Men will not be able to obey all the orders of Allah in the way shown by the Prophet Muhammad saw and with the intention to please Allah, unless men have the love of Allah in their heart. This is known as having the true iman or faith towards Allah. Men will not be able to have the true iman or faith toward Allah unless men do the work of inviting mankind to good and forbidding mankind from evil after reciting the Great Kalimah. When Muslims are not inviting the non-Muslims to recite the Great Kalimah, it means the Muslims have committed the greatest evil. The greatest evil of the Muslims must be prevented by inviting the Muslims to do the work of inviting the non-Muslims to recite the Great Kalimah and to remind the Muslims about the Great Kalimah and to invite Muslims to do the work of inviting mankind to good and forbidding mankind from evils and to perform the five times daily prayers. It is obligatory (fardu ain) on all Muslim males and females to do the work of inviting mankind to good and forbidding mankind from evils and to perform the five times daily prayers. It is also obligatory on some Muslims males (fardu kifayah)to do the work of inviting the non-Muslims to recite the Great Kalimah and to invite the Muslims to do the work of inviting mankind to good and forbidding mankind from evil and to perform the five times daily prayers with congregation (Jemaah). Both of the orders are obligatory to all Muslims and the obligatory is fardu kifayah and fardu ain. In Islam, it is only these two orders of Allah, which are obligatory to Muslims, and the obligatory is both of fardu kifayah and fardu ain. (more…)

Allah has created us because He wants us to love Him. Allah gives us many orders to be followed by us with the intention only to please Allah until Allah is pleased with us. Allah orders us to love Allah, those who are loved by Allah and to love all the other creations of Allah. Allah has never order us to hate anyone, any race or any religion. Who are the peoples who are loved by Allah? The peoples who are loved by Allah are those who obey all the orders of Allah with the intention only to please Allah until Allah is pleased. How would we know that Allah loves a person? The peoples who are loved by Allah are those who have the quality of humbleness or tawa’dhu. Allah is Great. There is no one who is Great except Allah. A person who thinks that he or she is great is a person who is away from Allah and not loved by Allah. A person who is humble or tawa’dhu will have good characters. A person, through who, good come to other peoples is a good person. A person who always does good to other peoples, even to those who do evils to him or her is a good person. Good or bad comes only from Allah. Allah showers His blessing to the entire mankind through a man whom Allah has chosen to become the mean to spread His blessing to the entire mankind. The persons who are chosen to be the mean to spread the blessing of Allah to the entire mankind are known as the Prophets. Prophet Muhammad is one of the men who is chosen by Allah to become the mean for Allah to shower His blessing to the entire mankind and to the other creations of Allah. Allah has mentioned in the Quran with the approximate meaning; we have not sent you oh Muhammad except as a blessing to the entire mankind. What is mean by the words; a blessing to the entire mankind? The blessing to the entire mankind means is the correct lifestyle of the Prophet Muhammad saw, which when practiced by the entire men, will ensure men to have a life of blessing which is full of happiness in this world and the hereafter.

No countries surrounding Israel are willing to accept her sovereignty as a nation. American and British did not consider the opinions of the surrounding countries when they created the nation of Israel many years ago. Because no countries around the region were willing to accept the birth of Israel, the existence of Israel from the day of its birth is full of miseries and turmoil. British and Americans should take the responsibilities for the mistake they have made by creating Israel without taking the opinions of the Muslims Arabs that live around Israel. United State of American and Great Britain are the two superpowers that created the nation of Israel in the wrong way. Since Israel began in the wrong way, peace and tranquility has never achieved by Israel since its birth as a nation.
As a nation, Israel does not feel secure, as all the nations surrounding her are enemies to Israel. Israel does not feel secured ever since she was born and the feeling of insecurity leads Israel to practice aggression. When a person is not secure, he or she becomes aggressive. Insecurity leads to stress and stress leads to aggression. Israel has become a very aggressive nation because it began with a wrong beginning. It started wrong and forever it can never become right. Israel recent action towards the ship that carries foods, medicines and peace activists to Gaza clearly reveal her aggressiveness. The ship carry only medicines, food and peace activists and not war ammunitions but Israel attacked the ship and killed many peace activists including many from Turkey.
The action of Israel has drawn international criticism and public demonstration against Israel. The big mistake Israel had done in the incident was the killing of many peace activists from Turkey. Although in the past, the relationship between Israel and Turkey was very good but the sad incident has led to the good diplomatic relation enjoyed previously shattered. Although Israel has poor diplomatic relationship with her surrounding Arab Muslim countries but her relationship with Turkey had been very good. Turkey even had military partnership with Israel. Turkish is known to be a very strong and brave race and although Turkish were not Muslims when they conquered the great Muslim empires hundreds of years ago but later on, the Turks embrace Islam and becomes Muslims. Later on, the Muslims Turks conquered Constantinople and spread the Muslim empires towards the west, up to Yugoslavia. Turks known to be a brave and strong race than the Arabs are. Prophet Muhammad s.a.w used to warn the Arabs not to disturb the Turks. The Turks came to Bagdad to do trading and when the Arabs Muslims did injustice to the Turks traders, their King attacked Bagdad and defeated the Muslims. They demolished the Muslim empires and destroyed the civilization, established by the Arabs to ashes.
Because of the recent attack by Israel on the ship, that carries humanitarian aids to Gaza, Turkey join the group of countries that has enmity with Israel. The recent attacks have increased the number of countries that have enmity with Israel. Israel becomes more insecure and isolated and thus becoming more aggressive. In order to make Israel to become less aggressive the whole world particularly the ‘maker’ of Israel, Americans and British have to make Israelites feel more secured. Many Jews live peacefully with the Muslims in all over the world. What is the reason the Jews cannot live peacefully with the Muslims in the Arab world now. Many Jews live in Medinah at the times of Prophet Muhammad s.a.w and they live peacefully with the Muslims. The Jews driven out of Medinah only when the Jews at that time did not comply with the treaty they made with the Prophet Muhammad s.a.w and the Muslims at that time.
Many Muslims believe that Allah forever curses the Jews and because of that, many Muslims hate the Jews. Many Muslims think that all Jews are bad and they are not fit to live and many Muslims think it is an act of worship to curse the Jews. They cursed the Jews because they believe that Allah forever had cursed them. Allah never cursed anyone because of their race, color of skin but Allah curse someone because of their bad actions. The Muslims should not think that all Jews are bad and must be curse. Jews are the same as any other race and among the Jews, there are bad as well as good Jews. We should give values and respect to a person not because of their race but because of their actions.
The actions of the government of Israel to order their soldier to attack the ship on peace and humanitarian missions were wrong. The Jews who do those actions should be curse and brought to justice. Allah and the whole humanity curse, and hate those actions. However, the Jews do this because the Jews think and feel that they are insecure. Israel will forever feel insecure as long as American and the British are not doing anything to bring Israel and all the countries surrounding Israel, to a discussion and meeting table. All the countries that are neighbors to Israel should be call to the meeting. As Muslims, we should be kind to our neighbors. Muslims should not try to drive the Jews out of Israel as Allah has made them to become our neighbors. Allah has made the Jews to live among the Muslims and the Jews should not drive the Muslims out of Israel.
Jews must not regard the Muslims as enemies and the Muslims too must not regard the Jews as enemies. Political people and those who want power and wealth would not like people to live with peace and harmony. When people live in peace and harmony, political people cannot become popular and powerful. Many Jews leaders as well the Arabs are propagating the sentiment of racism. They are spreading the fear that the other side is trying to take our lands and to drive us out of our homes. The fear created by the opportunists is sufficient to make the region to remain forever unstable and turmoil. American and the British are not trying to eliminate the fear that makes both sides to become aggressive. As Israel has more sophisticated weapons, and feel more insecure they become more aggressive than the Arabs do.
Both the Jews and the Arabs can live together in peace and tranquility. A treaty shall be made not only between Israel and Palestine but also with all the countries surrounding Israel. The war between Israel and the Palestinians will continue forever unless the fear that both parties have eliminated. Israel will continue her aggression against Palestinians who are unarmed and fight only using stone and sand. Americans and British are responsible for the aggression done by both sides and they should dismantle the aggression by negotiating a treaty between Israel and all the neighboring countries.

The word Taliban derived from the Arabic word Talaba, which means religious students. Originally, Taliban are religious students who study in the various religious schools in Pakistan and then they turn military and call themselves as Taliban. They obtain their military training in Pakistan. Taliban take over Afghanistan from the Mujahidin. Taliban rule Afghanistan with the Syariat Laws. Whoever committed fornication or adultery are punished under the syariat Laws. Regarded as the sources of evils under Taliban government, women must remain in the houses and not allowed to work or expose to public. Whenever a woman wants to go out of the house, she must cover properly and wear proper veils. Many women lost their jobs during Taliban rules including those women whose husband had died. As a result, many women who lost her husband and her job have to undergo a life of poverty. They were making prayer day and night and asking Almighty Allah to remove Taliban government from Afghanistan. Allah accepted their prayer and in 22 September 2001, Allah used the Americans to remove Taliban government from ruling Afghanistan.
The government that rule Afghanistan now is under the control of Americans. America is not colonizing Afghanistan but whatever Afghanistan wants to do must have the consent of America. When America attacked Afghanistan in September 2001, it took America only seven days to defeat the Taliban. America took over Afghanistan and Taliban disperse all over the country, and some went to the neighboring country of Pakistan. Using guerilla warfare Taliban is attacking Americans in Afghanistan and at the same times, Taliban is attacking the government of Pakistan, which supports America to fight Taliban. In retaliation Taliban try to cause chaos in many large cities of Pakistan such as Lahore and Islamabad by doing suicidal bombing.
In the attack, many people had died and most of them are innocent public. With frequent incident of suicidal bombing Pakistan lately has become the land of blood and tear. Taliban and Pakistanis are both Muslims. Taliban has regarded Pakistan government and the people of Pakistan as their enemies because Pakistan support America to attack Taliban. Now the situation seems to become very ironic that Muslims are killing Muslims. The same situation had happened to Aceh, Indonesia prior to Tsunami whereby Muslims were killing Muslims. Whoever suspected by Aceh Liberation Army to be collaborating with the Government of Indonesia was regarded by them as their enemies. Without mercy and proper investigation, they killed most of these innocent people. When Muslims are killing Muslims, we are inviting the wrath of Allah. When Allah’s anger is with us, He will sent catastrophe to punish us. Allah had sent Tsunami to punish the peoples of Acheh whereby more than hundreds of thousands of people died. Taliban must stop suicidal bombing and killing of innocent Muslims. The innocent Muslims have relatives and parents that are Muslims, they will make prayer to Almighty Allah, and they will ask Allah to punish and eliminate the Taliban.
Taliban must accept defeat and stop suicidal bombing that largely killed innocent Muslims. The more innocent Muslims killed by Taliban the more Allah’s anger is with them. The killing of innocent Muslims will be the means of Taliban destruction. When a Muslims kill another Muslims, both will enter hellfire when both want to kill each other. When a Muslim kill another innocent Muslim that does not have the intention to kill the other Muslims, the one that kill the Muslim will enter hellfire but the Muslim that is killed will enter paradise. Allah prohibit us even disgracing another Muslims what more killing a Muslim. The situation that has happened in Pakistan must attract the attention of the World Islamic leaders. Muslims leaders must come with a solution to stop the Taliban from killing the innocent Muslims. In case we failed to solve the problem, Allah will solve it by sending catastrophe to Taliban and Pakistanis as Allah has sent to the Aceh people of Indonesia.
The war between Taliban and the Government of Pakistan is wasting the energy of the Muslims. The war is between Muslims and it should stop immediately. All Muslims leaders in the whole world must try to persuade Taliban to stop the war. The war brings no good to Taliban or Pakistan and the Muslims at large. The whole world is watching Muslims killing another Muslims. In order to end the war Muslim leaders must invite the leaders of Taliban for discussion. In case, discussion does not work to end the war, Muslims in the whole world should conclude that Taliban is the enemies of Muslims. When another Muslim wants to have peace with another Muslim, we must accept and becomes brothers again. When we reject the offer of peace from our Muslim brothers, we are making Allah’s anger with us.
Allah has made America to attack Afghanistan and able to drive away the Taliban from governing Afghanistan. This happen due to Taliban’s own wrongdoings while governing Afghanistan .When Taliban cannot accept defeat and continue to fight the American in order to gain back Afghanistan it cause problems to Pakistan. America asks Pakistan to help them to fight Taliban as America has help Pakistan in many instances in the past. America has help Pakistan from bankruptcy and Pakistan is indebted to help America. Taliban cannot expect Pakistan not to help America as American has helped Pakistan. The best solution to end the problem in my opinion, Taliban should stop the war that has bring the anger of Allah to Taliban and to go back to religious school to learn Islam. When they have completed their studies, they should spend the rest of their life doing dakwah to non-Muslims and reminding the Muslims to obey Allah and His Prophet.

Suicidal bombing is a new phenomenon in Muslim communities. We have not heard in the past that Muslims are ready to kill themselves because they want to kill their enemies. We have heard about the Japanese soldiers who are ready to commit suicide in order to kill their enemies. Since the Japanese are not Muslims, we can understand why the Japanese commit suicides but we cannot understand why Muslims can commit suicide. Allah prohibits us from committing suicides and whoever commits suicides they will becomes infidel, and they will enter hellfire forever. Without the orders of Allah, we cannot take another person life or his own life. The work of taking life is the work of Allah and if anyone takes his own life without the order of Allah, he or she is taking over the work of Allah and is committing a great wrong. Suicidal bombing is against the order of Allah. Muslims who died because of suicidal bombing is not a martyr as they claimed to be but died as an infidel who will go to the hellfire.
In one battles at the time of Prophet Muhammad s.a.w there is one man who is fighting very vigorously in the battle and one of the Companion of The Prophet Muhammad s.a.w remark to the Prophet that this man is the inhabitants of paradise. On hearing, Prophet remarked that this man is inhabitant of hellfire. The companion who narrated this incident said that when I heard the Prophet s.a.w said that he was the inhabitant of hellfire, I was puzzled and I started to follow that man whenever he went in the battle. The companion of the Prophet said, later on to my amazement I saw the enemy has injured him very badly and since he was not ready to accept the injury, I testify to the truth of the words of Prophet Muhammad s.a.w, I saw him committing suicide. In Islam, whoever commits suicides he has committed a major sin and his place will be in the hellfire. This incident, which happen at the time of the Prophet Muhammad s.a.w clearly support the stand point that those who died as a result of suicidal bombing is not a martyr as they claimed to be but died as an infidel who will go to hellfire. In a recent article in the local newspaper, I have read that Taliban Pakistan has prepared about 3000 people ready to do suicidal bombing in various cities of Pakistan.
Taliban and Al-Qaeda have regarded the Americans and Jews as their enemies and they try to tell the Muslims in the whole world that Americans and Jews are also the enemies of Muslims. Please read my articles on the enemies of Islam for you to understand this point CLICK . Al-Qaeda and Taliban have the opinion that fighting against Americans and Jews is a religious war or Jihad. Whoever died in whatever ways, even suicidal bombing during the war is a martyr or syuhadah. As a martyr or syuhadah, they will enter paradise forever. In my opinion, the war between Americans and Jews on one side and Al-Qaeda and Taliban on the other side is not a religious war or Jihad as Al-Qaeda or Taliban claimed to be. The war resulted, because two parties claim the lands and the wealth are theirs and neither party is willing to relinquish their claim. It is a war to gain material wealth and not the war to gain the pleasure of Allah. Allah give values to iman and good actions and war resulted because the propagation of iman and good action is stop by the enemies is loved by Allah. Whoever died in that war is a martyr and will enter paradise forever. Allah gives no values at all to the worldly material and the war to gain material wealth such as land has no values in the eyes of Allah. Whoever died because of that war is not a martyr and whoever died because of suicidal bombing in that war is an infidels and he or she will never enter paradise.
The war between Americans and Al-Qaeda is not a religious war or Jihad. In order to make you understand more on these issues of war, please read my articles, is war a crime? CLICK. Whoever Muslims who died in that war is not a martyr or syuhadah? Whoever died by committing suicides died as infidel and will enter hellfire forever. Whoever hears and talks about something repeatedly, even though it is wrong, will finally accept it as truth. Actually, this is what happens to those recruited by the Taliban and Al-Qaeda to become suicidal bombing. Those recruited to become suicidal bombing are bombarded by ideas that war against American and Jews is a holy war, dying in the war will make them to become martyr, and they will enter paradise. Because of continuous brain washing, they have regarded the war as a holy war instead of a crime and they are ready to die as martyr even by doing suicidal bombing.

Peace is the outcomes of love. When peoples love each other, there will be peace between them. Love is the outcomes of positive attitudes towards others. When a person has positive attitudes towards other peoples, they will have love between them. Because they have love between them, they have peace. When people have negative attitude towards other people they will have hatred between them. Because they have hatred, they have war between them. All wars begin with negative mental outlook. Negative mental outlook leads to hatred and hatred leads to war. In order to stop war we have to begin with the work of changing the people negative mental outlook to a positive mental outlook. Negative mental outlook is the result of wrong belief. The wars between Israel and Palestinians have gone for more than six decades because of negative mental outlook. Many peace plans were proposed but none of them seems to work. The entire peace plan is working towards the establishment of Israel and Palestinians as separate nations. I think the Jews believe that there should be only Israel and Palestinians live as a citizen of Israel. On the other hands, the Palestinians believe that they should have a separate nation of their own. Wars continue for decades and many dies because of the war.
Both the Jews and Palestinians believe and mental outlook have to be changed. They should believe that all of them are descendent of the same ancestors and that they have the same God. Both Jews and the Muslims believe in one God and both believe that Moses is the Prophets of God. At least on this basis the Jews and the Muslims should be able to love each other and to live cordially between them. The Muslims should regard the Jews as their brothers and sisters who has different believe and not as their enemies. Similarly, the Jews should regard the Muslims as their brothers and sisters who have embraced Islam and not as their enemies. It is unreasonable that we should hates those who have different believe or views from us. We are all different and we are free to chose our own believe. No one can forced us to believe on anything and every one of us is responsible on whatever we believe .It is unreasonable for a Muslims to hates someone because he or she is a Jews and similarly it is unreasonable for a Jews to hates someone because he or she is an Arabs or Muslims. In my opinion, the Israel and Palestinians war that has gone on for more than six decades are not because they are Jews and Muslims but because of their greed for power and wealth that both Jews and Muslims have. Greed for power and wealth are the causes of the war between Israel and Palestine that has lasted this long.
In order to stop the war both sides have to sacrifice their greed. Both the Palestinians and the Jews have to reduce their greed over lands and power to a level acceptable to both of them. When they can reduce their greed over wealth and power then only they can sit down in the same tables to outlines the terms of the peace treaty. When neither the Jews nor the Palestinians are able to reduce their greed then peace is not achievable. In case, the Jews cannot reduce their greed than the Muslims should be able to reduce their greed. As a Muslims, the Palestinians should want peace more than the Jews do. Islam means peace and the Muslims Palestinians should be able to even sacrifice their greed completely in order to achieved peace.
To have peace are more valuable than to have lands without peace. What is the values of lands when compare with the values of being able to live in peace and to practice the orders of Allah. In my opinion, Muslims Palestinians should choose to live with the Jews as brothers and sisters and mingle with them with respect and love. As a Muslims, the Palestinians should love and mingle with the Jews and convey to the Jews the Great Kalimah that Allah has given to the Muslims. We are born Jews and Arabs so that we can know each other. None of us has the choice to be either Jews or Arabs. Allah orders us to live in peace with the Jews although the Jews do not believe in Muhammad s.a.w as Prophets of Allah. Our work as a Muslims is only to convey the Great Kalimah to them and there is no compulsion in religion. As a Muslims, we can only convey the Great Kalimah to the Jews when we can live in peace with them. Without peace, the work of conveying the Great Kalimah to the Jews will not be possible.
Muslims Palestinians should want peace more than the Jews do. With peace, the Muslim can convey the Great Kalimah to the Jews with love and respect and without compulsion. When the Muslims do the work of conveying the Great Kalimah to the Jews their iman will increase, their greed will reduced and they will start to looks towards the Jews with love and sympathy. Both Muslims and the Jews should stop talking over past events that had taken place between the Jews and the Muslims. We have to forget the past, we have to forgive each other, and we have to start a new dimension based on mutual respect and love.

These current issues need serious attention from all the world leaders. As a result of the decision made by President Obama to send additional troop to Afghanistan the world are going to witness increased aggression on the sides of Al-Qaeda and Taliban. The Al-Qaeda and Taliban are going to increased their aggression towards America and in the end America and the American people are going to loose greatly. America can win probably in open warfare but in my opinions, American can never win in guerilla warfare. America and the American people should learn their lessons from the Vietnam War. Did America win the war or American armies finally being force to leave the country and South Vietnam falls into the hands of North Vietnam. The so call great country of America lost the war to the small country like North Vietnam. If America does not learn their lessons, the same thing will happen to the war in Afghanistan. America will have to sacrifice many of their soldiers in the war.Al-Qaeda and Taliban are employing guerilla warfare, and they do not follow rules. These are guerillas and they are not armies, and they do not have any country. They do not abide to any laws and they only want to destroy America and the American people in whatever ways they think possible.
America and the wise American people must think how to solve these problems. These problems arise because of many actions that America takes that does not pleased the people especially the Muslims. America under George Bush attacks Afghanistan and Iraq because America thinks and believes that Osama and the Al-Qaeda groups plans the attack on September 11. Without evidence but based simply on suspicious America attack Afghanistan and Iraq. Wrong decision lead to wrong actions and wrong actions leads to continuous problem to America and American people. The problems that comes to America comes from God because of the wrong decision and action taken by their leaders. America will face problems until they make correct decision and action. Sending extra troop to Afghanistan will certainly increased aggression and increased problems to America. When the American armies attack the Al-Qaeda and Taliban, they also attack the common people because Al-Qaeda and Taliban armies hide in the houses of common people who have sympathy with them. Since all of them are Muslims, they will not help the American armies but rather they will help the Al-Qaeda and Taliban guerillas. America is not fighting only the Al-Qaeda and Taliban but also the Muslims in Afghanistan .In this situation how America can win the war. Muslims in Afghanistan will never help the American armies since they are not Muslim. Moreover, Taliban and Al-Qaeda has painted the war as a holy war. Muslims in Afghanistan will give protection to their fellow Muslim brothers in Al-Qaeda and Taliban and thus when American armies attack they will also have to attack the common people. Because Al-Qaeda and Taliban mingled with the common people and they wear the same dress as the commoner the attacks on the Al-Qaeda and Taliban becomes more difficult. When casualties of the common people increased then the anger of the Muslims towards America also increased. When this happen America has painted the image that they are the enemies of the Muslims and to many Muslims to kill American is a holy war. Because of this, more Muslims are willing to join the Al-Qaeda group and kill themselves in the names of holy war. Wrong decision made by the American leaders to attack Afghanistan and Iraq has increased crimes in the world. Crimes in the world have increased dramatically because of American aggression towards Iraq and Afghanistan.
We have not witness such level of aggression in the world as we have seen today. American starts the aggression by attacking Afghanistan because America thinks Osama did the attack on September 11.Since Osama bin Ladin is hiding in Afghanistan, America attack Afghanistan based on emotion without much investigation. America accused Osama bin Ladin who are the guest to the Government of Afghanistan did the attack on World Trade Centre on September 11. On the day of the attacks all the Jews are not working. Detailed who died on the plane are not revealed and the attacks are full of mysteries. Although it remain only a theory but it has element of truth that the attack is designed by American top war strategists in order to give reasons to American to start aggression against Afghanistan and Iraq. America has long been aiming to destroy the government led by Taliban in Afghanistan and Sadam Hussein in Iraq. The good image of American has been tarnish when America attacks Afghanistan and Iraq. Some Muslims regards Americans as their enemies and to these Muslims to join Al-Qaeda is the best choice in order to kill the Americans. America has painted the image to the world as a country that perpetuates aggressions. American people will constantly live in fear because of wrong decision and action of their leaders.
America will not be able to win the war in Afghanistan and Iraq. Many casualties are on the sides of the America. America is going to waste their money and times and to kill many of their youths by engaging guerilla wars with Al-Qaeda and Taliban. When America increased their armies in Afghanistan, they will still not win the war and times will come to witness the day when the American are forced to get out of Afghanistan. American armies will bring only with them the sad memories of war, the war that arises because of their leader’s wrong decision and action .If Americans want to renew their image then they have to stop the war in Afghanistan and Iraq and pull all their armies out of these countries. Otherwise, Americans will constantly live in fear whether they are in the United States of America or anywhere in the world.

War is a crime. War lead to devastation and miseries. War lead to hatred and criminal acts. Because of war, women are molested and children are made orphans and many children are born without clear lineage. War is not the way to solve problems. Men should resort to other ways other than war to solve their problems. When two countries have misunderstanding about their borders, they should not resolve the problems by having wars between them. Such problems should be brought to the International Court of Justice and whatever decided by the court should be accepted by both nations as final. When the Muslims in southern Thailand and Philippines claimed a separate country, the International Court of Justice should resolve the issues. Both the governments of Thailand and Philippines and the Muslims of their respective countries should put their views regarding the matter. Whatever decided by the court should be accepted by both sides and the wars that has been going on for so many years should stop immediately.
Muslims in southern Thailand and Philippines should not go to war only because the Muslims want to have a country of their own. Why we need a country of only Muslims. We should be able to live cordially with the non-Muslims and invited the non-Muslims to enter Islam. What has happen to the Muslims in India who has moved away from India to establish the predominantly Muslim country of Pakistan and Bangladesh? Are the problems of the Muslims in the subcontinent solved .Although the Muslims have their own country but they remain poor and illiterate .The creation of Muslim countries of Pakistan and Bangladesh does not solve the Muslim problems .Allah has ordered the Muslims to live with the non-Muslim cordially and while living with them we should invite them to accept Islam. What are the reasons that the Muslims in Thailand and Philippines want a country of their own? Are they not allowed to practice their religion and do the work of dakwah? Would it not be better for the Muslims to remain in Thailand and Philippines and to do the work of dakwah to the non-Muslims?
Allah would make the Muslims supreme and honored when the Muslims obeyed the orders of Allah. The first order of Allah to the Muslims is to do the work of dakwah. Dakwah means to convey the great words to the non-Muslim and the second order of Allah is to perform five times daily solat. Allah has sent Prophet Muhammad s.a.w and the Muslims as a blessing for the entire humanity. Allah has ordered Prophet Muhammad s.a.w and the Muslims to invite the non-Muslims to accept Islam and to recite the great words, I bear witness there is no God except Allah and Muhammad is the Prophet of Allah. Now the work of dakwah is dead. Muslims have stopped doing the work of dakwah. Muslims do not do the work of dakwah as they used to do. When the Muslims disobeyed Allah then Allah is not pleased with the Muslims and problems come
In order to solve the problems of the Muslims, the Muslims must obey Allah. The problems come because of disobedience and it would be solved only when the Muslims obeyed Allah. When the Muslims try to solve the problems by waging war against the non-Muslims then the problems increased .When the Muslims wage war against the non Muslims because they do not grant our claimed of having our own country then the Muslims has disobeyed Allah .Allah does not allow us to go to war with the non-Muslim only because they do not agree with our demand to have a country of our own. Whether we have a country of our own or not is not important to Allah. What is important to Allah is we obey Allah at all times and circumstances. When we obey Allah, Allah is pleased and when we disobey Allah, Allah is displeased.
When Muslims wage war against the non-Muslim because they do not want to agree to our demand to have a country of our own then the Muslim has disobeyed Allah. Allah does not allow us to wage war against the non-Muslim on reasons of material things. When we disobeyed Allah, we certainly will not get the help of Allah. Allah will make us lose the war and at the same time, many Muslims children and women will die and injured because of the war. Allah will make us tired of the war and yet the land still does not belong to the Muslims. The war between the government of bothThailand and Philippine and the Muslims have gone for so many years and until now nothing has been resolved. War is a crime. The war has caused untold suffering to so many people. The war does not make Allah pleased and the war is not jihad. War against the non-Muslim because of power, land and wealth is not jihad. Muslims should only go to war when the rulers of the country stopped the work of propagating Islam or the great words. In Islam, war is like tayamum .Tayamum is done when there is no water available for ablution .When the work of dakwah is stopped then only war is necessary. When Muslims wage war against the non-Muslims on reasons other than to propagate the great words then the Muslims have disobeyed Allah. Allah prohibits Muslims to engage in wars that arise because of materials and power. Muslims are sent in this world only for the propagating the great words to the non-Muslims and to invite them to enter Islam. Muslims are sent in this world for the benefits of mankind and not to cause miseries and suffering to the peoples.

The war between Palestine and the Israel has lasted more than six decades. Since the creation of the state of Israel the war continues and thousands of people died due to the war. The peoples particularly the Palestinians have undergone untold suffering due to the war. Many attempts have been made to create peace between Palestinian and Israel and The United State of America has always been the peace mediator between them. None of the peace treaty created by The United State of America since six decades ago has reached any success. All the peace treaties developed by The United State of America had reached the state of failure. One after the other of the American President has attempted to make peace between Palestine and the Israel but all attempts so far has not bear any fruit.
What causes the war between the Palestine and the Israel? Once we know the causes then we know how to deal with the issue. Wars are due to rivalry between two nations the Palestine and Israel about the lands that the Israel claimed to be their lands since thousands of years. Historically the land belongs to the Israelites. The Israelite used to live in this land for thousands of years before they were driven away and forced to live as fugitives in other parts of the world. After World War Two the Israelites return to occupy the lands that their forefathers used to live and call the land by the name Israel. When the Israelites were driven away from their lands, the lands are occupied by the Arabs who are predominantly Muslims and they call the lands by the name Palestine. The Arabs also have lived in the land for a very long times and has regarded the lands as their original homeland. None of the two nations want to relinquish their right over the lands. Both claimed that the land belong to them. Although the Arabs are willing to recognize the right of the Israelites to occupy some part of the lands but Israel on the other hand is not even willing to give any inch of the lands to the Arabs. The Israel wants the whole lands belong to them and they are not willing to relinquish even the lands that they have occupied from the Palestinians. The Israel wants the whole lands to them and the Arabs to live only as a citizen of Israel.Israel does not want to recognize Palestine as a sovereign nation.
As long as both nations are not willing to come to terms the problems will remains the same. The Israel is not willing to come to any terms proposed and agreed by the Palestinians. The Jews are the main citizen of Israel and they believe that they are the children of God while others are not. As the children of God the Jews believe that they have the most right to remain in the land where the city of Jerusalem lies. Although Jerusalem is also the sacred city of the Muslims yet Jerusalem is the only sacred city of the Jews. The Jews have only Israel as their homeland while the Arabs have almost the whole Arab Peninsula as their lands. The Jews find many reasons to remain steadfast with their claim that Israel is the land of the Jews. The proposed solution of having two sovereign nations Israel and Palestine are not acceptable to Israel.
The Jews wants the whole land to become Israel or otherwise the problem would never be solved. Thousands of peoples including children died or injured due to the war. Since the Jews are better equipped militarily, the catastrophe is mainly on the sides of the Muslim Arabs. The war has become massacre of human being and it has been going on for more than six decades and it should be stop immediately. As a Muslim we do not like war. War is a crime unless it is done because of the order of Allah and to please Allah. Allah ordered us to wage war only when the work of propagating the great words has been stops by the rulers of the country. Muslims only engage in war when the rulers of the country refused both the offer to accept Islam as his religion and to pay tax to the Muslims. When the work of dakwah is stop by the rulers of any country then the choice that is available to the Muslims at that time is to wage war against the ruler the country. When Muslims goes to war only because of the order of Allah and to please Allah, then Allah’s help is with the Muslims and Allah will make the Muslims supreme.
Muslims should not go to war for no other reasons other than to obey Allah and to please Allah. Muslims should not go to war for acquiring lands and wealth .Allah gives no values to lands and wealth and Allah has not ordered us to go to war for acquiring lands and wealth. The Muslims should stop the war with Israel as it is against the order of Allah. Allah is not pleased with the war and Allah is not going to help us to wins the war. The longer the war continues the more Muslims will die or get injured unnecessarily. We only go to war because it is an order of Allah and to please Allah. The Muslims should give up their claimed of the lands and make Palestine to become part of Israel. If Muslims are willing to do this then the war that has gone for so many years will stop immediately. The whole world will be happy with the news that both the Jews and the Muslims have come to good term and have become friendly. Muslims should be friendly with the Jews and it is the work of every Muslims to invite the Jews to recite the great words, meaning I bear witness that there is no God except Allah and Muhammad is the Prophet of Allah. The Jews are also the family of Allah and should be invited to become Muslims. When the Jews become Muslim then the Jews becomes our brothers and Israel becomes a Muslim country. In case the Jews refused to accept Islam Allah will make the Muslim to be above them.
