|[Here is a brief section of the Uzbekistan speech Kabbani gave supporting the Uzbek government's war against Islam, as well as speaking for the kufar in similar conflicts in other parts of the world, notably the Caucasus]|
Obstacles to Interaction Between Religious and Spiritual Traditions
Shortly after the Soviet Union’s war with Afghanistan, Uzbekistan experienced the unfortunate influx of Afghan Arabs, who introduced a foreign ideology known as “Wahhabism”, viewed as strange and radical. This facilitated confrontations between Uzbek authorities and the foreigners, who inspired Uzbek youth to indulge in this narrow ideology, which is rejected by the majority of traditional Islamic scholars throughout the world. These
groups imposed their radical interpretation of Islam through military confrontations, a strategy that no government can tolerate.
The extremists declare war against anyone who holds contrary views, even governments. In Egypt, Jordan, Syria, Pakistan, Algeria, and now in the
Caucasus and Central Asia, Wahhabi-minded groups oppose their governments. The strategy of these movements is to infiltrate mosques, traditional
centers of learning, and charitable organizations from where they indoctrinate the religiously oriented. They forcefully impose their views on
weak societies, in hopes of conquering one and establishing a centralized base.
They justify their militant acts and criminal means of fundraising by claiming to wage a “jihad” for the preservation of Islam. We find many examples of this phenomenon today, through vigilante groups declaring “death to America”, or coming against their governments in various parts of the Muslim world, including Central Asia. This contradicts the explicit teaching of the Prophet Muhammad (s), who instructed Muslims to never oppose a ruler, even if he commits injustice, as long as he does not prevent the performance of prayer. Thus, those under the Wahhabi influence exploit Islam when it suits them and likewise contravene it at their convenience.
Uzbek authorities have responded accordingly in their goal to maintain law and order, and towards guarding their Ahl as-Sunnah wal Jama`at heritage.
Many of these radical elements have been jailed or deported in the government’s attempt to isolate and diffuse external-financed attempts to
break down mainstream Islamic institutions throughout Uzbekistan.
hmm.. i thought that he sallallahu alaihi wa sallam said not to rebel as long as the leader ESTABLISHES prayer, whereas, Kabbani says as long as the leader doesn't PREVENT prayer. Quite a difference....

Does anyone have the reference for the hadith mentioned in the last part about prayer? When was this speech given? ???

Chapter 17: THE BEST AND THE WORST OF YOUR RULERS
Book 020, Number 4573:
It has been narrated on the authority of 'Auf b. Malik that the Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) said: The best of your rulers are those whom you love and who love you, who invoke God's blessings upon you and you invoke His blessings upon them. And the worst of your rulers are those whom you hate and who hate you and whom you curse and who curse you. It was asked (by those present): Shouldn't we overthrow them with the help of the sword? He said: No, as long as they establish prayer among you. If you then find anything detestable in them. You should hate their administration, but do not withdraw yourselves from their obedience.
The growth of Kabbani's version of Islam is just the brand that tyrants all over the world are happy to see flourish.

I think the presumption in this Hadith is that the ruler is ruling by the Shari'ah (the rule of Allah). Because we know from the Qur'an that one who rules by anything other than the Law of Allah is "Fasiq", "Dhaalim" and "Kaafir".
Correct me if I'm wrong.
