    Allah Akbar!!!!
    I didn’t have to hear that it is haram to raise against the ruler to matter what kind of oppression they are enduring….look like the events around the Muslim world push some of the Shk. to change their discourses elhamdoulleh … some common sense finally!
    Allahuma ansur el muslimeen fi kouli makan! Ameen.
