Work in us army

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 none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.


Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 60 Surah Mumtahina verses 8-9:

8 Allah forbids you not with regard to those who fight you not for (your) Faith, nor drive you out of your homes, from dealing kindly and justly with them: for Allah loveth those who are just.

9 Allah only forbids you with regard to those who fight you for (your) Faith, and drive you out of your homes, and support (others) in driving you out, from turning to them (for friendship and protection). It is such as turn to them that do wrong.


My dear and beloved brother, the stand of the United States Government against the muslim nations and the belief of Islam is evident and well-known. There is nothing wrong in joining the army of a pagan-nation one lives in or as a job and a means of livelihood; but when the situation arises where that pagan nation declares war or attacks a nation of believers, the believer in the pagan army would in effect would have to fight against brothers from his own faith, and thus put himself and his faith in a very big trial.


Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 58 Surah Mujadila verse 22:

22 Thou wilt not find any people who believe in Allah and the Last Day loving those who resist Allah and His Messenger, even though they were their fathers or their sons or their brothers or their kindred. For such He has written Faith in their hearts and strengthened them with a spirit from Himself. And He will admit them to Gardens beneath which Rivers flow to dwell therein (for ever). Allah will be well pleased with them and they with Him. They are the Party of Allah. Truly it is the Party of Allah that will achieve Felicity.


Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 4 Surah Nisaa verse 76:

76 Those who believe fight in the Cause of Allah; and those who reject faith fight in the Cause of Evil: so fight ye against the friends of the Shaytaan: feeble indeed is the cunning of the Shaytaan!


If one works for a company which provides support for an army who is at war with a muslim nation, then it would be safe to assume that the person will be considered an accomplice of the pagan-army in the Sight of Allah Subhanah; and without an iota of a doubt, the person who is an accomplice or supports the pagan-army against the believing nation, will be responsible for his deeds according to the level of his participation.


Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.


Your brother and well wisher in Islam,
