Ibn Umar’s Relationship With His Jewish Neighbour As Opposed to Satanic Behaviour of Terrorists And Extremists

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

A Sheep was slaughtered for Abdullaah Ibn Umar [radiyallaahu-anhumaa], so he said to his slave, “Have you given to our Jewish neighbour? Have you given to our Jewish neighbour? I heard the Messenger of Allaah [sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam] saying, ‘Jibreel did not cease advising me (about the rights of) a neighbour until I thought that he (a neighbour) would inherit from me’”. [Ref 1]

Christian and Muslim Extremists – [Violating Covenants, Breaking The Law, Murdering People In Churches and Mosques]

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


Christian: 2019: Two mass shootings occurred at mosques in Christchurch New Zealand, during Jumu’ah Prayer on 15 March 2019. A single  gunman entered both mosques and killed 51 people.

Muslim: 2020: Three people have died in a knife attack at a church in Nice, France. Perpetrator: 21-year-old Tunisian national who had arrived in France earlier this month. Two died inside the church: a 60-year-old woman who was “virtually beheaded”, and a 55-year-old man whose throat was cut. The male victim was a lay member of staff responsible for the upkeep of the church. He reportedly had a wife and two children. Another woman, aged 44, managed to flee to a nearby cafe after being stabbed several times, but died later.

We Have Been Commanded to Fulfil Our Covenants [Obligations, Agreements]

Allaah [The Exalted] said:

يَـٰٓأَيُّهَا ٱلَّذِينَ ءَامَنُوٓاْ أَوۡفُواْ بِٱلۡعُقُودِ

O you who believe! Fulfil (or honour your) covenants (obligations, agreements).

[Surah Al-Maa’idah. Aayah 1]

 

Imaam As-Sadi [rahimahullaah] said:

This is a command from Allaah [The Exalted] to His believing slaves to do that which Eemaan [faith] demands with regards to fulfilling agreements [covenants, obligations] – that is to fulfil them perfectly and completely, and that the y neither nullify their covenants nor fall short in fulfilling them. That includes all covenants between the servant and his Lord, that he adheres to servitude to Allaah, fulfil it perfectly and not to neglect anything from it. This also includes the covenant between a person and the Messenger by obeying and following him, the covenant between him and his parents and relatives by being good to them, maintaining the ties of kinship and not to break ties; the covenant between hm and his companions by fulfilling the obligations related to companionship whether in circumstance when one is rich or poor, in times of ease and hardship; the covenant between him and people in mutual dealings, such when conducting business transactions, buying and selling, renting and what is similar, and covenants related to donations, such as gifts and what is similar. [Ref 1]

The Messenger [sallal laahu alayhi wasallam] said:

“Whoever kills a person who is granted the agreement of protection by the Muslims shall not smell the fragrance of Paradise though its fragrance can be smelled at a distance of forty years journey.” [Ref 2]

Imaam Muhammad Ibn Saaleh Al-Uthaymeen [rahimahullaah] said in 2002:

Likewise I invite you to have respect for those people who have the right that they should be respected, from those between you and whom there is an agreement (of protection) [i.e. Non-Muslims]. For the land which you are living is such that there is an agreement between you and them. If this were not the case they would have killed you or expelled you. So preserve this agreement, and do not prove treacherous to it, since treachery is a sign of the hypocrites, and it is not from the way of the Believers.

And know that it is authentically reported from the Prophet that he said : “Whoever kills one who is under an agreement of protection will not smell the fragrance of Paradise.”

Do not be fooled by those sayings of the foolish people: those who say: ‘Those people are Non-Muslims, so their wealth is lawful for us [i.e. to misappropriate or take by way of murder and killing].’ For by Allaah – this is a lie. A lie about Allaah’s Religion, and a lie in Islamic societies.

O my brothers. O youth. O Muslims. Be truthful in your buying and selling, and renting, and leasing, and in all mutual transactions. Because truthfulness is from the characteristics of the Believers, and Allaah – the Most High – has commanded truthfulness – in the saying of Allaah – the Most High – “O you who believe – fear and keep you duty to Allaah and be with the truthful.”

And the Prophet encouraged truthfulness and said : “Adhere to truthfulness, because truthfulness leads to goodness, and goodness leads to Paradise; and a person will continue to be truthful, and strive to be truthful until he will be written down with Allaah as a truthful person“.

And he warned against falsehood, and said : “Beware of falsehood, because falsehood leads to wickedness, and wickedness leads to the Fire. And a person will continue lying, and striving to lie until he is written down with Allaah as a great liar.”

O my brother Muslims. O youth. Be true in your sayings with your brothers, and with those Non-Muslims whom you live along with – so that you will be inviters to the Religion of Islaam, by your actions and in reality. So how many people there are who first entered into Islaam because of the behaviour and manners of the Muslims, and their truthfulness, and their being true in their dealings. [Ref 3] [End of quote]

Brothers and sisters, look at the gravity of the sin and evil committed by the one who kills a non-Muslim unlawfully – whether in a Muslim or non-Muslim country! Firstly, he violates a covenant and secondly he commits murder. However, the affair even gets worse than this when he commits this crime in the places of worship of the non-Muslims!

Subhaanallaah [Glorified be Allaah and free is He from all imperfections]!

Even during war, it is not allowed to kill non-combatants, then how about killing them outside of war! An Naafi [rahimahullaa] reported from Ibn Umar [radiyallaahu anhumaa] that a woman was found dead in one of the military expeditions, so the Messenger [sallal laahu alayhi wasallam] rejected the killing of women and children. [Ref 4]

Thaabit ibn al-Hajjaaj [rahimahullaah] reported that Abu Bakr As-Siddeeq [radiyallaahu-anhu] stood up among the people, praised and thanked Allaah, and then said, “No doubt, do not kill the monk in the monastery”. [Ref 5]

Therefore, brothers and sisters, how about murdering fellow non-Muslim citizens outside of war, and to make matters worse the perpetrators commit this crime in a land where the Muslims have a covenant with the government – whether in France or any other county. This is exactly what Imaam Muhammad Ibn Saaleh Al-Uthaymeen [rahimahullaah] warned against when he said: “For the land which you are living (i.e. non-Muslim country) is such that there is an agreement between you and them. If this were not the case they would have killed you or expelled you. So preserve this agreement, and do not prove treacherous to it, since treachery is a sign of the hypocrites, and it is not from the way of the Believers”.

Indeed, brothers and sisters, we have witnessed  – in recent times – both Muslim and Christian extremists killing people in Mosques and Churches. Firstly, there are those extremely misguided Muslims who think that this crime of theirs is Jihaad. Shaikh Abdul Waahid Abu Khadeejah [hafidahullaah] quoted Al-Allaamah Saaleh Al-Fawzaan [hafidhahullaah] who said: “They kill the non-Muslims whom it is not permissible to kill. They kill those who have a treaty [with the Muslim regimes] or are under a covenant of protection. So this is extremism in the affair of Jihaad.Indeed they go even further by blowing up homes, apartment buildings and built-up areas of a town or city – they kill believers and unbelievers, young and old, males and females. They put terror and fear into the Muslims and non-Muslims who live amongst them, as well as terrifying those under the protection of the Muslim governments from the non-Muslims and the people who have covenants. Then they call that Jihaad! Rather that is Fasaad (corruption) and not Jihaad”. [Ref 6]

And these Muslim extremists also kill fellow Muslims, just as Al-Allaamah Rabee Bin Haadi Al-Madkhalee [hafidhahullaah] said:

“The Khawaarij (i.e. ISIS and their ilk) kill the people whilst they are in prayer.  They (wait for) the time of the prayer and kill people in their Mosques. This has taken place in some of the lands. They  launch an attack and kill them whilst they [i.e. the people] are in prayer”. [Ref 7]

Indeed, brothers and sisters, we have all witnessed this evil from both Muslims and Christians –  extremists and devils amongst humankind who murder people in places of worship. Few examples of this heinous:

Christian: 2019: Two mass occurred at mosques in Christchurch New Zealand, during Jumu’ah Prayer on 15 March 2019. A single a single gunman entered both mosques and killed 51 people.

Muslim: 2020: Three people have died in a knife attack at a church in Nice, France. Perpetrator: 21-year-old Tunisian national who had arrived in France earlier this month. Two died inside the church: a 60-year-old woman who was “virtually beheaded”, and a 55-year-old man whose throat was cut. The male victim was a lay member of staff responsible for the upkeep of the church. He reportedly had a wife and two children. Another woman, aged 44, managed to flee to a nearby cafe after being stabbed several times, but died later.

[For further details regarding some Christian and Muslim extremist – individuals and groups, visit link: https://salaficentre.com/2020/10/30/christian-and-muslim-extremists-some-individuals-and-groups/ ]

Indeed, this is why our Mashaayikh in the west are foremost in fighting extremism.  Shaikh Abdul Waahid Abu Khadeejah [hafidhahullaah] said: “Indeed, terrorist acts, whether perpetrated in Muslim or Non-Muslim countries are a handiwork of the devil. The Scholars- Shaikh Fawzaan, Shaikh Rabee, Shaikh Ubaid, Shaikh Abdullaah al-Bukhaari and many others have always condemned those who perpetrate terrorist acts; rather the scholars hold that those who plot and plan these inhumane acts are to be reported to the authorities. Therefore, Muslim communities must be at the forefront of stamping out these non-Islamic acts that are done falsely in the name of Islam. The Prophet Muhammad [peace and blessings be upon him] stated: ‘’Whoever sees an evil, let him change it with his hand. If he is not able to do that, then let him change it with his tongue [by speaking]. And if he is not able to do that, then let him [hate it] with his heart, and that is the weakest of faith.’’ (Reported by Muslim)

The Scholars have stated that forbidding evil with the hand is done by the governments and the authorities, so they hold and punish and imprison the evil doers. If they withhold from this duty, it does NOT fall into the hands of the citizens to take the law into their own hands. Rather they remain patient. As for speaking against the evil in terms of refuting the false ideologies, then that it for the scholars and the people of knowledge, not for ignorant, and there has never been a time in the history of Islam, except that the scholars have spoken out against evil ideologies and doctrines as a safeguard for Islam, and this will not stop up until the final Hour is established. As for the general person then he forbids only in accordance to his knowledge and ability in line with the rulings of the true scholars of the Sunnah based upon the Qur’aan and the Sunnah. As for hating with the heart, then this for the one who recognizes evil, but does not have the knowledge nor the ability to speak against this, so he distances himself from it and keeps away from it.

Therefore, as it relates to the terrorists, then it is well-known that their evil and inhumane acts are condemned by the Muslim scholars based upon the texts of the Qur’aan and authentic Prophet narrations. So both, a Muslim student of knowledge and the general person is to inform the authorities of those that incite or plan terrorist acts. And this is from the aspect of forbidding evil and thereby earning the reward of Allaah [The Most High].

Another reason why these terrorists and their ideology must be stamped out is due to the fact that they are innovators who have attributed to Islaam, that which Islam is free of, and it is impermissible to accommodate them or defend them or protect them, due to the statement of the Prophet [salallaahu alaihi wassallam], ‘’Whoever innovates or accommodates an innovator, then upon him is the curse of Allaah, His Angels and the whole of mankind.’’ (Reported by Bukhaaree and Muslim). And there is not a shadow of a doubt from an Islamic perspective, that these terrorist ideologies are innovations and these perpetrators are innovators, and it is not permissible to protect them or give them refuge.

One can recognize the ideology of the these evil doers from certain matters that their lectures and discussions always revolve around, from them is that they always call for rebellion and revolution in the Muslim lands and against the Muslim rulers; they declare the Muslim rulers and those who work in the apparatus of government to be apostates; they praise the suicide bombers and terrorists and insurgencies in Iraaq, Palestine and other places and continually justify their actions; they may praise the bombings of 9/11 in New York, 7th July bombings in London or the Madrid bombings. These discussions of theirs may not necessitate that they themselves will organize or carry out terrorist acts but this speech of theirs incites others towards violence. Remember it only takes two or three young men (or women) who have been affected to go out and wreak havoc. The Messenger of Allaah (salallaahu alaihi wassallam), mentioned these renegades (known as the Khawarij) in a narration, ‘’If I am alive when they appear, I will slaughter them with the slaughtering of Aad.’’ And Aad was a tribe mentioned in the Qur’aan that was punished by Allaah for their evils and transgressions. He also stated, ‘’They are the worst of Allaah’s creation under the sky.’’ There are many, many other narrations of the Prophet and his Companions describing them, to the extent that Shaikhul-Islaam Ibn Taymiyyah and Imaam an-Nawawee, two great scholars of the middle ages, stated the consensus of the great Scholars of the early generations of Islaam that these renegades must be prevented and fought against.  So when one looks at the activities of these people such as the killing of men, women and children, Muslim and non-Muslim alike, one sees that they are indiscriminate in their murderous acts.

After what has been mentioned above one can see why the Scholars of Salafiyyah have issued verdicts calling people to inform the authorities if they know of anyone inciting or planning terrorist acts.  There is NO doubt that those make a link between terrorism and what they term as ‘’The Wahhaabis’’, intending by that the Salafis, have made a mythical link based upon fallacies and falsehood. The great Scholar Muhammad Ibn Abdul-Wahhaab (died 1206AH), after whom his adversaries invented the derogatory term ‘Wahhaabi’ for anyone who studied his works – then this Scholar was the most fervent in his opposition to deviation and deviant ideologies. Rather the Salafis, whom the opposers term as Wahhaabis, have been at the forefront of combating the takfeeri, Jihaadi and Terrorist ideologies, for decades. And this refutation of the Salafi scholars against these groups was not just a mere response to modern-day events but rather a religious obligation upon them regardless of prevailing circumstances.

So Syed Qutb, the father and reference point of the modern-day Jihadist-terrorist movements, was refuted by the Salafi Scholars for his call to assassinations and violent revolution decades ago and again in the early nineties by the likes of the Salafi scholars such as Shaikh Bin Baaz, Shaikh Bin Uthaimeen and especially in great detail by Shaikh Rabee bin Haadee al-Madkhalee who authored several books in exposition of Syed Qutb. Shaikh Bin Baaz warned and exposed the evil doctrine of Usamah bin Laden back in the early nineties, whilst the Islamic political groups were in praise of him. Sayyid Abul Ala Maududi is another reference point for the modern day violent politically motivated groups, yet the Salafi Scholars such as Shaikh Rabee al-Madkhali, Shaikh Ubaid al-Jaabiree, Shaikh Hammaad al-Ansaaree exposed his errors and warned against his approach.

Another example is the warning of the Salafi Yemeni Scholar Muqbil bin Haadee against the HAMAS of Palestine whilst the latter were supporting terrorist attacks on civilian buses in Israel. We also have the Scholarly Salafi stance against Hizbollah of south Lebanon and former leader of Iran, Khomeini such as the statements of Shaikh Bin Baz, Shaikh Bin Uthaimin, Shaikh Ahmad an-Najmi and others. Shaikh Ibn Uthaimeen in his now published explanation of ‘Riyaadhus-Saaliheen’ well over fifteen years ago showed his clear abhorrence at the suicide bombings in Palestine. So this is the clarity with which the Salafis speak and have always spoken. Over a thousand years of Salafi authorship, from the time of the disciples of the Prophet until this day, the Scholars of Sunnah and Salafiyyah have been refuting the false ideologies, whether extremist or negligent – Whereas the people of deviation will respond based upon political expediency, but the underlying ideology in support of revolution and suicide attacks remains”. [Ref 8] [End of quote]

Therefore, we must not be easy going with this affair, rather it is an obligation to rebut the ideaology of the extremists and report them to both the Muslim and Non-Muslim Authorities. Read artcle in this link by Al-Allaamah Saaleh and Fawzaan [hafidhahullah] regarding whether it is betrayal to report a Muslim who planning terrorist acts: http://www.answering-extremism.com/trans-pub/ae_saf_12.pdf

The Attacker Said, “Allaahu Akbar!!!” [It is An Obligation In Our Religion to Inform Non-Muslim Authorities About Those Misguided Muslims Who Plot to Murder Our Non-Muslim Fellow Citizens]

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


It Is Not Betrayal, Rather It Is An Obligation to Report Terrorists to The Non-Muslim Authorities – By Allaamah Saaleh al-Fawzaan [hafidhahullaah]

http://www.answering-extremism.com/trans-pub/ae_saf_12.pdf


The Attacker said, “Allaahu Akbar”

Indeed, we constantly hear in the news that a person attacked and killed his fellow citizens, and that the attacker shouted “Allaahu Akbar” whilst committing his crime or after being arrested. If it is true that the attacker did shout “Allaahu Akbar”, then this shows – without a shadow of doubt – that such a person is extremely misguided and confused, because it is enough evil to murder a fellow citizen, let alone exalting Allaah whilst doing so. “Allaahu Akbar” is to be uttered in obedience to Allaah, whereas the one who utters it whilst murdering fellow non-Muslim citizens is committing one of the seven deadly major sins. Allaah [The Most High] said: [وَكَبِّرْهُ تَكْبِيراً- And magnify Him (i.e. Allaah) with all the magnificence, (Allahu-Akbar -Allah is the Most Great)]. [17:111]

Imaam Ibn Jareer [rahimahullaah] stated in his Tafseer: Exalt your Lord O Muhammad through what He has commanded you to exalt Him- in speech and deeds; obey Him in what He has commanded you and with regards to what He has forbidden you [i.e. by keeping away from it]. [Ref 1]

Imaam Muhammad Al-Ameen Ash-Shanqeetee [rahimahullaah] stated: Exalt Allaah (with) a powerful exaltation, manifest the greatness of Allah by strongly guarding what Allaah has commanded, keeping away from what He has forbidden and hastening towards everything that pleases Allaah, which is similar to Allaah’s statement: [لِتُكَبِّرُوا اللَّهَ عَلَىٰ مَا هَدَاكُمْ  -That you may magnify Allah for His Guidance to you. [Ref 2] [End of quote]

Therefore, to utter this statement “Allaahu Akbar” whilst committing a crime – murdering fellow non-Muslim citizens – shows the misguidance, confusion and barbarism of the perpetrator. The noble Messenger [sallal laahu alayhi wasalam] said: “Whoever kills a person protected by a treaty will not smell the fragrance of Paradise. Verily, its fragrance can be found from a distance of forty years of travel.” [Al-Bukhaari 6516]

Therefore, how can one justify murdering his fellow non-Muslim citizens when it is the case that we all live together under this agreement and promise one another – through the law of the land – that we’ll protect one another’s life and physical wellbeing?!

Imaam Muhammad Ibn Saaleh Al-Uthaymeen [rahimahullaah] stated during a tele-link, on the 28th July 2000:

Likewise I invite you to have respect for those people who have the right that they should be respected, from those between you and whom there is an agreement (of protection) [i.e. Non-Muslims]. For the land which you are living is such that there is an agreement between you and them. If this were not the case they would have killed you or expelled you. So preserve this agreement, and do not prove treacherous to it, since treachery is a sign of the hypocrites, and it is not from the way of the Believers.

And know that it is authentically reported from the Prophet that he said : “Whoever kills one who is under an agreement of protection will not smell the fragrance of Paradise.”

Do not be fooled by those sayings of the foolish people: those who say: ‘Those people are Non-Muslims, so their wealth is lawful for us [i.e. to misappropriate or take by way of murder and killing].’ For by Allaah – this is a lie. A lie about Allaah’s Religion, and a lie in Islamic societies.

O my brothers. O youth. O Muslims. Be truthful in your buying and selling, and renting, and leasing, and in all mutual transactions. Because truthfulness is from the characteristics of the Believers, and Allaah – the Most High – has commanded truthfulness – in the saying of Allaah – the Most High – “O you who believe – fear and keep you duty to Allaah and be with the truthful.”

And the Prophet encouraged truthfulness and said : “Adhere to truthfulness, because truthfulness leads to goodness, and goodness leads to Paradise; and a person will continue to be truthful, and strive to be truthful until he will be written down with Allaah as a truthful person“.

And he warned against falsehood, and said : “Beware of falsehood, because falsehood leads to wickedness, and wickedness leads to the Fire. And a person will continue lying, and striving to lie until he is written down with Allaah as a great liar.”

O my brother Muslims. O youth. Be true in your sayings with your brothers, and with those Non-Muslims whom you live along with – so that you will be inviters to the Religion of Islaam, by your actions and in reality. So how many people there are who first entered into Islaam because of the behaviour and manners of the Muslims, and their truthfulness, and their being true in their dealings. [Ref 3]

Shaikh Abdul Waahid Abu Khadeejah [hafidhahullaah] said:

Indeed, terrorist acts, whether perpetrated in Muslim or Non-Muslim countries are a handiwork of the devil. The Scholars- Shaikh Fawzaan, Shaikh Rabee, Shaikh Ubaid, Shaikh Abdullaah al-Bukhaari and many others have always condemned those who perpetrate terrorist acts; rather the scholars hold that those who plot and plan these inhumane acts are to be reported to the authorities. Therefore, Muslim communities must be at the forefront of stamping out these non-Islamic acts that are done falsely in the name of Islam. The Prophet Muhammad [peace and blessings be upon him] stated: ‘’Whoever sees an evil, let him change it with his hand. If he is not able to do that, then let him change it with his tongue [by speaking]. And if he is not able to do that, then let him [hate it] with his heart, and that is the weakest of faith.’’ (Reported by Muslim)

The Scholars have stated that forbidding evil with the hand is done by the governments and the authorities, so they hold and punish and imprison the evil doers. If they withhold from this duty, it does NOT fall into the hands of the citizens to take the law into their own hands. Rather they remain patient. As for speaking against the evil in terms of refuting the false ideologies, then that it for the scholars and the people of knowledge, not for ignorant, and there has never been a time in the history of Islam, except that the scholars have spoken out against evil ideologies and doctrines as a safeguard for Islam, and this will not stop up until the final Hour is established. As for the general person then he forbids only in accordance to his knowledge and ability in line with the rulings of the true scholars of the Sunnah based upon the Qur’aan and the Sunnah. As for hating with the heart, then this for the one who recognizes evil, but does not have the knowledge nor the ability to speak against this, so he distances himself from it and keeps away from it.

Therefore, as it relates to the terrorists, then it is well-known that their evil and inhumane acts are condemned by the Muslim scholars based upon the texts of the Qur’aan and authentic Prophet narrations. So both, a Muslim student of knowledge and the general person is to inform the authorities of those that incite or plan terrorist acts. And this is from the aspect of forbidding evil and thereby earning the reward of Allaah [The Most High].

Another reason why these terrorists and their ideology must be stamped out is due to the fact that they are innovators who have attributed to Islaam, that which Islam is free of, and it is impermissible to accommodate them or defend them or protect them, due to the statement of the Prophet [salallaahu alaihi wassallam], ‘’Whoever innovates or accommodates an innovator, then upon him is the curse of Allaah, His Angels and the whole of mankind.’’ (Reported by Bukhaaree and Muslim). And there is not a shadow of a doubt from an Islamic perspective, that these terrorist ideologies are innovations and these perpetrators are innovators, and it is not permissible to protect them or give them refuge.

One can recognize the ideology of the these evil doers from certain matters that their lectures and discussions always revolve around, from them is that they always call for rebellion and revolution in the Muslim lands and against the Muslim rulers; they declare the Muslim rulers and those who work in the apparatus of government to be apostates; they praise the suicide bombers and terrorists and insurgencies in Iraaq, Palestine and other places and continually justify their actions; they may praise the bombings of 9/11 in New York, 7th July bombings in London or the Madrid bombings. These discussions of theirs may not necessitate that they themselves will organize or carry out terrorist acts but this speech of theirs incites others towards violence. Remember it only takes two or three young men (or women) who have been affected to go out and wreak havoc. The Messenger of Allaah (salallaahu alaihi wassallam), mentioned these renegades (known as the Khawarij) in a narration, ‘’If I am alive when they appear, I will slaughter them with the slaughtering of Aad.’’ And Aad was a tribe mentioned in the Qur’aan that was punished by Allaah for their evils and transgressions. He also stated, ‘’They are the worst of Allaah’s creation under the sky.’’ There are many, many other narrations of the Prophet and his Companions describing them, to the extent that Shaikhul-Islaam Ibn Taymiyyah and Imaam an-Nawawee, two great scholars of the middle ages, stated the consensus of the great Scholars of the early generations of Islaam that these renegades must be prevented and fought against.  So when one looks at the activities of these people such as the killing of men, women and children, Muslim and non-Muslim alike, one sees that they are indiscriminate in their murderous acts.

After what has been mentioned above one can see why the Scholars of Salafiyyah have issued verdicts calling people to inform the authorities if they know of anyone inciting or planning terrorist acts.  There is NO doubt that those make a link between terrorism and what they term as ‘’The Wahhaabis’’, intending by that the Salafis, have made a mythical link based upon fallacies and falsehood. The great Scholar Muhammad Ibn Abdul-Wahhaab (died 1206AH), after whom his adversaries invented the derogatory term ‘Wahhaabi’ for anyone who studied his works – then this Scholar was the most fervent in his opposition to deviation and deviant ideologies. Rather the Salafis, whom the opposers term as Wahhaabis, have been at the forefront of combating the takfeeri, Jihaadi and Terrorist ideologies, for decades. And this refutation of the Salafi scholars against these groups was not just a mere response to modern-day events but rather a religious obligation upon them regardless of prevailing circumstances.

So Syed Qutb, the father and reference point of the modern-day Jihadist-terrorist movements, was refuted by the Salafi Scholars for his call to assassinations and violent revolution decades ago and again in the early nineties by the likes of the Salafi scholars such as Shaikh Bin Baaz, Shaikh Bin Uthaimeen and especially in great detail by Shaikh Rabee bin Haadee al-Madkhalee who authored several books in exposition of Syed Qutb. Shaikh Bin Baaz warned and exposed the evil doctrine of Usamah bin Laden back in the early nineties, whilst the Islamic political groups were in praise of him. Sayyid Abul Ala Maududi is another reference point for the modern day violent politically motivated groups, yet the Salafi Scholars such as Shaikh Rabee al-Madkhali, Shaikh Ubaid al-Jaabiree, Shaikh Hammaad al-Ansaaree exposed his errors and warned against his approach.

Another example is the warning of the Salafi Yemeni Scholar Muqbil bin Haadee against the HAMAS of Palestine whilst the latter were supporting terrorist attacks on civilian buses in Israel. We also have the Scholarly Salafi stance against Hizbollah of south Lebanon and former leader of Iran, Khomeini such as the statements of Shaikh Bin Baz, Shaikh Bin Uthaimin, Shaikh Ahmad an-Najmi and others. Shaikh Ibn Uthaimeen in his now published explanation of ‘Riyaadhus-Saaliheen’ well over fifteen years ago showed his clear abhorrence at the suicide bombings in Palestine. So this is the clarity with which the Salafis speak and have always spoken. Over a thousand years of Salafi authorship, from the time of the disciples of the Prophet until this day, the Scholars of Sunnah and Salafiyyah have been refuting the false ideologies, whether extremist or negligent – Whereas the people of deviation will respond based upon political expediency, but the underlying ideology in support of revolution and suicide attacks remains. [Ref 4]

A Brief Mention of The Station of The Upright Scholars And The Behaviour Expected From People When Dealing With Them

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

Imaam As-Sadi [rahimahullaah] said:

They [i.e. the upright scholars and teachers] are the mediators between the Messenger [sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam] and his Ummah with regards to propagation of his religion and clarification of his Sharee’ah. Had it not been for these ones, the people would have been like cattle. They are the ones who guide the Ummah in the fundamental and subsidiary affairs of their Religion. They return them to the rulings pertaining to the rights and dealings that are incumbent upon a person to fulfil, just as they return them to the affairs related to acts of worship. Through them the Book and the Sunnah are established; truth is distinguished from falsehood, guidance is distinguished from misguidance, the lawful is distinguished from the unlawful, good is distinguished from evil, and [sound] rectification is distinguished from corruption. They are of varying ranks, in accordance with what they establish of knowledge, teaching and benefit- great or small. They have great rights [to be fulfilled] by the ummah and are possessors of a lofty status. Therefore, the people must have love and respect for them. They must recognise their excellence and virtue, and thank them greatly. They are to supplicate for them in private and public, and seek nearness to Allaah by having love for them and praising them. They are to proclaim their excellence, guard the hearts from harbouring evil against them and restrain the tongues from insulting them, because that would tarnish their excellence. [Ref 1]

One of the most important characteristics of th scholar is that he is submissive to Allaah and humbles himself to the command of Allaah, which is a characteristic of those who possess knowledge. Allaah [The Blessed and Exalted] said:

قُلۡ ءَامِنُواْ بِهِۦۤ أَوۡ لَا تُؤۡمِنُوٓاْ‌ۚ إِنَّ ٱلَّذِينَ أُوتُواْ ٱلۡعِلۡمَ مِن قَبۡلِهِۦۤ إِذَا يُتۡلَىٰ عَلَيۡہِمۡ يَخِرُّونَ لِلۡأَذۡقَانِ سُجَّدً۬ا

وَيَقُولُونَ سُبۡحَـٰنَ رَبِّنَآ إِن كَانَ وَعۡدُ رَبِّنَا لَمَفۡعُولاً۬

وَيَخِرُّونَ لِلۡأَذۡقَانِ يَبۡكُونَ وَيَزِيدُهُمۡ خُشُوعً۬ا

Say (O Muhammad to them): “Believe in it (the Qur’an) or do not believe (in it). Verily! Those who were given knowledge before it (the Jews and the Christians like ‘Abdullah bin Salam and Salman Al-Fraise), when it is recited to them, fall down on their faces in humble prostration.” And they say: “Glory be to our Lord! Truly, the Promise of our Lord must be fulfilled.” And they fall down on their faces weeping and it adds to their humility. [Surah Al-Israa’ Aayaat 107-109]

Allaah [The Blessed and Exalted] said:

وَمِنَ ٱلنَّاسِ وَٱلدَّوَآبِّ وَٱلۡأَنۡعَـٰمِ مُخۡتَلِفٌ أَلۡوَٲنُهُ ۥ كَذَٲلِكَۗ إِنَّمَا يَخۡشَى ٱللَّهَ مِنۡ عِبَادِهِ ٱلۡعُلَمَـٰٓؤُاْۗ إِنَّ ٱللَّهَ عَزِيزٌ غَفُورٌ

And of men and Ad–Dawab (moving living creatures, beasts, etc.), and cattle, in like manner of various colours. It is only those who have knowledge among His slaves that fear Allah. Verily, Allah is All-Mighty, Oft-Forgiving. [Surah Faatir’ Aayah 28]

He is Zaahid [i.e. his heart is not attached to the worldly life in a blameworthy manner], suffices himself with little and urges his people to be on guard regarding this affair. Allaah stated that those who were given knowledge amongst Bani Israa’eel said to their people when they became amazed with Qaaroon’s wealth:

وَقَالَ ٱلَّذِينَ أُوتُواْ ٱلۡعِلۡمَ وَيۡلَڪُمۡ ثَوَابُ ٱللَّهِ خَيۡرٌ۬ لِّمَنۡ ءَامَنَ وَعَمِلَ صَـٰلِحً۬ا وَلَا يُلَقَّٮٰهَآ إِلَّا ٱلصَّـٰبِرُونَ

But those who had been given (religious) knowledge said: “Woe to you! The Reward of Allah (in the Hereafter) is better for those who believe and do righteous good deeds, and this none shall attain except those who are patient (in following the truth). [Surah Al-Aqsa’s’ Aayah 80]

Allaah [The Blessed and Exalted] said:

وَمَا كَانَ ٱلۡمُؤۡمِنُونَ لِيَنفِرُواْ ڪَآفَّةً۬‌ۚ فَلَوۡلَا نَفَرَ مِن كُلِّ فِرۡقَةٍ۬ مِّنۡہُمۡ طَآٮِٕفَةٌ۬ لِّيَتَفَقَّهُواْ فِى ٱلدِّينِ وَلِيُنذِرُواْ قَوۡمَهُمۡ إِذَا رَجَعُوٓاْ إِلَيۡہِمۡ لَعَلَّهُمۡ يَحۡذَرُونَ

And it is not (proper) for the believers to go out to fight (Jihad) all together. Of every troop of them, a party only should go forth, that they (who are left behind) may get instructions in (Islamic) religion, and that they may warn their people when they return to them, so that they may beware (of evil). [Surah At-Taw bah’ Aayah 122]

A true scholar sees that [the basis, means and source of all] truth and guidance is in that which Allaah [The Most High] has revealed. Allaah [The Blessed and Exalted] said:

وَيَرَى ٱلَّذِينَ أُوتُواْ ٱلۡعِلۡمَ ٱلَّذِىٓ أُنزِلَ إِلَيۡكَ مِن رَّبِّكَ هُوَ ٱلۡحَقَّ وَيَهۡدِىٓ إِلَىٰ صِرَٲطِ ٱلۡعَزِيزِ ٱلۡحَمِيدِ

And those who have been given knowledge see that what is revealed to you (O Muhammad) from your Lord is the truth, and guides to the Path of the Exalted in Might, Owner of all praise. [Surah Saba’ Aayah 6]

The true scholar understands the similitudes which Allaah has put forward for mankind in the noble Qur’aan. Allaah [The Blessed and Exalted] said:

[وَتِلۡكَ ٱلۡأَمۡثَـٰلُ نَضۡرِبُهَا لِلنَّاسِ‌ۖ وَمَا يَعۡقِلُهَآ إِلَّا ٱلۡعَـٰلِمُونَ – And these similitudes We put forward for mankind, but none will understand them except those who have knowledge (of Allah and His Signs, etc.) [Surah Al-Ankabut’ Aayah 43]

The true scholar is that one who possesses sound understanding and can derive sound rulings from the texts. Allaah [The Blessed and Exalted] said:

وَإِذَا جَآءَهُمۡ أَمۡرٌ۬ مِّنَ ٱلۡأَمۡنِ أَوِ ٱلۡخَوۡفِ أَذَاعُواْ بِهِۦ‌ۖ وَلَوۡ رَدُّوهُ إِلَى ٱلرَّسُولِ وَإِلَىٰٓ أُوْلِى ٱلۡأَمۡرِ مِنۡہُمۡ لَعَلِمَهُ ٱلَّذِينَ يَسۡتَنۢبِطُونَهُ ۥ مِنۡہُمۡ‌ۗ وَلَوۡلَا فَضۡلُ ٱللَّهِ عَلَيۡڪُمۡ وَرَحۡمَتُهُ ۥ لَٱتَّبَعۡتُمُ ٱلشَّيۡطَـٰنَ إِلَّا قَلِيلاً۬

When there comes to them some matter touching (public) safety or fear, they make it known (among the people), if only they had referred it to the Messenger or to those charged with authority among them, the proper investigators would have understood it from them (directly). Had it not been for the Grace and Mercy of Allah upon you, you would have followed Shaitan (Satan), save a few of you. [Surah An-Nisaa’ Aayah 83]

Respect For The Scholars

Abdullaah Ibn Amr [radiyallaahu-anhu] said that the Prophet [sallal-laahu alayhi wasallam] said:

من لم يرحم صغيرنا، ويعرف حق كبيرنا، فليس منا

He is not one of us who does not show mercy to our younger ones [and does not] acknowledge the rights of our elders.

[Saheeh Sunan Abee Daawud 4943]

It is from the rights of knowledge that one recognises the rights of a true scholar, recognise that Allaah has raised his status and granted him knowledge. Allaah [The Most High] said:

يَرۡفَعِ ٱللَّهُ ٱلَّذِينَ ءَامَنُواْ مِنكُمۡ وَٱلَّذِينَ أُوتُواْ ٱلۡعِلۡمَ دَرَجَـٰتٍ۬‌ۚ وَٱللَّهُ بِمَا تَعۡمَلُونَ خَبِيرٌ۬

Allah will exalt in degree those of you who believe, and those who have been granted knowledge. And Allah is Well-Acquainted with what you do.

[Surah Al-Mujaadilah’ Aayah 11]

Therefore, his status is acknowledged because Allaah raised his status by way of the knowledge he is given.

One should consider himself [deficient] compared to the understanding, piety and the fear of Allaah possessed by the scholars. Neither should he regard himself to be more virtuous than them nor regard his understanding to be distinguished [in superiority] over theirs. It is feared for the one sees himself as having virtue over the scholars that there might be some characteristics of pride in him. Abdullaah Ibn Mas’ood [radiyallaahu-anhu] reported that the Prophet [sallal laahu alayhi wasallam] said: “No one will enter Paradise in whose heart is an atom’s weight of arrogance.” A man said: What if a man likes his clothes to look nice and his shoes to look nice? He said: “Verily Allah is Beautiful and loves beauty; arrogance means rejecting the truth and looking down on people.” [saheeh Muslim hadeeth number 91]

Rejecting the truth means to repel, rebut and deny it. And looking down on the people means: belittling them, humiliating them and being arrogant towards them. And when it is the case that this is [tantamount] to pride [when dealing with the] people, then how about this [behaviour towards] the scholars.

One should be respectful and polite [when dealing with those rulings of theirs that are based on ijtihaad], even when it becomes manifest that it is incorrect, because indeed they are still not deprived of reward. They are either rewarded twice or rewarded once and forgiven. Amr Ibnul Aas [radiyallaahu-anhu] said that he heard the Messenger of Allaah [sallal-laahu alayhi-wasallam] saying, “If a judge gives a verdict according to the best of his knowledge and hi verdict is correct [i.e. agrees with Allaah and His Messenger’s verdict, he will receive a double reward; and if he gives a verdict according to the best of his knowledge and his verdict is wrong [i.e. against that of Allaah and His Messenger], even then he will get a reward.” [Al-Bukhaari Number 7352]

One should contemplate on their statements and their Ijtihaad [i.e. those verdicts they give after striving- to the best of their knowledge-to reach the truth]. One should not rush to refute it [i.e. their statements and verdicts], for how many statements of a scholar is criticised by some people, whilst the evil of the criticiser [i.e. the evil he causes for himself and others] was due to an unsound understanding of the statements of the scholar.  [Ref2]

A Mujtahid is not deprived of reward. The judgement of a non-Mujtahid is different from that of a Mujtahid. Shaikhul Islaam Ibn Taymiyyah [rahimahullaah] said that the one who speaks about the religion without knowledge and out of ignorance [is guilty of] lying and sinning. The one who intentionally speaks to oppose the truth is threatened with entry into the fire of hell, as opposed to the affair of the one who speaks based on permissible Ijtihaad, for indeed he strives, fears Allaah as much as he is able, desires to seek knowledge as much as he was able, speaks for the sake of Allaah, knows the stronger proof and speaks based on that. This person is given two rewards if he is correct; but if he is mistaken, he receives one reward. A Mujtahid can be correct or mistaken. [Ref 3]

Shaikh Rabee Bin Haadee [hafidha-hullaah] said: ”We do not say that there are people of ijtihaad amongst ahlul bidah because they are followers of desires, and Allaah and His Messenger have testified to this. The misguided innovator stirs up discord and errs, and then says to you, ‘This is ijtihaad’. When Hikmatiyaar and the misguided parties [in Afghanistan] murdered Shaikh Jameel Ur-Rahmaan, they said: ‘This is ijtihaad.’ They [ahlul bidah] do not fall into an affair of misguidance or a calamity except that they say, “This is ijtihaad.”  This is [tantamount] to diluting Islaam, falsehood, misguidance, bidah and confounding truth with falsehood, when the mistakes of the [true and qualified scholars of ijtihaad]- for which they are rewarded- are placed at the same level with innovation, about which the Messenger [sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam] declared to be destined for the hell fire. [Ref 4]

Important Reminders

Read article to remind you about the manner in which we should deal with the scholars when they err. http://www.salafitalk.net/st/viewmessages.cfm?Forum=9&Topic=12294

http://www.salaficentre.com/2016/08/can-person-worthy-giving-fatwa-imaam-ashshaafiee/

One does not seek to diminish their status by saying that they do not possess knowledge of a worldly craft. So, it should not be said about a scholar [i.e. whilst seeking to diminish his status], “He does not possess knowledge of medicine or engineering.’’ And likewise, some people seek to discredit the scholars by saying that they are lacking in their knowledge of current affairs, even though the Miskeen – [i.e. this one who seek to discredit the scholars through this false claim is one greatly lacking in understanding, wisdom, insight, experience]- does know which ‘Knowledge of current affairs’ is to be given consideration [or importance]! He does not know that there is- in the Islamic legislation- that which suffices the one who wants true knowledge and comprehension.

Therefore, it is obligated on a Muslim to restrain his tongue from [uttering] that which is impermissible [or unbefitting], and he should not speak except based on clear-sightedness. One requires knowledge to say that such and such person does not possess understanding of the ‘knowledge of current affairs’.

Therefore, none should say this except one who possesses knowledge to enable him to make a judgement that such and such person does not possess knowledge of current affairs. As for saying so haphazardly [or randomly] and making a judgement based on one’s view without proof, then that is great evil and it is not permissible. It requires proof to say that a (particular) Saahib Al-Fatwaa – i.e. a scholar who is qualified to give Fatwaa – does not understand knowledge of current affairs, and none is able to do so except the scholars.

One should keep close companionship with them, gather around them, acquire knowledge from them, keep away from splitting and blameworthy differing. And one must know that the danger of being distanced from the scholars is great indeed, for indeed a wolf preys on the lonely sheep. [On the other hand], by gathering and uniting around the scholars, and keeping close companionship with them, one is safeguarded from falling into bidah – the traps of desires and lust. And in this also [i.e. keeping close companionship with the scholars] is exaltation of the religion, knowledge and the scholars, and it strikes fear in the hearts of the disobedient people and wicked sinners.

It is forbidden to speak ill of them and violate their honour, for when it is the case that a Muslim is forbidden from shedding the blood, violating the wealth and honour of other Muslims, then how about violating the honour of the scholars – the most distinguished personalities – [i.e. due to their knowledge, piety, wisdom] – amongst the Muslims?! It is then no wonder that the flesh of the scholars is poisonous and Allaah’s way of dealing with those who diminish their worth is well known. [Ref 5]

Ibn Asaakir [rahimahullaah] said: Know O my brother! May Allaah grant us and you His Pleasure and make us from those who have awe and fear of Him as He should be feared. Indeed, the flesh of the scholars is poisonous and Allaah’s way of disclosing the hidden affairs of those who diminish their worth is well known. [Ref 6]

One should neither bypass them nor preceded them [i.e. precede them in speech regarding rulings in the religion], rather they are to be consulted during a Naazilah [i.e. matters related to public safety or fear] so that they can issue its appropriate ruling from the Sharee’ah. [This (i.e. consulting the scholars during a Naazilah) is done] in obedience to the statement of Allaah:

وَإِذَا جَآءَهُمۡ أَمۡرٌ۬ مِّنَ ٱلۡأَمۡنِ أَوِ ٱلۡخَوۡفِ أَذَاعُواْ بِهِۦ‌ۖ وَلَوۡ رَدُّوهُ إِلَى ٱلرَّسُولِ وَإِلَىٰٓ أُوْلِى ٱلۡأَمۡرِ مِنۡہُمۡ لَعَلِمَهُ ٱلَّذِينَ يَسۡتَنۢبِطُونَهُ ۥ مِنۡہُمۡ‌ۗ وَلَوۡلَا فَضۡلُ ٱللَّهِ عَلَيۡڪُمۡ وَرَحۡمَتُهُ ۥ لَٱتَّبَعۡتُمُ ٱلشَّيۡطَـٰنَ إِلَّا قَلِيلاً۬

When there comes to them some matter touching (public) safety or fear, they make it known (among the people), if only they had referred it to the Messenger or to those charged with authority among them, the proper investigators would have understood it from them (directly). Had it not been for the Grace and Mercy of Allah upon you, you would have followed Shaitan (Satan), save a few of you. [Surah An-Nisaa’ Aayah 83]

Therefore, they [i.e. the scholars] are not to be bypassed when public clarifications and speeches are to be made during events related to public safety or fear, rather [we] must return to them because this is a right of theirs.

Imaam As-Sadi [rahimahullaah] said about this Aayaah [i.e. An-Nisaa 83]:

This is a moral conduct [commanded by Allaah] to His slaves – that they do not do this [i.e. hasten to spread news]. And it is obligated on them that when there comes to them an affair from the important affairs – matters related to a universal benefit for the people, public safety and those affairs on which depends the sorrow or happiness of the believers, or an affair of public fear which may bring about calamity upon them- that they should verify the [news of that affair] and not to be hasty in spreading it; rather they should refer it back to the Messenger [sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam] and to those in authority- the people of sound opinions, the people of knowledge; those who can give sound advice, the people of intelligence and those who approach affairs with calmness, and they are those who know what is of overriding benefit and that which is in opposition to it [i.e. the scholars].  So, if they see that disseminating such news will bring about an overriding benefit for the Muslims, strengthen them, bring about happiness and make them vigilant over their enemies, then they would disseminate such news; but if they see that there is no overriding benefit in disseminating such news, or that there is benefit in it, but there is more harm in doing so; then they would not circulate such news.

That is why Allaah stated:

[ وَلَوْ رَدُّوهُ إِلَى الرَّسُولِ وَإِلَىٰ أُولِي الْأَمْرِ مِنْهُمْ لَعَلِمَهُ الَّذِينَ يَسْتَنبِطُونَهُ مِنْهُمْ  – If only they had referred it to the Messenger or to those charged with authority among them, the proper investigators would have understood it from them (directly)]– Meaning: They would have derived from it [the proper cause of action] through contemplation and through their correct opinions and rightly guided sciences.

Therefore, in this there is proof regarding a principle related to a moral conduct, that when an [important affair] from the [important affairs] suddenly appears, it is obligatory to refer it to those who are competent in the affair and one should not put himself forward before them, for that is closer to correctness and [safer] in preventing mistakes. And in this, there is a prohibition against being hasty in circulating news [that is related important affairs of public safety or fear] and a command to contemplate before speaking- to look into the affair, as to whether it is an affair of overriding benefit to be dealt with, or whether it should be avoided if it does not carry an [overriding benefit].

[وَلَوۡلَا فَضۡلُ ٱللَّهِ عَلَيۡڪُمۡ وَرَحۡمَتُهُ – Had it not been for the Grace and Mercy of Allah upon you]- Meaning: [Had Allaah not] granted you the ability to act upon righteousness, instructed you with moral conducts and taught you that which you never knew, then [لَٱتَّبَعۡتُمُ ٱلشَّيۡطَـٰنَ إِلَّا قَلِيلاً۬  – you would have followed Shaitan (Satan), save a few of you].

One should not be a partisan of their statements without proof. There is a difference between exalting the scholars, honouring them and acknowledging their rights as opposed to being a partisan of their statements when they oppose the proofs. Indeed, [blind] partisanship is blameworthy and it is [attributed] to ignorance [ref 1]; but showing respect to a scholar and honouring him is among the virtues of knowledge. And abandoning those statements of the scholars that are in opposition to the proofs is not tantamount to nullifying their statements and a violation of their rights, rather it is adherence to the path of the infallible one [i.e. the Prophet (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam)] and a protection of the rights of the scholars.

The subject matter of Taqleed and Ittibaa starts from page 68: http://masjidfurqan.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2015/09/A_return_to_the_Sunnah.pdf   Also see- [a brief acquaintance] – articles about the etiquettes of differing in issues of Ijtihaad amongst the scholars: http://www.salafitalk.net/st/viewmessages.cfm?Forum=9&Topic=12294

If it is the case that knowledge vanishes when the scholars pass away, and if it is the case that violating the rights of a scholar will stop [others to benefit from] his knowledge, then indeed violating the rights of a scholar is like the disappearance of his knowledge when he passes away. It [i.e. violating the rights of the scholars] is in fact a reason behind the disappearance of the rulings derived from knowledge.

Abdullaah Bin Amr ibn Al-Aas said:

I heard the Messenger of Allaah [sallal laahu alayhi wasallam] saying, ‘’Allaah does not take away the knowledge by taking it away from (the hearts of) the people, but takes it away by the death of the religious learned men till when none of the scholars remains, people will take as their leaders ignorant persons who when consulted will give their verdict without knowledge. So, they will go astray and will lead the people astray.’’ [Al- Bukhaari. Number 100]

Imaam Al-Bukhaari placed a chapter in his Saheeh, in kitaab Al-Ilm: Chapter: How will knowledge be taken away? And Umar bin Abdul Azeez wrote to Abu Bakr Bin Hazm, [saying]: “Look for the Hadeeth of the Messenger of Allaah [sallal laahu alayhi wasallam]  and get it written, for indeed I am afraid that religious knowledge will vanish and the scholars will pass away. Do not accept anything except the hadeeth of the Prophet [sallal laahu alayhi wasallam]. Spread knowledge and teach until the one who does not know comes to know; for indeed knowledge does not vanish except when it becomes concealed.’’ [Al-Bukhaari. Chapter 34]

The statement of Umar bin Abdul Azeez: “For indeed knowledge does not vanish except when it becomes concealed” -Meaning: Hidden. knowledge will become something concealed. This [concealment of knowledge] will inevitably occur when the rights of the scholars are violated, because if the rights of a scholar are violated, the people will keep away from his knowledge and thus it becomes hidden. Knowledge is no longer known except as something hidden [to some people] due to the [majority of the people] being overwhelmed by ignorance. Therefore, the people must know the scholar and the scholar must teach the people, and the people must benefit from his knowledge. [And knowledge must be spread so that the one who does not know comes to know, for indeed knowledge does not vanish until it becomes concealed].

If it is said, “How is death of the scholars – in reality -connected to the disappearance of Knowledge when it is the case that the Magnificent Qur’aan and the Sunnah are present, and the Books of knowledge are present, compiled and categorised?!”

The answer to this is: A scholar exalts the religion and the Islamic law, so he urges the people and calls them to act upon the obligatory and recommended deeds. There are many Sunan that are compiled and written down, but were manifested through a scholar, who called the people to it, taught them [about it] and urged them to revive it, and this cannot be accomplished merely due to the presence of books.

An [upright] scholar-amongst the people- is a righteous example to follow. People see the practical implementation of the religion from him, and being a [righteous] example is one of the greatest means through which people are nurtured and taught. The Sunnah is an [uptight] scholar’s distinguishing characteristic, so when a scholar dies, the image of the religion – which he carried amongst the people – departs, and this [i.e.  practical example and manifestation of the Sunnah] cannot be accomplished merely through books.

The scholar possesses knowledge and precise understanding to aid him derive [sound] ruling [from the texts of the Sharee’ah]. So, when a Naazilah [i.e. an affair related to public safety or fear] occurs, he is able to quickly derive a ruling, teach the people, disseminate the ruling and explain the Sharee’ah ruling related to that [particular] Naazilah. The ability [to do this] is not acquired by merely reading books when a Naazilah occurs, without the oral skills, knowledge and prolonged experience possessed by the scholars.

An [upright] scholar has precise understanding of the Qur’aan, the Sunnah and the various sciences related to the religion. He has knowledge and wisdom related to nurturing and teaching others, and he has experience. He has [good] awareness of the different circumstances of the people, their daily pursuits and general affairs, which is not found in books. And if a person wanted to acquaint himself with all these affairs, he would need a long time [or many years] to do so; but the scholar came across these affairs during his lifetime- from the very beginning of his path in pursuit of knowledge; so how can all of this be merely acquired by [reading] books?!

Violating the rights of the [upright] scholars will make the common people unaware of the station of Ahlul Ilm [i.e. the people who possess correct understanding of the religion], nor will they preserve their status, so the clear authority to consult in their lives becomes non-existent and thus they wander about in the darkness of ignorance, and social order is destabilised; for indeed the scholars are the ones who guide [and rectify] the people, the land and the kings.

Therefore, the passing away of the scholars- in reality- leads to corruption of the [upright] world order – the people will not have an [upright] authority to refer to during Nawaazil [i.e. events related to public safety and fear] and thus they fall into great confusion and disorder, except that which Allaah wills not to happen [or except those whom Allaah wills that they will not be affected by this confusion and disorder]. This is what has been reported in a Hadeeth by Abu Hurairah [radiyallaahu-anhu] who said that the Prophet [sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam] said, ‘’ The hour [Last Day] will not be established until [uncorrupted religious] knowledge will be taken away by the [death of upright scholars], earthquakes will be very frequent, time will pass quickly, Al-Fitan [trials and afflictions] will appear, murders will increase, and money will overflow amongst you.’’ [Saheeh Al-Bukhaari Number 1036] So, look at how these signs have occurred one after the other?

The absence of an [upright] knowledge-based authority will create a void in the souls [or hearts] of the people, which cannot be prevented unless they find someone to fill this void. The people will then take ignorant ones as their leaders and thus the following harm will occur:

Taking ignorant ones as leaders occurs as result of the absence of an [upright] authority to consult. A person needs someone to ask and consult, but if he cannot find [upright] scholars because their characteristics are unclear to him and he does not consider them to be scholars, he will look for someone else who portrays himself as a scholar and consult him.

[Also] when the rights of the [upright] scholars are violated, the people will agree with ahlul bidah wal ahawaa [the people of religious innovation and evil desires] and imitate them, because among the ways of ahlul bidah wal ahwaa is that they belittle the [upright] scholars.

Examine any sect or group – those who contradict that which was revealed to the Messenger [sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam] and the path that was followed by the Sahaabah- and you’ll see this behaviour from them [i.e. they belittle the upright scholars]. The affair of the Shee’ah is well-known; the state of the affairs of the khawaarij in relation to this behaviour [i.e. belittling upright scholars] is something that has been mentioned [and is well remembered], and the affair of the Mutazilah [in relation to this affair] is well-known. As for the Soofiyyah, their turning away from the [upright] scholars is evident.

You will not find a sect, group or party that opposes the straight path and exits the path of the Sahaabah, except that they speak against the [upright] scholars, seek to diminish their worth, violate their rights and follow ignorant leaders.

Imaam Ash-Shaatibee [rahimahullaah] said that one of the proponents of bidah amongst  the people of bidah used to seek to give philosophical rhetoric virtue over Fiqh, so he used to say, ‘’The entirety of Ash-Shaafi’ee’s and Abu Haneefah’s knowledge does not go beyond the menstrual towels of the women – meaning: The rulings on menstruation and post-natal bleeding.’’ This is the statement of these deviated ones [i.e. this person and his ilk]. May Allaah destroy them. [Al-I’tisaam 2/239]

One of the harms of violating the rights of the [upright] scholars is that it brings about humiliation and disgrace upon the Ummah. There is no path towards a return to the [upright] religion except through the [upright] scholars. Therefore, if the rights of the [upright] scholars are violated, the people will not recognise them. They will keep away from the [upright scholars] and take ignorant ones as leaders, then how can they be returned to the [upright] religion.

If the upright scholars are dropped [or removed from their rightful status] and the people take ignorant ones as their leaders, then who will return the people to their [upright] religion?! How will they be removed from that state of humiliation and disgrace without the [presence and guidance] of the [upright] scholars?!

Some Etiquettes [of the student] When Present at The Lesson of a Scholar And When Sitting With a Scholar In a Gathering

-One should be eager for the lesson and carry on learning [listening, being attentive etc].

-One should [strive] to understand the scholar’s expressions and indications.

-One should face the scholar [during the lesson].

-One should not busy himself with anything – whilst he is in the scholar’s presence- other than listening to him.

-One should be eager to listen attentively and ask questions properly with good manners and not out of arrogance or obstinacy. [Ref 7]

The purpose behind asking questions is to acquire understanding and know the ruling behind something, or to receive clarification of something that is unclear to you. This is why Imaam Ibnul Qayyim [rahimahullaah] said, ‘’When you sit with a scholar, ask to understand but not out of obstinacy – Meaning: ask to understand that which is difficult for you to understand – to remove ignorance from yourself and so that you can worship Allaah based on clear-sightedness, but not with arrogance and bad manners.’’ [Excerpt from a lesson of Shaikh Abdullaah Al-Bukhaari: https://www.sahab.net/forums/index.php?app=forums&module=forums&controller=topic&id=111243 ]

-One should sit close as much as he is able.

-One should not move too much, except when required.

-One should abandon saying in too many words what may be said in few words during the lesson, even if he is given permission to make a comment.

-One should abandon asking questions during the lesson and should only do so after the lesson.

-If one hears the answer of a scholar [to a question], he should ponder upon it and strive to understand before asking a second time.

-The student should not raise his voice in the presence of his Shaikh.

-The student should hasten to carry out the request of his Shaikh.

-The student should not put himself forward before his Shaikh, but should be at his service.

-The student should address his Shaikh honourably.

-The student should not insist [that his Shaikh does something for him] when the Shaikh is either tired or pre-occupied.

-The student should not persist in asking something which he knows the scholar does not want to talk about.

And in general, the student should be eager -whilst accompanying the scholar- to fulfil those rights- in particular- which Allaah has given the Shaikh, and he should remind himself of Allaah’s [The Blessed and Exalted] statement:

يَـٰٓأَيُّہَا ٱلَّذِينَ ءَامَنُوٓاْ إِذَا قِيلَ لَكُمۡ تَفَسَّحُواْ فِى ٱلۡمَجَـٰلِسِ فَٱفۡسَحُواْ يَفۡسَحِ ٱللَّهُ لَكُمۡ‌ۖ وَإِذَا قِيلَ ٱنشُزُواْ فَٱنشُزُواْ يَرۡفَعِ ٱللَّهُ ٱلَّذِينَ ءَامَنُواْ مِنكُمۡ وَٱلَّذِينَ أُوتُواْ ٱلۡعِلۡمَ دَرَجَـٰتٍ۬‌ۚ وَٱللَّهُ بِمَا تَعۡمَلُونَ خَبِيرٌ۬

O you who believe! When you are told to make room in the assemblies, [spread out and] make room. Allaah will give you [ample] room [from His Mercy]. And when you are told to rise up [for prayers] or for any other good deed, rise up. Allah will exalt in degree those of you who believe, and those who have been granted knowledge. And Allah is Well-Acquainted with what you do. [Surah Al-Mujaadilah’ Aayah 11]

-One should be under the authority of the scholar, whilst sitting in the gathering.

-One should not sit very far from the scholar nor very close when in the sitting in the gathering.

-One should make room for other students who want to sit.

-One should not desire to speak, neither should he argue nor debate.

-One should not start speaking until the scholar begins [and gives him permission].

-One should not impose what is to be spoken about in the sitting without the permission of the Shaikh.

-One should not speak after the Shaikh has spoken, unless given permission by the Shaikh.

-One should not backbite anyone in the presence of the Shaikh.

-One should not make the Shaikh perceive that he is tired [bore] or displeased.

-One should not sit whilst not [desiring] an increase [in knowledge] or whilst having little concern for the sitting.

-One should exercise patience when he experiences something defective from the Shaikh’s character or experiences harshness from him, because the Shaikh is [nothing else] but a human being [i.e. he is not perfect].

The Danger of Telling Lies About The Scholars

Shaikh Uthaymeen [rahimahullaah] was asked about those people [may Allaah guide them] who say, “I have heard some of the scholars saying such and such, or given a Fatwa”; then he [i.e. the one who attributes such a statement to a scholar or scholars] uses this as a basis for his statement or action. So, the Shaikh replied:

Lying about the scholars in affairs related to the Sharee’ah is a great danger. And because of this, it has been reported in a hadeeth that he [i.e. The Messenger of Allaah (Alayhis- Salaatu- Was-Salaam)] said, “Whoever tells a lie against me [intentionally] then let him occupy his seat in Hell-fire.’’ [Bukhaari 107]

Therefore, telling lies against the scholars in affairs related to the Sharee’ah [i.e. falsely saying that they said this or that, or gave a Fatwa about this or that] is a great danger, because it is tantamount to lying against the Sharee’ah. [There are] some people – may Allaah guide them – [who] when his soul finds something suitable [for himself] and he knows that people will not accept [what he will say or do], he chooses a scholar whom the people trust and then forges a false statement concerning the scholar [i.e. that the scholar says such and such]- whether he is right [i.e. regarding the statement or deed he wants the people to accept and for which he sought to transmit a forged statement] or upon falsehood. [Ref 8]

We Had a Tongue Cleaner Over 1400 Years Ago: [Siwaak Is Not Only Specified For Use On The Teeth]

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

Abu Burda narrated, “My father (Abu Musa) said, ‘I came to the Prophet [sallal laahu alayhi wasallam] and saw him carrying a Siwaak in his hand and cleaning his teeth, saying, ‘U’, ‘U’, as if he was retching while the Siwaak was in his mouth'”.

Benefits From This Hadeeth:

It is legislated to use the Siwaak on the tongue for a longer time. As for the teeth, what is more desired is that the Siwaak is made to come into contact with them widthways – across the mouth.

Siwaak is not specified for use on the teeth only. [Ref 1]

Living With Non-Muslims In The West: With Fine Conduct

https://www.abukhadeejah.com/living-with-non-muslims-in-the-west-with-fine-conduct/


Al-Allaamah Zayd Bin Haadi Al-Madkhali [rahimahullaah] said:

Protests [or demonstrations] are newly invented matters in the religion. Every newly invented matter in the religion is a bidah; every bidah is misguidance and every misguidance is in the hell fire [i.e. is a path leading to the hell fire]. Allaah’s legislation is perfect and complete-based on The Book and The Sunnah-and we do not know of anything by way of the evidences in the Book and the Sunnah that makes it permissible for a handful of people to gather for demonstrations, which causes disturbance for the people and time wasting. And greater than this [disturbance and time wasting] is abandonment of the prayers [during protests] and the loss of life [i.e. murder]. If one was to kill a Muslim in a single protest, the one [or those] who called to such protests will carry his sins-be it an individual, a group or those who participate. It has been reported in an authentic hadeeth: The termination of the world means less to Allah than the killing of a Muslim [i.e. without right]. [Saheeh Al-Jaami 9208]

These protests are nothing but bidah and acts of misguidance advocated by shaytaan; [enticed] by the urge of the evil soul and desires. And these enemies [i.e. shaytaan, the urge of the evil soul and desires] do not come together in any affair except that the religion and worldly affairs are destroyed, just as it is the case in these demonstrations [or protests].

The end results of protests [or demonstrations]: Carnage, destruction, wastage of wealth and time and terrorising those living in peace. And how many disadvantages are there in [that]! It is enough to be considered something sinister due to the fact that the Noble Messengers and the Great Prophets who were put to trial and harmed by their people did not hold protests [or demonstrations]. Neither did they engage in plotting to cause explosions nor committing suicide; rather Islaam has forbidden all of that.

Those who call to protests [or demonstrations] and hold that there is success in it, they are mistaken and they have missed the correct path. Rectification of the affairs can only be by way of the Book and The Sunnah in accordance with the understanding of those scholars who are firmly grounded in knowledge. So whoever calls the people to this chaos, then indeed he has brought about a means to corrupting the land and the slaves, and what has occurred – in the past and at present- is a witness to that.

Therefore, we warn the students of knowledge that they are not persuaded by the speech of those who allow protests [or demonstrations]. They say that peaceful demonstrations are permissible-as they categorise it into this categorisation- without proofs and concrete evidence from the Book and the Sunnah- neither from the actions of the Messenger and the Noble Sahaabah nor from the Notable Imaams; rather the verdict on protests [or demonstrations] is only what has been stated earlier and as well as what has been written by other than myself [i.e. protests (or demonstrations) are not permissible]

[Slightly paraphrased. Source: الأفنان وتوحيد ابن خزيمة وحديث عن المظاهرات4-4-1432هـ.]

Question to Shaikh Rabee Bin Haadi [hafidhahullaah]: Going out to demonstrations, [initiating] revolutions and nurturing the youth upon it; is this from the methodology of Ahlus Sunnah Wal Jamaa’ah or not, whether [carried] out within or outside the Muslim countries? Answer: This is the methodology of Marx (i.e. Carl Marx), Lenin (i.e. Vladimir Lenin) and those similar to them. It is not from the Islamic methodology. Revolutions, bloodshed, trials and troubles are Marx’s and Lenin’s school of thought.
