Ramadan, Ramadan

Ramadan is the Month of Conquests and Victories

The blessed month of Ramadan is linked with the great conquests and victories and this linkage began in the very first Ramadan that the Muslims fasted in the second year of Hijrah. This is when Allah honoured and blessed them with the powerful victory in the great Battle of Badr which broke the strength of the polytheists of Makkah. This was followed by the conquest of Makkah on the 20th of Ramadan in the 8th year after Hijrah which represented the last and final decisive encounter with the Arab Mushrikeen. The Muslims then were victorious over the Persians in the Battle of Al-Buwaib on the 12th of Ramadan in the 13th year Hijri and al-Andalus was opened and conquered in the Ramadan of the year 92 AH. After that came the defeat of the Romans and the opening of ‘Amouriyah under the leadership of Al-Mu’tasim on the 17th of Ramadan in the year 223 AH. Later there came the decisive battle of Ain Jaloot in which the Muslims defeated the Tatars and put an end to their tyranny and repression which happened on the 25th of Ramadan in the year 658 AH.

O Muslims:

We remind you in the blessed month of your victories in spite of the wounds that bleed from your bodies and this is because we have complete confidence in Allah the Most Powerful the Most Mighty that He will provide the victory to His Awliyaa (protectors), that He willeH make His Deen prevail and that the Ummah of Muhammad ﷺ will arise after these wounds stronger and mightier. The Ummah’s Deen will then be victorious, its completeness will be brought together, it will have victory over those who oppressed it and the Shariah of Islam will be established everywhere.

Indeed the whole world is yearning for the justice of Islam and longs for an escape and way out from the oppression of the capitalist systems which have dominated over the people with their oppression and corruption until all of the people in the world fell into a state of misery. However the biggest criminals see a danger in Islam, a danger that threatens their existence and their interests. As such they have put to use all of their tools including the tyrant rulers, agents and media in order to distort Islam and to fight the Awliyaa of Allah. By the permission of Allah, their conniving and plotting will be the source of their own destruction because the vast masses of the Muslims comprehend that the path towards their honour and might and the pleasure of their Lord lies in Islam and its implementation. Therefore they are hastening their steps to establish the Khilafah by which the Deen will be established.

O Muslims in the Blessed Land:

Verily Allah looks at your hastening in His obedience and He tests you with trials to see the genuineness of your Imaan and how much you really cling to the Haqq that Allah سبحانه وتعالى has commanded you with:

أَمْ حَسِبْتُمْ أَن تَدْخُلُوا الْجَنَّةَ وَلَمَّا يَأْتِكُم مَّثَلُ الَّذِينَ خَلَوْا مِن قَبْلِكُم مَّسَّتْهُمُ الْبَأْسَاءُ وَالضَّرَّاءُ وَزُلْزِلُوا حَتَّىٰ يَقُولَ الرَّسُولُ وَالَّذِينَ آمَنُوا مَعَهُ مَتَىٰ نَصْرُ اللَّـهِ أَلَا إِنَّ نَصْرَ اللَّـهِ قَرِيبٌ

“Or do you think that you will enter Paradise while such [trial] has not yet come to you as came to those who passed on before you? They were touched by poverty and hardship and were shaken until [even their] messenger and those who believed with him said, “When is the help of Allah?” Unquestionably, the help of Allah is near”

(Al-Baqara, 2:214)

Our battle with Kufr and its systems are reaching a decisive stage because the foundations of the Mulk Al-Jabriy (Oppressive rule) are in a state of being demolished. The movement that we witness today of the Islamic Ummah in ash-Sham, Yemen and Egypt… regardless of the smoke mixed with it, it nevertheless represents glad tidings of a great goodness. The struggle between the Haqq and the Baatil And from that [ore] which they heat in the fire, desiring adornments and utensils, is a foam like it, by the permission of Allah shall remove the futility soon and will settle upon the Khair (good) which will be pure and clear through which Allah will being benefit to the people.

Allah سبحانه وتعالى said:

أَنزَلَ مِنَ السَّمَاءِ مَاءً فَسَالَتْ أَوْدِيَةٌ بِقَدَرِهَا فَاحْتَمَلَ السَّيْلُ زَبَدًا رَّابِيًا وَمِمَّا يُوقِدُونَ عَلَيْهِ فِي النَّارِ ابْتِغَاءَ حِلْيَةٍ أَوْ مَتَاعٍ زَبَدٌ مِّثْلُهُ كَذَٰلِكَ يَضْرِبُ اللَّـهُ الْحَقَّ وَالْبَاطِلَ فَأَمَّا الزَّبَدُ فَيَذْهَبُ جُفَاءً وَأَمَّا مَا يَنفَعُ النَّاسَ فَيَمْكُثُ فِي الْأَرْضِ كَذَٰلِكَ يَضْرِبُ اللَّـهُ الْأَمْثَالَ

“He sends down from the sky, rain, and valleys flow according to their capacity, and the torrent carries a rising foam. And from that [ore] which they heat in the fire, desiring adornments and utensils, is a foam like it. Thus Allah presents [the example of] truth and falsehood. As for the foam, it vanishes, [being] cast off; but as for that which benefits the people, it remains on the earth. Thus does Allah present examples”

(Ar-Ra’d, 13:17)

And the greatest victory that Allah granted His Messenger was when He provided him with the support of the Ansaar through whom Allah brought victory to the Deen and the establishment of the Islamic State in Al-Madinah Al-Munawarah. We therefore invite the Muslims in these blessed days to strengthen their relationship with Allah the Almighty and to work along with us to establish the Khilafah that the Messenger of Allah ﷺ gave us glad tidings of its coming. And we call the people of power and deterrence from amongst the Muslims to be the Ansaar (assistors and supporters) for this Deen just like the first Ansaar were the supporters of Islam. This is so that we can then lead the Muslims into the battlefields of honour and victory just like the victory of the Day of Badr and to conquests like the conquest of Makkah.

وَيَوْمَئِذٍ يَفْرَحُ الْمُؤْمِنُونَ * بِنَصْرِ اللَّـهِ يَنصُرُ مَن يَشَاءُ وَهُوَ الْعَزِيزُ الرَّحِيمُ

“And that day the believers will rejoice. In the victory of Allah. He gives victory to whom He wills, and He is the Exalted in Might, the Merciful”

(Ar-Rum, 30:4-5)
