Masjid As-Sunnah’s Masjid Committee And Admin [Cheetham Hill- Manchester] Are Shelterers of Mubtadi’ah [Innovators]

In The Name of Allaah, The Most Merciful, The Bestower of Merrcy.

Shaikhul Islaam Ibn Taymiyyah [rahimahullaah] stated, “The Imaams of Ahlus Sunnah Wal-Jamaaa’ah – the people of knowledge and Eemaan- are possessors of Knowledge, Justice and Mercy. They know the truth in a manner in which it is [obligated upon] them- in agreement with the Sunnah and free from innovations. They deal justly with those who are outside of it [i.e. those outside the truth and the Sunnah] even if they [i.e. such people] oppress them, as Allaah [The Most High] said: [وَلَا يَجْرِمَنَّكُمْ شَنَآنُ قَوْمٍ عَلَىٰ أَلَّا تَعْدِلُوا ۚ اعْدِلُوا هُوَ أَقْرَبُ لِلتَّقْوَىٰ  -And let not the enmity and hatred of others make you avoid justice. Be just: that is nearer to piety (5:8)] They are merciful towards the creation. They wish goodness for them, guidance and knowledge. They do not set out wishing evil for them; rather when they [i.e. those Imaams of the Sunnah] punish them, clarify their mistakes, ignorant [views, statements and beliefs] and wrong doing, their intention is to clarify the truth, having mercy for the creation, enjoining good and forbidding evil, in order that the entire religion is established sincerely [for the worship of Allaah alone and adherence to the Sunnah of His Messenger], and so that the word of Allaah is made the uppermost. [Ar-Radd Alal Bakriy page: 490]

This is what the scholars did regarding the affair of the innovators Ali Al-Halabi, Abul Hasan Al-Maribi and Muhammad Al-Maghraawi, but they have persisted upon falsehood. Likewise, Masjid As-Sunnah’s Admin have persisted in sheltering these innovators. Indeed, there are those people – due to either naivety, short-sightedness, desires or ignorance – who do not distinguish the true upholders of the Salafi Methodology in the UK from those who defend and promote Mubtadi’ah [i.e. innovators]. Regardless the situation – lockdown or not – the Salafiyyoon of Al-Markazus Salafi and elsewhere do not change their stances against Ahlul Bidah, therefore, Al-Markazus Salafi still declares its freedom from the staunch followers of Al-Halabi, Al-Maribi and Al-Maghraawi at Masjid As-Sunnah [Cheetham Hill]. The Masjid Committee and Trustees of Masjid As-Sunnah are well known shelterers of the Mubtadi’ah mentioned and highlighted above.

Finally: As for offering financial assistance to those who are affected by the lock down – whether they are Muslims or Non-Muslims, then indeed be charitable, but never use the platform of ahlul bidah at Masjid As-Sunnah or elsewhere to do so because they will use that as a means to calling to their bidah and persist upon their corruption. May Allaah grant us firmness and justice in all circumstances Aameen.
