Message from Imam Suhaib on Egypt (Share Your Comments!)

With the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful. Peace and blessings of Allah upon our master, Muhammad ﷺ and those who follow him until the end of time.

Dear brothers and sisters,
Asalamu `alaykum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh.

It is with tempered happiness, touched hearts and tears of joy that we congratulate the Egyptian people on their victory over oppression. It is a blessed month, in which many of us honor the birth of our Prophet ﷺ. And, from this day forward, insha’Allah, we will recall the birth of a new mindset in the Middle East. Ahmed Shawqi wrote, “Egypt is history….so look at her and read it!”

Truly, the Egyptian people have captured our hearts. Their love for freedom, dedication to each other irregardless of religion, and the pursuit of a free life, are truly admirable. Without “Operation Freedom,” “Autocratic thugs,” and “Irresponsible extremist theology,” but, “Allah does not change a people until they change themselves,” they were able to bring change. At, the majority of us have lived, studied, cried and laughed in Egypt, and our relation is that of close cousins. We have called for a “Global Qiyam” this weekend and encourage all to take part begging Allah to assist the plight of the oppressed wherever they are.

Finally, while we celebrate the political death of an oppressor, let us reflect on the happiness when, insha’Allah, we enter Paradise and see our Prophet (peace be upon him). In order for that to happen, we must rise against what Shaykha Muslema al-Azhariya coined “the inner Mubarak!” Just as the Egyptians were empowered to initiate change in their country, we must seize the opportunity to change ourselves and rise up against the oppressive nature of our souls! God bless the Egyptians, accept their efforts and make this an example of change for the rest of the world.

Please leave your message of support, supplication and congratulations to the people of Egypt!

    Congratulations to the Egyptian people; what an accomplishment. Sticking together, having faith in the actions you took, and most importantly, God; showing support for one goal, and patience, got you freedom so quickly. All in three weeks! May God bless you all; your pharoah has gone down!!!

    Man of the Year “EGYPTIAN”, if not decades!

    enough said.

  3. Dave says:

    The Egyptians have inspired the ummah of Muhammad (may blessings and peace be upon him) that subjugation is not inevitable. May Allah open the hearts of all Muslims to assist them in that which is good, for we are one ummah! May Allah hold back the hands of those who would seek to reverse the direction of this revolution, whether from the ranks of the Muslims or from without! Ya Fattah Ya Salam! Allahumma salli ‘ala sayyidina Muhammad wa aalihi wa sallim!

  4. Mabrook! says:

    Prayers, pride, strength, and solidarity to the Egyptian people as they celebrate their victory. May G-d make the road ahead easy for them and replace the pharoah who was thrown out with a leader who listens to the people and may G-d watch over them as they journey on to rebuild their country. I can’t express all the emotions I feel, but as a new dawn shines upon Egypt let us remember those who lost their lives. Learn their faces and names:

    Remember them!

    Egypt is FREE! <3

  14. Subhan says:

    Allahu Akbar!

  15. Indeed this is a time for the awakening of people. It is amazing how the imagine on this post resembles the uniting of religion to bring about a change – As the West continue to divide the religion further the Egyptian revolution has taught them a big lesson – The Revolution by all means in not over – the first step to remove a 30 year old rule.

    For those enemies of Humanity – the revolution sweeping Middle East and Africa is one not to be reckon with.

  16. Ines says:

    congratulations to the egyptian people! subhanAllah.

  17. Fouad says:

    May Allah sustain this glorious victory of the Egyptian people, as brother Suhaib said: let us seize this moment and rise above our own inner Mubarak, wherever we may be. Ameen.

  18. Riaz says:

    Assalam alikum,

    Congratulations Egypt!! Lets hope for a new dawn in middle east Insha Allah

  19. Omar says:

    I remember the first emotional aspect of this revolution for me was hearing about how people took it upon themselves to stop looters, protecting not just their own property but any property. I remembered then the Ayah, “they plot and Allah plans, and Allah is the best of planners”

    The regime thought they would show people that they are dependent on them and their corrupt police for security, and without any time to plan they spontaneously came together and stepped up to fill the void in a way that some said they never felt more secure before.

    However, the most emotionally touched I have felt is seeing footage of young men sweeping the streets of Tahrir square, and others attempting to erase grafitti sprayed on walls. My eyes tear up, because when we start treating our streets and public spaces as owr own home… imagine what kind of a bright future lay ahead of us, with Allah’s mercy and pleasure at what these youth are doing?

  20. Surya Dharma says:

    Mabruk to the people of Egypt! What a blessing to be “re-born” in the favored month of Milad al-Nabi. May it be the First Spring of a new era for all Egyptians. May Allah grace the citizens with diligence, patience, wisdom, and gentleness to meet the challenges ahead.

  21. Aziza says:

    As salamu alaykum,

    Al hamdullilah. Egypt is finally free. We are finally free. This is not just thanks to the people’s persistence, but also of everybody’s duaa for our country. From the US to Mecca, everybody was praying for Misr.
    It’s still too much to take and unbelievable for us living here: everywhere we go there is a celebration, you look at people and they are smiling and you can see the relief on their faces.
    Al hamdullilah.
    I am happy to be an Egyptian, also humbled because it’s Allah SWT Who has made it happen.

    Inch’Allah, our children will have a bright future in this free country.

  22. Shafani says:

  23. Gabriel Hernandez says:

  28. abdullah says:

    Allahu Akbar! May Allah grant peace and security and righteous leadership!

  29. Assalamu Alaikum.
    I think it is only my Egyptian Mother in law who is so sad he left. She feels that he should have stepped down in dignity and she cried so much, because she has frail health all her children have to say, “Okay ma ma you are right.” I don’t think she is the majority but I do think elderly feel that stepping down in dignity may have been the better choice.

  30. Heba Salah says:

    It is not a victory for the Egyptians only,, it is for the whole Muslim ummah.
    We must be smart enough and know that this did not happrn by chance. It is the will of Allah to help Egyptians in the blessed month of His Prophet’s noble birth to give us the lesson: live you lives from now on on the footsteps of the beloved salla Allahu alaihi wa sallam. I hope that all Muslims realize this as i do since the beging of our blessed uprising.
    May Allah reward you all good brother Suhaib for your great message.
    Your (Egyptian) Student

  31. Noha says:

    Though I did not have the honor of taking an active part in this glorious revolution, I was with with the heores and martyrs of Tahrir with my heart and soul. I will be eternally indebted to them for reminding me that when there is a will, there’s a way and most important that Allah helps those who help themselves. The taste of victory over tyranny is indeed very sweet. But let us not forget in our happiness that the road ahead is long and fraught with hardships–We need to hold on to and fight for our beliefs all the way. Viva Egypt!
