The testimony of “Jacob” and incitement against Islamic associations.. Steps on ways to nationalize Islamic discourse

The head of the coup, Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi, seeks, through the so-called renewal of religious discourse, to empty Islam of its meanings and values, which the Sheikh of Al-Azhar, Dr. Ahmed El-Tayeb, countered in some situations, as he rejected El-Sisi’s position on verbal divorce and rejected El-Sisi’s desire to expiate the Muslim Brotherhood, which was the one who was He rejected the idea of ​​ISIS, stressing that this represents a form of slippage and fall, because Al-Azhar’s blasphemy for them gives them the same right to expiate the violator, and therefore this would represent a failure for Al-Azhar to not fall into it.

Al-Sisi’s war on Islam began with the horrific massacres of thousands of Muslims opposed to his bloody coup, then stormed mosques, killed worshipers, and demonized the broad Islamic movement, represented by the Muslim Brotherhood, the largest Islamic movement in the world, then turned to the nationalization of religious discourse and absolute domination of mosques and pulpits, and under the pretext of war on Terrorism: A mosque was bombed in one of the Egyptian army’s training exercises in a position of great shame and disgrace, and it will continue to pursue Sisi, his regime and his generals forever.

After the testimony of Sheikh Muhammad Hussein Yaqoub before the court, Al-Sisi and his regime aim to distort the remaining Salafis, even those who supported the coup such as the Nour Party or were silent about it, such as Sheikhs Muhammad Hussein Yaqoub and Muhammad Hassan.

Desire to annihilate the Islamists

In any case, what happened, Yaqoub, reflects an unbridled desire on the part of the regime to bury any Islamist, whether he is a scholar, an advocate, a project or even an institution. This is evidenced by the succession of the legislation of the Parliament of the coup in issuing legislation prohibiting anyone from practicing calling or issuing fatwas from non-specialists, who I identified them as belonging to the Ministry of Endowments and Dar Al Ifta only, which does not include Al-Azhar graduates or those working in Al-Azhar committees and scientific or teaching departments.

The matter came on Wednesday, June 23, 2021 AD, until a lawsuit filed before the Administrative Court demanded the dissolution of the Ansar al-Sunna and the Sharia Association, in order to activate the law regulating the practice of civil work. The lawsuit accused the two associations of engaging in political and partisan activities that contravene the purposes of establishing NGOs.

The lawsuit also accused the two associations of forming secret associations, councils and formations of a religious nature through which they call for support and financing of intellectual and material violence and terrorist organizations and to engage in activities that would disturb public order, national unity and national security, according to the lawsuit.

Discrimination according to creed

The lawsuit added that the two associations also call for discrimination between citizens on the basis of religion and belief, because of their extended relations with Sheikh “Muhammad Hussein Yaqoub”. She stated that it was proven that the two societies announced earlier support for the former presidential candidate and affiliated with the Islamist movement, “Hazem Salah Abu Ismail” and the late “Mohamed Morsi” to enable them to hold the post of President of the Republic, through the establishment of links such as the Shura Council of Scholars, the Legitimate Council for Rights Reform, and the Council of Scholars Association Ansar al-Sunna Muhammadiyah.

The lawsuit alleges that the two associations also aim to prepare young people and educate them on the extremist ideology to make them a building block for ISIS and takfiris, as is proven in the case of the “ISIS Imbaba” cell, which is before the criminal court. It is noteworthy that the lawsuit filed comes after a wide controversy raised by the testimony of “Muhammad Hussein Yaqoub” before the Emergency State Security Criminal Court in the case known in the media as the “ISIS Imbaba cell”.

The so-called Emergency State Security Criminal Court had ordered the arrest and summons of both “Yacoub” and Sheikh “Mohammed Hassan” because of their failure to appear to hear their testimony in the case. Last week, Jacob came to the courtroom in a wheelchair. The head of the court told “Yacoub” that “many of the defendants used your words as a pretext for their statements,” and therefore it is necessary to appear to testify before the court.
