Shaikh Ubaid (may Allaah preserve him) comments on Saalim At-Taweel’s statement that At-Tahazzub (illegal partisanship) is present in the Nufoos of all the people and even Asabiyyah (zealous partisanship) was present within the Sahaabah….
Shaikh Ubaid stated:
*He has known the utterer of this statement for nearly 21 years and he is from Kuwait. …
*He used to be with the (salafiyyoon) and then he complied with what deviated him…
*If he wished he would have mentioned his name…
The statement that At-tahazzub (illegal partisanship) is present in all the people is incorrect because Ahlus Sunnah are the Hizbullaah (The party of Allaah)-they do not come together except based on the Book of Allaah, the Sunnah of the Messenger (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam) and the understanding of the Salaf; rather At-Tahazzub (illegal partisanship) is found with the innovators. For instance you find that sometimes a man is one who intermingles—sometimes he goes with Ikhwaan al-Muslimeen; sometimes with the Tableeghees and sometimes with other deviated groups regardless of the differing in the religion (i.e. blameworthy differing in Aqeedah and Manhaj)….
The sahaabah are not Ahzaab [i.e. divergent parties or groups]; rather they are Al-Muhaajiroon (i.e. the believers who migrated from Makkah and joined the Prophet (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam) in Madeenah] and Al-Ansaar (i.e. those believers in Madeenah who welcomed the Immigrants]…..
This statement which was uttered by this man-a Miskeen; misguided and lost one- is evidence against the people of illegal partisanship and the illegal partisans are Mubtadia. They do not come together except based on what they desire…..
Excuse us for this summary due to lack of time. Perhaps brothers can work on the full translation and share it. Jazaakumullaahu khayran. May Allaah (The Most High) guide Saalim At-Taweel and his companions (Ruhayli, Halabi etc) or protect us from their falsehood. Aameen.
