Three Unrepentant Liars [Abu Usaamah, Al-Arifi (a Comrade of the Deceiver Aasim Al-Hakeem) and Zakir Naik]

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

The reality of lying is to give news of something in opposition to the true state of affairs. This transmission of news is not limited to speech, rather it can be through action, such as making an indication with one’s hand or nodding one’s head and it can be through silence.

It is said that the liar is a thief, because the thief deceives you with regards to your wealth and the liar deceives you with regards to your intellect. [Adabud Dunyaa Wal-Deen page: 262]

Indeed, these three liars have not given news in opposition to the real state of affairs due to a mistake or forgetfulness; rather they deliberately lied in order to support their deviated methodologies. They persist upon their lies and are too proud to repent after it has become manifestly clear to them that they are guilty of lying and slander. This lying and slander employed against the Salafiyyoon –by these three deviants and those similar to them– is founded upon malice, deceit, deviation and unfounded evil suspicion towards the people of truth and Salafiyyah.    Al-Allaamah Rabee Bin Haadee Al-Madkhalee (may Allaah preserve him) stated:

”Destructive Good Suspicion is to have a good suspicion of the people of falsehood whether are they disbelievers, innovators or evil (open) sinners. And that which led the disbelievers to belie the Messengers, (harbouring) a severe disbelief in them and their message was due to their evil suspicion towards the people of truth (i.e. the Prophets and their true followers), and having a good suspicion of their forefathers and their religions of falsehood and disbelief.

Ahlul Bidah such as the rawaafid, the khawaarij, the soofiyyah, the murji-a, the qadariyyah and the people of Tahazzub Al-Baatil (false partisanship) are destroyed by good suspicion towards their shuyookh, figureheads and corrupt creeds. On the other hand, they are destroyed by their evil suspicions towards the truth and its people.  [Paraphrased and Abridged: For further details see: [Majmoo Fataawaa Al-Allaamah Rabee: 13/363-364]

Abu Usaama [2012]

On the 25th July 2012, Abu Usaamah gave a video-recorded lecture in which he claimed that he was giving ‘Sincere Advice’.  He claimed that Ustaadh Abu Khadeejah utilised the speech of Imaam Albaanee (rahimahullaah) in a deceitful manner in order to show that Abdur-Rahman Abdul-Khaaliq is an innovator.

This lie became ever more serious when one realizes (as is apparent from the video) that Abu Usamah was holding a printed copy of the blog post in front of his face for most of the lecture, yet he never once read where Ustaadh Abu Khadeejah had said that Shaikh al-Albaanee (rahimahullaah) had made tabdee’ on Abdur-Rahmaan Abdul-Khaaliq or even implied it. In a whole hour and more, not once did Abu Usaamah read this alleged assertion of Abu Khadeejah?

Abu Usaamah stated that he had a copy of Ustaadh Abu Khadeejah’ saved “in case it is taken down”! In that post Ustaadh Abu Khadeejah stated: ”Abdur-Rahmaan Abdul-Khaaliq is the leading figurehead of the group Ihyaa Turaath of Kuwait – he was refuted by numerous major scholars, including the Shaykh, the Muhaddith and Imaam Al-Albaanee (rahimhullaah). He was declared an innovator by the Imaam of Yemen Muqbil bin Haadee (rahimahullaah).”

So Ustaadh Abu Khadeejah clearly made a careful distinction between the refutation of al-Albaanee and the tabdee’ of Shaikh Muqbil (rahimahumallaah), which Abu Usaamah failed to make mention of throughout his hour long rant…… [Abridged and paraphrased For further details, see:]
