Ruling On Demonstrations In Islam – Shaykh Bin Baz

Shaykh Bin Baz said, “Good; manners  is  from  the  greatest paths  through  which  the  truth  will  be  accepted,  and bad  character  from  the  most  dangerous  means  through  which  it  will  not  be  accepted  and the  engendering  oppression,  enmity and  fighting. Joined  to  this  is  that  which  some  people  do,  from  demonstrations,  which  cause  great  evil  to the  callers  –  marching  in  the  streets  and  shouting  isn’t  from  the  way  of  rectification  and da’wah. The  correct  way  is  to  visit  and  write  with  that  which  is  best  –  to  advise  the  leaders  and  the shaykhs  of  the  tribes [in places where they have tribes]  –  not  with  stringency  and  demonstrating.

The  prophet  sall  Allaahu ‘alayhi  wa  sallam  was  in  Mecca  for  ten  years  and  never  demonstrated  or  marched,  nor  did he  threaten  the  people  in  their  wealth  or  selves. And  there  is  no  doubt  that  this  manner  harms  the  da’wah  and  the  callers  –  it  prevents  its spread  and  leads  the  leaders  and  those  in  authority  to  do  whatsoever  they  can  to  oppose and  restrict  it. They  [the  protesters]  want  good  by  this  but  the  opposite  is  achieved!

That  the  caller  to  Allaah  takes  the  path  of  the  messengers  and  their  followers,  even  if  the period  of  time  stretches,  it  is  better  than  to  do  actions  that  harm,  restrict  or  govern  over  the da’wah. And  there  is  no  power  or  might  except  with  Allaah.”
