In The Name of Allaah, The Most Merciful, The Bestower of Mercy.
The youth said, “I wish that I was able to physically help repel the aggression of this or that army in the ongoing conflict in Eastern Europe”. Indeed, this statement can only be expected from a youth who has either been influenced by a teacher or the mainstream media. Therefore, we remind ourselves of the statement of Allaah:
يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا قُوا أَنفُسَكُمْ وَأَهْلِيكُمْ نَارًا وَقُودُهَا النَّاسُ وَالْحِجَارَةُ عَلَيْهَا مَلَائِكَةٌ غِلَاظٌ شِدَادٌ لَّا يَعْصُونَ اللَّهَ مَا أَمَرَهُمْ وَيَفْعَلُونَ مَا يُؤْمَرُونَ
O you who believe! Ward off from yourselves and your families a Fire (Hell) whose fuel is men and stones, over which are (appointed) angels stern (and) severe, who disobey not, (from executing) the Commands they receive from Allah, but do that which they are commanded. [Surah At-Tahreem: Ayah 6]
Al-Allaamah Abdullah Bin Humaid [may Allaah have mercy upon him] said: “The meaning of ‘O you who believe’: Some of the pious predecessors said that if you hear the statement of Allaah ‘O you who believe’, then listen attentively because it is either something good you are being commanded or something forbidden you are being prohibited from. And regarding the statement ‘’Ward off from yourselves and your families a Fire (Hell)’, this cannot be achieved except by fulfilling the commandments of Allaah and keeping away from what He has forbidden. This is what the statement ‘Ward off from yourselves’’ means – fulfilling the rights of the Shahaadah [the testimony of faith ‘None has the right to be worshipped except Allaah’, worshipping Allaah (alone), acquainting yourself with Pure Islamic Monotheism and free the testimony of faith from all that either negates it or that which negates the obligations it necessitates.
(Likewise), free the Shahaadah from innovations in the religion which are a belittlement of it and the sins that diminishes its worth. Likewise, the statement “Muhammad is the Messenger of Allaah” has rights, and that is to fulfil what the Messenger [peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him] commanded and keep away from everything he has forbidden, and that your worship is carried out in accordance with what the Messenger legislated. It is well known that children are the most important part of the family, therefore you must protect them from the fire. And what is this protection? It is the advice and guidance you give them about that which will benefit them- teaching them what is beneficial and correct through which sound faith is nurtured in the hearts and they come to know the rights of their Creator and the rights of their parents.
Therefore, they must be taught what benefits them and distanced from evil companions. And protecting the family (necessitates) that you distance your children from evil companions- those who have no goodness in them, such as the atheists or those Bedouins who are distanced from their religion. You must warn your children about mixing with them and strive to (make sure that) they do not mix with them. If your child mixes with them, their evil practices will affect him. Even if your child is sensible, he will adopt some of their manners and deeds due to those evil companions.
It is obligated on the teachers to implant the true creed in the hearts of the young generation. They should clarify -for them- the wisdom, beauty and underlying reasons behind the rulings of the Islamic law until their hearts grow in Eemaan and radiated with its light, so that they become upright and benefit their country, governments, Islamic Nation, its people and the Religion. Therefore, the teacher who teachers your child should be an upright example for his pupils.
Your children are a trust and when you neglect them, then indeed you have betrayed them. It is obligated on every one of us to fear Allaah with regards to the (affair) of his children and those under his care. The days go past and the end of a lifespan draws closer, and a person does not know when his life span will suddenly come to (an end). (one) must strive to teach his children beneficial knowledge, nurture them upon goodness and obedience to (Allaah and His Messenger). “All of you are shepherds and each of you is responsible for his flock. A man is the shepherd of his household and he is responsible for them. A woman is a shepherdess in her husband’s house and she is responsible for her flock”.

This is the first affair obligated on us, therefore let us keep our children away from all those who seek to corrupt them, especially the devils in the media.

Secondly, just as we strive to teach our children the correct Islamic methodology and warn them against the methodology of the Jihadist Terrorists – those who commit atrocities in the name of Islam, likewise we warn them against those who initiate wars or proxy wars only to further their geopolitical agendas. Neither does the Muslim engage in battle for the sake of worldly gain nor due to a desire for power. Abu Musa [may Allaah be pleased with him] said, “A man came to the Prophet [peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him] and asked, ‘O Allah’s Messenger! What kind of fighting is in Allah’s cause? (I ask this), as some of us fight because of being enraged and angry and some for the sake of his pride and haughtiness’. The Prophet raised his head (as the questioner was standing) and said, ‘He who fights so that Allah’s Word (Islam) should be superior, then he fights in Allah’s cause'”. [Saheeh Al-Bukhaari. Hadeeth Number 123].

Thirdly, there is no doubt that during war or conflict, every person with an atom’s weight of mercy would feel very sad when witnessing innocent people, whether Muslims or non-Muslims, being expelled from their homes and harmed – either deliberately by wicked individuals, or placed in harm’s way by those who provoke a more powerful opponent, fail to distinguish themselves from civilians, operate among the civilian population, use human shields or even engage in activities that cause civilian casualties that can be blamed on the opponent. This is often the satanic strategy of the terrorists who ascribe to Islam and it has also been recently utilised by the satanic neo-Nazis of Ukraine. “The people said to Jundub [may Allaah be pleased with him], ‘Advise us’. He said, ‘The first thing of the human body to putrefy is the abdomen, so he who can eat nothing but good food (halaal and earned lawfully) should do so, and he who does as much as he can that nothing intervenes between him and paradise by not shedding even a handful of blood [i.e. unlawful killing], should do so'”. [Saheeh Al-Bukhaari. Number 7152]
So, when a Muslim youth said to us recently, ““I wish that I was able to physically help repel the aggression of this or that army in the ongoing conflict in Eastern Europe”, we reminded him that many wars – in our era -are either started due to greed or a desire for control and exploitation. The greedy globalists, secularists, neo-colonialists, the misguided Jihadists and the Raafidah Shiites of Iran are mostly responsible for this calamity. Therefore, even though we’ll feel very sad when witnessing bloodshed and destruction, but never should we be diverted from the fact that all this evil is often initiated by these misguided groups. The insane Jihadists initiate rebellion to promote their religious innovations and the globalists (secularists, neo-colonialists) and Raafidah Shiites of Iran initiate proxy wars. The globalists in particular do not support any party in a war without ulterior motives, but rather they only take sides if they can gain something more than they lose, otherwise they turn a blind eye. Allegiance is only given if the ally can be used as means of promoting geopolitical agendas – either to weaken or gradually destroy their historical opponents who either possess nuclear weapons or have an army that can confront them. Therefore, do not allow anyone to corrupt your children – neither the Jihadists and Rawaafid Shiites nor the globalists (secularists, neo-colonialists). Jihadists and Raafidah Shiites initiate wars due to corrupt religious beliefs, and the globalists engage in both military, ideological and economic war in order to tighten their grip on the rest of the world and always looking for absurd excuses to invade other countries. Therefore, just as we warn our children against the Jihadists and Raafidah Shiites, likewise beware of those who seek to make our youth pawns in their chess games. Reminder about their double standards: Stinking Double Standards!

It must be made very clear that the mainstream media, educators – whether in primary and secondary schools or colleges and universities-, so called celebrities, influencers, sports personalities and ideologues, none of them are fit to be advisers to the Muslim youth, rather the Ummah has been commanded to return to the elder scholars in times of adversity, as Al-Allaamah Ubaid Bin Abdillaah Al-Jaabiriy [may Allaah preserve him] stated, “When the people of virtue and righteousness were faced with an adversity and an intricate affair, they would go to the senior people of knowledge to ask them and seek a Jawaab Ash-Shaafee Al-Kaafee [i.e. an appropriate answer that would bring about rectification of the religious affairs and preservation of the well-being of the people based on the Qur’aan and the Sunnah]. This is a followed path –beginning since the era of Prophet’s companions, then the Imaams of the Taabi’een and then – after them – the people of knowledge, virtue, religion and Eemaan. And how beautiful is what Ibn Mas’ood said: The people will not cease to be righteous and upright as long as knowledge comes to them from the companions of Muhammad [peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him] and their elders; but if knowledge comes to them from their young ones, they will be destroyed”.

We advised the youth to supplicate to Allaah to remove the suffering of all those affected by war in different regions of the earth. He accepted the advice and realised that he was duped by the mainstream media due to inexperience. May Allaah bring about peace and security for all innocent Yemenis, Ukrainians, Russians and all those affected by war. And may Allaah protect us and our children from the plots of the misguided ones – the Jihadists, the Rawaafid Shiites of Iran, the globalists, secularists and all other proxy war initiators Aameen.
