Shaykh ʿUbayd al-Jābirī was asked:

What is your view regarding the demonstrations being staged on Friday in Egypt – under the banner of requesting implementation of the Sharīʿah – which the claimants to Salafiyyah are calling to.

He answered:

The throats have become hoarse, the vocal chords have broken, the newspapers have been filled and there has been spread what has been spread through the Salafī websites such as Mirāath al-Anbiyāʾ, Saḥāb and the forums of al-Waḥyayn and al-Bayḍāʾ with respect to this matter and its reality has been explained. However, the obstinacy in this matter returns to one of two affairs:

The first affair: Ignorance of the Sunnah. We do not demonstrate against the ruler whether he implements judging by the Sunnah or does not judge to the Sunnah, [whether] he implements judging to the [Islāmic] legislation or does not judge to the legislation. This is between him and his Lord, if we are able to advise him and explain the truth to him and the danger of that [action] upon him we will do so, otherwise we will abandon it. The second: The one who ascribes to knowledge of the legislation yet he does not have of knowledge except some shreds submerged by ideology (fikr) and rationality (ʿaqlāniyyah), it is from here that this issue has been made worse (intensified) in Egypt and others places.

The Salafī never does this at all. Yes, when Salafiyyah is a daʿwah that is not founded upon knowledge, but a person claims he is upon Salafiyyah whilst being with the Rationalists, the people of ideological thought and others from the dregs of humanity, those who anoint themselves with legislative kowledge founded upon the Book, the Sunnah and the way of the Righteous Salaf whilst this knowledge is free of them as the wolf was free of the blood of Yūsūf, may Allāh make good mention of him and grant him safety and peace.

السؤال : يقولُ السائل: ما رأيكم في المظاهرات التي تقوم اليوم الجمعة في مصر تحت شعار المطالبة بتطبيق الشريعة ويدعو إليها مُدَّعي السَّلفية في مصر؟ الجواب : بُحَّت الحُلوق وتقطَّعت الحناجِر ومُلئت الصّحف ونُشر ما نُشر في الشَّبكات السلفية مثل موقع ميراث الأنبياء وسحاب ومنتدى الوحيين والبيضاء في هٰذا المعنىٰ وبُيَّن حقيقته، لكن استعصاء هذا الأمر مَردُّه إِلَىٰ واحد من أمرين: الأمرُ الأوَّل : الجهل بالسُّنة؛ فنحن لا نتظاهر ضد الحاكم حَكَّم السُّنة أو ما حَكَّم السُّنة، حَكَّم الشَّرع؛ ما حَكَّم الشَّرع هٰذا بينه وبين رَبَّه، إِن استطعنا مناصحته وبيان الحق له وخطر ذٰلك عليه فعلنا وإِلَّا تركناه. الثاني : من ينتسب إِلَىٰ علم الشَّرع وما عنده من العلم إِلَّا نُتَف يسيره مغمور بالفِكر والعقلانية، هُنا استَحْكَمَت هٰذه المسألة في مصر وفي غيرها. فالسَّلفي لا يصنع هٰذا أبدًا، نعم إذا كانت السَّلفية دعوة ليست مبنية علىٰ العلم؛ بل يظنُّ أَنَّه علىٰ السَّلفية وهو مع العقلانيين وأهل الفكر وغيرهم مِن حُثالات البشر الذينَ يتمسَّحونَ بالعلمِ الشَّرعي المبني علىٰ الكتابِ والسُّنة وسيرة السلف الصالح، وهٰذا العلم برئٌ منهم براءة الذئبِ من دم يوسف - صَلَّىٰ اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ -. نعم
