Our base and Whereabouts?
Mu' meneen Brothers and Sisters,
As Salaam Aleikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
I read the questions and answers very interestingly, some people posed a question asking about your base and whereabouts, why did you not tell them where exactly you were located ? is it becasue you were scared they will harm you after you have told them the truth maybe ? we are told that the prophets and the companions were telling the truth and announcing islam on the faces of kafirs, and they did not fear.
(There may be some grammatical and spelling errors in the above statement. The forum does not change anything from questions, comments and statements received from our readers for circulation in confidentiality.)
Our base and Whereabouts?
In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is no one (no idol, no person, no grave, no prophet, no imam, no dai, nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.
Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 23 Surah Al-Muminun verse 52:And this Ummah of yours is one Ummah, and I (Allah) am your Lord, so fear Me alone!
Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 3 Surah Ale Imran verse 175:It was Shaitaan who was frightening the people with the fear of his awliyaas; therefore, in future, do not fear men, but fear Me (Allah), if you are true believers.
Sometimes, people are more interested in finding out who we are, why we do what we do, and where we are located, etc. rather than concentrating on the Message of Allah and His Messenger (saws) that we strive to provide.
Allah is our witness, we fear no one except our Lord and Creator Alone; as He Alone deserves to be feared! It is our belief as believers that if the whole world got together and tried to harm us, they would not be able to do so; unless my Lord Wills it! And if the whole world got together and tried to give us some benefit, they would not be able to do so; unless our Lord permits it! Thus, we assure you that we do not fear anyone, except our Lord and Creator of the Heavens and the Earth!
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
Your Brother in Islam,
