Using Forged Twitter Identities to Troll and Attack Students of Knowledge and The Salafi Maraakiz

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

لِكُلِّ قَوْمٍ وَارِث وَلِكُلِّ أَرْضٍ حَارِث وَلِكُلِّ ضَرٍّ هَالِك

“Every people have their inheritors, every earth has a cultivator and every evil has one destroyed by it.”

Indeed, using forged internet identities was a path adopted by some of those who defended Jamiat ahle Hadeeth, Suhaib Hasan, Al-Maribi and other deviants until they were exposed by Ustaadh Amjad Rafiq (may Allaah preserve him). Recently, we are witnessing the re-emergence of this path – but this time on twitter- amongst some of those who claim that they are enjoining good and forbidding evil, whilst trolling with hidden or forged twitter identities to attack Salafi students of knowledge and the Maraakiz. Therefore, we remind them of a statement of Shaikh Rabee (may Allaah preserve him) as follows:

By Allah no one hides his [real] name except a person of evil.  Astaghfirullah! Astaghfirullah! Why are you hiding your [real] name?! If you have the truth with you then announce your name, if you have falsehood with you then fear Allah! Don’t speak! There is no reason to hide your [real] name, no reason whatsoever, this is something unknown with the Salaf…”

We ask Allaah for ikhlaas, sidq, thabaat and husnul khaatimah…Aameen
