Whoever Supports Or Defends Terrorists Is an Accomplice in Their Crime Even If He Carried No Weapon!

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

Shaikh Saaleh Al-Fawzaan [may Allaah preserve him] said:

Do not side with the people of Fitna, support, assist or defend them- because [that would necessitate] that you have shared in their [actions] if you defend them and consider their views to be correct, even if you did not come out alongside them [physically], then you have [still] shared in their sin, rebellion and transgression. Nowadays there are those who side with the people of Tafjeer and Takhreeb [i.e. those terrorists who detonate bombs to kill innocent civilians and cause destruction] and they call this jihaad in the path of Allah.  [Ref 1] They kill Muslims and the Mu’aahideen [i.e. those non-Muslims whose safety is guaranteed by way of a covenant] [Ref 2]. They cause destruction and terrify the Muslims, and they say, or those who support them say, ‘’This is jihaad in the path of Allah’’ and they defend them. These people [i.e. those who support the terrorists] are judged the same as the terrorists and Allaah’s refuge is sought- because they aid them and consider their views to be correct. There is great danger in this affair, because you [i.e. the one who supports terrorists] are considered as one who shares [their sins] even if you did not carry a weapon alongside them- due to the reason that you aid them and consider their views to be correct; rather what is even more serious is that you describe their actions as [acts of] Jihaad in the path of Allaah. [Ref 3]
