Summary

1)     Jews are a source of evil and enmity against them is part of our faith.

2)     The Jews war against the Muslims is a religious one.

3)     Nationalism has not and can never bring any benefit to the Muslims.

4)     Our war against the Jews can only be conducted according to the principles of Islaam.

5)     The reasons why Salaah Ad-Deen was able to defeat the crusaders.

6)     The miserable predicament of contemporary Muslims and the role of the sick-hearted Muslims and hypocrites in calling for peace settlements.

7)     The Jews never keep their covenants and our war against them is continuous.

8)     The evil role of the Jews in Madeenah, their plots against Muslims and the stance of the Prophet sallallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam towards them.

 

The Jews, who are the nation of pigs and monkeys, are nothing but a source of evil, corruption, tribulation and war. Hatred against the Muslims is inherited by every generation of Jews who in turn teach it to their children. Our enmity and hostility against them is based on our faith. The Jews have never and will never lower the banner of war against us Muslims; it is a war between truth and falsehood, belief and disbelief. It is a war between the truth of Islaam and the falsehood of Judaism. The Jews will never stop adding fuel to the fire of war, nor will they ever stop plotting against us. Whenever the fire of one battle is extinguished, they light another.

 

The Jews fight in the name of religion with their Torah. They called their nation the state of ‘Israel’, which is another name for Ya’qoob Ibn Ibraaheem, who was one of the Prophets of Allaah. They summon their people from all over the world into the blessed land around Al-Aqsaa in the name of the Torah. They have even named the cities and provinces in that country with names taken from the Torah. The majority of Jewish politicians are secularists who give no weight to religion, but they know very well that their cause will never succeed unless they present it as a religious war under the banner of the Torah.

 

Therefore, knowing all this, should we fight them in the name of territory, soil, mountains, gardens and fruits? This is indeed feeble and twisted logic which can in no way counter a war launched under the banner of religion. What benefit did we ever get from nationalism in the past forty years? What effect did it have in countering the Jews?

 

Nationalism has been devastated and humiliated repeatedly in its war against the monkeys and pigs over the past forty years. The nationalists, who fought for the sake of land and olive fields, have strayed far away from Islaam and have refused to base this war against the Jews on Islamic principles. The Jews rush towards their religion searching for ways of unity, strength and victory, while the nationalists run away from their religion. They have kept their people pre-occupied with empty slogans which are of no benefit. This can never be a cause for victory against the Jews who are fighting a religious war.

 

The reality of our war against the Jews is that it is a religious war which cannot be conducted except according to the principles of Islaam which are clearly defined. Allaah says that which translates as: “Fight those who do not believe in Allaah or in the Last Day and who do not consider unlawful what Allaah and His Messenger have made unlawful and do not adopt the religion of truth [i.e., Islaam] from those who were given the scripture – [fight] until they give the jizyah (protection tax) willingly while they are humbled.” (At-Tawbah: 29).

 

This is a divine command; a militant, political and religious order addressing the nation of Jihaad and not those who are still fighting for the sake of olive fields, oranges and watermelons. It is an order to the Islamic nation, which lives for Jihaad. Unfortunately, today’s Muslim youth are pre-occupied with entertainment and frivolities; most of the men are occupied with trade and running after profit and material goods. This is why that cannot fulfil this divine command, nor can they fight, because they did not live the life of Jihaad.

 

When the crusaders conquered Al-Aqsaa a few hundred years ago during the time of Sultan Salaah Ad-Deen, who was a known Mujaahid, he swore not to have marital relations with his wife, nor wear perfume, until he rescued the first Qiblah for the Muslims. Salaah Ad-Deen indisputably fulfilled this oath and freed Al-Aqsaa after a few years when Allaah rescued it by the hands of him and his army. Allaah’s victory came due to the sincerity and righteousness of Salaah Ad-Deen, who had raised the banner of Jihaad for the sake of Allaah to rescue Al-Aqsaa.

 

The contemporary Muslims are spending most of their lives in idle pursuits, entertainment, trade and worldly gains, yet they expect to be supported by Allaah and be victorious. Forty years have passed and they are still waiting for this victory, they act as if success is something that has no pre-conditions and comes without making any effort.

 

No, rather, victory will never be attained unless certain conditions are fulfilled and it will not be granted to people who are frittering their lives away in idle pursuits and frivolities.

 

It is precisely because the Muslims have become so weak and abandoned raising the banner of Jihaad that the hypocrites and those Muslims who have sicknesses in their hearts began to propagate the slogans of peace with the monkeys and pigs. It is as if they actually believe that the Jews would put down their banner of war and stop their hatred, enmity and plotting against us!

 

Let us never forget that the Jews fought against the most honourable person and the master of the Prophets and Messengers; our Prophet Muhammad sallallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam, until the very last moment of his life, despite the fact that they knew for certain that he was the seal of the Prophets which the Torah and the Bible had mentioned. They also knew for sure that Allaah would grant him victory over them and all other disbelievers; but despite all of this, they still fought, betrayed and deceived him. Moreover, they actually plotted to assassinate him sallallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam and never lowered the banner of war against him.

 

During the worst and most difficult times of times for the Prophet sallallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam, at the battle of the trench, while there were armies surrounding Madeenah, the Jews plotted to kill the Prophet sallallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam and his companions from within Madeenah. The companions, may Allah be pleased with them, were having a terrible experience during this battle, yet the Jews of Banu Quraydhah (who were one of the Jewish tribes of Madeenah), at this most critical of times, broke the pledge of non-aggression and mutual defence which they given to the Prophet sallallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam.

 

The Jews intimidated the Muslims, which added to their sense of fear and danger of being in Madeenah. Their families were at great risk and had it not been for the mercy of Allaah, the Jews of Banu Quraydhah would have started another front in the war against the Muslims from within, just when the Muslims were at their most vulnerable.

 

Allaah rendered the Jews plans as futile as well as those of the confederate tribes who had surrounded Madeenah. He sent down His angels who cast terror into the hearts of the confederates and they withdrew, leaving the Jews of Banu Quraydhah alone with no support.

 

When the battle was over, the Muslim army and the Prophet sallallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam went back to their homes. He sallallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam then took off his armour and began to have a wash when the angel Jibreel, peace be upon him, came to him and said: “O Messenger of Allaah! You have taken off your armour, but I swear by Allaah that the angels have not yet put down their weapons, go to them” (and he pointed in the direction of Banu Quraydhah). Thereupon, the Prophet sallallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam instructed an envoy to command the Muslim army to go to attack Banu Quraydhah by proclaiming: “None of you should pray ‘Asr until they are within the territory of Banu Quraydhah.” After this, the Messenger of Allaah sallallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam set out with his army of believers who numbered close to three-thousand mujaahideen.

 

Banu Quraydhah were surrounded and blockaded for more than twenty nights until they offered to surrender on the condition that Sa’d Ibn Mu’aadh, may Allaah be pleased with him, would act as an arbiter in their case. They asked for this because he, may Allaah be pleased with him, was from the tribe of Aws who were their allies before Islaam and therefore they hoped that he would give a biased judgement in their favour. Also, they refused the Prophet sallallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam as a judge because they where afraid of the consequences of his judgement.

 

So the Prophet sallallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam sent for Sa’d, who was injured during the battle and therefore had to be carried. The judgement of Sa’d was that all their men should be beheaded, their properties be seized and distributed among the Muslims and that their women and offspring be held captive. Thereupon, the Messenger of Allaah exclaimed:Allaahu Akbar! O Sa’d! You have judged by the command of Allaah.”

 

Indeed, this is the judgment of Allaah with regard to the Jews who are the people of betrayal, deception, evil and corruption; the people who exhibited these repugnant characteristics even with the most honourable of the creations of Allaah; His Prophets and Messengers.

 

Knowing all this, do we really believe that the Jews would give up their evil habits of deception and betrayal and make peace with the contemporary Muslims; who have become indolent and indifferent to their religion and are only concerned with entertainment and trade? Are we so ignorant and that we would believe that the Jews would give in to those who are still fighting for the sake of territory under the banner of olives and oranges?

 

So I advise you all to fear Allaah; He says that which translates as: “And to Allaah belongs whatever is in the heavens and whatever is on the earth. And We have instructed those who were given the scripture before you and yourselves to fear Allaah. But if you disbelieve – then to Allaah belongs whatever is in the heavens and whatever is on the earth. And ever is Allaah Free of need and Praiseworthy. And to Allaah belongs whatever is in the heavens and whatever is on the earth. And sufficient is Allaah as Disposer of affairs.” (An-Nisaa’: 131-132).
