Condemning the Destruction of Imam An-Nawawi's Grave

A translation from Imam Muhammad Saeed Ramadan al-Bouti's official Facebook page

ضريح الامام النووي رضي الله عنه

Today [Wednesday, January 8, 2015], the criminals and tools of tribulation who have raged through several Arab and Islamic countries added to their archive of filthy crimes…the dogs of the Fire,[1] as the Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, called them.

Today, they destroyed the grave of our master, Imam an-Nawawī, may Allah be pleased with him, who is considered one of the greatest scholars of Islam. We can’t find any justification for this disgusting act that these self-described revolutionaries have committed…other than their deep hatred of Allah, Mighty and Majestic, and of every symbol of the Islamic religion.

We ask Allah by the esteemed rank that our master, Imam an-Nawawī, has with Him, and out of His vigilant care for His friends, to avenge him and everyone else whom He loves and to make this crime the last of their crimes and corruption on earth, and to make it the cause of their destruction and the destruction of those who support them and send them to the Levant. O Allah, count them one by one and destroy them one by one, and don’t let any of them remain!

And we ask all those who love Imam an-Nawawī to say ‘Amīn!’

[1] (tn): i.e. the Khawārij

جريمة جديدة ارتكبها اليوم مجرمو وأدوات الفتن التي تعصف بالكثير من البلاد العربية والإسلامية وأضافوها إلى أرشيف جرائمهم القذرة .. كلاب النار كما سماهم رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم.

إذ قاموا اليوم بتدمير قبر سيدنا الإمام النووي رضي الله عنه .. الذي يعد واحداً من أكابر علماء الإسلام.

ولم نجد مبرراً لهذا العمل الهمجي القذر الذي ارتكبه العملاء الذين يسمون أنفسهم ثواراً .. سوى حقدهم على الله جل جلاله وعلى كل علم ورمز من رموز الدين الإسلامي.
ونسأل الله تعالى بحرمة سيدنا الإمام النووي عنده وبغيرته على أولياءه .. أن ينتقم له ولسائر أحبابه، وأن يجعل هذه الجريمة خاتمة جرائمهم وإفسادهم في الأرض، وأن يجعلها سبب هلاكهم وهلاك من يساندهم ومن يصدرهم إلى الشام. 
اللهم أحصهم عدداً .. وأهلكهم بدداً ولا تبقي منهم أحداً 

وأرجو من كل محب للإمام النووي أن يؤمن على الدعاء ..

On Mockery

A partial translation of this article

Imam ash-Shaʿrāwī, may Allah have mercy on him, was asked for his opinion regarding a book that one of the mockers of Islam had written and that had generated a lot of discussion in the 1990s.

He replied, ‘I haven’t read it and I will never read it.’ They then said, ‘How, when there has been so much discussion about it?’ Imam ash-Shaʿrāwī, may Allah have mercy on him, then recited the words of Allah the Exalted in Sūrat an-Nisāʾ:

{It has been sent down to you in the Book that when you hear Allah’s signs being rejected and mocked at by the people, you must not sit with them until they start talking about other things. If you do, you are just the same as them. Allah will gather all the hypocrites and disbelievers into Hell.} [4:140]

The disbelievers from amongst the Quraysh used to recite poems and songs that criticised the Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, as well as the noble Companions, but these poems and songs haven’t reached us because the Muslims didn’t relate them and spread them, nor did they pay them any attention, and thus they fell into oblivion and were forgotten. Therefore, we must disregard and ignore anything that insults the Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, or Islam, so that we don’t contribute to its spread.

And implement the sincere advice of ʿUmar, may Allah be pleased with him: ‘Put falsehood to death by being quiet about it, and do not chatter about it lest the malicious come to know of it.’

And may Allah’s blessings and peace be upon His Messenger.
