Imam: Nidal Hasan Did the Right Thing

From the blog of Anwar al Awlaki, who was the ‘Imam’ in the Falls Church, Virginia mosque attended by Mr. Hasan and several of the 9/11 hijackers:

Nidal Hassan Did the Right Thing

November 9, 2009 – الاثنين 22 ذو القعدة 1430 by Anwar alAwlaki

Nidal Hassan is a hero. He is a man of conscience who could not bear living the contradiction of being a Muslim and serving in an army that is fighting against his own people. This is a contradiction that many Muslims brush aside and just pretend that it doesn’t exist. Any decent Muslim cannot live, understanding properly his duties towards his Creator and his fellow Muslims, and yet serve as a US soldier. The US is leading the war against terrorism which in reality is a war against Islam. Its army is directly invading two Muslim countries and indirectly occupying the rest through its stooges.

Nidal opened fire on soldiers who were on their way to be deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan. How can there be any dispute about the virtue of what he has done? In fact the only way a Muslim could Islamically justify serving as a soldier in the US army is if his intention is to follow the footsteps of men like Nidal.

The heroic act of brother Nidal also shows the dilemma of the Muslim American community. Increasingly they are being cornered into taking stances that would either make them betray Islam or betray their nation. Many amongst them are choosing the former. The Muslim organizations in America came out in a pitiful chorus condemning Nidal’s operation.

The fact that fighting against the US army is an Islamic duty today cannot be disputed. No scholar with a grain of Islamic knowledge can defy the clear cut proofs that Muslims today have the right -rather the duty- to fight against American tyranny. Nidal has killed soldiers who were about to be deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan in order to kill Muslims. The American Muslims who condemned his actions have committed treason against the Muslim Ummah and have fallen into hypocrisy.

Allah(swt) says: Give tidings to the hypocrites that there is for them a painful punishment – Those who take disbelievers as allies instead of the believers. Do they seek with them honor [through power]? But indeed, honor belongs to Allah entirely. (al-Nisa 136-137)

The inconsistency of being a Muslim today and living in America and the West in general reveals the wisdom behind the opinions that call for migration from the West. It is becoming more and more difficult to hold on to Islam in an environment that is becoming more hostile towards Muslims.

May Allah grant our brother Nidal patience, perseverance and steadfastness and we ask Allah to accept from him his great heroic act.


Mr. Awlaki now lives in Yemen. So it’s good to see he nevertheless keeps apprised of the doings of his flock.

Imagine the satisfaction Mr. Hasan will have when he reads this.

    In keeping on that line of thought I will inject my own parable:
    “It is never too late to Right your Right with my own Right, right?”
    For when all is done, you usually shake in hell.

  2. And there are more like the estimable terrorist mentor Mr. Awlaki in this country yet. Shall we continue such tolerance which allows these “tragedies” to continue?

    My guess is that we will.

    Add Fort Hood to the list below;


    Why won’t the Federal government charge the mosque where this moron came from and the Islamic terrorist orgainization be charged under R.I.C.O.?
