Shaikh Fawzaan (may Allaah preserve him) Responds to the Recent Attempted Attack against Makkah Perpetrated by the Hoothi Rawaafid Shiite –An Ally and Proxy of The Raafidah State of Iran

In The Name of Allaah, The Most Merciful, The Bestower of Mercy

Shaikh Saaleh al-Fawzaan says that we should thank Allaah (The Most High) Who repelled the (recent) plot perpetrated by the Hoothi Shiite Raafidah against the Sacred House (i.e. Masjid Al-Haraam) and we should supplicate against them, for indeed they are worthy of punishment. They are not the first people to attack the sacred house, rather the Qaraamitah and likewise Abrahah wanted to destroy the kabah, but Allaah is Ever Watchful Over Them. Allaah [The Most High] stated: [أَلَمْ تَرَ كَيْفَ فَعَلَ رَبُّكَ بِأَصْحَابِ الْفِيلِ   – Have you (O Muhammad) not seen how your Lord dealt with the Owners of the Elephant?]

This was about the king of Abyssinia who came along with a huge elephant to destroy the Ka’bah, but Allaah repelled them- Allaah sent them birds in flocks and each bird carried three stones, one in its beak and two in the legs. The birds pelted them with the stones – the stones smashed the skulls of the disbelievers and exited from their anuses, and not a single one of them survived.

Allaah said:

أَلَمۡ تَرَ كَيۡفَ فَعَلَ رَبُّكَ بِأَصۡحَـٰبِ ٱلۡفِيلِ (١) أَلَمۡ يَجۡعَلۡ كَيۡدَهُمۡ فِى تَضۡلِيلٍ۬ (٢) وَأَرۡسَلَ عَلَيۡہِمۡ طَيۡرًا أَبَابِيلَ (٣) تَرۡمِيهِم بِحِجَارَةٍ۬ مِّن سِجِّيلٍ۬ (٤) فَجَعَلَهُمۡ كَعَصۡفٍ۬ مَّأۡڪُولِۭ (٥)

Have you (O Muhammad) not seen how your Lord dealt with the Owners of the Elephant? [The elephant army which came from Yemen under the command of Abrahah Al-Ashram intending to destroy the Ka’bah at Makkah]. Did He not make their plot go astray? And sent against them birds, in flocks, Striking them with stones of Sijjil. And made them like an empty field of stalks (of which the corn has been eaten up by cattle).

This year was called the year of the elephant – the year in which the Messenger of Allah [sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam] was born.

Likewise, what did the Qaraamitah do? They killed the pilgrims at the sacred house and at Arafah. They took the black stone to another place they built and called it a Ka’bah. They placed the black stone in that building and it remained there for more than twenty years until Allaah (willed) that it was to be returned to the Kabah (at Makkkah). This act (i.e. attacking the sacred land) is an act of the Shiites and the Raafidah. These Shiites –Hoothi Shiites- are upon the way of their forefathers and Allaah is Ever Watchful Over Them.
