A Special Message, "betray not your treaties!"

For Muslims, distinctiveness and conviviality are two sides of the same coin: Muslims are ordered by ALLAH toward both when HE ordered Muhammad (Peace be upon the messenger of ALLAH) to say:     

                 “Unto you your religion, and unto me my religion”   Qur'an 109:6.     

A forthright look into history of Muslim governance will reveal Muslims to be pinnacle in multiculturalism throughout our 1400 year history.

"Oh ALLAH, grant that the people of the great State of New York see the Muslims of the State of New York as people loving YOUR religion and loving YOUR order to have convivial with our neighbors. Aameen/Amen!"

    Yet, keep your American treaty:

Muslims residing here in the USA are asked in our religion to treat USA as a "Land of Treaty".  That is, as a Muslim, I am able to live here in USA and practice my religion of Islam; since I am able to practice my religion of Islam, I am therefore permitted in my religion to make the treaty of "citizenship" (or visa) with the Federal USA government.  ALLAH says in the Qur'an that Muslims are ordered by ALLAH to follow the “treaties” for which we have given our promise.  The following is the sign where ALLAH says to keep our "treaties":     

“It is not Al-Birr [piety, righteousness, and each and every act of obedience to ALLAAH] that you turn your faces towards east or west [in prayers]; but Al-Birr is the one who believes in ALLAH, the Last Day, the Angels, the Book, the Prophets, and gives his wealth (for the sake of HIM), to the kinsfolk, to the orphans, and to Al-Masaakiin [the poor], and to the wayfarer, and to those who ask, and to set slaves free, performs As-Salaat [formal prayer connecting to ALLAH], and gives the Zakaat, and who fulfill their treaties when upon their promise, and who are As-Saabiriin [the patient (plural form)] in extreme poverty and ailment and in a time of war. Such are the people of the truth and they are Al-Muttaquun [pious]”   Qur'aan 2:177.     

Therefore, all the rights and obligations of citizenship are an obligation upon the Muslim by the religion of Islam. This includes the rights of one American resident upon another American resident.  Likewise and in general, the laws and procedures of the Federal, State, County, City, and Neighborhood Association are an obligation for the Muslim.  In Muslim jurisprudence, the scope and precedence of ALLAH's order to follow "treaty" is a strong obligation for the Muslim.  In particular, that strong obligation may be seen when ALLAH says in the Qur'aan 16:91 that ALLAH is a witness over covenants and oaths -- a link to this sign in the Qur'an.

    And, Betrayal of Treaties and/or Treason is Prohibited:

Betrayal is explicitly prohibited, as ALLAH has said     

“ ... Lo! ALLAH loves not those who betray (or commit acts of treason)”  Qur'an 8:58. 

    These words of ALLAH prohibit the Muslim USA citizen (and visa holder) from doing any or being involved in any act of terrorizes other fellow USA citizens. The combination this Ayah and the pair from the preceding paragraphs are a broad prohibition on terrorism, vigilantism, sabotage, et cetera     -- such are against the treaty of citizenship.     

    “Oh ALLAH, grant that our neighbors hear our hope in YOU; and in that hope, that our wish for conviviality by our obeisance to YOU is pinnacle,         for YOU are The Power and The Glory forever. Aameen/Amen!”
