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.

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.

The committee of scholars in support of Syria were told not to raise funds for Syira. I can’t collect any more donations. Oh Allah this is our effort (we tried).

Very interesting.
