“We have a mandate from the Almighty that we are an eternal nation that can never be expunged”: Brief Responses to Deluded Rabbi Stewart Weiss – [Part 1]

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

Allah – The Exalted- says:

وَلَا تَلْبِسُوا الْحَقَّ بِالْبَاطِلِ وَتَكْتُمُوا الْحَقَّ وَأَنتُمْ تَعْلَمُونَ

And mix not truth with falsehood, nor conceal the truth while you know (the truth). [Al-Baqarah 42]

Imam Ibn Al-Qayyim [may Allah have mercy upon him] said: “Allah forbade us from mixing truth with falsehood, thus it leads to the concealment of the truth. This mixing occurs when the two are combined in such a way that one becomes indistinguishable from the other. It is a form of forgery and deceit, where what appears to be true is actually the opposite in reality. Similarly, when truth is intertwined with falsehood, the perpetrator presents falsehood in the guise of truth and communicates with a statement that carries dual meanings – one that is accurate and another that is false. Consequently, the listener is deceived into believing that the speaker intends the genuine meaning, while in reality, the speaker intends the corrupt interpretation”. [1]

In an article penned by Stewart Weiss for the Jerusalem Post, entitled “World War III has begun: A war on truth, freedom, and justice”, he began by stating: “While this world war revolves around the acquisition of land and partisan belief systems, it is also a War on Freedom, a War on Justice, and a War on Truth”.

Response:

Let us remind Stewart that Allah says:

يَٰٓأَهْلَ ٱلْكِتَٰبِ قَدْ جَآءَكُمْ رَسُولُنَا يُبَيِّنُ لَكُمْ كَثِيرًا مِّمَّا كُنتُمْ تُخْفُونَ مِنَ ٱلْكِتَٰبِ وَيَعْفُوا۟ عَن كَثِيرٍ قَدْ جَآءَكُم مِّنَ ٱللَّهِ نُورٌ وَكِتَٰبٌ مُّبِينٌ
يَهْدِى بِهِ ٱللَّهُ مَنِ ٱتَّبَعَ رِضْوَٰنَهُۥ سُبُلَ ٱلسَّلَٰمِ وَيُخْرِجُهُم مِّنَ ٱلظُّلُمَٰتِ إِلَى ٱلنُّورِ بِإِذْنِهِۦ وَيَهْدِيهِمْ إِلَىٰ صِرَٰطٍ مُّسْتَقِيمٍ

O people of the Scripture! Now has come to you Our Messenger (Muhammad) explaining to you much of that which you used to hide from the Scripture and passing over (i.e. leaving out without explaining) much. Indeed, there has come to you from Allah a light (Prophet Muhammad) and a plain Book (this Quran). 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). [Al-Ma’idah. 15-16]

Stewart ascribes to an abrogated and distorted belief system, whereas the true adherents of the final revelation are upon clear guidance. He is responsible for his condemnable partisanship, while trying to rationalise it by claiming that others are also partisan toward their beliefs. It should be noted that while humans and Jinn have been granted free will to make choices between guidance and misguidance, the only belief system accepted by Allah is the final revelation – the Qur’an and the Sunnah. Allah says:

وَمَن يَبْتَغِ غَيْرَ ٱلْإِسْلَٰمِ دِينًا فَلَن يُقْبَلَ مِنْهُ وَهُوَ فِى ٱلْءَاخِرَةِ مِنَ ٱلْخَٰسِرِينَ

And whoever seeks a religion other than Islam, it will never be accepted of him, and in the Hereafter he will be one of the losers. [3:85]

Hence, those who submit are guided, while those who reject it, like Stewart, are misguided. Furthermore, the acquisition of land by Stewart’s allies is founded upon reprehensible conduct that is detested by all morally upright individuals, as no rational person would support the actions of the Zionist thieves who unlawfully seize land daily. Regarding the so-called war on freedom, it is important to recognise that true freedom lies in surrendering oneself to the will of the Creator, rather than succumbing to personal desires or adhering to an invalidated and distorted Scripture. Similarly, the pursuit of truth and justice can only be achieved by adhering to the final revelation, rather than relying on subjective opinions and personal desires. Shaikh Al-Islam Ibn Taymiyyah [may Allah have mercy upon him] said, “Even though there is something in the paths of analogical reasoning and reflection that will lead to knowledge, however sometimes it cannot give a detailed explanation in a dispute between the people of the earth due to the minute details and ambiguities, and at other times due to the fact the people differ when prioritising necessities. Therefore, due to this Allah [The Most High] commanded us to return to the revelation in times of dispute. Allah [The Most High] says:

كَانَ ٱلنَّاسُ أُمَّةً۬ وَٲحِدَةً۬ فَبَعَثَ ٱللَّهُ ٱلنَّبِيِّـۧنَ مُبَشِّرِينَ وَمُنذِرِينَ وَأَنزَلَ مَعَهُمُ ٱلۡكِتَـٰبَ بِٱلۡحَقِّ لِيَحۡكُمَ بَيۡنَ ٱلنَّاسِ فِيمَا ٱخۡتَلَفُواْ فِيهِ‌ۚ

Mankind was one community (i.e. upon Tawheed and Allah’s Shari’ah) and Allah sent Prophets with glad tidings and warnings, and with them, He sent the Scripture in truth to judge between people in matters wherein they differed]. [Al-Baqarah. 213] [2]

Stewart stated: “Let me begin by saying, unequivocally, that I am not an alarmist by nature. In fact, I am a confirmed optimist, especially when it comes to Israel and the Jewish people”.

Response:

Believing in an abrogated and distorted Scripture and rejecting the final Messenger, is even more detrimental than being an alarmist. We remind him once again that Allah says:

يَٰٓأَهْلَ ٱلْكِتَٰبِ قَدْ جَآءَكُمْ رَسُولُنَا يُبَيِّنُ لَكُمْ كَثِيرًا مِّمَّا كُنتُمْ تُخْفُونَ مِنَ ٱلْكِتَٰبِ وَيَعْفُوا۟ عَن كَثِيرٍ قَدْ جَآءَكُم مِّنَ ٱللَّهِ نُورٌ وَكِتَٰبٌ مُّبِينٌ
يَهْدِى بِهِ ٱللَّهُ مَنِ ٱتَّبَعَ رِضْوَٰنَهُۥ سُبُلَ ٱلسَّلَٰمِ وَيُخْرِجُهُم مِّنَ ٱلظُّلُمَٰتِ إِلَى ٱلنُّورِ بِإِذْنِهِۦ وَيَهْدِيهِمْ إِلَىٰ صِرَٰطٍ مُّسْتَقِيمٍ

O people of the Scripture! Now has come to you Our Messenger (Muhammad) explaining to you much of that which you used to hide from the Scripture and passing over (i.e. leaving out without explaining) much. Indeed, there has come to you from Allah a light (Prophet Muhammad) and a plain Book (this Quran). 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). [Al-Ma’idah. 15-16]

Stewart stated: “We have a mandate from the Almighty that we are an eternal nation that can never be expunged; we have gone head to head against the great empires of history and watched them fade into oblivion while we survive, against all odds. And, as far as our presence in Israel goes, despite having twice been exiled from our land, we believe that this time we are here to stay and will not be expelled again”.

Response:

The final revelation given to the last Messenger and the signs of the end of time have been disclosed, along with what will occur to you and others in terms of good or evil, as well as the corruption you, specifically, will spread on the earth. It’s important to recognise that witnessing the downfall of great empires throughout history and surviving is not unique to you. Many nations from the past still have their descendants present today. However, you were among those favoured when you acted righteously, and you have also experienced severe punishment when you became rebellious, sinful, and wicked. Allah says:

وَقَضَيۡنَآ إِلَىٰ بَنِىٓ إِسۡرَٲٓءِيلَ فِى ٱلۡكِتَـٰبِ لَتُفۡسِدُنَّ فِى ٱلۡأَرۡضِ مَرَّتَيۡنِ وَلَتَعۡلُنَّ عُلُوًّ۬ا ڪَبِيرً۬ا

And We decreed for the Children of Israel in the Scripture, that indeed you would do mischief on the earth twice and you will become tyrants and extremely arrogant! [Al-Israa. Ayah 4]- Meaning, “We have declared, made a covenant with them and told them in their book that corruption will certainly occur from them on earth twice through committing sins, showing ingratitude to Allah for His Blessings, exalting themselves on earth and being arrogant therein; and that when one of these two (occasions) come to pass, Allah will give power to their enemies and take revenge on them, and this is an admonition and warning to them so that they may return to obedience and take heed”. [a]

فَإِذَا جَآءَ وَعۡدُ أُولَٮٰهُمَا بَعَثۡنَا عَلَيۡڪُمۡ عِبَادً۬ا لَّنَآ أُوْلِى بَأۡسٍ۬ شَدِيدٍ۬ فَجَاسُواْ خِلَـٰلَ ٱلدِّيَارِ‌ۚ وَكَانَ وَعۡدً۬ا مَّفۡعُولاً۬

So, when the promise came for the first of the two, We sent against you slaves of Ours given to terrible warfare. They entered the very innermost parts of your homes. And it was a promise (completely) fulfilled. [Al-Israa. Ayah 5] – Meaning, the first of the two occasions during which they become corrupt; if such corruption occurred among them, We sent on you – by way of our all-encompassing divine will and decree- recompense (punishment) at the hands of those people with courage, large numbers, and armed, so, Allah gave them victory over you. They killed you, took your children away, plundered your wealth, invaded and destroyed your homes, entered the Sacred Masjid (Baytul Maqdis), and violated it. It must happen due to a reason from themselves. The Qur’an commentators differed regarding the identity of these people who were sent to overpower them, but they agreed that they were unbelievers. Either they were from the people of Iraq, the Arabian Peninsula, or elsewhere, whom Allah gave (the strength) to overpower the Children of Israel when their sins became rife, they abandoned much of their Shariah, and transgressed in the land. [b]

ثُمَّ رَدَدۡنَا لَكُمُ ٱلۡڪَرَّةَ عَلَيۡہِمۡ وَأَمۡدَدۡنَـٰكُم بِأَمۡوَٲلٍ۬ وَبَنِينَ وَجَعَلۡنَـٰكُمۡ أَڪۡثَرَ نَفِيرًا

Then We gave you once again, a return of victory over them. And We helped you with wealth and children and made you more numerous in manpower. [Al-Israa. Ayah 6] – Meaning, (gave you victory) against those who overpowered you, so you expelled them from your land; increased your sustenance and number, and gave you strength over them because of your righteous deeds and submission to Allah. [c]

إِنۡ أَحۡسَنتُمۡ أَحۡسَنتُمۡ لِأَنفُسِكُمۡ‌ۖ وَإِنۡ أَسَأۡتُمۡ فَلَهَا‌ۚ فَإِذَا جَآءَ وَعۡدُ ٱلۡأَخِرَةِ لِيَسُـۥۤـُٔواْ وُجُوهَڪُمۡ وَلِيَدۡخُلُواْ ٱلۡمَسۡجِدَ ڪَمَا دَخَلُوهُ أَوَّلَ مَرَّةٍ۬ وَلِيُتَبِّرُواْ مَا عَلَوۡاْ تَتۡبِيرًا

(And We said): ‘If you do good, you do good for your own selves, and if you do evil, then it is (to your own selves).’ Then when the later promise came to pass (We enabled your enemies) to put sorrow on your faces (by conquering and enslaving you) and to enter the Mosque (of Jerusalem), as they had entered it the first time, and to destroy everything they came upon with utter destruction. [Al-Israa. Ayah 7] [d]

“If you do good, you do good for your own selves” because the benefit will return to you, even in this world [before the hereafter] as you witnessed when he aided you against your enemies. “And if you do evil, then it is [to your ownselves]”, meaning, the harm will return upon yourselves, as Allāh showed you by empowering the enemies [against you]. [e]

“Then when the later promise came to pass”- meaning, the next time you spread corruption on earth, we make your enemies overpower you. “to put sorrow on your faces (by conquering and enslaving you)”- Meaning, given victory over you, capture you, and enter the Sacred Masjid as they entered it the first time, and what is meant by the Mosque is Baytul Maqdis. “and to destroy everything they came upon with utter destruction”- Meaning, destroy your homes, Masjids and crops. [f]

عَسَىٰ رَبُّكُمۡ أَن يَرۡحَمَكُمۡ‌ۚ وَإِنۡ عُدتُّمۡ عُدۡنَا‌ۘ وَجَعَلۡنَا جَهَنَّمَ لِلۡكَـٰفِرِينَ حَصِيرًا

(Thereafter Allāh said): ‘Perhaps your Lord may show mercy to you (if you repent), but if you return (to your sinful ways), then We shall return (to punishment). And we have made Hell an enclosure for the disbelievers. [Al-Israa. Ayah 8] [g]

Within these verses (Al-Israa 7) (al-Israa 8) is a warning to this Ummah (of Muhammad) against committing acts of disobedience lest what afflicted the Children of Israel afflict them as well. The Sunnah (way, rule) of Allāh is one, it does not change or become altered. Whoever looks [and reflects] upon the empowerment of the disbelievers and oppressors over the Muslims will come to know that this was due to their sins, as a punishment to them. [And also to make them realise] that if they enact and establish the Book of Allāh and the Sunnah of His Messenger, He will grant them firm authority in the land and aid them against their enemies. [h] [End of quote]

Hence, we conclude this first section by notifying Stewart that they have not been granted or obligated anything other than to adhere to the path of the final Messenger Muhammad, heed his teachings, and renounce disbelief, wrongdoing, and arrogance. This obligation applies to them, as well as the rest of humanity and Jinn. However, if they choose to disregard this obligation, then the Messenger’s sole responsibility is to convey the message. Moreover, this does not negate the rights they are entitled to through fair dealings, despite their oppressive, ruthless, and indifferent behaviour towards the Palestinians, coupled with their detestable arrogance, deceit, self-delusion, and unwarranted sense of entitlement, while they have been unlawfully seizing land and causing harm to Palestinians for more than seven decades. Therefore, even if we were to focus solely on this first section, it would be sufficient to expose Stewart’s desperate and deceitful attempt to conceal or confuse the truth regarding partisanship, the acquisition of land, the war on truth, freedom, and justice. Nevertheless, it is imperative to recognise that while Netanyahu and the Zionists are widely regarded as oppressive figures in our current era, primarily due to their treatment of the Palestinians, it is essential to unequivocally condemn extremist factions such as Hamas that deliberately target innocent civilians. To gain a deeper understanding of this complex issue, I suggest delving into the article penned by Shaikh Abu Iyad titled: [Just Rules of Fighting in the Sharīʿah of Islām Compared to Genocidal, Ethnic-Cleansing, Tribal-Vengeance Doctrines and Excesses of Trojan-Horse Muslim Extremists: https://www.abuiyaad.com/a/nuscluvdq ]

Remind those who support Netanyahu about the verse: “And incline not toward those who do wrong, lest the Fire should touch you, and you have no protectors other than Allah, nor you would then be helped”.

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

وَلَا تَرْكَنُوا إِلَى الَّذِينَ ظَلَمُوا فَتَمَسَّكُمُ النَّارُ وَمَا لَكُم مِّن دُونِ اللَّهِ مِنْ أَوْلِيَاءَ ثُمَّ لَا تُنصَرُونَ

And incline not toward those who do wrong, lest the Fire should touch you, and you have no protectors other than Allah, nor you would then be helped. (Hud: 113)

Al-Allamah Rabee Bin Hadi al-Mad’khali [may Allah preserve him] stated: Do not incline towards the oppressors – those who unjustly harm the people, by shedding their blood, seizing their wealth, and violating their honour. They may also oppress the people in matters of religion through bidah, misguidance, and spreading harmful propaganda that contradicts Islam. Avoid associating with any of these individuals; do not support or assist them in their falsehood. The verse covers all categories of oppressors. Every follower of falsehood, every innovator in religious matters, and anyone who dishonours a Muslim is considered an oppressor. Therefore, refrain from aligning yourself with any of them to avoid being affected by the fire of hell. When you incline towards a sinner, an innovator in religious affairs, an oppressor, a criminal, someone who dishonours others, or those who violate the sanctity of the divine legislation, it is as if you are pleased with them, as if you are aiding and abetting them. [1]

This describes the connection between the Zionists, their allies in the United States and other countries, the media, and the gatherings they organize to strengthen their suppression of the Palestinians. The Zionist media, in their relentless pursuit, aims to present a distorted image of reality. Instead of having a well-defined vision of the world, they choose to live in a delusional state, imposing their fanciful and irrational perspective on others. They strive to project a false image of themselves, disregarding the undeniable truth of their actions, which only reveals their complete detachment from reality. In their twisted world, they navigate through a distorted reality where truth is flipped on their heads. They strive to make the impossible possible, all while asserting their right to exist not out of reason, but out of a sense of entitlement that trumps the needs of others. In their world, words hold whatever meaning they choose to assign to them. Therefore, we remind those who aid Netanyahu that Allah says:

وَلَا تَرْكَنُوا إِلَى الَّذِينَ ظَلَمُوا فَتَمَسَّكُمُ النَّارُ وَمَا لَكُم مِّن دُونِ اللَّهِ مِنْ أَوْلِيَاءَ ثُمَّ لَا تُنصَرُونَ

And incline not toward those who do wrong, lest the Fire should touch you, and you have no protectors other than Allah, nor you would then be helped. (Hud: 113)

Indeed, the pre-October 7th Zionist endeavour is well-known; however, October 7th merely represents an extension of 70 years of relentless savagery and annihilation, cunningly disguised as warfare and vindicated under the guise of self-preservation and countering transgressions against their territorial integrity. In their perspective, the atrocities inflicted upon them by the senseless imbeciles of Hamas serve as the foundation for the ceaseless conflict, wherein they have murdered more than 36,000 Palestinians in pursuit of a so-called righteous vengeance. It is indeed correct to assert that the borders were violated and the audacious acts of Hamas caused harm to innocent civilians. However, it is important to acknowledge that these borders were never rightfully owned by them. Instead, they were acquired through a relentless cycle of savagery, bloodshed, and unscrupulous plunder spanning over seven decades. Furthermore, the situation is analysed through a dual perspective, with the Zionists portrayed as malevolent tyrants and thieves, while Hamas is depicted as harmful idiots who ignore the strategic approach to survival and the concept of choosing the lesser evil, as clarified by the eurudite Islamic scholars. These scholars have constantly cautioned against provoking the heartless Zionists, who are notorious for their history of cruelty and their insatiable desire for genocide. Nevertheless, Hamas serves as nothing more than unwitting pawns in the grand scheme orchestrated by the Zionists. Read here: https://abuiyaad.com/w/hamas-israeli-right

The Zionist media, in a state of delusion, falsely claim that there is a manipulative distortion of facts and language, such as the term “genocide,” as none of their leaders have openly expressed a desire to wipe out the Palestinians. Furthermore, they persistently try to draw parallels between the deaths of over 36,000 Palestinians, including innocent women and children, and the casualties of some non-combatants among their own people. While they decry the atrocities committed by Hamas, captured on GoPro cameras, we must acknowledge that such actions are unacceptable. However, the entire world witnesses the brutal Zionist forces engaging in acts of genocide under the guise of retaliation.

They argue that they are unjustly blamed for “apartheid” and deserve recognition for granting equal rights to all their people regardless of race, religion, etc. Nevertheless, we must remind them that the world witnesses the undeniable truth that the Palestinians are deprived of basic freedoms, such as the ability to move freely or live peacefully in their own homes, due to the constant fear of brutal attacks, starvation, and more. Hence, their longing for unearned praise is akin to an armed robber pretending to be generous with the riches they have stolen, just like how we witness the Zionists seizing land and bestowing it upon their supposed favored race. Nevertheless, despite their wickedness being as clear as daylight, they object to being labeled as colonialists, even while they have persistently oppress the native inhabitants and incessantly confiscating their belongings for more than seven decades. It is completely understandable why Netanyahu expresses the intention of genocide, given all of this behavior. Read here: https://abuiyaad.com/a/amalekite-genocide-doctrine-gaza

The entire world observed Netanyahu’s remarks, however, supporters of the Zionists in the United States and other places argue that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Defence Minister Yoav Gallant are not responsible for crimes against humanity. Anyone who suggests otherwise is labelled as a “white-collar anti-Semite,” as seen in the comments made by Evangelical Pastor Johnnie Moore.

The Zionists’ American supporters, despite their desperate attempts and manipulation, can no longer conceal the truth. These manipulators not only provide weapons and intelligence to the Zionists but also aid them in prolonging their deceitful actions. They constantly seek to apologise for the IDF’s atrocities while using Hamas as a reckless distraction. Additionally, there exist certain factions who are unwilling to publicly disassociate themselves from Netanyahu due to concerns about jeopardising their personal finances. Therefore, they opt to remain silent as this self-serving wrongdoer, psychopath, and power-hungry individual continues to harm innocent women and children under the guise of combating Hamas and defending themselves. A person is deeply disturbed by the evident timidity and greed of these ideologues as they allow Netanyahu to put himself in situations where he must resort to evasive language to shirk his responsibilities. Therefore, whether Netanyahu is permitted to perpetuate his acts of genocide or not has now become a matter that clearly distinguishes between individuals of integrity and those who have forsaken their honour, despite their desperate desire to be seen as champions of justice and fairness. They will never make a decision that contradicts Netanyahu’s preferences or demands. Netanyahu himself has not aided his cause, as evidenced by his use of genocidal rhetoric while citing distorted and abrogated religious texts. However, some individuals vociferously defend him, rather they cowardly or deceitfully pay homage to him for his alleged efforts to minimise civilian casualties, dismissing all valid accusations of genocide or arrest warrants against him as unhelpful or even anti-Semitic. Read again here: https://abuiyaad.com/a/amalekite-genocide-doctrine-gaza

It is truly astonishing how some of these American and Western ideologues strive to be seen as champions of human dignity, yet they continue to support Netanyahu despite his actions. He has been responsible for the bombing and starvation of innocent Palestinian civilians in Gaza, while also attempting to suppress any organisation that exposes his war crimes. His intelligence agencies have been deployed to pressure, smear, and even allegedly threaten those who investigate his crimes. Surprisingly, certain Western and American journalists, demagogues, ideologues, and rabble-rousers argue that those pursuing Netanyahu should have trusted his Zionist government’s ability to investigate and prosecute its own war criminals, rather than seeking arrest warrants for him and Yoav Gallant. Meanwhile, Netanyahu persists in weaponising charges of “terrorism” against anyone who supports the rights of Palestinians. Despite all of this, Netanyahu claims that he and his followers represent the forces of enlightenment – a pitiful form of psychological warfare that demonstrates the expansion of the battleground beyond mere physical clashes. His objective is to crush the morale and determination of an entire nation, and this calculated campaign was initiated by Netanyahu even before the 7th of October. His deceitful fabrications and distortions have been evident for many years, as he aligned himself with the most notorious deceivers of the time who propagated the falsehood of Iraq possessing weapons of mass destruction. Watch here: https://salafidawah.co.uk/2024/04/21/contribution-of-the-callous-zionist-propagandist-and-rumour-monger-the-butcher-of-gaza-netanyahu-to-the-blatant-lies-that-led-to-the-2002-invasion-of-iraq/

We say to those who support Netanyahu that Allah says:

وَلَا تَرْكَنُوا إِلَى الَّذِينَ ظَلَمُوا فَتَمَسَّكُمُ النَّارُ وَمَا لَكُم مِّن دُونِ اللَّهِ مِنْ أَوْلِيَاءَ ثُمَّ لَا تُنصَرُونَ

And incline not toward those who do wrong, lest the Fire should touch you, and you have no protectors other than Allah, nor you would then be helped. (Hud: 113)

Nevertheless, irrespective of the precise moment and method by which Netanyahu’s reign of terror will be halted, we beseech Allah to envelop him in divine retribution from every conceivable angle. Yet, amidst our fervent prayers, we must not overlook the fundamental causes of our own vulnerabilities. Hence, it is imperative that we incessantly seek guidance from the erudite scholars of our Ummah during times of hardship and wholeheartedly endeavour to undertake all necessary measures that will restore our illustrious Ummah to its former glory.

[1] An Excerpt from Al-Wasaayaa Al-Manhajiyyah Pg 20. By Shaikh Rabee [hafidhahullaah]. slightly paraphrased

Pharaoh, The Muta’assibah, Netanyahu, The Azaariqah, Hamas, Graeme Wood, and Abu Qatadah

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

Allah [The Exalted] says:

إِنَّ فِرۡعَوۡنَ عَلَا فِى ٱلۡأَرۡضِ وَجَعَلَ أَهۡلَهَا شِيَعً۬ا يَسۡتَضۡعِفُ طَآٮِٕفَةً۬ مِّنۡہُمۡ يُذَبِّحُ أَبۡنَآءَهُمۡ وَيَسۡتَحۡىِۦ نِسَآءَهُمۡ‌ۚ إِنَّهُ ۥ كَانَ مِنَ ٱلۡمُفۡسِدِينَ

Verily, Pharaoh exalted himself in the land and made its people (into different) groups, weakening (oppressing) a group among them, killing their sons, and letting their females live. Verily, he was of the Mufsidoon. [Surah Al-Qasas. Ayah 4]

Pharaoh murdered the Children of Israel and refrained from murdering their women, but Netanyahu spares no one in his so-called pursuit of self-defense and proportionate retaliation. This displays a behavioural pattern suggestive of an egocentric and conceited individual who is prone to impulsive actions to validate their views and puts his aspirations above anything else – maiming and killing Palestinian children, bombing schools, hospitals, and refugee camps, and besieged nearly 2 million Palestinians while cutting them off from food, water, fuel, and electricity without guilt in the presence of millions of people throughout the world; steal Palestinian homes and land, and use religious rhetoric to justify war crimes. These are the actions sanctioned by someone who claims “moral superiority,” and to make matters worse, he utilises a distorted Scripture to justify his behaviour. Allah says: [وَمَنۡ أَظۡلَمُ مِمَّنِ ٱفۡتَرَىٰ عَلَى ٱللَّهِ كَذِبًا أَوۡ كَذَّبَ بِـَٔايَـٰتِهِۦۤ‌ۗ إِنَّهُ ۥ لَا يُفۡلِحُ ٱلظَّـٰلِمُونَ – And who does more wrong than he who invents a lie against Allah or rejects His Ayat (proofs, verses, lessons, revelations, etc.)? Verily, the Zaalimoon shall never be successful]. [Surah Al-An’aam. Ayah 21]

This mindset mirrors that of individuals resembling the Muta’assibah among the Jews and the Azaariqah (Khawarij) among the Muslims. The fanatical partisans among the Jews shared similarities with the Faareesiyyoon in their beliefs, yet they were notably aggressive and advocated for the assassination of those who opposed them. Referred to as Saffaakoon, they engaged in acts of pillage, plunder, and oppression towards anyone who did not align with their views. Conflict arose between them and the Faareesiyyoon due to the latter’s submission to the Romans. While some scholars classify them as part of political or nationalistic factions, their origins lie within a religious context, however, heinous were the crimes they committed across different regions. [1]

As for the Azaariqah among the Khawaarij, Al-Baghdaadee [429 AH- may Allah have mercy upon him] stated about their Bidah: “From it [i.e. their bidah] is the declaration that it is permissible to kill the women and children of their opponents, and they claimed that the children of their opponents would dwell in the fire forever”. [2]

Likewise, read here about Hamas by a senior student of knowledge Shaikh Abu Iyaad (may Allah preserve him]: “What is done by the likes of Ḥamas, ISIS, al-Qaeda, and other groups—who are funded, aided and abetted by Western powers for their own objectives (see, for example, https://abuiyaad.com/w/hamas-israeli-right) —of killing of women and children, then all of that is criminal and opposed to our religion and we condemn it without hesitation”.

Graeme Wood and Abu Qatadah seek to rationalise and legitimise the killing of children during war

Two Rabble-rousers – (Graeme Wood and Abu Qatadah) Rationalising and Legitimising The Killing of Children During War

Every person with a shred of decency – Muslim, Christian, Jew, and others – condemns this type of behaviour, whether undertaken in the guise of self-defence and retaliation.  Allah [The Exalted] says:

مَنْ قَتَلَ نَفْسًا بِغَيْرِ نَفْسٍ أَوْ فَسَادٍ فِي الْأَرْضِ فَكَأَنَّمَا قَتَلَ النَّاسَ جَمِيعًا وَمَنْ أَحْيَاهَا فَكَأَنَّمَا أَحْيَا النَّاسَ جَمِيعًا

If anyone killed a person not in retaliation of murder, or (and) to spread mischief in the land – it would be as if he killed all mankind, and if anyone saved a life, it would be as if he saved the life of all mankind. [Surah Al-Maa’idah. Ayah 32]

Imaam As-Sadi [may Allah have mercy upon him] said, “If a person is bold enough to kill someone who does not deserve to be killed, then this implies that he does make a distinction between the one He killed and other than him; rather he would commit this act whenever his evil calls him to that. Therefore, his bold attitude that led him to kill is as if he had killed all humankind. On the other hand, if a person saves a life and does not kill – whilst his soul calls him to do so – due to fear of Allah, then this is as if he has saved the lives of all humankind because the fear of Allah he possesses stops him killing one who does not deserve to be killed”. [3]

Abdullah Bin Mas’ood [may Allaah be pleased with him] said that Allah’s Messenger [peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him] said, “The first (thing) that will be decided among people on the Day of Judgment will pertain to bloodshed”. [4]

Imaam An-Nawawi [may Allah have mercy upon him] said, “This hadith shows the severity (i.e. in sin) of bloodshed and that it will be the first thing that will be judged between people on the Day of Resurrection because of its greatness and extreme danger. This hadith does not contradict the well-known hadith in the Sunan that “The first thing a person will be questioned about is the prayer”, because this hadeeth is about an affair between Allah and the person, whereas the first hadeeth (i.e. judgment in matters related to bloodshed) is an affair between the people”.

Two Rabble-rousers – (Graeme Wood and Abu Qatadah) Rationalising and Legitimising The Killing of Children During War

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

Allah [The Exalted] says:

إِذَا ٱلشَّمْسُ كُوِّرَتْ
When the sun will be coiled up (and lose its light).

وَإِذَا ٱلنُّجُومُ ٱنكَدَرَتْ
And when the stars will fall down (and scatter).

وَإِذَا ٱلْجِبَالُ سُيِّرَتْ
And when the mountains will be swept away (from their places, having being turned to dust).

وَإِذَا ٱلْعِشَارُ عُطِّلَتْ
And when the pregnant she-camels (that reach full-term) will be left idle, without care.

وَإِذَا ٱلْوُحُوشُ حُشِرَتْ

And when the wild beasts will be gathered together (for retribution to take place between them, before they are turned to dust).

وَإِذَا ٱلْبِحَارُ سُجِّرَتْ
And when the oceans will be kindled ablaze (after having merged together).

وَإِذَا ٱلنُّفُوسُ زُوِّجَتْ

And when the (various categories of) souls will be paired together (on the basis of their actions in this world) (or: when the souls are returned to their bodies).

وَإِذَا ٱلْمَوْءُۥدَةُ سُئِلَتْ
بِأَىِّ ذَنۢبٍ قُتِلَتْ
And when the female newborn (who was) buried alive will be asked. For what sin she was killed.

وَإِذَا ٱلصُّحُفُ نُشِرَتْ

And when the scrolls (of the good and bad deeds of every person as recorded by the angels) will be spread open.

وَإِذَا ٱلسَّمَآءُ كُشِطَتْ
And when the heaven will be torn out (from its place).

وَإِذَا ٱلْجَحِيمُ سُعِّرَتْ

And when the Hellfire will be kindled ablaze (its burning rage reflecting the sins of mankind and Allāh’s anger).

وَإِذَا ٱلْجَنَّةُ أُزْلِفَتْ
And when Paradise will be brought near (for the pious).

عَلِمَتْ نَفْسٌ مَّآ أَحْضَرَتْ

(When these events have taken place) then will every soul know what it has brought (of good and evil for this Day). [1]

—————————————

وَإِذَا ٱلْمَوْءُۥدَةُ سُئِلَتْ
بِأَىِّ ذَنۢبٍ قُتِلَتْ

“And when the female new born (who was) buried alive will be asked. For what sin she was killed”. This pertains to the custom followed by the ignorant people of the pre-Islamic period, wherein they would bury their (infant) daughters alive solely out of the apprehension of poverty. Consequently, the innocent female child would be questioned (on the day of Judgement): [بِأَىِّ ذَنۢبٍ۬ قُتِلَتۡ- For what sin she was killed]? This is because it is widely acknowledged that she is sinless, and this verse serves as a (strong) reproach and cautionary message to those responsible for her demise. [2]

Staff writer Graeme Wood from The Atlantic has attempted to justify and legitimise the act of killing children in times of war. This disturbing stance parallels the sinister tactics employed by the Khariji Abu Qatadah. Both individuals align themselves with extremist factions, with Graeme siding with the murderous Zionists and Abu Qatadah supporting the murderous Kharijites. Their alarming viewpoints are evident in the following excerpts. NB: The picture message regarding Abu Qatadah is a quote from one of Shaikh Abu Iyaadh’s articles.

     

Ibn Umar [may Allah be pleased with him and his father] narrated that a woman was found killed in one of the battles; so Allah’s Messenger [peace and blessings of Allah be upon him] forbade the killing of women and children. [Sahih Muslim 1744]

Truly, the view of these individuals to justify and legitimise such barbaric, atrocious, and dreadful act is utterly despicable. Despite their reasoning, they have made a declaration that goes against the innate human compassion for children and the instinct to safeguard them at all costs. Their rationalisations exude pure malice verging on sadism, and they cannot absolve themselves of accountability for their words. No amount of sugar-coated language or purported noble goals can excuse the abhorrent nature of their statements. The proclamations they make are utterly appalling to any parent with even a shred of compassion, leaving one in disbelief. It is truly distressing to listen to or read, causing a wave of nausea. How could anyone attempt to justify such a heinous act against the most innocent, children or infants? This wicked justification paves the way for all perpetrators in times of conflict to behave inhumanely, inflicting deadly harm and unbearable agony leading to the demise of helpless children. One can scarcely fathom the horror and multitude of wounds that a child would suffer when trapped alongside others before meeting their demise! Indeed, the noble Messenger [peace and blessings of Allah be upon him] said: “Allah will not be merciful to those who are not merciful to people”. [Ṣahiḥ Al-Bukhari 7376]

We ask Allah:
اللهم إني أسألك بأن لك الحمد لا إله إلا أنت المنان بديع السماوات والأرض يا ذا الجلال والإكرام! ياحيُّ ياقيوم

After the above supplication, we say, “May Allah guide Graeme, Abu Qatadah, and all those who utter such abhorrent and inhumane words towards the righteous path or afflict them with an ailment that renders their tongues and minds incapacitated. Amin”.

[2] An Excerpt from Tafsir As-Sadi

The Perils of Zionist Self-glorification and Insatiable Craving for Power

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

Imam Ibn Al-Qayyim [may Allah have mercy upon him]:

The contrast between seeking righteous leadership and simply seeking leadership lies in exalting Allah’s command and being sincere in devotion to Him, rather than seeking self-glorification and pursuing personal desires hastily. The individual who is truly sincere in devotion to Allah loves that his Lord is obeyed and not disobeyed, loves that the statement “none has the right to be worshipped except Allah” is uppermost, all matters of the religion sincerely established for the sake of Allah, the people obey Allah’s command and refrain from what Allah has forbidden. He is sincere in his devotion to Allah and sincere in guiding others towards the path of Allah. He aspires to be a leader in the religion and supplicates to his Lord to make him a leader of the righteous, just as he follows the righteous. Hence, if this servant of Allah who invites others to the path of Allah loves to be respected, honoured, and loved by the people, and wishes to be followed so that they trust him and emulate the Messenger through his actions, it does not harm his desire for leadership, instead, he is commended for it. This is because the one who calls to Allah yearns for obedience to Allah and the worship of Him alone. He seeks to be a means through which people are guided to obey Allah, worship Him alone, and follow the teachings of the Messenger. As a result of this, Allah mentions and praises His chosen servants with the best characteristics and that he will grant them the best reward on the day of judgment, saying:

وَٱلَّذِينَ يَقُولُونَ رَبَّنَا هَبۡ لَنَا مِنۡ أَزۡوَٲجِنَا وَذُرِّيَّـٰتِنَا قُرَّةَ أَعۡيُنٍ۬ وَٱجۡعَلۡنَا لِلۡمُتَّقِينَ إِمَامًا

And those who say: “Our Lord! Bestow on us from our wives and our offspring who will be the comfort of our eyes, and make us leaders for the pious”. [Surah Al-Furqan. Ayah 74]

They beseech Allah to bless them with the comfort of the eye by making their wives and children obedient to Allah and to fill their hearts with joy by being followed by the righteous in their devotion and servitude to Allah. This is because a trustworthy leader in the religion cooperates with others in obeying Allah and His Messenger, and that is to call them to sound leadership in the religion whose foundation is based on patience and certainty, as Allah [The Exalted] says:

وَجَعَلۡنَا مِنۡہُمۡ أَٮِٕمَّةً۬ يَہۡدُونَ بِأَمۡرِنَا لَمَّا صَبَرُواْ‌ۖ وَڪَانُواْ بِـَٔايَـٰتِنَا يُوقِنُونَ

And We made from among them (Children of Israel), leaders, giving guidance under Our Command when they were patient and used to believe with certainty in Our Ayat (proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.). [Surah Al-Sajdah. Ayah 24]

Hence, in their supplication to Allah that He makes them leaders for the righteous people, is that He guides and grants them success, and blesses them with beneficial knowledge and righteous deeds without which sound leadership in the religion cannot be attained.

This stands apart from simply pursuing leadership as its seekers strive to acquire it to accomplish their objectives, such as self-exaltation, enslaving the hearts and attaching them to themselves, and assisting them in achieving their goals, while they remain superior and everyone else subordinate to them. The pursuit of leadership of this kind results in corruption, the magnitude of which only Allah can comprehend, involving rebellion, envy, transgression, enmity, oppression, trials and tribulations, prioritising self-defence at the cost of violating Allah’s rights, elevating those despised by Allah and demeaning those honoured by Allah. [1]

This is a current calamity unfolding before us, orchestrated by Netanyahu and Hamas as one of their strategic tools. Hence, before delving into any other matter, we urge you to read this enlightening article penned by Shaikh Abu Iyaadh [may Allah preserve him]: https://abuiyaad.com/w/hamas-israeli-right

To begin with, his intense desire to advance his interests is creating problems within the very population under his governance. Despite the loud demands from his people to immediately negotiate with reckless Hamas to secure the release of the hostages in Gaza, he persists in refusing to end the war. Instead, he cunningly employs the strategy of false promises, manipulating time to deceive the world. He sporadically allows aid to enter, only to cruelly withhold it at other times, all the while presenting his meagre efforts as a benevolent gesture. This calculated facade enables him to perpetrate his genocidal agenda more discreetly. The profound words of Imam Ibn Al-Qayyim regarding the pursuit of power without a sincere devotion to Allah are manifesting right before our very eyes. Netanyahu’s relentless pursuit poses a grave peril to the prosperity of both the Palestinians and his people, as it shamelessly places personal gain above the collective welfare. His quest for leadership is deeply entrenched in self-centeredness, devoid of the divine guidance that Allah has bestowed upon us to foster thriving societies through compassion and fair play, instead, it escalates conflicts.

Despite the fact that the Zionists and their predecessors have been the instigators of over seven decades of oppression against the Palestinians, it is important to acknowledge that Hamas’s approach does not align with the authentic Islamic methodology in the pursuit of victory for the Palestinian people, rather, they are a strategic tool in the hands of the Israeli right. https://abuiyaad.com/w/hamas-israeli-right

By transgressing against some non-combatants, reckless  Hamas  inadvertently provided him with an opportunity to advance his racist agenda against the Palestinians. This has resulted in their deprivation, indiscriminate killings, and the wanton destruction of vital infrastructure, all under the guise of self-defence. No one bestowed upon Netanyahu this recent malevolent mission of genocide except the audacious Hamas, who incited a despicable antagonist and venomous aspirant to power to hasten the shedding of Muslim blood. This serves as a poignant reminder of what Allah conveys to us about the esteemed prophet Musa [peace be upon him] when he reprimanded the one who sought his help twice. Allah says:

وَدَخَلَ ٱلۡمَدِينَةَ عَلَىٰ حِينِ غَفۡلَةٍ۬ مِّنۡ أَهۡلِهَا فَوَجَدَ فِيہَا رَجُلَيۡنِ يَقۡتَتِلَانِ هَـٰذَا مِن شِيعَتِهِۦ وَهَـٰذَا مِنۡ عَدُوِّهِۦ‌ۖ فَٱسۡتَغَـٰثَهُ ٱلَّذِى مِن شِيعَتِهِۦ عَلَى ٱلَّذِى مِنۡ عَدُوِّهِۦ فَوَكَزَهُ ۥ مُوسَىٰ فَقَضَىٰ عَلَيۡهِ‌ۖ قَالَ هَـٰذَا مِنۡ عَمَلِ ٱلشَّيۡطَـٰنِ‌ۖ إِنَّهُ ۥ عَدُوٌّ۬ مُّضِلٌّ۬ مُّبِينٌ۬
قَالَ رَبِّ إِنِّى ظَلَمۡتُ نَفۡسِى فَٱغۡفِرۡ لِى فَغَفَرَ لَهُ ۥۤ‌ۚ إِنَّهُ ۥ هُوَ ٱلۡغَفُورُ ٱلرَّحِيمُ
قَالَ رَبِّ بِمَآ أَنۡعَمۡتَ عَلَىَّ فَلَنۡ أَكُونَ ظَهِيرً۬ا لِّلۡمُجۡرِمِينَ
فَأَصۡبَحَ فِى ٱلۡمَدِينَةِ خَآٮِٕفً۬ا يَتَرَقَّبُ فَإِذَا ٱلَّذِى ٱسۡتَنصَرَهُ ۥ بِٱلۡأَمۡسِ يَسۡتَصۡرِخُهُ ۥ‌ۚ قَالَ لَهُ ۥ مُوسَىٰٓ إِنَّكَ لَغَوِىٌّ۬ مُّبِينٌ۬

And he (Musa) entered the city at a time of unawareness of its people, and he found there two men fighting, – one of his party (his religion – from the Children of Israel), and the other of his foes. The man of his (own) party asked him for help against his foe, so Musa (Moses) struck him with his fist and killed him. He said: “This is of Shaitan‘s (Satan) doing, verily, he is a plain misleading enemy.” He said: “My Lord! Verily, I have wronged myself, so forgive me.” Then He forgave him. Verily, He is the Oft-Forgiving, the Most Merciful. He said: “My Lord! For that with which You have favoured me, I will never more be a helper for the Mujrimun (criminals, disobedient to Allah, polytheists, sinners, etc.)!” So he became afraid, looking about in the city (waiting as to what would be the result of his crime of killing), when behold, the man who had sought his help the day before, called for his help (again). Musa (Moses) said to him: “Verily, you are a plain misleader!” [Surah Al-Qasas. Ayaat 15-18]

Imam Ibn Al-Jawzi [may Allah have mercy upon him] said that one of the meanings of this statement [إِنَّكَ لَغَوِىٌّ۬ مُّبِينٌ – verily, you are a plain misleader] means, “You are misled in fighting a person whom you are unable to repel his evil from yourself”. [2]

Hamas, in their reckless strategy, has offered solace to a beleaguered individual, allowing him respite from his domestic tribulations. This individual presides over a fractured society, deeply entrenched in his Zionist convictions. Within this society, one finds the self-proclaimed right-wing ultra-Orthodox religious Zionists, while others vehemently reject the notion of a Jewish state. Alas, the deranged constituents of his administration have shamelessly advocated for the annihilation of Palestinians, with some even demanding the expulsion of the Palestinian people from their ancestral land. Read below:

Some Views of Zionism’s Crackpots: [Yair Netanyahu, Ehud Olmert, Eli Yishai, Bezalel Smotrich, Tally Gotliv, Ben Gvir Itamar, Lehi, and Arieh King]

Despite these circumstances, Hamas serves as a strategic instrument through which Netanyahu and his far-right allies divert attention away from the extensive oppression endured by Palestinians for over 70 years.

In an attempt to divert the focus from the prolonged suffering of Palestinians, the Zionist media outlets have been fervently attempting to confine the discussion to October 7. It is frequently asserted by them that their nation-state is currently misunderstood, facing animosity from those they once considered allies, and even having arrest warrants issued against their leaders. They argue that the conflict was not instigated by them, but rather by Hamas. While it is true that Hamas acted recklessly and oppressed some non-combatants on October 7th, it was not their parents who initiated the conflict over 70 years ago. In addition, despite their significant political clout and the endorsement they receive from numerous influential individuals in America and Europe, they contend that there is a lack of substantial criticism directed toward their foes. They further claim that there is a strong sense of empathy towards Palestinians, as opposed to the scant empathy shown towards the populace under Netanyahu’s leadership, including those who are being held hostage.

To downplay the ongoing hindrance of trucks transporting humanitarian aid to Gaza, the Zionist reporters argue that Hamas should also be held accountable for looting aid trucks. However, even if there is concrete evidence that certain Palestinians have participated in such acts, it does not validate the deliberate starvation of others. They argue that the displacement of Palestinians from their homes is widely condemned, yet little attention is paid to the displaced or destroyed communities in northern Israel. Similarly, the lack of sufficient condemnation for the rape of Jewish women is concerning. While no form of rape can be justified, it is crucial to thoroughly investigate each case due to the history of exaggeration and falsehoods by Zionists regarding atrocities against them. Read here: https://abuiyaad.com/n/ben-shapiro-pathetic-jew-haters

Whenever their acts of genocide are identified and calls are made for them to stop, they dismiss these calls as “irrelevant demands from anti-Semitic groups and organisations.” They then argue that the differential treatment of Jews is not a recent occurrence, but rather a story that dates back over 2,000 years, rooted in ancient animosity. Furthermore, they assert that anyone who accuses them of genocide is only exacerbating the global spread of anti-Semitism, as people tend to take such accusations seriously. However, in their state of self-delusion, they deny the validity of the charges against Netanyahu. Any country that proactively presents proof of their wrongdoings towards the Palestinians is branded as a centre for radical activities within their region, a promoter of anti-Semitic beliefs, and a sponsor of terrorism endorsed by the state, a negative influence on the international platform, and an ally of states and organisations that endorse terrorism.

Despite their role as the most oppressive colonialists towards the Palestinians, they assert that anyone who condemns their actions does so out of ignorance and lacks any practical means of enforcement. They argue that such condemnations only serve to empower terrorist organisations and undermine the foundations of international law and justice. This stance is not only a misstep but a direct insult to justice and morality, as well as a violation of their right to protect the citizens under Netanyahu’s governance. Their sole objective, they claim, is to eliminate Hamas! https://abuiyaad.com/w/hamas-israeli-right

Despite being the very individuals responsible for the expulsion of Palestinians from their homes and subjecting them to relentless brutality for more than seven decades, Netanyahu and his Zionist comrades audaciously raise their voices, decrying unfair treatment and accusing others of treating Jews as inferior. Undoubtedly, the mistreatment of individuals based on their race or ethnicity is unequivocally immoral whenever proven. Read here: https://abuiyaad.com/a/muhammad-semitic-prophet  Nevertheless, those residing within fragile glass houses should refrain from casting stones!

Accusing Netanyahu and his associates of wrongdoing is met with accusations of spreading lies, blood libels, and baseless claims against them. Despite the global awareness of the atrocities being committed, the Zionist media denies any indiscriminate bombing of Gaza and mistreatment of Palestinians. Those who label Netanyahu as a genocidal leader are accused of perpetuating classic anti-Semitic stereotypes, delegitimising, and demonising. The Zionists and their propaganda media exhibit troubling behaviour, aiming to overshadow or eliminate the substantial evidence of the suffering of the Palestinians, including the deaths of over 35,000 individuals, including nearly 12,000 women and children, the destruction of homes and hospitals, and the obstruction and manipulation of aid. Those who criticize them are labelled as promoting “moral equivalence”, while Netanyahu and his allies believe they are immune from any form of accountability. Their supporters argue that accusing Netanyahu of genocide is counterproductive as if preventing murder and safeguarding innocent civilians is somehow unhelpful.

Netanyahu’s sole focus lies in his unquenchable thirst for power and self-glorification, disregarding any aspirations for peace, dignity, fairness, and justice. His self-centered nature and disregard for others make him a wicked despot, and the consequences of his recklessness are witnessed by everyone. Nevertheless, the irresponsible actions of Hamas are being exploited once again as a strategic instrument by the Zionists to divert attention from the reality that the conflict dates back over 70 years, with the Zionists being the ones who instigated the conflict, seized Palestinian territory, and have been oppressing them ever since.

We ask Allah:
رَبَّنَا لَا تَجۡعَلۡنَا فِتۡنَةً۬ لِّلۡقَوۡمِ ٱلظَّـٰلِمِينَ
وَنَجِّنَا بِرَحۡمَتِكَ مِنَ ٱلۡقَوۡمِ ٱلۡكَـٰفِرِينَ

Our Lord! Make us not a trial for the folk who are Zalimun (polytheists and wrongdoers). And save us by Your Mercy from the disbelieving folk.

Finally, let it be known that this response, in no way, condones the crimes committed by Hamas or others against innocent individuals. Please read the following article below:

[1] An Excerpt from ‘Ar-Rooh’ pages 487-489
[2] Zaadul Maseer Fee Ilmil Tafseer

A brief analysis of Zionist Netanyahu’s impassioned rhetoric concerning his war crimes

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

Allah [The Exalted] says:

وَقُلْ جَآءَ ٱلْحَقُّ وَزَهَقَ ٱلْبَٰطِلُ إِنَّ ٱلْبَٰطِلَ كَانَ زَهُوقًا

And say: “Truth has come and Batil (falsehood, i.e. Satan or polytheism, etc.) has vanished. Surely! Batil is ever bound to vanish.” [Surah Al-Israa. Ayah 81]

Zionist Netanyahu stated: “The outrageous decision by the ICC prosecutor, Karim Khan, to seek arrest warrants against the democratically elected leaders of Israel is a moral outrage of historic proportions. It will cast an everlasting mark of shame on the international court”.

Response: Netanyahu’s despicable choice to persist in his brutal assault on innocent Palestinians, particularly targeting the weakest among them, women and children, is a moral atrocity of unparalleled magnitude. This egregious act will forever stain his reputation and that of his accomplices.

Zionist Netanyahu stated: “Israel is waging a just war against Hamas, a genocidal terrorist organization that perpetrated the worst attack on the Jewish people since the Holocaust. Hamas massacred 1200 Jews, raped Jewish women, burned Jewish babies, took hundreds hostage”. Read here: https://abuiyaad.com/w/hamas-israeli-right

Response: You are not engaged in a mere conflict with Hamas; instead, you are orchestrating a reprehensible and savage campaign against those whom you have singled out based on a distorted and invalidated interpretation of scripture, advocating for their complete annihilation. It is beyond comprehension that you, in your deranged state, would attempt to rationalise the murder of over 34,000 individuals, including innocent women and children, as well as the destruction of vital infrastructure, as a form of retribution for the loss of 1,200 Jewish lives. If Hamas are guilty of the heinous acts you accuse them of, such as the rape of Jewish women, the burning of Jewish babies, and the taking of hundreds of hostages, it would never serve as a justification for the mass murder of 34,000 innocent souls. Furthermore, your claims must be substantiated with irrefutable evidence, as your reputation for disseminating falsehoods through your propaganda machinery is well-known. While it is undeniable that Hamas has committed transgressions, there is a distinct lack of concrete proof to support the extent of your allegations. We condemn Hamas for their transgression against non-combatants, however, you have carried on murdering women and children. Read: https://abuiyaad.com/a/pharoah-slaughtering-babies

Zionist Netanyahu stated: “Now, in the face of these horrors, Mr. Khan creates a twisted and false moral equivalence between the leaders of Israel and the henchmen of Hamas. This is like creating a moral equivalence after September 11th between President Bush and Osama Bin Laden, or during World War II between FDR and Hitler”.

Response: In light of these atrocities, the zealous Zionist Netanyahu fabricates a distorted and deceitful comparison between the transgressors of Hamas and his genocidal Zionist army. The debate over September 11th will be left to you and those who challenge the story, but what is undeniably true is that you are among the primary deceivers when it comes to the assertion that Iraq possessed weapons of mass destruction.

Zionist Netanyahu stated: “What a travesty of justice! What a disgrace! The prosecutor’s absurd charges against me and Israel’s defense minister are merely an attempt to deny Israel the basic right of self-defense. And I assure you of one thing: This attempt will utterly fail”.

Response: Such a mockery of justice! What a shameful display! Netanyahu’s preposterous assertions of self-preservation are nothing but a ploy to perpetrate mass murder driven by his delusions of grandeur, convinced of his superiority over the Palestinians. Rest assured, this act of genocide will forever linger in his conscience.

Zionist Netanyahu stated: “Eighty years ago, the Jewish people were totally defenseless against our enemies. Those days are over. Now the Jewish people have a state and we have an army to defend our state”.

Response: Eighty years ago, you found yourselves defenseless in the clutches of the Nazis, however, it is undeniable that the Palestinians find themselves in a similar state of vulnerability in your grasp. Instead of offering them protection, you have subjected them to brutality, mercilessly taking their lives, seizing their lands, and distorting the truth to suit your own agenda of violence. However, rest assured that this reign of terror will eventually meet its demise, just as the days of Fir’awn and Haman came to an end. Although you possess an army capable of committing genocide, may Allah grant you the justice you truly deserve and make you a cautionary tale for all to witness.

Zionist Netanyahu stated: “Notwithstanding the blood libels Mr. Khan has leveled, Israel will continue to wage this war in full compliance with international law. We will continue to take unprecedented measures to get innocent civilians out of harm’s way and to ensure that humanitarian assistance reaches those in need in Gaza”.

Response: Anyone who dares to denounce your atrocious acts of genocide is either tainted with anti-Semitism or spreading malicious blood libels! You persist in waging war just as Fir’awn and Haman did, driven by deceit and disbelief. Your adherence to a law is solely based on its alignment with your selfish desires and racist ideology. You continue to mercilessly slaughter innocent civilians, demolish their homes, and subject them to starvation, while the entire world bears witness to your heinous actions, yet you audaciously claim to be taking unprecedented measures to protect them from harm and provide humanitarian aid to those in need in Gaza!

Zionist Netanyahu stated: “Mr. Khan also sets a dangerous precedent that undermines every democracy’s right to defend itself against terror organizations and aggressors. The ICC has no jurisdiction over Israel and Mr. Khan’s actions will not stop us from waging our just war against Hamas. But Mr. Khan’s abuse of this authority will turn the ICC into nothing more than a farce”.

Response: Mr. Netanyahu is establishing a perilous standard that empowers any ruthless dictator to embark on a killing rampage under the guise of self-preservation. Netanyahu’s authority does not extend to Palestine in the Eyes of the Almighty, and his heinous acts will cease one day, just as Allah put an end to the unbelieving oppressors of the past. Cease discussing the idea of launching a war against Hamas and utilizing them as a diversion to carry out mass murder. Your misuse of authority will ultimately transform you into a mere criminal in the chronicles of history.

Zionist Netanyahu stated: “He’s doing something else. He is callously pouring gasoline on the fires of antisemitism that are raging across the world. Through this incendiary decision, Mr. Khan takes his place among the great antisemites in modern times. He now stands alongside those infamous German judges who donned their robes and upheld laws that denied the Jewish people their most basic rights and enabled the Nazis to perpetrate the worst crime in history”.

Response: You are the instigator of a different path, shamelessly fueling the flames of racism that burn within the souls of your followers and your cohorts within the extremist far-right. With your despicable actions, you align yourself with the infamous racists of our era, as you join forces with your far-right allies to strip the Palestinians of their fundamental rights and empower your murderous army to commit one of the most heinous atrocities in recent memory. Read here: https://abuiyaad.com/a/amalekite-genocide-doctrine-gaza

Zionist Netanyahu stated: “Two weeks ago, on Holocaust Memorial Day, I pledged this: No amount of pressure and no decision in any international forum will prevent Israel from defending itself against those who seek our destruction”.

Response: Every individual possesses the privilege to vow to protect the dignity and integrity of others through principles of equity and righteousness. No external force should compel one to forsake this duty. Nevertheless, you have not ceased your abhorrent racist crusade under the guise of self-preservation. Those who engage in senseless violence against the innocent only reflect upon themselves. We stand apart from your despicable actions.

Zionist Netanyahu stated: “To all the enemies of Israel, including their collaborators in The Hague, I renew that pledge today. Israel will wage our war against Hamas until that war is won. Because never again is now”.

Response: No, Mr deceitful, it is with great regret that we must inform you that you, in particular, have managed to amass a multitude of adversaries due to your deceitful nature. It appears that you are determined to deceive all Jews in your self-centered and diabolical campaign, masquerading it as self-defense while mercilessly targeting innocent lives. However, we implore you to remember that no despot can reign indefinitely, not even those who held dominion over both the eastern and western regions, such as Namrood and Bukhtanasar. Your intentions extend far beyond a mere conflict with Hamas; instead, you harbor a sinister desire to perpetrate mass murder and lay the groundwork for a malevolent future that will enable you to continue subjugating the Palestinian people, much like Fir’awn callously slaughtered infants in his quest to maintain his tyrannical rule.
Finally, let it be known that this response, in no way, condones the crimes committed by Hamas against innocent individuals. Please read the following article below:

“I am not guilty of war crimes and you can’t arrest me” – Netanyahu Confined within a profound and disturbing state of self-delusion!

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

Allah says:

وَإِذَا قِيلَ لَهُمْ لَا تُفْسِدُوا۟ فِى ٱلْأَرْضِ قَالُوٓا۟ إِنَّمَا نَحْنُ مُصْلِحُونَ
أَلَآ إِنَّهُمْ هُمُ ٱلْمُفْسِدُونَ وَلَٰكِن لَّا يَشْعُرُونَ

And when it is said to them, “Do not cause corruption on the earth (through your disbelief, sin, treachery, and sedition against those who believe),” they say, “Indeed, we are but reformers (who rectify and make peace).” Indeed, they are the ones who are the mischief-makers (in reality), but they perceive this not (due to their ignorance, disbelief, and arrogance). [1]

Imam Ibn Al-Qayyim [may Allah have mercy upon him] said: First, they are declared as liars in their claim, secondly, a notification that they are corrupt, thirdly, attributed to the root of corruption with the confirmation of their true nature as corrupt individuals, and finally, declared as profoundly ignorant, signifying their complete lack of self-awareness regarding their corrupt behaviour. [2]

Netanyahu is yearning to break free from his current circumstances. By convincing himself that he is not a perpetrator of heinous crimes, his inner thoughts create a facade to portray him as a compassionate individual or a champion of justice. This is because he cannot come to grips with the reality that he is a coward and a child murderer, unable to confront the harsh truths due to his lack of courage to renounce his wicked ways. He is shielded by his subconscious mind from the harsh, diabolical, and disgraceful deeds he has committed, acknowledging the unpleasant reality but rationalising it as acceptable behavior, then desperately shifting blame onto others. This severe state of self-deception is what drives him to continue his atrocities against women and children.

Since the onset of the genocide, a staggering number of 34,200 have been murdered, among them 14,500 children and 10,000 women. The devastating aftermath persists, with over 10,000 individuals remaining buried beneath the ruins. Furthermore, the discovery of mass graves at hospitals in both the northern and southern regions of Gaza has added to the already harrowing situation. The unparalleled cruelty exhibited by Netanyahu and his accomplices, the Zionists, is truly unfathomable. The destruction is extensive, with two-thirds of residential properties, as well as vital infrastructure such as roads, hospitals, schools, universities, factories, shops, graveyards, libraries, and masjids, reduced to ruins. In her report for the UN Human Rights Council, UN special rapporteur on the occupied Palestinian territories Francesca Albanese wrote: “[There are] reasonable grounds to believe that the threshold indicating the commission of the following acts of genocide against Palestinians in Gaza has been met: killing members of the group; causing serious bodily or mental harm to groups’ members; and deliberately inflicting on the group conditions of life calculated to bring about its physical destruction in whole or in part”. [End of quote]

Finally, the rebuttal of Mr Netanyahu’s profound and disturbing self-delusion does not prevent us from condemning the killing of every non-combatant whether they are Muslim or non-Muslim. Read here: https://abuiyaad.com/a/amalekite-genocide-doctrine-gaza

[2] Badaa’i at-Tafseer 1/97

Zionist Utilisation of Psychological Projection Against a Muslim Ruler

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

Allah [The Exalted] says:

وَيْلٌ لِّلْمُطَفِّفِينَ
الَّذِينَ إِذَا اكْتَالُوا عَلَى النَّاسِ يَسْتَوْفُونَ
وَإِذَا كَالُوهُمْ أَو وَّزَنُوهُمْ يُخْسِرُونَ

Woe to Al-Mutaffifin [those who give less in measure and weight (decrease the rights of others)], those who, when they have to receive by measure from men, demand full measure, and when they have to give by measure or weight to men, give less than due. [al-Mutaffifeen Ayaat 1-3]

Imam As-Sadi said: This noble verse demonstrates that it is not only the right of a person to receive what they are entitled to from others, but they also have to give others what they are entitled to. This includes matters related to wealth and mutual dealings; rather, proofs and statements are included in the generality of this verse, as it is common for individuals engaged in argumentation and discussion to strive to establish their proofs. Therefore, it is incumbent upon a person to acknowledge and examine the evidence presented by others, just as they would scrutinize their proof. In this regard, a person’s justice is evident as opposed to bigotry, humility in contrast to arrogance, and their display of common sense rather than foolish behaviour. [And Excerpt from Tafsir As-Sadi]

Hence, if an individual alleges to be a victim of injustice and publicly declares it, whether directly or indirectly, it is imperative to conduct a thorough investigation into the matter. This is crucial since certain individuals in contemporary times, particularly the Zionists led by Netanyahu, often resort to portraying themselves as victims and appealing to emotions, despite their well-documented mistreatment of Palestinians and refusal to heed the calls of Muslim nations to halt their atrocities. Most recently, the Zionist Foreign Minister, Mr. Katz, accused President Recep Tayyip of behaving like a “dictator”. This situation brings to mind the proverbial saying:

ضربني وبكى
سبقني واشتكى

“He hit me and cried….and complained before me”.

Therefore, what led Mr. Katz to accuse President Recep Tayyip of dictatorship? The underlying cause for this accusation stems from Turkey’s recent decision to halt all trade with the Zionists. Consequently, Mr. Zionist Katz expressed his viewpoint on the matter, saying:

Firstly, read here about boycotting:

https://abuiyaad.com/a/albani-boycotting-goods-oppressors
https://abuiyaad.com/a/luhaydan-boycott-mockery-prophet
https://abuiyaad.com/a/trade-relations-peace-war

Secondly, the Zionists persist in spreading falsehoods to suppress dissent, sometimes resorting to blatantly false claims, while other times opting for more subtle tactics like trying to conflate anti-Zionism with antisemitism. Those who expose their wrongdoing are labelled as Nazis or brainwashed anti-semites, all while claiming to act in the name of Jewish security. This narrative is reinforced by the fear-mongering of certain political and community figures, even though Netanyahu and his associates offer no protection to Palestinians whatsoever.

Since the onset of the genocide, a staggering number of 34,200 have been murdered, among them 14,500 children and 10,000 women. The devastating aftermath persists, with over 10,000 individuals remaining buried beneath the ruins. Furthermore, the discovery of mass graves at hospitals in both the northern and southern regions of Gaza has added to the already harrowing situation. The unparalleled cruelty exhibited by Netanyahu and his accomplices, the Zionists, is truly unfathomable. The destruction is extensive, with two-thirds of residential properties, as well as vital infrastructure such as roads, hospitals, schools, universities, factories, shops, graveyards, libraries, and masjids, reduced to ruins. In her report for the UN Human Rights Council, UN special rapporteur on the occupied Palestinian territories Francesca Albanese wrote: “[There are] reasonable grounds to believe that the threshold indicating the commission of the following acts of genocide against Palestinians in Gaza has been met: killing members of the group; causing serious bodily or mental harm to groups’ members; and deliberately inflicting on the group conditions of life calculated to bring about its physical destruction in whole or in part”. [End of quote]

Hence, the question arises: who truly merits the title of dictator? It is widely acknowledged that Mr. Katz and his counterpart Netanyahu are the ruthless dictators. However, we condemn the killing of every non-combatant whether they are Muslim or non-Muslim. Read below:

Question: “Why this blatant contradiction?!” Answer: “No comment”.

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

Allah [The Most High] says:

يَـٰٓأَيُّہَا ٱلَّذِينَ ءَامَنُواْ كُونُواْ قَوَّٲمِينَ بِٱلۡقِسۡطِ شُہَدَآءَ لِلَّهِ وَلَوۡ عَلَىٰٓ أَنفُسِكُمۡ أَوِ ٱلۡوَٲلِدَيۡنِ وَٱلۡأَقۡرَبِينَ‌ۚ إِن يَكُنۡ غَنِيًّا أَوۡ فَقِيرً۬ا فَٱللَّهُ أَوۡلَىٰ بِہِمَا‌ۖ فَلَا تَتَّبِعُواْ ٱلۡهَوَىٰٓ أَن تَعۡدِلُواْ‌ۚ وَإِن تَلۡوُ ۥۤاْ أَوۡ تُعۡرِضُواْ فَإِنَّ ٱللَّهَ كَانَ بِمَا تَعۡمَلُونَ خَبِيرً۬ا

O you who believe! Stand out firmly for justice, as witnesses to Allah; even though it be against yourselves, or your parents, or your kin, be he rich or poor, Allah is a Better Protector to both (than you). So follow not the lusts (of your hearts), lest you may avoid justice, and if you distort your witness or refuse to give it, verily, Allah is Ever Well-Acquainted with what you do. [Surah An-Nisaa. Ayah 135]

 

Recent statement:

Mr. Starmer stated: Let me be clear about what I was saying and what I wasn’t saying; I was saying Israel has the right to self-defense, and when I said that right, it was the right to self-defense; I was not saying that Israel had the right to cut off water, fuel, food supplies or medicine.

 

Previous Statement:

The Interviewer said to Mr Starmer: I think you would understand, I have to start with events that we are seeing, the Israel and Hamas conflict. Overnight Leo Varadkar, the Irish Prime minister had said that Israel has to be careful because if they are not proportionate, they will risk losing global support. So, what is the proportionate response in your view?

Mr Starmer responded: I think I have to say that the responsibility lies with Hamas. This is cold-blooded murder of men, women, even children. It is terrorism and Israel has the right to defend herself, and there is an ongoing situation with hostages, and Israel has the right to do everything that it can to get those hostages back, safe and sound. Therefore, I am very clear, Israel does have that right to defend herself and Hamas bears responsibility.

The Interviewer said: A siege is appropriate? Cutting off power, cutting off water?

Mr Starmer responded: I think Israel does have that right, it is an ongoing situation. Obviously, everything must be done within international law, but I don’t want to step away from the core principles that Israel has the right to defend herself and Hamas has responsibility for these terrorist acts….. [End of quote]

So, you can judge for yourselves whether the recent and previous statements are a contradiction or whether they can be reconciled.

 

Finally, examine the consistency of this Muslim ruler – Saudi Prince Turki Al-Faisal who stated – on October 18, 2023 – about the present Israel Government and the Hamas:

All militarily occupied people have a right to resist their occupation, even militarily. I do not support the military option in Palestine. I prefer the other option: civil insurrection and disobedience. It brought down the British Empire in India and the Soviet Empire in Eastern Europe. Israel has overwhelming military superiority and we see in front of our eyes, the devastation and oblivion it is bringing to the people of Gaza.

I categorically condemn Hamas’ targeting of civilian targets of any age or gender, as it is accused of. Such targeting belies Hamas’s claims to an Islamic identity. There is an Islamic injunction against the killing of innocent children, women, and elders. The injunction is also against the desecration of places of worship.

I also condemn Hamas’ gifting the higher moral ground to an Israeli government that is universally shunned, even by half of the Israeli public as fascist, miscreant, and abhorrent. I condemn Hamas for giving this awful government the excuse to ethnically cleanse Gaza of its citizens and bombing them to oblivion.

I condemn Hamas further undermining the Palestinian Authority as Israel has been doing. I condemn Hamas for sabotaging the attempt of Saudi Arabia to reach a peaceful resolution to the plight of the Palestinian people.

But equally, I condemn Israel’s indiscriminate bombing of Palestinian civilians in Gaza and the attempt to forcibly drive them into Sinai. I condemn Israeli targeted killing and the indiscriminate Arrest of Palestinian children, women, and men in the West Bank. Two wrongs don’t make a right.

I’ve been hearing a repeated phrase in American media: unprovoked attack. What more provocation is required to make it provoked than what Israel has done to the Palestinian people for three-quarters of a century? I refer you to the article in the Middle East Monitor of February 17 2014 under the title: Israeli army veterans admit role in massacre of Palestinians in 1948. Read it and weep as I did. Just this year, from May to July, over 450 Palestinians were killed, including 67 children. This bloodletting must stop. I condemn Israel’s stealing of Palestinian lands. I condemn Israeli colonists for rampaging through houses of worship in the Al-Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem. I condemn Israel for destroying Palestinian homes and olive orchids. I condemn Israel for incarcerating Palestinian women, children, and men in concentration camps without reason to due process. I condemn Israel’s targeted killings and assassinations of Palestinians.

I condemn Western politicians for shedding tears when Israelis are killed by Palestinians but refuse to even express sorrow when Israelis kill Palestinians. There are no heroes in this complicit. Only victims.

Netanyahu desperately attempts to conceal and manipulate the undeniable truths that are apparent to all those possessing even a modicum of common sense

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

Allah [The Exalted] says:

لَا تَحْسَبَنَّ ٱلَّذِينَ يَفْرَحُونَ بِمَآ أَتَوا۟ وَّيُحِبُّونَ أَن يُحْمَدُوا۟ بِمَا لَمْ يَفْعَلُوا۟ فَلَا تَحْسَبَنَّهُم بِمَفَازَةٍ مِّنَ ٱلْعَذَابِ وَلَهُمْ عَذَابٌ أَلِيمٌ

Think not that those who rejoice in what they have done (or brought about), and love to be praised for what they have not done,- think not you that they are rescued from the torment, and for them is a painful torment. [Surah Al Imran. Ayah 188]

Imam As-Sadi [may Allah have mercy upon him] said, “They want to be praised for what they have not accomplished and words of truth they have not uttered. Thus, they combine evil behaviour and its statements, and rejoice in that; and love to be praised for some good they have not done”. [1]

It is truly remarkable to witness the astonishing endeavours of Netanyahu and his allies as they strive to portray themselves as compassionate individuals. Whether one perceives it as an exhibition of sheer arrogance or misguided intentions, it is clear that Netanyahu and his allies have been misled by Shaytan into believing that seizing land, confining Palestinians, enforcing occupation, engaging in a campaign of terror, and perpetrating genocide in Gaza will ensure their personal security in the future. Simultaneously, they endeavour to persuade the world that their actions are commendable due to Hamas initiating the initial attack, and they should be commended for exhibiting restraint; otherwise, the Palestinians would have suffered even greater harm!!

Indeed, it is disheartening to know that half a million individuals in Gaza are currently enduring starvation, and bombings, witnessing the burning of children and women by missiles, and facing numerous other atrocities. To date, the death toll of Palestinians has reached a staggering 35,000, excluding those unaccounted for under the rubble. Some eyewitnesses among the experts from Muslim nations have documented that the activities of the Zionist army in Gaza have resulted in the accumulation of 37 million tonnes of debris, a significant portion of which is contaminated with unexploded ordnance. The process of clearing this debris is estimated to require more than a decade to complete. Approximately 65% of the structures demolished in Gaza are residential, making the process of clearing and reconstructing them a slow and perilous task due to the potential threat posed by unexploded shells, missiles, or other weapons hidden within the rubble. On average, around 10% of munitions did not explode upon impact and would have to be safely extracted by demining teams. The town located near the border accommodates over half of Gaza’s inhabitants, many of whom were displaced due to Zionist atrocities in other areas. Furthermore, the Zionists have caused the destruction of numerous medical facilities and the brutal murder of numerous healthcare workers.

Despite these egregious acts, Netanyahu and his allies persist in attempting to convince the entire world that their actions are warranted as a form of retribution or as a means to safeguard Jews worldwide. They are supported in their endeavors by religious Zionists who purport to speak on behalf of God, asserting that their actions are righteous. However, it is important to note that these claims are founded upon distorted and abrogated previous Scriptures. Their actions involve trying to trick the entire world, all the while refusing to acknowledge the truth and rejecting advice. Allah [The Exalted] says:

وَمِنَ ٱلنَّاسِ مَن يُعۡجِبُكَ قَوۡلُهُ ۥ فِى ٱلۡحَيَوٰةِ ٱلدُّنۡيَا وَيُشۡهِدُ ٱللَّهَ عَلَىٰ مَا فِى قَلۡبِهِۦ وَهُوَ أَلَدُّ ٱلۡخِصَامِ
وَإِذَا تَوَلَّىٰ سَعَىٰ فِى ٱلۡأَرۡضِ لِيُفۡسِدَ فِيهَا وَيُهۡلِكَ ٱلۡحَرۡثَ وَٱلنَّسۡلَ‌ۗ وَٱللَّهُ لَا يُحِبُّ ٱلۡفَسَادَ
وَإِذَا قِيلَ لَهُ ٱتَّقِ ٱللَّهَ أَخَذَتۡهُ ٱلۡعِزَّةُ بِٱلۡإِثۡمِ‌ۚ فَحَسۡبُهُ ۥ جَهَنَّمُ‌ۚ وَلَبِئۡسَ ٱلۡمِهَادُ

And of mankind, there is he whose speech may please you (O Muhammad), in this worldly life, and he calls Allah to witness as to that which is in his heart, yet he is the most quarrelsome of the opponents. And when he turns away, his effort in the land is to make mischief therein and to destroy the crops and the cattle, and Allah likes not mischief. And when it is said to him, “Fear Allah”, he is led by arrogance to (more) crime. So enough for him is Hell, and worst indeed is that place to rest! [Surah Al-Baqarah. Ayaat 204-206]

[وَمِنَ ٱلنَّاسِ مَن يُعۡجِبُكَ قَوۡلُهُ ۥ فِى ٱلۡحَيَوٰةِ ٱلدُّنۡيَا – And of mankind there is he whose speech may please you in this worldly life]: Meaning, the one who hears his speech is pleased when he speaks and he thinks that he has uttered beneficial speech.

He emphasises what he says [وَيُشۡهِدُ ٱللَّهَ عَلَىٰ مَا فِى قَلۡبِهِ – and he calls Allah to witness as to that which is in his heart]: Meaning, he states that Allah knows that what is in his heart agrees with what he says, even though he is lying regarding what he says because his speech contradicts his deeds. His speech would have agreed with his deeds had he been truthful because this is the case regarding the believers- those who are not hypocrites. Due to this, Allah says: [وَهُوَ أَلَدُّ ٱلۡخِصَامِ – yet he is the most quarrelsome of the opponents]: Meaning, when you disagree with him, you’ll find him to be the most quarrelsome, bigoted and difficult person to deal with, as well as the ugly characteristics that results from this behaviour, which are the opposite of the manners of the believers- those who make ease their way, submit to the truth and pardon people.

[وَإِذَا تَوَلَّىٰ سَعَىٰ فِى ٱلۡأَرۡضِ لِيُفۡسِدَ فِيهَا وَيُهۡلِكَ ٱلۡحَرۡثَ وَٱلنَّسۡلَ‌ۗ وَٱللَّهُ لَا يُحِبُّ ٱلۡفَسَادَ – And when he turns away, his effort in the land is to make mischief therein and to destroy the crops and the cattle, and Allah likes not mischief]- Meaning, when this person – the one whose speech amazes you – is not in your presence, he strives to commit sins which is tantamount to corruption in the earth, so cattle and crops are destroyed as a result of that corruption. The blessings in the vegetations, fruits and livestock decrease and become little due to evil deeds.

[وَٱللَّهُ لَا يُحِبُّ ٱلۡفَسَادَ – and Allah likes not mischief]: Meaning, when it is the case that Allah does not like corruption, then He has an intense hatred for the person who sows corruption in the earth, even if such a person utters a good speech merely on the tongue (i.e. says one thing and does something else).

This Ayah contains proof regarding the fact that the statements uttered by individuals are not proof regarding their truthfulness or whether they are upon falsehood, neither that they are righteous nor wicked until deeds ascertain them. So, it is obligatory to examine the condition of those who bear witness, the one who is in the right and the falsifier amongst the people based on the righteousness of their deeds – examine the clear indications and their behaviour, and not to be deceived by how they portray themselves and the praise they give themselves.

Then Allaah mentions that when this person – the one who causes corruption in the earth through acts of disobedience to Allah – is commanded to fear Allah, he becomes arrogant and haughty, [ أَخَذَتۡهُ ٱلۡعِزَّةُ بِٱلۡإِثۡمِ‌ۚ -he is led by arrogance to (more) crime]. So, he combines disobedience to Allah and arrogance towards sincere advisers. [2]

Finally, there is no doubt that this describes the recent behaviour witnessed from Netanyahu and many of his allies, but this does not mean that we also condone the actions of those who deliberately harm the non-combatants under Netanyahu’s authority. Saudi Prince Turki Al-Faisal stated on October 18, 2023:

“All militarily occupied people have a right to resist their occupation, even militarily. I do not support the military option in Palestine. I prefer the other option: civil insurrection and disobedience. It brought down the British Empire in India and the Soviet Empire in Eastern Europe. Israel has overwhelming military superiority and we see in front of our eyes, the devastation and oblivion it is bringing to the people of Gaza.
