Mission Impossible or Impassable?! The Speaker said: [The believer is (كيِّس -Smart) and (فطِن – discerning) and Speaker also asked for a verdict from a Senior Scholar]; so we will utilise this advice as well as provide a verdict for him!!!
In The Name of Allaah, The Most Merciful, The Bestower of Mercy
The Speaker-whilst defending Greenlane’s Admin- asked the critics whether Greenlane has been warned against by the Major Scholars, such as the likes of Shaikh Bin Baaz, Shaikh Uthaymeen, the present Mufti of the Mamalaka or the Major scholars who have been appointed by the government to give fatwah in issues of the deen and in affairs related to murder etc The speaker then said that if the verdict has been given by the likes of these scholars, then we say: ‘’We hear and we obey.’’
Firstly: let us remind ourselves of this principle: [من علم حجة على من لا يعلم ] [The one who knows is a proof against the one who does not know]Shaikh Ubaid Bin Abdullaah Al-Jaabiri (may Allaah preserve him said: ”The one who knows of a mistake and it is clear to him, then it is not permissible for him to blindly follow a scholar to whom an affair is hidden.” http://salaficentre.com/2013/08/2-an-eye-opener-for-the-seeker-of-truth-alallaamah-ubaid-bin-abdillaah-al-jaabiri-answers/
Secondly: We ask the speaker: ”Is Shaikh Ahmad An-Najmi (rahimahullaah) not a Senior scholar who was appointed as the Mufti of the south of KSA?! Is Shaikh Ahmad An-Najmi (rahimahullaah) not qualified to give verdicts in affairs of the Nawaazil and other religious affairs?! Obviously, we do not expect anyone to dispute this affair, so will the speaker accept the verdict against the one (i.e. Abu Usaamah) who sat next to him, whilst translating a praise he knows is not in agreement with his true state of affairs and that of his employers (i..e. Greenlane’s Admin)!!! Here is the verdict once again:

Finally: We ask the speaker: ”Are Greenlane’s Admin and Abu Usaamah to be praised for co-operating with organizations of Bidah and misguidance, such as Ihyaa Turaath, Al-Maghrib Institute, Singers etc See here: http://www.salafitalk.net/st/viewmessages.cfm?Forum=9&Topic=5220 – all about the Aqeedah and Manhaj of Ihyaa Turaath.
Is it possible for any claimant to Salafiyyah to co-operate with Ihyaa Turaath after being well aware of their clear affairs of bidah and misguidance in Aqeedah and Manhaj?! Is it possible for any claimant to Salafiyyah to keep quiet about the clear and grave deviations of Ihyaa Turaath [in Aqeedah and Manhaj] after being well aware of them?! Is it possible for any claimant to Salafi to show enmity towards those who unveil the calamities of Ihyaa Turaath?! Is it possible for any claimant to Salafiyyah to deliberately ignore the deviations of Ihyaa Turaath [in Aqeedah and Manhaj] and openly declare its working relationship with them?! Is it possible for any claimant to Salafiyyah to unite with Ihyaa Turaath after being well aware of their clear deviations in Aqeedah and Manhaj?!
Indeed, the speaker stated that the believer is [كيِّس -Smart] and [فطِن – discerning….!!!] So let us employ this smartness and discernment because it is exactly what Shaikh Rabee (may Allaah preserve him) advises all the seekers of knowledge, saying: ”We do not say, Close your eyes and gallop behind us” rather we say, ”Study with understanding, sound reasoning and attentiveness, and together with truthfulness and sincerity.” [http://www.sahab.net/forums/index.php?showtopic=149391 ]
Therefore, should we close our eyes to the calamities of Greenlane’s Admin and gallop behind the speaker’s praises for them, or should we utilize the smartness and discernment he suggested?! If we utilize this smartness and discernment, then it would necessitate that we have to keep away from all the organizations of Bidah, such as Ihyaa Turaath, Al-Maghrib Institute, and we should refrain from praising deviants, such as Al-Qaradaawi, Ar’oor, Salmaan, Safar, Aaidh Qar’nee and others!!! So let it be known that we will apply this advice of the speaker in the right place and we will not close our eyes and gallop behind his views. In addition, here is also another good reminder for him and us: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bWPR3Eacn4k
