Egypt’s Fight for Human Rights: Sleeping with the Enemy?

Where Are the Shaikhs?

Where, O where are the Shaikhs?

Islam is fighting for its life in Egypt. It is fighting a desperate battle for survival. Even though Islam is never desperate and its life and survival are guaranteed by Allah forever.

In fact, the fight in Egypt right now is for some of the most basic Human Rights for the Egyptian People that the rest of the world takes for granted – such as the right to Life and Liberty and the pursuit of the dream of dignity and national independence and sovereignty in their own land.

Fight for Freedom and Democracy

Anyone and everyone, who is anyone as a Muslim, is with the Ikhwan and Dr. Morsi in this epochal Fight for Freedom and Democracy.

In this fight for Islam, and for the most elementary of Human Rights, for the Egyptian People.

For, at the most fundamental level, that is what Islam is all about: Human Rights – for everyone, everywhere.

Missing in Action

But missing from action at this most critical juncture in the life of Islam and Muslims, and in the history of the world, are some of the prominent Shaikhs in Egypt – among them the Shaikh Ali Gomaa, Grand Mufti of the Land of Egypt – Muftid Diyaar Al-Misriyyah.

One wonders and cries out: Where, O where are the Shaikhs when we need them?

Imam Ahmad Ibn Hanbal

One is forced to ask: Where, O where are those who may call themselves scholars and students of Islam today, and who may claim any kind of affinity with people like Imam Ahmad Ibn Hanbal, the great scholar of Hadith, who fought tyranny and oppression in his day so valiantly and without looking back for one millisecond?

Mu’atasim, the so-called Khalifah of the day, had Imam Ahmad, may God have mercy on him, horsewhipped in public for opposing his will – for refusing to rubberstamp what the King said and for not saying what the King wanted him to say.

Refusing to Rubber-Stamp the King

For not endorsing the King’s position that the Qur’an was a finite and limited document – like all other creations of God – that the Qur’an was a creation and not a timeless and limitless attribute of God.

Imam Ahmad stood his ground and continued to speak truth to the King’s brute power, without one moment’s hesitation. He continued to declare that the Qur’an, as God’s Word, was Forever and Eternal – Qadeem!

Eternal Flame of Divine Truth

This was a flicker from the Eternal Flame of Divine Truth, one of the countless many lit and fanned around the world by Islam, out of which came all other attempts to stand up for Truth and Justice, and for Human Rights in this world, and to fight tyranny and oppression over the minds and bodies of men and women, as Thomas Jefferson was later to frame it in part.

Islam Helps American and French Revolutions

This was the flame that lit America’s fight for freedom from King George’s tyranny, and the Magna Carta against King John’s oppression, and powered the cry of Liberty, Equality and Fraternity during the French Revolution.

It was this unflinching commitment to, and championship of, Truth and Justice – and Human Rights – that threw open the hearts and minds of men and women for Islam around the world.

Human Rights: Secret to Islam’s Success

It is this that made Islam spread like wildfire everywhere. And it is this that is making Islam unstoppable around the world even now.

And it is also because of this that the enemies of basic liberties and Human Rights everywhere feel that the only way they can fight Islam anywhere is through massive lies, cover-ups, fraud, deceit and brute force.

Egyptian Revolution: Fight for Human Rights

And that exactly is what is going on in Egypt right now: A feast of some of the most brazen and bald-faced lies ever invented by man that is let lose against the Ikhwan and their candidate Dr. Morsi.

And that includes some of the most shameless and baseless charges that it was the Ikhwan who freed convicted criminals from jails when the glorious Egyptian Revolution broke out on January 25, 2011, and it was the Ikhwan who killed the peaceful demonstrators on Tahrir Square during the Revolution!

Lies: Main Weapon of Enemies of Human Rights

Lies are the chief weapon in the arsenal of the enemies of Human Rights.

No, the enemies of Human Rights everywhere, they have no shame or remorse or something called conscience.

They operate by one simple rule: They will say and do anything – no matter how false, fabricated, baseless and shameless – so long as they can get away with it.

They are profiled in great detail in the Qur’an. Read the Qur’an and you will know.
