A Brief Clarification Regarding LearnAboutIslam.co.uk and SunnahRadio.net
In The Name of Allaah, The Most Merciful, The Bestower of Mercy
All praise is due to Allah, who guided us to this blessed Salafi Dawah. What follows is a brief point of clarification, regarding the sister sites run by the Masjid in order to spread Salafiyyah -via the scholars and their students- to the best of our ability.
Firstly: SunnahRadio.net and LearnAboutIslam.co.uk are under the complete supervision of Al Markaz as Salafi – Salaficentre.com. However, not everyone associated with the Salafi Centre is responsible for supervising these two websites. Those responsible as admins are:
- Abu Aa’isha Amjad Khan
- Abu ‘Eesa Faizal Kara
- Abu Abdillaah Aqeel Tabani
- Omer Ali
The rest of us at Salafi Centre (including myself) are not responsible for its administration, nor have we been put in charge by the Masjid Committee.
Secondly: The Masjid Committee works closely with those who update LearnAboutIslam and SunnahRadio; and we seek advice from the students, especially those who are very experienced in disseminating knowledge. We strictly seek to adhere to the advice of Shaikh Ubaid (may Allaah preserve him) as follows:
I say: I advise you; neither accept cassettes nor books except those of a person whom you know to be upon the Sunnah and a witness of that is established for him—the one well-known to be upon the Sunnah and an opposition to it is not manifested from him. This is an (abiding) general principle applied to him whilst he is alive and after his death. The one who passed away and we regarded him to be upon the Sunnah, then in our view he is upon the Sunnah and we ask Allaah to keep him firm upon it in the afterlife [i.e. Allaah grants him firmness to answer the questions in the grave due to adherence to the Sunnah (Tawheed and following the Messenger) and resurrects him in the afterlife as a person of Sunnah] just as he was kept firm upon it whilst he was alive…aameen. This is the first affair. If the affair of a person is hidden from you–the one whose books and cassettes are famous and his fame is widespread–then ask those who are well acquainted with him and those who know about his state of affairs. That is because neither is the Sunnah hidden nor are its people. A man’s Tazkiyah (i.e. the clear witness that he is upright upon the Sunnah) are his own actions. His Tazkiyah are his own actions that he is upon the Sunnah. It is the witness and the people mention him with it during his life and after his death. [ref 1]
This is what the Salafiyyoon adhere to and this is what we also seek to adhere to -by the Tawfeeq of Allaah. We also consult students, especially the experienced elder ones. Alhamdulilaah we were pleased to have some correspondence from our elder and ustadh, Uways at-Taweel yesterday, in helping us to refine an audio we have on the website, and may Allah reward him with much khair. And this advice was welcomed indeed, and we are always eager to receive advice from every Salafi, regardless their age and experience. Baarakallaahu Feekum.
Finally: Any issues regarding SunnahRadio.net and LearnAboutIslam.co.uk should be addressed to the above mentioned brothers (Faizal, Amjad Aqil and Omer) – those appointed by the Masjid Committee -so we welcome advice via any person who can reach the Admin at learnaboutislam and SunnahRadio. As for the Masjid Committee as a whole (which includes Faizal and Amjad), then as we have mentioned earlier, we strive to adhere to what has been stated in the following links:
We ask Allaah (The Most High) to protect us and all the Salafiyyoon, pardon our mistakes and shortcomings. We ask Allaah (The Most High) to grant us Ikhlaas, Thabaat, Sidq and Husnul Khaatimah…Aameen
