Seeking light from the fire of the Mushrikeen is Haraam 

Dr. Abd al-Karim al-Iriani, the former Prime Minister of Yemen said in
the program broadcast by the al-Jazeera channel called ³From Washington²
(Friday 22/11/2002): "The reality is that the issue of American ­ Yemeni
relations in fighting terrorism has taken various dimensions in recent
days, though it is not a secret that the Yemeni republic cooperates with
America and others in fighting terrorism". He also said: "It is natural
that we would cooperate with the US given that she is the biggest and
most extensive in capability and potential".

This shameless regime openly states that it cooperates with America,
without feeling any sense of betrayal, or fear of Allah. Allah has
forbidden cooperation with Kuffar in a war against Kuffar; so what is
the matter with this regime that it seeks the help of the Kuffar, with
all their abilities, in a war against Islam and the Muslims? The
Messenger of Allah (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) said: 

"We do not seek light from the Fire of the Mushrikeen (i.e. seek their

Indeed, it is contempt for the Ummah that has led these rulers to seek
the help of the worst enemy of the Muslims. It is due to the weakness,
terrible humiliation and dependence of these rulers on the forces of
Kufr to protect their seats of power, and due to the silence of the
people, that America has the audacity to commit the most atrocious of
crimes against the Muslims, even in their own lands. 

After America¹s assassination of Sanan al-Harithi (in Yemen) and those
members of al-Qa¹ida who were with him in an ambush and all else that
she currently does, the most important issue for the ruling regime in
Yemen is to prove to the people that all of this cooperation occurs with
their consent and not by force. This is to prove that Yemeni sovereignty
has not been violated. So what kind of sovereignty is this that has not
been violated, dear Dr. Abd al-Kareem?

Is this regime unaware that killing a Muslim is Haraam and that even the
destruction of the Ka¹bah is of less value in the sight of Allah than
the killing of a Muslim without right? Or is it the case that the one
who calls to Allah and His Messenger deserves to be killed at the hands
of Kuffar? 

The Messenger of Allah (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) said: 

"Should the Ka¹bah be destroyed stone by stone, this is less (important)
in the sight of Allah than the spilling of the blood of a Muslim".

And he (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) said: 

"The destruction of the world is far less (important) to Allah than the
killing of (one) Muslim man".

O Muslims:

The regime is not content to make you attack each other and incite
tribal revenge amongst you, rather it has brought the Kaafir West, under
the leadership of America, to impose its sovereignty, kill your sons,
plunder your resources and humiliate you in your own homes. Is this the
role of these rulers? How far they are from the early rulers of the
Muslims. For instance, when al-Mu¹tasim heard that a woman who had
fallen prisoner to Rome had cried out: "O Mu¹tasim!" he sent a letter to
the king of Rome saying: ³Release the woman or I will send an army whose
beginning will reach you before its end has left me.² He did this and
conquered ŒAmmuriyyah. How far they are from the likes of Haroon
ar-Rashid, who sent a letter to the King of Rome when he refused to pay
the Jizyah to the Muslims, in which he said: "As for the reply, it is
something you shall see with your own eyes and not something you will
read." This is how the rulers of the Muslims were; they protected the
Muslims and defended them from their enemies; they did not seek the help
of their enemies. As for the rulers of this age, they are as the
Messenger of Allah (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) described them: 

"Rulers will be appointed amongst you, if you obey them they will
humiliate you and if you disobey them they will kill you".

They fight their own people and sons to please America. Furthermore they
know that the Americans will never be happy with them, whatever they do,
until they replace them with those who will be more loyal and faithful.
America does not help the rulers because she loves them, but rather due
to her hatred of Islam and the Muslims. She uses them as a tool in her
war against Islam and by this they think they can get America¹s
approval. She will exploit what they are doing against their own people
and when she becomes free to deal with them, she will discard them and
replace them. A

"Never will the Jews or the Christians be pleased with you (O Muhammad
Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) till you follow their religion" [2:120].

O Muslims:

The wind of change is blowing and Islam is definitely coming. So be part
of its army and rush to the Forgiveness (maghfirah) and Good Pleasure
(ridwaan) of Allah by working to change these rulers and establishing
rulers who will follow the Rightly Guided Khulafa (may Allah be pleased
with them). Know that there is no deliverance for you except to work
seriously to establish the Khilafah Rashidah, which will protect your
sovereignty, fight those who fight you, help you against your enemies
and rule over you by the Book of Allah and the Sunnah of His Messenger.
Furthermore, it will help you in the obedience to Allah and His
Messenger (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam). He (Sallallahu alaihi wa
sallam) said: 

"Indeed, the Imaam is a shield behind which the Muslims fight and defend

"O you who believe! Answer Allah (by obeying Him) and (His) Messenger
when he calls you to that which gives you life" [8:24].
