Tafsir Ibn Kathir - Fight them until they pay the jizya

E-mail Print PDF
Paying Jizyah is a Sign of Kufr and Disgrace

 

Allah said,

 

[حَتَّى يُعْطُواْ الْجِزْيَةَ]

 

(until they pay the Jizyah), if they do not choose to embrace Islam,

 

[عَن يَدٍ]

 

(with willing submission), in defeat and subservience,

 

[وَهُمْ صَـغِرُونَ]

 

(and feel themselves subdued.), disgraced, humiliated and belittled. Therefore, Muslims are not allowed to honor the people of Dhimmah or elevate them above Muslims, for they are miserable, disgraced and humiliated. Muslim recorded from Abu Hurayrah that the Prophet said,

 

«لَا تَبْدَءُوا الْيَهُودَ وَالنَّصَارَى بِالسَّلَامِ، وَإِذَا لَقِيتُمْ أَحَدَهُمْ فِي طَرِيقٍ فَاضْطَرُّوهُ إِلَى أَضْيَقِه»

 

(Do not initiate the Salam to the Jews and Christians, and if you meet any of them in a road, force them to its narrowest alley.) This is why the Leader of the faithful `Umar bin Al-Khattab, may Allah be pleased with him, demanded his well-known conditions be met by the Christians, these conditions that ensured their continued humiliation, degradation and disgrace. The scholars of Hadith narrated from `Abdur-Rahman bin Ghanm Al-Ash`ari that he said, "I recorded for `Umar bin Al-Khattab, may Allah be pleased with him, the terms of the treaty of peace he conducted with the Christians of Ash-Sham: `In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful. This is a document to the servant of Allah `Umar, the Leader of the faithful, from the Christians of such and such city. When you (Muslims) came to us we requested safety for ourselves, children, property and followers of our religion. We made a condition on ourselves that we will neither erect in our areas a monastery, church, or a sanctuary for a monk, nor restore any place of worship that needs restoration nor use any of them for the purpose of enmity against Muslims. We will not prevent any Muslim from resting in our churches whether they come by day or night, and we will open the doors [of our houses of worship] for the wayfarer and passerby. Those Muslims who come as guests, will enjoy boarding and food for three days. We will not allow a spy against Muslims into our churches and homes or hide deceit [or betrayal] against Muslims. We will not teach our children the Qur'an, publicize practices of Shirk, invite anyone to Shirk or prevent any of our fellows from embracing Islam, if they choose to do so. We will respect Muslims, move from the places we sit in if they choose to sit in them. We will not imitate their clothing, caps, turbans, sandals, hairstyles, speech, nicknames and title names, or ride on saddles, hang swords on the shoulders, collect weapons of any kind or carry these weapons. We will not encrypt our stamps in Arabic, or sell liquor. We will have the front of our hair cut, wear our customary clothes wherever we are, wear belts around our waist, refrain from erecting crosses on the outside of our churches and demonstrating them and our books in public in Muslim fairways and markets. We will not sound the bells in our churches, except discretely, or raise our voices while reciting our holy books inside our churches in the presence of Muslims, nor raise our voices [with prayer] at our funerals, or light torches in funeral processions in the fairways of Muslims, or their markets. We will not bury our dead next to Muslim dead, or buy servants who were captured by Muslims. We will be guides for Muslims and refrain from breaching their privacy in their homes.' When I gave this document to `Umar, he added to it, `We will not beat any Muslim. These are the conditions that we set against ourselves and followers of our religion in return for safety and protection. If we break any of these promises that we set for your benefit against ourselves, then our Dhimmah (promise of protection) is broken and you are allowed to do with us what you are allowed of people of defiance and rebellion.'''

 

[وَقَالَتِ الْيَهُودُ عُزَيْرٌ ابْنُ اللَّهِ وَقَالَتِ النَّصَـرَى الْمَسِيحُ ابْنُ اللَّهِ ذلِكَ قَوْلُهُم بِأَفْوَهِهِمْ يُضَـهِئُونَ قَوْلَ الَّذِينَ كَفَرُواْ مِن قَبْلُ قَـتَلَهُمُ اللَّهُ أَنَّى يُؤْفَكُونَ - اتَّخَذُواْ أَحْبَـرَهُمْ وَرُهْبَـنَهُمْ أَرْبَاباً مِّن دُونِ اللَّهِ وَالْمَسِيحَ ابْنَ مَرْيَمَ وَمَآ أُمِرُواْ إِلاَّ لِيَعْبُدُواْ إِلَـهاً وَحِداً لاَّ إِلَـهَ إِلاَّ هُوَ سُبْحَـنَهُ عَمَّا يُشْرِكُونَ ]

 

(30. And the Jews say: "Uzayr (Ezra) is the son of Allah,'' and the Christians say: "The Messiah is the son of Allah.'' That is their saying with their mouths, resembling the saying of those who disbelieved aforetime. May Allah fight them, how they are deluded away from the truth!) (31. They (Jews and Christians) took their rabbis and their monks to be their lords besides Allah, and (they also took as their Lord) the Messiah, son of Maryam, while they were commanded to worship none but One God, none has the right to be worshipped but He. Praise and hallowed be He above what they associate (with Him).'')

 

 

 

Why Jihad?

E-mail Print PDF
Bismillah,

Lately I have been seeing some confusion on this issue. Why should we fight jihad? Some people think that it is best just to make da'wa, or they think that now is not the time for jihad. Some people seem to simply think that all violence is wrong, and that "Islam means peace," is some sort of daleel for not fighting jihad. Some people think that the conditions are not present for jihad. Some people think that they will be rewarded more for being a student of knowledge. Some people think that, while jihad is good and everything, they are not needed right now. Some people think that earning a degree is more important. Some people think that if they go they might die (Oh really?). Some people think their families will suffer. Some people think that they need permission from their parents, shuyookh, or those whom they are indebted to.

In sha'a Allah I am going to show you how these doubts and reservations are completely invalid in the following article.

I have already shown what it takes to meet the conditions for jihad in this post - The Key Differences Between Jihad ad-Daf' and Jihad at-Talab. (Jihad ad-Daf' is Defensive Jihad and Jihad at-Talab is Offensive Jihad)

We see from this post that the conditions of jihad are met in many situations. We also see that one does not need the permission of the parents or the loan-giver in defensive jihad. We also see that asking a scholar is not a condition under any circumstances.

However, for those who are in a lazy mood the conditions of  Jihad ad-Daf' are as follows: The enemy is either preparing to enter the Muslim lands, or the enemy has already entered them. So you see that the "conditions" are in reality the "condition." Now for it to be accepted you have to have Imaan and good intentions. So, while this might offend some in CAIR and ISNA and perhaps a Syrian Mufti or two, Christians, Jews, and Hindus there is no jihad for you. (Subhaan-Allah that sentence is accidental poetry).

There are different conditions for Jihad at-Talab, but with all of the Jihad ad-Daf' to go around, we find that for the purpose of brevity, there is no reason to go into that. The link above covers most of it.

 

Furthermore, we learn that after being a Muslim, there is nothing more obligatory than than jihad as Ibn Taymiyyah said:

Ibn Taymiyyah, raheemahumaallah, said, “So attacking the enemy who corrupts the Religion and the Dunya – nothing is more obligatory after faith than repelling him, and no conditions are set for him, rather he is repelled according to the capacity."

This means that there are no extra conditions for Jihad ad-Daf' (defensive fighting). Furthermore, Ibn Hazm said:

“And there is no greater sin after disbelief than the prohibition of Jihad against disbelievers and giving them the Muslims’ women…”

The Jihadist Next Door - New York Times

E-mail Print PDF

 

ON A WARM, cloudy day in the fall of 1999, the town of Daphne, Ala., stirred to life. The high-school band came pounding down Main Street, past the post office and the library and Christ the King Church. Trumpeters in gold-tasseled coats tipped their horns to the sky, heralding the arrival of teenage demigods. The star quarterback and his teammates came first in the parade, followed by the homecoming queen and her court. Behind them, on a float bearing leaders of the student government, a giddy mop-haired kid tossed candy to the crowd.

Omar Hammami had every right to flash his magnetic smile. He had just been elected president of his sophomore class. He was dating a luminous blonde, one of the most sought-after girls in school. He was a star in the gifted-student program, with visions of becoming a surgeon. For a 15-year-old, he had remarkable charisma.

Despite the name he acquired from his father, an immigrant from Syria, Hammami was every bit as Alabaman as his mother, a warm, plain-spoken woman who sprinkles her conversation with blandishments like “sugar” and “darlin’.” Brought up a Southern Baptist, Omar went to Bible camp as a boy and sang “Away in a Manger” on Christmas Eve. As a teenager, his passions veered between Shakespeare and Kurt Cobain, soccer and Nintendo. In the thick of his adolescence, he was fearless, raucously funny, rebellious, contrarian. “It felt cool just to be with him,” his best friend at the time, Trey Gunter, said recently. “You knew he was going to be a leader.”

A decade later, Hammami has fulfilled that promise in the most unimaginable way. Some 8,500 miles from Alabama, on the eastern edge of Africa, he has become a key figure in one of the world’s most ruthless Islamist insurgencies. That guerrilla army, known as the Shabab, is fighting to overthrow the fragile American-backed Somali government. The rebels are known for beheading political enemies, chopping off the hands of thieves and stoning women accused of adultery. With help from Al Qaeda, they have managed to turn Somalia into an ever more popular destination for jihadis from around the world.

"Patriotism" "Machoism," and Profit: Obama the War President

E-mail Print PDF
Myriam Miedzian

In 2009, an Afghan-American defense contractor, Hamed Wardak, hired Patton Boggs, a blue chip lobbying firm to push for an extended U.S. presence in Afghanistan. The lobbying firm in turn set up a nonprofit front group -- the Campaign for a U.S. Afghanistan Partnership -- on Wardak's behalf to act as the "face" of a campaign for increased U.S. engagement in Afghanistan.

Here we go again! In late 2002, The Committee for the Liberation of Iraq (CLI) was set up by Bruce Jackson, a former Lockheed Martin vice president. And we all know what happened in March 2003.

The role that weapons manufacturers and others who stand to profit from wars play in fostering unnecessary wars -- by fomenting war scares, libeling those who are anti-war as unpatriotic, bribing government officials both illegally and legally via campaign contributions, influencing much of the media etc. -- has been widely documented and reported by H.C. Englebrecht, author of the aptly titled Merchants of Death, Norman Cousins, author of The Pathology of Power, and many others.

Our long standing tradition of viewing support for war as patriotic and opposition as unpatriotic plays right into the hands of the people who stand to make money from those wars, and leads much of the media to applaud wars, however unnecessary, and to condemn those who are against them. Back in the 19th century, Republican Abraham Lincoln was vilified as a "moral traitor" in the Illinois press because of his opposition to the Mexican-American war.

The other ingredient in the pro-war mix is captured in a recent New York Times article entitled: "The Label Factor: Is Obama a Wimp or Warrior?" Helen Cooper writes,"Like every Democratic president since John F. Kennedy, President Obama is battling the perception that he's a wimp on national security." In what appears to be an escalation in macho criteria, his sending 30,000 more troops to Afghanistan, stepping up drone strikes in Pakistan, and other belligerent measures, are still not enough to establish Obama's macho credentials. He must also learn to talk really tough -- as in stating that we are at war with terrorists -- and he must get rapid results for whatever non-combative steps he takes with Iran, Russia, North Korea, or any other nation that we have conflicts with.

As Cooper points out, the concern about Obama's toughness is not limited to Republicans. For example, Foreign Policy magazine recently had a cover of Mr. Obama next to that "notorious wimp" Jimmy Carter with an equal sign in the middle. 

Even though he is Commander in Chief, for a president to not follow the orders of his generals, to resist military action when they call for it, to fail to allocate the funds they request, is probably the most politically high risk action he can take, for it leads to accusations of being unmanly, wimpy, weak on defense and endangering our national security. The implied lack of patriotism is intensified in President Obama's case since 58% of Republicans and 33% of all Americans either believe that he is not a U.S. citizen, or have serious doubts. 

And so, unlike President Kennedy who took the risk of not following the numerous military officials and cabinet members who pressed for an air assault on Soviet missile sites in Cuba -- which may well have led to a nuclear holocaust --. President Obama, has chosen to follow military advice on Afghanistan.

By doing so, he, plays right into the hands of Osama Bin Laden who sees the presence of American military forces in Muslim countries as bleeding America to the point of bankruptcy without achieving any positive results. According to his "peacenik" son Omar, Bin Laden was thrilled when George W. Bush became president. Nothing like a highly belligerent president to humiliate and enrage Muslims by sending Christians, Jews, and women to fight and kill Muslims on their own soil. As Bin Laden fully expected, thanks to Dubya, Al Qaeda "franchises" have sprung up in numerous countries on several continents.

The truth is that we are not at war. We are trying to prevent mostly young male terrorists -- who live in countries which include Yemen, Nigeria, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Germany, France, England, Holland, Canada, the U.S. -- from blowing us up or gassing us. There is no end in sight as long as macho talk, posturing, and action continue to win over thoughtful, informed long range defense planning. 

The combination of mindless "patriotism" and "machoism" goaded on by financial interests, comes at a very high human cost. In his book about the men who ran the Vietnam war, David Halberstam informs us that "the thing Johnson feared the most was... that his manhood was inadequate." When a member of his administration started to "go soft"on the war, Johnson dismissed him with , "hell he has to squat to piss." Result of Johnson's need to prove himself macho: approximately 60,000 Americans and 2 million Vietnamese killed.

Dubya with his "manly" swagger, tough talk, and extreme lack of empathy, was the very embodiment of mindless macho -- at least when it came to risking the lives of others. Result of this tough guy presidency: so far approximately 5,300 Americans and according to the very lowest estimates,100,000 Iraqis have been killed. Approximately two million Iraqis have fled the country. 

The macho-patriotism intimidation factor allows the Pentagon to enjoy enormous and largely unquestioned budgets. The revolving door between the military and weapons manufacturers facilitates pushing war in order to make big bucks. Unlike questioning government expenditures on health, education, infrastructure, the president and members of congress, as well as the mainstream media, know that seriously questioning the Pentagon budget is tabu.

In 2008, an internal audit revealed that Pentagon expenditures included close to $15 billion in Iraq war goods and services that were unaccounted for. Many members of congress expressed their intense shock and dismay, but this did not stop them for going on to vote for increases in military spending. In his State of the Union speech, President Obama called for a three year freeze on many domestic programs. At the same time he has asked congress for an extra $33 billion for the Pentagon, to add to the $708 billion budget already approved for next year. Not to worry; he'll get it.

President Obama, Do You Know Your Federal Courts Are Not Open to the Public?

E-mail Print PDF

This is an article from someone who has been very active in supporting Sister Aafia. It is true, anybody that goes to the trial now is ID'ed and I myself clashed with the court over this issue. I am not so sure Obama gives a damn, but it certainly does suggest an initiative that will be reproduced and probably become the norm. The fascists are coming and no one cares. People, it really is time to get up and mobilize a comprehensive solution to our issues.

Pakistan USA Freedom Forum is asking everyone to support our demand that Dr. Aafia Siddiqui receive a fair trial, currently under way in New York's Federal District Court, 500 Pearl St., Room 21B, before Judge Richard Berman. Never before have court officials harassed supporters by taking names and I.D. numbers before they entered a courtroom. Such intimidation denies Dr. Aafia a free, fair and open trial. We protest this abuse.

On Thursday, January 21, when Shahid Comrade went to enter the courtroom of Judge Berman, the martial asked him, as he had asked everyone else entering that courtroom, to show him his ID so he could write down his name and number. Comrade refused, and stated that this was against the Constitution of the United States. The marshal stated that this was the order that he had been given by the Chief Marshal. Comrade found noted civil-rights attorney Norman Siegel, who was in the court building on another matter and told him what had happened. Together, they went to the Chief Marshal of the New York Federal District Court, on the fourth floor of 500 Pearl St. After the Marshal asked Comrade to remain outside, Siegel spoke to the Chief Marshal asking him to rescind the order. The Chief Marshal told Siegel he would get back to him. So far, this order has not been lifted.

Afterwards, Siegel told Comrade that, in his 40 years as a practicing attorney, he has never heard of a trial in which visitors were told they had to provide their names and ID numbers to get into a trial, and to his mind this was unconstitutional. Pakistan USA Freedom Forum wishes to thank Norman Siegel for all his assistance in his defense of civil rights and the Constitution.

Pakistan USA Freedom Forum is asking all organizations concerned with human, civil and constitutional rights, political parties and media to demand fair and open courts, insisting that Judge Berman Federal District Court halt this intimidating attempt to deny justice to Dr. Aafia Siddiqui.

We would also like to thank all those who gave support once they heard that officials were ignoring the Constitution. We particularly want to thank Sara Flounders, one of the leaders of Workers World Party, and all those who attended her talk last Friday who stood up and applauded the immigrants and Muslims who stood up for the cause of civil rights in the United States. We will never walk away from sacrifices for the cause of humanity.

Pakistan USA Freedom Forum demands that Judge Richard Berman and the Courts halt the collection of supporters' names and I.D. numbers, publicly identify why this information was collected, whether this information was shared with any other agencies and destroy any data collected in the process.

An end to this intimidating practice will help ensure a fair and open trial for Dr. Aafia Siddiqui and all people brought before the court. We ask President Obama to send the New York Chief Marshal, and all marshals in the Federal Courts, to a refresher course on the Constitution of the United States.

Yunus Abdullah Muhammad with Harold Channer

E-mail Print PDF

It was a good conversation although Mr. Channer admitted he has very little tolerance for the mention of god and religion, which must of course be our primary axiomatic foundation from which we stem the remainder of a discussion on economics and so we clashed a bit. It would have been wonderful if there were more time and we spoke for several hours afterwards. Mr. Channer is a class act, a positive man, and open-minded person. It is hard in today's world where the West has really put religion aside as any possible solution and avoids it like the plague. I think we set a trend in giving interviews and never being called back for a second jaunt, LOL! I will post the entire video with ending after it is released and it will air on television next Thursday and we hope to get some dialougue with the community through it. It takes a great deal of fairness to even host a guest like me. That in and of itself is enough to suggest that we hold a great deal of respect for this man, so please no insulting and harsh comments, only words of analysis or questions for elaboration. I, on the other hand, am open to any and all expletives. So, feel free to condemn. Jazakallah Khair!
