The Woman’s Status In Christianity And Islam

This page was created to compare a woman’s status as seen in Christianity and Islam. 

The sources are mainly the Bible, Quran, and the teachings of Prophet Mohammed.

The First Woman / Eve

Christianity (Bible)

"When the woman (Eve) saw that the fruit of the tree was good for food and pleasing to the eye, and also desirable for gaining wisdom, she took some and ate it. She also gave some to her husband (Adam), who was with her, and he ate it…Then the man (Adam) and his wife heard the sound of the Lord God as he was walking in the garden in the cool of the day, and they hid from the Lord God among the trees of the garden. But the Lord God called to the man, "Where are you?" He (Adam) answered, "I heard you in the garden, and I was afraid because I was naked; so I hid." And he (God)  said, "Who told you that you were naked? Have you eaten from the tree that I commanded you not to eat from?" The man said, "The woman (Eve) you put here with me-she gave me some fruit from the tree, and I ate it." Then the Lord God said to the woman, "What is this you have done?" The woman said, "The serpent deceived me, and I ate." To the woman he (God) said, "I will greatly increase your pains in childbearing; with pain you will give birth to children. Your desire will be for your husband, and he will rule over you.” To Adam he (God) said, “Because you listen to your wife and ate from the tree about which I commanded you, ‘You must not eat of it,’ “Cursed is the ground because of you; through painful toil you will eat of it all the days of your life.” Genesis 3:6-17

Islam (Quran)

(God said):”O Adam! You and your wife dwell in the Garden, and enjoy (its good things) as you wish: but do not approach this tree, or you run into harm and transgression.” “Then began Satan to whisper suggestions to them (Adam and Eve), bringing openly before their minds all their shame that was hidden from them (before): he (Satan) said: “Your Lord only forbade you this tree, lest you should become angels or such beings as live for ever.” “And he (Satan) swore to them both, that he was their sincere adviser.” “So by deceit he brought about their (Adam and Eve) fall: when they tasted of the tree, their shame became manifest to them, and they began to sew together the leaves of the Garden over their bodies. And their Lord called to them: “Did I not forbid you that tree, and tell you that Satan was an avowed enemy to you?” “They said: “Our Lord! We have wronged our own souls: if You do not forgive us and do not bestow upon us Your Mercy, we shall certainly be lost” Quran 7:19-23

Female Gender vs. Male Gender

"…if a woman have conceived seed, and born a man child: then she shall be unclean seven days…but if she bear a maid child, then she shall be unclean two weeks…" Leviticus 12:2-5

"To Allah belongs the dominion of the heavens and the earth. He creates what He wills. He bestows female children to whomever He wills and bestows male children to whomever He wills. Quran 42:49

  “He who is involved in bringing up daughters, and accords benevolent treatment towards them, they will be protection for him against Hell-Fire.” Prophet Mohammed (SAW)

The Female Spiritual Essence

"I find more bitter than death the woman who is a snare, whose heart is a trap and whose hands are chains. The man who pleases God will escape her, but the sinner she will ensnare." "Look," says the Teacher, "this is what I have discovered: "Adding one thing to another to discover the scheme of things-while I was still searching but not finding- I found one upright man among a thousand, but not one upright woman among them all." Ecclesiastes 7:26-28

"And Allah sets forth, as an example to those who believe, the wife of Pharaoh: behold she said: ‘O my Lord! build for me, in nearness to You, a mansion in the Garden, and save me from Pharaoh and his doings, and save me from those that do wrong," "And Mary the daughter of Imran, who guarded her chastity; and We breathed into (her body) of Our spirit; and she testified to the truth of the words of her Lord and of His Revelations, and was one of the devout (servants)." Quran 66:11-2

"Heaven is at the feet of the mothers." Prophet Mohammed (SAW)

Menses

"When a woman has her regular flow of blood, the impurity of her monthly period will last seven days, and anyone who touches her will be unclean till evening. anything she lies on during her period will be unclean, and anything she sits on will be unclean. Whoever touches her bed must wash his clothes and bathe with water, and he will be unclean till evening. Whoever touches anything she sits on must wash his clothes and bathe with water, and he will be unclean till evening. Whether it is the bed or anything she was sitting on, when anyone touches it, he will be unclean till evening." Leviticus 15:19-23

Ali asked the Prophet Mohammed if when a man and a woman make love then their clothes stick to them from the sweat of their bodies, or if when a woman has her period her clothes stick to her body, are the clothes considered unclean? 

The Prophet replied: “No, the uncleanness is only in the semen and the blood.” Prophet Mohammed (SAW)

Sexual Relation During Her Menses

"Do not approach a woman to have sexual relations during the uncleanness of her monthly period." Leviticus 18:19

"They ask you concerning women’s courses (period). Say: They are a hurt and a pollution: so keep away (of making love) from women in their courses, and do not approach them until they are clean…" Quran 2:222

A Woman’s Right to Education

"let your women keep silence in the churches: for it is not permitted unto them to speak; but they are commanded to be under obedience, as also saith the law, and if they will learn anything, let them ask their husbands at home: for it is a shame for woman to speak in the church." 1Corinthians 14:34-35

Seeking knowledge is obligatory on every Muslim man and Muslim woman. Prophet Mohammed (SAW)

"From what is left by parents and those nearest related there is a share for men and a share for women, whether the property be small or large, -a determinate share." Quran 4:7

Dressing Modesty / Head Covering

Every man who prays or prophesies with his head covered dishonors his head. And every woman who prays or prophesies with her head uncovered dishonors her head…If a woman does not cover her head, she should have her hair cut off; and if it is a disgrace for a woman to have her hair cut or shaved off, she should cover her head" 1 Corrinthians 11:3-6

"I also want women to dress modestly, with decency and propriety, not with braided hair or gold or pearls or expensive clothes, but with good deeds, appropriate for women who profess to worship God" 1 Timothy 2:9-10

"O Prophet! Tell your wives and daughters, and the believing women, that they should cast their outer garments over their persons (when abroad): that is most convenient, that they should be known (as such) and not molested. And Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful." Quran 33:59 

…they (believing women) should not display their beauty and ornaments except what (must ordinarily) appear thereof; that they should draw their veils over their bosoms and not display their beauty except to their husbands, their fathers, their husbands’ fathers, their sons, their husbands’ sons, their brothers or their brothers’ sons, or their sisters’ sons, or their women…or small children who have no sense of the shame of sex…” Quran 24:31

Polygamy

"We Do Not Need Your Tears Here!"


Safar 23, 1433 A.H, Wednesday, January 18, 2012

Ahmad related that Rasul Allah صلى الله عليه وسلم said:

"There will always be a group from my Ummah triumphant upon the truth, victorious over their enemies, there will be no harm from those who oppose them and they will not be harmed until the order of Allah comes and they will be like that (triumphant).

The Sahabahs asked, “O RasulAllah, where are they?” He said, “In Baytul-Maqdis and the precincts of Baytul-Maqdis.””

“Dont Cry, The Mujahideen Said” - Mohd. Tahir Abd. Rahman

The meeting with the Palestinian fighters twitched my heart. There are those with maimed hands, missing legs and crippled limbs. We were so touched that we shed our tears. But the Mujahideen right away said: “Don’t cry.

“We do not need your tears here. What’s important is your do’a so that we will remain strong here to keep on fighting for your masjid.

“Send our salam to the people of Malaysia. Please believe in this struggle so that we can together defend the rights of the Islamic ummah.”

Those Mujahideen smiled. We were amazed by the richness of their spirit. They do not mind, they are ready to sacrifice their lives anytime for the sake of defending the rights of the Muslims. Ouch! I feel so tiny when compared to the spirit of their jihad.

Not only the adults, even the small children there have a big ambition. Just ask those children, what do they want to be when they grow up?

Their answer is, we want to be Mujahids! Their enthusiasm and the educations that had been fed in them are so intense. I still remember, while organizing an iftar program in a masjid there, at that time the noises coming from the Palestinian children, who were so cheerfully playing, could be heard. However, as soon as the azan reverberated and the time for solat began, not even a drop of sound was heard from the mouths of those children until we finished performing the taraweeh.

All those children were orderly in their respective saf (row), even the four year old little ones did not dare to make a sound. They do not need to be monitored, but they already know that when the prayer time comes, it is a time that must be respected and where you cannot make a noise.

It ticked in my heart to say, if in Malaysia I would not fell this atmosphere. Normally, during the taraweeh prayer in the masjid, it is surely accompanied by the noisy sounds of children playing outside the masjid. Not to mention those who play firecrackers which could startle the imam.

In Gaza, where ever we go, the children would come to crowd around us. They stretched out their hands. Not to beg, but just to shake our hands. Their faces were cheerful when seeing their brothers from other places coming to visit them.

You don’t need to give out money. Those kids would not accept it. You would not find the term ‘beggar’ here. They are not taught to beg even though life is hard, on the contrary they are nurtured so as to always share whatever they have with others.

If someone gets a loaf of bread, then he too would share it with his other friends. Even if only a little piece of the bread would remain for him, he would not mind. What’s important is that the received rizq is shared together. That’s one of their manifestations there, a thing that I could not see in our country.

Yes, Gaza needs our help, but do you know that at the same time the population there can collect donations as well to be given to our needy brothers in Somalia? Subhanallah.. even though they are in hardship, but they still give contributions, although a little, because they believe, our brothers in Somalia are more in hardship and need to be helped as well. Do we here possess this noble character as them?

Like one of the meanings in surah At-Tawbah which says: “Indeed, Allah purchases the body and soul of those who fight in Allah’s cause.”

These are the people of Palestine. They do not cry when they lose a leg or hand, they are not afraid to go to the battlefield. Because they say, Allah has bought their body limbs. Therefore, they don’t mind losing them. Can we afford to be like them?

“Two Children Of Ummu Ahmad Shaheed” - Noorhasyimah Ismail

The woman’s name is Ummu Ahmad. In her smile the woman said, she has lost two of her sons who had been shaheed in the battlefield. I asked, how could she be that calm after losing her beloved children? She did not answer the question but instead advised, “Protect the religion, indeed the Jews are our enemies.” And if possible that woman said, she wanted to be pregnant again so that she could continue to give birth to Mujahideen.

Then I remembered when we visited a house. The house was so small and had no room. The roof was only made from plastic materials weighted with stone in every corner to stop the plastic roof from being blown by the wind.

It is in the narrow house that a husband and wife live, along with nine children and their in-laws. It is in that space that they gather, sleep and cook. They are burdened with poverty but strangely, their faces are always laughing cheerfully while recounting how they undergo the routines of life. There is no look of sadness, no complaint, let alone to be grim. If in our place, are we able to tell the difficulties of our lives in the state of smiling and laughing like that?

Next, we met with another woman. She has also lost a son who was shaheed for the sake of the Islamic struggle. The story goes that, during the early stage after she lost her son, she always cried remembering her deceased son. But one day, she dreamed of being visited by that of her son. He said, “Ummi, I am now in Paradise.”

The dream was like a message so that she would not cry over the death of her son again. Only then the woman realized that there is no need to cry again. Instead, she is proud because her son has become a dweller of Paradise.

This is the story of another family that we met. A man was telling the story about his younger brother. He said that his brother whose name was Muhammad went to the battlefield only 13 days after he got married. Before going out of the house, Muhammad said to the wife whom he just married: “I will go and fight, indeed I marry you because I wanted to complete my Islam.” And after that Muhammad departed as a Palestinian Mujahideen, wearing his wedding shoes.

Muhammad was martyred in the fight. And after the expiry of the idah, his brother married Muhammad’s widow, who was his sister in law before.

This is our son, who we named Muhammad, in commemoration of the name of my younger brother who had been killed while conducting jihad in Allah’s cause,” he said while holding on his laps a cute little boy, aged around 2 years.

Meanwhile, the mother of the two brothers took out a shirt of his late son. She kissed it and then she cried. Then her son right away hugged the mother and said: “Be proud mother, indeed Muhammad is waiting for us in Paradise!” We, who listened to their story also shed our tears, it’s akin to a drama. But that is the truth.

I also remember the story of a teenage girl. She is still 16 years old but is already drenched in sweats working as a ‘fisherwoman’ at the sea of Gaza to provide for her family. Her father has been sick and cannot afford to work anymore. While her siblings are many and still young.

Every day, the teenager would go to the sea by rowing a small boat to catch fish. Just imagine, in that young age, she already has to the breadwinner of the family and not the least she is daunted to ford the vast sea alone.

And when we asked what assistance would she like to lighten the burden of her whole family, it’s not money or food that was asked by the girl. Instead, she only wants a small motorboat which can help ease herself in seeking the rizq (sustenance) in the vast sea.

Rowing the boat takes a long time. It suffices if there is a boat with an engine,” she said. Indeed, it really touches our hearts us to see her. As a woman, I am very impressed with the women in Palestine. They lost their husbands, the lost their children and they are burdened with poverty. But they are strong, determined, resilient and the most important, they never want to beg.

They do not raise their children with the feeling of sadness and deprivation. Instead they always train their children to be grateful. No matter how difficult their lives are, they would remind their children to be grateful because there are others who are less fortunate than them.

That’s one of the ways the mothers produce the characters of a fighter in the selves of the children since a young age. The struggle to them is not to kill, but to train the toughness of the self so that they could be strong in countering the enemies.

Their emotions and psychology are trained to be fearless or to not cry when attacked, but to continue fighting even armed with only a stone for the sake of defending the rights of Muslims.

Due to that, it is no surprise why there are a lot of hafiz and hafizah born in the land of Palestine. And it is no surprise too why the Jews are still failing to conquer Gaza, though they have been trying for decades. The women there are very strong, able to give birth to a lot of Mujahideen.

On average, every family have eight children or more than that. May be we imagine that with such a number of children, how are their lives going to be. On the contrary, despite the deprived life, all those children have already been independent since a young age, they know their roles and responsibilities with each other.

The children are still sent to school even though many of the school buildings have been damaged and full of bullet marks. In fact, children with disabilities are also sent to school because knowledge to them is very important. So, it is no surprise when we met many disabled and mute children capable of sounding the recitation of the Qur’an.

Yes admittedly the Jews should be feeling confused, it has already been decades that they are bombing Palestine, it never reduces. Instead, the population of Palestine are increasing because when they killed a Palestinian who was shaheed, the replacement would be born.

Even though the women there lose their children, they always want to give birth again because they know, it is one of the favours that Allah gives to them to give birth to fighters who would conduct jihad in His cause. Subhanallah….

“The Bombings Are Music!” - Muhammad Munawer Ismail

Previously, when the Zionist regime was controlling Gaza, it was indeed difficult to dream of setting foot there. However, since Israel pulled out their military, the chances of the NGO’s to come to Gaza to channel aids, started to open up. Due to that, when selected to go to Gaza, I was really grateful to Allah. Yes, I really wish to see the land which is said to be full of blessings. 

One day before departing to Gaza, we received the news that Gaza had just been bombed by the enemies. More or less, the feeling of fear and worry did conjure up. Strangely, once we entered Gaza the feeling of fear and anxiety went away just like that. In fact, we did not think of death anymore or maybe got shot by the enemy while we were there. We seemed to have forgotten that Gaza is a land that is always rained with bombs. True indeed, the land of Palestine is filled with barakah.

Even though the Israeli troops are not seen in the streets anymore, but almost every day we could still hear the sounds of bombing from the air, carried out by the Zionists Jews, but not in the slightest were we afraid. In fact, when asking the people there, the sounds of bombing are as if a “music” in their lives. As if it is not complete if the “music” is not heard.

I remember when passing through a street where on its left was a former settlement of the Jews which had been abandoned. The land there was all dried up, no life, it was like a dead plain.

On the other hand, on our right was the settlement of the Palestinians. The area is very fertile, and all the eyes see are greens with date trees producing abundant fruits. 

And again, when we visited the site of the fish pond farm, we were surprised when we saw that they are able to rear tilapia fish in sea water, whereas it is in the category of a freshwater fish. In fact, the fishes farmed there could breed easily into large quantities, that they are always enough to be supplied to the poor.

The same goes with the project on cattle farming. The quantity of milk produced by the cattles is so plentiful, it exceeds the normal level usually produced by other cattles all over the world, that they are able to produce thousands of liters per day to be distributed to the population of Gaza.

Also look at the waters of the Gaza sea which is controlled by the Jews. The fishermen are only allowed to go no further than three nautical miles. If we are to follow logic, there would be not much fish in such a small range of expanse. But strangely, those fishermen still find their catch. Thus how blessed the land of Gaza is.

Even though the Zionists are carrying out various blockades on Gaza, akin to being the largest ‘prison’ in the world, our brothers there do not complain. They will keep trying to find sustenance. Whatever they work on will easily bring on yields. If it’s animal farming, the livestock will easily breed. If it’s vegetable growing, the vegetable will grow fertile. 

Another thing, the people of Gaza are very amanah (trustworthy). Seems different from our people here. One of the aids granted is the scheme of the appropriation of micro credits without deposit. They are given loans of a sum of money to be used as a capital, so that they can do something to generate the family income.

After earning enough to recover the loan, they themselves came to pay it. There is no need to be reminded, no need to be looked for, but they remember their debts. There is no such term as ‘running away from debt’ like our people here. They know, there are other people who again need the money they have borrowed. Can we follow the pure values practiced by them?

NOTE: Mohd. Tahir, Noorhasyimah and Muhammad Munawer are amongst the volunteers of Aqsa Syarif Malaysia who were involved in making the mission A2GA to Gaza successful in August 2011.

Their objective of going there was to channel the contributions of the people of Malaysia, besides to outline the various projects which would help to generate the economy of the population of Palestine, such as the fish farming project, cattle farming, bread factory and many others.

To those who wish to give contributions for Gaza, they can contact the number of Aqsa Syarif Malaysia (60-03-87334636) or surf the website (www.aqsasyarif.org.my).

Reward of Upbringing two Daughters



In the days when it was a custom to cherish the birth of male children and to bury the female children alive because of shame and poverty.
The Prophet (Sallallahu ‘Alaihi wasallam) came with the msg of Islam and has uplifted the women and gave the women her freedom back and have given the women her equal rights. The Messenger (Sallallahu ‘Alaihi wasallam) has said:

"Whoever looks after two girls till they reach maturity, he and I will enter Paradise together like these two (fingers).

[Muslim and At- Tirmidhi]

#This is for the daughters, and not for the sons, which means Islam cherishes and respects women more! Subhanallah!
Then who says islam degrades Women ?

The Prophet (Salalaho Alayhi WaSallam) one day said to Hazrat Ali (ra): Ali Do these five things before going to bed at night: 1. Give 4000 Dinaars in Sadaqa and then sleep 2. Read one complete Quran and then sleep 3. Pay the price for Janna’h and then sleep 4. Make two people happy with each other when they are upset and then sleep 5. Do one hajj and then sleep Hazrat Ali (ra) said, Ya Rasulallah (Salalaho Alayhi WaSallam)! This looks impossible, how will Ibe able to do it? Then the prophet (Salalaho Alayhi WaSallam) replied: 4 times reading surah Fatiha is equals to four thousand Dinaars giving in Sadaqa. 3 times reading surah Ikhlas (Qul hu Allahu Ahad) is equals to one complete Quran. 3 times reading any durood shareef (Shortest: SallAllaho Alaihi Wa Salam) isthe price of jannat. 10 times Astagfirullah (or any istighfar)is equals to making two unhappy people happy with each other. 4 times third Kalima is equal to performing one Hajj. After this Hazrat Ali (ra) said, Ya Rasulallah (s.a.w)! Now I will do all these before going to bed. SubhanAllah!! ♥ How Many of u will do d same ????????? ~Kindly Share ~

“Allah does not forbid you to be kind and equitable to those who have neither fought against your faith nor driven you out of your homes. In fact Allah loves the equitable.”

Qur’an 60:8

Naturei Karta, Good Jews? JAKARTA – Some Muslims think that there are good Jews, usually attributed to the Naturei Karta, a group of anti-Zionist orthodox Jews. The anti-Zionist attitude of Naturei Karta in fact had made members of Naturei Karta shot by Israeli forces. Rizki Ridyasmara, an expert in Zionism, rejected if it is said that there are good Jews, because according to him, there is not much difference between the Zionist Jews and the non-Zionist Jews.

“The Zionist Jews and the non-Zionist Jews are equally hostile to Islam, the Muslims all these while have been fooled,” Rizki told arrahmah.com amid the “Unveiling The Misguidance of Shiah” Seminar at Masjid Baitul Karim, Tanah Abang, Jakarta, Sunday (5/2).

The Naturei Karta’s difference with the Zionist Jews, according the Rizki, only lies in the belief in welcoming the arrival of the Messiah into the world, in the framework of leading the Jewish nation, and the establishment of, for the third time, the Temple of Solomon, which had been destroyed twice, by Nebuchadnezzar and the Roman Emperor. However, in the attitude of being anti-Muslims they are just the same.

“If the Zionist Jews believe that before the coming of the Messiah, they must first build the Temple of Solomon, then the Naturei Karta believe that the temple must be established with the Messiah after has come into the world” declares this author of conspiracy book.

What is more, he asked the Muslims to judge things by the Qur’an and Sunnah. Especially in addressing the Jews, because according to him there is no differentiation of the Jews, who are Zionist and who are Non-Zionist.

“Nothing in the Qur’an about good Jews, Wa lan tardha ankal Yahudu walan nasara hatta tattabi’a milatahum. That’s all,” he said citing the Qur’an.

To build the third Temple of Solomon, the Jews need to destroy and tear down Masjid Al-Aqsa and construct the Temple of Solomon on top of its ruins, according to him the Naturei Karta and Zionist Jews, have the same conviction in destroying Al-Aqsa. “They are both using the Talmud, so they are the same in addressing Al-Aqsa,” Rizki exposed.

Touching on the intimacy of the Naturei Karta, the Orthodox Jews who have been warmly welcomed by Ahmadinejad, with Iran, Rizki added that there is bizarreness with the Shiahs of Iran. “According to the words of my friend who have attended university in Tehran, there is no Sunni masjid there, but there are 40 Synagogues in Teheran,” he concluded.

Reasons Why The Muslims Of Pattani Rise Up Against Siam (Thailand) 1- Why do the people of Pattani rise up to fight against Siam (Kingdom of Thailand)? It’s because of the demands of human instinct to do so, for the arrival of Siam to Pattani is Haram (illegitimate), 

Because the State of Siam was based on regional EXPANSION, or the love of regional expansion; due to that in 1786 AD Siam carried out actions of intrusion against the State of Pattani. And then Pattani fell into the hand of Siam, since that defeat Pattani has been colonized, oppressed, the human rights seized, the people ill-treated, enslaved, burned alive, submerged under water, buried alive, captured as prisoner of wars, becoming forced labours and slaves, imprisoned and banished.

2- The Basis of The Pattani Independence Movement 

: Pattani Daral Harbi : for being invaded by the kafir Siamese, war in the country of Daral Harbi is fardhu ‘ain, this has been agreed by the entire ulama’s of Islam, the 4 Madzhabs say that: "Jihad for independence is fardu ‘ain for all of men and women when the country is intuded, invaded, oppressed and ill-treated." 

: The UN Charter has set that for every colonized nations, it has the rights to determine its own destiny, as well as improve the recognition of the human rights and foundation of freedom for everyone, thus the national independence movement was born all over the world, in Asia, in Africa and Latin America .

: Based on the above subjects, the Muslims of Pattani rise up to perform the obligation of liberating the occupied motherland and the oppressed society from the accursed colonizers, hence the Pattani independence movement is a movement that is made fardhu (obligated) to all Muslim Malays of Pattani.

: If there is anyone from among the Muslim Malays of Pattani who conspires and supports the invader nation of Siam, as well as giving recognition to the king of Siam and his queen as a father and mother and can afford to sincerely claim that he is Thai, of Thai descent and Thai in nationality, then this person is RADDAH (murtad), rebellious to the religion, nation and homeland.

3– The Ruling of Jihad according to Islamic Shari’ah : 

: In the war between the Daral Islam State and the Daral Kuffar State, so all the wills of Abu Bakar al-siddiq to Commander Usamah and his forces apply; i.e. his order to not kill children, old people, the females, monks, to not cut down crop trees, burn houses, kill livestocks, torture prisoners of war and mutilate corpses.

4– The Perspective of the World On The Pattani Independence Movement

: The Siamese intruded, invaded, oppressed, murdered, burned alive and buried alive, as well as submerged alive the people of Pattani, banished them far out of the country like animals (all these were done by Pukong Sharot against the people of Bacok and Yingo district, also by Pukong Sampech against the people of Saiburi district) but they are on the right and just side. On the other hand, if the people of Pattani are doing the same thing against those intruder people of Siam, they will always be heralded as terrorists, brutal and cruel, by the reporters and media in general??!

: The Siamese deploy their troops and enough war equipments into the land of Pattani, which aims at fighting the people of Pattani, killing, torturing and capturing and imprisoning them, and they are considered as right and just. But when the people of Pattani conducted reactions and attacks in the land of Siam, they are considered as criminals and terrorists.

: The Siamese have killed a lot of Muslim religious teachers of Pattani and imprisoned them for no crime, and all those are considered as right and just?! But why when the people of Pattani retaliated in almost similar way with the atrocities they have committed, it is always considered as savage, evil and cruel.

”Allah sent us so that we eject people whom He wants from servitude of slaves to servitude to Allah alone”

Al-Qaeda as the biggest jihad movement and the fastest in terms of the growth of its cadres all over the world, has astounded the Western world, as well as the Eastern. The pros and cons that coloured their journey, are answered with real deeds and results that could be deemed as impressive, in the goal to restore the glory of the Islamic ummah, which has long suffered an apparent brain dead.

In defending the oppressed ummah, Al-Qaeda is not selective, the most noticeable example is the call of one of Al-Qaeda leaders in Yemen, Sheikh Nasser Al-Wahaysi who commanded the dispatch of a battalion of Al-Qaeda fighters, to combat the rebel Houthi Shiite who have attacked the headquarters of the Salafy Group in Dammaj.

Whereas, the Salafy Group are the hardcore opponents, and they label the fighters of Al-Qaeda as Khawarij and other names not suitable to be uttered against a brother. However, for Al-Qaeda it is not something that would stop them from helping their oppressed brothers, though hostile to their cause. It is this outlook that shows the maturity in struggling, and manhood sees the reality that Al-Qaeda exists not to defend a group, or to raise high the banner of a group, but they are purely conducting jihad to make the kalimah of Allah supreme.

In fact, even in the process of the revolution in the Middle-East, Al-Qaeda pretty much have a share in overthrowing the ruling regimes. Releases of supports from Al-Qaeda leaders for the revolution in Egypt, Syria and Libya, were widely distributed in the media read by millions of people around the world, in fact the elements of Al-Qaeda were also present in the thick of battle to topple down the regimes of the Arab dictators.

A clear example is the ousting of dictator Gaddafi which was supported by Abu Yahya al-Libi, this amir of A-Qaeda in Libya had been urging the Muslims in his country to overthrow the regime of Muammar Gaddafi and establish an Islamic government, the UmmaNews reported quoting the Associated Press (15/3/2011).

Depiction Of Al-Qaeda’s Jihad

The Jihad and struggle for the liberation of the ummah done by Al-Qaeda today, was as described by Ash-Shaheed Sayyid Qutb in his very phenomenal work, Tafseer Fi Dzilali al-Qur’an. Sayyid Qutb said: “None of them said, when asked why they fought: “We went out to defend our country from the threat of the enemy!” or “We went out to drive out our Persian and Roman enemies” or “We went out to expand our territory and obtain a lot of spoils.”

They said, “Allah sent us so that we eject the people whom He wants from the servitude of slaves to the servitude to Allah alone. From the narrowness of the dunya toward His spaciousness. From the injustices of other religions, toward the justice of the religion of Islam. Thus He has sent His Messenger with a religion for His creatures. Whosoever welcome us, we would receive them well, we would leave them alone, we would never disturb their land. Whosoever oppose us, we would kill until we are martyred and enter the paradise or we would achieve a dazzling victory.”

If they are truly conducting jihad to raise high the kalimah of Allah, it’s just proper that the people of understanding rise up and defend the honor of the Muslims and unite with the Thaifah Al-Mansurah in establishing the Dien of which none is higher than it.

"Permission [to fight] has been given to those who are being fought, because they were wronged. And indeed, Allah is competent to give them victory”.
(The Holy Quran, Surah 22. “The Pilgrimage”, verse 39)
