In The Name of Allaah, The Most Merciful, The Bestower of Mercy.
The people of misguidance – amongst the opponents of Imaam Muhammad – and the opponents of the Salafi dawah have fabricated many lies, and one of those lies is that Imaam Muhammad [rahimahullaah] makes Takfeer of the Muslims, declares it lawful to fight them, and that he hates the Awliyaa and Saaliheen. They transgress the limits in their fabrications and lies against him- against those who follow his path, against the Saalafi Dawah, against the Dawah of Tawheed and the truthful manner in which the sound path is to be followed. They perpetrate these repugnant deeds in order to hinder the people from the true religion of Allaah, which Allaah sent His Messenger with and sent down in His Books, especially the message of the seal of the Prophets and Messengers [i.e. Muhammad – (alayhis salaatu wassalaam)]. So, Imaam Muhammad, his children and the scholars of the Dawah [rahimahumullaah] embarked upon rebutting the falsity of these fabrications through sufficient and appropriate clarifications- that they do not make Takfeer of the one who falls into Shirk or Kufr until after establishing the proofs against him and clearly clarify and explain the straight for him. Indeed Imaam Muhammad [rahimahullaah] did his utmost in giving sincere advice and clarification in many of writings and letters [or treatises] to the one who is far away and the one who is close, especially to the people of Najd and the Hijaaz. Indeed, I [i.e. Shaikh Rabee] came across twenty-six letters in which he clarified his Dawah with proofs and evidences, and nullified the Shubuhaat [i.e. affairs that are made to resemble the truth but are falsehood in reality] and the Abaateel [falsities]. And from those letters [or treatises], I present one of them to whom it might reach amongst the Muslims and take from it – in this particular discussion- that which fulfils the objective.
