Many Muslims who were weak and enslaved suffered inhumane persecutions in the early days of Islam. Yet, they remained steadfast and brave in their belief in Islam and support of Prophet Muhammad (S). Khabbab bin Al-Aratt (R) was one of these oppressed believers who had no hope of protection or safety except for their strong belief in Allah’s salvation. Khabbab (R) rose from the degrading life of slavery to become a teacher of Allah’s revelation and a warrior in the cause of Allah’s religion.

 



The book deals with the concept of Loving for the sake of Allah and hating for the sake of Allah. It was originally submitted for a Masters Degree at the Department of Aqeedah Umm al Qorah University in Makkah. The subject matter of this work is of paramount importance and utmost interest for two major reasons: Firstly, it is concerned with one of Islam’s main foundations, namely the qualities of al-wala’ wa’1-bara’, which are two major prerequisites of true faith: al-wala’ is a manifestation of sincere love for Allah, His prophets and the believers; al-bara’, on the other hand, is an expression of enmity and hatred towards falsehood and its adherents. Both are evidence of iman. Secondly, it has been written at a very crucial time: everything has become so mixed up that some Muslims are no longer aware of those qualities which distinguish the believers from the non-believers; their faith has become so weak that they have adopted patterns of behaviour that are absolutely repugnant to a sincere believer; they have taken the disbelievers as their friends, while displaying enmity towards many of the believers by disparaging their character and degrading them.

 



Islam stands for change. It seeks to change the individual and the society. This change covers every aspect of human life: from personal morality to business, economics and politics. It is only natural that Islam should be fought by those who want to keep the status quo. This is the way it has always been throughout history: from Adam to Nuh, Ibrahim, Musa, Isa, and Muhammad (peace be on them). It will happen to anyone who wants to stand up and proclaim the true message of Islam to the world.
