Question: There are those who incite the youths and say that our brothers are dying everywhere. They call in the name of Jihâd and that one shouldn’t obey the ruler in this (I.e. in Jihâd). Can you say something regarding this matter?

Shaykh al-Fawzân: Shall we then also kill our own children, tear our homes apart and kill the Muslims if our brothers die everywhere? They rejoice in this. They rejoice in getting our brothers into these countries. They rejoice over these homicide-attacks in our countries. Is this Jihâd? Does this affect our enemies? It only affects us. It only affects the Muslims.
