Erdogan, should you take Russia as a friend?

On 10th March 201  Putin and Erdogan vow cooperation to help end the Syria war.

Russian President Vladimir Putin has said a truce in Syria is on the whole being observed, as he welcomed his Turkish counterpart Recep Tayyip Erdogan in Moscow, adding that he is cautiously optimistic about the prospects of a deal to end the six-year Syrian conflict. (Source: Al Jazeera)


This was not the first time Recep Tayyip Erdogan met with Putin within 6 months since October last year. Despite Erdogan was once against the Jewish entity, he can now work with Russia who is also undeniably a close ally to the Jewish entity. The relationship between Turkey and Russia seems to have improved after the coup d’état attempt in Turkey 2016.

Why should working with Russia be the utmost priority now for Erdogan?

Does Erdogan have no other choice to work with, to save our Muslim brothers and sisters in Syria?

With this cooperation would it guarantee the refugee the land to return, back home safely?

Or is Erdogan just afraid of losing the power to protect from the U.S. who was once the close friend?

Russia is no friend to the Muslims. Remember, how Russia treated and killed Muslims in Chechnya? Russia, a long and trusted partner for the Syrian regime, launched the airstrikes, bombed and killed many civilians in Syria last year, helping them in gaining back the control in Aleppo, for Assad to continue in power. Not enough of killing the Muslims, Russia wanted to be the “hero” to resolve the conflict in Syria, and will be no advantageous to Islam and to the Muslims in the region.

Dear Erdogan,

Whatever do you think, the power you have is your responsibility to the Ummah to be called upon you by Allah in the Akhirah.

Don’t work with the Kafir because they are the real enemy for you. Use your power to unite Muslims instead, save Muslims in Syria, liberate Palestine, protect the Rohingya, support the Chechens and others to establish Sharia under the Khilafah.

يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُواْ لاَ تَخُونُواْ اللَّهَ وَالرَّسُولَ وَتَخُونُواْ أَمَانَاتِكُمْ وَأَنتُمْ تَعْلَمُونَ

“O you who have believed, do not betray Allah and the Messenger or betray your trusts while you know [the consequence].”

(Al-Anfal, 8:27)

Sultan Abdul Hamid II is the Turkey grandparent and our Khalifah will always fight to protect the Muslims land as well the life of Muslims’ brothers and sisters.
