Demonstrations In View Of Islam – Shaykh Uthaymeen

Shaykh Uthaymeen said, “All  praise  is  due  to  Allaah,  Lord  of  the  worlds  and  may  Allaah  shower  peace  and  blessings upon  our  leader  Muhammad  and  upon  his  family  and  followers  and  whosoever  follows them  until  the  day of  recompense.   To  proceed:  

Indeed,  demonstrations  are  a  newly  invented  matter  that  were  not  known  at the  time  of  the  prophet  sall  Allaahu  ‘alayhi  wa  sallam,  nor  the  khulafa  ar-Raashidoon,  or  the sahaabah,  may  Allaah  be  pleased  with  them. In  addition  to  this,  they  contain  chaos  and  upheaval  that  leads  them  to  be  something prohibited  –  broken  glass,  doors,  and  other  than  this,  and  also  the  mixing  of  men  and women,  the  young  and  old  and  other  than  this  from  the  evils  they  present. 

As  for  putting  pressure  upon  the  government,  if  they  are  Muslim,  an  admonishment  from the  Book  of  Allaah  and  Sunnah  of  His  messenger  sall  Allaahu  ‘alayhi  wa  sallam  is  sufficient. This  is  the  best  thing  that  can  be  put  forward  to  the  Muslim. And  if  the  government  is  non-Muslim,  they  do  not  care  about  these  demonstrations,  even though  they  may  superficially agree  relent  to  them,  but  withholding  inward  ill  feeling. For  these  reasons, we  consider  demonstrations  an  evil. 

As  for  their  statement  that  they  are  peaceful  demonstrations  –  they  may  be  to  begin  with but  then  they  degenerate  and  become  ruinous. 

I  advise  the  youth  to  follow  the  way  of  those  who  preceded,  for  indeed,  Allaah  praised  the muhajiroon  and  ansar  and  those  who  follow  them  in  goodness.”
