Muhaysini Expresses Disgust with IS for “Staining Islam’s Reputation” After Assassination Attempt on His Life

Abdullah al-Muhaysini, a prominent Saudi cleric and Hayat Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) official, expressed disgust with the Islamic State (IS) for “staining Islam’s Reputation” following a recent assassination attempt on his life, and discussed the West’s continued persecution of HTS, stating, “we have nothing to do with you.”

Bilal Abdul Kareem, a commentator embedded with Syrian rebels, conducted the 23 minute, 55 second interview via his On the Ground News (OGN) media organization. The English-subtitled video was entitled “Dr. Abdullah Muhaysini Responds to Controversies,” and was uploaded on YouTube on June 20, 2017.

After briefly discussing the events of the assassination attempt, Muhaysini regarded Muslims who migrate to join IS, declaring he was “very sad” of the consequences. Muhaysini explained that Islam is a religion of mercy and peace, and that the actions of IS fighters “stain Islam’s image.” He stated:

And that makes me sad because also they’ll stain Islam’s image. I am sad also for the Mujahidin because they’ll stain the Mujahidin’s image. Many people will not be able to differentiate between the true Mujahidin today who belong to the mercy and justice of Allah’s religion Islam, and those (ISIS) who made their religion to be the sucking of blood, killing of innocents and the [severing of] body parts (as in explosions). I am very sad for that and insha’Allah this sadness is regarding the staining of Islam’s image and that some people may not differentiate between the Mujahidin and the injustice of those people (ISIS).

Muhaysini then addressed the would-be assassin and his supporters directly, asserting that they “have lost the way” and advising them to “return back to Allah Almighty”:

The message, since you want it to be direct, is for the man who wanted to kill me a few days ago, and he killed himself. I am asking, ‘What did you benefit out of this?’ For sure now he is with Allah, and perhaps [he has been placed in] Hell, and there are many, like him, who support and sympathize with people like him....Fear Allah and I know that you all want the paradise but you have lost the way. I know that you want with sincere intentions to go to Paradise otherwise you wouldn’t kill yourself, but I am telling you that good intentions (alone) are not enough...so I advise you to return back to Allah Almighty

Abdullah al-Muhaysini additionally discussed the West’s continued persecution of HTS following its rebranding and split from al-Qaeda (AQ) under its former name, Nusra Front (NF). He concluded that HTS is entirely unlike AQ in both policy and leadership, and since entering Syria as NF, its actions have always concerned the Syrian people foremost. He accused the West of “delud[ing] the Syrian people” and stated that “[NF] is the one who brought you the problems,” and that, even after HTF formed, the West used “double standards” to continue targeting the group:

The Syrian people’s interest is more important than everything and that Syrian people want Islam and the toppling of Bashar Al-Assad and this is why they (AQ) came to Syria. And then they said we will declare disengagement with Al-Qaida and they changed their name. And this was a bad situation for the West, and the West is using double standards. If they were professional they would say we are outside the war as long as you are fighting in Syria so we have nothing to do with you. And we were fighting you for that reason but now we are outside of the issue.

The interview additionally addressed Muhaysini’s status as a terrorist in his home country of Saudi Arabia. It concluded with a request for the audience to send additional questions for a future open interview with the cleric, likely similar to OGN’s two-part interview with Australian cleric and former Jabhat Fateh al-Sham (JFS) official Mostafa Mahamed (AKA Abu Sulayman al-Muhajir) earlier this month.
