The Field of the Battle and its Weapons
IF THE SUBJECT of the battle between truth and falsehood is that of the unity of Allah or Tawhid al-Uluhiyyah, then the stage of this battle is life in all its aspects and details. The life which is contested between the servants of Allah and the servants of the devils.
There is no doubt that the servants of the wrongdoers always work to make people ignorant of the real nature of monotheism and isolate it to certain limited corners of life. This is conducted in order to enable them to deceive the people and lead them astray with their dreadful plans. To the degree that if the evildoers claim, only claim, that they rule by the laws of Allah, and that they are calling to the religion of Allah, and working for reform, the people would believe them, because they do not know the real essence of Tawhid. They do not realize that it encompasses every aspect of life. If they knew
this they would have said to the evildoers: Produce an evidence for what you are claiming, if what you say is true! (Surah Al-Baqarah: 111) They would also call aloud: â€śHow can you contradict in your every action what you say with your tongue?â€ť Likewise it is among the objectives of the evildoers that they keep the people in a state of ignorance of monotheism so that they would be able to create doubts among the Ummah concerning the Call to Allah. And sow seeds of skepticism in the souls of the
masses concerning the aims of the callers and their message.
The weapons of this war between polytheism and monotheism, between the servants of the devils and the servants of Allah, are every means that can be used. For the servants of the devils would not fear to use any means to realize their objectives. Even though their aim is deprave, for it involves the worship of other than Allah. They have no compunctions about using corrupt and debased methods to achieve their goals, including lies, deception, theft, espionage, and any other methods that fall into
Indeed they go even further by employing methods of violence, repression, eviction, murder, and all other forms of tyranny. Thus we find that the countries which claim to protect human rights do not, under any circumstances, show any value for the Muslim person. They attach no value to his blood, in fact they use weapons of mass destruction against themâ€¦ and what are weapons of mass destruction anyway?
Is not the poverty that has been imposed upon the Muslims among the weapons of mass destruction? To the extent that those Muslims become wholly preoccupied with finding their daily bread. Hence we find vast numbers of Muslims dying from hunger in many Islamic lands. By Allah, you can see the Muslim infant reeling in pain and dying of hunger in front of your own eyes in some countries!
Is not the promotion of ignorance among the Muslims of their religion and their worldly affairs a weapon of mass destruction used against them? Such that Muslims become ignorant and do not practice their religion, not do they invite others to it. They do not follow those who preach to them, ignorant of the world around them. So much so that they have become dependent on the enemies of Islam even for their daily needs.
Is not the drowning of the Muslims in places of diseases, despair, and decay among the
weapons of mass destruction directed by the enemies of Islam to physically get rid of them, reduce their numbers, and dominate their lives!
Is not the destruction of the Muslim economies and their oppression in debt which they could never extricate themselves from except with new timetables that increases the burden and increase the debts â€“ is this not among the weapons of mass destruction?
All these destructive weapons and others are used by those who call for the protection of human rights. Where are the human rights, or is the white Westerner the only person whose rights and dignity should be protected?
This great battle between the various forms of polytheism and the one true monotheism, truth and falsehood, the callers to Allah and the callers to evil will continue to be fought in every sphere of life. Undoubtedly, the battles between shirk and Tawhid is the greatest of all battles.
