In The Name of Allaah, The Most Merciful, The Bestower of Mercy.
Imaam As-Sadi [rahimahullaah] said that Shaikhul Islaam Ibn Taymiyyah [rahimahullaah] said: Whoever accepts the statements of the atheists is one of two men: either he is ignorant of their reality or he is a wrong doer who desires haughtiness and corruption in the earth, or he is one who combines both traits. This was the trait of the followers of Fir’awn about whom Allaah said: [فاستخف قومه فأطاعوه إنهم كانوا قوما فاسقين – Thus he [Fir’aun (Pharaoh)] befooled and misled his people, and they obeyed him. Verily, they were ever a people who were Fasiqun (rebellious, disobedient to Allah)]. [Surah Az-Zukhruf. Aayah 54]
Shaikh Abdur Razzaaq Al-Badr [hafidhahullaah] said, “It is not possible for a sensible person to accept the statements of these people because their corruption is very clear. Therefore, none accepts their statements except either a person who is unaware of their reality, rather he only hears adorned speech because the atheists plot through beautified speech and thus an ignorant person is deceived; or he is a wrong doer who knows that the atheists are upon falsehood but he desires haughtiness and corruption in the earth, or he is one who combines both traits.
