Asked About Spying on People who Want to Harm the Scholars

by The Albaani Blog


 

Questioner: Is it allowed to spy on people who want to harm the scholars or callers of the Ummah? In order to distance this harm from them, is it allowed to spy?

Al-Albaani: I think the question contradicts itself, how did this person who wants to spy come to know that there are people who want to harm the Ummah except by spying?

Questioner: [He and the others present start laughing].
