Shaykhul-Islam (Mufti) Rafi Usmani (HA) on Peshawar Terrorism
17th December 2014

Taaliban: This word in Urdu means seekers (of Islamic knowledge)

Zaaliman: This word in Urdu means brutal oppressors  


Allah (SWT) has stated:

[4:93] But whoever kills a believer intentionally - his recompense is Hell, wherein he will abide eternally, and Allah has become angry with him and has cursed him and has prepared for him a great punishment.

The murder of a Muslim is regarded as the worst of crimes (atrocities) in the Qur’aan and the Hadeeth. The verse of the Qur’aan which I have just quoted  makes it explicitly clear that the abode of the one who kills a believer is the fire of hell in which he will reside forever, Allah (SWT)’s wrath will descend upon him and he will be the recipient of curse of Allah (SWT) and a frightful torment has been prepared for such an individual.

Then he narrated a portion of a Hadeeth of Nabi (Sallallaho Alaihe Wassallam) which states:

حَدَّثَنَا أَبُو بَكْرِ بْنُ أَبِي شَيْبَةَ، وَمُحَمَّدُ بْنُ الْمُثَنَّى، وَابْنُ، بَشَّارٍ جَمِيعًا عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ جَعْفَرٍ، عَنْ شُعْبَةَ، ح وَحَدَّثَنَا عُبَيْدُ اللَّهِ بْنُ مُعَاذٍ، - وَاللَّفْظُ لَهُ - حَدَّثَنَا أَبِي، حَدَّثَنَا شُعْبَةُ، عَنْ عَلِيِّ بْنِ مُدْرِكٍ، سَمِعَ أَبَا زُرْعَةَ، يُحَدِّثُ عَنْ جَدِّهِ، جَرِيرٍ قَالَ قَالَ لِيَ النَّبِيُّ صلى الله عليه وسلم فِي حَجَّةِ الْوَدَاعِ ‏"‏ اسْتَنْصِتِ النَّاسَ ‏"‏ ‏.‏ ثُمَّ قَالَ ‏"‏ لاَ تَرْجِعُوا بَعْدِي كُفَّارًا يَضْرِبُ بَعْضُكُمْ رِقَابَ بَعْضٍ ‏"‏ ‏.‏

It is narrated on the authority of Jarir b. 'Abdullah that the Messenger of Allah (may peace and blessings be upon him) asked him on the occasion of the Farewell Pilgrimage to make the people silent and then said: "Do not return to unbelief after me by striking the necks of one another." [Muslim]

During the last sermon our beloved Nabi (Sallallaho Alaihe Wassallam) gave us many beneficial pieces of advice and one amongst them being that after him (Sallallaho Alaihe Wassallam) we were warned not to become like the disbelievers by striking each other’s necks (i.e. killing each other).

The verse of the Qur’aan in conjunction with the Hadeeth informs us that the killing of believers (amongst each others) is an act of disbelievers, this is not an act of believers. I am here (in particular) referring to the shocking, horrific and shameful incident which occurred in Peshawar, grief has struck the heart of every person by this tragedy.  To be honest, this is an  incident which has humiliated the Nation! Those who have perpetrated this crime if they call themselves “Taaliban” then it is an utter lie! If they were truly “Taaliban”, if they were truly amongst those engage themselves in seeking (knowledge of Islam) then they would have never committed such an act! These are “Zaaliman”, they are Terrorists, they are rebels, they are mutineers, they are committed treason against the Nation, its people, and they have waged war against the people of Islam. These (acts of brutality) cannot be committed by even an ordinary Muslim because even in the thick of battle (with the disbelievers) Islam commands us to withhold our hand from (harming) the children but these Terrorists, these Oppressors, these Brutal Savages, these Barbarians  have slain innocent children in such a manner which has left the (their parents) devastated and heartbroken. Their savagery inflicted upon the families is felt by every Muslim, nay I should say even by Non-Muslims of Pakistan. No Nation which has even an ounce of humanity displays its bravery by inflicting pain and murder on innocent children.

May Allah (SWT) destroy these Terrorists! This is the time where the entire Nation should stand together, all religious and political parties should unite (and stand together), all institutes and machinery of the Government should stand together and everyone should be united on eliminating these Terrorists (from this country). The existence of these (vile) Terrorists should shouldn’t be tolerated in this Nation, they should be entirely eliminated to the extent that none (of them) remains behind.

We share the sorrow of the Parents and our hearts are crying in the pain of losing (these children). Our hearts are bleeding at the pain of the children, parents and the families.

May Allah (SWT) grant you patience, fortitude and eternal success and the oppressors should be hunted down and given what they deserve!
