Islamic Prospective On Demonstrations – Shaykh Bin Baz 

Shaykh Bin Baz said, “Rallying  for  demonstrations  is  not  good  –  it  was  not  from  the  manners  of  the companions  of  the  messenger  sall  Allaahu  ‘alayhi  wa  sallam  and  those  who  followed  him  in goodness.  Rather  [what  is  is]  advising,  guiding,  ordering  the  good  and  forbidding  the  evil and  co-operating  upon  piety and  od-consciousness.  This  is  the  way to  be  followed: 

Allaah,  the  High,  said,  {The  believers,  men  and  women,  are  Auliya’  (helpers,  supporters, friends,  protectors)  of  one  another,  they  enjoin  Al-Ma’ruf  (i.e.  Islamic  Monotheism  and  all that  Islam  orders  one  to  do),  and  forbid  from  Al-Munkar} [al-Hajj:  71] 

And  He  said,  {Let  there  arise  out  of  you  a  group  of  people  inviting  to  all  that  is  good  (Islam), enjoining  Al-Ma’ruf  and  forbidding  Al-Munkar}  [Al-Imran:  104]. 

Also the  prophet  sall  Allaahu  ‘alayhi  wa  sallam  said,  “Whosoever  from  you  sees  an  evil,  let them  change  it  with  their  hand,  but  if  they  are  not  able,  with  their  tongue,  but  if  they  are not  able,  with  their  heart,  and  that  is  the  weakest  of  faith.” 

Disapproving  of  the  evil  with  action  is  for  the  Imaam  or  leader,  or  the  body  that  has knowledge.  As  for  individuals  from  the  people,  if  they  reject  it  with  their  hands,  there  will  be trials,  differing,  splintering  into  groups  and  the  benefit  will  be  lost. 

So  it  is  obligatory  upon  every  individual  to  advise  with  statements,  guidance,  encouraging and  warning.  The  authority  of  the  house  over  the  children;  the  body  with  regards  to  that which  it  rules  over,  as  much  as  it  can,  and  also  the  leader  –  he  has  the  right  to  disapprove with  action. As  for  individuals,  they  should  disapprove  with  their  speech  as  they  can not  with  action,  so that  the  problem  does  not  increase and  the  evil  does  not  increase.”
