In The Name of Allaah, The Most Merciful, The Bestower of Mercy.
Indeed, one may ask, “Why respond to this Hasan Hasan?!”
We say, Indeed, by Allaah this man is a vile slanderer who seeks to defile the name of Salafiyyah and the Salafiyyoon. Whilst discussing the satanic methodology of the Khawaarij [ISIS and their Ilk], he sought to associate them with Salafiyyah, such as when he stated, “Ahrar al-Sham, a Salafi-jihadist group close to Jabhat al-Nusra”. The wicked slanderer also said, “The Isis ideology is generally viewed as identical to al-Qaida’s or the Saudi version of Salafism – adherence to fundamental Islamic tenets – and so there does not seem to be a serious effort to study it more closely”.
The above is enough proof to show that this man a vile and obstinate slanderer and we have already dealt with this in the following articles:
Hasan Hasan – the vile slanderer against Salafiyyah – said that one of the Khaarijites of ISIS said:
“In the videos we produce, you see the sentence ‘deal with them in a way that strikes fear in those behind them’, and that verse speaks for itself. One more thing: the prophet told the people of Quraish, ‘With slaughter I came to you’”. [End of quote]
Brief Observation On The Above Statement:
Firstly, indeed, if Hasan Hasan transmitted this statement without making any mention of Salafiyyah in his article, then indeed he would have been freed from slander, but his hatred of Salafiyyah consumed his sick heart and thus he said, “Ahrar al-Sham, a Salafi-jihadist group close to Jabhat al-Nusra”. The wicked slanderer also said, “The Isis ideology is generally viewed as identical to al-Qaida’s or the Saudi version of Salafism – adherence to fundamental Islamic tenets – and so there does not seem to be a serious effort to study it more closely”. So, alongside all the madness he reported about the Khaarijites of ISIS, he also ascribed their affiliates to Salafiyyah.
Secondly, the statement “With slaughter I came to you”.
This above statement is found in a hadeeth graded ‘Hasan’ by Imaam Al-Albaanee [rahimahullaah] in Saheeh Mawaarid – that Abdullah Ibn Amr Ibn Aas [radiyallaahu-anhumaa] was asked about the worst thing he saw from the Quraysh against the Messenger of Allaah [sallal laahu alayhi wasallam], so he said:
“I was present when their notables met together one day in al-Hijr. They spoke about Allaah’s Messenger [sallal laahu alayhi wasallam] and said, ‘We have never exercised patience in anything similar to that which we are exercising patient regarding this man. He has declared us fools, reviled our forefathers, criticised our religion, split our ranks and insulted our gods. Indeed, we have exercised patience regarding him in a great affair – or they stated some statement to that effect. So while they were engaged in that discussion, Allaah’s Messenger [sallal laahu alayhi wasallam] appeared and kept on walking until he touched the corner [of the Ka ‘bah, where the Black Stone is]; then he went past them as he performed Tawaaf around the Kabah. When he went past them, they made fun of some of the statements he was uttering, and I could see from [the expression] on his face that it [offended him]. Then he [sallal laahu alayhi wasallam] carried on and when he went past them the second time, they made fun of him in the same manner and I could see from [the expression] on his face that it [offended him]. Then he [sallal laahu alayhi wasallam] carried on and when he went past them the third time, they made fun of him in the same manner. Then he [sallal laahu alayhi wasallam] said, “O Quraish! Listen to me. By the One in Whose hand is Muhammad’s soul, I have brought slaughter to you”. The people were very shocked by his statement to the extent that there was not a man amongst them except that he froze, as if there was a bird on his head, and those who uttered the harshest statements to him [sallal laahu alayhi wasallam] – prior to that – began speaking to him with the best words, saying, “O Abul Qaasim! Go away, go away, because by Allaah you have never been an ignorant person”. So he [sallal laahu alayhi wsallam] left them.
Then the next day, they gathered at al-Hijr and I was with them. They said to one another, “You stated how impatient you are becoming with him, what you have heard about him and what he is saying, then as soon as he said something that alarmed you, you left him alone”. Whilst they were in that state, Allaah’s Messenger [ sallal laahu alayhi wasallam] appeared and they all rushed towards him together, surrounded him and said, “You are the one who said such and such” – making reference to what has reached them regarding the criticism he directs at their gods and religion. He [sallal laahu alayhi wasallam] said, “Yes, I am the one who said that”. Then indeed I saw a man amongst them grab the neck of his garment, so Abu Bakr as-Siddeeq [radiyallaahu-anhu] got up to defend him and said whilst crying, “Would you kill a man just because he says, ‘My lord is Allah?’ Then they left him [sallal laahu alayhi wasallam] and that was the worst incident of aggression I saw from the Quraish. [Ref 1]
In another hadeeth reported by Imaam Bukhaari, Urwa Bin Zubayr [raimahullaah] said, “I asked Abdullah ibn Amr [radiyallaahu-anhuma], ‘What was the worst thing the Mushrikoon did to Allaah’s Messenger [sallal laahu alayhi wasallam]?’ He said, ‘I saw Uqbah Bin Abee Mu’ayt coming to the Prophet [sallal laahu alayhi wasallam] while he was praying and put his sheet around his neck and squeezed it hard. AbuBakr [radiyallaahu-anhu] came and pulled Uqba away from the Prophet [sallal laahu alayhi wasallam] and said, “Do you intend to kill a man just because he says, ‘My Lord is Allaah’, and he has brought forth clear signs (proofs) from your Lord?’”. [Ref 2]
Thirdly, we clearly see in the above narrations that the Prophet [sallal laahu alayhi wasallam] was greatly harmed by the Quraish notables.
Fourthly, regarding the statement of the Prophet [sallal laahu alayhi wasallam], “O Quraish! Listen to me. By the One in Whose hand is Muhammad’s soul, I have brought slaughter to you”;
Shaikh Saaleh Aala Ash-Shaikh [hafidhahullaah] said:
These people [i.e. Khaarijites] come along and say things and doubts- that the Prophet[sallal laahu alayhi wasallam] said, “I have brought you slaughter”… “I have brought you slaughter”. So they [i.e khaarijites] understand from the word “Slaughter” to mean cutting off the head. This is an understanding that is very far away from what is correct. And from the proofs that it is far away from what is correct is that it has not been implemented [in this manner] by anyone from the Muslim nation amongst the companions of the Prophet- to whom this statement was made – up until our present time when these [khaarijites] implemented it in this manner!
The meaning of the Prophet’s [sallal laahu alayhi wasallam] statement “I have brought you slaughter” is that the Arabs and the disbelievers before Islam used to treat the captive or the enemy in various ways- torture, punishment, humiliation etc. The Prophet [sallal laahu alayhi wasallam] forbade all of that, and said, “I have brought you slaughter”, meaning killing by way of confrontation [i.e. when war takes between combatants]. Slaughter in this context means to kill and encounter [by way of war between combatants] and it does not mean to pull out a knife as it is said or as they assume. Therefore, all that the Arabs used to do with regards to torturing the people before death, cutting off the ears, mutilating the person during war etc, Islam eradicated it; so one thing remained and that is to kill [during war between combatants]. And if the person is not killed, then he is to be honoured, safeguarded, protected and treated, and he has the well-known rulings related to the affair of a captive. This hadeeth has many ramifications and detail explanation [i.e. other than the false understanding derived from it by the Khaarijites]. [Paraphrased.

Finally, we say to Hasan, “After being acquainted with the correct understanding of this hadeeth from a Saudi Salafi Scholar, will you still attribute Salafiyyah to the Khaarijites and Jihaadists?! Do you seek to divide Salafiyyah into groups and parties in order to misguide your readers and slander Salafiyyah?! By Allaah, you have uttered a mighty slander and a filthy statement. May Allaah guide you or protect us from your slanderous tongue Aameen”.
