EXCERPT FROM THE BOOK AL-WALA’ WA’L-BARA’

ALLEGIANCE AND SEVERANCE,

DO NOT INCLINE TOWARDS THOSE WHO ARE UNJUST OR THE FIRE WILL TOUCH YOU, AND YOU HAVE NO PROTECTORS OTHER THAN ALLAH, NOR WOULD YOU THEN BE HELPED.

To seek the love or affection of the disbeliever is to ally yourself to them.  Allah subhana wa ta ala forbids such conduct:

YOU WILL NOT FIND ANY PEOPLE WHO BELIEVE IN ALLAH AND THE LAST DAY, MAKING FRIENDSHIP WITH THOSE WHO OPPOSE ALLAH AND HIS MESSENGER, EVEN THOUGH THEY WERE THEIR FATHERS, OR THEIR SON, OR THEIR BROTHERS, OR THEIR KINDRED.

Ibn Taymiyyah said:  “Allah has informed us that you will not find any believer seeking the affection of those who challenge Allah and His Messenger, since faith itself would prevent this, just as two opposites repel one another.   So as long as there is faith, loyalty to the enemies of Allah is impossible  If someone has bound his heart to the disbeliever, then this is proof that his heart also is devoid of faith.  Allah has said:

O you who believe!  Do not take My enemies and your enemies as friends, showing affection towards them, while they have disbelieved in truth that has come to you.

 

Hud 113,Al-Mujadilah 22, Al-Mumtahinah 21

 

This is just quick reminder.  Sometimes we need to study and learn about our religion. And how should we behave towards the ones who oppress our Ummah.  And not become allies of with them.
