On Sunday, 30/4/2017, it was confirmed by Medical and field forces that a child was killed and dozens of civilians were wounded in Ghouta in East Damascus, including the only neurologist in Ghouta by the Jaysh Al-Islam faction in the city of Arbeen, as they were coming to the streets to stop the fighting by the factions in Ghouta that has been taking place in Ghouta for several days. As usual, Jaysh Al-Islam faction admitted that its elements were behind the shooting incidents against the demonstrators in the Eastern Ghouta, but the statement issued by its military leadership indicated that the shooting was not ordered by the organization’s leadership, but they were “Individual actions”.
These events confirm the schism of the faction’s leaders from the revolution and its people, all due to the connection with the regional and western countries. This connection allowed the Ummah in Ash-Sham to lose its authority, so these leaders negotiated and compromised on behalf of the people. And it started the fighting using the sons of Ash-Sham, without taking into consideration the demand of the Ummah. Not only that, they are now confronting the movement of the Ummah following the method of the tyrant rulers.
O our people in Ash-Sham:
You have to realize that you are the sea that contains these military forces. And you can correct their course, and stop the oppressors’ sin, and push them towards the Truth. You know that confronting the movement of the Ummah by force is a sign of weakness and all tyrants when they confront their own people, they soon fall out. Allah (swt) has given you the Sultan (authority), and no one can monopolize this right or confiscate it, this Revolution is your revolution, and you are the ones who have the loudest voice in it, and by your hands you can break the conspiracies of the West, and with your steadfastness and determination to achieve the foundations of the revolution, you deserve the victory of Allah (swt). So proceed with your revolution and stop all those who tamper with its fate, and preserve the blood of the martyrs by marching forward towards overthrowing the regime and the establishment of the rule of Islam, and this is your duty entrusted to you by Allah (swt). The Messenger of Allah ﷺ said:
«وَاَلَّذِي نَفْسِي بِيَدِهِ لَتَأْمُرُنَّ بِالْمَعْرُوفِ وَلَتَنْهَوُنَّ عَنْ الْمُنْكَرِ أَوْ لَيُوشِكَنَّ اللَّهُ عَزَّ وَجَلَّ أَنْ يَبْعَثَ عَلَيْكُمْ عَذَابًا مِنْ عِنْدِهِ ثُمَّ تَدْعُونَهُ فَلَا يُسْتَجَابُ لَكُمْ»
“By Him in Whose Hand my life is, you either enjoin the good and forbid the evil or Allah Azza Wa Jal will certainly soon send His punishment to you, then you will make du’aa (supplication) and it will not be accepted.” (Narrated by At-Tirmidhi)
And for that you deserve the description of the best nation brought to mankind as Allah (swt) says:
كُنتُمْ خَيْرَ أُمَّةٍ أُخْرِجَتْ لِلنَّاسِ تَأْمُرُونَ بِالْمَعْرُوفِ وَتَنْهَوْنَ عَنِ الْمُنكَرِ وَتُؤْمِنُونَ بِاللَّهِ
“You are the best nation produced [as an example] for mankind. You enjoin what is right and forbid what is wrong and believe in Allah”
The Prophet ﷺ said:
«لا يَمْنَعَنَّ أَحَدَكُمْ رَهْبَةُ النَّاسِ أَنْ يَقُولَ بِحَقٍّ إِذَا رَآهُ، أَوْ يُذَكِّرَ بِعَظِيمٍ، فَإِنَّهُ لا يُقَرِّبُ مِنْ أَجَلٍ، وَلا يُبَاعِدُ مِنْ رِزْقٍ»
“No one should let the fear of the people stop him from saying the truth if it is clear to him, or to remind of the great (duties), for this does not bring closer death nor distance Rizq (provision).”
