Question

What is the Jehovah’s Witnesses group? Is it permissible to deal with them?

Answer

All perfect praise be to Allaah, The Lord of the Worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of worship except Allaah, and that Muhammad, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam,  is His slave and Messenger.

 

The Jehovah’s Witnesses is a secret organization that is apparently Christian but Jewish in reality. It was founded in 1874 in America by Charles Russell, and so came to be known as “Russellism”. They are called the new students of the Bible. They are known as the “watchtower”. Then, their name became “Jehovah’s Witnesses”. Jehovah is the god of the children of Israel as repeated in their Torah.

One of the objecives of this organization is to spread immoral chaos, abandoning all human virtues, they do not believe in the Hereafter, Judgment, Punishment, Paradise, Hell, etc. They have an extensive activity in many countries especially in the Islamic countries.

Some European countries became aware of their danger and consequently banned their activity. Due to their intense scheming, they work in many countries in various ways. They cooperate with the Jewish organizations which work under various slogans.

Accordingly, it is a dangerous Jewish organization, which hides itself behind Christianity and is hostile to Muslims. Thus, it is impermissible to deal with them since it is like any other Jewish organization.

Allaah Knows best.
