Al-Maktabah As-Salafiyyah Has Done Nothing Wrong To Brother Tahir Wyatt, Rather He Brought Blame on Himself Due To His Actions and Companionship

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

Indeed, the affair of Tahir Wyatt (may Allaah rectify his affair) is easy to understand. If I am told that brother Tahir has received praises from such and such Shaikh, I will reply saying: Tahir Wyatt’s actions are proof of what he is guilty of. So let us look at some insightful statements of Shaikh Ubaid (may Allaah preserve him):


Therefore, it is incumbent upon you that when the state of that person is made clear–the one whose fame is widespread–then you should be cautious of him as long as he was warned against by those people of knowledge and Imaan who are upon the Sunnah; for indeed they will unveil his affair with evidences.  And there is no hindrance in unveiling the state of that person who has been warned against by a scholar or scholars with the appropriate etiquettes and in a good manner because that scholar will say to you: “I saw this and that in him, and I saw this and that in the book of such and such, or I heard this or that in the cassette of such and such.” [End of quote]

So what is the affair that is manifest about brother Tahir?

Firstly, brother Tahir is an associate of

Abu Hurairah (radiyallaahu-anhu) said, the Messenger (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam) said: ”A person is upon the religion of his friend, so let each one of you look at whom he befriends.” [As-Saheehah: 97]

And amongst the associates of brother Tahir at is Naveed Ayaaz- the shameless and obstinate shelterer of the staunch followers of Al-Maribi, Al-Halabi and Al-Maghraawi at Masjid As-Sunnah [Cheethamhill-Manchester]. Naveed openly accompanies the staunch followers of these innovators at Masjid As-Sunnah as well as promote the compulsive liar and man of Bidah Abu Usaamah. Likewise, Naveed associates himself with Greenlane’s Admin -the affiliates of Ihyaa Turaath, Yasir Qadhi, Abu Usaamah, Kamaal Mekki etc. This is Naveed’s companionship, an associate of Tahir Whytt at And just as Naveed finds excuses for his companions and attacks the Salafiyyoon of Nelson and Manchester, likewise Tahir Whytt is guilty of a similar crime from another angle, as Shaikh Rabee Bin Haadi (may Allaah preserve him) stated:

Finally: We remind ourselves of this hadeeth once again-Narrated Aisha (radiyallaahu-anhaa): I heard the Prophet (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam) saying, ‘’Souls are like recruited troops; those who are of like qualities are inclined to each other, but those who have dissimilar qualities differ.’’ [Saheeh Bukhaari Vol 4. Hadeeth Number 3336. Darusallam]

Al-Haafidh Ibn Hajar (rahimahullaah) stated one of the meanings of this hadeeth in Fat-hul Baari that Al-Khattaabi (rahimahullaah) said: This may indicate to mean similarity in good and evil, righteousness or corruption– the good one amongst the people  is inclined towards one similar to him, and the evil one is similarly inclined towards the one similar to him.  Souls have an affinity with others in accordance with the nature in which they were created, good or evil. They will agree if their natures are similar, otherwise they will be at loggerheads…  [See Fat-hul Baari for further details]

Tahir Whytt’s associate at (Naveed Ayaaz) refuse to take a stance against al-Maribi, rather he even defends the staunch followers of Al-Maribi and attack the Salafiyyoon. Likewise, Tahir refuses to take a stance but finds it easy to criticise, just as Shaikh Rabee (may Allaah preserve him) has stated.

As for the brothers at Al-Maktabah as-Salafiyyah, their companionship is well known in the UK, America, Canada and elsewhere. They are neither with the innovators Al-Maribi, Al-Halabi, Al-Maghraawi nor are they associated with any Markaz (or organization) that promotes these people, nor are they associated with any individual who promotes them. Therefore, the affair is very clear.

We ask Allaah for Sidq, Thabaat, Ikhlaas and Husnul Khaatimah. Aameen


 The verdict of the scholars against Abul Hasan Al-Maribi

Al-Allaamah Saaleh Al-Fawzaan (may Allaah preserve him) said:

Abandon this man (i.e. Abul Hasan) and call to the methodology of Ahlus Sunnah wal-Jamaa-ah.” [Source: Siyaanatus-salafi Min Waswasati Wa-Talbeesaat Ali Al-Halabi: 533]

Al-Allaamah Abdullaah Al-Ghudayaan (rahimahullaah) said:

”This man (i.e. Abul Hasan al-Maribi) is subjected to trials and tribulations, (he is) insignificant and foolish.” [Source: Siyaanatus salafi: page: 533]

Al-Allaamah Bin Yahyah An-Najmi (rahimahullaah) said:

”Indeed, it has been finally established with me that Abul Hasan is a Mubtadi (innova-tor).” [Source: Siyaanatus-salafi: page: 533]

Imaam Muqbil Bin Haadee Al-Waadi-ee (rahimahullaah) said:

”Be cautious of Abul Hasan….I fear for the Dawah with regards to Abul Hasan.” He (rahimahullaah) also said: ”Abul Hasan is sly. He utilises cleverness and not what is from righteousness, purity and uprightness…..” [Source: Siyaanatus Salafi page: 533]

Al-Allaamah Rabee Bin Hadee al-Madkhalee (may Allaah preserve him) said:

The initial affair with regards to them (i.e. Al-Abul Hasan al-Maribi, Muhammad Hassaan and Abu Ishaaq Al-Huwayni) is that they are ikhwaanees, upon the nurturing of the ikhwaanees.” [Source: Siyaanah: page:534]

 Shaikh Muhammad Bin Haadee (may Allaah preserve him) said:

”Indeed, many of the Salafi brothers are aware of the condition of this man (i.e. Abul Hasan Al-Maribi); rather at present he is with the groups of illegal partisanship, and he says, he says and he says of that which is recorded in his cassettes. And he used to reject these (affairs) the day before, but today he came with them with his own tongue. We ask Allaah for wellbeing and safety. He now speaks with the affairs he used to reject from the callers to illegal partisanship the day before….until the Shaikh said: ‘’I know him (i.e. Abul Hasan), he does not feel ashamed of telling lies.” [Source: Siyaanatus salafi: page: 535]

Al-Allaamah Ubaid Bin Abdillaah Al-Jaabiriy (may Allaah preserve him) said:

This man (i.e. Abul Hasan) is an ikhwaanee…” [Source: Siyaanatus salafi: page:534]
