Shaykh Al-Fawzaan (may Allaah protect him) said, “All praise is due to Allaah, the person (should) praise Allaah for his safety from tribulations, this (the Syrians situation) is a tribulation (fitnah) so the person does not enter into it, he stays away from it.
However, he supplicates for the Muslims, he supplicates for the Muslims to be victorious and happy (after suffering), and he supplicates abundantly.
As for his intention to go (to Syria) this is not permissible.
Firstly, because he has a family, and he has parents and he has a household.
Secondly, permission of the ruler is a must, permission of the ruler is a must, so two affairs are a must.
Permission from the ruler and permission from his father, this (the Syrian situation) is a tribulation (fitnah), (so) the person stays far away from it.”
