Fatwa of Sheikh Abu Baseer at-Tartousi on jihad in the Caucasus and the Emir of the Caucasus Emirate Dokku Abu Usman

Publication time: Today at 12:49 Emirate time
Editorial staff of IslamUmma website reports it contacted with the Sheikh Abu Baseer at-Tartousi, and asked questions about the situation of the Mujahideen in the Caucasus, and the Emir of the Caucasus Emirate, Dokku Abu Usman.
In response, Sheikh Abu Baseer in conversation explained his position on the Caucasus Emirate, and the Mujahideen Emir Dokku Umarov. He sent Salam to the Mujahedeen of Caucasus, and also said that "he loves Mujahideen of the Caucasus, and that he appreciates the Emir Dokku Umarov, that this man is a great Mujahid, and that he supports the Mujahideen in the Caucasus, and he is with them".
Also, Sheikh Abu Baseer at-Tartousi, having learnt about the martyrdom of Supreme Judge of the Caucasus Emirate and the Emir of Dagestan Seyfullah of Gubden, sent his condolences, saying that grieves with all of us about our brother, and those who were with him ...
And then he made du'a, or prayer, for the Mujahideen in Palestine, in Iraq, in the Caucasus and throughout the world ...
Sheikh Also issued the fatwa in written form, and said that if something is needed now there is a way to get in touch with him.
And this fatwa is as follows:
Q: What is needed and what is recommended for leadership of Mujahideen during this period, which the Jihad in the Caucasus run into?
Answer: Praise be to Allah, the Lord of the Worlds. Mujahideen under leadership of Dokku Umarov are, according to Sharia, legitimate rulers of their countries and their people, and people have an obligation to get into their submission and to ally with them. And as for Emirs, or rulers, of Jihad, then they in turn should look at the use of slaves of Allah and care about their people, and try to be the most merciful and close to the people, and be very careful about what is good for them, and that they should be ahead in all of their enemy and its employees (from local hypocrites).
And every time the people gets closer to the Mujahedeen, it will aggravate the situation and the actions of the enemies.
And if people move away from the Mujahideen, then people will help the enemies, surrender to the enemy and expose the Mujahideen, behind their backs. And thus it will be a relief for the enemy to destroy the Mujahideen, with their modern weapons, in which they have now succeeded.
There are different types of battle, of which it is a clear (muhkam), about which there is agreement by all, and vague (mutashabih). And whenever a battle closes to a clear action, then it will be a great blessing and acceptance (approval), both on the earth and in the heaven.
Any action in the jihad is caused by two criteria before they perform.
The first of them: Its relevance to Sharia.
Second: Evaluation from the benefits that it would lead - whether it is more than harm, or vice versa? And then, basing on it, to decide.
And in general we have a book on this occasion entitled "Jihad and Sharia Politics", and we suggest you to go back to it, and given the fact that it contains a number of directives on this subject, there is not necessary now to go back to this topic, and here is a link to this book in arabic "Jihad and Sharia Politics".
