Loya Jirga cannot use shura as a tool to make Haram as Halal

பிக்ஹ் 30 நவம்பர் 2011


Over the last ten years of the blood sucking democracy many 'Loya Jirgas' have been organized under the guise of peoples' rule, but the sole motive of all these 'Loya Jirgas' is to legitimize the brutal invasion by America and NATO forces and nothing else.

This coming Wednesday (16-11-11) a resolution is going to be presented to the Loya Jirga to give complete authority to the Kufar through a strategic pact. With regards to this the people of Afghanistan should consider the following points as per Islamic politics:



1. Jirga is an Afghan tradition and historically started at the time of Kanishka, which proves the fact that it is not an Islamic source rather it is continuation of Jahiliyah tradition.

2. It is incorrect to equate Jirga with Shura, because shura's role is limited to consultation only whereas Jirga executes policies and decisions based on other than what Allah سبحانه وتعالى has revealed. Jirga's role under the colonial umbrella has been to search ways to find a peace deal with the invaders, thus providing legitimacy to the invasion. In Islam, Shura role is to have a consultative body that provides advice to the Khaleefah and the Khaleefah decides based on what Allah سبحانه وتعالى has revealed.

3. No one has the authority to change a single rule that has been ordained by Allah; majority voting cannot be used to pass amendments. Though by using 'shura' as a tool, Loya Jirga always makes Halal Haram and Haram Halal. It's the same Loya Jirga which favored the American model of governance, laws, helping the invaders to strengthen their grip on Afghanistan and now they are trying to legitimize the strategic pact with the same crusaders.

4. Ironically some Islamic groups are of the opinion that Loya Jirga should be used as a platform to stop the strategic pact from happening by convincing people to vote against it. But they don't realize the fact that Loya Jirga in itself is a non-Islamic organization and has no basis whatsoever in Islam. These brothers forget that being part of the non-Islamic organ that does not rule based on what Allah سبحانه وتعالى has revealed is also Haram. So isn't it the right way to stay away from it and strive to make public opinion against it and to expose the fallacious nature of Loya Jirga as being a Jahiliyah organ?

5. Over the last ten years it is evident without a doubt that through Loya Jirga different foreign embassies, under the guise of people's choice, have been heavily influencing the whole process by giving bribes etc. As a result the people of Afghanistan have been ruined on a daily basis, our sacred Islamic traditions, our mothers, sisters, sons and daughters are facing the wrath of these brutal forces. Not only this, they are looting our resources and are introducing anti-Islamic ideas through different means in our society.

6. It's absolutely forbidden to have any peace deal, strategic pact or any other sort of deal with the aggressors. The Holy Qur'an clearly states:

وَلَنْ يَجْعَلَ اللَّهُ لِلْكَافِرِينَ عَلَى الْمُؤْمِنِينَ سَبِيلًا

"Allah will not give the kuffar any way against the believers." (An-Nisaa, 4:141)

Similarly taking help from the Kuffar and their armies is utterly forbidden, as our beloved Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم said:

"Don't take light from the fire of Kuffar." (Ahmed)

fire here is an indication of war.

Moreover he صلى الله عليه وسلم said: "we don't seek help from polytheists" (Ibn Haban).

And he صلى الله عليه وسلم also said:

"I am free (bariu) from every Muslim who fights together with a polytheist."

All these sayings of the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم proves that signing any permanent treaty or strategic pact with the Kuffar is absolutely forbidden. Therefore, it is Haram to do any Jirga or consultation in matters that are clearly forbidden.

7. Allah سبحانه وتعالى has given us a complete way of life 'Islam'. The sources to extract rules are Qur'an, Sunnah, Ijma and Qiyas (analogy) and not the majority. Allah سبحانه وتعالى says in the Qur'an:

وَنَزَّلْنَا عَلَيْكَ الْكِتَابَ تِبْيَانًا لِكُلِّ شَيْءٍ وَهُدًى وَرَحْمَةً وَبُشْرَىٰ لِلْمُسْلِمِي

"We have sent down the Book to you making all things clear and as guidance and mercy and good news for the Muslims." (al-Nahl, 16:89)

O' Mujahid people of Afghanistan!

According to the evil plans of American and NATO you can never achieve peace and prosperity. Such types of Loya Jirga and other similar American projects can never legitimize the Haram strategic pacts. Muslims of Afghanistan and of the entire world can only resolve their problems through the complete implementation of Islam and this is only possible by re-establishing the unified Islamic state 'Khilafah', which will implement Islam internally and then the entire world through dawah and jihad, as well as liberating all occupied Muslim lands.
