[3] Zionism – [Intoxication with desire for control and an absence of sound rectification]

In The Name of Allah, The Most Merciful, The Bestower of Mercy.

Allah [The Exalted] said:

وَإِذَا قُلۡتُمۡ فَٱعۡدِلُواْ وَلَوۡ ڪَانَ ذَا قُرۡبَىٰ‌ۖ

And when you testify, be just, even if (it concerns) a near relative. [a]

When you testify by way of a statement to judge between people, differentiate between them in a discourse, and speak regarding matters and circumstances, be just in your speech, adhere to truthfulness regarding those you love and those you hate, be fair and do not conceal what needs to be made clear because it is forbidden and tantamount to injustice to divert (from justice and fairness) when speaking against the one you hate. [b]

Therefore, we remind ourselves of the fact that not all Jews are engaged in the plots of the Zionists, as Shaikh Abu Iyaad [may Allah preserve him] stated, “It is important to note that not all Jews are involved in these intrigues and the Jews as a population have, throughout history, been subject to the whims and desires of their religious and political leaders, and have been made to undergo much persecution as a result”. Must read:

At the beginning of the seventeenth century CE, the Puritan Revolution took place in England, so the Puritans and the Christian Zionists demanded that the government declare the Torah a constitution for English law because the Old Testament – according to its demands – is the heavenly path of the national government and the clear indication of the laws that must be followed by humankind, and if disobeyed, then punishment would be clearly visible and inevitable. In the middle of the seventeenth century, the Christian Zionists began writing treaties declaring that all Jews must leave Europe for Palestine. Oliver Cromwell, who strongly supported the Puritans and defended them in Parliament, declared, in his capacity as patron of the British Commonwealth, that the Jewish presence in Palestine was what would pave the way for the coming of the Messiah the second time.

In the year 1649 CE, two Christian Zionists, residing in Amsterdam, sent a petition to the English government, which stated, “Let the people of England and the inhabitants of the Netherlands be the first to carry the sons and daughters of Israel on their ships to the land promised to their ancestors, Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, to be their inheritance”. In the year 1654 CE, Oliver Cromwell became President of the Republic in England, and he clearly supported the Christian Zionists. Before that, in the year 1621, Henry Finch, the legal advisor to the King of England, wrote with the title, “The Great Universal Restoration” in which he called on the Christian princes to combine their forces to restore “the empire of the Jewish nation”. Some writers considered that this was the first English project to recapture Palestine for the Jews. [1] [End of quote]

May Allah preserve the Muslim and strengthen the Muslim leaders. Imaam Abdul Azeez Bin Baaz [may Allah have mercy upon him] stated: “As for the Zionist ideological (or intellectual war), it is like (the Crusader ideological war), and they spare no effort to corrupt the Muslims in their morals and beliefs. They have ambitions in Muslim countries and elsewhere. They have plans, some of which have been fulfilled, and they are still working hard to achieve the rest. Even if they fight Muslims with force and weapons, and seize some of their lands, they also fight them with their thoughts and beliefs. This is why they spread – within the ranks of the Muslims – false principles, (innovated) religious paths, and sects, such as freemasonry, Qaadiyaaniyyah, Bahaa’iyyah, Tijaaniyyah and other than them, and they seek the help of Christians and others to achieve their goals and objectives”. [2]

The Imaam also stated: “As for the Muslim who is subjected to this vicious invasion (i.e. intellectual or ideological war), he becomes unperceptive and sick in his thoughts, because he does not see a danger in the presence of Christians or others in his land; rather he may see that this is one of the signs of goodness, and one that helps in progression and civilization. So, the Christian (invaders) suffice with the intellectual war because it is stronger and more established, for what need do they have to send armies and spend money in the presence of those (brainwashed Muslims) who do what they want with the children of Islam, intentionally or unintentionally, with or without a price?! Therefore, they do not resort to fighting Muslims openly with weapons and force, except in the rare and necessary cases that call for it urgently, as happened in the war against Uganda or Pakistan, or when there is a need for it to establish their programs and organizations, and set up institutions that would carry out fierce intellectual war, as happened in Egypt, Syria, Iraq, and others before the evacuation”. [2.1]

Al-Allaamah Rabee Bin Haadi Al-Mad’khali [may Allah preserve him] stated: So it is not permissible for the Ulamaa to remain heedless of their plans (i.e. the enemies of Islaam), their actions, their publications, their missionary activities, and their various calls (to the Muslims). And also the various poisons they are infusing – which are in opposition to the Qur’an and the Messenger (sallallaahu alayhi wasallam) and his Sunnah. And nor of what plans they have for (the destruction of) the beliefs and methodologies of Islaam. It is not permissible either, to remain heedless of their concentrated efforts to Christianize or secularize the Muslim youth. And along with that, the Muslim youth and the students are not able to oppose this plan and strategy. Rather it is necessary that the distinguished Ulamaa – those who are experienced and shrewd – it is for such people, in all the places to undertake this duty. So it is obligatory for some of the intelligent and ingenious people from the field of Aqeedah to be mobilised to oppose these plans. And likewise, it is a must that the intelligent and distinguished from amongst the specialists in the Sunnah – are mobilised for the refutation of these and similarly the eminent and distinguished from amongst those in the fields of Orientalism for the refutation of the plans of the Orientalists.” [3]

The Shaikh also stated: “I myself believe that it is a benefit – rather it is of necessity – that we know what the enemies are planning for us, and that it is necessary for us to prepare (ourselves in strength) to destroy their plans. However, I do not exaggerate in this matter, rather my view is the view of our Ulamaa and they have all agreed upon this – that amongst the obligatory matters, there are some that are Fard Ain and others that are Fard Kifaayah – and even if knowing the state of the enemies is harmful – it is still necessary for us to know it – but it is treated as Fard Kifaayah. When some attend to it, then the harm is removed from the rest” up until he said: “So I consider that there is no criticism for the Ulamaa and the students of knowledge who take great concern for preserving the Sharee’ah of Allaah – in terms of the Book, the Sunnah, and its understanding – for this is one of the duties of the Kifaayah actions. And I believe that these people are more superior, noble, truthful and of more benefit to Islaam than those who are weak in their knowledge of the religion of Allaah or those who have no share in acquainting themselves with it.” [4]
