Questioner: There are some people who argue that he cannot reach the Ruler in order to advise him directly; as such there are no [other] means for him [to do so] other than [from] the pulpit.
Shaykh: No! No! The pulpit…no, and a thousand [times] no!
If you are unable to reach him, nor write to him, then you are excused O my brother.
Remain quiet until you are able and get the chance [to advise him directly].
As for [advising him from] the pulpit, no; this is not permissible.
