Official statement on the Jihad in Dammaj Yemen

For some years now we have been aware of the ongoing conflict in northern Yemen between the Houthi Shia, and the Salafi students at Shaykh Muqbil's dawah center and school in the village of Dammaj. Over the the years countless students have been killed and retaliation killings has taken place. It is with great sadness that we hear now the situation has grown out of control, with the Houthi now surrounding  the Salafi's in the village of Dammaj, and the Salafi's disparate situation of running out of food, and medical aid.

This December the leader of the Salafi's Shaykh Yahya 
al-Hajoori announced Jihad against the Shia and he received a phone call from the Muhaddith of Hijaz Arabia Shaykh Abdul Muhsin al-Abbad who agreed with his decision. The chances of all out war in north Yemen between Salalfi muslims and Shia is real and a present danger. And the even greater danger of civil war spreading into south Saudi Arabia is real a well. 

For those who may not know the school in Dammaj attracts students from all over the world, many are there from the West. myself had plans to go to Dammaj when I was still Muslim, something not out of the ordinary among western converts to Salafi Islam who wish to gain knowledge in Islamic studies. I wonder at this point how many of these converts have found themselves dead or permaniatly injured pursuing their dream of living like the Salaf. 

The blood feud between the Shia and the Sunni has been raging on now for almost 1400 years, and will probably rage on to the end of time. I earnestly pray to the God and Father of all that these Muslims find the truth that I and others have discovered in Jesus Christ. That the true God has provided a sacrifice ..there is no need to destroy yourselves in religious bloodshed to earn a spot in paradise.


  1. Bismillaahi ar-Rahmaanir ar-Rahim,

    Firstly, what I understand from your words are that your an apostate from Islam?!
    And ofcourse you are if you think that muslims are destroying themself for a place in Paradise? The reason for your apostacy is the ignorance and the lack of knowledge you have!!! As a muslim you should have known that Jihad has conditions. So if there's Jihad somewhere in the world, you from America can't go and make Jihad, just like that! The people who are doing Jihad are protecting themselfs and their families and yes THAT'S is religiously legislated! And not the suïcide bombers your referring to, we all know they're on misguidance!

    Secondly, you think that Jesus (peace be upon him) died as a sacrifice for all mankind their sins?! But the Bible states:

    "The person who sins shall die. A child shall not suffer for the iniquity of a parent, nor a parent suffer for the iniquity of a child; the righteousness of the righteous shall be his own, and the wickedness of the wicked shall be his own." (Ezechiel 18:20)

    The Qur'an states: "Allaah does not charge a soul except [with that within] its capacity. It will have [the consequence of] what [good] it has gained, and it will bear [the consequence of] what [evil] it has earned.'' (al-Baqarah:286)

    May Allaah guide you back to the truth!
