[J] Brother Muhammad Al-Maaliki! This Was a Deliberate and Devious Misrepresentation In The Name of Defending Staunch Followers of Al-Maribi (Al-Mubtadi) @ Masjid As-Sunnah

In The Name of Allaah, The Most Merciful, The Bestower of Mercy

In his haphazard defence of the staunch followers of Al-Maribi at Masjid As- Sunnah, whilst slandering Al-Markazus Salafi, Brother Muhammad Al-Maaliki stated that we can talk about mistakes but not cause hatred.

This statement was yet another attempt to divert attention from the main issue [i.e. the dispute between Al-Markazus Salafi and Masjid As-Sunnah’s Admin was due to the three contemporary figureheads of Bidah, Al-Maghraawi, Al-Maribi and Al-Halabi etc]. Likewise, this view of Brother Muhammad is a gross misrepresentation of the situation because there is no doubt that the Mubtadi’ah (Al-Maribi, Al-Maghraawi, Al-Halabi etc) are to be hated, refuted and exposed. On the other hand, Masjid As-Sunnah’s Admin have, to this day, persisted in their defense of these three Mubtadi’ah even after some of the Kibaarul Ulama and senior students of knowledge have written numerous, detailed and unambiguous refutations against them.

Therefore, the least expected from brother Muhammad Al-Maaliki is that he should have given precedence to the clear knowledge based clarifications of the scholars and advise Masjid As-Sunnah’s Admin to abandon those obstinate Mubtadi’ah (Al-Maribi, Al-Maghraawi and Al-Halabi)! Is Brother Muhammad unaware of the statement of Imaam Sufyaan Ath-Thawri (rahimahullaah), who stated: “If you loved a man for Allaah and then he innovated in Islaam and you didn’t hate him for it, you never truly loved him for the sake of Allaah.” [1]

Is Brother Muhammad able to justify with proofs and honesty that Masjid As-Sunnah’s Admin are upon truth after persisting upon evil for over ten years?! Is Brother Muhammad able to justify with evidence and honesty that his defense of Masjid As-Sunnah’s Admin was praiseworthy and that we are guilty of spreading hatred, only because we transmitted the knowledge based refutations of the scholars against Masjid Sunnah’s Admin!

Is Brother Muhammad able to justify with proofs and honesty that his defense of Masjid As-Sunnah Admin was praiseworthy, whilst knowing fully well that Al-Maribi is still upon misguidance?! Is brother Muhammad unaware of the statement of Imaam Fudayl Ibn Iyaad (rahimahullaah), who stated: ‘’Had the innovator humbled himself to the Book of Allaah and the Sunnah of His Prophet, he would not have followed his innovation; but he is amazed with his views, so he follows what he invented.’’ [2]

Then why did Brother Muhammad falsely blame us, and why did he slander and falsely accuse us of spreading hatred? Is hatred towards the Mubtadi [Al-Maribi] and his staunch followers a blameworthy affair?!

Is the harshness we have shown Al-Maribi, Al-Halabi and Al-Maghraawi praiseworthy or not?! Are we not following the path of those contemporary Salafi scholars who have refuted these obstinate innovators of today?! Indeed, is this harshness towards innovators not from the way of the Salaf?! Abu Qilaabah (rahimahullaah) said: “Neither sit with the people of desires (i.e. people of bidah) nor argue with them, for indeed I do not feel secure that they will plunge you in their misguidance, or bewilder you regarding what (i.e. the truth) you already know.” [3]

Salaam bin Abee Mutee said: A man from the people of bidah said to Ayyoub (i.e. Ayyoob As-Sakhtiyaanee): ‘O Abu- Bakr! Can I ask you about a word? [He (i.e. Salaam)] said: “So I saw him (i.e. Ayyoub) gesturing with his hand, whilst saying: ”’Not even half a word; not even half a word!”[4]

Yahya Ibn Abee Katheer (rahimahullaah) said: ”If you meet a person of innovation on a road, then take another one.” [5]

Sallaam Ibn Abee Mutee (rahimahullaah) said: ”A man from the people of desires said to Ayyoub As-Sakhtiyaanee: ”O Abaa-Bakr, I want to ask you about some statement”, so Ayyoub walked away and started gesturing with his finger, saying: ”Not even half a statement.” [6]

Therefore, we ask Brother Muhammad Al-Maaliki: Are you censuring us for warning and distancing ourselves from the contemporary innovators (Al-Maribi, Al-Halabi and Al-Maghraawi) and those who deliberately carry and spread their dangerous Shubuhaat?!

Are you falsely accusing us of spreading blameworthy hatred in order to shield the staunch followers of the Mubtadi’ah (Al-Maribi, Al-Halabi, Al-Maghraawi) at Masjid As-Sunnah?! Indeed, this view of yours is a false one; rather it is a deliberate and devious misrepresentation. Do you want us to love those who defend Mubtadi’ah?! Or is it that you don’t want to hear what will destroy your illusions about the Haal of Masjid As-Sunnah’s Admin?

Brother Muhammad! We must strive to be honest, especially if it is regarding an affair one finds very difficult to be honest about. We cannot lie to ourselves or against other people just because the truth might require action, and action requires courage by the Tawfeeq of Allaah (The Most High). There was no need to stir the emotions of your listeners and slander Al-Markazus Salafi.

We cannot follow the path of the hizbiyyoon of Masjid As-Sunnah’s Admin, who deliberately shun the knowledge based refutations of the scholars against the innovators. They keep on telling big lies and repeating it, whist hoping that the people will eventually come to believe it. However, lies can only be maintained for some time because it has become manifestly clear to all the Maraakiz of Salafiyyah that these people are staunch defenders of the contemporary Mubtadi’ah [Al-Halabi (Murji Mubatdi); Al-Maribi (Ikhwaani Mubtadi); Al-Maghraawi (Takfeeri Mubtadi)], even though those who love the lie will persist upon it, except those whom Allaah guides.

Therefore, brother Muhammad, it is better that you abandon the illusion that Masjid As-Sunnah’s Admin was defended based on truth. This illusion cannot stand in the face of the mountains of evidences against the Mubtadi’ah they still defend. And Allaah knows best.

To be continued In-Shaa-Allaah
