ISIS Murders Abu Bakr Mustafa Khayal, Member of Hizb ut-Tahrir
مِنَ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ رِجَالٌ صَدَقُوا مَا عَاهَدُوا اللَّهَ عَلَيْهِ فَمِنْهُمْ مَنْ قَضَى نَحْبَهُ وَمِنْهُمْ مَنْ يَنْتَظِرُ وَمَا بَدَّلُوا تَبْدِيلا
“Among the believers there are men who have been true to the contract they made with Allah. Some of them have fulfilled their pact by death and some are still waiting to do so, not having changed in any way at all.” (Al-Ahzab: 23)
The Baghdadi organization on this day of Tuesday, amidst the last ten days of Muharram Al Haram, called upon the family of the innocent and pious man Abu Bakr Mustafa Khayal. They were informed by ISIS that they have executed their son and they asked his family to come and collect his belongings. ISIS murdered a pure soul for nothing except that he said the word of Haqq (truth) without ISIS feeling ashamed before Allah سبحانه وتعالى, His Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم, and the believers, but rather they were ashamed before the people if the person’s belongings were to be found with them so they were given to his family. They do not fear Allah سبحانه وتعالى in shedding innocent blood, as the Prophet of Allah صلى الله عليه وسلم said:
«لَزَوَالُ الدُّنْيَا أَهْوَنُ عِنْدَ اللَّهِ مِنْ قَتْلِ رَجُلٍ مُسْلِمٍ»
“The demise of the world is less significant to Allah than the killing of a Muslim man”.
Whereas they fear Allah سبحانه وتعالى in things from his belongings and they wanted to return them to his family! The Prophet of Allah صلى الله عليه وسلم spoke the truth when he said,
«إِذَا لَمْ تَسْتَحْيِ فَاصْنَعْ مَا شِئْتَ»
“If you feel no shame, then do as you wish” (Narrated by Al Bukhari).
That mob has killed the martyr Mustafa because he exclaimed words of Haqq in front of them, proclaimed openly in their face that they are not upon guidance, and advised them to expiate their sins by stopping their crimes against the Muslims. The words of Haqq were heavy for them to hear, and it was sharper than the sword and so they killed him, and now they have the anger of Allah سبحانه وتعالى, His Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم, and the believers upon them. They killed him, and they killed many before him, and they still kill the pure souls just like the tyrant rulers have done. But the crime of ISIS is worse, as the tyrant rulers used to kill carriers of Dawah in the name of Secularism, whereas these kill carriers of Dawah in the name of Khilafah in order to distort its image. So, the West rejoiced, with America in the lead, when they found who can distort the image of Khilafah for them and kill its callers, and all that in the name of Islam, an aggression against it:
قَاتَلَهُمُ اللَّهُ أَنَّى يُؤْفَكُونَ
“Allah fight them! How perverted they are!” (At-Tawba: 30)
We have mentioned before in our publications how this mob kills innocent souls and transgresses sanctities until their crimes goes beyond humans extending to trees and rocks. And we have aimed warnings to them about the consequences of these crimes which will bring them disgrace in the Dunya and a painful torment in the Afterlife.
سَيُصِيبُ الَّذِينَ أَجْرَمُوا صَغَارٌ عِنْدَ اللَّهِ وَعَذَابٌ شَدِيدٌ بِمَا كَانُوا يَمْكُرُونَ
“Debasement in the sight of Allah and a severe punishment will strike those who did wrong for the plots that they concocted.” (Al-An’am: 124)
Hizb ut Tahrir mourns you O martyr, the martyr for the word of Haqq.
Congratulations, to you with the master of martyrs in a seat of truth (Paradise), near the Omnipotent King.
Congratulations to you as you are with the predecessors in being martyrs for the word of Haqq in the prisons of the oppressors.
Congratulations to you that Allah سبحانه وتعالى has blessed you with the greatest reward after spending years in the prisons of the tyrant of Ash-Sham which has intensified his crimes.
Congratulations to you for winning greatly as you are martyred by the tyrants’ hands which will increase his crimes as such.
Congratulations to you as your innocent blood will haunt that mob until it destroys it just like the innocent blood of Saeed bin Jubair haunted that tyrant until it destroyed him. And perhaps, the word of Saeed bin Jubair spoken to that tyrant after he ordered Saeed to be killed is the same case as our martyr Mustafa: “I laugh at Allah’s forbearance of you, and your fearlessness from Allah. O Allah do not grant this offender domination upon anyone after me!” Allah سبحانه وتعالى responded to his Dua’a (prayer), so matters became difficult for that oppressor who didn’t remain for long after the martyrdom of Saeed bin Jubair.
Hizb ut Tahrir mourns you O Mustafa the Martyr, we entrust you to Allah سبحانه وتعالى, and we do not say except what pleases His Almighty. We, O Mustafa, are saddened at your departure. Indeed we belong to Allah سبحانه وتعالى and we shall return to Him سبحانه وتعالى.
وَسَيَعْلَمُ الَّذِينَ ظَلَمُوا أَيَّ مُنْقَلَبٍ يَنْقَلِبُونَ
“Those who do wrong will soon know the kind of reversal they will receive!” (Ash-Shu’ara: 227)
