Five Reasons Why Muslims Should Contact the Saudi and Nigerian Embassies
1- It is our moral and religious responsibility to speak out and condemn those involved in committing the oppression, whether directly or indirectly, by action or by their silence. We may be not physically present in front of the oppressor to speak directly to them, however, we can speak our voices from long distances across the globe to the intermediates at hand.
2- When thousands of Muslims bombard the Saudi and Nigerian embassy with phone calls and questions day in and day out, then the embassies cannot ignore us. They will be bothered for sure and will be forced to convey our message to their seniors and perhaps share the same fervor and complaint!
3- Why call the embassy? The embassies and consulates are the official representatives of their respective countries. They are the main point of contact for the people and hence our questions and concerns should be directed to them, among other sources.
4- Keeping silent in the face of oppression is the easiest way to increase oppression and injustice across the world. When the tyrant governments realize that people will not keep quiet against their injustice and will raise their voices, it is a starting point to making change. They will realize that they cannot and will not get away with murder!
5-Sheikh Nimr Baqir Al-Nimr has sadly been executed and a lantern of light has been extinguished. Let us not wait till the currently detained Sheikh Zakzaky of Nigeria gets killed and meet the same fate of execution. Today is the day to act before we regret the consequences tomorrow!
Five Proposed Questions to the Saudi Embassy:
1- Why did you deprive Sheikh Nimr of his right to free speech?
2- What gives you the right to kill Sheikh Nimr? Are you God that decides who lives and who doesn’t?
Is that your version of Islam?
3- What is the problem with coexistence between Sunnis and Shias?
4- Tell me how you are different from ISIS? They kill those who disagree.
5- Are you doing anything to prevent the pending execution of Ali Al Nimr, nephew of Sheikh Nimr?
Five Proposed Questions to the Nigerian Embassy:
1- Where is Sheikh Zakzaky right now and why are you persistent to keep this information secret?
2- Was Sheikh Zakzaky doing anything violent that you had to hold him as prisoner? Did the Saudi regime asked you to do this?
3- Does your country support human rights? Are you aware that freedom of religion is allowed in Nigeria?
4- When will Sheikh Zakzaky be free? Will you punish the perpetrators?
5- What makes you any different from Boko Haram? Did they not commit mass murder the same way you have?
Five Points of Divine Guidance in Standing against Oppression:
1- Allah (SWT) said in Hadith Qudsi: “I shall take revenge on the oppressor in this world and the next. I shall take revenge on someone who saw the person being oppressed and was able to help him but did not.”
2- The best Jihad is to speak a word of truth to a tyrannical ruler.” – Prophet Muhammad (SA)
3- “A tyrant and the one who helps an oppressor as well as the one who is pleased with such injustice all the three are accomplices in the sin.” –Imam Al-Baqir (AS)
4- The Prophet (SA) said: “If one of you sees something evil he should change it with his hand. If he cannot, he should speak out against it, and if he cannot do even that he should at least detest it in his heart, this being the weakest form of faith.”
5- “…And do not help one another in sin and oppression; and be careful of (your duty to) Allah; surely Allah is severe in requiting evil.”– Holy Quran [5:2]
