A Statement of Shaikh Ubaid Regarding How Tricksters, Deceivers and Dubious Personalities Usually Get Exposed
In The Name of Allaah, The Most Merciful, The Bestower of Mercy
Shaikh Ubaid [may Allaah preserve him and grant him a long life filled with everything that Allaah loves] said: There is none who hides behind the Sunnah– the people beguiled by him, gather around him to learn, adhered to him, became dependent on him and accepted everything he said–except that Allaah will reveal his affair, uncover and expose his concealed state of affairs to specific individuals and to the general public, regarding what was hidden and apparent of his deception, his mixing truth with falsehood, his plots and deceitful practices. Allaah paves the way for men of virtue, intelligence, wisdom, strength and exceptional natural ability–possessors of knowledge, skill and sound understanding of the religion–through whom He unveils the affair of that trickster, dubious and deceitful person.
