Abdullah: On the Level or Sneaky Devil?

King Abdullah bin Abdulaziz
United Nations

New York, November 12, 2008
SUSRIS

[…]religions through which Almighty God sought to bring happiness to mankind should not be turned into instruments to cause misery.

Who turned Islam into an instrument of misery, and when?

Bukhari Volume 5, Book 59, Number 512:
Narrated Anas:
The Prophet offered the Fajr Prayer near Khaibar when it was still dark and then said, “Allahu-Akbar! Khaibar is destroyed, for whenever we approach a (hostile) nation (to fight), then evil will be the morning for those who have been warned.” Then the inhabitants of Khaibar came out running on the roads. The Prophet had their warriors killed, their offspring and woman taken as captives. Safiya was amongst the captives, She first came in the share of Dahya Alkali but later on she belonged to the Prophet . The Prophet made her manumission as her ‘Mahr’.

No, it was not Abd Al-Wahhab in recent times, it was Islam’s founder in the 7th century. Moe was the one who recited ayat which sanctify & mandate Jihad, genocide & casting terror. Those ayat are Allah’s words, which can not be changed; they are clear commands which must be believed and implemented. Shariah, codified in Reliance of the Traveller, Book O, lists acts which entail apostasy.
O8.7: Acts that Entail Leaving Islam

-7- to deny any verse of the Koran or anything which by scholarly consensus (def: b7) belongs to it, or to add a verse that does [not] belong to it;

-20- or to deny that Allah intended the Prophet’s message (Allah bless him and give him peace) to be the religion followed by the entire world (dis: w4.3-4) (al-Hadiyya al-`Ala’iyya (y4), 423-24). )

The law defining & prescribing Jihad follows immediately after that list in Chapter 9.  If King Abdullah sincerely seeks to permanently terminate Jihad, genocide & terrorism, then he has severed himself from true Islam and risks his throne and his life to the anger of the Ikhwan Al-Islamiyyah among his zealous subjects.

Throughout history, preoccupation with differences between the followers of religions and cultures has engendered intolerance, causing devastating wars and considerable bloodshed without any sound logical or ideological justification. It is high time for us to learn from the harsh lessons of the past and concur on the ethics and ideals in which we all believe. Matters on which we differ will be decided by our Omniscient Creator on the Day of Judgment. Every tragedy suffered in today’s world is ultimately a result of the abandonment of the paramount principle enunciated by all religions and cultures: The roots of all global crises can be found in human denial of the eternal principle of justice.


Terrorism and criminality are the enemies of every religion and every civilization. They would not have appeared except for the absence of the principle of tolerance.

  • Terrorism is a mandatory sacrament of Islam, practiced & bragged about by Moe. 
    • 3:151. We shall cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve, because they joined others in worship with Allah, for which He had sent no authority; their abode will be the Fire and how evil is the abode of the Zalimûn (polytheists and wrong­doers).
    • 8:12. (Remember) when your Lord inspired the angels, “Verily, I am with you, so keep firm those who have believed. I will cast terror into the hearts of those who have disbelieved, so strike them over the necks, and smite over all their fingers and toes.
    • 33:26.  And those of the people of the Scripture who backed them (the disbelievers) Allah brought them down from their forts and cast terror into their hearts, (so that) a group (of them) you killed, and a group (of them) you made captives.
    • Bukhari Volume 4, Book 52, Number 220:
       Narrated Abu Huraira:

          Allah’s Apostle said, “I have been sent with the shortest expressions bearing the widest meanings, and I have been made victorious with terror (cast in the hearts of the enemy),[…]

The alienation and the sense of loss which affects the lives of many of or young, leading them to drugs and crime, became widespread due to the dissolution of family bonds that Almighty God intended to be firm and strong.

That is one of the standard arguments of Dawa, inviting you to embrace Islam.

Our dialogue, conducted in a constructive manner, should, by the grace of God, revive and reinstate these lofty ideals among peoples and nations. No doubt, God willing, this will constitute a glorious triumph of what is most noble over what is most evil in human beings and will grant mankind hope of a future in which justice, security and a decent life will prevail over injustice, fear and poverty.

What is most noble? Islam! What is most evil? Kuffar!  And the utopian future of plenty? It is prophesied in Moe’s Sunnah.

Bukhari Volume 4, Book 55, Number 657:

Narrated Abu Huraira:

Allah’s Apostle said, “By Him in Whose Hands my soul is, surely (Jesus,) the son of Mary will soon descend amongst you and will judge mankind justly (as a Just Ruler); he will break the Cross and kill the pigs and there will be no Jizya (i.e. taxation taken from non Muslims). Money will be in abundance so that nobody will accept it, and a single prostration to Allah (in prayer) will be better than the whole world and whatever is in it.” Abu Huraira added “If you wish, you can recite (this verse of the Holy Book): — ‘And there is none Of the people of the Scriptures (Jews and Christians) But must believe in him (i.e Jesus as an Apostle of Allah and a human being) Before his death. And on the Day of Judgment He will be a witness Against them.” (4.159) (See Fateh Al Bari, Page 302 Vol 7)

I can assure them and all the states of the world, their peoples, their leaders and their organizations, that our concern for the dialogue stems from our Islamic faith and values and our compassion for the human condition in order to overcome its miseries.

We will continue what we have commenced, extending our hand to all those advocating peace, justice and tolerance.

In conclusion, I would like to remind all of you, and myself, of the words of the Holy Qur’an:
“O Mankind! We have created you from a single pair of a male and female, and made you into nations and tribes, so that ye may know each other. Very, the most honored of you in the sight of God is he who is the most righteous of you.[49:13]

Ain’t that sweet, we’re all created by allah so we should get to know each other and be brothers. Lets delve a little deeper.

(O mankind! We have created you from a male and a female, and made you into nations and tribes that you may know one another.) so that they get to know each other by their nation or tribe. Mujahid said that Allah’s statement, (that you may know one another.) refers to one’s saying, “So-and-so the son of so-and-so, from the tribe of so-and-so.” Sufyan Ath-Thawri said, “The Himyar (who resided in Yemen) dealt with each other according to their provinces, while the Arabs in the Hijaz (Western Arabia) dealt with each other according to their tribes.”[Second Tafsir linked below. ]

Allah was talking about a system of identification; appending tribal names to surnames to tell people apart.

    Allah’s slave left off a significant clause at the end of that ayeh. 

Verily, the most honourable of you with Allah is that (believer) who has At-Taqwa [i.e. one of the Muttaqûn (pious – see V.2:2)]. Verily, Allah is All-Knowing, All-Aware.

The next two ayat convey important information: the defining test of Iman & Tawqa, which is highlighted for clarity.

49:14.  The bedouins say: “We believe.” Say: “You believe not but you only say, ‘We have surrendered (in Islam),’ for Faith has not yet entered your hearts. But if you obey Allah and His Messenger (), He will not decrease anything in reward for your deeds. Verily, Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.”

49:15. Only those are the believers who have believed in Allah and His Messenger, and afterward doubt not but strive with their wealth and their lives for the Cause of Allah. Those! They are the truthful.

Participation in Jihad is the test of righteousness; its how you prove your Taqwa. Surah Al-Hujuraat is only 18 ayat, in it, Moe is warning against internecine disputes & divisions. Use the link in the quote  to read it all. The following topics in Ibn Kathir’s Tafsir relate to the cited ayat. 

    There is ambiguity in the King’s address; perhaps because he is navigating a treacherous strait between Kuffar & Ikhwan. If he has embarked on a course of  reform, it will be adjuged bida and be rejected by many.  By so doing, he risks throne & head.

    If, as I assume, he extends the forked tongue of al-Taqeyya & hand of trickery, our ecclesiastical & temporal leaders would do well to react with caution, count their fingers and listen between the lines.
