“Ask the Scholars Ya Akhi!”…how many times have you heard this?
How many times have our khateebs in our masajids accused the youth of being hot headed and to seek guidance from the learned scholars.
This video above is less than a month old, and shows the bandit king saud ADVISING the scholars.
You heard and saw it correctly – the ruler telling the scholars how to act.
Saud had the audacity to state:
“Command what is good and forbid what is evil, according to your capabilities, and that you do the things that please Allah above all, and serve your religion and your land”
While his head Mufti, Shaykh Abdul-Aziz responded with:
“The scholars and the leaders have a strong bond with one another
The scholars strengthen those in authority and love them and invite the people to love them as well
And to be loyal towards them and help them do what is good”
So while the bandit king is bribing his people with $37 Billion to support him while turning our holiest sites into a gaudy Dubai style adventure playground his own personal fatwa brigade continuously overlook, no, give their tacit support to the rulers – not avoiding munkar and doing mahruf.
The biggest problem with the Ummah is that the Ulema bow down and listen to tyrant rulers – rather than the ulema tell the king’s what’s best for the Ummah, it’s even worse as Arabia is the centre point for Islam.
We are told to “ask the scholars”, but if the scholars are so aligned with the rulers then what do you do?
Even the Ulema of the world’s oldest University, Al-Azhar admitted that it did itself and the Ummah a great injustice by joining itself with Mubarak’s authoritarian regime.
Last weeks Jumma reminder was from Shaykh Muhammad al-Yaqoubi who acted accordingly to Islamic principles and denounced the tyrants of Syria for their acts – and since doing so the Shaykh has been put under virtual house offence. Not that the western media gives two hoots – after all its only the likes of Burma’s Daw Aung San Suu Kyi who’s worthy of this position.
Cowardly scholars like those surrounding the bandit king are part of the problem, they clearly value their provision more than speaking the truth.
If you go and see the comments under the original posting of this video, you’ll see just how many people have been brainwashed into believing the hype about the sauds.
