Those Who Defend the Khawārij | Shaykh Ṣāliḥ al Fawzān
The Questioner: This questioner asks about those people who defend this group and say in spite of these evil actions that they have they also have good deeds that must be mentioned?
Shaykh Ṣāliḥ al-Fawzān: “What are these good deeds? Destroying homes, killing, terrorism, loss of wealth and the killing of Muslims and those under the protection of the Muslim leader…these are their good deeds?! They don’t have any apparent good deeds. As for whatever is between them and Allāh, then we do not know the unseen. However, based upon what is apparent from them is that they don’t have any good deeds that are noticeable.
And the one who defends them is just like them. And the ruling for him is just like the ruling for them even if he did not go out with them and blow himself up with them. If he believes them to be upon the truth, then he is similar to them with Allāh; he is similar to them in his ruling. So the Muslim must beware of the like of this since he might actually be similar to them and not even realize it because he defends them or legitimizes their actions or makes excuses for them.”
