On the Syrian Uprising: The Problem and the Solution | Shaykh Muhammad al-Yaqoubi
In the wake of his criticism of the Syrian regime, the Government bans Shaykh Muhammad al-Yaqoubi from public speaking. On 12th May 2011, the world-renowned scholar, Shaykh Muhammad al-Yaqoubi, was dismissed from his job as Friday speaker and lecturer at the Jami' al-Hasan mosque in central Damascus. He was also banned from public speaking, teaching and all religious activities. This decision comes following his 6th May Friday sermon in which he denounced the brutality of the regime, defended the right of the Syrian people to demonstrate, and called for the immediate release of all political prisoners. He challenged the claims from the government of a conspiracy, and said "the problems our people have been facing for 40 years are domestic, and the Syrian people are seeking freedom and reform of the whole political and economic systems." قامت السلطات السورية بعزل الشيخ محمد اليعقوبي من وظيفة الخطابة في جامع الحسن في حي أبو رمانة وسط العاصمة دمشق، كما منع الشيخ اليعقوبي من إلقاء دروسه في الجامع الأموي وغيره من مساجد دمشق. وجاء هذا القرار في أعقاب هذه الخطبة العاصفة حول الأحداث التي تمر بها سورية، التي ألقاها في جامع الحسن يوم الجمعة في ٥ أيار / مايو ٢٠١١ وكان قد استنكر في خطبته ما تقوم بها قوات الأمن من قتل وضرب واعتقال للمتظاهرين، ودافع عن حق الشعب في التظاهر السلمي ، ونفى نظرية المؤامرة التي يتهم بها أفراد الشعب. كما دعا إلى سحب جميع المظاهر العسكرية من الأحياء السكنية وإلى إطلاق سراح المعتقلين، كما استنكر اعتقال المتظاهرين ومحاكمتهم بتهمة إضعاف هيبة الدولة. يذكر أن الشيخ محمد اليعقوبي المشهور بالشيخ أبو الهدى اليعقوبي هو أحد كبار علماء دمشق وأحد أبرز الدعاة في البلدان الناطقة باللغة الإنجليزية، وهو ابن العلامة الكبير الشيخ إبراهيم اليعقوبي رحمه الله.
