In The Name of Allah, The Most Merciful, The Bestower of Mercy.
Allah [The Most High] said:
وَتَعَاوَنُوا عَلَى الْبِرِّ وَالتَّقْوَىٰ ۖ وَلَا تَعَاوَنُوا عَلَى الْإِثْمِ وَالْعُدْوَانِ
Help you one another in Al-Birr and At-Taqwa (virtue, righteousness, and piety); but do not help one another in sin and transgression. [5:2]
Imam Ibn Al-Qayyim [may Allah have mercy upon him] said:
All of the Masaalih (things that would bring about benefit and repel harm) for the servants of Allah in this life and the Hereafter—among themselves or in respect to their relationship with their Lord—are contained in this verse. That is because every servant of Allah is faced with two situations and obligations: fulfilling Allah’s obligations or fulfilling obligations owed to Allah’s creation. The obligations owed to the creation include (righteous) association, companionship, assisting one another in what Allah loves, and obedience to Allah, which is the objective of one’s pursuit of happiness and success in the afterlife. There can be no happiness in the afterlife except through Bir and Taqwa because they are the foundation of all affairs of the religion. A deed cannot be deemed an act of obedience to Allah and an act that brings one closer to Allaah unless it is founded on Imaan, such that what leads to the performance of the deed is exclusively due to Imaan – neither (un-Islamic) customs nor desires. It should only be founded on Imaan, with the goal of receiving Allah’s reward and pursuing Allah’s pleasure rather than seeking praise or status. (1)
We ask Allah to include us among those who truly co-operate upon righteousness and piety Aameen.
Abu Makkah said, “Alhamdulilah akhūna Muhammad is upon khair, he’s neither deviated walillaahil Hamd, nor has he gone astray. He continues to study with ulama and is busy with teaching and Da’wah upon ilm, away from the ignorances of Waheed and his Hizbiyyah which is something that doesn’t please Waheed. I ask Allah to continue to guide Muhammad and be in his aid until death reaches him; Aameen”. [End of quote]
After presenting all of his delusions, false comparisons and accusations, distortions, and concealing of the truth, Abu Makkah praises Allah in the aforementioned statement! Amazing is the affair of one who propagates and defends falsehood, and then says, “Alhamdulilah”. Indeed, what has already been revealed in the thorough refutation of him and Mohammad Abdur Razzaaq ought to make him understand that he should instead utter this “Alhadulil lah” after being shown his repugnant ignorance so that others do not follow the same course and thus he bears the blame for leading them astray. https://salaficentre.com/2023/07/29/abu-makkah-and-muhammad-abdur-razzq-watery-manhaj-and-flaccid-constitutions/
The Prophet [peace and blessings of Allah be upon him] said, “Whoever starts a good thing (i.e. something other than bidah and sin) and is followed by others, he will have his own reward and a reward equal to that of those who follow him, without it detracting from their reward in any way. Whoever starts a bad thing (i.e. a bidah, sin, or something that opposes Islam) and is followed by others, will bear the burden of his own sin and a burden equal to that of those who follow him, without it detracting from their burden in any way”. [Reported by al-Tirmidhi, no. 2675]
“Muhammad has not deviated,” Abu Makkah argues.
Response: We inform Abu Makkah that Muhammad has deviated from what is correct in the Fitna of the Musaafiqah. http://www.manhaj.com/manhaj/articles/uyryh-documents-and-resources-for-countering-and-exposing-the-musafiqah.cfm
“He (Muhammad) continues to study with ulama and is busy with teaching and Dawah upon ilm, away from Waheed’s ignorances and his Hizbiyyah, which does not please Waheed,” Abu Makkah argues.
Response: We inform Abu Makkah that many other students are also lecturing, sitting with scholars, and giving Dawah, but they not work in tandem with Ahlul Bidah. It was said to Imaam al-Awzaa’ee [may Allah have mercy upon him], “Indeed a man says, ‘I sit with Ahlus Sunnah and I sit with ahlul bidah’. So, Al-Awzaa’ee said, ‘This man wants to equate truth with falsehood'”. (2)
(Muhammad is) “Away from the Ignorances of Waheed” argues Abu Makkah.
Response: We inform him that Muhammad has deviated from sound knowledge in this Musaafiqah fitna, as well as from the Salaf’s understanding and methodology on not cooperating with Ahlul bidah! Is cooperating with ahlul bidah knowledge and wisdom or ignorance?! Indeed, no sensible person abandons upright Salafiyyoon in the name of keeping away from ignorance and then exposes his heart to those whose company leads to the sickness of the hearts?! Imaam Al-Barbahaaree [may Allah have mercy upon him] reported in Sharhus Sunnah that Imaam Al-Fudayl Ibn Iyaadh [may have mercy upon him] said, “Whoever sits with a person of bidah has not been granted wisdom”. Ibn Abbaas [may Allah be pleased with him] said, “Do not sit with the people of desires (i.e. ahlul bidah), for indeed sitting with them will cause sickness to the hearts”. (3)
Abu Makkah Haunted by Self-incrimination After Making a False Accusation of Hizbiyyah Against Shaikh Abu Khadeejah
First, when it comes to Abu Makkah’s allegation about the so-called “Hizbiyyah of Waheed,” he clearly does not grasp what Hizbiyyah is. Al-Allaamah Rabee Bin Haadi al-Mad’khali [may Allah preserve him] stated, “Bigoted partisanship for a certain idea that contradicts the Qur’an and the Sunnah of the Messenger, and allegiance and hostility based on it, this is Tahazzub [illegal partisanship]. Even if it is not carried out by an organisation, this is still Tahazzub. Regardless of whether it is carried out within an organisation or not, coming up with wrong ideas and rallying support for them constitutes a Hizb”. (4)
Second, one of the distinguishing features of the hizbiyyoon is the collaboration with ahlul bidah, which is what Abu Makkah and his ilk do first and foremost. Third, he and his allies are unable to name even one false idea or concept that Shaikh Abu Khadeejah (may Allah preserve him) concocted, let alone rally people around such a falsehood. And indeed, it is Abu Makkah and his allies who support a person who has committed false Tabdee (Dr. Muhammad Bin Haadi) and attack those who disprove his dishonesty. Al-Allaamah Zayd Bin Haadi Al-Madkhali [may Allah have mercy upon him] stated:
“There is no (unconditional) allegiance except to Allah’s Messenger [peace and blessings of Allah be upon him] because he is infallible and never speaks out of his desires. As for unrestricted allegiance to personalities whether they are correct or mistaken, then indeed this is not permissible for the seeker of knowledge. On the other hand, he should look to such and such Shaikhs as to which of them is upon uprightness and is following the Manhaj of the Salaf. This is the one whom we place our hands on his hands- not out of blameworthy blind following, but rather due to the fact that he is upon the truth. So we agree with him upon truth and follow a singular path in obedience to the statement of Allah [The Mighty and Majestic]:
وَأَنَّ هَٰذَا صِرَاطِي مُسْتَقِيمًا فَاتَّبِعُوهُ ۖ وَلَا تَتَّبِعُوا السُّبُلَ فَتَفَرَّقَ بِكُمْ عَن سَبِيلِهِ
And verily, this is my Straight Path, so follow it, and follow not (other) paths, for they will separate you away from His Path] [6:153]
As for the one who selects Shaikhs, leaders, and guides, whilst being in agreement with them- in what is correct and wrong- to the extent that they do not leave their Manhaj whether they are correct or wrong, then these are the people who bring evil upon themselves and upon others. And if they do not repent, then they are most worthy of being blamed. So the affair-and all praise belongs to Allah- is clear and it is not permissible for a person to be confused regarding this affair. Therefore, we are with those who follow the straight path-we follow a singular path that Allah [The Mighty and Majestic] has commanded us to follow and which the Messenger called us to. None is followed in everything except the Messenger of Allah. As for the people, then indeed they can be correct or mistaken. Indeed, we do not follow them and we do not follow their footsteps solely because they are Shaikhs, Callers to Islam, leaders or guides; rather you should be with the people of the Salafi Manhaj-those who follow the correct Manhaj and correct understanding”. (5)
Indeed, the above speech of Al-Allaamah Zayd Bin Haadi [may Allah have mercy on him] should be written in gold, and there is something very specific about Abu Makkah’s condition in what Shaikh Abu Iyaad [may Allah protect him] has mentioned in this link regarding the types of people in Dr. Muhammad Bin Haadi’s Fitna. http://www.manhaj.com/manhaj/assets/docs/types-of-people-mbh-fitnah.pdf
This is what displeases Shaikh Abu Khadeejah and the Salafiyyoon: the deception that has been wilfully chosen and perpetuated by Abu Makkah in the name of knowledge, guidance, and Salafiyyah.
We ask Allah:
اللَّهُمَّ أَصْلِحْ لِي دِينِي الَّذِي هُوَ عِصْمَةُ أَمْرِي
وَأَصْلِحْ لِي دُنْيَايَ الَّتِي فِيهَا مَعَاشِي
وَأَصْلِحْ لِي آخِرَتِي الَّتِي فِيهَا مَعَادِي
وَاجْعَلِ الْحَيَاةَ زِيَادَةً لِي فِي كُلِّ خَيْرٍ
وَاجْعَلِ الْمَوْتَ رَاحَةً لِي مِنْ كُلِّ شَرٍّ
O Allah! Rectify my religion for me, which is the safeguard of my affairs; rectify my worldly [affairs], wherein is my livelihood; and rectify my Afterlife to which is my return; and make life for me [as a means of] increase in every good and make death for me as a rest from every evil.
