[Part 3] A Series in Response to Abu Usaama’s Habitual Deceitfulness
His Recent Call To Truthfulness Amid His Past and Present Track Record of Deception
Allaah (The Most High) said:
يَـٰٓأَيُّہَا ٱلَّذِينَ ءَامَنُواْ لِمَ تَقُولُونَ مَا لَا تَفۡ تَفۡعَلُونَ ڪَبُرَ مَقۡتًا عِندَ ٱللَّهِ أَن تَقُولُواْ مَا لَا تَفۡعَلُونَ
O you who believe! Why do you say that which you do not do? Most hateful it is with Allah that you say that which you do not do.” [61:2-3]
Abu Usaamah says that one of the characteristics of the people of Islaam in general is that one does his best to be truthful. And if a person is lying to put his point across, even though some may not know that he is lying, he should know that the Haqq is not with him.
Reader: Before directing you to Abu Usaamah’s false claim to truthfulness, let us remind ourselves of the following from the statements of the scholars. Shaikhul Islaam Ibn Taymiyyah (rahimahullaah) said in Majmoo Al-Fataawaa 20/84: ”The just amongst men is the one who informs of an affair the way it is; he neither adds to it and becomes a liar nor does he subtract from it and becomes a concealer.”
Shaikh Saaleh Al-Fawzaan (may Allaah preserve him) was asked:
Is lying permissible in calling to Allaah? And is ‘the goal justifies the means’ a maslahah (benefit) from the masaalih (beneficial affairs) of the Sharee’ah?
Lying is not permissible. It is a major sin from the major sins. It (lying) is not permissible except in three affairs which the prophet made an exception: (a) lying during war, because war is deceit; (b) lying in order to bring about peace between the people; (c) lying between married couples in order to bring about rectification in the family with regards to the relationship between (husband and the wife). These three affairs are that of maslahah and in them is a greater good than evil; so (lying) is permissible (in this case). As for calling to Allaah, it has no need for lies. It is not permissible to utilize lies in calling to Allaah. Calling to Allaah is to (be carried out) by way of truth, the Book, the Sunnah, fine admonition and arguing in a way that is better and not by way of lies.” [Source: Al-ijaabatul Muhimmah Fee Mashaakil Al-Mulimmah, page:271-272]
 Present Track Record of Deception and Cutting off Text
Reader: Just few days ago he attempted to cut off a big chuck from the question that was put to Shaikh Ahmad An-Najmi about him. see link below: https://twitter.com/SalafiCentre/status/718165871961751553
 Past Track Record of Deception, Concealment and Adding to Text
Reader is directed to this article Titled: Few Deceitful acts and lies backfired on Abu Usaamah in Public but still no public repentance: http://www.salaficentre.com/2015/12/few-deceitful-acts-and-lies-backfired-on-abu-usaamah-in-public-but-still-no-public-repentance/
Finally: After reading the above article, one should be no doubt that this man is one put to trial due to his own fault. This is most unfortunate indeed that a man who takes the seat to teach people is a manifest unrepentant liar and distorter. He deliberately withheld facts so as to lead the unsuspecting listener to wrong conclusions, just as it has been stated that the liar is a thief, because the thief deceives you with regards to your wealth and the liar deceives you with regards to your intellect. [Adabud Dunyaa Wal-Aakhirah: page:262]
Abu Usaamah deliberately hid information and none amongst his followers can claim that he forgot some information by accident. Indeed not only did he lie, conceal and distort in order to manipulate the feelings, thoughts and actions of others; rather he lied, concealed and distorted in order to defend the people of bidah and slander the people of Sunnah. If this was not the case he would not have sought to add to his translations about Shaikh Rabee nor would he have withheld information whilst seeking to address Ustaadh Abu Khadeehaj. Concealment, distortion and manipulation became his second skin since he started propagating false principles in the affair of Jarh Wat-tadeel and defending Mubadi’ah. Finally, regarding Abu Usaamah’s falsehood in the issues of Jarh wat-Tadeel, see here: http://www.abukhadeejah.com/al-jarh-wat-tadeel-and-the-corrupt-principles-of-abu-usamah-khalifah-part-1/
Despite this falsehood he is upon and his recent defence of the Mubtadi Ali Al-Halabi, Abu Usaamah thinks that he is not to be attributed to the people of bidah after Shaikh Ahmad An-Najmi attributed him to them! This is nothing else but insanity- rejoicing in what they have brought about of bidah and misguidance, and calling to it; yet they want to be attributed to the Sunnah and guidance!
We ask Allaah for safety, ikhlkaas, thabaat and husnul khaatimah.
