Do you believe that is because Muslims in so called Muslim ands are living under Muslim rule, or because they live under puppets who need to appease the kuffar and loan sharks to stay in power?
The constant meddling in the affairs of Muslims and invasions if they don't listen is a stark indication of why Muslims are actually standing up to the puppets and the puppet drivers, getting called extremists and insurgents in the process, worse still, some who are untouched by the fitnah wonder why they don't just sit there suffering without doing something.
Those who like to be among the kuffar rather than try to help in the establishment of Islam will be with the kuffar on the day of judgement, even the prophet pbuh washed his hands off them.
Let me make it clear to you that the kuffar will not allow you to establish Islam in peace and that those who strive in the effort will have to endure reproach and spite from the kuffar and Munafiqeen alike.
May Allah save me from being among the kuffar and give me the honour to die under an Islamic khilafah or in the process of working towards it.
I'm gonna give this site a break for a while, it seems even the mods are more worried about falling into fitnah than understanding the meaning of freedom and what it requires.
Remember when the kuffar came to the ProPiet pbuh to compromise in service?
We'll serve ('ibaadah) your God and you serve ('ibaadah) ours? He refused.
It is not very different for those happy to live under infidel "gods" who reject the rule of Allah and prescribe rules for them at whim - as long as they compromise and throw you a few tidbits and "freedom to do anything but disobey our laws".
I'll leave you to consider these examples, see if it fits with your style:
Muslim reported another part of this story on the authority of Abu Hurairah [R] — He said: "When the following verses were revealed:
"And warn your tribe (O Muhammad (Allah bless him and give him peace)) of near kindred." [26:214]
The Messenger of Allâh (Allah bless him and give him peace) called all the people of Quraish; so they gathered and he gave them a general warning. Then he made a particular reference to certain tribes, and said: "O Quraish, rescue yourselves from the Fire; O people of Bani Ka‘b, rescue yourselves from Fire; O Fatimah, daughter of Muhammad (Allah bless him and give him peace) , rescue yourself from the Fire, for I have no power to protect you from Allâh in anything except that I would sustain relationship with you." [Muslim 1/114; Bukhari 1/385,2/702]
It was verily a loud suggestive Call stating unequivocally to the closest people that belief in his Message constituted the corner-stone of any future relation between him and them, and that the blood-relation on which the whole Arabian life was based, had ceased to exist in the light of that Divine ultimatum.
Shouting the Truth and the Polytheists’ Reaction
The Prophet’s voice kept reverberating in Makkah until the following verse was revealed:
"Therefore proclaim openly (Allâh’s Message — Islamic Monotheism), that which you are commanded, and turn away from Al-Mushrikûn (polytheists)." [Al-Qur'an 15:94]
He then commenced discrediting the superstitious practices of idolatry, revealing its worthless reality and utter impotence, and giving concrete proofs that idolatry per se or taking it as the media through which an idolater could come in contact with Allâh, is manifest falsehood
The Makkans, on their part, burst into outrage and disapproval. Muhammad’s (Allah bless him and give him peace) words created a thunderbolt that turned the Makkan time-honoured ideological life upside down. They could ill afford to hear someone attaching to polytheists and idolaters, the description of straying people. They started to rally their resources to settle down the affair, quell the onward marching revolution and deal a pre-emptive strike to its votaries before it devours and crushes down their consecrated traditions and long standing heritage. The Makkans had the deep conviction that denying godship to anyone save Allâh and that belief in the Divine Message and the Hereafter are interpreted in terms of complete compliance and absolute commitment, and this in turn leaves no area at all for them to claim authority over themselves and over their wealth, let alone their subordinates. In short, their arrogated religiously-based supremacy and highhandedness would no longer be in effect; their pleasures would be subordinated to the pleasures of Allâh and His Messenger and lastly they would have to abstain from incurring injustices on those whom they falsely deemed to be weak, and perpetrating dreadful sins in their everyday life. They had already been fully aware of these meanings, that is why their souls would not condescend to accept this ‘disgraceful’ position not out of motives based on dignity and honour but rather because:
"Nay! (Man denies Resurrection and Reckoning. So) he desires to continue committing sins." [Al-Qur'an 75:5]
They had been aware of all these consequences but they could afford to do nothing before an honest truthful man who was the highest example of good manners and human values. They had never known such an example in the history of their folks or grandfathers. What would they do? They were baffled, and they had the right to be so.
Following careful deliberations, they hit upon the only target available, i.e. to contact the Messenger’s uncle, Abu Talib and request him to intervene and advise his nephew to stop his activities. In order to attach a serious and earnest stamp to their demand, they chose to touch the most sensitive area in Arabian life, viz., ancestral pride. They addressed Abu Talib in the following manner: "O Abu Talib! Your nephew curses our gods; finds faults with our way of life, mocks at our religion and degrades our forefathers; either you must stop him, or you must let us get at him. For you are in the same opposition as we are in opposition to him; and we will rid you of him." Abu Talib tried to appease their wrath by giving them a polite reply. The Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) , however, continued on his way preaching Allâh’s religion and calling men hitherto, heedless of all their desperate attempts and malicious intentions. [Ibn Hisham 1/265]
Quraish’s Representative negotiates with the Messenger of Allâh (Allah bless him and give him peace)
Shortly after the conversion of these two powerful heroes, Hamzah bin ‘Abdul-Muttalib and ‘Umar bin Al-Khattab[R] , the clouds of tyranny and oppression started to clear away and the polytheists realized that it was no use meting out torture to the Muslims. They consequently began to direct their campaign to a different course. The authentic records of the biography of the Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) show that it had occurred to the Makkan leaders to credit Muhammad (Allah bless him and give him peace) with ambition. They, therefore, time and again plied him with temptation. One day some of the important men of Makkah gathered in the enclosure of Al-Ka‘bah, and ‘Utbah bin Rabi‘a, a chief among them, offered to approach the Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) and contract a bargain with him whereby they give him whatever worldly wealth he asks for, on condition that he keep silent and no longer proclaim his new faith. The people of Quraish endorsed his proposal and requested him to undertake that task. ‘Utbah came closer to Muhammad (Allah bless him and give him peace) and addressed him in the following words:
We have seen no other man of Arabia, who has brought so great a calamity to a nation, as you have done. You have outraged our gods and religion and taxed our forefathers and wise men with impiety and error and created strife amongst us. You have left no stone unturned to estrange the relations with us. If you are doing all this with a view to getting wealth, we will join together to give you greater riches than any Quraishite has possessed. If ambition moves you, we will make you our chief. If you desire kingship we will readily offer you that. If you are under the power of an evil spirit which seems to haunt and dominate you so that you cannot shake off its yoke, then we shall call in skilful physicians to cure you.
"Have you said all?" asked Muhammad (Allah bless him and give him peace); and then hearing that all had been said, he spoke forth, and said:
"In the Name of Allâh, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful.
A revelation from Allâh, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful.
A Book whereof the verses are explained in detail;
— a Qur’ân in Arabic for people who know.
Giving glad tidings and warning.
But most of them turn away, so they listen not.
And they say: Our hearts are under coverings
(screened) from that to which you invite us …" [Al-Qur'an 41: 1-5]
The Messenger of Allâh (Allah bless him and give him peace) went on reciting the Chapter while ‘Utbah sitting and listening attentively with his hand behind his back to support him. When the Messenger reached the verse that required prostration, he immediately prostrated himself. After that, he turned to ‘Utbah saying: "Well Abu Al-Waleed! You have heard my reply, you are now free to do whatever you please." ‘Utbah then retired to his company to apprise them of the Prophet’s attitude. When his compatriots saw him, they swore that he had returned to them with a countenance unlike the one he had before meeting the Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) . He immediately communicated to them the details of the talk he gave and the reply he received, and appended saying: "I have never heard words similar to those ones he recited. They definitely relate neither to poetry nor to witchcraft nor do they derive from soothsaying. O people of Quraish! I request you to heed my advice and grant the man full freedom to pursue his goals, in which case you could safely detach yourselves from him. I swear that his words bear a supreme Message. Should the other Arabs rid you of him, they will then spare you the trouble, on the other hand if he accedes to power over the Arabs, then you will bask in his kingship and share him his might." These words of course fell on deaf ears, and did not appeal to the infidels, who jeered at ‘Utbah and claimed that the Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) had bewitched him. [Ibn Hisham 1/293,294]
Realise that as long as you uphold this way of life firmly, you will be seen as troublemakers by those who have a vested interest in controlling people and hate what Allah has revealed.
Peace, and bye bye.
