‘Fatwa on Syria’ by 107 scholars

More than one hundred Islamic scholars representing various Islamic trends have issued a statement denouncing the Syrian regime and forbidding continued service in the Syrian army and security forces. They have also called on all Arab and Muslim states to withdraw their ambassadors from Syria and put pressure on the states which are continuing to support President Bashar al-Assad’s regime, especially Russia and China.
107 of the most well-known Muslim scholars from various countries, representing various Islamic groups and organizations have signed the statement which was issued on Tuesday 7th February 2012 / 15th Rabi’ al-Awwal 1434. They include Dr. Yusuf al-Qaradawi, the President of the International Union of Muslim Scholars, Dr. Ali Gomaa, the Grand Mufti of Egypt, and Shaikh Rached Al-Ghannouchi of Tunisia.
Shaikh Dr. Haitham al-Haddad also joins these scholars in signing this declaration as well as calling on the scholars of the United Kingdom to join the signatories. (Those interested in signing the declaration should contact MRDF via e-mail and we will add their names.)
The scholars call on Muslims and free people all over the world to support the Free Syrian Army and at the same time call on the Free Syrian Army to be disciplined in order not to stray from its mission to protect the Syrian people – they should steer clear of harming innocent people and carrying out revenge attacks.

The scholars also announced their support for any sincere effort to curtail the bloodshed in Syria and to protect the Syrian people from a prolonged civil war which could destroy the country. Such support, they said, is a fundamental Islamic requirement.  They said that they supported the holding of free elections which would express the will of the people.

TEXT OF THE STATEMENT

All praise be to God Almighty, the praise that is due to Him in all situations.  Peace and blessings be upon Prophet Muhammad and his household.

What is happening in our beloved Syria – oppression, persecution, and the spilling of the blood of innocent people by a tyrannical regime and its allies is a crime that will never be forgotten. God is certain to make the shedding of the blood of innocent people a disgrace for those who participate in the regime’s crimes or remain silent, as well as for individuals, organizations and states that support it.

With every day that passes, scores – sometimes hundreds – of people die and many times that number are injured. Families are made homeless, women are raped and sanctities are violated. The security forces commit these crimes without shame or hesitation whilst the world meets to merely discuss the situation.

The signatories of this statement reaffirm the absolute prohibition of bloodshed in the Quran and the Sunnah, and the sanctity of all the rights which Islamic law grants and protects. 
In the Quran God associates shedding the blood of innocents with unbelief, 

“Believers, never invoke any deity side by side with God, and do not take any human being’s life – [the life] which God has willed to be sacred – except for a just cause, and do not commit adultery.[1]
God promises murderers eternal hellfire, damnation, and a painful torment, and He decreed that whoever kills a person will have been considered as having killed all of mankind. Whoever saves the life of a person will be considered to have saved all of humanity. He commanded support for the weak and the oppressed. In light of this we affirm the following:
1. It is forbidden for members of the Syrian army, the security forces or other groups to kill citizens or discharge weapons in their direction. They must disobey orders to do so, even if that means being killed.  Indeed, they should desert their positions.  Those who have already killed people should remember that killing twice doubles the crime and that on the other hand, the gates of divine forgiveness are open. In the story of the man who killed ninety-nine people there is a lesson to all. They should not make light of murder, but neither should they think that murders they have previously committed seal the gates of repentance and forgiveness. It is better for them to be murdered than to be a murderer. It is infinitely better for anyone to meet God as a martyr than a murdering criminal.

We hereby rule that it is not permissible to remain in service in the Syrian army and the security forces in the current circumstances.  It is a duty to desert the forces and to stand against them.

2. We call for the support and the strengthening of the Free Syrian Army. Members of the regular army
and security forces should join it in order to protect civilians, cities, and public institutions. We also call on Muslims and on the free world to support and assist this army in any way possible, materially and morally, in order for it to carry out its mission and to organise its ranks.

3. It is a duty to support the revolutionaries in Syria in all their material and psychological requirements, so that they can successfully complete their revolution and attain their rights and their freedom.

4. We call on Arab and Islamic states to take a firm stand with those states which support the Syrian regime, in particular Russia and China, and we call on Muslim peoples and their institutions to send messages of protest to the representatives of these two states and to demonstrate in front of their embassies all over the world. They should be told that they must not turn the blood of innocent people in Syria into a tool to strengthen their economic and military presence in the world. These states must realise that the future in the region belongs to the people. Whoever places his hopes on repressive tyrannical regimes prepared to kill their own people will certainly be disappointed. Their end is near. The people will not forget the shameful stances of those who stood against them and supported their oppressors.

5. We call on the revolutionaries in Syria and the Syrian National Council to stand united and to set aside any differences they may have amongst themselves, currently, or in the future.  They should harbour sincere intention to build their future state on the basis of justice and the preservation of rights and freedoms. They should create civil institutions to preserve national unity and foster reconciliation steering clear of individual, class, or regional interests.

They also need to protect the ethnic and religious minorities which have lived for more than a thousand years as part of the Syrian people, and who have along with the majority, all the rights of citizenship. Only the regime and its institutions have responsibility for the horrific crimes which have been committed (and not the minorities they may belong to).

6. We announce that popular committees to support the Syrian revolution are being formed all over the world especially in Jordan, Lebanon, and Turkey. Such committees will also help Syrian refugees and those who have been forced out of their homes who need food, clothing, and medicine.

We pray that God grant the Syrian people immediate relief, preserve their unity, and return to them a state of security and stability under a just government which is committed to the preservation of people’s rights and freedom.

    NO FASAD ON LAND
    Bismillah
    Wa salam alaikom.
    I will disagree with all these sheikhs and agree with lot of comments here. Firstly JEWS want to see Muslim lands in chaos and isarray. They want to destroy the base of Hezbollah and ally of Iran i.e Syria. Then they will take on Iran. Syria will be a breeding ground for fanatics sponsored by saudis and backdoor cia. These fanatics will be a proponet of Jewish and wahhabi cause to combat Hezbollah and keep them busy while JEWS and USA takes on Iran. Ok thats my political views. As to Islam: Now there is no Jihad in syria because there is no flag of Islam and no unity and no call for Islamic state. Also there is no Jihad among Muslims. Destroying the peace and stability is not Jihad. War is the last choice in Islam. These rebels fanatics never wanted diplomacy and quiet talk which Assad wanted to give them. Also Assad is not like Shah phalavi or Kamal Ataturk who will break ur mosques remove ur women;s hijab etc. He is a sane man who want peaceful co-existence. Ye he may be a theif or whatever of national treasure but whose not in this world? I am firmly opposed to this rebellion. I am with peace and peaceful existence of our religious freedom which may be threatened now more than ever.
    Wa salam alaikom

  2. Comment to shuyukh

    Mistake- there is no islamic sate(s)
    Assalamu a’laikum, with all my respect to Sheikh Haitham Al Haddad. I just want to point out a mistake in this fatawa. There are national muslim states, in fact 57 of them, but there is no true islamic state. An islamic state should not exist in plural. If they can only correct that. If the author of this fatawa means Iran by Islamic state, then he should not ignore the fact that. Iran aid Bashar and sends its snipers to shoot at our brother and sisters. How can someone even call them islamic???

  3. Thank you for the information you provide.

  4. Rent a scholar/fatwa
    very sad, they have zero understanding of imperialist politics. I don’t know where to start with these guys. Do they not see the other murderous dictatorships around them? why just syria they could have named evey muslim country in this ‘fatwa’.

  5. salams, im surprised there is no comprehensive islamic solution given in this statement. i think its high time that all scholars sign their name on a statement which calls for the unification of muslims lands under the islamic khilafah and then unleashing the islamic army to wage jihad to support the muslims of syria.

    but then again, i wudnt really expect this from some scholars on this list e.g. the likes of ali goma who is a govt scholar. However, i do have immese respect for sk Haitham for his continued contribution in helping to highlight the plight of muslim around the world. i encourage the sheikh to highlight the call for khilafah in the muslim world in his discussions and talks.

  6. FATAWA
    Fatawas are just toilet paper these days. Its not working. It has no power. How many kings and presidents have killed? is there any peace? Who is the benefiheries.

  7. Mr
    FATAWA’s are just toilet papers these days. Fatwas are not working. Fatwas have no powerto implement. How many kings and presidents have been killed? Is there any PEACE?

  8. Abdullah
    I wonder if traced, how many of the above comment’s would find there way back to the squilliam foundation?

  9. Justice for all
    I don’t recall such bold and ‘brave’fatwas being issued some years back when the innocent defenceless Gaza people, women, children, babies, schools, hospitals etc were being bombed to bits from the sky and ground by war planes, helicopters, tanks using even illegal chemical weapons. It feels like the ‘scholars’ have been ‘given permission’ in this case to suit some political agenda. Correct me if I’m wrong. May Allah help us all and give victory and justice to the brothers & sisters in Syria, Palestine, Afganistan, Kashmir, Somalia and in every muslim land, Ameen.

  10. Mr
    Sir/Madam and all scholars

    What happens after Bashar. look at Tunisia,Aljeria, Egypt, Libya, Palestine,Uganda, Bosnia and Somalia and many others. What scholars have done and what is in their power to rebulild them.

    People who urinate QUR’AN or Burn the QUR’AN what scholars have done and what they can do? is it enough to pass FATAWA’s only? They supposed to do more than that which is not being done.

  11. A Trustworthy Advisor

    Advise to Dr. Haitham al-Haddad
    Dear Dr. Haitham al-Haddad, assalaamu alaykum wa rahmatullaahi wa barakaatuh
    As an earlier commenter has pointed out, the scholars of this Ummah are the inheritors of the prophets (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon all of them).
    They are the guardians of the religion, they preserve it from deviation and concealment of the truth and this is a huge responsibility.
    Remember that hiding and veiling the Truth from the people is a betrayal of the duty that Allah has entrusted the scholars with and that it is an infringement on the essence of the religion Allaah has send down for the benefit of mankind.
    Allaah says:

    “And when Allaah took a covenant from those who were given the Scripture, (saying), “You must make it clear to the people and not conceal it.””
    [Aal 'Imraan, 187]

    Why are you misleading the muslim people by placing the hope of the Ummah on the so called “free world” and those puppet administrations you describe as “Arab and Islamic states” while you are well aware of the fact that those same entities are a principal and basic element in the crimes of this regime?
    Why don’t you make clear on which religious principles or fundamentals this regime of Bashar al-Assad should be fought and overthrown?
    Is it because they kill muslims or because Bashar al-Assad is a kaafir ruler?
    Well, you know there are also muslims being killed in Afghanistan, Pakistan, Irak, Somalia and other muslim lands and you yourselve seem pleased with living under a tyrannical kaafir government who takes part in these killings, remaining silent about its crimes.
    Why is it you never wrote or signed a fatwa clarifying to those who claim to be muslim members of the British army that it is not permissible to remain in service And urge these individuals to disobey orders?
    Why don’t you, for example, call for the support and the strengthening of the Taliban in Afghanistan, Al-Shabaab in Somalia, and other islamic movements who are known for their jihad against the disbelievers and establishing the law of Allah throughout the land?
    If it is the authority of the disbelievers you fear and which prevents you from clarifying the thruth, then remember that all your affairs are being recorded, and soon you will be questioned by your Lord and their Lord Allaah; the firm possessor of strength.

    Was salaam

  12. jihad??
    Why is there no explicit mention of Jihad? for the sake of Allah without a doubt this is a situation in which jihad is needed, yet this deceleration failed to mention it although it did mention it in a ambiguous manner…

  13. Muqeet Mujtaba Ali

    Support is Mandatory!
    Assalamu Alaikum.
    In times of distress, Muslims need to support each other.
    The spirit of Islam makes a true believer raise his voice against sin and oppression.
    Forget the fatwa, by virtue of being a believer in the Qur’an and the Sunnah, we need to raise our human voice against inhuman treatment whether it comes from a single person or from the government!
    http://www.yassarnalquran.wordpress.com

  14. Oh Really?
    Why dont these ‘scholars’ also mention that is not okay to wage war or start a struggle ( jihad) against any regime unless your aim is to liberate said land and establish islam ( justice) there?
    The F(asad)SA hasnt mentioned that they are doing this for the sake of islam. These scholars have completely ignored the fact that british and qatari troops are on syrian grounds helping these rebels, is that all of a sudden okay to these scholars? or does it not matter that the u.k are STILL in afghanistan and have been commiting atrocities towards our ummah for decades and decades now ?.
    These scholars are not real scholars , they are political puppets really.
    I would advise every muslim to disregard this fatwa.

  15. Question About Islam

    Does Islam support tyrannical goverments? After all, Prophet Muhammad urged us to obey those who take otehr peoples wealth and lash their backs?

    In light of these narrations, would it be unfair to say that Islam supports dictatorships?

    In light of Syria, i know that Muslims cannot consider that regime legitimate as they claim to be Allawite. But if Bashar Al Assad was a Muslim, who enforced 5 times a day prayers, and forced women to wear Hijabthen it would of been a different story.

  16. fatwa made by puppets not scholars
    bismillah el rahman el rahim, may Allah forgive me if I am wrong but if anyone notices most or all of the scholars mentioned above are puppets of their governments or better say of the US government if they would take a stand against the west and it’s oppression their own countries would not be in the state that they are today, The Syrian government as well as the past Libyan , Iraqi, Egyptian, and Tunisian governments (ppl in power) may not be the best but it is better to have them than to give the power to some US or European hand. but like it is mentioned in the Quran/hadith lies would be believed and the tellers of true would not and times would come when holding to your religion would be like holding a burning piece of charcoal in your hands. may Allah guide us and make us victorious

  17. Extreme political naivety leads to mis guiding Fatwa’s
    Although I share the hatred of the Syrian regime, I have to question this ‘Fatwa’ on a few points.

    1.) Who are being referred to here as the ‘Free world’? Is it the likes of the US whose Secretary of State, Hilary Clinton only last year called Bashar Al Assad a ‘Reformer’? Or is it the UK who housed and educated the man while his father was carrying out the same crimes in the 80′s and 90′s? Do these scholars know nothing of how the ‘free world’ operates in securing it’s benefit at the expense of muslims and Islam? Do they believe that the ‘free world’ will welcome an islamic change in Syria?

    2.) Why now have they chosen now to issue this fatwa and why only on Syria? Is it because they can do this without being labelled on the wrong side of extremism? What about those being killed in Pakistan and Afghanistan by US drones and troops? Or the crackdown on protestors in parts of Saudi. Was it not Ali Goma who denounced the demonstrations in egypt? It seems that these fatwa’s seems to appear when there is no fear of going against establishment whether that be from their host countries or the western nations.

    3.) Does the following line also extend to the crimes committed by the regimes in the scholars host countries “Whoever places his hopes on repressive tyrannical regimes prepared to kill their own people will certainly be disappointed.”

    4.) The usage of certain, unqualified terms is extremely worrying. terms such as ‘preserve freedom’ and ‘national unity’ have sinister meanings within them. We know very clearly that the only future for Syria, indeed the whole muslim world is Islam. There must be rule by islam. Do these ‘freedoms’ and ‘national unity’ corroborate or contradict Islam? Are these scholars promoting a unity based on nationalistic, ethnic or tribal lines as opposed to Islamic lines?

    I would urge this ummah to not take in such a fatwa without critical thinking and reference to Islam.

    We should not obfuscate the point either. It is clear from Islam that not ruling by it is the cause of oppression and tyranny. Democracy or any other un islamic system of governance will fuel further misery on the people of sham.

  18. :)
    Wonderful. Would these 107 signatories now share their valiant statement, to be posted on this website, in support for the people of Somalia at the advent of a greater amount of insurgency by the UN ‘peacekeeping’ force? It would be much appreciated but for some reason I feel pessimistic that such will ever happen.

  19. Turning the jihad tap ‘on’ and ‘off’…
    Coming from the West, we had always been taught by scholars, that in issuing a fatwa the key component is to understand the contextual situation on the ground instead of extrapolating or making assumptions. Hence, the rationale behind such variant fatwas found in different lands. Therefore, its surprising that only 3 Syrian scholars have signed this recent fatwa addressed to the people of Syria and the amount of political overtones it contains.

    Also, the statement from the fatwa: “It is a duty to support the revolutionaries in Syria in all their material and psychological requirements” is a very strong statement, considering there are ‘revolutionaries’ active in all parts of the world . We’ve been told not support militant Islamic political groups due to their links to al-Qaeda (which mass-media admits is active in Syria) and for which many have been persecuted in the ‘War on Terror’ and which scholars have also denounced along with all militant Islam. However, now that its ‘politically acceptable’ by the West it’s all good? :)

    Seems like scholars, just like the olden days, get used to control the masses. Only difference is we see it in front of our own eyes and are too stupid to realize it.

  20. @least something is being done
    while there’s a lot to criticize in the above, there’s no doubt that it is something good. let Muslims a over make it known that we are against the killing of our brothers and sisters anywhere in the world. Or do we claim ‘victims’ only when the atrocities are committed by the west?

  21. odd fatwa
    Salam alaikum – while i would applaud the general sentiment behind the fatwa, nowehere in the solutions does it mention Islam. almost as though the fatwa has been written with an eye to appeasing the West.

  22. Really?
    At least someone is speaking out finally and the scholars have moved (scholars are inheritors of Prophets).

    [quote]We call on Arab and Islamic states..[/quote]
    Which islamic state are they refering to?

    Where is the call to mobilise the muslim armies? Are you kidding yourself? You will never get support from other tyrants and western govts without them having their own agenda for our muslim lands.
    It’s time we all, including scholars realised that we need to call for the implementation of Allah’s laws which has been absent for decades! This is the real solution to these problems!

    All the time in the statement it mentions people, people, people these are not just people these our brothers and sisters in Islam why arent scholars saying fight for muslims, sounds like a letter authorised by the muslim hating west!

  23. It’s about time
    Assalam Aleykum warahmatuLLAHI wabarakatuH… It’s about time something is done infant this decision has come very late….our brothers n sisters in Syria are bein tortured, raped, killed and kidnapped everyday and the rest of the Arab world is waiting for the kuffar to intervene and help! Have they ever helped any other country without hidden intentions and agenda? Why the kuffar and not the Arab world? The Arab world should cut social ties with Russia and china for supporting the Kaffir who is still clinging to the presidency in Syria…

  24. Can someone please explain to me, why the people in the picture are doing sujood to the coffins? This is not from the sunnah. maybe I’ve missed something otherwise can you please get the picture down. Also I’m not sure we have any true scholars in the UK, but again if someone can clear my misconception that would be great.

    Jazakallah khair

  25. Fatwa of Politics
    Please learned “SCHOLARS” abstain from issuing FATWAS OF POLITICS.

  26. Fatwa against those who have become friends of the Jews & Christians
    Allah says in the Quran not to take the Jews and Christians as friends (or protectors) and that those who take them as friends become one of them. So how about a Fatwa against those regimes who are MOST FRIENDLY with the USA? Will THIS be forthcoming from these LEARNED SCHOLARS? Let’s wait and see just how HONEST and COURAGEOUS these LEARNED “SCHOLARS” are.

  28. Devoid of Grey Matter
    Salam.
    Mashallah very quick to take a position on Syria which one does not even understand fully and yet not an iota of any meaningful stands on the [s]Jewish[/s] Zionist Entity for Palastine, Lebanon and Syria.
    Muslims are either brain dead or Munafiqs hiding within us. Sura e Munafiqoon was not only for the sahaba at the time of the Holy Prophet. There are munafiqs even present amongst us as at the present time.

  29. Dr
    Alhamdulillah for this guidance, which may give some clarity to those in Syria who are uncertain what to do. However, it shows an unawareness of the dangers it invites when it says in Clause 2: “We also call on … the free world to support and assist this army in any way possible”. Once the US and European armies become involved the number of deaths from this conflict will double or triple as will the material damage. Clause 4 ignores the fact that it is the Russian and Chinese vetoes that have so far protected the Syrian people from indiscriminate aerial bombing by the US and friends, which would have caused that death and destruction. It shows awareness, in Clause 5 of the disaster that has befallen the people of Libya as a result of the lack of organisation, single-mindedness, discipline, and concern for human rights among the revolutionaries there – but gives no guarantee that things will be any better in Syria.
    May Allah help the people of Stria and all Muslims all over the world who sincerely wish to live according to His guidance in all respects.
