Short reminder at Masjid as-Salafi, Ramadhan 22/07/14
- Boycotting certain supermarkets/retailers to aid Palestine.
- The Prophet Salallaahu alayhi wasalam and trading with non-Muslims.
- Correct stance of a Muslim regarding Boycotting.
- Muftis in the West issuing fatwas without knowledge and authority.
- Returning the affairs of the Ummah to the true Scholars.
- How to aid our brothers and sisters in Palestine and any other place wherein they face difficulties.
The following articles, authored by the speaker, should be read in conjunction with this talk to give the listener a clearer understanding:
- Shaikh Al-Albaanee on Financial Dealings with those at war with the Muslims & Palestine
- Boycotting the Goods of the Jews & Trading with the Enemies – By the Scholars: Bukhaaree, Ibn Hajr, Fawzaan.
These articles contextualise the topic under discussion and the importance of returning back to the scholars in times of calamity and fitan.
Since Hamas is mentioned by the speaker, then the reader should also know the reality of this group and its objectives and its opposition to the Sunni methodology:
- Ikhwani Hamas Leaders, Ismael Haniyeh and Khaled Mashal, Paying Respect at the Tomb of of the Shi’ite Raafidee, Ayatollah Khomeini
On the 19th July 2014, days before this lecture, the respected speaker sent out the following series of tweets to people on his twitter account – clearly showing that our brothers and sisters in Palestine who are under attack and being oppressed by the tyrants must be aided both by supplication and by financial aid:
1. The #Salafi Scholars state: The Muslims should supplicate to Allah seeking His help & protection for the Muslims of #Palestine.
2. The #Salafi Scholars stated: Muslims should make du’aa to Allaah to give relief to the oppressed Muslims in #Palestine from tyranny.
3. #Salafi Scholars state: The Muslims should aid the suffering #Palestinians with humanitarian aid & medical supplies thru proper channels.
4. #Salafi Scholars state: #Palestine Humanitarian aid should be sent thru registered or government organisations so funds are not diverted.
5. The #Salafi Scholars do not support the ideology and methodology of #Hamas or the “Muslim Brotherhood” in #Palestine or elsewhere.
6. Aid the #Palestinian people, #Salafis should not donate to the Ikhwani charity groups operating in the West who give support to #Hamas.
7. It was reported last week “Saudi King Abdullah ordered immediate assistance to the Palestinian Red Crescent worth more than $50 million.”
8. One can donate thru the #Palestinian Red Crescent, a recognised and legitimate humanitarian organisation. Let us help the suffering.

So there is no question that the Salafis support Muslims under attack by the enemy. But that does not change the fact that rectification lies in returning back to the methodology and the path of the Prophet and his Companions.
