Burning Books which Clarify the Truth

Reference: al-Fataawa al-Jaliyyah ‘anil-Manaahij ad-Da’wiyyah – Page 13, Question No.10

Question: What is your advice – O Shaykh – to the one who burns these books, namely: “al-Qutbiyyah” and “Madaarik an-Nathar” [and attacks their authors]?

Response: Burning those books which clarify the truth and encourage adhering to it, and (which) refute the falsehood and encourage refraining from it – whoever does that, then he is regarded as one who closes [the doors] to the Path of Allaah (‘Azza wa Jall). And Allaah (‘Azza wa Jall) shall ask him regarding this act when he stands before Him naked, having nothing except that which he has brought forth of [his] good [deeds] and [his] bad [deeds]. Indeed this act is from the acts of the falsifiers and the acts of the misguided.

Are they declaring these books like [the book] “Shams al-Ma’aarif” and other than them from the books of magic and quackery?!! No! Indeed this is a false statement, a false belief, and a false call; And it is obligatory upon the one who says this to fear Allaah, and to know that with this action of his he is closing [the doors] to the Path of Allaah (Subhaanahu wa Ta’aala), and [as such] he is regarded as amongst the mischief makers (mischievous) on the Earth. And Allaah (Subhaanahu wa Ta’aala) says:

{And do not do mischief on the earth, after it has been set in order, and invoke Him with fear and hope; Surely, Allaah’s Mercy is (ever) near unto the good¬doers}, Soorah al-A’raaf, Aayah 56

{…and do not mischief on the earth after it has been set in order, that will be better for you, if you are believers}, Soorah al-A’raaf, Aayah 85

{…and do good as Allaah has been good to you, and seek not mischief in the land. Verily, Allaah likes not the Mufsidoon (those who commit great crimes and sins, oppressors, tyrants, mischief-makers, corrupts)}, Soorah al-al-Qasas, Aayah 77


إحراق الكتب التي توضح الحق

المرجع: الفتاوى الجلية عن المناهج الدعوية – الصفحة 13، السؤال 10

السؤال: ما نصيحتكم يا شيخ لمن قام بإحراق هذه الكتب أي كتاب القطبية و مدارك النظر و الإرهاب على زعمهم السابق؟

الجواب: الإحراق للكتب التي تبيّن الحق، و تأمر باتباعه، و تدحضُ الباطل، و تأمر باجتنابه؛ من فعل ذلك، فإنه داخلٌ فيمن يصدُّ عن سبيل الله عزّ و جلّ، و سيسأله الله عزّ و جلّ عن هذا العمل عندما يقف بين يديه عارياً ليس له إلا ما قدّم من خيرٍ أو شرّ. إنّ هذا الصنيع صنيع المبطلين، و صنيع الضالين؛ أ يجعلون هذه الكتب؛ كشمس المعارف، و غيرها من كتب السحر، و الشعوذة؟!! لا. إنّ هذا قولٌ باطلٌ، و زعمٌ باطلٌ، و ادعاء باطلٌ، و يجب على من يقول هذا أن يتقي الله، و ليعلم أنّه بفعله هذا يصدّ عن سبيل الله سبحانه و تعالى، و يعد من المفسدين في الأرض، و الله سبحانه و تعالى يقول:

{و لا تفسدوا في الأرض بعد إصلاحها} [الأعراف، آية 56, 85]

و يقول:

{إنّ الله لا يحب المفسدين} [القصص، آية 77]
