The importance of establishing justice and avoiding any kind of wrongdoing is so great in the Shareeah that ibn Taymiyah in Majmoo’ concluded that “Allaah would establish and support a just nation even if it were non-Muslim while He would not establish and support an oppressive nation, even if it were Muslim.” Allaah does not give success to the oppressed, He says: “Verily, the people who commit dhulm (oppression) will never be successful” Qur’an 6:21. He does not like them: “And Allaah does not like those who commit dhulm” Qur’an 3:57
The Muslims are pretty much concerned about the happenings in Myanmar and in all parts of the world where Muslims live and are facing persecution because they are not restricted by any geographical boundary, the Islamic brotherhood transcend beyond all physical boundaries, it is spiritually rooted. It is sufficient to note the authentic hadith from the Prophet (peace be upon him): “The believers, in their mutual mercy, love and compassion, are like a (single) body; if one part of it feels pain, the rest of the body will join it in staying awake and suffering fever.”
We call on the leaders of the Muslim world to rise to the occasion to ensure that this carnage and unprecedented massacre against the Rohingyas is brought to a halt and justice be served against the perpetrators. The Muslim world must through her foreign mission form a coalition of a common voice to ensure that justice be served against those championing the affairs of Myanmar Military. The Rohingyas are Muslims like us, humans like us and most be protected. What are we doing as individuals? Do we pray for the Rohingyas in our Sujud – prostration? have we stood up at night to offer Tahajjud and cry out to Allaah not because of wealth or power but just because of the oppressed Muslims?
The Muslims must not become psychologically despondent, Allaah Exalted be He, is fully Aware of what is happening and will always aid the believers and provide succor for them. The Prophet (peace be upon him) said: “Allaah gives respite to one who commits dhulm (oppression) but when He seizes him, He never releases him.” Then the Prophet (peace be upon him) recited the verse, “Such is the seizing of your Lord when He seizes the [population of] towns. Verily, His seizing is painful and severe” Qur’an 11: 102. Recorded by al-Bukhari.
To say that there is a Nobel Peace Prize winner, Aung San Suu Kyi living there and witnessing this carnage is the biggest joke of 21st century.
