Video description: This is the clear speech of Shaykh Ibn ‘Uthaymin (rahimahullah) concerning revolting against the rulers and it being the most corrupt, vile innovation.
How true are the words of the great Imam Al-Hasan Al-Basri (Allah have mercy on him) who said:
“If people called on Allah when put to trial because of their rulers, Allah would relieve their suffering; but instead they resorted to the sword, so they were left to it. And not one day of good did they bring.”
Then he recited (Qur’an 7:137):
“And the good word of your Lord was fulfilled for the Children of Israel, for the patience and perseverance they had, and We destroyed the works of Pharoah and his people and what they had erected.”
[Ibn Abi Hatim, Al-Tafsir, no. 8897]
