Yes, Al-Masjid An-Nabawi and the Ka’aba Have Right on Our Blood, but What of Masjid Al-Aqsa and the Cries of the Oppressed?
A widespread discussion has been sparked after Pakistan’s Defence Minister, Khurram Dastagir, confirmed on 19 February 2018 that a further 1,000 troops are to be sent to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, in addition to the 1,600 already there, whilst adding that Pakistan will not become party to any war in the Middle East or any Arab state. However, the deployment of Pakistan’s troops is not where it is needed by Muslims and Islam, but by the determination of Washington through its agent regimes in the Muslim world. Our troops have been shifted from the eastern border where the Muslims of Occupied Kashmir are being butchered by India, onto the Western border to save the US forces from the devastating ferocity of the Pathan tribal fighters. And whilst the Muslims of Syria, Myanmar (Burma), Palestine and Occupied Kashmir are calling for help until they are hoarse, Pakistan’s rulers send our troops to the side of the US’s key puppet in the Gulf, the King of Saudi Arabia, as he wages bloody war on Muslims in Yemen and works with the US to keep the tyrant of Syria, Bashar, from collapsing before the uprising Muslims.
So, when it comes to liberating Muslim Lands from occupation, Pakistan’s regime insists upon respecting Westphalian nation state borders, but when it comes to securing US projects and US agents to all four corners of the earth, there are no such concerns. Yes, Al-Masjid An-Nabawi and the Ka’aba have right on our blood, but what of Masjid Al-Aqsa? And yes, the Ka’aba has right on our blood but so does the blood of the Muslims which is being spilled in rivers by rampaging kafir armies. Abdulla bin Umar said (saaw), I saw the Prophet (saaw) doing tawwaf around the Ka’aba saying
«مَا أَطْيَبَكِ وَأَطْيَبَ رِيحَكِ مَا أَعْظَمَكِ وَأَعْظَمَ حُرْمَتَكِ وَالَّذِي نَفْسُ مُحَمَّدٍ بِيَدِهِ لَحُرْمَةُ الْمُؤْمِنِ أَعْظَمُ عِنْدَ اللَّهِ حُرْمَةً مِنْكِ مَالِهِ وَدَمِهِ وَأَنْ نَظُنَّ بِهِ إِلاَّ خَيْرًا»
“How good you are and how good your fragrance; how great you are and how great your sanctity. By the One in Whose Hand is the soul of Muhammad, the sanctity of the believer is greater before Allah than your sanctity, his blood and his wealth, and to think anything but good of him.”
Certainly, the need of the time is the Khilafah (Caliphate) on the Method of the Prophethood, so that our honorable troops kill and are killed for the pleasure of Allah (swt), earning His Jannah and the Duas of the oppressed.
