Greenlane’s Admin-Why do you hide truth and aggrandize the status of those who utter this statement…..!


The statement

Warn against the mistake and do not mention the name of the one who committed the mistake


Ali Ibn Shaqeeq (rahimahullaah) said:

I heard Abdullaah Ibnul Mubaarak (rahimahullaah) saying in the midst of the people: ”Leave the narrations of Amr Bin Thaabit, for indeed he used to revile the Salaf.” [1] [End of quote]


Shaikh Rabee (may Allaah preserve him) said:

By Allaah! They (i.e. innovators) are mentioned by their characteristics and by their names if the need arises. If such and such takes up the (position) of leading and guiding the Ummah and the youth, and dragging them to falsehood, then their names are mentioned. If the need arises to mention his name, then his name is mentioned. [2] [End of quote]

Greenlane’s Admin: So here we have Imaam Ibnul Mubaarak (rahimahullaah) warning against Amr Bin Thaabit in an open gathering and mentioning his name! These are our Salaf, so where is the evidence of the one who says that it is obligatory to mention the deviated views but not the names of the deviated one. Indeed, whenever our Ulama see the need and mention names of deviants, we will transmit their verdicts.
