“It is not in our religion to kill women—unless they fight—or to kill children, and this is not only in the past, but even today. One of the 𝔓𝔞𝔩𝔢𝔰𝔱𝔦𝔫𝔦𝔞𝔫 𝔐𝔲𝔧𝔞𝔥𝔦𝔡𝔲𝔫 killed a ℨ𝔦𝔬𝔫𝔦𝔰𝔱 settler and did not kill the women and children who were with him in the car. The JΣЩƧ were amazed at that and their newspapers wrote about him themselves. But this act of his is contrary to what [the JΣЩƧ] have in the Torah, especially the Book of Joshua, and the verdicts the rabbis issue and which Netanyahu follows.”

“It is therefore not surprising that the countries of the world unanimously agreed on the Genocide Convention except for America, and for America to provide its ally Israel with all the means of [military] power and give it the biggest [military] aid in history in order to exterminate the Palestinians, and even the Arabs who reject Israel.”

[The Muslims and Western Civilization (1/200)]


“Jerusalem is Islamic and will remain so forever; it is not only Palestinian or Arab.”


“Then the ʝɛῳʂ were forced to withdraw from the ɠąʑą Strip due to their large number of deaths there and their failure to control it. The Arab ʐɨօռɨֆȶֆ and their intelligence services did more than the ʝɛῳʂ could have dreamed of, especially when Sisi and Abbas laid siege to the ɠąʑą Strip more than the ʝɛῳʂ had laid siege to it. But the Muslim masses, east and west, hate the ʝɛῳʂ, and will liberate Jerusalem, God willing; and what the ʝɛῳʂ are committing today of seizing farms and lands, theft, arbitrary arrests, constructing bypasses, demolishing homes, erecting walls, continuous siege, torturing prisoners, unjust sentences, and so on; will all come to an end. An oppressive race has no right or survival.”

Our obligation to ɀìօղìʂʍ is to wage ᒚᓰᕼᗩᕲ against it and boycott it, not to recognize it in any way, nor to visit it as some φąӀҽʂէìղìąղ or Arab ɀìօղìʂէʂ do, nor for Arabs to be its spies in the name of security coordination.


“The נᵉⓦˢ in every nation are evil and a trial. They sow discord, ignite wars, spread immorality and degeneracy, spread corruption on earth, consume usury and what is unlawful. They are the most eager of people to hold onto life, and the most stingy, miserly and worshipping of dirhams and dinars. Among their evil qualities is their hostility to all nations and their arrogance towards others, claiming that they alone are God’s chosen people.”

[The Muslims and Western Civilization (2/610)]


“Upon this same paganism today is the American president who receives the Tibetan "Dalai Lama", who claims divinity and whom Buddhists believe is a god, without the American president standing with the demands of the people of Turkestan and all the "Uyghur" Muslims of China, who are twice as numerous as the Tibetan Buddhists and who venerate Christ and his mother like any Muslim. American policy is misguided by every measure, human or divine.”

[The Muslims and Western Civilization (1/147)]


“The matter is clear, but the liberals are blind in their drunkenness and many Muslims are wandering in heedlessness; a dinar with one of them is dearer to him than his prayers, even though those who did not return on the Day of Uhud with Abdullah bin Ubay, rather the best ones who stayed with the Messenger of Allah ﷺ, Allah said about them:

{ مِنكُم مَّن يُرِيدُ الدُّنْيَا وَمِنكُم مَّن يُرِيدُ الْآخِرَةَ }
“Some of you desired the worldly reward, while others desired the reward of the hereafter.” [Aal ʿImran 3:152]

The most noble generation fell into the shirk of desire, so how about our situation today?”

[The Muslims and Western Civilization (1/118)]


“Today, there is a Crusader wave in the West that they call ‘Islamophobia’, a mental illness that can be better called a bipolar disorder. This ‘Islamophobia’ is not rational at all. The solution for Westerners is to prevent Muslims from emigrating to the West and to work to integrate them into Western societies; such an integration which means that a Muslim abandons his religion completely, turning him into a Christian, secular, or atheist; and which means that he must commit adultery, drink alcohol, marry a Western woman or a Muslim woman marry a disbeliever, and that the believing woman should take off the veil and not cover the hair of her head.”

[The Muslims and Western Civilization (1/95)]


“Just as the Roman Empire collapsed and withered away, the American Empire will also collapse and wither away, especially after America started legalizing wickedness. Rather, the Americans excel in obscenity over the people of Lut, as the people of Lut practiced immorality openly in their gatherings, and the Americans have developed that and become more advanced in immorality than the people of Lut, as there are nudist clubs in America, and while they are n**e they commit all kinds of obscene acts.”

[The Muslims and Western Civilization (1/93)]


“Europe is confused between its alleged belief in human rights and freedom of religion on the one hand, and the fight against so-called ‘terrorism’ and the integration of Muslims into European societies on the other hand.”

[The Muslims and Western Civilization (1/92)]


“If the impartial researcher realizes that the science the West is proud of today has Islamic roots which Westerners stole from Muslims without any indication, then he will realize the great disaster that liberals and their likes want to drag us into when they call us to follow the West’s path and methodology and derive our culture from it.”

[The Muslims and Western Civilization (1/87)]


“We must disavow this pseudo civilization just as Ibrahim disavowed his father and his people and what they were devoted to of statues, temples and planets. It should be left like Yusuf left the religion of a people who did not believe in Allah and denied the Hereafter, and like Muhammad ﷺ left the worship of al-Lat and al-ʿUzza and destroyed the dreams of the Mushrikun. That is, our duty is to destroy the dreams of the West and those who take what the West is as an example with knowledge and evidence.”

[The Muslims and Western Civilization (1/65)]


“Muslims must realize that the goal of the Jews and Crusaders is not merely to obtain land, but rather to have sovereignty over it and enslave its people. They don’t care if Egypt has some of the land of Sinai or that the alleged Palestinian state has some of the land of Palestine, or claim to independence; but rather they care about their ideological colonization and cultural enslavement of Muslims, and that they are the ones dominating.”

“When Western governments — and many Western secularists — say that religion is one thing and politics is another, and that they should be separated; this is a verbal alteration of the Christian saying that they attribute to Christ (may peace be upon him), ‘Give to Caesar what belongs to Caesar, and to God what belongs to God.’ Some of the foolish sons of Muslims follow them in this, thus making Islam two types: religious Islam and political Islam!”

[The Muslims and Western Civilization (1/58)]


“Western thought does not see the big picture, so how can it see the full picture? It is like someone who touches the leg of an elephant with his hand and asserts that it is the trunk of a tree!”

“The US administration alone is not responsible for Islamophobia, rather it is the work of about forty American organizations known by the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR). They are organizations that help the American administration, and Muslims in America are basking in their fire, as the Latins and blacks there are well aware of. Most of these organizations are right-wing fundamentalist, while some of them are represented by the so-called religious left; that is Christian liberals.”

[The Muslims and Western Civilization (1/42)]


“The West 𝘯𝘦𝘦𝘥𝘴 an enemy. If it doesn’t find one, it 𝘤𝘳𝘦𝘢𝘵𝘦𝘴 one. The future war will be — and Allah knows best — between the West and Islam, not because the ‘Clash of Civilizations’ is inevitable as Huntington says, but because the ways of Allah in His creation are the reality, and because the battle between the truth and falsehood is inevitable as Allah says.”

[The Muslims and Western Civilization (1/53)]


“Defeat goes through three stages:

1) The stage of worry, fear and confusion.
2) Then the stage of despair and loss of confidence.
3) Then the stage of surrender or death.

Two stages may come together, as in the case of the Jews.”

[Al-Intifāḍah wal-Tatār al-Judud (p. 35)]


“It is the Islamic scholars, according to the Book of Allah, who should be the rulers. In fact, they are to rule over those in charge.”


𝗕𝗲𝘁𝘄𝗲𝗲𝗻 𝗼𝗯𝗲𝘆𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝗮𝗻𝗱 𝗿𝗲𝘃𝗼𝗹𝘁𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝗮𝗴𝗮𝗶𝗻𝘀𝘁 𝗼𝘂𝗿 𝗿𝘂𝗹𝗲𝗿𝘀

“Everything that the scholars of the Sunnah and orthodox creed have mentioned—of the obligations of listening to and obeying the ruler, fighting jihād alongside him, and the prohibition of rebelling against him—is true, and it is an obligation upon the Muslims to adhere to this.

But this obedience is for the ruler who fulfills the legislated (Islamic) conditions, and this is why they, (the scholars of the Salaf), mentioned this in their creedal works.

This is contrary to those who believe in revolting (against the legitimate ruler who meets the legislated conditions) with the sword to denounce munkar (evil), as the Muʿtazilites and Kharijites opine, and is also counter to those who believe in unconditional and unrestricted obedience, as the Murji’ites opine.

This is from the moderation of Ahl-us-Sunnah; they do not revolt due to oppression, but at the same time they do not remain silent over munkar.

Ahl-us-Sunnah are balanced in all matters.”


“Allah has made returning to the truth subject to three conditions:

1) Repentance.
2) Rectification.
3) Retraction.

All of this is possible and not beyond the capabilities of the human being.”


“The Muslims, be it Sunni or heretical, are one hand against their opponents. Whatever issues they have amongst themselves should be discussed, and the truth adopted. This is what is incumbent upon them.”


“The West says as the Mushrikūn would say (about Muhammad ﷺ):

{ شَاعِرٌ نَتَرَبَّصُ بِهِ رَيْبَ الْمَنُونِ }
“He is a poet for whom we await an ill-fate!” [Al-Tur 30]

Meaning that the religious generation will die out.”


“Under Islam, the upright civilization stands whose book is the Qur’an, not the ‘Book of Genesis’ or ‘The Origin of Species’; whose messenger is Muhammad ﷺ, not Hegel or Nietzsche; and whose reference is what is authentic of hadiths, not ‘Discourse on the Method’ (by Descartes).”


“We believe that the fate of Liberalism in the West is the same as was the fate of Marxism in the East. We are absolutely certain that there is no salvation for humanity from this misery, nor liberation from this hell, except through Islam alone.”


“We call on the Muslims, especially those residing in the West, to give daʿwah and seek dominance, and teach the people there about Islam and its beauties. The freedom they have there to give daʿwah is an opportunity not replaceable, and the people there are most in need of Islam, even if they call themselves progressives, or call Islam terrorism in their media.”


“It is indeed Islam with its principles, virtues, and faith and ethics-based superiority, that is fighting the West, and, as long as the battlefield is the human being, the religion of the fiṭrah will triumph without a doubt.”
