Part 4: Ali Halabi’s Long Journey (may Allaah guide him)

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

Abul Wafaa Ibnu Aqeel (rahimahullaah) said: ”Whoever pronounces his creed based upon proofs, then unsteadiness will not remain with him due to the differences of opinion regarding the state of affairs of men.’’

 

Ali Halabi (The Innovator) and the Fitnah of Abul Hasan Al-Maribi (The Innovator)

Between pages 20-25 in Arabic PDF (revised and read by Al-Allaamah Rabee Bin Haadee al-Madkhalee), the author discusses the Fitnah of Abul Hasan Al-Maribi and the two facedness of Ali Halabi during the Fitnah, which finally led him to deviation. So we will abridge and paraphrase the discussion. For further details download PDF here: http://www.sahab.net/forums/index.php?showtopic=122127

There came about the fitnah of Al-Maribi and his innovations in opposition to the methodology of the Salafus Saaleh (i.e. the pious predecessors). However, before the Fitnah of Al-Maribi became manifested, there were observations on his book titled [Siraaj Al-Wahhaaj], and this took place during the lifetime of the three Imaams [Abdul Azeez Bin Baaz, Muhammad Nasiruddeen Al-Albaanee and Muhammad Bin Saaleh Al-Uthaymeen (rahimahumullaah)].  

Al-Maribi was already promoting his innovations on the subject matter of passing judgments against deviated individuals and the position towards those in opposition to the Book, The Sunnah and understanding of the pious predecessors.  He wished to make this book of his a methodology for the salafis in this time, so he embark upon seeking the recommendations of the major scholars, especially from Imaam Abdul Azeez Bin Baaz (rahimahullaah). Imaam Bin Baaz (rahimahullaah) passed the book to the present Mufti Al-Allaamah Abdul Azeez Aala Shaikh (hafidha-hullaah) who carried out his observations on the book and referred them back to Imaam Bin Baaz (rahimahullaah). However, Imaam Bin Baaz (rahimahullaah) passed away and Abul Hasan did not obtain what he wanted. Indeed Allaah has full control and power over His Affairs.

Indeed, it was Al-Maribi who kindled the fitnah between the salafis after the fitnah of Adnaan Ar’oor. He intended by way of his book a warning against the methodology of Al-Allaamah Rabee Bin Haadee Al-Madkhalee (hafidha-hullaah), which he described as excessive. The evidence showing Al-Maribi as the initiator of the Fitnah is due to the fact that he defended the people of falsehood and innovations in his book, especially the leaders of Ikhwaan Al-Muslimeen, which he titled: A defense of the people of Ittibaa [i.e. a defense of the people who follow the correct path of the Qur’aan and the Sunnah].

Al-Maribi himself said that he rejected/disapproved the methodology of Shaikh Rabee in his book Siraaj al-Wahhaaj few years ago before the clear and final manifestation of his differences with Shaikh Rabee, and that this book of his was written in the year 1418AH and has been reprinted thrice.  Al-Maribi also acknowledged that Shaikh Rabee did refute him in his Book titled: ”Intiqaad Aqadee Alaa Siraaj Al-Wahhaaj, and that Shaikh Rabee himself said: ”Indeed, when I received the book (Siraaj Al-Wahhaaj), I knew that he (Al-Maribi) intended me (i.e. a warning against me in a number of descriptions in relation to extremism, which he said I fell into.”

Asking “Was She a Virgin?” – The Permanent Committee of Scholars

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

Question:

There are some people who ask the husband the morning after having sexual relations with his wife about the virginity of his wife (the bride) saying : “Did you find your wife to be a virgin or not?” Is it permissible for him to respond to this question, even if the questioner was one of the man’s or the woman’s parents?

Answer:

It is neither permissible to ask this question nor respond to it, rather he must close the door to this affair in order to preserve the private affairs of the Muslims.  And to Allaah belongs all success, and may peace and blessings be upon our prophet Muhammad (salla Allaahu alaihi wa sallam), his family and his companions.

Shaikh Fawzaan’s Verdict On Ikhwaan Al-Muslimeen

All praise is due to Allaah, and salaat and salaam upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family and his companions.

My view with regards to the Muslim Brotherhood is that they are partisans (Hizbiyyoon) who covet the attainment of ruler ship; and that they do not give concern to calling to the correcting of the creed (Aqeedah).

And they do not distinguish between their followers, between the Sunni (person upon the Sunnah) and the bid’ee (person upon innovation).

As for the speech (found) in an audio recording that has come from me, then it is a slip of the tongue and does not change my stance in the slightest.

” الحمد لله رب العالمين والصلاة والسلام

على نبينا محمد وعلى آله وصحبه

رأيي في الإخوان المسلمين أنهم حزبيون يريدون التوصل إلى الحكم ولا يهتمون بالدعوة إلى تصحيح العقيدة ولا يفرقون في أتباعهم بين السني والبدعي .

 وما جاء في الكلام الشفهي المسجل عني فهو سبق لسان لا يغير من رأيي فيهم شيئا”.

Ali Halabi’s Unsteady Stance towards Passing Judgments on Individuals and Deviants

[Adnaan Ar’oor and Muhammad Al-Maghraawi]

Before the death of the three Mashaa-yikh [i.e. Imaam Bin Baaz, Imaam Al-Albaanee and Imaam Muhammad Ibn Uthaymeen(rahimahumullaah)], Adnaan Ar’oor together with his companion Ahmad Sallaam newly invented a number of principles and fundamentals in the affair of passing judgements against individuals and the manner of dealing with the Mukhaalifoon. And for that reason, they embarked upon a number of seminars and study sessions in order to attract the salafi youth in Britain and other than it, and they called them to accept those false principles.

In their gatherings, they raised objections against Shaikh Rabee’s methodology of criticism, refutation, his stances towards the one in opposition and in the science Jarh Wat-Tadeel. They warned the youth against the methodology which they described as extreme, excessive harshness and defamation. They defended Sayyid Qutb and portrayed him to the youth as one of the best amongst those who spoke in the (affairs) of Manhaj. Shaikh Rabee opposed them and clarified the corruption of their principles and methodology and the falsity of their fundamentals and what they advocated. So they were infuriated and announced a fierce battle against Shaikh Rabee. This affair was the beginning of the Fitnah of these people and not what some think due to ignorance and deceit, that it was Shaikh Rabee who initiated the Fitnah and war with these ones.

And through a number of deceptive ways, Adnaan Ar’oor attempted to obtain the statements of the three Mashaa-yikh (Imaam Bin Baaz, Imaam Al-Albaanee and Imaam Ibn Uthaymeen) to support his falsehood and dispraise the methodology Shaikh Rabee was defending. He (Adnaan) did not reach what he wanted, because the scholars realised his plots and tricks.

And it was transmitted in a statement of Imaad Taariq Al-Iraaqee in the internet forum Kullu As-Salafiyyeen, which is under Ali Halabi’s supervision: [The Stance of our Imaam Al-Albaanee Towards Shaikh Rabee Al-Madkhali’s Refutation Against Adnaan Ar’oor, transmitted by our shaikh Ali Al-Halabi]; Imaad said: I came across a section from the speech of our Shaikh Al-Halabi in which he transmitted the stance of Shaikh Al-Albaanee towards Shaikh Rabee’s reproach against Adnaan, that when I (Ali Halabi) mentioned some of Shaikh Rabee’s proofs against Adnaan to Shaikh Al-Albaanee and Adnaan reply, he (i.e. Shaikh Al-Albaanee) said: These affairs are true, it is incumbent upon Adnaan to reply to them with clarity, and abstract speech is not enough or merely saying this is general and that is detailed and this is all inclusive and that is specific and so on, this neither rectifies nor is it of benefit in the likes of this affair.
