Muslims blessed by Allah,
We write this letter after reading a letter written by Mads Gilbert, Professor and Head of Emergency Clinic and Medicine Services in University Hospital, Northern Norway. He serve as a doctor in the biggest hospital in Gaza, Ash-Shifa during the latest war. He writes the letter to Obama, entitled “Obama, do you have a heart?” ( click here for the full letter ). Therefore, we rewrite the letter to all Muslims, especially people in Arab countries near Gaza. where is our conscience in seeing condition of Gaza people today?
Muslims blessed by Allah,
Remember, our silence about fate of our brothers and sisters in Gaza will lead to great disaster and damage on the earth. Allah Ta’ala has warned in Al-Qur’an:
وَالَّذِيۡنَ كَفَرُوۡا بَعۡضُهُمۡ اَوۡلِيَآءُ بَعۡضٍؕ اِلَّا تَفۡعَلُوۡهُ تَكُنۡ فِتۡنَةٌ فِى الۡاَرۡضِ وَفَسَادٌ كَبِيۡرٌؕ
“And those who disbelieve are allies of one another, (and) if you (Muslims of the whole world collectively) do not do so [i.e. become allies, as one united block under one Khalifah (a chief Muslim ruler for the whole Muslim world) to make victorious Allâh’s religion of Islâmic Monotheism], there will be Fitnah (wars, battles, polytheism) and oppression on the earth, and a great mischief and corruption (appearance of polytheism).” (Surah al-Anfal; 8:73)
To Muslims in Egypt,
Will you close Rafah gate fully? while thousands of your own brothers died by evil hands of Zionist soldiers. The Zionists are more cruel than animals. They may be a human personification condemned by Allah into apes in the past and they reveal its original form now.
Zionist State of Israel no longer instructed by humans, but by damned apes. Benjamin Netanyahu and his cabinet is animals that do not deserve to be treated as human beings.
For Egyptian, ulema, and anyone who have influence in the country “Will they remain to close Rafah gate?” Please open the Rafah gate immediately in order that our brothers and sisters in Gaza get medical treatment properly and we can distribute medicines to them.
To Muslims in Saudi Arabia,
Do you still feel pride with the “Guardians of Two Holy Places” title? While twin brother of Masjid al-Haram, al-Aqsa Mosques are in dangerous condition. You remain silent and do not pray for it.
Remember Muslims of Saudi Arabia, Allah enliven you through Masjidil Haram and Nabawi mosques. Billions of money support you because of their love to Masjidil Haram and Nabawi mosques. Where is our money? Do you only use the money to heighten buildings around Masjidil al-Haram, which makes Kaaba small.
Use the money you get to support our brothers and sisters in Gaza expelling Zionist Israelis who have seized our land. Are you afraid of being called “terrorists” by the master of terrorists. Are you not afraid that Allah would call you wicked people for allowing enemies violate our brothers’ honor .
To Muslims in Iran,
Where is your superiority you are proud of? You beat “big devil” and expel your king.
Why do you not prove your superiority to help people in Gaza expelling Zionists? Is it because most of population in Gaza are Sunni and you are Shi’ite? Where is your commitment to emphasizing and achieving Muslims unity? Iranian Ambassador for Indonesia said that unity was key in fighting the spread of various forms of backbiting among Muslims (Republika, 22 july 2014). I can not imagine how your reaction if Shi’ite Hezbollah in Lebanon attacked by enemy. I’m sure you will not be silent, such as when ISIS annoy Shiite regime in Iraq.
To Muslims in Iraq, Lebanon, and the Syiria,
Are you going to continue shedding bloods of fellow Muslims? While our Muslim brothers and sisters in Gaza were waiting their destruction. Why you do not point out your weapons to Zionist Israel whom Allah mention them clearly as most hard enemy beside polytheists.
To Muslims in Indonesia,
We oblige to help people in Gaza because we live in the largest Muslim country in the world. We also live in the most fertile land in the world. We must remember mandate of Indonesian Constitution that freedom is the rights of all nations. Therefore, occupation should be abolished in the world because it is contrary with humanity and fairness.
“Will we let Zionist Israelis continue their colonization in land of Palestine?” As good citizens, we should reply “No!”.
To Muslims everywhere,
Let us move in supporting Muslims in Gaza and do not let them struggle alone. Remember that Allah will ask what you have done for them.
To Muslims in Gaza,
Believe that all Muslims and human beings with conscience are behind you. Keep fighting because you are in right position. You have given example to the world about meaning of patience, valor, courage, and submission to Allah. Keep determined that you will win as long as you have faith in Allah. There is no word “lose” for people who have faith in Allah Subhanahu wa Ta’ala. (T/YM/Syt/E01)
