No Matter how the USA’s Politics Develop, Turkey’s Political Goal does not Entail the Ummah’s Guardianship

The Turkey-U.S. Joint Working Group will meet in Washington on January 8 to discuss the U.S.’ withdrawal from Syria, Foreign Minister Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu said Friday. Çavuşoğlu announced that there were three joint working groups between Turkey and the U.S. “We are going to discuss the U.S. withdrawal from Syria, and how to coordinate it together in these meetings,” he said, adding that they agreed with his U.S. counterpart Mike Pompeo in a phone call to continue coordination. Regarding postponing the operation east of the Euphrates, Cavusoglu said, “It doesn’t mean that we gave up on our determination and operations we will launch against the YPG in the future.” But a delay was a “logical” move to prevent “friendly fire” in the region, he said.

Muslims are confused with regards to the USA’s withdrawal decision as well as whether Turkey will start an operation east of the Euphrates. They do not understand anything of the talks of their rulers. They discuss and hypothesize a lot about possible outcomes of their decisions, but fail to come to a conclusion. Whereas there is only one question to be asked: “When will Turkey get in action in order to save our women and children in Syria from the hands of the Assad regime, the Russian military and the PYD and YPD terrorists?”

Foreign minister Cavusoglu’s statements clearly reveal that Turkey will not assume the Ummah’s guardianship even after the USA’s withdrawal, and that it will continue to determine its steps according the decisions felt by the Kuffar in Washington. The same attitude applies to the rulers of the other Muslim lands. Until yesterday our politicians did not accept any solution with Assad, but today they shake hands with Assad – for the sake of democracy! The first step was taken by Sudan’s President Omar al-Bashir – of course only by the order of its American masters… And at the 18th Doha Forum in Qatar, Cavusoglu even signalized forgiveness for the murderer of Muslim women and children stating that “If it is democratic election, and if it is a credible one then everybody SHOULD CONSIDER!”

Syria is not any foreign country. Syria is a soil of the Muslim Ummah. America’s withdrawal from Syria or any other Muslim land that it occupied, or Turkey sending soldiers to our Syrian land out of concern regarding PYD-YPG will surely not save the lives of our Syrian sisters and brothers, will not protect our sisters’ honor, and will not end the war against Islam and the Muslims. For these current politicians and the political manoeuvres of their ideology lacks any Islamic perspective and goals.

Whereas a Muslims political principle should be the one of Rasulallah ﷺ: «أُمِرْتُ أَنْ أُقَاتِلَ النَّاسَ حَتَّى يَشْهَدُوا أَنْ لَا إلَهَ إلَّا اللَّهُ وَأَنَّ مُحَمَّدًا رَسُولُ اللَّهِ، وَيُقِيمُوا الصَّلَاةَ، وَيُؤْتُوا الزَّكَاةَ؛ فَإِذَا فَعَلُوا ذَلِكَ عَصَمُوا مِنِّي دِمَاءَهُمْ وَأَمْوَالَهُمْ إلَّا بِحَقِّ الْإِسْلَامِ، وَحِسَابُهُمْ عَلَى اللَّهِ تَعَالَى» “I have been ordered to fight against the people until they testify that there is none worthy of worship except Allah and that Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah, and until they establish the salah and pay the zakat. And if they do that then they will have gained protection from me for their lives and property, unless [they commit acts that are punishable] in Islam, and their reckoning will be with Allah.” (Bukhari, Muslim) Thus it is enough to focus on the principle of “La ilahe Illallah Muhammad ur-Rasulullah” in order to remove any political confusion in the minds.

Accepting the dominance and systems of any ideology other than the Islamic ideology, taking on the duty of carrying out these, without doubt only makes a puppet out of every politician who carries the Islam in his heart. Such puppets will never bring out any purposeful words from their mouths and their behaviours will never make any sense, and their plans will always be detrimental and not beneficial to Muslims. This kind of politician not only abandons the Ummah’s women and children to the hands of killers, but he also endangers his own afterlife.

Let’s not forget that “Politics” is a vital issue, it is the issue of issues. Leaving politics to non-Islamic ideologies and their politicians is surrendering to the inventors and owners of that non-Islamic ideology, ie. surrendering to the colonialist enemies of Islam. Any non-Islamic politics vitiates and distorts Islam’s culture, values and applicability, and as a consequence uses the lives, wealth, honour and deen of the Muslims as a fuel to power the constantly changing interests of the enemies of Islam. The horrifying scenes that we see today are the consequence of this.

The Muslim Ummah’s soils, blood, lives and wealth is one, it is an indiscerptible single body. A true politician must be concerned about the circumstances of the Muslims in Syria, Palestine, Afganistan, East Turkistan, Myanmar, Yemen and Africa at the same intensity as he concerned about the Muslims within his own land. This is an obligation. It is an obligation upon each one of us, woman or man, to be politicians who steadily carry out the politics of this Ummah according the Islamic ideology’s perspective. Our first and foremost goal is to reestablish the Khilafah Rashidah (rightly guided Caliphate) upon the Method of Prophethood. This is because the Ummah’s liberation will only and very quickly come true through a rightly guided Khalifah who rejects any decisions of America.
