Sulaymaan ar-Ruhaylee mentions...
What is obligatory upon the Muslims is to make recourse to
Allaah, the Mighty and Majestic, and to ask Him to protect
the Muslims and that He wards off the evil from them, and
that suffices the Muslims against the evil of their enemies
and their plots. Just as it is obligatory uopn the Muslims
to return backto their Lord, and that their reflect upon their
conditions and about what has led them to this humiliation.
that every single individual returns back to check his own
soul, and to check his adherence to his deen, and that he
aids Allaah, the Mighty and Majestic, as it relates to himself,
so that Allaah, the Mighty and Majestic may aid him against
his enemy, and this is a vital matter.
it is not befitting that we occup the Muslims away from this
mighty objective, which is checking the soul, and aiding Allaah
the Mighty and Majestic in regards to one's soul, so that
the aid of Allaah, the Mighty and Majestic, for the Ummah
can be actualised.
as it is obligatory upon everyone to return back to the Scholars
and to revolve around them, and to take whatever they direct
towards, because they are the most knowledgeable of that by
which Allaah, the Mighty and Majestic, rectifies the Ummah,
and they are most precise, most understanding and their directions
of advice are better and safer.
it is not permissible to aid the Kuffar in this matter, and
as for the ruling concerning what has happened, then this
is for the Scholars, and there is detail to his saying (i.e.
the questioner's), "a nullifier from the nullifiers of
Islaam, or not", because applying a nullifier to a specific
individual has conditions that are necessarily required, and
this matter returns back to verifying the base, origin (of
the ruling), and explaining the condition of the person, so
that a judgement can be passed upon him that is appropriate
and befitting to his situation. And Allaah knows best."
