The Standing Committee of Scholarly Research and Ifta in Saudi Arabia Speaks About the Oppression against the Muslims in Palestine and Gaza

Translated by Mustafa George DeBerry

All praise belongs to Allah and may the Peace and Blessings of Allah be upon the most noble of Prophets and Messengers; our Prophet Muhammad, and upon his family members, companions, and those whom follow them in truth until the Day of Judgment.

To Proceed:

Indeed, The Standing Committee for Scholarly Research and Ifta in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia has been following – with great sadness, grief and pain – what has been happening to the Muslims in Palestine and particularly in the Gaza Strip. The ongoing oppression and killing of children, women, the elderly, the violation of the sanctity, the destruction of homes and facilities, in addition to terrorizing the safety of civilians. Without a doubt, this…

Shaykhul Islaam Ahmad ibn Taymeeyah 728AH (May Allah have mercy on him) said,

وإذا كان في المسلمين ضعفوكان عدوهم مستظهرًا عليهم كان ذلك بسبب ذنوبهم وخطاياهم إما لتفريطهم في أداء الواجبات باطنًا وظاهرًا

“If the Muslims are weak and their enemies have gained an upper hand against them, then this is a result of their sins whether it is by their neglectfulness in establishing obligatory matters both inwardly (having the correct belief) and/or outwardly (like prayer, fasting, zakah, etc).”

Shaykh Raslaan:

When a Muslim in any place in the earth asks, ”When will Palestine be returned to us?”
The answer is, ”If you return to Allaah (in correct belief, righteous action, obedience etc.), Palestine will be returned to you.”

This answer is derived from the statement of the Messenger (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam) reported by Imaam Ahmad and Abu Dawood on the authority of Thawbaan (radiyallaahu-anahu) that the Messenger (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam) said: ”The nations will soon call one another against you, just as people call one another to eat from a qas-a (i.e. a large plate of food). They asked: ‘’O Messenger of Allaah, is it because we will be few in number at that time? He (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam) replied: No, you will be many in number at that time, but you will be Ghuthaa –(i.e. like the froth scum on the water). And Allaah will remove from the hearts of the enemies the fear they had for you and will place wahn in your hearts. They said: What is Wahn O Messenger of Allaah? He said: Love of the worldly life and having hatred for death.’’ [Reported by Ahmad 21897 and Abu Daawood 4297. [Declared authentic by Imaam Albaanee in As-saheehah number: 8183]

If we return to Allaah (in correct belief, righteous actions, obedience etc.), He will returned to us what has been taken away away from us. If we remain distant from Allaah (i.e. distant from the correct creed, righteous actions, obedience etc.), we will lose what is in our hands. And indeed Allaah (The Blessed and Most High) has made this judgement in His Tremendous Book, and He (The Most High) said:

 

وَإِذْ تَأَذَّنَ رَبُّكُمْ لَئِن شَكَرْتُمْ لَأَزِيدَنَّكُمْ ۖ وَلَئِن كَفَرْتُمْ إِنَّ عَذَابِي لَشَدِيدٌ

‘’And (remember) when your Lord proclaimed: “If you give thanks (by accepting Faith and worshipping none but Allah), I will give you more (of My Blessings), but if you are thankless, verily! My Punishment is indeed severe.”

[Soorah Ibraaheem: Ayah: 7]


He (The Blessed and Most High) clarified that being thankless for blessings bestowed (on us) will cause it to cease…. Our scholars say, ”Blessings are a prey and being thankful (for it) is the thing that makes (it) remain.
