Brief Rebuttal to Abu Makkah’s Recent Misleading Comparisons
In The Name of Allah, The Most Merciful, The Bestower of Mercy.
Allah [The Exalted] says:
يَـٰٓأَيُّہَا ٱلَّذِينَ ءَامَنُواْ كُونُواْ قَوَّٲمِينَ بِٱلۡقِسۡطِ شُہَدَآءَ لِلَّهِ وَلَوۡ عَلَىٰٓ أَنفُسِكُمۡ أَوِ ٱلۡوَٲلِدَيۡنِ وَٱلۡأَقۡرَبِينَۚ إِن يَكُنۡ غَنِيًّا أَوۡ فَقِيرً۬ا فَٱللَّهُ أَوۡلَىٰ بِہِمَاۖ فَلَا تَتَّبِعُواْ ٱلۡهَوَىٰٓ أَن تَعۡدِلُواْۚ وَإِن تَلۡوُ ۥۤاْ أَوۡ تُعۡرِضُواْ فَإِنَّ ٱللَّهَ كَانَ بِمَا تَعۡمَلُونَ خَبِيرً۬ا
O you who believe! Stand out firmly for justice, as witnesses to Allah; even though it be against yourselves, or your parents, or your kin, be he rich or poor, Allah is a Better Protector to both (than you). So follow not the lusts (of your hearts), lest you may avoid justice, and if you distort your witness or refuse to give it, verily, Allah is Ever Well-Acquainted with what you do. [Surah An-Nisaa. Ayah 135]
Allah [The Most High] says:
يَـٰٓأَيُّہَا ٱلَّذِينَ ءَامَنُواْ كُونُواْ قَوَّٲمِينَ لِلَّهِ شُہَدَآءَ بِٱلۡقِسۡطِۖ وَلَا يَجۡرِمَنَّڪُمۡ شَنَـَٔانُ قَوۡمٍ عَلَىٰٓ أَلَّا تَعۡدِلُواْۚ ٱعۡدِلُواْ هُوَ أَقۡرَبُ لِلتَّقۡوَىٰۖ وَٱتَّقُواْ ٱللَّهَۚ إِنَّ ٱللَّهَ خَبِيرُۢ بِمَا تَعۡمَلُونَ
O you who believe! Stand out firmly for Allah and be just witnesses and let not the enmity and hatred of others make you avoid justice. Be just: that is nearer to piety, and fear Allah. Verily, Allah is Well-Acquainted with what you do. [Surah Al-Maa’idah. Ayah 8]
Previous Refutations Against Abu Makkah Suffices
A brief rebuttal to recent misleading comparisons made in the name of defending Muhammad Abdur Razzaq [may Allah rectify his affair]
This is a brief response to Abu Makkah [may Allah guide him], a fervent admirer of Dr. Muhammad Bin Haadi, whose thirst for vengeance against Shaikh Abu Khadeejah [may Allah preserve him] is motivated solely by a strong personal desire to protect lies and twist reality. In his recent pitiful attempt to defend Muhammad Abdur Razzaaq, he demonstrated yet again his terrible comprehension of basic principles and then hastened to deliver a verdict based on that. In this brief response, we’ll demonstrate- by Allah’s Will – that he is afflicted with Al-Jahlul Murakkab because he thinks that he knows but his understanding is the polar opposite of what he believes is correct. To underscore this reality, we quote Shaikh Al-Islam Ibn Taymiyyah [ may Allah have mercy upon him], as translated by Shaikh Abu Iyaad [may Allah preserve him], “It is necessary that a person has [comprehension of and correct application of] universal principles [of jurisprudence] to which particular issues are returned so that he speaks with knowledge and justice, and thereafter, that he is acquainted with particular issues, as to how they arose [and became issues], otherwise he will remain upon lies and ignorance with respect to the particular issues and ignorance and oppression with respect to the universal principles, and great corruption will result therefrom.” Majmūʾ al-Fatāwā (19/203) https://t.me/abuiyaadsp
Abu Makkah stated: “The questioner asks Allah to keep him under the tutelage of Waheed Alam, and what a pitiful tutelage this is since Waheed Alam is almost Quranically illiterate and can barely express himself in the language the Quran was revealed in”. [End of quote]
Response: In this statement of his, Abu Makkah desperately attempted to strengthen his criticism by using one of the spider-web arguments used by those proponents of falsehood who attack upright people of Sunnah due to grammatical mistakes in the Arabic language. However, what he either misunderstands or seeks to conceal is that the Salafiyyoon are not blind to the fact that this affair is not a criterion for distinguishing between truth and falsehood. What is there of commendation and virtue in one Muslim above another if the one who is more competent in his recitation of the Qur’an has deliberately deviated completely from sound Aqeedah or Manhaj or in some of the affairs related to sound Aqeedah and Manhaj?! Didn’t the Prophet [peace and blessings of Allah be upon him] inform us that the Khawaarij are dogs of the hellfire, even though he also said that one will belittle his recitation of the Qur’an compared to theirs?! Therefore, what virtue or advantage does Abu Makkah possess over others because of his Qur’anic recitation while he assists an oppressor (Dr. Muhammad Bin Haadi) who pronounces Tabdee without proof?! Has Allah not forbidden oppression, or has Abu Makkah not pondered those Ayaat?! What virtue or advantage does Abu Makkah have over others because of his Qur’anic recitation while defending Muhammad Abdur Razzaaq (one who co-operates with Hizbiyyoon and the Musaafiqah)?!
Second, not a single scholar or elder student who has praised Shaikh Abu Khadeejah mentions this as a cause to judge his credibility and comprehension of the Qur’an, the authentic Sunnah, and the understanding of the pious predecessors. So, do we disregard the observations of upright scholars and senior students of knowledge in favour of the opinions of a desperate hater drowned in Al-Jahlul Murakkab in this affair?! Read here: https://abukhadeejah.com/those-who-criticise-the-people-of-sunnah-due-to-mistakes-in-arabic-grammar-whilst-they-themselves-are-upon-falsehood/
Abu Makkah stated: “He (i.e. the one who asked Shaikh Abu Khadeejah the question about Muhammad Abdur-Razzaaq) then goes on to describe how akhūna Muhammad was close to ‘Mashayikh’ but yet deviated, and then asks Waheed – in a strange soothsayer-like questioning – how these things occur and if there were things to suggest that he would deviate”. [End of quote]
Response: In the above statement, Abu Makkah attempted to portray himself as an articulate speaker while failing to recognise that he made a judgement without a sound basis. Indeed, his companion was judged based on what is apparent, and no soothsayer-like questioning is asserted in this case, save by those who lack sound understanding. Therefore, pay attention to this beautiful narration: Umar Ibn Al-Khattaab [may Allah be pleased with him] said: “People were (sometimes) judged by the revealing of a Divine revelation during the lifetime of Allah’s Messenger but now there is no longer any more (new revelation). Now we judge you by the deeds you practice publicly, so we will trust and favour the one who does good deeds in front of us, and we will not call him to account about what he is really doing in secret, because Allah will judge him for that; but we will not trust or believe the one who presents to us an evil deed even if he claims that his intentions were good”. (1)
Imam Abdul Azeez Bin Baaz [may Allah have mercy upon him] said: “Whoever exhibits good, it is accepted from him and positive good suspicion is held about him. And if he exhibits evil, it will be held against him and a (justified) evil suspicion is held about him”. (2)
Abu Makkah’s companion was evaluated based on what is apparent since he supports and calls to those who defend Dr. Muhammad Bin Haadi. (refer to Appendix I)
Abu Makkah said: “Without that poor questioner’s dire state receiving any attention, and not connecting this poor man’s heart to Allah or reminding him of something that would bring his Deen benefit, Waheed immediately begins by spewing his venom towards Muhammad”. [End of quote]
Response: In the above statement, Abu Makkah attempted to portray the situation as a pointless inquiry, as though the questioner received no benefit and that Shaikh Abu Khadeejah never pointed him in the direction of what is advantageous. However, the truth is that Shaikh Abu Khadeejah did give information about the issue involving Abu Makkah’s companion which is helpful to every seeker of truth regarding this affair. There is no question that Abu Makkah desperately wants to conceal what a person seeking clarity should know. (refer to Appendix II)
Abu Makkah said:
Response: In opposition to those who support sound Salafi stances against Dr. Muhammad Bin Haadi and Dr. Sulaymaan ar-Ruhayli, Abu Makkah is fiercely disputing that his colleague was not judged based on what is obvious regarding his dubious affiliations and refusal to take sound stances. Al-Allaamah Rabee Bin Haadi Al-Mad’khali [may Allah preserve him] said: “If you become aware that you reject the truth when it comes from one direction and embrace falsehood when it comes from another direction while acting as though it is the truth, then you should be aware that your heart is sick”. (3)
Is there anything else, in light of what is evident, that may have influenced Abu Makkah’s companion to side with the Musaafiqah, aside from either of the two diseases of the heart, Shubuhaat or Shahawaat?! Is there anything more to establish aside fame-seeking or ignorance from his companion’s promotion of the Musaafiqah and those who support them?!
Abu Makkah said:
Response: First, Dhul Khuwaysirah was a Munaafiq who questioned the integrity of the Messenger—the one who does not speak based on his own desires but rather receives revelation from Allah. Has Abu Makkah not heard what the Prophet said during this incident “Don’t you trust me though I am the truth-worthy man of the One in the Heavens, and I receive the news of Heaven (i.e. Divine Inspiration) both in the morning and in the evening?” [Saheeh Al-Bukhari 4351]
As a result, it is impossible to draw a parallel between Dhul Khuwaysirah’s treatment of the Messenger and that of a person who judged Abu Makkah’s companion based on what is obvious. The two cases cannot be compared since Dhul Quwaysirah slandered Allah’s Messenger, whereas Abu Makkah’s companion is judged on the basis of his corrupt affiliations. Indeed, anyone with even a modicum of common sense knows that this is just another misleading analogy used by Abu Makkah in an effort to feign truth with a false comparison. (for more detail about Dhul Khuwaysirah, see Appendix III)
Second, as for Abu Makkah’s statement about “laughingstock” when Shaikh Ak recites the Quran, then, certainly, we have previously transmitted what is necessary regarding the behaviour of proponents of falsehood towards upright adherents to the Sunnah in this matter. But we’ll add one narration that we’re all familiar with. “The one who is proficient with the Qur’an will be with the noble and righteous scribes (the angels), and the one who reads it and stumbles over it, finding it difficult, will have two rewards”.
There isn’t a single one of us except that someone else outperforms us or can point out mistakes or shortcomings in our Qur’an recitation, but this isn’t a basis for distinguishing between Tawheed and Shirk, Sunnah and Bidah, sound unity and hizbiyyah, sound and corrupt Al-Walaa Wal Baraa’ah, even though Abu Makkah is grasping at straws in this matter.
Abu Makkah said, “What does 25 years mean when this is your case? People become scholars in 25 years! Empires are built in 25 years! But indeed Waheed has built an empire, one that he is the head of, one that wasn’t gained through ilm, instead attained via Tazkiyah-peddling”.
First, it is incredible that Shaikh Abu Khadeejah [may Allah protect him from the tongues of the enviers] has been endorsed by those particular senior scholars, such as Al-Allamah Ubaid Bin Abdillah Al-Jabiri [may Allah have mercy upon him], Al-Allamah Rabee Bin Haadi [may Allah preserve him], Al-Allamah Abdullah Al-Ghudiyaan [may Allah have mercy upon him] and the older students of knowledge in the UK and America, but they have been unable to reveal his Tazkiyah-peddling for the past 25 years!!! Indeed, it is definitely tantamount to foolishness if one thinks that a person who is well-known to scholars and thousands of Salafiyyoon in different places can get away with Tazkiya-peddling. O Abu Makkah! “The reality of foolishness is to place something in other than its rightful place”. [Sharh Saheeh Muslim By Imaam An-Nawawi. 18/136] O Abu Makkah! “A fool sees the impossible as possible”. [Tas’heel an-Nadr By Al-Maawardee. page 5]
And regarding this slander, we remind Abu Makkah that the Messenger [peace and blessings of Allah be upon him] said: “Verily, the worst act of usury is to attack the honour of a Muslim without a just cause”. [Abu Dawud 4876]
As for his assertion about Shaikh Abu Khadeejah not reaching the level of scholars after 25 years, this is simply another ludicrous statement of this deluded individual; rather, we can name numerous upright students of knowledge who have not been declared scholars, even though they started seeking knowledge before Shaikh Abu Khadeejah. In addition, Abu Makkah is essentially ignorant of an important affair behind the quest for knowledge. First, neither Abu Makkah nor any of us (common people) can determine the level of knowledge attained by any single scholar or senior student; rather, we return to the precise recommendations given by scholars to the students. Second, Abu Makkah and his ilk should pay attention to what is stated by al-Allaamah Saalih Aala Ash-Shaikh in this link: https://salaficentre.com/2021/08/14/not-aware-of-benefit-i-have-acquired-from-seeking-knowledge-disheartened-slow-learner-receives-tremendous-advice/
The mention of an empire built by Shaikh Abu Khadeejah gives us a clear indication that Abu Makkah cannot accept the fact that besides being abandoned due to his association with the Musaafiqah, he is also not valued in the manner that Shaikh Abu Khadeejah is valued by Al-Allaamah Rabee, Al-Allaamah Ubaid Al-Jaabiri, the senior students of knowledge in the Uk and America and the Salafiyyoon. “Die in your rage,” we tell him.
Response: This is a conversation on Twitter between Muhammad Abdur Razzaaq [may Allah open his eyes to reality] and someone else, whilst he encouraged people to attend the gathering of the Musaafiqah in the company of Dr. Sulaymaan Ar-Ruhayli. Muhammad stated, “Utter falsehood. Did the Sahaabah say ‘O I’m not going to attend the circle of the Messenger bcos there’s a Munaafiq there?'”
Amazing is the similarity between Abu Makkah and Muhammad Abdur Razzaaq! The Messenger [peace and blessings of Allah be upon him] said: “The souls are troops collected together. They come close upon what they recognize, and they differ upon what they reject”. [Al-Bukhaari 3109]
It is apparent that one of the characteristics they share is their fondness for ludicrous comparison. Indeed, the Messenger and the Sahaabah were upon clarity due to that which Allah revealed to him about the Munaafiqoon. As for Dr. Sulaymaan and the ones who invited him, all of them were upon something blameworthy because they defend Dr. Muhammad Bin Haadi, so how can a sensible person attend such a gathering to increase the numbers of Musaafiqah – those defending a person (Dr Muhammad Bin Haadi) who passed an oppressive judgement of Tabdee without proof!

Appendix II: Al-Allaamah Rabee Bin Haadi al-Mad’khali [may Allah preserve him] stated about the people of falsehood, “All the trials, splitting, and (blameworthy) differing came from the proponents of falsehood and trials. They do not keep quiet, they spread their falsehoods in their newspapers, magazines, and audio tapes, while wishing that the voice of truth should be silent. In their view, the voice of truth is what should be silent and the voice of falsehood should be raised and spread on the earth! Do they remain silent?! The proponents of falsehood do nor remain silent, neither abate nor slow down”. [Al-Ijaabaat Al-Jaliyyah Anil Qadaayaa Al-Manhajiyyah. pages 28-29]
Appendix III: Shaikh Al-Islaam Ibn Taymiyyah [may Allah have mercy upon him] said: The Qur’an has indeed stipulated that this man [i.e. Dhul Khuwaysirah] was from the hypocrites due to the statement of Allah:
وَمِنْهُمْ مَنْ يَلْمِزُكَ فِي الصَّدَقَاتِ
And of them [i.e. the Munaafiqoon] are some who accuse you (O Muhammad) in the matter of (the distribution of) the alms. [Surah at-Tawbah. Aayah 58] – Meaning they find fault with you and speak ill of you. [As-Saarim Al-Maslool. Page 228-229]
Abu Makkah’s ridiculous misrepresentations and misleading comparisons in his so-called response to Shaikh Abu Khadeejah demonstrate that he suffers from compounded ignorance and lacks basic principles in this matter of judging individuals based on what is obvious. Likewise, after it becomes apparent to the reader that Abu Makkah wanted to defend a person whose mistakes are as obvious as the midday sun, all the texts he used for that purpose were mentioned in an effort to muddle truth with untruth. The texts he utilised are truth without a doubt, but he utilised them to twist reality and beautify the affair of Muhammad Abdur Razzaaq even though reality speaks for itself. Allah [The Exalted] 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. Ayah 42]
Imaam Ibnul Qayyim [may Allah have mercy upon him] said, “Allaah forbade (us) from mixing truth with falsehood, thus leading to concealment of the truth. Mixing truth with false is by mixing the two until one of them is confused with 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 the 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 a false meaning, so the listener is under the illusion that the speaker intends the correct meaning, whilst he intends the corrupt meaning. [An Excerpt from “Badaa’i At-Tafseer Al-Jaami Limaa Fassarahu Al-Imaam Ibnul Qayyim”. 1/124]
