[1] Anonymous Shayaateen – at Wikipedia – define so-called Mad’khalism

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

Allah [The Most High] said:

وَكَذَٲلِكَ جَعَلۡنَا لِكُلِّ نَبِىٍّ عَدُوًّ۬ا شَيَـٰطِينَ ٱلۡإِنسِ وَٱلۡجِنِّ يُوحِى بَعۡضُهُمۡ إِلَىٰ بَعۡضٍ۬ زُخۡرُفَ ٱلۡقَوۡلِ غُرُورً۬ا‌ۚ وَلَوۡ شَآءَ رَبُّكَ مَا فَعَلُوهُ‌ۖ فَذَرۡهُمۡ وَمَا يَفۡتَرُونَ

And so We have appointed for every Prophet enemies – Shayaateen (devils) among mankind and jinns, inspiring one another with adorned speech as a delusion (or by way of deception). If your Lord had so willed, they would not have done it, so leave them alone with their fabrications.” [Soorah Al-An’aam: Ayah 112]

Vikipedia’s Shayaateen wrote, “Madkhalism is a strain of Quietist thought within the larger Salafist movement based on the writings of Sheikh Rabee-al-Madkhali, characterised by monarchism and loyalty to secular authoritarian governments in the Arab world. Arab states have generally favored Madkhalism due to its support for secular forms of government as opposed to other strains of Salafism, and Madkhalism’s decline in Saudi Arabia has been connected with a decline in support for secular forms of government in the Muslim world”. [End of quote]

This classification of a so-called strain within Salafiyyah known as Madkhalism is a ruse concocted by the Shayaateen among Salafiyyah’s sworn foes. They are unable to present concrete evidence to confront the sound Salafi methodology and its upright scholars, therefore they resort to lies, fantasy, delusions, and slander. This term was concocted by ahlul bidah (the Qutbiyyah, Ikhwaanees and their ilk) to discredit a great scholar of this Ummah called Rabee Bin Haadi Al-Madkhali [may Allah preserve him]. Read about this great scholar in the article compiled by Shaikh Abu Khadeejah [may Allah preserve him]: https://abukhadeejah.com/biography-of-ash-shaykh-al-allamah-rabi-ibn-hadi-al-madkhali-and-the-praise-of-the-scholars-for-him/

Second, Shayaateen at Wikipedia are unable to present any credible, unequivocal knowledge-based proof that Al-Allaamah Rabee is guilty of initiating a single Bidah. The Shaikh challenged them as follows, “Do you take revenge against these Salafiyyoon and nickname them with these nicknames only because they hold onto the Book of Allah and the Sunnah of the Messenger of Allah [peace and blessings of Allah be upon him]? What is the bidah that the Salafiyyoon have in order for them (i.e. the false accusers) to say Mad’khaliyyah, Jaamiyyah?” (1) There is no such thing as Mad’khalism nor a quietist train in Salafiyyah. Read:

Third, the claim that so-called Madkhalism favours dictatorial rulers is nothing more than an attempt by the Khawaarij to hide or misconstrue the sound methodology transmitted in the Sunnah regarding how a Muslim should deal with rulers, whether pious or sinful. Read:

Fourth, regarding the claim that so-called Madkhalism is “Characterized by monarchism and loyalty to secular authoritarian governments in the Arab world, and Arab states have generally favored Madkhalism due to its support for secular forms of government as opposed to other strains of Salafism”, this is just another desperate attempt by the khawaarij, Qutubiyyah, and other extremists to confuse two very significant issues, namely: how to deal with a ruler who rules by secular law, and rulership itself.

Fifth, regarding the pathetic statement that so-called “Madkhalism’s decline in Saudi Arabia has been connected with a decline in support for secular forms of government in the Muslim world”, this is definitely the statement of an idiot who knows very little about Salafiyyah, a pseudo analyst, a Munaafiq or who hater who has now embark upon a smear campaign in secret. Read: https://salaficentre.com/2021/02/10/believers-bahaviour-towards-muslim-rulers-advise-given-in-private-supplicate-for-them-and-refrain-from-rebellion-so-beware-of-spiteful-foreign-instigators-and-some-dangerous-social-media-networ/

Indeed, the sound methodology that Al-Allaamah Rabee propagates is the same that Imaam Abdul Azeez Bin Baaz, Imaam Muhammad Ibn Saalih Al-Uthaymeen, Imaam Al-Albaanee, and others have advocated, and not a single one of them advocates Takfeer, rebellion, demonstrations, and turmoil in Muslim lands. This so-called decline of so-called Madkhalism is nothing more than a desperate attempt by the shayaateen to make it appear as if the methodology preached by Al-Allaamah Rabee in dealing with rulers is unique to him, when, in fact, everything the Shaikh says about rulers is what other upright Salafi scholars say.

Al-Allaamah Saaleh al-Fawzaan [may Allah preserve him] stated: “We know that the khawaarij are those who hold that they can renounce obedience (to the ruler). They hold that the ruler is not given the oath of allegiance or that it is not binding upon the people to maintain their oath of allegiance to him when he becomes sinful, and they (also) declare the Muslims to be disbelievers for committing major sins. So if they adopt this school of thought and there arises neither uproar nor killing, then they are left alone, advised, and given clarification in the hope that they may repent. If they cause uproar and manifest their strength, it then becomes obligatory for the Muslims (i.e. the ruler’s army) to fight them to avert their evil”. (2)

Al-Allaamah Saalih al-Fawzaan also stated, “There are different types of khawaarij: Among them are those who carry weapons, those who speak out like the one (i.e. Dhul-Khuwaysirah) who said to the Messenger, “Be Just,” those who write, and the one who believes in his heart but does not speak or do anything, but has the belief of the khawaarij in his creed. However, some are worse than others”. (3)

So, based on Al-Allaamah Saalih al-Fawzaan’s clarification regarding the Muslim’s relationship with rulers and refutation of the Khawaarij, which is the identical clarification offered by all Salafi Imaams, such as Abdul Azeez Bin Baaz, Al-Albaanee and Muhammad Ibn Saalih al-Uthaymeen, will the Shayaateen at Wikipedia concoct a so-called strain within Salafiyyah called Fawzanism?!

Indeed, there is nothing left to say to the Shayaateen at Wikipedia other than that whoever among us is lying or hiding the truth regarding what they have written about so-called Makhalism and Al-Allaamah Rabee, then may Allah’s curse be upon the liar. If they are truthful, then call Allah to witness and invoke the curse of Allah upon the liar.
