In The Name of Allaah, The Most Merciful, The Bestower of Mercy
Shaikh Abdullaah Al-Bukhaari (may Allaah preserve him) stated recently about the followers of Hajoori Al-Mubtadi: These people are of two types, one who is ignorant of the deviations of al-Hajuri, so he is taught and reminded or the one who knows of his deviations, has been informed of them, but he defends him so is thrown alongside him…. [End of quote: Translated by Ustaadh Amjad Rafiq (may Allaah preserve him)]
This statement of Shaikh Abdullaah Al-Bukhaari is a specific ruling regarding the circumstances of the UK followers and defenders of Al-Hajoori Al-Haddaadi Al-Mubtadi; likewise we find the Shaikh’s teachers amongst the Scholars making similar but general statements regarding innovators and their followers. Al-Allaamah Zaid Bin Hadee Al-Madkhalee (may Allaah preserve him) stated:
Indeed Ahlus Sunnah are people who possess fear of Allaah– they neither make Takfeer, Tafseeq (i.e. declare a person a sinner) and Tabdee (declare a person an innovator) except against the one who deserves it based on the evidences in the Book and the Sunnah and the understanding of the pious predecessors of this Ummah.
Secondly, you should know: The people of desires and misguidance are (categorized into) those who are followed and those who follow; indeed, those followed are the ones who set up the various principles of innovation and they call to their innovation and misguidance, and they will carry their burden of sins and the burden of the sins of those whom they misguided without knowledge, as it is clearly stated in the Qur’aan and the Sunnah. As for the followers of a leader from amongst the people of desires, then in most cases they are of two categories:
The First Category:
Those who possess knowledge, but they harbor evil intentions. So they yield to Satan, desires and the urge of the evil soul. They follow the people of misguidance and oppose the callers to guidance (in that which) Allaah sent His Messenger Muhammad (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam) with.
The Second Category:
Their share of knowledge is little, so the people of desires take advantage of them and they become (part) of their group. They convince them that what they call them to is the manifest truth and that what their opponents are upon is falsehood. And they convey to them a huge (number) of affairs that resemble the truth but are falsehood in reality, in order to deceive them and submerge them into misguidance.

Indeed, those who are neither afflicted with confusion nor fanaticism know that the scholars have clarified Hajoori’s evil state of affairs—some have warned against his dangerous mistakes, some have warned against his vile street language, some have warned against his lies and contradictions and some have warned against his extremism and recklessness. However, despite the clear warnings of the scholars– based on the dangerous errors and extremist stances found in his tapes– such as the likes of Shaikh Rabee, Shaikh Ubaid, Shaikh Muhammad Bin Haadee, Shaikh Abdullaah Al-Bukhaari, Shaikh Muhammad Bin Abdul Wahhaab Al-Wasabi etc, the leading Email Shaykh- Hajoori-Fanatic of Manchester still hides behind a computer and sends emails whose contents are filled with nothing more than fanaticism, ignorance and emotional nonsense. He cannot come to terms with the fact that his Haddaadi Mubtadi Shaikh has not offered any sound fundamental principles to justify his positions; rather he only offers empty talk, quackery, vagueness, cover up, agitation, arrogance and rage. This is the reality of the affair; however this particular deluded and self-amazed flag bearer of Hajoori fanaticism seeks to argue with falsehood and emotional nonsense. Indeed, this behaviour is not befitting a man over the age of forty.
Therefore, it must be made known without any ambiguities that the nonsense and fanaticism he displays whilst attacking the students of knowledge, the Salafi centres and some of the Mashaayikh will not be tolerated anymore. This is what every sensible person expects from us. Finally, we remind this Email Shaykh-Hajoori Fanatic that his Haddaadi Mubtadi Shaikh is the cause of the spitting and chaos. Shaikh Zaid Bin Haadee Al-Madkhalee (may Allaah preserve him) said:
“The innovator is the cause for splitting; because splitting is connected to innovation and unity is connected to the Sunnah. The obligation of refuting the Mukhaalif is not lifted from the scholar due to anticipation of harm, unless it is harm he is not able to bear. Then (in this case), Allah does not burden a soul beyond what it can bear. The earth is not devoid of people of knowledge who will carry out refutation against the Mubtadi and the Mukhaalif.” [Al Ajwibah Al Mukhtasar Alaa As-ila Al-Ashrati (Pgs. 43-44)]
We ask Allaah to guide this individual or protect us from his foolishness, delusion, self-amazement and arrogance.
