Usamah bin Laden's Takfir of Rulers, States, Scholars and the Generality of the Muslims and His Praising of Terrorists Who Kill Innocent Women and Children
First, let us put the stake in straight away so that all sympathesizers of this vile Kharijite can be made to flee on their heels, left with no excuse or defence, lets start off with corroboration from Ibn Jibreen who confirmed that Usamah Bin Laden made Takfir of the gulf states. Refer to the full article here for documentation of the statement and we will just cite the relevant part here, Ibn Jibreen said:
ثم لما حصلت وقعة فتنة الخليج , التي في سنة 11 و حصل أن دولتنا ودولة الكويت استقدموا الأمريكان , أنكر ذلك عليهم وكأنه تجرأ على أن هذا كُفر و أنكم قد كفرتم بذلك ونحو ذلك , فأُنكر عليه هذا التكفير الذي هو تكفير الدولة ومن حولها , هذا هو الذي أنُكر عليه
Then the tribulation of the Gulf occurred, which is in the year 11 (meaning 1411H, that is 1990CE) and it transpired that our state (Saudi) and the state of Kuwait asked the Americans (for aid), and he (Usamah) rejected that from them, and it as if he ventured into the [judgement] that this is disbelief, and that you (the states of Saudi and Kuwait) have disbelieved because of that. So this Takfir was rejected against him, which is Takfir of the (Saudi) state and those surrounding it. And this is what was rejected against him...
Now Ibn Jibreen was sympathetic to these innovators and deviants, making excuses for them and allying with them, despite him pointing out their errors or having statements that otherwise refute the foundations and doctrines of these extremists (such as this one on Takfir of the rulers on account of secular laws). But the intent in quoting him here is to establish, from the statement of one whom the Takfiris have affinity to (Ibn Jibreen), that Usamah Bin Ladin is indeed upon the doctrines of the Kharijites. Now let us look at statements from Usamah Bin Laden himself:
Usamah bin Laden's Takfiri Ideology
It is from the fake piety of these Kharijites that they make Takfir of the Scholars, rulers and general Muslims (as we shall see below from Bin Laden's speech) on account of matters that do not necessitate Takfir, and this is because they are the most ignorant of people of the Shari'ah of Islam and of the Prophetic Seerah and methodology. As throughout history, these Kharijites never had people of knowledge with them, just ignoramuses and pretenders to knowledge who are driven by raw sentiments. Let us take a glimpse at the takfiri doctrine of Usamah bin Laden:
قال في مقابلة نشرتها (جريدة الرأي العام الكويتية) مع أسامة بن لادن بتاريخ 11/11/2001م سئل السؤال التالي: إذا خرج الأمريكيون من السعودية وتم تحرير المسجد الأقصى، هل ستوافق على تقديم نفسك للمحاكمة في بلد مسلم؟
فأجاب أسامة بن لادن : أفغانستان وحدها دولة إسلامية، باكستان تتبع القانون الإنكليزي، وأنا لا أعتبر السعودية دولة إسلامية،... .
In an interview with Usamah Bin Laden published by the newspaper, "al-Ra'i" (of al-Kuwait) on 11/11/2001, he was asked the following question, "If the Americans leave Saudi and the liberation of al-Masjid al-Aqsaa is completed will you agree to present yourself for trial in a Muslim land?"
إن الحكام الذين يريدون حل قضايانا ومن أهمها القضية الفلسطينية عبر الأمم المتحدة أو عبر أوامر الولايات المتحدة، كما حصل بمبادرة الأمير عبد الله بن عبد العزيز في بيروت ووافق عليها جميع العرب والتي باع فيها دماء الشهداء وباع فيها أرض فلسطين إرضاء ومناصرة لليهود وأميركا على المسلمين، هؤلاء الحكام قد خانوا الله ورسوله وخرجوا من الملة وخانوا الأمة
The rulers who desire to solve our affairs - and the most important affair is the the Palestinian issue - through the United nations or under the commands of the United States, as has occurred from the ameer, Abdullah bin Abdul-Azeez in Beirut and to which all of the Arabs have agreed to, those who sold the blood of the martyrs by way of it, and they sold the land of Palestine by way it, to please and support the Jews and America over the Muslims, (then) those rulers have been treacherous to Allaah and His Messenger and have exited from the religion and have been treachers to the Ummah...
This is not the place to elaborate on the bold lie of this ignoramus that negotiations regarding an appropriate settlement for Palestine or for truces so as to bring safety and security to men, women and children equate to apostasy. One only need to take a cursory glance at the Prophetic Seerah to see that truces, agreements, covenants and the likes are permitted in the Shari'ah in order to repel harm and bring about benefit, and the Messenger (sallallaahu alayhi wasallam) himself entered into treaties and agreements, even in situations where they were entirely one-sided and against the apparent interests of Muslims (al-Hudaybiyyah). But what we are dealing with here are ignorant non-scholars who have no grounding in Islamic knowledge and jurisprudence. The point here is that Usamah Bin Laden has made Takfir of the rulers of the Arab countries on account of something which is actually permitted in the Shari'ah and has its basis in the actions of the Prophet (sallallaahu alayhi wasallam). The greater shame is that the widespread ignorance and malaise amongst the Muslims - in not seeking a sound and thorough understanding of their religion - allows people such as Bin Laden to be treated as heroes for speaking with such rhetoric when they are in fact ignorant non-scholars.
In the same speech he also said:
كما نؤكد على الصادقين من المسلمين أنه يجب عليهم أن يتحركوا ويحرضوا ويجيشوا الأمة في مثل هذه الأحداث العظام والأجواء الساخنة لتتحرر من عبودية هذه الأنظمة الحاكمة الظالمة المرتدة المستعبدة من أمريكا وليقيموا حكم الله في الأرض، ومن أكثر المناطق تأهلاً للتحرير، الأردن والمغرب ونيجيريا وباكستان وبلاد الحرمين واليمن
Just as we emphasize to the truthful ones from the Muslims that it is obligatory upon them to move, mobilize and prepare armies (from the) ummah in the likes of these great events and aggravated atmospheres that it may liberate (itself) from servitude to these oppressive, apostate ruling authorities, enslaved by America, and that they may establish the rule of Allaah upon the Earth. And from the most worthy of regions worthy of liberation are Jordan, al-Maghreb (Morocco), Nigeria, Pakistan and the Land of the Two Sanctuaries (Saudi Arabia) and Yemen.
This is the doctrine of mass-takfir brought by Sayyid Qutb who declared all governments and states to be apostates on account of matters that do not necessitate that and Usamah Bin Laden was tutored and nurtured upon these doctrines.This is another clear proof that he is indeed a Takfiri and no one has fabricated any lie against him in this regard.
As for Usamah Bin Laden praising the killing of innocent men, women and children (including Muslims), then these are his statements of praise for terrorist activities committed in various places, in an interview with al-Jazeerah, he stated the following:
فأنا أنظر بإجلال كبير واحترام إلى هؤلاء الرجال العظام على أنهم رفعوا الهوان عن جبين أمتنا سواء الذين فجروا في الرياض أو تفجيرات الخبر أو تفجيرات شرق إفريقيا وما شابه ذلك
For I look with great respect and veneration to those mighty men who raised humiliation from the forehead of our ummah, whether those who detonated bombs in Riyaadh or bombings in al-Khobar or the bombings in East Africa and what resembles that.
This is with our knowledge that both Muslims and non-Muslims were killed in these bombings. In response to these bombings that Usamah Bin Laden is praising, the Salafi Scholar, Shaykh Ibn al-Uthaymeen (rahimahullaah) said as occurs in the cassette "al-Hadith al-Ajeeb Fil-Balad al-Habeeb":
الواجب على طلبة العلم أن يبينوا أن هذا المنهج [ أي: ما حصل من تفجير في الرياض وغيرها ] منهج خبيث، منهج الخوارج...
It is obligatory upon the students of knowledge to clarify that this methodology [meaning the bombings that took place in Riyadh and elsewhere] is a vile methodology, it is the methodology of the Kharijites.
And Shaykh Abdul-Azeez bin Baaz (rahimahullaah) said, as was published in the newspaper, al-Madeenah (25/05/1416H):
لا شك أن هذا الحادث إنما يقوم به من لا يؤمن بالله واليوم الآخر، لا تجد من يؤمن بالله واليوم الآخر إيمانا صحيحا يعمل هذا العمل الإجرامي الخبيث الذي حصل به الضرر العظيم والفساد الكبير، إنما يفعل هذا الحادث وأشباهه نفوس خبيثة مملوءة من الحقد والحسد والشر والفساد وعدم الإيمان بالله ورسوله نسأل الله العافية والسلامة
There is no doubt that this event was carried out by those who do not have faith in Allaah and the Last Day, you will not find one who has faith in Allaah and the Last Day with a sound (correct) faith doing the likes of this vile, criminal act through which great harm and great corruption has occurred. Rather, this even and its likes are performed by filthy souls that are filleld with jealousy, hatred, evil, corruption and absence of faith in Allaah and His Messenger, we ask Allaah for pardon and safety.
So you Usamah Bin Laden praising those vile criminals and you have deeply-grounded Scholars such as Ibn al-Uthaymeen and Ibn Baz describing theme as filthy souls filled with hatred and evil and upon the vile methodology of the Kharijites!
إن هذه الأحداث قد قسمت العالم بأسره إلى فسطاطين فسطاط إيمان لا نفاق فيه وفسطاط كفر أعاذنا الله وإياكم منه
Indeed these events have divided the entire world into two camps. A camp in which there is (pure) faith, complete devoid of hypocrisy and a camp of kufr (disbelief).
He means here that those who support 9/11 are in the camp of pure faith and those who do not are in the camp of disbelief and this applies to the entire Earth. This is clear Takfir of the majority of the Muslims on the earth.
These statements are a glimpse of the creed and methodology of Usamah Bin Laden and it is the creed of the Kharijites who make Takfir of rulers and sinners and who revolt and exit from their obedience and who make oppressive judgements of Takfir upon the masses of Muslims on account of issues that do not warrant that.
Finally, it should be said that the primary enmity and resentment of these people is towards "apostates" and governments in the Muslim lands, they treat such people as the greatest enemy, more worthy of being fought and killed than non-Muslim aggressors. It just so happens that non-Muslim involvement in Muslim nations has gotten in the way of their plans. If there had not been a single American, British or European soldier in any of the Muslim lands, it would have been these people that would be blowing up and killing Muslims after having accused them of apostasy and indeed that was already happening well before 9/11 in the Muslim lands. This renders futile the claim that these terrorists do what they do because of foreign policy of non-Muslim governments.
