WHY THE ARABIC PHRASE ALLAHU AKBAR FOLLOWS EVERY TERRORIST ATTACK?
WHAT OR WHO IS BEHIND IT?
ALLAHU AKBAR-ALLAHU KABEER-ALLAHU ALAKBAR?
The reality of terrorism is so obvious and so present that we welcome every new day with the concern that something bad always could happen. That is exactly the main goal of the terrorists, who don’t count so much on the victims as they count on keeping the people in constant fear. Realizing the terrorist attacks, they establish the theater for their sick performances. They feel then like masters of disasters, like they control all and that all depends on them. Terrorist’s mind is a typical psychopath’s mind but more oriented to the ideological inspiration than to some personal inner voices. However, the both of them damage our societies and bring the chaos, in micro and in macro way.
Today, on March 22, 2016 early in the morning, the capitol of Belgium and also the headquarter of the EU, Brussels has been hit by a dual terror attacks with explosions hitting the airport and one hour later the Maelbeek metro station. In the first there were 14 people killed and in the second another 20. The act of terrorism was committed just few days after capture of Salah Abdeslam, mastermind of Paris attack in November. Experts believe that jihadists were in panic that the network will be detected and somehow stopped so they step in earlier. The Islamic State has immediately claimed responsibility and warned the UK and everyone who is fighting against them the next terrorism game will be hard and bitter.
This rhetoric is for expecting as it is for expecting from the EU to be shocked and to admit that the coordination among intelligence services has been failed.The liberal politicians state that Islam is not to blame and that we must stay united against the darkness of terrorism over Europe while in the same time extreme wings hail that borders should be shut down and immigrants should be sent home. Reflecting the current Agreement between EU and Turkey, immigrants are betrayed by the same liberals who lose the political points in the election year and try all they can to prevent their own political debacle by making even more damage to all.
Somehow in the silence and from behind comes to us the awareness of political Islam ideology again abused in Islamic terrorism against kufr. This is higher level of jihadism because it is raised within Europe, on domestic ground. Back in the past, the terrorists traveled and smuggled themselves to reach the target and to accomplish the mission.Now, they are here and they know every single part of kafir world so they know how to act and how to overcome the obstacles without risk to be discovered.They are Europeans like we are. Home grown terrorists and the home grown terrorism, our evil plant. They are inspired with the outer jihad ideology and they merge with the influences from the core of the islamists so smoothly. Everything they know about the infidels they use against infidels and for rise of their own ideology or something they believe in. They are all following the same model of terrorism and that is why this kind of terrorism is labeled as an Islamic one, because they hide themselves behind the Islamic religion or behind the elements of that religion which can be mistreat for different purposes. They simply started the holy war and their jihad is hybridized- based on their interpretation of Prophet Mohammed words many centuries ago and on their own theory of jihad which is not anything but pure excuse for killings and destruction. When Prophet Mohammed invented jihad, it wasnt considered as a war but as a struggle. The Arabic word for war is harb.Jihad is everything which could be used and abused against those who do not submit to Islam. Jihad is as Bill Warner writes:”…done with the tongue, the pen, money and the sword.” The Islamic terrorists nowadays try to implement it but they are mostly successful in killing of innocent while their struggle for Islam fails as they are considered as terrorists because they are cowards and never can be warriors. Above all, they do not follow the religion but defected ideology grounded on greedy motives in 21st century.
When i read about terrorist attacks or anything which is connected with Islamists, I usually hear the phrase Allahu Akbar in the background of the story. Some Islamic terrorist before the final act of suicide terrorism said “Allahu Akbar” , the Islamist group screamed “Allahu Akbar” as the war cry or some simple lunatic used that expression to make other people afraid. Instinctively, when every ordinary person hears this it is a kind of red alert that maybe danger is around. So, what is “Allahu Akbar” for radical Muslims beside the literal translation ” The God is great”?
First of all, we are defining the term TAKBIR (تَكْبِير) a verbal noun for “meaning great” so when we see K-B-R root it is easy to understand that in Arabic language, the statement Allahu Akbar (الله أكبر) is derivative and if we link that to the term Allah as an Arabic name for God, the phrase becomes the daily routine for many Muslims to say “God is great” or “God is greater” symbolizing His power over all other creatures and things. Usually, Arabic language doesn’t let the space for free translations so if we want to say “God is great” then we use “Allāhu kabeer (الله كبير) ” and if we want to say “God is the greatest” it is “Allāhu alakbar (الله الأكبر)“. This term could be used in daily call for prayer but also in the holy war against enemies, emphasizing that believers have something greater than themselves to fight for and that Allah is always greater and more powerful than any enemy.
The terrorists who use this phrase just before they kill or behead or commit a terrorist act it is a kind of attempt for them to feel closer with their own religion and to convince themselves that they only praise a God, that they die for their God.It is not only their war mad cry but also the last greeting to the world they were disturbing by their evil understanding of God and God’s wishes. Saying something like this in public today is considered as a warning and echo of horror what that expression has been always followed with. Sometimes, the incidents could be even more dangerous when the phrase is spoken when it is not the right time or right place. Iraq in 2005 cant forget the severe tragedy known as 2005 Al-Aaimmah bridge stampede, where Muslim believers were visiting the holy grave of Alkadhim in Baghdad and they were passing the bridge towards that place when some shouted “Allahu Akbar”. People thought it is a voice of potential suicide terrorist and they panicked and rushed so about 950 people died just because they were trying to escape from terrorist attack, which was nothing but a scream for praise of Allah made by one believer. It was nothing sinister but it caused many victims.
This phrase, as almost everything in Islamic religion, has a dual nature and that is the main problem when it comes to the situations with terrorism. Terrorists who shout “Allahu Akbar” shows to the rest of the world that they belong to Islam and that they believe in hard jihad rather than any soft. It is tragic that moderate Muslims pay the price of this madness caused by extremists and those who never understood the rule of abrogation in Qur’an. That is all about following the religion rules made before or after, Qur’an from Mecca or Qur’an from Medina.For example, Surah Al-Baqarah (2:256) :
“There shall be no compulsion in [acceptance of] the religion. The right course has become clear from the wrong. So whoever disbelieves in Taghut and believes in Allah has grasped the most trustworthy handhold with no break in it. And Allah is Hearing and Knowing.”
No compulsion. What Islamists hold on while they are killing infidels and shouting God is greater?Maybe it is Surah At-Tawbah (9:5) :
“And when the sacred months have passed, then kill the polytheists wherever you find them and capture them and besiege them and sit in wait for them at every place of ambush. But if they should repent, establish prayer, and give zakah, let them [go] on their way. Indeed, Allah is Forgiving and Merciful.”
According to the rule of abrogation, this one should be more important than the previous peaceful one.
But what about the Surah At-Tawbah (9:6) :
“And if any one of the polytheists seeks your protection, then grant him protection so that he may hear the words of Allah . Then deliver him to his place of safety. That is because they are a people who do not know.”
Should this be considered as the right one after that which is calling for killing? It is important to emphasize that is is usually written polytheists and Christians and Jews are people of Book so they cant be typical polytheists.
There is also one who is absolutely the most abused by terrorists Surah At-Tawbah (9:29)
“Fight those who do not believe in Allah or in the Last Day and who do not consider unlawful what Allah and His Messenger have made unlawful and who do not adopt the religion of truth from those who were given the Scripture – [fight] until they give the jizyah willingly while they are humbled.”
I strongly believe that Islamic terrorists interpret what they want and how they want. They are not religious people because religion doesn’t go hand by hand with killers.They are the vampires of religion, using it to feed their hunger by innocent blood every time they shout Allahu Akbar. They have opened the door of hell for the whole world and turned our lives into nightmares but they shouldnt be labeled as Muslims. Because they are cowards and killers who are hiding behind one religion and they are screaming “God is greater” because they have been always small and pathetic version of the ancient warriors from the Prophet Mohammed time. Nothing else but psychopaths gathered about Agenda.
My heart is bleeding for the victims of Brussels Terrorist Attack and all of those innocent people who will suffer because of this attack.We have many types of jihad but not jihad on terrorism.
So, God is not so great at the end of the day.
