The one who ponders our current situation and the actions of the present-day tawāghīt in relation to the People of Truth from the Mujāhidīn will find a clear pharaohnic phenomenon that has been implanted in them, clearly evidenced in many aspects, some of which we will discuss in this article. For they have now spread and waged their offensive, and they have begun to wage war against the People of Truth under specific heraldries, and they have been able to excite for this campaign armies from their available soldiers – magicians, scholars, authors, journalists, and broadcasters – and with all of this they are unable to confront the Truth with proof, and they are unable to confront it with evidence nor debate live on air with those who oppose them. Rather, they only organize debates with those who follow their path and their steps on the several television channels which they own such as – The first extortion: Channel 1, The second extortion: Channel 2, The third extortion: Al-’Arabiyyah Channel, The fourth extortion: Al- Majd Channel, The fifth extortion: M.B.C. Channel, and tens of other channels – as well as radio stations and newspapers – Ash-Sharq Al-Awsat, ‘Ukāth, Al- Hayāt, Al-Watan, Ar-Riyādh, Al-Bilād, Al-Jazīrah…) and more from the numerous tools of the mass media, in addition to their scholars who stand on the same turf and carry out their tasks in the best manner by way of the pulpits, lectures, admonitions and tapes. I say: All of them combined are unable to have a true dialogue with the People of Truth based upon the true Shari’ah and knowledge based principles. They know this, and the answers to the questions of the free Mujāhidīn escape them, and they are intrinsic questions put forth after intense research in the Islāmic Shari’ah, and originally published on their sites on the web and elsewhere. And they have heard their releases and calls but have been unable to answer them with truth and neutrality because the hammer of the tawāghīt will strike them.

And from the questions that were put forth are the following:

# What is the ruling on the rulers that do not judge by what Allāh has revealed, and who have inactivated the implementation of the Hudūd and the Shar’ī?
# And what is the ruling on those who arbitrate to the laws of the tawāghīt instead of the Legislation of Allāh?
# And what is the ruling upon rulers who legislate their own rivaling laws beside the Legislation of Allāh, Ta’ālā, and attribute to themselves God-like characteristics and attributes?
# And what is the ruling upon the rulers who make the Harām Halāl and the Halāl Harām?
# And what is the ruling upon the rulers who wage war on Allāh and his Messenger and the Believers by way of different and varying techniques, some of which are through enticement and some of which are through terror?
# And what is the ruling upon the rulers who drive the people away from the Religion of Allāh, Ta’ālā, and from Pure Tawhīd and plot day and night in hope of these plots succeeding?
# And what is the ruling upon the rulers who hate what Allāh has sent down from the Religion, Tawhīd, and Jihād?
# And what is the ruling upon the rulers who mock the Religion of Allāh and its Āwliyā’?!
# And what is the ruling upon the rulers that bless ash-Shirk al-Akbar (major shirk), approve of it, do not change it and don’t allow for its change?
# And what is the ruling upon the rulers who entered down to their bones in alliance with the enemies of the Ummah from the Jews and the Christians; and are at their service and serve their interests and protect them?! Continue reading

33 Ways Of Developing Khushoo’ In Salaah (Prayer)

Salaah is the greatest of the practical pillars of Islam, and khushoo’ in prayer is required by sharee’ah. When Iblees, the enemy of Allaah, vowed to mislead and tempt the sons of Adam and said “Then I will come to them from before them and behind them, from their right and from their left…” [al-A’raaf 7:17, interpretation of the meaning], one of his most significant plots became to divert people from salaah by all possible means and to whisper to them during their prayer so as to deprive them of the joy of this worship and cause them to lose the reward for it. As khushoo’ will be the first thing to disappear from the earth, and we are living in the last times, the words of Hudhayfah (may Allaah be pleased with him) are particularly pertinent to us: “The first thing of your religion that you will lose is khushoo’, and the last thing that you will lose of your religion is salaah. There may be a person praying who has no goodness in him, and soon you will enter the mosque and not find anyone who has khushoo’.” (al-Madaarij, 1/521).

Because of what every person knows about himself, and because of the complaints that one hears from many people about waswaas (insinuating thoughts from Shaytaan) during the salaah and the loss of khushoo’, the need for some discussion of this matter is quite obvious. The following is a reminder to myself and to my Muslim brothers, and I ask Allaah to make it of benefit.

This book talks about on how to develop Khushoo in prayers, rulings on Khushoo, the means of developing Khushoo, knowing the advantages of Khushoo in prayers and etc. Continue reading
