وَاللَّهُ يُرِيدُ أَنْ يَتُوبَ عَلَيْكُمْ وَيُرِيدُ الَّذِينَ يَتَّبِعُونَ الشَّهَوَاتِ أَنْ تَمِيلُوا مَيْلاً عَظِيماً
“Allah wants to accept your repentance, but those who follow [their] passions want you to digress [into] a great deviation.”
The enemies of Islam and their agents spare no effort in corrupting your wives and children through institutions and associations that roam the country widely spreading corruption and vice under various pretexts such as “empowerment of women”, “freedom and equality”, “women’s rights”, “youth initiatives and activities” and many others, coupled with frenzied activities in universities, schools and public places, based on free mixing and breaking the barriers between males and females. Thus, an obscene festival in Rawabi, a disgraceful circus show in Ramallah, dancing and singing concerts in universities, marathons, competitions and mixed festivals based on immodesty in Ramallah, Nablus, Bethlehem and Al-Khalil (Hebron) etc…
The criminal Palestinian Authority (PA) and its institutions, led by the ministries of culture, sports, tourism and education, became the spearhead in spreading corruption and insolence in the implementation of the policies of the enemies of Islam, that spend millions on these corrupting activities. إِنَّ الَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا يُنْفِقُونَ أَمْوَالَهُمْ لِيَصُدُّوا عَنْ سَبِيلِ اللَّهِ “Indeed, those who disbelieve spend their wealth to avert [people] from the way of Allah.” [Al-Anfal: 36].
It is a criminal PA that lost the land, the honor and the sanctities and has taken the disbelievers and the enemies of Islam as allies instead of the believers.
O People of the Blessed Land:
The Palestinian Authority and its leaders have played a dirty role in imposing the submissive projects on the people of Palestine, to subjugate the people of Palestine and make them accept the servile living under the bayonets of the occupation. Your enemies believe that the only guarantee for the survival of the occupation is to corrupt your sons and daughters and “secularize them” so that the future generations are brought up on corruption, shamelessness and detachment from the religion. So, if you were to lose your religion and your children lose their religion, what would remain for you except the servile living under the yoke of occupation?! And this is what your enemy wants وَاللَّهُ يُرِيدُ أَنْ يَتُوبَ عَلَيْكُمْ وَيُرِيدُ الَّذِينَ يَتَّبِعُونَ الشَّهَوَاتِ أَنْ تَمِيلُوا مَيْلاً عَظِيماً “Allah wants to accept your repentance, but those who follow [their] passions want you to digress [into] a great deviation.” [An-Nisa: 27]
O People in the Holy Land:
We address you by the saying of Allah Almighty: يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا قُوا أَنْفُسَكُمْ وَأَهْلِيكُمْ نَاراً وَقُودُهَا النَّاسُ وَالْحِجَارَةُ عَلَيْهَا مَلَائِكَةٌ غِلَاظٌ شِدَادٌ لَا يَعْصُونَ اللَّهَ مَا أَمَرَهُمْ وَيَفْعَلُونَ مَا يُؤْمَرُونَ… “O you who have believed, protect yourselves and your families from a Fire whose fuel is people and stones, over which are [appointed] angels, harsh and severe; they do not disobey Allah in what He commands them but do what they are commanded..” ]At-Tahrim: 6]… We address you by the words of Allah Almighty: يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا لَا تَتَّبِعُوا خُطُوَاتِ الشَّيْطَانِ وَمَنْ يَتَّبِعْ خُطُوَاتِ الشَّيْطَانِ فَإِنَّهُ يَأْمُرُ بِالْفَحْشَاءِ وَالْمُنْكَرِ “O you who have believed, do not follow the footsteps of Satan. And whoever follows the footsteps of Satan – indeed, he enjoins immorality and wrongdoing.” [An-Nur: 21 [
We are addressing you with the saying of the Messenger of Allah ﷺ: «أَلَا كُلُّكُمْ رَاعٍ، وَكُلُّكُمْ مَسْئُولٌ عَنْ رَعِيَّتِهِ،…، وَالرَّجُلُ رَاعٍ عَلَى أَهْلِ بَيْتِهِ، وَهُوَ مَسْئُولٌ عَنْهُمْ، وَالْمَرْأَةُ رَاعِيَةٌ عَلَى بَيْتِ بَعْلِهَا وَوَلَدِهِ، وَهِيَ مَسْئُولَةٌ عَنْهُمْ» “Each of you is a shepherd and each of you is responsible for his flock… a man is a guardian of his family and is responsible for them; a woman is a guardian of her husband’s house and children and is responsible for them” (Narrated by Muslim). Raise your children on Islam and teach them chastity and modesty, instill in their hearts the love of Allah and the love of His Messenger, dress your daughters with the cloth of piety and cover them with the gown of chastity, the Jilbab. Teach your children how to protect and guard the honors, warn them of what the enemies of Islam plot against to them, warn them of the consequences of sin and the wrath of Allah (swt).
And we address you by the words of the Messenger of Allah ﷺ: «مَنْ يَلِي مِنْ هَذِهِ البَنَاتِ شَيْئاً، فَأَحْسَنَ إِلَيْهِنَّ، كُنَّ لَهُ سِتْراً مِنَ النَّارِ» “Whoever is in charge of (put to test by) these daughters and treats them generously, then they will act as a shield for him from the (Hell) Fire.” (Narrated by Bukhari).
O Muslim women: Islam is your fortress, and piety to Allah is your clothing, so fear Allah in yourselves, the Almighty said: فَالصَّالِحَاتُ قَانِتَاتٌ حَافِظَاتٌ لِلْغَيْبِ بِمَا حَفِظَ اللَّهُ “So righteous women are devoutly obedient, guarding in [the husband’s] absence what Allah would have them guard.” [An-Nisa: 34]
We address you by the saying of Allah Almighty: وَقُلْ لِلْمُؤْمِنَاتِ يَغْضُضْنَ مِنْ أَبْصَارِهِنَّ وَيَحْفَظْنَ فُرُوجَهُنَّ وَلَا يُبْدِينَ زِينَتَهُنَّ إِلَّا مَا ظَهَرَ مِنْهَا وَلْيَضْرِبْنَ بِخُمُرِهِنَّ عَلَى جُيُوبِهِنَّ وَلَا يُبْدِينَ زِينَتَهُنَّ إِلَّا لِبُعُولَتِهِنَّ أَوْ آبَائِهِنَّ أَوْ آبَاءِ بُعُولَتِهِنَّ أَوْ أَبْنَائِهِنَّ أَوْ أَبْنَاءِ بُعُولَتِهِنَّ أَوْ إِخْوَانِهِنَّ أَوْ بَنِي إِخْوَانِهِنَّ أَوْ بَنِي أَخَوَاتِهِنَّ أَوْ نِسَائِهِنَّ أَوْ مَا مَلَكَتْ أَيْمَانُهُنَّ أَوِ التَّابِعِينَ غَيْرِ أُولِي الْإِرْبَةِ مِنَ الرِّجَالِ أَوِ الطِّفْلِ الَّذِينَ لَمْ يَظْهَرُوا عَلَى عَوْرَاتِ النِّسَاءِ وَلَا يَضْرِبْنَ بِأَرْجُلِهِنَّ لِيُعْلَمَ مَا يُخْفِينَ مِنْ زِينَتِهِنَّ وَتُوبُوا إِلَى اللَّهِ جَمِيعاً أَيُّهَ الْمُؤْمِنُونَ لَعَلَّكُمْ تُفْلِحُونَ “And tell the believing women to reduce [some] of their vision and guard their private parts and not expose their adornment except that which [necessarily] appears thereof and to wrap [a portion of] their headcovers over their chests and not expose their adornment except to their husbands, their fathers, their husbands’ fathers, their sons, their husbands’ sons, their brothers, their brothers’ sons, their sisters’ sons, their women, that which their right hands possess, or those male attendants having no physical desire, or children who are not yet aware of the private aspects of women. And let them not stamp their feet to make known what they conceal of their adornment. And turn to Allah in repentance, all of you, O believers, that you might succeed.” [An-Nur: 31]
O Muslim Women: Answer the call of Allah and His Messenger: يَا أَيُّهَا النَّبِيُّ قُلْ لِأَزْوَاجِكَ وَبَنَاتِكَ وَنِسَاءِ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ يُدْنِينَ عَلَيْهِنَّ مِنْ جَلَابِيبِهِنَّ ذَلِكَ أَدْنَى أَنْ يُعْرَفْنَ فَلَا يُؤْذَيْنَ وَكَانَ اللَّهُ غَفُوراً رَحِيماً “O Prophet, tell your wives and your daughters and the women of the believers to bring down over themselves [part] of their outer garments. That is more suitable that they will be known and not be abused. And ever is Allah Forgiving and Merciful.” [Al-Ahzab: 59]
O Sons and Daughters:
You are the treasure of your Ummah, and you are the ones who are depended upon in its revival and uplifting. Islam is your Deen and is your creed, and the war on it [Islam] is raging all over the earth, so, do not obey the disbelievers and the criminals and obey Allah and His Messenger: يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا إِنْ تُطِيعُوا الَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا يَرُدُّوكُمْ عَلَى أَعْقَابِكُمْ فَتَنْقَلِبُوا خَاسِرِينَ * بَلِ اللَّهُ مَوْلَاكُمْ وَهُوَ خَيْرُ النَّاصِرِينَ “O you who have believed, if you obey those who disbelieve, they will turn you back on your heels, and you will [then] become losers. * But Allah is your protector, and He is the best of helpers.” [Al-i-Imran: 149-150]
O Muslim Youth: Your cause is Islam, so do not drift away from it otherwise you will perish. What the West and the enemies of Islam want from you is the detachment from the concepts and values of Islam. They want to kill the protectiveness of honor in yourselves and want our women to remove the Jilbab to reveal their Awra to people. They want our daughters to mingle with men, to lose their modesty, they want you to live the Western way of life with all its filth … This is the reality of America and Europe and the reality of the enemies of Islam. The Almighty says: مَا يَوَدُّ الَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا مِنْ أَهْلِ الْكِتَابِ وَلَا الْمُشْرِكِينَ أَنْ يُنَزَّلَ عَلَيْكُمْ مِنْ خَيْرٍ مِنْ رَبِّكُمْ “Neither those who disbelieve from the People of the Scripture nor the polytheists wish that any good should be sent down to you from your Lord.” [Al-Baqara: 105]
The criminal Palestinian Authority and the enemies of Islam are vexed by Islam, they are vexed by the chastity of Muslim women, and they are vexed by their legitimate cloth (Jilbab), which preserves the dignity of the women of the believers. It rages them your adherence to the provisions of Islam. So, what will you do? Will you obey Allah and His Messenger or will you obey the criminals and the enemies of Islam?!
O people of Palestine:
Have Protectiveness… Have Protectiveness…. Have Protectiveness. The Messenger of Allah ﷺ said:«الْمُؤْمِنُ يَغَارُ، الْمُؤْمِنُ يَغَارُ، الْمُؤْمِنُ يَغَارُ، وَاللهُ أَشَدُّ غَيْراً» “The believer is protective (has a sense of Ghira), the believer is protective, the believer is protective, and Allah is more protective” (Narrated by Ahmad)
O our People, Brothers and Sisters in the Blessed Land, Has the time not come for you to see the Truth and act upon it?! Has the time not come for you to walk in the path of your glory, Allah’s satisfaction and Jannah?! Has the time not come for you to deny the oppressors and the criminals and stop their hands?! Has the time not come for you to carry the call of Islam to establish Allah’s Deen and its arbitration under the shadow of the Khilafah Rashidah (righteous Caliphate) on the method of the Prophethood, which will liberate the country from the abomination of the usurpers, unite the ranks of Muslims and preserve your honors and your homes…أَلَمْ يَأْنِ لِلَّذِينَ آمَنُوا أَنْ تَخْشَعَ قُلُوبُهُمْ لِذِكْرِ اللَّهِ وَمَا نَزَلَ مِنَ الْحَقِّ “Has the time not come for those who have believed that their hearts should become humbly submissive at the remembrance of Allah and what has come down of the truth?” [Al-Hadid: 16]?!
Yes, By Allah the time has come … Yes, By Allah the time has come.
Oh Allah, expand our breasts and the breasts of the Muslims for your obedience, your satisfaction and for supporting your Deen, and make for the good that we carry a path to their hearts.
May prayers, peace and blessings of Allah be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family and his companions. and those who followed them in truth until the Day of Judgment… And praise be to Allah, Lord of the Worlds.
