Question:

 

Are demonstrations considered to be a means from the legitimate means of Da’wah?

Answer:

 

All praise and thanks are to Allaah, the Lord of the creations, and may He send prayers and peace upon our chief Muhammad, upon his family, and his Companions, and upon those who follow them in righteousness until the Last Day.

As to what follows:

 

Indeed, the concept of demonstrations is a new, modern issue. It was not known in the time of the Prophet (Õáì Çááå Úáíå æÓáã), nor in the time of the rightly-guided Khalifahs, nor in the time of any of the Companions (ÑÖì Çááå ÚäåãÇ).

 

Furthermore, the chaos and disorder that is included in it make it an impermissible matter, so much so that (in includes acts like) the breaking of glass, doors, etc. Results from it, also included within it, is the mixing between men and women, the youth and the elderly, and similar to that from corruptions and detestable things.

 

As for the issue of putting pressure upon the government; if it is a Muslim government, then sufficient for it as an admonishment is the Book of Allaah and the Sunnah of His Messenger (Õáì Çááå Úáíå æÓáã). This is the best of what could possibly be brought before any Muslim. If it (the government) is a disbelieving one, then it would not even care about these ‘demonstrators’ and perhaps it would behave politely with them outwardly, while inwardly remaining upon what it was on of evil. For this reason, we hold that demonstrations are detestable actions.

 

As for their statements that these demonstrations are peaceful ones, then perhaps they may be peaceful in the beginning or the first time, yet then they become destructive. So I advise the youth to follow the path of those who have proceeded, for indeed Allaah (ÓÈÃÇäå æÊÚÇáì) has praised the Muhaajireen and the Ansaar and has praised those who followed them in righteousness.

Question:

 

Is it from the means of the da’wah to stage demonstrations for the purpose of solving the problems of the Islaamic Ummah?

Answer:

 

Our religion is not a religion of chaos. Our religion is a religion of discipline, and a religion of order, and calm, and tranquility. And demonstrations are not from the actions of the Muslims and it is not something the Muslims are familiar with.

And the religion of Islaam is a religion of calm, and a religion of mercy, and a religion of discipline; not chaos, and not disorder, and not (a religion) of inciting trials (fitan). And this is the religion of Islaam.

 

And rights are earned by asking for them in the manner legislated by the Shar’iah and through ways legislated by the Shar’iah. And demonstrations cause bloodshed and cause the ruination of wealth (of the Muslims). And these matters are not permissible.
