[1] The Devil’s Deception of Anjem Choudary and the Qa-adiyyah of the Era

In The Name of Allaah, The Most Merciful, The Bestower of Mercy

Imaam Ibn Rajab (rahimahullaah) said: [  أما أهل البدع والضلالة ومن تشبه بالعلماء وليس منهم فيجوز بيان جهلهم وإظهار عيوبهم تحذيرا من الاقتداء بهم  -As for ahlul bidah wad-dalaalah (the people of innovation and misguidance) and those who imitate the scholars, but are not from them, then it is permissible to clarify their ignorance and manifest their dificiencies, so as to warn (others) from following them.

Anjem Choudary’s Predecessors in satanic Insinuations and Destructive Religious Innovations

Indeed, the khawaarij of old were called ‘Al-Harooriyyah’ because they started their bidah of rebellion against the Muslim rulers at a place called Haroora in Koofah. They were also called ‘Ahlu An-Nahrawaan’ (The people of Nahrawaan) because Ali (radiyallaahu-anhu) fought them at that place. They are divided into different groupings:

  • The Ibaadiyyah-followers of Abdullaah Bin Ibaad
  • The Al-Azaariqah-the followers of Naafi Bin Azraq and others

[For further details see: Sharh Hadeethu Jibreel of Shaikhul Islaam Ibn Taymiyyah: Page 319].

And amongst these groups are the ‘Khawaarij Qa-adiyyah’ and they are the most dangerous amongst the khawaarij. The Qa-adiyyah are those who do not go out in person to fight and cause corruption, rather they sit behind and convince the people to do so. Imaam Abu Daawud (rahimahullaah) reported in Masaa-il Ahmad [page: 271] from Abdullaah Ibn Muhammad As-Suhaib that he said:

‘The sitters amongst the khawaarij (i.e. the Qa-adiyyah–those who instigate the fighting but do not actually participate) are the filthiest of the khawaarij.

Some of the contemporary Qa-adiyyah groups

  • Hizb Tahreer
  • The Surooriyyah-followers of Muhammad Suroor
  • The Qutubiyyah- followers of Sayyid Qutb
