In The Name of Allaah, The Most Merciful, The Bestower of Mercy
It was obligatory on Dr (Ibraaheem)- whilst he was giving advice about boycotting and its precise principles– to clarify the true picture of boycotting held by the Salaf because a deficient clarification in this affair is a great shortcoming that will lead to an incorrect understanding of this great fundamental. That is because it is understood from Dr Ibraaheem’s speech that boycotting has a singular image, but the truth is that it of different types, and from them: To refrain from giving salaam (i.e. refrain from giving salaam to the figureheads of bidah, those who openly manifest their wicked acts etc); refrain from sitting with them; refrain from honouring them and the important people (i.e. such as the scholars and other pious leaders) are to refrain from praying their Janaazah.
Reader [may Allaah grant us and you thabaat upon the Sunnah(Aameen)]: This is part one in the section of Dr Shaikh Abdullah Al-Bukhaari’s criticism against Dr Ibraaheem ar-Ruhayli’s deficient and defective advice to Ahlus Sunnah regarding boycotting. Shaikh Abdullah’s book is a [Hundred and Sixty pages] and we have now reached [Page Number Eighty-Four]. We will now return to Shaikh Rabee’s observations (Part 10) and as soon as Shaikh Rabee’s observations are completed, we will carry on with Shaikh Abdullah’s observations by the Permission, Aid and Assistance of Allaah (The Most High).
