Where is your Gheera (Honorable Jealousy), Oh Salafees?!

“Should we be scared while the Qur’an and Sunnah are with us? Shame on us!? We are Salafees! And we are scared to defend the truth while the people of falsehood encourage themselves in their defense of falsehood? There is no blessing from Allaah in this life for a fearful and chicken-hearted person – no blessing in this life!
This life isn’t just about a desire for drink and food! By the Lord of the Ka’bah!
Either I live as a Salafee with my head held high, defending the da’wah of Prophet Muhammad, salallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, defending the narrations of the Salaf and defending the scholars of our time, the scholars of the Sunnah such as Al-Albaanee, Ibn Baaz, Ibnul-‘Uthaimeen, Shaikh Al-Fawzaan, Shaikh al-Ghudayaan, Shaikh al-Luhaydaan, Shaikh Rabee’ and others amongst the scholars of Salafiyyah who have propogated this Da’wah, otherwise, no! There is no good in us!
There is no good in us! By the Lord of the Ka’bah!
I am amazed!
Why such relentlessness against the Da’wah Salafiyyah?!
Why such relentlessness against the Salafees?!
Why so much praise for the people of bid’ah?!
Why is all this happening?!
Where is your Gheera (Honorable Jealousy), oh you who affirm that Allaah is above His Throne?!
Where is your Gheera (Honorable Jealousy), oh you who affirm that Allaah is above?!
Where is your Gheera (Honorable Jealousy), oh you who affirm that there is neither benefit nor harm except from Allaah?!
Oh you who do not invoke for aid nor in distress except Allaah (alone)!
(Oh you) who considers the prohibition of amulets and that we must swear by Allaah alone, where is your Gheera (Honorable Jealousy)?!
When you are seeing your Imams – those who call to the same Da’wah as yours – being blamed and criticized, while those who praise the deniers of the Istiwaa` – and claim that Allaah is ‘everywhere’ – have become Imams?
Where is your Gheera (Honorable Jealousy), oh my brother?!
Is that where we are?! Have we dropped to this point?!
The one who clings to this Religion becomes stronger, while the one who abandons it (becomes) weak! This Religion is a Paradise; the one who follows its path will succeed, but the one who abandons it will be lost.
He is The Lord, The Noble, free from any imperfection and Exalted is He! The one who sticks to His commands, his strength will be tenfold and he will become powerful by the power of Allaah and His favour.
Otherwise, he has no good in this life.
Nowadays, our scholars get accused of many things, our mashayikh get accused of many crimes, and it is the modern-day Khawaarij, the modern-day Mu’tazila, and the modern-day Ash’aria who have become the Imams?!
Have they become heroic combatants and brave men?! [No!]
But they just want to kill you, oh Salafiyyoon. They want you to quit your Salafiyyah!
But remain steadfast upon it! You have the Adila (proofs) with you; don’t be deceived by their words!
Imam al-Awaza’ee said:
‘Adhere to the narrations (aathar) of the Salaf (the Prophet and Sahaaba), even if the people were to abandon you. And beware of the opinions of people, no matter how much they beautify it with speech.'”
