Putin: I agree to have a dinner with You on one condition
Vladimir Putin met with Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdogan at BRICS summit in Johannesburg. They discussed cooperation in fields of tourism, trade, and culture and even told jokes. Putin reminded his Turkish counterpart that he promised to invite Putin to a restaurant. Erdogan immediately responded to it by inviting Putin to a dinner, for what the Russian president replied with irony: “Yes, but we agreed that we will come only when your restaurants will have our meat”, Putin said. “I will wait for you with pleasure”, Erdogan agreed about opening of his country’s market for Russia… When I first read this article, I thought: “Will Putin really make it a condition that Erdogan should raise a glass with him at dinner?” But after reading over the article, I realized that the condition is much worse. If Putin would force only one of Muslim leaders to drink alcohol with him, then only that leader would sin. However, Putin wants to lead into sin not only his “friend”, but also wants to saturate food of all Muslims with forbidden so that their prayers would be useless and so that they would come to the Judgment Day empty-handed. As the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessing of Allah be upon him) said, ” لاَ يَدْخُلُ الجَنَّةَ لحمٌ نبَت مِن سُحْتٍ” “Meat grown on forbidden will not enter the Paradise” (I.e. A man whose body has a meat grown by means of forbidden will not enter the Paradis) (Narrated by Ahmad) As you can see, we offer our hand to enemy but he grabs our elbow… Allah the Almighty demands us to be watchful and warns us from consequences of friendship with enemies. Although Erdogan does not drink alcohol (maybe only in public?), however, under pressure of large Kufr states, he obediently acts in contradiction to Islam. So, in the same way that Erdogan secretly negotiates with “Israel”, he might easily make dealing with Russia and inflict damage to purity and belief of Muslims. People say, “Tell me who is your friend and I will tell you who you are”. Thus, a leader who becomes friends with the enemy of Islam and satisfies him, agreeing with all his conditions only to save his position, is a hypocrite. “Give tidings to the hypocrites that there is for them a painful punishment. Those who take disbelievers as allies instead of the believers” (4:138). Such leader puts his own interests above everything in all relations with the Kufr. Alcohol trade in the country, coast beaches where genitals of people are completely uncovered, legal prostitution… all this is the consequence of that a hypocrite is ruling Muslims. Therefore, unless a Khilafah state is restored and unless strict food control is established at state borders and inside the country, these false-Muslim rulers will commit everything they wish. Will we really trust and expect goodness from this false system and from these hypocrite rulers?! It is time to learn how to identify who is your friend, and who is your enemy. “Tell me who is your friend and I will tell you who you are!” Assalamu alaikum. Munavvara.
