Het gevaar van shirk en de bestraffing ervan

By Marianna Laarif

Allah vergeeft de pleger van shirk niet als hij sterft en geen berouw heeft getoond. Het bewijs hiervoor zijn de Woorden van Allah (interpretatie van de betekenis):

Waarlijk Allah vergeeft het niet dat er deelgenoten aan Hem worden toegekend en Hij vergeeft buiten dit (alles) aan wie Hij wil.                                   (Soerat an-Nisaa’: 48)
De pleger van shirk treedt buiten de Islam. Het bewijs hiervoor zijn de Woorden van Allah (interpretatie van de betekenis):
En dit is een oproep van Allah en Zijn Profeet richting de mensen op de dag van de grote bedevaart, dat Allah en Zijn Boodschapper vrij zijn van de Moeshrikoen (veelgodenaanbidders).                                               (Soerat at-Tauwbah: 3)
Allah accepteert de daden van een moeshrik niet en al zijn voorgaande daden zullen zijn als verstrooid stof. Het bewijs hiervoor zijn de Woorden van Allah (interpretatie van de betekenis):
En Wij wenden Ons tot de daden die zij hebben verricht en Wij maken die tot verstrooid stof.                                                                              (Soerat al-Foerqaan: 23)
Het binnentreden van het Paradijs is haraam voor de pleger van shirk en hij zal voor eeuwig in het Hellevuur verblijven. Het bewijs hiervoor zijn de Woorden van Allah (interpretatie van de betekenis):
Waarlijk, wie deelgenoten aan Allah toekent, Allah heeft het Paradijs voor hem verboden gemaakt en zijn verblijfplaats is het Vuur en voor de onrechtplegers zijn er geen helpers.                                                                                                         (Soerat al-Maa’idah: 72)

(Reuters) – Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas has named a new prime minister to replace Western-favored economist Salam Fayyad who quit in April and formally leaves office this month, a Palestinian official told Reuters on Sunday.

The official said Abbas, head of the mainstream Fatah movement, had asked Rami Hamdallah, a political independent and university head, to form a new cabinet, the official said, speaking on condition of anonymity.

Top cleric Qaradawi calls for Jihad against Hezbollah, Assad in Syria

Sheikh Yousef al-Qaradawi, an Egyptian cleric based in Qatar, urged Muslim Sunni youth to go fight Shiite Hezbollah in Syria.

Influential Sunni Muslim cleric Sheikh Youssef al-Qaradawi on Saturday called for jihad in Syria as he lashed out at Shiite group Hezbollah for sending its men to fight the mostly-Sunni insurgents in Syria.

“Every Muslim trained to fight and capable of doing that (must) make himself available” to support the Syrian rebels, the cleric said at a rally in Doha late Friday.

“Iran is pushing forward arms and men (to back the Syrian regime), so why do we stand idle?” he said, branding Lebanese militant group Hezbollah, which means the party of God in Arabic, as the “party of Satan.”

Hezbollah, a close ally of Iran and the Syrian regime, is openly engaged in the fight against the rebels in Syria. It has also fought for years against Israel, arch rival of Iran and Syria.

“The leader of the party of the Satan comes to fight the Sunnis… Now we know what the Iranians want… They want continued massacres to kill Sunnis,” Qaradawi said.

“How could 100 million Shiites (worldwide) defeat 1.7 billion (Sunnis)?” he exclaimed, “only because (Sunni) Muslims are weak”.

The cleric blamed himself for previously backing Hezbollah and its leader Hassan Nasrallah who gained popularity after steadfastly leading his group in the fight against Israel in 2006.

“I defended the so-called Nasrallah and his party, the party of tyranny… in front of clerics in Saudi Arabia,” which is wary of neighboring Shiite Iran and its allies.

“It seems that the clerics of Saudi Arabia were more mature than me,” Qaradawi said.

But the cleric insisted that his call to fight Hezbollah is “not against all Shiites.”

Fighters of Hezbollah are engaged in fierce battles against the rebels to capture the Syrian town of Qusayr near the Lebanese borders.

The militant group has already lost dozens of its men in the battle for Qusayr.

Regional group declares self-government for east Libya

People wave the flag of Cyrenaica to mark the 64th anniversary of the declaration of independence by the Emirate of Cyrenaica, in Benghazi June 1, 2013.

The leader of a political group in Libya’s oil-rich Cyrenaica province declared it a self-governing region in a speech on Saturday, evidence of growing pressure for a planned new constitution to adopt a federal structure.

Ahmed Zubair al-Senussi, head of the Cyrenaica Council and a distant relative of Libya’s last king, has no formal authority under current transitional arrangements and it is not clear how he would be able to implement the declaration on the ground.

His council, however, is representative of factions in the east that have become more unified by concerns over how to establish the rule of law in a country awash with weapons and rival militias two years after the end of the war to depose Muammar Qaddafi.

The national assembly in Tripoli said it would form a committee to examine the declaration by Senussi, which included promises to form a new parliament and security force for the region.

“As of today, Cyrenaica is a federal region within the framework of the Libyan state,” Senussi said in a speech to a rally in the eastern town of al-Marj. “Cyrenaica will activate the 1951 constitution and establish a parliament.”

Calls for federal rule have become more vocal since Gaddafi’s overthrow in 2011, fuelled by familiar complaints in the east of the country that it has not been given a fair share of Libya’s wealth and the weakness of the central government.

But Senussi gave no timeline for implementing his proposals and called for the Tripoli government, which is leading the nation as it prepares to write a new constitution, to transfer money to the region.

For about 10 years after it became an independent state in1951, Libya was run along federal lines, with power devolved to Cyrenaica, the southern province of Fezzan, and Tripolitania in the west of the country.

Libya centralized its government in the last years of the rule of King Idris, and Gaddafi accelerated the process when he came to power in a military coup in 1969.

The eastern city of Benghazi was the cradle of the 2011uprising but residents now complain of Tripoli’s inability to provide security by disarming militias or moving towards writing a constitution.

Uncertainty as Palestinian PM’s term ends

 

Salam Fayyad gives a news conference in the West Bank city of Ramallah in March. Outgoing Palestinian prime minister Salam Fayyad was meeting with his cabinet on Sunday evening to discuss the way forward as his term as caretaker premier formally drew to a close.

Salam Fayyad gives a news conference in the West Bank city of Ramallah in March. Outgoing Palestinian prime minister Salam Fayyad was meeting with his cabinet on Sunday evening to discuss the way forward as his term as caretaker premier formally drew to a close.

AFP – Outgoing Palestinian prime minister Salam Fayyad was meeting with his cabinet on Sunday evening to discuss the way forward as his term as caretaker premier formally drew to a close.

Fayyad, a political independent, resigned on April 13 after months of tension with Palestinian president Mahmud Abbas, despite US efforts to keep him in place.

He stayed on in a caretaker role which formally ends on Sunday night.

But sources in the Palestine Liberation Organisation (PLO) said there had been no consultations on forming a new government so far.

Speaking on condition of anonymity, they said Fayyad’s outgoing government would meet on Sunday evening to discuss the way forward after his term in office ended.

Following Fayyad’s resignation, Abbas asked him to stay on in a caretaker role.

On April 27, Abbas announced that consultations had started to form a unity government under his own leadership, in accordance with a long-delayed reconciliation deal between his Fatah faction and the rival Islamist movement Hamas.

Palestinian Basic Law stipulates that the person charged with forming a new government then has three weeks to choose a new lineup, which can then be extended by another two if the issue is not resolved within that timeframe.

That five-week period ends at midnight on Sunday.

PLO Executive Commitee member Wasil Abu Yussef confirmed that the legal caretaker period following Fayyad’s resignation would end by Monday, and accordingly there must be a new government.

But Saleh Rafat, who also belongs to the PLO’s decision-making body, told AFP he was unaware of any factions having been consulted on the formation of a government until now.

“At the Executive Committee’s last meeting, the subject of the government was not raised,” he said.

Outgoing labour minister Ahmad al-Majdalani said it would likely mean a regular cabinet would have to be formed until the two factions managed to piece together the planned unity government.

“As long as Fatah and Hamas don’t come to an agreement and set a new timetable for their consultations, it means president Abbas will have to charge a new individual with forming a new, regular Palestinian government.”

Last month, Fatah and Hamas agreed to set a three-month timetable for forming a unity government.

Establishing a unity government and holding elections was one of the aims of a reconciliation deal the two nationalist movements signed two years ago, but it has never been implemented.

The society explained that the settlers sprayed this number of live trees with deadly chemicals in Awarta and Burin villages south of Nablus in order to annex more than 10,000 dunums of Palestinian land to the settlements Yitzhar and Itamar, who were established illegally on Palestinian lands.

Head of the municipal council in Awarta Sami Awad said that the farmers in the village cannot work about 12,000 dunums of their land which is partially located inside the fence of the illegal settlement of Itamar.

Awad added that the villages cannot access their land without prior coordination with the Israeli side and they are only allowed to harvest their lands during two days every year.
