ad-Dala’il fi Hukm Muwalat Ahl'ul Ishrak (The Evidences For The Ruling Regarding Alliance With The Infidels)Modified

Imam Sulayman Ibn Abdullah Ibn Muhammad Ibn Abd'il Wahhab

Sulayman Ibn Abdullah Ibn Muhammad Ibn Abd'il Wahhab (1200H-H1233)1

He is Imam Sulayman Ibn Abdullah Ibn Muhammad Ibn Abd'il Wahhab (rahimahullaah) the grandson of the Mujaddid, Shaykh'ul Islam Muhammad Ibn Abd'il Wahhab (rahimahullaah). He is notably known for his outstanding book “Taysir'ul Aziz'ul Hamid Sharh Kitaab'ut Tawhid”.

He was born in the year 1200H at ad-Dir’iyyah, the capital of the Salafiyyah, while it was filled with great scholars. He memorized the Qur’an and studied the Fara’idh (the laws of inheritance) from Shaykh Abd'ur Rahman Ibn Khumis.

Shaykh Sulayman Ibn Abdullah was extraordinary in his knowledge, and was a symbol of memorization and brilliance. He had a deep understanding of the sciences of Hadith, its narrators, its chains, its Sahih (authentic), Hasan (good), and Dha’if (weak); to such a degree that it used to be said: “He is the most knowledgeable of the narrators of Hadith compared to the others in his country.”

He was an Alim (scholar), Faqih (jurist), Mufassir (scholar of exegesis), and Usouli (scholar of principles of Islamic sciences). And his calligraphy was so beautiful that none was compared to him during his time. And the Shaykh was renowned for his severity for the Haqq (truth), and his ordering the righteous deeds and forbidding the evil deeds, and he was well-known for his Ghirah (pride) for the Din.

There are a great many books and treatises written by the Shaykh, a few to mention would be;

ad-Dala’il fi Hukm Muwalat Ahl'ul Ishrak (The Evidences For The Ruling Regarding Alliance With The Infidels)

Awthaq Ura'al Iman (The Firmest Handhold of Iman). Regarding the obligation and virtues of Alliance to the Mu’minin, and loyalty to them, and loving them, and aiding them.

Hashiyat ala'l Muqni fi'l Fiqh, in three large volumes.

at-Tawdhih an Tawhid'ul Khallaq2

In the year 1233H, after Ibrahim Pasha the Grecian- the son of Mahomet Ali the Grecian invaded the lands of Arabia and launched an offensive against the Muwahhidin, and after the Ottomans rampaged the capital of the Muslim scholars in ad-Dir’iyyah; some people collaborated with Ibrahim Pasha and betrayed the Muwahhidun. So Ibrahim Pasha summoned for the Shaykh, and then brought him out in front of a large assembly. He ordered for various immoral and evil things to be brought in front of the Shaykh, in order to aggravate the Shaykh and infuriate him. And finally Ibrahim Pasha ordered his troops to nail the Shaykh to a cross, and then to open fire upon him. And his troops fired their bullets into the Shaykh, while he patiently endured, until they had torn his body into shreds. After-wards, his head was sent as a gift to the Ottoman capital in Istanbul.


مِنَ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ رِجَالٌ صَدَقُوا مَا عَاهَدُوا اللَّهَ عَلَيْهِ فَمِنْهُم مَّن قَضَى نَحْبَهُ وَمِنْهُم مَّن يَنتَظِرُ وَمَا بَدَّلُوا تَبْدِيلاً

“Among the Mu’minin are men who have been true to their covenant with Allah; of them some have fulfilled their obligations, and some of them are still waiting, but they have never changed in the least.” (al-Ahzab 33/23)

We ask Allah to accept the Imam as a Shahid (martyr) in His Cause.

Introduction

“al-Wala and al-Bara are two great foundations from the principles of Islam. And it is a manifestation of the difference between Ahl'us Sunnah wa'l Jama’ah from other groups. And this follows the fact that it is from the most important requirements of La-ilaha illallah (There is no god deserves to be worshiped but Allah)!..

And this treatise is specifically about those who assist the Kuffar against the Muslims. It was written by Shaykh Sulayman Ibn Abdullah (rahimahullaah) when the Kafir Ottoman Empire and their Egyptian allies invaded the lands of the Muwahhidin inside the Arabian Peninsula.

Between the years 1226H and 1233H, the armies (of the Ottomans) launched an onslaught against the lands of Najd, seeking to end the Da’wah (call) of Tawhid. And during that period, many of those who ascribed themselves to Islam assisted these infidel armies against the Muslims. So the scholars of Najd issued the verdicts that whosoever helps the Kuffar (against the Muslims), then they are apostates. Then Shaykh Sulayman Ibn Abdullah al'ash-Shaykh (rahimahullaah) compiled the treatise "ad-Dala’il". And in this treatise he established that anyone who collaborates with the Kuffar is an apostate. And he mentioned twenty-one evidences upon that.

And about fifty years after Shaykh Sulayman wrote his treatise, the Ottomans once again launched an invasion against the Da’wah of Tawhid and that is when Shaykh Hamad Ibn Atiq (rahimahullaah) wrote another book clarifying the ruling upon those who cooperate with the Mushrikin against the Muslims; and he also makes Takfir of all the collaborators. The book is Sabil'un Najat wa'l Fikak. These two books are the main books regarding the topic of collaboration written by the Salaf and known as: "ad-Dala'il" and "Sabil'un Najat".

And regarding the subject of Muthaharah (helping the Kuffar against the Muslims), no book has preceded it, nor after it, with such clarity. And the Imams of Najd used to advice the Tullab'ul Ilm (students of knowledge) to memorize this treatise by heart, as if it was on the tip of their tongues. “Shaykh al-Mu’ammar Abd'ul Aziz al-Murshad recited it by heart many times to Imam Abdullah Ibn Abd'ul Latif al'ash-Shaykh. And the fact that this (memorization of this treatise) was a fundamental concern by the Ulama of Najd.1

As this treatise had become widespread throughout the circles of knowledge, the students referred to this treatise as merely "ad-Dala’il"- The Evidences.

Wa Ba’d…

Regarding Those Who Forsake Millah of Ibrahim1

Know, may Allah have mercy upon you, that:

If a person displays Muwafaqah2 with the Mushrikin regarding their Din3; out of Khawf from them4, Mudarah5 towards them, or Mudahanah6 to repel their evil: then verily, he is a Kafir just like them7 even8 if he despises their religion and hates them, and loves Islam and the Muslims.

This is if nothing came from him except that; So what if he was in a land of rebellion (against the Muwahhidin), and submits to them, and enters into their obedience, and shows harmony with their false religion, and helps them upon it with assistance and wealth9 and allies himself with them and breaks the alliance between himself and the Muslims, and becomes from the soldiers of Shirk and the Qibab10 and its people; after he was from the Soldiers of Ikhlas11 and Tawhid and its people?

Regarding such a person, no Muslim will doubt that such is a Kafir, from amongst the most severe of people in their enmity against Allah and His Messenger (sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam). And none is an exception to this, except the Mukrah.12

1- Allah Ta'ala said the following regarding Millat Ibrahim:

قَدْ كَانَتْ لَكُمْ أُسْوَةٌ حَسَنَةٌ فِي إِبْرَاهِيمَ وَالَّذِينَ مَعَهُ إِذْ قَالُوا لِقَوْمِهِمْ إِنَّا بُرَاء مِنكُمْ وَمِمَّا تَعْبُدُونَ مِن دُونِ اللَّهِ كَفَرْنَا بِكُمْ وَبَدَا بَيْنَنَا وَبَيْنَكُمُ الْعَدَاوَةُ وَالْبَغْضَاء أَبَداً حَتَّى تُؤْمِنُوا بِاللَّهِ وَحْدَهُ إِلَّا قَوْلَ إِبْرَاهِيمَ لِأَبِيهِ لَأَسْتَغْفِرَنَّ لَكَ وَمَا أَمْلِكُ لَكَ مِنَ اللَّهِ مِن شَيْءٍ رَّبَّنَا عَلَيْكَ تَوَكَّلْنَا وَإِلَيْكَ أَنَبْنَا وَإِلَيْكَ الْمَصِيرُ

"There has indeed been an excellent example for you in Ibrahim and those with him, when they said to their people: Verily, we are free from you and whatever you worship besides Allah. We have rejected you and there has emerged between us and you, hostility and hatred forever, until you believe in Allah alone." (al-Mumtahinah 60/4)

2- Muwafaqah: harmony, compliance, agreement.

3- In this context, Din is meant as "way of life" or "desires"; and Imam Hamad Ibn Atiq an-Najdi (rahimahullaah) in his book "Sabil'un Najat wa'l Fikak" clarifies this with many evidences. For example, the verse:

وَلَن تَرْضَى عَنكَ الْيَهُودُ وَلاَ النَّصَارَى حَتَّى تَتَّبِعَ مِلَّتَهُمْ قُلْ إِنَّ هُدَى اللّهِ هُوَ الْهُدَى وَلَئِنِ اتَّبَعْتَ أَهْوَاءهُم بَعْدَ الَّذِي جَاءكَ مِنَ الْعِلْمِ مَا لَكَ مِنَ اللّهِ مِن وَلِيٍّ وَلاَ نَصِيرٍ

"Never will the Jews nor the Christians be pleased with you (O Muhammad!) until you follow their religion. Say: Verily, the Guidance of Allah (Tawhid); that is the only Guidance. And if you (O Muhammad!) were to follow their desires after what you have received of Knowledge (i.e., Qur’an), then you would have against Allah neither any protector nor any helper." (al-Baqarah 2/120)

And Imam Hamad brings many more verses that prove that what is meant by "following their Din" is actually "following their desires"; for the religion of the Kuffar is nothing but their desires. As Allah says:


وَأَنِ احْكُم بَيْنَهُم بِمَا أَنزَلَ اللّهُ وَلاَ تَتَّبِعْ أَهْوَاءهُمْ

"So judge among them by what Allah has revealed, and do not follow their vain desires." (al-Ma’idah 5/49) Meaning follow the Shari’ah of Tawhid, and not the legislation of Shirk, Kufr, Nifaq, and Riddah.

4- Khawf: fear, cowardice.

5- Mudarah: companionship, friendliness, lenience.

6- Mudahanah: compromising, flattery, adulation, hypocrisy, deceit.

7- The Imams differentiated between Mudarah and Mudahanah. Displaying Mudarah to the Mushrikin is excusable if there are specific excuses, which are mentioned in the Nusus (pl., Nass; textual proofs). (ad-Durar as-Saniyyah, 5/35; al-Ajurri, al-Ghuraba, 70)

The word Mudahanah is used in the following verse with the meaning "compromise" as is in the Ayah:


فَلَا تُطِعِ الْمُكَذِّبِينَ وَدُّوا لَوْ تُدْهِنُ فَيُدْهِنُونَ

"So (O Muhammad) do not obey the deniers (of Tawhid). They wish that you would compromise with them, so they (too) could compromise with you." (al-Qalam 68/8-9)

Hafidh Ibn Hajar al-Asqalani said: "Qurtubi said, following Iyyadh: The difference between Mudarah and Mudahanah is: Mudarah includes sacrificing a worldly matter for the uprightness of either another worldly matter or a matter of Din, or both together. And Mudahanah is forsaking a matter of the Din for the stability of the worldly matters." (Ibn Hajar, Fath'ul Bari, 10/454)

He also mentions: "Ibn Battal said: Mudarah is the respect of the Muslims (towards fellow Muslims), and being courteous to the people, by speaking to them politely, and avoiding talking harshly with them and this is one of the strongest ways to stay united. Some people think that Mudarah is Mudahanah, but this is incorrect… The difference is that Mudahanah derives itself from Dihan (deceit, lit. rubbing oil); in the sense that one displays something (of behavior), while hiding what is really inside him. And the scholars have explained it with the like of ‘companionship with a Fasiq (rebellious, disobedient, sinful person) and outwardly displaying satisfaction with what he is upon, without prohibiting him from that’. As for Mudarah, it is being soft with an ignorant person while teaching him, or with a Fasiq (who is Muslim) when prohibiting him, and not being harsh upon him with either speech or action; especially if it can lead to unity." (Ibn Hajar, Fath'ul Bari, 10/528)

8- This is a refutation of the Murji’ah, who say that if the collaborator "hates Kufr" and "loves Islam" then such a person is still a Muslim.

9- The Ulama of Islam are united upon the fact that whosoever aids the Kuffar against the Muslims, collaborates with them with any type of assistance, then that person is a Kafir just like them.

10- Domes (on top of graves, tombs, or mausoleums, or on the top of palaces and government buildings). The singular form is Qubbah, meaning dome.

11- Sincerity, Purity from Shirk and its people and being far removed from them.

12- Derived from "Ikrah" meaning "force, coercion, compulsion, etc." Mukrah literally means "one who is forced, coerced…" Only this type of person is excused because of the verse:

مَن كَفَرَ بِاللّهِ مِن بَعْدِ إيمَانِهِ إِلاَّ مَنْ أُكْرِهَ وَقَلْبُهُ مُطْمَئِنٌّ بِالإِيمَانِ وَلَـكِن مَّن شَرَحَ بِالْكُفْرِ صَدْراً فَعَلَيْهِمْ غَضَبٌ مِّنَ اللّهِ وَلَهُمْ عَذَابٌ عَظِيمٌ ذَلِكَ بِأَنَّهُمُ اسْتَحَبُّواْ الْحَيَاةَ الْدُّنْيَا عَلَى الآخِرَةِ وَأَنَّ اللّهَ لاَ يَهْدِي الْقَوْمَ الْكَافِرِينَ

"Whoever commits Kufr against Allah after his Iman (in Allah), excluding he who is forced thereto while his heart is at rest with Iman; but such who open their breasts to Kufr, on them is wrath from Allah, and theirs will be a great torment. That is because they loved and preferred the life of this world over that of the Hereafter. And Allah does not guide the people who are kafirin." (an-Nahl 16/106-107)

Imam Muhammad Ibn Abd'il Wahhab (rahimahullaah) says regarding this verse: "(After mentioning the verse) So Allah (Subhanahu wa Ta'ala) did not excuse anyone except the Mukrah whose heart is firm upon Iman and Tawhid. And it is known by necessity that it is impossible to coerce someone to change his beliefs; but it is possible to change his speech and actions. So this verse has clarified that whoever utters a word of Kufr, or does an action of Kufr -then he has indeed become a Kafir- with the exclusion of the Mukrah who is firm upon Tawhid in his heart. And as mentioned in the verse, he became a Kafir because he preferred Dunya (the worldly life), not because he changed his beliefs." (Tarikh, Ibn Ghannam, 344)
Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said:

إِنَّ النَّاسَ دَخَلُوا فِي دِينِ اللهِ أَفْوَاجًا، وَسَيَخْرُجُونَ مِنْهُ أَفْوَاجًا

"Verily, the people have entered into the religion of Allah in crowds and they will also leave it in crowds." (Ahmad, Musnad)

  • O people! Respond (with obedience) to Allah's Call
Who is the Mukrah?

And he is the one who has been captured by the mushrikun, then they say to him: “Commit Kufr! Or do such and such… If you don’t, we will do such and such to you and kill you!” Or they take him and torture him until he agrees with them. So it is permissible for him to agree with them with the tongue, while the heart is calm upon Iman.1

And the Ulama have formed consensus upon the fact that whoever utters a word of Kufr jokingly, that he has disbelieved. So what would the ruling be regarding the one who displays Kufr because of fear and greed for worldly gains?2

I shall mention some of the evidences upon that, with the assistance of Allah and His Aid.



Quote
1- It is permissible, but not obligatory. It is better and Afdal (more virtuous) for the Mukrah to be patient and stand unwaveringly upon Tawhid; especially if he is a person of Ilm, so as to be a model for others. As is mentioned in the Hadith of Abu'd Darda (radiyallahu anh):

وْصَانِي خَلِيلِي صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ أَنْ لَا تُشْرِكْ بِاللَّهِ شَيْئًا وَإِنْ قُطِّعْتَ وَحُرِّقْتَ

"My friend (i.e., Rasulullah) sallallahu alayhi wa sallam advised me with: Do not commit Shirk, even if you are dismembered or burned." (Ibn Ma'jah, #4034; Bayhaqi; at-Targhib)

Also there is this famous Hadith:


ثَلاَثٌ مَنْ كُنَّ فِيهِ وَجَدَ حَلاَوَةَ الإِيمَانِ أَنْ يَكُونَ اللَّهُ وَرَسُولُهُ أَحَبَّ إِلَيْهِ مِمَّا سِوَاهُمَا، وَأَنْ يُحِبَّ الْمَرْءَ لاَ يُحِبُّهُ إِلاَّ لِلَّهِ، وَأَنْ يَكْرَهَ أَنْ يَعُودَ فِي الْكُفْرِ كَمَا يَكْرَهُ أَنْ يُقْذَفَ فِي النَّارِ

"Three types of people will taste the sweetness of Iman… and (among these three is) the one who hates to return back to Kufr, just as he would hate to be thrown into a blazing fire." (Bukhari, #16; Muslim, #43)

2- So in summary, those who commit Kufr do not exceed out of four situations:

a- He believes in his heart in what he says. There is no doubt about his Kufr (disbelief/infidelity/apostasy).

b- He does not believe in his heart in what he says, but he was not forced to say it. Rather he said it because of greediness for the worldly life, or to please the people and be in harmony with them. So indeed this person is a Kafir according to the verse of the Qur’an:

ذَلِكَ بِأَنَّهُمُ اسْتَحَبُّواْ الْحَيَاةَ الْدُّنْيَا عَلَى الآخِرَةِ

"That is because they loved and preferred the life of this world over that of the Hereafter." (an-Nahl 16/107)

And likewise is the ruling on the person who commits Kufr or Shirk, so that he can be in harmony with his people; even if he does not like Kufr nor Shirk, and does not believe in it; but only does it because of his love for his country, wealth, or relatives.

c- He utters words of Kufr jokingly, for amusement, as was seen from the troops mentioned in the verses at-Tawbah 9/65-66:


وَلَئِن سَأَلْتَهُمْ لَيَقُولُنَّ إِنَّمَا كُنَّا نَخُوضُ وَنَلْعَبُ قُلْ أَبِاللّهِ وَآيَاتِهِ وَرَسُولِهِ كُنتُمْ تَسْتَهْزِئُونَ لاَ تَعْتَذِرُواْ قَدْ كَفَرْتُم بَعْدَ إِيمَانِكُمْ إِن نَّعْفُ عَن طَآئِفَةٍ مِّنكُمْ نُعَذِّبْ طَآئِفَةً بِأَنَّهُمْ كَانُواْ مُجْرِمِينَ

"If thou dost question them, they declare (with emphasis): We were only talking idly and in play. Say: Was it at Allah, and His Signs, and His Messenger, that ye were mocking? Make ye no excuses: ye have rejected Faith after ye had accepted it. If We pardon some of you, We will punish others amongst you, for that they are sinners." (at-Tawbah 9/65-66)

d- He says (or commits) Kufr because he was coerced, not because of his own choice, while his heart is firm upon Iman and Tawhid. So this is someone who will be pardoned, because he was under coercion.

As for the first three situations, the person becomes a Kafir, as is clear from the verses. And this refutes those who say that no one can be declared a Kafir, even if he speaks with Kufr or does actions of Kufr, until what it is in his heart is known. And this is an evil saying which contradicts the Qur’an and Sunnah. Rather, this saying is from the heretical Murji’ah.
Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said:

إِنَّ النَّاسَ دَخَلُوا فِي دِينِ اللهِ أَفْوَاجًا، وَسَيَخْرُجُونَ مِنْهُ أَفْوَاجًا

"Verily, the people have entered into the religion of Allah in crowds and they will also leave it in crowds." (Ahmad, Musnad)

The Evidences Against The Collaborator

* The First Evidence Against The Collaborator *

The Statement of Allah:

وَلَن تَرْضَى عَنكَ الْيَهُودُ وَلاَ النَّصَارَى حَتَّى تَتَّبِعَ مِلَّتَهُمْ

"And never will the Jews nor the Christians be pleased with you, until you follow their religion." (al-Baqarah 2/120)

So Allah has informed that the Jews and the Christians, and likewise the Mushrikun, would never be satisfied with Rasulullah (sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam) until he would follow their religion, and bear witness that they are upon the Truth. Then Allah said:


ُلْ إِنََّ هُدَى اللّهِ هُوَ الْهُدَى وَلَئِنِ اتَّبَعْتَ أَهْوَاءهُم بَعْدَ الَّذِي جَاءكَ مِنَ الْعِلْمِ مَا لَكَ مِنَ اللّهِ مِن وَلِيٍّ وَلاَ نَصِيرٍ

"Say: Verily, the Guidance of Allah; that is the (only) Guidance. And if you were to follow their desires after what you have received of Knowledge (i.e., Qur’an), then you would have against Allah neither any protector nor any helper." (al-Baqarah 2/120)

And in another verse:


مِّن بَعْدِ مَا جَاءكَ مِنَ الْعِلْمِ إِنَّكَ إِذَاً لَّمِنَ الظَّالِمِينَ

"…Then indeed you will be one of the Dhalimin1 (wrong-doers)." (al-Baqarah 2/145)

So if Rasulullah (sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam) followed their religion -only externally, without the belief of the heart2, rather out of Khawf (fear) from their evil and out of Mudahanah- he would have been one of the Dhalimin. So what about the one who displays to the worshipers of the Qubur3 and the Qibab, that they are upon Truth and correct guidance? Indeed, they wouldn’t be satisfied except by this!



Quote
1- This word means "those who do Dhulm" which means oppression, wrongdoing, etc. And the worst form of Dhulm is mentioned in the following verses:

إِنَّ الشِّرْكَ لَظُلْمٌ عَظِيمٌ

"Verily, committing Shirk is a Great Dhulm." (Luqman 31/13)

And also in the verse:


َلاَ تَدْعُ مِن دُونِ  اللّهِ مَا لاَ يَنفَعُكَ وَلاَ يَضُرُّكَ فَإِن فَعَلْتَ فَإِنَّكَ إِذاً مِّنَ الظَّالِمِينَ

"And invoke not besides Allah any such thing that will neither profit you nor harm you; but if (in case) you did so; you shall certainly be one of the Dhalimin." (Yunus 10/106)

And also in the verse:


وَمَن لَّمْ يَحْكُم بِمَا أنزَلَ اللّهُ فَأُوْلَـئِكَ هُمُ الظَّالِمُونَ

"And whosoever does not judge by that which Allah has revealed, such are the Dhalimun." (al-Ma’idah 5/45)

2- Since Rasulullah (sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam) has received knowledge from Allah, it would be impossible for him) to believe in other than Islam.

3- Graves, tombs, mausoleums, etc.
Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said:

إِنَّ النَّاسَ دَخَلُوا فِي دِينِ اللهِ أَفْوَاجًا، وَسَيَخْرُجُونَ مِنْهُ أَفْوَاجًا

"Verily, the people have entered into the religion of Allah in crowds and they will also leave it in crowds." (Ahmad, Musnad)

* The Second Evidence Against The Collaborator *

The Statement of Allah Most High:


وَلاَ يَزَالُونَ يُقَاتِلُونَكُمْ حَتَّىَ يَرُدُّوكُمْ عَن دِينِكُمْ إِنِ اسْتَطَاعُواْ وَمَن يَرْتَدِدْ مِنكُمْ عَن دِينِهِ فَيَمُتْ وَهُوَ كَافِرٌ فَأُوْلَـئِكَ حَبِطَتْ أَعْمَالُهُمْ فِي الدُّنْيَا وَالآخِرَةِ وَأُوْلَـئِكَ أَصْحَابُ النَّارِ هُمْ فِيهَا خَالِدُونَ

"And they will never cease fighting you until they turn you back from your Din (Islam), if they can. And whosoever of you turns back from his Din, and dies as a Kafir, then his deeds will be lost in this life and in the Hereafter. And they will be the dwellers of the Fire. They will abide therein forever." (al-Baqarah 2/217)

So He (subhanahu wa ta'ala) informs that the Kuffar will never cease fighting the Muslims until they turn them back from their Din; if they are able to so. And He did not permit harmonizing with the Kuffar out of fear for one’s life, wealth, and sanctity. Rather, He has informed about whoever harmonizes with them after they have fought him -in order to repel their evil- that he is a Murtad (apostate).

So if he dies upon his Riddah (apostasy) after the Mushrikun have fought him, then he is from the People of the Fire who will eternally be in it. So what about the person who harmonizes with the Mushrikin without even being fought?

So if there is no excuse for the one who harmonizes with them (i.e., the Kuffar) after he has been fought; then you know that the ones who go to them and rush to be in harmony with them -without any fear or fighting- that they are even less worthy of having an excuse; and that they are Kuffar, Murtaddun.
Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said:

إِنَّ النَّاسَ دَخَلُوا فِي دِينِ اللهِ أَفْوَاجًا، وَسَيَخْرُجُونَ مِنْهُ أَفْوَاجًا

"Verily, the people have entered into the religion of Allah in crowds and they will also leave it in crowds." (Ahmad, Musnad)

* The Third Evidence Against The Collaborator *

His (Blessed and Most High is He) Statement:

لاَّ يَتَّخِذِ الْمُؤْمِنُونَ الْكَافِرِينَ أَوْلِيَاء مِن دُوْنِ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ وَمَن يَفْعَلْ ذَلِكَ فَلَيْسَ مِنَ اللّهِ فِي شَيْءٍ إِلاَّ أَن تَتَّقُواْ مِنْهُمْ تُقَاةً وَيُحَذِّرُكُمُ

“Let not the Mu’minun take the Kafirin as Awliya (pl., Wali; friends, allies, supporters, helpers, protectors) instead of the Mu’minin; and whosoever does that then he will never be helped by Allah in any way, except if you indeed fear a danger from them.” (Al-i Imran 3/28)

So He (Glory Be to Him) has prohibited the Mu’minin from taking the Kafirin as Awliya, friends, and companions instead of the Mu’minin; even if they are afraid of them. And He informed that whosoever does that
فَلَيْسَ مِنَ اللّهِ فِي شَيْءٍ “then he will never be helped by Allah in any way”: in other words, he will never be from the Awliya of Allah who are promised salvation in the Hereafter.

إِلاَّ أَن تَتَّقُواْ مِنْهُمْ تُقَاةً وَيُحَذِّرُكُمُ “Except if you indeed fear a danger from them”: and it is that the person is subjugated by them, and is not capable of being hostile against them, and thus displays companionship towards them1 while his heart is still firm upon Baghdha and Adawah2; waiting for the preventative factor to cease; and once it ceases, he returns back to Adawah and Baghdha.

So how about the one who takes them as Awliya instead of the Mu’minin without any excuse; except that he preferred the life of this world rather than the Hereafter, and because he feared the Mushrikin, rather than fearing Allah? Allah has not made “Khawf” (fear) from them an acceptable excuse. Rather, He (Most High) has said:


إِنَّمَا ذَلِكُمُ الشَّيْطَانُ يُخَوِّفُ أَوْلِيَاءهُ فَلاَ تَخَافُوهُمْ وَخَافُونِ إِن كُنتُم مُّؤْمِنِينَ

“It is only Shaytan that suggests to you to fear his Awliya (i.e., Mushrikun); so fear them not, but fear Me (Alone), if you are Mu’minin.” (Al-i Imran 3/175)3



Quote
1- But this does not mean that it is allowed to Muthaharah (help the Kuffar against the Muslims). For Ikrah (coercion), if it is truly coercion, then it is permissible to say words of Kufr, and do actions of Kufr; as long as it does not involve hurting another Muslim; and if it does involve hurting another Muslim, then it is not permissible according to Ijmaa (consensus); for he is not allowed to kill another brother for the sake of his own life.

Imam Nawawi says: “As for killing (a Muslim), then it is not permissible even under Ikrah, according to Ijmaa.” (al-Minhaj Sharh Sahih Muslim Ibn’ul Hajjaj, 18/16-17)

Ibn Rajab al-Hanbali said: “The scholars are united upon the fact that if someone is (being) coerced to kill a Muslim, then it is (still) not permissible to kill him. Because he has actually chosen to kill that other person in order to save his own life from being killed. And this has Ijmaa of the scholars that it is transgression.” (Jami’ul Ulum wa’l Hikam, 2/371)

Shaykh’ul Islam Ibn Taymiyyah said regarding those who are coerced by the Tatars to help them against the Muslims: “Even if he is coerced to fight (against the Muslims) in this time of tribulation, it is still not permissible for him to fight. Rather, it is obligatory that he destroys his weapons, and be patient until he is martyred… There is no doubt that it is obligatory upon him that, if he is forced to be present (on the battlefield), that he does not fight; even if the Muslims end up killing him… Indeed it is not permissible for him to kill another Muslim according to consensus. So if he is coerced and threatened that he will be killed unless he kills another Muslim; then it is still not permissible for him to kill someone for the sake of not being killed himself. It is not permissible to oppress someone for the sake of not being killed himself.” (Majma’ul Fatawa, 28/538-539)

2- Baghdha: Hatred.

Adawah: Hostility, Enmity. As appears in the verse:

قَدْ كَانَتْ لَكُمْ أُسْوَةٌ حَسَنَةٌ فِي إِبْرَاهِيمَ وَالَّذِينَ مَعَهُ إِذْ قَالُوا لِقَوْمِهِمْ إِنَّا بُرَاء مِنكُمْ وَمِمَّا تَعْبُدُونَ مِن دُونِ اللَّهِ كَفَرْنَا بِكُمْ وَبَدَا بَيْنَنَا وَبَيْنَكُمُ الْعَدَاوَةُ وَالْبَغْضَاء أَبَداً حَتَّى تُؤْمِنُوا بِاللَّهِ وَحْدَهُ إِلَّا قَوْلَ إِبْرَاهِيمَ لِأَبِيهِ لَأَسْتَغْفِرَنَّ لَكَ وَمَا أَمْلِكُ لَكَ مِنَ اللَّهِ مِن شَيْءٍ رَّبَّنَا عَلَيْكَ تَوَكَّلْنَا وَإِلَيْكَ أَنَبْنَا وَإِلَيْكَ الْمَصِيرُ

“There has indeed been an excellent example for you in Ibrahim and those with him, when they said to their people: Verily, we are free from you and whatever you worship besides Allah. We have rejected you and there has emerged between us and you, hostility and hatred forever, until you believe in Allah alone.” (al-Mumtahinah 60/4)

3- Allah Ta’ala also stated the following in this regards:

فَلاَ تَخْشَوُاْ النَّاسَ وَاخْشَوْنِ وَلاَ تَشْتَرُواْ بِآيَاتِي ثَمَناً قَلِيلاً

“Therefore do not fear men, but fear Me, and do not sell My verses for a miserable price.” (al-Ma’idah 5/44)
Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said:

إِنَّ النَّاسَ دَخَلُوا فِي دِينِ اللهِ أَفْوَاجًا، وَسَيَخْرُجُونَ مِنْهُ أَفْوَاجًا

"Verily, the people have entered into the religion of Allah in crowds and they will also leave it in crowds." (Ahmad, Musnad)

* The Fourth Evidence Against The Collaborator*

The statement of Allah (Most High):

يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوَاْ إِن تُطِيعُواْ الَّذِينَ كَفَرُواْ يَرُدُّوكُمْ عَلَى أَعْقَابِكُمْ فَتَنقَلِبُواْ خَاسِرِينَ
 
“O you who Believe! If you obey those who disbelieved, they will send you back on your heels, then you will turn back (from iman) as losers.” (Al-i Imran 3/149)

So He (Most High) informed that if the Mu’minin obey the Kuffar, then there is no doubt that they would turn them back on their heels away from Islam. Because indeed, they are not satisfied with them with anything less than Kufr.

And He informed that if they do that, they would become losers in this world and in the Hereafter, and he did not permit harmonizing and obeying them due to Khawf from them.

And this is the current situation; they are not content with those who agree with them unless they testify that they are upon the Truth, display Hostility and Hatred against the Muslims, and cut off assistance to them.

Then He states:


بَلِ اللّهُ مَوْلاَكُمْ وَهُوَ خَيْرُ النَّاصِرِينَ
 
“Nay, Allah is your Mawla (i.e., Patron, Lord, Helper, Protector) and He is the Best of helpers.” (Al-i Imran 3/150)

So He (Most High), informs that Allah is the Mawla of the Mu’minin and their Helper, and that He is the Best of Helpers. So in allegiance to Him and being under His obedience is enough provision and (it) is sufficient against obedience to the Kuffar.

Alas for the slaves! Those who knew Tawhid and were raised upon it and took it as their Din for a time; How they departed from the allegiance of the Lord of the Worlds, the Best of Helpers; to the allegiance of the Qibab and its people; and were satisfied with it in exchange of the Allegiance of the One in Whose Hand is the sovereignty of everything?


بِئْسَ لِلظَّالِمِينَ بَدَلاً

“What an evil exchange for the Dhalimin (oppressors)!” (al-Kahf 18/50)
Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said:

إِنَّ النَّاسَ دَخَلُوا فِي دِينِ اللهِ أَفْوَاجًا، وَسَيَخْرُجُونَ مِنْهُ أَفْوَاجًا

"Verily, the people have entered into the religion of Allah in crowds and they will also leave it in crowds." (Ahmad, Musnad)

* The Fifth Evidence Against The Collaborator *

His (Most High is He) Statement:

أَفَمَنِ اتَّبَعَ رِضْوَانَ اللّهِ كَمَن بَاء بِسَخْطٍ مِّنَ اللّهِ وَمَأْوَاهُ جَهَنَّمُ وَبِئْسَ الْمَصِيرُ
 
"Is the one who follows the good Pleasure of Allah, like the one who draws on himself the Wrath of Allah? And his abode is Hell; and worst, indeed, is that destination!" (Al-i Imran 3/162)

So He (Most High) has informed that not equal is the one who follows the Pleasure of Allah and the one who follows the Wrath of Allah and whose destination will be the Fire on the Day of Resurrection.

And there is no doubt that directing Ibadaah (worship) to ar-Rahman (The Most-Compassionate, Merciful, Gracious) Alone, and supporting it, and the fact that the individual is from its people, is from the Pleasure of Allah.

And (there is no doubt) that directing Ibadaah to the Qibab and the dead people, and supporting it, and being from amongst its people is from that which angers Allah.

So not equal with Allah are those who support His Tawhid, and His Da’wah (call) with Ikhlaas (sincerity), and are from the Mu’minin; and those who support Shirk and (support) the supplicating to the dead, and are from the Mushrikin.

So if they say:

"(Our excuse is that) we were scared!" It will be said to them:

"You have lied." And if they say:

"We do not become Muslim due to this fear!.." It will be said to them:

"Rather you shall fear from us!" And also:

"Allah has not made Khawf (fear) an excuse to follow that which angers Him and abandoning that which pleases Him."

And many of Ahl'ul Baatil (the People of Falsehood) only forsake the Truth because of fear that their worldly things will leave them; otherwise, they still recognize the Truth and believe in it; but despite this, they were not Muslims.

We ask them: Which group do you belong to? Is it the faction of the Muslimin, or is it the faction of the Kuffar?
Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said:

إِنَّ النَّاسَ دَخَلُوا فِي دِينِ اللهِ أَفْوَاجًا، وَسَيَخْرُجُونَ مِنْهُ أَفْوَاجًا

"Verily, the people have entered into the religion of Allah in crowds and they will also leave it in crowds." (Ahmad, Musnad)

* The Sixth Evidence Against The Collaborator *

His (Most High is He) Statement:

إِنَّ الَّذِينَ تَوَفَّاهُمُ الْمَلآئِكَةُ ظَالِمِي أَنْفُسِهِمْ قَالُواْ فِيمَ كُنتُمْ

“Verily! As for those whom the Angels take (in death) while they are wronging themselves (as they stayed among the mushrikin even though Hijrah (emigration) was obligatory for them), they (Angels) say (to them): In what (condition) were you?” (an-Nisa4/97)

In other words “Which group were you in? In the faction of the Muslims, or in the faction of the Mushrikin?”

So because they were not in the faction of the Muslims, they put forth the excuse that they were weak and oppressed; but the angels did not excuse them; and they said to them:


لَمْ تَكُنْ أَرْضُ اللّهِ وَاسِعَةً فَتُهَاجِرُواْ فِيهَا فَأُوْلَـئِكَ مَأْوَاهُمْ جَهَنَّمُ وَسَاءتْ مَصِيراً

“Was not the Earth of Allah spacious enough for you to emigrate therein? Such men will find their abode in Hell; and what an evil destination!” (an-Nisa 4/97)1

And no one with intellect will doubt that the people of the countries that have rebelled against the Muslims; (those people) are with the Mushrikin, in their group and in their Jama’ah (community).

This, even though the verse was sent down regarding some people of Makkah who had embraced Islam, but did not emigrate (i.e., did not do Hijrah).2 So when the Mushrikun went out to Badr, they forced these Muslims to join their ranks; so, out of fear, they went out.

So the Muslims (who had emigrated to Madinah) killed them on the Day of Badr; and after they found out that they had killed them they became regretful, and said: “We have killed our own brothers!” So Allah revealed this verse regarding them.3

So what about the people of the countries;
 
those who used to be upon Islam, then removed its yoke from their necks and

showed harmony to the people of Shirk regarding their Din,

and they entered under their obedience,

and they gave them shelter and supported them; and they abandoned the People of Tawhid, and followed other than their path;

and they declared them to be mistaken,

and it became wide spread amongst them (the Mushrikin) the swearing at them (the Muslims),

insulting them, shaming them, ridiculing them;

and mocking them because of the fact that they are firm upon their Tawhid and in their patience upon it and upon Jihaad in its cause;

and they aided them against the People of Tawhid;

voluntarily, not out of coercion; willingly, and not out of compulsion!?

So those ones are more deserving of being labeled with “Kufr” -and worthier of being thrown into the Fire- than those who did not do Hijrah because of their extreme attachment to their homeland and out of fear from the kuffar, and who went out in their army under compulsion and fear.

And if someone were to ask: “Wasn’t Ikrah (coercion, force, compulsion, subjugation) an excuse for those who were killed on the Day of Badr, for them to go out (along with the mushrikin against the Muslims)?”

Then it shall be replied: “It was not accepted because they had no excuse in the beginning of the matter, when they had (chosen to) settle themselves amongst the kuffar; so they are not excused after that due to Ikrah, because they (themselves) are the reason for that (i.e., they were the ones who chose to be amongst the mushrikin in the beginning), as they resided with them and abandoned the Hijrah (due to their own decision).”

1- Allah Ta'ala also stated:

يَا عِبَادِيَ الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا إِنَّ أَرْضِي وَاسِعَةٌ فَإِيَّايَ فَاعْبُدُونِ

“O My slaves who believe! Certainly, spacious is My Earth- therefore worship Me Alone.” (al-Ankabut 29/56)

2- Allah Ta’ala stated:

وَالَّذِينَ آمَنُواْ وَلَمْ يُهَاجِرُواْ مَا لَكُم مِّن وَلاَيَتِهِم مِّن شَيْءٍ حَتَّى يُهَاجِرُواْ

“And as for those who have believed but did not emigrate, you owe no duty of protection to them until they emigrate.” (al-Anfal 8/72)

3- This was reported in the Ahadith as one of them was narrated from Ibn Abbas (radiyallahu anhuma ajmain) which was recorded by Bukhari:


فَلَقِيتُ عِكْرِمَةَ مَوْلَى ابْنِ عَبَّاسٍ فَأَخْبَرْتُهُ، فَنَهَانِي عَنْ ذَلِكَ أَشَدَّ النَّهْىِ، ثُمَّ قَالَ أَخْبَرَنِي ابْنُ عَبَّاسٍ أَنَّ نَاسًا مِنَ الْمُسْلِمِينَ كَانُوا مَعَ الْمُشْرِكِينَ يُكَثِّرُونَ سَوَادَ الْمُشْرِكِينَ عَلَى رَسُولِ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم يَأْتِي السَّهْمُ فَيُرْمَى بِهِ، فَيُصِيبُ أَحَدَهُمْ فَيَقْتُلُهُ أَوْ يُضْرَبُ فَيُقْتَلُ، فَأَنْزَلَ اللَّهُ ‏‏إِنَّ الَّذِينَ تَوَفَّاهُمُ الْمَلاَئِكَةُ ظَالِمِي أَنْفُسِهِمْ‏

"Ikrima, the freed slave of Ibn Abbaas, and informed him (about it), and he forbade me strongly to do so (i.e., to enlist in that army), and then said: Ibn Abbaas (radiyallahu anhuma ajmain) informed me that some Muslim people were with the pagans, increasing the number of the pagans against Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam). An arrow used to be shot which would hit one of them (the Muslims in the company of the pagans) and kill him, or he would be struck and killed (with a sword). Then Allah revealed:

إِنَّ الَّذِينَ تَوَفَّاهُمُ الْمَلاَئِكَةُ ظَالِمِي أَنْفُسِهِمْ‏‏

"Verily! As for those whom the angels take (in death) while they are wronging themselves (as they stayed among the Mushrikin)." (an-Nisa 4/97)" (Bukhari, #4596, #7085)

Similars of it also recorded by: Nasai, as-Sunnan al-Kubra, Kitaab’ut Tafsir; Nasai, Tuhfat’ul Ashraf, 5/166; Tabari, Tafsir, 5/234; Bayhaqi, as-Sunnan’ul Kubra, 9/12; Tabarani, al-Awsat; Ibn Rahawayh, al-Isma’ili and Ibn’ul Mundhir; Fath’ul Bari, 8/263; Ibn Abi Hatim and Ibn Mardawayh; ad-Durr’ul Manthur, 2/206; al-Bazzar, Musnad; Haythami, Mujma’uz Zawa’id, 7/10
Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said:

إِنَّ النَّاسَ دَخَلُوا فِي دِينِ اللهِ أَفْوَاجًا، وَسَيَخْرُجُونَ مِنْهُ أَفْوَاجًا

"Verily, the people have entered into the religion of Allah in crowds and they will also leave it in crowds." (Ahmad, Musnad)

* The Seventh Evidence Against The Collaborator *

His (Subhanahu wa Ta'ala) statement:

وَقَدْ نَزَّلَ عَلَيْكُمْ فِي الْكِتَابِ أَنْ إِذَا سَمِعْتُمْ آيَاتِ اللّهِ يُكَفَرُ بِهَا وَيُسْتَهْزَأُ بِهَا فَلاَ تَقْعُدُواْ مَعَهُمْ حَتَّى يَخُوضُواْ فِي حَدِيثٍ غَيْرِهِ إِنَّكُمْ إِذاً مِّثْلُهُمْ إِنَّ اللّهَ جَامِعُ الْمُنَافِقِينَ وَالْكَافِرِينَ فِي جَهَنَّمَ جَمِيعاً

"And it has already been revealed to you in the Book (Qur’an) that when you hear the Verses of Allah being denied and mocked, then do not sit with them, until they engage in a talk other than that; (but if you stayed with them) certainly in that case you would be (just) like them." (an-Nisa 4/140)

So He mentioned that He has sent down a Command upon the Mu’minin, in the Book,1 that when they hear the verses of Allah being denied and ridiculed, that they should not sit with them until they discuss something else; and that whosoever sits with those disbelieving in the verses of Allah and mocking them, at the time of their Kufr and mockery, then that person is just like them.

And He did not differentiate between the Kha’if (someone with Khawf; feared) or other than him; except the Mukrah. This was when they were all in one single country, during the dawn of Islam.

So what about the one who is in the spaciousness, dignity, and various countries of Islam and then:

he invites the Kafirin and mockers of the Ayat of Allah, to come to his countries;

and accepts them as allies, companions, and associates;

and he hears their Kufr and their mockery and consents to it;

and expels the People of Tawhid, and keeps them far away?!

1- Allah Ta'ala previously stated:

وَمَا عَلَى الَّذِينَ يَتَّقُونَ مِنْ حِسَابِهِم مِّن شَيْءٍ وَلَـكِن ذِكْرَى لَعَلَّهُمْ يَتَّقُونَ

"When thou seest men engaged in vain discourse about Our Signs, turn away from them unless they turn to a different theme. If Satan ever makes thee forget, then after recollection, sit not thou in the company of those who do wrong." (al-An‘am 6/68)
Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said:

* The Eigth Evidence Against The Collaborator *

His (Subhanahu wa Ta'ala) statement:

يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُواْ لاَ تَتَّخِذُواْ الْيَهُودَ وَالنَّصَارَى أَوْلِيَاء بَعْضُهُمْ أَوْلِيَاء بَعْضٍ وَمَن يَتَوَلَّهُم مِّنكُمْ فَإِنَّهُ مِنْهُمْ إِنَّ اللّهَ لاَ يَهْدِي الْقَوْمَ الظَّالِمِينَ

“O you who believe! Do not take the Jews and Christians as Awliya. They are but Awliya of each other. And if any amongst you takes them as Awliya, then surely he is one of them. Verily, Allah guides not those people who are the Dhalimin.” (al-Ma’idah 5/51)1

So He (Subhanahu wa Ta'ala) has forbidden the Mu’minin from taking the Jews and Christians as Awliya.

And He informed that whosoever from amongst the Mu’minin allies himself with them, then he is one of them.2 And likewise is the ruling upon whosoever allies himself with the Kuffar, from the Majus and idol worshipers; then he is one of them.

And if someone was to argue, that directing Ibadaah to the Qibab and calling upon the dead saints is not Shirk; and that its people are not Mushrikun; Then his matter has become apparent; and his arrogance and Kufr have become clear.

And He (Blessed and Most High is He) has not differentiated between the Kha’if and other than him. Rather, He (subhanahu wa ta'ala) informed that those who have a disease in their hearts do that out of fear of calamity.

And likewise is the condition of those Murtaddin; they were afraid of calamity.

And whatever remained in their hearts of Iman in the Truthful Promise of Allah, to give Victory to the People of Tawhid was removed. So they went quickly and raced to the people of Shirk, out of fear of calamity.

He (subhanahu wa ta'ala) said:


فَعَسَى اللّهُ أَن يَأْتِيَ بِالْفَتْحِ أَوْ أَمْرٍ مِّنْ عِندِهِ فَيُصْبِحُواْ عَلَى مَا أَسَرُّواْ فِي أَنْفُسِهِمْ نَادِمِينَ

“Perhaps Allah may bring a victory or a decision according to His Will. Then they would become regretful for what they have been keeping as a secret in themselves.” (al-Ma’idah 5/52)



Quote
1- The Companion Hudhayfah (radiyallahu anh) said: "Each of you should fear that he might become a Jew or Christian while not even knowing it," and then he recited:

وَمَن يَتَوَلَّهُم مِّنكُمْ فَإِنَّهُ مِنْهُمْ

"And if any amongst you takes them as Awliya (Tawalli), then surely he is one of them." (al-Ma’idah 5/51) (ad-Durr'ul Manthur, 3/100)

In verses al-Ma'idah 5/52-53, Allah clarifies even more:


فَتَرَى الَّذِينَ فِي قُلُوبِهِم مَّرَضٌ يُسَارِعُونَ فِيهِمْ يَقُولُونَ نَخْشَى أَن تُصِيبَنَا دَآئِرَةٌ فَعَسَى اللّهُ أَن يَأْتِيَ بِالْفَتْحِ أَوْ أَمْرٍ مِّنْ عِندِهِ فَيُصْبِحُواْ عَلَى مَا أَسَرُّواْ فِي أَنْفُسِهِمْ نَادِمِينَ وَيَقُولُ الَّذِينَ آمَنُواْ أَهَـؤُلاء الَّذِينَ أَقْسَمُواْ بِاللّهِ جَهْدَ أَيْمَانِهِمْ إِنَّهُمْ لَمَعَكُمْ حَبِطَتْ أَعْمَالُهُمْ فَأَصْبَحُواْ خَاسِرِينَ

"And you see in those in whose hearts there is a disease (of hypocrisy), they hurry to their friendship, saying: We fear lest some misfortune of a disaster may befall us… And those who have Iman will say: Are these the men (hypocrites) who swore their strongest oaths by Allah that they were with you (O Muslims)? All that they did has been in futility, so they have become losers." (al-Ma’idah 5/52-53)

2- Regarding the verse:

وَمَن يَتَوَلَّهُم مِّنكُمْ فَإِنَّهُ مِنْهُمْ

"And if any amongst you takes them as Awliya (Tawalli), then surely he is one of them." (al-Ma’idah 5/51)

Ibn Hazm said: "It is correct that this verse is only to be taken literally, meaning that he is a Kafir from the group of the Kuffar; and this is the Truth, not even two Muslims will disagree on this issue." (al-Muhalla, 11/138)
Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said:

إِنَّ النَّاسَ دَخَلُوا فِي دِينِ اللهِ أَفْوَاجًا، وَسَيَخْرُجُونَ مِنْهُ أَفْوَاجًا

"Verily, the people have entered into the religion of Allah in crowds and they will also leave it in crowds." (Ahmad, Musnad)

* The Nineth Evidence Against The Collaborator *

His (Subhanahu wa Ta'ala) statement:

تَرَى كَثِيراً مِّنْهُمْ يَتَوَلَّوْنَ الَّذِينَ كَفَرُواْ لَبِئْسَ مَا قَدَّمَتْ لَهُمْ أَنفُسُهُمْ أَن سَخِطَ اللّهُ عَلَيْهِمْ وَفِي الْعَذَابِ هُمْ خَالِدُونَ

"You see many of them taking those who have disbelieved as Awliya. Evil indeed is that which their ownselves have sent forth before them; for that (reason) Allah’s Wrath fell upon them, and in the Torment they will abide forever." (al-Ma’idah 5/80)

So He (subhanahu wa ta'ala) has made clear that merely having Muwalat (Friendship, Befriending, Alliance, Loyalty, etc.) with the Kuffar, necessitates the Wrath of Allah and eternity in torment, even if the person is Kha’if. (None is excused from this ruling) except the Mukrah, with its (real) conditions.1

So what if this was combined with clear, open Kufr; and it is hostility towards Tawhid and its people, cooperating and assisting to eradicate the worshiping of Allah only, and to establish the worshiping of other than Him?

1- And what about cooperating and assisting to eradicate His Legislation Alone -the Qur’an and Sunnah- and helping to establish the legislations which oppose His; such as the fabricated man-made laws, or the Yasiq?
Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said:

إِنَّ النَّاسَ دَخَلُوا فِي دِينِ اللهِ أَفْوَاجًا، وَسَيَخْرُجُونَ مِنْهُ أَفْوَاجًا

"Verily, the people have entered into the religion of Allah in crowds and they will also leave it in crowds." (Ahmad, Musnad)

* The Tenth Evidence Against The Collaborator *

His (Subhanahu wa Ta'ala) statement:

وَلَوْ كَانُوا يُؤْمِنُونَ بِالله والنَّبِيِّ وَمَا أُنزِلَ إِلَيْهِ مَا اتَّخَذُوهُمْ أَوْلِيَاء وَلَـكِنَّ كَثِيراً مِّنْهُمْ فَاسِقُونَ

"And had they believed in Allah, and in the Prophet, and in what has been revealed to him; they would have never taken them (the Kuffar) as Awliya. But many of them are Fasiqun." (al-Ma’idah 5/81)

So He (subhanahu wa ta'ala) mentioned that Muwalat of the Kuffar is something which invalidates Iman in Allah, the Prophet (sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam), and that which was revealed to him.

Then He informed that the reason for that (that they took the Kuffar as Awliya) is because of the fact that many of them are Fasiqun. And He did not differentiate between the one who feared calamities, and the one who didn’t fear.

And similar is the condition of many of the Murtaddin (today); before their apostasy, many of them were Fasiqun. So that (Fisq/rebellion) dragged them into allying with the Kuffar, and Riddah from Islam.

We seek refuge with Allah from that.
Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said:

إِنَّ النَّاسَ دَخَلُوا فِي دِينِ اللهِ أَفْوَاجًا، وَسَيَخْرُجُونَ مِنْهُ أَفْوَاجًا

"Verily, the people have entered into the religion of Allah in crowds and they will also leave it in crowds." (Ahmad, Musnad)

* The Eleventh Evidence Against The Collaborator *

His (Subhanahu wa Ta'ala) statement:

وَإِنَّ الشَّيَاطِينَ لَيُوحُونَ إِلَى أَوْلِيَآئِهِمْ لِيُجَادِلُوكُمْ وَإِنْ أَطَعْتُمُوهُمْ إِنَّكُمْ لَمُشْرِكُونَ

"And certainly, the Shayatin (devils) do inspire their Awliya (from mankind) to dispute with you, and if you obey them, then you would indeed be Mushrikun." (al-An’am 6/121)

And this verse was sent down when the Mushrikun said to the Muslims:

“You eat from that which you killed, but you don’t eat from which Allah has killed!?”

So Allah revealed this verse. (Abu Dawud, Sunnan, 2818; Nasai, al-Mujtaba, 7/237; Tirmidhi, al-Jami, 3069; Hakim, Mustadrak, 4/233; Tabari, Tafsir, 8/17; Bayhaqi, as-Sunnan al-Kubra, 9/241; al-Furyabi; Ibn Abi Shaybah; Abd Ibn Humayd; Ibn al-Mundhir; Ibn Abi Hatim; an-Nuhas; Abu ash-Shaykh; Ibn Mardawayh; Tabarani; ad-Durr'ul Manthur, 3/43)

So if the one who obeyed the Mushrikin by permitting Maytah (a dead animal), became a Mushrik; without any differentiation between the Kha’if and other than him, except the Mukrah;

then what about the one who obeys them in permitting their Muwalat;

being with them, aiding them,

bearing witness that they are upon the Truth,

permitting the (spilling of the) blood of the Muslims and (the seizing of) their wealth,

and leaving the Faction of the Muslims,

and joining the faction of the Mushrikin?!

Indeed those ones are more deserving of Kufr and Shirk, compared to those who agreed with them in permitting the Maytah.
Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said:

إِنَّ النَّاسَ دَخَلُوا فِي دِينِ اللهِ أَفْوَاجًا، وَسَيَخْرُجُونَ مِنْهُ أَفْوَاجًا

"Verily, the people have entered into the religion of Allah in crowds and they will also leave it in crowds." (Ahmad, Musnad)

* The Twelveth Evidence Against The Collaborator *

His (Subhanahu wa Ta'ala) statement:

وَاتْلُ عَلَيْهِمْ نَبَأَ الَّذِيَ آتَيْنَاهُ آيَاتِنَا فَانسَلَخَ مِنْهَا فَأَتْبَعَهُ الشَّيْطَانُ فَكَانَ مِنَ الْغَاوِينَ

"And recite to them (O Muhammad) the story of him to whom We gave Our Verses, but he threw them away; so Shaytan followed him up, and he became of those who went astray." (al-A’raf 7/175)

And this verse was revealed regarding a devout and pious Alim (scholar) during the time of the Children of Isra’il, whose name is accounted as Bal’am.1 He used to know al-Ism'ul A’dham (The Greatest Name of Allah).

Ibn Abi Talhah2 reported on the authority of Ibn Abbas (radiyallahu anh):

"When Musa (alayhi salam) came to them, in other words upon the Jabbarin (People of Great Strength), the children of his uncles and his people came to him and said: Indeed Musa is a very strong man, and he has with him many warriors. And if he were to conquer us, he will destroy us. So call upon Allah and ask Him to turn Musa and and those with him away from us. So Bal’am replied: Indeed, if I supplicate to Allah against Musa, I would lose in this world and in the Hereafter. But they kept on urging him until he supplicated for them. So Allah cast him away from what (righteousness) he was upon; and that is His saying: "…but he threw them away; so Shaytan followed him up, and he became of those who went astray."3

And Ibn Zayd4 said: "His whims and desires were with his people," meaning the ones who fought against Musa (alayhi salam) and his people.

So He (subhanahu wa ta'ala) has mentioned the affair of this traitor who forsook the verses of Allah; after Allah had given it to him, even though he understood it and was from its people; but then "he threw them away", meaning he abandoned acting upon it. And it was mentioned that his "abandonment of the verses of Allah" means; assisting the Mushrikin and supporting them with his opinion, with the Du’a against Musa (alayhi salam) and his followers that Allah turn them away from his people, due to his Khawf and sympathy for his people; even though he knew the Truth and was sure of it, spoke with it, and testified for it, and worshiped (Allah). But his obedience to his people and his relatives and his desires, and his clinging to the Earth, kept him from acting upon it; and this was "abandonment of the verses of Allah."

And this is what is present in those Murtaddin, and even worse. Because

verily Allah has bestowed upon them His Verses which contain the commands of His Tawhid,

and calling upon Him Alone without any partners;

and the prohibitions against Shirk with Him and calling upon other than Him; and the commandment for Muwalat with the Mu’minin,

loving them and aiding them, holding fast to the Rope of Allah all together, being with the Mu’minin;

and the commandment for the hostility against the Mushrikin, hating them, waging Jihaad against them, and abandoning them;

and the commandment for the demolition of the statues, the elimination of prostitution, homosexuality, and all abominable things.

And they recognize and accept that (these orders are from Allah), but yet then they abandon all of that.

Surely, they are more worthy of being labeled with "abandoning the verses of Allah", more deserving of being labeled with Kufr and Riddah than Bal’am, or (at the very least) they are exactly like him.



Quote
1- Bal’am Ibn Ba’ura, and in other accounts as "Bal’am" without the Alif. And in another account, Bal’am Ibn Amir. (Tabari, Tafsir, 13/257; Hakim, Mustadrak, 2/325)

2- He is Abu al-Hasan Ali Ibn Salim, a servant of Ibn Abbas (radiyallahu anh). He died in the year 143H. (at-Taqrib, 402)

3- The Jabbarin (People of Great Strength) are mentioned in the verses:


لَهُمَا الشَّيْطَانُ لِيُبْدِيَ لَهُمَا مَا وُورِيَ عَنْهُمَا مِن سَوْءَاتِهِمَا وَقَالَ فَوَسْوَسَ
مَا نَهَاكُمَا رَبُّكُمَا عَنْ هَـذِهِ الشَّجَرَةِ إِلاَّ أَن تَكُونَا مَلَكَيْنِ أَوْ تَكُونَا مِنَ الْخَالِدِينَ وَقَاسَمَهُمَا إِنِّي لَكُمَا لَمِنَ النَّاصِحِينَ
فَدَلاَّهُمَا بِغُرُورٍ فَلَمَّا ذَاقَا الشَّجَرَةَ بَدَتْ لَهُمَا سَوْءَاتُهُمَا وَطَفِقَا يَخْصِفَانِ عَلَيْهِمَا مِن وَرَقِ الْجَنَّةِ وَنَادَاهُمَا رَبُّهُمَا أَلَمْ أَنْهَكُمَا عَن تِلْكُمَا الشَّجَرَةِ وَأَقُل لَّكُمَا إِنَّ الشَّيْطَآنَ لَكُمَا عَدُوٌّ مُّبِينٌ قَالاَ رَبَّنَا ظَلَمْنَا أَنفُسَنَا وَإِن لَّمْ تَغْفِرْ لَنَا وَتَرْحَمْنَا لَنَكُونَنَّ مِنَ
الْخَاسِرِينَ قَالَ اهْبِطُواْ بَعْضُكُمْ لِبَعْضٍ عَدُوٌّ وَلَكُمْ فِي الأَرْضِ مُسْتَقَرٌّ وَمَتَاعٌ إِلَى حِينٍ قَالَ فِيهَا تَحْيَوْنَ وَفِيهَا تَمُوتُونَ وَمِنْهَا تُخْرَجُونَ يَا بَنِي آدَمَ قَدْ أَنزَلْنَا عَلَيْكُمْ لِبَاساً آيَاتِ اللّهِ لَعَلَّهُمْ يَذَّكَّرُونَ يُوَارِي سَوْءَاتِكُمْ وَرِيشاً وَلِبَاسُ التَّقْوَىَ ذَلِكَ خَيْرٌ ذَلِكَ مِنْ


"Remember Musa said to his people: O my people! Call in remembrance the favour of Allah unto you, when He produced prophets among you, made you kings, and gave you what He had not given to any other among the peoples. O my people! Enter the holy land which Allah hath assigned unto you, and turn not back ignominiously, for then will ye be overthrown, to your own ruin. They said: O Musa! In this land are a people of exceeding strength: Never shall we enter it until they leave it: if (once) they leave, then shall we enter. (But) among (their) Allah-fearing men were two on whom Allah had bestowed His grace: They said: Assault them at the (proper) Gate: when once ye are in, victory will be yours; But on Allah put your trust if ye have faith. They said: O Musa! while they remain there, never shall we be able to enter, to the end of time. Go thou, and thy Lord, and fight ye two, while we sit here (and watch). He said: O my Lord! I have power only over myself and my brother: so separate us from this rebellious people! Allah said: Therefore will the land be out of their reach for forty years: In distraction will they wander through the land: But sorrow thou not over these rebellious people." (al-Ma’idah 5/20-26)

4- Ibn Kathir said: "This is what is prominent regarding Sabab (the reason) this noble verse was sent down. And strange, rather far off, rather mistaken is the claim of the person that says: He was given Prophethood, but then he threw that away." (Tafsir, 2/65)

The chain that includes Ali Ibn Abi Talhah from Ibn Abbas (radiyallahu anh) is considered weak, as Ali Ibn Abi Talhah never met Ibn Abbas (radiyallahu anh). Ibn Hajar said:

"Ali Ibn Abi Talhah Salim, he was the servant of the children of al-Abbas, he lived in Homs. He narrated from Ibn Abbas as Mursal and he did not meet him." (Taqrib'ut Tah’thib, 4754) He also mentioned him, when mentioning those who narrated from Ibn Abbas (radiyallahu anh), where he said: "And Ali Ibn Abi Talhah as Mursal." (Tah’thib'ut Tah’thib, 474)

Ibn Hajar also said: "And Ibn Mardawayh narrated with a strong chain, from Abdullah Ibn Amr Ibn'ul As that he said about His Statement:


وَاتْلُ عَلَيْهِمْ نَبَأَ الَّذِيَ آتَيْنَاهُ آيَاتِنَا فَانسَلَخَ مِنْهَا

"And recite to them (O Muhammad) the story of him to whom We gave Our verses, but he threw them away.”

He said: It was revealed regarding Umayyah Ibn Abi's Salt." (Fath'ul Bari, 7/189)
Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said:

إِنَّ النَّاسَ دَخَلُوا فِي دِينِ اللهِ أَفْوَاجًا، وَسَيَخْرُجُونَ مِنْهُ أَفْوَاجًا

"Verily, the people have entered into the religion of Allah in crowds and they will also leave it in crowds." (Ahmad, Musnad)

* The Thirteenth Evidence Against The Collaborator *

His (Subhanahu wa Ta'ala) statement:

َلاَ تَرْكَنُواْ إِلَى الَّذِينَ ظَلَمُواْْ فَتَمَسَّكُمُ النَّارُ وَمَا لَكُم مِّن دُونِ اللّهِ مِنْ أَوْلِيَاء ثُمَّ لاَ تُنصَرُونَ

“And do not incline toward those who do Dhulm (wrong), lest the Fire should touch you; and you have no protectors other than Allah, nor would you then be helped.” (Huud 11/113)

So He (subhanahu wa ta'ala) mentioned that inclination toward the wrong-doers from the Kuffar and the Dhalimin necessitates touching the Fire; and He did not differentiate between the one from them who is in Khawf or otherwise; except the Mukrah.

So how about the person who takes inclination towards them as his way of life, or as a good idea;

and assists them with whatever he can from wealth and advice;

and he desires to see an end to Tawhid and Ahl'ut Tawhid (the People of Tawhid),

and (to see) the people of Shirk conquering them?!

Indeed, this is from the most severe Kufr and inclination (towards the Mushrikin).
Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said:

إِنَّ النَّاسَ دَخَلُوا فِي دِينِ اللهِ أَفْوَاجًا، وَسَيَخْرُجُونَ مِنْهُ أَفْوَاجًا

"Verily, the people have entered into the religion of Allah in crowds and they will also leave it in crowds." (Ahmad, Musnad)

* The Fourteenth Evidence Against The Collaborator *

His (Subhanahu wa Ta'ala) statement:

َن كَفَرَ ببِاللّهِ مِن بَعْدِ إيمَانِهِ إِلاَّ مَنْ أُكْرِهَ وَقَلْبُهُ مُطْمَئِنٌّ بِالإِيمَانِ وَلَـكِن مَّن شَرَحَ بِالْكُفْرِ صَدْراً فَعَلَيْهِمْ غَضَبٌ مِّنَ اللّهِ وَلَهُمْ عَذَابٌ عَظِيمٌ ذَلِكَ بِأَنَّهُمُ اسْتَحَبُّواْ الْحَيَاةَ الْدُّنْيَا عَلَى الآخِرَةِ وَأَنَّ اللّهَ لاَ يَهْدِي الْقَوْمَ الْكَافِرِينَ

“Whoever commits Kufr against Allah after his Iman (in Allah), excluding he who is forced thereto while his heart is at rest with Iman; but such who open their breasts to Kufr1 then on them is wrath from Allah, and theirs will be a great torment. That is because they loved and preferred the life of this world over that of the Hereafter. And Allah does not guide the Kafirin.” (an-Nahl 16/106-107)

So He (subhanahu wa ta'ala) has made a judgment that is unchangeable.

Whosoever turns back from his Din to Kufr, then he is a Kafir regardless of whether he had the excuse of Khawf for his life, wealth, family, or not.

Whether he committed Kufr both internally (with his heart) and externally (through actions), or only externally and not internally (i.e., only through actions, without the heart); and whether he committed Kufr through his actions and his speech, or with just one of the two and not the other; and whether or not he committed Kufr because of his desire to attain some worldly benefit from the Mushrikin.

He becomes a Kafir in each and every situation; except for the Mukrah. And he is the ‘Maghsub’ in our language.2

So if a person is forced to do Kufr; and it is said to him: “Commit Kufr! Or else we shall kill you; or we will torture you”; or the Mushrikun take him and beat him (severely); and it is not possible for him to be rid (of this torment) except by agreeing with them.

Then it is permissible for him to agree with them externally (through actions or speech) -with the condition that his heart rests upon Iman- meaning firmly established upon it and believing in it. But as for him agreeing with them with his heart, then he is a Kafir; even if he is a Mukrah.

And what is apparent from the words of Imam Ahmad, is that in the first situation, he would not be a Mukrah; unless the Mushrikun had tortured him. Because when Yahya Ibn Ma’in entered upon him while he was ill, he (Yahya) greeted him with Salam but he (Imam Ahmad) did not return his Salam.

So Yahya began to appeal to him saying:

“The Hadith of Ammar3 (O Ahmad)! And Allah said:
إِلاَّ مَنْ أُكْرِهَ وَقَلْبُهُ مُطْمَئِنٌّ بِالإِيمَانِ “excluding he who is forced thereto while his heart is at rest with Iman.” So Ahmad turned his face to the other side; so Yahya exclaimed: He does not accept an excuse?!

So when Yahya was leaving, Imam Ahmad said:

He uses the Hadith of Ammar (radiyallahu anh) as proof, and the Hadith of Ammar is: “I passed by them (the Mushrikin) while they were insulting you (O Rasulullah); so I forbid them (to say such things), so then they tortured me…’ And you, it is said to you: We want to torture you.4 So Yahya said: I swear by Allah! I have not seen anyone under the surface of the Sky of Allah who understands the Din of Allah better than you.”5

Then He (subhanahu wa ta'ala) informed that those Murtaddin, who opened their hearts to Kufr, even though they are sure of the Truth; and that they said: “We did not do this except because of Khawf”; but still
فَعَلَيْهِمْ غَضَبٌ مِّنَ اللّهِ وَلَهُمْ عَذَابٌ عَظِيمٌ “on them is wrath from Allah, and theirs will be a great torment.”

Then He (subhanahu wa ta'ala) informed that the reason for this Kufr and eternal punishment, is not because they believed in Shirk; nor because of ignorance about Tawhid; nor because of hatred for the Din; nor because of love for Kufr; rather, the reason is merely because of a bit from the bits of the Dunya (worldly life), which he preferred above the Din and the Pleasure of the Lord of the Worlds.6

So He said:


َلِكَ بِأَنَّهُمُ اسْتَحَبُّواْ الْحَيَاةَ الْدُّنْيَا عَلَى الآخِرَةِِ وَأَنَّ اللّهَ لاَ يَهْدِي الْقَوْمَ

“That is because they loved and preferred the life of this world over that of the Hereafter. And Allah does not guide the Kafirin.” (an-Nahl 16/107)

So He (subhanahu wa ta'ala) has made Takfir of them.7 And He informed that He will not guide them, even though they try to excuse themselves with the plea that they (only did it out of) lust for the Dunya.

Then He (subhanahu wa ta'ala) informed that these are Murtaddin, because they preferred the life of the Dunya rather than the Hereafter; they are the ones whose hearts, hearing, and sight Allah has sealed, and that they are the oblivious ones; then He informed (us of their) confirmed reality:


لاَ جَرَمَ أَنَّهُمْ فِي الآخِرَةِ هُمُ الْخَاسِرونَ

“That in the Hereafter, they will be the losers.” (an-Nahl 16/109)



Quote
1- Shaykh’ul Islam Ibn Taymiyyah said regarding this:

“Whoever utters Kufr without being forced to, he has indeed opened his breast to Kufr.” (Majma'ul Fatawa, 7/599) And he (rahimahullah) also said:

“Whoever commits Kufr without being forced to do so, he has indeed opened his breast to Kufr.” (Majma'ul Fatawa, 7/220)

2- Derived from “Ghasaba - Yaghsibu” which implies the meanings of “coerce, compel, force, extort, seize unlawfully, conquer, subdue, rape, etc.” And Maghsub is the one who is “coerced, compelled, forced, subdued, etc.” According to classical linguists: “Someone who is forced to do something he dislikes by means of subjugation and compulsion.” (Lisan'ul Arab, 3/526; al-Misbah'ul Munir, 2/729)

3- Tabari, 14/184; Hakim, al-Mustadrak, 2/357; adh-Dhahabi; Bayhaqi, as-Sunnan'ul Kubra, 8/208; Abu Nu’aym, al-Hilyah, 1/140; Ibn as-Sa’d, at-Tabaqat, 3/249; Abd’ur Razzaq; Nasb'ur Rayah, 4/159; Ibn Abi Hatim; Ibn Mardawayh; Ibn'ul Mundhir; Ibn Asakir; ad-Durr'ul Mandhur, 4/132; al-Matalib'ul Aliyah, 3/347; Abd Ibn Humayd; al-Fakihi; Ibn Sirin; Abu'l Mutawakkil; Qatadah; Ibn Hajar, Fath’ul Bari, 12/312

Ibn Hajar said: “It is agreed that the verse of:
إِلاَّ مَنْ أُكْرِهَ وَقَلْبُهُ مُطْمَئِنٌّ بِالإِيمَانِ “Excluding he who is forced thereto while his heart is at rest with Iman.”, was revealed regarding Ammar (radiyallahu anh).” (al-Isabah, 7/65)

“Ammar (radiyallahu anh) did not feel utterly ruined except on that day when his executioners employed all their devilry in crime and injustice. They burned his skin with fire, laid him on the heated sands of the desert under the burning stones, dunked him in water until he could hardly breathe and until his wounds and gashes were skinned. On that day, when he fell unconscious under the effect of that horror, they said to him: Say something good about our gods. They kept saying things, which he repeated without being conscious of what he was saying. When he became slightly conscious after he had fainted due to their torture, he remembered what he had said and was angry about it. This slip became so concrete to him that he saw it as an unforgivable sin, which could not be atoned for. In a few moments his feeling of guilt made him suffer so much that the torture of the polytheists seemed to him a blessing and a balm. And then Allah later revealed these verses regarding the pardoning of the Mukrah.” (Rijal Hawl'ur Rasul, 166-167)

4- Meaning that Ammar (radiyallahu anh) was actually tortured, and Imam Ahmad was saying that they themselves were not in that condition yet, but rather were merely being threatened. So mere threats are not a valid Ikrah which would permit Kufr.

5- Ibn Abi Ya’la, at-Tabaqat, 1/404; Ibn’ul Jawzi, Manaqib'ul Imam Ahmad, 474

6- Just another refutation against the Murji’ah who claim that “loving Islam” and “hating Kufr” are barriers from Takfir of the collaborators. And these evil deviants claim that as long as the reason for Muthaharah is solely for a “worldly reason”, there can be no Takfir.

7- Meaning that Allah has declared such people to be Kuffar; as is in the part of the verse:
وَأَنَّ اللّهَ لاَ يَهْدِي الْقَوْمَ الْكَافِرِينَ “And Allah does not guide the Kafirin.” (an-Nahl 16/107)
Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said:

إِنَّ النَّاسَ دَخَلُوا فِي دِينِ اللهِ أَفْوَاجًا، وَسَيَخْرُجُونَ مِنْهُ أَفْوَاجًا

"Verily, the people have entered into the religion of Allah in crowds and they will also leave it in crowds." (Ahmad, Musnad)

* The Fifteenth Evidence Against The Collaborator *

His (Subhanahu wa Ta'ala) statement:

ِنَّهُمْ إِن يَظْهَرُوا عَلَيْكُمْ يَرْجُمُوكُمْْ أَوْ يُعِيدُوكُمْ فِي مِلَّتِهِمْ وَلَن تُفْلِحُوا إِذاً أَبَداً

“Indeed, if they overcome you; they will stone you (to death), or turn you back to their religion; and in that case, you will never be successful.” (al-Kahf 18/20)

So He (subhanahu wa ta'ala) mentioned about the People of the Cave, that they mentioned about the Mushrikin, saying:

“If they subdue you and overpower you, then they will do either of two things:

i- They will stone you. This means that they will kill you in the worst way, execution by stoning,

ii- Or they will return you to their path and their Din; and then in that case, you will never be successful.

This means: And if you harmonize with them regarding their Din after they subdue you and overpower you, then in that case, you will never be successful (enter Jannah).”

So this is the condition of the one who agrees with them after they overpowered him.

So how about the one who harmonizes with them and sends them delegates from far away; and answers them in whatever they seek from him; without any subjugation or coercion?!? And on top of this, they
وَيَحْسَبُونَ أَنَّهُم مُّهْتَدُونَ “think that they are guided!” (al-A'raf 7/30)
Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said:

إِنَّ النَّاسَ دَخَلُوا فِي دِينِ اللهِ أَفْوَاجًا، وَسَيَخْرُجُونَ مِنْهُ أَفْوَاجًا

"Verily, the people have entered into the religion of Allah in crowds and they will also leave it in crowds." (Ahmad, Musnad)

* The Sixteenth Evidence Against The Collaborator *

His (Subhanahu wa Ta'ala) statement:

َمِنَ النَّاسِِ مَن يَعْبُدُ اللَّهَ عَلَى حَرْفٍ فَإِنْ أَصَابَهُ خَيْرٌ اطْمَأَنَّ بِهِ وَإِنْ أَصَابَتْهُ فِتْنَةٌ انقَلَبَ عَلَى وَجْهِهِ خَسِرَ الدُّنْيَا وَالْآخِرَةَ ذَلِكَ هُوَ الْخُسْرَانُ الْمُبِينُ

“And among mankind is he who worships Allah as if he were upon an edge (of doubt): if good befalls him, he is content therewith; but if a trial befalls him, he turns back on his face. He loses both this world and the Hereafter. That is the evident loss.” (al-Hajj 22/11)

So He (subhanahu wa ta'ala) informs:

“And among mankind is he who worships Allah as if he were upon an edge” meaning wavering upon an edge;

“if good befalls him” like victory, honour, health, spaciousness, safety, relief, and the likes of that; “he is content there with” in other words: is steadfast, and he says: ‘This is a good religion…we do not see anything in it except goodness’;

“but if a trial befalls him” such as fear, illness, poverty, and the likes of that; “he turns back on his face” in other words: apostatizes from his Din, and returns back to the people of Shirk.

This verse totally matches the condition of the ones who turned back from their Din in this period of Fitnah.1

Because indeed, before this Fitnah, they worshiped Allah on an edge, in other words, wavering on an edge. They were not from those who worship Allah with certainty and firmness. So when this Fitnah befell them,

they turned back from their Din and displayed Muwafaqah to the Mushrikin;

and they gave them obedience;

and they left the group of the Muslims to go to the group of the Mushrikin.

So they are with them in the Hereafter; just as they are along with them in this world.

So they lost this world and the Hereafter and “that is the evident loss.”

This (is how they are), even though many of them are in comfort, and the enemy has not troubled them. Rather, their perception about Allah is evil. So they assume that:

“He will give victory to the falsehood and its people, over the Truth and its people.”

So they will be annihilated because of their sinister thoughts about Allah, just as He (subhanahu wa ta'ala) said regarding those who assume about Him with evil assumptions:


وَذَلِكُمْ ظَنُّكُمُ الَّذِي ظَنَنتُم بِرَبِّكُمْ أَرْدَاكُمْ فَأَصْبَحْتُم مِّنْ الْخَاسِرِينَ

“And that thought of yours which you thought about your Lord, has brought you to destruction; so you have become of those utterly lost!” (Fussilat 41/23)2

So, O you upon whom Allah has blessed with steadfastness upon Islam;

beware lest any type of doubt enters your heart, or any beatification of the affair of those Murtaddin;

nor think that showing compliance and obedience to the Mushrikin is a good idea, just for the sake of some people, wealth, or things which are revered.

Because indeed, this Shubhah (doubt, argument, suspicion, vagueness) is the one which has misguided many of the early ones and also the ones who came after them; into committing Shirk with Allah; but still Allah did not excuse them with that.

Rather, many of them know the Truth and they believe it in their hearts, yet they embrace Shirk because of "the Eight (Unacceptable) Excuses" which have been mentioned by Allah in His Book. And Allah (subhanahu wa ta'ala) will not excuse anyone due to any of these excuses, whether all of them are presented or just some… So He declared:


ُلْ إِنن كَانَ آبَاؤُكُمْ وَأَبْنَآؤُكُمْ وَإِخْوَانُكُمْ وَأَزْوَاجُكُمْ وَعَشِيرَتُكُمْ وَأَمْوَالٌ اقْتَرَفْتُمُوهَا وَتِجَارَةٌ تَخْشَوْنَ كَسَادَهَا وَمَسَاكِنُ تَرْضَوْنَهَا أَحَبَّ إِلَيْكُم مِّنَ اللّهِ وَرَسُولِهِ وَجِهَادٍ فِي سَبِيلِهِ فَتَرَبَّصُواْ حَتَّى يَأْتِيَ اللّهُ بِأَمْرِهِ وَاللّهُ لاَ يَهْدِي الْقَوْمَ الْفَاسِقِينَ

“Say: If

1- your fathers,

2- your sons,

3- your brothers,

4- your wives,

5- your kindred,

6- the wealth that you have gained,

7- the commerce in which you fear a decline,

8- and the dwellings (home, village, city, or nation) in which you delight

-(If these) are dearer to you than Allah and His Messenger, and Jihaad in His Cause- Then wait until Allah brings His Decision (torment). And Allah does not guide the people who are Fasiqin.” (at-Tawbah 9/24)



Quote
1- Literally “dissension, tribulation, strife, trial, etc.” And as the Imam described “fear, illness, poverty, etc”. But in its Shar’i meaning it can also mean Shirk, Kufr, or Bid’ah. (Tafsir at-Tabari, 2/194-195) But the word Fitnah here is used in its literal meaning. He is talking about the strife that occurred when the Ottoman Empire occupied the lands of Tawhid, the Arabian Peninsula. Wallahu A'lam (and Allah knows)!..

2- And similar is in the verses regarding the Battle of al-Ahzab:


ِذْ جَاؤُوكُم مِّن فَوْقِكُمْ وَمِنْ أَسْفَلََ مِنكُمْ وَإِذْ زَاغَتْ الْأَبْصَارُ وَبَلَغَتِ الْقُلُوبُ الْحَنَاجِرَ وَتَظُنُّونَ بِاللَّهِ الظُّنُونَا هُنَالِكَ ابْتُلِيَ الْمُؤْمِنُونَ وَزُلْزِلُوا زِلْزَالاً شَدِيداً وَإِذْ يَقُولُ الْمُنَافِقُونَ وَالَّذِينَ فِي قُلُوبِهِم مَّرَضٌ مَّا وَعَدَنَا اللَّهُ وَرَسُولُهُ إِلَّا غُرُوراً

“When they (the Mushrikun) came upon you from above you and from below you, and when the eyes grew wild and the hearts reached to the throats, and you were harboring doubts about Allah. There, the Mu’minin were tried and shaken with a mighty shaking. And when the hypocrites and those in whose hearts is a disease (of doubts) said: Allah and His Messenger promised us nothing but delusion!” (al-Ahzab 33/10-12)
Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said:

إِنَّ النَّاسَ دَخَلُوا فِي دِينِ اللهِ أَفْوَاجًا، وَسَيَخْرُجُونَ مِنْهُ أَفْوَاجًا

"Verily, the people have entered into the religion of Allah in crowds and they will also leave it in crowds." (Ahmad, Musnad)

* The Seventeenth Evidence Against The Collaborator *

His (Subhanahu wa Ta'ala) statement:

ِنَّ الَّذِينَ ارْتَدُّوا عَلَى أَدْبَارِهِمم مِّن بَعْدِ مَا تَبَيَّنَ لَهُمُ الْهُدَى الشَّيْطَانُ سَوَّلَ لَهُمْ وَأَمْلَى لَهُمْ ذَلِكَ بِأَنَّهُمْ قَالُوا لِلَّذِينَ كَرِهُوا مَا نَزَّلَ اللَّهُ سَنُطِيعُكُمْ فِي بَعْضِ الْأَمْرِ وَاللَّهُ يَعْلَمُ إِسْرَارَهُمْ فَكَيْفَ إِذَا تَوَفَّتْهُمْ الْمَلَائِكَةُ يَضْرِبُونَ وُجُوهَهُمْ وَأَدْبَارَهُمْ ذَلِكَ بِأَنَّهُمُ اتَّبَعُوا مَا أَسْخَطَ اللَّهَ وَكَرِهُوا رِضْوَانَهُ فَأَحْبَطَ أَعْمَالَهُمْ

“Verily, those who have turned back (have apostatized as Kuffar) after the guidance has been manifested to them, Shaytan has beautified for them (their false hopes), and (Allah) prolonged their term (age).1 That is because they said to those who hate what Allah has sent down: We will obey you in part of the matter. But Allah knows their secrets. Then how (will it be) when the Angels will take their souls at death, smiting their faces and their backs? That is because they followed that which angered Allah, and hated that which pleased Him. So, He made their deeds fruitless.” (Muhammad 47/25-28)

So He (Subhanahu wa Ta'ala) mentioned regarding those who turn back on their heels, that after the Truth had been clear to them; they apostatized upon knowledge. And their knowledge of the Truth along with Riddah did not benefit them; and Shaytan deceived them with his seduction and beautification of their actions of Riddah.

Similar is the case with the Murtaddin in this Fitnah (tribulation). Shaytan has seduced them and tricked them with the illusion that Khawf is an excuse for committing Riddah, and that with their knowledge of the Truth, love of it, and testimony to it -their action (Muthaharah, cooperation with the Mushrikin against the Muslims) will not harm them.

And they have forgotten that a great many of the Mushrikin know of the Truth, love it, and testify to it- but they abandon the following of and acting upon it out of love for the Dunya, and because of Khawf for the sake of lives, wealth, food, or positions of leadership.”2

Then He (Subhanahu wa Ta'ala) said: “This is because they said to those who hate what Allah has sent down: We will obey you in part of the matter.”

So He (Subhanahu wa Ta'ala) informed that the reason for that which came upon them from apostasy, and the beautification from Shaytan, and the respite given to them; was their saying to those who hated what Allah has revealed: “We will obey you in part of the matter.”

So if whoever promised limited obedience to the Mushrikin -those who hate what Allah has revealed- becomes a Kafir, even if he doesn’t fulfill that which he promised them;

Then what about the one who harmonizes with the Mushrikin -those who hate what Allah has revealed- regarding the commandment to direct Ibadaah to Him Alone without any partners,

and forsaking the Ibadaah of other than Him, from amongst the rivals, Tawaghit, and dead;

and then says that they are upon guidance, and the Muwahhidun are wrong in their fighting (against the Tawaghit worshipers);

and says that surrendering to them and entering into their false Din is the correct path?!

Indeed, such people are more worthy of Riddah than those who promised the Mushrikin with limited obedience. Then He (Subhanahu wa Ta'ala) notifies us of their atrocious condition during their death, as He says: “That is” referring to the horrid affair during their demise; “because they followed that which angered Allah, and hated that which pleased Him. So, He made their deeds fruitless.”

No Muslim will doubt that;

following the Mushrikin and entering into their group;

and bearing witness that they are upon the Truth;

cooperating with them to eliminate Tawhid and its people;

and assisting the Qibab, prostitution, homosexuality -is from ‘following that which angers Allah, and hatred of His Pleasure’- even if they claim that it is only due to Khawf.

Because indeed, Allah did not excuse the people of Riddah because of Khawf. Rather, He has prohibited having Khawf from them.3 So where is this compared to those who say:

nothing (wrong) has come from us;

we are (still) upon our Din?”



Quote
1- This verse is clarified by other verses from the Qur’an:

َلَوْلا إِذْ جَاءهُمْ بَأْسُنَا تَضَرَّعُواْ وَلَـكِن قَسَتْ  قُلُوبُهُمْ وَزَيَّنَ لَهُمُ الشَّيْطَانُ مَا كَانُواْ يَعْمَلُون فَلَمَّا نَسُواْ مَا ذُكِّرُواْ بِهِ فَتَحْنَا عَلَيْهِمْ أَبْوَابَ كُلِّ شَيْءٍ حَتَّى إِذَا فَرِحُواْ بِمَا أُوتُواْ أَخَذْنَاهُم بَغْتَةً فَإِذَا هُم مُّبْلِسُونَ

“When Our Torment reached them, why did they not humble themselves (believe with humility)? But their hearts became hardened, and Shaytan made fair-seeming to them that which they used to do. So, when they forgot that which they had been reminded of (the warning), We opened for them the gates of every (pleasant) thing; until in the midst of their enjoyment in that which they were given, all of a sudden, We took them (in punishment), and lo! They were plunged into destruction, with regrets and sorrows.” (al-An’am 6/43-44);

َللاَ تَحْسَبَنَّ اللّهَ غَافِلاً عَمَّا يَعْمَلُ الظَّالِمُونَ إِنَّمَا يُؤَخِّرُهُمْ لِيَوْمٍ تَشْخَصُ فِيهِ الأَبْصَارُ

“Do not consider that Allah is unaware of that which the Dhalimun do; rather He gives them respite up to a day when the eyes will stare in horror.” (Ibrahim 14/42);

فَذَرْنِي وَمَن يُكَذِّبُ بِهَذَا الْحَدِيثِ سَنَسْتَدْرِجُهُم مِّنْ حَيْثُ لَا يَعْلَمُونَ وَأُمْلِي لَهُمْ إِنَّ كَيْدِي مَتِينٌ

“We shall punish them gradually from directions they perceive not. And I will grant them a respite; Verily, My Plan is strong.” (al-Qalam 68/44-45)

2- As Allah says:


َشِّرِ الْمُنَافِقِينَ بِأَنَّ لَهُمْ عَذَاباً أَلِيماًً الَّذِينَ يَتَّخِذُونَ الْكَافِرِينَ أَوْلِيَاء مِن دُونِ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ أَيَبْتَغُونَ عِندَهُمُ الْعِزَّةَ فَإِنَّ العِزَّةَ لِلّهِ جَمِيعاً

“Give to the hypocrites the tidings that there is for them a painful torment. Those who take the Kafirin as Awliya instead of the Mu’minin. Do they seek honor, power, and glory with them? Verily, only to Allah belongs all honor, power, and glory.” (an-Nisa 4/138-139);

وَلِلَّهِ الْعِزَّةُ وَلِرَسُولِهِ وَلِلْمُؤْمِنِينَ وَلَكِنَّ الْمُنَافِقِينَ لَا يَعْلَمُونَ

“But honor, power, and glory belong to Allah, to His Messenger and to the Mu’minin. But the hypocrites know not.” (al-Munafiqun 63/8)

3- As has preceded once before:


ِنَّمَا ذَلِكُمُ الشَّيْطَانُُ يُخَوِّفُ أَوْلِيَاءهُ فَلاَ تَخَافُوهُمْ وَخَافُونِ إِن كُنتُم مُّؤْمِنِينَ

“It is only Shaytan that suggests to you the Khawf of his Awliya (i.e., Mushrikun); so fear them not, but fear Me, if you are Mu’minin.” (Al-i Imran 3/175)
Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said:

إِنَّ النَّاسَ دَخَلُوا فِي دِينِ اللهِ أَفْوَاجًا، وَسَيَخْرُجُونَ مِنْهُ أَفْوَاجًا

"Verily, the people have entered into the religion of Allah in crowds and they will also leave it in crowds." (Ahmad, Musnad)

* The Eighteenth Evidence Against The Collaborator *

His (Subhanahu wa Ta'ala) statement:

َلَمْ تَر إِلَىى الَّذِينَ نَافَقُوا يَقُولُونَ لِإِخْوَانِهِمُ الَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا مِنْ أَهْلِ الْكِتَابِ لَئِنْ أُخْرِجْتُمْ لَنَخْرُجَنَّ مَعَكُمْ وَلَا نُطِيعُ فِيكُمْ أَحَداً أَبَداً وَإِن قُوتِلْتُمْ لَنَنصُرَنَّكُمْ وَاللَّهُ يَشْهَدُ إِنَّهُمْ لَكَاذِبُونَ لَئِنْ أُخْرِجُوا لَا يَخْرُجُونَ مَعَهُمْ وَلَئِن قُوتِلُوا لَا يَنصُرُونَهُمْ وَلَئِن نَّصَرُوهُمْ لَيُوَلُّنَّ الْأَدْبَارَ ثُمَّ لَا يُنصَرُونَ

“Have you (O Muhammad) not observed the hypocrites who say to their brothers (Ikhwan), those who have disbelieved, among the people of the Scripture: (By Allah) If you are expelled, we too indeed will go out with you, and we shall never obey anyone against you; and if you are attacked (fought), we shall indeed help you. But Allah is Witness that they verily are liars.” (al-Hashr 59/11-12)

So He (Subhanahu wa Ta'ala) has formed the tie of brotherhood between the Munafiqin and the Kuffar. And He informed that;

the Munafiqun secretly tell them: “(By Allah) If you are expelled, we too indeed will go out with you” meaning;

that if Muhammad (sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam) defeats you and expels you from your country, we too will leave along with you; “and we shall never obey anyone against you” meaning,

we will not listen to the word of anyone against you, nor shall we give obedience to anyone against you; “and if you are attacked, we shall indeed help you” meaning, and if Muhammad (sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam) fights against you, we will certainly support you and be with you.

Then He (Subhanahu wa Ta'ala) testifies that they are liars in this saying.

So if secretly promising the Mushrikin to join them, assist them and to go in exile along with them if they are exiled, is Kufr and Nifaq, even if it is a lie;

Then what about those who display this to them truthfully;

and go to them,

enter into their obedience,

and call towards it,

and support them,

submit to them,

become a part of their group,

and assist them with wealth and intelligence?!

This along with the fact that the Munafiqin did not do this except out of fear of tragedies, as He (Subhanahu wa Ta'ala) said:


فَتَرَى الَّذِينَ فِي قُلُوبِهِم مَّرَضٌ يُسَارِعُونَ فِيهِمْ يَقُولُونَ نَخْشَى أَن تُصِيبَنَا دَآئِرَةٌ

“So you see those in whose hearts there is a disease (of hypocrisy), they hurry to their friendship, saying: We fear lest some misfortune of a disaster may befall us.” (al-Ma’idah 5/52)

The case of many of the Murtaddin in this time of Fitnah are just like that. As the excuse of many of them is this exact excuse which Allah mentioned about: “Those in whose hearts there is a disease” and He did not accept their excuse. Allah (Subhanahu wa Ta'ala) said:


َعَسَى  اللّهُ أَن يَأْتِيَ بِالْفَتْحِ أَوْ أَمْرٍ مِّنْ عِندِهِ فَيُصْبِحُواْ عَلَى مَا أَسَرُّواْ فِي أَنْفُسِهِمْ نَادِمِينَ وَيَقُولُ الَّذِينَ آمَنُواْ أَهَـؤُلاء الَّذِينَ أَقْسَمُواْ بِاللّهِ جَهْدَ أَيْمَانِهِمْ إِنَّهُمْ لَمَعَكُمْ حَبِطَتْ أَعْمَالُهُمْ فَأَصْبَحُواْ خَاسِرِينَ

“Perhaps Allah may bring a victory or a decision according to His Will. Then they would become regretful for what they have been keeping as a secret in themselves. And those who have Iman will say: Are these the men (hypocrites) who swore their strongest oaths by Allah that they were with you (O Muslims)? All that they did has been in futility, so they have become losers.” (al-Ma’idah 5/52-53)

Then He (Subhanahu wa Ta'ala) said:


َا أَيُّهَاا الَّذِينَ آمَنُواْ مَن يَرْتَدَّ مِنكُمْ عَن دِينِهِ فَسَوْفَ يَأْتِي اللّهُ بِقَوْمٍ يُحِبُّهُمْ وَيُحِبُّونَهُ أَذِلَّةٍ عَلَى الْمُؤْمِنِينَ أَعِزَّةٍ عَلَى الْكَافِرِينَ

“O you who believe! Whoever from among you apostatizes from his Din (Islam), Allah will bring a people whom He will love and they will love Him; humble towards the Mu’minin, stern towards the Kafirin…” (al-Ma’idah 5/54)

So He (Subhanahu wa Ta'ala) informed that if Murtaddun exist, then definitely there will also exist Mujahidin, Lovers (of Allah), and Beloved (by Allah).

And He described them;

as being humble and modest towards the Mu’minun;

and tough, harsh, and severe against the Kafirin.1

As opposed to those whose modesty, humbleness, and gentleness2 is directed at the worshipers of the Qibab, the people of prostitution, and homosexuals; and whose power and harshness3 is directed at the People of Tawhid and Ikhlas.4

And this is sufficient as evidence for establishing the Kufr of the one who harmonizes with them.

And if he claims that he is a Kha’yf, then Allah (Azza wa Jall) has already said: “and never fearing the blame of the blamers” and this is contrary to those who forsake truthfulness and Jihaad because of Khawf from the Mushrikin.

Then He (Subhanahu wa Ta'ala) said: “waging Jihaad in the Path of Allah” meaning, for the sake of His Tawhid, enduring patiently upon that, seeking the Face of their Lord, so that His Word is the Highest.

“And never fearing the blame of the blamers” meaning, they are not bothered by those who blame them and harm them for their Din; rather, they continue upon their Din as Mujahidin in its path; not looking to the blame of any person from the creation, nor to his anger, nor his pleasure; their only ambition and objective which they ardently seek is the Pleasure of their Sayyid (Master), their Ma’bud, and fleeing from His Anger.

And this is the opposite of those whose ambition and desire is to satisfy the Qibab worshipers, and the people of prostitution, and homosexuality; and having hopes in them, and fleeing from whatever angers them! And this is the pinnacle of misguidance and treachery.

Then He (Subhanahu wa Ta'ala) said: “That is the Grace of Allah which He bestows on whom He wills. And Allah is All-Sufficient for His creatures’ needs, All-Knower.” So He (Subhanahu wa Ta'ala) informed that these great virtues and praiseworthy qualities which are possessed by the the People of Iman and steadfastness upon their Din during times of Riddah and Fitnah -they are not able to fulfill this from their own strength and will- but rather it is only the Favor of Allah which He gives to whomever He Wills; as He said:


يَخْتَصُّ بِرَحْمَتِهِ مَن يَشَاءُ وَاللّهُ ذُو الْفَضْلِ الْعَظِيمِ

“He selects for His Mercy whom He wills- and Allah is the Owner of the Great Bounty.” (Al-i Imran 3/74)

Then He (Subhanahu wa Ta'ala) said:


ِنَّمَا وَلِيُّكُمُ  اللّهُ وَرَسُولُهُ وَالَّذِينَ آمَنُواْ الَّذِينَ يُقِيمُونَ الصَّلاَةَ وَيُؤْتُونَ الزَّكَاةَ وَهُمْ رَاكِعُونَ

“Verily, your Wali (friend, guardian, supporter, helper, protector, etc.,) is none other than Allah, His Messenger, and those who Believe; those who perform Salaat, and give Zakaat, and they are Raki’un (those who bow down and submit themselves with obedience to Allah in prayer).” (al-Ma’idah 5/55)

So He (Subhanahu wa Ta'ala) commanded, in the form of a notification, to have allegiance with:

1- Allah

2- His Messenger

3- And the Mu’minin.

And within it there is a prohibition against Muwalat to the enemies of Allah, His Messenger, and the Mu’minin.

And it is not vague as to which of the two parties are closer to Allah, His Messenger, establishing the Salaat and paying the Zakaat:

Is it the people of the idols, Qibab, prostitution, homosexuality, alcohol, and evil things;

or the People of Sincerity, and establishment of the Salaat, and payment of the Zakaat?

So the ones who ally themselves to the opposite of them (i.e., the Believers), they put allegiance in other than the place it belongs in. They exchange the allegiance with Allah, His Messenger and the Believers -those who establish the Salaat and pay the Zakaat- for the allegiance of the people Shirk, idols, and Qibab.

Then He (Subhanahu wa Ta'ala) informed that Victory is for His Party and those who ally themselves with them, as He said:


َمَن يَتَوَلَّ  اللّهَ وَرَسُولَهُ وَالَّذِينَ آمَنُواْ فَإِنَّ حِزْبَ اللّهِ هُمُ الْغَالِبُونَ

“And whosoever takes Allah, His Messenger, and those who Believe as Awliya; then the Party of Allah will be the victorious.” (al-Ma’idah 5/56)



Quote
1- As also appears in the verse:

مُّحَمَّدٌ رَّسُولُ اللَّهِ وَالَّذِينَ مَعَهُ أَشِدَّاء عَلَى الْكُفَّارِ رُحَمَاء بَيْنَهُمْ

“Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah. And those who are with him are severe against the Kuffar, yet merciful among themselves.” (al-Fath 48/29)

2- Notice how the Imam doesn’t say “love” or anything of Batin (the internal) characteristics. Rather, he mentions characteristics which are shown Dhahir (externally). This must be pondered upon carefully since many mistaken people claim that the internal feelings must be considered.

Such people also claim that if someone doesn’t love Kufr, he doesn’t become a Kafir even if he supports the Kuffar against the People of Tawhid. Also think deeply upon what the Imam mentioned under the Fourteenth Evidence: “Then He (Subhanahu wa Ta'ala) informed that the reason for this Kufr and eternal punishment; is not because they believed in Shirk; nor because of ignorance about Tawhid; nor because of hatred for the Din; nor because of love for Kufr…”

3- Again, he mentions external qualities. He doesn’t mention “hatred” or such internal characteristics. “And yet, there exists another group who says: No matter what they do or say, they shouldn’t be ruled upon as Kuffar or Mushrikin, until what is in their hearts is known.”

4- And this describes the exact state of today all over the world. So note carefully what the Shaykh says afterwards: “And this is sufficient as evidence for establishing the Kufr of the one who harmonizes with them.”
Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said:

إِنَّ النَّاسَ دَخَلُوا فِي دِينِ اللهِ أَفْوَاجًا، وَسَيَخْرُجُونَ مِنْهُ أَفْوَاجًا

"Verily, the people have entered into the religion of Allah in crowds and they will also leave it in crowds." (Ahmad, Musnad)

* The Nineteenth Evidence Against The Collaborator *

The testimony of Allah (subhanahu wa ta'ala):

لَا تَجِدُ قَوْماً يُؤْمِنُونَ بِاللَّهِ وَالْيَوْمِ الْآخِرِ يُوَادُّونَ مَنْ حَادَّ اللَّهَ وَرَسُولَهُ وَلَوْ كَانُوا آبَاءهُمْ أَوْ أَبْنَاءهُمْ أَوْ إِخْوَانَهُمْ أَوْ عَشِيرَتَهُمْ أُوْلَئِكَ

“You will not find any people who believe in Allah and the Last Day, making friendship with those who oppose Allah and His Messenger; even if they are their fathers, their sons, their brothers, or their kindred.” (al-Mujadilah 58/22)

So He (subhanahu wa ta'ala) has informed that you will not be able to find anyone who has Iman in Allah and the Last Day, befriending those who oppose Allah and His Messenger; no matter how close their blood-relations may be. And that this (i.e., Muthaharah) is a nullification of Iman and contradictory to it.

And that this (i.e., Muthaharah) and Iman cannot be joined together, except in the same manner in which water and fire are joined together.

And indeed He (subhanahu wa ta'ala) has said in another place:


يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُواْ لاَ تَتَّخِذُواْ آبَاءكُمْ وَإِخْوَانَكُمْ أَوْلِيَاء إَنِ اسْتَحَبُّواْ الْكُفْرَ عَلَى الإِيمَانِ وَمَن يَتَوَلَّهُم مِّنكُمْ فَأُوْلَـئِكَ هُمُ الظَّالِمُونَ

“O you who believe! Do not take your fathers and brothers as Awliya if they prefer Kufr above Iman. And whoever of you takes them as Awliya, then he is one of the Dhalimun.” (at-Tawbah 9/23)

So in these two verses, there is an explicitly clear warning:

that there is no excuse for anyone to harmonize with Kufr, even if it be due to fear for the sake of wealth, fathers, sons, spouses,1 kindred, or other such things which people seek to use as an excuse.

And if He did not permit anyone to show these specific people any loyalty, nor permit taking them as Awliya; whether it be due to fearing a harm from them, or for preferring to please them.

Then what about the ones who take the far-away and distant Kuffar as Awliya and companions.

And show towards them harmony with their Din, because of fearing some of these mentioned affairs, and because of loving them??

And from that which is strange is that they seek Istihsan (to approve) this (friendship), and they consider it be Halaal. (Istihlaal) so along with Riddah, they also declare a Haraam thing to be Halaal!

1- Also in the verse:

يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا إِنَّ مِنْ أَزْوَاجِكُمْ وَأَوْلَادِكُمْ عَدُوّاً لَّكُمْ فَاحْذَرُوهُمْ

“O you who believe! Verily, among your wives and your children, there are enemies against you, therefore beware of them!” (at-Taghabun 64/14)
Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said:

إِنَّ النَّاسَ دَخَلُوا فِي دِينِ اللهِ أَفْوَاجًا، وَسَيَخْرُجُونَ مِنْهُ أَفْوَاجًا

"Verily, the people have entered into the religion of Allah in crowds and they will also leave it in crowds." (Ahmad, Musnad)

* The Twentieth Evidence Against The Collaborator *

The commandment of Allah (subhanahu wa ta'ala):


يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا لَا تَتَّخِذُوا عَدُوِّي وَعَدُوَّكُمْ أَوْلِيَاء تُلْقُونَ إِلَيْهِم بِالْمَوَدَّةِ … وَمَن يَفْعَلْهُ مِنكُمْ فَقَدْ ضَلَّ سَوَاء السَّبِيلِ

“O you who believe! Do not take My enemies and your enemies as Awliya, showing affection towards them...1 And whosoever of you (Muslims) does that, then he has gone (far) astray from the Straight Path.” (al-Mumtahinah 60/1)

So He (subhanahu wa ta'ala) has informed that whosoever takes the enemies of Allah as Awliya- even if they are family members;


وَمَن يَفْعَلْهُ مِنكُمْ فَقَدْ ضَلَّ سَوَاء السَّبِيلِ “then he has gone (far) astray from the Straight Path.” meaning that they have slipped off as-Sirat al-Mustaqim (the Straight Way), and abandoned it to go to misguidance.

So where is this -compared to someone who claims that he is still on the Straight Way and actually hasn’t deserted it?!

Indeed this is rejection of Allah Himself- and whoever rejects Allah, is a Kafir.

And (it is) a declaration of something which Allah has declared as Haraam, to be Halaal: of allegiance to the Kuffar. And whoever declares something Haraam to be Halaal, then he is a Kafir.

And then He (subhanahu wa ta'ala) mentions the Shubhah (argument) of those who use the excuse of ‘relatives and children’, as He said:


لَن تَنفَعَكُمْ أَرْحَامُكُمْ وَلَا أَوْلَادُكُمْ يَوْمَ الْقِيَامَةِ يَفْصِلُ بَيْنَكُمْ وَاللَّهُ بِمَا تَعْمَلُونَ بَصِيرٌ

“Neither your relatives nor your children will benefit you (against Allah) on the Day of Resurrection. He will judge between you. And Allah is the All-Seer of what you do.” (al-Mumtahinah 60/3)

So He (subhanahu wa ta'ala) did not accept Khawf for the (safety of) ‘relatives and children’, nor that separating from them is hardship, as excuses.

On the contrary, He informed that they will not be of any benefit on the Day of Resurrection, nor be of any use against the eternal Punishment of Allah to the minutest extent; as He (subhanahu wa ta'ala) said in another verse:


فَإِذَا نُفِخَ فِي الصُّورِ فَلَا أَنسَابَ بَيْنَهُمْ يَوْمَئِذٍ وَلَا يَتَسَاءلُونَ

“Then, when the trumpet is blown, there will be no kinship among them that Day, nor will they ask of one another.” (al-Mu’minun 23/101)

1- The Imam did not mention the middle part of the verse. The entire verse is:

يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا لَا تَتَّخِذُوا عَدُوِّي وَعَدُوَّكُمْ أَوْلِيَاء تُلْقُونَ إِلَيْهِم بِالْمَوَدَّةِ وَقَدْ كَفَرُوا بِمَا جَاءكُم مِّنَ الْحَقِّ يُخْرِجُونَ الرَّسُولَ وَإِيَّاكُمْ أَن تُؤْمِنُوا بِاللَّهِ رَبِّكُمْ إِن كُنتُمْ خَرَجْتُمْ جِهَاداً فِي سَبِيلِي وَابْتِغَاء مَرْضَاتِي تُسِرُّونَ إِلَيْهِم بِالْمَوَدَّةِ وَأَنَا أَعْلَمُ بِمَا أَخْفَيْتُمْ وَمَا أَعْلَنتُمْ وَمَن يَفْعَلْهُ مِنكُمْ فَقَدْ ضَلَّ سَوَاء السَّبِيلِ

“O you who believe! Do not take My enemies and your enemies as Awliya, showing affection towards them, while they have disbelieved in what has come to you of the Truth, and have driven out the Messenger and yourselves (from your homeland) because you believe in Allah your Lord! If you have come forth to do Jihaad in My Cause and to seek My Good Pleasure (then do not take these Kuffar and Mushrikun as your friends). You show friendship to them in secret, while I am All-Aware of what you conceal and what you reveal. And whosoever of you (Muslims) does that, then he has gone (far) astray from the Straight Path.” (al-Mumtahinah 60/1)
Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said:

إِنَّ النَّاسَ دَخَلُوا فِي دِينِ اللهِ أَفْوَاجًا، وَسَيَخْرُجُونَ مِنْهُ أَفْوَاجًا

"Verily, the people have entered into the religion of Allah in crowds and they will also leave it in crowds." (Ahmad, Musnad)

* The Twenty-first Evidence Against The Collaborator *

From the Sunnah, that which was narrated by Abu Dawud and others, from Samurah Ibn Jundub (radiyallahu anh) from Rasulullah (sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam) that he said:


مَنْ جَامَعَ الْمُشْرِكَ وَسَكَنَ مَعَهُ فَإِنَّهُ مِثْلُهُ

"Whoever joins the Mushrik and lives with him; then he is indeed just like him."1

So he (sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam), in this Hadith made (i.e., declared) it that: "Whosoever joins the Mushrik" meaning whosoever unites with the Mushrikin, mixes with them, and lives with them; then he is just like them.

So how about the one who shows harmony with them regarding their Din, gives them asylum, and assists them!?2

Then if they say: "(Our excuse is that) we were afraid (in Khawf i.e., fear)."

It shall be replied to them: "You have lied."

And also, Khawf is not an excuse. As He (subhanahu wa ta'ala) said:


وَمِنَ النَّاسِ مَن يَقُولُ آمَنَّا بِاللَّهِ فَإِذَا أُوذِيَ فِي اللَّهِ جَعَلَ فِتْنَةَ النَّاسِ كَعَذَابِ اللَّهِ

"Of mankind are some who say: We believe in Allah. But if they are made to suffer for (the sake of) Allah, they consider the Fitnah (trial) of mankind as the Punishment of Allah." (al-Ankabut 29/10)3

So He (Blessed and Most High is He) did not excuse the one who turns back from the Din due to harm being inflicted upon him, nor because of Khawf.

So what then for he who has not been inflicted by harm nor Khawf; but rather goes to the Baatil (evil) because of love for it and fearing calamities.

1- Abu Dawud, Sunnan, #2787; Tirmidhi, Jami, #1605; Daylami, Musnad, #5756; Bayhaqi, Sunnan, 9/142; Hakim, Mustadrak, 2/141; Tabarani, al-Mizan, 4/89; Abu Nu’aym, Tarikh Asbahan, 1/123

2- Shaykh Muhammad Ibn Abd’il Latif al'ash Shaykh said: "And Rasulullah (sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam) said:

مَنْ جَامَعَ الْمُشْرِكَ وَسَكَنَ مَعَهُ فَإِنَّهُ مِثْلُهُ

"Whoever joins the Mushrik and lives with him; then he is indeed just like him."

It should not be thought that anyone who merely stays with and lives with the Mushrik is a Kafir; rather, what is intended (by this Hadith) is that whoever is incapable of exiting from the midst of the Mushrikin, and they force him to go out with them (to fight the Muslims), then the ruling regarding him is the same regarding them (the Mushrikin), in the permissibility in killing (him) and seizing his wealth; but the ruling is not the same in his Takfir. But if he goes out with the Kuffar to fight the Muslims, out of greed (for the worldly benefits) or due to his own choice (without being coerced); or helps them physically or with his wealth; then there is no doubt in the fact that the ruling regarding his Kufr is the same as the Mushrikin." (ad-Durar'us Saniyyah, 8/456-457; Majmu’at'ur Rasa’il wa’l Masa’il, 2/135)

3- "But if they are made to suffer for (the sake of) Allah, they consider the Fitnah (trial) of mankind as the Punishment of Allah!.."

meaning, when they suffer from the harm which is inflicted by the Kuffar against the Muslims, they make this "Fitnah (trial) of mankind" an excuse to apostatize from the Din -and all refuge is sought with Allah- as if it (the harm inflicted upon them) is (worse than) the eternal Punishment of Allah.

"The Fitnah of mankind"

means the injuries and harm inflicted upon them from the Kuffar." Allah said:

وَمِنَ النَّاسِ مَن يَعْبُدُ اللَّهَ عَلَى حَرْفٍ فَإِنْ أَصَابَهُ خَيْرٌ اطْمَأَنَّ بِهِ وَإِنْ أَصَابَتْهُ فِتْنَةٌ انقَلَبَ عَلَى وَجْهِهِ خَسِرَ الدُّنْيَا وَالْآخِرَةَ ذَلِكَ هُوَ الْخُسْرَانُ الْمُبِينُ

"And among mankind is he who worships Allah as if he were upon an edge (of doubt): if good befalls him, he is content therewith; but if a trial befalls him, he turns back on his face. He loses both this world and the Hereafter. That is the evident loss." (al-Hajj 22/11)
Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said:

إِنَّ النَّاسَ دَخَلُوا فِي دِينِ اللهِ أَفْوَاجًا، وَسَيَخْرُجُونَ مِنْهُ أَفْوَاجًا

"Verily, the people have entered into the religion of Allah in crowds and they will also leave it in crowds." (Ahmad, Musnad)

Conclusion

And the evidences regarding this are many; and this should be sufficient for whomsoever Allah wishes to guide.

But as for the one for whom Allah wishes Fitnah and misguidance for, then it is just as He (subhanahu wa ta'ala) said:


إِنَّ الَّذِينَ حَقَّتْ عَلَيْهِمْ كَلِمَتُ رَبِّكَ لاَ يُؤْمِنُونَ وَلَوْ جَاءتْهُمْ كُلُّ آيَةٍ حَتَّى يَرَوُاْ الْعَذَابَ الأَلِيمَ

“Truly! Those, against whom the Word (Wrath) of your Lord has been justified, will not be believe -even if every Ayah came to them- until they see the Painful Torment.” (Yunus 10/96-97)

And we ask Allah; al-Karim (The Generous) al-Mannan (The Gracious), by His Mercy;

that He make us live as Muslims, and

that he make us die as Muslims, and

that He gather us with the righteous, not being humiliated, nor as those having fallen into Fitnah.

And He is the Most Merciful of those who show mercy.

And may Allah shower prayers and many salutations of peace upon our Prophet Muhammad, and on his family and on all of his Companions till the Day of Judgment.

Amin! Dhumma Amin!1

1- End of the words of Imam Sulayman Ibn Abdillah Ibn Muhammad Ibn Abd'il Wahhab, may Allah show them His Mercy and forgive their sins, and enter them into the Jannat al-Firdaws.

And may Allah make their righteous deeds heavy in the Mīzan (scale) with their books and teachings of Tawhid.

And may Allah raise them along with the Prophets, the Truthful, the Martyrs and the Righteous.

And may Allah grant them the intercession of the Messenger
ﺻﻠﻰ اﷲ ﻋﻠﻴﻬ ﻢ و ﺳﻠﻢ And may Allah accept us as Mu'minin, Muslimin, Muwahhidin, Hunafa.

Amin!..
