War is stratagem! [Do not be deceived by Treacherous Houthies’ (Raafidah) declaration of war against Genocidal Zionists of Palestine]

In The Name of Allah, The Most Merciful, The Bestower of Mercy.

Ka’b Bin Maalik [may Allah be pleased with him] said, “When the Prophet [peace and blessings of Allah be upon him] intended to go on an expedition (against a people with whom there is no treaty and war was declared), he always pretended to be going somewhere else, and he would say, ‘War is stratagem‘”. [1]

Imam Al-Tabari [may Allah have mercy upon him] said, “To give a wrong impression – during war – through Mu’aaradah [i.e. making one’s statements or actions obscure (ambiguous) to mislead the opponent about one’s real plans] is allowed”. [2]

Ibnul Arabi [may Allah have mercy upon him] said, “Stratagem during war occurs by way of concealment and giving a wrong impression (to the opponent)”. [3]

The scholars unanimously agree that it is permissible to deceive the unbelievers [i.e. when a Muslim country declares war], but this is not permissible if it violates a covenant or an agreement that was made for a guarantee of safety. [4]

However, stratagem does not necessitate treachery. Abul Fayd [may Allah have mercy upon him] narrated that Sulaym Ibn Amir [may Allah have mercy upon him] reported that there was a peace treaty between Mu’aawiyah [may Allaah be pleased with him and his father] and the Byzantines. He was marching towards their country and when the covenant came to an end, he would attack them. A man came on a horse, saying, “Allah is the Most Great! Allah is the Most Great! Let there be fulfillment and not treachery!” Mu’aawiyah sent for him and questioned him about that. He said, “I heard Allah’s Messenger [peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him] say, ‘When one has a covenant with people he must not strengthen or loosen it until its term comes to an end or he brings it to an end in agreement with them’. He said, ‘So Mu’aawiyah returned with the people'”. [5]

Abdullah Ibn Umar [may Allah be pleased with him and his father] reported that Allah’s Messenger [peace and blessings of Allah be upon him] said, “When Allah gathers the earlier and later generations on the Day of Resurrection, He will raise a banner for every treacherous person and it will be announced that this is the treachery of this person, the son of this person”. [6]

Indeed, the Hoothies (Raafidah) of Yemen and their Raafidah allies elsewhere do not recognize the legitimacy of any Muslim rulership other than one led by a Raafidi. If they avoid open confrontation against any Sunni ruler or Sunni country, it is for the greater benefit it offers them or due to fear of greater evil, but not due to honesty, loyalty, or fair play because their Aqeedah of Taqiyyah does not allow them to behave honourably. Al-Haafidh Ibn Hajr [may Allah have mercy upon him] said: It (Taqiyyah) is to be careful of making known to others what is in the heart with regards to one’s creed or other than it. [7]

Kulayni, a well-known senior figurehead of the Raafidah, said, “Taqiyyah is from my religion and the religion of my forefathers, and there is no Imaan for the one who does not have Taqiyyah”. [8] Kulayni also stated in Usool Al-kaafee (the main book containing their heretical and polytheistic beliefs) that nine-tenths of (their) religion is based on Taqiyyah and one cannot be (ascribed to the Raafidah religion) if he has no Taqiyyah. [9]

This dangerous belief makes it almost impossible to trust a Raafidi, particularly when it comes to matters of politics, national security, and loyalty. However, some dishonest political partisans, blinded by their corrupt political ambitions and love of power, attempt to confuse the general public, or at the very least, weaken and destroy the correct precautions that Muslims must take when dealing with the heretical Raafidah. Some of these dishonest political partisans say that Taqiyyah is established in Islam rather than something unique to the Raafidah. But these Satanic forces of deception among the political groups withhold the whole truth about the distinctions between the Taqiyyah allowed in the pure Islamic law and the Satanic Taqiyyah used by the heretical Raafidah. They do not make known the fact that the legislated permissible Taqiyyah is a concession and not a conviction in one’s faith, as Mu’aadh Ibn Jabal [may Allah be pleased with him] said, “Taqiyyah was (employed by the believers at the time when) Islam was new and before the Muslims gained authority, but as for today, Allah has strengthened Islaam and the (believers) do not fear their enemies”. [10]

Therefore, this Taqiyyah (i.e. being careful of stating one’s true belief and fear of manifesting it to an aggressive opponent due to fear of being murdered or afflicted with great harm) is employed whilst dealing with the oppressive tyrannical disbelievers and not with the believers. “Taqiyyah is not permissible except out of fear of being killed, lacerated, or (afflicted) with great harm. So, whoever is forced to utter disbelief, then what is correct is that he remains firm and does not respond by uttering a statement of disbelief, but it is permissible to do so (as a concession whilst his heart is firm upon Imaan and not in agreement with what he has uttered due to being forced)”. [11]

Regarding the Taqiyya used by the Raafidah heretics, this is all the opposite of what the pure Islamic law allowed; instead, they conceal their disbelief from the general Muslim populace, particularly in those Muslim countries where the populace is well aware of their false beliefs while demonstrating their agreement. That’s why any rational person understands that the Houthies’ war cry against the Zionists can never be free from Taqiyyah and betrayal because this is their way of pursuing corrupt religious and political advantage throughout Islamic history. So, while the genocidal spoilt brats of the American Democrats (the Zionists of Palestine) continue to commit war crimes and seek to consolidate their apartheid state, the Houthies (Raafidah- grave worshippers) believe the time has come to utilise “Taqiyyah” by launching cruise missiles and drones at the genocidal Zionists from a distance of more than 1,240 miles away while being absolutely certain that they must first escape US Navy ships patrolling the vicinity that can shoot them down, and then the Zionist Navy missile corvettes stationed in the Red Sea.

Second, Yemen is positioned at the southern end of the Arabian Peninsula, bordering Saudi Arabia to the north and Oman to the northeast, as well as sharing maritime borders with Eritrea, Djibouti, and Somalia. Surrounded by all of these countries, the Houthies’ declaration of so-called war on the Zionists is akin to a boastful troublemaker attempting to throw a punch at a stronger enemy but having bodyguards to defend him or having already planned his escape route into the neighbourhood when the enemy chases him. These Houthies only have two goals by announcing a so-called war against Zionists: [a] if the genocidal Zionists were to respond to them and end up harming the other countries in that region and thus a wider conflict and chaos occurs, they (Houthies) and their Ikhwaani allies can maneuver with the secret assistance of Iran to establish a political presence in some provinces of those Sunni countries because they do not believe in the legitimacy of any Sunni government anyway. [b] if the genocidal Zionists ignore them or retaliate without causing harm to others, they aim to be viewed as the only ones in that region standing up to the Zionists, gaining the sympathy and support of naive Muslims in the short term until they can achieve their long-term goals in the region with the discreet assistance of Iran.

Indeed, the shrewd Sunni leaders are well acquainted with the history and antics of the Raafidah. Abu Hurairah [may Allah be pleased with him] reported that the Prophet [peace and blessings of Allah be upon him] said, “The believer is not stung twice from the same hole”. [12] Imaam Abdul Azeez Bin Baaz [may Allah have mercy upon him] was asked, “The believer is not stung twice from the same hole”. Is this a hadeeth? He replied, “Yes, it is an authentic Hadeeth and its meaning is that it is obligated to a believer that he is cautious if he was harmed by a person. If Zayd once deceived him, then he is cautious so that Zayd does not deceive him again. If Amr committed injustice against him in a mutual dealing, he is cautious in another mutual dealing. This is what the affair is, meaning that it is obligated to him to prevent the evil of the one who deceived or harmed him the first time”. [13]

Shiite betrayals in the Arab Sunni countries in the modern era: We all know that Iran is like a nurturing mother for all Rawaafid, especially the Twelvers everywhere. Wherever they are distributed, they owe more loyalty to Iran than to the land in which they live. We all know that when Khomeini’s Raafidah revolution occurred, it garnered huge support from Rawaafid all over the world, and they saw it as the first flame that would ignite the entire region.

Bahrain: It was only a short period before Iran announced its intentions and an official stated the demand to annex Bahrain to Iran and some Islands in Kuwait, etc. He claimed that about 85% of Bahrain’s population- under the leadership of their so-called Hujjah al-Islam Sayyid Hadi al-Mudarrisi – are Shiites and they are persecuted. Khumeini’s special representative in Bahrain and Tehran Radio broadcast – on 8/30/1979 – demanded the release of Sayyed Hadi Al-Mudarresi, then about a dozen Raafidah leaders in Bahrain sparked a revolt throughout the country and caused widespread riots. But before this incident, one should note that this person was originally Iranian and settled in Bahrain to implement these Raafidah goals. He plotted to initiate unrest as a result of his extremist sermons and statements, which always included a tendency towards loyalty to Iran while resenting the Sunnis, especially the rulers in Bahrain.

Kuwait: Ahmed Abbas Al-Mahri held seminars in Raafidah places of worship and began raising political issues such as housing issues and fairness to Shiites. The Shiites in Kuwait responded to him, and orders were issued from Khomeini to name Al-Mahri as Khomeini’s special representative in Kuwait and responsible for Friday prayers there. Statements continued in Tehran, sometimes expressing concern about the harassment suffered by Khomeini’s representative and his brothers, and sometimes threatening intervention.

Saudi: There are Shiite communities in the Eastern Region and since King Abdul- Azeez Al Saud [may Allah have mercy upon him] consolidated his authority in that area in 1913, this region has witnessed occasional opposition to Saudi rule by Shiite citizens. In 1925, a popular association was established under the leadership of Muhammad al-Habashi to express local demands. When oil was discovered, the eastern region gained new importance, and many Shiite citizens worked in the oil industry. In 1948, unrest reached the point of explosion in widespread demonstrations and chaos in the Qatif region, led by Muhammad bin Hassanein Al-Harraj. The rebels who were demanding secession from the kingdom were easily crushed. In 1949, the government discovered the existence of a revolutionary group in Qatif under the name of an educational association. The association was dissolved, and one of its leaders died in prison. This movement spread to Jubail until it was crushed in 1950. At the same time, there were large workers’ demonstrations in 1944, 1949, and 1953. In 1970, the Shiites caused major unrest in Qatif as well, so the government sent the National Guard to contain the unrest. In 1978, there was another explosion and demonstrations that led to arrests and widespread losses. The widespread unrest in Qatif in late 1979 coincided with the days of Ashura in the wake of the Iranian revolution, and it was an invitation from Khomeini to the Shiites of the eastern region, which included a call for revolution.

Yemen: When the Turks wanted to evacuate the country in 1337 AH, the Sunnis feared the Zaidi control over their country. Some Sunnis tried to resist, but their statements were not united. The Imam of the Zaidis in Yemen at that time surprised them with an army of the Zaidi tribes. Fierce battles took place that lasted six months, then the masses of the Sunnis were defeated, and they all submitted to the rule. They tortured, harmed, and killed Sunni scholars in Yemen, as they did to Shaikh Muhammad Saalih Al-Akhram when they arrested him in his old age. They kidnapped Shaikh Muqbil Bin Abdullah and killed the scholar Muhammad Bin Ali Al-Omrani Al-San’ani, one of the famous students of Imam Al-Shawkani. Recently, we’ve witnessed how the Hoothees with support from Iran joined the so-called Arab Spring and established political power after the Ikhwaanees rebelled against the government.

Iraq: Khomeini used them as a sabotage tool more often than not. Their betrayal of successive governments in Iraq is due to their resentment against their Sunni rulers, and their increasing loyalty towards the Raafidah of Iran. The presence of the three cities where Shirk is rife, namely, Najaf – Karbala – Al-Kadhimiya, which contain shrines, made the Raafidah of Iraq look forward to general support among other Raafidah everywhere when they declared revolt. They took advantage of the so-called fortieth anniversary of Hussein on February 5, 1977, sparking the revolution and carrying out demonstrations and riots that included most of the cities in southern Iraq. It was more than just a demonstration and disturbance. They were distributing periodic bulletins in Iraq and the Gulf under the title (Free Iraq) (The Voice of the Oppressed People). In these bulletins, they were calling for revolution against the rulers of Baghdad. And whenever they wanted to describe the injustice of the rulers of Baghdad, they likened them to Harun al-Rashid or to the rulers of the Umayyad era. After the Najaf and Karbala incidents, the Shiites established the so-called National Islamic Front in Iraq and issued a booklet under the title The National Islamic Front Program on February 22, 1977, two weeks after the incidents. The Iraqi government viewed this party in light of Khomeini’s clear encouragement of the Shiite struggle as a fifth column aiming to unify Iraq and Iran. The Iraqi government carried out widespread repression and accused some Raafidah leaders of planning to establish a Shiite state in Iraq and executed them. However, as soon as they had the opportunity when America and Britain declared war on Iraq under the false pretext of fighting terrorism, the Raafida found an opportunity to take control. They did not participate in the resistance carried out by the Iraqi army or people against this invading force, and they stood by and watched, but when Baghdad fell, the Raafidah took to the streets like rabid dogs, kidnapping, looting, and vandalizing, and all of this under the protection of their American masters. The Americans took advantage of these scenes created by the Raafidah in Iraq to present themselves as the loyal savior of Iraq. The Raafidah were looking forward to the demise of the Iraqi government and its replacement by a Shiite regime or one in which there would be a Shiite majority. This is why the senior Salafi scholars are always alert regarding their affairs. Al-Allaamah Rabee Bin Haadi Al-Mad’khali [may Allah preserve him] advised the rulers of Egypt regarding the plots of the Raafidah. Read below:
