The Committee of Senior Scholars support to those whom has stolen the people’s money and dignity

Peace, God’s mercy and blessings be upon you. We thank God that there is no god but Him,- and peace be upon  the Prophet Muhammad who was sent to accomplish morals and did not differentiate between people and made justice, and peace be upon his companions and those who followed them in any time and any place.

This research includes passages about the importance of renewing the Saudi religious discourse to be a speech that embraces justice rule or constitutionality . When I started thinking about the topic , I found that the beginning of this episode entitled ” the support of the committee of senior scholars to those whom has stolen people’s money and  dignity”, and their freedom as well,  I realized that this episode should be followed by another episode about the role of the senior scholars in breaking up the concepts of citizenship,  pluralism and  tolerance, and the committee’s  role in the production of violence and extremism , and then another episode will be about the corruption approach inferred when the senior scholars interpret Quran verses and sayings with deceitful explanations , and take what they want.

What is a civil society?

Idiomatic Meaning

There are three meanings integrated in the word “civil”:

  1. To  be designated in the political and social culture by the basis of the state such as human rights which are innately known and confirmed by the laws as the human right for food, housing, education … and freedom and dignity.
  2. The relationship between the ruler and the nation is a contract and a compromise, whereupon the state saves people’s freedom and rights, in equality, justice and dignity, and the people obey on this basis. In this sense, the civil society is not against the state but against the singling of the state and civil society decision appears through associations which reflect the opinion of civil society. Thus, the state do not settle the interests of  people, but people are the ones who decide what their interests are .
  3. That the guarantor against the community assassination and the guarantor of the state long life is to enable the civil society gatherings and relatively-independent  civil  association within the state.

At dismantling  the idiom (civil society groups) we find that it combines Continue reading

How Does the State Ensure Justice?

Why did the Prophet Mohammad (peace be upon him) change Yathrib name to Al-Madina, and forbid his companions to call it Yathrib again?

It was the symbolic function of civilian life creed, and the launch of an Islamic civil society in which people migrate from brutal desert life to a high civil life.

Our ancestors should grasp that the reason for the fall of the caliphate is the fragility of civil society groupings.

Civil society is the key to the advancement and stability, our ancestors broke that key and lost it, the most ignorant people of such concepts are the so-called educated religious .

The Arab Gulf and Peninsula Countries’ Hereditary Pressure to Explode

Al Salam Alikum: I thank Allah who administers justice and says their matters are shorA between them; and I pray to the messenger of Allah, who rules with shura and says that rulers should rule with Allah’s commands and rules; and I pray to his companions, who praised the shori ruling, and to their followers in every place and time.

This lecture is about the relationship between pressure and explosion as it pertains to the hereditary repression in the countries of the Arabian Peninsula and Gulf, meaning they are at a crossroads and can go one of two ways: either rising in a way that entwines the pledge of allegiance and the reigning of the nation, or exploding and collapsing. The hereditary repression in the countries of the Arab Peninsula and Gulf is a unique phenomenon in modern times that doesn’t have any equivalent throughout human history, and can’t continue in the modern times. It’s brain-dead, and its fate is to collapse and explode, even before the Arab wind blows, because it’s the biggest factory for pressure and tension in modern times for the following reasons: Continue reading

Come to the Peaceful Jihad instead of Militant

Jihad has been associated in our Arabic and Islamic culture with carrying a weapon and associated, too, with defending against outside invaders…and Arabs have paid attention to the issue of peaceful change as more than one hundred countries over the past fifty years moved from dictatorship to democratic rule through peaceful methods… In this country our desert culture still exists and faith in the sword as a remedy for things still exists…and because of that those who advocated for peaceful reform after the Gulf War were dealt a fatal blow by the country, and people split into three categories: Continue reading
