In The Name of Allaah, The Most Merciful, The Bestower of Mercy.
Allaah [The Exalted] said:
يَـٰٓأَيُّہَا ٱلَّذِينَ ءَامَنُواْ كُونُواْ قَوَّٲمِينَ لِلَّهِ شُہَدَآءَ بِٱلۡقِسۡطِۖ وَلَا يَجۡرِمَنَّڪُمۡ شَنَـَٔانُ قَوۡمٍ عَلَىٰٓ أَلَّا تَعۡدِلُواْۚ ٱعۡدِلُواْ هُوَ أَقۡرَبُ لِلتَّقۡوَىٰۖ وَٱتَّقُواْ ٱللَّهَۚ إِنَّ ٱللَّهَ خَبِيرُۢ بِمَا تَعۡمَلُونَ
O you who believe! Stand out firmly for Allah and be just witnesses and let not the enmity and hatred of others make you avoid justice. Be just: that is nearer to piety, and fear Allah. Verily, Allah is Well Acquainted with what you do. [Surah Al-Maa’idah. Aayah 8]
Indeed, Usaamah Al-Utaybi [may Allaah guide him or break his back] is one well known for excessive sinful speech. His chaotic behaviour is well known just as Al-Allaamah Ubaid Bin Abdillaah Al-Jaabiree [may Allaah protect him] stated about him to the people of Libya, “As for preventing his harm, by Allaah, neither I nor you can do this. If I had anything to do with it, I would have stopped it”. The guy is excessive and harmful, and this destructive behaviour has been clearly manifested in a statement of his when he stated that those who transmit warning against Shaikh Sulaymaan Ar-Ruhayli’s gathering in Britian are Umalaa (i.e. doing a dirty job on behalf of someone), ahlul bidah, (proponents of innovation in religion), absorbed in the methodology of the Haddaadiyyah, and that amongst them are those concealing the methodology of the Khawaarij, and that from those who warn against this gathering is (Shaikh) Abu Khadeejah, who -according to pottymouth Usamah – is a leader of a Mafia group called Maktabah Salafiyyah, and one who hinders people from the path of Allaah etc.
Indeed, brothers and sisters, if the falsehood and excessive speech, the slanderous and chaotic behaviour of this vile wrong doer (Usaamah Al-Utaybi) never manifested to you in the past, then indeed what he stated above is enough as an example, just as Al-Allaamah Ubaid Bin Abdillaah Al-Jaabiree stated about him, “His affair has reached the point of madness, recklessness and lightmindedness”.
Slander 1: Those -in Britain – who warn against Shaikh Sulaymaan’s gathering are doing the dirty job of others! Rather those who warn against this gathering have done so based on the warning issued by Al-Allaamah Rabee Bin Haadi. Visit link: https://twitter.com/IslamStoke/status/1546118439517011969
Slander 2: Those -in Britain – who warn against Shaikh Sulaymaan’s gathering are ahlul bidah, absorbed in the methodology of the Haddaadiyyah and from them are those concealing the methodology of the Khawaarij! Utaybi did not produce an atom’s weight of proof to show that Salafipublications and the well-known Salafi Maraakiz are upon what he has described, rather what he has uttered is nothing but outright falsehood, malicious slander and excess [may Allaah guide him or break his back]. This is the same behaviour of Dr Muhammad Bin Haadi – the one whom Usaamah defends and on whose behalf he unleashes this vile slander- when Al-Allaamah Rabee Bin Haadi demanded that he produces proof for his accusations, especially the Tabdee he declared against others. Read here: Shaykh Rabiʿ’s request for Shaykh Muḥammad bin Hādī to justify his tabdīʿ of Salafī students and shaykhs and to explicitly name the major scholars he accused of being “affected” and “destroyed” by the “Ṣaʿāfiqah” – one month, no answer: https://twitter.com/abuiyaadsp/status/1018974451269033986?lang=en-GB ]
Then pottymouth Usaamah added – to his vile tirade – the claim that Shaikh Abu Khadeejah [may Allaah protect him from the malicious tongues] is one who hinders people from the path of Allaah and that he is the leader of a mafia group called Maktabah Salafiyyah! Indeed, even though this statement unveils Usaamah’s foolish thoughts and views, but it contains – in addition to his more serious slanders about us being ahlul bidah – a mighty slander. Does this man not fear Allaah for unleashing his vile tongue and passing false rulings based on vain desires?! Allaah said:
[وَٱلَّذِينَ يُؤۡذُونَ ٱلۡمُؤۡمِنِينَ وَٱلۡمُؤۡمِنَـٰتِ بِغَيۡرِ مَا ٱڪۡتَسَبُواْ فَقَدِ ٱحۡتَمَلُواْ بُهۡتَـٰنً۬ا وَإِثۡمً۬ا مُّبِينً۬ا – And those who annoy believing men and women undeservedly, bear on themselves the crime of slander and plain sin]. [Surah Al-Ahzaab. Aayah 58]
Al-Baraa’ah Ibn Aazib [may Allaah be pleased with him] said, “Allaah’s Messenger [peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him] said, ‘Usury has seventy-two doors, the least of which is like a man who goes into his mother [i.e. sexual intercourse]. The worst act of usury is for a man to attack the reputation of his brother”. [Mu’jam al-Awsaṭ 7151. Graded Saheeh Li-Ghayrihee By Imaam Al-Albaanee]
The Prophet [peace and blessings of Allah be upon him] said, “The worst form of usury is the violation of someone’s honour”. “Verily, the worst act of usury is to attack the honour of a Muslim without a just cause”. [Abu Daawud 4876]
“Verily, the worst act of usury is to attack the reputation of a Muslim”- Meaning, the greater in evil and the more severely prohibited is to unleash the tongue against the honour of a Muslim by belittling him, behaving arrogantly towards him and speaking ill against him by way of slander or verbal abuse. This becomes more severe in prohibition because honour is more noble than one’s self and wealth. (1) This [i.e. violating the honour of a Muslim] has been referred to as usury because the transgressor establishes his honour and then goes beyond it, so it is as if he has added an increase that encroaches the boundaries in relation to the honour of a Muslim which is more valuable than his wealth. Al-Qaadhee [may Allaah have mercy upon him] said, “Attacking a Muslim’s honour is to deal with him more than what he deserves of that which is to be said about him or more than what is allowed to be said about him, and this is why it is likened to usury and considered one of its types. Then it is considered worse because it contains more harm and corruption”. (2)
Therefore, brothers and sisters, slander is not be tolerated from this vile Usaamah Al-Utaybi [may Allaah guide him or break his back], especially when such slander is disguised as knowledge. Even though this shameless potty accused us of Bidah, without an atom’s weight of proof, he followed the path of ahlul bidah in issuing judgements based on desires. The Prophet [peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him] said: “The judges are three: one will go to Paradise and two to Hell. A man who knows the truth and judges with it will enter paradise; a man who knows the truth but judges with the opposite of it will enter the fire, and a man who judges for the people based on ignorance will enter the fire”. [Reported by Imaam Abu Dawud 3573]
Shaikhul Islaam Ibn Taymiyyah [may Allaah have mercy upon him] said, “And when it is the case that the one who judges between the people in (affairs) of wealth, blood [i.e. murder cases, physical violence etc] and honour will enter the hell fire if he is not a just scholar, then how about the one who passes judgements – without knowledge and justice – on creeds, religions, the fundamentals of belief, divine knowledge and the general fundamental principles related to different subject matters, as is the case with ahlul bidah wal ahwaa [the proponents of religious innovations and desires]”. (3)
This is what vile potty mouth Usaamah has fallen into by passing judgements against us based on the path of vain desires – a well known behaviour of ahlul bidah, even though we do not follow his satanic footsteps by declaring that he is a Mubtadi; rather it is enough that every sane person can see the precision Al-Allaamah Ubaid Bin Abdillaah Al-Jaabiree’s observation when he stated about pottymouth Usaamah, “His affair has reached the point of madness, recklessness and lightmindedness”.
In conclusion, Shaikh Abu Iyaad [may Allaah protect him] once said to a resentful hater as follows: “So I say: Lamont Battle is an ahmaq (fool) and his hamaaqah (foolishness) becomes clearer and clearer to everyone by the day. I will not stoop so low so as to ask him to recant and apologise to me because, judging by his behaviour so far, he does not have that sense of justice and it appears that Shaytaan has gained mastery over his nafs in this issue. So all I will say is that may Allaah’s curse be upon the liar. Whoever is lying, may Allaah’s curse be upon the liar. And if he is truthful, then let him call Allaah to witness and invoke the curse of Allaah upon the liar. I am free and innocent of his evil slander and I have no concern whatsoever with his personal or private affairs”. Likewise, we say the same thing to vile Usaamah – an ahmaq (fool), whose hamaaqah (foolishness) becomes clearer and clearer to everyone by the day! May Allaah guide him or break his back Aameen.
