A Response to the Deceit of Abu Usaamah Khalifah and His Lying Tongue– Salafipublications

Tameem Ad-Daari (radiyallaahu-anhu) reported that the Messenger of Allaah (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam) said: ”Indeed, the religion is Naseehah, the religion is Naseehah, the religion is Naseehah; they said: To who O Messenger of Allaah? He said: ‘’To Allaah, His Messenger, to the leaders of the Muslims and their common people.”[Reported by Muslim]

Al-Allaamah Saaleh Al-Fawzaan (may Allaah preserve him) said:

The meaning of ‘Naseehah’ is Al-Khuloos (purity). It is said that something is ‘Naasih’ meaning: It is free from deceit. And it is said: ‘A-sa-lun Naasihun’ (Pure Honey), ‘La-ba-nun Naasihun (Pure Milk), meaning: Free from deceit and bad mixtures. This is how it is (with regards) to the religion of Islaam, for indeed it is free from every falsehood and from every deception, cheating and treachery. It is a pure religion (and) an unadulterated religion.

Likewise, the Muslim’s apparent (affairs) are the same as his hidden (affairs), upon purity and safe from evil manners, treachery, betrayal and other than that. As for the one who cheats, deceives and plots, or his apparent (affairs) are in opposition to his hidden (affairs), this trait is not from the Religion. The Prophet (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam) confined the religion within (Naseehah –purity-sincerity), and the confinement of something necessitates that something else cannot enter into it. [For Further details see: Minhatur-Rabbaaniyyah Fee Sharhi Ar-ba’een An-Nawawiyyah: page: 112].

Do you cry, whilst he was Shaheed (Inshaa-Allaah)?!

One of the sons of the pious people’s was killed in Jihaad, so he (the pious man) weeped. Then it was said to him, ”You weep, whilst he was shaheed (inshaa-Allaah)?” He said: ”Rather I weep (thinking) how he was with regards to being pleased with the decree of Allaah when he was struck by the sword” [Ath-thabaat Indal Mamaat’ of Ibnul Jawzee: page:24]

Our Salaf–Wakee Ibnul Jarraah

Narrated Yahyah Ibn Athram (rahimahullaah) who said:

I have accompanied Wakee (rahimahullaah) whilst being resident and during journeys, and he used to fast constantly and finish recitation of the Qur’aan every night. [Siyar A’laam Nubulaa: 9/142]


Yahya Bin Ayyoub (rahimahullaah) said:

It was reported to me by some of the companions of Wakee (rahimahullaah) who used to be with him that Wakee would not sleep until he read one third of the Qur’aan every night. Then he would wake up in the last third of the night and read the Mufassal of the Qur’aan (i.e. from Soorah Qaaf to Soorah An-Naas); then he would sit and sought the forgiveness of Allaah until fajr approached. [Siyar A’laam Nubulaa: 9/148-149]





Correcting the statement “We Correct the People of Innovation but don’t Disparage Them”- Shaykh Bin Baaz & Others

Many people who wish to blur the lines between the people of sunnah and people of bid’ah (innovation and misguidance) make the statement “We should correct the people of innovation and desires only. We shouldn’t be too harsh, revile, boycott or criticism them.”

They intend by this, that the person of Sunnah lowers his guard against innovation, making them susceptible to absorbing doubts and innovation and corrupting his religion. Below are a few statements from the scholars addressing this doubt.

Salafi Centre

Shaykh Ibn Baz (rahimahullaah):

 “Indeed, criticism from the scholars and disparagement of him whose disparagement is obligatory is from the angle of sincere advice to the Ummah, and warning from his innovation or his deviation is a designated matter, just as the scholars of Islaam have done previously and continue to do so…”

Shaykh Ibn Uthaymeen (rahimahullaah) was asked regarding the errors of Ahl al-Bid’ah, “We correct but do not disparage”, so he replied,

 “This is an error, rather we disparage the one who is stubborn against the truth.” And he said, “When the opposition is in the issues of belief, then it is obligatory for it to be corrected, and whatever is in opposition to the way of the Salaf, then it is obligatory to show rejection against it and to warn against the one who traverses upon that which opposes the way of the Salaf in this field.”

Shaykh al-Fawzan (hafidhahullaah) was asked about the principle, “We correct but do not disparage”, he responded,

“This principle has no basis, I say this principle has no foundation, it is binding to disparage the people of falsehood.”

And he was asked about the principle, “It is permissible to declare as erroneous but is unlawful to revile.”

So he responded,

 “This is just like (the principle) “we correct but do not disparage, it is the very same!”

Shaykh Zayd al-Madkhalee (hafidhahullaah) was asked about the principle, “We correct but do not disparage”, he responded,

“This principle is not from the principles of the Rabbaani Scholars, those whose knowledge is relied upon. Rather, the principles of the Scholars knowledgeable of the purified legislation of Allah, both previously and in what continues is correction of that which is deserving of correction and appraisal of the one who is deserving of appraisal and disparagement of the one is deserving of disparagement in lit of the principles connected to this serious topic. This is what Ahl as-Sunnah wal-Jamaa’ah, the Righteous Salaf and their followers traverse upon until the Day of Judgement, and the books of al-Jarh wat-Ta’deel are not remote for (our) minds. Further, this principle contains deception of those whose knowledge of the legislation and its avenues is scant… And this is an error and the person in question is either ignorant, so it is obligatory to seek knowledge truthfully or he is a deceiver and one who is misguided the people, so Allaah is sufficient (over him) and we ask Allaah to guide him and return him to the truth with a beautiful return, aameen.”

Manhaj Q & A with Shaykh Muqbil

“There are those who say that accepting the statements of the scholars regarding the people is considered blind following, so what is the validity of this statement?”

Does Fasting Bring Benefits for the Society? – Shaykh Al-Uthaymeen


Yes, it has societal benefits; and from them is that the people are made aware that they are one Ummah. They eat and fast at the same time; the wealthy are made aware of Allaah’s blessings and they give to the poor. The (treacherous plots) of shaytaan diminish and there is fear of Allaah in it (i.e. by obeying His commands and keeping away from what He has forbidden), and fear of Allaah strengthens the ties between individuals of a society.

[Fiqhul Ibaadaat of Imaam Muhammad Bin Saaleh Al-Uthaymeen: page: 233..Abridged and slightly paraphrased ]

It may be that a fasting person’s share of the fast is nothing else but……

Abu Hurairah (radiyallaahu-anhu) narrated that the Prophet (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam) said: ”It may be that a fasting person’s share of the fasting is nothing else but hunger and thirst.” [Imaam Ibn Maajah: 1690; Imaam Ahmad: 8639 and declared authentic by Imaam Albaanee in Saheeh Al-Jaami 3488, 3490]


Imaam Ibnul Qayyim (rahimahullaah) said:

Fasting is abstinence of the limbs from sins and abstinence of the stomach from food and drink. And just as food and drink nullifies and corrupts the fasting, likewise sins curtail its reward and corrupt its fruits, so it leads him (i.e. the person) to the position of one who has not fasted. [Sharh Waabilus Sayyib of Imaam Abdul Azeez Bin Baaz, (rahimahullaah), page: 32]


Look At How Abu Usaamah–The Greenlane Khateeb of Desires– Started In 2002

Shaikhul Islaam Ibn Taymiyyah (rahimahullaah):

The legislated affairs of Islaam are nourishments of the hearts; and when the hearts are nourished with innovation, giving more virtue/excellence to the Sunan does not remain in them, so they come to be in the position of one who nourishes (himself) with filth. [Iqtidaa Siraat Al-Mustaqeem: 1/281]


Abdul Azeez Bin Rabee (rahimahullaah) said:

Ataa (rahimahullaah) was asked about something, so he said: ”I don’t know.” He (Abdul Azeez) said, (then) it was said to him (i.e. Ataa), ”Do you not speak about it with your own opinion?” He (Ataa) said: I feel shy of Allaah (The Mighty and Majestic) to be (slave and worshipper) in the earth with my opinion/s. [Reported by Imaam Daarimee in his sunan: 1/108]


Look at how Abu Usaamah -The Greenlane Khateeb of Desires– Started in 2002


The article in the above link is a detailed clarification of the falsehood of abu usaamah’s stances in the early days and his defence of the innovator Abul Hasan al-Maribi; also in the article Faaleh al Harbi is mentioned as one of the main defenders of the correct salafi positions, but the reader must be informed that Faaleh deviated thereafter and traversed the methodology of the extremist haddaadiyyah, so the scholars refuted him.
