Shaikh Zayd Al-Madkhali on Abu Usaamah’s position towards Abul Hasan Al-Maribi (The Innovator)

Question To Shaikh zayd 

Our Sheikh Zayd Al-Madkhali was asked: “Aboo Usaamah says, ” My position concerning him, is that the lajnah of medinah is trying to deal with the issue, and I’m waiting to see what they have to say. The lajnah consist of our Shiekhs and strong students of knowledge who are known for their fairness, knowledge, and taqwa Insha Allah. Until that time, I’m making dua for the Shiekh’s return, and I’m not throwing him off of the dawah, speaking bad about him, nor am I going to busy the ppl with his issue Insha Allah. I don’t agree with making him an issue of Walaa and Baraa neither. If you don’t agree with Shiekh Rab’ee (may Allah protect him) on this issue, then you’re against the Dawah and you’re astray, and not Salify!”

Shaikh Zayd Answered:

He answered: “In reality, it is obligatory upon Abee Usaamah to abandon this warning and this meth-od. And there is no obstacle in reading what Shaykh Rabee’ wrote, and what the people of al-Madeenah wrote and what Abul-Hasan al-Ma`ribee wrote. It is fitting for him that he reads. So if the truth becomes clear to him, then the praise is for Allaah. And if not, then he should leave the people alone and not attack them with these manners which do not bring about any benefit. And the last thing that the people of al-Madeenah wrote, the last thing that they wrote was that if Abul-Hasan does not recant from his errors and his innovations, then it is obligatory to boycott him and to not take lessons from him and to not listen to his lectures. This was the last thing that the Scholars of al-Madeenah wrote. So what will Aboo Usaamah say now? Why does he concentrate upon Shaykh Rabee’? Clarify this to him. The last thing that was written by ‘Ubayd al-Jaabiree, and as-Suhaymee and Muhammad Ibn Haadee al-Madkhalee, the last thing they wrote was that if Abul-Hasan does not recant from his well known errors and his innovations with which he has opposed the manhaj of Ahlul-Haqq, then he will be boycotted by the people of knowledge, and his lessons will be prohibited and knowledge will not be accepted from him. So this clarification is sufficient. So how can one say that he is waiting for the people of al-Madeenah? This is what the Scholars of al-Madeenah have said. And it is upon him to ask ‘Ubayd al-Jaabiree, Muhammad Ibn Haadee al-Madkhalee and Saalih as-Suhaymee.”  [Source:
