A Condemnation of the Ottawa Terror Attack and an Advice to Canadian Muslims

on Thursday, 23 October 2014 17:11.

A Condemnation of the Ottawa Terror Attack and an Advice to Canadian Muslims

In the name of Allāh to whom belongs all praise, may He make good mention of and bestow peace upon His Messenger.

Yesterday's brazen attack on the Canadian parliament and the killing of an army reservist has caused a shockwave of anxiety and fear across the country. The lunacy and cowardice of the assailant and whoever may be associated with him is beyond words. Details are yet to emerge as to the background, motives and whether there was indeed a network behind the individual identified. This may become clearer in the coming days or like other many acts of terrorism, it may never become clear. Nonetheless, what has emerged is that a Muslim was involved. He was unsuccessful in his bid to storm the parliament building and was swiftly killed. Whether he was mentally ill or not, a practising Muslim or not, the outward reaction by many in society will be: Islam made him do it.

Being aware of all of this, it is important for Muslims who follow the Qur'ān and Sunnah upon the methodology of the pious predecessors to keep the following in mind: 

  1. Qadr Allāh wa mā’ shā’ fa`al - This fateful and evil act was decreed to pass by the Lord of all mankind. It is a trial for all those affected by it and will be a trial for Muslims in Canada at large.

  2. Do not dwell on reading media reports which often glamorise or chastise for the purpose of selling media. Do not dwell in debating and arguing in comments attached to stories. Do not rely solely on the media to tell you the truth and do not likewise turn to conspiracy theorists to reveal the truth. Simply get on with your life in a positive manner, seeking the pleasure of your Lord daily through righteous actions.

  3. At this time of increased stress and focus on Islam and Muslims, be proactive. Exemplify the good manners of Islam, show your neighbours, family, co-workers etc. the beautiful code of conduct that exemplifies Islamic manners and morals. Do not shy away and cower; do not be afraid to show your Islam at a time like this, if you do, then groups like ISIS (or any copycat groups) have succeeded in marginalising you in society. Likewise, anti-Islamic movements will be happy with your feeling of ostracisation. When 9/11 happened, we immediately took to the streets of Toronto, wearing identifiably Islamic garments and engaged fellow citizens about Islam, about terrorism, and about bin Ladin. The reaction was very positive; many people thanked us for simply being out there and explaining things. Even though we sought to clarify the reality of extremism and expected some harsh reactions, we generally didn't receive them. People approached us and said: We know Islam doesn't promote these things. One lady became tearful and said she felt sorry for what we would have go through (as Muslims) because of what some extremists may have done in NY. The point being that if you dwell in the gutters of tabloid media and debate with ignorant people who spew hatred towards Muslims on blogs or newspaper comment sections, it will absorb and waste your time. However, if you engage Canadians positively, face-to-face, at the local store, at work, at school etc., it will show them what it really means to be a Muslim. Inform them what our Prophet (sallallāhu ‘alayhi wa sallam) mentioned about a people who would appear - calling them "khārijites" (renegades), isolating themselves and terrorising society, and how they would depart from Islām. Teach them the central message of Tawhīd (pure monotheism) and you will likely find a very positive result in shā’ Allāh. 

    To duck your head, to move around in fear, to become shy about your Islam (as some did around 9/11) will only support the idea that Muslims are outsiders in Canadian society. If you do encounter ignorant comments or harshness, then reply to them with good manners. Even if a person won't desist in his harshness, others will see the behaviour of a Muslim in the face of oppression. Our Messenger, Muhammad (sallallāhu ‘alayhi wa sallam) was most patient in the face of personal attacks or insults.  Remember that our Prophet (sallallāhu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said: “There is nothing heavier in the Scales (on the Day of Judgement) than good character” [Jāmi’ at-Tirmithī (2002)]  

    Consider how vile a presentation of Islam groups like ISIS present. In reality, they are not a representation of us, their behaviour is in sharp contrast to manners of our prophet (sallallāhu ‘alayhi wa sallam), as Allāh has mentioned, “Verily in the Messenger of Allāh you have a fine role model” [Sūrah al-Ahzāh, 33:21].  The Prophet Muhammad (sallallāhu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said: “I have only been sent to complete upright moral character” [Musnad Ahmad (2/381]. So at a time like this, when Islam is being questioned in the hearts and minds of Canadians, even under difficult circumstances, it is an opportunity to show society the purity of tawhīd and the uprightness of the Islamic creed and how it produces an impeccable, upright character. Indeed those renegades who terrorize society only do so because of a corrupt underlying creed that is alien to Islām, its Book and its prophet.

    The Prophet Muhammad (sallallāhu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said: “I swear by Allāh, he does not believe! By Allāh, he does not believe! By Allāh, he does not believe!” They asked him, “O Messenger of Allāh! Who?!” He replied: “The one whose neighbour is not safe from his atrocities” [Sahīh al-Bukhārī (6016)]. In a similar narration, Abu Hurayrah (may Allāh be pleased with him), mentioned the wording in Sahīh Muslim (46): “Anyone whose neighbour is not safe from his atrocities shall not enter paradise.” The Prophet (sallallāhu ‘alayhi wa sallam) advised his beloved wife Umm Salamah, “(The one with) good manners gets the best of this life and the hereafter.”

    So it is an Islamic obligation, commanded by our Messenger (sallallāhu ‘alayhi wa sallam), to exemplify the rights of good behaviour with our neighbours and those in society at large. These are codes of conduct we live by. This is what Islam teaches us. These are the textual proofs and evidences that have eluded those misguided youths who have sought Islamic learning by watching YouTube extremist propaganda videos through the hours of the night and not by seeking it from the mouths of orthodox Scholars of Islām.

    Islam is a religion of fairness, justice and rights; a religion that provides safety and sanctity to society. Those who have sought to enact a jihadist version of Call of Duty on the streets of Ottawa are ignoramuses; misguided individuals who have strayed far away from the merits of Islam. Allāh mentions in the Qur’an the likes of those who kill innocent people: “It would be as if he killed the whole of mankind; and if anyone saved a life, it would be as if he saved the whole of mankind” (Sūrah al-Mā’idah, 5:32].

    These misguided individuals have distorted the texts of the Qur’ān and the Sunnah to fulfil a politicised objective that is foreign to Islām, and that is one of violent revolution, indiscriminate killing and terror. In turn, they harm themselves, they harm innocent people, and they bring about more damage upon the image of Islam than any think tank, conspiracist or disinformation agency could muster combined. 

    We recommend that our brothers and sisters pay attention to and distribute the following documents and sources. They will help you to understand these issues and to engage Canadians in a positive way:

Benefit: The Ruling on Wearing Pants that Fall Below the Ankles - Shakyh Ibn Baaz

on Sunday, 19 October 2014 00:08.

In the name of Allaah, ar-Rahmaan, ar-Raheem

From the greatest scholars of the Ummah in the last century was al-'Allaamah ash-Shakyh Abdul-'Azeez ibn 'Abdillaah Ibn Baaz rahimahullaah. His firmly-grounded knowledge of the religion, wisdom, and piety were characteristics that made him recognized by Muslims internationally. A collection of his rulings, al-Majmoo' al-Fataawaa, is an outstanding example of these aformentioned characeristics. The trend among people today, especially the youth, is to wear pants that fall below the ankles. Does our religion offer any guidance in this matter? Is there anything wrong with wearing pants like this? This question was posed to Shaykh Ibn Baz and he answered with narrations from the Messenger of Allaah sallallaahu 'alayhi wa sallam. Listen to this brief Q&A audio, presented by Moosaa Richardson, and remind your family and friends of the truth in this regard, may Allaah reward you.

Benefit: Knowledge Is Amanah

on Saturday, 11 October 2014 17:24.

In the Name of Allah, the Extremely Merciful, the Bestower of Mercy

Shaykh Ṣaliḥ b. al-Fawzān, may Allah preserve him, said:(1)

This knowledge is trust; (and certainly) not a property of yours that you amass and withhold from the people while they stand in need of it. So, it is your duty to convey it, to clarify it, and to call others to good.

The Most High says: «(And remember) when Allah took a covenant from those who were given the Scripture (Jews and Christians) to make it (the news of the coming of Prophet Muḥammad, may Allah raise his rank and grant him peace, and the religious knowledge) known and clear to mankind, and not to hide it(2)
