[2] Didsbury Masjid Admin [South Manchester]: They promote Jamal Al-Badawi [An Aqlaani (gives precedence to his intellect over the ahaadeeth and falls into philosophical rhetoric)]

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

Firstly: In post number one http://salaficentre.com/2015/07/1-didsbury-masjid-admin-south-manchester-who-are-their-associates/ … we saw that the Admin of Didsbury Masjid cooperates with Abu Eesa Niamatullah- an associate of the deviant Al-Maghrib Institute and a signatory of the pledge of mutual respect between deviant groups. Abu Eesa is also a close companion of Yasir Qadhi the Ikhwaani deviant. [Yasir Qadhi, see link http://www.salafis.com/tags/yasir-qadhi.cfm

Secondly: Who else is one of those people utilised by the Admin of Didsbury Masjid for Dawah?! They utilise the likes of Jamaal Al-Badawi – An Aqlaani [gives precedence to his intellect over the ahaadeeth and falls into philosophical rhetoric]. Listen to Ustaadh Abu Khadeejah’s (may Allaah preserve him) clarification about the Manhaj of Jamaal Al-Badawi and Hasan at-Turaabi: http://www.learnaboutislam.co.uk/audio/abu-khadeejah/Refutation-of-Hassan-Turabi-&-Jamal-Badawi-Abu-Khadeejah-Abdul-Wahid.mp3


Let us acquaint ourselves with a few statements of the Scholars about philosophical rhetoric

Imaam Ahmad (rahimahullaah) said: I am neither a person of philosophical rhetoric nor do I recognize philosophical rhetoric in anything. (I only recognize) that which is found in the Book of Allaah or in the Sunnah of His Messenger (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam). [1]

Imaam Ash-Shaafi’ee (rahimahullaah) said: [learning] knowledge of philosophical rhetoric is ignorance.

Imaam Abu Yusuf (rahimahullaah) said: [Learning] knowledge of philosophical rhetoric is ignorance and to be ignorant of philosophical rhetoric is knowledge. [2]

Shaikhul Islaam Ibn Taymiyyah (rahimahullaah) said:

Philosophical rhetoric is like the flesh of a camel at the top of a mountain.  It is neither easy to climb the mountain nor is the flesh good enough to justify climbing, nor is the path leading to it easy to follow.[3]

To be continued…In-Shaa-Allaah
