JUMAH KHUTBA- “Pakistan ka Matlab kya? La ilaha illallah!”

Muslims in Pakistan must be made aware of the divisive agenda of America

By Majed Iqbal– Assalamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatahu,Inshallah you are all in the best state of health and Imaan.Please take time to send durood upon the Priophet (saw) especially on the Day of Jumah.

Abu Hurrayrah (Radi Allah Ta’lah Anhu) narrated Allah’s Messenger (Salallahu-aleihi-wasallam) said, “The person who recites eighty times on Friday (the following Durood) immeadiately after Asar Salah, before standing up from his place, eighty years of his sins will be forgiven by Allah and the reward equivalent to eighty years of worship will be written for him- Allahuma Sallay Ala Sayyidina Muhammadin Nabiyyil Ummiyi wa Ala Aalihi Wa sallim Tasleema

Ya Mashar al-Muslimeen

In the last years. months and recent weeks none of us have failed to notice the dire situation which our brothers and sisters have been facing in Pakistan. News Stations have been beaming in pictures directly into our homes of the horrors that have been going on in the country.

Whether this has been former President of Pakistan Musharraf’s unstinting support for America after 9/11 to invade Afghanistan using Pakistani airspace and land or Musharraf’s role in the lal Masjid operation to build a hatred in the minds of Pakistani’s for those who call for Shariah in the country.

Or whether it was the circus politics of Nawaz Sharif and Zardari fighting for power like scavangers to see who can please America the most after the death of benazir Bhutto.

Or it may have been the swat and waziristan operations by the Pakistani Army where muslim have killed other muslims on the orders of America, disguised as combatting extremism and fighting terrorism. Because of these operations, millions have been displaced and the country is brinking on civil war despite the The Holy Prophet (sallallahu-alayhi wassallam) saying “The destruction of the world is lighter on Allah than the killing of one Muslim man.” [Tirmidhi]

The Holy Prophet, our guide, our master, the one who wanted goodness for this ummah in this life and the next, Muhammad Al Mustaf (sallallahu-alayhi wassallam) said in a hadith very apt for the situation we are facing “The believer is sharp and is not bitten from the same hole twice

Our beautiful Messenger taught us not to become victims of the same plan time and time again. The muslims of Pakistan have risen to this hadith and no longer believe that America is helping their country. The muslims of Pakistan will no longer believe that there rulers are looking after them.

The muslims of Pakistan are not deaf, dumb and blind when American secretary of state Hillary Clinton comes in to their country claiming to build peace and stability when it was America, her plans and her agent rulers who have destroyed Pakistan, creating a scenario of internal fighting. Allah (swt) says in the Quran

 

وَإِذَا قِيلَ لَهُمْ لاَ تُفْسِدُواْ فِي الأَرْضِ قَالُواْ إِنَّمَا نَحْنُ مُصْلِحُونَ

And when it is said to them, Do not make mischief in the land, they say: We are but peace-makers” (Surah al Baqarah- verse 11)

Our Holy Prophet (sallallahu-alayhi wassallam) reminds us about foreign countries dominating the affairs of Muslims when he said “Never does killing amongst a people appear, each killing the other, except that Allah makes their enemy sovereign over them”. (Tabarani)

 

Dear Muslims

The Government in Pakistan alongside the so- called opposition parties who change their colours to suit the season to please and get noticed by the West have all lost credibility in Pakistan.

They have, in the name of tackling terrorism, destroyed the country such that no person feels safe to walk the streets of Lahore, Karachi and Islamabad.

Prime Minister Gilani on the 8th of May announced “for the sanctity of this pure land, for national dignity, to suppress the extremists, to ensure the protection of people, the army has been deployed.”, thereby announcing the start of a war in SWAT.

In whose benefit is this war? For whose interests was this war started? What has been and what will be the consequences of this war?

In order to “suppress the extremists” and to “ensure the protection of the people” – and yet the American army, who it has been revealed a few months back have actual photographic evidence of their soldiers raping and molesting our sister in Iraqi jails, are left to bomb the Pakistani people from pilotless drones which take off from land strips within Pakistan.

Or the recent arrests of American and Dutch personnel carrying a load of weaponary whom the pakistani interior minister Rehman Malik defended and bailed out. Why??

 

Dear Muslims

Let no one be in any doubt that this war is an American war, to help the Americans in their failed imperial war in Afghanistan, to make Muslims fight Muslims, to weaken one of the strongest Muslims states and armies, and to ultimately lead to the division of Pakistan and the strengthening of India as the strategic ally of America in the region.

This is a war that was started at the request of Hillary Clinton when she said that Pakistan was in danger of falling into “terrorist hands” due to “failed government policies”. This kind of false propaganda is the same false propaganda that the Americans used against Iraq before the invasion in 2003.

 

Dear Muslims

Allah warns us – that if we are not together, if we do not help and support one another, strengthen one another, unite together under one leadership, then there will be fitnah and corruption upon the earth. Allah has told us in His Book

 

وَالَّذينَ كَفَرُواْ بَعْضُهُمْ أَوْلِيَاء بَعْضٍ إِلاَّ تَفْعَلُوهُ تَكُن فِتْنَةٌ فِي الأَرْضِ وَفَسَادٌ كَبِيرٌ

“And those who disbelieve are allies of one another, (and) if you (Muslims of the whole world collectively) do not do so [i.e. become allies, as one united block under one Khalifah to make victorious Allâh’s religion], there will be Fitnah and oppression on the earth, and a great mischief and corruption” (8:73)

Allah orders us to unite while Western powers are taking active steps to maintian the siunity that is surfacing in the country. They wish to convince us that the problems in Pakistan are due to a handful of extremists. How beautiful could the timing be of a blast in Peshawar where hundreds were killed on the arrival of Hillary Clinton?? Perfect fuel for her tour to get the muslims of Pakistan on her side! Allah has informed us in the Quran –

 

لَّا يَتَّخِذِ ٱلۡمُؤۡمِنُونَ ٱلۡكَـٰفِرِينَ أَوۡلِيَآءَ مِن دُونِ ٱلۡمُؤۡمِنِينَ‌ۖ وَمَن يَفۡعَلۡ ذَٲلِكَ فَلَيۡسَ مِنَ ٱللَّهِ فِى شَىۡءٍ

Let not the believers take the disbelievers as Auliyâ (supporters, helpers) instead of the believers, and whoever does that will never be helped by Allâh in any way” (3:28)

Then why are our rulers actively, day and night supporting the American plan for Pakistan??

These are critical times for our brothers and sisters in Pakistan.

Isn’t it high time for the people to speak against these rulers who are liars and traitors to Islam and the Muslim ummah? When the Americans wanted to weaken and divide Iraq they had to enter the country with their own troops, and install their own agents to incite the beginning of sectarian conflict, and yet in Pakistan the rulers are willing accomplices, who are so evil that they are happy to co-operate in inciting sectarian and tribal conflict that would ultimately lead to the destruction of their people!!! Allah has told us in his holy book

 

لَّا تَجِدُ قَوۡمً۬ا يُؤۡمِنُونَ بِٱللَّهِ وَٱلۡيَوۡمِ ٱلۡأَخِرِ يُوَآدُّونَ مَنۡ حَآدَّ ٱللَّهَ وَرَسُولَهُ ۥ وَلَوۡ ڪَانُوٓاْ ءَابَآءَهُمۡ أَوۡ أَبۡنَآءَهُمۡ أَوۡ إِخۡوَٲنَهُمۡ أَوۡ عَشِيرَتَہُمۡ

“You (O Muhammad SAW) will not find any people who believe in Allâh and the Last Day, making friendship with those who oppose Allâh and His Messenger, even though they were their fathers or their sons or their brothers or their kindred (people)” (58:22)

 

Dear Muslims

Remember the struggle of your forefathers who created Pakistan for the sake of Islam. Do you not remember their chants “Pakistan ka matlab kya? La ilaha illallah”

Is it not Islam that will honour us in Pakistan. Havn’t we seen the failure of both Democracy and Dictatorship in Pakistan today to steer the country on a progressive path?

Isn’t it time that Muslims established the Khilafah State and run their affairs as an independant nation and feel secure with the implementation of the Shariah- the laws of Allah (swt)??

Isn’t this what opinion poll after opinion poll is refferring to in Pakistan today???

 

Dear Muslims

Let us join our efforts, our voices and stances to act upon the following

  • Speak out against the American war to destroy Pakistan
  • Explain to our friends, family and community about what is happening in Pakistan
  • Speak about it in your masajid and ask the congregation to contact their relatives in the armies and account them
  • Contact your local media, print, web or digital television and air your views to them
  • Contact the branches of the Pakistani parties based here and ask them why they are silent
  • Organise campaigns at University and college
  • Distribute leaflets in your community
  • Set up stalls and engage with all members of the public on the issue
  • Set up facebook groups, blogs, forums to discuss the issues.

Let us be the voices for our Ummah and be part of the inevitable change that is soon to come with the permission of Allah (swt)

 

وَٱلۡمُؤۡمِنُونَ وَٱلۡمُؤۡمِنَـٰتُ بَعۡضُهُمۡ أَوۡلِيَآءُ بَعۡضٍ۬‌ۚ يَأۡمُرُونَ بِٱلۡمَعۡرُوفِ وَيَنۡهَوۡنَ عَنِ ٱلۡمُنكَرِ وَيُقِيمُونَ ٱلصَّلَوٰةَ وَيُؤۡتُونَ ٱلزَّكَوٰةَ وَيُطِيعُونَ ٱللَّهَ وَرَسُولَهُ

The believers, men and women, are Auliyâ’ of one another; they enjoin Al-Ma‘rûf, and forbid from Al-Munkar; they perform As-Salât, and give the Zakât, and obey Allâh and His Messenger (9:71)
