“O mankind! There hath come to you a direction from your Lord and a healing for the (diseases) in our hearts—and for those who believe, a Guidance and a Mercy.” (10:57)


“Who is better in speech than one who calls (men) to Allah, works righteousness, and says, ‘I am of those who bow in Islam’? Nor can Goodness and Evil be equal. Repel (Evil) with what is better: Then will he between whom and thee was hatred become as it were thy friend and intimate! And no one will be granted such goodness except those who exercise patience and self-restraint—None but persons of the greatest good fortune.” (41:33-35)

 “O ye who believe! What is the matter with you, that, when ye are asked to go forth in the Cause of Allah, ye cling heavily to the earth? Do ye prefer the life of this world to the Hereafter? But little is the comfort of this life, as compared with the Hereafter. Unless ye go forth, He will punish you with a grievous penalty, and put others in your place; But Him ye would not harm in the least. For Allah hath power over all things. If ye help not (your Leader), (It is no matter): for Allah did indeed help him, when the Unbelievers made him leave: he had no more than once companion: The two were in the Cave, and he said to his companion, ‘Have no fear for Allah is with us’: then Allah sent down His peace upon him, and strengthened him with forces which ye saw not, and humbled to the depths the word of the Unbelievers. But the Word of Allah is exalted to the heights: For Allah is Exalted in might, Wise. Go ye forth, (whether equipped) lightly or heavily, and strive and struggle, with your goods and your persons, in the Cause of Allah. That is best for you, if ye (but) knew. If there had been immediate gain (in sight), and the journey easy, they would (all) without doubt have followed thee, but the distance was long, (and weighed) on them. They would indeed swear by Allah, ‘If we only could, we should certainly have come out with you.’ They would destroy their own souls, for Allah doth know that they are certainly lying.” (9:39-42)

“Or do ye think that ye shall enter the Garden (of Bliss) without such (trials) as came to those who passed away before you? They encountered suffering and adversity, and were so shaken in spirit that even the Messenger and those of faith who were with him cried: ‘When (will come) the help of Allah’—Ah! Verily, the help of Allah is (always) near!" (2:214)

“Fighting is prescribed upon you, and ye dislike it. But it is possible that ye dislike a thing which is good for you, and that ye love a thing which is bad for you. But Allah knoweth, and ye know not. They ask thee concerning fighting in the Prohibited Month. Say: ‘Fighting therein is a grave (offence); but graver is it in the sight of Allah to prevent access to the path of Allah, to deny Him, to prevent access to the Sacred Mosque, and drive out its members.’ Tumult and oppression are worse than slaughter. Nor will they cease fighting you until they turn you back from your faith if they can. And if any of you turn back from their faith and die in unbelief, their works will bear no fruit in this life and in the Hereafter; They will be Companions of the Fire and will abide therein. Those who believed and those who suffered exile and fought (and strove and struggled) in the path of Allah—They have the hope of the Mercy of Allah: And Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.” (2:216-218)

     “Let those fight in the cause of Allah who sell the life of this world for the Hereafter. To him who fighteth in the cause of Allah—whether he is slain or gets victory—soon shall We give him a reward of great (value). And why should ye not fight in the cause of Allah and of those who, being weak, are ill-treated (and oppressed)?—Men, women, and children, whose cry is: ‘Our Lord! Rescue us from this town, whose people are oppressors; And raise for us from Thee one who will protect; and raise for us from Thee one who will help! Those who believe fight in the cause of Allah, and those who reject Faith fight in the cause of Evil: So fight ye against the Friends of Satan: feeble indeed is the coming of Satan. Hast thou not turned thy vision to those who were told to hold back their hands (from fight) but establish regular prayers and spend in regular Charity? When (at length) the order for fighting was issued to them, Behold! A section of them feared men as—or even more than—they should have feared Allah. They said: ‘Our Lord! Why hast Thou ordered us to fight? Wouldst Thou not grant us respite to our (natural) term, near (enough)?’ Say: ‘Short is the enjoyment of this world: The Hereafter is the best for those who do right; Never will ye be dealt with unjustly in the very least! Wherever ye are, death will find you out, even if ye are in towers built up strong and high!...” (4:74-76) 

“O ye who believe! Stand out firmly for justice as  witnesses to Allah, even as against yourselves, or your parents, or your kin, and whether it be (against) rich or poor: For Alah can best protect both. Follow not the lusts (of your hearts), lest ye swerve, and if ye distort (justice) or decline to do justice, verily Allah is well-acquainted with all that ye do.” (4:135)

Abu Sa’id al-Khudri (ra) reported that he heard the Messenger of Allah (saw) saying: “He who amongst you sees something abominable, should modify it with the help of his hand and if he can’t do it then he should do it with his tongue. And if he can’t do so then he should abhor it from his heart and bear in mind that it is the weakest of faith.” (Muslim)

It is related by ‘Abdullah bin ‘Umar (ra) that the Apostle of Allah (saw) said: “Every Muslim is a Muslim’s brother. He should neither harm him himself nor leave him alone when others treat him unjustly, (but try to help him). Whoever will fulfill the need of a brother, Allah (swt) will fulfill his need, and whoever will remove the distress of a Muslim, he will find a distress of his removed on the Day of Requital, and whoever will hide the shame of a Muslim, his sins will be hidden by Allah (swt) on the Last Day.” (Muslim)

Jabir bin ‘Abdullah (ra) related: “I had taken the pledge at the hand of the Apostle of Allah (saw) to observe Salah, and to pay Zakat, and to be a sincere well-wisher of every Muslim.” (Bukhari, Muslim)

It is related by Hudaifah that the Messenger of Allah (saw) said: “Whoever does not take an interest in the affairs and problems of Muslims is not of them, and whoever’s state is such that, each morning and evening, he is not loyal and earnest towards Allah (swt), towards his Apostle, towards His Book, towards His imam (i.e., the Caliph of the day), and towards the Muslims, as a whole, he is not of them.” (Tabarani)


Strategic management is a process of analyzing the current situation; developing appropriate strategies; putting those strategies into action; and evaluating, modifying, or changing those strategies as needed. The basic activities in strategic management are:
  1. Situation analysis. Scanning your environment; recognizing and recalling history and behavior patterns of those around you—particularly your enemy; monitoring and evaluating strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats. 
  2. Strategy formulation. This includes: 1) mission – your reason for existing; 2) goals – steps to be accomplished in working toward the mission; 3) objectives – smaller results that must be achieved within a time limit; 4) strategies – plans and methods to achieve the mission, goals, and objectives; and 5) policies – broad guidelines for decision-making.
  3. Strategy implementation. This includes: 1) programs – activities needed to accomplish the overall plan; 2) budgets – meeting the costs related to these programs; and 3) procedures – sequence of steps needed to do the job. 
  4. Evaluation and control. Monitoring performance and taking corrective action.  

As per the rules of strategic management, our situation analysis (environmental scanning) shows the following:
  • Nigeria: Boko Haram, a radical, non-productive Saudi-funded movement killing innocent Christians and Muslims, claiming Islamic motivations; therefore justifying anti-Muslim sentiment and actions in Nigeria, a country which needs healing—not sectarian disease. 
  • Mali, Timbuktu: Another Saudi-funded movement destroying hundreds of years of Islamic African history and educational, cultural, and artistic output—all on behalf of their jealous, ignorant Saudi misfits.  
  • Somalia: Triple invasions by Ethiopia and Kenya.  
  • Afghanistan: Invasion; wholesale genocide.  
  • Pakistan: Ongoing drone attacks; targeted killings.  
  • Yemen: Drone attacks. 
  • Palestine: Open air prison in Gaza; rampant illegal settlements. 
  • Iraq: Invasion; over a million dead.  
  • Bahrain, Egypt, Tunisia, eastern provinces in Saudi Arabia: Evolving situations.

It is apparent that there is a global war on Islam. In these circumstances, Islamic leadership must stand up and lead.

We have a vision and a mission here in America. It is outlined in the Qur’an (see 41:33-35 above):

1.    Call people to Allah (swt).
2.    Work righteous deeds and proudly declare, “I am a Muslim.”
3.    Cultivate friendship with the people of the West. This is possible.

We do not call you to any kind of physical or military confrontation in America; we only ask that you stand up for justice and fair play. On our part, we pledge to continue struggling with our limited resources until the Triangle of Terror—constituted by: a) the U.S. government (not its people); b) Zionist media propaganda; and c) Saudi-led global fitnah in service of Zionist masters—is neutralized.
