Question: How should a Muslim relate to the network organisation al-Qâ’idah and its methodology?
Shaykh al-Luhaydân: Which al-Qâ’idah is he asking about?
Questioner: The network organisation al-Qâ’idah that is led by Usâmah bin Lâdin.
al-Luhaydân: There are no doubts about the fact that there is nothing good in this network organisation. It is not led for the sake of goodness and success. It splits the Muslims. Dissident and warring groups belong to the reasons behind tribulations and evil and they are the reason behind splitting and [the bolstering of] courage for carnage.
This network organisation, Is it created in order to fight against the disbelievers and driving them out of the Islâmic countries and turn to countries that fall under non-Islâmic countries in order to spread the religion in them? Or is this al-Qâ’idah calling the masses to rebellion against their rulers so that blood is spilled, rights abused, buildings destroyed and fear is spread? We ask Allâh that he guides everyone.
