Markaz at-Tawheed’s – (Stoke On Trent)- Claim “Taqleed is Haraam” Briefly Scrutinised!

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

Allaamah Rabee Bin Haadee Al-Mad’khalee [may Allaah preserve him] said:

Indeed, rejecting the statements of scholars (i.e. their sound verdicts) – by way of statements whose apparent meaning is sound, but those who utilise them intend falsehood and evil – has become widespread nowadays. “I do not make Taqleed of such and such (person)”. We say to him (i.e. the one who utters this statement), “Who commands you to make Taqleed if you are a student of knowledge?! However, if that scholar about whom you say, “I do not make Taqleed of him” has truth with him, then is it permissible to reject the truth through this illusion which you call Taqleed and intend falsehood by way of it?! I warn the youth against despicable behaviour. It has become rife amongst the common people and prevents them from good manners, (sound) religion and character. (1)

The Admin of Markaz At-Tawheed claim that they are people who adhere to proofs, but we find that their claim is in need of close scrutiny. Does this absence of Taqleed include all affairs or is their Manhaj an exception to this claim?! Indeed, their is no doubt that they are selective in their application of this affair because we find them allying with those upon hizbiyyah, yet when the clear evidences are presented they turn a blind eye. Our brother Abu Haleemah (Na’eem Bashir) when he reminded us of this affair – less than hour ago- regarding the behaviour of the Admin at Markaz at-Tawheed, saying, “One minute Taqleed is Haraam and then when it comes to Jarh Wat Tadeel they decide they are upon the way of those who don’t get involved”.

Adnaan Abdul Qaadir – Student of the Mubtadi (Abdur Rahmaan Abdul Khaaliq) and Affiliate of Ihyaa Turaath) – a Guest at Markaz at-Tawheed (Stoke), Masjid Al-Furqan (Manchester) and Muhammadi Masjid (Bradford)]

Till When Will You Peddle The Bold-Faced Lie That Issues Between (Masjid al-Furqan/Masjid Abi Hurairah) and Markaz at-Tawheed Is Personal and Not Related to Manhaj?!
