In The Name of Allaah, The Most Merciful The Bestower of Mercy


Imaam Shaafi-ee (rahimahullaah) said:

”My verdict against the people of philosophical rhetoric is that they be beaten with palm branches striped of their leaves and with shoes, and that they be carried on the back of camels and paraded in the (presence) of clans and tribes, saying: ‘’This is the reward of those who abandon the Book and the Sunnah, and consented to Philosophical rhetoric.’’ [Source: Quoted in (An-Nahjul Aqwaa Fee Arkaanil Fatwaa): page: 126 with the checking of shaikh saaleh al-fawzaan and intruduction of shaikh abdul azeez aala shaikh]


Imaam Ahmad (rahimahullaah) said:

‘’I am neither a person of philosophical rhetoric nor do I recognise philosophical rhetoric in anything. (I only recognise) that which is found in the Book of Allaah or in the Sunnah of His Messenger (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam) [Quoted in ”An-Nahjul Aqwaa: page: 126]

He (rahimahullaah) also said:

‘’A man cannot be from Ahlus Sunnah until he leaves off blameworthy argumentation in the religion, even if he desires to (establish) the Sunnah by way of it.’’ [An-Nahjul Aqwaa: page: 126]

He (rahimahullaah) also said:

”Do not sit with the people of philosophical rhetoric even if they defend the Sunnah’’ [An-Nahjul Aqwaa: page: 127]
