After I have discussed the Story of Hezbollah earlier, I want to catch the eyes of readers over some issues puzzling Muslims contemplating on the recent incidents.
Some people may agree with me, while others may disagree. However, I address them all that on handling an issue, we should set aside our personal inclinations and to set it to reason. Also, if we want to analyze an issue perfectly, we should closely examine its roots and sources and to review history in past and recent over this issue. This is to interlink facts together and examine deeply the obscure points and study the goals of every party, his background and dogmas. Accordingly, this will change many of views we thought right for long time to the extent that the one may support an opinion he refused before and vice versa.
First: establishing a Shiete state in lebanon is very possible, rather it may be imminent. This is because the potentials of Hezbollah are greater than that of a party or sect, ratehr, it is of a whole state.
Over and above, syria and Iran give large support to establishing shiete state advocates them. This shiete state includes south of Lebanon along with area of Beqa` located in East-North of Lebanon. Such state may extend to north Lebanon, the Sunni area and will dominate the western and southern areas of Beruit. For areas christians dominate, it is debatable. It is not regarded as unlikely or improbable for Hezbollah to approve christian and shiete entitites on the Lebanon lands.
To exemplify, before one thousand year, Isma`ili shietes proposed to the crusades on conquering Great Syria to distribute the lands of Sunnis between both of them that Syria and Lebanon be given to the crusades, wile Palestine and Jordan be given to Shietes. Yet, the crusades refused the proposal as they wanted the whole Great Syria in their possession. Establishing shiete state in lebanon is not easy to Sunnis the matter demonstrated by the story of Sunnis in Iran and Iraq and the attitudes of Amal Movement and that of Hezbollah to Sunnis in lebanon and also the history of Buhi, Hamadanyah, `Ubaydyah (falsely known as fatimyah) and Safawyah states.
when closely examining this history, it will be obvious that establishing sheite state implies holding the sway over Sunnis in the first place as it is solely based on creed as facts demonstrateed.
Second: the conflict between Hezbollah and the Jews is based on inetrests but not creed that Jews occupied west Lebanon on 1982 the place of the anicipated shiete state, but the shiete party showed no oposition. The fact is that the stance of sheite on Jews is justified by kinowing that the tenet of Shiete is false as they claim the infallability to their Imams and their superiority over the Messengers of Allah. What good does this tenet make?!
Let's suppose that Sheites were centered at the north area of Lebanon and Sunnis were in the south, is it believable for Shietes to fights to rescue the area where the Sunnis dwell! This is definetely impossible. On contrary, there might be nutual agreement between Sheites and Jews to divide the Lebanon lands mutually. This is not groundless view, however; Shietes dwell in Lebanon for tens of years and it never happened to them to fight Jews in palestine though they declare in their literary productions that Palestine is occupied by zionists.
Dr. Mustafa As-Siba`i, the observer of Muslim Brotherhood in Syria during 1948 war, tried to dra Sunnis and shietes closer and to incite sheietes to support Sunnis to free palestien, but sheites refused. The trials of Siba`I failes and he got frustrated and compiled his book "Sunnah of the prophet and its standing in the Islamic Legislation" wherein he stressed that getting sheites and Sunnis closer is impossible because shietes view it a matter of conversion in creed not to meet on common ground.
When war of 1067 was launched, sheites adjacent to the north area of Palestine did no thing, Mousa As-Sadr announced his eminent slogan on March 1973 "Weapon is the ornament of men"; yet, when 1973 war broke out afetr his statement with only six months, not even one sheite declared war against Jews in Palestine.
For many monitoring the late war in Gaza on 2009, we found only statements from shietes and not only one messile was fired which would distract Jewa from the horrible bombardment.
Therfore, zionists are sure that the dangerousness of shietes is limited to its lands that they and Iran have no aspirations to Palestine at the current stage.
As well, america is quite certain that statements realeased by Iran against it are not real, however; it is a kind of media propaganda to capture the feelings of Muslims. To exemplify, the sheite project in Iraq is conducted mainly by America. In fact, America does not refuse establishing large sheite state includes Iran, Iraq, syria and Lebanon as it will achieve balance of powers in the Muslim states and will confront the Sunni growing party sweeping in most Mulism states, especially, Egypt, Jordan and Saudi Arabia, such states America exerts its efforts to weaken them politically, militarily or economically.
Victory and the soudness of creed
Third: victory does not represent the soundness of creed and the fierce fighting does not represent sincerity. To illustrate, too many victorious were Mubtadi` (one who introduces innovations in religion) that Shiete Qarmatians were empowered for one hundred years or more though they killed pilgrims, rooted away the black stone and conducted corruption in land. Also, Romans, Persians, Tattars, the English and Americans were empowered though their creed is false. Tyrant Muslim rulers were empowered though they were deviated from the right path of Allah and they ruled their peoples for tens of years.
Victory and empoering to lands does not necessarily mean the soundness of the creed. Thus, Muslims should examine verbs and words and see how they ae in persuance to the Quran and Sunna. Too many fought bravely and remaint firm as heroes and finally dwelled in the Hellfire as his intention was not solely to Allah.
To exemplify, the man in the era of the prophet Muhammad who fought very bravely and killed lots of the polytheists and finally was killed. The companions of the prophet Muhammad thouht he is the greatest reward among them. By then, the prophet Muhammad told them he is in the Hellfire. At that moment, one of the companions proceeded to him to examine his matter, and he was at the agony of death. He addressed the companion saying: my fighting was zealotry to my people. His fighting was not for the cause of Allah, ratehr it was for personal interests and his steadfastness was to false principle.
I do not calim that I know the intentions of Hezbollah as intentions are to Allah, however; I discuss their made-public creed and the open innovation. Regarding this, you may read the article "Shia's Dominance" which relates dominance of Shiite, however; it was not victory of principles, rather; deviation from the straight path of Allah.
The stance of Sunnis
Fourth: the fact that conflict between Hezbollah and zionists is based on inetrests does not justiy for Muslims to adopt no stance on this conflict. Accordingly, I disagree with many of my masters in knowledge and Da`wah who believe to let matters without intervention as both parties went astray. For me, I believe that Muslims should adopt positive stance as they can distinguish evil from good and this is a war between zionists who actually occupy the lands of Palestine and Hezbollah who resides in a land partially occpied by zionists. Therefore, weakening zionists is a goal intrinsically where the zionist assault is plain and freeing the Lebanese land from zionists is a prerequisite, then Muslims are to manage their affairs in a way maintains their rights mot to get lost between Jews and Hezbollah.
I have greately regarded the stance of Sunnis in Lebanon on 1997 when they joined in large numbers to the Lebanese groups which forced Jews out of Lebanon. Though leadership was to Hezbollah which afterwards renounced their efforts, but Muslims should consider matters from sound view. The prophet Muhammad supported a polytheist man to regain his right from Abi-Jahl and the prophet has not abstained from that based on the fact that the polytheist will seek nearer to his idols through this regained property. The prophet supported him in that incident and at another incident he called him to Islam.
Muslims are not puzzled as they know the dangerousness of Hezbollah over his shiete project in the region, however; at the same time, we realize the dangerousness of the zionist project in the same zone.
Fifth: Hassan Nasrallah is a charismatic that he can easily influence his followers, lead masses and incite emotions. He is excellent politician, very cunning and quick-witted. I do not find it default to be dazed by him politically or administratively or his way in oration or his excellence in the political balances. I do not find all these things faults if Muslims felt it, rather there is no objection to them if they copy him in some matters.
On contrary, we should not be dazed at him a Muslim leader conducting the prescribed Jihad as leader observing jihad should be characterized by the sound creed, sound worship, observation to the sunnah of the prophet and contemplation in the Quranic verses. But, all these things are not met by Hassan Nasrallah.
The creed of Hassan Nasrallah
He adopts the creed of the Twelve Imāms that is he believes that the companions entirely encroached the right of `Ali ibn Abi-talib (May Allah be pleased with him) in caliphate and entrusted it to Abu-Bakr, `Umar and `Uthman (May Allah be pleased with them all). Also, Hassan Nasrallah believes that the prophet Muhammad appointed by name their twelve Imams who are infallible. Also, he believes that the twelfth Imam entered the tunnel wherein he resides alive till now and will return one day. He believes that Taqiyyah (concealing or disguising corrupt beliefs, feelings, opinions, and/or strategies to save oneself from punishment) forms 9/10 of religion.
Hassan Nasrallah believes that Sunnis declare themselves the enemy of Ahl-ul-Bayt/Al-ul-Bayt (members of the Prophet's extended Muslim family), though Sunnis revert Ahl-ul-Bayt more than Shiites do.
Hassan Nasrallah believes that it is a due right to their prominent Imams to take possession of one fifth of the income of Shiites. He deems Mut`ah marriage (temporary marriage for a stipulated period) lawful, namely he legalizes it to Shiite to propose to his girlfriend or to any girl to marry her for certain time seeking his sexual desire and then divorces her and so on.
Hassan Nasrallah believes in the Imamate of the jurisprudent, thus he considers it forbidden to disagree with Ali Khamenei, the leader of the Iranian revolution, at any issue.
All these things I have mentioned represent the essence of Hassan Nasrallah's tenet. It is insignificant to claim that he never publicly heard cursing the companions of the prophet or defaming the mothers of the believers as it is necessary to hear him doing that to demonstrate it as it is a prerequisite to the creed of the Twelve Imāms.
The one may not hear his Muslim neighbor pronouncing the testification of monotheism, but it is certain he pronounces it as he is a prerequisite for Muslims. Likewise, the one believing in the Twelve Imāms is for certain professing all things I mentioned; otherwise he would be a follower to another doctrine.
If Hassan Nasrallah revers the companions f the prophet Muhammad, he can not deny the basic tenet for the Twelve Imams or the imamate `Ali, Al-hassan, Al-Hussein (May Allah be pleased with them) or other Imams.
A person accepts these tenets would not be dazzled at or to deem it full ideal for the Muslim leader, however; I may copy him in one aspect as I do towards others. This is not because he is Islamist, but as being a man having special potentials and talents.
The history of Muslims witnessed on occupation of Palestine and Great Syria by the Crusades at the time of the shiete`Ubaydyah state was ruling Egypt, yet, Muslims sought not an example from the chiefs of the shiete`Ubaydyah state that was very notable in politics, management and fighting arts. However; Muslims sought their own example that is `Emad Ed-Din Zenki, Nour Ed-Din Mahmoud and Salah Ed-Din Ayubi.
Indeed, at the present, we should make use of that.
Where a Sunni project vies with and excels the shiete one which is outstanding in Iraq, Iran and Lebanon?!
I appeal to our lot Muslim rulers to take up a Sunni project that observes Quran, Sunnah and the righteous ancestors' teachings and defends the rights of Muslims worldwide and supports Sunnis oppressed in Iran, Iraq, Lebanon and Syria and courageously and fiercely defies the colonial and Zionist projects spread in the Muslim lands.
If there no one Muslim leader assumes this project, Muslims nations should at that moment flee to Allah's course. This is because it is granted that loss of such Muslim leader is a result of the whole Muslim nation deviation from the path of Allah. The more righteous people are, the more righteous their leader is. Allah does not wrong any body even not a whit.
O Muslims! Join to Allah's course, Allah will assist you and repent to Him, He (SWT) will accept your repentance and guide you to His straight path.
