Bin Laden’s Legacy: Options for Muslims: "بن لادن وراثي : خيارات للمسلمين"

"While condemning terrorism, the Muslims do not condone or approve the unfair, discriminatory, unpopular and unwise policies of global powers, nor see any justification for the wrong policies of any government, including that of some Muslim countries."
"في حين يدين الإرهاب ، والمسلمون لا تتغاضى عن أو الموافقة على سياسات غير عادلة وتمييزية ، التي لا تحظى بشعبية والحكمة من القوى العالمية ، ولا أرى أي مبرر لسياسات خاطئة من أي حكومة ، بما في ذلك بعض البلدان مسلم."

The Muslims oppose and condemn terrorism in all its forms and manifestations by any state, groups or individuals in unequivocal terms and are not ready to accept it as even remotely related to Islam in any manner. However, a negligible minority seems to give terrorism tacit approval due to ignorance and as a reaction to oppressive policies of imperialist powers [USA, West, Israel and India etc]. Their sympathisers under the influence of negative propaganda confuse the entire subject by resorting to misleading and perplexing discussions, misquoting the Holy Scripture to justify their horrendous acts. The   destruction and mass killing of innocent people in the name of Jihad (struggle against evil) is nothing but distortion, twisting and confusing the entire Islamic concept of Jihad, which make warfare permissible by legitimate authority in self defence or against the forces of oppression within laid down rules and morals, sparing innocent civilians, women and children. Suicide is not permissible under any condition, evil cannot become good, nor can oppression transform itself into virtue due to goodness of intention. Bin Laden and the US leadership had one thing common; the misguided belief that; ‘End justifies the means’. But if we want to preserve our humanity, it nerve does.

While condemning terrorism, the Muslims do not condone or approve the unfair, discriminatory, unpopular and unwise policies of global powers, nor see any justification for the wrong policies of any government, including that of some Muslim countries. 
Hence killing of peaceful unarmed civilians [Muslims or non Muslims] by Al Qaeda, Taliban groups and rogue powers like Israel, USA, West and India,  occupying the Muslim lands in Palestine, Afghanistan, Iraq, Pakistan, Kashmir and elsewhere is unpardonable most heinous crime against humanity which is to be explicitly condemned and rejected by all peace loving humans. While Mullah Omar leading resistance against foreign occupation forces in Afghanistan, condemned killing of innocent Muslims in Pakistan, Osama Bin Laden or his deputy Al Zahwari never condemned killing of innocent Muslims and non Muslims, rather they appear to condone and approve of it, hence such Khawarij/Takfiri beasts can not claim to be part of Muslim community in the light of Fatwa [Edict] based upon research work of great scholars of Islam. 
The legacy of Bin Laden is mass killings of innocent people, Muslim or non Muslims to advance his cause. He followed Takfiri Doctrine, used a pretext to kill innocent Muslims. The Takfiri doctrine is not based upon any direct clear commandment or ayah of Qur’an, it is derivative, based upon analogy (taweel), which can have more than one opinions. The pronouncement to declare any non practicing Muslim, to be an apostate, (Murtad) hence liable to be killed is called Takfir. It has become a central ideology of militant groups across the world to kill innocent Muslims including children, women, young and old at public places and even in mosques, through suicide bombing. Mainstream Muslims and Islamic groups reject the pseudo concept of ‘Takfir’ as a doctrinal deviation [bid’at], heresy, un-Islamic and marked by bigotry and zealotry. If a Muslim fails to perform some of his obligations and is remiss in practice or commits some such actions as are forbidden, yet he believes in the liability of all obligations and the impropriety of all unlawful deeds, he will continue to be a Muslim though he will be a sinner.

Bin Laden was killed by USA, but in revenge.Taliban [Khawarij, Takfiri] killed 80 innocent Muslims in Pakistan on 14 May 2011. They have already killed over 30,000 innocent Pakistanis. This is the legacy Bin Laden. The sympathisers of Bin Laden and Taliban are party to this heinous crime, such Khawarij  are addressed as 'Dogs of Hell' by Prophet Muhammad [peace be upon him]. Its time now that people identify and cleanse the society of such evils. Allah says:
"Whoever recommends and helps a good cause becomes a partner therein: and whoever recommends and helps an evil cause shares in its burden: and Allah has power over all things."[Qur'an;4:85]

Twin revenge attacks kill 80 in Pakistan

Taliban claim responsibility for carnage ...

The Prophesies by the Messenger of Allah [Pbuh] About the Khawārij Terrorists:
Khawarij is derived from Arabic:  Khawārij, literally "those who went out" [of fold of Islam].
1.     The terrorists would appear religious.
2.     The Khawarij slogans would seem true to the common man.
3.     The Khawarij would use adolescents for terrorist activities after brainwashing.
4.     The Khawarij would appear from the East.
5.     The Khawarij would keep coming until the time of False Messiah (Anti Christ-Dajjal).
6.     The Khawarij will be absolutely debarred from the fold of Islam.
7.     The Khawarij will be the dogs of Hell.
8.     The religious appearance of the Khawarij must not be mistaken.
9.     The Khawarij are the worst of creation.
According to Fatwa [Edict] this is clearly applicable to Al Qaeda and Pakistani Taliban and alike: Allah says: “It is those whose entire struggle is wasted in worldly life, but they presume they are doing very good works.” (al-Quran, 18: 104)

Options for Muslims:
The Muslims may respond to the present crisis in two ways; either to follow the clear, unambiguous teachings and guidance from Qur’an and Sunnah to be successful in this and next world or blindly follow the path leading to destruction by following the concocted irrational pseudo ideologies of extremists satisfying their ambitions and desires.
A-Rational Response for Peace & Stability in light of Qur’an & Sunnah:
1.     Respect and the sanctity of human life should be fully respected, killing of innocent people whether Muslims or non Muslims must be avoided as forbidden by Qur’an. Death penalty can only be executed after fair trial in the legitimate court of law.
2.       Live peacefully with non Muslims in equitable and friendly way. All out efforts must be made to resolve international conflicts through peaceful means i.e. negotiations, treaties and charters signed with international communities [all Muslim countries are signatory to UN Charter].
3.     International community must be urged to end oppression of Muslims in Palestine, Kashmir, Afghanistan, Iraq and elsewhere. Killing of innocent Muslims in these places and Pakistan must stop. Muslim governments should at least extend moral support to the freedom struggle to end occupation of Muslim lands by foreign powers.
4.     Once the peaceful means fail, armed struggle [Jihad with weapons] should only be conducted on declaration by legitimate Muslim authority [government, not rogue groups] in accordance with the clear conditions laid down in Qur’an and Sunnah.
5.     People or groups imposing their own will/version upon others by force, justifying killing of Muslims [not sufficiently religious or sinners] by declaring them apostate [Takfir] are creating mischief on land [Fasad-fil-Ardh]. They should be tried and punished according to law.
6.     Scholars must be educated to understand and fully comprehend the fallacy of doctrines of terror [Khawarij, Takfir] and educate fellow brothers and sisters to purge the society of their false influence and sympathy.
7.     Mass education of modern sciences and basic religious knowledge must be done on priority basis, so that Muslims attain their lost glory and respect.
8.     Muslims should themselves cleanse their societies from contamination of faith an terror groups without any foreign help as it’s their own problem. Initially peaceful persuasion, then use of minimum force if necessary, however if they repent, it should be accepted.
9.     Raise the voice against corrupt rulers in peaceful way without creating anarchy in society.
10. Foreign interference in the affairs of Muslims states on the pretext of help/assistance should be opposed and rejected. This only benefits the corrupt rulers & oppressive powers to subjugate, gain control of resources, thus compromising their sovereignty.
11. The task and struggle is arduous but FREEDOM & PEACE are priceless.

B- Irrational Response of Destruction by following pseudo Ideologies of Extremists:
1.  Since foreign powers are causing unjustified interference in Muslim countries, including Pakistan, the (so-called) Jihadi groups have thwarted them by launching the offensive, inflicting upon them devastating blows and that their actions, though not right and justifiable, should not be reviled and condemned because their intention to defend Islam are noble. [This is an awful syllogism and a most deplorable stance in the light of the Qur’an and Hadith, evil cannot become good under any circumstances, nor can oppression transform itself into virtuous deed due to goodness of intention. Moreover, their barbarian acts have only served the evil designs of anti Muslim forces to occupy the Muslim lands, causing more death and destruction on the pretext of ‘War on Terror’ and exploit their resources.]
2.  Sympathise with Osama bin Laden considering him as a hero, thus support Khawarij, Takfiri Al-Qaeda & Pak Taliban, since they overtly claim to oppose USA and West. [Where as practically they are tools of Anti Muslim powers and forces, indiscriminately killing innocent Muslims.They have killed more than 30,000 civilians, women, children in Pakistan only, damaging and weakening the only Muslim Nuclear Power  Pakistan (also objective of Zionists, USA, West &Indians), even if the present corrupt rulers are perceived to be the tools of USA and West, but the common  people are not. This is not Jihad but simple terrorism. Islam (Sunnah) lays down the methodology to oppose corrupt Muslim regimes, avoiding anarchy and instability].
3.  Promote and support the ‘Khawarij, Takfiri’ ideology of Terrorists, there is no need to questioning or understanding its anti Islamic implications. [Hence they join the group addressed as ‘Dogs of hell’, by Prophet Muhammad [pbuh]. This ideology is rejected by all the reputed Islamic scholars during last 1400 years, its followers fall outside the folds of Islam (kufr) being against Qur’an and Sunnah].Create terror, Kill people [Muslims or non Muslims, women, children, young or old, in mosques, churches, other places of worship] who do not agree with your perceptions/ doctrines, through suicide bombing and other means of terror.
4.    Blindly follow the misguided pseudo scholars of Islam, who for political power & gains are massacring Muslims, causing disunity, factions among Muslim Ummah. [Islam is a rational faith, Qur’an encourages reasoning and pondering, going against Islamic consensus (ijm’a) blindly is a recipe for destruction and route to hell ].

Corona & Attitude of Ulema of Pakistan - Point to Ponder

Faith is entirely a personal matter, which cannot be measured or quantified. Anyone who declares to believe in 6 Fundamentals and 5 Pillars of Islam is considered as a Muslim even if he lacks in practice.  کرونا اور علماء پاکستان کا رویہ - لمحہ فکریہ: پاکستان اس وقت  تک ترقی نہیں کر سکتا  جب تک ہم اس جاہل ، مزہبی انتہا پسند طبقے کی اس زہنیت سےچھٹکارا  نہیں حاصل  کر لیتے جو مساجد ، مذہب کو کنٹرول کرکہ  زیادہ جاہل عوام کو گمراہ  کرتے ہیں۔  اسلام کو ان جہلا کے شکنجے بچایا جانا صروری ہے۔ .....[....] We find many people looking "more Muslim" than others due to their outlook and activities in display, yet it's not a measuring  tool for their level of faith , which is only known to Allah. However they consider ONLY themselves  to be entitled to  exercise control on religion, which is contested because authenticity of any opinion on religious matter is conditional to the reference and authority from Holy Scripture.  Allah has not authorized anyone to present the
