Imaam Muqbil and Imaam as San’aanee – Accepting the Jarh is NOT taqleed

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

السلام عليكم

The fanatical supporters of al-Hajoori are making many claims, regarding the Salafis who have taken the stance, and accept the criticism of Shaykh Rabee with regards to their Shaykh Yahya Hajoori.

When Shaykh Rabee’ said

‘Take the position of men with regards to him. He has harmed the people of Salafiyyah. There is no one more harmful than Yahya.’

Then it was clear that these attacks from his followers would come. They claim that those who carry his criticism, have made taqleed of Shaykh Rabee as they claim that al Hajoori is known for his Salafiyyah (by them) so the Jarh therefore does not apply.

Shaykh Muqbil -rahimahullah- said regarding this last point;

”So if a weak person speaks about an Imaam from amongst the Great Imams then his speech is not accepted,an example of that is the speech of Qardaawee about ash-Shaykh Ibn Baaz”

So the first question; Is Shaykh Rabee -hafidahullah- ‘a Weak person’? Shaykh Rabee’s position has been made clear and the following link will illustrate that they are only attempting to defend their own Shaykh and his mistakes, whilst attacking a mountain of knowledge:

Kibaar past and present on Shaykh Rabee

By contrast they raise al Hajoori, claiming that he is from the ”GREAT Imaams”… According to their delusions, and extreme love he is so much more…

Shaykh Rabee said

”Tell him (Yahyah) that he is only a student and not an Alim. He is not a sincere adviser; he is not an Imam of anything. Tell him that he is just a student; tell him to fear Allaah and to join his brothers hand in hand – his brothers of Ahlul Sunnah. Tell him to leave this extremism and evil behaviour.”

It seems very strange then that we have Al Imaam Muqbil, holding a position contrary to the claims of these defenders of al Haajori. However if we go further back we have the statements of Al Imaam as San’aanee, refuting the people of innovation of his time, who came with similar arguments and deception.

Will these individuals now claim that Imaam Muqbil and Imaam As San’aanee -rahimahumallah- were following and calling to the blameworthy methodology of Taqleed?!

Let us look again to the truth in Shaykh Rabee’s words -hafidahullah-

‘By Allaah, we have not seen this type of extremism from the people of innovation that we see from his students.’

‘They (Yahya and his followers) are waging a war against the Salafis and Salafiyaah,’

In truth this statement is becoming manifest in their statements every day…. People may try to hide but Allaah The Most High exposes them sooner or later.

Benefit from the following links and protect yourself with knowledge from the distortions and deceptions of the extremists from the followers of Yahyah, whom actually have the opportunity to either visit or ring Shaykh Rabee’ if they would like more details, yet they do not, rather they are attacking the Salafis for accepting the advice of the Shaykh.

We ask Allah the turner of the hearts to keep our hearts firm upon his religion and protect us from misguidance
