‘Abd al-‘Azīz Ar-Rājihī on Political Demonstrations
Question: What is your opinion of those who say political demonstrations are allowable in order to pressure the leaders or governments?
Answer: These demonstrations are not from the actions of Muslims. They are foreign (to Islam) and were never known except by way of the western countries of disbelief.
 ‘Abd al-‘Azīz Ar-Rājihī: One of the leading scholars and instructors of Saudi Arabia today.
 This fatwā was taken from a book called “al-Fatāwā al-Shar’iyyah fī al-Qadhāyā Al-‘Asriyyah,” a
collection of various rulings by Muhammad Ibn Fahd al-Ḥusayn.
 Taken from the magazine: Safīnah al-Najāḥ (no. 2, Janurary 1997).
“Make things easy and do not make things difficult. Give glad tidings and do not repel people..”
