Rebelling against the Unjust Ruler by Sheik Rabee

Q: What is your view on the one who says, ?Verily the khawarij are only those who rebel against the ?just ruler?, as for the one who rebels against the ?unjust ruler? then they are not the khawarij?

A: Abdul Malik ibn Marwan was an oppressive ruler and he killed Abdullah ibn Az- Azubair and his commander destroyed the kaba; and Abdullah ibn Umar gave him the pledge of allegiance after all that. And the Sahaba (companions of the Prophet, peace and blessing are upon him) that were present gave him the pledge of allegiance. By ALLAH, he was oppressive may ALLAH have mercy upon him, he had some good with him and he had some merits and he conquered some lands for the Muslims and he had some jihad; but by ALLAH he was an oppressive tyrannical ruler. And the Messenger of ALLAH peace and blessings are upon him, taught, taught, taught; and the text can be found in
Sahih Muslim and Sahih Bukari and other than that.

?Obey them as long as they establish the prayer amongst you. (Obey them) in that which you like and dislike. He (the Prophet peace and blessings are upon him) said, ?Obey them as long as they establish the prayer amongst you?. They said, ?Shall we not make war against them with our swords?? He (the Prophet, peace and blessings are upon him) said, ?No, as long as they pray.?
Oppressive rulers, but despite this the Prophet, peace and blessings are upon him, ordered (the Muslims) to be patient with them and he did not allow rebelling against them. And the one that rebels against them (the rulers) has rebelled against the Muslims and the one that rebels should be killed even if he rebelled against an unjust ruler.

This is the understanding of the khawarij, they say: The person is not considered a khawarij unless he rebels against a just ruler. And they view that Ali, may ALLAH be pleased with him, was unjust. And they view Uthman, may ALLAH be pleased with him, as being unjust.
And those that endorse Sayd Qutb view Uthman as being unjust, even if they conceal it. And if this is not the case then why do they endorse Sayd Qutb the one who discredits the justice of Uthman? And he nullifies his (Uthman?s) leadership, and the leadership is not nullified except in the case of disbelief, because he (Sayd Qutb) is a takfeeri, the leader of the takfeeris! And he was not able to loudly proclaim his takfeer of Uthman. And he (Sayd Qutb) combined the concept of the khawarij and the raafidah, and he carried the banner of the khawarij and the banner of the raafidah and other banners also; he combined all these together and he deemed Uthman may ALLAH be pleased with him, unjust such that we can rebel against him, and (he deemed) Ali as unjust such that we could rebel against him, and like this. And Dhul Khuwaisira you saw how he discredited the justice of the Prophet, peace and blessing are upon him.

So the affairs becomes such that there is no criteria, the one who is just to you, is not just according to the one who rebels against him!
Therefore the solution is, as long as the ruler is in the circle of Islam, and the Prophet, peace and blessing are upon him, precisely defined it, even if this ruler is wicked and oppressive as long as he remains in the circle of Islam, as long as they establish the prayer it is not permissible to rebel against him; have you understood this? This is the ruling of ALLAH the ruling of the Prophet peace and blessing are upon him, not the ruling of the foolish.

Narrated Az-Zubair bin 'Adi:

We went to Anas bin Malik and complained about the wrong we were suffering at the hand of Al-Hajjaj. Anas bin Malik said, "Be patient till you meet your Lord, for no time will come upon you but the time following it will be worse than it. I heard that from the Prophet."

Saheeh Bukhari

Plz. ponder on the following narration from Ibn Hibbaan in his Saheeh, # 5964: (The Book of Mortgages, Chapter: "What happens in the times of fitnah: an Explanation that in Times of Fitnah a man should hear and obey the one in charge, as long as he does not order disobedience to Allaah" on the authority of Abdullaah ibnus Saamit with an authentic chain upon the conditions of Imaam Muslim.

Aboo Dharr came from Shaam to Uthmaan and said:
quote:
"O Commander of the Believers! Open the door so that the people can enter. Do you mistaken me for the people who read the Qur'aan, and it doesn't go past their throats (meaning the khawaarij)?" I swear by the One whom my soul is in His Hands, if you ordered to sit, I would not stand, and if you ordered me to remain standing I would stand as long as my legs would allow me (to stand) and if you were to tie me to a camel, I wouldn't let myself go until you yourself would let me go!"
Then Aboo Dharr sought permission to exile to Ar-Rabdhah, so he granted it to him..."

This story was also related by Ibnu Sa'd in his book entitled At-Tabaqaatul Kubraa (4/234) and by Ibnu Shibbah in his book Akhbaarul Madeenah (2/254-255) with authentic chains with the conditions of Al-Imaam Muslim.{*}
