Statements of the Salafi Scholars against ISIS [The Khawaarij of Syria and Iraq]

Our Salaf: Eagerness for acquiring understanding of the similitudes in the Qur’aan

Allaah (The Most High) said:

وَتِلۡكَ ٱلۡأَمۡثَـٰلُ نَضۡرِبُهَا لِلنَّاسِ‌ۖ وَمَا يَعۡقِلُهَآ إِلَّا ٱلۡعَـٰلِمُونَ

”And these similitudes We put forward for mankind, but none will understand them except those who have knowledge (of Allah and His Signs, etc.)” [29:43]

Imaam Ibnul Qayyim (rahimahullaah) said: ”When some of the Salaf used to come across a similitude (in the Qur’aan) and could not understand it, they would weep and say: ”I am not from those who have knowledge.”


[Miftaah Daarus Sa’aadah 1/51]

Are you grateful?

Allaah (The Most High) said:

وَلَوۡلَا فَضۡلُ ٱللَّهِ عَلَيۡكُمۡ وَرَحۡمَتُهُ ۥ مَا زَكَىٰ مِنكُم مِّنۡ أَحَدٍ أَبَدً۬ا وَلَـٰكِنَّ ٱللَّهَ يُزَكِّى مَن يَشَآءُ‌ۗ وَٱللَّهُ سَمِيعٌ عَلِيمٌ۬

”And had it not been for the Grace of Allah and His Mercy on you, not one of you would ever have been pure from sins. But Allah purifies (guides to Islam) whom He wills, and Allah is All-Hearer, All-Knower.” [24:21]

This statement of Maalik Ibn Deenaar should be a reminder for those who speak with falsehood against the Scholars

 Maalik Ibn Deenaar (rahimahullaah) said:

”It is enough evil for a man that he is not righteous, yet he speaks ill of the righteous people.”


[Shu’aab Al-Imaan (5/316)]

How can Shaikh say that such and such is deviated, whilst he opposes the Soofees etc- A statement of some of the Hizbiyyoon aimed at sheltering their deviant figureheads of Tamyee and Bidah

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

Imaam Barbahaaree (rahimahullaah) said: ‘It is not permitted for a man to say, ‘So and so is a person of the sunnah’ until he knows that he combines the characteristics of the Sunnah, so it is not said of him, ‘a person of the Sunnah’ until he combines all the Sunnah.'[1]

Shaikh Saaleh Al-Fawzaan (hafidha-hullaah) commented on the above statement of Imaam Barbahaaree saying:

Do not give recommended to a person and a praise of him, except based on knowledge, lest the people become deceived by your praise of him, whilst he is not what (you have stated about him).  So when his real affair and path is clear to you, his knowledge and steadfastness; then you can give him recommendation. As for giving out praise and recommendation whilst not knowing of anything about him, then this is a dangerous recommendation through which the people will be deceived by this person.

Had only those who give commendations to the people stopped at that (i.e. put it in its proper place), then they would not give recommendation, except for one who fulfils the conditions of (receiving) recommendation because recommendation is a ‘Witness’; so, if the recommendation is not correct it will be a false witness.

And concerning the statement of Imaam Barbahaaree: ‘until he knows that he combines the characteristics of the Sunnah’ Shaikh Saaleh Al-Fawzaan commented on the above statement saying: The characteristics of the Sunnah are to be in Aqeedah, Knowledge and adherence to the Salafus Saaleh.  But if there is not in him except a single characteristic of the (sunnah), then he is not judged to be from Ahlus Sunnah on the basis of a single characteristic or one thing, so what about the one who does not have anything from that? [End of quote: It-haaful Qaaree Bitta’liqaat Alaa Sharhis Sunnah Lil Imaam Barbahaaree, Vol: 2, page:275-276]

So be mindful of those who utilise these foolish statements in order to hide the other deviations and innovations of their figureheads. Likewise, be distant from the obstinate blind followers—those who carry the slogan of Ikhtilaaf, whilst intending falsehood by way of it and to reject the clear unambiguous knowledge based refutations of the scholars against the figureheads of hizbiyyah, bidah and Tamyee.

The Correct stance towards the differing of the scholars concerning

Jarh and Tadeel-Shaikh Ubaid (may Allaah preserve him)

[Fitan (Trials and Tribulations)- O Masjid Al-Furqaan’s Admin! Shaikh Rabee Reminds Us Why the Fitnah of Sayyid Qutb is the Greatest Fitna of the Era?!]

Al-Allaamah Rabee Bin Haadi Al-Madkhali (may Allaah preserve him) said:

”Indeed, the Fitnah of this man (i.e. Sayyid Qutb) and those with him is the Fitnah of this era. It is the severest fitnah in this era because it (falsely) wears the garb of the Salafi Methodology (i.e. falsely attributes itself to Salafiyyah).” [End of Quote-[الذريعة إلى بيان مقاصد كتاب الشريعة Vol 1. Page: 112]

O Masjid Al-Furqaan’s Admin! So what are the books of Sayyid Qutb doing on your shelves?!

O Masjid Al-Furqaan’s Admin! Why are you deceiving your congregation and exposing them to the books of this khariji?! Imaam Fudayl Ibn Iyaad (rahimahullaah) said: ”Whoever is approached by a man and he directs him to a Mubtadi, has acted with deception towards Islaam.  Be mindful of entering upon the people of innovation, for indeed they prevent from the haqq.”

O Masjid Al-Furqaan’s Admin! Why are you exposing your congregation to the books of the Imaam, mentor and spiritual guide of the contemporary khawaarij, Takfeeris and terrorists?! Why are you exposing your congregation to the books of the reviver of the Major innovations?! Al-Allaamah Rabee Bin Haadi (may Allaah preserve him) said:

”We say: Yes, he (Sayyid Qutb) is a reviver; rather he is a reviver of every major bidah, (such as) the school of thought of the khawaarij, the rawaafid (shiites), the murji’ah, the jabariyyah and the soofiyyah. He revived all of them, and between us (Salafis) and them (i.e. the followers of Sayyid Qutb) are the books of Sayyid Qutb and his writings (as a witness).

 Fear Allaah



Muhammad Ibn Ubaid At-Tannaafusiy: He used to say to Ahlul hadeeth…

Muhammad Ibn Ubaid At-Tannaafusiy (rahimahullaah) used to say to the people of hadeeth: “Why do not be like Eesa Ibn Yunus (rahimahullaah)? When he (Eesa) used to meet Al’Amash (rahimahullaah), whilst the youth and the Shuyookh were with him, they used to look at his (upright) conduct and manners.


[Al-Aadaab Ash-Shar-iyyah 2/255]


Our Salaf: Ibraaheem Ibn Habeeb

Ibraaheem Ibn Habeeb Ibn Ash-Shaheed (rahimahullaah) said: ”My father said to me: O my son! Go to the jurists and the scholars. Learn from them and take from their (good) etiquettes, (good) manners and (upright) guidance. Indeed that would be more beloved to me than if you were to narrate numerous hadeeth.
