That by which the Ummah has been put to trial in current times is the emergence of a people who wear the gown of knowledge, abrogate the Sharee’ah in the name of "revivalism" and facilitate all of the ways to corruption in the name of "understanding the ease and lenience of Islaam". And so they opened up evil and despicable avenues in the name of "ijtihaad". Then they belittled the affairs of the Sunnah in the name of the "understanding of priorities" and they also declared their loyalty for the Infidels in the name of "creating a good picture of Islaam".

And at the head of them is the muftee known as Yusuf al-Qaradaawi who has worked in order to spread this ideology by way of the Internet, lectures, lessons, books and conferences and others ways.

This brief paper is only a summary of some of the ideas and thoughts of this man. And this is by way of sincere advice to the Ummah and to be free of blame and in order to warn from this man and his likes.

Detailed refutations of this man have already been written, such as "Iskaat Kalb al-Aawi (Silencing the Hounding Dog)" of Shaikh Muqbil bin Haadee, and other works, both large and small in volume.


Al-Qaradawi has layed to waste and caused to die the creed of loyalty and disownment (al-walaa al-baraa).

He said about the Christians, "Then all of the affairs are shared between us since we are the sons of a single land, our destination is the same and our Ummah is one. I say about them, ‘Our Christian brothers’ and some people reject this from me and say how can I say that they are our Christian brothers? [Allaah says] "Verily the Believers are but a single brotherhood". Yes, we are believers and they are believers from another angle". (Programme for Sharee’ah and Life, in the lecture Non-Muslims in Light of the Sharee’ah, dated 12/10/97 in Qunaat.) And the lectures and books of this man are replete with this theme, such as what occurs in his book ‘Fataawaa al-Mu’aasarah’, ‘al-Khasaa’is al-Aammah lil-Islaam’ and Malaamih al-Mujta’ma’ al-Muslim’. Likewise, he also fills many of his da’wah programmes with this theme as is well known.

He also said in the same gathering, "the Copts (Christians) have offered thousands of "martyrs" (shuhadaa)…".

He also said, "There is no harm in a Muslim having love and intimacy (muwaddah) with non-Muslim". (Non-Muslims in an Islamic Society, p.68). He has also said this in the aforementioned programme and also in some of his other books. Compare this with the saying of Allaah, the Most High, "You will not find anyone who believes in Allaah and the Last day showing friendship for those who resist and oppose Allaah and His Messenger, even if they be their fathers or their sons or their brothers or their kindred…" (Al-Mujadilah 58:22)

 He said, "The enmity that is between us and the Jews is for the sake of land only, not for the sake of the religion…". (al-Ummah al-Islaamiyyah Haqeeqah, Laa Wahm, p.70). He also corroborated this in his programme, ‘as-Siraa’ Bain al-Muslimeen wal-Yahood’.

He also said concerning the saying of Allaah the Most High, "You will indeed find the most severe in their enmity towards those who believe to be the Jews and the Pagans…" that this is in relation to the circumstances during the era of the Prophet (sallallaahu alaihi wasallam) and is not in relation to the current times. (In the programme, Ash-Sharee’ah wal-Hayaat).

He also used the last part of the verse to justify closeness to the Christians in the current times. (In the lesson entitled, Non-Muslims in the Shade of the Islamic Sharee’ah, which was in the programme, Ash-Sharee’ah wal-Hayaat).

He also affirmed in many places that Islaam – as he claims – reveres the revealed religions. (In the lesson entitled, Deen ul-Bashaa’ir wal-Mubashshiraat, which was in the programme, Ash-Sharee’ah wal-Hayaat, dated 24/1/1999).

And he stated that the adherents of other religions are like the Muslims, due to them is what is due to the Muslims, and upon them is what is upon the Muslims. (Islaam and Secularism, p. 101). He has mentioned this in many of his other lectures and programmes.

And he claims that Jihaad is for the purpose of defending all of the religions not just for Islaam alone. (In the lesson entitled, State Relations, which was in the programme, Ash-Sharee’ah wal-Hayaat).

He also made it permissible to give congratulations to the non-Muslims on their days of celebration. (In the lesson entitled, Non-Muslims in the Shade of the Islamic Sharee’ah, which was in the programme, Ash-Sharee’ah wal-Hayaat).

NOTE Islam does not prohibit interaction with non-Muslims and nor being benevolent and kind to them (as long as those non-Muslims do not show any aggression), however there is a difference between loving non-Muslims on the basis of the religion that they believe in and between interacting with them in purely orldly things in which there are benefits. The discussion here is with respect to religious issues.
