In The Name of Allaah, The Most Merciful, The Bestower of Mercy.
إِن يَتَّبِعُونَ إِلَّا ٱلظَّنَّ وَمَا تَهۡوَى ٱلۡأَنفُسُۖ
They follow but a guess and that which they themselves desire.
The one who is deprived of sound Imaan and the sound creed revealed by Allah, the Lord of the worlds, then their state of affairs is one of two; corruption of Knowledge or Corruption of Intent. The first occurs as a result of following supposition and the second occurs as a result of desires, or the person may combine both. (1)
Hasan Hasan used terminology that highlighted his Al-Jahl al-Murakkab when he associated Jihadism, extremism, and militancy with the terms Sunni and Salafi in a piece he wrote against Al-Qaida, Jabhat An-Nusrah, and their like among the khaarijites. He stated, “Ahrar al-Sham, a Salafi-jihadist group close to Jabhat al-Nusra”.
In the above statement, he attributed the devilish methodology of Jihadists to Salafiyyah! Indeed, this proves beyond a shadow of a doubt that he is afflicted with Al-Jahlul Murakkab in this affair. Imaam Muhammad Bin Saaleh Al-Uthaymeen [may Allaah have mercy upon him] said, “Which one is more repugnant- Al Jahlul Baseet (the type of ignorance which shows that the person knows nothing about a particular affair) or Al Jahlul Murakkab (the type of ignorance which shows that a person understands something in a manner contrary to what it is in reality- neither knows nor knows that he does not know)?” He answered: Certainly, there is no doubt that Al-Murakkab is more repugnant”. (2)
Indeed, the clear proofs will show that those who attribute the Jihadist satanic methodology to Salafiyyah and pure Sunniyyah are too arrogant to accept that they are either liars or completely unable to distinguish between these affairs.
Hasan Hasan said: “Sunni jihadism has been characterized by transnational terrorism, suicide bombing, and ex-communication”.
Response to the above: Imaam Barbahaaree [may Allah have mercy upon him] said, “It is not permitted for a man to say, ‘So and so is a person of the sunnah’ until he knows that he combines the characteristics of the Sunnah, so it is not said of him, ‘a person of the Sunnah’ until he combines all the Sunnah'”. Al-Allamah Salih Al-Fawzan [may Allah preserve him] commented on the above statement of Imam Barbahaaree saying: “Until he knows that he (i.e. the one praised or recommended) combines the characteristics of the Sunnah”, The characteristics of the Sunnah are creed, knowledge, and adherence to the (path of the) As-Salaf As-Salih (the pious predecessors). But if there is nothing in him except a single trait of the (sunnah), he is not regarded to be from Ahlus Sunnah on the basis of a single characteristic or one thing, then what about the one who has nothing from that?

Distinction Between Terrorism of The Jihadists and The Sound Understanding of Jihaad In The Salafi Methodology
True Sunniyyah’s Stance Towards Suicide Bombing?
Distinction Between The False Excommunication Employed by the Terrorists And The Stance of True Sunniyyah and Salafiyyah?
Distinction Between Extremism and Negligence?
Allah Warns Against Extremism And Negligence By Abu Hakeem
The False Categorisation of Salafis Into Jihadists, Militants?
Jabhat al-Nusra has nothing to do with Salafiyyah: Read Takfiris on Steroids (1): ISIS Declares Regional Leader of Rival Faction (al-Nusrah) an Apostate and Kills Him
Finally, we say to Hasan Hasan, may Allah guide you to the right path and grant you the ability to repent; otherwise, your affair is with Allah as a result of your fraudulent analysis in which you attribute Salafiyyah and pure Sunniyyah to the satanic methodology of militants, jihadists, and terrorists. Your dishonest and deceptive analysis reveals what is in your perverted intellect and heart.
