O brothers, the Muslim countries that are burning because of the Hizbiyyaat (partisanships) and the Ahzaab (parties): ask Allaah to save them (from this fitnah). And advise those from them whom you have a connection with – especially the students of knowledge – that they stay in their houses until the calamity disappears. It is upon them to stay in their houses! They should not go with so and so, nor with such and such Hizb (party).
This is the rightly-guided Caliph, ‘Uthmaan ibn ‘Affaan – may Allaah be pleased with him: the people of evil surrounded him from all sides and gathered to kill him. What did he (‘Uthmaan) say to his Companions, those who stood up to defend him? What did he say to them? He said: “I ask you by Allaah. I ask everyone who has given a pledge to me, to enter his house and close his door.” Allaahu akbar! Was there a greater fitnah than the killing of the Caliph at that moment? And yet he forbade them to participate (in this fitnah). To spare what? The blood of the Muslims! The Companions did not go shout in the streets: “Long live so and so and down with so and so.” I seek refuge with Allaah!
O brothers, this is a serious principle, by Allaah! Right now, the streets are ruined and the Muslim countries have become lost because of this illusion, because of the gathering in the streets and the uproar! Men and women! Old people, children and youth! Fear Allaah, the Mighty and Majestic!
I call the people of those countries, those to whom my voice reaches, even by way of some media. Send to them this call: I call the Muslims, and Ahlus-Sunnah in particular, that they stay in their houses until the calamity disappears. They should not go in the streets to demonstrate! Demonstrations are a Jewish principle! By Allaah, a Jewish, Masonic and Zionist principle! They are not from the religion of Allaah, the Mighty and Majestic!! And whoever gives a fatwaa saying that demonstrations are from the religion of Allaah, then he is an inventor of lies upon Allaah!! And he is someone who speaks about Allaah with other than the truth! There are no demonstrations in Islaam.
I have narrated to you the story: the Messenger of Allaah – salla Allaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam – and Banoo Haashim were imprisoned in the Shi‘b (mountain pass) of Aboo Taalib during three years. Did the Companions go to demonstrate, to get the Messenger out of this place? They did not do this! He was driven out of Makkah! Intestines were thrown at him! He was harmed! They tried to kill him! Was he (the Messenger) not able to make the all of the Companions rise and kill Abu Jahl and those with him? He was able! But Allaah has Sunan (ways) in His creation, and its not correct to go beyond it.
Pay attention, O brothers! Don’t let the hate pass over to you, while you are in this good country! Praise and thank Allaah for this blessing! Worship your Lord and praise and thank Him for the safety and security that you are in.
I call my brothers in Egypt in particular, as I called them from the Masjid of the Prophet two days ago. I call them and remind them of Allaah, stay in your houses! Beware of this hostility! Leave these demonstrations, strikes, sit-ins and destruction of properties! The Jews will exploit you! The enemies of Islaam will exploit you! Those who seek positions and leadership will exploit you! The enemies of Islaam will exploit you from every place, from the East and the West!
So return to Allaah! Stay in your houses! Lock yourselves up in your houses until you are safe. I ask Allaah, the Most Generous, the Lord of the Mighty Throne, with His Beautiful Names and Lofty Attributes, that He grants me and you success to beneficial knowledge and righteous deeds, and that He protects me, you and the Muslim countries from the fitan (trials, tribulations), that which is apparent from it and that which is hidden, and that He makes me and you from those who are saved from the Hellfire in this blessed month, for only He is worthy of this, and He alone is able to bring this to pass. And the close of our request is: All the praises and thanks are to Allaah, the Lord of the ‘Aalameen (mankind, jinn and all that exists). And may Allaah raise the rank of our Prophet Muhammed, his family and all of his Companions, grant them peace and bless them.

Advice concerning the current events in Egypt
by Shaykh Sulaymaan bin Saleemullaah ar-Ruhaylee
He says, “May Allaah bless you. Would you be so good as to give an advice to the students of knowledge in particular and the Muslims in general regarding the current events in Egypt, and is the new government seen as an Islamic government?”
Shaykh Sulaymaan ar-Ruhaylee:
I ask Allaah – the Mighty and Majestic – by His Beautiful Names and Lofty Attributes to spare the blood of the Muslims and to remove the calamity.
And there is no doubt that every possessor of sound knowledge and right understanding is happy with every deed which spares the blood of the Muslims and removes this great evil. And there is no doubt that I say: that which is obligatory upon the people of Egypt is that they strive to prevent bloodshed and to withhold from the deeds that lead to killing and to the departing of the souls (i.e. death) from all parties. For verily, the affair of blood is a very serious one!
«لَا يَزَالُ الْمُؤْمِنُ مُعْنِقًا صَالِحًا، مَا لَمْ يُصِبْ دَمًا حَرَامًا، فَإِذَا أَصَابَ دَمًا حَرَامًا بَلَّح»
“The believer will remain unburdened in righteousness as long as he does not shed prohibited blood. When he sheds forbidden blood, he will become burdened.”
And that which is established with Ahlus-Sunnah wal-Jamaa‘ah is that the ruler who took power by force, with the sword, if he took power by force and the affair is settled for him with the general people, then he becomes an Islamic ruler.
And this is why we say, O brothers: Ahlus-Sunnah wal-Jamaa‘ah might say that something is haraam (forbidden, unlawful), but they mention the fruits that are a result [of staying away from this haraam issue]. Ahlus-Sunnah wal-Jamaa‘ah do not allow to take power by force. They do not allow anyone to come and take power by force, and this is haraam! But when it happens and he gets authority, then the authority is established for this person who took power by force.
And we ask Allaah to grant the rulers of the Ummah – from our rulers and the honourable scholars who are enlightened with the Sunnah – we ask Allaah to give them success in employing the means which prevent bloodshed and remove the evil.
And the advice to the students of knowledge is, first of all, that a person should not get involved in that which is not meant for him. So that which is not meant for you, then do not involve yourself in it. And ask Allaah to give success to and guide the one who has been burdened with this affair.
And secondly: beware of oppression! Do not oppress anyone! For verily, the consequence of oppression is evil.
And thirdly: realize the good that you are in, and thank and praise Allaah for it. And cooperate with the rulers in your country and your scholars upon good. And preserve the good that is present in your country.
And if you are from the people of advising, then advise through the correct, sound and proper Legislated ways which actualize good and prevent evil.
Then: I advise the brothers to not spread the words that appear in the modern media which contain no good. Like now, we find that audio’s appear, on that which is called “Twitter”, by people who speak with false speech concerning these events. Some people spread these words with a good intention; his intent is to show its repulsiveness. But in reality he spreads it and then the shubuhaat (doubts) reach many people. Things like this, I do not view them [as permissible]. And I view that there is no problem that these words are looked at by someone from who it is known that he understands, so that he knows the reality of the affairs. As for this being spread to the general people, and these words being spread, then this entails that these evil words are spread; so you find some people speaking ill of the rulers of the Emirates because of their stance or the rulers of Saudi Arabia because of their stance, with evil and false speech! So some people spread this generally, we say that this is not permissible because it results in the spreading of this falsehood and this corruption. As for sending it to the one who knows and understands, so that he knows the reality of the affair, then it seems to me – and Allaah knows best – that there is no problem in this.
And in fact you become amazed from people who claim wasatiyyah, i‘tidaal (moderation), etc. You find them now speaking with clear and straight takfeer or indirectly suggesting [that they are disbelievers] and despising the Muslims. And speaking honestly, you find those who claim to have knowledge despising the rulers of the Emirates, despising the people of the Emirates, despising the police of the Emirates or despising the rulers of Saudi Arabia. And his speech contains much of this, and there is no doubt that his speech is from falsehood and great evil, which exposes the different kinds of people and clarifies their realities. There are many who claim to be upon wasatiyyah and i‘tidaal (moderation) and [claim to be] accurate in their speech, and in these events it becomes apparent that he is the most daring of the people [to violate] the honour of the Muslims. Why? Because they opposed him in his desires, and not [judging] from a correct Islamic perspective.
In any case: we ask Allaah – the Mighty and Majestic – to remove this calamity, to grant the people of Egypt security and peace, to aid the intelligent ones to cooperate upon warding off the evils of this fitnah and to give success to our rulers to contribute in establishing the good and keeping away the evil. And Allaah knows best.

The call of Shaykh Sâlih as-Suhaymî to the Egyptians
Shaykh Sâlih as-Suhaymî said:
This is from the signs of the Hour. That which is happening now in the Muslim countries in particular and in the countries of the world [in general], is from the signs of the hour. The Prophet – salla Allaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam – informed us about the large amount of turmoil. Sometimes the killer doesn’t know why he’s killing; he sees the people doing something so he starts shooting. As is the situation of the people of the Arab Frost (instead of Arab Spring); they are shouting to each other and braying – refuge is sought with Allaah – like the braying of the animals! And they hit each other. Why? Because of revolution, because of bread, because of hunger, because of so and so; “we want to redeem so and so”, and the one they want to redeem might be a Taaghoot from the Tawaagheet! And everyone is a shaheed (martyr) [according to them], even if he is a Christian, a Jew or a grave-worshipping polytheist! Everyone is a martyr according to them. Allaah forbid!
It is sad and regrettable that one of the “scholars” of the TV channels – and he has reached an extreme old age – says that they are shuhadaa’ (martyrs)! And he asks for shahaadah (martyrdom)… I myself have not heard him asking for martyrdom. As for him giving a fatwaa that they are martyrs, then I have heard him [saying this]. But it has been said that he says: “O Allaah! Make me a martyr like them!” And this is deviation and misguidance – refuge is sought with Allaah! Have mercy upon yourself, Yaa akhi, worship your Lord! Seek refuge with Allaah, while you are 90 years old or more. And everyone is exposed to death; the old and the young. But you come and beautify falsehood for the people?! And you dare doing the likes of these deeds? Beware, O brothers! Supplicate to Allaah for the Muslim countries where these fitan (trials, tribulations, calamities) are being spread, and supplicate to Allaah that He protects all of the Muslim countries from these fitan, in which the killer doesn’t know why he killed or the killed one why he was killed, except that he will stand before Allaah, carry his head and say to the killer: “Why have you killed me?” He will carry his head in his hands and meet Allaah – the Mighty and Majestic – and say to the killer: “Why have you killed me?”
Besides: why do you participate in this rabble-rousing? Millions [are participating]! Millions! Where is the religion?! Where is the Islaam?! Where is your intellect?!
Yaa akhi: when Sumayyah was killed in a horrible way, the Muslims did not go demonstrate and shout in the streets. When the Jews tried to kill the Prophet – salla Allaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam -, they (i.e. the Prophet and the Companions) did not demonstrate. Instead they went to do Jihaad in the Path of Allaah and drove the Jews out of al-Madeenah, with the command of the Messenger of Allaah – salla Allaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam -.
The issue is not an issue of demonstrations or… You fill up the public squares while the men are mixed with the women, and then raping takes place, violation of honour, zinaa (fornication), khumoor (alcohol), lack of shame, singing and free mixing between men and women! Is this from the religion of Allaah?! By Allaah, verily, the West beautifies this to you, O you dead people who are braying in these public squares!! They bray like the braying of the donkeys! Fear Allaah and return to your houses!! Convey to them this message! Tell them to fear Allaah and to return to their houses!! And to stay in their houses instead of this shouting, braying and barking! Fear Allaah – the Mighty and Majestic – with regards to Egypt, which – by Allaah – is beloved and of great value to us, but to many of its people it (i.e. Egypt) is not beloved and of great value, otherwise they wouldn’t have done these thing to it.
I ask Allaah to protect them from the evil of this fitnah (trial, tribulation, calamity), to return them to their senses and to keep those hiding [agitators] away from them, those who hide between them and excite these dangerous fanatical instincts.
Right now, the West manifests itself: “And we (the West) are reconciling between the Islamic Ahzaab (parties), between the Ahzaab there.” America and other than America (is doing this). You (the West) are the ones who encouraged them [to do this]!! And now they want to interfere, maa-shaa-al-Laah. Even the Jews who are occupying Palestine say: “We want to interfere to reconcile between the clashing groups in those countries.”
O people, fear Allaah! Return to your houses and this problem will be over! And be patient upon your rulers! Correct, we disapprove of their first revolt when they revolted against the first one (i.e. Mubaarak). This act of them is baatil (falsehood). But after they overcame & took power, it is obligatory that we are silent and acknowledge… Yes, we demand through the Legislated ways, not by gathering, killing and breaking into [government] buildings!
They are the Ahzaab in itself! All these Tahazzubaat (partisanships) are baatil (falsehood)! All of it is imitation of the Jews and the Christians, even if they call themselves ‘Islamic Ahzaab’. But I say: right now they have no other choice than to fear Allaah, the Mighty and Majestic! Then: according to their way – even though I do not believe in elections – they should be patient until other elections come, and then they elect other than him. Even though all of these elections in itself are Taaghoot, I do not believe in them!
But, O brothers: convey [this] to them, let them fear Allaah with regards to the blood of their brothers. Let them fear Allaah with regards to their destroyed country! Let them fear Allaah with regards to Egypt! Convey this message to them! Return to your senses! By Allaah, nobody does this; no child, no insane person and no idiot [does this]! Never! These demonstrations are the action of the idiots! The action of the insane people! The action of those who have no intellect at all! And everyone shouts the name of so and so: “Long live so and so, down with so and so.” We ask Allaah for well-being and safety.
And the religion is done; no one calls to the religion of Allaah, the Mighty and Majestic! Our brothers, who stayed away from this fitnah – and all praise is due to Allaah -, call to the religion of Allaah and call to the Sunnah. And they are safe from entering into these fitan and from participating in the killing of Muslims and non-Muslims.
I ask Allaah, the Most Generous, to be kind to the Muslim countries, to have mercy upon them and to unite their word upon Tawheed.
Return to the Sunnah, O people of Egypt!! Return to the Tawheed! Get rid of the tombs that are worshipped besides Allaah! Get rid of Hizbiyyah (partisanship) and the Ahzaab (parties)! Return to your Lord, the Glorified and Most High! And unite upon the tahqeeq (actualization) of ‘Laa ilaaha illal-Laah, Muhammadun Rasoolul-Laah”! Convey this call to them, even if [you convey it] through some websites!
I ask Allaah to be kind to the Muslims in every place. And may Allaah raise the rank of our Prophet Muhammed, his family and all of his Companions, grant them peace and bless them.

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
Don’t Listen to the Kufaar when they Provoke us against our Muslim Rulers!
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.”
