Ahmad an-Najmee was asked...
Shaykh what is the position of the Muslim from that which
occurred in Iraq? And have you any advice for the Muslims
in general and those living in the west specifically?"
reality is that this matter is saddening. And there is no
power nor might except by Allaah. And the Muslims do not have
any strength in their hands, and they do not have anything
in their hands (at all). So there is nothing upon them except
to supplicate for those weak ones who are being slaughtered.
As for Saddaam Hussain, then he is a Socialist Ba'thist -
and refuge is with Allaah and his creed is evil. However,
he has harmed the Muslims, those who are being slaughtered
for nothing they have done. So there is nothing upon them
except to supplicate for them, and there is no doubt that
supplication has its role (and effect), and Allaah, the Sublime
and Exalted, is the one in whose Hands all the affairs lie."
