This compilation of articles entitled “Thorns that do but Perforate” is a collection of the statements of our noble scholars clarifying aspects of the methodology of the Salaf in dealing with innovators and false methodologies, aspects that have become confused and – on occasion – somewhat purposefully distorted by those who follow desires rather than evidences.
From amongst the techniques employed by the likes of certain associate/s of Madeenah.com and their affiliates is to divert attention away from such principles through promoting selective statements from the scholars relating to “busying yourself with knowledge”, and “leave asking about this one and that one”; statements that are accurate and in fact perfectly sound advice that we are accustomed to from our scholars, however such statements are employed in a deceptive manner by these wayward individuals in portraying a false methodology, and then upon complete audacity attributing this methodology to the scholars[!].
We therefore provide to the reader a compilation of statements from our noble scholars relating to the affair of innovators and the correct stance toward them – from amongst the same scholars certain Madeenah.com members will claim do not engage themselves in such affairs and instead advise the people to “busy yourself with knowledge”, a deceptive ploy intended to divert attention away from the advice and warnings of the scholars against the people of innovation and desires….perhaps the same people of innovation and desires certain Madeenah.com member/s promote and do not clarify their state for agendas and objectives they desire.
We ask Allah to guide these individuals, and pray that they may rectify their path.
