Shaykh ‘Ubayd al-Jaabiree Warns Against Anwar al-Awlaki – In the aftermath of the heinous shooting at Fort Hood in Texas, the shooter’s and other Khaarijee renegades’ connection to Anwar al-Awlaki has come to light, especially in the western media. Awlaki is the common denominator in many of the recent terrorist acts and attempts that have recently occurred. Awlaki is not one to carry out such attacks himself, rather he incites and inspires young ignorant Muslims to commit such crimes in the name of Islam. So the noble Scholar of Madinah, Saudi Arabia: Shaykh ‘Ubayd Ibn ‘Abdullaah al-Jaabiree has delivered this warning against al-Awlaki. The Shaykh is presented with three of al-Awlaki’s statements that impy mass takfeer of the Muslims and the Shaykh goes onto reply to these falsehoods. The Shaykh also hits the nail on the head when he says that al-Awlaki has become polluted with the ideas of Sayyid Qutb – who is undoubtedly the catalyst for the modern day acts of terrorism committed in the name of Islam.
NOTE: Due to the importance of the topic at hand, a full English transcript of the Shaykh’s speech is to follow very soon inshaa` Allaah, as well as more speech about al-Awlaki from Shaykh Muhammad Ibn ‘Abdul-Wahhaab al-’Aqeel of al-Madinah, Saudi Arabia.
