wide and spacious: should he die as a refugee from home for Allah and His 

Messenger, his reward becomes due and sure with Allah: and Allah is Oft- Forgiving,

A MUSLIM RESPONSE TO THE ATTACK ON AMERICA 

PREFACE 

I have followed with indescribable pain the cowardly American terrorist attacks on 
those Muslims of Afghanistan who took a stand for Islam and who were entirely 
innocent of the September 1 1 th terrorist attack on America. America has consistently 
followed the same policy of ruthless merciless oppression from the time of the 
extermination of the indigenous American- Indian peoples and the enslavement of the 
African people in the Americas to the absolutely shameless support for the relentless 
oppression of the State of Israel in the Holy Land. Only those who are completely 
blind and totally corrupted in respect of their capacity for understanding can fail to 
see the above. 

It was cowardly because the godless enemy is too terrified to ever fight a Muslim on 
a level battleground. That enemy fights his cowardly battles from the safety of 
fighter aircrafts, helicopter gun ships, massive bombs, guided missiles, etc., far up in 
the sky. But Allah Most High will surely bring us that day, Insha Allah, when we will 
be able to face the enemy on the ground on a level battleground. Aminl Until that 
day comes we must continue our struggle to defend ourselves and to resist oppression 
while showing utmost patience and while holding on to faith. The struggle must 
continue regardless of the price we have to pay. 

The Taliban were in a situation comparable to the 12 year old Palestinian Muslim boy 
who confronts US -made Israeli tanks with a stone in his hand. It is he who today has 
inherited the sacred legacy of Prophet David (s). Neither were the Taliban defeated 
by America, nor by the Northern 'Yankee' Alliance with which Iran is still 
comfortable. And the young boys who fight with stones in the Holy Land can never 
be defeated. Rather, the Taliban withdrew their forces in such a way as would allow 
them safety from cowardly fighter aircraft and missiles. And so these soldiers of 
Allah live to fight 'another' day in the struggle to respond to oppression in the Holy 
Land. We salute them! 

Muslims have absolutely no interest whatsoever in waging any war with America or 
with any other country in today's dominant western civilization. The only war we 



A MUSLIM RESPONSE TO THE ATTACK ON AMERICA 

have to wage is the one that will eventually liberate the Holy Land. Indeed that war 
will never end until the prophesy of Prophet Muhammad (s) is fulfilled which will 
witness a Muslim army emerging out of Khorasan and marching triumphantly to 
Jerusalem! All those who read this book, and who are Muslims, should have the 
desire in their hearts to be a part of that army. 

This book salutes the memory of every Muslim who died in Afghanistan in 
consequence of cowardly British, American and Israeli terrorism. The blood and 
tears of our valiant sons who were killed in Afghanistan, and who will now be killed 
elsewhere, or who will be imprisoned in the prisons of the dominant godless world 
order, will not be in vain. Rather it will fertilize the resolve and matchless spirit of 
millions and millions of Muslims (particularly Muslim youth) elsewhere who will 
now respond to this awesome shameless naked oppression by committing themselves 
and their sons and grandsons to that armed Islamic struggle that will eventually 
liberate the Holy Land. This 'dark night' will hardly last another fifty years before 
the sunshine surely returns, Insha Allah, and Truth triumphs for the last time over 
falsehood. At that time Islam would rule the world from Jerusalem. My latest book, 
'Jerusalem in the Qur'an', which is soon to be printed, was written to inspire such 
Muslim youth. I pray that Allah Most High will send those who will translate that 
book into every language spoken by Muslims so that it may reach all such Muslim 
youth. Aminl 

The terrorist attack on America constituted a turning point in history as significant as 
that moment in the summer of 1914 when another terrorist attack launched the First 
World War. I believe that those who are hell-bent on eventually ruling the whole 
world are responsible for both terrorist attacks, and that the Israeli Mossad and its 
allies acted on their behalf in planning and executing the attack of September 1 l l . 
The terrorist attack and the ensuing so-called war on 'terrorism' that it provoked, was 
designed to make the world a safer place for the Jews and for the State of Israel. The 
true terrorists who attacked America on that day know who they are, and Allah Most 
High also Knows who they are. We pray to Allah Most High to expose them, and to 
punish them. Aminl 



A MUSLIM RESPONSE TO THE ATTACK ON AMERICA 

The ruling British/ American/Jewish world order is now more openly at war with 
Islam than ever before. This is because they are approaching the climax of their 
more- than- a- thousand- year war. 'Jerusalem in the Qur'an' makes an attempt to 
explain this war against Islam, and to anticipate what lies ahead for that world order, 
for Muslims, and for the State of Israel. 

The most dangerous and obnoxious of all creatures on the face of the earth today, or 
the most evil people beneath the sky, are those scholars of Islam or Muslim leaders 
who were totally deceived by the September 11 th act of terrorism and who responded 
to it by blaming Arabs and Muslims for the attack and by extending patriotic support 
to Britain/USA/Israel in their war against Islamic Afghanistan. Usama bin Ladin and 
the Taliban regime in Afghanistan were completely innocent of that September 11 th 
attack. The war against them on this account is manifestly unjust. Such misguided 
Islamic scholars and leaders ought to be universally condemned. 

I responded to the September 11 th attack days later by praying to Allah Most High in 
an Islamic Center in Queens, New York, to punish those responsible for the attack 
with the greatest possible punishment, and with a punishment that would continue 
until the Last Day. All those who were present in the Masjid joined me in the prayer. 
Having done that I now invite the Jews to make a similar prayer.

A MUSLIM RESPONSE TO THE ATTACK ON AMERICA 

WHO HAS BENEFITTED FROM THE ATTACK 

ON AMERICA? 



It is unlikely that a European Jew in Britain, or USA, or in the Holy Land, would 
want to read this little book. After all he has more important things to do - like 
pursuing a relentless effort that will culminate in him ruling the world from 
Jerusalem. In order to achieve this goal he will have to enslave all of mankind (i.e., 
gentile humanity) in grinding political and economic oppression. He pursues this goal 
'by hook or by crook' since he does not consider non-Jews (i.e., gentiles) to be a 
people entitled to the same standard of justice and morality to which Jews are entitled 
(when they interact with fellow Jews). The Qur'an refers to this Jewish ethical 
double standard, and contempt for those who are not Jews, in the following passage: 






"Among the People of the Book (i.e., Jews) are some who, if entrusted with a hoard 
of gold, will (readily) pay it back; others, who, if entrusted with a single silver coin, 
will not repay it unless you constantly stood (over them demanding the return of your 
money). (This is because) they say: There is no call on us (to keep faith) with these 
gentiles. But they tell a lie against Allah, and (well) they know it. " 

(Qur'an, ale Tmran, 3:75) 

We quote the Qur'an because Allah Most High has Himself asked that we wage a 
mighty struggle against the disbelievers while using the Qur'an: 



A MUSLIM RESPONSE TO THE ATTACK ON AMERICA 

"Therefore pay no heed to the disbelievers, but, rather, (use the Qur'an to) wage a 
mighty struggle against them. " 

(Qur'an, al-Furqan, 25:52) 

The European Jew has already almost achieved the goal of political and economic 
enslavement of mankind. When he does finally achieve it, and there is nothing that 
suggests that he would not achieve it, it would appear to him to validate his Jewish 
claim to truth. It is, of course, another matter altogether that 'terrorism', oppression, 
and deceit are totally incompatible with the true morality that forms the foundation of 
the religion of Abraham (s). But the spiritual blindness of the Jew who first rejected 
the true Messiah, and then Prophet Muhammad (s), has made him incapable of 
recognizing this elementary truth. In consequence of that 'internal', 'spiritual' 
blindness the Jew is being led into the hell- fire. The Qur'an confirms the link 
between the two: 

"We have surely condemned to the Hellfire huge numbers of human beings as well as 
Jinn. (Why so ?) They have hearts but they cannot understand (since their hearts are 
dead). (Similarly) they have eyes but they cannot see (because they are internally 
blind), and ears but they cannot hear (because they are internally deaf). Such people 
are like cattle. Rather, they are more misguided: for they are the ones who are truly 
heedless (of the Signs of Allah, Most High). " 

(Qur'an, al-'Araf 7:179) 

The Jew would be surprised to learn that those who study the Qur'an and the 
teachings of Prophet Muhammad (s), are aware not only of his plans and his goals but 
also of the awesome deception that he employs in his relentless efforts to achieve 



A MUSLIM RESPONSE TO THE ATTACK ON AMERICA 

those goals. The reality is that while the present may be quite bleak for Muslims, the 
future belongs to Islam and, as the saying goes: 'He who laughs last, laughs best'! 
Therein lies the difference between appearance and reality. 

It has not escaped the attention of Muslims that the only beneficiary of the September 
11 th attack on America was the Jewish State of Israel. This book is certainly not 
'jumping to a conclusion' when it recognizes the Israeli Mossad and other allied 
Jewish groups (such as Jews working in the US government) as the prime suspect 
responsible for planning and executing that attack. Rather, the book arrives at that 
conclusion on the basis of a dispassionate examination of the benefits that Israel, and 
only Israel, has derived from the attack. What are those benefits? 



A MUSLIM RESPONSE TO THE ATTACK ON AMERICA 

FIRST BENEFIT TO ISRAEL: PUBLIC RELATIONS 

BONANZA 



Firstly, Ariel Sharon's coldly calculated and manifestly provocative visit to al-Aqsa 
Masjid in Jerusalem in September 2000 deliberately provoked another gruesome and 
bloody chapter of Israeli oppression in the Holy Land and another chapter of defiant 
Arab Muslim resistance to that oppression. After Sharon's visit and until the 
September 11 th attack on America one year later, the world witnessed a constant 
Israeli effort to escalate the flames of war while deceptively adopting the pose of the 
aggrieved party. The world recognized Israeli oppression and this resulted in a public 
relations disaster for Israel when the whole world (except CNN and its sisters) united 
in condemnation of Israel at the Durban World Conference on Racism held in South 
Africa in August/September 2001. 

The September 11 th attack on America resulted, however, in such a complete and 
instantaneous reversal of Israel's public relatbns disaster that Arabs and Muslims 
suddenly found themselves confronted with their own public relations disaster far 
worse than Israel's. Television really came of age on September 11 th when television 
stations around the world shamelessly joined American TV in a media Crusade that 
used War on Terrorism as a euphemism for War on Islam. The fact that Arabs and 
Muslims were innocent of the September 11 th attack on America merely added salt to 
their wounds. 



A MUSLIM RESPONSE TO THE ATTACK ON AMERICA 

SECOND BENEFIT TO ISRAEL : PAVING THE WAY 
FOR THE GREAT WAR THAT WOULD VALIDATE 

ISRAELI TRUTH 



Secondly, the reversal of the public relations disaster also allowed Israel, now 'off the 
hook' , to merrily continue pursuing its policy of deliberate provocation and constant 
escalation of the bloody conflict against Arabs and Muslims without any significant 
impediment, not even from the US Government. That was no mean achievement. 

Israel's long-term strategy, in its war against Islam, the Qur'an, and the Arabian 
Prophet who was the last of the Prophets (i.e., Muhammad - peace be upon him), is to 
deliver a spectacular demonstration of what would appear to validate the 'truth' of 
the Torah (and Bible) and, hence, 'falsehood' of the Qur'an. Such a demonstration 
would not only demoralize many ignorant Muslims but would also convince Jews that 
they still remain the 'chosen people' . They would be convinced that the return of the 
'golden age' of Judaism when the Messiah would rule the world from the throne of 
David (s) is about to be realized. In fact this book explains that subject. Such a 
'validation' of 'Torah' truth would be achieved through a sudden and dazzling Israeli 
war that would target the entire region around the Holy Land. This was the reason for 
Sharon's coldly calculated act of provocation. That war, which is about to take place 
even as we write this book, would result in such an expansion of the territory of the 
Jewish State as would fulfill the declaration of the Torah (and Bible) that the 
boundaries of the Holy Land (hence Israel) stretch from "the river of Egypt (the 
Nile?) to the river Euphrates (in Iraq)". 

It is now clear that the purpose of the Gulf war of 1991 was to so cripple Iraq as 
would permit Israel to swallow it effortlessly some ten years later. That goal has 
clearly been achieved. Iraq is ready for the plucking. It is also clear that the purpose 
of what certainly appears to have been a Mossad attack on America on September 
11 th was to provoke USA into such a war, 'helter-skelter', against so many States in 
the region as would facilitate Israel's big war of expansion. The US war was also 
supposed to provide Israel with the opportunity to neutralize Pakistan's nuclear 



10 



A MUSLIM RESPONSE TO THE ATTACK ON AMERICA 

weapons capacity and Iran's missile capacity, the marriage of which still constitutes 
the only significant remaining obstacle that prevents Israel from launching its 
spectacular war of territorial expansion. 

That goal has not as yet been achieved because the 'highjacked' aircraft that was 
supposed to crash into Air Force One (or the White House), to kill the US President, 
and to force USA into that major war, crashed instead in Pennsylvania. The Mossad 
and its allies had not calculated for some passengers on that fourth aircraft receiving 
calls on their cellular phones. Those calls may have caused electronic interference 
with the aircraft operating systems (regardless of whether those systems were remote 
controlled or auto controlled or manual), and may have caused the crash. It is also 
possible that passengers attacked the 'highjackers' and that the crash was caused by 
the ensuing struggle. And so the US war now has to be pursued incrementally. 

Israel can still profit, however, from the brilliant transfer of power that was first 
achieved in Pakistan, a transfer that replaced a civilian regime with a military one. 
Only a military regime (and certainly not a civilian regime) could have taken the 
decision to support USA in its war on Islamic Afghanistan. It was therefore 
necessary to first put a military government in place in Pakistan before the attack on 
America on September 1 1 th could take place. The Pakistan military that seized power 
from Prime Minister Nawaaz Shareef in circumstances appearing to be conspiratorial, 
had no alternative but to bow to the American demand for support in the war on 
Afghanistan's Taliban government. A refusal of that American demand would have 
cost the Pakistan military the cover that they needed in order to keep up the pretence 
that there was no conspiracy involved in their assumption of power. Once the 
Pakistan Government consented to support USA in its war against Afghanistan's 
Taliban government the trap was set. Saddam Hussain walked into such a trap 10 
years ago. The Pakistan military walked into a similar trap 10 years later. 

This book anticipates that the US/UK- led alliance will wage a protracted war in 
Afghanistan and elsewhere for the express purpose, among other things, of provoking 
a civil war in Pakistan. If and when elements in the Pakistan armed forces eventually 
revolt and join popular forces opposed to the Government's policy of support for 
USA, and civil war breaks out in Pakistan, such would be the cue for USA to lead its 



11 



A MUSLIM RESPONSE TO THE ATTACK ON AMERICA 

international coalition in an attack on Pakistan's nuclear plants where the nuclear 
weapons are produced. If this opportunity does not present itself they probably have 
a number of alternatives through which to achieve this objective. In fact, USA and its 
allies may very well go on to transform Pakistan into another Turkey or Iraq, or to 
preside over the (further) break-up of Pakistan. Israel and India may or may not have 
to participate directly in that attack on Pakistan's nuclear plant, but Israel and India 
will surely be involved in the strategic planning of the attack. As soon as Pakistan' s 
nuclear power is destroyed Israel will launch her big war of territorial expansion and 
India will be free to dismantle the State of Pakistan. 

If elementary intelligence were supported by minimal internal intuitive spiritual 
insight, (something that is in amazingly short supply in the western civilization which 
now rules the world), it would allow one to recognize the Israeli Mossad and its allies 
as the prime suspect responsible for the absolutely brilliant planning and execution of 
the diabolical attack on America. Indeed if Usama bin Ladin and his small al-Qaidah 
group of fighters could have successfully planned and executed such a stunning attack 
that stingingly humiliated the 'Ruling State' in the world then 'a cow could also jump 
over the moon '! 

Muslims should also pay heed to the stern warning of the Qur'an 'not to accept at 
face value news which comes from a manifestly sinful source lest one unwittingly 
harms another and lives to regret it': 

<£**' ' ■>>\'<\'' "\' \ > " > ^ ' '"' if'""' " > ■* \ 



" O ye who believe! If a sinful person comes to you with any news, ascertain the 
truth, lest ye harm people unwittingly, and afterwards become full of regret for what 
ye have done. " 

(Qur'an, al-Hujurat, 49:6) 



12 



A MUSLIM RESPONSE TO THE ATTACK ON AMERICA 

A modern secular western civilization and its carbon copies around the world who 
accuse Usama bin Ladin of responsibility for the attack on America, and provide no 
evidence of this to the public, can hardly escape from being recognized as 'sinful'. On 
the other hand Usama bin Ladin, who worships the true God of Abraham, has 
emphatically denied responsibility for the attack. Prophet Muhammad (s) has defined 
a Muslim as "one from whose tongue and hand other Muslims are safe". It is the 
duty of all true believers to accept as truth Usama bin Ladin' s denial of responsibility 
for the attack until and unless there is clear and valid evidence that demonstrates that 
he is not speaking the truth. Praise be to Allah that Muslims (other than some one- 
eyed Islamic scholars) have overwhelmingly rejected the fabricated evidence that has 
so far surfaced! 



13 



A MUSLIM RESPONSE TO THE ATTACK ON AMERICA 

THIRD BENEFIT: PAVING THE WAY FOR ISRAEL TO 
BECOME THE 'RULING STATE' IN THE WORLD 



The careful study of the Qur'an and the Ahadith of Prophet Muhammad (s) which we 
have undertaken in our book, 'Jerusalem in the Qur'an', makes it clear that the 
supreme Israeli goal, which was clearly the major objective of the September 11 th 
attack on America, was to pave the way for Israel to replace USA as the 'Ruling 
State' in the world. The 'true' Messiah is supposed to rule the world from the throne 
of David (i.e., Israel and Jerusalem). In order for the 'false' Messiah or Anti-Christ 
(i.e. Dajjal) to convince the Jews of his credentials (as Messiah) he would thus have 
to do the same. He would thus have to: 

i. Liberate the Holy Land of non- Jewish rule, 

ii. Bring the Jews back to the Holy Land to reclaim it in the name of 

Judaism, 
iii. Establish a State of Israel and convince the Jews that it is the Israel 

of David (s), 
iv. Cause that Israel to become the Ruling State in the world, 

v. Appear himself in person in order to rule the world from 

Jerusalem. 

This book directs attention to the fact that (i-iii) above have already been achieved, 
while (iv) is about to be achieved, and (v) may not take long to occur. 

In fact the world now stands at a moment in time quite similar to that moment in the 
summer of 1914 when another brilliantly planned act of terrorism (the assassination 
of the Arch Duke Franz Ferdinand of Austria-Hungary) resulted in a big war which 
brought Britain, the 'Ruling State ' to its knees, and allowed USA to replace Britain as 
the new 'Ruling State' in the world. That war also delivered to the Jews the Balfour 
Declaration and, with it, the return of the Jews to the Holy Land and the 
establishment of the State of Israel. Western secular civilization was so spiritually 
blind at that time that it could not see that it was 'led by the nose' into a First World 



14 



A MUSLIM RESPONSE TO THE ATTACK ON AMERICA 

War that killed millions of Europeans. That civilization, which could not recognize 
those who were responsible for the act of terrorism in 1914, is today similarly 
incapable of recognizing that the same people are responsible for the September 1 1 th 
attack on America! 

Clearly USA, the 'Ruling State ', cannot be brought to its knees other than through a 
collapse of the US economy and the US dollar. That is precisely what could have 
occurred had President Bush been assassinated. The continuing threats to USA, even 
as we write, and after the whole world has ganged- up against Islam, the Qur'an, and 
Prophet Muhammad (s), and even after the US war on Usama and his men, indicates 
that the Jewish effort to bring about the collapse of the US economy and the US 
dollar is still being actively pursued. 

Henry Ford, the famous American industrialist who manufactured Ford motorcars 
warned America of this danger as early as 1919-20. After the First World War, he 
realized the havoc being wrought by Jewish international financiers. He 
commissioned the most intelligent researchers to make a thorough study of the 
international Jew and published their findings in 1919-20 in the 'Dearborn 
Independent', the official organ of the Ford Motor Company. It was later published as 
a book entitled, 'The International Jew '. It has recently been reprinted in Malaysia 
and is widely available at local bookstores. 

The American economy has not as yet collapsed but the writing is on the wall that it 
is under attack by enemies who are embedded within the system itself. If and when 
the US economy does collapse, and if and when Israel also succeeds in establishing 
its military dominance and control over the whole region and in dramatically 
expanding the territory of the State in defiance of the whole world, Israel would then 
succeed USA as the 'Ruling State ' in the world. When that happens the world would 
be greatly surprised, but the true followers of the Arabian Prophet (s) would not be 
surprised at all! 

It is Islam that describes the destiny that would then await Jerusalem, a destiny that 
would eventually witness Islam re- emerging as the 'Ruling State' in the world. That 
moment of triumph for Islam would come when a Muslim army emerges from 



15 



A MUSLIM RESPONSE TO THE ATTACK ON AMERICA 

Khorasan and, in the process of destroying the State of Israel, liberates the Holy 
Land: 

"Abu Hurairah reported that the Prophet (s) said: Black banners shall emerge from 
Khorasan (i. e. area which now includes Afghanistan, NW Pakistan, NE Iran, Central 
Asia north of Afghanistan etc.), and no force will be able to stop them until they are 
inserted in Aelia (Jerusalem). " 

(Sunan Tirmidhi) 

This hadith of the blessed Prophet makes it abundantly clear that Jerusalem will be 
liberated through an armed Islamic struggle. Indeed the Prophet (s) went on to order 
Muslims to join that army "even if they have to crawl over ice" (i.e., even if they 
have to defy the godless governments and their world government in the UN which 
today control the world and which are hell-bent on obstructing Muslims from obeying 
such commands of the Prophet (s)). 



16 



A MUSLIM RESPONSE TO THE ATTACK ON AMERICA 

THE MUSLIM RESPONSE TO THE ATTACK ON 

ISLAM 



The ultimate Muslim response to the 'attack on America', an attack which has been 
cynically exploited to savagely attack Islam and Muslims while hiding behind the 
curtain of 'terrorism', is to rededicate themselves to remain faithful to Allah Most 
High and his Messenger regardless of the price they may have to pay for doing so! 
They do so when they devote their lives to preparing for that armed struggle through 
which the Holy Land will be liberated and Islam will reemerge triumphant in the 
world. This is what the Qur'an has to say about that armed struggle. 

It was the second Shaban in Madina when Allah subhanahu wa t'alah sent down the 
revelation concerning Qital (fighting). The British Prime Minister, the American 
President and the Israeli Prime Minister may have difficulty in digesting the 
following verses of the Qur'an. But in the context of the British/ American/Israeli 
attack on Muslims we must redirect the attention of all Muslims to what Allah Most 
High has said concerning fighting. 

1. He has made it obligatory. It is Shirk for a government, or for the United 

Nations, to outlaw that which Allah has commanded. It is also Shirk for anyone to 
accept as illegal that which Allah has commanded: 

^j^J^J ^r^ L*^° O' Cs-^J <+£=*} J*-^3 ^-^ 






"Fighting is prescribed upon you although you dislike it. But it is possible that ye 
dislike a thing that has benefit for you, and that you desire a thing (not having to 
fight) that is evil for you. And it is Allah (and not the godless Euro-Jews and Euro- 



17 



A MUSLIM RESPONSE TO THE ATTACK ON AMERICA 

Christians who now control the world) Who truly knows (what is beneficial and what 
is harmful for you) and you know not. " 

(Qur'an, al-Baqarah, 2:216) 

2. The Muslim must fight to defend himself when he is attacked: 

E 

"Fight in the cause of Allah those who fight you (the godless Euro- Jews and Euro- 
Christians who now control the world are doing precisely that), hut do not transgress 
limits; for Allah loves not transgressors. " 

(Qur'an, al-Baqarah, 2:190) 

3. Fighting is supposed to result in the establishment of a world free from 
oppression and injustice, and such is possible only when Allah's Din (i.e., Islam) is 
established on earth: 




j< 






"And fight them on until there is no more tumult or oppression, and there prevail 
justice and faith in Allah; but if they cease (fighting you) let there be no hostility 
except to those who practice oppression. " 

(Qur'an, al-Baqarah, 2:193) 



18 



A MUSLIM RESPONSE TO THE ATTACK ON AMERICA 

4. Allah has made it obligatory for Muslims to fight to liberate those of the 
oppressed who are themselves crying out for help and for liberation from 
oppression: 






vol\, 



"And why should ye not fight in the cause of Allah and of those who, being weak, are 
ill-treated (and oppressed)? Men, women, and children, whose cry is: "Our Lord! 
Rescue us from this town whose people are oppressors; and raise for us from Thee 
one who will protect (us); and raise for us from Thee one who will help (us)!" 

(Qur'an, al-Nisa, 4:75) 
[There is no town on the face of the earth today in which there is more oppression 
than Jerusalem.] 

Allah Most High goes on to recall the Jewish reluctance to fight. He then warns of 
the dire consequences of such reluctance: 






"Hast thou not turned thy vision to those who were told to hold back their hands 
(from fight) but establish regular prayers and spend in regular Charity ? When (at 
length) the order for fighting was issued to them, behold! a section of them feared 



19 



A MUSLIM RESPONSE TO THE ATTACK ON AMERICA 

men as, or even more than, they should have feared Allah; they said: Our Lord! why 
hast Thou ordered us to fight? Wouldst Thou not grant us respite to our (natural) 
term, near (enough)? Say: Short is the enjoyment of this world: the Hereafter is the 
best for those who do right; never will ye be dealt with unjustly in the very least! " 

(Qur'an, al-Nisa, 4:77) 

5. A Muslim is not allowed to fight other than under the command of a Muslim 
and other than in accordance with Allah's law as it pertains to fighting. Those who 
fight under any other command or law would be fighting under an evil command: 

f ><t^ .ff^f . > • " \ &{>'*" -1i 

"Those who believe fight in the cause of Allah, and those who reject Faith fight in the 
cause of Evil: so fight ye against the friends of Satan: feeble indeed is the cunning of 
Satan. " 

(Qur'an, al-Nisa, 4:76) 

6. Nor should a Muslim refrain from fighting because of fear of death: 

•AfZt^,*. >.,Af,.v •s {b \ / \ > -:"?^ 



s « s s vs*s *ss> y SI'S' * *&'''*' 'j - » ' 



"Wherever ye are, death will find you out, even if ye are in towers built up strong and 
high! If some good befalls them, they say: This is from Allah; but if evil, they say: 



20 



A MUSLIM RESPONSE TO THE ATTACK ON AMERICA 

This is from thee (O Prophet)! Say: All things are from Allah! But what hath come 
to these people, that they fail to understand a single fact?" 

(Qur'an, al-Nisa, 4:78) 



7. The disbelievers are going to fight the believers with terrible rage and fury. A 

respite will come from Allah if the believers rouse themselves to take steps to respond 
to the disbelievers: 



L&^CfJ^J ^-^^ l<Ja&3^ ^S$? <4 Jr^ 

"Then fight in Allah 's cause, thou art held responsible only for thyself, and rouse the 
Believers. It may be that Allah will restrain the fury of the Unbelievers; for Allah is 
the strongest in might and in punishment. " 

(Qur'an, al-Nisa, 4:84) 

8. The best Muslims are those who rouse themselves and fight in Allah's way. 
They are decidedly superior to those who 'sit at home':

'Wo? egwa/ are ^/zose Believers who sit (at home) and receive no hurt, and those who 
strive and fight in the cause of Allah with their goods and their persons. Allah hath 
granted a grade higher to those who strive and fight with their goods and persons 
than to those who sit (at home). Unto all (in Faith) hath Allah promised good: but

those who strive and fight hath He distinguished above those who sit (at home) by a 
special reward. " 

(Qur'an, al-Nisa, 4:95) 

9. There will be some who will offer as an excuse for their non-participation in 

fighting the plea that they were helpless in this matter. For example they would argue 
that they lived under governments that did not allow them to fight in Allah's cause. 
But such excuses would not save such Muslims from the hell- fire since they would be 
asked: 'Was Allah's earth not wide enough that they could have migrated to another 
place in which they would have had the freedom to fight?':

"When angels take the souls of those who die in sin against their souls, they say: In 
what (plight) were ye? They reply: Weak and oppressed were we in the earth. They 
say: Was not the earth of Allah spacious enough for you to move yourselves away 
(from evil)? Such men will find their abode in Hell, what an evil refuge!

A MUSLIM RESPONSE TO THE ATTACK ON AMERICA 

Except those who are (really) weak and oppressed, men, women, and children who 
have no means in their power, nor (a guide-post) to direct their way. 

For these, there is hope that Allah will forgive: for Allah doth blot out (sins) and 
forgive again and again. 

He who forsakes his home in the cause of Allah, finds in the earth many a refuge, 
wide and spacious: should he die as a refugee from home for Allah and His 
Messenger, his reward becomes due and sure with Allah: and Allah is Oft-Forgiving, 
Most Merciful. " 

(Quran: al-Nisa : -4:97-100)
