Question: Brixton Masjid Admin and Staunch Affiliates –[Halabiyyoon]—which group do you belong to?!
بِسْمِ اللَّهِ الرَّحْمَٰنِ الرَّحِيمِ
Al-Allaamah Zayd Bin Haadi (may Allaah preserve him) said:
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 harbour 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.
