Muslims but not Criminals

#Syria/#ISIS:

(English Version and Translation below)

“يا شباب الإسلام…لسنا هواة قتل، لسنا هواة ذبح، لسنا هواة رعب وإرهاب. يا أبطال ثورتنا، ويا أمل أمّتنا … العدل ديننا، الإسلام تاج على رؤوسنا، الإحسان مبدأنا، الظّلم ليس منّا ولسنا منه، محاكمة هؤلاء الأسرى والعدل فيهم حقّ في رقابنا. من غرّر به نصحناه. من ضلّ عن الطريق آوينآه، ومن قتل منّا فالجزاء من جنس العمل لا تمثيل ولا تصوير ولا مباهاة بقتل أبدا. لسنا بحاجة إلى تصاوير ولا مشاهدات لا تزيد القلوب إلّا قسوة ولا تزيد الثورة إلّا ظلاماً ولا تزيد المتربّصين إلّا فرحاً ولا تزيد الأعداء إلّا حقداً وإنتقاماً. أمّا أنتم يا داعش الغلوّ والظّلام، إن كان السواد واللّثام شعاركم فالبياض والوضوح شعارنا، إن كان قطع الرّؤوس دينكم وهواكم، فديننا في إصلاحها وترسيخ الإيمان فيها. من رجع منكم قبلناه وسامحناه ومن ضلّ عن الطريق أويناه ومن غرّر به نصحناه وأمّا من أصرّ على بغيه وضلالته وقتال أمّته فليس له عندنا إلّا سيف علي الكرّار، ووصيّة رسول الله لأقتلنّهم قتل عاد…” الشيخ محمد الخطيب مخاطباً الأسرى في آخر الفيديو أدناه.


فرق كبير بين هؤلاء الموجودون في الفيديو أدناه وبين بعض عناصر تنظيم الدّولة، ولكن للأسف، وسائل الإعلام ومن ورائها السياسة ومصالح بعض الدّول تؤدّي إلى دمج الحقائق وتحريفها، لا لشيء بل لأجل تشويه هذا الدين. عندما نشاهد فيديو ما أو مشاهد عنيفة تنسب زوراً للإسلام، يتّهم بها المسلمون مباشرة ودون أي دليل، وسرعان ما تبداً وسائل الإعلام بنشر والتسابق على نشر هكذا أمور تحت شعار الإسلام والمسلمين الإرهابيين، ولكن عندما نشاهد فيديو ما أو مقاطع تنشر حقيقة الإسلام السمح ومدى سلميّة ورحمة هذا الدّين، بكل بساطة يتم تجاهل هكذا أمور ولا نراها على وسائل الإعلام بقدر ما نرى تلك التي تشوّهه، وربّما يتم التعتيم عليها إعلاميّاً لكي لا تصل لجمهورهم.

Days ago, a video released by the Levant’s Front (Syrian Rebel moderate group follows the Free Syrian Army) imitating ISIS famous execution videos. The fake execution video spares the lives of nine captured ISIS fighters. The message delivered by the video was “This is not our policy. We “Muslims” are not evil”,”Justice is our religion, Islam is a crown over our heads, benevolence is our main Islamic principle, injustice is not one of us and we are not of it. Suing these prisoners by justice is a right in our necks.”

Here is a translation of the Muslim Scholar’s speech “Muhammad Al-Khatib” at the end of the video below, when he was advising the prisoners;

“O youth of Islam, we are not amateurs of killing, not amateurs of slaughtering, we are not amateurs of horror and terror…..O heroes of our revolution and the hope of our Ummah (Islam nation)…Justice is our religion, Islam is a crown over our heads, benevolence or charity is our main Islamic principle, injustice is not one of us and we are not of it. Suing these prisoners by justice is a right in our necks. Those who were deceived, we shall advise them. Those of you who lost their path (straight true Islamic path), we shall refuge and provide a shelter for them. And those who killed us, then “you reap what you sow” and what you do shall be done over you in return, but without disfiguring corpses, without filming and photographing, and without priding and ostentation or touting to kill… at all.

We do not need videos or photos of killing and slaughtering which lead to nothing but making hearts tougher and more cruelty, increasing the darkness of our revolution, making our enemies and predators happy and joyful and leading to nothing but to increase hatred and revenge in them against us.

As for you, O “Da’esh- ISIS/ISIL” …the extremism and darkness… If blackness and masks are your slogan, then whiteness and clearness is ours. If decapitation is your religion and desires, then our religion is repairing, reconciliation and consolidation of Iman (Faith) in it…. Who wants to return back and repent, we will accept and forgive him, who lost his path (straight true Islamic path) then we will refuge and provide a shelter for him, and who were deceived, then we will advise him. But, who insists on his mischiefs and blackness by killing his Ummah, then he will see nothing in return else than the sword of Imam Ali ibn Abi Talib (the cousin and son-in-law of Prophet Muhammad PBUH) and the commandment of the Messenger of Allah (Muhammad PBUH) when he said; “I will kill them the way ‘Aad people (an ancient tribe mentioned in Quran) were killed”.”

Those people and the majority of Muslims like them are not terrorists, but, media maligns Islam and the facts around us. Have we forgotten the commandments of the Messenger of Allah, Muhammad (PBUH) and the Muslim Caliphs after him, when they used to give orders to Muslim troops before going to any battle…? let us remember that.. “Do not cut a tree, nor kill a woman. Do not kill a child nor a sick person. Do not kill old people nor a monk or a priest. Do not destroy a temple or a church nor a building or others’ properties. Do not disfigure the dead bodies, nor kill an animal except for eating. Do not kill those who surrendered nor those who ran away. Be good to the prisoners and feed them, and the most important.. Do not enforce Islam…”

My friends, these are the Islamic teachings and principles of dealing with those who kill Muslims during wartime, so imagine how merciful and peaceful Muslims’ behaviors and dealings are when it comes to peacetime! 

Moreover, note that, the abovementioned commandments given by Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) and the Caliphs later on after him…centuries ago are now considered as the basics and the main principles of the International Humanitarian Law or the Law of Armed Conflicts. This is our religion, this is our Islam.

Finally, there is a big difference between those in the video and ISIS, but unfortunately, media, politics and some countries’ benefits paint all with the same brush for the sake of distorting this religion. When a video is violent and accuses Islam, media runs and quickly starts to spread it under the name of Islam, but when a video shows the true message of Islam and how peaceful and merciful this religion is, they will ignore it! That’s a sad reality!
