Al-Bouti News Statement

In the name of Allah the most gracious the most merciful,

Allah the most high says:
“Everyone shall taste death. And only on the Day of Resurrection shall you be paid your wages in full…”[1]
Following the news of the Masjid Al Iman attack that occurred in the evening of the 21st of March 2013, claiming the life of Mohammad Saeed Ramadan Al-Bouti and a number of his students, the Association of Syrian Scholars maintains the following stance:
With our condemnation to the stance of Al-Bouti towards the Syrian revolution and his support of the wicked regime, justifying its criminality against its citizens we:
-Denounce the targeting of mosques, the people of knowledge and all civilians while disassociating the Mujahedeen, who are resiliently defending Islam, blood and honour from carrying out such actions.
-Affirm that this action was carried out by the Assad regime that has become accustomed to targeting scholars and notable personalities, after having expended its requirement of them or for fear of their diminishing support. In succession the Syrian regime has assassinated an individual supportive of the regime, namely Al-Bouti and a scholar in its opposition, namely Sheikh Riad Al-Saab, by this attempting to cause dissension and divide in Syria.
For these reasons we appeal to the Muslims to keep away from discord and division. Al-Bouti has returned to Allah, the most just and the most wise while the regime continues in its barbarianism and tyranny. It is our duty to remain vigilant of the regime’s tricks and deceptions, turning to our trustworthy scholars to preserve the unity of the people of Syria and the Muslims worldwide.

  1. Jazakum Allah Khair
    Alhamdulilah for scholars of Islam. The words in this article are enough to end any dispute on this matter and help us return our focus on the real issues.

  2. Wa HAsratah
    Yeh Hamid! I wish you have said that to the Assad’s army to fight against the Yahuud to get back their stolen land! ALJOULAN…
    Or you guys become blind when it comes against Al-Assad?

  3. No ordinary attack
    Let me tell you something about the Baathis of Syria (and Iraq). They don’t have the balls nor the “faith” to blow themselves up in a suicide bombing operation. It’s not their technique and they are cowards. There is only one possible culprit in such an attack and it is always the neo-salafist extremist. Always. To even try to say it was someone from the pro-Assad people is ridiculous. Who are you trying to fool?

    The neo-salafis are the new khawarij. They are the enemies of Islam and the enemies of Allah. Both Assad and the khawarij are evil, but Assad is the lesser of the two evils, and I’m sure Al-Bouti knew this and that is why he maintained his support for the current, cruel but benign regime over that of the khawarij.

    Congratulations to Al-Bouti who died a martyr rather than see the horrors of that will come when Assad will fall and your khawarij will lead the genocide of various populations in Syria and usher in the beginning of the next Middle-Eastern conflict that will cost millions of lives. May Allah protect us all from their evil.

  4. basically we should all put our heads down in shame and let people kick our backsides??? is that from the Sunnah or is it to ensure that enemies of Islam do not make any comments of barbarism against Islam

  5. 'Umar Abdessalaam

    ‘A safe and good country’
    Hamid, how can you say that?

    I’m quite sure the families of those people who were kidnapped, tortured and killed in the last 40 (forty) years for disagreeing with the Assad regime would disagree with you.

    Especially those who remember the slaughter in Hama in 1982.

  6. regime
    I believe that islam is against blood shed no matter what,the people who are fighting against the syrian regime have created FITNA and of course the regime has the right to defend itself.Syria was safe and good country until those who call themselves Mujahedeen are the cause of thousands of innocent people’s lives.The Mujahedeen should go fight in Palestine as our brothers there are being slaughtered by the Zionist and no one says a word.
