# Fatwa on those that defend Taghoot

Fatwa on those that defend Taghoot by their words

((Regarding Noble Sheikh Ali bin Khudayr Al Khudayr. Some reports shows that he is killed in Jail by Saudi Ibleesi regime. ALLAH knows the best. - abu muQatil))

The Verdict Regarding the One Who Defensively Argues on Behalf of the Tāghūt
By the imprisoned Shaykh, the Mujāhid Shaykh ‘Alī ibn Khudhayr Al-Khudhayr
May Allāh hasten his release from the prisons of the Tāwaghit) from at-Tibyān Publications


“There is a certain individual who defends (in arguments) the Tawāghīt day and night, and the Hujjah (evidence) has been established upon him dozens of times – yet he makes excuses for the actions of the Tawāghīt. So what is the ruling regarding such an individual ?”

Shaykh ‘Alī Al-Khudhayr (may Allāh hasten his release) answered:

If these Tawāghīt are kuffār (in his eyes, meaning) that their kufr has been established – and he views them as kuffār – and then yet he defends them: Then he is a kāfir just like them. As Allāh (Most High) has said:

“And those who disbelieve are allies to one another…” [Al-Anfāl: 73]
And because his action of defending them, is Tawallī (alliance) with them. And Allāh has said:

“And thus We do make the Thālimīn (polytheists and wrong­doers) Awliyā’ (supporters and helpers) one to another, because of that which they used to earn.” [Al-An’ām: 129]

And He (Most High) has also said:

“Verily, the Thālimīn (polytheists and wrong­doers) Awliyā’ (supporters and helpers) one to another, but Allāh is the Walī (Helper, Protector) of the Muttaqīn.” [Al-Jāthiyah: 19]

But on the other hand: If he thinks that the rulers are upon Islām, or reality of their situation is in doubt – Then as long as you continue to give him your sincere advice and admonishment, then you have fulfilled your obligations.

But, if he thinks they are not upon kufr, but he is aware of their oppression and betrayal, and yet argues in their defense – then for him is the Statement of Allāh (Most High):

“And argue not on behalf of those who deceive themselves.” [An-Nisā’: 107]


“So be not a pleader for the treacherous.” [An-Nisā’: 105]


“My Lord! For that with which You have favored me, I will never more be a helper for the Mujrimūn (criminals,polytheists, sinners, etc.)!” [Al-Qasas: 17]
