Daesh, Movimento de Destruição
Attention! O Islamic World, be warned against the Movement of Destruction! In these times the movement of Daesh has become a great challenge and grave danger to the countries of the Middle East, in particular Saudi Arabia. Their danger is not restricted just to the Arab World, but extends to all countries and peoples. This movement is only concerned with the destruction of historical monuments and of the Islamic landscape, as is witnessed in the lands of Iraq and Syria. They have transgressed in this matter and treat Muslims as non-believing hostile combatants, as though they are enemies-at-war and their lands hostile territories. They, and those who imitate them independently, don’t talk of defending the Palestinians by aiding vulnerable women, children and others who have no strength nor weaponry. They are constantly subjected to brutal hardships and continue to severely suffer from the attacks of their neighboring Zionist country, who are coercively and falsely called Israel. Is this not clear evidence that they are agents of Colonialism adverse to Islam and Muslims? And that they are mercenaries for the United States and its allies? Their savagery has led to their misconceived methods and insolent manners in safeguarding Islamic obligations towards those under protection. This Islam, calls for peace and security for the one given protection by a single Muslim. The Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, said: “The lives of Muslims are on parity with each other, the protection of their weakest suffices, and they are allied against others”. These, and those who think they are acting on the Qur’an and Sunnah, subject those in protection to murder and captivity. They even murdered a group of Christian workers from Egypt and held in captivity another. This is the clearest of proofs that this movement is a terrorist movement, who falsify the religion, misrepresent tenants of Islam and avert from the religion. It is a duty on every Muslim to disown them, and it is a duty upon the powers in every nation to halt them and repel their evil by all means. In conclusion to this statement, it is worth me noting that this movement, in its thought and profile, stems from the Khawarij who disappeared in the past and they are the forefathers for those who followed later. They are numerous groups with a multiplicity of names. Amongst them are: the Brotherhood, the financiers of terrorist movements in the Middle East; the Taliban, supporters of terrorism and perpetrators of trouble in various cities across Pakistan; the Jamaat-e-Islami, known throughout the Subcontinent as the Jama’at Mawdudi; and from amongst them are those who call themselves Deobandi and Tablighi, their movements adhere to falsehood and they invite to falseness in India and Pakistan. All of these, with all their factions and beguiling veiled names, unify on one thing which is their claim to be true Muslims and whosoever opposes their doctrine is a mushrik, or polytheist. For this reason they permit the widespread murder of the common Muslims of the Ahlus-Sunnah wa al-Jama’ah, and the plundering and pillage of their wealth. They adopt various modes to cause distress to living Muslims, and those that have past; in fact they are the worst in dishonoring the deceased. For this reason they raze graves, demolish monuments and domes, and reduce them to ruins. They have many evil statutes, which even include that should they arrive at the Green Dome they will do to it what they have done to the resting places of Companions, the pure Ahl-ul-Bayt and common Muslims. May Allah dash their hopes and foil their plans. Hatred has been uttered from their mouths, enmity for Islam itself is visible on their faces, and their hearts conceal far worse! May Allah protect us, and all Muslims from those who wrong and behave tyrannically. — Mufti Muhammad Akhtar Raza al-Qadri al-Azhari, Bareily, India.
