“We have never seen an evil government in this country like the one of today. The government is fully in support of the bloodshed in Nigeria. We are being killed just because we are not Muslims. These evil Fulani jihadists are enjoying the backing of the government to go about killing people, destroying their houses and farmlands, yet when we try to defend ourselves, the government will go about arresting our people. What kind of justice is this?” — Rev. Jacob Kwashi, Anglican bishop, during a funeral for 17 murdered Christians, Morning Star News, August 30, 2021.
“[T]here is an ongoing genocide in Southern Kaduna targeted at the indigenous Christians population…. Not a single church or school is left standing. Not a single herdsman has been apprehended all these years. It is unfortunate that… the western media do not believe that our lives are worth any news.” — Jonathan Asake, a former member of Nigeria’s House of Representatives, The Epoch Times, August 4, 2021.
“It’s tough to tell Nigerian Christians this isn’t a religious conflict since what they see are Fulani fighters clad entirely in black, chanting ‘Allahu Akbar!’ and screaming ‘Death to Christians.'” — Sister Monica Chikwe, Crux, August 4, 20
Today we hear a statement from Imam Karim AbuZaid made on June 15 2021, regarding Palestine and how it is not a political issue but a religious one for all Muslims.
What I want every Muslim to know is Masjid Al-Aqsa is not a Palestinian thing. … Our brothers and sisters in Palestine are the immediate individuals who are dealing with the situation. But no this is a Muslim thing.
In Summer of 2018 in the Salah Udeen Islamic Centre in Toronto run by Imam Ally Hindy – Imam Karim abu Zaid gave a weekend workshop on the book Islamic Guidelines For Individual and Social Reforms by Jamil Zino. Here are experts from the section on Jihad
Jihad is obligatory on every Muslim: in one of two ways, By spending one’s wealth, or offering oneself for fighting… – Every Muslim will be guilty unless he expels the Jews by money or physical fighting… – Example, Call to Islam until all countries embrace it and make it their way of life. If someone makes any obstacle in the way of propagation of Islam, Muslims are allowed by Allah to fight them until Islam becomes the governing authority. Jihad will not stop until the Day of Judgment. – Teach your children the love of justice & revenge. Consequently our youth would know that Palestine should be freed and Jerusalem must be of the Muslims. They have to learn Islam and Jihad as per the Qur’an and that holy fighting for Justice is supported By Allah. MHNBE. Jihad against disbelievers, communists and aggressors from Jewish – Christian Nations can be by spending on jihad or participating in it personally
We learn from senior Colorado Imam Karim Abu Zaid and Imam Jamil Zino (1925 – 2010), who’s books have gained popularity especially in Western countries, that it is a collective, religious, obligation for Muslims to fight for Justice – peace – And world Islamic Rule
