Idlib is being Killed… Do not Stay Silent! Do not be Accomplices with the Murderers!

On Friday, October 6, 2017 Hizb ut Tahrir Wilayah Turkey held press conferences in eight cities under the title: “Idlib is being killed…Do not Stay Silent! … Do not be Accomplices with the Murderers in the Massacres!” After Friday prayers, Muslims prayed for the Muslims who had been martyred in Idlib in recent days, followed by reading of the press release in the cities of Istanbul, Ankara, Bursa, Konya, Adana, Mersin, Gaziantep and Sanliurfa, which was concluded by supplication.

The press release condemned the silence of officials and the media in front of these massacres, stating: “Idlib, which has been bombed for weeks, and in which over three thousand Muslims have been killed only in the past few days, has not attracted the attention of the media as much as the normal attack in Las Vegas had! And while the rulers of the Muslim countries are in a race to console America, none of them is saying anything to America and Russia that are killing our Muslim brothers.”

The press release also addressed the following appeals to the officials involved in these crimes, the insensitive leaders of the armies, the silent and the slavish scholars, and finally the sincere people of Syria: “O rulers of the Islamic countries! Hundreds of thousands of innocent Muslims have been killed and the murder continues, and you are on your friendship with these oppressive Kuffar continuing! When are you going to move for the sake of Allah? How many schools, hospitals and mosques should be bombed for you to move? How many thousands of Muslims you are waiting for them to be killed yet? If you do not move today, when will you move?!”

“O leaders of the armies of the Islamic countries, while Asad continues in his massacres near you, and America is arming the Kurdish Democratic Union Party, why do you go to Idlib? Is it because America wants so? While you are the ones who have not moved in front of dozens of massacres in the Muslims countries, have not taken a single concrete step against these massacres! And have not shot a single bullet for the sake of Allah! Where is the Islamic Army, which you formed with several countries? If this army does not move now, when will it move?!”

“And you, O scholars and opinion leaders, fear Allah and say the word of truth. If you do not speak now, when will you speak? By Allah your betrayal is greater than your incompetence, and your hypocrisy supports the oppressors and the collaborators of the oppressors, so, what’s wrong with you? Why are you doing this when you are the inheritors of the prophets?! Fear Allah as He should be feared and be like your ancestors, and do your work in holding the rulers accountable as the inheritors of the prophets.”

“O Muslims on the face of this Earth, and O our brothers in Syria, do not be discouraged, do not weaken and do not grieve; Allah does not leave His servants who are righteous believers to their sorrows. So, keep your hopes, because if you lose this hope, you lose your Iman. And avoid seditions and disagreements between you. Beware of the Haram money and the malicious bids, and do not let the Kuffar and their followers deceive you with their political tricks. And do not forget that if the whole world leaves you, and the officials turn their backs on you, we as Muslims will stay with you and we will never leave you.”

The press release, with Muslims’ participation, concluded with the following supplication: “O Lord, make us strong and honoured by the Khilafah Rashidah (righteous Caliphate) once again. Grant us unity under the shield of a righteous Khaleefah, under the shadow of the Khilafah state. And make us unified under the banner of At-Tawheed, the banner of the Prophet ﷺ.”
