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.


O Mankind! Indeed there is a great lesson in this chapter. Neo-Qutubite Apologeticism had argued that Ahl ul-Hadeeth wal-Athar, As-haab us-Sunnah held onto the notion of the discontinuation of Jihaad – as an argument to support their own innovated doctrines. So many of the biased partisans began to resound with this great and mighty slander by which they intended to destroy the da’wah and manhaj of Shaikh ul-Islaam al-Albaani and his brothers, the other Imaams from Ahl us-Sunnah of the contemporary times, yet Allaah will perfect it even though the Innovators may detest it.

So they began to caution the common-folk against this da’wah and they made them flee from the Methodology of the Prophets in calling to Allaah, and every time a Political Activist, born of the Awakening of Ikhwaan ul-Mufliseen, reared his head and raised his unwanted voice against this da’wah and against its principles, such as the Wicked Muftee whose condition we are discussing, they raised him and aggrandised him and presented his "fiqh of priorities" to the world at large. Yet at the same time, they ridiculed our Imaams and made great the lie when they accused them of disallowing Jihaad.

Stated the Muftee, the Faqeeh ul-Waaqi’ – may Allaah sever his lips and protect the Ummah from his misguidance, "Some people say to us that you desire to have discussions with the Christians and others in order to arrive at what you call "World Peace"? So we reply to them "Yes, and why not!" They say because the basis and foundation concerning the relationship of the Muslims to those besides them is Jihad and it is not just peace. And this view actually exists, yet we do not subscribe to it." (al-Islaam wal-Gharb, p.16).

And he also says, "The issue of Jihaad in the path of Allaah for defending the land, the honours (of people) and the sanctities is a matter in which there is no further discussion. But as for defence for the sake of attacking the rest of the world, as some people imagine, is not a matter that is mentioned. And we actually base our position and build upon it based upon what the contemporary Scholars of the Muslims have held as their position, the likes of Shaikh Abu Zahrah, Shaikh Rasheed Ridaa, Shaikh Shaltut, Shaikh Abdullaah Daaraz and Shaikh al-Ghazaali. And all of those are of the view that Jihaad in Islaam is for the sake of defence of the religion and the state, the sanctities, the land and the honours of people…. And it is not for military expeditions as some of the people imagine…" (al-Islaam wal-Gharb, p.19)

And the Muftee also opined, "We do not fight the Jews for the sake of Aqidah, we fight them for the sake of the land. And we do not fight the Kuffar because they are Kuffar, but because they have occupied our lands and our homes and have taken them without any due right" (ar-Raayah magazine, no. 4696, 24th Sha’baan 1995).

And as for these statements then they are the resultant effects of the Qaradawite theorem of loyalty and disownment (al-walaa wal-baraa) – as the author of ‘Raf’ al-Lathaam’, Ahmad bin Muhammad bin Mansoor al-‘Adeeni has stated in his refutation of this Wicked Muftee.

Now, any Sunni knows that the purpose of Jihaad is to make the word of Allaah supreme, and that is none other than worshipping Him alone, and establishing and spreading Tawheed. So if the Qaradawite Think Tank and its theoreticians claim that this is not the motive and reason, and it is but land, then the land in the view of Qaradawite Thought, is more lofty and more noble and more worthy than the Islamic Aqidah.

Stated the Lord of Majesty and Honour, "Fight against those who believe not in Allâh, nor in the Last Day, nor forbid that which has been forbidden by Allâh and His Messenger and those who acknowledge not the religion of truth (i.e. Islâm) among the people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians), until they pay the Jizyah with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued." (At-Tawbah 9:29)
