Benefit: Inciting Muslim Youth Towards Jiḥād and Financing Them Without the Permission of the Leaders
In the Name of Allāh, the Ever Merciful, the Bestower of Mercy
Is it permissible to notify the appropriate authorities upon individuals who we know are inciting the youth to go and (fight) Jiḥād and providing them with the funds without the permission of the leaders; and what is your advice to these kinds of people?
Firstly, they should be advised. If they accept this advice and cease these activities then all praise is due to Allāh. If they do not accept this (advice) then in order to prevent them from harming the Muslims and the Muslim children, those in charge should be informed (of their behaviour) so that they can seize them. This person sends the Muslim children to battlegrounds and to destruction for no purposeful reason and he sits here. It is amazing that some of them deliver sermons where they get over emotional, and they encourage and send the Muslim children whilst they themselves sit in their houses, eating and drinking. All of this is unacceptable and rejected but this is just an example of their astonishing inconsistency.1
