Important advice and reflections from Shaykh Ṣāliḥ al-Fawzān

[Q]: What is your advice to our brothers from Ahl al-Sunnah in Yemen who are being fought by the Houthiyoon (Rāfidah Shīʿah)?

[A]: Upon them is to depend upon Allāh (ʿazza wa jal) and to supplicate to Allāh abundantly. They should defend themselves and their wealth according to their ability. What has afflicted them is as a result of their differing among themselves. If only they united under one banner nobody would have been able to interfere in their affairs.  However, when they split, and each one wanted what he desired, it occurred to them what you see.  Yes...  I advise them to have patience and to carry out that which is required, and from that is to come together and not be divided:

وَلاَ تَنَازَعُواْ فَتَفْشَلُواْ وَتَذْهَبَ رِيحُكُمْ وَاصْبِرُواْ
Do not dispute (with one another) lest you lose courage and your strength departs, and be patient...
[Sūrah al-Anfāl: 46]
وَلاَ تَكُونُواْ كَالَّذِينَ تَفَرَّقُواْ وَاخْتَلَفُواْ
And be not as those who divided and differed among themselves...
[Sūrah Āli-ʿImrān: 105]
