An Open Letter to Rania Al Abdullah of Jordan
In the name of The God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful.
Dear Rania Al Abdullah,
As a Muslim- and as a slave of Allah- I must advise you concerning your behavior and the behavior of your husband, Abdullah ibn Hussein.
An English translation of what Allah says in The Qur’an is:
“To Allah doth belong the dominion of the heavens and the earth, and all that is therein, and it is He who hath power over all things.” (Sura: Al Maida #5; ayah # 120)
“O ye who believe! Take not the Jews and the Christians for your friends and protectors: they are but friends and protectors to each other. And he amongst you that turns to them is of them. Verily Allah guideth not a people unjust.” (Sura Al Maida; ayah #51)
“Certainly they disbelieve who say: ‘Allah is Christ the son of Mary.’ But said Christ; ‘O children of Israel! Worship Allah, my Lord and your Lord’ whoever joins other gods with Allah,-Allah will forbid him the garden, and the fire will be his abode. There will be for the wrong-doers be no one to help. They disbelieve who say Allah is one of three for there is no God except one God. If they desist not from their word, verily a grievous chastisement will befall the disbelievers among them.” (Maida; aya’an #72-73)
“Oh you who believe! Stand out firmly for Allah, as witnesses to fair dealing, and let not the hatred of others to you make you swerve to wrong and depart from justice. Be just- that is next to piety; and fear Allah. For Allah is well acquainted with all that ye do. (Sura: Maida; ayah #8)
“Allah forgiveth not that partners should be set up with Him...” (Sura: Al Nisaa #4; ayah #48)
“Oh ye who believe! If ye obey the unbelievers, they will drive you back on your heels, and ye will turn back to your own loss.” (Sura: Al Imran #3; ayah # 149)
“O ye who believe! Devour not usury, doubled and multiplied. But fear Allah-that ye may prosper” (Sura: Al Imran; ayah #130)
“Say! ‘ O Allah1 Lord of power, thou givest power to who thou pleaseth, and thou strippest of power from whom thou pleases… verily over all things thou hast power.” (Sura: Al Imran; ayah #26)
Everyone and everything belongs to Allah. All of the earth belongs to Allah-including Jordan. Your husband-as the leader of Jordan- has a trust from Allah for which he is accountable in front of Allah on The Day of Judgment. Your husband should govern Jordan in accordance with the teachings of The Qur’an- not against the teachings of The Qur’an. Some of his policies are against The Qur’an. Therefore, he should repent to Allah and mend his ways.
“To Allah doth belong the dominion of the heavens and the earth, and all that is therein, and it is He who hath power over all things.” (Sura: Al Maida #5; ayah #120)
What are some of his policies which are against The Qur’an? One of the teachings of The Qur’an is justice.
“Oh you who believe! Stand out firmly for Allah, as witnesses to fair dealing, and let not the hatred of others to you make you swerve to wrong and depart from justice. Be just- that is next to piety; and fear Allah. For Allah is well acquainted with all that ye do. (Sura: Maida; ayah #8).
Is your husband just? No! He isn’t… He is a tyrant. Some of his policies are policies of tyranny. A leader should always be open to advice and criticism. Public criticism of a leader-or his policy- should not be criminalized. To criminalize such criticism is tyranny. There is a law in Jordan which criminalizes criticism. Any Jordanian citizen who openly criticizes your husband is risking the possibility of being arrested and jailed for two or three years.
When your husband first became the leader of Jordan he would speak passionately about the rights of citizens-yet, he has violated those rights time and time again. An example of this is his policy against anyone who criticizes the policy of other countries. Within the last few months a Jordanian Muslim brother-Zaki Bani Rsheid- was arrested for posting an article on the internet which criticized the government of the United Arab Emirates. This is clearly tyranny… but it is more than that. This Muslim brother was obeying Allah, and because of his obedience to Allah he was arrested!
Some other policies which are against The Qur’an include: involvement in Riba; sanctioning and supporting the tyranny of the regimes of other countries; indirectly approving of kufr through his friendship with The Pope; being involved in idolatry through not destroying statues which are in Jordan; a peace treaty with The Zionists, and involving Jordanian soldiers in situations that they shouldn’t be in.
Involvement in Riba:
Allah makes it clear in The Qur’an that trade is trade and that riba is riba. These are two completely different things. Any amount of interest is riba- even a Qursh, or Fil of interest is riba. It is not acceptable for any Muslim country to be involved in Riba -no matter how small it may be.
Jordan is involved with The IMF (International Monetary Fund). Any loans from The IMF is unacceptable. Why? Because any loan involves interest; and any interest-of any amount- is riba. Anyone who is involved with riba is risking Allah’s anger. Your husband and his administration should not get any loans from The IMF. He should stop paying any money to The IMF.
Sanctioning and Supporting Tyranny:
Al-Sisi of Egypt is a tyrant who has imprisoned the democratically elected President of Egypt. He has slaughtered hundreds (perhaps thousands) of Egyptian civilians on the streets of Egypt just because they peacefully protested against him. He has also jailed large numbers of civilians for speaking up against him; as well as journalists who dared to write the truth about what was happening in Egypt.
Your husband and his administration has approved of Al-Sisi’s behavior in two separate occasions.
The first occasion was when your husband went to Egypt to congratulate Al-Sisi on his being “elected”. In Al-Sisi’s attempt to validate his criminal behavior he held a farcical election-an election in which more than ninety percent of the Egyptian people boycotted. In boycotting that election the Egyptians overwhelmingly rejected Al-Sisi and his behavior.
The second occasion was when Al-Sisi came to Jordan to talk to your husband about being allies in fighting against “terrorism”. Such talk is hypocritical. Al-Sisi, himself, is a terrorist. And your husband is supportive of his terrorism. Allah says in The Qur’an that anyone who is supportive of any evil shall bear the burden of that evil. Your husband is supportive of Al-Sisi’s evil-therefore, according to The Qur’an, your husband is an accomplice to Al-Sisi’s evil behavior.
Approving of Kufr:
Is your husband a Muslim? Really? Than why is he sanctioning kufr? Through your husband’s friendship with The Pope he is sanctioning kufr. Anyone who thinks that Prophet Isa (Jesus) is The God is making kufr with The God. The Pope not only is making kufr himself; but he is promoting kufr.
Involvement in Idolatry:
There is an idol in Jordan-it is in a place called Karama. All statues are idols. Your husband and his administration should publicly destroy this idol. Prophet Muhammad destroyed the idols that were in The Kaaba. There should be no idols/statues in any Muslim country- such a thing is unacceptable.
Peace Treaty with the Zionists:
What should I say about this? Where should I begin? Palestine is a Muslim country whose borders are from the river to the sea. The Israeli State has absolutely no legitimacy. The Israeli State is a product of colonialism. The U.N. has never had the authority to create nation-states.
The Israeli State is a mafia that has been committing state terrorism against The Palestinian people for decades. It has been stealing land and victimizing civilians-for decades!
The very idea of any Muslim making a peace treaty with such an entity-much less being a friend to it-is absurd. Is your husband a Muslim? Why is he helping the Zionists to commit atrocities against Palestinian civilians? With all the evil that The Zionists have done- and still are doing- why is he a friend of theirs?
Involving Jordanian Soldiers in Situations Outside of Jordan:
Jordanian soldiers should not be involved in any action outside of Jordan. Their involvement in such countries as: Afghanistan and Syria is irresponsible. They should not be used as expendable pawns for the agenda of The New World Order.
What is my advice to you? You are a representative of your husband and his administration. As his representative, you are accountable in front of Allah for whatever evil he does. You should be outspoken against that evil. For example: You should be outspoken against your husband’s tyranny. If you do not speak up against it-than you are an accomplice to it.
“If Allah touch thee with affliction, none can remove it but He…He is Supreme over His servants. And He is The Wise, acquainted with all things” (translation of Qur’an; Sura: Al-Anam #6; Aya’an #17-18)
“He is supreme over his servants, and He sets guards over you…Say, He hath power to send calamities on you from above and below…” (translation of Qur’an: Sura: Al- Anam #6;Ayat #61-65)
