Every Crisis is an Opportunity

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم


Global pandemonium is at its peak because of the criminal and terrorist activities committed by the evil Jewish entity against our beloved Blessed Land of Palestine. The evil entity continues to massacre our Muslim brothers and sisters and pillaging our Blessed Land! It commits those heinous crimes in complicity and with blessings from the regional colonial agent rulers led by the Abdel Fattah al-Sisi (Egypt), Abdullah II bin al-Hussein (Jordan), Bashar al-Assad (Syria) and Mahmoud Abbas (Palestinian Authority), Muhammad bin Salman (Saudi Arabia), Recep Tayyip Erdogan (Türkiye) among other colonial agent ‘Muslim’ rulers.

The Jewish entity exists as a shadow of the colonial agent ‘Muslim’ rulers surrounding it who worship Washington and London. It was a creation of the British regime and currently sustained by the American regime. The foundation of its military power is on propaganda, but in reality is like that of a spider web. The confirmation was on Sunday, 8 October 2023, when U.S. Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin announced Sunday that he has ordered American military ships, including an aircraft carrier and additional aircraft, to move closer to the eastern Mediterranean in response to Hamas unprecedented, multi-fronted attack on ‘Israel’. [CBS News, 9/10/2023]. The Office of the British Prime Minister announced on Thursday, 12 October 2023, that UK is deploying two Royal Navy ships, helicopters and surveillance aircraft to the eastern Mediterranean to support Israel and reinforce regional stability. [Reuters, 12/10/2023].

To expose further the weakness of the Jewish entity the President Biden had to visit it on Wednesday, 18 October 2023 and re-assure it of U.S. unwavering support and promised further military aid and other necessities. In addition, British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak visited it on Thursday, 19 October 2023 and pledged to support and stand with it against its enemies. Prior to the visits by Biden and Sunak, their respective foreign diplomats i.e. Antony Blinken (US) and James Cleverly (UK) travelled in advance to prepare the ground for their leaders’ visits.

Indeed, as it was said, ‘In the midst of every crisis, lies great opportunity.’ The ongoing crisis has the following opportunities when we wakeup and respond to the call of Allah (swt):

[يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُواْ اسْتَجِيبُواْ لِلّهِ وَلِلرَّسُولِ إِذَا دَعَاكُم لِمَا يُحْيِيكُمْ وَاعْلَمُواْ أَنَّ اللّهَ يَحُولُ بَيْنَ الْمَرْءِ وَقَلْبِهِ وَأَنَّهُ إِلَيْهِ تُحْشَرُونَ]

“O you who have believed, respond to Allah and to the Messenger when he calls you to that which gives you life. And know that Allah intervenes between a man and his heart and that to Him you will be gathered.” [Al-Anfal: 24].

Tentative opportunities:

First, we must openly rise-up and call our brothers in the Muslim armies to wake-up and respond to the cries and tears of our Muslim colleagues in the Blessed Land of Palestine as an order from Allah (swt):

[وَإِنِ اسْتَنصَرُوكُمْ فِي الدِّينِ فَعَلَيْكُمُ النَّصْرُ] “And if they seek help of you for the religion, then you must help.” [8. Anfal: 72].

[إِنَّ اللّهَ اشْتَرَى مِنَ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ أَنفُسَهُمْ وَأَمْوَالَهُم بِأَنَّ لَهُمُ الجَنَّةَ يُقَاتِلُونَ فِي سَبِيلِ اللّهِ فَيَقْتُلُونَ وَيُقْتَلُونَ]

“Indeed, Allah has purchased from the believers their lives and their properties [in exchange] for that they will have Paradise. They fight in the cause of Allah, so they kill and are killed.” [At-Taubah: 111]. Rasulullah (saw) said:

«مَنْ مَاتَ وَلَمْ يَغْزُ وَلَمْ يُحَدِّثْ بِهِ نَفْسَهُ مَاتَ عَلَى شُعْبَةٍ مِنْ نِفَاقٍ» “The one who died but did not fight in the way of Allah nor did he express any desire (or determination) for Jihad died the death of a hypocrite.” [Sahih Muslim].

«مَا أَحَدٌ يَدْخُلُ الْجَنَّةَ يُحِبُّ أَنْ يَرْجِعَ إِلَى الدُّنْيَا وَلَهُ مَا عَلَى الْأَرْضِ مِنْ شَيْءٍ إِلَّا الشَّهِيدُ، يَتَمَنَّى أَنْ يَرْجِعَ إِلَى الدُّنْيَا فَيُقْتَلَ عَشْرَ مَرَّاتٍ لِمَا يَرَى مِنْ الْكَرَامَةِ»

“No one who has entered Jannah will desire to return to this world even if he should be given all that the world contains, except a martyr. For he will yearn that he should return to the world and be killed ten times on account of the dignity that he will experience by virtue of his martyrdom.” [Bukhari and Muslim].

Second, we must openly call for the Muslim scholars to raise their voices against the occupation of the Blessed Land of Palestine and at the same time call for the toppling/removal of the colonial agent rulers to reestablish the Khilafah (Caliphate). In addition, expose those who claim to be scholars but in reality, they are purveyors of evil by working with the enemies of Islam and Muslims.

Third, we must continue to re-strategize and overhaul our styles of Da’wah activities and concurrently working both online and offline. What matters is to spark the heart and soften it. Hence, leading it to rejuvenate and focus on the Islamic creedal issue of al-Aqsa against the nationalist propaganda as an Arab issue perpetuated by Western colonialists and their allies. Therefore, the Muslim Ummah to view America, UK and the international community as united against it and so it must urgently unite under the Khilafah as its guardian and protector. The Messenger (saw) said:

«إِنَّ الْمُؤْمِنَ لِلْمُؤْمِنِ كَالْبُنْيَانِ، يَشُدُّ بَعْضُهُ بَعْضًا»‏‏.‏ وَشَبَّكَ أَصَابِعَه

“A faithful believer to a faithful believer is like the bricks of a wall, enforcing each other.” While (saying that) the Prophet (saw) clasped his hands, by interlacing his fingers. [Bukhari 481].

Radical and long-term opportunities are:

First, we must openly and without fear of consequences, call for the Muslim armies to topple/remove the colonial agent rulers in the Muslim world. They are the obstacles blocking the rise of Islam and Muslims. Together with their colonial Western masters are plotting and executing evil policies and laws that contradict the al-Qur’an Kareem and Sunnah. Hence causing immeasurable damage in all spheres of life.

Second, the Muslim armies give ba’yah (oath of allegiance) to a Muslim man to occupy the vacant position left by the toppled/removed colonial agent ruler. The conditions of the bayah are to rule by the al-Qur’an Kareem and Sunnah.

The Muslim man becomes the Khalifah (Caliph), whose government is that of the Khilafah (Caliphate) reestablished based on the method of Prophethood.

Third, immediately the new Khalifah declares Jihad against the Jewish entity and its allies. Hence, the emancipation of all Muslim lands including but not limited to our beloved Blessed Land of Palestine, Kashmir among others. Concurrently providing security to its citizens internally by implementing Islam comprehensively across all spheres of life. The Khilafah throws the poisonous international law into the dustbin.

Fourth, we must continue to be steadfast and patient throughout the above three steps. Allah (swt) said:

[وَاسْتَعِينُواْ بِالصَّبْرِ وَالصَّلاَةِ وَإِنَّهَا لَكَبِيرَةٌ إِلاَّ عَلَى الْخَاشِعِينَ]

“And seek help through patience and prayer; and indeed, it is difficult except for the humbly submissive [to Allah].” [2. Al-Baqarah: 45].

Now is the moment to take a stand and usher the Awaited Global Islamic Change because everything is now clear for each person to witness. The lineup is drawn i.e. those supporting Shaitan led by America and its allies and those supporting Allah (swt) and His Messenger (saw) led by Hizb ut Tahrir and its supporters across the world.
The choice is personal but with consequences in this transient dunya and everlasting Akhira. The side you choose to support in this moment of crisis is like tying a noose on your neck. The noose can be a ticket to Jannah or Jahannam.

[مَّن يَشْفَعْ شَفَاعَةً حَسَنَةً يَكُن لَّهُ نَصِيبٌ مِّنْهَا وَمَن يَشْفَعْ شَفَاعَةً سَيِّئَةً يَكُن لَّهُ كِفْلٌ مِّنْهَا وَكَانَ اللّهُ عَلَى كُلِّ شَيْءٍ مُّقِيتًا]

“Whoever recommends and helps a good cause becomes a partner therein, and whoever recommends and helps an evil cause, shares in its burden, and Allah has power over all things.” [An-Nisa: 85].

Ultimately, the winners will be Muslim believers on the side of Allah (swt):

[وَيَقُولُونَ مَتَى هَذَا الْفَتْحُ إِن كُنتُمْ صَادِقِينَ * قُلْ يَوْمَ الْفَتْحِ لَا يَنفَعُ الَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا إِيمَانُهُمْ وَلَا هُمْ يُنظَرُونَ]

“And they say, “When will be this conquest, if you should be truthful. * Say, on the Day of Conquest the belief of those who had disbelieved will not benefit, nor will they be reprieved.” [As-Sajdah: 28 – 29]. In addition, Allah (swt) says:

[وَعْدَ اللَّهِ لَا يُخْلِفُ اللَّهُ وَعْدَهُ وَلَكِنَّ أَكْثَرَ النَّاسِ لَا يَعْلَمُونَ] “[It is] the promise of Allah. Allah does not fail in His promise, but most of the people do not know.” [Ar-Rum: 6]. Glad tidings from Allah (swt):

[وَأُخْرَى تُحِبُّونَهَا نَصْرٌ مِّنَ اللَّهِ وَفَتْحٌ قَرِيبٌ وَبَشِّرِ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ]

“And [you will obtain] another [favour] that you love – victory from Allah and an imminent conquest; and give good tidings to the believers.” [As-Saf: 13].

In conclusion, Salahuddin ibn Yusuf ibn Ayyub after cleansing Bait al-Maqdis (al-Aqsa) of the Crusaders, he swore, ‘You Jews cannot return as long as there are men among us.’ Are you a man?!
