The delegation also stressed the role of employees in public affairs, scholars and sheikhs in demonstrating the danger of this step that the government is taking the people towards, as being a declaration of war from Allah (swt) and His Messenger (saw), because the IMF is interest-based (riba) and imposes oppressive conditions upon people that in which people taste bitterness in their living conditions.

Al-Tartousi also stressed the prohibition of dealing with the IMF, and the importance of warning against it, and that he stands against any decision or project carried out by the government in violation of the rules of Sharia law.
At the end of the visit, the delegation presented a brief study prepared by the Central Communications Committee and the Activities Committee in Wilayah of Lebanon on the International Monetary Fund; its conditions and dangers, and some detailed solutions to get rid of this Fund, and the radical solution of joining Lebanon with its surroundings, Ash-Sham, and with the Ummah in the project of the second Khilafah Rashidah (rightly-guided Caliphate) on the method of Prophethood, which encompasses all the political, economic and social capabilities of the Islamic Ummah.
