Quote From Shaikh Ahmad Baazmool (may Allaah preserve him and prolong his life upon goodness)

”Also he (i.e. Shaikh Saalim At-Taweel) has a statement in rejection of the speech of the scholars, rather (in rejection) of the speech of the Salaf that a person who praises a person of innovation is to be placed alongside that person of innovation.  He (i.e. Shaikh Saalim) rejects this affair, saying: ”this enforcement is false.” [End of Quote] [1]

 

[Compiler]–Some statements of the Salaf concerning this affair

Imaam Barbahaaree (rahimahullaah) stated:

If you see a man speaking well of Ibn Abee Du’aad, Al-Mareesee, Thumaamah, Abul Hudhail or Hishaam Al-Footee or any of their adherents, beware of him because he is an innovator. These people were upon apostasy, so leave this man who spoke well of them and whomever he mentioned of them.’[2]

‘If you see a man speaking well of Ibn Abee Du’aad, Al-Mareesee, Thumaamah, Abul Hudhail or Hishaam Al-Footee’

Sheikh Fawzaan (may Allaah preserve him and prolong his life upon goodness) commented on the above statement, saying:

”If you see a man commending the people of evil and the scholars of misguidance, such as these off shoots of the Jahmiyyah; then know that he is a sinful one, a corrupter and a misguided one; because he does not praise them except that he loves them and approves of their path.  And if you see a man commending Ahlus Sunnah, such as the likes of Imaam Ahmad and Ibnul Mubaarak, and likewise commending the Scholars of the Taabi’een and those who came after them, then know that he is a person of goodness; because he commends not Ahlus Sunnah except that he loves the Sunnah and holds unto it.   This teaches us a lesson–some of the brothers or some of the students of knowledge commend some of the innovators or the people of desires and deviated views, whilst not examining their views and orientations. They attack and find fault with the people of goodness; because they lend an ear to those who find fault with them and believe them. This is a severe danger.   If you find fault with the people of goodness, the people of knowledge and Ahlus Sunnah, and commend the people of deviated views and orientations, then this is a severe danger even if you do not sit with them. So this is  from (those affairs)we should be mindful of, which many people have fallen into at present. [3]

 

 Imaam Fudayl Ibn Iyaad (rahimahullaah) said:

‘And whoever debases an innovator, Allah will raise him in Paradise by a hundred ranks.’ [4]

Sheikh Saaleh Al-Fawzaan commented on the above statement, saying: ”It is obligatory that the people of innovation are not shown hospitality either by way of a sitting, praise or other than that of different types of hospitality. It is obligatory to debase them because Allah has debased them, and this is also from (having) love and hate for the sake of Allah.” [5]

 

Imaam Fudayl Ibn Iyaad said: ‘So for Allah, never shelter an innovator’ [6]

Sheikh Saaleh Al-Fawzaan commented on the above statement, saying: ”So upon you is that you keep away from bidah and do not be lackadaisical in that ever, in order that you may be protected upon your Religion and the Sunnah of your Prophet (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam). [7]

 

Imaam Fudayl Ibn Iyaad (rahimahullaah) said:

”whoever honors an innovator has assisted in the demolition of Islaam.’ [8]

Sheikh Saaleh Al-Fawzaan commented on the above statement, saying: ”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 yahood and the Nasaaraa…. [9]
