Anwar al Awlaki, an American-born imam of Yemeni descent who now lives in Yemen, sees Allah’s avenging hand in the economic crisis, and advises Muslims to leave America. Few Muslims, of course, will heed his words, given the fact that an America in economic collapse is still likely to be a more pleasant place to live than his own Yemen or most countries in the Islamic world. And then there is always the Muslim Brotherhood’s grand jihad to eliminate and destroy Western civilization “from within” — can’t do it from Yemen.
“Is the Franklin morphing into the Washington?!,” by Anwar al Awlaki, October 6:
[…] Brothers and Sisters this leads to the belief that the punishment of Allah is hovering over America. When? And how? Allah knows best.
So if you are one of those unfortunate folks who turned out to be living in the wrong place at the wrong time then it is advisable for you to leave. That is obviously if you take heed. Many don’t and are still living the utopia of the American dream. I am not talking about Mo and Mike who are still shaking to the tunes of MTV with their coke and big mac and are only Muslim by name, but I am talking about the practicing Muslims who sadly enough still think that the America of George W is the Abyssinia of the Negus.
Early in the history of Islam, when tensions were high between the Muslims and the pagan Quraysh tribe of Mecca, Muhammad sent some of the Muslims to Abyssinia, where they were welcomed and found refuge.
Hijra [flight, emigration] for the sake of Allah will continue until the day of Judgment. If you leave with the intention of forsaking the people of sin and protecting your family from evil you would be rewarded abundantly. But not everyone has the capacity to make hijra just like there were some Muslims who could not make hijra from Makkah [Mecca] at the time of Rasulullah [Prophet of Allah, i.e., Muhammad]. So for those who cannot they should pray to Allah to make a way out for them and protect them from the people of transgression.
If you are a person whom Allah has bestowed wealth upon then you should avoid owning property in the US and you should diversify out of the dollar into gold and silver. Gold and silver have retained there value over history and there is no reason to think that they would not do the same in the future. In addition to this being the prudent thing to do from a financial point of view, it is also the recommended thing to do Islamicly. Muslims should not be supporting the economy of a nation that is fighting them.
Finally, for those who are contemplating purchasing a home in the US based on mortgage which is a clear form of Riba [usury] they should fear Allah. In addition to it being one of the most evil sins in Islam it is putting money in the wrong place. Allah says that He will destroy Riba. It is a promise from Allah. There is no blessing in anything based on it. What is happening in the US nowadays is a testimony to that….
