A Statement Regarding the Events at Ft. Hood, TX 



In the Name of Allah. All praise is due to Allah, and may peace and blessings be upon the 
Messenger of Allah, and upon his family, companions, and those who follow his 
footsteps till the day of Judgment. 



To proceed: 

We issue this statement in support of the actions of brother Nidal Malik Hassan; as a 
congratulations for his brave and heroic deed, as well as the jealousness he displayed for 
the pains suffered by the Muslim Ummah as a result of the modern Zionist-Christian 
Crusades against it. May Allah reward you brother Nidal. We ask Allah to accept this 
great feat of yours and make you an example for others to follow. 

We also issue this statement due to the unfortunate yet expected wave of apologetic 
statements being given around the world which smack of apostasy, especially in the land 
of the Lead Crusaders, the United States of America, the likes of which are only given 
either to safeguard their worldly gains from living there, due to their misguidance and 
ignorance of firm principles which they easily throw away based on their false concepts 
of "general interest", or due to the verdicts of misguided or evil scholars. 

On this point we briefly state the following: 

• The general principle is that it is not allowed for the Muslims to live permanently in 
the lands of the infidels. The Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) said: 



'I am free of every Muslim who lives amongst the polytheists

poiytneists... 



There are scholars who have stated its permissibility, but with the condition that the 
Muslim is able to practice the tenets of his religion properly, from the most important 
of which is matters of alliance and disavowal (al-wala wal-bara - the clear 
declaration of alliance with the believers and enmity and disassociation from the 
disbelievers). For most people living amongst the polytheists, this is not something 
possible. 



• It is not permissible for Muslims to aid the infidels in any way in war against the 
Muslims, whether physically, morally, financially, or strategically. There is a 
consensus amongst the scholars that whoever does so, even by a mere gesture, has 
committed an act of apostasy and has left the fold of Islam, based upon the verse: 



O you who believe! Take not the Jews and the Christians as allies, they are 
but allies to one another. If any amongst you allies them, then surely he is one 
of them. Verily, Allah guides not those people who are the wrong-doers. 
(Al-Ma'idah: 51) 



Joining the infidel armies is one of the worst forms of this aid.

The actions of Nidal Malik Hasan were not contrary to the religion of Islam, rather 
they are encouraged by it, for no covenant exists between Muslims in the U.S. and the 
U.S. government and army. If there was initially some covenant, that covenant is now 
void due to the various crimes the United States has committed to break it, from them 
engaging in war with the Muslims, imprisoning Muslims, and by the rape and abuse 
of Muslim men and women to name a few.

If one does hold the opinion that the covenant stands, they in no way are to condemn 
Nidal Malik Hasan or his actions, as there are legitimate scholars and opinions which 
state otherwise. Rather, all Muslims are to regard him as a brother and Mujahid who 
risked his life in avenging the weak and oppressed Muslims around the world, who 
based his actions on valid and legitimate texts and opinions of scholars. Even if he 
had not based his actions on valid opinions and indeed was mistaken, the most which 
would be said that he made a mistake, and that the sin of the infidels was much worse 
than his mistake, as Allah said in the Qur'an: 

ILp !Uj yg 4J jis jl 4J jia c ij*ji jilt jp tfjLfy 
ajt I* y&'\ Za ail gi^-13 £tyJi o^iuitj aj yk$ 4AJ1 'ju^ 
They ask you concerning fighting in the Sacred Months. Say, "Fighting 
therein is a great (transgression) but a greater (transgression) with Allah is to 
prevent humankind from following the Way of Allah, to disbelieve in Him, to 
prevent access to the Sacred Mosque, and to drive out its inhabitants, and 
fitnah is worse than killing..." ('Al-Baqarah: 217) 

This was revealed in regards to a group of Muslims who killed some polytheists of 
Makkah during the sacred months in which fighting was forbidden. Al-Qurtubi said: 

Mujahid and others said that the word fitnah here means disbelief, meaning, "your 
disbelief is worse than our killing them." The majority said, "The meaning of fitnah here 
is putting Muslims through trials which may turn them away from Islam and be 
destroyed," and that this is a greater crime than their killing in the forbidden months. 



If one reads and ponders over the event mentioned, they will find many benefits 
indeed. 



We warn all Muslims, both individuals and organizations, to fear Allah in the views 
they hold and statements they make in regards to the validity of Nidal's actions, the 
character of our brother, and the correct Islamic views in relation to matters of this 
sort. They must be very careful that they do not knowingly or unknowingly fall into 
disbelief and apostasy. 



In conclusion, we again congratulate all Muslims, especially those in the United States, 
and especially our heroic brother Nidal Malik Hasan, for indeed he has raised our heads 
and made us proud. He realized the truth about the "war on terror", and waged his own 
war on terror. When he realized the sin of being in the army, and when he came to know 
he may be sent overseas to fight Muslims, he instead chose to fight those who truly 
deserved to be fought. He risked his life to show that the Muslim Ummah is one Ummah 
indeed, and that Muslims must target their enemies wherever they may be, even in their 
own lands. We hope other "Muslims" in the US army repent from their apostasy and take 
him as a role model, instilling fear in the enemies of Allah and taking them by surprise 
wherever they may be.
