Ruling By Other Than What Allaah Has Revealed

And in the Kuwaiti magazine, "al-Furqan", no 28 (p. 16) is the transcript of gathering that took place with the Noble Shaikh `Abdul-`Aziz Bin Baz – rahimahullaah – and he is the student of Shaikh Muhammad bin Ibrahim and the spreader of his knowledge. In this gathering he was asked the following question:

"There is a fatwa of Shaikh Muhammad bin Ibrahim Aal Shaikh – rahimahullaah – which the People of Takfir use to demonstrate that the Shaikh did not differentiate between the one who ruled by other than the Sharee’ah of Allah - `Azza wa Jalla – while he declares this act of his to be permissible (mustihillan), and the one who is not like this (i.e. does not declare his act to be permissible) – (while this) differentiation is well known amongst the Ulamaa."

Shaikh Ibn Baz replied:

"This matter is firmly established with the Ulamaa – as I have mentioned previously – that the one who declares that to be permissible (man istahalla dhalik) then he has disbelieved. As for the one who does not declare that to be permissible, such as the one who judges subject to bribery and similar things, then this is only the minor kufr (kufr doona kufr). And when an Islamic State is established and which has power and capability, then it should struggle against the one who does not judge by what Allaah has revealed until it forces him to do so."

The questioner said, "But they use the fatwa of Shaikh Muhammad bin Ibrahim as evidence?!"

Shaikh Bin Baz replied:

"Muhammad bin Ibrahim is not infallible (ma’soom), he is but a scholar from amongst the scholars, he is sometimes correct and sometimes in error and he is not a Prophet nor a Messenger. Likewise, Shaikh ul-Islaam Ibn Taymiyyah, Ibn al-Qayyim, Ibn Kathir and other scholars. All of them are sometimes correct and they sometimes err. But only what conforms to the truth is taken from their statements and as for what opposes the truth, then it is rejected from the one who said it."
