Part 2: The Affair of Markaz Tawheed (Stoke On Trent), Greenlane and Ikhwaaniyyah In Manhaj! [Using Statements of Upright Scholars as Smokescreen]


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

Allaah (The Most High) said: [وَلَا تَلْبِسُوا الْحَقَّ بِالْبَاطِلِ وَتَكْتُمُوا الْحَقَّ وَأَنتُمْ تَعْلَمُونَ – And mix not truth with falsehood, nor conceal the truth while you know (the truth)]. [Surah Al-Baqarah. Aayah 42]

Imaam Ibnul Qayyim [may Allaah have mercy upon him] said, “Allaah forbade (us) from mixing truth with falsehood, and thus leading to concealment of the truth. Mixing truth with false is by mixing the two until one of them is confused for the other. This is forgery and deceit by way of which what is made apparent is the opposite of what it is in reality. Likewise, when truth is confounded with falsehood, the culprit manifests falsehood in the image of truth and speaks with a statement that carries two meanings- a correct meaning and false meaning, so the listener is under the illusion that the speaker intends the correct meaning, whilst he (i.e. the speaker) intends the corrupt meaning”. [Badaa’i at-Tafseer Al-Jaami Limaa Fassarahu Al-Imaam Ibnul Qayyim’ Vol 1, page 124]

The specific hizbi individual or specific blazing hizbiyyoon at Markaz Tawheed [Stoke On Trent] stated, whilst specifically accusing Salafipublications of extremism and the Maraakiz in general, “Shaykh Abdul Muhsin states about this extremism in them ‘there is no doubt that the obligation upon the People of the Sunnah in every time and place is mutual affection, compassion in what is between them, and cooperation upon reverence and godliness. Surely from what one regrets in this time is what occurred of alienation and differing from some of the People of the Sunnah; from what was caused by some of them being occupied with disparaging, cautioning [against], and boycotting others. The obligation was that their efforts be collectively directed at others from the disbelievers and the People of Heresies hostile to the People of the Sunnah; that they be mutually affectionate and compassionate with regards to what is between them, mentioning one another with gentleness and lenience.” Then the blazing hizbi or hizbies stated, “Below is a list of Scholars that they praised and blind followed excessively and then refuted and started to call them by their names and derogatory titles. Are these the mannerisms that they have been cultivated with, it is no wonder they have no issue with the people of innovation teaching their children. 1) Shaykh Falih Al Harbi, 2) Shaykh Fawzee Al Atharee, 3) Shaykh Ali Hassan Al Halabi, 4) Shaykh Saleem Al Hilali, 5) Shaykh Falah Ismail, 6) Shaykh Yahya Al Hajoori, 7) Shaykh Muhammad ibn Haadee, 8) Shaykh Uways at Taweel'”. [End of deceiver’s quote]

Observation A: The above quote – by that specific individual or individuals – from Al-Allaamah Abdul Muhsin [may Allaah preserve him] is nothing else but a smokescreen utilised for falsehood by the blazing hizbiyyoon at Markaz Tawheed and their ilk. Firstly, it is well-known that the affair regarding Rifqan Ahlus Sunnah Bi-Ahlis Sunnah included Al-Maribi and his ilk, and Al-Allaamah Abdul Muhsin spoke based on what he knew. When Al-Allaamah Ubaid Bin Abdillaah Al-Jaabiri [may Allaah preserve him] was asked about the book, he stated: “I have not read the book of Shaykh Abdul-Muhsin. I know from experience that Ahlul Ahwaa [the people of desires] take whatever chance they can from some of the affairs that arise from some of Ahlus Sunnah, then they twist it for their own benefits whereas it is not really of benefit to them. Shaykh Abdul-Muhsin, according to the title that I have come to know, is actually advising Ahlus Sunnah in relation to Ahlus-Sunnah. And this is a matter that is agreed upon by all of the Shaykhs that we have known, and we are upon this as well. However we need to know who are Ahl us-Sunnah, not everyone who claims the Sunnah is actually from it.[note: such as the hizbees who are now using this book for their own agendas!] Secondly, Shaykh Abdul-Muhsin and others, when he comes to know of a person of innovation he will show rejection upon him and his innovation [note: like he did with Safar and Salman, Ar’oor, Hasan Maalikee etc!] Thirdly, this is a rule, the one who knows is a proof against the one who does not know, so those who spoke of Abul-Hasan spoke with evidences, proofs so clear, like the apparentness of the sun in the daytime, and they criticised his speech and actions, so those who made jarh upon him and established the evidences against him, then we have to take this from them otherwise we are people of desires. And that Scholar who has not seen what the others have seen, then we do not follow that Scholar who was ignorant of the condition of of the one who was disparaged. Then the Shaykh gives some examples:

1. Example of Shaafi’ee’s praise for Ibraaheem ibn Muhammad ibn Abee Yahyaa, but scholars criticised him and said he is not reliable. So Shaafi’ee praise was not accepted and nor did this praise help the one who was declared reliable by him [note: just like Shaykh Abdul-Muhsin’s speech for Abul-Hasan does not benefit him in anyway, because he is a misguided, deceptive Ikhwaanee Mubtadi!]

Example of Safar and Salman, when we (i.e. the Shaykhs of Madinah) would criticise them with proof, but Shaykh Ibn Baz and Shaykh Ibn uthaymeen and others from the Major Scholars did not say anything about them. But after 4 years, the declaration came from the Hay’ah convicting them (of errors) and advising that they be restrained.

2. Example of Shaykh al-Albaanee used to praise Safar and Salman, give them tazkiyah and so on, but after 6 or 7 years, he spoke against them, and he admitted that “we had been hasty and the people of Madinah were more knowledgeable of the people”.

Then the Shaykh said, “distribute this discussion”.

Then after being asked about those who spread this book the Shaykh said, “This person is a person of fitnah, either a person of fitnah or one who does not know (the situation)…” Then the Shaykh added to this, “…especially when such a person spreads it amongst the general people (at large), the likes of me (i.e. the Shaykh) and you (i.e. students of knowledge), from those people who understand could read the book, but as for one who spreads it by the hundreds, to the general and specific people, in accordance with what I have said, then this is either one who is heedless (does not know) or is a person of fitnah (saahibu fitnah).” https://safeshare.tv/x/cOLObITEbR

Shaikh Abu Iyaad [may Allaah preserve him] dealt with this affair in this link: Regarding Abu al-Hasan al-Ma’ribee al-Ikhwani: Why Shaykh Rabee’ Was Correct and Shaykh Abdul-Muhsin al-Abbaad Was Wrong (Yet Both Are Rewarded): http://www.themadkhalis.com/md/articles/nvskb-why-shaykh-rabee-was-correct-and-shaykh-abdul-muhsin-al-abbaad-was-wrong-yet-both-are-rewarded.cfm

This is the reality of the affair, therefore, beware when the hizbiyyoon seek to use statements of the upright scholars, because they are well known for deception and ambiguity in order to confound truth with falsehood. They have utilised these statements of the scholars to pursue an Ikhwaani Manhaj in the subject matter of cooperation.
