“The Reason 9/11 Was a Justified Attack”
I am new to this forum. I’m posting here because, Alhamdulilah, I’ve finally found a forum where I can speak of my support for Shaykh Bin Laden and his organization. I was very delighted to have stumbled upon this forum about a month ago – to my memory, I found it by accident. I immedietely signed up for this account, and it wasn’t until now that I found out it had been activated. I think that I may be able to contribute some good thought here. But mainly, I am posting because I am new to the Al Qaeda ideology and I have questions – there are things I don’t understand. My questions are very in-depth, and I doubt many of you will know the answers, but perhaps you’ll be able to give me some good educated guesses.
I will tell you some about myself – but I think you’ll understand, there is much I won’t tell, like the country where I live and etc. What I can say is that I reverted to Islam 3 years ago Alhamdulilah, coming from a somewhat Christian background and a typical Western family. Perhaps if I had posted here back then, 3 years ago, you would have saved me some trouble; Upon coming to Islam, my love for the Mujahideen was beginning, but conspiracy theorists and Westernized Muslims crushed that faith very early. This led to great confusion within my Iman that which I cannot begin to go into detail. Let me summarize – if I would have posted here 1 year ago, I don’t think I would have been liked. My view on Islam and current events had become so polluted that I had condemned the Mujahideen, Al Qaeda paticularly. Not just that, but I nearly converted to Shia Islam!
It was realizing how corrupt Shia Islam is that brought me back on the right track and discovering the truth and reality of current world events. Oh, I am still confused about some things. I don’t have many Muslims around me, and I don’t even know what Madhab to follow. Thus, I consider the Al Qaeda ideology to be my Madhab, and Usama Bin Laden to be my Shaykh (although I have no connection or relation to them). :-p This, however, might not be the case if I knew more about the doctrines of Al Qaeda and their rulings on other subjects besides Jihad. This is what I hope you can teach me.
I must say – ever since supporting these Mujahideen, my Iman has been stronger than ever and I am more strict and closer to the Sunnah. I’m sure some of this sounds confusing to you, so I hope you can learn more about me through my future posts In’Sha’Allah!
For my first official post here, I have an article I wrote several months ago about why 9/11 was a justified attack. Please let me know how you like it.
First, here are some points to be made:
– Muslims should not suppress dialog on 9/11, even if that dialog is pro-of such events, since the taboo stigma attached to 9/11 is something created by the terrorist United States, and because 9/11, when looked at as an attack and a loss of life, is nothing in comparison to what our brothers and sister go through in the Middle East, nor is it anything compared to other bloodbaths throughout history. Thus, the United States is using propaganda to justify treating those who praise the attack as criminals worse than the Nazis. Why should Muslims accommodate these allegations? Why should approval of 9/11 and Al Qaeda be grounds for dismissing one from mosques, political statuses, demonstrations, countries, forums, or even the entire Muslim Ummah?
– Considering the absence of a Khalifah, and the lack of approval thereof by those who are theoretically in power of today’s Ummah, Muslims have every right to ban together in groups and declare Jihad. With that point, it goes without saying that in order for such a group to function, someone must declare himself as leader of the group, even if doing so is not the favorable thing to do under Islamic terms (with so much corruption in the world, and no Khalifah, doing so is the only choice). Jihad is an individual duty.
– Al Qaeda is the only group that exists today which fights for all of Islam. All other groups designated as “terrorist” fight only for solo countries, or for basic concepts. No group, besides Al Qaeda, has reached the status to declare Jihad for the entire Ummah. Can we comprehend the meaning of this when we read the words of the Prophet Muhammad (SAW)?
– Even if the 9/11 attacks were not justifiable, those whom they were committed against rarely show regard for what our people go through. Why should we condemn 9/11 more than we condemn the injustices done towards other Muslims? The fact that Muslims do so today is a tragedy, and is the succession of the masterplan created by those who wish to suppress knowledge on the true evils being committed. We spend more time condemning our fellow Muslims who are doing Jihad, and even if they are wrong in the way they are conducting themselves, we should be condemning and showing more hostility towards our true enemies than anything else. Al Qaeda would not even exist if it were not for the evils the West has committed, and if it were not for the fact that the majority of Muslims are failing Islam today. Thus, it is no surprise that Al Qaeda as it is, is quite often very disorganized and disjointed.
– The leaders of Al Qaeda, in every way, have the knowledge and qualities of Scholars. Do you really think that what matters to Allah is that an individual is issued a (worldy) certificate which declares him as a Scholar? And why should we trust the institutions which issue such certificates today? Considering that these institutions are barely Islamic, as they do not tell us to take up arms and do Jihad (even though Muslims are more oppressed than ever before), we should not trust them at all. Jihad to them is only theoretical and they suppress the idea of it because their first priorities lie in answering to their Kafir governments and leaders. These supposed Sheikhs are issuing fatwas from air conditioned rooms and basking in the world’s most pleasurable delights, while the Mujahideen are suffering on the battlefield.
Now on to the actual report… I will summarize it for everyone, but I strongly suggest you read it for the proof that is given.
– Martyrdom operations do not qualify as suicide.
THE REASON 9/11 WAS A JUSTIFIED ATTACK
The Holy Qur’an is the main source for finding all truth and knowledge for the world and living in it. We must look to it for everything, including laws and guidelines for war, or, Jihad. This specific topic is one that the Qur’an stresses with importance stretching across barriers we cannot even comprehend. It is clear on the matter. It only becomes complicated and unclear when those with biases, hypocrisies, fears, and evil agendas decide to work only in favor of their own security and interests.
Muslims do this just as much as those who disbelieve in and blaspheme Islam. Islam is indeed a religion based around the need to create peace in the world. Many Muslims refuse to accept that this means fighting oppressors to create justice. They take verses about peace which look alluring to all of humanity and use these verses to condemn the idea of Holy War. They ignore all the verses from the Qur’an which condone and command the Muslims to goto war and fight evil. They say that Islam is against killing others, but they take this out of context. In reality, Islam is against unjust killing.
Allah tells us that we must kill criminals and has given us guidelines about when we must employ justice, as I will show you. The Muslims who deny this ignore a large chunk of the Qur’an. They have cut themselves off from all wisdom and will certainly be opponents of our comforters, Mahdi and Jesus, when they come, as they will make war with the world… something these Muslims hate.
Then there are those who want us to believe that Allah allowed his religion to be hijacked on September Eleventh, 2001. They say that Usama Bin Laden (may Allah be pleased with him) is a double agent working for America, as are his associates. They say that the most glorious attack – an attack against a monstrosity of a country which was in retaliation for a century of unanswered violence and death – was orchestrated, falsely under the name of God, to create a reason to attack his people – the Muslims.
But Allah would not allow something like that to happen.
Instead, the real issue is explaining to the ignorant why an attack like 9/11 is justified under Allah’s laws during these times we live in.
Firstly, everyone should know Islam’s stance on disbelief. It is known, and agreed upon by virtually every Islamic Scholar, that those who disbelieve in Allah, his Prophets, and his Laws, are all deserving of ETERNAL punishments, which all are physical, and include things like being burned live, being forced to drink boiling substances, being crushed by giant boulders, and so on. So then, such a people are definitely deserving of a painful death.
However, this does not mean that Muslims are supposed to go around killing people for not accepting Islam. No, we (ie, the Islamic authorities) are supposed to put to death those who harm Islam. As the Qur’an says:
The punishment of those who wage war against Allah and His Messenger, and strive with might and main for mischief through the land is: execution, or crucifixion, or the cutting off of hands and feet from opposite sides, or exile from the land: that is their disgrace in this world, and a heavy punishment is theirs in the Hereafter; Except for those who repent before they fall into your power: in that case, know that Allah is Oft-forgiving, Most Merciful. (5:33-34)
When disbelievers are killed in Jihad, the Qur’an states that it was not us who killed them, but Allah:
O you who believe! when you meet those who disbelieve marching for war, then turn not your backs to them. And whoever shall turn his back to them on that day– unless he turn aside for the sake of fighting or withdraws to a company– then he, indeed, becomes deserving of Allah’s wrath, and his abode is hell; and an evil destination shall it be. So you did not slay them, but it was Allah Who slew them, and you did not smite when you smote (the enemy), but it was Allah Who smote, and that He might confer upon the believers a good gift from Himself; surely Allah is Hearing, Knowing. (8:15-17)
Thus, it is Allah who punishes and kills. Every Muslim is a slave and tool of Allah’s for him to conduct his plans. This is what frightens so many people about 9/11, that nineteen men would willingly give their lives to kill others. They realize that it is very rare for someone to do this for their own interests, so when they see people giving their lives for God, religion begins to look like a cult. In reality, this sacrifice is the most powerful. We see that humans, in the vast majority, will only face death willingly if it is for the sake of God. This is not ugly; it is actually one of the most beautiful things in the world.
Suicide may be condemned in Islam, but suicide is clearly not the same thing as attacks which require one to donate his life to Islam. Muslims have been called to war by Allah. When a Muslim martyrs himself to kill the enemy, it was not his choice, it was Allah’s choice. Allah has used that Muslim to kill the friends of Satan. That Muslim will be rewarded in the hereafter for having his life taken by Allah for Jihad. He did not commit suicide. Those who commit suicide kill themselves because they are tired of life and want the easy way out, even if it means ending their lives without permission from Allah. This is not what a suicide bomber does. The suicide bomber has donated his life to Islam, to the Muslims, to Allah – in order to kill the aggressors and aide the greater good.
The reality is that unless those nineteen men (May Allah give pleasures, delights, and young Maidens to them all) gave their lives for Jihad, 9/11 would have been an impossible attack to pull off. The Muslims who are willing to do Jihad just do not have those resources. So today for Muslims to give their lives for Jihad, is often the only option. It is more effective and stunning, especially in the case of 9/11, than throwing bombs or going around shooting people. Ground attacks are simply insufficient as much of the time in this modern age and the enemy has more resources than us. Thus we must hit them where it hurts: Their economy and the politicians themselves.
The situation has then become clear: If directly giving our lives for Jihad is the only way we can fight, “Suicide” operations become mandatory, since Jihad is always mandatory and we know from our Islamic sources that Jihad is perpetual. If we don’t give our lives for this, the enemy will continue the aggression, and not only that – they would kill us in battle even if we fought them only hand-to-hand. Swords or guns, it doesn’t matter. None the less, it’s clear that the root source for suicide bombing is not Islam – but Judaism and Christianity, both of which have a story about a Prophet named Samson who killed his enemies (them, their wives, and children) in a situation which also meant killing himself. This is in the Bible, a book which praises Samson’s deed as a Noble action. Christians and Jews must then ask themselves what their problem is with Suicide bombing.
“And fight in the way of Allah with those who fight with you, and do not exceed the limits, surely Allah does not love those who exceed the limits. And kill them wherever you find them, and drive them out from whence they drove you out, and persecution is severer than slaughter, and do not fight with them at the Sacred Mosque until they fight with you in it, but if they do fight you, then slay them; such is the recompense of the unbelievers.” (2:190-191)
“… All Sacred Things are under the law of retaliation. Whoever then acts aggressively against you, retaliate, inflict injury upon the perpetrator according to what he has inflicted upon you…” (2:194)
“And if you take your turn, then retaliate with the like of that with which you were afflicted; but if you are patient, it will certainly be best for those who are patient.” (16:126)
Bare witness to the Qur’an’s clear and unadulterated commandment to make war with the oppressors with the same intensity as they fight us with. We can launch bombs at them when they launch at us. If we cannot do this, how else are we supposed to fight back and protect our cities from continuous bombings? A perfect example of this is the 2006 war between Israel and Lebanon, a war with which victory was granted to the Lebanese. If the army of Hizbollah would not have launched bombs back, Lebanon certainly have perished and been colonized at the hands of the Zionist forces. 9/11, on the other hand, was not a ticket to a victory, but a small retaliation for continuous oppression, as Sheikh Bin Laden (may Allah be pleased with him) said: it was like a Ram butting a vicious Wolf in order to protect its young.
These attacks are particularly condoned by Allah because the oppressors have killed the children and civilians of the Muslims time and time again. In fact, they have specifically targeted our civilians. This doesn’t mean that we round up disbelieving women and children one by one and shoot them dead, as has been done to us, but it does mean that launching bombs back at the oppressor is allowed, even if innocent civilians are being killed. The Muslims will stop fighting as soon as the aggression against them stops, and our lands have been liberated.
The Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) may have said in a few scattered Hadith not to kill women and children, but this was pure guidance for the battlefield. Not only was it under the pretense that the disbelievers would not target our civilians, but that the Muslims would be able to fight them without killing their civilians. The Qur’an has given the guideline of the law of retaliation, and it, the pure book of Allah, has the final word.
However, the reality is that 9/11 was not an attack on civilians. It was an attack on corrupt institutions; America’s economy, which is financing aggression against the Muslims, and the politicians who give the orders for the aggression. If civilians, whoever they may be, goto these places to be attacked, and bring their children along, they are at fault for being there. These are places of sin, and all religions teach that there will be consequences both in this life and the next for associating oneself with sin. Many, if not all religions, also teach that a parent can be punished by losing his or her kids, such is the story of the Prophet Job in the Bible.
The fact remains, however, that most Westerners are guilty of crimes and are combatants who fight the Muslims, according to Islamic law. We already know that the punishment for waging war against Allah and his Messenger (peace be upon him) can be carried out in a number of ways, including death. And the actions of the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) and his companions show us that the meaning of waging such a war is not only done just by physically battling the Muslims, but by slandering Islam, supporting oppressors, or financing such terror. Islamic law does not in actuality recognize civilians in a time of war. Islamic law divided people into two groups during war – combatants and non-combatants.
Westerners have given the Muslims all the logical Islamic reasons to fight them, as they wage war against Islam in many ways. Many of them believe it is their duty to listen to their governments, and many even support their governments. A good percentage of those who do not do this still finance crusades against Muslims by willingly paying their taxes which fund the aggression. On top of this, the most important point is that their governments are all elected into power by a majority’s vote. Westerners a like have given approval of their politicians’ actions by putting them into power. Thus, they are responsible for the actions of their politicians. The situation would be different if the majority of these people refused to vote in elections and rioted against their governments. But this is not the case. They fight Islam with their beliefs.
Because of these reasons, the Muslims have been ordered to fight and punish them. This is also why it is justifiable to kill all Western people who are on the Muslim lands, and especially why all the people living on the land of Israel which once belonged to Palestine can be killed – the Qur’an, as previously quoted, says to kill the invaders wherever we can find them. In an honorable situation, however, the Islamic thing to do would be to spare the women and children. But all honor has been taken from the Muslims. We no longer dictate the means of war as we did in the past. Instead, we have been weakened, and we have been forced to use your dirty tools of slaughter, invented by Westerners; guns and bombs
Some arguments state that, like in the fate Allah gave to Pakistani politician Benazir Bhutto, Islam does not ever condone the death of a woman. This is blatantly false as it is stupid. In Islam, women are equal to men in the sight of Allah and are subject to the same punishments as men. In the time of the Prophet (peace be upon him), most, if not all women were of civilian class which is why the Prophet (peace be upon him) disapproved of killing them. Of course, it’s also despicable if a woman is killed while pregnant, but if a woman decides to fight Islam while pregnant, who’s fault is it if her unborn child is incidentally killed? We see from our Hadith that the Prophet (peace be upon him) did put to death guilty women, rightfully so:
Sunan Abu Dawud
Sunan Abu Dawud:
Many Muslims who are unwilling to face the reality which burdens us today ask “What about Muslims who died on 9/11”? They are unwilling to see the truth that many Muslims living in the West and elsewhere have become Apostate (Kuffar), supporting their governments, and engaging in unIslamic politics and elections. They have left the fold of Islam to support the way of life of the disbelievers and their leaders who do not rule by Islamic law (Shar’iah).
Sunan Abu Dawud –
Sahih Bukhari –
The Muslims who live in fear of “terrorist” attacks as the disbelievers do forget that living in the land of disbelievers is a sin, and that the Qur’an tells us to migrate for the sake of Allah to a believing land. Even further, they put themselves at risk during a time of war by living in the countries they do. A Muslim taking these risks should understand that they might be killed in an attack against the oppressors. It could even happen to me! But I am not scared of such a thing as it would be for the sake of Allah.
Yes, America may have temporarily benefited from 9/11 by invading Muslim lands and increasing their own security and profits, but their economy also had significant losses that day, and their was a great retaliation against guilty parties. Not to mention the statement that was made. It was revolutionary. They cannot win the war they are in either. Sheikh Usama Bin Laden (may Allah be pleased with him) started a chain of events which will soon bring an abrupt ending to all injustice on the Earth.
One of the most popular arguments against the justification of 9/11 stems from the most simplistic and pathetic arguments, all based on personal woes, such as “What if I’m killed in one of these attacks!”, “What if my family were killed on 9/11?”. These are all selfish ways to justify their own security. The naysayers only want to create an excuse for their country to do whatever it wishes, with no consequences. Muslims even do this because they prefer their Democracies, Republics, Capitalisms, Economies, and Dictatorships over that of a Shar’iah-based country.
Humanity needs to start supporting humanity; that is, to support the side of the oppressed – the side of those who do righteous war in the name of spreading peace upon the world, not in the name of conflict to increase one’s wealth or power.
The enemy Crusaders (Americans, Jews, British) have setup dictators and false-flag governments in virtually all our countries during the crusades. They have exposed our people to gambling, prostitution, pollution, and materialism, and also established military bases on our land. They have perpetrated atrocities all throughout the world, in Sudan, Kashmir, Iraq, and elsewhere. Then there’s the fact that they stole Holy Land from the Palestinians and gave it to the Jews. They thought it would end there and that they could then live-out their definition of peace while our lands lack Islam. But no. The Mujahideen attacked them and brought them knee-deep into wars they cannot win in Afghanistan and Iraq. You can we sure they (the Crusaders) won’t stop there either. Soon their military will be defunct and their economies bankrupt. We will win.
The armies of Islam (Mujahideen) are not Angels, they are humans, and they do make mistakes. 9/11, however, was not one of them. The beauty of it was that it was not just an attack on oppressors, but an attack on a corrupt way of life. The collapse of their man-made structures and their papers they care so much about being tossed around to and fro in ashes symbolize the destruction of what they stand for. Allahu Akbar.
