The extremely delicate situation in Syria, where the on-going civil war has consumed over 1,00,000 people and rendered millions into refugees and internally displaced persons, has created a mounting fear psychosis in the entire Middle East that a humongous war is in the offing, especially in the aftermath of the US declaration of intent at military intervention. While the regime of President Bashar Al Assad has come under a cloud of accusation of gassing its own people, the “humanitarian imperialists” who are proactive to ‘teach a lesson’ to the regime also face a credibility-deficit/crisis. As the US seek to use military force in Syria, its dreadful and despicable record of duplicitous dealings in matters of war and state terrorism in the past remind us of the devastating consequences the new war will entail for all people who are going to be caught up in it. A western war in Syria will only be putting a match to the tinterbox, engulfing the whole region and the wider Islamic world and beyond into a quagmire of unimaginable proportions.
In the last decade of the Divine Manifestation, Allah (twa) has informed His Khalifa (the Khalifatullah) Hadhrat Munir Ahmad Azim Sahib (atba) of Mauritius several times about the internal and external threats the Muslim Ummah will face and taught him special prayers for the believers to recite in these troubled times. In a Speech on September 09, 2013 the Khalifatullah (atba) spoke on the escalating Syrian situation and the ominous signs of a World War staring at mankind, in the backdrop of the prophecies of the Promised Massih Hadhrat Ahmad (as).
Read the Extracts from the Speech:
The Syrian Situation
With the rise of the Arab Spring, the dictatorial presidency and government of Syria have been under fire since March 2011, causing a new wave of fervent cries for democracy instead of dictatorship. President Bashar Al-Assad’s Political Party and family have ruled the country ever since the 70s and now, the Syrian civilians are demanding a break from the party and family rule. They want to choose their own leader and government which is a very understandable matter. But Bashar Al-Assad is not ready to comply with the demands of his people which just posed a threat to peace in Syria, thus the civil war.
The main ally of Syria, Russia has again called on the international community to ‘prudence’. Attempts to bypass the Security Council, once again create artificial and unfounded pretexts for military intervention in the region will have catastrophic consequences for other countries in the Middle East and North Africa.
At a press conference, the Syrian Minister of Foreign Affairs Walid Muallim, whose regime is accused by the opposition and some Western countries to have used chemical weapons, insisted that his country would defend itself in case of strikes. According to them, they have two options: either to accept defeat or defend themselves. And they prefer the second alternative as best: “We will defend ourselves”, he said.
A War on Shaky Grounds
But with the coming of the countries either to help the protestors or be against them, and thus to help the Syrian Government in stopping this rise of protests, we come to shaky grounds. To espouse the dictatorship in place is definitely out of the question, but to go to the extent of creating an atmosphere of war and a psychosis, a fear which threatens to engulf the whole world is condemnable.
The United States of America under the head of its President Barack Hussein Obama and his government are all set to implement military strikes on Syria. They are striving to justify their decision taking under their wing the approval of such countries like Australia, Canada, France, Italy, Japan, South Korea, Saudi Arabia, Spain, Turkey and the United Kingdom. Each has a say on the probable use of chemical weapons by the Syrian Government on its civilians as of 21 August 2013.
“We are ready to go,” said the U.S. (Defence) Secretary (Chuck Hagel). He added that the United States would soon submit evidence of use of chemical weapons by the Syrian regime of Bashar Al-Assad. Yet nothing to this date is proved. Those who are ready to side with the U.S. are now not sure if the step is right in going for military actions in Syria. They seem to forget the massacres which have befell America in terms of money, time and soldiers back in Iraq and Afghanistan. Indeed that was the Might of Allah speaking on a supposed Super-Power who had in mind to control the world, especially the Muslim world, and establish the reign of their false doctrines.
United States as the Global Policeman
When President Barack Hussein Obama was first reluctant to intervene in the civil war in Syria, why then he is adamant to come forward with “military strikes” against Syria. Seeking to defend the citizens of a country against a harmful government is one thing but surely the U.S. has a hidden agenda. He uses such arguments as chemical weapons when America itself used chemical weapons in the past. He advances “reasons” to protect the Syrian civilians but is it not the body of the U.S.A. that he seeks to protect? Fear of chemical weapons used by a country is in actuality, but does the U.S. look at the own precautions it took when reinforcing its own security? It wishes to disarm other countries while reinforcing its own on the pretext of peace. When Iran boldly say that it will continue with the production of its nuclear weapons, this alarmed the western world, for then how could they “control” the Arab countries, thus Islam(ic countries) if one by one they start to rise up against the “supremacy” or silent acceptance of the U.S. A. as International Judge?
State Terrorism by the USA
Since the year 2001-2002, I have warned the world against the threat which the U.S.A and its allies pose to the Muslim World. They wanted to invade Iraq and Afghanistan so as to mitigate the threat the latter represented. Be it Saddam Hussein or the Taliban, these were just an excuse for them to attack. In my sermon of 26 April 2002, I said:
“… As for the false pretext of “terrorism”, this is pure hypocrisy. The whole world recognises America (i.e. U.S.A) as the State of Terrorism by excellence. All those wars and deaths were due to its “military actions”: The Golf War (2,000,000 deaths), Vietnam, Panama, Korea, Philippines, Hiroshima (140,000 deaths) and Nagasaki (70,000 deaths).
This makes America (the U.S.A) THE War Criminal. Besides, it is the only country in the world which has used nuclear bombs against others and this happened twice. We cannot also forget the half million children who died due to embargo imposed on Iraq or the 17,500 civilians killed during the Invasion of Israel in Lebanon in 1982. The massive bombings against Afghanistan were without any legitimate proof and done without the authorisation of the United Nations, and this constitutes in itself a clear example of the Terrorism perpetrated by the U.S.A.
Thus, instead of us (Muslims) being terrorists, we are verily victims of the Terrorism of the U.S.A in all facets, be it military, political and economic.
Before such conjecture, it is not permissible for us to take the defensive or to let us be despaired by the misinformation which the international media is projecting. It is now clear that the media has joined forces with the infidels (Kuffar) in a campaign to denigrate and dirty Islam and the Muslims.
The War against Afghanistan or Palestine or any other Muslim people IS war against the Ummah as a whole. Thus, we must feel ourselves as in a state of war against the enemy and its allies. To show our solidarity for our brothers and sisters, we need to pray for them and show our hatred against the infidels.
We must condemn also the leaders of the Muslim World for their indifference and their treachery.
Allah warned us in the Quran: “And those who disbelieve are allies of one another. If you do not do so (i.e. Unite as one Body), there will be fitna (chaos) on earth and great corruption.” (8: 74)
Thus, only the ideological, political and geographic unity of the (Muslim) Ummah can put an end to all our problems, and give back the Ummah its honour and instil fear in the heart of the Kuffar (infidels).
… Oh my brothers and sisters I am telling you that the days are not far when the world shall witness Insha-Allah the destruction of the hegemony of America (U.S.A) and the other states of the Kuffar, whereby the Ummah shall make them pay dearly their savage aggression against humanity. The world, free of the slavery of capitalism shall at that moment witness the Justice of Islam…”
Ten years later, on 17 May 2012 during a speech made in the aftermath of Divine Revelations, I said the following about Syria. The statement as available on our official website is as thus:
“Syria: Bombings on Syria and multitudes of deaths. When Syria shall come back to itself (its senses), then bear in mind that the third world war is behind the door. The third world war shall be so violent that they (the infidels) shall destroy all the reserves of petrol of the Muslim Arab countries. They want to finish the riches vouchsafed by Allah to the Muslims. If the Muslims lose this favour, then it is partly because of their own faults, because they have given the non-believers priority and listened to them while ignoring Muslims like themselves and listened to the infidels to fight against and kill their Muslim brothers.
It is a pity. Do the Muslims know how many of their own Muslim brothers they have killed through their own fault (when they listened to the infidels)? Verily, they (the Muslims) have got all at their disposal: One God (Allah), one same Qibla, the best religion, the greatest prophet, the best Holy Book. They perform Hajj together, fast together during the month of Ramadan, and pray alike but then they take away the lives of their own Muslim brothers and sisters, and they consider some of them non-Muslims! When the infidels see this state of affairs, they seize this opportunity to abase Muslims all the more. …
“You believe or not, you follow me or not, everybody shall be drowned except those who believe and enter the arch along with me. The only thing that shall save you is your attachment to Allah and this Humble servant of Allah in this era.” No Ummah, no Muslim shall be saved with what is happening except with their reunification under the leadership of Allah and His Khalifatullah.”
The Prophecy on Universal War
Verily, the United States of America is playing is very bad role in the play of life. If it cared for victims of wars, why has it not sided with the poor victims of Palestine and sprung against the wrongs perpetrated by Israel upon Palestine? Indeed Israel invaded the territory of the Palestinians without any right and America (the U.S.) till date did nothing concrete to do justice to Palestine. Now, it suddenly has a urge to protect the Syrian Civilians? What about the other victims of wars and injustice in the other Muslim countries and elsewhere in the world?
If the President Obama persists in his call for military actions and if it is implemented, then bear in mind that the universal bloodshed which both Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad (as) has prophesised and which has been confirmed by Allah through the advent of this humble self, the Khalifatullah of this age and the Spiritual Promised Son of the Messiah (as), then the Third World War is not far. Indeed I see it as near and inevitable, for this bloodshed shall be an eye-opener for the Muslims to seek their saviour, the Chosen Man of God of their age.
Thus, Oh my dear brothers and sisters, for now, our brothers and sisters of Syria needs our help, and the best help we can extend to them is our prayers to Allah for them. During these two years, fighting and violence in Syria have caused more than 110,000 deaths. More than 4 million were forced to leave their homes, a quarter of them are fleeing the country. 8 millions of people need also our support and by the grace of Allah the Jamaat Ul Sahih Al Islam does not remain insensible to this cry for help. We sent some necessities to one of our brothers there so that he may distribute these to others. We must stand for them. They are of our own blood, the blood of Islam. If they suffer, we suffer and we need to strive through our financial means and our prayers to Allah that Allah have mercy upon them and decide what is in their best interest.
And let us not forget also our other Muslim brothers and sisters from Iraq, Iran, Egypt and Palestine and the other Muslim countries. May Allah open the eyes of Saudi Arabia so that it ceases to be “Saudi” and keep the blood of Islam and Arabia alive in them so that they cease to be traitors of their own religion! Insha-Allah, Ameen.
A Prayer against the Enemies of Islam
The following dua was revealed to this humble self back in 2002, and it was fervently read during our Safar Zikrullah in March 2003 for the defeat of the enemies of Islam and that of the Muslims.
“O Allah, the Revealer of the (Holy) Book, and the Mover of the clouds and the Defeater of the armies (of infidels), defeat them, and grant us victory over them. Oh the Almighty! Oh Allah, we plead with You to scatter their shots. Make the earth tremble under their feet and instill fear in their hearts. Oh Allah, Handicap them and blind them and send upon them epidemics and calamities. Oh Allah, divide their troops and their ranks and make their condition difficult and return back their plots against themselves. Show us the Manifestation of Your Power against them and make this become a lesson for others to come. Oh Allah! Make their destruction come quick and make their riches become spoils (of war) for the Muslims.” Ameen.
May Allah save the Muslims and Humanity against the evil-minded people. May Allah render clear the victory of Islam on all fronts, and may the traitors in Islam wake up from their long drugged sleep and take conscience that when all the Muslims shall be one, all Muslim countries as one united body, then nobody can finish off Islam and the Muslims. Insha-Allah. Ameen.
Jazak-Allah for your kind attention. Assalamualaikum Warahmatullah Wabarakaatuhu.
