Responding to the spilling of Muslim blood is one of the highest matters in the Deen for us, hence we can’t remain quiet over the massacre in Ghouta. We must undertake all the actions within our control to solve their plight.
Abdullah ibn Umar (ra) narrated that he saw the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) making tawaf of the Ka’bah and saying, “How delightful you are, and how great is your scent! How magnificent you are, and how great is your sanctity! But by the one in whose hand is the soul of Muhammad, the sanctity of a believer, his wealth and his blood, is greater in the sight of Allah than your sanctity, and we do not think of him except good.” (Ibn Majah)
وعن ابن عمر رضي الله عنه قال: رأيت رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم يطوف بالكعبة وهو يقول: ما أطيبك وأطيب ريحك، ما أعظمك وأعظم حُرْمَتك. والذي نفس محمَّد بيده، لحُرْمَة المؤمن أعظم عند الله حرْمَة منكِ، ماله ودمه، وأن نظنَّ به إلَّا خيرًا
رواه ابن ماجة
Action: Make Du’a
The burning concern to aid the Muslims of Ghouta should be channelled by invoking Allah (swt) – the Most Powerful and Best of Responders.
“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]
Action: Speak out
We cannot remain silent over the massacre of the Muslims – the Ummah is a matter of brotherhood and Iman for us. America has waged war through its proxies and the involvement of other nations, in an attempt to crush the blessed revolution for well over half a decade. We must speak out and expose them for their complicity in the atrocities of the Assad regime.
Action: 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. America, 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.
Action: Aid the global call
Only the Khilafah Rashidah will bring about the liberation of Syria, Al-Quds, Kashmir and all of the other occupied lands. We must aid the global call for the re-establishment of the Khilafah: stand for it, call for it and work for it.
“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)
