Imaam Fudayl Ibn Iyaad (rahimahullaah) said:
‘’Had the man of bidah 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]
Question To Al-Allaamah Ahmad Bin Yahyah An-Najmi (rahimahullaah)
“O Shaykh Ahmad we have with us in America a man called Abu Usaamah who is considered to be from the Du’aat, he aids and supports Abul-Hasan and he calls some noble Salafi brothers ghulaat (extremists), muqallidah (blind followers),and muhqiboon (the people whose religion is the religion of the one they blindly follow), so what is the legislated position from this man and how should we deal with him?
The noble Scholar (rahimahullaah) answered:
“Your position with him is the same as your position with the People of Innovation. Turn away from him and abandon him.”
When Abu Usaamah was abandoned, as all deviants pretending to have aql ought to be, it was only a short while later that he turned up on the shores and green pastures of Britain to play the field. This history and reality is hidden to many of those who are delighted to hear the falsehood of Abu Usaamah in his so called “sincere advice”.
