My JIHAD -Prohibition of Arrogance and Oppression

My Jihad is against the evil in the world, the evil in myself and around me, first and for most currently my jihad is to educate the ignorant about facts and truth.....this video represents that. One thing is for sure, Muslims are not willfully stupid and Alhamduliah for the sake of ALLAH we will STRUGGLE in his way, even if it means educating others.

By the way JIHAD MEANS STRUGGLE FOR GOD, GODS WILL! Not to struggle for genocide and racism and oppression but to struggle against them!


Prohibition of Arrogance and Oppression

Asalamu aleykum warahmatulahi wabarakatu
Bismilahi Rahmani Rahiim Alhamdulilahi Rabbil Alamiin Wasalatu wasalamu ala ashrafl mursalin nebiyuna wa habibuna Muhamad wa ala ahlihi wa ashabihi ajmaiin

Allah, the Exalted, says:

"So ascribe not purity to yourselves. He knows best him who fears Allah and keeps his duty to Him [i.e., those who are Al-Muttaqun (the pious)].'' (53:32)

"The way (of blame) is only against those who oppress men and wrongly rebel in the earth without justification; for such there will be a painful torment.'' (42:42)

`Iyad bin Himar (May Allah be pleased with him) said: The Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said, "Verily, Allah has revealed to me that you should adopt humility. So that no one may wrong another and no one may be disdainful and haughty towards another.''

Commentary: Anyone whom Allah has granted wealth or authority, beauty or splendour, should take it as Allah's Gift. He should take to adopt humility and humbleness and express his gratitude for it to Allah. He should benefit people with the gifts bestowed upon him by Allah and not make them a means of pride and oppression.

Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) said: The Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said, "When a person says: `People have been ruined, he is the one to be ruined the most.'''

In another version: "He himself is the most ruined among them.''

Commentary: This Hadith prohibits a Muslim from saying the statement in the Hadith or something similar to it out of arrogance and pride. There is no harm, however, if one says it in view of the bad state of affairs to which Muslims have been reduced as a result of, for example, neglecting the teachings of Islam. Of the religious scholars, who hold this view, are Imam Malik bin Anas, Imam Al-Khattabi, Al-Humaidi and others. This point has been made clear in Imam An-Nawawi's Al-Adhkar.

The Prophet recommended a very simple but significant way to help Muslims gain brotherhood saying: "I swear y the One in Whose hands my soul is, you will not enter Paradise until you believe, and you will not believe until you love one another. Shall I not tell you of something that if you do it, you will love one another? Spread salaam [greeting one another saying: As-Salaam Alaykum] amongst yourselves." [Muslim] Greeting each other frequently and lovingly is the first step to achieving the ideal brotherhood.

The one who oppresses others should fear Allaah and beware of transgression, because it will be counted as multiples of transgressions on the Day of Resurrection: one for him disobeying Allaah, another for him oppressing his fellow Muslim, and a third for initiating and opening the gate of transgression and oppression for others to imitate. The wronged person could even eventually die as a result of the oppression, and the transgressor would bear the consequences of this.

Just look at what ‘Umar did with the public property of the Muslims: Aslam narrated: “`Umar Ibn Al-Khattaab appointed a freed slave of his, called Hunayy, as manager of the Himaa (i.e. a pasture devoted for grazing the animals of the Zakaah or other specified animals, such as those used for Jihaad etc.). He said to him: 'O Hunayy! Do not oppress the Muslims and (be sure to) ward off their curse (i.e. invocations against you), for the invocation of the oppressed is responded to (by Allaah); allow the shepherd having a few camels and those having a few sheep (to graze their animals in that land), and take care not to allow the livestock of 'Abdur-Rahmaan Ibn 'Awf and the livestock of ('Uthmaan) Ibn 'Affaan (to graze their animals in your land), for if their livestock should perish, then they still have their farms and gardens, while for those who own only a few camels or sheep, if their livestock should perish, they would bring their dependents to me and appeal for help saying: 'O Chief of the Believers! O Chief of the Believers!' Would I then neglect them? (No, of course not). So I find it easier to let them have water and grass than to give them gold and silver (from the Muslim treasury). By Allaah! These people think that I have been unjust to them. This is their land, and during the pre-lslaamic period, they fought for it but then they embraced Islaam (willingly) while it was in their possession. I swear By Him in whose Hand my life is! Were it not for the animals (in my custody) which I give to be ridden for Jihaad (i.e. fighting in Allaah's Cause), I would not have turned even a span of their land into a Himaa.'” [Al-Bukhaari]


This was said regarding a matter that was not personal and he was merely being careful not to utilise the Muslim property in an incorrect manner, and yet he feared being unjust in any way. Therefore, those who transgress other people’s rights should fear Allaah and fear the oppressed supplicating against them, as this is a very dangerous matter.

Mu`aath reported that the Messenger of Allaah dispatched him (as governor of Yemen) and instructed him thus: “Beware of the supplication of the oppressed, for there is no barrier between it and Allaah.” [Al-Bukhaari & Muslim]


In another narration, the Prophet of Allaah said: "There are three persons whose supplications are never rejected: The just leader, the fasting person when he breaks his fast, and the oppressed when he supplicates and whose supplication is raised above the clouds and the gates of heaven are opened for it, and (to whom) Allaah will say: 'By My Glory! I shall assist you, even if it is after a while.'" [At-Tirmithi]


Abu Hurayrah reported that the Prophet said: “He who has done a wrong that affects his brother's honour or anything else, let him ask his forgiveness today before the time (i.e., the Day of Resurrection) when he will have neither a Deenaar nor a Dirham. (On that Day), if he has done some good deeds, a portion equal to his wrongdoings will be subtracted from them; but if he has no good deeds, he will be burdened with the evil deeds of the one he had wronged in the same proportion.” [Al-Bukhaari]

The Prophet explained, "Allaah said: those who love one another for My glory will be upon Minbars of light [high positions], and the Prophets and martyrs will wish that they had the same." [At-Tirmithi]

Abu Hurayrah reported: “The Messenger of Allaah said: "Do you know who is the bankrupt one?'' The people said: 'The bankrupt among us is the one who has neither money nor property.' He said: “The real bankrupt one of my nation would be he who would come on the Day of Resurrection having (performed) prayers, (observed) fasting and (spent in) charity, (but he will find himself bankrupt on that Day due to depleting these good deeds) because he despised others, uttered slanderous terms against others, unlawfully devoured the wealth of others, shed the blood of others, and beat others. Therefore his good deeds would be credited to the account of those (who suffered at his hand). If his good deeds are exhausted, their sins (i.e., those he oppressed) will be entered in his account and he will be thrown into the (Hell) Fire.” [Muslim]


-The Prophet advised: "Believers are like a structure, parts of which support one another. The believers, in their mutual friendship, mercy and affection, are like one body; if any part of it complains, the rest of the body will also stay awake in fever." [Al-Bukhaari and Muslim]

Anas reported: “The Messenger of Allaah said: 'Help your brother, whether he is an oppressor or is oppressed.' A man asked: 'O Messenger of Allaah! I (know how to) help him when he is oppressed, but how can I help him when he is an oppressor?' He said: 'You can restrain him from committing oppression. That will be your help to him.'” [Al-Bukhaari & Muslim]


Al-Baraa’ reported: “The Messenger of Allaah commanded us with seven things (one of which is): “Support the transgressed.”

Ibn `Umar and his father, reported that the Messenger of Allaah said: “A Muslim is a brother of another Muslim. (So) he should not oppress him, nor should he forsake him (i.e. when he is being oppressed).” [Al-Bukhaari & Muslim]

Therefore, one must support the oppressed and the one who is being transgressed against; the one who refrains from supporting an oppressed person, whilst being able to, is sinful.

Abu Bakr said: "O people! You recite this verse (which means): “O you who believe! Upon you is [responsibility for] yourselves. Those who have gone astray will not harm you when you have been guided...” [Quran 5:105] (but misinterpret it) for I have heard the Messenger of Allaah saying: 'When people see an oppressor but do not prevent him from (doing evil), it is likely that Allaah will punish them all.'" [Abu Daawood & At-Tirmithi]

One should prevent the oppressor physically if possible, and this responsibility is greater with respect to the rulers and those in authority. If one cannot stop the oppressor physically, then he should do it verbally.

These teachings encourage Muslims to improve themselves, thereby improving their society. "Do not break off ties with one another, do not turn away from one another, do not hate one another, and do not envy one another. Be O slaves of Allaah brothers." [Al-Bukhaari]
