Fatwas of Ibn Baaz Vol. 6 page 122
Q 6: Is it permissible to curse the ruler of Iraq (i.e. Saddam) taking into consideration that some people say as long as he says the two testimonies of Islam, no one should curse him? In addition, is he regarded a disbeliever? What is the opinion of Your Eminence on those who say that Saddam is a disbeliever?
A: He is a disbeliever even if he utters the testimonies of Islam or offers Salah (prayer) and Sawm (fasting) as long as he does not disavow the principles of atheistic Ba`thism and declare his repentance to Allah from them and what they call for.
This is because Ba`thism involves disbelief and aberrance. He is regarded as a disbeliever, unless he declares so.
A similar case to this is that of `Abdullah ibn Ubay, who is regarded as a disbeliever despite that he used to perform Salah with the Prophet (peace be upon him) and said the testimonies of Islam. This did not help him owing to his disbelief and hypocrisy.
Accordingly, those who say the testimony of Islam amongst the advocators of disbelieving doctrines such as Ba`thists, communists and the like while offering Salah, which are done for worldly purposes, these things will not save them from disbelief as they are based on hypocrisy. Allah prepared for the hypocrites a severe torment in the Hereafter as indicated in Allah’s Saying, Verily, the hypocrites will be in the lowest depth (grade) of the Fire; no helper will you find for them.
Saddam claims that he is Muslim and says that he fights in the cause of Allah but this does not avail him or clear him from hypocrisy. He must declare that his repentance is to Allah of what he believed in and proves this with actions, so as to be regarded as a true believer. Allah (Glorified be He) said, Except those who repent and do righteous deeds, and openly declare (the truth which they concealed). Repentance involves both verbal and actual reform. If one of these elements is not fulfilled, a person is not truthful in his repentance. Accordingly, if Saddam is truthful in his claims of Islam, then he must disavow Ba`thism, leave Kuwait, return rights to their owners, declare his repentance of Ba`thism and its principles of disbelief and misguidance. I recommend those Ba`thists to return to Allah in repentance and adopt real Islam with its principles in word and action, outwardly and inwardly. They should be on the straight path of the religion of Allah and believe in Allah, His Messenger, and the Hereafter if they are truthful.
However, pretense and hypocrisy is of no value to Allah or the believers. Allah (may He be Exalted and Glorified) says: Verily, the hypocrites will be in the lowest depth (grade) of the Fire They (think to) deceive Allâh and those who believe, while they only deceive themselves, and perceive (it) not! In their hearts is a disease (of doubt and hypocrisy) and Allâh has increased their disease. A painful torment is theirs because they used to tell lies. And when it is said to them: “Make not mischief on the earth,” they say: “We are only peace-makers.” Verily! They are the ones who make mischief, but they perceive not. And when it is said to them (hypocrites): “Believe as the people (followers of Muhammad صلى الله عليه وسلم, Al-Ansâr and Al-Muhajirûn) have believed,” they say: “Shall we believe as the fools have believed?” Verily, they are the fools, but they know not.
This is the situation of Saddam and the like of those who declare Islam hypocritically and deceptively while they affect Muslims with kinds of harm and injustice and adhere to the atheistic Ba`thist belief.

Question: Last time I was in Kuwait, and likewise from some brothers in Saudi Arabia, I often heard how they say that some persons will be your successors. Their evidence are some of your cassette tapes or occasions where you praise some brothers. What do you say to these brothers?
Shaykh al-Albânî: I hope that I am succeeded by people who are better than me. I have however not mentioned anyone and neither will I do that. What is the purpose of it all?
Questioner: They want that a certain individual gets attention.
Shaykh al-Albânî: Allâh knows better about that. They alleged that I had said so about our brother [Abû Ishâq] al-Huwaynî. But I have not said it and I will neither say it.
Questioner: It is said that you have mentioned Shaykh Muqbil.
Shaykh al-Albânî: Yes, I have praised him. But I did not say that he is a successor.
Yusuf Estes and the Shiite
[Moosaa Richardson Hafidahullah]
Yusuf Estes has openly published and invited his followers to read Iranian Shiite literature on his “IslamNewsRoom” website as recently as August 2012. His private claims that he has retracted such deviance are baseless. After promoting the writings of a Raafidhee Ayatollah, from the most deviant of the Shia sects, he only removed the article after he was exposed. He spoke not a word against the Shia after openly propagating their writings.
Additionally, his private advice to Muslims at that time included references to the Ayatollah, Muhammad Hadi Marifat, a senior Iranian Raafidhi figure, as one of “the true scholars of Islam”. This has been documented clearly on pp.52-58 of the highly informative PDF: Yusuf Estes and the Quran. Ahlus-Sunnah, be warned of this two-faced man.
Amazingly, Yusuf Estes’ descriptions of the Shiite can be accurately summarized in the following few points:
- They follow the Quran and Sunnah.
- Their Iranian “Ja’fari” Math-hab is one of the five legitimate math-habs in Islam, which Muslims are allowed to ascribe themselves to.
- Their ascription, ”Shiite”, is valid linguistically (while Sunni and Salafi are not).
- Their scholars (i.e. Ayatollahs) can be referred to as “true scholars of Islam”.
- Speaking against them causes headaches and division in the Ummah.
- He has studied under Shiite scholars and benefitted from them. (on Peace TV)
Yusuf Estes Excludes Himself From Ahlus-Sunnah
Despite all the double-talk and confusion being spread by this man, one thing can be clearly understood from Yusuf Estes – He is definitely not a Sunni, by his own explicit admission (as quoted above):
When I come back to the country, they’ll ask me, ‘Are you a Sunni?’ I say, ‘No, I am not.’
The Muslims are grateful to Yusuf Estes for being clear on at least one issue. May Allah guide him.
The Scholars Warn the Muslims Against Yusuf Estes
Shaykh ’Ubayd al-Jaabiree, retired professor from the University of al-Madeenah, warned the Muslims against Yusuf Estes, describing him very accurately as:
He is either astray, leading others astray, or he has lost his mind. [Source]
Another scholar, Shaykh ’Abdur-Rahmaan Muhyiud-Deen, former Mufti at the Prophet’s Masjid, said:
Astray, leading others astray… he does not know about Islam… Satan has spoken upon his tongue…[Source]
Please do not take the deviations of Yusuf Estes lightly. Many of his errors are extremely dangerous, reaching the level of disbelief in Allah’s Religion. Protect yourself by reading the articles here on this website, and help protect your brothers and sisters in Islam by recommending this website. May Allah bless and protect you.

Whomever has his car blocking the street, go and remove it.
The questioner asks we want from you to explain the situation in Libya from the Shariah (legislated) perspective, and also to utilize the Salaaf Methodology to answer the question, and the refutation of the transgressors.
The situation in Libya isn’t the first of its kind to occur in history, in our present time and era.
As you know the country of Libya from the time the Senussiyyah kingdom collapsed at the hands of al Gadaafi which revealed his kufur and his apostasy on different occasions.
The man denounces the Sunnah. What does he denounce ? The Sunnah.
He then said that he doesn’t denounce the Sunnah. He latter said that he denounces the speech of the Sunnah and not the actions of the Sunnah.
Then he said that he denounces the actions and speech of the Sunnah – as he plays around.
An instance came where he mocked the Hijaab and labeled it as being from the works of the shaytaan.
Meaning he (shaytaan) is the reason why Adaam and Huwaah were forced to conceal their naked bodies, thus the reason for the Hijaab.
He also said what ? This and that, him and her, he said she said. What type of nonsense speech is this ?
This is the speech of the empty headed Gadaafi. He also has from his own rhetoric, that prove his hereticism and his kufur in Allaah.
Our Shaykh, Shaykh Rabee’ said that he describes him as being from the rulers of the Faatamee that thought he controlled the will of Allaah.
He used to be from the lunatics from amongst the rulers.
He used to think that he was a god and with that, he used to ride a donkey even though he had different breeds of horses. He had everything. He used to ride what ? A donkey.
At one instance he forbade women from going out in the day time. They were only allowed to go out at night time. He denied his people to sell and buy in the day time, and to sell and buy in the night time.
At one instance he forced the christians and the jews to accept Islaam. Whom ever didn’t accept Islaam he killed them.
So a lot of them entered Islaam in hypocrisy then he allowed them to return back to the kufur once more.
This is how it was with him, he had different moods.
Another instance he went to the markets. He went to denounce the evil, meaning the ones that cheat the people.
Do you know how he used to denounce the evil ?
He used have from his servants, one of his flimsy servants, walk with him in the market.
If he saw someone that was cheating the people he would order his servant to rape him.
This is evil. He commits evil in name of denouncing the evil. He is a lunatic. This is strange. Indeed he has committed many strange and weird things. He is a criminal. Read more…
Transcript of above Video:
There is a group amongst us (here in the UK) called Hizb-ut-Tahreer. They call for the Islamic Khilaafah and they speak against the scholars. How can they be refuted and what is the way towards achieving the proper Islamic Khilaafah?
Answer by Imam Muqbil (rahimahullaah) :
All praise be to Allaah and may the peace and blessings be on our Prophet Muhummed, His Family, Companions, and whom succeeds them. I testify that there is no deity worthy of worship except Allaah – alone and with no partner. And I testify that Muhummed is His slave and Messenger. To proceed:
With regard to the issue of partisanship, the people are divided into two parties: The party of Ar-Rahmaan (Allaah) and the party of ash-Shaytaan (the Devil).
So the party of ar-Rahmaan – it is not permissible for them to be divided amongst themselves.
Allaah, the Most High, says: “Verily those who divide their Religion and break up into sects, you have no concern with them in the least.” [Surah Al-An'aam: 159]
And the Prophet (sallAllaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said: “The Jews split up into seventy-one or seventy-two sects. And the Christians split up into seventy-one or seventy-two sects. And my ummah will split up into seventy-three sects.”
This hadeeth was reported by Abu Dawood from the narration of Abu Hurairah (radyAllaahu ‘anhu). Abu Dawood reported a similar hadeeth from Mu’awiyah (radyAllaahu ‘anhu) and in it there occurs:
“All of them (these sects) will be in the Hellfire, except one sect.” They asked: “Who is it O Messenger of Allaah?” He (sallAllaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said: “The Jamaa’ah.”
Then he said: “And there will indeed come a people of whom vain desires will move them just as rabies moves around the one it affects.”
And what the Prophet (sallAllaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) warned us of has already come to pass, for the desires have become many and the parties have multiplied.
And Allaah, the Lord of Glory, says in His Noble Book: “And hold on tightly to the Rope of Allaah, all of you, and be not divided.” [Surah Aali 'Imraan: 103]
The Prophet (sallAllaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said: “You will indeed follow the ways of those who came before you, step by step, even if they were to enter the hole of a lizard you would enter into it (after them).”
We said: “O Messenger of Allaah, do you mean the Jews and the Christians?” He (sallAllaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said: “Who else?”
And the Prophet (sallAllaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said: “The beleiver with respect to another beleiver is like a building, each part supports the other.”
As for these parties, then they chase each other away and they attack one another.In fact, if one were to say: “These splitting into parties has actualized what the enemies of Islaam have desired from splitting up the ummah,dividing its ranks and weaking its strength” he would be speaking truthfully.
Therefore, (I say that) Hizb-ut-Tahreer is a hizb (party) that is wicked. Perhaps you think this is a grave statement since I am the first one to say such a thing, but it is proper that I introduce such a statement.So I say again, it is indeed a wicked party, which began in Jordan. They split away from the Ikhwaan al-Muslimoon, who wrote to them requesting them to return but they refused to go back to them. Their leader was Taqee-ud-Deen an-Nubhaanee.
Concerning the matters related to Creed, they say: “Nothing should be accepted except for that which conforms to the intellect.” So if there is found some hearing (of a report), then this hearing must be eliminated.That is why they reject the Punishment in the Grave and they reject that the Dajjaal will be brought forth. Likewise they have no concern for teaching good etiquettes nor with spreading knowledge. So it is a party that cultivates its followers upon seeking after and studying politics, which opposes the Religion.
It was once said to the leader of this group: “Why don’t we see any schools for the memorization of the Qur’aan in your party?” So he responded: “I do not want to produce dervishes!”
Naa’am my brothers by Allaah. They rely on politics only, and they do not rely on knowledge and etiquettes, nor on the heart-softening narrations.
And with regard to issues of Fiqh, they make it permissible for a man to shake hands with a woman that is not related to him.
And they say that it is permissible for a woman to be a leader and that she can sit in a governing council (majlis ash-shuraa).
In fact they even allow a disbeliever to be in the governing council and that he can be given general leadership positions ! So it is a deviant group that has surpassed the extent of deviance.
And I am surprised at those who join and adhere to this party.
We even have them in Yemen. Hizb al Tahrir – some of them are the party of the treacherous.
My brothers ! are they the party of liberation or the party of the treacherous ?
Naa’am my brothers, they label themselves as being the party of liberation, and in fact they are the party of the treacherous.
So I do not only advise every brother to stay far away from this group, but rather also to warn against it. It is an onligation upon us to warn against them.
And if it were not that we make excuses for them, that they misinterpret the texts, we would have said that they were disbelievers.
Because they reject the Punishment in the Grave and they reject the coming of the Maseeh ad-Dajjaal.
And their leader says that he does not like to teach his students the Qur’aan so that they will not come out as dervishes.
