandal for the U.S.. Turkey was a regional ally of the U.S., but the Americans oppose Islam, and Islamic inclinations; therefore, since there is an Islamic inclination in the Turkey, they launched a coup. Of course, the attempted coups, as well as the U.S. are abhorred by the Turkish people, so the U.S. is declining in Iraq, Syria and other parts of the region.”

His eminence also shed light on the U.S.’s role in creating and strengthening Takfiri groups; aimed at sowing discord among Muslim nations, while promoting an Umayyad type of Islam; in fact, giving Islam a bad name, by stating: “The Americans claim they have formed a coalition against ISIS and takfiri groups, while they do nothing practical against them and based on certain reports, they even help these groups. Today, it has backfired to them.”

Additionally, Ayatollah Khamenei touched on the concern of Bahrain, describing the foreign troops sent to Bahrain, in order to oppress protesters, as an act supported by the U.S. He stated, “Today the Saudi government is in the hands of unwise individuals, but a precise analysis of regional problems reveals that the U.S. has a hand in all these issues.”

Our problems with America are not solved by negotiations: Ayatollah Khamenei; 1st August 2016

 

The following is part of the speech delivered on August 1, 2016 by Ayatollah Khamenei, the Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution, in a meeting with people from various social backgrounds.

……

These were related to the issues of the country and these were my viewpoints. These were my viewpoints about economic matters. I have constantly discussed these viewpoints with the people and with officials. I say that we should rely on ourselves, and that we should identify our inner power. The country’s maladies have been identified. Its cures have been identified as well. We should plan on these cures and we should move forward.

As for regional matters, the region has become a turbulent region today. When we take a look at it, we see America’s footprint again. The Saudi government has publicly established relations with the Zionist regime and it has made its comings and goings official. This is stabbing the Islamic Ummah in the back. There is no doubt that what the Saudis have done – overt relations with the Zionist regime – is really a dagger that has been pushed into the body of the Islamic Ummah from behind. They have committed high treason. They have committed a sin. However, on this matter too, America’s hand is involved. Because the Saudi government follows America, because it is possessed by it, and because it obeys its orders, it has made this grave mistake. America is involved on this matter too.

Or when you witness that it is almost a year and a half now that Yemen has been under bombardment, is this a minor event? They are constantly bombarding a country. And they are not bombarding its military centers, rather they are bombarding its markets, hospitals, public squares and schools and the people’s houses and gatherings. This is not a minor event, rather it is a very grave crime. They do not understand what the month of Ramadan and a month of haraam are and they do not differentiate between children and adults. They have murdered so many children! Well, this is a grave crime as well which has unfortunately been committed by the Saudi government. However, they have done so with the support of America, with its approval and with its weapons – the weapons and ammunitions that are from America.

It is they who are providing them will all the resources. Even when the United Nations wants to say something in this regard – now, after a lifetime of silence, it has decided to say something true and to condemn this course of action – they shut its mouth with money, with threats and with pressure. This poor and infamous Secretary General of the United Nations acknowledged that they have exerted pressure on him. Well, if they pressured you and if you cannot fulfill your duty, why do you not resign? Why do you stay there and betray humanity? This is betraying humanity! America is involved on this matter as well.

On the issue of Bahrain, when a foreign army comes to Bahrain from another country in order to pressure the people of Bahrain, here too, America has given its green light. The Saudi government is a government that is being managed by children: by silly children in the real sense of the word. The Saudi government is in their hands. However, what one understands after analyzing and witnessing all the issues is that this is really being done by the Americans and with their support.

The same is true of these takfiri groups. In the present time, they claim that they have formed a coalition against takfiri groups. Of course, even right now, they are not doing anything against them. According to the reports that we have received, they even help them in some places. However, the creation of these groups goes back to America. Some American officials have acknowledged this. They have acknowledged that they have helped create DAESH in order to create discord inside the Islamic Ummah and in order to promote Umayyad and Marwani Islam. This Wahhabi and takfiri Islam is the same as Umayyad and Marwani Islam! It is a kind of Islam that is miles away from real Islam. They have made Islam disreputable. Of course, they themselves are suffering from the consequences of their actions as well. It is well-known in Farsi that “Anyone who plants a wind will reap a storm.” Now, they are gradually reaping a storm. But this is their fault anyway. It was they who did so.

The same is true of other matters. The Americans claim that they want to solve regional problems, but in reality, it is the opposite of this. They themselves have created or intensified these problems. They are a barrier to solving the problems. If things are in the hands of regional peoples, they will resolve the problems on their own. Once more, we would like to invite the Islamic and Arab governments which are around us to avoid trusting America. They should know that America is not trustworthy. America looks at them as a tool: a tool for preserving the Zionist regime and their own arrogant outlook and interests in the region. In reality, America is not interested in them in any way. It uses their money and their resources for its own interests. It uses them in order to create a rampart for itself, to preserve the Zionist regime and uphold its own arrogant goals in the region. This is what they are doing.

On the issue of regional events, in my opinion, the solution is that Muslim nations and Muslim governments become united and show resistance in the face of the goals of arrogance, America and some European governments. Some European governments made themselves disreputable by following America. This way, they made themselves fall out of favor with regional nations. Well, some European governments were even respected by our people – the people of Iran – but they made themselves disreputable by following America. Their goals should be identified and then our movement should be launched against their goals. Nations can do so. And of course, our nation has stood firm.

I should add that despite all these statements and analyses, America is becoming weaker in the region on a daily basis. Its plans have been revealed and it is clear what it is after: It is after interfering in the affairs of different countries. And it is not the case that it only shows enmity towards us and that it is friends with others. This is not the case. You witnessed what happened in Turkey. Of course, in our opinion, it has not been proved yet that America was involved there, but there is a serious accusation that the coup d’état that was launched in Turkey was masterminded by the Americans. If this is proved, this will be a big scandal for America.

Turkey was a country that had good relations with America. It used to say that it is America’ ally in the region, but they are not even prepared to get along with Turkey. This is because there is an Islamic orientation there. They are opposed to Islam and to an Islamic orientation. This is why they launch a coup d’état even in that country. Of course, it was put down. They were defeated and they fell out of favor with the people of Turkey as well. The same is true of other places. Thankfully, they are becoming weaker on a daily basis in Iraq, in Syria and in different other countries as well.

If we people of Iran are optimistic about the promise that Allah the Exalted has given and if we prepare the ground for that promise, then problems will be solved. God has said, “If you help the cause of Allah, He will help you” [The Holy Quran, 47: 7]. If you help God’s religion and if you strengthen and aid divine motives, Allah the Exalted will undoubtedly help you. No creature in the world can weaken a person who is helped by Allah the Exalted. Such a person will become stronger and more victorious on a daily basis. I hope that Allah the Exalted will help the people of Iran to succeed in all arenas – security, economic, military, political, cultural and scientific arenas – God willing. I hope that He will make you dear people happier and more victorious on a daily basis.

 

 

 

 

IARLG’s comments:

 

All these articles of what Khamenei says are somewhat good, right? These points were good, right?

 

  • Don’t curse wives of Prophet and his companions
  • Saudi’s should not normalize relations with America and Israel
  • Saudi’s harming Yemen is no good
  • Problems with America are not solved by negotiations but Jihad
  • Muslims should work together to prepare youth for Jihad to bring down Zionism (America and Israel)

 

We agree but before we comment further let us look at this incident at the time of Prophet Muhammad (SAW):

 

Anwar Aw-laki {The battle of Khaibar (cont.) Events after Khaibar}: Prophet Muhammad (SAW) sent out another Sarraya lead by …. on the way they met a man called Harith Ibn Malik. Now this man could be a spy, he could be a traveler and Allah knows best. So it was ordered that he should be arrested. Harith Ibn Malik said, “I have come to accept Islam”. He was told, “If you are telling the truth and you really came to become a Muslim then being held a captive for a day and a night wouldn’t harm you.” Because they only wanted to keep him for a day. “And if you have other motives then we are going to take our precautions.” Because if he was a spy, then he would disclose their location and their numbers and would give out information to the enemy and allow them time to mobilize their forces and gather and attack. These Sarraya depended on the elements of surprise because they were very small in number. You can see that most of them were ambushes that were done suddenly either at night or early morning and they take the enemy by surprise. So now they were spotted by this man. So they held him as a captive. Now there is a problem here. This man claims that he is a Muslim and it is not allowed to take a Muslim for no sin and to arrest him but this was a necessary move on part of the leader of the Sarriya and he tried to explain it to this man and he told him, “Listen if you are a Muslim it won’t harm you if you are held captive for one day.” Obviously he doesn’t want to take this man with them. He had to leave him in that spot and left with him it says in the narration the black man. He gave this man instructions, he told him, “If he resists then cut off his head.” So they had to hold him where he is on the spot so that the mission is not leaked. It shows you the precautions that the sahaba would take. They were very intelligent and wise. They would not be tricked.

Usama ibn Zayd killed an [enemy] idolater in battle after the latter had said: “There is no god but Allah” (La ilaha illallah). When news of this reached Allah’s Messenger he condemned Usama in the strongest terms and he said to him: “How can you kill him after he said La ilaha illallah?” He replied: “But he said it with the sword hanging over his head-” The Prophet said again: “How can you kill him after he said La ilaha illallah?” He replied: “O Messenger of Allah, he said it in dissimulation (taqiyyatan).” The Prophet  said: “Did you split his heart open (to see)?” and he did not cease to reprove him until Usama wished that he had not entered Islam until after he had killed that man so that he might have been forgiven all his past sins through belief. [Narrated by Bukhari, Muslim, Ahmad, Tayalisi, Abu Dawud, Nasa’i, al-`Adni, Abu `Awana, al-Tahawi, al-Hakim, and Bayhaqi.]

Anwar Aw-laki {The battle of Khaibar (cont.) Events after Khaibar}: It is the greatest crime after shirk to kill a Muslim……We take people by what we see, we take them by what is apparent. Because in another narration it states why didn’t you split his heart open to see what is in it. Have you opened up his heart to know whether he was a Muslim or not? We go by what we see. If a person claims to be a Muslim then we take him for his word and we leave what is in the hearts to Allah on the Day of Judgement. Now this applies both ways; it applies to kufr and imaan. If what we see from a person is kufr then we judge them as being disbelievers and what we see from a person apparently is imaan and Islam then we judge them to be Muslim. We do not dig into their hearts and try to find out what is in there. Same thing here we could also look at the lesson of … when he took this man as he prisoner that prisoner said, “I am a Muslim”, he did not try to argue with that by saying things like he was he spy and that he was lying and such. He told him, “If you are a Muslim have patience for one day and if you are not, Allah knows best.”

 

Now with this in mind and if we look at (Qur’an 3:7) below:

 

It is He Who has sent down to you the Book (this Qur’an). In it are Verses that are entirely clear, they are the foundations of the Book; and others not entirely clear. So as for those in whose hearts there is a deviation (from the truth) they follow that which is not entirely clear thereof, seeking Al-Fitnah (polytheism and trials, etc.), and seeking for its hidden meanings, but none knows its hidden meanings save Allah(. And)/(and) those who are firmly grounded in knowledge say: “We believe in it; the whole of it (clear and unclear Verses) are from our Lord.” And none receive admonition except men of understanding. (Tafsir At-Tabari). (Qur’an 3:7)

 

What do you notice? People can use the Ayat of Allah to try and cause fitna. That is what we are worried about. For example he can use (Qur’an 6:75-82) for the following two groups:

 

  • He will say to those who identify themselves as Shia: Listen, I am telling you not to curse the wives of the Prophet so that we can join forces with these Sunni Muslims and take out the Zionist plot.

 

  • He will say to the tops of Gog and Magog: Listen, now all these shias and sunnis trust me. I can lead them to fight the Zionists so that we can achieve our goal of bringing about the Dajjal.

 

(This is just an example and we don’t really know what is in his mind. Maybe he has repented if he really did such wrongs but Allah knows best.)

 

 

If he really repented and become a true Muslims the conditions are clear as (Qur’an 4:146) states:

 

O you who believe! Take not for Auliya’ (protectors or helpers or friends) disbelievers instead of believers. Do you wish to offer Allah a manifest proof against yourselves? Verily, the hypocrites will be in the lowest depths (grade) of the Fire; no helper will you find for them. Except those who repent (from hypocrisy), do righteous good deeds, hold fast to Allah, and purify their religion for Allah (by worshipping none but Allah, and do good for Allah’s sake only, not to show-off), then they will be with the believers. And Allah will grant to the believers a great reward. (Qur’an 4:144-146)

 

As long as he repents, does righteous good deeds and purifies the religion meaning bringing about the Islamic Khalifa and following the Quran and Sunnah fully and acts upon the examples set by the 4 rightly guided Khalifas then that is fine.

 

You might say following the Quran and Sunnah is enough, why even the examples set by the 4 rightly guided Khalifas? It is because Prophet Muhammad (SAW) told us so just like how Allah told us to respect our parents but not to obey them if they order us to practice evil. The four khalifas wanted their followers to correct them if they went against the Quran and Sunnah and they were willing to change to meet the demands of the Quran and Sunnah.

 

The Book of Miscellany; ‘Irbad bin Sariyah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: One day Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) delivered us a very eloquent Khutbah on account of which eyes shed tears and hearts were full of tears. A man said: “O Prophet of Allah, this is as if it were a parting advice. So advise us”. He (ﷺ) said, “I admonish you to fear Allah, to listen and obey even if an Abyssinian slave is appointed as your leader. Because whosoever among you shall live after me, will see much discord. So hold fast to my Sunnah and the examples of the Rightly- Guided Caliphs who will come after me. Adhere to them and hold to it fast. Beware of new things (in Deen) because every Bid’ah is a misguidance“. [Abu Dawud and At- Tirmidhi]. [Arabic/English book reference: Book 1, Hadith 157]

 

We can’t just rule as we feel like. Dawud (David) was told if he follows his desires he would be lead astray. If even a Prophet was told his desire would lead him from the Path of Allah then what about you and us? We are told in (Qur’an 4:59) that if we differ in anything to refer to Allah and His Messenger.

 

O Dawud (David)! Verily! We have placed you as a successor on earth, so judge you between men in truth (and justice) and follow not your desire for it will mislead you from the Path of Allah. Verily! Those who wander astray from the Path of Allah (shall) have a severe torment, because they forgot the Day of Reckoning. (Qur’an 38:26)

 

O you who believe! Obey Allah and obey the Messenger (Muhammad SAW), and those of you (Muslims) who are in authority. (And) if you differ in anything amongst yourselves, refer it to Allah and His Messenger, if you believe in Allah and in the Last Day. That is better and more suitable for final determination. (Qur’an 4:59)

 

Narrated Abu Huraira: The Prophet (SAW) said, “A believer is not stung twice (by something) out of one and the same hole.” [Sahih al-Bukhari 6133]

 

We personally don’t feel comfortable following a Muslim who was in the past apostate. The scholars should give a fatwa on what one has to do to be considered an apostate but we thought it would be best to include this passage from [Umar Ibn Al-Khattab, His Life and Times, Volume 2, pg 157-158, by Dr ‘Ali Muhammad as-Sallabi] in our article to see what the 2 of the 4 rightly guided Caliphs did. Remember Prophet Muhammad (SAW) was the one who told us to follow their example. And the Quran told us to follow the Sunnah.

 

Seekng the help of former apostates who had repented: During the Riddah wars and the conquests, Abu Bakr as-Siddeeq did not seek the help of former apostate, but ‘Umar mobilized them after they repented and set their affairs straight, and acquired some Islamic education, but he did not appoint any of them to a position of authority. According to one report, he said to Sa’d ibn Abi Waqqas concerning Tulayhah ibn Khuwaylid al-Asadi and ‘Amr ibn Ma’di Yakrib az-Zubaydi: “See their help, but do not appoint them over one hundred (men).” What we learn from the actions of the two caliphs Abu Bakr and ‘Umar is that if a person apostatizes from Islam thn repents and comes back, his repentance is accepted and his blood and wealth are protected; he has the same rights and duties as all other Muslims, except that he is not be appointed to any position of authority over the Muslims’ affairs, expecially in matters of leadership. That is because it is possible that his repentance may be hypocritical, and if that is the case and he is appointed to a position of authority and leadership, he will cause great mischief in the land and upset the balance of life; he will bring in others who are like him of the hypocrites and push away the sincere believers, and the Islamic society will become a society that is dominated by the characteristics of Jahiliyah. This wise policy of these two Rightly-Guided Caliphs was aimed at protecting the Muslim society from evildoers sneaking in to positions of leadership. Perhaps the reason for this policy was also a means of making the punishment go against what they  (the former apostates) had tried to acheve and of deterring anyone who might be tempted to rebel against Islamic principles and seek a position of leadership by means of opposing Islam and befriending the enemies of the faith.[ From the book Umar Ibn Al-Khattab, His Life and Times, Volume 2, pg 157-158, by Dr ‘Ali Muhammad as-Sallabi]

 

Do you see now the severity of apostasy? Abu Bakr as-Siddeq for his whole time as Khalifa never used the apostates in Jihad but they were used but not appointed in leadership positions by ‘Umar after they had proven themselves for a long time. One has to pay for the mistakes of his past, for example if it is proved a Muslim has stolen, no amount of repentance via words will suffice unless the hand is cutoff. It is only in the Hereafter that they may be forgiven for the consequences if Allah wills. Because Allah says he forgives all sins except shirk in (Qur’an 4:48, 116). So if a person steals and repents but his hand was not cut off because he was not exposed in the dunya then Allah might punish him or forgive him in the Hereafter. If the crime was shirk in the dunya and he comes in the Hereafter without any sin but shirk then Allah will surely not forgive this person.

Verily, Allah forgives not that partners should be set up with him in worship, but He forgives except that (anything else) to whom He pleases, and whoever sets up partners with Allah in worship, he has indeed invented a tremendous sin. (Qur’an 4:48)

Verily! Allah forgives not (the sin of) setting up partners in worship with Him, but He forgives whom he pleases sins other than that, and whoever sets up partners in worship with Allah, has indeed strayed far away. (Qur’an 4:116)

This article really took up a lot of our time and we tried our best to write it in a manner which will not bring us any problems in the Hereafter. This is our longest article so far. We had to make it long because tying to bring unity is quite a sensitive topic and a one page article would not be enough except if we wrote something like, “Obey Allah and His Messenger” or “Follow the Quran and Sunnah”.

Now it is up to you the reader to decide via the Quran and Sunnah. We have presented facts from all angles and our concerns up to 11th November 2016; 10th or 11th Safar 1438; but in the end you have to decide via the Quran and Sunnah you are going to do based on what occurs from here onwards.

142 - IARLG - GOG AND MAGOG HAVE BEEN RELEASED! WHAT TO DO – Try to unite the Muslim Ummah; Date 11th November 2016; 10th or 11th Safar 1438 (78 downloads)
