Muslims! you are complicit in the crime| Najmul Hoda


Muslims, I accuse you of duplicity, complicity and connivance by silence. There has been a mutation in the heart of Islam, and you are the mutant. You are refusing to wake up to the danger. In private, you gloat over such horrors. In public you maintain that it has nothing to do with Islam, that it is the wrong interpretation of the religion, that these terrorists are some misguided elements, that there is not even the question of misinterpretation, or of misguided elements romping the center-stage, but it’s all a Jewish-American conspiracy.

How brazenly you absolve yourself of any sense of guilt? How you never feel any qualms of conscience? You know, why? Because you are complicit in the crime. You are refusing to rise and speak against that which should be acted and spoken against. No, don’t blame me for suspecting your ‘impeccable credentials’ by asking you to shout from the rooftop. But being one myself, I know how good the Muslims are with their tongues (no pun). Your culture does not know understatement. Every language that you speak—from Arabic to Urdu, and now English too—is ornate, florid and extravagant. Your expressions are loud, bombastic, expansive and hyperbolic. How come when it comes to condemning such a shame that you become subtle, nuanced and barely audible? To me this obfuscation is the proof of your complicity.

Tell me, if there is no problem with you and your Islam why such things are happening in your and its name?

If it is only about interpretation, can we say that there is no religion per se–only interpretation–and that interpretation is religion?

And don’t you think that This Interpretation is The Islam—the most genuine, the most authentic? The interpretation which fills you with the sense of the right and the duty to establish God’s sovereignty on earth! The interpretation which makes you believe that you have the sole right over salvation and paradise. That those who are different from you are destined for fire. And that there is no harm in expediting their passage to hell. This cavalier dispensability of humanity is the core and the crust of the ideology of Islamism—the political Islam, the hybrid monster, the chimera of utopia.

Actually, you have no religion, only ideology. No spirituality, only ambition. Your idea of unity and purity is based on excommunication. When did God come on earth to invest you with the power of excommunication in order to make licit for you the blood you wanted to spill?

Do you know that in Quran there is no notion of Takfeeriyat, i.e., calling others kafirs in order to make their blood licit?

Do you know that there is no concept of apostasy in Quran? Do you know that going back on Islam (i.e., apostasy) was not a crime during the Prophet’s life?

Do you know that in the Treaty of Hudaibiya there was a clause that those who renounced Islam would not be messed with? Do you know that the most famous apostate, Abdullah bin Sarh, was made the governor of Egypt by the Third Caliph? And here you are declaring [even] the Muslims to be kafirs in order to kill them.

But a more fundamental question is, according to which verse in Quran, you have been entrusted with the responsibility to Islamise the entire world, and kill those who do not acquiesce? Remember, both Islam and Kufr are created by God. According to Quran, God has no problem with either kufr or kafir, at least not in this world…and definitely you have no divine sanction to decide upon it. If you read Quran (I doubt you did), you would recall how many times God says that He decides who to bring to Islam and who not to, that whatever differences people have here shall be settled in the Hereafter.

So, don’t act more royal than the king, and more divine than God! Call a spade a spade before it falls on your neck.

    WMDs were not found in Iraq, west invaded them and sieged oilwells and punished iraqis in Abu gharaib prison with worst torture which you cannot be thoughts by these arm chair activists. Sectarian conflicts were promoted. Millions killed by depleted uranium used in aerial bombing and aftermath related birth defects in Iraq. Afghanistan and syria was the new battlefield and constantly the sunni and shia islam are fighting for hegemony that is the age old fitna. Palestinians are decimated by Israelis in two regions Gaza and west bank by criminal gangs like Irgun, Ha gana by worst massacre the hypocrites donot remember nor solve such issues. The Killing of paris is grievious as wests and white skinned people are killed. Did the armed chaired keyboard activist talk of massacre in Central african republic, Nigeria, Mall massacre.

    If a Muslim apostatizes and meets the conditions of apostasy – i.e., he is of sound mind, an adult and does that of his own free will – then his blood may be shed with impunity. He is to be executed by the Muslim ruler or by his deputy – such as the qaadi or judge, and he is not to not be washed (after death, in preparation for burial), the funeral prayer is not to be offered for him and he is not to be buried with the Muslims.
    The evidence that the apostate is to be executed is the words of the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him): “Whoever changes his religion, execute him.” (Narrated by al-Bukhaari, 2794). What is meant by religion here is Islam (i.e., whoever changes from Islam to another religion).
    The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “It is not permissible to shed the blood of a Muslim who bears witness that there is no god except Allaah and that I am His Messenger, except in one of three cases: a soul for a soul (i.e., in the case of murder); a married man who commits adultery; and one who leaves his religion and splits form the jamaa’ah (main group of Muslims).” (Narrated by al-Bukhaari, 6878; Muslim, 1676)
    See al-Mawsoo’ah al-Fiqhiyyah, 22/180.

    Thus it will be clear to you that execution of the apostate is something that is commanded by Allaah, when he commanded us to obey the Messenger (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him), as He says (interpretation of the meaning):
    “O you who believe! Obey Allaah and obey the Messenger (Muhammad), and those of you (Muslims) who are in authority”
    [al-Nisa’ 4:59]

    And the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) has commanded us to execute the apostate as in the hadeeth quoted above: “Whoever changes his religion, execute him.”
    It may need some time for you to be convinced about this matter, and for you to think about it. Perhaps you think that if a person follows the truth and enters into it and embraces the one true religion which Allaah has enjoined, then we allow him to leave it quite easily whenever he wants and to utter the words of kufr (disbelief) that put him outside of Islam, so he can reject Allaah, His Messenger, His Books and His religion, and there is no punishment as deterrent, how will that affect him and others who enter the religion?
    Do you not see that this would make the one true religion, that everyone should follow, like a shop or store which a person can enter when he wants and leave when he wants, and it may encourage others to forsake the truth.

    Imam Malik: Once when asked about the raafidi Shia, Imam Malik said; “Do not speak to them or narrate from them, for surely they are liars.” During one of Imam Malik’s classes, it was mentioned that the raafidi Shia curse the sahaba. Imam Malik recited the verse, “Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah and those with him are harsh with the disbelievers and gentle among themselves. So that the disbelievers may become enraged with them.” (48:29) He then said, “Whoever becomes enraged when the sahaba are mentioned is the one about whom the verse speaks.” (Tafseer al-Qurtubi)
    Imam Ash-Shafi’i: On one occasion Imam Shafi’i said concerning the Shia,

    “I have not seen among the heretics a people more famous for falsehood than the Raafidi* Shia.” and on another occasion he said; “Narrate knowledge from everyone you meet except for the raafidi* Shia, because they invent a hadith and adopt them as part of their religion.” (Minhaj as-Sunnah an-Nabawiyyah) *
    (Some shia at the time of the Alid Imam Zayd ibn ‘Ali demanded that he make a declaration of innocence (tabarra) from whoever disagreed with ‘Ali’s right to be Imam. When Zayd refused, they rejected him, and became known as the “raafida” or rejectors. Those who followed Imam Zayd became known as Zaydis, and have very little difference from mainstream Islam. The Raafidi evolved into the the various Imami shia sects, the largest of which is the Ithna ‘Ashari.)

    the article is an example of what author seems to blame others. He has more words than substance, confusion in arguments. sensationalist, polemical and mumbo jumbo. Tell me Mr, what on earth, Muslims have to prove their innocence all the time some nuts among them commit a crime. if your brother murders another human being, are you supposed to come to police station to say that it is crime and you are innocent! Would be implicit in crime of your brother at any level? Not at all. Communities could not be taken to task for the crimes of their individual members. Muslims are individuals also with all their goodness and flaws and every one has its own way to be good or bad. As for terrorist activities perpetuated by muslims or any one by individual or government, it should be condemned unequivocally. I find it outrageous and insulting to blame me for crimes not committed by me. It is a form of terrorism to impose your own blinkered point of view on me by calling names!

    Muslims are condemning this act but the fact is there are blind people like you who put the blame on oppressed ( Muslims ) and leave the oppressor ( jewdaeochristian alliance), Scott free.Secondly, your false assumption that ISIS is a muslim org is playing the real game.I need to be as dumb as you to believe that they are Muslims.
