Helping the oppressed in view of holy Quran

   Author: مکبر 3    Issue:Quran ،

Nowadays in some places on the earth there are cruelties done to the oppressed people, for example the people of Palestine or Lebanon or Bahrain or Libya or Yemen etc. some of these nations are not Shia, the question is why we should help them? Does Islam have any order in this regard?

When we refer to the holy Quran we see that in some verses Allah talked about the cruelty and oppression.

In chapter Nisa verse 75 we read:

وَمَا لَكُمْ لاَ تُقَاتِلُونَ فِی سَبِیلِ اللّهِ وَالْمُسْتَضْعَفِینَ مِنَ الرِّجَالِ وَالنِّسَاء وَالْوِلْدَانِ الَّذِینَ یَقُولُونَ رَبَّنَا أَخْرِجْنَا مِنْ هَذِهِ الْقَرْیَةِ الظَّالِمِ أَهْلُهَا وَاجْعَل لَّنَا مِن لَّدُنكَ وَلِیًّا وَاجْعَل لَّنَا مِن لَّدُنكَ نَصِیرًا

“So why is it, that you do not fight in the way of Allah, and for the abased among men, women, and children who say: ‘our lord, bring us out from this village whose people are oppressors, and give to us a guardian from you, and give to us a helper from you.”...

When we refer to the words of the commander of the faithful Imam Ali (peace be upon him) in different places, we see the emphasis of the Imam on helping the oppressed against the oppressor.

In the last moments of his life, he had some advices to his children, and among them he said:

{کُونا لِلظّالِمِ خَصماً وَ لِلْمَظْلُومِ عَوناً {1

“Be the enemy for the oppressor and be the supporter for the oppressed.”

Another place is which the Imam is describing the reason of accepting to be the governor, he said:
“I was not the seeker of the government on you, and the thing that forces me to accept it is the covenant that Allah has taken from the Olama(scholars) of every nation, not to be silent before the gluttony of the oppressors and the hunger of the oppressed ones.”

You know that Imam Ali really was a person of justice and this is something that is accepted even by his enemies.

You know those who are oppressors and consider themselves upper than others, always are against the justice, so you see that the ones who were against the prophets of Allah and divine religions were the oppressors, because they were seeing their interests exposed to danger.
