Advise to Those Who [Don’t know/Those Who Refuse To know] Who Abu Usaamah Is: [A simple verdict from the Mufti of the South of Saudi Arabia]
Question to Al-Allaamah Ahmad An-Najmi (rahimahullaah):
Question: “O Shaykh Ahmad we have with us in America a man called Abu Usaamah who is considered to be from the Du’aat, he aids and supports Abul-Hasan and he calls some noble Salafi brothers ghulaat (extremists), muqallidah (blind followers), and muhqiboon (the people whose religion is the religion of the one they blindly follow), so what is the legislated position from this man and how should we deal with him?
The noble Scholar (rahimahullaah) answered:
موقفكم منه كموقفكم من أهل البدعة , أعرض عنه و اتركه
“Your position with him is the same as your position with the People of Innovation. Turn away from him and abandon him.”
