All praise is due to Allaah, and salaah and salaam be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family and his companions. To proceed:
Inshaa-Allaah in this article, the realities concealed in the Question that was presented to Muhammad Al-Maliki will be unveiled. However, before addressing the issues, the reader must know that it has already been established that the defenders of Maribi, Maghraawi and Halabi at Masjid-As-Sunnah and their supporter Muhammad Al-Maliki have provided no tangible proofs to support their accusations. It has been nearly four months and they still haven’t produced anything. [See link: http://salaficentre.wordpress.com/2012/06/question-to-muhammad-al-maliki-where-are-the-tangile-evidences-you-based-your-criticisms-upon/]
And before unveiling the realities concealed within the question that was presented to Muhammad Al-Maliki, the challenge to the defenders of Maribi, Maghraawi and Halabi at Masjid As-Sunnah is once again as follows: [Produce all such website-links in which are found all those specific accusations found in question. (Note: all such website links when clicked should take the reader directly to the websites (Salafitalk.net and salaficentre.com showing exactly the validity of your accusations, and not what you cut, paste and distort).
The realities concealed within the question
Firstly: The defenders of Maribi, Maghraawi and Halabi at Masjid As-Sunnah informed Muhammad Al-Maliki that the accused is guilty of spreading discord.
Response To The Above False Claim: Noble reader: Bear in mind that the dispute is about innovations, innovators in religion and making known the truth. The reality of the affair is that the scholars who are aware of the innovations of [Maribi, Halabi, Maghraawi] have refuted them, and the Maraakiz of salafiyyah continue to warn against them. However, the Masjid Committee of masjid As-Sunnah continues defending these innovators and wishes that they are not questioned about the affair. So when questioned about the affair, they accuse the questioner of spreading discord, when the fact is that innovators are the main cause of discord amongst the Muslims. Read the statements of the scholars as follows:
Imaam Fudayl Ibn Iyaad (rahimahullaah) said:
”whoever honours an innovator has assisted in the demolition of Islaam.’ Sheikh Saaleh Al-Fawzaan said, because innovation is contrary to Islaam. If you give support to an innovator, then indeed you have assisted in the demolition of Islaam, because Islaam is the Sunnah and the Sunnah is Islaam. So it is obligatory upon the person that he does not honour the people of innovation, and that he neither praises nor commends them; as we hear at present the praises for the kuffaar, the Jews and the Christians…. [Source:It-haaful Qaaree Bitta’liqaat Alaa Sharh As-Sunnah Lil Imaam Barbahaaree, page: 323, Vol:2]
Al-Allaamah Zaid Bin Haadi Al-Madkhali (may Allaah preserve him) said:
”The mubtadi (the innovator) is the cause for the splitting (in the ummah); because splitting is connected to innovation and unity (upon the sound creed and methodology of the Salaf) is connected to the Sunnah. The obligation of refuting the Mukhaalif (the opposer of the truth) is not lifted from the scholar due to anticipation of harm, unless it is harm he is not able to bear. Then (in this case), Allah does not burden a soul beyond what it can bear. The earth is not devoid of people of knowledge who will carry out refutation against the Mubtadi and the Mukhaalif.” [Source: Al Ajwibah Al Mukhtasar Alaa As-ila Al-Ashrati(Page43-44)]
Al-Allaamah Saaleh Al-Fawzaan (may Allaah preserve him) said:
”The cause of the differences that take place between the callers is the differing in methodologies. And had the callers (may Allaah guide them and grant them success) traversed a singular methodology; and that is the methodology of the Messenger (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam)– that which the Messenger (sallal-laahu-alayhi-sallam) and his companions were upon, then these differences would not have occurred. Therefore, it is obligatory upon all the callers to make their methodology one–upon the Book of Allaah and the Sunnah of the Messenger of Allaah (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam); and that their call is (carried out) for the sake of Allaah and to make the word of Allaah uppermost. Their call should not be for the sake of desires, raising individuals or parties; rather their call should be sincerely for Allaah’s Face, to make Allaah’s word uppermost, to follow the Messenger of Allaah (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam) and to aid his Religion. (So) by way of this the differences will cease.”[Source:Al-Ijaabaatul Muhimmah Fil Mashaakil Al-Mulimmah (page:221-222)]
Shaikh Raslaan (may Allaah preserve him) said:
Abul Fitan (i.e. Abul Hasan al-Maribi) came, armed with corrupt principles and false fundamentals in order to corrupt the Religion of the Muslims and deceive the believers in their creed, and in order to conceal by way of his call the boundaries between truth and falsehood, through affairs of misguidance and affairs leading (one) astray…..for further details see links: [http://www.rslan.com…ils.php?id=361] [http://www.sahab.net/forums/index.php?s=36eaa1b806bb50624d7b29cdf77e069b&showtopic=127761]
Noble Reader: After reading the above statements of the scholars, you will come to know that the innovators [Maribi, Halabi, Maghraawi] and those who defend them at Masjid as-Sunnah are the guilty party. Indeed, the sensible person can make a sound judgment in this affair after knowing the reality of the situation, as Shaikhul Islaam Ibn Taymiyyah (rahimahullaah) said: ”The sensible person does not (merely) look at what is apparent, but he looks at the reality.” [Al-Uboodiyyah]
Therefore, Yaa Muhammad (Al-Maliki)! Are you not aware of the manifest difference between us and the people you defend at Masjid As-Sunnah?! We defend the haqq and they defend the innovators [Maribi, Halabi and Maghraawi]; so what led you to defend Masjid As-Sunnah, whilst you compared the accused to Abdullaah Bin Abee Salool [the head of the hypocrites]?! Indeed, this is a mighty slander. And the least we can say is that this statement of yours is absolute nonsense. Ibn Abdi Rabbihi said: ”choosing speech is more difficult than writing it down, and they said: The choice of a man is in harmony with his intellect.” [Source: quoted by Shaikh Muhammad Bin Umar Saalim Baazmool in Manhajul Bahthi Al-Ilmiy Wa-Kitaabah Fee Uloom Ash-Sharee-ah: page: 17]
Secondly: The defenders of Maribi, Halabi and Maghraawi at Masjid As-Sunnah claim that the accused is guilty of backbiting, qeel wa qaal and slander
Noble Reader: The defenders of Maribi, Maghraawi and Halabi at Masjid-As-Sunnah openly declare their support for these innovators. It was due to their obstinacy and blind defense of the Ikhwaani Innovator Maribi that led to Shaikh Rabee’s warning against them. So, how can anyone be guilty for transmitting the manifest verdicts of the scholars against the defenders of innovators?! Al-Allaamah Rabee Bin Haadee Al-Madkhalee (hafidha-hullaah) advised the Masjid Committee of Masjid As-Sunnah in 2003 as follows:
”Give them some respite. Give them some respite till some other days. If they stood by the truth, aided it, and (word unclear) the falsehood and belittle it, then they are your brothers. And if they continue to argue, wallow (in falsehood), then we never doubt, or hesitate in (holding) that they are Ashaab ul-Ahwaa (people of desires). Hence forth, they are to be boycotted and there is no liberty. However, I ask Allaah that He does not prolong their affair until they show arrogance and stubbornness, and being occupied in falsehood.
Returning to the truth is better than wallowing in falsehood and a believer is one who always returns to Allaah. And a believer is one, who constantly repents, and Allaah rejoices with the repentance of His servant, and Allaah loves those who constantly repent and those who purify themselves.
So if he has stood by Abul Hassan until this date, there is no doubt that he is upon falsehood, and if comes and brings these tricks and plots, then he is given respite, for a week or two, so he either repents[…section cut] and goes with the Scholars of the Salaf and the Scholars of the Salafi Manhaj, in the truth [that they are upon] and in aid of the truth for which they stood for, then he is from us and is our brother. And the one who refused except but to follow the devil then he is to be boycotted. http://salaficentre.wordpress.com/2012/03/shaikh-rabees-2003-telephone-at-masjid-as-sunnah-cheethamhill-manchester/#more-1922]
Noble Reader: Where is the slander, backbiting and Qeel wal Qaal in this affair? Indeed, the sensible person can make a judgement in this affair, as Shaykhul Islaam Ibn Taymiyyah (rahimahullaah) said: ”The sensible person does not (merely) look at what is apparent, but he looks at the reality.” On the other hand, the defenders of Maribi, Halabi and Maghraawi at Masjid as-Sunnah still persist in defence of Maribi.
Yaa Muhammad (Al-Maliki)! What excuse can you offer for endorsing the lies and fabrications of the defenders of Maribi at Masjid As-Sunnah after their true state of affairs is manifested?! And what excuse can you offer for slandering and comparing the accused to the head of the hypocrites Abdullaah Bin Abee Salool?! ”Indeed, choosing speech is more difficult than writing it down, and they said: ’’the choice of a man is in harmony with his intellect.”
Thirdly: The defenders of Maribi, Halabi and Maghraawi at Masjid As-Sunnah stated: ‘‘and anyone who affiliates with these Masaajid is also an innovator and hizbi. He (i.e. the accused) would use general statements of the scholars and specify Masjids of Ahlus Sunnah of innovation and misguidance, particularly Masjid As-Sunnah, Makki Masjid, and Masjid Al-Furqaan.”
Noble Reader: The Masjid Committee of Masjid As-Sunnah namely: [Abu Fadl Al-Libi, Abu Shuraih Al-Libi, Abu Umaamah Al-Libi, Abu Abdillaah Akram Sharghaawi Al-Libi are Hizbiyyoon and this is the verdict of Al-Allaamah Rabee Bin Haadee based on sound proofs. Read the statement of Shaikh Rabee on page 2 again if you wish; the Shaikh gave a specific judgement against those specific members of their Masjid Committee who persisted upon defence of Maribi (the ikhwaani innovator). And to this day they have not freed themselves from him!
And with regards to the statement of the liars as follows: ”and anyone who affiliates with those Masjids is an innovator and a hizbi.” Noble Reader: This lie of theirs is very dangerous because they seek to give the impression that the accused declares all those affiliated with them to be innovators. They hoped that this lie of theirs would win them the support of the common folk; because it gives the impression that those reprimanding Masjid As-Sunnah are excessive and unjust, and that they even declare everyone who affiliates with those Masjids an innovator and an illegal partisan. Once again, the challenge to Masjid As-Sunnah is as follows: [Produce a single website link directly from Salafitalk.net and Salaficentre.com to prove your accusations]. Indeed, Yaa Muhammad (Al-Maliki)! How can you endorse the lies and fabrications of these people, let alone defend them?! ”Choosing speech is more difficult than writing it down, and they said: The choice of a man is in harmony with his intellect”
As for Makki Masjid; those in charge of its affairs are allies of Abu Usaamah Adh-Dhahabi [A khateeb at Greenlane Mosque-Birmingham and staunch defender of the Ikhwaani innovator Abul Hasan Al-Maribi. Likewise, those in charge of its affairs are allies of Abu Suhaib Bassaam Ali Haaj [a staunch defender of the innovator Ali Halabi].
The state of affairs of Abu Usaamah Adh-Dhahabi:

Noble Reader: The Masjid Committee of Makki Masjid announces and gathers the common Muslims to listen to those who defend and praise the innovators [Ali Halabi, Maghraawi and Maribi], whilst it is incumbent upon those in charge of the affairs of the Masaajid to clarify the truth for the common people or at least keep them away from the innovators and their supporters.
Al-Allaamah Saalih Al-Fawzan said: ”Yes, separation between the truth and the falsehood; this is correct. We make a distinction between truth and the falsehood and (also between) the people of truth and the people of falsehood. We are going to refute (the people of falsehood), and the Scholars refuted (the people of falsehood). This is not for the purpose of causing division; this is to gather the people upon the truth, because with people remaining upon misguidance and upon the speech of falsehood, then this causes division between the Muslims. As for clarifying the truth for the people, so they can gather upon it, then this is the da’wah towards unity, not the da’wah towards separation. The da’wah towards separation is when it is said, ‘The people of falsehood are not to be refuted.’ This is the da’wah to division if they only gave thought.” [Taken from the recorded lessons of Shaykh Saalih al-Fawzaan in explanation of Sharhus-Sunnah of Imaam al-Barbahaaree (d.329H).] http://www.salafitalk.net/st/viewmessages.cfm?Forum=9&Topic=12352
Finally: The defenders of Maribi, Maghraawi and Halabi at Masjid As-Sunnah said: ”He (i.e. the accused) also goes to the extent of accusing the scholars who attended these Masjids of being ignorant of the affairs of the Manhaj and are supporters of hizbiyyah and misguidance, mainly Shaikh Wasiyullaah Abbaas, Shaikh Abdul Azeez Sadhaan and others, who have held talks at these Masjids.”
Noble Reader: And Allaah’s Aid is sought! May Allaah guide these liars and slanderers. How can they utter such a mighty statement without any tangible proof?! Yes, Shaikh Wasiyullaah (may Allaah preserve him) is a man of knowledge, but he is human and he is grossly mistaken regarding his criticism of Maktabah Salafiyyah (as it is not supported by any proof at all); he is wrong in his defence of Suhaib Hasan, Abdul Hadi, Jamiat ahl il hadeeth, ihyaa turaath; he is mistaken for praising Ihyaa turaath and attacking Maktabah salafiyyah because the maktabah (courageously) refuted Ihyaa turaath, suhaib hasan (and his son), and abu usaamah and abdul haadee etc – this is the basis of the refutations of sh Wasiyullaah. However, we are not aware of any individual member of a salafi masjid committee who labels Shaikh Wasiyullaah a supporter of Hizbiyyah and misguidance. Indeed, these liars and slanderers at Masjid As-Sunnah should fear Allaah, and once again the challenge them is as follows: [Produce a single direct website link at (salafitalk.net/salaficentre.com) in which is contained exactly what they have stated above].
Noble Reader: This lie of theirs is nothing else but a plot to likened us to the haddaadiyyah–those who vilify the Mashaa-yikh, just as they sought to likened us to those who have no mercy and are hasty in passing judgments against the common people without guidance from the scholars. These liars attempted this plot and Muhammad Al-Maliki endorsed it for them, because he made it known in his disgraceful, weak and displaced response in support of their lies and fabrications. Al-Ataabee (rahimahullaah) said: ”The one who composes lines of poetry or compiles a book, then indeed he will be liable to argumentation and raising of the tongues, except the one who debates in it with nothing else but justice and judges with other than desires; and few are those (with this quality). [Source: Manhajul Bahthi: page: 17]
And whenever the detailed criticisms of the scholars are transmitted against the innovators [Maribi, Halabi and Maghraawi], their defenders at Masjid As-Sunnah seek to divert attention by way of deceit, fabrications and lies, so that they can give us the image of those who are enemies of the scholars and the common folk. And Muhammad al-Maliki comes along and endorses their claims without proof, rather he endorses their lies and exceeds the limits in his statements and even compared the accused with Abdullah Bin Abee Salool the head of the hypocrites. So after the defenders of Maribi, Halabi and Maghraawi presented their lies, fabrications and distortions to Muhammad Al-Maliki, he then included in his disgraceful and weak response, saying: ”I do not say that you should not speak about mistakes, but do not spread hatred, boycotting, enmity. Is it either like Abu Bakr or no more brotherhood; are you like abu bakr, am afraid you are like Abdullaah bin Abee salool. What is this Yaa Ikhwaan? This is not the correct way Yaa Ikhwaan.”
Nobel Reader: There are few more problematic statements of Muhammad Al-Maliki in his false, deceitful and disgraceful defense of the defenders of Maribi, Halabi and Maghraawi at masjid As-Sunnah. Inshaa-Allaah, some of those irresponsible and false statements will be elaborated upon in the next post. Indeed, returning to correctness is a virtue; and it is incumbent upon Muhammad Al-Maliki to free himself from these lies and makes it known that he was mistaken in his twenty minute rage in defence of the defenders of Maribi, Maghraawi and Halabi at Masjid As-Sunnah; otherwise, we have no other choice but to warn against him for his support of them and his attacks against those who expose their corrupt alliances. Returning to the haqq is a virtue; but there are obstacles to accepting the truth after its clarification: see link: http://salaficentre.wordpress.com/2012/03/abridgedshaikh-abdullaah-al-bukhaari-reasons-for-persistence-upon-falsehood-after-its-clarification/
And Allaah is the Bestower of success.
