By Abu Sa’eed Al-Britani (From the video “Message Of A Mujahid”)
In this article I will discuss the lack of Al-Walaa Wal-Baraa Jabhat An-Nusrah had. As I explained in part one of this series, Jabhat An-Nusrah had a very hypocritical approach when it came to the fight between Dawlah and FSA. On the one side there was a group of pious brothers fighting for the return of the Shariah and on the other side there was a group of evil doers, smokers and alcoholics who were fighting for democracy.
Anyone with the slightest amount of knowledge will say this fight is anything but fitnah. It’s a fight of haqq vs. batil. However Jabhat An-Nusrah showed their hypocrisy when they stayed out of this fight.
Muhajireen Sisters In The Hands Of FSA. The Unbiased Facts:
Another aspect of this which I would like to highlight is their approach in dealing with the sisters who were with Dawlah. It is well known that FSA were not only killing the brothers who were with Dawlah, but were also killing the sisters! Yes, the ‘mujahideen’ of FSA (as Jabhat An-Nusrah like to call them) were also attacking the wives and daughters of the brothers from Dawlah.
There have been countless incidents which have come to surface after the sahawat. I have personally heard of many incidents where FSA were killing our sisters. One is invited to read “Days Of Sahawaat, Episode 2” where Abu Saa’d Al-Sudani also reports an incident of this nature. There were cases where sisters were fighting back with guns, grenades and other cases where sisters got captured, raped, and also are still, until this day, imprisoned by FSA. About six months ago a large scale mission was underway in Halab to capture this prison where our sisters were held by FSA.
It’s a well-known fact, which only an arrogant person will deny. Sisters got killed and also killed many FSA in the process. Some sisters even had explosive belts which they used to kill FSA soldiers who were firing upon them and surrounding them.
Jabhat An-Nusrah’s Approach:
Anyone with an ounce of Iman and manhood in him will feel a sense of anger burning inside of him. One would expect Jabhat An-Nusrah to at least fight off FSA when they attacked the sisters, but no. Nothing was done and this just showed their lack of Al-Walaa Wal-Baraa which they possessed.
How do they think? How do they judge? If my sister is being killed, raped, imprisoned, I would defend her, but if the sister of a brother from Dawlah is being killed, raped, imprisoned etc. then nothing is done? This shows nothing but a lack of Al-Walaa Wal-Baraa stemming from a diseased heart. How can they stay silent and do nothing while this is going on? And furthermore, as I mentioned above, the imprisoned sisters were held by FSA for such a long time, and during this time Jabhat An-Nusrah was still siding with them to fight us!
Where is the Al-Walaa Wal-Baraa? Where is the gheerah for our sisters? Did we not come Sham to defend the weak and oppressed? Which man can ever stand by and do nothing when a Muhajirah is being attacked?! If any sister is raped or killed by any man, we would go and fight to defend her without question. Only a coward or a Munaafiq stays back and does nothing. How black have the hearts of some people come that they do nothing.
A letter was released by one of the sisters held in the FSA prison about 6 or 7 months ago where she said how 6 FSA men would all rape her one after the other! This is your sister. Your sister who left her homeland to go live in Sham. And here we have FSA gang raping her in prison! And this was going on while Jabhat An-Nusrah and FSA were united in their fight against us.
Jabhat An-Nusrah showed their true colors and their lack of Al-Walaa Wal-Baraa was manifested for all to see. I was part of the attacks which we done about 7 months ago in our operation to release these sisters, and we managed to push FSA back about 30km within a few days. And what was Jabhat An-Nusrah doing? They had easy access inside FSA territory, I know this as in those days FSA were north-west of our ribat point and Jabhat An-Nusrah was south-west, and their ribat points were about 1 km away from each other and many times they used to attack us simultaneously, not to mention how they used to freely go to each other’s towns and their open peace agreements.
I can say much to prove this, but my main point I wish to stress is how Jabhat An-Nusrah done nothing for these sisters. All they had to do was to go to FSA and negotiate on our behalf, or at least reason with them, or even better, inform us of the exact location of this prison and let us do the fighting! It would have earned them huge rewards in the hereafter and prevented a lot of backlash on them.
Everyone wants to talk about (and magnify) when Dawlah kills someone from FSA or Jabhat An-Nusrah (who, by the way, were unknown before we killed them, yet all of a sudden became ‘the respected’ so and so!), yet no one is talking about the cowardly attacks by FSA on our sisters! Is the life of a man more precious than the life of a sister? So why the silence when a sister from Dawlah is murdered and the cries of agony when someone from their side is killed? It’s like they have an open license to kill us, and when we retaliate we are called Khawarij!
Where are the men of reasoning? Where are the men of intellect? Where are the men of gheerah? Where are the men who possess Al-Walaa Wal-Baraa?
If this is not hypocrisy and partisanship then what is? If this is not a sign of a lack of Al-Walaa Wal-Baraa then what is? If FSA are not cowards then who are? If Jabhat An-Nusrah are not silent devils then who are?
O Jabhat An-Nusrah, you have no Al-Walaa Wal-Baraa, and I challenge anyone to bring me evidence from the actions of the Salaf which prove that the stance of Jabhat An-Nusrah was in accordance with the Quran and Sunnah.
In my next article I will discuss the sixth reason for me leaving Jabhat An-Nusrah, that being their cowardice.
