Shaykh Saalih al-Fowzaan’s Praise and Recommendation

Reference: Refer to scan of Shaykh’s recommendation

In the Name of Allaah, the All Compassionate, the All Merciful

All Praise is due to Allaah [alone], and may the prayer and salutation be upon the Messenger of Allaah, our Prophet Muhammed, and whomsoever follows him.

To proceed: So I have read the refutation[1] of Shaykh ‘Alee ibn Fahad ibn ‘Abdillaah Abaa Butayn regarding the doubts [raised by the] book “As’ilat ath-Thowrah” (Questions of the Revolution) of Dr. Salmaan al-‘Owdah; And I found it to be a thorough refutation and disclosure of the dangerous doubts [such as incorrectly] justifying the staging of revolutions in Islaam, [thereby leading to] revolting [against the established Muslim ruler] – that which the Prophet (sal-Allaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) has warned against.

However, when Dr. Salmaan found the ahaadeeth referring to the obligation of listening to and obeying [the established Muslim leader], and the prohibition of [staging] revolutions against the [established] ruler in Islaam; When he found them contradicting his way, which he was of the opinion of, he began to [falsely] interpret and change them from their [correct] meaning, just as is the way of the misguided sects.

And I hope that Allaah rewards Shaykh ‘Alee for what he has written, and he causes it to be of benefit, and that He [causes the] return of Shaykh Salmaan to the truth and that which is correct.

And may the prayer and salutation of Allaah be upon our Prophet Muhammad, and his family and [all] his [noble] companions.

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

الحمد لله. والصلاة والسلام على رسول الله نبينا محمد و من والاه.

وبعد : فقد اطلعت على رد الشيخ علي بن فهد بن عبدالله أبا بطين على شبه كتاب “أسئلة الثورة” للدكتور سلمان العودة. فرأيته كشفا مفندا لشبهات خطرة تبرر قيام الثورات في الإسلام وشق عصا الطاعة مما حذر منه النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم. ولكن الدكتور سلمان لما رأى أن الأحاديث الواردة بوجوب السمع والطاعة وتحريم الثورة على الولاة في الإسلام، لما رآها تعترض طريقه فيما ذهب إليه صار يؤولها ويصرفها عن مدلولها كما هو منهج الفرق الضالة.

وأرجو أن يثيب الله الشيخ علياً على ما كتب وينفع به، وأن يرد الشيخ سلمان إلى الحق والصواب وصلى الله وسلم على نبينا محمد وآله وصحبه.
