Download

Rasoolillah saws said to release the prisoners in Bukhari:
--it is a command from ALLAH
--whatever the prophet said or did, wasn’t a matter of his own desires
--it was wahi ( part of the revelation )
--whatever the Rasul saws says is revelation
-- because of verse in Surah Najm

Whatever Rasul gives us, we take
--whatever he told us to refrain from, we must stay away from it
--obedience to the Messenger of the Rasool salah Allahu alayhe wasalam
--is obedience to Allah

All of these who faced prison, were in prison for speaking the Haqq

--Brother Abu Baraa wa in jail like many others brothers
--and shaykh because of the kalimah of haqq, the dawah

The Rasool doesn’t speak from his hawa (desires) Surah 53:3-4
Nor does he speak of (his own) desire. It is only a Revelation revealed. 53:3-4


--they were imprisoned because of their support for the ummah
--we are living in strange times, Muslims are behind bars
--hundreds of Muslims in Belmarsh and many other prisons in UK
--let alone USA, KSA, and other Muslim countries
--most of them are imprisoned without any charge whatsoever
--they never said they suspect them of crime :
--they just simply said "we do not like you"

Some are held behind bar called "detainees,"
--these prisoners have NO idea why they are locked up
--no one is there to look after their families
-- behind bars for years with no one to look after their families
--they will keep you as long as they can, they do as they please with you
--whatever the Rasul saws says is revelation
--because of verse in Surah Najm
--we are living in strange times, Muslims are behind bars

Nor does he speak of (his own) desire. It is only a Revelation revealed. 53:3-4

--hundreds of Muslims in Belmarsh and many other prisons in UK,
--let alone USA, KSA, and other Muslim countries
--most of them are imprisoned without any charge whatsoever
--they never said they suspect them of crime:
--they just simply said "we do not like you"
--we are the ones that conquer them, not vice versa
--we take their lands and their possessions, not the other way around
--we are a Ummah of JIHAD, the ummah of Muhammad saws

Even SISTERS are being locked up, they are separated from their babies

I have been supported with fear (cast into the hearts of my enemies) for a distance of one month’s travel; Narrated by al-Bukhaari (427) and Muslim (421)

--they dragged a pregnant woman from her bed!
--they separated a woman from her new born,
--she couldn’t even feed her baby: why? she is dangerous??
--some sisters are not even allowed to breastfeed their babies,
--Aafia Siddiqui is locked up and we are responsible for her
--it is not for us to sit back, the Muslim does not rest:
--when you hear that the Muslim is behind bars

The Hadith Rasool : RELEASE THE PRISONERS

Abu Dawud mentions the Hadith narrated by Abu Talha Al-Ansari and Jabir Bin Abdullah, that the Prophet Muhammad (SAW) said, “No man forsakes a Muslim when his rights are being violated or his honour is being belittled except that Allah will forsake him at a place in which he would love to have His help.


--to release ONE Muslim is better than all the wealth we possess
--Abu Hanifah said: to release the Muslim from captivity
--in the east or the west is FARDH (compulsory)
--we must release the prisoners, whether in east or west
--we are responsible for their release
--it’s my job, your job, not someone else’s!
--even if only one Muslim is free,
--he must strive to free all Muslims that are locked up
--to spend money to release the prisoners
--are among the greatest acts of Ibadah
--you can pay for the schools fee for the children of prisoners,
--you can buy grocery for their families
-- there are a lot of things you can do: write to them,
--raise money for bail : look after families
--if you help the prisoners, ALLAH will help you in your times of need
--do not get confused about how we can release the prisoners
--we understand that every duty we have we have a method to do it

Every hardship we face has a manhaj in the example of Rasoolillah saws

--take him as an Usuwa, do what he did, and do it the way he did it

Pray as you have seen me praying. (Sahih Bukhari Book #11, Hadith #604)

--the way we pray salah as he did, likewise,
--we must do for the prisoners what he did
--we pray how the prophet prayed : we follow the messenger of Allah:
--exactly : we pray the way he did, for the same reason

A man said I want to stay awake all night and not sleep, another said, I am going to fast and not break my fast , another said, I will not marry!

The Messenger of Allah came to them and said, 'Are you the ones who said such-and-such? By Allah, I am the one among you with the most fear and awareness of Allah, but I fast and break the fast, I pray and I sleep, and I marry women. Whoever disdains my sunnah is not with me.'" [Agreed upon]

--whoever leaves the sunnah, is not of the Rasoolillah saws
--we do everything in the same manner as
--the Rasool salah Allahu alayhe wasalam
--NOTHING ELSE IS GOOD ENOUGH!

ALLAH is the LORD, and HE legislate and HE knows what is good no matter what century we live in

Forbidden unto you (for food) are carrion and blood and swine-flesh, and that which hath been dedicated unto any other than Allah, and the strangled, and the dead through beating, and the dead through falling from a height, and that which hath been killed by (the goring of) horns, and the devoured of wild beasts, saving that which ye make lawful (by the death-stroke), and that which hath been immolated unto idols. And (forbidden is it) that ye swear by the divining arrows. This is an abomination. This day are those who disbelieve in despair of (ever harming) your religion; so fear them not, fear Me! This day have I perfected your religion for you and completed My favour unto you, and have chosen for you as religion AL-ISLAM. Whoso is forced by hunger, not by will, to sin: (for him) lo! Allah is Forgiving, Merciful. (3)

--we do not go and beg the kuffar to give us relief from our hardship
--we follow the manhaj of Rasoolillah saws to solve our problems
--shall we ask "Mr. Cameron Sir, can you stop the war
--can you change the law, please can I have some more"?
--no we cannot, there is only one manhaj : JIHAD
--ONLY one manhaj to free the occupation of Muslims lands
--is JIHAD FI SABILILLAH

The Prophet said, "A single endeavor (of fighting) in Allah's Cause in the forenoon or in the afternoon is better than the world and whatever is in it." Volume 4, Book 52, Number 50: Bukhari

THERE IS NO ESCAPE AND NO ONE CAN ARGUE AGAINST IT

-- the method of people coming to Islam, is giving dawah
-- not to trick the kuffar , but to tell them the TRUTH : NO interfaith!
-- we make dawah by speaking the haqq
-- we want to know how the Rasool released the prisoners from the kuffar
-- that’s the only will be able to do it
-- we will not write a petition : and beg the tagheet!
-- if someone does that who is BEHIND BARS:
-- then he is under duress, we cannot blame him
-- we resort to many ways that are the ways of the kuffar
-- but this is not the manhaj : we have the sunnah

3 WAYS TO FREE THE PRISONERS

-- besides the dua, and the other we do to help them..
-- we do not stop at du'a only but we must take action
-- you cannot make dua for children: when you are not married!

1. Release the Prisoners: by JIHAD fi sabee Illah

The Prophet said, "A single endeavor (of fighting) in Allah's Cause in the forenoon or in the afternoon is better than the world and whatever is in it." Volume 4, Book 52, Number 50: Bukhari

-- we make Jihad as this is the manhaj of Rasoolillah saws
-- to free the prisoners
-- offensive Jihad is to be made:
-- we must conquer their lands and free our prisoners
-- in the past, when a single woman was taken captive,
-- the ameer said he would take an entire city in her stead
-- when Mu’tasim heard one single Muslim woman
-- he didn’t write a letter, he asked what the strongest city of the Romans
-- then he went to conquer that city !

When a Muslimah called for help, the ameer would respond
--no matter the cost, be it money or their lives
--the ameer (Hakam bin Hisham) was asked
--to take wealth by the kaafir king but he said
--he would exchange all ghaneema in his hands for
--that one Muslimah that has been taken as captive

2. Swap the prisoners: one of ours for one of theirs
--it’s a sunnah of Rasoolillah saws, the Sahabah, and the Tabieen
-- what if they ask for 4 kufaar for one Muslim prisoner
--he said give them what they want ,
--some are held behind bar called "detainees"
--these prisoners have NO idea why they are locked up
--no one is there to look after their families
--behind bars for years with no one to look after their families
--they will keep you as long as they can, they do as they please with you
--whatever the Rasul saws says is revelation
--because of verse in Surah Najm
--the list of prisoners goes on and one in UK, USA, and around the world
--we are the ones that conquer them, not vice versa
--we take their lands and their possessions, not the other way around
--we are a Ummah of JIHAD, the ummah of Muhammad saws
--to spend money to release the prisoners
--is among the greatest acts of Ibadah

This day, those who disbelieved have given up all hope of your religion; so fear them not, but fear Me. This day, I have perfected your religion for you, completed My Favour upon you, and have chosen for you Islam as your religion. Surah Mai’da 5:3
Umar ibn Abdul Aziz said to give as many kaafir as they(kuffar) wanted, be it 1,2, 3,..etc...as many as they wanted, because a SINGLE Muslim is more beloved to him that all he had, and a Muslim is superior as Islam is superior to every other system


One Muslim is better than million kuffar
--Rasulallah saws exchanged prisoners and if he didn’t have prisoners,
--he took some in captivity

3. Pay ransom to free the captives
--we may even pay a million dollars to free them, we raise millions for masjid and decorate them (although haraam to decorate masjid ), millions for minarets, we have many masjid all over the UK, each masjid has its own race

When Adhan is called, it is not known which masjid called for salah,
--that is the extent to which we have spent money on masjid, but what about spending for the prisoners?

--is compulsory to spend EVERYTHING we have in terms if wealth to free the prisoners

--many of us go to Hajj, Umrah, and vacations and spend our money in vain but we neglect our obligations to our prisoners

Ibn Hazm: there is consensus of all the companions that if the only way we can release the prisoners is that we spend all the money collectively

We have to, it’s compulsory
--some believe Sunnah is only to grow a beard, wear a thobe, use the miswak, etc., but what about the sunnah of fighting Fi sabilillah to free the prisoners?

-- they follow the sunnah with regards to beard, even to the extent of breaking their own teeth: but when you tell them it is sunnah to go for jihad, they tell you haraam?

TAKBIR!

--what about the sunnah of prisoners exchange
--and spending wealth to free them?

ALLAHU AKBAR
ALLAHUAKBAR!

Their bail application. They are in need of ‘assurity’ (properties and businesses with equity) and ‘security’ (cash). Property deeds and statements are needed to assure the court that the equity exists insha’Allah.
As a guideline we are told to aim for at least a minimum of £50,000 GBP per prisoner plus assurity each. As you can imagine this is not within the families capacity and they have had no success by appealing locally. Please email ummsireen@live.com if you can put any assets forward and please remember them in your duaas insha’Allah.
