The End - 2000 to 2009

The Hypocrisy of Those who Support Nidal Hasan

It is shocking to see Muslims praising and calling Nidal Hasan a hero. According to to their own leaders and teachers, Nidal Hasan is a kafir. Anyone who joins the US military is no longer a Muslim. In fact Nidal Hasan is a murtad. Now all of a sudden he is a mujahid in prison. He is a hero. He is worthy of being praised.

Apparently, to these Muslims, you do not recite the shahada to be a Muslim. Apparently, to become a Muslim is to do something which they approve of. Now common sense tells me this just doesn’t make sense, but seriously, can anyone tell me how do Muslims think like this?

I do have a rational explanation. They work for the government to attract innocent (and probably stupid) Muslims into a trap which will then lead to a 2 year undercover operation to finally arrest a real Muslim in order to show the public they are keeping America safe from terrorists. Yay! Thanks government for keeping us safe by creating terrorists!

Serious advice to those in power who may read this: war means casualties. No war means no casualties. It’s very simple.

      As’salamu Alaikum

      Great post ahkee. I wondered myself why Dr. Nidal Hasan was (1) in the US military as a Muslim, and (2) Why was there a sudden stream of consciousness now, about what is being done daily to our sisters and brothers around the world?

      I watched the news and listened to the some “brothers” outside a NY Masjid praising Nidal Hasan for his actions. This is not Islam…no where in the Qur’an, does it advise us to threaten non-believers. Islam does not force anyone to take the Shahada.

      But beyond the negative spotlight that has been placed on Islam this past week. There are millions and millions of strong and active Muslims that adhere to the principles of the Sunnah and Quran.

      I have been a Muslima for for less than three years. Alhamdulillah it is my opinion, the best things we can do as Muslims, is to educate ourselves about our religion.

      Jazak Allah Khairan

      “the best things we can do as Muslims, is to educate ourselves about our religion.”
      This should be a proverb, but you need to add that after a good education of ourselves about our religion and other stuff we need to do something smart about it, not just get educated.

      Well, Nidal was in the military from before 9/11 i.e. before the US was actively fighting Muslims, and also it’s clear that he has been trying to get out. And finally he was a psychologist, not a fighter (though that alone doesn’t justify it). My point is that there isn’t a contradiction between saying that it’s kufr to join an anti-Muslim military, and saying this guy was a hero. So I wouldn’t assume that those people are hypocrites if they maintain both beliefs, whether they’re right or not. Honestly I think most people are happy with the end result (i.e. that there are 13~ less people fighting/killing Muslims), but the fact that the killer just so happened to be a Muslim is carrying them into extremes.

      For the record, I do NOT think he was a hero, and I honestly believe that a bunch of factors led him to burst out in rage. And I don’t see him as a “mujahid” either. looool

      Hypocrisy of praising Nidal Hasan…

      Muhajideen Ryder on the hypocrisy of the people who praise Nidal Hasan now when they would, before his massacre, have called him an infidel:

      Bro, he had military training. The psychologists of the Military are to prepare soldiers for war and make them stronger. Before 9/11 if a Muslim joined the military they would have been called a kafir / murtad. I have never heard of difference of opinion until now. What about a Doctor saving the US military’s men in hospitals? To them he wouldn’t be a kafir? It’s funny how many of them change their aqida to support anything that they like.

      BismillahirRahmanirRahim
      Salamu’alaykum,

      Whats really strange is those who supported Anwar Awlaki, linked to Nidal Hasan and one of the ‘hyprocites’ that MR is ‘calling out’.

      Those who continue to propagate his name as being legitimate because he had good stuff ‘in the past’. Thereby creating a bridge for Muslims to find him and his extreme views.

      Is calling out hypocrites and then performing hypocrisy any better?

      Awlakis past stuff was flawed if it led to this result. His past stuff never, for example, mentions how the Prophet (S) never killed anyone out of his mercy, even in battle.

    8. al-suyuufi November 12th, 2009 at 12:48 pm

      Yursil, um it was actually mentioned that the Prophet saws is known to have killed at least one guy in battle. There’s a whole story behind it…

    9. al-suyuufi November 12th, 2009 at 12:51 pm

      also MR I wouldn’t say that those guys make sweeping takfir, since you said: “Anyone who joins the US military is no longer a Muslim.”

      it is well known that seeing somebody commit an act of kufr is not enough to make takfir, since other aspects such as knowledge of the kufr, sanity, adulthood, etc etc etc are pre-conditions to this. Don’t generalize, akhi

      I’m not generalizing. I’m only talking about the significant minority of those who are part of and/or endorse the theology and fiqh of groups such as Al-Qaeda and other similar ones.

    11. Arif November 12th, 2009 at 3:43 pm

      I wouldn’t say no war, no casualties, because we are still seeing so many slayings in the national front that have no connection to the war. It’s more like “Hey, people in power, implement the Shari’ah and there will be justice and no casualties”

    12. Al-Murabit November 12th, 2009 at 4:43 pm

      It’s important in circumstances like this to understand that Muslims living in America are obligated Islamically to obey the laws of the land so long as it does not go against the laws of Islam (for example, if there was a law saying we had to drink alcohol or worship idols, we couldn’t follow it). What Hassan did was wrong because it broke the above principle. On the other hand, it is a well-known hadith that if two Muslims raise their swords against one another, they are both going to jehennam. Nidal did not have to do what he did to escape his situation. Nidal could have chosen to be a conscientious objector. Even going Awol would have been a better option. Recent news coverage seeems to suggest that Nidal was mentally ill.

      i could swear that al-suyuufi is the twisted skitzo other half of MR (no offense, because i actually like your work), or just some lonely nut commenitng on anythign and everything speaking from his emotions. damn bro, you have some of the worst comments in this website’s history! hahahah. It’s pretty sad, dawg. You’re a Youtube Scholar, yay!

    14. al-suyuufi November 12th, 2009 at 6:24 pm

      i meant, don’t generalize on that minority, MR

    15. abdullah November 12th, 2009 at 6:40 pm

      brother MR im afraid you ae very wrong on this one. the brother killed soldiers, not civiliians, soldiers. It was a shame it was only in double figures.

    16. PakistaniMD November 12th, 2009 at 6:59 pm

      I hate to say this, but are you thinking rationally MR!?

      “I do have a rational explanation. They work for the government to attract innocent (and probably stupid) Muslims into a trap which will then lead to a 2 year undercover operation to finally arrest a real Muslim in order to show the public they are keeping America safe from terrorists. Yay! Thanks government for keeping us safe by creating terrorists!”

      You only have to be half-smart to know that the above is a conspiracy theory. Just think about it, please. (If you meant that as a sarcastic comment, then I don;t think the message went across).

    17. Muslim Man November 12th, 2009 at 7:18 pm

      Yursil you are a genius. That’s like saying Bush never killed anyone. The Prophet (SAW) was a general, so he was responsible for killing the enemy.

      As for Muslims praising Nidal being hypocirtes, I have to disagree. Maybe they think that Nidal had certain beliefs when he a JOINED the army and then later CHANGED those beliefs.

    18. Zookeeper November 12th, 2009 at 11:09 pm

      Well MR we don’t know his level of iman when he joined the army. He could have changed his mind, and it is well known that he was totally against the wars.

      So basically what i’m saying is he OBVIOUSLY had a change of heart. I think it had a lot to do with American soldiers baring their souls to him and confessing what is bothering them about their tour on duty.

      That place base is plagued with suicides and low morale. The soldiers cant handle what they saw and experienced…imagine being a Muslim and having to hear that. very difficult indeed.

    19. ZAI November 13th, 2009 at 12:04 am

      This hypocrisy is the natural outcome of the mindless, reactionary, anger and dunyawi inclinations of some Muslims who’ve given into their frustrations and various complexes and thereby sacrifice the higher ethics and morality of our faith to justify reprehensible means…

      This is what happens when people give in to the “beni Islam” mentality as Shaykh Hamza terms it…the blind communal following of so called “Islamic” nationalism….as long as they stick it to America, Israel or whomever, it’s all good in the hood for these folks….what Islamic ethos?

      Civilians being killed. It’s justified….
      Treason to a country that’s given you citizenship…..it’s all good.
      Vigalantism…..he deserved it.
      Supporting horrendous Muslim regimes and leaders….as long as they stick it to America, Israel or India….greenlight.

      If Muslims want success and God’s help then they need to start changing their hearts….and that means standing up for Islamic ethics, morality and values no matter what and especially in setting our own hearts straight…

      if not and we keep thinking we can cut corners, that the ends justify the means, etc. etc…..then we should accept keep getting kicked around and always failing, along w/ the hypocrites who praise this carnage and destruction….

      The Prophet (saw) was so wrong. God (swt) hides so well. A life of love hardly fits into the harshness of the desert nor to the temper of those who live there. God indeed always said, “All must worship Me in truth” so the sons of the Prophet deem only death to the infidel.
      In Victoria’s England a man named Abbott described the spirit world. Contiguous geometrical worlds, each of higher dimensions, allows God to see all that we do while He and His angels cannot be detected even though they are right beside us. Abbott wrote Flatland, drawing on Plato, whose ideas were passed to us through Ibn Rushd ( ابن رشد‎), the Spanish Muslim. Jesus of Nazareth asserted some things that are not possible in our material world. Now the book ‘Techie Worlds’ (available from Amazon.com) shows that those statements of Jesus make mechanical and logical sense when examined in the light of God’s higher spiritual worlds. Those worlds are real!
      ‘Techie Worlds’ shows that God loves. Because God (swt) loves, He is triune (and at the same time, One, Allah akbar!), each Person of God living at a different dimensional level. We were made because God wanted to share Himself. Mohamed did not go far enough; Mohamed (saw) did not understand the love of God.
      Not everything can be explained in this little space. Read ‘Techie Worlds’ and join all the world in God’s (swt) sweet love. Ameen
