Muwahhideen Publications is pleased to present this tremendously beneficial Ebook which is a transcription of the summarized translation of a tele-lecture with Mpubs entitled, “The Position of the Salafī Regarding the Fitnah in Aleppo and Yemen,” by Shaykh Muḥammad ibn Muḥammad ‘Akūr (حفظه الله) on Sunday 18th December, 2016. The Shaykh clarifies explicitly the position that the true salafī, the sunnī upon the understanding of the salaf us ṣalah, should have regarding this current fitnah happening in these two strategic Muslim lands. The principles that the Shaykh expounds, from the Qu'ran and Sunnah, are not only applicable for what is happening in Syria and Yemen, but are general for all places and times. This insightful lecture was an exquisite clarification on the situation that the Muslims are in today and the reasons for our weakness. The Shaykh also defined, clearly, the precise conditions for the promised victory laid out by Allāh and His Messenger (صلى الله عليه وسلم). Below is the table of contents showing the topics that the Shaykh covered:
2. Everything Happens by the Decree of Allāh.
3. The Plot of the Enemies Against the Muslims.
4. The Results of Revolting Against the Leader.
5. We Have to Turn Back to Allāh.
6. Helping Our Brothers in Syria and Yemen.
7. Victory Is Guaranteed If We Turn to Allāh with Sincerity.
8. Impermissibility of Committing Suicide When Fearing Rape.
9. Attaining True Victory from Allāh.
10. The General Affairs are Not to be Put in the Hands of the Laymen
~ An excerpt taken from the eBook ~
If any of us are too miserly to help our brothers with our wealth, the very least that we can do is supplicate for them. If we are able to help our brothers in Yemen and Syria or elsewhere whether it is financially, or helping them put some food in their mouths, we should do so. And if we cannot, then the very least that we can do is call upon Allāh(عز وجل) to rectify their situation.
We must also speak the truth and encourage the Muslims to exercise patience and seek the reward from Allāh, hoping for victory and relief. Allāh has only allowed these situations to occur because of some ḥikmah, that He alone knows. The Muslims in Makkah (before the ḥijrah) encountered similar hardships; the Muslims are also currently experiencing hardships and the believers shall continue to be tested until Allāh inherits this earth and everyone and everything on it.
