One of the things you may discover when a man of bidah and falsehood uses the statement of scholar to establish his falsehood

Shaikh Muhammad Baazmool (may Allaah preserve him) stated:

And whenever you find the statement of a Muhaq’qiq Scholar being utilized as proof by a person of bidah and falsehood in seeking to establish his falsehood and you refer that statement back to its original source, you will not find except that this (person of falsehood) did cut off and separate some part of it from another part.

[6] Why some people refuse to accept truth after its clarification? Short Reminders from Al-Allaamah Abdur-Rahmaan Ibn Yahyah Al-Mu-allimee (rahimahullaah)]

To oppose one’s desires for the sake of the truth in affairs of knowledge and creed can be difficult, so it requires research and contemplation. Also in facing such difficulty one is in need of asking the scholars and benefitting from them. So with regards to what has been stated about a person’s acknowledgement of the truth and the difficulty in doing so, he should cling to piety, whilst seeking the Tawfeeq of Allaah and guidance. [Slightly Paraphrased and abridged…for further details, see: At-Tankeel Bimaa Fee Ta’need Al-Kawthariy Minal Baatil.

Fourthly: Envy: It may be that when another person clarifies the truth for him, he sees that by acknowledging such truth, it would necessitate an acknowledgement of the clarifier’s virtue, knowledge and correctness due to that clarification; so this may become great in the eyes of the people and they begin to follow him. So you will find some of those who attribute themselves to knowledge being eager to prove the mistakes of other scholars even if that is done by way of falsehood due to envy and seeking to diminish their status amongst the people.

Thirdly: Pride: It may be that a person is upon ignorance or falsehood, so another person comes along and clarifies the proofs for him, but he sees that by acknowledging such proofs, it would necessitate that he is deficient and that it was such a person who guided him. And due to this, we find that it is not difficult for some of those who attribute themselves to knowledge to acknowledge their mistakes when it becomes manifests to them in their researches and studies, but it becomes difficult upon them when others clarify such mistakes for them.

Secondly: It may be that clinging to falsehood brings him prestige, fame and a livelihood, so it becomes difficult for him to acknowledge that he is upon falsehood, which may result in a loss of all those things (i.e. the fame, prestige, livelihood etc).

Firstly: A person sees that by acknowledging the truth, it would necessitate that he was upon falsehood, because a person is nurtured upon a religion, creed, school of thought or views inherited from his nurturer and teacher, which he considers to be the truth. So when it is manifested that those affairs are falsehood, it becomes difficult for him to acknowledge that. This is because he sees that the deficiencies of his teacher or nurturer necessitate his own deficiencies and an acknowledgement of their misguidance or errors necessitates his own deficiencies.

The Religion comprises of various levels: Refraining from the prohibited affairs and fulfilment of commandments; acknowledging truth, belief in it and being aware of it.  To oppose one’s desires by refraining (from falsehood) for the sake of the truth is something very clear, for indeed most of what is prohibited are the lusts and (evil) pleasures.  It may be that a person does not really desire anything of those (prohibited) things in particular, but he merely desires them due to an opponent. To oppose one’s desires–by way of action– for the sake of the truth is a manifest affair due to the responsibility and difficulty it necessitates, and this occurs from different angles….

A brief response by Shaikh Fawzaan regarding the one who says that praising ahlul bidah is permissible because the Messenger praised the khawaarij

Shaikh Fawzaan responds to the statement of the one who says that praising ahlul bidah is permissible because the Messenger praised the khawaarij

This questioner from Britain says:

We have a caller who says that indeed it is permissible to praise Ahlul Bidah and that indeed the Prophet (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam) praised the Khawaarij by way of his statement: A people will appear amongst you, you will belittle your prayers compared to their prayer….etc

Answer: This is not a praise from the Messenger –sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam-; he (i.e. this caller) did not complete the hadeeth (which is) ‘’They (i.e. Khawaarij) will exit the religion just as an arrow goes through its target.” The end of the Hadeeth (is), ‘’ ‘They (i.e. Khawaarij) will exit the religion just as an arrow goes through its target.” The Messenger-sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam- intended to rebuke them and warn against them, and it is not praise… Listen to audio on this link: http://www.sahab.net/forums/index.php?showtopic=155460
