Can the Khalifah be IMPEACHED?
Assalaamu Alaykum. Alhamdulillah!
I have not been around in about 3 days but rest assured I was not hiding. Allahu Akbar, Allah SWT is Al-Azeez.
I was reading in my "Volume 1 of Tafsir Ibn Kathir
" containing "Part 1 and 2 - Surat Al-Fatihah to Ayah 252 of Surat Al-Baqarah
" and I found something very interesting. This is something that people might not know because it is in a book and not talked about.
Here is the excerpt that I took from Tafsir ibn Kathir concerning,
"The Obligation of appointing a Khalifah and some related Issues.
Al-Qurtubi, as well as other scholars, said that this Ayah (2:30) proves the obligation of appointing a Khalifah to pass judgements on matters of dispute between people, to aid the oppressed against the oppressor, to implement the Islamic penal code and to forbid evil. There are many other tasks that can only be fulfilled by appointing the Imam, and what is necessary in performing an obligation, is an obligation itself. We should state here that Imamah occurs by either naming a successor, as a group among Ahl As-Sunnah scholars said occurred - by the Prophet - in the case of Abu Bakr, or hinting to a successor. Or, the current Khalifah names a certain person as Khalifah after him, as Abu Bakr did with `Umar. Or, the Khalifah might leave the matter in the hands of the Muslim consultative council, or a group of righteous men, just as `Umar did. Or, the people of authority could gather around a certain person to whom they give the pledge of allegiance, or they could select one among them to choose the candidate, according to the majority of the scholars.
The Khalifah must be a responsible adult Muslim male, able to perform Ijtihad (independent legal judgments), bodily able, righteous, with knowledge of warfare, politics. He also must be from the tribe of Quraysh, according to the correct view, but it is not necessary that he be from the tribe of Bani Hashim, or that he be immune from error, as the Rafidah (Shiites) falsely claim.
When the Khalifah becomes an immoral person (Fasiq), should he be impeached There is disagreement over this matter, but the correct view is that he is not to be removed, because the Messenger of Allah said,
(Unless you witness a clear Kufr regarding which you have clear proof from Allah. )
Does the Khalifah have the right to resign from his post There is a difference on this issue. It is a fact that Al-Hasan bin `Ali removed himself from the position of Khalifah and surrendered it to Mu`awiyah. However, this occurred because of a necessity, and Al-Hasan was praised for this action.

Now with that said, The kafir leader (Abdullah ibn Abdul Aziz Al-Saud) commited kufr when he allied with the Disbelieving Crusaders to fight the Muslims who call to banner of TAWHEED Wal JIHAD
My proof is this right here,
"O Believers, do not take Jews and Christians as an alliance, they are only allies to each other, and whosoever allies with them, he is one of them, and Allah does not guide the oppressors." [EMQ Surah Ma'idah,5 :51 -52]
Should (Abdullah ibn Abdul Aziz Al-Saud) be impeached(removed) from his position of Khalifah/Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques
? I will leave with 2 simple questions, Do you fear Allah SWT? After knowledge reaches you will you act
upon it? KNOWLEDGE IS FOR ACTING UPON!
And for the one who asked me why do I not act upon this, Believe me I am, Insha`Allah!
All praise is due to Allah SWT, Lord of Mankind, Jinns and all things that exist.
