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.

He is a graduate of the Islaamic University of Madeenah, having graduated from the Institute of Arabic Language, and later the Faculty of Sharee'ah in 2004. He currently resides in Birmingham, UK.
