All praise be to Allaah and the salaah and salaam be upon our Prophet Muhammad (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam), his family and companions. To proceed:
The defenders of Maribi, Halabi and Maghraawi At Masjid As-Sunnah Present Their False Accusations To Their Noble Shaikh Muhammad Al-Maliki
They said: O noble Shaikh! There is a person who regularly posts on websites; his articles contain spreading of discord, warning and qeel wal qaal, backbiting and slandering of salafi brothers and sisters. Many of his statements are his opinions that contain excessiveness and ignorance. On these websites he accuses Masaajid of Ahlus Sunnah of being Masaajid of hizbiyyah and innovation. And anyone who affiliates with these Masaajid is also an innovator and hizbi. He would use general statements of the scholars and specify Masjids of Ahlus Sunnah of innovation and misguidance, particularly Masjid As-Sunnah, Makki Masjid, and Masjid Al-Furqaan. He also goes to the extent of accusing the scholars who attended these Masjids of being ignorant of the affairs of the Manhaj and are supporters of hizbiyyah and misguidance, mainly Shaikh Waseeyullaah Abbaas, Shaikh Abdul Azeez Sadhaan and others, who have held talks at these Masjids. What is your view of him O Noble Shaikh, or what is your advice regarding this individual, bearing in mind that he is not known to have studied from the Ulama neither is he a Taalibul Ilm, but constantly feels that his opinions and his duty is to declare the salafis and ahlus Sunnah to be innovators and hizbi.”
Firstly: We ask Muhammad Al-Maliki: Did you solely depend on the false accusations presented to you in the above question, or did you realize that you were deceived after returning to Saudi; however you refused to return to reality?! Indeed, whether you accept your faults or continue upon denial and persist in your false defense of the followers of Maribi, Halabi and Maghraawi at Masjid As-Sunnah, the fact remains that you spoke without tangible evidence. There are neither articles on Salafitalk.net and Salaficentre.com to establish the accusations of the Maribi/Maghraawi/Halabi supporters at Masjid As-Sunnah (Cheethamhill-Manchester) nor was a single tangible evidence and website link quoted by yourself in support of that. Therefore is it not the case that you spoke without evidence?! Is this the methodology of the Salafi Scholars and their students or that of the people of oppression and excess?!
Shaikh Raslaan (may Allaah preserve him) said:
”It is incumbent upon (a person) to be acquainted with what he criticizes and what he is not to criticize, and to make a distinction between what he commends and what he is not to commend; and if not, then there will be involvement in disparaging (one) who is not to be disparaged or praising without a right reason. And indeed Al-Haafidh Ibn Hajr (rahimahullaah) summarized this (affair) in his statement:
‘’Recommendation is accepted from the one who is acquainted with its reasons and not from the one who is not acquainted with it; so that he (i.e. a person) may not give a recommendation solely based on what is apparent in the beginning without pursuing (the affair practically) and without examination. Likewise, it is obligatory that disparagement and commendation are not accepted except from a person who is trustworthy and cautious. And disparagement is not accepted from one who exceeds the limits in it, such that he disparages with what does not necessitate rejection of the narration of a Muhaddith, just as (recommendation) is not accepted from the one who solely holds on to the apparent (affair of a person) and then gives a commendation.” [Source:Dawaabit At-Tabdee: page: 61-62]
Secondly: Yaa Muhammad! Compare the false, weak, blameworthy and haphazard manner in which you disparage and the manner in which the Salafi Maraakiz present their evidences. See the following links:

Therefore, Yaa Muhammad! Where are the website links in which one can find the accusations presented to you by the defenders of the innovators (Maribi, Halabi and Maghraawi) at Masjid-As-Sunnah-Cheethamhill-Manchester)?! They have to produce all such website-links in which are found all those specific accusations found in the above question. (Note: all such website links when clicked should direct the reader to the websites (Salafitalk.net and salaficentre.com showing exactly the validity of your accusations, and not what is cut and pasted). Indeed, neither the followers of Maribi, Maghraawi and Halabi nor yourself have provided a single link from those websites about which you claim contained your evidences. Rather the followers of Maribi, Maghraawi and Halabi acted deceitfully in the name of enjoining good and forbidding evil, and in the name of defending and concealing their alliances with those whom our scholars have declared innovators with clear evidences.
Shaikh Saaleh Al-Fawzaan was asked:
”Is lying permissible in calling to Allaah? And is ‘the goal justifies the means’ a maslahah (benefit) from the masaalih (beneficial affairs) of the Sharee’ah?”
Lying is not permissible. It is a major sin from the major sins. It (lying) is not permissible except in three affairs which the prophet made an exception: (a) lying during war, because war is deceit; (b) lying in order to bring about peace between the people; (c) lying between married couples in order to bring about rectification in the family with regards to the relationship between (husband and the wife). These three affairs are that of maslahah and in them is a greater good than evil; so (lying) is permissible (in this case). As for calling to Allaah, it has no need for lies. It is not permissible to utilize lies in calling to Allaah. Calling to Allaah is to (be carried out) by way of truth, the Book, the Sunnah, fine admonition and arguing in a way that is better and not by way of lies.” [Source: Al-ijaabatul Muhimmah Fee Mashaakil Al-Mulimmah, page:271-272]
Therefore, Yaa Muhammad! Is it not incumbent upon the defenders of Maribi, Maghraawi and Halabi at Masjid As-Sunnah to accept that they lied and fabricated?! Is it not incumbent upon you (Muhammad Al-Maliki) to free yourself from their lies and fabrications?! Indeed, returning to the truth is a virtue, but there are obstacles that prevent a person from returning to the truth. We ask Allaah to remove all the obstacles that prevents a person from returning to correctness. See link:
