The world of Kufr in Unison

Empowering Weak & Oppressed

Muhammad H. al-'Asi

Shawwal 04, 1416 1996-02-23

Bismillah Ar-Rahmaan Ar-Raheem. Alhumdulillah. Peace and blessings on Muhammad (sallalahu alaihi wa alihi wa sallam), his Noble Companions and Family. Dear Committed brothers, dear committed sisters,

As the days and years go by, our certainty and assurance of Allah’s promise and His words increase. In the varying ayaat of the Qur’an reference is made to those who are opposed to the presence of Allah in reality- these types are to be found almost everywhere. In the verses of the Qur’an, Allah (Whose wisdom is overwhelming and Whose Will is overpowering), on several occasions highlights the confusion of those who have made their lives an arena of activity opposed to Gods presence. We were standing here 13 years ago- in those circumstances, the world was another place; there has been many changes that have occurred since that time. In that world of 13 years ago there was a superpower in what they conveniently described as a superpower world; there was a Soviet Union and a United States. In the climate of that world there were tendencies to believe that there was some type of genuine clash of ideologies and policies between one or the other. That is not in reference to the Prophets words when he says the world view of kufr is but one world view. It doesn’t matter if it’s a so-called United States or a so-called Soviet Union- there’s nothing uniting the Soviets and there’s no union in these States in fact. Then, throughout the cause of these years one of these so-called superpowers has expired, it no longer exists. In the course of these years, the Muslims have not lost momentum, the Muslims have gained momentum.

إِنَّ الَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا يُنفِقُونَ أَمْوَالَهُمْ لِيَصُدُّوا عَن سَبِيلِ اللَّهِ

And these that are described by kufr- opposition to God- spend their energies and time trying to undermine you… (Surah Al anfal verse 36)

These words are from Allah to the Prophet, and hence from Allah of all times and places to followers of the Prophet in all times and places.

إِنَّ الَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا يُنفِقُونَ أَمْوَالَهُمْ لِيَصُدُّوا عَن سَبِيلِ اللَّهِ

These Kafirs expend their resources to undermine you, to liquidate you (Surah verse)

This fact is not one that is cornered in the Arabian Peninsula 1,400 years ago; this fact speaks to reality today. Whether they had a bipolar world in which you had a Shaytaan with two heads or a world with one so-called super power, a Shaytaan with one head, it is still at work against the Muslims. Recently, just yesterday, the International Monetary Fund, (these are the self-styled bosses of the world), agreed to finance Russia with $10Billion. This is not done is absence of facts on the ground. The facts on the ground are that the Russian Government is in an active mode of killing Muslims. This war in Chechnya is not a limited venture or what they would like to call a civil war to bury its significance- this is a war against the Muslims. As these years have been accumulating we notice that as the Muslims throughout these years have been increasing their momentum the kafirs seem to be diminishing their momentum, (with all the noise that they have aside, they make a lot of noise about many issues, but these are high decibels that mean nothing). They thought that some unpredictable event took place in the Middle East almost two decades ago would have no repercussions and they can contain it with their agents in the area, with the stronghold they have on the resources of the Muslims and with the generations that they have brainwashed because of the media that is at their disposal- they thought that with all of this and many other gadgets in their arsenal they would be able to stifle the military-political-ideological-philosophical world view expression of Islam. Here we are counting 13 years…15 years…17 years and they have not been able to do that.

وَإِذْ يَمْكُرُ بِكَ الَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا لِيُثْبِتُوكَ أَوْ يَقْتُلُوكَ أَوْ يُخْرِجُوكَ الْمَاكِرِينَ

Remember how the Kafirs plotted against you, to keep bonded or slay you or expel you out of your home… (Surah Al Anfal verse 30)

You see- Allah’s speaking about a fact that accompanied them; as long as they are dead serious against Allah then this will remain their character. They will work behind the scenes to try to expunge Islam and everyone that represents this Islam; or exile or throw it in some distant land or some unknown corner of the world or cover it up with silence (to) make it seem like an alien idea- something people when they are exposed to (it will) think “what is this!”; or they will try to fossilise this Islam by absorbing it into the status quo- domesticated Islam or domesticated Muslims. Islam itself, by virtue of it being Allah’s communication to mankind cannot be domesticated. It’s those human beings who are entrusted with this responsibility, who become domesticated or little puppies that follow in the footsteps of their master.

وَيَمْكُرُونَ وَيَمْكُرُ اللَّهُ

… they plot and plan… (Surah Al Anfal verse 30)

Such is the characterisation of this event- they squeeze their brains, harness their natural resources and husband their potentials. $10Billion by the International Monetary Fund to the Russians who are killing the Muslims- couldn’t they find another time? Couldn’t they at least find a cease-fire? If they had some decency in them, (they think, see, watch and observe what’s going on,) they’d say- wait a minute! these Muslims are alive and well today. Why should we be giving the Russians $10Billion when the Russians are killing Muslims who are seeking self-determination? That’s all they want. You see, the selection of words is part of the war effort. They don’t call them freedom fighters- have you ever heard anyone referring to the Chechnyans in the media around as freedom fighters or wanting self-determination? No! They are more often than not referred to as separatist- this word applies to many areas of the Muslim land and people.

وَيَمْكُرُونَ وَيَمْكُرُ اللَّهُ

… they plot and plan… (Surah Al Anfal verse 30)

One day before Eid the Egyptian Government sends its security forces into different areas in Southern Egypt and they open fire on innocent Muslims, mowing them down- the last day of Ramadhan. Is this a Government that was observing the month of Ramadhan and that knows what Ramadhan means? Do you hear about this in this media? We guess those who write the news have turned sick in their bellies by contravening the facts! They lied about the Muslims 100 years ago, 1,000 years ago, one generation ago, last year, yesterday- they continue lying about Muslims. They’ll have to take a break from lying about Muslims. Their break doesn’t mean they are going to tell the truth about Muslims, they’re going to remain silent. That constitutes their break. That is their haidas when it comes to the Muslims- “we’ll remain silent.” Kill them in Algeria, Egypt, Africa and in the Middle-East and we’ll maintain a modicum of silence.

وَيَمْكُرُونَ وَيَمْكُرُ اللَّهُ

… they plot and plan… (Surah Al Anfal verse 30)

What else are they investing all that they have against this Islam? You can take a look at many areas and you will find the apt description of the Qur’an applicable. They outline these types of intrigues against this word of Allah- that’s all it is, simple! This is the word of Allah. It’s not your word, it’s not the other person’s word, it’s not my word- these are the words of Allah.

لَوْ أَنزَلْنَا هَٰذَا الْقُرْآنَ عَلَىٰ

If We were to cause this Qur’an to come down, its meanings to be revealed and communicated to… (Surah Al Hashr verse 21)

What can be more harsh than (a mountain)?

جَبَلٍ لَّرَأَيْتَهُ خَاشِعًا مُّتَصَدِّعًا مِّنْ خَشْيَةِ اللَّهِ

… a mountain, you would find this mountain to be in a state or condition of utter resignation to Allah because of the awe inspired by Allah… (Surah Al Hashr verse 21)

And here we are- you would think in the course of these 13 years, that at least around us we would have some Muslims who are waking up to the facts. It’s a shame to find that when some of these Muslims go to Jum’ah prayers, they go there because there’s a meal that is to be served or because they want to break for a couple of hours from their daily routine or job or to satisfy some type of traditional lag that exists in them- they are in the habit of doing that because their father took them to the Masjid when they were young and so it became habitual to go to the Masjid on Friday. But then, with all of these forces around, it is a shame that they are not in touch with these vital facts that affect their own lives. Look at, (for a moment), a comparison of the degree at which Muslims function around us and the degree at which non- Muslims function around us. When it comes to deciding who is going to be the President of this country, you find some Muslims stepping into the political process and some Muslims remaining outside of it. That in itself indicates that there is a confusion. What should be done? What should we do? This confusion is not a feature of a person who is connected and related to the Qur’an- there’s no issue for confusion here. Then, you take a look and compare this ambivalent attitude with those who are looking for some type of solution to the problem around. You’ve probably heard, (if nothing else in the past week), the issue of job insecurity. People feel there’s no job security around so they are concentrating their thoughts on whom to elect provided that person speaks to them about job security. This is what happens to human beings when they are reduced to laboratory animals. A Pavlov Ian response! I’m going to give my vote to he who secures for me a job. What happened to the larger world and existence around? It’s not only your job that matters even though that has become a very important element in your life because you have been converted into the materialism and the materialistic life that you lead. What happens to the larger existence around? Don’t you begin to think for a moment why are we witnessing changes in the climate around? These are not perchance- fires in Texas 100 degrees; floods on the West Coast, snowfalls in the North and North East and these other natural phenomena around. Can’t you see in these a signal from God to you or you want to make believe that nothing is happening and the only thing that matters and counts in this world is whether you have or don’t have a job and the rest of the Universe can come crashing in and it doesn’t matter and it doesn’t bother you.

Some of their military brass are beginning to think about their F14’s- three of them have come down crashing just in the past two or three weeks. You look at these and you want to dismiss them and you don’t want to integrate these whole issues together and look at the problematic existence you have- not on a personal level, it goes beyond that; not on a community level, it supersedes that; not on a national level, it breaks out of that- this has become a worldly issue- a global and a universal issue.

You want God back into your life? The argument is bounced back and forth “do you build a wall around the United States to protect these jobs or you don’t? How do you treat other human beings? Do you accept them as equals or you don’t?” The issue of race, as much as no one wants to speak about it and everyone wants to conceal it is alive and kicking. Dive deep down inside of yourself and see if you can accept the other human being because of the way God created him or you can’t? If you can’t, begin to ask yourself serious questions. A person who doesn’t belong to the establishment and who calls for a million man march in Washington DC goes to other countries and then they describe him as cavorting with dictators. Well! what are they doing? The State Department in the administration- what do they call their interactions with such dictators as Mubarak, Fahd, King Husayn and the other kings and Presidents, none of them have been elected by their own people? That description is more apt to apply to them than to anyone else- “Cavorting with dictators!” We are not in a position to promote any one personality or say whether what he was doing was right or wrong- but they should look at themselves- heal thyself before you begin to try to remedy some one else. They are financing these dictators, training their security agencies and apparatus to torture their own people, denying the people freedom and then they speak about cavorting with dictators- fancy words to disguise an ugly fact and to deflect from their own reality.

Besides, we can see beyond this. Now, you are trying to hide yourself behind an artificial antagonism, the same way you hid yourself behind the century old artificial antagonism between East and West. Why? Are you disturbed that people are enquiring about Islam and you want to control this Islamic growth in this country so, you want to fixate and exercise the attention of the public in an area where you can control so you create this artificial conflict so that you can bring in the free Muslims around into your own cage? No! Muslims had enough of your cages and incarcerations- mental and physical. These Muslims who have come to Islam in this land are not going to be suckered into an artificial conflict that you have in store for them in the coming year or two or whenever. Your veneer of protection is becoming very thin. The Muslims and the common sense people can see through it. We remember in the course of these past 13 years the way you used to refer to Muslims. Now, we watch and listen to the way you refer to yourselves. In the meantime we have no gripes and no qualms with individuals who are seeking the truth. Throughout these years we and Muslims every-where who are sincere and dedicated to Islam have been pointing our fingers at those who are pulling the strings from behind the scenes and victimising many people in the process. With Allah’ assistance and help we will continue to do so relying utterly and totally upon Allah who sees and knows each action and move that you take even though we ourselves may not be privy to it.

وَاللَّهُ غَالِبٌ عَلَىٰ أَمْرِهِ وَلَٰكِنَّ أَكْثَرَ النَّاسِ لَا يَعْلَمُونَ

… and Allah’s decision shall surmount theirs, but many people do not understand this (Surah Yusuf verse 21)

Muslims whose reference is the Qur’an and the Prophet; Muslims who live the meanings of the Qur’an and the model of the Prophet in today’s world…

We are in this country as citizens and legal aliens. As the weeks and months approach we have a cycle that recurs every four years i.e. the elections that will take place for the highest office here, (that happens to be by their own measures) the highest office in the world. We will listen to what they have to say. One of the most interesting features to have emerged in the past few weeks is that the establishment has found itself disconnected from the people. They are no longer in touch with the sentiments, expectations, hopes and fears of the normal “MR.YOU and I.” In the campaign addresses or political speeches that are given it is beginning to appear that the powers behind the powers are nervous at the way some broad sections of the American public (whether they are in the Mid-West or East, the Bible belt of the South or West) are beginning to express themselves along unconventional lines. What’s disturbing to these powers behind the powers if christians want to be christians? Why should they be disturbed about that? Are they doing something wrong? They use their fancy words to disguise themselves once again, (not for the last time), “social conservatives,” they tell us, and “economic conservatives.” These have become their convenient words to hide the facts. It has nothing to do with social conservatives and economic conservatives but it has to do with implementing what is right, decent and acceptable- the concept of the “ma’ruf” that has been maligned and tortured in the minds for generations is just re-emerging- that’s all it is; don’t hide behind “the social conservative and the economic conservative”- it has nothing to do with that. People are beginning to look around and point at the sources of their problems; they are beginning to see beyond what the media has to say; they don’t have to focus on events in Muslim lands, they can look at issues in their own backyards- that’s all they have to do and that’s what they are doing and the establishment, the Government is very uneasy about all of this. They will, with all the resources and powers they have obviously try to channel the outcome to their advantage- that is to be expected, but what is also to be expected is that Allah is going to be in control of the outcome whatever it is and the repercussions of that outcome, whatever they are. Follow very closely in the coming weeks and months what is to be expressed in public. The Zionist-jews in this country- who are the powers behind the powers- are planning about divulging their own agenda and contract for America- we’ll probably be hearing more about this in the weeks and months to come. They want to counter the other contract for America. What’s wrong? Is their media running out of gas? Do they have no more spark plugs in their engines and now they want to revert to the level of the people who they finally discovered are no longer taking for granted what is being said in their major networks and mouthpieces?

وَيَمْكُرُونَ وَيَمْكُرُ اللَّهُ

… And Allah is also plotting and planning (Surah Al Anfal verse 30)

Even though there was a time, just years ago, when they (these Kafirs) said “God is dead.” Now, they are going to wake up to the overwhelming reality and fact that God is alive. We have seen in these few years a world of change and what we have seen is only the “opening shop”; it is only the introduction to a new world that belongs to Allah and not to their rapacious greed and capitalistic decisions- a world that is God-centred, God-motivated and God-oriented. They don’t like to hear this. They would prefer to go on crushing the under class and maximising their profits, but Gods preference is something else. They make believe they don’t hear, but when Allah speaks everyone listens.
