Responsibility - Muslim Prisoners: Anjem Choudary


By Anjem Choudary: “The Responsibility Towards Muslim Prisoners”


After praising Allah:

It is an honour to be addressing the subject of the aseer

-- our reference is the Quran and The Sunnah, upon the understanding of the Salaf

-- Allah will test us with our families, wives, children, lives, wealth

-- some of us will lose limbs or our own independence

-- our struggle is a continuation of those who came before us

-- do people think that they say they will be left alone, without being tested

-- we have no Khilafah today, we must rise against the taghoot

-- we have hostages of the struggle : the aseer

-- the pain and the injury is that we have to continue the struggle

-- and we do not forget what they stand for

Alif-Lam-Mim. Do people think that they will be left alone because they say: "We believe," and will not be tested. And We indeed tested those who were before them. And Allah will certainly make (it) known (the truth of) those who are true, and will certainly make (it) known (the falsehood of) those who are liars, (although Allah knows all that before putting them to test). Al Ankaboot 29:1-3

“I do not care how they kill me as long as I get martyred in the Cause of Allah as a Muslim. I received my death for Allaah’s sake. If Allaah so desires, He will bless, the amputated limbs of the torn body.” (Last Words of Khubayb Ibn Adee)

It is an obligation to release the Muslim prisoners

--One of the greatest obligations is to release the Muslim captives

Sheikh-ul-Islam Ibn Taymiyyah said (Al-Fatawa 28/635):

Freeing the prisoners is one of the greatest compulsory deeds and spending ransom money and other means towards that, is one of the greatest ways to come close to Allah.

Ibn Qudamah Al-Hanbali said (Al-Mughni 9/228):

It is obligatory to pay the ransom money for the Muslim prisoners, if it is possible.

It is narrated, in Spain (Andalusia) 196 H.

4,000 book in the library in Cordova: in France, they had 50!

An 18 year old girl was taken captive, and took her to the king of Granada

-- they raped her, she called for the governor:

-- the situation is the same as today: the governor heard the cries:

-- Hakm bin Hisham, he said we will destroy every city until we get her

-- he conquered 3 cities taking the booty

-- they didn’t even know the name of the woman: they asked about her at a city

-- they asked the king, he said he would never release her,

-- they offered all the booty from 3 cities, he said no over his dead body,

-- and it was over his dead body: they attacked and killed the king.. and took the girl

-- the wife of Hakm said he should marry the girl : the girl accepted ! Allahuakbar!

In Malta they captured a woman: this time we know her name: her name was Fatima

-- She called out, ‘Oh Mutasima’ - he heard her cries: he ordered to call the adhan

-- he told the people one woman had been captured, they must free her

--they went straight to the stronghold and fought there, on the best horses

--the Khalifa rode at the front: he took with him 70,000 soldiers

-- he told her on the Day of Judgment bear testimony that I freed you!

There was a tribe called Bani Thaqif:

-- they had a relationship with another tribe

-- the Rasool salah Allahu alahye wasalam said

-- take one man from the tribe they had relationship with (as a ransom)

-- they fed and clothed him

-- they treated him well: the man wanted to take Shahadah,

-- the Rasool said we will release you first then you can take Shahadah

-- a woman came to Baqi and asked him to help her to release his son from captivity

-- Baqi made dua, "oh Allah, free this woman’s son"

-- the son returned, he said: I was in the chains with all the other captive

-- and the chains fell from my feet

-- they collected us up together, and this happened again and again

-- they realised he must have a mother who was making dua for her son, so they freed him

What we can do for the aseer

1) help with money

2) make awareness of the aseer

-- money : raise awareness : ( you can say at least you did something ) : make dua :

3) make dua

Uemas are taken, they need us to voice out for them

-- when Ahmad ibn Hanbal was taken prisoner: his family came to him,

-- they asked him to do taqiyya (deceive):

-- he replied that he must speak the haqq, or others would not know the haqq

Ibn TAYMIYYAH :: What can my enemies do to me? I have in my breast both my heaven and my garden. If I travel they are with me, never leaving me. Imprisonment for me is a chance to be alone with my Lord. To be killed is martyrdom and to be exiled from my land is a spiritual journey.

-- there was a Mujrim, (criminal) : he said that he never compromised on his baatil

-- so how could Hanbal compromise on his Haqq?

3 things that will benefit you while your in your grave

1) knowledge you passed on

2) sadaqah you gave

3) pious children who make duaa for you

-- the crusaders came to look at the children in Andalusia

-- a boy was firing arrows and he missed one out of ten, the boy cried

-- because he missed one, the crusaders realised they could not defeat them

-- but when they returned some years later they saw the Muslims were arguing

-- and busying themselves with the dunya so then they knew this was time

-- to fight the Muslims: OH MUSLIMS ARE WE BUSY WITH THE DUNYA !!!???
