torture in saudi prison

Torture in the Saudi Prisons
As Related by a Muslim Prisoner

The following is the story which was told to us by a youth, a trustworthy veteran of the Afghan war, who was incarcerated at Ar-Ruwais Prison in Jeddah and whom Allah saved.
Kabul fell, and the fires of fitna and disagreement alit between the various Mujahideen factions.
We held our hands back from participating in such a diatribe and dark fitna. I went back to the Kingdom (of Saudi Arabia) seeking safety and tranquility. I looked for treatment for the amputated leg which I lost during the Afghan Jihad. I stayed in Jeddah. I lived close to the hospital in a small apartment caring about nothing except treating my leg and healing my wounds.
After the Riyadh bombing (of a U.S. training facility November 1996), I was awakened by strong knocking on my door. I stood on my canes running to open it only to see it knocked down. The knockers burst into the apartment. I thought they were thieves. I yelled at them: "Who are you? What do you want from me?" They were eleven, members of the Mabaheth (Saudi Security). They overcame me, searched my apartment and turned it upside down after they had hand-cuffed me for about two hours. All that time they were searching, they did not leave anything or anywhere but searched, including the pipes in the bathroom. Then, they took whatever they willed of books and tapes and took me with them, tied. The trip took eight months of misery and agony.

whom we should fight and why (ibn thaymiyya)

Shaykh ul-Islaam Ibn Taymiyyah, delivers a decisive and fatal blow to the hypocrites and false
claimants to the blessed salafi da'wah. Those deviants who put obstacles in the path of Jihaad
which do not exist, and belittle and negate the obligation of Jihaad in our times.
Shaykh ul-Islaam Ibn Taymiyyah rahimahullah, said in Majmoo' il-Fataawa Vol28 348,
“ Whomsoever the da'wah [invitation] of the Messenger sallallahu alayhi was salama has reached
them- and that [da'wah] is to the Deen of Allah, with which he was sent -and they do not respond
to [and accept] it, it then becomes an obligation to fight them[1] “..until there is no more
Fitnah[shirk], and the Deen[religion] is for Allah alone.” Surah al-Baqarah:193.

salaf on fighting apostate rulers

Imām An-Nawawī said, “Al-Qādhī ‘Iyādh said, ‘The scholars have formed a consensus that
the leadership (Imāmah) is not to be contracted to a disbeliever (Kāfir) and that if disbelief
(Kufr) comes from him, then he is to be removed… So if disbelief (Kufr) and changing the
legislation (Shara’ ) or innovation (Bid’ah) comes from him, then he has left the status of
authority and his (right) of obedience falls and it becomes obligatory upon the Muslims to
rise up against him and remove him and set up a just Imām, if that is possible for them. Then
if that is not possible, except for a group (Tā’ifah), 707 then it is obligatory upon them (i.e. a
group) to rise up and remove the disbeliever (Kāfir). And that is not obligatory concerning
the innovator, unless they assume that they are able (to do so). Then if the inability is
confirmed, then the uprising is not obligatory, but the Muslims must make Hijrah away from
his land to other than it, and flee with his religion.” 708

Al-Hāfith Ibn Hajar Al-‘Asqalānī رحمه الله said, “Ad-Dāwūdī said that, “The scholars are
(united) regarding that the oppressive [Muslim] rulers, if it is possible to remove them
without fitnah (war), then it is obligatory (Wājib); but if it involves fitnah (war), then it is
obligatory to be patient. And some scholars view that it is not permissible to put a fāsiq
(oppressor) into rulership if he is as such from the beginning; but if he was put into position
while he was righteous, and then later committed oppression- then the scholars have differed
regarding revolting against such a (fāsiq) ruler, but the correct opinion is that it is forbidden.
But as for the ruler committing kufr, then it is obligatory (Wājib).”

Ibn Hajar رحمه الله also narrates from the Salaf, “The Fuqahā’ (scholars) are united in Ijmā’
regarding the obligation of obeying a sinful (Muslim Muwahhid) ruler, and that Jihād with him
(against the kuffār) is valid, and that obeying him is better than revolting against him, and spilling the blood of many… And the scholars have not exempted any from this obligation
(of obeying the rulers) except if the ruler perpetrates clear kufr- in such a case, it is not
permissible to obey the ruler in that matter (of kufr)- on the contrary, it is obligatory (Wājib)
to wage Jihād against him, for whosoever is capable of doing so.” 710

And Shaykh Al-Islām Ibn Taymiyyah رحمه الله said regarding the rulers who do not take Jizyah
(tax) from the Jews and Christians, and forbid Jihād against the kuffār, “So any group that
refuses to do these, even if they accept (the obligation of) these, they are to be fought. And I
have no knowledge of any difference of opinion regarding this.” 711

ibn thaymiyya on abandoning the Shariah

"And it is known by necessity in the Deen of the Muslims and by the agreement of all the Muslims that whoever CONSIDERS IT PERMISSIBLE TO FOLLOW a Sharee'ah other than the Sharee'ah of Muhammad then he is a Kaafir and it is like the Kufr of the one who believes in some of the Book and disbelieves in some of the Book." (Al-Fataawaa, Vol. 28, P. 524)

Ibn Taymiyyah also said {Al-Fataawa: Volume 28, Pages 510 – 512): "Every group which rebels against mutawaatir (clear-cut), law of the Islamic Shari'ah must be fought by the consensus (ijmaa) of all the Imaams (leaders) of Muslims, even if they pronounce the Shahaada (declaration of faith).

ibn thaymiyya's role in jihad

By: Muhammad El-Halaby
From: Nida'ul Islam Magazine

Sheikh-ul Islam Ahmad Ibn Taymiyah was not an ordinary Sheikh like those of today, or a scholar who centred a study circle, nor was he just a Friday khateeb or a mere teacher in a mosque. He was also not contented with instituting a school to educate his students the sciences of Shari'ah. For he took the role of the General Imam or the deputy of the rightly-guided Khaleefa in his absence.

the hukm of Allah about fighting them (ibn thaymiyya)

The Hukm of Allaah about Fighting Them
Ibn Taymiyyah said as mentioned in Majmu’a al-Fataawa: “Fighting
the Tartars who came over to Syria is obligatory by the Quraan and
Sunnah, because Allaah I says in the Quraan:
‘And fight them until there is no more Fitnah, and the religon will
be for Allaah Alone.’57
And the religion means obedience, so if some part of the religion is
for Allaah I and another is for other than Allaah I, fighting becomes
obligatory until all of the religion is for Allaah I and that is why
Allaah I says:
‘O you who believe! Be afraid of Allaah and give up the remains
of the from the usury if you are believers, and if you do not then
take on a notice of war from Allaah and His Messenger.’58
