Two Criminals Refute Each Other and Support Each Other- [Brief Reflection On The State of The Khabeeth Muhammad Hijaab and The Raafidi!]

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

Shaikh Abu Khadeejah [may Allaah preserve him] stated – in his refutation against the Khabeeth Muhammad Hijaab – that Hijaab was rebutted by the Raafidi, so a misguided one utilised falsehood to rebut another misguided one! Indeed, this statement of Shaikh Abu Khadeejah reminds us of what Shaikhul Islaam ibn Taymiyyah [may Allaah have mercy upon him] as follows: “The people of bidah, such as the khawaarij, initiate an innovation in religion, excommunicate the one who opposes them and declare lawful the shedding of his blood. These people refute the innovation of each other, whilst he (i.e. the refuter) is also an innovator. So he refutes a bidah with another bidah and falsehood with falsehood”. (1)

Firstly, Subhaanallaah! A Raafidi Khabeeth refutes Hijaab with falsehood, whilst Hijaab is also upon falsehood, rather – as Shaikh Abu Khadeejah stated – Hijaab attempted to argue based on logic instead of referring back to the Kitaab and the Sunnah and then ended up agreeing with the Raafidi’s view that he can revile Aa’isha and Mu’aawiyah [may Allaah be pleased with them] and referring to the Raafidi as Habeebee, and thus the two criminals – Hijaab and the Raafidi – supported each other. Allaah [The Exalted] said: [وَكَذَٲلِكَ نُوَلِّى بَعۡضَ ٱلظَّـٰلِمِينَ بَعۡضَۢا بِمَا كَانُواْ يَكۡسِبُونَ – And thus We do make the wrong doers (supporters and helpers) one to another (in committing crimes etc.), because of that which they used to earn]. [Surah Al-An’aam. Aayah 129]

Imaam Al-Barbahaaree [may Allaah have mercy upon him] said, “He who loves the deeds of a people, good or bad, is just like the one who commits them”. Al-Allaamah Saaleh Al-Fawzaan [may Allaah preserve him]commented on the above statement of Imaam Al-Barbahaaree as follows, “He who loves the deeds of a people is just like one who commits them; so if those (deeds) are good he gets a reward similar to theirs, and if those (deeds) are bad he bears the burden and sin similar to theirs. We seek Allaah’s refuge from that! And due to this, it has been reported concerning the one that wishes to be like the scholar who teaches the people good, that he will get a reward similar to that of (that Scholar). And the one that wishes to be like the rich person who spends his wealth in the path of Allah, (then) he will receive a reward similar to that of (that rich person) in accordance with his intention. Likewise, the opposite of this is (with regards) to the one who wishes to be like the criminal and the people of sin, (and) wishes to be their partners in sin or give support to their views and hold it to be true, (then) he is like them even if he did not commit an act similar to theirs, (but) solely (due to the fact that) he held their views to be correct and took their side. [It-haaful Qaaree Bitta’liqaat Alaa Sharhis Sunnah Lil Imaam Barbahaaree’ Vol: 2. page 113-114]

Secondly, even if Hijaab defended the Sunnah, he is not one to be associated with until he abandons his bidah, as Imaam Ahmad [may Allaah have mercy upon him] said, “Do not sit with ahlul kalaam even if they defend the Sunnah”. (2)

Al-Haafidh Ibn Abdul Barr [may Allaah have mercy upon him] said, “The people upon the correct understanding of the religion and those who cling to the (authentic) narrations of the [Messenger (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) and that of the pious predecessors] in all the regions are agreed that ahlul kalaam are people of Bidah and deviation. (All the scholars of the authentic Sunnah) do not consider them to be from those who have been given sound understanding in the religion; rather the scholars are those who adhere to the (authentic) narrations of the [Prophet and that of the pious predecessors] and they have been given sound understanding in that”. (3)

Finally, we say to those duped by the Khabeeth Muhammad Hijaab that Imaam Al-Awzaa’ee [may Allaah have mercy upon him] said, “O Muslims! Fear Allaah, accept the advice of the sincere advisers and the admonition of the admonishers. know that this knowledge is religion, so beware of what you do, from whom you take your religion, the one you follow and the one with whom your religion is safe, because indeed all the proponents of religious innovation are all falsifiers, liars and sinners. They are not cautious – neither do they pay attention nor do they fear, and together with that they are not to be trusted that they would not distort what you hear. They say what they do not know with regards to what they disapprove and when proclaiming their lies; but Allaah (knows, hears and sees) what they do. Therefore, be cautious of them, trust them not, reject them and avoid them, because indeed this is what your earlier scholars did and commanded, and likewise the righteous ones who came thereafter. Be careful of opposing Allaah and being the means to destroying the religion He has ordained – breaking its commands and prohibitions, nullifying and weaking it by respecting the innovators in religious affairs and those who initiate that which is not from the religion, because you know what has been transmitted (i.e. the prohibitions) about respecting or exalting them. And what can be greater respect and exaltation than acquiring your religion from them- following and believing them, drawing close to them and assisting them in enticing the ones they entice and woo to their views and the religion (i.e. religious innovations) they follow. This is sufficient to be regarded as associates of theirs in what they do. (4)
