Ghausia’s – [Soofee Masjid – Stoke On Trent] – Return to Celebration of The Bidah of Mawlid! [Will Markaz Tawheed Aid Them to Raise Funds Again or Sincerely Strive to Refrain From All Deeds That Are Tantamount to Aiding Ahlul Bidah?!]

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

Imaam Al-Barbahaaree [may Allaah have mercy upon him] stated, “From the Sunnah is that you do not help anyone in disobedience to Allah, whether they be parents or any of the creation. There is no obedience to a human in disobedience to Allah and no one is to be loved for that; rather all of that is to be hated for [the sake of Allah], the Blessed and Most High”.

Al-Allaamah Saaleh Al-Fawzaan [may Alaah preserve him] stated: This is a fundamental principle from the fundamental principles of Ahlus Sunnah Wal Jamaa’ah that has been derived from the statement of the [Prophet (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam)] that, “There is no obedience to the creation in disobedience to the Creator”. And he [sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam] said, “Obedience is only in that which is good”. Therefore, whoever commands disobedience to Allah is not to be obeyed. He is not to be obeyed in disobedience, whether your father, mother, or from the closest of the people to you, a ruler or a King. He is not to be followed in disobedience. Allaah [The Exalted] stated about the Jews and Christians when they followed [their Rabis and Monks] in disobedience:

[ٱتَّخَذُوٓاْ أَحۡبَارَهُمۡ وَرُهۡبَـٰنَهُمۡ أَرۡبَابً۬ا مِّن دُونِ ٱللَّهِ – They (Jews and Christians) took their rabbis and their monks to be their lords besides Allaah (by obeying them in things which they made lawful or unlawful according to their own desires without being ordered by Allaah)]. [Surah At-tawbah, Aayah 31]

And regarding the statement of Imaam Barbahaaree, “Whether they be parents or any of the creation”, Allaah [The Exalted] said about parents:

وَوَصَّيۡنَا ٱلۡإِنسَـٰنَ بِوَٲلِدَيۡهِ حَمَلَتۡهُ أُمُّهُ ۥ وَهۡنًا عَلَىٰ وَهۡنٍ۬ وَفِصَـٰلُهُ ۥ فِى عَامَيۡنِ أَنِ ٱشۡڪُرۡ لِى وَلِوَٲلِدَيۡكَ إِلَىَّ ٱلۡمَصِيرُ
وَإِن جَـٰهَدَاكَ عَلَىٰٓ أَن تُشۡرِكَ بِى مَا لَيۡسَ لَكَ بِهِۦ عِلۡمٌ۬ فَلَا تُطِعۡهُمَا‌ۖ وَصَاحِبۡهُمَا فِى ٱلدُّنۡيَا مَعۡرُوفً۬ا‌ۖ وَٱتَّبِعۡ سَبِيلَ مَنۡ أَنَابَ إِلَىَّ‌ۚ َ

And We have enjoined on man (to be dutiful and good) to his parents. His mother bore him in weakness and hardship upon weakness and hardship, and his weaning is in two years give thanks to Me and to your parents, unto Me is the final destination. But if they (both) strive with you to make you join in worship with Me others that of which you have no knowledge, then obey them not, but behave with them in the world kindly, and follow the path of him who turns to Me in repentance.

Allah [The Exalted] said:

[وَوَصَّيۡنَا ٱلۡإِنسَـٰنَ بِوَٲلِدَيۡهِ حُسۡنً۬ا‌ۖ وَإِن جَـٰهَدَاكَ لِتُشۡرِكَ بِى مَا لَيۡسَ لَكَ بِهِۦ عِلۡمٌ۬ فَلَا تُطِعۡهُمَآ‌ۚ إِلَىَّ مَرۡجِعُكُمۡ فَأُنَبِّئُكُم بِمَا كُنتُمۡ تَعۡمَلُونَ – And We have enjoined on man to be good and dutiful to his parents, but if they strive to make you join with Me (in worship) anything (as a partner) of which you have no knowledge, then obey them not. Unto Me is your return, and I shall tell you what you used to do]. [Surah Al-Ankabut. Aayah 8]

There is no obedience to the creation in disobedience to the Creator, regardless who that may be, even if he is the closest of the people to you, such as the two parents; then what about other than them! [An Excerpt from It-haaful Qaaree Bitta’liqaat Alaa Sharhis Sunnah Lil Imaam Barbahaaree. 2/297-299]

The above is the first reminder to ourselves and Markaz Tawheed that none is to be aided in disobedience to Allaah, especially with regards to affairs of the infallible Aqeedah and Manhaj ordained by Allaah [The Exalted]. We clarified the fact that co-operating with the Soofees to raise funds for their project is clearly a violation of this fundamental principles. See here:

Firstly, instead of quickly recanting this mistake, some individuals at Markaz Tawheed desperately fished in the murky waters and attempted to falsely claim that a brother at Masjid Abi Hurairah/Masjid Al-Furqan is guilty of wrongdoing in his business dealings. See here:

Secondly, prior to the above incidents, some individuals at Markaz Tawheed attempted to dupe the unsuspecting people by claiming that co-operation with ahlul bidah is permissible if it is bring about a religious benefit, and they also sought to back this falsehood by claiming that there are upright scholars who sit with ahlul bidah. We responded to this falsehood in this link:

Thirdly, the same organisation or Masjid (Ghausia Masjid, Cobridge) that was recently aided by Markaz Tawheed through a funfair – together with Ikhwaanees, Hizb Tahreer and other people of bidah – to raise funds have once again openly demonstrated what they are upon. See here:

The Prophet’s Birthday — Are the Eid Milad Celebrations from Islam and the Sunnah? By Shaikh Abu Khadeejah [may Allaah preserve him]:

Eid Milad an Nabi – The Origin & Explanation – By Shaikh Abu Iyaad [may Allaah preserve him]:

Concerning the History of the Mawlid: Between the Imitation of the Companions and the Innovation of the Baatinee Ismaa’eelee Shi’ite:

Bidah Hasanah:

Therefore, what excuse can Markaz Tawheed offer at present after it has become absolutely clear that co-operating with ahlul bidah is forbidden as well as the fact that the people (Ghausia Masjid- Soofees) they’ve aided through that funfair have once again opely procliamed what they are upon! Therefore, beisides the fact that it is incumbent upon them to refrain from co-operating with ahlul bidah in future, they are also required to distance themselves from everyone who co-operates with ahlul bidah, such as the likes of Greenlane. See here:

Finally, we remind Markaz Tawheed as follows: “All of you hold onto the Rope of Allaah [i.e. The Qur’aan and authentic Sunnah]- Allaah will aid you in this and make you like the sun; return to the understanding of the righteous predecessors, and it is, as I said to you, transmitted (and established) in your presence. This is a challenge to those who oppose this. We are challenging ahlul bidah wal ahwaa [the proponents of innovation in religious affairs and followers of desires] in their creed and politics. We say, between us and you is the (path, understanding of the) pious predecessors and books (of the pious predecessors). Ahmad [i.e. Imaam Ahmad] used to say to the proponents of innovation in religious affairs, “Between us and you are the funerals (i.e. whose funeral will be attended by ahlus sunnah in great numbers)”. We say (i.e. at present), “Between us and you are the books (of the pious predecessors)- the books are present!

Allaah said to His Messenger [peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him]: [قل فَأْتُوا بِالتَّوْرَاةِ فَاتْلُوهَا إِنْ كُنْتُمْ صَادِقِينَ – All food was lawful to the Children of Israel, except what Israel made unlawful for himself before the Taurat (Torah) was revealed. Say (O Muhammad ): “Bring here the Taurat (Torah) and recite it, if you are truthful”]- So they bring the Torah and you proof them to be upon falsehood. We bring the books of the pious predecessors – the Qur’an, the Sunnah, the books of Al-Bukhari, Muslim, Abu Dawood, at-Tirmidhi, an-Nasaa’ee, and what was authored by Ahmad and others; we bring them (to prove) those who are on the path of these (pious predecessors) and those who turn away and oppose them. Just as Allaah challenged the Jews to bring the Torah, so the Torah was brought and they were exposed them, (likewise), we challenge these people to bring the books of the pious predecessors, so that the innovator in religious affairs is exposed, and to clarify who the deviants are- whether us or them? Are they able to challenge? Can they open their mouths like this? We fill our mouths with courage – challenge everyone who says that we are upon other than methodology of the pious predecessors. We, by Allaah, call to the methodology of the pious predecessors- to the Book of Allaah and the Sunnah of Allaah’s Messenger [peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him]. We use the book of Allaah and the Sunnah as proof for our beliefs, our acts of worship, dealings with rulers and their subjects, in dealing with the groups and sects. As for the others, they are upon tricks, deception etc By Allaah, you will not find with them anything but tricks and manipulating the emotions of youth”. [Paraphrased. Listen here:

The warning of Ahlus-Sunnah wal-Jamā’ah from associating and mixing with the People of Desires and Ahlul-Bid’ah ―Shaikh Rabee’ bin Hādi Al-Madkhali

From Statements of The Imaams Regarding Obligation of Hating and Detesting Ahlul Bidah – [By Shaikh Khaalid Adh-Dhufayri] Part 1

We ask Allaah to grant us Thabaat, protect us from bidah, hizbiyyah, obstinacy, misconceptions and sinful compromise. We ask Allaah to grant Markaz Tawheed and their ilk the Tawfeeq to abandon ahlul bidah completely, including Ihyaa Turaath and the blazing hizbiyyoon of Greenlane Aameen.
