In The Name of Allaah, The Most Merciful, The Bestower of Mercy
Firstly: let us remind ourselves of this statement reported by Imaam Al-Barbahaari (rahimahullaah)!
Imaam Barbahaaree (rahimahullaah) said that Al-Hasan (al-Basree) said, ‘The wise man does not argue or seek to overcome with stratagem rather he propagates his wisdom. If it is accepted he praises Allah and if it is rejected he praises Allah'
Shaikh Saaleh Al-Fawzaan (may Allaah preserve him) commented on the above statement saying: Concerning the statement of Imaam Barbahaaree that Hasan al-Basree said: ‘The wise man does not argue or seek to overcome with stratagem….’
Al-Hasan Al-Basree: He is Al-Hasan Ibnu Abil Hasan Al-Basree the well-known Imaam from amongst the Taa’bieen. He said: ‘The wise man’; That is the one who possesses wisdom and wisdom is to place something in its (proper) place. Likewise, the wise one means the one with understanding. Therefore, two meanings are intended by (the phrase) Al-Hakeem (The wise one). The first intended meaning is one who places the affairs in their (proper) place. And it is also intended to mean the one who has understanding because wisdom is understanding and knowledge of what is intended by Allah and His Messenger (i.e. the understanding of the Book of Allah and the Sunnah of His Messenger).
He (i.e. the wise one) ‘does not argue’; He does not debate (with) a fruitless debate that is devoid of benefit. And ‘he (i.e. the wise one) does not seek to overcome with stratagem’; He does not seek to overcome the people of falsehood with stratagem and to make them submit.
His wisdom: That is he propagates his knowledge and if accepted he praises Allah. This is what is sought after. And if it (i.e. his knowledge/wisdom) is not accepted, he is absolved of his responsibility and the proof is conveyed.
And concerning the statement, ‘He (i.e. the wise one) praises Allah’ because he established and conveyed the proof, and fulfilled that which is required of him, and the guiding of the hearts is in the hands of Allah (Glorified and Exalted Be He).

We ask Allaah for Sidq Aameen.
Muhammad Al-Maaliki constantly insulted his own intelligence whilst seeking to divert the attention of his audience from the realities of Masjid As-Sunnah’s Admin. Throughout his rant and pathetic defence of the staunch followers of the three contemporary Mubtadi’ah [Al-Halabi, Al-Maribi and Al-Maghraawi] at Masjid As-Sunnah, he deliberately sought to divert attention from the main reason of the dispute between Al-Markazus Salafi and the Masjid Admin of Masjid As-Sunnah. This was a stratagem utilised by Muhammad Al-Maaliki and it is a well-known tactic employed by many of those who always seek to find lame excuses for the fallen figureheads of bidah and their obstinate followers.
Abu Usaamah, a companion of Muhammad Al-Maliki, is also well-known for this evil behaviour-always seeking to divert his audience from the main reason of the dispute between him and the Salafiyyoon. For instance, when Abu Usaamah was refuted and exposed for his evil state of affairs [i.e. his praise of the Mubtadi’ah, Al-Maribi, Al-Halabi, Yusuf Qaradawi and his association with the organization of bidah (Ihya Turaath) etc] he sought to divert his audience from the main issues by stating that Yahyah Al-Hajoori Al-Haddaadi Al-Mubtadi has also criticised Salafipublications, whilst deliberately hiding the fact that Al-Hajoori’s criticisms against Salafipulications and the Salafi Scholars was due to his evil and satanic manhaj of Al-Haddaadiyyah [See link about Al-Hajoori Al-Haddaadi Al-Mubtadi http://www.alhajuri.com]. However, Goldie (Abu Usaamah) only mentioned Al-Hajoori in order to divert his audience from his own calamities.
Likewise, the chancer [Muhammad Al-Maliki, a companion of Goldie] sought to divert attention from the calamities of Masjid As-Sunnah’s Admin by asking a stupid question to Al-Markazus Salafi, saying: ‘’Who says that Shaikh Wasiyullaah is a man of bidah?!’’ Muhammad asked us this stupid question! And neither did he state who held such a view nor cited the relevance of it to the discussion; rather it was another stratagem and deceitful tactic aimed at diverting his audience from the main issues. This question was nothing else but a stratagem by way of which he sought to arouse the emotions of the common people at Masjid As-Sunnah and divert them from the very reasons Masjid As-Sunnah’s Admin were being criticized. He did not site a single evidence to respond to the knowledge based criticisms against the staunch followers and supporters of Al-Maribi (Ikhwaani Mubtadi), Al-Halabi (Murji Mubtadi) and Al-Maghraawi (Takfeeri, revolutionary, Mubtadi); rather he sought to play about with the emotions of his listeners. This reminds us of an observation of Al-Allaamah Rabee Bin Haadi Al-Madkhali (may Allaah preserve him), who stated: ”We call to the methodology of the Salaf—to the Book of Allaah and the Sunnah of the Messenger. We utilize them as proofs in our creed; in our acts of worship; in our stances; in our relationship with the rulers and the ruled and in our relationship with the groups and sects. As for others, they play games and tricks. By Allaah! You do not find them except that they play tricks and games with the passion (or inclinations) of the youth.” [End of quote http://www.sahab.net/forums/index.php?showtopic=114620]
All praise is due to Allaah, neither did we employ stratagem to over come the followers of Al-Maribi, Al-Halabi and Al-Maghraawi at Masjid As-Sunnah, nor did we divert from the main issues being discussed, rather we questioned both Muhammad Al-Maliki and Masjid As-Sunnah’s Admin about the correct Salafi stance to be employed against the Mubtadi’ah.
