Terrorist with a Visa

Shaykh Abdul-Muhsin al-`Ubaykaan

Those who travel to and enter non-Muslim lands under a pact of safety (Visas), how could they then prove treacherous and betray it!?

How can a Muslim not realize this?

Do you not see that if a man enters a non-Muslim country and is given a pact of safety (a visa), that this is a betrayal? Every betrayer of a trust will have a banner raised over him on the Day of Resurrection, and it will be said: ‘This is the treachery of so and so’ – by name. This would be publicized on the Day of Resurrection, because he is treacherous.

The Messenger of Allaah (صلى الله عليه وسلّم) said:

((Do not betray even those who betray you.))

Even the person who betrays you, you mustn’t betray him! But these people, how is it that they enter with a pact of safety (a visa) and then prove treacherous? This is not the way of the believers, nor is treachery a characteristic of the Prophet, may the Salaat and Salaam be upon him, or his companions, and we seek refuge with Allaah from that.

  1. Assalamu’alaikum,

    The above mentioned warning is to those who enter the lands of nonmuslims and then create havocs and destroy and cause destruction in the name of Islam. When infact a visa, that is a pact in Islam, is given to them that with the trust that they would not harm anyone in the land they are entering. But some of the khawarijees and other deviant groups they betray the trust of nonmuslims. This is to warn the khawaarijees and other deviant group who indulge in harming innocent muslims as well as nonmuslilms that none of these actions of theirs are islamic and Islam forbids those actions. As those actions oppose the teachings of Islam. As the nonmuslims grant them safety and trust them but they in turn betray this trust which leads to mistrust of other muslims living in those lands. However islamically we are obliged not to betray the trust of muslims as well as nonmuslims. The shiekh was clarifying how treacherous are the people who betray the trust of muslims as well as nonmuslim because of their deviated understanding and cause more fitnah and destruction. I hope this clarifies the context.


  3. I see. I absolutely agree and support the statement “When infact a visa, that is a pact in Islam, is given to them that with the trust that they would not harm anyone in the land they are entering”. If a ‘muslim’ harm anyone without any good reason…then he/she is not a muslim…at least…big question mark to his/her belief, imho.

    Thanks a lot…may Allah SWT protect you and put mercy on you. Amin.
