The Saud Family Follow the Creed of the Liar Abou Hurayrah

Was published in Arabic in October1, 2015

Translated by Ahmed Fathy

 

He said to me: It is said in the news that the Saudi Deputy Minister of Health announced on 29-9-2015 that a photo album of the 4173 pilgrims killed in the stampede has been created.

I said to him: What is new in this piece of news?

He said: They are lying. They said before that the pilgrims killed in the stampede are 715 only.

I said: Nothing new under the sun, my friend. The Wahabi creed is based on lies. The Wahabis attribute their lies and falsehoods like hadiths, fiqh, and legislations to God the Almighty. Why it should not be easier to lie to human beings worldwide. Is it not enough that they worship and venerate the biggest liar in the volumes and tomes of tradition: Abou Hurayrah?

He said: Yet, in their political lies they reach a very ridiculous level; the Saudi Foreign Minister said in an interview with the TV channel "Al-Hurra" that his country hopes to find a civil democratic state established soon in Syria. Is the KSA itself a civil democratic state?!

I said: No country can ever reach the KSA level in tyranny, corruption, and enslavement of people. Is it not enough that the Saudi royal family made its family name the name of the kingdom? This royal family considers all citizens (who used to be free) as personal property of his family; the citizens are now called Saudis! Those Saudis when talking about a cavil democratic state in Syria remind us of the chiefs of misguidance in every time and clime mentioned in the Quran: "Do you command people to virtuous conduct, and forget yourselves, even though you read the Scripture? Do you not understand?" (2:44). Instead of meddling in Syrian affairs, the Saudis should have better set free all the imprisoned people whose incarceration is due to free expression of their opinions. They should have better ban the Committee for the Promotion of Virtue and the Prevention of Vice that perform the roles of policemen, judges, legislators, and executioner combined. Such a committee fabricates the accusation, arrests the innocent, judges them in courts, then imprisons, tortures, or kill them. There is no sort of injustice worldwide that might be equal to the enormity of injustice in the KSA. This is to say nothing of coercion in religion. This is the worst type of persecution: it is the one major sign of denying God, polytheism, and unbelief. The Saudi regime reached the worst level in the quagmire called coercion in religion; it kills people because of that. They kill people for reasons related to Wahabism, not Islam, concerning accusations of witchcraft, for example. They apply the notion of stoning people to death, never ordered by God in the Quran. All the Saudi unjust laws are applied only to the ordinary weak citizens who are considered to be owned by the royal family. No punishment or law applies to any royal family members or those serving them. There is a flagrant contradiction between this state of affairs in the KSA and real Islam found only in the Quran. This contradiction extends to their claims of hoping for a civil democratic state in Syria. If these hopes were true, why the Saudis helped establish ISIS terrorist group and other groups to destroy Syria? No one can deny that the Syrian president, Bashar Al-Assad, is a tyrant and a killer. Yet, they urged him to destroy the peaceful opposition movements that called for human rights and a civil democracy in Syria. In the same vein, the KSA royal family annihilated anyone who dared to call for a constitutional monarchy in the KSA. Those peaceful political reformers did not call for the abolishment of monarchy; they demanded a democratic margin. This is the reason they now wither away in prisons.

He said: Why, in your opinion, they interfere in Syria?   

I said: For the same reasons that made them interfere in Yemen.

He said: Could you please explain these reasons in detail?

I said: The Saudi royal family does not desire the existence of any strong state among their neighboring states or at their borders. They insist on destroying these states as their most important goal, especially if that state holds strong relations with Iran. The KSA considers the Syrian president as an enemy because he is a Shiite making alliances with Iran. The KSA launched military actions in Yemen because the Houthis are Shiite linked closely to Iran.

He said: These are political reasons, then. Is that wrong?

I said: Policies are unethical when they lead to injustice, killings, and destructions of countries, peoples, and nations. This exasperates when policies are attributed to creeds by a theocratic kingdom that claim itself as leaders of Muslims worldwide.

He said: But the Saudi royal family claim to be believers who follow the steps of the good ancestors, the so-called companions of Prophet Muhammad, right?

I said: God says in the Quran to those ancestors and to all who announce themselves to be believers: "O you who believe! Why do you say what you do not do? It is most hateful to God that you say what you do not do. "(61:2-3). The KSA royal family repeats in their statements the name of God and talks sometimes about the clemency of Islam; yet they say what they do not. This hateful crime instigates the wrath of God.

He said: But the founder of the KSA, Abdul-Aziz Al-Saud, used to allow people to criticize him, right?

I said: That time was when he has recently established the monarchy and his soldiers the ''brothers'' who fought for his sake used to criticize and oppose him sometimes. This oral opposition ripened into political opposition in forums and conferences that eventually led to military opposition. Abdul-Aziz defeated them and ruled alone with tyranny since 1930. He later on announced that the country was to change its official name to the name of his family: the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. He made an oral, unwritten law that asserts that the elders know best in any family. Hence, the Saudi king knows best and can never be contradicted. This notion became essential in the Wahabi creed; no one would dare to give advice to the king in public; rather, this is to be done secretly via mediators within the royal family members, servants, government officials, or Wahabi clergy.

He said: This is a peculiar regime!

I said: God says in the Quran: "Among the people is he whose speech about the worldly life impresses you, and he calls God to witness what is in his heart, while he is the most hostile of adversaries. When he gains power, he strives to spread corruption on earth, destroying properties and lives. God does not like corruption. And when he is told, "Beware of God," his pride leads him to more sin. Hell is enough for him - a dreadful abode. "(2:204-206). Imagine that someone tells a Saudi prince who is immersed in drinking wine, gambling, and copulating female slaves and male adolescents to beware of God…

He said: His pride will certainly lead him to more sin…

I said:  Hell is enough for him - a dreadful abode. God says nothing but the Truth.

He said: But the KSA has established countless mosques and Islamic centers worldwide. They managed to expel Jewish scholars and teachers from all branches of Islamic studies in all European and American universities. They did that by huge amounts of money donated to these universities.

I said: They do that to spread Wahabism worldwide as Islam, though it contradicts Islam as seen in the Quran. Another reason for that is to prevent any criticism against Wahabism in the West. They have succeeded in that at least so far, until the present moment.

He said: They donate for the sake of social solidarity to the needy as well in several places.

I said: In proportion of their income, the KSA royal family members give very little, not to be compared with donations of the Protestant churches and the Roman Catholic Church given to the needy Muslims and Arabs. The KSA royal family donates very little and follows their grants with huge propaganda and harmful acts. Even inside the KSA, when bonus money on certain occasions is distributed to civil governmental employees, they call it 'Royal Honor'. Their donations to other countries are far less than what they spent on private parties, belly-dancers, prostitutes, gambling, and traveling worldwide. Do not forget that they forget all Muslim victims of famines everywhere. It is ridiculous and sorrowful that they donate money to Wahabi terrorist movements in Somalia to buy arms, while famines spread in Somalia and no one do anything to stop and alleviate these famines. Hundreds of thousands of Syrian families have become homeless refugees scattered in several countries. They are aided only by Christian aid organizations. They KSA did nothing at all to aid, help, or alleviate the conditions of Syrian refugees, let alone hosting them.

He said: But at least they have donated a little to the needy. Do not deny this!

I said: I do not deny those who draw benefits despite the KSA royal family. When the KSA have spent more than one thousand billion of dollars to spread Wahabism worldwide within 50 years, millions of people benefitted from that money indirectly or directly. For instance, when the Mubarak regime fell in Egypt in 2011, hundreds of millions of dollars came to Egypt as donations from the KSA and other Gulf monarchies to Salafi/Wahabi centers and groups in Egypt away from the Egyptian government and corrupt officials who smuggle the stolen millions abroad. Those Salafi/Wahabi Egyptians become filthily rich instantly. Wahabism, which has been rechristened in Egypt many years ago as Salafism, spread on both horizontal and vertical levels in Egypt. Salafists have spent this ill-gotten money in Egyptian markets and owned buildings.

He said: Is that positive?

I said: Economically. But in terms of God's rewards in the afterlife, they will receive nothing.

He said: Why?             

I said: God never accepts charity whose source is ill-gotten money. God says in the Quran: "O you who believe! Give of the good things you have earned, and from what We have produced for you from the earth. And do not pick the inferior things to give away, when you yourselves would not accept it except with eyes closed. And know that God is Sufficient and Praiseworthy."(2:267).

He said: Why do you suppose the KSA money is ill-gotten?

I said: Any tyrant ruler's money is ill-gotten. The KSA royal family members claim they own the land and its inhabitants. This is enormous injustice. Oil in the Eastern region in the KSA is owned by its Shiite inhabitants, but the KSA royal family stole and confiscated their oil after occupying their land, and Shiite Saudis are being persecuted and deprived of human rights. We see now how the Saudi royal family spends oil money in excesses, material comfort of every sort, sexual relations, and weapons deals with huge prices and commissions as well as aggressive wars. Any opposition is faced with killing or imprisonment. The KSA royal family money is ill-gotten because it is stolen from its rightful owners. God never accepts charity from ill-gotten money.

He said: Some countries claimed that Mecca should be supervised by an international body in the time of pilgrimage, and then the KSA royal family has insisted that it reserves the right to supervise pilgrimage alone. What is your opinion about that?       

I said: God says in the Quran that this House is made for mankind, even before the establishment of the KSA:"The first house established for mankind is the one at Bekka; blessed, and guidance for all people." (3:96). The Saudi family did not exist when the Kaabah was built. "We showed Abraham the location of the House: "Do not associate anything with Me; and purify My House for those who circle around, and those who stand to pray, and those who kneel and prostrate." And announce the pilgrimage to humanity. They will come to you on foot, and on every transport. They will come from every distant point."(22:26-27).

He said: But they control Mecca now.

I said: This unjust control makes them control pilgrims and stop whoever they like from coming to Mecca. God will punish them for this sacrilege. This punishment applies to anyone anytime who does that, and this applies to the KSA royal family: "As for those who disbelieve and repel from God's path and from the Sacred Mosque-which We have designated for all mankind equally, whether residing therein or passing through-and seek to commit sacrilege therein-We will make him taste of a painful punishment."(22:25).

He said: But they claim that the right to control Mecca is theirs only.

I said: This is the logic of bullying and unjust power. This applied to the unbelievers of the Qorayish tribe in the times of Prophet Muhammad; they claimed to be owners of Mecca and the Kaabah. Are Al-Saud family members pious enough? "Yet why should God not punish them, when they are turning others away from the Sacred Mosque, although they are not its custodians? Its rightful custodians are the pious; but most of them do not know."(8:34)

He said: If they are not pious in your opinion, what is the Quranic description that fits their demeanor?

I said: "A declaration of immunity from God and His Messenger to the polytheists with whom you had made a treaty. So travel the land for four months, and know that you cannot escape God, and that God will disgrace the disbelievers.And a proclamation from God and His Messenger to the people on the day of the Greater Pilgrimage, that God has disowned the polytheists, and so did His Messenger. If you repent, it will be better for you. But if you turn away, know that you cannot escape God. And announce to those who disbelieve a painful punishment.Except for those among the polytheists with whom you had made a treaty, and did not violate any of its terms, nor aided anyone against you. So fulfill the treaty with them to the end of its term. God loves the righteous.When the Sacred Months have passed, kill the polytheists wherever you find them. And capture them, and besiege them, and lie in wait for them at every ambush. But if they repent, and perform the prayers, and pay the alms, then let them go their way. God is Most Forgiving, Most Merciful."(9:1-5). What do you understand from these verses?

He said: Some of the unbelievers breeched the treaty and committed sacrilege in Mecca and prevented the faithful from entering Mecca in the time of pilgrimage (the four lunar Hijri months of Zu-Al-Hijja, Muharram, Saffar, and Rabei Awwal). By the end of this pilgrimage season of four months, believers are ordered to fight back unbelievers who violate their treaty and commit aggressions against them. They were ordered to fight until unbelievers stop aggression and return to peace.

I said: This is the real duty of any Islamic country which is peaceful. It fights only when enemies trespasses on its land. The KSA should open Mecca for all people in all times even non-Muslims as long as they are peaceful people. Another duty is stop aggressors from coming to Mecca. "O you who believe! The polytheists are polluted, so let them not approach the Sacred Mosque after this year of theirs. And if you fear poverty, God will enrich you from His grace, if He wills. God is Aware and Wise."(9:28). Aggressors who do mischief in Mecca are called ''polluted''.

He said: Do you mean to tell me that the Saudi royal family members are polluted?

I said: This is my testimony based on their well-known aggression and crimes.

He said: This is a harsh testimony!

I said: I bear its responsibility before the Almighty in the Day of Judgment!
