[4] The Clueless Critics of Erudite Salafi Scholar Al-Allaamah Salih Al-Fawzaan

In The Name of Allah, The Most Merciful, The Bestower of Mercy.

Allah [The Most High] says:

يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا اجْتَنِبُوا كَثِيرًا مِنْ الظَّنِّ إِنَّ بَعْضَ الظَّنِّ إِثْمٌ

O you who believe! Avoid much suspicions, indeed some suspicions are sins.

[Surah Al-Hujuraat. Aayah 12]

Imam As-Sadi [may Allah have mercy upon him] said:

Allah [The Most High] has forbidden much evil suspicion towards the believers because some suspicions are sins. And that is like the suspicion devoid of reality and factual evidence, and like the suspicion accompanied by much-forbidden speech and action, for indeed the settlement of evil suspicion in the heart does not restrict the one (in whose heart is that evil suspicion) only to that; rather, he does not cease until he utters and does that which is not permissible. [(1)]

The cretins at Wikipedia stated: “Feminism activist Hala Al-Dosari (fellow of Radcliff Institute at Harvard) and Abdullah Alaoudh (senior fellow of Georgetown University and son of Salman al-Awdah) claim Saleh al-Fawzan is treated like a father figure by Mohammed Bin Salman. A month before the murder of Jamal Khashoggi, al-Fawzan proclaimed a threatening fatwa calling for the killing of critics of the Saudi government”. [End of quote]


Tthe orientation of this (fellow of Radcliff Institute at Harvard) speaks for itself, so, other than the information on the link, there is no need for any further comment. Link:

As for the second individual, Abdullah Alaoudh, if he is the son of the Qutbi Salman al-Awdah (Footnote a) as the cretins claim, it is not strange for a person to follow in his father’s footsteps, as the saying goes مَنْ شَابَهَ أبَاهُ فَما ظَلَمَ

Second, Saudi rulers have always recognised and honoured Salafi Scholars within and outside the Kingdon. Unlike the irresponsible activists, Qutubists, Ikhwaanees, and others, (Footnote b) the upright Salafi Scholars – past and present – advise rulers and consistently prioritise the safety and security of Muslim nations. Read below:

Believer’s Bahaviour Towards Muslim Rulers – [Supplicates For Them….]

The cretins stated, “A month before the murder of Jamal Khashoggi, al-Fawzan proclaimed a threatening fatwa calling for the killing of critics of the Saudi government”. [End of quote]

Response: No Salafi Scholar, including Al-Allaamah Saalih al-Fawzaan, would issue a Fatwa authorising the execution of any person residing in a Muslim country unless the crime was punishable by death under the infallible Shariah law. However, the cretins have not provided the exact date that the fatwa was issued, its text and signatories so that we can ascertain against whom it was specifically issued if it does exist in the first place! Indeed, the burden of proof is upon the cretins at Wikipedia. Furthermore, the investigation into Jamal Khashoggi’s [may Allah have mercy on him] death was conducted solely through the Saudi Justice System, rather than through the speculations of the media’s ideologues, demagogues, and rabble-rousers who utilised this affair to promote their ideologies of excessive free speech while also seeking to destabilise Saudi Arabia. Fourth, by stating without any proof that Al-Allaamah Saalih Al-Fawzaan issued a Fatwa advocating the killing of Saudi critics and then mentioning the death of Jamaal Khashoggi, the writers are discreetly or indirectly attempting to persuade unsuspecting readers to form their own opinions about a so-called connection between a Fatwa and its consequences a month later!

Therefore, their first goal is to damage the reputation of this noble and pious Salafi Scholar. Shaikh Abu Khadeejah [may Allah preserve him] stated: Abul-Qāsim Ibn ʿAsākir (d. 571H, rahimahullāh) said: “Know, my brother – may Allah guide us and you to His pleasure, and that He makes us from those who fear Him and are dutiful to Him as He deserves – that the flesh of the scholars, may Allah be merciful with them, is poison. And Allah’s established way of tearing down the screen of those who attack the scholars is well-known. That is because attacking them for an affair that they are innocent of is a mighty thing – and to speak of their honour with falsehood and fabrications is an evil and noxious pasture to graze upon!” [(2)]

As for their greatest goal goal and greatest desire, it is to destabilise Saudi Arabia by all means necessary, as Al-Allaamah Saalih Al-Fawzaan [may Allah preserve him] once stated: “This country -and all praise be to Allaah-is in a state of security, stability, comfortable living, and tranquillity, but this stability is not pleasing to the enemies of this country. So they have not ceased attempting to demolish its state of security. They attempt to do this so that it becomes like other countries. This country occupies the centre of the hearts of the Muslims, it is the Qiblah in their Salaah and occupies a status in the Islamic world. So, if it were to be destabilised—just as the enemies desire to destabilise the entire Islamic world, then who will establish the Hajj and Umrah and provide safety for the pilgrims whilst they seek to fulfill the rites of Hajj and Umrah, except this country with the Help of Allah [Glorified and Exalted be He]. The (social) structure of this country will be destabilised if its security is lost, then where will the Islamic world proceed to? Because of this, the enemies of Islam plot against this nation day and night, as you are all aware. Sometimes they do this by attempting to sow doubts about the (sound Islamic) creed and spreading immoral views among Muslim children in order to encourage idleness, extremism, or taking up arms or carrying explosives or wreaking havoc. Other times they do this by corrupting manners and encouraging forbidden things and desires among Muslim youth, in order to corrupt their manners and deprive them of their religion with the claim of freedom of expression and other false statements. Allah has freed mankind from idol worship, forbidden desires, and despicable manners. This is the correct freedom, but as for what is in opposition to it, such as evil desires, doubts, and corrupt manners, this is the freedom of animals. However, they want this in order to corrupt the Muslim youth either through extremism and harshness or negligence. They attempt this and that, either to corrupt the intellects of the Muslim youth with intoxicants, drugs, cigarettes, Qaat, and other drugs and intoxicants or through fabrications (i.e. false ideas, views, etc.). They want to do away with the Muslim youth because, after Allaah’s [Glorified be He] support for the Muslim society, the society is built upon its youth, therefore they want to corrupt the Muslim youth through any means so that they are able to demolish this country. As you can see –from time to time–huge quantities of opium and other types of drugs are smuggled. As you can see this did not come from nothing; rather it came about as an evil plan against this country. They want to destroy it from every direction. Therefore, you should all be one entity with your rulers and those placed in charge of your affairs to repel this enmity and pay attention to it”. [(3)] [End of quote]
