  1. salam any sayyed fadlullah followers from london?
  2. Absolutely worth to read! A new reading for the texts that handle killing the apostates Date: 03/03/2015 A.D 12/05/1436 H An interview with Sheikh Hussein Al-Kheshen Translated by Manal Samhat The brutal operations carried out by extremist Islamic groups have led to the resurfacing of the Islamic penal system, with Muslims, before others, widely criticizing these acts deemed as offending to Islam and contradicting to its spirituality. Among the said penalties included in the system is the penalty of killing the apostate, especially that many countries, such as Sudan and Mauritania, have issued this penalty lately against a number of people, including the young Mauritanian writer, Muhammad Sheikh Wild Muhammad. In the light of these events, we made an interview with His Eminence, Sheikh Hussein Al-Kheshen, in which we asked him several questions on the matter, knowing that he will soon publish a book that handles the issue of apostasy at length. Following is the text of the interview: Should the apostate be killed?! http://english.bayynat.org/Beliefs/Beliefs_KillingApostates.htm
  3. i mention the concept of the dhimmi status before, it seems to me that some ideas need a urgent reform. sayyed fadlllah had a interesting opinion about that. here a passage of what scheikh Youssef Sbeity said about this and he shares the same opinion on that like sayyed fadlullah: 1 Print out Towards a bold discussion on the historicity of the religious text and how to develop the Islamic thought Citizens, not Dhimmis The other title in the Quranic text is “the Dhimmis”. Allah says: “Fight those who do not believe in Allah, nor in the latter day, nor do they prohibit what Allah and His Messenger have prohibited, nor follow the religion of truth, out of those who have been given the Book, until they pay the tax in acknowledgment of superiority and they are in a state of subjection” (09:29). Obviously, the term “Dhimmis” is not explicitly used in this Ayah, rather it is inspired from it, for it entails imposing on the People of the Book paying the Jizyah (tax in acknowledgment of superiority), for they live under the rule of Muslims and their custody. This means, according to the modern laws of the states, that they are second-degree citizens who do not enjoy the same rights as the Muslims. This issue angers the Christians, on the one hand, who always say that they do not want to be Dhimmis, and the secularists, on the other, who object on the ground that people are not equal under the Islamic rule, for there are citizens of a first degree and others of a second degree. What is the truth behind this issue? I will not move to justify whether this issue is legitimate or not, for this is a separate matter. What I want to say is that paying this Jizyah was related to certain historic circumstances and concepts that no longer exist in our contemporary world, for the prevalent title in our present time and in the relation of the states with the people is “citizenship”. This means that the members of each state are citizens with equal rights and obligations, for each state has an army composed of all its members, regardless of their religious and confessional affiliations, with the mission of defending the land and warding off any danger that could threaten the citizens’ security and safety. So, if it was not incumbent on the People of the Book in the past times to enroll in the Muslim army or they were exempted from that, then this is not the case anymore in the present time. Nowadays, the military and security forces in all the sectors are open to every individual of the society, either as voluntary enlistment or conscription. Moreover, there are employees from all confessions in all the governmental departments and ministries, and each citizen has the right to work in these positions and to assume the position of president, or prime minister or member of parliament if he has the required competency, regardless of his religious belonging, and it is incumbent on every citizen to pay taxes to the state. Therefore, the title “Dhimmis” no longer exists, and it got replaced with “citizen” and “citizenship”. The best example to that is the Islamic Republic of Iran that treats its citizen according to the concept of citizenship and not “Dhimmi”. All its citizens have equal rights and obligations and it does not impose on any group of them paying the Jizyah. http://english.bayynat.org/temp/temp_DiscussionHistoricity.htm
