Report Anyone Planning Or Plotting To Hurt To Authorities

By T.O. Shanavas, New Age Islam








The violence in San Bernardino or even a small act or thought of hurting others is not piety. Devout Muslims must remember that nothing good would ever come from God out of such despicable acts.

QUR’AN: Chapter 2: Verse 177 “It is not piety, that you turn your faces to the East and to the West. True piety is this: to believe in God, and the Last Day, the angels, the Book, and the Prophets, to give of one's substance, however cherished, to kinsmen, and orphans, the needy, the traveller, beggars, and to ransom the slave, to perform the prayer, to pay the charity. And they who fulfil their covenant when they have engaged in a covenant, and endure with fortitude misfortune, hardship and peril, these are they who are true in their faith, these are the truly god-conscience.”

Serving justice is the core of the faith of a devout Muslim.  “O who you believe, be persistently standing firm in justice, witnesses for God, even if it be against yourselves or parents and relatives. Whether one is rich or poor, Allah is more worthy of both. So follow not personal inclination, lest you not be just. And if you distort [your testimony] or refuse [to give it], then indeed Allah is ever, with what you do, Acquainted.” (The Qur’an Chapter 4, verse 135.)

So, absolute justice is a Muslim obligation and must report to authorities if they come to know anyone planning or plotting to hurt others.

  • Even if the Muslim is staying in a Non Islamic country and being governed by non Muslims. The mind reels with why and how can anybody do such a despicable act.

  • Look at them, she is a Pakistan national married to a Pakistani decent U.S. born citizen. She never allowed to marry Arab national nor allowed citizenship. Somehow engaged and subsequently married and have a 6 month old  kid.
     Fully aware of the fact  how KSA treatments towards Pakistani other non Arab workers. Despite that she with her husband engaged in terrorizing killing citizens, eventually neutralized. How would you explain this horrific deed. Theses non Arab Muslims are vulnerable to an Arab master extreme puritanical version of Islam and  their  perpetual hatred of unbelievers. This bondage of mind is as bad as slavery of the body. And some of south Asian are suffering from identity and low esteem.
