Al Jazeera Network and its Founders fuel strife in the Muslim lands | Shaykh ʿAdnān al-Maṣqarī

A Response to those who Accuse Shaykh Yaḥyā al-Ḥajūrī of Khurūj

The questioner asks:

Q: There are some haters of the scholar Yaḥyā bin ʿAlī al-Ḥajūrī, they convey in Algeria amongst the novice Salafī commoners that Yaḥyā al-Ḥajūrī is a Khārijī because he speaks regarding Qatar and its rulers, and by it they mean the well-known audio that shook the world, and the Muwahhidūn were pleased by it while it was hated by the envious[1]. In it Shaykh Yaḥyā, spoke about the deceit of Qatar and the sedition of Al Jazeera Channel.

So what is your response to these slanderous accusations, and what is your advice to them and to those who are deceived by them after hearing such suspicious speech and false accusations?

This is the answer given by the virtuous Shaykh, Abul Yamān ʿAdnān bin Ḥussain al-Maṣqarī -May Allāh preserve him-:

[The Evils of Al Jazeera Network and their founders]

A: Without doubt Qatar is sowing evil and sprouting envy and hatred between the Muslims. And are delighted by revolutions and coups and wants from all the Muslim countries that they revolt against their ruler. It is as if they are agents for enemies of Allāh and enemies of Islam, agents opposing the Arab nations. So this is not hidden from the scholars and students of knowledge that it is a must to warn the Muslims from Qatar and Al Jazeera Channel[2] which fuels strife and rejoices in the revolutions in Muslim countries, rather wants revolts in the country of the two Ḥarams and handing over of Yemen and the country of the two Ḥarams to the Rāfidhāh, the Ḥouthīs and Iran.

And astonishingly enough, the disbelievers and the Rāfidhah are safe from its evil. When a revolution broke out in Iran, it harnessed its media with the Iranian state against the rebels. And it rejoiced with great joy with the upheavals in Muslim countries. Does a Muslim doubt that this is hypocrisy? There is no doubt that this is hypocrisy -we seek refuge from Allāh-.

[Oh Muslim! Recognise your enemy]

There is no doubt that this is a disease and there is no doubt that this is hostility towards Islam and the Muslims.

Oh! Muslim, contemplate about your religion, deliberate, and see who your enemy is. And if such a state is established that harnesses its media and wealth for revolutions and coups, rather it shelters seniors of the Muslim Brotherhood, those who advocate revolutions and speaks against the scholars of Islām and Sunnah, then it is permissible to speak against it unanimously and warn against its evil and even supplicate against it and we will pray against it.

[Our religion does not advocate rebellion against the Muslim ruler]

It does not mean that we like rebellion against Qatar by the people, No! by Allāh.
Rather, we say to the people of Qatar that it is not permissible to rebel against your rulers, and we do not like the rebellion, so this is our religion.

And we ask Allāh -the Most High- to make futile it’s work and it’s ploys and to make her wealth a regret for them.

{إِنَّ ٱلَّذِینَ كَفَرُوا۟ یُنفِقُونَ أَمۡوَ ٰ⁠لَهُمۡ لِیَصُدُّوا۟ عَن سَبِیلِ ٱللَّهِۚ فَسَیُنفِقُونَهَا ثُمَّ تَكُونُ عَلَیۡهِمۡ حَسۡرَةࣰ ثُمَّ یُغۡلَبُونَۗ وَٱلَّذِینَ كَفَرُوۤا۟ إِلَىٰ جَهَنَّمَ یُحۡشَرُونَ}

❝Verily, those who disbelieve spend their wealth to hinder (men) from the Path of Allāh, and so will they continue to spend it; but in the end it will become an anguish for them. Then they will be overcomed. And those who disbelieve will be gathered unto Hell.❞

Sūrah al-Anfāl 36

This is treachery and it’s not unlikely that Al Jazeera is a malicious masonic channel.

[The Spiritual Insight of a Noble Scholar]

And the words of our Shaykh Yaḥyā bin ʿAlī al-Ḥajūrī about it, was the Firāsah[3] (spiritual foresight or intuition) of a great and venerable scholar, who made a discernment in it, with the insight of the righteous and truthful. He spoke about it when others were silent and speechless, and warned against it and its evil, and now all the people and the rulers recognised the evil of Qatar and the evil of Al Jazeera, and it became an island of malice -we seek protection from Allāh-, it became a disliked outcast and none rejoices by it except the Muslim Brotherhood and supporters of rebellion, because it supports the Khawārij, the (Muslim) Brotherhood, and the terrorists from Dā’esh and the Jihādi groups to create strife in the Muslim countries -and protection is sought from Allāh-.

So the Muslim does not remain doubtful that this is an evil ploy upon Islam and that they are enemies against people of Islam and that they will regret it. Perhaps, -and protection is sought from Allāh-, their wealth will be destroyed and their blessings will be erased. And even if the state of the Jews and Turkey and Iran were to stand by them, they have been known from a long time to be against Islam and the Muslims.

{لَن یَضُرُّوكُمۡ إِلَّاۤ أَذࣰى}

❝They will do you no harm, barring a trifling annoyance❞

Sūrah Āl ‘Imrān 3:111

So the Ahlus-Sunnah speak regarding those rulers who interfere in the countries, wanting to establish revolutions. The scholars had spoken on Gamal Abdul Nasser when he wanted revolutions in the Muslim lands and in countries other than Egypt[4]. Yes, and Allāh knows best.

الرد على من اتهم الشيخ يحيى بن علي الحجوري بالخروج

هذا سؤال يقول صاحبه :

هناك بعض الحاقدين على العلامة يحيى بن علي الحجوري، ينقلون في الجزائر بين عوام السلفيين المبتدئين أن يحيى الحجوري خارجي لأنه يتكلم في قطر وحُكّامها، وهم يقصدون تلك الصوتية المشهورة التي هزت العالم، وفرح بها الموحدون وغضب بها الحاسدون التي تكلم فيها الشيخ يحيى من مكر قطر وفتنة قناة الجزيرة
فما هو ردكم على هذه الطعونات وما نصيحتكم لهم وللمغرر بهم الذين يسمعون مثل هذه الشبه والتهم الباطلة؟

الجواب :-
للشيخ الفاضل أبي اليمان عدنان بن حسين المصقري حفظه اللّٰه :

لا شك أن قطر تزرع الشر وتُنبت الحقد والبغضاء بين المسلمين، وتفرح بالثورات والانقلابات وتريد من كل بلد مسلم أن يثور على حاكمه، وكأنها عميلة لأعداء اللّٰه وعميلة لأعداء الإسلام عميلة ضد الوطن العربي فهذا لا يخفى على العلماء وطلبة العلم أنه لابد أن يُحذر المسلمون من قطر وقناة الجزيرة التي تؤجج الفتن وتفرح بالثورة في بلاد المسلمين بل تريد الثورة في بلاد الحرمين وتسليم اليمن وبلاد الحرمين للرافضة والحوثيين وإيران.

والعجب أنه يسلم من شرها الكفار والرافضة، لما قامت ثورة في إيران سخّرت إعلامها مع الدولة الإيرانية ضد الثوار،
وكانت تفرح فرحا عظيماً بالانقلابات في بلاد المسلمين
فهل يَشك مسلم في أن هذا نفاقا؛ لا شك أن هذا نفاق عياذا باللّٰه.

لا شك أن هذا مرض ولا شك أن هذه عداوة للإسلام والمسلمين.

فيا أيها المسلم تبصَّر في دينك وتمهل وانظر من عدوك.
وإذا قامت مثل هذه الدولة تُسخر إعلامها ومالها للثورات والانقلابات، بل تَؤوِي كبار الإخوان المسلمين الداعين للثورات وتتكلم على علماء الإسلام والسنة، فيجوز الكلام عليها إجماعا والتحذير من شرها بل والدعاء عليها وسندعو عليها.

ولت يعني أننا نحب الثورة على قطر من قبل الشعب كلا والله.
بل نحن نقول لأهل قطر لا يجوز الخروج على حكامكم ولا نحب الثورة فهذا ديننا.

ونسأل اللّٰه تعالى أن يخيب عملها ومكرها وأن يجعل أموالها حسرة عليهم (إِنَّ ٱلَّذِینَ كَفَرُوا۟ یُنفِقُونَ أَمۡوَ ٰ⁠لَهُمۡ لِیَصُدُّوا۟ عَن سَبِیلِ ٱللَّهِۚ فَسَیُنفِقُونَهَا ثُمَّ تَكُونُ عَلَیۡهِمۡ حَسۡرَةࣰ ثُمَّ یُغۡلَبُونَۗ وَٱلَّذِینَ كَفَرُوۤا۟ إِلَىٰ جَهَنَّمَ یُحۡشَرُونَ)
[سورة الأنفال:٣٦]

فهذه عمالة ولا يُستبعد أن قناة الجزيرة ماسونية خبيثة.

وكلام شيخنا يحيى بن علي الحجوري فيها كان تفَرُّس عالم جليل عظيم تفرَّس فيها تفرُّس المتقين الصادقين وتكلم عليها حين سكت الساكتون وحذر منها ومن شرها، والآن علم الناس كلهم والحكام شر قطر وشر قناة الجزيرة وصارت جزيرة للخبث والعياذ باللّٰه وصارت منبوذة مكروهة لا يفرح بها إلا الإخوان المسلمون وأصحاب الثورات لأنها تدعم الخوارج والإخوان والإرهابيين من الدواعش وجماعة الجهاد لإقامة الفتن في بلاد المسلمين عياذا باللّٰه.

فلا يشُك مسلم في أن هذا مكر على الإسلام وأنهم أعداء لأهل الإسلام وأنهم سيندَمون وربما والعياذ باللّٰه تُمحق أموالهم وتُمحق بركتهم وإن قامت معهم دولة اليهود والتركيا وإيران فهم معروفون من قديم الزمان أنهم ضد الإسلام والمسلمين و {لَن یَضُرُّوكُمۡ إِلَّاۤ أَذࣰى} .

فأهل السنة يتكلمون في من يتدَخل من الحكام في الدول ويريد إقامة الثورات قد تكلم العلماء على جمال عبد الناصر لما أراد الثورات في بلاد الإسلام وفي غير مصر من البلدان نعم، واللّٰه أعلم.

قام بتفريغها : أَبُو جُلَيْبِيب سَاجِدٌ بْنُ نَصْرٌ الدِّيْن السِّرِيلَانْكِي وفقه اللّٰه.
