Updated: Is he fulfilling the role of a trustworthy adviser after the death of Imaam Muqbil (rahimahullaah)?
In The Name of Allaah, The Most Merciful, The Bestower of Mercy
- What is Naseehah to the Muslims?
It is to guide them towards the beneficial things related to the affairs of their Aakhirah and the Dunyaa, and to aid them in that; guide them towards rectification in affairs related to their dunyah and aakhirah; love them for the sake of Allaah, aid them in truth, co-operate with them in goodness and guidance and not in sin and transgression; clarify the truth for them and advise them with it, and disapprove evil from them if they violate Allaah’s Rights….etc a
Teach them what they are ignorant of in their religion and to aid them upon that through speech and action; repel harm from them and seek what is beneficial for them; command them with good and forbid them from evil with softness and sincerity and be compassionate towards them; respect their elder ones and have mercy on their young ones; speak to them with beautiful admonition and abandon deceiving and envying them; love for them what you love for yourself and hate for them what you hate for yourself; defend their wealth, honour and other than that through speech and action…..etc b]

Indeed all that has been witnessed by the scholars and the students is that Hajoori’s speech and behaviour is far removed from that of a good adviser as his fanatical supporters would have you believe. Rather very few Salafis have escaped his vulgar, extreme and irresponsible speech for the past seven years. In addition to foul speech, Al-Hajoori became amazed with himself, innovated and entered into the fold of Haddaadiyyah.
Indeed, the Prophet (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam) said: ”three things destroy: The greed that is obeyed, the desires that are followed and a person being amazed with his own opinion.” [Silsilah Al-hadeeth as-saheehah: Number: 1802: 4/412-416] Shaikh Raslaan (may Allaah preserve him) said: This (i.e. these three affairs) are never in harmony with a (person’s) complete return to the command of the Prophet (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam). The Shaikh also said: Indeed the great religion of Islaam is founded upon knowledge and not ignorance; but when a person is amazed with himself and his opinion, and when splitting occurs in the Ummah in the big affairs of knowledge and every foolish one formulates his own independent judgement; there comes about an uncontrollable chaos and it then proceeds upon a path that has no halter, and then it becomes an affair of trial, corruption, confusion and deviation, and an affair in which truth is confounded with falsehood…[End of quote] [For further details see: Ash-Shi-aaraat Wahdahaa Laa Takfee: pages: 35 and 39 Footnote 1]
Imaam Fudayl Ibn Iyaad (rahimahullaah) said: ”Had the innovator humbled himself to the Book of Allaah and the Sunnah of His Prophet, he would not have followed his innovation; but he is amazed with his views, so he follows what he invented. [Adh-Tadzkirah Fil Wadh: page: 97]
Fudayl Bin Iyaad (rahimahullaah) said: ”Whoever avoids five (things), then indeed he is protected from the evil of the dunyaa and the aakhira; (a) Self-amazement; (b) riyaa; (c) pride/arrogance; (d) power; (e) fame. [Hilyatul Awliyaa: 8/95]
Sa’eed Bin Ismaa’eel (rahimahullaah) said: ”Fear of Allaah leads you to the (path, obedience and pleasure etc.) of Allaah; self-amazement within your soul cuts you off from Allaah and belittlement of the people within your soul is a disease that does not heal.” [Shu’ab Al-Imaan: 10/494]
We ask Allaah for safety from being forsaken. Reminder: The Calamities of Al-Hajoori (may Allaah return him to the truth in a beautiful way).
