Assalammu Alaikum Brother Saif and Jazakallah Khayrun for both your 'apology' and for enlightening me on the questions I raised about the indictments against me from your earlier post and where I am justly guilty. In reply to your post, I again made general comments. As I am not aware of the events you have referred to across the Muslim World in their entirety (that is the full story from all sides), and specifically Libya and Syria, I will not make any immediate judgements until I know more about what has transpired and what is currently happening. As to Takfeer, I am not referring to any specific scholars, only what is Islamically required. May I ask did I say that Takfeer is done by the common people, I don't believe I did, only that it is not for them to do so. Having said that, I wish to add 'scholars' can be just as guilty of making takfeer incorrectly, giving wrong fatawas and declaring things to be wrong, misleading the people and representing falsehood as correct. But at the same time it does not mean the office of scholarship is at fault and should be abolished either. I spoke in general terms.
