The Khawārij Ideology -Sheikh Saleh Al Fawzan -Hafizahullah

The Khawārij Ideology

Original Title: الفتاوى الشرعية في القضايا العصرية

Author: ālial-Fawzān


Question: Are there present today those who have the same ideologies of the Khawārij?

Answer: All of this that is prevalent today – is it not from the actions of the Khawārij

Making Takfīr of Muslims and even worse – killing fellow Muslims and hating them? This

is the exact methodology of the Khawārij. It includes three things:

1. Making Takfīr of other Muslims.

2. Renouncing obedience to the leader or government.

3. Declaring the blood of other Muslims lawful to spill.

This is precisely the methodology of the Khawārij. Even if a person were only to believe

any of these things with his heart, yet he may not actually speak or do anything of them,

he is still one of the Khawārij in his baseless belief and opinions.


1 This Fatwá was taken from a book called “al-Fatāwá al-Shar’iyyah fī al-Qadhāyā al-‘Asriyyah,” a

collection of various rulings by Muammad Ibn Fahd al-uayn.

2 Takfīr: The indiscriminate declaring of people to be disbelievers regardless if they declare belief

or not. [T.N.]

3 Taken from the cassette: Fatāwá al-‘Ulamā’
