The Word of Al-Morshed
The memory of Al-kiblah
Changing and the beginning of a new school year
A message from Muhammad Mahdi Akef, the guide of the group of Moslem Brothers
Published on 09/15/2005
Praise is to Allah! The Lord of the worlds, and the prayer and the peace on the delegate who is a mercy for the worlds… Our leader Mohammad and on his clean, goodness associates all together,
The Moslems keep alive nowadays the memory of the Al-kiblah changing from the al-Aqsa mosque to the Holy Mosque in Mecca, in the meantime our sons and our girls prepare for the beginning of the new school year. About these two matters our talk is this week:
The change of Al-kiblah
The change of Al-kiblah – which was in the second year for the emigration – excreted an old convulsion in the society of the city of Al-Madinah Al Monawara and what is around it, this event was an experimentation and a testing for the believers and a charm for the others: "The foolish of the people will say: What hath turned them from the kiblah which they formerly observed? Say: Unto Allah belong the East and the West. He guided whom He will unto a straight path. Thus we have appointed you a middle nation, that ye may be witnesses against mankind. And that the messenger may be a witness against you. And we appointed the kiblah which ye formerly observed only that we might know him who followed the messenger, from him who turned on his heels. In truth it was a hard (test) save for those whom Allah guided. But it was not Allah’s purpose that your faith should be in vain, for Allah is full of pity, Merciful toward mankind." (Al-Baqara: 142-143)
: ?سَيَقُولُ السُّفَهَاءُ مِنَ النَّاسِ مَا وَلاَّهُمْ عَنْ قِبْلَتِهِمُ الَّتِي كَانُوا عَلَيْهَا قُلْ لِلَّهِ الْمَشْرِقُ وَالْمَغْرِبُ يَهْدِي مَنْ يَشَاءُ إِلَى صِرَاطٍ مُسْتَقِيمٍ* وَكَذَلِكَ جَعَلْنَاكُمْ أُمَّةً وَسَطًا لِتَكُونُوا شُهَدَاءَ عَلَى النَّاسِ وَيَكُونَ الرَّسُولُ عَلَيْكُمْ شَهِيدًا وَمَا جَعَلْنَا الْقِبْلَةَ الَّتِي كُنْتَ عَلَيْهَا إِلاَّ لِنَعْلَمَ مَنْ يَتَّبِعُ الرَّسُولَ مِمَّنْ يَنْقَلِبُ عَلَى عَقِبَيْهِ وَإِنْ كَانَتْ لَكَبِيرَةً إِلاَّ عَلَى الَّذِينَ هَدَى اللَّهُ وَمَا كَانَ اللَّهُ لِيُضِيعَ إِيمَانَكُمْ إِنَّ اللَّهَ بِالنَّاسِ لَرَؤُوفٌ رَحِيمٌ? (البقرة: 142-143).
A difficult experimentation for the Moslems
The Moslems were in Mecca before the emigration , they betake themselves to the Kaaba in their prayer , but they came out of their houses in which they were used to living, and their homeland which they loved, and they emigrate to Al-Madinah Al Monawara city; Submitting to the warrant of Allah and His messenger , and to straighten the Moslem society , and to be able to perform of their religion observances freely, the emigration was difficult on atmen of Mohammad and his associates all together ,..
the Prophet said to Mecca " you are one of Allah’ countries that I love most but for your people expelled me from you I wouldn’t go out " and he, who said to Belal – may God be pleased with him – when he saw him remember Mecca with its avenues : " O Belal , put down the hearts receives hospitably…" in the middle of these atmospheres and with the newness of the Moslem convention by the emigration and in the second year of it, they were ordered to face Jerusalem in their prayer, in spite of its standing in the atmen of the Moslems. Islam wants the hearts of the Moslems and their atmen to be pure and for Allah alone, follow his orders and avoid his contraindications, infallible from self affection. Here, the difference between who betakes for Allah and his messenger and he says: "we heard and obeyed" and who gets away and falls in the charm. the following of Allah’ orders and his obedience are the origin of every Moslem’s belief and behavior, then the east and the west are for Allah, and Jerusalem is for Him, and Al-Kaaba is for Him, and the Moslem should become distinct in his belief to go far an extent of the perfect, and his direction should be where Allah orders him. The change of Al-kiblah doesn’t mean a negligence of Jerusalem and Al-Aqsa, they are in the priority of the Islam and three weeks ago, there was the memory of Al-Essra’a and the corroboration of the standing of Al-Aqsa mosque- the blessed. The second of the mosques, and the utmost of Al-Essra’a and the beginning of Al-Meraj. Al-Aqsa, Allah sets it free, got more and more favor when it was the first kiblah for the Moslems, and remained the place where the Moslems’ faces, hearts, prayers and their calls went to for sixteen months till Allah wished the change of Al- kiblah to the Kaaba. The memory is passing and Al-Aqsa mosque is still captured… It is right that a dear part from the Palestinian land had witnessed a defeat of the Zionist occupation soldiers. It has been an insufficient withdrawal because the enemy is still commanding Gaza’s air fields and the sea and its borders; however that withdrawal is not to happen if the sacrifices of the people of Palestine and their repeat tremors (intefada) the last one were of Al-Aqsa mosque followed the soiling of the criminal for the square of the mosque.
The youth is the firewood of Al-Intefada
The big burden that sacrifices has been taken over by the Palestinian youth whose hearts were full of the belief, principles of the jihad, then they combated the extorter occupiers in a courage and a resolution, when they don’t have weapons, they combat using the stones, you can hear their shouts of "Allah Akbar", and their eyes show the insistence to complete the way of the liberation.
Al-Intefada was victorious because its youth advanced in a way of Al-jihad defending the homeland against the occupation. They did their best for their right, justice and peace , by their ancestor youth who were always in the front to defend the houses of the Moslems theoretically and practically , they were in the first terraces of Al-jihad for raising the word of Allah, and they were closely packed in the religious meetings, they seek enlightenment by what they had from sciences , and they received the advice, and they utilize the fruit of their potentials and their experiment , and from the youth were coryphaeus of Al-jihad they flowed for the notification of Allah’s call , and the armed forces moved under their banners , then Allah realized the victory at their hands.
To the students at the beginning of their new year
So we say to the students and they descend from a group of the youth and they begin their new scholastic year: you are the heart of Al-Ommah, from which the water of the life to flows in its body, you have the enthusiasm and the liveliness and the sincerity and the courage, and you are a great endurance if it is used well. And the youth in other words are the back bone of any nation and represent the element of the movement and liveliness. You have the productive energy and the renewable giving, and the nation doesn’t rise without being on the shoulders of its conscious youth with their renewable enthusiasm.
"the more the resolution the more the determinations" then the world wait to see what you are doing and what are going to do when you plunge into the domains of the science to remove unenlightenment, the poverty and backwardness , and to achieve our nation’s antecedence in all domains. You should know you will face obstacles in your effort to achieve that hopefulness, you have to cross these obstacles if you are resolved and sincere, then your renewable enthusiasm in the giving of the goodness angered the enemies of Islam, then they headed for fixing the impediments in your way or changing your destination, that is by getting you far from your religion or by creation an abysmal gap between you and the savants then the youth would lose the right direction, or by the incitation of the government on you .
As we see great signs on your equals, such as the low level in their studding, and the disappearance of the youth activities and their creations, and the absence of their intellectual and cultural contributions, and some of them are not interested in their nation’s issues, and the attempt of the west imitation in all warrants of corruption. We don’t blame the youth alone on this negative phenomena; no doubt that the government is responsible of the big part of it, that is because of the absence of the sound planning for the upbringing of the youth, , and the disappearance of the role of some ministries and the deviation of others which deal with the youth.. Like the ministry of Education, and the ministry of High Education the, and the ministry of youth and the ministry of Culture. All these ministries have never done their best in the saving of the scientific progress means, but we see that they drive the youth to be far from the religion, morals and principles, in order not to be interested in their nation’s issues, and to loss Arab Islamic identity and to remove their personality, beside the interests in superficial and insignificant matters, to be far from the deep good ones.
These problems need the ministries to change their policies basically, and need the glorification of the religion role, morals, science and knowledge.
We remember how our nation became master of the world when it was interested in those warrants, that needs the attention of the educational system in the schools and the universities, and providing them with the modern means of the teaching, and the specification of suitable executives, and needs the scientific care centres to be opened, and to grant the youth the opportunity of the dealings with growing technical scientific development, the youth in their care are like the plant when the producers do their best to grow it, and if it was neglected, its growth would be stumbled. The guardians, the leaders, the savants are responsible for giving a hand to them to direct them towards the road of Islam in accordance with its law.
Do not be affected by the lag of the negligent
We say to the youth: "maybe you will find those who lag, that are not a justification to you, then one of your responsibilities in front of Allah and your societies is to lead the change toward the better, and you are supposed to complete the task which the others don’t do.
Our country needs a lot of efforts in the educational and scientific fields to rise and ascertain its message. So the first factors in the project of Islam are science and learning for the nation to rise, through these factors the rising and mental intellectual progress can be achieved. Here, the welcome was by the science and the students "and say: My Lord! Increase me in knowledge. " (Taha: 114) ?وَقُلْ رَبِّ زِدْنِي عِلْمًا? (طـه: من الآية114).
Our civilization realized the value of the science and the education, and doesn’t stop at the surface and the crusts, and the researchers and the thinkers deepen in the accurate matters, and that is what you should do especially when you have the ways of the scientific research while it was not available before.
As the Islamic civilization aimed at the employment of the science in all life warrants , then the studies were different and the achievements fork , and the centres of the science spread out, and the Moslem students of the knowledge were in front, and Moslem savants were excellent in many fields, and the references of our civilization are still good so that it can rise all over again by the youth’s effort , and that is what we make propaganda for it and we work for it; Till we deserve to be the heredity of the earth which Allah promised his good peoples.. ? "And verity We have written in the Scripture, after the Reminder: My righteous slaves will inherit the earth" (Al-Anbiyaa: 105) ،?وَلَقَدْ كَتَبْنَا فِي الزَّبُورِ مِنْ بَعْدِ الذِّكْرِ أَنَّ الأَرْضَ يَرِثُهَا عِبَادِيَ الصَّالِحُونَ? (الأنبياء: 105) ، and that is by the possession of the heredity requirements from belief and science and strength.
O youth and students show your good direction and the good work to Allah, and show the diligence, the resolution and the perseverance your nation. "And say (unto them): Act! Allah will behold your actions, and (so will) His messenger and the believers, and ye will be brought back to the Knower of the invisible and the visible, and He will tell you what ye used to do." (Al-Touba: 105) ?وَقُلْ اعْمَلُوا فَسَيَرَى اللَّهُ عَمَلَكُمْ وَرَسُولُهُ وَالْمُؤْمِنُونَ وَسَتُرَدُّونَ إِلَى عَالِمِ الْغَيْبِ وَالشَّهَادَةِ فَيُنَبِّئُكُمْ بِمَا كُنتُمْ تَعْمَلُونَ? (التوبة: 105).
