From Abu Usamah adh-Dhahabi
This is the BEST advice – thus far – I’ve heard ANY Sheikh give concerning the recent drama that has fallen on our UMMAH in Palestine……..
May Allah raise the rank of Sheikh Uthman al-Khamees in the Dunyah and the Hereafter.
??? Shaykh Uthman Al-Khamees – The Events in Palestine ???
- To the Zionists – by Allah you will never enjoy the occupation of the holy land and the Muslims even for the duration of a blink of an eye.
Rather, by Allah besides whom there is no god, we will expel you from it sooner or later – and this is based on the truthfulness of the saying of the Messenger of Allah, Allah’s praise and peace be upon him, “A section, of my people will continue to fight for the right, they will not be harmed by those who forsake them or those who oppose them, until Allah’s Decree comes and they are upon that.”
And when the Messenger of Allah, Allah’s praise and peace be upon him, was asked about them, he said that they are in the surroundings of the holy land. And Allah has informed us in His Book, “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.
So when the [time of] promise came for the first of them, We sent against you servants of Ours – those of great military might, and they probed [even] into the homes’…”
So we (the Muslims) have certain belief that Allah will grant us victory over you sooner or later. And do not be deceived with your alliances with the USA, Europe and other countries, because Allah has informed us of this, so He said, ”
“They have been put under humiliation [by Allah] wherever they are overtaken, except for a covenant from Allah and a rope from men.”
So humiliation is decreed for you, and the heroes will expel you from this holy land.
And do not be deceived with the treaties that have been completed with some of the Muslim countries.
Because these treaties will be annulled, rather, the constitutions of these countries will also be annulled, and our constitution, the book of Allah, will remain as first and last.
So we will expel you, and Allah will indeed grant victory to the Muslims over you. So do not be happy with what you are upon.
The Muslims will be victorious over you one day, and they will expel you, and the trees and the rocks will bare testimony over you, and will say, “O Muslim, there is a Jew behind me.
Come and kill him.” Yes, by Allah, we will kill you and will expel you from this holy land.
This land which is the land of the night journey of our Prophet, Allah’s praise and peace be upon him, this is the land in which the prophets of Allah, peace upon them, have all gathered.
This is the land form which the Messenger of Allah, Allah’s praise and peace be upon him, ascended to the heavens. This is my first message.
- To the Palestinian people – to our Muslim brothers there, persevere and endure and remain stationed and fear Allah, that you may be successful.
By Allah, He will grant you victory, and you will be happy with the victory of Allah. And that day the believers will rejoice in the victory of Allah.
Allah will indeed grant you victory. With patience and certainty, you will be given leadership in the religion. And remember the statement of the Prophet, Allah’s praise and peace be upon him, to Ibn Abbas:-
“And know that if the nations gathered together to harm you, they could not harm you unless Allah has decreed it for you.”
So do not worry about the gathering of these countries against you, as long as Allah is with you.
Remember Allah’s statement, “And recite to them the news of Noah, when he said to his people, ‘O my people, if my residence and my reminding of the signs of Allah has become burdensome upon you – then I have relied upon Allah .
So resolve upon your plan and [call upon] your associates. Then let not your plan be obscure to you. Then carry it out upon me and do not give me respite.'” Be like that for you are, the descendants of the prophets, peace be upon all of them.
- To the different factions of Palestinian authority – many of them have put their hands with Iran and Hezbollah, and other such deviant groups/regimes.
What have they done for you? Where is the Faylaq Al-Quds (Quds Force), where is Iran, where is Hezbollah?
They have abandoned you.
So come back to your senses, and fear your Lord. And strive for the sake of Allah, not for the sake of the party, not for the sake of other than Allah, leave it because it is disgusting/detestable.
Rather, do the Jihad for the sake of Allah. Be with Allah, so that Allah will be with you. And leave those deviants, for they will not benefit you in any way.
- To the Muslim countries – when the problem of Palestine started, the opposition to the Jews were the Muslim countries.
Then they said it is an Arab matter, so the excluded many of the Muslims countries. Then they said it is Middle Eastern matter. So many of the Arabs were excluded, those who are not in the Middle East.
Then they said it has to do with the neighbouring countries of Palestine. So many of the Arab Muslims countries were excluded.
Then they said it is the affair of Palestine. So all countries around Palestine were excluded. Then they said it is the affair of the Palestine Liberation Organization, and that is the only that makes the decisions.
And now Israel is claiming that they are fighting Hamas, by Allah they are liars. The 40 or so children that were killed, and the 30 or so women who were killed, and the men who were killed, they are not from Hamas.
Rather, they have made this a decoy on which they attach their oppression and harm on the Muslims.
So the message to the rulers of the Muslims, fear Allah with regards to this land, the land of night journey of the Prophet, Allah’s praise and peace be upon him.
There must be condemning, the granting of victory for your Muslims brothers over there. You may not have the ability to fight, but at least grant them victory with material support and moral support.
And those countries which normalized with the Jews, they must remember and censure this matter and withdraw their ambassadors and withdraw from such oppressive normalizations, and they must return to Allah.
The issue is not an issue of Hamas and Israel, the matter is the matter of Palestine, the matter of the holy sanctuary, is it a matter of Islam. They have assaulted the Muslims and are still doing so.
- To the Muslims populous. What is our duty?
First, we have to supplicate for them. Do you belittle supplication?
Do not forget your Muslims brothers in Palestine, by supplicating for them to Allah, that He protects their lives, wealth, honour, and land from those criminals.
Also grant them victory by speaking and inviting others, and with money if you are able to. All of this is from the granting of support./victory to our Muslim brothers over there.
Some people take an exception and protest that they curse us and transgress on our rights – first, it is not allowed to generalize on all of the Palestinians in this matter.
Secondly, if they transgress against us, but whoever forgives and makes reconciliation, his reward is due from Allah.
This does not prevent us from supporting them in front of this oppressive criminal Jewish Zionist enemy.
So we endure from our brothers what has come from them on us, and we ask Allah to forgive them and to have mercy on them, and we will support them, even if they transgress against us. Help your brother, whether he is an oppressor or he is an oppressed one.
So we are with you O our Muslim brothers in Palestine. And I ask Allah to grant you victory sooner, not later, on your enemy and our enemy.
