Reality of Situation in Yemen [Video Courtesy:

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم


In the Western Countries, it is portrayed to the people that majority of Yemen is in famine, death and civil war and that diseases are spreading severely to all places and that there is no peace and no relief, meaning absolutely. That the children are dying in thousands and that the country is in a state which is unparalleled in the whole world. And that all this is due to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, that it attacked upon Yemen, killing its youth and many from the Muslims are believing that. So is there any clarification?

Shaykh Abū Muḥammad ʿAbdul Ḥamīd bin Yaḥyā al-Ḥajūrī az-Zuʿkurī حفظه الله

In reality, these news and rumors are published by the United Nations and those biased to them, those who malign Islam and its people. It was the duty of the well-wisher to repel the Rawāfiḍ from their transgression if they truly intended mercy towards the Yemenis. But the reality is in contradiction to this as they want to strengthen the Rāfiḍah. For this reason, whenever the Rāfiḍah are attacked and they come close to finishing them, the disbelieving countries rise up by crying over them and weeping, pleading for mercy and the suffering in the name of the youth.

The affair that follows is that the youth as a whole are in goodness. Eating, drinking and from them are those who are killed and those who fall sick and die and those who fall sick and recover. The fact is that majority of them are in goodness and that illness is by the Qadar of Allāh and death is by the Qadar of Allāh.

وَمَا كَانَ لِنَفْسٍ أَن تَمُوتَ إِلَّا بِإِذْنِ اللَّهِ كِتَابًا مُّؤَجَّلًا ۗ

And no person can ever die except by Allāh’s Leave and at an appointed term.

Āl ʿImrān 3:145

Other than that, there is goodness present. One-third of the country, there is no war and in it is goodness from the businesses, petrol, electricity and likewise clinics and hospitals and with the praise of Allāh, circles of knowledge are spreading and available. Eating, drinking, enjoying and this is like the saying of those,

وَهَنَتْهُمْ حُمَّى يَثْرِبَ

“The fever in Medina had weakened them”

Ṣaḥīḥ Muslim 1266

The seeker of good and the one who desires it, will find it. The person of excuses, even if the earth were spread out for him with roses, (he would say,) “What is this about?” Except that the affairs are good and everything is fine, if Allāh Wills. This harm that is happening will be eliminated.

Shaykh Abū ʿAbdullāh Muḥammad bin ʿAbdullāh Bā Jammāl حفظه الله

The clarification is that this is a lie! This is a lie! As for the one who does not believe, kindly come (and see for yourself). As of now Mā shā’ Allāh! The people probably have three meals rather five meals; first breakfast, second breakfast, lunch, mid-day, evening and dinner, possibly upto 6-7 meals. And I give you glad tidings, that the eateries have increased in number, Mā shā’ Allāh. Increase in the eateries indicate towards increase in those who eat and increase in goodness, All praises are due to Allāh alone! Goodness is present, and we ask Allāh to eliminate the evils. There is no country except that in it is evil. There is no country except that in it is distress. But regarding this portrayal which is mentioned now, that is, we are in famine and always in death, there are children dying in thousands and likewise that this is due to Saudi, then this is totally from falsehood. All of it is from the confusion caused by the West, the disbelievers, those who are hateful upon Islam and its people. Yes, spiteful of the religion of Islam and its people. So we say to them, this is all a lie, fraud and deception, twisting of the truth while the people, all praises are due to Allāh alone, continue to be upon goodness, They continue to be upon goodness. And indeed these issues are possibly in specific places and less in number. Except for that there is goodness, and to Allāh belongs all the praises, in totality.

We ask Allāh ‘Azza wa Jalla, from His Bounty, to sustain upon us the goodness, to increase upon us from His Bounties, to aid us against the harms and to aid us against the trials, that which is apparent and that which is hidden.

And that which they are in, in the Western countries is a greater fitnah (trial). Indeed By Allāh! A greater fitnah. For death of the heart with life in the body, there is no benefit from it. And death of the body with life in the heart, this is the true life. So if a Muslim dies upon Islam while he is firm upon it, even if he were in famine, there he is in great good. But if he were (busy) with food and drinks and other than this and he is upon other than Islam and religion and faith, then he would be (like) a corpse, The corpse is worse than the donkeys and the dogs.

أَمْ تَحْسَبُ أَنَّ أَكْثَرَهُمْ يَسْمَعُونَ أَوْ يَعْقِلُونَ ۚ إِنْ هُمْ إِلَّا كَالْأَنْعَامِ ۖ بَلْ هُمْ أَضَلُّ سَبِيلًا

Or do you think that most of them hear or understand? They are only like cattle; nay, they are even farther astray from the Path. (i.e. even worse than cattle).

Al-Furqan 25:44

وَلَقَدْ ذَرَأْنَا لِجَهَنَّمَ كَثِيرًا مِّنَ الْجِنِّ وَالْإِنسِ ۖ لَهُمْ قُلُوبٌ لَّا يَفْقَهُونَ بِهَا وَلَهُمْ أَعْيُنٌ لَّا يُبْصِرُونَ بِهَا وَلَهُمْ آذَانٌ لَّا يَسْمَعُونَ بِهَا ۚ أُولَٰئِكَ كَالْأَنْعَامِ بَلْ هُمْ أَضَلُّ ۚ أُولَٰئِكَ هُمُ الْغَافِلُونَ

And surely, We have created many of the jinns and mankind for Hell. They have hearts wherewith they understand not, they have eyes wherewith they see not, and they have ears wherewith they hear not (the truth). They are like cattle, nay even more astray; those! They are the heedless ones.

Al-A’raf 7:179
