What happened in New York City?

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/sisters has asked this question:

So this is the brand of Islaam that the Arabs follow. They, who are the most conversant and articulate in understanding the Holy Quraan can commit such despicable deeds is indeed in contrast to what is the reality of Islaam. Aren't they the main culprits in distorting the tenets of the religion?No wonder Islaam gets a bad name all over the world! Please give your version of what has happened in America?

What happened in New York City?

In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and who-ever 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.


The whole pagan and ignorant world is accusing the muslims, and now some of the muslims are accusing the Arabs!! This infighting amongst the believers is exactly what the enemies of Islam want, and we are walking right into their well-laid out trap.


The US and the whole world have not yet given concrete proof or evidence linking the attacks in New York to their main ‘suspect’ Osama bin Ladin! Please note that the key word here is ‘suspect’! Since when did suspicion become guilt in the realms of Law!!!


And if and when the guilt is established, the right thing to do is go after these culprits and bring them to Justice! Where is the justice in destroying a whole country for suspecting one individual of being guilty? What about the 20 million Afghan civilians who have nothing to do with this attack on the US? Allah forbid, if the US and its allies go ahead with their planned attacks on Afghanistan; they will be more guilty than the people who actually committed these horrific crimes in New York. And the stakes of terrorism will be raised!


These are probably one of the most trying times for the believers in the History of Islam. Allah Alone is the Protector and Helper of the believers. May Allah guide us, help us, and bestow on us patience and steadfastness. May Allah always keep us on the Siraat al Mustaqeem.


Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah’s 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,
