Allying Oneself to the Weak Ones in Arabia against the KSA

Published in Arabic in November 13, 2016

Translated by: Ahmed Fathy

Introduction:

 This message we have received from a friend has pained us: here is part of it, followed by our reply: (… reading your recent article, I understand that you wish every possible harm to the KSA – despite my discontent of such a name to my homeland – and that you tend to forget that my country is not confined to Al-Saud family of rulers and Wahabism; ordinary citizens will get harmed if what you predict about the imminent collapse of the KSA would come true – God forbid – while the Al-Saud family will certainly flee to their palaces worldwide. The only ones to get really harmed are the general masses of the weak ones who are too poor to get out of Arabia, just like myself, the writer of this message … I see that the only ideal solution to the problems of the KSA is internal reform coming from within citizens, not a reform imposed by foreign countries, especially that the vast majority of citizens inside the KSA are religious and can be reformed using Quranism: in the way you have shown us how to understand Quranic facts … I hope to you and to all sincere peaceful believers all security and goodness …).

 

OUR REPLY:

 It is a religious duty in Islam to ally ourselves to the weak ones on this earth; we have nothing but our pen to assert this alliance and to expose and stand against the unjust, arrogant ones. We understand the following from the Quran about the weak ones on earth.

 

The meaning of being ''weak ones on earth'':

 In the Quranic text, we discern that the term refers to the case when an unjust, arrogant, powerful party would use all means to make those outside their circles of power weak ones who submit to them in all ways; hence, those weak ones would be forced to ask for being safe in return for showing submission, weakness, blind obedience, and servility to the powerful party. If those weak ones would rather refuse such humiliation and decide to live in dignity as strong citizens and would accept death in the struggle to be free, they would not be considered as ''weak ones''.

 

Means of forcing the weak ones to accept weakness:

1- Moses' Pharaoh had forced a faction of the population in Egypt into the status of weak ones, using of course means of terrorism like committing massacres and torture, and this caused terror among the majority of unharmed factions; hence, all the population in Egypt had to submit to Moses' Pharaoh as ruler/deity: "Pharaoh exalted himself as superior in the land, and divided its people into factions. He persecuted a group of them, slaughtering their sons, while sparing their daughters. He was truly a corrupter." (28:4).

2- Hence, we can say that Moses' Pharaoh had used an earthly, man-made, fabricated religion to make people submit to him; he claimed that he is the supreme god/deity of all Egyptians: "And he gathered and proclaimed; he said, "I am your Lord, the most high"" (:23-24). Moses' Pharaoh claimed to all people that they have no deity apart from himself: "Pharaoh said, "O nobles, I know of no god for you other than me…" (28:38). Using oppression, torture, and terror as well as his own fashioned religion, Moses' Pharaoh claimed to all people that he owned the land of Egypt: "Pharaoh proclaimed among his people, saying, "O my people, do I not own the Kingdom of Egypt, and these rivers flow beneath me? Do you not see?" (43:51). Thus, Moses' Pharaoh had enslaved Egypt and its people, as all Pharaonic tyrants did and do until now; and so did and does until now the Saudi royal family.

3- In addition to torture and all sorts of terrorism, the Saudi royal family imposes its Wahabi religion to rule, tyrannize, loot, commit the illegal and the unlawful, and force and reduce Arabians (city dwellers, villagers, and Bedouins) into being weak, submissive ones who are forced as well to be loyal to the Saudi royal family by means of Wahabi religion imposed on the educational, cultural, political, and religious spheres. Hence, Arabians of Arabia are forced to accept the humiliation and insult: to be named ''Saudis'', which means literally that people are ''owned'' as slaves by the Saudi royal family; this is the worst evidence that this Saudi royal family is forcing people to be among the weak ones.  If an Arabian man is from the Arabian tribe of Shamar, and this tribe would dominate over the whole of Arabia one day, the citizens might be called Shamarians (instead of Saudis) and this would be a disgrace to all Arabians who do not belong to this tribe, despite the fact that Shamar is one of the biggest tribes in Arabia in terms of number of tribesmen – as far as we know – and it is well-known in history of Arabia, unlike the unknown and never ascertained origin of the Saudi royal family. What helped this criminal Saudi royal family to rule and tyrannize and to enslave and loot all Arabians (city dwellers, villagers, and Bedouins) is not only the sword; rather, it is the Wahabi religion that they impose and pass off as 'Islam', while real Islam (the Quran) is innocent of such falsehood and deception.

 

The real divine religion of God is the way of resistance to stop being among the weak ones:

1- This is a general rule in the Quran: "And thus We set up in every village its leading wicked sinners, to conspire in it, but they conspire only against themselves, and they do not realize it. When a sign comes to them, they say, "We will not believe unless we are given the like of what was given to God's messengers." God knows best where to place His message. Humiliation from God and severe torment will afflict the criminals for their scheming." (6:123-124). The Quranic term ''village'' means any given human society (and we refer you to our Quranic terminology section on our website). Ordinary criminals are punished and/or imprisoned, whereas the worst criminals that mostly go unpniushed in this life are tyrants and their cronies and elite, who enter palaces and lines of history books; we have said before in our previous books and articles how history is usually written and controlled by orders an directions of those criminal elite and powerful ones, who use all intrigues and plots to force and reduce people into weak ones to control over nations, and finally, in many instances, the wheel of fortune moves and they fall by the hands of other new criminals ascending to power or fall by the hands of God when they die and perceive their fate in Hell for eternity, as evil scheming overwhelms none but its authors; see 35:43. These criminal elite fight the divine Truth and feel so proud and arrogant that they prevent preachers of this Truth from being outspoken; for instance, the Saudi royal family members see themselves as the only ones to preach and appoint Wahabi preachers to distort and overlook the Quranic meanings. This has been repeated by affluent elite and retinue in the runic stories about prophets; they felt envious and insisted that they deserve to preach and call instead of prophets an prophets' followers. This applies to KSA regime and all tyrants in tyrannical countries. Hence, a Wahabi tyrant who claims to be a Muslim cannot possibly allow any preacher to preach real Islam (the Quran alone) with its higher values of justice, peace, religious freedom, political freedom, and the rest of human rights.      

2- The most hated thing by tyrants is justice that makes them equal to the rest of citizens; only the pious ones are those who do not desire to be superior on earth and desire not corruption, as they seek only Paradise of the Hereafter: "That Home of the Hereafter-We assign it for those who seek no superiority on earth nor corruption. And the outcome is for the pious." (28:83). As for tyrants, like Al-Saud family and the family of Romanov, they follow the footsteps of Moses' Pharaoh who made himself superior on earth and was a corrupter: "Pharaoh exalted himself in the land as superior, and divided its people into factions. He persecuted a group of them, slaughtering their sons, while sparing their daughters. He was truly a corrupter." (28:4).

3- God has sent prophets and divine messages so that people (of all genders and age groups) establish justice, and if peaceful means, jihad, or struggle to achieve justice are successful, God has created iron for armed struggle to fight for the sake of justice, and those who favor justice will win victory by God Himself, as we understand from the following verse: "We sent Our messengers with the clear proofs, and We sent down with them the Book and the Balance, that humanity may uphold justice. And We sent down iron, in which is violent force, and benefits for humanity. That God may know who supports Him and His messengers invisibly. God is Strong and Powerful." (57:25). We pose this query: does any preacher inside the KSA dare to show the meaning of 57:25 to Arabians now?!

4- Real problem no. 1 faced when trying to apply 57:25 is to raise real Quranic/Quranist awareness among people to make them stand united against injustice and to establish justice and equality among citizens so that people rule themselves by themselves; this is direct democracy in our modern-day terms. This Quranic awareness should be combined with the struggle for freedom, while removing the status of being forced to be among the weak ones (culture of enslavement, submission, passivity, and humiliation) and to change it into feelings of dignity, victory, and power derived from the belief in God and His Quran: "…But power belongs to God, and His Messenger, and the believers; but the hypocrites do not know." (63:8). Hence, people must change themselves as per this high level of faith in God, and hence, their struggle for freedom and for justice will be crowned with victory from God: "…God does not change the condition of a people until they change what is within themselves…" (13:11)

5- Another real problem no. 2 faced by preachers of Quranic justice is that tyrants never cede power and throne easily or on their own free will; rather, they readily use violence and oppression against peaceful preachers of the Quranic Truth and justice, to chase away notions of freedom and justice by carnage, imprisonment, and torture. This is typical in all tyrannical countries past and present. Tyrants fear the word of Truth and are mostly incorrigible as they resist reform by all means. In many cases, tyrants would raise banners and mottoes of reform to deceive nations and to undermine awareness raised by real Truth-preachers and reformers before imprisoning them. We refer you to our 2010 article (in Arabic and in English) titled "Is It Possible to Reform the KSA?", written in response to deceitful maneuver of King Abdullah of the KSA when he talked about 'applying reform'.      

6- When peaceful means to establish justice bear no fruits, iron is the only option left; i.e., armed struggle against tyrants.

 

Resistance of being ''among the weak ones'' in Islam (the Quran):

1- In the past, as we know from the Quranic stories, there was the divine intervention to wipe out arrogant tyrants, from Noah's people to Moses' Pharaoh's people. After the death of Moses' Pharaoh's people, a new era began: real believers must struggle by all means themselves to establish justice and freedom. When God has imposed this on the Israelites, they were reluctant to execute divine commands, and were punished to wander for 40 years in Sinai; see 5:20-26. The next generation of the Israelites fought as God ordained them to, as a response to injustice they suffered that caused them to be driven away from home; see 2:246-251. 

2- Divine commands to fight for this just cause; i.e., against being forced to be among the weak ones and against arrogant superior tyrants, are mentioned in the Torah, the Gospel, and the Quran, in relation with all Quranic stories of prophets: and stories of Moses, Jesus, and Muhammad are no exception to this: "God has purchased from the believers their lives and their properties in exchange for Paradise. They fight in God's way, and they kill and get killed. It is a promise binding on Him in the Torah, and the Gospel, and the Quran. And who is more true to his promise than God? So rejoice in making such an exchange-that is the supreme triumph." (9:111). These verses are linked to the story of Jesus, as an sufficient example in this article: "O you who believe! Shall I inform you of a trade that will save you from a painful torment? That you believe in God and His Messenger, and strive in the cause of God with your possessions and yourselves. That is best for you, if you only knew. He will forgive you your sins; and will admit you into gardens beneath which rivers flow, and into beautiful mansions in the Gardens of Eden. That is the supreme success.  And something else you love: support from God, and imminent victory. So give good news to the believers. O you who believe! Be supporters of God, as Jesus son of Mary said to the disciples, "Who are my supporters towards God?" The disciples said, "We are God's supporters." So a group of the Children of Israel believed, while another group disbelieved. We supported those who believed against their foe, so they became dominant." (61:10-14).

3- Of course, this religious duty to fight for freedom and justice is only when good and sufficient reparations are complete for it, as per this verse mentioning the weak ones: "And why would you not fight in the cause of God, and the helpless men, and women, and children, cry out, "Our Lord, deliver us from this town whose people are oppressive, and appoint for us from Your Presence a Protector, and appoint for us from Your Presence a Victor. "" (4:75). We discern here that one of the levels of meanings of being among the weak ones is the presence of unjust ones in a given society. 

4- Without the ability to fight and resist, those who can immigrate should do this at once; while those who can but demur to immigrate will suffer Hell for eternity, as we understand from this verse: "While the angels are removing the souls of those who have wronged themselves, they will say, "What was the matter with you?" They will say, "We were oppressed in the land." They will say, "Was God's earth not vast enough for you to emigrate in it?" These-their refuge is Hell. What a wretched retreat! Except for the weak among men, and women, and children who have no means to act, and no means to find a way out. These-God may well pardon them. God is Pardoning and Forgiving." (4:97-99). Of course, immigration is not easily and its way is not paved; it includes hardships and difficulties that need to be overcome, and immigrants will be rewarded by God's mercy even if they die before reaching the safe destination: "Anyone who emigrates for the sake of God will find on earth many places of refuge, and plentitude. Anyone who leaves his home, emigrating to God and His Messenger, and then is overtaken by death, his compensation falls on God. God is Forgiver, Most Merciful." (4:100). Hence, God will reward those immigrants in this world and the Next World as they have applied this verses: "Those who emigrate for God's sake after being persecuted, We will settle them in a good place in this world; but the reward of the Hereafter is greater, if they only knew. Those who endure patiently, and in their Lord they put their trust." (16:41-42).

 

Why immigration and why fighting:

1- The penalty of arrogant tyrants and the weak ones who submit and never resist is Hell in the Hereafter.

2- In the past, God destroyed unjust societies; the affluent ones who monopolized power, authority, and wealth and who refused the call for justice and equality had exploded inwardly for internal reasons or were conquered by outsider enemies, or by both ways. When tyrants rule for decades, they use up all resources of their nations and oppress, kill, neutralize, or persecute experts of all fields who seek reforms, or force them to immigrate, and the rest who remained around them are the mob who rule and control and will quarrel with one another when the tyrants are dead, ending up in civil wars and the interference of regional and international powers. This is seen now in Middle East tyrannical countries, and the Saudi royal family cannot be away from a similar fate of collapse; people all over the world are talking publicly about the imminent collapse of the KSA and its percussions. It is no secret that the KSA will vanish from the map very soon.       

3- We prostrate devoutly before the Almighty God as we ponder these verses about the results of forcing people to be among the weak, oppressed ones: "Never did We destroy a town, but it had warners, as a reminder; We are never Unjust." (26:208-209); "When We decide to destroy a town, We command its affluent ones, they transgress in it, so the word becomes justified against it, and We destroy it completely." (17:16); "How many a town have We destroyed while it was doing wrong? They lie in ruins; with stilled wells, and lofty mansions." (22:45).

4- What is worst is to dwell for eternity in Hell: both the weak ones who were submissive and did not resist or immigrate as well as the arrogant, affluent tyrants. Only those who resist and fight or immigrate to live in freedom and peace and faith will be spared from the punishment of Hell. Let us ponder on the dialogue between both parties (tyrants and weak submissive ones) in Hell: " Those who disbelieve say, "We will never believe in this Quran, nor in what came before it." If you could only see the wrongdoers, captive before their Lord, throwing back allegations at one another. Those who were oppressed will say to those who were arrogant, "Were it not for you, we would have been believers." Those who were arrogant will say to those who were oppressed, "Was it us who turned you away from guidance when it came to you? No indeed, you yourselves were sinful." And those who were oppressed will say to those who were arrogant, "It was your scheming by night and day; as you instructed us to reject God, and to set up rivals to Him." They will hide their remorse when they see the retribution. We will put yokes around the necks of those who disbelieved. Will they be repaid for anything other than what they used to do? We sent no warner to any town, without its affluent saying, "We reject what you are sent with." And they say, "We have more wealth and more children, and we will not be punished."" (34:31-35); "As they quarrel in the Fire, the weak will say to those who were arrogant, "We were followers of yours; will you then spare us a portion of the Fire?" Those who were arrogant will say, "We are all in it; God has judged between the servants."" (40:47-48); "The Day when their faces are flipped into the Fire, they will say, "If only we had obeyed God and obeyed the Message." And they will say, "Lord, we have obeyed our superiors and our dignitaries, but they led us away from the way. Lord, give them double the punishment, and curse them with a great curse."" (33:66-68).

 

Lastly:

1- We assert here how poor the weak ones are, who accept humiliation and being enslaved into the culture of enslavement, as tyrants loot their share in life and will keep their company in Hell for eternity.

2- One lives a short life in this transient world and is doomed to die eventually, and our lifetimes are predetermined by God before we are born. The earth is endless, vast, and as round as a watermelon; imagine an ant walking on a watermelon, never reaching its borders. Hence, it is foolish and misguidance to waste one's short lifetime in submitting to tyrants; if you cannot resist tyrants, immigrate to live freely elsewhere. Of course, our friend, you might suffer difficulties in your new life elsewhere but the Dominant God will never forget you with His mercy, and you do not have necessarily to immigrate to the USA or EU to enjoy freedom; you may immigrate to many other places like New Zealand in the south to Iceland in the North.

3- The best discourse: let us ponder on this verse: "Every soul will taste death. Then to Us you will be returned. Those who believe and work righteousness-We will settle them in Paradise, in mansions under which rivers flow, dwelling therein forever. Excellent is the compensation for the workers." (29:57-58). God says nothing but the Truth.
