A call to the Syrian resistance factions in the eastern Ghouta

By :

Praise be to Allah, peace and blessings be upon the final Messenger of Allah; Mohammed and upon his family and companions and those who followed his guidance …After


ALLAH Almighty has specified you to carry the banner of jihad, and to defend Islam, and to protect the sanctity of Muslims. And it is a great niche, ALLAH promised that who carry this banner will guide him either way, the Almighty said: {As for those who strive hard in Us (our cause), We will surely guide them to Our paths}[Al-Ankabut: 69]. He noted in His Holy Quran and his immortal constitution the favor of the Mujahideen, when He said: {ALLAH has preferred in grades those who strive hard and fight with their wealth and their lives to those who sit (at home)} [Al-Nisaa: 95].

ALLAH Almighty had described the truthful Mujahideen who He loves and they loves him by His saying: {Humble towards the believers, stern toward the disbelievers, fighting in the Way of ALLAH, and never fear the blame of the blamers} [Al-Maidah: 54].


We was pained and saddened by every honest and vigilant Muslim of the great massacre that is going on between the brothers of the resistance factions in the eastern Ghouta, which killed hundreds of the purest and most sincere people, who sold their life in this world for what is better and more lasting near God Almighty. As well as what happened from taking prisoners of each other, and the siege on each other.


This is from the of the devil who sows a state of conflict and disagreements between these two communities {Shaitan (satan) verily, sows a state of conflict and disagreements among them. Surely Shaitan is to man a plain enemy} [Al-Israa: 53]. He the Almighty also said: {but the devil wants to throw between you the enmity and hatred} [Al-Maidah: 91]. Which enmity and hatred is more than to shed the blood of each other, and caught each other, and that the Muslim captivates his Muslim brother or killed him?!!


The verses of the Quran are calling us: {and hold fast, all of you together, to the Rope of ALLAH, and be not divided among yourselves} [Al-Imran: 103]. And God warns us: {and do not dispute lest you lose courage and your strength departs, and be patient. Surely, Allah is with those who are patient} [Anfal: 46].

What a happiness for your enemies who have gathered on exterminating you, they are seeing you killing each other, until your forehead is weaken, and your strength departs, so the attack you.


The Prophet, peace be upon him emphasizes the prohibition of Muslim blood, as he says in an Jaber Hadeeth, through Muslim and Abu Dawud: "Your blood and your money is a taboo on you, like the taboo of this day, in this month, in this country."


As in Abu Huraira narrated by Muslim, Ahmad and Abu Dawood and Tirmidhi: "Every Muslim is Haram on other Muslim, his blood, and his money, and his exposure."


As in a Hadeeth with Abu Bakra who was agreed by Bukhari and Muslim: "If two Muslims met by their blade the murderer and the deceased in the fire," I said: O Messenger of Allah, this is the killer, what about the deceased? He said: "He was keen to kill his friend."


The Muslims stand and help each other, they are hand on others, linking them ligament Islam, and buttonhole faith, and in the Saheeh, from Ibn Omar: "Muslim are brothers, do not oppress nor betray each other, and who was in need of his brother ALLAH was in need of him."


ALLAH has blessed them with this bond and brethren, He said: {and remember ALLAH’s Favour on you, for you were enemies one to another but He join your hearts together, so that, by His Grace you became brethren} [Al-Imran: 103]


The Almighty said: {and He has united their hearts. If you had spent all that in the earth, you could not have united their hearts. But ALLAH has united them. Certainly, He is All-Mighty All-Wise.} [Anfal: 63].

God has taught us that we fix between the brothers, he said: {So fear Allah and adjust all matters of difference among you} [Anfal: 1].


The Almighty said: {the believers are brothers make peace between your brothers and fear Allah, that you may obtain mercy} [Al-Hujurat: 10].


Imam Ahmad, Abu Dawood and Tirmidhi have taken from Hadeeth of Abu Darda, the Prophet, peace be upon him, said: "Shall I tell you the better degree than prayer, fasting and charity?" They said: Yes, O Messenger of Allah said: "the righteous of fences; the corruption fences are gone."

I say to my brothers the Mujahideen in the Army of Islam in the Corp Rahman: Rahman Corp should be part of the Army of Islam, and the Army of Islam, expressing Rahman Corps. They should be to merged; the two factions to grow stronger to their strength, and toughness to their toughness, lest they become immune to enemy strength, moving forward and not retreat to the back, fighting the enemy together and as He says: {Allah loves those who fight in His cause in ranks as if they cemented Bunyan } [Al-Saff: 4].


And we can take Manar golden rule: "cooperate as we have agreed upon, and excuse one another, in what we disagree with."


The Nation of Islam in the east and west is watching your Jihad, and pray to Allah that gives you a victory, they did not wait this rivalry from you, and do not accept these acts!


If the blood of the martyrs, and the pain of the wounded, and the symptoms of silks, and the sorrows of bereaved mothers and widows, and the groans of detainees are screaming on you: stop this losing battles!


The dispute between you and the try to win over each other will prolong the life of your enemy, that if it is not the survival for him?!


The misfortunes collect the sufferer, how about the sufferer of the people of Sham and what they are exposed to killing and displacing them for more than five years? 

The sincerity of work and acceptance by ALLAH needs honestly faith, innocence of the self. As in the hadith of Abu Musa al-Ash'ari through Bukhari and Muslim: He said peace be upon him: "who fight to make the word of ALLAH a supreme, so he is in the way of Allah Almighty."


We ask Allah to fit between the brothers, and stop the bloodshed, and unite their word, and strengthens their opponents, and supports them on the arrogant tyrants in the earth, He is over all things. And our last payer is praise be to ALLAH.
