Military coup an innovation by Imaam Al Bani

Question: What is called today as a military coup against the Ruler, does this have any occurrence in the deen or is it an innovation.

Answer: These actions have no basis in Islaam,and they are in opposition to the Islamic Manhaj in laying down the foundations of da’wah and bringing about a righteous land for it. But indeed it is an innovation of the disbelievers, by which some of the Muslims got affected by, and this is what I mentioned in the commentary and explanation of al-Aqeedah at-Tahaawiyyah. (Al-Asaalah, Vol. 10).
