On 26 February, news agency “Radio Liberty”, referring to the entrepreneurs of the market, informs: “Tashkent Commission assigned “Baraka Savdo” market administration in the town of Margilan to take all the pitchers and other utensils for ablution away from the toilet on the territory of the market. They forbid performing ablution. Now market administration controls tightly each salesman, we are not allowed even to perform ablution in secret”.
Karimov’s and his servants’ hatred to Islam and the Muslims knows no bounds. First they closed prayer rooms in markets, then banned the sale of hijabs and all religious things, closed the shops, where Islamic books were sold, banned males from sporting beards and began to undress women wearing the hijab right on the street.
Now the tyrant regime attacks ablution. Being in fear of imminent revival of the Khilafah (caliphate), the regime is continuously trying to erase every manifestation of Islam in society. Uzbek Muslims in their daily lives try to adhere to all personal obligations imposed on them by Allah and one of them is a prayer. And we all know, the ablution is one of the pillars of the prayer.
The market entrepreneurs, knowing all these, created the conditions to perform ablution for themselves and their customers. And as we know, that ablution after going to the latrine is an integral part of Islam. Many Muslims follow the Sunnah of our beloved Prophet Muhammad ﷺ in going with ablution at any time, before and after a prayer. But Karimov’s regime being unclean itself and far from Islam, wants to avert people from the purity, prayer and Islam. The local police take all items linked to ablution and watch everyone closely not allowing him to perform ablution in secret or read a prayer on the territory of markets.
How ignorant and arrogant the tyrant Karimov’s regime! How much this regime must be afraid of the revival of Islam that sees a threat even in ablution!
Muslims in Uzbekistan! The tyrant Karimov’s regime forbids us all that are minor or major, mandatory or desirable in our religion of Islam! It is high time to change this vicious reality fundamentally! It is time to overthrow the tyrannical regime of Jew Karimov! Hurry up to get rid of the tyranny of Taghut Karimov! It is time to revive the Islamic way of life! Allah says in His Noble Book:
وَعَدَ اللَّـهُ الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا مِنكُمْ وَعَمِلُوا الصَّالِحَاتِ لَيَسْتَخْلِفَنَّهُمْ فِي الْأَرْضِ كَمَا اسْتَخْلَفَ الَّذِينَ مِن قَبْلِهِمْ وَلَيُمَكِّنَنَّ لَهُمْ دِينَهُمُ الَّذِي ارْتَضَىٰ لَهُمْ وَلَيُبَدِّلَنَّهُم مِّن بَعْدِ خَوْفِهِمْ أَمْنًا ۚ يَعْبُدُونَنِي لَا يُشْرِكُونَ بِي شَيْئًا ۚ وَمَن كَفَرَ بَعْدَ ذَٰلِكَ فَأُولَـٰئِكَ هُمُ الْفَاسِقُون
“Allah has promised those among you who believe and do righteous good deeds, that He will certainly grant them succession in the land, as He granted it to those before them, and that He will grant them the authority to practice their religion which He has chosen for them. And He will surely, give them in exchange a safe security after their fear. They worship Me, not associating anything with Me. But whoever disbelieves after that – then those are the defiantly disobedient.”
