A statement for the Eminence Sheikh Yusuf Al-Qaradawi, president of IUMS about the Conference "Who are the Sunnis and the community," in Grozny


Published on 01 Sep 2016


Praise be to Allah, and peace and blessings be upon the final Messenger of Allah; Mohammad, and upon his family and companions and allies. 



The scholars are the heirs of the prophets, who are the trustees of Allah, {for to them was entrusted the protection of ALLAH’s Book, and they were witnesses thereto} [Al-Maidah: 44]. ALLAH has decided that one of the characters of the honest scholars is the fear of ALLAH Al-mighty in secret and in public, and in the activated and impeller. He says: {it is only those who have knowledge among His slaves that fear ALLAH} [Fater: 28]. And warned them and warned the believers of the fear of someone else but Him {Therefore fear not men but fear Me and sell not My Verses for a miserable price} [Al-Maidah: 44], as well as to bend them the taller, or soften them a channel in front of the oppressors and arrogant in the land without right, and the Almighty described the Rabbinic scholars saying: {Those who convey the message of ALLAH and fear Him, and fear none save ALLAH. And sufficient is ALLAH as a Reckoner} [Al-Ahzab: 39].


The media passed the news of an Islamic Conference, to be held in Grozny, capital of Chechnya, a subsidiary state of the federal Russia, it is titled: (Who are the Sunnis and the community?).


This conference has bothered me from its objectives and title, and the nature of the invitees and participants, as for every sincere jealous of scholars of Islam and the nation, and I saw and believe that what it could be described as a reciprocating conference. ALLAH Almighty says: {cooperate on righteousness and piety and do not cooperate in sin and aggression} [Al-Maidah:  2]. they did not collaborate on the righteousness or piety. Like those who took a mosque for harm and disbelief and the distinction between believers.


The Conference held under the auspices of president of Chechnya who is follower of the Russian government, at a time when Russian planes and missiles is killing fellow Syrians, and taking their lives, and destroy their homes over their heads under the pretext of fighting terrorism, which is made by them, they are most deserving this description, which is more appropriate for them.


Then the final statement was expressing a chasm experienced by participants and sponsors for this miserable conference, instead of trying to assemble the Sunnis and the community together in front of the deviants parties of Islam, politically accepted by the world, and being raised with money and weapons, it precludes the Sunnis for the people of the modern and the Salafists from the (Wahhabis), they are a key component of the Sunnis and the community; and it had written on our nation to remain in this circle of endless, negate each other, at the time where our enemies are cooperating, and who are departed from our denomination and our faith, to destroy the Muslim countries one after one.


And the Nation of Islam-though they are the people of the Sunnah-  who are believers in Allah and His Messenger and His Book …and those are who do not acknowledge the heresy of takfiri, and get out of the Quran and the Sunnah. They are all the Muslims except a few categories that repelled from the path of ALLAH.


Our nation, which stretched her wounds, and branched out her pain, no longer had the welfare of the time, to re-old historical disputes between Sunnis components Community, while moaning sanctities, and violated sanctities, liquidate their blood in Palestine, Syria and Yemen, and others.


Times have exceeded those sub-scientific disagreements in matters of faith: DETAILS issues, and interpretation, and the mandate, which is looking inside the books, and classrooms in the scientific atmosphere and create a refined, though those who live outside the times want to raise it and fueled it again, and want to distract the nation by its past not the present, and its yesterday not this day and future, tearing the nation in to parties and sects, at a time when the East and West are gathering on it, and the enemies of yesterday organizes with them, to catch their country from its edges.


We have not heard from those who appointed themselves the representatives of the Sunnis and the Community a  word of objection to what Iran is doing and its lackeys, from the Hezbollah militia in Syria, and the Houthis in Yemen and killing and seizing and destroy, and sent preachers to Africa and Asia to mislead the Sunni people. Not a word of denial to what Russia is doing, and who walk around, and there is no wonder.


The conference issued the Sultan scholars, and the elders of shame, who kept silent about Muslim blood spills wrongfully Russia and its lackeys, and those who cheered for dictators in the Arab world, and incited by the bloodshed, support the Sisi in Egypt and Bashar in Syria, and Ali Abdullah Saleh and the Houthis in Yemen, if they beautifies their conference - unfortunately – with some good scholars from here and there.


And for us to ask: What happens after determining the Sunnis? Are we going to hear from you a voice against the Shiites and Nasiriyah in Syria, Yemen and Iraq?!


 We thank ALLAH Almighty for the awareness of the Islamic masses of the nation and its youth, they wanted their convention a war on the true Islam and the light of truth and advocates of freedom, God confounds them, and their elder repudiated from their final statement, so the Conference born dead, {And whomsoever Allah disgraces, none can honor him. Verily, ALLAH does what He wills.} [Hajj: 18].


I would like to emphasize that I have I received a delegation representing the Chechen scholars in the year 2010, and invited me to a conference in Chechnya entitled (Islam a religion of peace and love), and I apologized, and told me that they want the gathering of efforts, and bring peace and reconciliation, and that the conference is held under the patronage of the President of the Republic, and commended him and they asked me to prepare the word for this conference, and I mention their president in it, I speak about him as they spoke to me about him. Then in that time there was not on the Chechen land any kind of jihad, and fabricators to say: I betrayed the Mujahideen on the Chechen land with my word, and Syria did not suffer the wounded suffer from continuous Russian bombardment, which these officials in Chechnya declared its support.


Then I drew me more than once an open invitation at any time to visit Chechnya and Russia and the Islamic Republics there, on a private plane sent by president of Chechnya, but I refused, and thank Allah Almighty for his success.




{Our Lord! Punish us not if we forget or fall into error, our Lord! Lay not on us a burden like that which You did lay on those before us, our lord! Put not on us a burden greater than we strength to bear. Pardon us and grant us Forgiveness. Have mercy on us. You are our Maula (patron) and give us victory over the disbelieving people.} [Al-Baqarah: 286].


{Our Lord! In You alone we put our trust, and to You we return in repentance, and to You is (our) final return. Our Lord! Make us not a trial for the disbelievers, and forgive us, Our Lord! Verily, You, only You, are the ALL-Mighty, the ALL-Wise} [Mumtahina 4-5]
