Follow Allaah’s Path and Do Not Follow Bidah and Shubuhaat- By Imaam Mujaahid [rahimahullaah]

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

Allaah [The Most High] said:

وَأَنَّ هَـٰذَا صِرَٲطِى مُسۡتَقِيمً۬ا فَٱتَّبِعُوهُ‌ۖ وَلَا تَتَّبِعُواْ ٱلسُّبُلَ فَتَفَرَّقَ بِكُمۡ عَن سَبِيلِهِۦ‌ۚ ذَٲلِكُمۡ وَصَّٮٰكُم بِهِۦ لَعَلَّڪُمۡ تَتَّقُونَ

And verily, this is my Straight Path, so follow it, and follow not [other] paths, for they will separate you away from His Path. This He has ordained for you that you may become Al-Muttaqun [the pious] [6:153]

Abu Nu’aym [rahimahullaah] reported with his chain of transmission from Mujaahid [rahimahullaah] regarding the statement of Allaah: [وَلَا تَتَّبِعُواْ ٱلسُّبُلَ فَتَفَرَّقَ بِكُمۡ عَن سَبِيلِهِ – And follow not [other] paths, for they will separate you away from His Path], that it means: [Do not follow] Bidah [i.e. innovations in religion] and Shubuhaat  [i.e. affairs that are made to resemble truth but are falsehood in reality].

How The Khawaarij [Murderous Terrorist Devils] Settled in Different Regions After Ali [Ameerul Mumineen] and His Army Dealt with Them at Nahrawaan

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

Four thousand Khawaarij were fought against by Ali, Ameerul Mumineen [radiyallaahu-anhu] at Nahrawaan and none of them survived except nine. Two men from them departed to Sijistaan and through them appeared the Khawaarij of Sijstaan; two men from them departed to Yemen and through them appeared the Ibaadiyyah of Yemen; two men from them departed to Oman and through them appeared the Khawaarij of Oman; two men from them departed towards other regions of the Arabian Peninsula and through them appeared the Khawaarij of those regions. And a man from them departed to Syria. This was one of the reasons behind their settlement in different lands, then thereafter they became different murderous sects upon divergent creeds.

A Sunnah After The Witr Prayer

The Messenger of Allah – sallallaahu alaihi wa sallam – when he would give salaams after the witr prayer would say :
سُبحانَ الملِكِ القدُّوس

Three times and the third time he would raise his voice. (1)

Classified as Saheeh by Imam Al-Albaani in Saheeh an-Nisaa’i Hadeeth number 1732

(1) And in Hadeeth 1733 – also classified as Saheeh by Imam Al-Albaani – he would elongate the third time.

O MCR Hizbies! Why Do You Attach the Youth to The Figureheads of Bidah- [Sayyid Qutb, Hasan Al-Bannah, Al-Maribi, Al-Maghraawi etc]- and Their Books?

Shaikh Saaleh Al-Fawzaan [may Allaah preserve him] said:

And all praises and thanks be to Allaah, there are scholars of the Sunnah and upright [scholars].  Allaah [Glorified be He and free is He from all imperfections] has not [left you in a state to have] a need of the evil scholars and the books of misguidance, whilst we have authentic books.  Therefore, we hold onto the [upright scholars and authentic books] -neither go to the scholars of misguidance nor the innovators, nor to the books that are mixed [with falsehood].  All praises and thanks be to Allaah, we have good books and scholars, so we hold onto the scholars and the authentic books.

Salaficentre-By the Grace of Allaah-Not Guilty of Causing Disunity, For They Do Not Defend a Single Figurehead of Bidah In the Dunyah! But MCR Hizbies Find Lame Excuses For Takfeeri Figureheads, Such as Sayyid Qutb and Al-Maghraawi

Reality Check for Some Mancunian Hizbiyyoon [Illegal Partisans]: Is It Possible to Refute and Shun a Terrorist Without Refuting and Shunning Sayyid Qutb?!

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

Reality Check for Those Who Come Out to Denounce the Evil Acts of The Terrorists; Yet  They Recommend the Books of Sayyid Qutb To the Youth

Shaikh Rabee Bin Haadi (may Allaah preserve him) said:

Then the political groups came in this era, [whilst] being affected- to some extent-by the creed and methodologies of this sect [i.e. the khawaarij]. And for this reason, they do not give importance to [other affairs] besides politics. They neither give concern to rectifying the state of affairs of the Ummah though [sound] Creed and Knowledge nor do they reflect upon returning the Ummah to the Book and the Sunnah, and to steadfastness and righteousness which the Salafus Saaleh were upon in every aspect of the Religion. Rather they [i.e. these political groups] increase the Ummah in corruption-in creed and manners. So, you see them giving allegiance to the people of Bidah and misguidance.

They wage war against those people who [truly] follow the Qur’aan and the Sunnah, and those scholars who truly adhere to the Qur’aan and the Sunnah. They utter false opinions and slogans regarding the affair of ahlul bidah wad-dalaalah [i.e. the people of bidah and misguidance] and their books. And amongst them [i.e. those deviants whom the illegal partisans give a good image] is Sayyid Qutb and his followers- Sayyid Qutb, the one who embarked upon the methodology of the Khawaarij, the Rawaafid, the Mu’tazilah and the Jahmiyyah in creed, methodology and politics, especially in the subject matter of Takfeer. According to him [i.e. sayyid Qutb] all human societies are societies of Pre-Islamic ignorance and that the Muslim Ummah is upon the severest state of apostasy and Pre-Islamic ignorance. Then the path of the Baatiniyyah was added to this [i.e. this methodology of Sayyid Qutb], such as assassinations and explosions [i.e. by way of terrorist acts] etc. And his followers attribute themselves to the Salafi Methodology, which is a mighty plot against the [true and upright] Salafi leaders. [So] when you come to know this, then you will know that the Salafi Methodology is free from this [type] of Takfeer, [the evil act of causing] explosions and destruction, and the people of this treacherous [act].

Reality Check for Those Who Spread Ikhwaani and Other False Principles Amongst the Youth, saying: Read and Take What Is Good from The Books of Sayyid Qutb and Hasan Al-Banna, and Abandon Their Errors

Shaikh Saaleh Al-Fawzaan [may Allaah preserve him] said:

It is not permissible to exalt and praise the innovators even if they have some truth with them. That is because raising and praising them will spread their bidah and place them amongst the sincere ones-those who are taken as examples amongst distinguished men of this Ummah. The Salaf warned against having trust for the innovators, (warned against) praising them and their gatherings.

In this regard, Asad Ibn Musa (rahimahullaah) wrote:” Beware of being a brother of the innovator (by association) or a companion of his, or one whom you sit with; for indeed it has been narrated that ‘Whoever sits with a person of innovation has left the protection of Allaah and is entrusted to himself’.

The innovators must be warned against and kept away from even if they have some truth with them. Indeed, the most astray are not devoid of some truth, but if they have with them innovation, opposition and sinful views, it is not permissible to praise and exalt them. It is impermissible to not have an objection against their innovation because this spreads bidah, belittles the Sunnah and by way of this the innovator will emerge and become a guide for the Ummah.

As for giving consideration (to the fact) that the innovation has some truth, this does not justify praising him. This is -to a far greater extent- against what is of overriding benefit and it is known in relation to a principle in the religion that averting harm takes precedence over seeking that which is of benefit. And with regards to having hatred for the innovator, the harm that is averted from the Ummah is weightier than the benefit possessed by the innovator. And had we adhered to this concept (i.e. praising the innovator because he has some truth with him), then no one would have been judged to be misguided and declared an innovator. That is because there is not an innovator except that he has some truth and adherence to the Sunnah. The innovator (may) neither be a disbeliever nor be in opposition to all the Islamic legislation; rather he is either an innovator in some or most of the affairs. However, if the innovation is particularly related to affairs of Creed and Methodology, then the affair is dangerous indeed because it will become an example (to be followed); innovation will spread and the innovators will become active in spreading their innovation. hisNevertheless, this is a dangerous affair and it is not permissible to be lackadaisical with regards to innovation and its people, whatever that may be.  [Source: At-Tabdee Wat-Tafseeq Wat Takfeer.

Why Did Didsbury Mosque Admin Invite Nouman Ali Khan The Jaahil Revolutionary?!

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

Abu Qilaabah said, “May Allaah fight the poet [an expression of amazement in Arabic] who said: Do not ask about a man, but ask about his companion. For every person guides himself by his companion. This poetry is by Adee bin Zaid, and al-Asma’ee said about it, “I have never seen a line of poetry which resembles the Sunnah more than this saying of Adee bin Zaid.” Al-Ibaanah (2/439)

Abu Hurairah – radiallaahu anhu – said, the Messenger of Allaah said, “A person is upon the deen of his friend, so let each one of you look at whom he befriends.” Saheeh. Refer to Silsilah as-Saheehah of al-Albaani (no.927)

Ibn Mas’ood – radiallaahu anhu – said, “Indeed a person walks alongside and accompanies the one whom he loves and who is like him.” Al-Ibaanah (2/476)

Imaam Al-Awzaa’ee said, “Whoever hides his innovation from us will not be able to hide his companionship from us.” Al-Ibaanah (2/476)

Al-A’mash said, “They (the Salaf) did not used to ask anything more about a person after having asked about three affairs: Who he walks with, who he enters upon (i.e. visits) and who he associates with amongst the people.” Al-Ibaanah (2/478)

Abdullaah bin Mas’ood -radiallaahu anhu – said, “Make consideration of the (regions of the) Earth by the names given to them and make consideration of a person by his companion.” Al-Ibaanah (2/479)

Muhammad bin Ubaid al-Ghulaabee said, “The Ahl ul-Ahwaa (People of Desires) hide everything except their intimate friendship and companionship.” Al-Ibaanah (2/482)

Our Stance: Being Proactive In Order to Protect Ourselves [Muslims] and Our Non-Muslim Neighbours from The Inhuman Ideologies and Devilish Acts of The Jihaadist Terrorists and Their Sympathisers

 

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

Shaikh Uthaymeen [rahimahullaah] stated during a tele-link, on the 28th July 2000:

….Likewise I invite you to have respect for those people who have the right that they should be respected, from those between you and whom there is an agreement (of protection) [i.e. Non-Muslims]. For the land which you are living is such that there is an agreement between you and them. If this were not the case they would have killed you or expelled you. So preserve this agreement, and do not prove treacherous to it, since treachery is a sign of the hypocrites, and it is not from the way of the Believers.

And know that it is authentically reported from the Prophet that he said : “Whoever kills one who is under an agreement of protection will not smell the fragrance of Paradise.”

Do not be fooled by those sayings of the foolish people: those who say: ‘Those people are Non-Muslims, so their wealth is lawful for us [i.e. to misappropriate or take by way of murder and killing].’ For by Allaah – this is a lie. A lie about Allaah’s Religion, and a lie in Islamic societies.

O my brothers. O youth. O Muslims. Be truthful in your buying and selling, and renting, and leasing, and in all mutual transactions. Because truthfulness is from the characteristics of the Believers, and Allaah – the Most High – has commanded truthfulness – in the saying of Allaah – the Most High – “O you who believe – fear and keep you duty to Allaah and be with the truthful.”

And the Prophet encouraged truthfulness and said : “Adhere to truthfulness, because truthfulness leads to goodness, and goodness leads to Paradise; and a person will continue to be truthful, and strive to be truthful until he will be written down with Allaah as a truthful person“.

And he warned against falsehood, and said : “Beware of falsehood, because falsehood leads to wickedness, and wickedness leads to the Fire. And a person will continue lying, and striving to lie until he is written down with Allaah as a great liar.”

O my brother Muslims. O youth. Be true in your sayings with your brothers, and with those Non-Muslims whom you live along with – so that you will be inviters to the Religion of Islaam, by your actions and in reality. So how many people there are who first entered into Islaam because of the behaviour and manners of the Muslims, and their truthfulness, and their being true in their dealings. [end of quote]

Indeed, terrorist acts, whether perpetrated in Muslim or Non-Muslim countries are a handiwork of the devil. The Scholars- Shaikh Fawzaan, Shaikh Rabee, Shaikh Ubaid, Shaikh Muhammad Bin Haadi, Shaikh Abdullaah al-Bukhaari and many others have always condemned those who perpetrate terrorist acts; rather the scholars hold that those who plot and plan these inhumane acts are to be reported to the authorities. Therefore, Muslim communities must be at the forefront of stamping out these non-Islamic acts that are done falsely in the name of Islam. The Prophet Muhammad [peace and blessings be upon him] stated: ‘’Whoever sees an evil, let him change it with his hand. If he is not able to do that, then let him change it with his tongue [by speaking]. And if he is not able to do that, then let him [hate it] with his heart, and that is the weakest of faith.’’ (Reported by Muslim)

The Scholars have stated that forbidding evil with the hand is done by the governments and the authorities, so they hold and punish and imprison the evil doers. If they withhold from this duty, it does NOT fall into the hands of the citizens to take the law into their own hands. Rather they remain patient. As for speaking against the evil in terms of refuting the false ideologies, then that it for the scholars and the people of knowledge, not for ignorant, and there has never been a time in the history of Islam, except that the scholars have spoken out against evil ideologies and doctrines as a safeguard for Islam, and this will not stop up until the final Hour is established. As for the general person then he forbids only in accordance to his knowledge and ability in line with the rulings of the true scholars of the Sunnah based upon the Qur’aan and the Sunnah. As for hating with the heart, then this for the one who recognizes evil, but does not have the knowledge nor the ability to speak against this, so he distances himself from it and keeps away from it.

Therefore, as it relates to the terrorists, then it is well-known that their evil and inhumane acts are condemned by the Muslim scholars based upon the texts of the Qur’aan and authentic Prophet narrations. So both, a Muslim student of knowledge and the general person is to inform the authorities of those that incite or plan terrorist acts. And this is from the aspect of forbidding evil and thereby earning the reward of Allaah [The Most High].

Another reason why these terrorists and their ideology must be stamped out is due to the fact that they are innovators who have attributed to Islaam, that which Islam is free of, and it is impermissible to accommodate them or defend them or protect them, due to the statement of the Prophet [salallaahu alaihi wassallam], ‘’Whoever innovates or accommodates an innovator, then upon him is the curse of Allaah, His Angels and the whole of mankind.’’ (Reported by Bukhaaree and Muslim). And there is not a shadow of a doubt from an Islamic perspective, that these terrorist ideologies are innovations and these perpetrators are innovators, and it is not permissible to protect them or give them refuge.

One can recognize the ideology of the these evil doers from certain matters that their lectures and discussions always revolve around, from them is that they always call for rebellion and revolution in the Muslim lands and against the Muslim rulers; they declare the Muslim rulers and those who work in the apparatus of government to be apostates; they praise the suicide bombers and terrorists and insurgencies in Iraaq, Palestine and other places and continually justify their actions; they may praise the bombings of 9/11 in New York, 7th July bombings in London or the Madrid bombings. These discussions of theirs may not necessitate that they themselves will organize or carry out terrorist acts but this speech of theirs incites others towards violence. Remember it only takes two or three young men (or women) who have been affected to go out and wreak havoc. The Messenger of Allaah (salallaahu alaihi wassallam), mentioned these renegades (known as the Khawarij) in a narration, ‘’If I am alive when they appear, I will slaughter them with the slaughtering of Aad.’’ And Aad was a tribe mentioned in the Qur’aan that was punished by Allaah for their evils and transgressions. He also stated, ‘’They are the worst of Allaah’s creation under the sky.’’ There are many, many other narrations of the Prophet and his Companions describing them, to the extent that Shaikhul-Islaam Ibn Taymiyyah and Imaam an-Nawawee, two great scholars of the middle ages, stated the consensus of the great Scholars of the early generations of Islaam that these renegades must be prevented and fought against.  So when one looks at the activities of these people such as the killing of men, women and children, Muslim and non-Muslim alike, one sees that they are indiscriminate in their murderous acts.

After what has been mentioned above one can see why the Scholars of Salafiyyah have issued verdicts calling people to inform the authorities if they know of anyone inciting or planning terrorist acts.  There is NO doubt that those make a link between terrorism and what they term as ‘’The Wahhaabis’’, intending by that the Salafis, have made a mythical link based upon fallacies and falsehood. The great Scholar Muhammad Ibn Abdul-Wahhaab (died 1206AH), after whom his adversaries invented the derogatory term ‘Wahhaabi’ for anyone who studied his works – then this Scholar was the most fervent in his opposition to deviation and deviant ideologies. Rather the Salafis, whom the opposers term as Wahhaabis, have been at the forefront of combating the takfeeri, Jihaadi and Terrorist ideologies, for decades. And this refutation of the Salafi scholars against these groups was not just a mere response to modern-day events but rather a religious obligation upon them regardless of prevailing circumstances.

So Syed Qutb, the father and reference point of the modern-day Jihadist-terrorist movements, was refuted by the Salafi Scholars for his call to assassinations and violent revolution decades ago and again in the early nineties by the likes of the Salafi scholars such as Shaikh Bin Baaz, Shaikh Bin Uthaimeen and especially in great detail by Shaikh Rabee bin Haadee al-Madkhalee who authored several books in exposition of Syed Qutb. Shaikh Bin Baaz warned and exposed the evil doctrine of Usamah bin Laden back in the early nineties, whilst the Islamic political groups were in praise of him. Sayyid Abul Ala Maududi is another reference point for the modern day violent politically motivated groups, yet the Salafi Scholars such as Shaikh Rabee al-Madkhali, Shaikh Ubaid al-Jaabiree, Shaikh Hammaad al-Ansaaree exposed his errors and warned against his approach.

Another example is the warning of the Salafi Yemeni Scholar Muqbil bin Haadee against the HAMAS of Palestine whilst the latter were supporting terrorist attacks on civilian buses in Israel. We also have the Scholarly Salafi stance against Hizbollah of south Lebanon and former leader of Iran, Khomeini such as the statements of Shaikh Bin Baz, Shaikh Bin Uthaimin, Shaikh Ahmad an-Najmi and others. Shaikh Ibn Uthaimeen in his now published explanation of ‘Riyaadhus-Saaliheen’ well over fifteen years ago showed his clear abhorrence at the suicide bombings in Palestine. So this is the clarity with which the Salafis speak and have always spoken. Over a thousand years of Salafi authorship, from the time of the disciples of the Prophet until this day, the Scholars of Sunnah and Salafiyyah have been refuting the false ideologies, whether extremist or negligent – Whereas the people of deviation will respond based upon political expediency, but the underlying ideology in support of revolution and suicide attacks remains.

The well-known Salafi students in the UK and the Salaficentres are very proactive in combating the ideology of the terrorist groups. See links:
