Shaykh Muhammad al-Yaqoubi denounces the Syrian authority for banning the great erudite scholar, Shaykh Krayyim Rajih, Shaykh Al-Qurraa’ from Friday speaking. He confirms that the Shaykh, may Allah preserve him, is not only an authority for the Syrians, but for all Muslims in the Islamic World.
We, and all scholars and Muslims, support him in all the truth and the advice he pronounced and gave. We warn the Syrian authority of exerting any more pressure on the clerics. It is actually this type of pressure that lead the country to this state. So, let the Ulema speak up; there is no good in a scholar who does not speak up the truth. May Allah preserve Shaykh Krayyim Rajih and extend his life (he is 87 years old and the highest authority on the various readings of the Holy Qur’an).
