Don’t Listen to the Kufaar when they Provoke us against our Muslim Rulers! – Shaikh Saalih al-Fawzaan
Bismillaah Al-Hamdulillaah wa salatu wa salaamu ‘ala rasulullaah
Shaikh Saalih al-Fawzaan (hafidhahullaah Ta’aala) insightfully exposed the falsehood of the Disbelievers while addressing which of the two was asked for first between security and sustenance:
“Allaah, The Most High, said:
وَإِذْ قَالَ إِبْرَاهِيمُ رَبِّ اجْعَلْ هَذَا بَلَدا آمِنا ً وَارْزُقْ أَهْلَه مِنَ الثَّمَرَاتِ مَنْ آمَنَ مِنْهُمْ بِاللَّهِ وَالْيَوْمِ الآخِرِ
And (remember) when Ibraaheem (Abraham) said, ‘My Lord, make this city (Makkah) a place of security and provide its people with fruits, such of them as believe in Allaah and the Last Day.’… (Al-Baqarah, ayah 126)
Indeed, he (Ibraheem) gave priority to security (in his supplication) over seeking sustenance, because security is a necessity. Security is a necessity, and the people cannot enjoy sustenance alongside fear. Rather, sustenance cannot be reached in the presence of fear.
And this is what the enemies desire, those who try to destablize the Muslim societies. They wish to disassociate the Muslims from their unity behind the Muslim rulers. This is what they desire, and they do not desire good advice for the Muslims. (They wish to disassociate the Muslims from their unity behind the Muslim rulers) in the name of actualizing beneficial affairs, rectification, removal of oppression, and the likes.
All of this is lies and false pretences.
Because if the rulership slips away, chaos will be at large, corruption will spread, and the beneficial affairs which they say will be actualized will be non-existent. Corruption would be at large and there will Not be rectification.
Therefore, for this reason there has to be rulership upon which the Muslims unite. And even if (such rulership) has shortcomings and (affairs pertaining to) negligence, the people should exercise patience. Because in exercising patience, there is a prevention of that which is more severe and harmful.
Shaikh-ul-Islaam Ibn Taymiyyah (rahimahullaah) said:
‘It is not known of a group that rose against their Muslim ruler, except that their state of affairs – after his removal – was more evil than their state of affairs while he was present.’
And this is something experienced at present.
The rulers and heads of state who have been removed, what is the state of affairs of their countries after they were (removed)? There has not ceased to be fear, anxiety, chaos, blooshed, etc… And you know that.”
