The Email Shaykh (1) – a follower of al Haajoori in manners, frenzy and irrationality.
بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم
We ask Allaah to guide us to all good deeds in this month of Ramadhaan. And we ask Allaah to forgive us our sins. Indeed, from among the acts of doing good is that you help your brother… whether he is the oppressor or the oppressed.
Narrated Anas bin Maalik (may Allah be pleased with him) Allah’s Messenger (may Allah’s peace be upon him) said, “Help your brother, whether he is an oppressor or he is an oppressed one. People asked, “O Allah’s Messenger! It is all right to help him if he is oppressed, but how should we help him if he is an oppressor?” The Prophet said, “By preventing him from oppressing others.” [Sahih Bukhari: Volume 3, Book 43, Number 624.]
From recent events here, then it seems clear to us that a man can be both at the same time!
In the narration of Abu Hurayrah (may Allah be pleased with him) that a man said to the Prophet, (may Allah’s peace be upon him): “Advise me!” The Prophet (may Allah’s peace be upon him) said, “Do not become angry.” The man asked (the same) again and again, and the Prophet said in each case, “Do not become angry.” [Al-Bukhari; Vol. 8 No. 137]
Blameworthy anger is one of those things that lead a person to oppression and evil acts. If we were to follow the advice of the Messenger (may Allah’s peace be upon him) and keep calm, then we would reject these acts, branding them as foolish and irrational behaviour. Shaikh Saaleh Al-Fawzaan (may Allaah preserve him) stated: ‘’There is not anyone amongst us except that he does get angry, but the sensible/rational person and the believer takes care of his anger and does not allow it to take effect (in a blameworthy manner). As for the idiot and the ignoramus, his anger leads him to blameworthy affairs, such as murder, wounding or evil speech, or severance of kinship ties. So anger drives a person towards destructive affairs unless if he utilises it in a good manner, in its appropriate place, then he will be safe from its evil. [For further details, see: Al-Minhatur Rabbaaniyyah Fee Sharhi Al-Arba’een An-Nawawiyyah. Page: 161]
We ask Allaah that he keeps us safe from such irrationality…..an irrationality born out of rage and frenzy, and a lack of desire to control oneself. The Messenger of Allah (may Allah’s peace be upon him) said: “The strong man is not the one who can overpower others (in wrestling); rather, the strong man is the one who controls himself when he gets angry.” (Reported by Ahmad, 2/236; the hadeeth is agreed upon) .
In his latest erratic correspondence, the bigoted senseless Email Shaykh attacks Al-Markaz -As Salafi. These frenzied attacks, born out anger have given rise to irrationality in speech, leading this delusional individual to further drown himself into the deeper depths of oppression against his own soul.
As we mentioned previously then lying to make fantasy into reality is the method used for attacking those who reject the innovations and calamities of Al-Hajoori. It is the same as the attacks as those on Shaykh Rabee’ from some of the unknown weak “1000 students” of al_Hajoori. Even though there is nothing to refute, these followers of al Hajoori make up scenarios in order to stir up tension between the salafiyyoon.
So once again we find ourselves scratching our heads at the absurd claim being bandied around, about a “takfeeri being invited to the masjid for Ruqya…” All once again an attempt, to defend his shaykh, Yahyah al Hajoori, against the knowledge based refutations against him.
What is worse though is that this has now led him to screaming for mubaahalah(1) “in the last ten nights of Ramadhan” with Al -Markas as Salafi? In his rage he states “I call you O liars of Cheetham hill along with all your associates, e.g. spubs… for Mubahallah, so that Allaah Almighty may curse me if I am lying or lied about you or I am following a hadadi or defending a hadadi”
So let us look at and analyse this crazy statement in detail. And this can serve as a warning to us from following our desires, dwelling in rage and abandoning the company of the Salafiyyoon.
First Absurd Statement
The deluded bigot said: “so that Allaah Almighty may curse me…” Then first and foremost O’ slave of Allah! Do not oppress yourself. Do you utter such speech in an attempt to prove your bravery! This is not bravery! This is foolishness… and it reminds us of Abu Usaama khaleefah Adh-dhahabi (even though he was playing tricks, attacking the Salafis and defending an innovator) when he said: “If I am lying may I die a Jew.”
Second Absurd Statement
“along with all your associates, e.g. spubs” – His bigotry, delusion and recklessness does not allow him to spare any of those brothers in the west, whether that is SPUBS or other than them, who have stood firm against the innovations and haddaadiyyah of Al-Hajoori.
Third Absurd Statement
Then the deluded bigot said: “Allah Almighty may curse me if… I am lying or lied about you” Subhaanallaah! Has he forgotten his written slander?! The slander that he has repeated over and over again in emails, then again in the latest email, about a takfeeri coming to al Markaz as Salafi in order to perform Ruqya for £50! Or has he convinced himself of an alternative reality… Has the anger led to such irrationality, foolishness and idiocy?!
Fourth Absurd Statement
Then the deluded bigot said: “Allah Almighty may curse me if… I am following a hadadi or defending a hadadi”
Shaykh Rabee bin Hadee said about Yahyah al Hajoori that he is “haddaadi”. Shaykh Ubaid al Jaabiree said about al Hajoori that he is an “innovator”. Shaikh Muhammad Bin Abdul Wahhaab Al-Wassabi said about Yahyah al Hajoori that he is an ”innovator.”It was not al Markaz as Salafi, that gave these judgements against Yahyah al Hajoori; yet we accepted them from the ulamaa.
But this deluded bigot cannot… And so he says “By Allaah Almighty and my Lord is my witness, I do not believe that Shaikh Yahyah is Maasoom, and I have told this to every salafi I speak to him or communicate with him by email from Damaj or elsewhere, but no one has yet provided us with evidences that Shaikh Yahyah is a Hadadi or innovator to be abandoned, until then, I will defend Shaikh Yahya, support Damaaj and at the first instance I will have I will go to Damaaj.”
He says this… all in the same email! So he is defending a haddaadi, following a haddaadi and defending an innovator… while at the same time invoking the curse of Allah upon himself for doing so!?!
So we ask: what is this reckless self-amazed email shaykh hoping to achieve?! Why all this lying and twisting… why all this blindness and delusion, recklessness and bigotry? Indeed, the Prophet (may Allah’s peace be upon him) 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 (may Allah’s peace be upon him). 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 judgment, there comes about an uncontrollable chaos and it then proceeds upon a path that has no halter, and 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]
The Messenger of Allah (may Allah’s peace be upon him): said “Whoever believes in Allah and the Last Day let him speak good or remain silent.” [Bukhari and Muslim]. Ibn Abdi Rabbihi (May Allah have Mercy Upon Him) said: “Choosing speech is more difficult than authorship, and indeed it is said: ‘The choice of a man is in harmony with his intellect.’” [Source: quoted by Shaikh Muhammad Bin Umar Saalim Baazmool in Manhajul Bahthi Al-Ilmiy Wa-Kitaabah Fee Uloom Ash-Sharee-ah: page:17]
So this deluded email shaykh, should remain silent because he has nothing good to say… Either he lies about fictitious events of ruqya and transgresses the bounds of Allah in speech; or he utters idiotic irrational statements through anger, about making mubaahalah, thereby oppressing and harming himself.
In reality this behaviour is no different from that of Yahyah al Hajoori about whom Shaykh Rabee said “all we witnessed up until today are lies, deception and extremism.”
It is following the same blanket method of Yahyah al Hajoori in attacking the Salafis, as Shaykh Rabee made clear: “They (Yahya and his followers) are waging a war against the Salafis and Salafiyaah, and the people of innovation are relaxing and watching.“
May Allaah rectify his affair and return him to correctness. He should abandon this reckless, slanderous and pathetic path he has adopted for himself, all in defence of a vile haddaadi mubtadi. This path will neither benefit him nor guard him from those diseases of the heart that leads bidah and evil desires. May Allah open his eyes, so that he abandons falsehood, and this destructive self-amazement and desires he is upon… indeed he is only helping Shaytaan against the Maraakiz of Sunnah in the UK.
1) This is the invoking of the curse of Allah upon the liars. As Allah states in Surat Ali-Imran Ayah 61: فَمَنْ حَاجَّكَ فِيهِ مِن بَعْدِ مَا جَاءَكَ مِنَ الْعِلْمِ فَقُلْ تَعَالَوْا نَدْعُ أَبْنَاءَنَا وَأَبْنَاءَكُمْ وَنِسَاءَنَا وَنِسَاءَكُمْ وَأَنفُسَنَا وَأَنفُسَكُمْ ثُمَّ نَبْتَهِلْ فَنَجْعَل لَّعْنَتَ اللَّـهِ عَلَى الْكَاذِبِينَ
Then whoever argues with you about it after [this] knowledge has come to you – say, “Come, let us call our sons and your sons, our women and your women, ourselves and yourselves, then supplicate earnestly [together] and invoke the curse of Allah upon the liars [among us].”
