There is no doubt that what is happening in Syria is the height of oppression and injustice. In the last century we have possibly not seen any greater disaster than the Syrian oppression, and there is no doubt that Bashar al-Assad is the modern Pharaoh of our times.
It is the duty of every Muslim to help against any oppression whether it be towards Muslims or Non-Muslim, whether it be towards humans or animals it is our God-giving responsibility that we stand up against injustice & oppression wherever and whenever it may be.
Does this mean that we here living in the west have a duty to go and fight in Syria and join the Jihad (struggle) against the evil forces of Bashar?
In this video Shaykh Dr. Yasir Qadhi answers the controversial question – Should Muslims in the west go to Syria and fight?
