Muslim Scholars respond to the Libyan/Egyptian Extremists attack on US Embassies

Muslim Scholars respond to the Libyan/Egyptian Extremists attack on US Embassies

Shaykh Yasir Qadhi:

Clerics and leaders who instigate Muslims to ‘defend the honor of the Prophet (saw)’ by attacking people who have nothing to do with insulting his honor, actually disrespect the memory of our Prophet (saw).

Yes, the movie was disgusting, but I’m sure the happiest person today is the person who made it, because his goal of smearing the Muslims has succeeded.

For how long will we tolerate such stupidity? (source)

Shaykh Abu Eesa Niamatullah:

I condemn it because the religion of Islam doesn’t allow such an action. Common sense and a call to revise sensibilities clearly have failed with such people. So we have to focus on the only thing that might speak out to them: their religion. These militiamen have not just insulted themselves, but they’ve insulted their Prophet, the same Prophet who stated authentically and unequivocally, “Whoever kills a person who is granted protection by the Muslims shall not smell the fragrance of Paradise even though its fragrance can be smelt from a distance of forty years of travelling.” (Source)

Spike in Mosque attacks in Ramadan? (Updated as more incidents occur, sadly)

Spike in Mosque attacks in Ramadan? (Updated as more incidents occur, sadly)

Of all the attributes of Ramadan, patience is one of them.  We are patient during the day when we have no food.  We are patient in night when we sleep less and pray more.  Now we have to be patient with the onslaught of hate crimes and the increase in Islamophobia by our ignorant American neighbors.

Dates are when the incident occurred:

Saudi Scholars Pledge Not To Raise Funds For Syria But One Saudi Scholar Offers $450,000 Reward For Bashar’s Death

Saudi Scholars Pledge Not To Raise Funds For Syria But One Saudi Scholar Offers $450,000 Reward For Bashar’s Death

Note: My translations are very poor. If you can correct it, please let comment below. JazakAllah khair.

This is the statement from the Scholars Committee on Syria from Saudi Arabia:

الحمد لله رب العالمين، والصلاة والسلام على نبينا محمد وعلى آله وصحبه أجمعين، وبعد:
فقد تم اتصال عدد من المسؤولين ببعض أعضاء (لجنة العلماء لنصرة سوريا) وطلبوا منهم إيقاف حملة التبرعات فوراً، وانطلاقاً من قوله تعالى: {فاتقوا الله ما استطعتم}، وقوله {لا يكلف الله نفساً إلا وسعها}، وتحقيقاً للمصلحة العامة فإن اللجنة تعلن إيقاف الحملة واعتذارها عن استقبال التبرعات وانتهاء المهمة التي قامت من أجلها، مع شكرنا لمن ساند هذه الحملة وتجاوب معها.
نسأل الله أن ينصر إخواننا في سوريا وأن يذل أعداءهم من قوى الكفر والطغيان.
فأبشروا وأملوا بقرب النصر، فإن مع العسر يسراً إن مع العسر يسراً، وصلى الله على نبينا محمد وآله وصحبه أجمعين.
لجنة العلماء لنصرة سوريا.

Translation:
Praise be to Allah, Lord of the worlds, and blessings and peace upon our Prophet Muhammad and all his family and companions.

To proceed:

A few officials have contacted members of the Committee of Scholars for the support of Syria and demanded of them to stop the campaign to raise funds immediately. The officials based their demands on the verses “So fear Allah as much as ye can…”[Surah 64, V.16] and “On no soul doth Allah Place a burden greater than it can bear…” [Surah 2, V. 286]. Then, for the sake of the public interest, the committee announced it is halting the campaign for donations. Further, the committee said it is unable to accept funds and their campaign has ended. The Committee wishes to thank everyone that responded and took part in the campaign.

We ask Allah to assist our brothers in Syria and to humiliate their disbelieving tyrannical enemies. We pray for victory soon, verily after hardship and distress comes ease.

Peace and blessing of Allah be upon our Prophet Muhammad and upon his family and his companions.

The Scholars committee for Syria.

I just left Riyadh after 2 hours and signed a pledge not to fundraise for Syira. I hope from those who have intended to come to Masjid Al-Bawardi to donate, not to burden themselves with doing so.

Very interesting.

US Soldier Murders Muslim Children: No Evidence, Has PTSD. French Muslim Murders Jewish Children: Terrorist “Jihadist”. US Neighborhood Watchman Murders Black Teen: No Crime.

Robert Bales. Mohammed Merah. George Zimmerman.

What do they all have in common? They all murdered innocent children.

Robert Bales is a US soldier accused of murdering 16 Afghans including several young children.  Experts are weighing in on the news outlets across America discussing his brain injuries, PTSD, stress at home and other reasons why he would commit such a horrendous crime. They also claim alcohol was involved and his lawyers says there is no evidence of his crimes.
