Benefit: Where Did the Term “Jāmiyyah” Come From?
In the Name of Allāh, the Ever Merciful, the Bestower of Mercy
This name [Jāmiyyah or Jamīs] first appeared during the invasion of Ṣaddam Hussein in Kuwait and the other nearby nations. Thus, the scholars disapproved of this transgression and due to this a number of people who were supporting Ṣaddam from the Ikhwanīs and Ḥizbīs stopped. Furthermore, Shaykh Muḥammad Amān al-Jāmī was among those who took it upon himself to refute these transgressions.
Shaykh Ṣāliḥ ibn Fawzān al-Fawzān
