"Salafist Call" Statement on the American Embassy Move to
"Jerusalem" and the "Zionist" Aggression against the
All praise is due to Allah, and may peace and
blessings be upon His Messenger!
Trump's Accession to the US presidency came as
a new experience based on terrorizing all parties at the same time in order to
get the largest share of benefit in all dealings and on all fronts!
From this standpoint, Israel got high and
showed the Jewish bad manners throughout history, about which Allah (SWT) told
in the Quran, " And We conveyed to the Children of Israel in the Scripture
that, "You will surely cause corruption on the earth twice, and you will
surely reach [a degree of] great haughtiness." (17: 4).
The duo "Trump and Netanyahu" have
become openly proud of flouting the UN resolutions, of the relentless pursuit
of imposing a new fait accompli in "Jerusalem" by endorsing
Congress's decision to move the US Embassy to Jerusalem after years of procrastination
by American presidents, and then of the starting of the practical
implementation of this decision in spite of the UN objection to it by an
It is now time for the Arabs to wake up from
the delusion that the satisfaction of "Trump" by them at the expense
of the Islamic nation's identity and its issues would get him side with the
Arabs against Iran let alone siding with them against Israel.
Iran will continue enjoying America's
threatening of the Arabs with itself, while America is tearing the Muslim world
with the help of Iran sometimes, and Israel is reaping, from all of this, more
gains on the ground!
Out of all these political calculations, the
Palestinian people came to declare that its land is not possessed by
"Netanyahu" or "Trump," but it is the right of a people
which resisted, struggled and endured an ordeal for seventy years. And there
the people came out protesting against the starting of the practical
implementation of the American embassy move into "Jerusalem", yet the
occupation forces confronted them with brutal terrorism which resulted in the
fall of about fifty-five murdered, may Allah accept them as martyrs, not to
speak of the thousands of those who had been wounded!
This blood, which had been shed, strikes a
warning bell for all Arab and Islamic governments and organizations to wake up,
rise up and confront this Zionist terrorism by all available means.
And if the Islamic countries are unable to
declare jihad, then there is nothing less than supporting the Jihad of the
Palestinian people, which is a fighting-back-jihad which is stated in the holy
Quran: "Permission [to fight] has been given to those who are being
fought, because they were wronged. And indeed, Allah is competent to give them
victory." (Ch. 22: V. 39), which is, by international standards, the right
of self-defense which is guaranteed by the international covenants.
Therefore, the channels of fundraising have to
be opened, and donations have to be delivered to all factions of the Palestinian
people, so that all Muslims around the world contribute through such channels,
supporting their brethren in Palestine. In parallel with this, Muslims have to
do their best in the prayers, especially as we are at the beginning of Ramadan,
the month of fasting, as the prayers of the one who is fasting are answered, as
the Messenger of Allah (may Allah's peace and blessings be upon him) clarified,
and as Allah said in the Quran: "And when My servants ask you, [O
Muhammad], concerning Me - indeed I am near. I respond to the invocation of the
supplicant when he calls upon Me. So let them respond to Me [by obedience] and
believe in Me that they may be [rightly] guided." (Ch. 2: V. 186).
Indeed, the cause of the enemy's plotting only
makes us more confident in our religion because Allah clarified this point in
the Quran, He said, "And never will the Jews or the Christians approve of
you until you follow their religion." (Ch. 2: V. 120), and the prophet
(may Allah's peace and blessings be upon him) told us about such alliances, he
said "The peoples will soon summon one another to attack you as people
when eating invite others to share their dish." (Reported by Ahmed and
Abou-Dawood, and Authenticated by Imam Albany).
Alongside of the news of this ordeal, the Quranic
guidelines and the prophetic sermons had explained how to overcome it, as Allah
said, "Allah has promised those who have believed among you and done
righteous deeds that He will surely grant them succession [to authority] upon
the earth just as He granted it to those before them and that He will surely
establish for them [therein] their religion which He has preferred for them and
that He will surely substitute for them, after their fear, security, [for] they
worship Me, not associating anything with Me. But whoever disbelieves after
that - then those are the defiantly disobedient." (Ch. 24: V. 55).
This verse shows us the way and promises those
who take it that Allah will give them the power, and the prophet (may Allah's
peace and blessings be upon him) gave the good tidings that this will happen,
Allah's willing, even after the debacle crisis, as he said, "Allah drew
the ends of the world near one another for my sake. And I have seen its eastern
and western ends. And the dominion of my Ummah would reach those ends which
have been drawn near me…" (Reported by Imam Muslim).
And no one should ask himself: will he reach
those moments or not?!
But rather, one should ask himself: has he
contributed to the development of the nation on this road by saying and doing?!
Or have his sayings and doings just been a stumbling block in this way?!
May Allah, glorified is He, use us in
supporting His religion, grant our Palestinian brothers perseverance and
resilience, grant them victory over their enemy and return Al-Aqsa Mosque back
to the Muslims.
