THE TURMOIL IN EGYPT

 
THE TURMOIL IN EGYPT

 
By Shaikh Abdullah Faisal
18 August 2013 (Evening Dars)
Notes typed by AT6 / AT8
Edited by AT6


 
- Our topic today is to do with FIQH AL WAAQI’ (knowledge of current events).
- It is Haraam for a sheikh to pass a fatwa until he has Fiqh Al Waaqi’.
- We pay attention to Fiqh Al Waaqi’ because those who are not concerned about the affairs of the Ummah are not from us.
 
It was narrated from Abd-Allaah ibn Masood (RA) that the Prophet (SAW) said: "Whoever starts his day caring about something other than Allaah has nothing to do with Allaah, and whoever does not care about the Muslims is not one of them." [Narrated by al-Haakim in al-Mustadrak (4/356)]
 
- It is appropriate to speak on the turmoil in Egypt because there are huge demonstrations across the world against the junta in Egypt.
- The reason for these demonstrations is because according to the rules of democracy you can only remove a leader using the ballot box.
- You are not allowed to use a military junta to remove a democratically elected leader.
 
- The Muslims want to play by the game of democracy but this is the game of the Kuffaar.
- The Kuffaar appoint the referee so if you score a goal they are going to give you a red card or change the goal post.
- Every Kaafir is a hypocrite and every hypocrite is a Kaafir.
 
- Kaafirs are liars.
- They even lie on Allah!
- They say God beget a son.
- Therefore it's not possible for you to beat them at their own game.
 
- You are not allowed to use Kufr (democracy) to replace Kufr like what the Brotherhood is trying to do.
- This is what the Free Syrian Army is trying to do too.
- The Brotherhood is trying to use Kufr to establish Islam.
- This is not our Manhaj and it will never be our Manhaj.
 
- A popular revolt brought down Hosni Mubarak in February 2011.
- Sometimes you need several revolutions to establish Islam.
- A general election brought Morsi to power in June 2012.
- He was the first democratically elected president in the history of Egypt.
 
- When Morsi came to power, he didn't get any support from Europe or the Gulf countries.
- They all withheld their financial aid.
- They were desperate to see the government of Morsi fail.
- They want to say that Islam is not workable.
 
- The only Arab countries that wanted Morsi to succeed were Qatar and Turkey.
- Aljazeera supports Morsi till today.
- The media is polarised for those who want to see Morsi succeed and for those who want to see Morsi fail so the people are polarised too.
 
- The Jews in Israel complained about the Islamic government of Morsi.
- They were shocked to see that the first democratically elected president of Egypt was an Islamist.
- The first thing Morsi did when he came to power was to open the Rafah border.
- The Jews complained a lot of weapons were being smuggled into Gaza through this border.
- The government of Morsi was a threat to Israel.
 
- The US secretly funded NGOs to bring down the government of Morsi because of the complaint of the Jews.
- Many people are asking why the US is refusing to call what took place in Egypt a coup.
- They refused to call it a coup because they themselves financed the coup with NGOs.
 
- Morsi got rid of Tantawi and brought in Sisi.
- People warned Morsi about Sisi and Sisi stabbed him in the back.
 
- If the US called it a coup, they would not be able to give the military government 1.5 billion dollars because it would be a bastard government.
- This is according to the rules of democracy.
- The population of Egypt is 90 million.
- So what the US was giving to Egypt was nothing; it was chicken feed.
- The Saudis, Kuwaitis and the UAE said they'll give the military 12 billion dollars if it brings down the government in Egypt.
 
- The same people who wanted to force Morsi from power are now against the military because they didn't expect such brutality from the military.
- Egypt is the land of the Pharaoh, the most evil man.
- You shouldn't be surprised about the cruelty of the Egyptian military.
 
- The white people of Europe and America are very vocal against the cruelty of the Egyptian military.
- The first reason why the Egyptian army is worse than the Kuffaar in their cruelty towards the Muslims is because APOSTATES ARE THE WORST KUFFAAR.
- The second reason is because the DESERT ARABS ARE THE WORST KUFFAAR.
 
The bedouins are the worst in disbelief and hypocrisy, and more likely to be in ignorance of the limits (Allah's Commandments and His Legal Laws, etc.) which Allah has revealed to His Messenger. And Allah is All-Knower, All-Wise. (At-Tawbah 9:97)
 
- There is a wind of change blowing throughout the Muslim world and people are becoming more Islamic.
- People prefer Islamic parties over secular parties.
- The Saudis are terrified of political Islam reaching their shores.
- This is why they promised 12 billion dollars together with Kuwait and the UAE to crack down on the Brotherhood even if it means a massacre.
- Political Islam is a threat to their monarchy.
 
- Even the Madkhalis stabbed the Brotherhood in the back and sided with the secularist party to bring Morsi down.
- Any party that campaigns against sharia, the Saudi Salafis will rally behind them.
 
- They are so vehement against political Islam because if we should reinstate the Caliphate, the Saudis and the Kuwaitis would have to share their wealth with the rest of the Muslims.
- You can't have so many playboy princes gambling, spending money on alcohol and wasting money anymore.
- Khilafah means the reserves of Saudi Arabia and Kuwait will be taken away.
- Political Islam is coming to change the status quo.
 
- The problem we have with the military junta in Egypt is the use of the word ‘terrorist’ even though the people were participating in peaceful demonstrations.
- A Kaafir and a munaafiq use the word terrorist to label our brothers and sisters in Egypt and then they start a massacre.
- They use this word for their own political advantage.
 
- Another word they used to label the protesters was ‘Al Qaeda’.
- They said Al Qaeda was behind the demonstrations.
- They are not very good liars.
- Al Qaeda doesn't believe in democracy.
- Al Qaeda don't talk, they act.
- They blow you up with IEDs.
- Al Qaeda doesn't believe in the ballot; they believe in the bullet.
- The Brotherhood are sitting ducks being massacred by the Junta.
 
- In 1998 Shaikh gave a speech in the presence of Abu Hamza called ‘Democracy the Greatest Shirk’.
- The people thought Shaikh was crazy because they thought democracy is Islam.
- Democracy is an aristocracy which practises the most vile form of hypocrisy.
 
- The Brotherhood went wrong by trying to use Kufr (democracy) to establish Islam.
- You can't mix truth with falsehood.
- Another way the Brotherhood went wrong was by not doing what Allah commanded them to do in the Holy Quran in Surah 8:60.
- You were commanded by Allah to establish a military wing.
 
And make ready against them all you can of power, including steeds of war (tanks, planes, missiles, artillery, etc.) to threaten the enemy of Allah and your enemy, and others besides whom, you may not know but whom Allah does know. And whatever you shall spend in the Cause of Allah shall be repaid unto you, and you shall not be treated unjustly. (Al-Anfal 8:60)
 
- Ikhwanul Muslimeen didn't act upon Surah 8:60.
- The military massacre them because they don't have a military wing.
 
Uqbah bin Amir (RA) narrated: 'I heard the Messenger of Allah (SAW) and he was on the minbar when he read the verse: "(And make ready against them all you can of power, including steeds of war...) [8:60], Verily strength is in throwing (i.e. shooting), verily strength is in throwing, verily strength is in throwing.” [Sahih Muslim (3/1522) No. 1917, Musnad Ahmad (4/156) No. 17468, Sunan Abu Dawud (3/13) No. 2514, Sunan Tirmidhi (5/270) No. 3083, Sunan Ibn Majah (4/91) No. 2813, Sunan al-Darime (2/269) No. 2404]
 
- You take your women and children to demonstrate but you didn't do what Allah commanded you to do in Surah 8:60 so you shouldn't expect anything but a massacre.
 
- The Arab states are practicing nothing but a sham.
- They don't want sharia on their shores because they would have to share their wealth.
- Khilaafa is a swear word in Saudi Arabia.
- The wealth of some Arab leaders is so big they can't list it on the Forbes magazine.
 
- The Muslim world is currently polarised between two camps: those who want Islam and those who don't want it.
- Egypt is not the only place that is in turmoil.
 
Syria is also in turmoil
- There will be two revolutions in Syria.
- Now it is Sunni vs. Shia.
- The second revolution will be Sunnis vs. Sunnis.
- Some Sunnis want Sharia and other Sunnis don't want it.
- Bahrain is another country in turmoil.
 
Lebanon is in turmoil
- Lebanon was a part of Syria; it is a newly invented matter.
- Anything that happens in Syria will affect Lebanon.
- A huge bomb took place in Lebanon recently.
- In Lebanon you have 18 different religions.
- There was a bloodbath there in the 1980s because of all the different religions there.
 
Pakistan is in turmoil
- Pakistan is a cocktail.
- A typical Pakistani is either a Barelvi, a Goofi Sufi, a Tableeghi, a Qadiyani, or a Christian.
- Whenever a country is a cocktail of different aqeedahs, that country is automatically in turmoil.
 
Iraq is in turmoil.
- Sunnis and Shias are killing each other.
 
Bangladesh is in turmoil.
- There is a massacre taking place in Bangladesh.
- It is between the ruling party and those who want sharia.
- In all these Muslim countries, there is a battle between two camps: THE PARTY OF ALLAH and THE PARTY OF SHAITAAN.
 
Algeria is in turmoil
- What took place in Egypt is called de javu.
- The exact same thing took place in Algeria in 1988-1989.
- FIS won a landslide victory in Algeria but the army didn't allow them to take office.
 
- You are spending a lot of money to campaign in an election and then the army forces you out of office.
- You are wasting Muslim money.
- Why didn't you do what Allah told you to do in Surah 8:60 (establish a military wing)?
- You are wasting money and the wasters are the brothers of the shaitaan.
 
Verily, spendthrifts are brothers of the Shayatin (devils), and the Shaitan (Devil ¬ Satan) is ever ungrateful to his Lord. (Al-Isra 17:27)
 
- You don't believe in jihad and you don't prepare for it so you are nothing but sitting ducks to be killed by the Kuffaar.
- What is happening in Egypt already took place in Algeria.
- So you are not a believer because a believer isn’t bitten from the same hole twice.
 
Abu Huraira (RA) narrated the Prophet (SAW) said: "A believer is not bitten from the same hole twice.” [Related by al-Bukhari (6133) and Muslim (2998)]
 
- Who told you you are allowed to use democracy to establish Islam?
- Who told you you are allowed to abandon what Allah told you to do in Surah 8:60 (establish a military wing)?
- Who told you you are allowed to use the ballot instead of the bullet?
- The way forward is the bullet not the ballot.
 
- Prince Al-Waleed bin Talal fired Sheikh Tareq Al-Suwaidan from his TV channel, Al-Risalah, because he was supportive of Morsi.
- Prince Al-Waleed is a playboy prince who has a hatred for Islam.
- A white woman went to his palace and he was offended by her abaya.
- The strategy of the Shaitaan is to sack you from your job when you stand up for Islam to make you fear poverty.
 
Shaitan (Satan) threatens you with poverty and orders you to commit Fahsha (evil deeds, illegal sexual intercourse, sins etc.); whereas Allah promises you Forgiveness from Himself and Bounty, and Allah is All-Sufficient for His creatures' needs, All-Knower. (Al-Baqarah 2:268
 
- Prince Al-Waleed cried like a baby when his name was not listed as one of the richest men in the Forbes magazine.
 
- Don't expect mercy from the military junta because Egypt is the land of the Pharaoh.
- The Saudis, the Kuwaitis and the UAE are backing the military against Morsi because the desert Kuffaar are the worst Kuffaar.
- The military can't use an election to get rid of Morsi because the people will vote for Morsi again so they used a coup.
 
- The Muslim Brotherhood used to be a militant organisation.
- They told the Brotherhood to use the ballot instead of the bullet.
- They promised to allow them to govern the people if they win the election but the Kuffaar broke their promise.
 
- Mohamed ElBaradei is part of the party killing men, women and children but he won a Nobel Peace Prize.
- So what is the significance of this Nobel Peace Prize?
 
- The Brotherhood have no choice but to go back to jihad.
- You are sitting ducks because you have no firepower.
- The Prophet said your power is your firepower.
 
Uqbah bin Amir (RA) narrated: 'I heard the Messenger of Allah (SAW) and he was on the minbar when he read the verse: "(And make ready against them all you can of power, including steeds of war...) [8:60], Verily strength is in throwing (i.e. shooting), verily strength is in throwing, verily strength is in throwing.” [Sahih Muslim (3/1522) No. 1917, Musnad Ahmad (4/156) No. 17468, Sunan Abu Dawud (3/13) No. 2514, Sunan Tirmidhi (5/270) No. 3083, Sunan Ibn Majah (4/91) No. 2813, Sunan al-Darime (2/269) No. 2404]
 
- When the Kaafirs broke their promise, they fell right into the hands of the Prophet and the Prophet conquered Makkah.
- Allah commanded you to punish the Kuffaar when they break their promise.
 
But if they violate their oaths after their covenant, and attack your religion with disapproval and criticism then fight (you) the leaders of disbelief (chiefs of Quraish - pagans of Makkah) - for surely their oaths are nothing to them - so that they may stop (evil actions). (At-Tawbah 9:12)
 
Will you not fight a people who have violated their oaths (pagans of Makkah) and intended to expel the Messenger, while they did attack you first? Do you fear them? Allah has more right that you should fear Him, if you are believers. (At-Tawbah 9:13)
 
Fight against them so that Allah will punish them by your hands and disgrace them and give you victory over them and heal the breasts of a believing people, (At-Tawbah 9:14)
 
- The military junta draw first blood killing innocent women and children and labelling them terrorists in order to carry out a massacre.
- Allah said to punish the Kuffaar with jihad.
- Thousands of Egyptians have already been killed by the junta.
- The Egyptians are hurting because of this.
- The only way for them to heal is through jihad, not through demonstrations.
 
- Al Qaeda doesn't demonstrate.
- They don't talk, they act.
- A million people demonstrated against the war in Iraq but Tony Blair still went to war.
- The demonstration of Al Qaeda is JIHAD FI SABEELILLAH in the battlefield.
 
- The Quran has the answer for every problem.
- The answer for the problem in Egypt can be found in surah 9:12-14.
- Expect the Kuffaar to draw first blood like how the military junta in Egypt did.
- Therefore Allah told you to punish the Kuffaar with jihad.
 
- The way forward is the bullet not the ballot.
- You've tried the ballot in Algeria and you got a kick in your teeth.
- You’ve tried the ballot in Egypt and you got a kick in your teeth.
 
Anas Ibn Malik narrated the Messenger of Allah (SAW) said: "A believer is shrewd, sharp and careful." [Quda'ee (d. 454 H) in 'Musnad al-Shihab' (Vol. 1 pg. 107) No. 128]
 
- Stop wasting Muslim money.
- The Prophet said your strength is in your firepower.
- You strength is not in demonstrating because the only language the Kuffaar understand is JIHAD FI SABEELILLAH.
 
 
QUESTION AND ANSWER SESSION
 
QUESTION 1:
A Saudi Salafi said that Muslims cannot fight against anyone except with a legitimate fighting army, i.e. an army of a country, as fighting with small groups will cause lots of bloodshed and he said we look at the lesser of two evils, so he used this excuse for not fighting against the tyrant rulers. Please can you shed some light on his statement, jzk.
 
ANSWER 1:
- This Saudi Salafi’s statement does not make sense.
- When the Russians invaded Afghanistan, Sheikh Bin Baz passed a fatwa for jihad.
- The Mujahideen who participated in jihad against the communists were not an army of a country.
- The Saudi Salafis have made up their own religion.
- Their religion is the religion of the Taghoot.
- They aim to cement the thrones of the apostate leaders.
 
QUESTION 2:
Sheikh, why are the scholars in Egypt silent on this issue?
 
ANSWER 2:
- The Egyptian Scholars fear reprisal from the ARMY.
- This is the only logical explanation we have.
 
- The Saudi scholars have spoken out and condemned the coup.
- The Saudi regime however does not want ISLAM to succeed.
- The apostate regimes of the Gulf withhold aid and bribe the army to overthrow the brotherhood.
- They want to portray Islam as a failed system
 
- They fear if Islam works in Egypt it will take over their kingdoms as well
- Allah reminded us in the Quran that the desert Arabs will be the worst Kuffaar.
- The apostate regimes do not want SHARIA and KHILAFA.
- They want to splurge on their playboy lifestyles instead.
 
- They would have to share their oil wealth under a Caliphate, so they want to hoard it instead.
- They hate having to share their wealth with the rest of the Muslims.
- It is easier to get Citizenship in countries like Australia and Canada, but nearly impossible to get citizenship in KSA or the other Gulf countries for that matter.
 
QUESTION 3:
As salamu'alaikum wr wb sheikh. May Allah reward you and keep you steadfast upon the haqq. I heard you say in one of your earlier talks, that Mullah Omar (ha) was Ameerul Mu'mineen because he received bay'ah from over 600,000 Muslims. Is he still Ameer ul Mu'mineen (because I still hear arab Mujahideen call him this), and is it wajib to give our bayah to him, or should it be given to Ayman Al-Zawahiri (ha), or does it depend on our respective locations?
 
ANSWER 3:
- Mullah Omar is Amir Al Mumineen; there is no doubt about it.
- It is compulsory on all Muslims to give him BAYAH.
- He deserves the title of Amir al Mumineen because he broke the back of NATO
 
QUESTION 4:
Shaikh, what should be our stance with regards to the situation in Egypt because we can’t support democracy?
 
ANSWER 4:
- Democracy is the religion of the Free Masons and the Satan
- They believe in the LAW by the people for the people and of the people
- WE believe in a THEOCRACY in which the LAW IS FROM ALLAH
- The white man however is a hypocrite who says we will never accept Islam to come to power even if you get it through democracy.
- The way forward is JIHAD
- There is no other way to gain VICTORY over the Kuffar
 
QUESTION 5:
What should this woman do? She is a senior citizen, very pious, religious Muslimah her whole life. She has been a homemaker her entire life and is not formally educated. She has health problems, she relies on her children, and she relies on her husband for financial support. Her husband apostatized about 7 years ago. This woman has suffered psychological problems due to her husband's major kufr (i.e. he will curse the Messenger and Allah). This woman has no sexual relationship with her husband. She doesn’t even take her hijab off in front of him. She dislikes even speaking to him and only does so if she has too. She avoids him when he's in the house. Is this woman sinful if she doesn't divorce her husband? She doesn't have money to support herself. If it is mandatory for her to divorce him, how would she do it? Does she have to go to an imam or can she just divorce him by herself or is she automatically divorced due to her husband's apostasy? Even if she divorces him Islamically, can she still live with him and remain legally married for the sake of being financially dependent?
 
ANSWER 5:
- Muslim women cannot marry Kaafir men.
- Muslim women are not allowed to live with Kaafir men.
- Nor can a Muslim woman live with an apostate
 
O you who believe! When believing women come to you as emigrants, examine them, Allah knows best as to their Faith, then if you ascertain that they are true believers, send them not back to the disbelievers, they are not lawful (wives) for the disbelievers nor are the disbelievers lawful (husbands) for them. But give the disbelievers that (amount of money) which they have spent [as their Mahr] to them. And there will be no sin on you to marry them if you have paid their Mahr to them. Likewise hold not the disbelieving women as wives, and ask for (the return of) that which you have spent (as Mahr) and let them (the disbelievers, etc.) ask back for that which they have spent. That is the Judgement of Allah. He judges between you. And Allah is All-Knowing, All-Wise. (Al-Mumtahinah 60:10)
 
- These things are KNOWN OF ISLAM BY NECESSITY
- You must approach a local shaikh to help you divorce
