ইসলাম কি চুরি-বাটপাড়ির ধর্ম?


পশ্চিমাদের তথা অবিশ্বাসীদের অর্থ হাতিয়ে নেয়া ইসলামী মতে জায়েয। এবং তার একটি অংশ জিহাদের কাজে ব্যয় করা যাবে। কী চমৎকার বিধান, তাই না? অবশ্য ইসলামের লুটতরাজপ্রবণ নবীই এই পথ দেখিয়ে গেছেন।

ইয়েমেনী ইসলামবাজ Shaykh Anwar al-Awlaki লিখছেন The Ruling on Dispossessing the Disbelievers wealth in Dar al-Harb নামের একটি নিবন্ধে। নির্লজ্জ ইতরামির মাত্রা কতোদূর বিস্তৃত ও ব্যাপৃত, লেখাটি থেকে উদ্ধৃত কিয়দংশ না পড়লে অনুমানও করতে পারবেন না। অন্তত বোল্ড করা অংশগুলো পড়ে দেখুন:

All of our scholars agree on the permissibility of taking away the wealth of the disbelievers in dār al-ĥarb whether by means of force or by means of theft or deception.
Our scholars differ on how wealth taken by means of theft and deception should be divided. The majority believes it is ghanīmah. So one-fifth of it should be paid to the Amir to be spent on jihad. Alternatively, the Hanafi’s consider it to be a source of income that belongs in its entirety to the ones who seized it. Finally, there is a minority opinion that it is fai' and therefore should be distributed according to the discretion of the Amir. 


Implications on our present day work: Every Muslim who lives in dār al-ĥarb should avoid paying any of his wealth to the disbelievers whether it be in the form of taxes, duties, or fines. If a Muslim is allowed to deceive the disbelievers to appropriate their wealth then he is also allowed to deceive them to avoid paying them his wealth.

Even though it is allowed to seize the property of individuals in dār al-ĥarb, we suggest that Muslims avoid targeting citizens of countries where the public opinion is supportive of some of the Muslim causes. We therefore suggest that the following should be targeted:
Government owned property
Banks
Global corporations
Wealth belonging to disbelievers with known animosity towards Muslims

In the case of the United States, both the government and private citizens should be targeted. America and Americans are the Imam’s of kufr in this day and age. The American people who vote for war mongering governments are intent on no good. Anyone who inflicts harm on them in any form is doing a favor to the ummah.

Careful consideration should be given to the risk vs. Benefit (i.e., maslaĥa) of any specific operation. Because of the very negative implications of an operation that is exposed, it is important that the benefits outweigh the risks.

Dear brothers: Jihad heavily relies on money. In Qur’an, the physical jihad is associated with jihad with one's wealth in eight verses. In every verse but one, jihad with wealth preceded the physical jihad. That is because without wealth there can be no jihad. Our enemies have realized that. Therefore they are "following the money trail" and are trying to dry up all the sources of funding "terrorism".

Our jihad cannot depend wholly on donations made by Muslims. The Messenger of Allah (SAW) sent many armies for the sole purpose of raiding caravans of the disbelievers. Not only was jihad financed by booty but also throughout our early history them Islamic treasury itself was mostly dependent on income generated from jihad. A tax called kharaj was placed on land opened by Muslims, enslaved POWs would be sold, and the people of the book paid jizyah. All of these sources were generated through jihad. Zakah and Şadaqah represented only a small portion of the income of the Muslim government.
