mushrikeen

Why don’t you laugh?

Abu Ubayd Al-Asqalaani said: 

رأيت أبا عبيدة الخواص لم يضحك أربعين سنة. فقيل له: لم لا تضحك ؟ فقال: كيف أضحك أنا ، وفي أيدي المشركين من المسلمين أحد 

I have not seen Abu Ubaidah Al-Khawas laugh for forty years. It was said to him: “Why don’t you laugh?” He said: “How can I laugh while a Muslim is still imprisoned by the Mushrikeen?!”

Reference : Sifat Al-Safwah

When the Mushrikeen used to call upon Allāh out of compulsion, He would answer their supplication, so how about believers?!!

“I have not seen Abu Ubaydah Al-Khawas laugh for forty years. It was said to him: “Why don’t you laugh?” He said: “How can I laugh while a Muslim is still imprisoned by the Mushrikeen?!”
—  Abu Ubayd Al-Asqalaani said: [Sifat Al-Safwah, 2/416]
Legislation is worship, so democracy is a religion that is worshipped, followed, obeyed and set up as a rival to Allah جل في علاه. So it’s upon each and every Muslim to reject, hate and show enmity towards it in its entirety, from its root to its branches, and it’s followers. Legislation is only for Allah, and striving towards this, and Khilafa 3ala Minhaajun Nubuwwa, is something which is obligatory upon each and every Muslim. There’s bumps along the way, and there always will be, but will the people turn back on their heels just because they are faced with some hostility and problems, whether its internal or from the Mushrikeen? Sabr wa Thabāt, the matter will continue, until the hour is established, like RasulAllah صلى الله عليه وسلم said …
Mushrikeen And Their Shirk

Ibn al-Qayyim:

Allaah the Most High cut of all means for the Mushrikeen to attach themselves to their false deities, in such an incredible way, only people with understanding will realize how amazing it is.

Because the sole reason why a Mushrik takes a false god besides Allaah and makes it their object of worship is due to their presumption that this being (idol, dead person, trees etc) can bring  them some sort of benefit.

And benefit is only gain through four types of means, these being;

FIRST: The object of worship is an Owner, and by worshipping the object it will grant you what you desire.

SECOND: The object of worship is not an Owner but rather is a partner and can still fulfill your wishes.

THIRD: The object of worship is neither an Owner nor a partner but is a helper to the Owner and can still answer your supplications.

FOURTH: The object of worship is neither an Owner nor a partner, not even a helper but only an intercessor and can thus bring you benefit in such a way.

And Allaah the Most High, refuted each of these four claims throughout the Qur’aan, one after the other, He is the only true Owner (al-Maalik) and has no partners whatsoever, nor does He have any helpers and no one can intercede on anyone’s behalf accept by His permission.
