A Critique of Bin Laden’s Letter to America

By Muhammad Yunus, New Age Islam

04 May 2017

(Co-author (Jointly with Ashfaque Ullah Syed), Essential Message of Islam, Amana Publications, USA, 2009)

A letter allegedly from Osama bin Laden was aired on-line addressed to American people, and later posted by Observer Worldview on November 24, 2002. It explains ‘why they are fighting’ as questioned by many in the Western world, what they are calling them to, and what they we want from them (Americans). The letter is posted by New Age Islam on April 27 last against the following link under the caption:

Bin Laden's 'Letter to America'


Possibly the letter has remained unanswered as America does not recognize OBL as any representative of, or spokesman for the Muslim world. Besides, in international politics and throughout history, those wielding absolute power never feel obliged to respond to the grievances of their weak opponents or adversaries, however genuine may be the grievances from their perspective.

This author is, however, obliged to post this commentary, as complete silence to any propositions may amount to admission of the propositions in the eyes of those who support or admire OBM or see much truth in his long list of charges.

My following commentary is of very general nature and is provoked by OBL’s claim under (3.e) that “American people cannot be innocent of all the crimes committed by the Americans and Jews against us” and the argument (3.f) that “whoever has killed our civilians, then we have the right to kill theirs.” 

In one word, OBL’s letter claims justification of mass killing of Americans by implicating the non-combatant civilians in his long list of crimes committed by America.

The object of this comment is to demonstrate, by piecing together various Qur’anic allusions that by no stretch of imagination can Qur’an justify mass killing or even killing a single civilian, deliberately or in a pre-meditated manner in peace time or times of war.

Since the Qur'an was recorded (orally and on indigenous writing materials) in full light of history and preserved verbatim to this day by an unbroken chain of memorizers, its testimony as tabled below remains above debate.  

During the first twelve years of the revelation (610-622), when the Prophet was stationed at his hometown, Mecca, his fellow-Meccans were bitterly opposed to, and enraged with him and found his claims to revelation outrageous and a monstrous lie. Since the prevalent clan ties prevented them from any recourse to violence against him, they captured and persecuted those converts who were weak and helpless (8:26, 85:10).Eventually, they conspired to confine him (to his home) or kill him or exile him (8:30).

And what was the Qur’an’s response to the twelve year- long bitter opposition and persecution?

It commands the Prophet to endure patiently what they (his enemies) say, to ignore their insults and to trust in God (26:217, 33:3, 33:48, 67:29), seek refuge in God (7:200, 41:36) and to  wage a peaceful struggle against them (the Meccans) with it (the Qur’an) (25:52).

Come the Medinite period of the revelation (622-632), the Meccans sent powerful armies to Medina during the first three years to annihilate the Prophet and the upcoming Muslim community. These led to the battles of Badr (624) and Uhud (625) which was followed up by a coordinated attack on Medina by a confederation of Arab armies that led to a long but unsuccessful siege of Medina (known as the battle of Trench (627). Each of these encounters posed the Muslims to the risk of extinction. But despite the risk, terror and trauma of total annihilation, the Prophet was never harsh or revengeful. He is seen to be lenient (at Badr) by taking captives (8:67) rather than killing them all as was normative for the era.  He was lenient with a faction of his followers (the hypocrites) that deserted him on way to the battlefield at Uhud (3:67), and forgave those who defied his orders and dashed off to collect booty leaving their battle-stations (3:152). He readily exempted others from defending Medina at the Trench war without verifying their excuses (33:13). No doubt, the period saw actions against the native Jewish tribes but those were provoked by repeated treaty violations and sedition that was designed to totally annihilate the Muslim community (33:10-15).

In the year 628 - following the Trench war, the Prophet undertook an unarmed journey to Mecca for pilgrimage. The nomadic Arabs who were weak in faith preferred to stay back (48:11), as they thought the Prophet and the believers would never be able to return to their families (48:12). The Prophet never took any action against them. The Prophet’s company was blocked from entering Mecca, but a peace treaty was signed (628) that stopped all hostilities.

Two years into the Peace Treaty, the Prophet proceeded to Mecca prepared for an armed encounter to take action against violation of Peace Treaty by a Meccan tribe. As the Muslims began to enter the city, the most fanatic among the Meccans harboured intense animosity – the fiery passion of the days of Ignorance, when God sent divine peace upon His Messenger and on the believers, and imposed on them the Word of restraint, as they were entitled to it and worthy of it (48:26). God withheld the hands of the Meccans from the Muslims and the hands of the Muslims from the Meccans (48:24).Thus, Mecca that was the abode of the most hostile enemies of the Prophet for more than two decades was integrated without any bloodshed.

The Prophet would have been within his rights to bring to justice the tormentors and killers of the unprotected converts during the Meccan period, execute the leaders of the tribes who had plotted to kill him, who attacked Medina and broke treaty alliances. But all he is reported to have said to a group of Meccans was: There is no blame upon you today. God will forgive you. He is the Most Merciful of the merciful (12:92) - words of forgiveness that in the Qur’an, Joseph had spoken to his brothers who had been unjust to him when he was a child.

In the ensuing days, the Meccans came in throngs to the Prophet to embrace the new faith (110:2), and the revelation reminded the Prophet to glorify God and seek His forgiveness (110:3).

Thus, the Qur’an commanded Muhammad to remain humble at the greatest and most unexpected missionary achievement of his life, and to seek forgiveness (for any feeling of arrogance or grandeur that might have assailed him).

 Finally over the last two years the Surah Tauba was revealed authorizing the Prophet and Muslim to kill such archetypes of defiance who broke their oaths (treaty obligations) after pledging them, and defamed their religion (9:12) and who had done all they could to drive the Messenger away (from Mecca) and were the first to attack (9:13). Finally, on the day of the Great hajj (631), the revelation gives an ultimatum of four months to the hostile pagans who were repeatedly breaking their treaty obligations (9:1-3). It commands the Muslims to kill them wherever they come upon them, capture them, besiege them, and lie in wait for them at every conceivable place (take all possible measures as advisable in warfare) after the expiry of the treaty period (9:5) unless they repented, kept up prayer and gave the Zakat (9:5, 9:11). However, the pagans who were honouring their treaty of peace and not helping anyone against the Muslims were to be given time until the treaty term expired (9:4). At the same time, those pagans who sought protection were to be given protection, until they heard the word of God and then to be delivered to a place of security (i.e. their tribal homelands, so that they were not harmed by any other victimized Muslim) (9:6).

The Qur’an reinforces its emphasis on eschewing hatred of erstwhile enemies and being just to them around the same period that the Surah Tauba was revealed:

You who believe, be upright before God as witnesses to justice, and let not the hatred of any people prompt you to detract from justice. Deal justly: this is nearest to heedfulness (Taqwa); and heed God. Surely God is informed of what you do” (5:8).

“... And let not the hatred of a people who (once) obstructed you from (entering the) Sacred House, lead you to be hostile. Therefore, help each other to virtue and uprightness and do not collaborate with each other in sin and enmity. Heed God, and (remember,) God is severe in punishment” (5:2).

“It may be that God will bring about love between you and those of them you (now) regard as your enemies. (Remember,) God is Able (to do anything) and God is Most Forgiving and Merciful (60:7). God does not forbid you to be virtuous and just to those who did not fight you over religion, nor drove you from your homelands. Indeed, God loves the just (60:8). God only forbids you to befriend those who fought against you over religion, and expelled you from your homelands, and backed (others) in your expulsion; and whoever befriends them – it is they who are unjust” (60:9).

NOW COMING TO OBL’S LETTER, the Qur’anic allusions to the Prophet’s mission listed in the letter relate to the closed historical corridor of the Prophet’s mission (610-632) and do not provide any basis or religious justification to:

i)       kill innocent people,

ii)      cherry pick the Qur’an’s directives to the Prophet engaged in defensive war and act on them in peace time,

iii)     treat non-combatant civilians as enemies,

iv)      to threateningly ask Americans to embrace Islam[the Qur’an forbids any compulsion in religion (2:256, 50:45, 88:21/22) and asks for inviting others to faith with wisdom and pleasant counselling (16:125)].

Besides OBL’s simulating the role of the Prophet, who only acted upon divine guidance, amounts to appropriating the greatest social, cultural, intellectual and religious revolution in human history that Islam represented into a gory episode of terrorism that was aimed at destroying human civilization. This sounds sweeping and needs a little elaboration.

By the time the Prophet died, he brought practically the whole of Arabia in the fold of Islam – all voluntarily as the Qur’an does not give any evidence of the Prophet forcing a single person to convert to Islam or authorizing the killing of a single person on religious grounds. But by the time, Osama bin Laden died, he probably brought none in the fold of Islam and killed thousands of innocent people on fake religious justification.

In the immediate aftermath of the Prophet’s death, the Arabs were transformed from a group of marauding tribes, languishing in backwaters of civilization with no culture of reading, writing or formal education, no notion of universal justice, human rights, no political identity, and, among other things, no respect or regard for the women and the downtrodden humanity into founders of great dynasties, torch bearers of civilization, champions of art, culture and education, and emblems of justice, equity, human rights, women’s emancipation, and compassion for the downtrodden humanity. What has befallen the Muslim community in the aftermath of OBL’s death needs no elaboration. The Muslim community that was struggling to regain a firm foothold in the post-colonial modern era, has suffered a hard blow. By any civilisational yardstick, the aftermath of OBM’s death has brought great death and destruction to Muslim masses and lands.

So let no one be carried away by OBM’s list of injustices and atrocities befalling millions of Muslims of the world, including women and children and especially the people of Palestine to justify his mission of terrorism or to confuse terrorism with Islam. Islam is a religion of peace and pluralism as expounded at the strength of the Qur’an in the article referenced below. Throughout its history, it has won converts on its merit as a religion that envisions “universal brotherhood of humanity that will allow people of diverse faith, culture, colour and language to live together, to know each other and assist each other, to make life easy and peaceful for all human beings” [2]

On a historical note Osama assumes the role of the supreme authority in the Muslim world with the mission to remove the leaders who had allegedly become the agents of America and to install Sharia Law across the Muslim world. In other words, he wants to bring about the collapse of American domination and Western civilization and a resurgence of Islamic power and civilization of some two centuries ago. He utterly fails to realize that it is not for a man or a band of trigger happy religious zealots to drastically change the course of history. Human history has a mighty inertia and gargantuan momentum. Any localized eruption of violence or act of terror cannot change its course as much as “a few bushes cannot alter the direction of the wind or a few fishes cannot stem the flow of a river.” (Quoted from Chiragh Dehlvi). Any quantum change in a large swath of land – that is a nation can take long. Europe took more than two centuries to colonize the Muslim lands. They achieved this by explosive growth of knowledge and technology that is the greatest arsenal of nations. Therefore, a tiny band of gun wielding religious zealots or suicide bombers, acutely wanting in knowledge, technology and resources cannot not destroy America – it can only terrorize people for a little while (in historical terms) without making any dent in the course of history. This is not to defend America but to speak the truth which is always bitter. But people who live in delusion can do great harm to themselves and their community unless they come to senses and open their eyes to the realities of life.   

Finally, it is worth adding that the Islamic world has seen crises and violence of far greater magnitude than the letter showcases. Beginning with the bloody and prolonged civil war during the transition from Rightly Guided Caliphs to Umayyads, Islamic history is punctuated with catastrophic violence  - the bloody transition from Umayyads to Abbaside dynasty; the tyranny of the Kharijites (lasting for almost two centuries), the gradual destruction of Islamic civilizations in Spain, southern European islands, the horrors of crusades and Mongol invasion, the bloody defeats at the hands of colonizers, let alone wars of succession and last but not least, the agonizing demise of Islamic Caliphate (with the collapse of Ottoman Empire). So to project the pre-9/11 era as the worst of times in Islamic history is far from accurate.

Paradoxically, in the year preceding the 9/11, America had authorized NATO’s bombing of Yugoslavia – a Christian land, to save the Albanian Muslims from extinction. The bombing lasting some three months (March 24 – June 10, 1999) had destroyed bridges, industrial plants, public buildings, private businesses, as well as barracks and military installations in addition to taking some 500 lives. Given the fact that both Russia and China were opposed to any military intervention and were set to veto any Security Council Resolution for air strikes, America and its European allies’ full scale military action against a Christian land to save a Muslim population from extinction in a faraway corner of Europe completely dismisses the notion of America/ Americans being inimical to the Muslims.

In sum, no matter the sufferings of Muslims under occupied lands and at other regions of the world, it will be utterly wrong to assume that America is an enemy of Islam or all Americans are opposed to Muslims. There is no doubt, about a rising tide of Islamophobia, but a vast section of the American/ Western population does sympathize with Muslims as reflected by their spontaneous protest against President Trump’s Executive Order banning travel to America from seven predominantly Muslim countries [3], and acceptance of millions of refuges from Muslim lands [4].Hence OBM’s letter under review has no leg to stand on and is in fact no more than an attempt to appropriate the Prophet’s mission of peace, forgiveness and reconciliation for terrorizing people and repelling them away from Islam, rather than offering peace and compassion and inviting people to Islam.

  • Hats Off is probably ignorant of the extreme violence in the past of other religions (including atheism). He is also unaware of the fact that roughly the same percentage of Muslims are peaceful as the percentages of most other religions. His hatred of Muslims seems to determine all his perceptions.

    By Ghulam Mohiyuddin - 6/2/2017 3:29:26 PM

  • hatts off it is better to show our presence less, which you did for some time, you will see this Muslim commentators will write against each other. Which they indeed do. 

    Vak( word) yudh(war) is form of violence(mention nicely in Upanishad)which converts into the physical war, Islamic( or Muslim whichever they are now synonyms) history is full of that. That is the reason Muslims when offers the path of conversion, it is said that first try to explain kafir/polytheist/ Dhimmi what is Islam, do Dawah than if he/she not ready to accept the Dawah then tell kafir/polytheistic/Dhimmi that be ready to fight now, it is nothing more than our Indian street goons, they do same,,accept their supremacy.

  • nothing can vilify islam as much as their past and their violent present and the apologists and enablers of islamic supremacism masquerading as "moderates". rochdale is the stereotype.

    wolves in sheep's clothing. while the moderates justify islamic textual barabrism, their brothers in arms blow themselves up and make sex slaves of small white english girls - not to mention the yazidis.

    By hats off! - 6/2/2017 9:58:49 AM

  • Poor Hats Off is like a broken record! He has to find something or the other to vilify Muslims and to demand their punishment. Is it a pathological obsession?

    By Ghulam Mohiyuddin - 6/1/2017 10:51:36 PM

  • the wars waged by the islamic invaders of (persia, syria, egypt and) india also need to be held to account. just as the wars waged by the western countries.

    the law of equality implies that all invaders and war mongers are guilty. including those waged by the fledgling islam.

    the thousands and thousands of slaves from the islamic conquest are just the collateral damage. nothing to gawk at here. keep the line moving!

    the law equality is a shape-shifting beast.

    By hats off! - 6/1/2017 7:45:26 AM

  • The wars that the US has waged in Afghanistan and Iraq has killed civilians in thousands, many of them being women and children. They call it collateral damage. If the war was against another super power equally matched, the response would have been to cause an equal amount of collateral damage. No questions would then have been asked about the retaliatory strikes causing "collateral damage" and the morality of such action. The credible threat of an equal response, prevents "collateral damage" from being inflicted. And if this had happened, we wouldn't be discussing the morality of the counter attack when the opposing power was equally powerful.

     However, the opposing side is in no position to wage war on an equal footing and therefore certain individuals and organizations have taken it upon themselves to cause "collateral damage" through deliberate strikes. The Quran does not permit individuals or a group of individuals from waging a war and such acts are even otherwise foolish as they have no real impact. However, the Quran does not prevent a ruler of a country from waging war and inflicting retaliatory strikes even to cause an equal amount of collateral damage.

     The following two verses apparently cover tribal justice when someone from a tribe is killed by someone from another tribe. The retaliation is against the tribe in equal measure. The retaliation does not involve identifying, apprehending and punishing the murderer but causing an “equal” damage to the other side. If a free man from a tribe is killed, a free man from the other tribe is killed in retaliation

     (2:178) O ye who believe! the law of equality is prescribed to you in cases of murder: the free for the free, the slave for the slave, the woman for the woman. But if any remission is made by the brother of the slain, then grant any reasonable demand, and compensate him with handsome gratitude, this is a concession and a Mercy from your Lord. After this whoever exceeds the limits shall be in grave penalty.

    (179) In the Law of Equality there is (saving of) Life to you, o ye men of understanding; that ye may restrain yourselves.

    The Law of Equality is precisely to put a restraint on both sides from indulging in wanton killing.

  • Dear Royal j

    Thank you so much for reading the article. Osama dead is al-Bagdadi alive with so many of his die-hard followers all over the world. So refuting OBL is a very risky venture. And since he is well versed in the Qur'an, quotes from it and eloquently presents the truth regarding the fallout of America foreign policy, it becomes all the more difficult to refute him - somewhat like growing flower in barren desert. Now if only few people read it, you don't get the thrill of a big catch. Thank you. 

    By muhammd yunus - 5/31/2017 8:16:40 PM

  • Osama is handsome, tall (6’5”), soft spoken, a millionaire, and very gentle with his five wives and 26 children, like his billionaire father who had ten wives and 40-50 children,  but badly brought up with Wahhabi ideology. There was nothing creative in his thinking and everything destructive.

    Mohammad (Mr. Yunus), to his credit, had eloquently refuted the claims of Osama.

    The argument, concerning the Jews, put forward by bin Laden is lopsided. He says “It is the Muslims who are the inheritors of Moses, and the inheritors of the real Torah. If the followers of Moses have been promised a right to Palestine in the Torah, then the Muslims are the worthy nation of this”.  This is flawed argument based on IF and THEN and starting an unending war on this premise is nothing but criminal. Jews have every right to claim that Abraham, Moses, David and Jesus were Jewish. The main theme of their holy book is that God had delivered the Jewish people from Egyptian slavery and settled them in the ‘promised land’, which is the present day Israel.

    Osama’s world view is flawed, just as Wahhabi Saudis’.  They did not anticipate that the Wahhabi ideology would create so many terrorists movements around the world. They did not foresee that the Wahhabi ideology would create horrendous killings among Muslims. The worst is they never expected that the Wahhabi ideology would make Yemen to attack their holy country Saudi Arabia.  So much is their flawed world view. Likewise many Muslims go to sleep thinking of ‘glad tidings’ and the world caliphate. These foolish Muslims do not know that the world caliphate would become like Pakistan, where all the Shias, all the Ahmadis, all the Sufis would be massacred, not to mention the dirty kafirs like Christians, Hindus, Buddhists, atheists and animists.

     Osama’s world view is so flawed that he couldn’t see an example, that the Christian West, whose spiritual leader was cruelly murdered on the cross by the Jews, still they maintained a good relationship with the Jews. It is expedient for the West to be jolly happy with 1,600 million Muslims and to join hands with them against the tiny Israel. But, morally, it is not the right thing to do, since they help create Israel after the massacre of six million Jews by the Nazis. Osama is the product of Saudi wahhabism

  • Dear Zuma,

    You make good point. Hope you read the whole article on which you have, however, not commented. Thanks

    By muhammd yunus - 5/18/2017 5:51:09 AM

  • Quran  18:74 forbids Muslims to kill innocent people:
    (سورة الكهف, Al-Kahf, Chapter #18, Verse #74)-Mohshin Khan translation:
    Then they both proceeded, till they met a boy, and he (Khidr) killed him. Musa (Moses) said: "Have you killed an innocent person who had killed none? Verily, you have committed a thing Nukr (a great Munkar - prohibited, evil, dreadful thing)!"
    By zuma - 5/18/2017 5:49:09 AM

  • The following is the extract from the above statements:
    ‘My following commentary is of very general nature and is provoked by OBL’s claim under (3.e) that “American people cannot be innocent of all the crimes committed by the Americans and Jews against us” and the argument (3.f) that “whoever has killed our civilians, then we have the right to kill theirs.” 
    My comment: All the crimes that had been committed by Americans and Jews against Muslims were many years ago.  Or, it possibly refers to the time when Israel became independence.  Currently, American people do not killed any innocent people.  As they do not kill any innocent people, Muslims should cease to revenge against them.
    Quran 2:193 (Yusuf Ali translation), “And fight them on until there is no more Tumult or oppression, and there prevail justice and faith in Allah; but if they cease, Let there be no hostility except to those who practise oppression.”
    The phrase, practice oppression, in Quran 2:193 refers to those people who continuously to oppress Muslims.  As the phrase, if they cease, is mentioned in Quran 2:193 (Yusuf Ali translation) with the phrase, Let there be no hostility, it implies that Muslims should not have hostility against non-Muslims if they cease in fighting.  When this phrase, let there be no hostility, in Quran 2:193 is applied to this modern world, it would mean that Muslims should not have hostility against Americans and Jews since they have ceased their battle against non-Muslims.  What is past, it is past!
    Quran 2:193 (Saheeh translation), “Fight them until there is no [more] fitnah and [until] worship is [acknowledged to be] for Allah. But if they cease, then there is to be no aggression except against the oppressors.”
    As the phrase, if they cease, is mentioned in Quran 2:193 with the phrase, there is to be no aggression, it implies that there should not be any anger against the hostility of non-Muslims if they cease in battle.  As Americans and jews have ceased their battle against non-Muslims, there should not be any anger upon them.
    Quran 2:193 (Mohsin Khan translation), “And fight them until there is no more Fitnah (disbelief and worshipping of others along with Allah) and (all and every kind of) worship is for Allah (Alone). But if they cease, let there be no transgression except against Az-Zalimun (the polytheists, and wrong-doers).”
    As the phrase, if they cease, is mentioned in Quran 2:193 (Mohsin Khan translation) with the phrase, let there be no transgression, it implies that Muslim should not remember by heart the transgression that American and Jews made in the past if they ceased in fighting with Muslims.  The phrase, except…wrong doers, is mentioned in Quran 2:193 gives exception that Muslims should remember their transgression if they continue in their wrong doing.  As Americans and Jews no longer battled against Muslims, they should not remember by heart the transgression that they had made in the past.
    (سورة النساء, An-Nisaa, Chapter #4, Verse #90)-Mohsin Khan translation
    ‘Except those who join a group, between you and whom there is a treaty (of peace), or those who approach you with their breasts restraining from fighting you as well as fighting their own people. Had Allah willed, indeed He would have given them power over you, and they would have fought you. So if they withdraw from you, and fight not against you, and offer you peace, then Allah has opened no way for you against them.’
    As the phrase, if they withdraw from you and fight not against you, is mentioned in Quran 4:90 with the phrase, Allah has opened no way for you against them, it implies that Muslims should not fight with non-Muslims if non-Muslims would withdraw their fight from them.  Modern Muslims should withdraw their fighting against modern Americans and Jews since they have ceased in fighting against Muslims nowadays so as to comply with Quran 4:90.

  • Amir Aslam , Rajkamal Kashyap , Wafa Abul , This is in reference to bigotry of Kshyup . will kashyup answer these.
    (1) in battle between Parhsuram ji and Kshatriyas unlimited number of kshatriyas were massacred. Mahabaharta was full of large number of casualties. Vides also contain countless stories about battles. What your take on this.
    (2) you said that “I do not believe in islam”. Okay fine no one is calling to to accept it. But do you understand any thing about Hinduism. Early Hindu text prohibit IDOL worship. Have you read the books of arya samajies. Arya samajies are of the opinion and they are right that in early Hinduism there was no IDOl worship. Can you prove that practice of IDOL worship and practice of worshiping shiva lingam was there during vedic period. if yes then provide reference 
    By mastery art of copy paste and photoshop I cannot be an intellectual. You have to study a lot before making any meaningful contribution to society.
