Mu' meneen Brothers and Sisters,
As Salaam Aleikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers has asked this question:
DO YOU HAVE ANY KNOWLEDGE ABOUT THE FREEMASONS
(There may be some grammatical and spelling errors in the above statement. The forum does not change anything from questions, comments and statements received from our readers for circulation in confidentiality.)
In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is no one (no idol, no person, no grave, no prophet, no imam, no dai, nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.
There is indeed a full fledged Zionist organization and membership cult known as the freemasons. It is a very secretive organization, and its membership is said to include the highest echelons of world leaders, politicians, scientists, philosophers, doctors, industrialists, etc. Its aims vary from the upliftment of the Zionist cause, to the destruction and annihilation of Islam! A lot of people have written a lot of things about this secretive organization. A lot of it is true, and a lot of it could simply be the imagination of the writers Allah Alone knows best.
Allah Subhanah is the Creator of all things in existence. He Created man, and He is the One Who created good and evil; He gave man intelligence and a free will to choose whatever he wills to do for a limited time. He facilitated those who want to do good, on the Right Path; and He allowed the mischief-makers to do their evil. Both have His permission to do as they please. The difference is, Allah is pleased with the ones who do good and will reward them with His Mercy and Forgiveness on the Day of Judgment; and although Allah has allowed the evil to do their evil deeds, He is dis-pleased with them and they will face His Wrath and Anger on an Inevitable Day.
Brother, instead of us worrying about the evil deeds and plans of the enemies of Islam, what we need to do is turn back to Allah Subhanah and His revealed guidance, believe in Him and His Messenger (saws) and strive to do righteous good deeds in accordance with the Quran and Sunnah. That is the Path to success.
No matter what the evil enemies of Allah and Islam plan and plot; only that will happen which our Lord has Willed. If the whole world got together and tried to hurt a believer, they would not be able to do so without the permission of Allah Subhanah! And if the whole world got together and tried to give us some benefit, they would not be able to do so, unless our Lord permits it. Thus, the believers must never fear these evil doers, but rather they should always put their complete Trust in Allah Subhanah Alone. He Alone is the Protector and Helper of the believers. And all Strength and Power belongs to none but Allah Subhanah Alone.
Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 8 Surah Anfal verse 30:They plot and they plan, and Allah plots and plans! And Allah is indeed the Best of Planners!
Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 3 Surah Ale Imran verse 175:It is Shaitaan who is frightening the people with the fear of his patrons. Therefore, in future, do not fear them, but fear Me (Allah), if you are indeed true Believers!
Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 3 Surah Ale Imran verses160:If Allah helps you, none can overcome you! And if Allah forsakes you, who is there, then, after Allah that can help you? Therefore, the true believers should trust in Allah Alone.
Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 9 Surah Taubah verse 33:He is Allah, Who has sent His Messenger with guidance and the Right Way so that He may make it prevail over all the other deens, even though the pagans be much opposed to it.
Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 58 Surah Mujadalah verse 22:They (the believers) are of the party of Allah. Truly it is the Party of Allah which will achieve True Success.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
Your brother and well wisher in islam,
