Dear Mu`mineen, This is a war against terrorism. Nothing to do with religion or Islam. Bin Laden, has already admit that he had been organizing terrorist attacks against the US citizens. Thus, there is no need to search for evidence. The afghan government is supporting him. They still have a choice. If they extradite all the Allahless (godless) terrorists who declared war against civilians nobody will be hurt and they will be helping humanity and the reputation of Islam. If they choose to support this evil group of terrorists they will become evil too. This is the main point. Please do not create excuses such as asking for evidence against Bin Laden or possible death of innocent afghans in case of a war. As you know very well, Quran has a lot of stories of when the time comes Allah punishes the whole population of a sinful town or a nation regardless the innocent people living among them. I believe majority of afghans are true Muslims and they will welcome the US initiated war against terrorism since they have been suffering from terrorism for decades. This war will help Muslim world more than anyone else. Once the terrorism is defeated, Muslims will be able to focus their efforts to their wellbeing and wealth instead of fight with each other. Then, Muslim world will unite and be admired by rest of the world. We have to choose our side carefully. We should never support the evil because they call themselves Muslims. Second point I want to make is, once the war against terrorism is over, the Israel will have no legitimate reason to torture Arabs. If they continue to do so, they will be the second target of the war against terrorism. In order to reach that second stage, Muslim world should avoid any kind of support to terrorists. Please review your message and stop making comments and creating reasonable and misleading excuses that will lead Muslims to hesitate to support the war against terrorism. Best Regards Your brother and well wisher in Islam,
War Against Terrorism
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.
Anyone who understands Islam and follows the clear guidance of the Holy Quran, will agree that what happened in New York on September 11 was wrong. Islam does not allow the killing of civilians, even when in a proper state of war. The Prophet of Allah (saws) prohibited the killing of women, the elderly, the children, and the civilians who did not take part in the war.
This incident has hurt the cause of Islam, because the western media has tainted the name of Islam and the muslims with one brush! The religion of Islam cannot be held accountable for the misdeeds of a few people, just like the religion of Christianity was not labeled with barbarism and genocide through the acts of Hitler, or of John Timothy, or of Mussolini, or of Slobodan Milosovic, etc. When these evil people commited the crimes against humanity, we did not ask the Christian world to wake up on the right side of the bed and not on the side of terrorism! So why do ignorant people today want to make the acts of a few people a clash between the Western and Islamic civilization?
We are but pawns in the turn of events that take place in the world. We have half-information about almost everything that transpires, and the media (not the Truth) plays an absolute critical role in determining who is good and who is evil. The one who is able to shout and scream the loudest is the one who is heard! Make no mistake, we as muslims, condemn this and every act of terrorism that is enacted anywhere in the world.
Allah and the History of the Muslims is witness that Islam has always been very tolerant of the other religions of the world; but we see today that the secular world is not tolerant to Islam. We live by a Divine Code which is unchangeable, and Allah is our witness, we do not want to change it. All we ask is to live, and let us live in peace.
Your Brother and well wisher in Islam,
