    Removing books from mosques and libraries doesn’t remove the truth from people’s heart.

    this decision is not from the ulamah of the egypt but the order it was from the government of egypt.
    even the ulamah of egypt are sad for this order but they can’t do nothing they don’t have a power to stop the government of egypt.

    One of greatest threat Islam is facing in d world is presdent El-Sisi of Egypt. Coz his body language toward Islam is questionable. In fact d very first day I saw him in Aljazeera news tryn to position himself as d military-democratic presdent of Egypt he irritates my feeln. True Islamic teacn is not advocating extremism or fanatism rather humility, humbleness, love n caring for d entire human race. El-Sisi u have not spoken for d Bama muslim , kashmier muslim, palestinian muslim but u busy ur self limiting Islamic books of reputable and noble positive impact to Islam. Most of d aggression d world is seeing with muslim is d level of oppressn n subjugatn they r put tru n eventually turns unbearable n retaliates. Example palestin ok.

    May Alllah (swt) destroy this regime and remove them power. And protect those books and knowledge from their Shaytanic hands.

    The regime is either Yahood, Shia, or Munafiqoon. May Allah destroy and remove them from power!

    Clearly, the solution of the world’s growing disorder remains ISLAM. To remove the books from the shelves in Egypt and any other country would not change anything. The knowledge has already been internalised and being practiced openly. It is common knowledge that Islam is peace and can never be associated with EXTREMISM.

    This has convinced me that El-Sisi is a jew. May Allah treat him in the same manner Ariel Sharon was treated, amin ya Qahhar.

    Subhanallah. This is a wrong decision. Allah shall protect the truth, just as he had protected it right from the beginning. They should remember that pharon is from Egypt and he could not found it easy, when he fought against the truth.

    This is a stupid idea and they won’t succeed anymore. Removing books of Salafi is not a solution cause the truth still shall remain the same in the hearts and minds of righteous people. What about salafi websites? What about memorization in their hearts? Shall they ban them also? Or
    This is ahate speech and ignition to Jihad.
