Points from Shaikh Ubiad’s Response:
*The utterer of this statement is overwhelmed by the proofs…..
*This statement is one of his falsehoods…
*The principle with Ahlul Ilm (i.e. the scholars of Ahlus Sunnah) is that the one who allies with ahlul bidah- neither bringing them to account nor aiding those who confront them, then he is from them even if he-in the apparent-is one who shows righteousness and acts upon some of the sunnah. This does not free him from falling into bidah….
*We have spoken against Ihyaa Turaath in many places…..
*Ihyaa Turaath is among (or within) the Ikhwaan Al-Muslimeen sect…..
