Iran: A tribulation for those who have Iman

All praise is for Allāh, the Lord of the creation; May salutations of praise and peace be upon the seal of the Prophets and Messengers.

There has been much discussion regarding the theatrical play staged by Iran, through its exhibitive attack on the entity…

However, the most important matter that we should discuss and highlight, is the fitnah this has caused upon the beliefs of the Muslims and their religion.

To the extent that I noticed one of them had written – at the beginning of the attack – an apology to Iran due to his previous suspicions of their motives, however 6 hours after the staged attack had finished, he then returned to condemning Iran!

I then recalled the ḥadīth,

Intelligence will be removed from most of the people at that era, and insignificant worthless people will remain. Most of them will consider themselves to be of value, yet they will have no value…

The greatest aspects of this confusion are:

1. Overlooking the fact that Iran is a country of Shirk (polytheism) and idol-worship; it was established upon clear kufr (disbelief), and clear animosity to Allāh, his Messenger ﷺ and his religion. It has utilised all its resources to spread Shirk and misguidance around the world.

2. Forgetting that Iran has killed millions of Muslims, and displaced millions more; it has occupied four capital cities and destroyed scores of cities; the pain and loss it has inflicted upon Muslims in 40 years is more than what the Jewish state (Israel) has done in 75 years.

Unfortunately, most people are influenced by reactions and manipulated by events, and this demonstrates the importance of cultivating people upon the correct ‘aqīdah, nurturing tawḥīd in their hearts, and conveying Islamic knowledge…

O Allāh, preserve for us our tawḥīd, our imān, our religion and our intellects.

We seek refuge in you from tribulations, apparent and hidden.

العنوان: إيران: فتنة للذين آمنوا


الحمد لله رب العالمين، والصلاة والسلام على خاتم الأنبياء والمرسلين.

كثر الكلام في المسرحية الهزلية التي لعبتها إيران بالهجوم الاستعراضي على الكيان…

وأعظم ما ينبغي أن نتكلم فيه وننبه إليه فتنة ما جرى على عقائد المسلمين ودينهم…

رأيت أحدهم كتب في بداية الهجوم اعتذارا لإيران لأنه أساء الظن فيها… وبعد ست ساعات لما انتهت اللعبة عاد إلى التشنيع على إيران…

فتذكرت الحديث: “تنزع عقول أهل ذلك الزمان، ويخلف له هباء من الناس، يحسب أكثرهم أنهم على شيء، وليسوا على شيء”

أعظم ما في هذه الفتنة:

١ – تجاهل أن إيران دولة وثنية شركية، قامت على الكفر البواح والعداء الصريح لله ولرسوله ولدينه، وسخرت كل إمكانياتها لنشر الشرك والزندقة في العالم.

٢ – وتناسي أنها قتلت ملايين المسلمين وهجرت ملايين، واحتلت أربع عواصم، ودمرت عشرات المدن، وفعلت بالمسلمين خلال ٤٠ سنة ما لم تفعله دولة اليهود في ٧٥ سنة.

وأكثر الناس تؤثر فيهم المواقف وتتلاعب بهم الحوادث.

من هنا تظهر أهمية التربية على العقيدة الصحيحة وغرس التوحيد في القلوب ونشر العلم الشرعي….

اللهم احفظ علينا توحيدنا وإيماننا وديننا وعقولنا ، ونعوذ بك من الفتن ما ظهر منها وما بطن.
