“The parable of the believers in their affection, mercy and compassion for each other is that of a body. When any limb aches, the whole body reacts with sleeplessness and fever.” [Sahih Bukhari]
What can we do?
The burning concern to aid the Muslims of Ghouta should be channelled by invoking Allah (swt) – the Most Powerful and Best of Responders.
أَمَّن يُجِيبُ الْمُضْطَرَّ إِذَا دَعَاهُ وَيَكْشِفُ السُّوءَ وَيَجْعَلُكُمْ خُلَفَاءَ الْأَرْضِ
“Or, Who listens to the (soul) distressed when it calls on Him, and Who relieves its suffering, and makes you inheritors of the earth?” [An-Naml: 62]
We cannot remain silent over the massacre of the Muslims – the Ummah is a matter of brotherhood and Iman for us. The battle for Syria has been raging for well over half a decade and the regional/international powers are using it to crush any opinion for real change. We must speak out and expose them for turning a blind eye to the atrocities of the Assad regime.
Reject false solutions and western intervention
Organise demonstrations which reject the false solutions being imposed by the West and call for the return of the Khilafah in As-Shaam.
Hold the Muslim rulers to account, who have directly or indirectly defended the Assad regime. Erdogan turned a blind eye to the slaughter of Aleppo. Saudi Arabia bombs Muslims in Yemen, yet excuses Assad’s brutalities. The surrounding rulers are standing against real change as it will put an end to their un-islamic regimes.
Expose the plans of the colonialists. The US, Russia, Britain and France are all in agreement real change should not come to Syria. Their objectives are to subjugate this noble Ummah via brutality and murder, enabling them to plunder her wealth and resources and plant their feet firmly in the Muslim world.
Aid the global call
Only the Khilafah Rashidah will bring about the liberation of Syria, Al-Quds, Kashmir and all other places of occupation. We must aid the global call for the re-establishment of the Khilafah:
stand for it, call for it and work for it.
إِنَّمَا الإِمَامُ جُنَّةٌ يُقَاتَلُ مِنْ وَرَائِهِ وَيُتَّقَى بِهِ فَإِنْ أَمَرَ بِتَقْوَى اللَّهِ عَزَّ وَجَلَّ وَعَدَلَ كَانَ لَهُ بِذَلِكَ أَجْرٌ وَإِنْ يَأْمُرْ بِغَيْرِهِ كَانَ عَلَيْهِ مِنْهُ
“Only the Imam is a shield, behind whom you fight and you protect yourself with, so if he orders by taqwa and is just then he has reward for that, and if he orders by other than that then it is against himself.” (Muslim)
