Shaikh Rabee Bin Haadee Al Madkhalee (hafidha-hullaah) said:
We do not say that there are people of ijtihaad amongst ahlul bidah because they are followers of desires, and Allaah and His Messenger have testified to this. The misguided innovator stirs up discord/splits and errs, and then says to you, ‘’This is ijtihaad’’.
And when Hikmatiyaar and the misguided parties (in Afghanistaan) murdered Shaikh Jameel Ur-Rahmaan, they said, ‘’This is ijtihaad’’. Making lawful the spilling of the blood of the salafis is ijtihaad to them. This is what it is, they (ahlul bidah) do not fall upon an affair of misguidance or a calamity except that they say, ‘’This is ijtihaad’’.
This is a dilution of Islaam. It is mixing falsehood, misguidance and bidah with truth when the mistakes of the (real scholars of ijtihaad) for which they are rewarded, are placed at the same level with innovation about which the Messenger (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam) has informed of it being in the fire.  end of quote
We hope that this will assist those brothers who continue to lend an ear to the hizbies and are told that the differences between the salafis and the organizations of tahazzub are issues of permissible differing; for if that was the case, the scholars would not have ruled that the organizations of tahazzub such as Jamiat Ahle Hadeeth and Ihyaa Turaath be boycotted and warned against.
We ask Allaah for Ikhlaas and Thabaat
