Fiqh of Minorities: The Lofty Status of Prophet MUHAMMAD (peace be upon him)

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم
الحـمد لله والصلاة والسلام على رسول الله وعلى آلـه وصحبه ومن والاه

Living as minorities in non-Muslim countries, one attitude we can maintain is from what ibn Taymiyyah رحمه الله تعالى reported:

ونظير هذا ما حدثناه أعداد من المسلمين العدول أهل الفقه والخبرة عما جربوه مرات متعددة في حصر الحصون والمدائن التي بالسواحل الشامية، لما حصر المسلمون فيها بني الأصفر في زماننا، قالوا: كنا نحن نحصر الحصن أو المدينة الشهر أو أكثر من الشهر وهو ممتنع علينا حتى نكاد نيأس منه حتى إذا تعرض أهله لسب رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم والوقيعة في عِرْضِه، تعجلنا فتحه وتيسر ولم يكد يتأخر إلا يوماً أو يومين أو نحو ذلك، ثم يُفتح المكان عَنْوَة، ويكون فيهم ملحمة عظيمة، قالوا: حتى إن كنا لنتباشر بتعجيل الفتح إذا سمعناهم يقعون فيه مع امتلاء القلوب غيظاً عليهم بما قالوه فيه. وهكذا حدثني بعض أصحابنا الثقات أن المسلمين من أهل المغرب حالهم مع النصارى كذلك

“And this is what many trustworthy Muslims and people of Fiqh spoke of, about their experiences when they surrounded forts and towns in Sham and surrounded Bani al-Asfar (i.e. Roman Christians). They said: “We would surround the fortress or town for a month or more, until we almost despaired (that our siege was having no effect) and about to give up. Until the people of that place would start cursing the MESSENGER of Allaah صلى الله عليه وسلم and suddenly it would fall to our hands; sometimes the delay would not even be a day or two and it would be opened by force. So we would take it as a glad tiding when we would hear them curse the MESSENGER of Allah صلى الله عليه وسلم even though our hearts would be filled with fury and hatred for what they said, but we would see it as a glad tiding because it is a sign of our coming conquest. Thus, some of our companions said that some trustworthy Muslims from Morocco spoke of their (similar) experience with Christians there…”

[Taken from: Al-Sarim al-Maslool ala Shatim ar-Rasool]

Allaah سبحانه و تعالى Said in Al-Qur’an:

فَلْيَحْذَرِ الَّذِينَ يُخَالِفُونَ عَنْ أَمْرِهِ أَن تُصِيبَهُمْ فِتْنَةٌ أَوْ يُصِيبَهُمْ عَذَابٌ أَلِيمٌ

“…And let those who oppose (the Messenger’s) commandment beware lest some trial befall them or a painful torment be inflicted upon them.” [An-Noor: 34]

There are numerous examples from history, of the fate of those who were inflicted with fitnah and torment for their opposition to and mocking of the Sunnah of the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم. It is also from the Sunnah of Allaah that he will cut off those who have hatred towards His Messenger صلى الله عليه وسلم or oppose him in any way. This “cutting off” could render vain one’s good deeds (see 47:33) and lead to the prevention of every good thing in this world and in the Hereafter for them.

Allahumma sali’ala MUHAMMAD

If Allah makes you stand up you will never fall, and if he lets you fall and leaves you to yourself, you will always fall.
