After the Abandonment and Displacement Follows the Abduction of the Displaced Members of Hizb ut Tahrir in Ariha

Not long after the arrival of the displaced from Ghouta in Damascus to Idlib, they were surprised by a shameful behaviour from one of the forces of the factions scattered in the north. Where a group of masked members of the so-called executive forces in the city of Ariha, which implement the wishes of the leaders of the factions that control the people, has kidnapped three from the displaced members of Hizb ut Tahrir from Ghouta. They are Ibrahim Najjar, Hassan Jaza’iri and Talal Darwish, in addition to Ibrahim Hajj Ali from the sons of Ariha.

The abducted members are from the first workers to resume the Islamic way of life by establishing the Khilafah Rashida on the method of Prophethood. They were in Ghouta between their families and among their brothers, proclaiming the truth and calling for it, and they were showing their Ummah the path to liberation. Sheikh Ibrahim Najjar, as a result of his previous positions, was subjected to an assassination attempt in his village Kafr Batna by the Army of Islam faction on 4/4/2015, and other members of the party were kidnapped by these factions, who now resemble the Assad regime in its actions and behaviour.

The security group mentioned above, headed by Amjad Abu Majid, which is affiliated with the faction of the Hawks of the Sham (Suqoor Ash-Sham), raided and stormed the member’s houses and terrorized women and children, without taking into account the sanctity of the houses, in a manner similar to that of the security forces of the criminal regime, in a shameful manner that Abu Jahl the kafir refused to follow, when he said: “The Arabs will say that Abu Jahl terrorized the daughters of Muhammad?!” When he was asked to enter the Prophet’s house and kill him. The group then arrested the members and confiscated their property, money and equipment and severely beat one of them due to a given tip by a hateful or envious informant.

To those who committed this heinous crime in disregard of the sanctity of the Muslims and their homes, we say: you fit the saying of Allah: وَإذَا قِيلَ لَهُمْ لا تُفْسِدُوا فِي الأَرْضِ قَالُوا إنَّمَا نَحْنُ مُصْلِحُونَ، أَلا إنَّهُمْ هُمُ الْمُفْسِدُونَ وَلَكِن لاَّ يَشْعُرُونَ “And when it is said to them, “Do not cause corruption on the earth,” they say, “We are but reformers.” [Al-Baqara: 11] Whether they knew this or not; your corruption will not last, no matter how high your ranks get and proud you are. تِلْكَ الدَّارُ الآخِرَةُ نَجْعَلُهَا لِلَّذِينَ لا يُرِيدُونَ عُلُوًّا فِي الأَرْضِ وَلا فَسَادًا وَالْعَاقِبَةُ لِلْمُتَّقِينَ “That home of the Hereafter We assign to those who do not desire exaltedness upon the earth or corruption. And the [best] outcome is for the righteous” [Al-Qasas: 83]. If you are safe from the people’s anger, do not feel safe from Allah’s wrath, for it is Allah who defends those who believe.إِنَّ اللَّهَ يُدَافِعُ عَنِ الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا إِنَّ اللَّهَ لَا يُحِبُّ كُلَّ خَوَّانٍ كَفُورٍ  Indeed, Allah defends those who have believed. Indeed, Allah does not like everyone treacherous and ungrateful” [Al-Hajj: 38].

And to our people in Ash-Sham, we say: Know that the control of the leaders, who do not fear Allah, of your revolution will lead it to where the enemies want, and your duty today is to stop these leaders and account them. Now their security forces are pursuing the Dawah carriers instead of pursuing those responsible for surrendering Ghouta to the criminal regime and those who abandoned it. So, people of the Ash-Sham! Rise up to the responsibility, and correct the course of your revolution before it is kidnapped by the hands of the abusers, and lead it in the course of overthrowing the regime and instilling the rule of Islam in order to gain Allah’s pleasure and to win and enjoy both worlds.
