[5] Some Terms Which Ahlul Bidah – Modernists – and Some Militant Secularists Desperately Seek to Attribute to Islaam In Order to Conceal The Reality of Those Deviants Who Propagate Their Ideas

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

Imaam Ahmad [rahimahullaah] said: ‘’I am neither a person of philosophical rhetoric nor do I recognize philosophical rhetoric in anything. [I only recognize] that which is found in the Book of Allaah or in the Sunnah of His Messenger [sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam]’’. [Ref 1]

Imaam Ahmad [rahimahullaah] said: ‘’Do not sit with ahlul kalaam [people of philosophical rhetoric] even if they defend the Sunnah’’. [Ref 2]

Al-Haafidh Ibn Abdul Barr [rahimahullaah] said: ‘’The people upon the correct understanding of the religion and those who cling to the [authentic] narrations of the [Messenger (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam) and that of the pious predecessors] in all the regions are agreed that the people of philosophical rhetoric are people of Bidah and deviation.  [All the scholars of the authentic Sunnah] do not consider them to be from those who have been given sound understanding in the religion; rather the scholars are those who adhere to the [authentic] narrations of the [Prophet (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam) and that of the pious predecessors] and they have been given sound understanding in that.’’ [Ref 3]

Shaikhul Islaam Ibn Taymiyyah [rahimahullaah] said: ‘’There are no philosophers upon right guidance” [Ref 4]

Shaikhul Islaam Ibn Taymiyyah [rahimahullaah] said: ‘’Philosophy is like the flesh of a camel at the top of a mountain; it is not easy to climb the mountain nor is the flesh good enough to justify climbing, nor is the path leading to it easy to follow.’’   He [rahimahullaah] also said: ‘’Islaam does not have philosophers’’. [Ref 5]

Shaikh Muhammad Amaan Al-Jaami [rahimahullaah] said about the term Islamic Philosopher: This term is blindly utilised, therefore do not be deceived by it.  If you hear the term Islamic Philosopher, then know that there is no such thing as Islamic Philosopher. The well-known Raazi [rahimahullaah] was a doctor, but all of them [i.e. him and those like him] were not saved from Philosophy. However, he is not regarded to be from the senior Philosophers, rather he is regarded to be from the scholars of Ilmul Kalaam [i.e. those who sought to establish the Islamic creed based on logical and intellectual arguments and not simply restricting themselves to the Qur’aan, the authentic Sunnah and the understanding of the companions] and regreted following this path at the end of his life. And even though his repentance is not explicit, however he was from those who expressed regret and regret is a type of repentance. [Ref 6]
