Question: Is that which in present days is known as a “military coup” against the ruler, mentioned in the Religion or is it an innovation?
Answer: There is no basis for these actions in Islaam. And it is in opposition to the Islaamic methodology with regard to establishing the da’wah (Call to Islaam) and creating the right atmosphere
for it. Rather, it is only an innovation introduced by the disbelievers, which has influenced some Muslims. This is what I stated in my notes and explanation to Al-‘Aqeedah At-Tahaawiyyah.
