Why Are You The Only One Defending Yourself?! [A Statement of The Faint-hearted and Discouragers]

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

Allaah [The Exalted] said: [فَٱصۡبِرۡ إِنَّ وَعۡدَ ٱللَّهِ حَقٌّ۬‌ۖ وَلَا يَسۡتَخِفَّنَّكَ ٱلَّذِينَ لَا يُوقِنُونَ – So be patient. Indeed, the promise of Allaah is true. And let not those who have no certainty of faith, discourage you from conveying Allah’s Message (which you are obliged to convey)]. [Surah Rum’ Aayah 60]

[فَٱصۡبِرۡ – So be patient]- Meaning, upon that which you have been commanded and in calling them to the [path of] Allaah; even if you see them turning away that should not turn you away from the call. [إِنَّ وَعۡدَ ٱللَّهِ حَقٌّ۬‌ۖ – Indeed, the promise of Allaah is true]- Meaning, there is no doubt about that. And this is from that which aids a person to exercise patience, because when a servant know that his deeds will not be in vain and will find a full reward for it [in the afterlife], then what he faces of hardship will become minor, and it will become much easy for him to bear every difficulty.

[وَلَا يَسۡتَخِفَّنَّكَ ٱلَّذِينَ لَا يُوقِنُونَ – And let not those who have no certainty of faith, discourage you]- Meaning, their Imaan is weak and their certainty is little, so their forbearance becomes lacking as result of that and their patience is little. So, beware out of fear of being discouraged by these people, because unless you are not careful about their affair, they will discourage you and lead you to not being firm in holding fast to the commands and prohibitions, and the soul may assist them in this affair and seek to be similar and to be in agreement with them. (1)

Sixteen years ago, we came across some people in Birmingham, who – when the well-known teachers were attacked and the Salafiyyoon defended them- said, “You people are too emotional! Why do you not wait for the scholars to defend them”. They uttered this statement whilst knowing for certain that neither were such affairs to be returned to scholars nor would scholars consider it something worthy of their attention, because it was related to the misbehaviour of some spiteful local trouble makers and fame seekers. Then when the brothers from the various Maraakiz constantly posted on salafitalk.net to expose Jamiat Ahle Hadeeth UK, they said, “Why do you guys keep on flogging a dead horse?” However, when these same people had a disagreement with someone in some subject matter of the religion, they did not say, “Let me take the affair to scholars”, rather they personally requested that an article is produced based on the statements of the scholars to present their view, even though they were the same people who objected when the well known teachers were defended against the vile local fame seekers and trouble makers. We knew that these people hid sentiments and that did manifest from time to time, but they still hanged around with Salafiyyoon. However, when clarity became too burdensome for them, they disappeared from the scene.

At present we hear another group saying, “It seems that you are on your own, because none else is defending or backing you up in this affair of Dr Ibraaheem Ar-Ruhayli besides yourselves”.

 

Firstly, we say to them: The affair has already been settled, so read the following articles..

Muhammad Ibn Hādi’s Allegations and the Response of the Major Scholars in Light of the Manhaj of the Salaf

Shaykh Rabiʿ’s request for Shaykh Muḥammad bin Hādī to justify his tabdīʿ of Salafī students and shaykhs and to explicitly name the major scholars he accused of being “affected” and “destroyed” by the “Ṣaʿāfiqah” – one month, no answer: https://twitter.com/abuiyaadsp/status/1018974451269033986?lang=en-GB

Clarification by Shaikh Abu Iyaad – [A warning, a Refutation, Rebuke Against a Mistake or Behaviour Does Not Automatically Necessitate Tabdee; & a Mention of Shaikh Muhammad Bin Haadi’s & Shaikh Sulaymaan Ar-Ruhaylee’s Affair- [From 52mins onwards]: https://mixlr.com/albaseerah/showreel/narration-from-the-salaf-regarding-creed-and-methodology

 

Secondly, we say to them: The affair is neither about numbers nor personalities who come to one’s defense, rather the affair is about truth. Read Men are Known by Way of the Truth. https://www.wrightstreetmosque.com/men-are-known-by-way-of-the-truth-the-understanding-of-this-statement/

Question to Shaikh Saaleh Al-Fawzaan [may Allaah preserve him]: What is the meaning of the principle: The truth is not known by way of men, rather men are known by way of the truth?

Answer: Its meaning is that we do not merely blindly follow anyone (see footnote a), because it may be that one is blindly followed based on error; it may be that the Mujtahid is mistaken and the one who makes [a statement or holds an opinion] is mistaken, so we do not take [his statement, opinion etc] and say, “This is the statement of such as such; this is truth, because such and such is good, he is a scholar; such and such is Taqiy [i.e. one who fears Allaah]”. We do not say this because he is not infallible and he can make a mistake; so we know men by way of the truth – those who know; those who take [or adhere to] the proofs and indeed they are known to be scholars. As for those who do not give concern [or importance] to the proofs, they are not scholars; they are not people of [sound] understanding and they are not people of knowledge, so their statement is never taken straight away. It is imperative that the proof is presented, so if the proof is established as witness to [what he says or holds etc], then it is the truth; but if he opposes the proof, then indeed [his statement or opinion] is rejected; however if he is a Mujtahid and he is mistaken, he is rewarded [once] due to his Ijtihaad; but if he deliberately holds on to error, he has sinned. [Paraphrased. Refer to video here: https://safeshare.tv/x/tyVyzaoU0tw# ]

Al-Allaamah Rabee Bin Haadi [may Allaah protect him] said, “The seeker of truth is not diverted from the truth, fairness and justice due to admiration of the big personalities and being amazed by them, for indeed the truth is more worthy to be followed. It is not permissible to drop the proofs for the sake of this or that great man. The principle [rule] of the Muslim – the unbiased one, the seeker of truth – is always: [قُلْ هَاتُوا بُرْهَانَكُمْ إِن كُنتُمْ صَادِقِينَ -Say, Bring forth your proofs if you are truthful]. [Surah An-Nahl. Aayah 64] (2)

Therefore, understand this very well that the big personality portrayed about Dr Sulaymaan by the Musaafiqah did not prevent both Al-Allaamah Rabee and Salafipublications to warn against him! Therefore, either a student – in the east or west – has sufficed himself with the warning issued by Al-Allaamah Rabee, or he is genuinely unable to speak, then in that case we remind you of Al-Allaamah Zayd Bin Haadi Al-Mad’khali as follows: “The obligation of refuting the one in opposition to the truth is not lifted due to anticipation of harm, unless it is harm one is not able to bear. So, in this case, Allah does not burden a soul beyond what it can bear. The earth is not devoid of people of knowledge who will carry out refutation against the one in opposition to the truth”. (3) Therefore, do not think that the silence of some people is an indication that the truth will be lost, rather Allaah will protect this sound Manhajus Salafi and facilitate it with scholars and students of knowledge to clarify its sound signposts.

Al-Allaamah Rabee Bin Haadi [may Allaah protect him] was asked, “Shaikh Al-Albaanee, Shaikh Ibn Baaz and Shaikh Uthaymeen have passed away, so who remains from the scholars?”

Answer: Those who remain are numerous and all praise is due to Allaah. Allaah’s Messenger of Allaah [peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him] died and his noble companions [may Allaah be pleased with them] remained. (Imam) Ahmad Ibn Hanbal died and his companions [may Allaah have mercy upon him and them] remained. Ibn Taymiyyah died and his companions [may Allaah have mercy upon him and them] remained. (Imaam Muhammad) Ibn Abdul Wahhaab died and his companions [may Allaah have mercy upon him and them] remained. And those ones [i.e. Albaanee, Ibn Baaz, Uthaymeen (may Allaah have mercy upon him and them)] died and their students and brothers remain by Allaah’s Will. The truth will not be lost. When Umar was stabbed, it was said to him, “Appoint a successor!” He said, “Allaah will not allow His Religion to be lost”. So by Allaah this Religion will never be lost. It is upon you to put shoulder to shoulder and embark upon work- raise the flag of the (authentic) Sunnah and the flag of the truth. “There will not cease to be a group amongst my Ummah manifest upon the truth-neither will they be harmed by those who betray them nor by those who oppose them till Allaah’s promise come to pass (i.e. the day of Judgement)”. By Allaah! Neither knowledge nor the committee of senior scholars have died-all praise is due to Allaah-and there is good and blessing with them. Our Salafi brothers are in the different regions of the world. The world is filled with senior students of knowledge who fill this gap-all praise is due to Allaah. Therefore, neither can the people of falsehood rejoice nor become happy. (4)

So, do not forget to supplicate regarding this affair and in all affairs that are pursued for the sake of truth and clarity.

اللَّهمَّ إنِّي أسألُكَ الثَّباتَ في الأمرِ والعزيمةَ على الرُّشدِ وأسألُكَ شُكرَ نعمتِكَ وحُسنَ عبادتِكَ وأسألُكَ قلبًا سليمًا ولسانًا صادقًا وأسألُكَ من خيرِ ما تَعلمُ وأعوذُ بِكَ من شرِّ ما تعلَمُ وأستغفرُكَ لما تعلَم

“O Allaah! I ask You for firmness in this matter and determination to adhere to the path of guidance; and I ask You to grant me gratitude for Your blessings and to worship You (alone) properly; and I ask You for a sound heart, and I ask you for a truthful tongue, and I ask You for the good of what You know, and I seek Your refuge from the evil of that which You know, and I seek Your forgiveness for what You know (and of course Allaah knows everything and nothing is hidden from His knowledge- the All-Knower, the All-Hearer, the All-Seer). (5)

[1] Fishers In Murky Waters Desperately Attempting to Absolve Dr Muhammad Bin Haadi of Responsibility!

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

Fishers In Murky Waters Desperately Attempting to Absolve Dr Muhammad Bin Haadi and Dr Sulaymaan Ar-Ruhayli of Responsibility By Mentioning Them Alongside Others!

Firstly, we remind the desperate Musaafiqah – SalafiEvents/MarkazUmar and their ilk – that none is above the rulings of the Sharee’ah. Imaam Ash’Shaatibee [may Allaah have mercy upon him] said: Know that Allaah has established this Sharee’ah as a proof against the creation [i.e. mankind and jinn] – the old and young alike; the obedient and the disobedient; the righteous and the wicked. He did not specify the proof against anyone in exclusion of another one. Also all the other revealed laws were established as proof against all the other nations to whom they were revealed. The Sharee’ah is the judge- restrictedly and unrestrictedly, the (source of judgement) and the judge on all those who have reached the age of responsibility. It is the path attached to (what Allaah has ordained) and it is the Greatest Guide. And have you not seen the statement of Allaah [The Most High]?!

وَكَذَٲلِكَ أَوۡحَيۡنَآ إِلَيۡكَ رُوحً۬ا مِّنۡ أَمۡرِنَا‌ۚ مَا كُنتَ تَدۡرِى مَا ٱلۡكِتَـٰبُ وَلَا ٱلۡإِيمَـٰنُ وَلَـٰكِن جَعَلۡنَـٰهُ نُورً۬ا نَّہۡدِى بِهِۦ مَن نَّشَآءُ مِنۡ عِبَادِنَا‌ۚ وَإِنَّكَ لَتَہۡدِىٓ إِلَىٰ صِرَٲطٍ۬ مُّسۡتَقِيمٍ۬

And thus We have sent to you (O Muhammad) Ruhan (an Inspiration, and a Mercy) of Our Command. You knew not what is the Book, nor what is Faith? But We have made it (this Qur’an) a light wherewith We guide whosoever of Our slaves We will. And verily, you (O Muhammad) are indeed guiding (mankind) to the Straight Path (i.e. Allah’s religion of Islamic Monotheism)]. [Surah Ash-Shooraa. Aayah 52]

He [peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him] was the first to be guided to the Book and Eemaan, and then those who followed him. The Book is the Guide and also the Sunnah which was sent down to him explains that guidance (i.e. the Sunnah and the Qur’aan explain each other). All the creation [i.e. mankind and Jinn] are guided by it; therefore, when this is the case, the Sharee’ah is worthy of being a decisive proof against them and a beacon by way of which they are guided to the truth. Their nobility is established in accordance with how far they embrace its rulings- by acting upon them in speech, belief and deeds- and not merely due to the level of their intellects or their nobility amongst their people. That is because Allaah [The Most High] has determined nobility through Taqwa and not other than it. Allaah [The Most High] said: [إِنَّ أَڪۡرَمَكُمۡ عِندَ ٱللَّهِ أَتۡقَٮٰكُمۡ‌ۚ- Verily, the most honourable of you with Allah is that (believer) who has At-Taqwa] [Surah Al-Hujuraat. Aayah 13]

The one who is the firmest in adherence to the Sharee’ah is more worthy of honour and nobility, but it is not possible for the one below this to reach the highest level of honour based on his adherence to the Sharee’ah. Therefore, honour is (measured) in accordance with one’s (level of adherence) to the Sharee’ah. (1)

Secondly, we say to these desperate people that neither Dr Muhammad Bin Haadi’s and Dr Sulaymaan’s wrongdoing nor your wrongdoings (Al-Musaafiqah) will disappear and be forgotten regardless how many visitors and helpers you seek to invite – in the name of Dawah – to make your affair either forgotten or look good. None will bear the burden of your wrongdoings nor anyone else is to be held accountable as long as you deliberately aid Dr Muhammad after his affair is clear. If you persist, then the statement of Al-Allaamah Rabee Bin Haadi [may Allaah protect him] and Shaikh Abu Iyaad applies to you and anyone else who deliberately defends him after the evidence are made very clear to him. https://twitter.com/IslamStoke/status/1546118439517011969

Clarification by Shaikh Abu Iyaad – [A warning, a Refutation, Rebuke Against a Mistake or Behaviour Does Not Automatically Necessitate Tabdee; & a Mention of Shaikh Muhammad Bin Haadi’s & Shaikh Sulaymaan Ar-Ruhaylee’s Affair- [From 52mins onwards]: https://mixlr.com/albaseerah/showreel/narration-from-the-salaf-regarding-creed-and-methodology

Thirdly, as for those who say, “How do you know whether he has repented or not?” We say to them, “Where is his repentance for making false Tabdee. He committed his crime openly and must repent openly as long as he is alive, just as Abul Hasan Al-Ash’ari [may Allaah have mercy upon him] openly recanted openly”.

As for those who say, “So, even if some people of knowledge say that he has recanted you will not accept it?” We say to him, “Those who informed us about his crime with tangible unambiguous proofs, such as Al-Allaamah Rabee and Salafipublications, are more reliable than Dr Muhammad Bin Haadi in this affair. Here is an example of this affair regarding Imaam Ahmad and his son -Saaleh, and Daawud Bin Ali Al-Asbahaanee:

وكان بينه وبين صالح بن أحمد بن حنبل حسن ، فكلم صالحا أن يتلطف له في الاستئذان على أبيه ، فأتى صالح أباه ، فقال : رجل سألني أن يأتيك ، فقال : ما اسمه ؟ قال : داود . قال : من أين هو ؟ قال : من أصبهان . فكان صالح يروغ عن تعريفه ، فما زال الإمام أحمد يفحص ، حتى فطن به ، فقال : هذا قد كتب إلى محمد بن يحيى في أمره أنه زعم أن القرآن محدث ، فلا يقربني . فقال : يا أبه ! إنه ينتفي من هذا وينكره . فقال : محمد بن يحيى أصدق منه ، لا تأذن له .

Daawud Ibn Ali Al-Asbahaanee came to Saaleh Ibn Imaam Ahmad Ibn Hanbal with whom he used to have a good relationship; so he spoke to Saaleh Ibn Imaam Ahmad to make it easy for him to meet his father. Saaleh approached his father (Imaam Ahmad) and said, “A man asked me to bring him to you”. Imaam Ahmad said, “What is his name?” He said, “Daawud”. Imaam Ahmad said, “Where is he from?” He said, “Asbahaan”. At this point Saaleh was seeking to refrain from describing Daawud, but Imaam Ahmad did not cease enquiring until he knew who he was. Then he said, “Muhammad Bin Yahyaa An-Naysabooree wrote to me regarding the affair of this one, that he claims that the Qur’aan is something that was brought into existence [i.e. created], so do not bring him near me”. Saaleh said, “O my father! He has negated and renounced this (statement, belief)”. Imaam Ahmad replied, “Muhammad Bin Yahyaa is more trustworthy than him. Do not give him access (to me)”. (2) [End of quote]

Therefore, even if Dr Muhammad Bin Haadi tells someone else that he has recanted or someone makes this claim on his behalf, whilst he is still alive, we say to him, “Al-Allaamah Rabee and Salafipublications are more trustworthy than Dr Muhammad in this affair and they have informed us of what he did – Tabdee without proof. When they ascertain that he has repented and recanted, then we will accept it, otherwise, there’s no need for him to use third parties if he was to do so based on this speculation of yours”. Read here: Reminder: Shaykh Rabiʿ’s request for Shaykh Muḥammad bin Hādī to justify his tabdīʿ of Salafī students and shaykhs and to explicitly name the major scholars he accused of being “affected” and “destroyed” by the “Ṣaʿāfiqah” – one month, no answer:

https://abukhadeejah.com/muhammad-hadi-allegations-and-response-of-the-major-scholars/

As for the one who says, “But some scholars do not say anything negative about him.” We say to him: Here is a clear answer for you… https://salaficentre.com/2022/08/11/what-should-we-remember-when-tricksters-and-deceivers-at-salafievents-and-markazumar-gather-names-of-mashaayikh-to-elevate-themselves-and-trivialise-dr-muhammad-bin-haadis-grave-mistakes/

Therefore, regardless who praises Dr Muhammad Bin Haadi and his staunch supporter Dr Ibraaheem Ar-Ruhalyli, and regardless who sits with them on the same platform, then indeed that will not nullify the fact that they are still upon error until they openly recant. Here is an example to follow regarding scholars of high status who recanted mistakes: https://salaficentre.com/2022/07/16/recanting-mistakes-repentance-and-humbling-oneself-by-ibnul-arabi-al-allaamah-rabee-al-allaamah-al-muallimee-and-shaikh-abdus-salaam-burgess/

What Should We Remember When Tricksters and Deceivers at SalafiEvents and MarkazUmar Gather Names of Mashaayikh to Elevate Themselves and Trivialise Dr Muhammad Bin Haadi’s Grave Mistakes?!

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

Al-Allaamah Ubaid Bin Abdillaah Al-Jaabiri [may Allaah protect him] said: The one who knows of a mistake and it is clear to him, then it is not permissible for him to blindly follow a scholar to whom an affair is hidden. And indeed you already heard yesterday that the scholars are not infallible in their Ijtihaadaat. Therefore, it is not permissible to adopt them (i.e. the mistakes of the scholars) as a methodology (to follow).

A scholar from Ahlus Sunnah is only a human; he can be distracted and forgetful; he can be deceived by evil people; or he used to consider that man to be trustworthy–who has now been declared untrustworthy–and he deceives him. The witnesses to this affair are many, because many of those whose status has been dropped– due to been declared unreliable based on evidence–are in reality people who wage war against the Sunnah and its people. So they come along with copies of their books and read it to the distinguished scholars–those whom virtue and leadership is witnessed for them in the religion–and the affair of this trickster and plotter is hidden from that noble scholar, which had he known about it the status of this person would have dropped in his eyes.

So this scholar gives praise based on what he heard. And if the book (of this trickster) is printed, it is disseminated and transmitted by his supporters and they spread a good reputation about him. Thus there are those who argue saying, “such and such praised him–Al-Albaanee (rahimahullaah), or Ibn Baaz (rahimahullaah), or Ibn Al-Uthaymeen (rahimahullaah) praised this book. However these scholars are excused; rather this trickster was hidden from that scholar. So, what remains? We establish the evidence against this [deceiver, trickster, intrigant and plotter] from his books. We establish the manifest clarifications against him from his books, and we say to the one who argues with us, “Take it, this is his speech.’’ Therefore, it is obligatory on you to be fair, and to be free from that wild and zealous attachment; and to be free from desires that blind a person. It is obligatory upon you that your search should be for the truth. (1)

Till When Will You Peddle The Bold-Faced Lie That Issues Between (Masjid al-Furqan/Masjid Abi Hurairah) and Markaz at-Tawheed Is Personal and Not Related to Manhaj?!

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

Umar [may Allaah be pleased with him] said, The Messenger [peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him] said: “People were (sometimes) judged by the revealing of a Divine Inspiration during the lifetime of Allah’s Messenger but now there is no longer any more (new revelation). Now we judge you by the deeds you practice publicly, so we will trust and favour the one who does good deeds in front of us, and we will not call him to account about what he is really doing in secret, for Allah will judge him for that; but we will not trust or believe the one who presents to us with an evil deed even if he claims that his intentions were good”. [Saheeh Al-Bukhaari. Number 2641]

Jeylani and Uthmaan at Markaz at-Tawheed (Stoke On Trent)

As for Uthmaan, then indeed it is enough that he is an allied with the obstinate illegal partisans of Greenlane. Read here once again what Salafipublications has been warning against for a very long time, yet the blind think that the issues between the Salafiyyoon and Greenlane Allies in Stoke is personal.

This is the companionship of Markaz at-Tawheed (Stoke on Trent). Abu Hurairah (radiyallaahu-anhu) said, the Messenger (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam) said, “A person is upon the religion of his friend, so let each one of you look at whom he befriends”. [As-Saheehah: 97] Ibn Mas’ood (radiyallaahu-anhu) said: Indeed a person walks alongside and accompanies the one whom he loves and who is like him. (Al Ibaanah 2/476] Al A’maah (rahimahullaah) said: They (the Salaf) did not used to ask anything more about a person after having asked about three affairs: Who he walks with, who he enters upon (i.e. visits) and who he associates with amongst the people”. [Al Ibaanah 2/478] Abdullah Ibn Mas’ood (radiyallaahu anhu) said: Make consideration of the (regions of the) earth by the names given to them and make consideration of a person by his companion”. [Ibaanah 2/497] Mu’aadh Bin Mu’aadh said to Yahyah bin Sa’eed, “aa Abaa Sa’eed! A person may hide his viewpoint from us, but he will not be able to hide this in his son or friend or in one whom he sits with”. [ Ibaanah 2/436] [Translated by Spubs]

Indeed, Markaz at-Tawheed shelters and allies with the hizbiyyoon of Greenlane and their associates, even though they claim to be upon the authentic Sunnah. Allaah [The Most Most High] said:

يَـٰٓأَيُّہَا ٱلَّذِينَ ءَامَنُواْ لِمَ تَقُولُونَ مَا لَا تَفۡعَلُونَ
ڪَبُرَ مَقۡتًا عِندَ ٱللَّهِ أَن تَقُولُواْ مَا لَا تَفۡعَلُونَ

O you who believe! Why do you say that which you do not do? Most hateful it is with Allah that you say that which you do not do. [Surah As-Saff. Aayaat 2-3]

Therefore, when you enter Stoke On Trent, then know without any doubt that there are only two Masjids – [Masjid Al Furqan (105 Roundwell St, Tunstall ST6 5AW) and Masjid Abi Hurairah (North Rd. ST6 2BP) – that are free from all the hizbiyyoon of Greenlane and their allies. We also ask Allaah to guide them or protect us from their falsehood Aameen.

Imaam Albaani [may Allaah have mercy upon him] said, “It is not hidden from every Muslim who is acquainted with the Book, the Sunnah and that which our pious predecessors were upon that the Tahazzub (Illegal partisanship) and gathering amongst the groups that carry different views or different methods (of Dawah) has nothing to do with Islaam; rather in many Aayaat of the Qur’aan our Lord (The Mighty and Majestic) has prohibited us from that. Allaah (The Most High) said:

وَلَا تَكُونُواْ مِنَ ٱلۡمُشۡرِڪِينَ
مِنَ ٱلَّذِينَ فَرَّقُواْ دِينَهُمۡ وَڪَانُواْ شِيَعً۬ا‌ۖ كُلُّ حِزۡبِۭ بِمَا لَدَيۡہِمۡ فَرِحُونَ

”And be not of Al-Mushrikun (the disbelievers in the Oneness of Allah, polytheists, idolaters, etc.). Of those who split up their religion (i.e. who left the true Islamic Monotheism), and became sects, [i.e. they invented new things in the religion (Bid’ah), and followed their vain desires], each sect rejoicing in that which is with it.” [30: 31-32] [Fataawaa Al-Muhimmah Fee Tabseeril Ummah.

Imaam Muhammad Ibn Saaleh Al-Uthaymeen [may Allaah have mercy upon him] said, “There is nothing in the Book or the Sunnah that allows different groups and parties; rather that has been censured in the Book and the Sunnah. Allaah (The Most High) said: [فَتَقَطَّعُوٓاْ أَمۡرَهُم بَيۡنَہُمۡ زُبُرً۬ا‌ۖ كُلُّ حِزۡبِۭ بِمَا لَدَيۡہِمۡ فَرِحُونَ – ”But they (men) have broken their religion among them into sects, each group rejoicing in its belief.”] [23:53]

And there is no doubt that these parties oppose that which Allaah has commanded. Allaah (The Most High) said:

إِنَّ هَـٰذِهِۦۤ أُمَّتُكُمۡ أُمَّةً۬ وَٲحِدَةً۬ وَأَنَا۟ رَبُّڪُمۡ فَٱعۡبُدُونِ

”Truly! This, your Ummah [Sharia or religion (Islamic Monotheism)] is one religion, and I am your Lord, therefore worship Me (Alone).” [21:92] [ Fataawaa Al-Muhimmah Fee Tabseeril Ummah. Page:120]

Imaam Abdul Azeez Bin Baaz [may Allaah have mercy upon him] said, “It is obligated on the scholars to clarify the reality. They should debate every group and give advice to all, so that they can traverse upon the path Allaah has ordained for His slaves, and the path which His Messenger Muhammad (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam) called to. And whoever oversteps this path or remains upon obstinacy, then it is obligatory to expose him”. [Fataawaa Al-Muhimmah Fee Tabseeril Ummah. Page: 116]

This Admin of Markaz at-Tawheed – once again – is judged based on their companionship, allies and associates. Abu Hurairah (radiyallaahu-anhu) said, the Messenger (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam) said, “A person is upon the religion of his friend, so let each one of you look at whom he befriends”. [As-Saheehah: 97] Ibn Mas’ ood (radiyallaahu-anhu) said: Indeed a person walks alongside and accompanies the one whom he loves and who is like him. (Al Ibaanah 2/476] Al A’maah (rahimahullaah) said: They (the Salaf) did not used to ask anything more about a person after having asked about three affairs: Who he walks with, who he enters upon (i.e. visits) and who he associates with amongst the people”. [Al Ibaanah 2/478] Abdullah Ibn Mas’ood (radiyallaahu anhu) said: Make consideration of the (regions of the) earth by the names given to them and make consideration of a person by his companion”. [Ibaanah 2/497] Mu’aadh Bin Mu’aadh said to Yahyah bin Sa’eed, “aa Abaa Sa’eed! A person may hide his viewpoint from us, but he will not be able to hide this in his son or friend or in one whom he sits with”. [ Ibaanah 2/436] [Translated by Spubs]

Imaam Sadi [may Allaah have mercy upon him] said, “Regardless of what you many receive of praise and respect from the people, they judge the people by their associates. Therefore, it is befitting that a person takes pride in accompanying the best of the people and beware of the evil ones. A righteous companion is like a seller of musk; he either gives you some or you get a good smell from him. And the evil companion is like the blower of the bellows, he either burns you or you receive a bad smell from him. And Allaah knows best”. [Noorul Basaa-ir Wal-Albaab Fee Ahkaamil Ibaadaat Wal-Mu-aamalaat Wal-Huqooq Wal-Aadaab: page: 66]

Finally, we say to the Admin of Markaz At-Tawheed: Al-Allaamah Rabee Bin Haadi al-Mad’khali [may Allaah protect him] stated: “All of you hold onto the Rope of Allaah [i.e. The Qur’aan and authentic Sunnah]- Allaah will aid you in this and make you like the sun; return to the understanding of the righteous predecessors, and it is, as I said to you, transmitted (and established) in your presence. This is a challenge to those who oppose this. We are challenging ahlul bidah wal ahwaa [the proponents of innovation in religious affairs and followers of desires] in their creed and politics. We say, between us and you is the (path, understanding of the) pious predecessors and books (of the pious predecessors). Ahmad [i.e. Imaam Ahmad] used to say to the proponents of innovation in religious affairs, “Between us and you are the funerals (i.e. whose funeral will be attended by ahlus sunnah in great numbers)”. We say (i.e. at present), “Between us and you are the books (of the pious predecessors)- the books are present!

Allaah said to His Messenger [peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him]: [قل فَأْتُوا بِالتَّوْرَاةِ فَاتْلُوهَا إِنْ كُنْتُمْ صَادِقِينَ – All food was lawful to the Children of Israel, except what Israel made unlawful for himself before the Taurat (Torah) was revealed. Say (O Muhammad ): “Bring here the Taurat (Torah) and recite it, if you are truthful”]- So they bring the Torah and you proof them to be upon falsehood. We bring the books of the pious predecessors – the Qur’an, the Sunnah, the books of Al-Bukhari, Muslim, Abu Dawood, at-Tirmidhi, an-Nasaa’ee, and what was authored by Ahmad and others; we bring them (to prove) those who are on the path of these (pious predecessors) and those who turn away and oppose them. Just as Allaah challenged the Jews to bring the Torah, so the Torah was brought and they were exposed them, (likewise), we challenge these people to bring the books of the pious predecessors, so that the innovator in religious affairs is exposed, and to clarify who the deviants are- whether us or them? Are they able to challenge? Can they open their mouths like this? We fill our mouths with courage – challenge everyone who says that we are upon other than methodology of the pious predecessors. We, by Allaah, call to the methodology of the pious predecessors- to the Book of Allaah and the Sunnah of Allaah’s Messenger [peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him]. We use the book of Allaah and the Sunnah as proof for our beliefs, our acts of worship, dealings with rulers and their subjects, in dealing with the groups and sects. As for the others, they are upon tricks, deception etc By Allaah, you will not find with them anything but tricks and manipulating the emotions of youth”. Paraphrased.

“Two Hungry Wolves Let Loose Among Sheep” – Two Fame Seekers and Plotters Reappeared With Different Name and Helpers to Cause Splits, But Not a Single Markaz Was Duped!

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

Allaah’s Messenger [peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him] said, “Two hungry wolves let loose among sheep are not more harmful than a person’s craving after wealth and status is to his Religion.” (1)

Imaam Muhamad Ibn Saaleh Al-Uthaymeen [may Allaah have mercy upon him] said, “Two hungry wolves let loose on a flock! Then what will remain from the flock?! Even when a single wolf stops eating because its stomach is full, it still kills the rest of the flock; then what about two hungry wolves let loose on a flock!! Not a single will remain. Likewise, a person who craves for wealth or status will corrupt the religion. And because of this it is obligated on a person that his intention is far removed from this- far removed from craving for wealth and status in the religion. We ask Allaah to aid us to accomplish this”. (2)

Two Plotters and Fame Seekers On a Mission to Cause Splitting!

Read: Beware of those who feign unity, love and support in public whilst working contrary deeds in private: https://twitter.com/abuiyaadsp/status/775068495612612608

After reading the above post by Shaikh Abu Iyaadh and what the perpetrators were planning, then ponder upon the statement of Imaam Fudayl Ibn Iyaad, Shaikhul Islaam ibn Taymiyyah and al-Allaaha Rabee Bin Haadi! Imaam Fudayl [may Allaah have mercy upon him], “There’s none who loves leadership, except that he will envy, transgress, seek after people’s fault (i.e. falsely) and hates that anyone else is mentioned with good”. (3) Shaikhul Islaam Ibn Taymiyyah [may Allaah have mercy upon him] said, “There are many cases where the Nufoos are mixed with Ash-Shahawaat Al-Khafiyyah [i.e. desires that are concealed, subtle etc] that corrupts its fulfilment of (perfect) love of Allaah, servitude to Him and establishment of the religion sincerely for the sake of Allaah, just as Shaddaad Ibn Aws [may Allaa be pleased with him] said,’‘O Arabs! Indeed, the affair I fear for you the most is Riyaa and Shahwa Al-Khafiyyah’. It was said to Abu Daawud As-Sijistaani, ‘What is Ash-Shahwa Al-Khafiyyah?’ He said, ‘Love of leadership'”. (4) Al-Allaamah Rabee Bin Haadi Al-Mad’khali [may Allaah preserve him] said, “Many of those who love leadership split the Salafis”. [listen here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vIDZmsAclsY ]

It used to be said that whoever perpetrates these three acts will be haunted by them: [a] Rebellion against Allaah’s commandments. Allaah [The Most High] said: [يَا أَيُّهَا النَّاسُ إِنَّمَا بَغْيُكُمْ عَلَىٰ أَنْفُسِكُمْ – O mankind! Your rebellion (disobedience to Allah) is only against your ownselves]. [Surah Yunus: Ayah: 23] [b] Evil plotting: Allaah [The Most High] said: [وَلَا يَحِيقُ الْمَكْرُ السَّيِّئُ إِلَّا بِأَهْلِهِ – But the evil plot encompasses only him who makes it]. [Surah Faatir: Ayah: 43][3] Breaking pledges: Allaah [The Most High] said: [فَمَنْ نَكَثَ فَإِنَّمَا يَنْكُثُ عَلَىٰ نَفْسِهِ – Then whosoever breaks his pledge only breaks it to his own harm]. [Surah Al-Fath: Ayah: 10] (5)

Then finally, listen to Shaikh Abdul Waahid [may Allaah preserve him] in the link:

[3] What’s Your Problem Akhee or Ukhtee? Are You Being Judgmental?

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

What’s your problem Akhee or Ukhtee? Are you being judgmental?

Answer: I am only narrating a hadeeth of Messenger [peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him] regarding the deviated sects. The Messenger [peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him] said, ”The Jews were divided into seventy-one sects, one of which is in Paradise and seventy are in the Fire. The Christians were divided into seventy-two sects, seventy-one of which are in the Fire and one is in Paradise”. By the One in Whose hand is the soul of Muhammad, my Ummah will be divided into seventy-three sects, one of which will be in Paradise and seventy-two will be in the Fire”. It was said, “O Messenger of Allaah! Who are they?” He said, “Al-Jamaa’ah”.(1) In another narration, the Prophet [peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him] said, “My Ummah will divide into seventy-three sects, all of them will be in the Fire except for one, and that is the Jamāʿah”. It was said, “And who are they, O Allāh’s Messenger?” He responded, “That which I and my Companions are upon today”.(2)

Hafs Bin Humaid [may Allaah have mercy upon him] said, “I said to Abdullaah Ibnul Mubaarak [may Allaah have mercy upon him], ‘How many sects has this Ummah spilt into?’ So he said, ‘The foundation of the sects are four: The shia, the hurooriyyah (i.e. khawaarij), the qadariyyah and the murji’ah. The shia (further) split into twenty-two sects; the hurooriyyah (further) split into twenty-one sects; the qadariyyah (further) split into sixteen sects and the murji’ah (further) split into thirteen sects’”. [Al-Ibaanah of Ibn Battah 1/379-380]

Question to Imaam Abdul Azeez Bin Baaz [may Allaah have mercy upon him]: What is the intent behind the Messenger’s ﷺ statement when he spoke about the Ummah in the hadith: “All of them (the sects) are in the fire except one” and what is that one?. Also, will all the other 72 (deviant) sects be in the fire for eternity? Benefit us.

The answer: The prophet ﷺ said, “The Jews split into 71 sects, meaning all of them are astray and their affair ruined, except one. The Christians split into 72 sects, meaning all of them are astray and their affair ruined, except one. And this Ummah will split into 73 sects- all of them in the fire, except one. This one group is Ahlus Sunnah Wal Jamaa’a [those who firmly adhere to the authentic Prophetic Sunnah and are united upon that] – the companions of the Prophet and those who follow them exactly in faith, the adherents to pure Islamic monotheism and sound faith.

As for the other 72 sects that have been threatened with the fire, among them is one who is a disbeliever (ref a), among them is one who is a sinner and among them is one about whom it is established with clear evidence that he is an innovator in religious affairs. So, the one – among them – that dies in a state of disbelief (ref b) will be in the fire for eternity, the one that dies in a state of adherence to religious innovation that is lesser than major disbelief (ref c) or sins is under the will of Allah, while still threatened with the fire. So, based on this it is known that not all of them are disbelievers, but rather among them is a disbeliever and other than him among the sinners and the innovators in religious affairs. (0.1)

[Refs a and b]: NB: Takfeer – declaring that a Muslim left the fold of Islaam is a judgement that can only be given by the upright scholars and none else: https://www.manhaj.com/manhaj/articles/obkwf-takfir-and-the-excuse-of-ignorance-shaykh-saalih-al-fawzaan.cfm

[Ref c]: NB: All religious innovations are evil, but there are those that will exit a person from the fold of Islaam (Bida’atul Mukaffirah) and those that do not exit a person from the fold of Islaam (Bida’atul Mufassiqah). Al-Allaamah Rabee Bin Haadee Al-Madkhalee [may Allaah preserve him] was asked whether there is a difference between Bidah Al-Mukaffirah and Bidah Al-Mufassiqah; so he replied that there is Bidah Mukaffirah, such as rejecting the Ruyah (i.e. denying that the believers will see Allaah in the afterlife); rejecting Allaah’s Uluww [i.e. denying that Allaah is above his creation –Allaah ascended over the Throne in a way that benefits his majesty)]; invoking other than Allaah; offering slaughtered sacrifice (i.e. animals) to other than Allaah etc. These are affairs of Bidah Al-Mukaffirah (the bidah that is tantamount to disbelief). But we do not make Takfeer of the people who commit this type of Bidah until we establish the proofs against them. That is because some of them (i.e. the people who fall into these affairs) carry doubts and are far away from the era of Prophethood and its light (i.e. guidance). So they fall into the likes these innovations. Rejecting the Ruyah is disbelief; rejecting Allaah’s Uluww is disbelief; the saying that the Qur’aan is created is disbelief-major disbelief. But this person, -[who testifies that none has the right to be worshipped except Allaah and that Muhammad is the messenger of Allaah, and he prays, observes fasting, wants paradise and believes in that] -received the doubts of the people of falsehood, so he falls into the likes of these affairs (i.e. these innovations that are tantamount to disbelief). So we say to him: You have fallen into disbelief and the evidence is this and this, and we clarify for him. So if Allaah grants him Tawfeeq and he returns to the truth, then all praise is due to Allaah. But if not, we declare him a disbeliever after establishing the proofs against him. As for Bidah Al-Mufassiqah it is other than this (i.e. it is not at the level of that which is tantamount to disbelief)…[A paraphrased excerpt. see http://www.rabee.net/ar/questions.php?cat=26&id=484 ]

Some of The Most Well-Known Sects Amongst The Jews Who Either Deviated From The Sound Teachings of Their Prophets or Disbelieved In The Final Messenger Muhammad

* The Fareesiyyoon (Pharisees) or hard-liners: “They were also called Rabbis, erudite scholars, brothers for the sake of God, and they are monastic mystics. They believe in resurrection, in the angels and in the Afterlife. They also believe that the Torah is not the only holy book that is depended upon, but rather there are oral narratives that were later written and called the Talmud”.

* The Saddaaqiyyoon (Sadducees): “It was a name given to them because they were known to be deniers, so their enemies called them sedducees, because they denied the resurrection, the recompense, the paradise, the fire, the existence of the angels, the awaited Messiah. They believed that the reward for good deeds is a blessing and only something good in this life, and that evil deeds brings about crises and troubles for its doer”.

*The Saamirah: “They were a people who lived in the mountains of Jerusalem. They entered Judaism but they were not from the children of Israel. They affirmed the Prophethood of Moosaa, Haaroon and Yu’sha bin Noon [peace be upon them], but not the Prophethood of those after them. Their Qiblah was towards a mountain between Jerusalem and Nablus called Grezim. Their language is not the Hebrew language of the Jews, but rather a language close to it. This sect splintered into many groups which have different rulings and laws. They acknowledge the hereafter, reward and punishment in the hereafter, and some of their groups claim that the reward and punishment is only limited in this world”.

*The Muta’assibah (or Fanatical Partisans): “They were a group whose thought was close to that of the Pharisees, but they were very aggressive and believed in assassinating anyone who disagreed with them. They were also called Saffaakoon [Those Eager to Commit Murder], and they committed pillage, plunder, and transgressed against everyone who accepts submission to others besides them. Hostility occurred between them and the Pharisees because the Pharisees submitted to the Romans. Some of the researchers consider them to be from the political or nationalistic sects, even though their movement started within a religious framework, but great was their crimes which they committed from one place to another”.

*The Qurraa’oon (Reciters): “They were a small group of Jews and were given this name because they were reciters of the Torah. They appeared after the decline of the Pharisees. They only recognized the Old Testament, and they neither submit to the Talmud nor acknowledge it because they believe that they have freedom to explain the Torah and rectify the mistakes that occurred in some of its explanations”.

*The Al-Katabatu- (The Writers or Scribes): “This name was given to a group of Jews whose profession was to write the law for those who request it, and their job, besides writing and transcribing, was to preach, in order to obtain money from copying the law and preaching. And they have titles such as “Al-Hukamaa- Wise Men”. They established schools for education and the goal behind that was to gather money”.

*The Saba’iyyah: “They were the followers of Abdullah bin Saba, who entered Islam to (attempt) destroying it from within. He was the one who provoked the people against Uthmaan Bin Affaan [may Allaah be pleased with him] until he was murdered. He fabricated ahadeeth and he was the pioneer of political strife in Islam”.

[2] What’s Your Problem Akhee or Ukhtee?

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

Question: What’s your problem Akhi or Ukhtee! Why do you always want to cause fitna by mentioning Manhaj issues and seeking to divide the people?! Answer: My answer is what the Salafi scholars have stated regarding this affair as follows.

Question to Al-Allaamah Rabee [may Allaah preserve him]: Some say that clarifying the Manhaj [Methodology] of the Salafus Saaleh [righteous predecessors] is a reason behind setbacks among the youth, and that silence is the wisdom that would be more effective in bringing about uprightness and the means that is more likely to bring about guidance. What is the ruling on this statement?

Response: Silence is tantamount to concealment of truth. Allaah [The Exalted] said:

إِنَّ الَّذِينَ يَكْتُمُونَ مَا أَنزَلْنَا مِنَ الْبَيِّنَاتِ وَالْهُدَىٰ مِن بَعْدِ مَا بَيَّنَّاهُ لِلنَّاسِ فِي الْكِتَابِ ۙ أُولَٰئِكَ يَلْعَنُهُمُ اللَّهُ وَيَلْعَنُهُمُ اللَّاعِنُونَ

Verily, those who conceal the clear proofs, evidences and the guidance, which We have sent down, after We have made it clear for the people in the Book, they are the ones cursed by Allah and cursed by the cursers. [Surah Al-Baqarah. Aayah 159]

This act of concealment of theirs, they call it wisdom; this act that is tantamount to protecting bidah, they call it wisdom; how would the people know the truth whilst you are silent?! The trials and doubts are brought forth by Ahlul Bidah Wal Ahwaa [the people of religious innovation and desires]. And the call to Allaah-to the Book of Allaah, adherence to the Book of Allaah and the Sunnah-is the call that will unite all the Ummah. All the trials, splitting and (blameworthy) differing came from the path of Ahlul Baatil and Ahlul Fitan [the proponents of falsehood and initiators of trials]. And they [i.e. the people of baatil and fitan] do not keep quiet- they spread their falsehoods in their newspapers, magazines and audio tapes, while wishing that the voice of truth should be silent. In their view, the voice of truth is what should be silent and the voice of falsehood should be raised and spread in the earth! Do they remain silent?! The people of falsehood do not remain silent-they neither abate nor slow down. They have [ خطط جهنمية -i.e. paths or footsteps leading to the hell fire] which they enforce and thereafter they demand silence from the people of truth! Allaah said to Muhammad [peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him]:

وَدُّوا لَوْ تُدْهِنُ فَيُدْهِنُونَ
وَلَا تُطِعْ كُلَّ حَلَّافٍ مَّهِينٍ
هَمَّازٍ مَّشَّاءٍ بِنَمِيمٍ
مَّنَّاعٍ لِّلْخَيْرِ مُعْتَدٍ أَثِيمٍ
عُتُلٍّ بَعْدَ ذَٰلِكَ زَنِيمٍ
أَن كَانَ ذَا مَالٍ وَبَنِينَ
إِذَا تُتْلَىٰ عَلَيْهِ آيَاتُنَا قَالَ أَسَاطِيرُ الْأَوَّلِينَ

They wish that you should compromise (in religion out of courtesy) with them, so they (too) would compromise with you. And obey not everyone who swears much, and is considered worthless, a slanderer, going about with calumnies, hinderer of the good, transgressor, sinful, cruel, after all that base-born (of illegitimate birth). (He was so) because he had wealth and children. When Our Verses (of the Qur’an) are recited to him, he says: “Tales of the men of old!” [Surah Al-Qalam. Aayaat 9-15]

So they approach the Salafi Methodology and say to you, “This tear apart! This [causes] splits!” Rather, the Ahwaa [the bidah etc] and the Dalaalaat [affairs of misguidance] are what splits and tears the Ummah apart, which the people of falsehood are ardent in spreading in the internet -at present- and places of falsehood-in the newspapers, magazines and the schools. They spread their falsehood in every place, but the very thing that is difficult for them is to hear the voice of truth! [Kashf As-Sitaar pages 28-29. slightly paraphrased]

[12] Usaamah Ibn Ataayaa – [The Pottymouth Vile Hater]: Conclusion of Section 1 of This Series With a Reflection On Al-Allaamah Ubaid’s Precise Observation, Tribute to Upright UK Salafi Senior Students and The Maraakiz

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

Few years ago when Abu Eesa Niamatullah unleashed his vile tirade against the Salafiyyoon, Shaikh Abu Iyaad exposed his reality as follows: “There is a difference between Yasir Qadhi and Abu Eesa Niamatullah. Yasir Qadhi is smarter and shrewder in knowing how to play politics in the public da’wah scene in order to maintain (apparent) consistency. Abu Eesa Niamtullah is dumb and has with him a certain bruteness that strips him of any semblance of aql (intellect). You only need to prod him once and the “pathological hatred” he harbours (whilst accusing others of it) pours out like water out of a jug, and that which he accuses the Salafis of (of unjust rulings on people), pours out freely, without hindrance from his heart and soul with the ferociousness of a lion, yet the thought and intelligence of a domestic turkey. That’s what has happened in short of a few days, and these are realities that Abu Eesa Niamatullah has revealed about himself in short of three pages worth of Facebook rants. This series of articles is an elaboration upon this reality, and whilst some may protest these descriptions we are using here, we are only describing what a man reveals of himself through his speech and action. Further, what are these words of ours compared to what you are going to read from Abu Eesa Niamatullah in the articles to follow? Yes, that’s a question you should start asking now, so that you anticipate the shock before it comes. Go ahead, read Part 3 and try telling us we haven’t spoken the truth. [End of quote] Read full article: http://www.salafis.com/articles/sbnafnr-evaluating-the-claim-of-salafiyyah-by-abu-eesa-niamatullah.cfm

Indeed, at present we witness the same behaviour from the hater Usaamah Ibn Ataayaa, so here – before quoting the precise description given by Al-Allaamah Ubaid regarding Usaamah’s state of affairs, we borrow some of Shaikh Abu Iyaad’s words, whilst attempting to apply some of it to Usaamah’s affair. We say, “Usaamah is dumb and has with him a certain bruteness that strips him of any semblance of aql (intellect). You only need to prod him once and the “pathological hatred” he harbours (whilst accusing others of it) pours out like water out of a jug, and that which he accuses the Salafis of Haddaadiyyah, Khaarijiyyah, Hizbiyyah, pours out freely, without hindrance from his heart and soul with the ferociousness of a lion, yet the thought and intelligence of a domestic turkey. That’s what has happened in short of a few days, and these are realities that Usaamah has revealed about himself recently. We have already responded to his madness in the following links”.

[11b] Usaamah Ibn Ataayaa – [The Pottymouth Vile Hater], Reality of That Which His False Tabdee Necessitates and Calling Him – Between Us and Him – to Invoke The Curse of Allaah Upon The Liars!

Finally, contemplate on that which vile – slanderous – Usaamah has stated about us without an iota of proof – (neither cited a single error of ours that would warrant Tabdee nor a single sound principle to back up his satanic claim that we are Haddaadiyyah, Khawaarij, Hizbiyyoon, and that we pretend to be Salafiyyoon in Aqeedah); then thereafter contemplate on precise statement of Al-Allaamah Ubaid Bin Abdillaah Al-Jaabiri [may Allaah protect him] when he stated about Usaamah’s state of affairs: [وصل الأمر إلى حد الجنون والطيش وخفة العقل – the affair has reached the point of madness, recklessness and lightmindedness]!

May Allaah continue to bestow this Ummah scholars the likes of Al-Allaamah Ubaid, for indeed this description regarding Usaamah’s state of affairs is very precise. His affair has reached this state, because – in this particular affair- he has lost the ability to distinguish between good and evil, beauty and repugnance; neither measured his words based on the Sharee’ah nor gave thought to its extremely evil consequences, but rather he is one drowned in blameworthy hatred and vain desires in this subject matter. Shaikhul Islaam Ibn Taymiyyah [may Allaah have mercy upon him] said, “The soul has its own whims and desires, which it delights in attaining and enjoy. Sound reasoning and knowledge (guided by the revelation) regarding the harmfulness of these actions in this worldly and the Hereafter prevents those (desires and whims from approaching such harm). So if (sound) intellect (guided by divine revelation) is removed from the guard, the soul is let loose to pursue its whims”. [Al-Istiqaamah. slightly paraphrased 2/144]

Imaam Ibnul Qayyim [may Allaah have mercy upon him] said: “There are two (types) of strengths within the soul: The strength of abstinence and the strength of courage. The reality of patience is that one makes the strength of courageousness a means of action in what benefits him and the strength of abstinence a means of action in refraining from what is harmful to him. Among the people, there is one whose patience in carrying out what benefits him and being firm upon it is stronger than his patience in refraining from what is harmful to him; so he exercises patience in facing difficulty whilst carrying out acts of obedience, but he does not exercise patience in refraining from urges towards what he is forbidden. And among them, there is one whose patience in refraining from things that are in opposition to the religion is stronger than his patience in carrying out acts of obedience, and among them there is one who does not exercise patience in both affairs. The best of people are those who fulfil both affairs. Many people patiently bear the hardship of praying Tahajjud during hot and cold nights, and the difficulty in fasting; but they do not exercise patience in refraining from looking at forbidden things. Many people exercise patience in refraining from looking at the forbidden things and inclination towards [forbidden] images, but they do not exercise patience in commanding good and forbidding evil. [An Excerpt from Uddatus Saabireen. page 37. Slightly paraphrased]

Imaam Ibnul Jawzi [may Allaah have mercy upon him] said: know that (forbidden) desires urges a person towards immediate pleasures without him pondering upon its evil consequences- urges him towards short-lived pleasures, even though it is a cause of pain and harm in this life and a barrier to pleasure in the Afterlife. As for a sensible person, he keeps away from pleasures whose result will be pain and desires whose result will be regret. This is enough as praise regarding what sound intellect necessitates and a rebuke against uncontrolled desires. Know that (forbidden) desires an overcome a person in the different fields of study, exits him from the confines of sound reasoning and enters him into behaviour that is tantamount to madness [or folly]. It might enter affairs of knowledge and thus leads a person to oppose that which sound knowledge commands, and it might enter Zuhd and thus leads him to Riyaa.

A person should ponder upon the consequences of (forbidden) desires, because many people are deprived of virtue and find themselves in a state of depravity due to it. And how many types of (unhealthy) food are there that leads to illness due to an unrestrained desire [for them]! And how many mistakes violates the honour of a person, leads to an evil mention of him as well as the guilt of sinning due to unrestrained desires, yet he still does not give thought to anything else except his desires! The best description regarding him is that of one who finds himself in a tannery, for he does not really notice its smell properly until he exits it and then realises where he was.

A sensible person should imagine the dishonour that will come to him due to his desires and the harm that results from those pleasures, for indeed he will see that- in most cases- they occur as result of those desires and pleasures. A person should think about how (the consequences of forbidden desires and pleasures do affect) others, then he should ponder and get a hint of its end results, for indeed he will see the blameworthiness of that which is known regarding them if he were to be guilty of it. A person should reflect upon those pleasures, because (sound) intellect [guided by sound divine revelation] will make him realise that they are nothing more than [lowly] desires and a state of blindness. A person should contemplate on the honour a person receives due to been given the upper hand and the humiliation found in subjugation, for indeed there is none who overcomes his [lowly] desires except that his honour is strengthened; and there is none who is subjugated by his desires except that he will find humiliation and subjugation in his soul. A person should contemplate on the benefits of opposing one’s [lowly] desires, such as the commendation attached to it in this worldly life, safety of the soul and safeguard of one’s honour, as well as reward in the afterlife. [Source: An Excerpt from Dhammul Hawaa’ pages 36-38. Slightly paraphrased]

All praise be to Allaah, indeed, neither our scholars and their upright students nor the Maraakiz have engaged in the likes of that which Usaamah has engaged in with his vile tongue – the very affair that has manifested his extremely idiotic behaviour. Imaam Abu Haatim – Ibn Hibbaan [may Allaah have mercy upon him- stated: “One the greatest signs of idiocy in an idiot is his tongue, because indeed his heart is on the tip of his tongue, whatever comes to his heart his tongue utters”. [Rawdatul Uqalaa. page 121]

The Poet said:

يُخاطِبُني السَفيهُ بِكُلِّ قُبحٍ
فَأَكرَهُ أَن أَكونَ لَهُ مُجيبا
يَزيدُ سَفاهَةً فَأَزيدُ حِلماً
كَعودٍ زادَهُ الإِحراقُ طيبا

The fool addresses me with all ugliness …… (but) I hate to be a responder to him ……(so) he increases in foolishness, I increase in forbearance…… just as Oud increases in good smell when burnt.

We ask Allaah to protect us from Usaamah’s madness, guide him and grant us all the best of manners. Abdullah Ibn Mas’ood [may Allah be pleased with him] reported that the Prophet [peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him] said: [اللهم كما حَسَّنْت خَلْقِي فَحَسِّنْ خُلُقِي – O Allah! Just as You made my external form beautiful, make my character beautiful as well]. https://salaficentre.com/2021/07/31/o-allah-just-as-you-made-my-external-form-beautiful-make-my-character-beautiful-as-well/

And Allaah knows best. This is the end of part 1 of this series and Part 2 will begin soon InShaaAllaah.

[لَا حَوْلَ وَلَا قُوَّةَ إِلَّا بِاللهِ – There is neither might nor power (to alternate from one state to another nor move from one thing to another) except by Allaah’s Will]. [Bukhaari 6384 & Muslim 2704]

May Allaah protect us, protect the elder and senior students at Al-Maktabatus Salafiyyah, protect all the students in the various Maraakiz and make us and them good examples for others in the Muslim communities Aameen.

[11b] Usaamah Ibn Ataayaa – [The Pottymouth Vile Hater], Reality of That Which His False Tabdee Necessitates and Calling Him – Between Us and Him – to Invoke The Curse of Allaah Upon The Liars!

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

Dr Muhammad Bin Haadi [may Allaah rectify his affair] made Tabdee without evidence. This is why Al-Allaamah Rabee Bin Haadi Al-Madkhali [may Allaah protect him] sternly demanded evidence from Dr Muhammad Bin Haadi for his oppressive judgements, but received no reply. See here: Reminder: Shaykh Rabiʿ’s request for Shaykh Muḥammad bin Hādī to justify his tabdīʿ of Salafī students and shaykhs and to explicitly name the major scholars he accused of being “affected” and “destroyed” by the “Ṣaʿāfiqah” – one month, no answer: https://twitter.com/abuiyaadsp/status/1018974451269033986?lang=en-GB

Likewise, vile Usaamah made Tabdee of us without any proof and even extended the affair to a far greater extent. He stated that amongst us are those hiding the doctrine of the Khawaarij, that we are Haddaadees, ahlul bidah, pretenders in our beliefs as Salafiyyoon, hizbiyyoon etc. He has not recanted, rather even some of the ignorant Musaafiqah are parroting his satanic verdict.

This was our response to him in brief:

[9] Usaamah Ibn Ataayaa – [The Pottymouth Vile Hater] – Roaming The Dangerous Borders of Conjecture and Vain Desires By Passing Judgements Without An Atom’s Weight of Proof!

[10] Usaamah Ibn Ataayaa’s – [The Pottymouth Vile Hater] – Verdict of Hizbiyyah Against Us Based on Guessing and Aggravated (Compounded) Ignorance or Vain Desires?!

 

The Consequences of His False Judgement

What are some of the consequences of Tabdee and how is a Mubtadi viewed and dealt with?! The following Aayaat of the Qur’aan and statements of the scholars will give you a brief introduction to the affair. After reading, then ponder regarding the crime of one who passes the judgement of Tabdee based on haste, anger, conjecture, oppression and vain desires. Ahmad Ibn Sinaan Al-Qattaan (rahimahullaah) said: There is no Mubtadi in the world except that he hates ahlul hadeeth, and when a man innovates the sweetness of hadeeth is removed from his heart [Aqeedatus Salaf 102]

Ibnul Jawzi said, Abul Wafaa Ibn Aqeel Al-Faqee said, our Shaikh Abul Fadl Al-Hamdaani said, “The innovators (in) Islam and the fabricators of Hadeeth are worse than the Mulhiddoon [i.e. the heretics (Ref A)], because the heretics aim to corrupt Islam from the outside, whilst these [people] want to corrupt it from within. They [i.e. the innovators and the fabricators of hadeeth] are similar to the people of a country who try to corrupt its state of affairs and the heretics are similar to those who lay a siege from the outside; so the ones from within [i.e. the innovators and fabricators of hadeeth] open the fortress. Therefore, they are more harmful to Islam than those who do not [attribute] themselves to it outwardly”. [Quoted by Shaikh Rabee (may Allaah preserve him) in his Book titled: Al-Mahajjah Al-Baydaa Fee Himaayati As-Sunnati Al-Gharraa’i Min Zallaati Alhlil Akh’taa Wa Zayghi Ahlil Ahwaa’ page: 47]

Allaah [The Most High] said: [ أَفَمَن زُيِّنَ لَهُ سُوءُ عَمَلِهِ فَرَآهُ حَسَنًا – Is he, then, to whom the evil of his deeds made fair seeming, so that he considers it as good (equal to one who is rightly guided)?] [Surah Faatir; Ayah 8] Sa’eed Bin Jubair [rahimahullaah] said, “This was revealed concerning the people of bidah and desires”. [Tafseer Al-Baghawi 3/689]

Shaikhul Islaam Ibn Taymiyyah [may Allaah have mercy upon him] said: The pious predecessors named Ahlul Bidah Wal Furqah [i.e the people of Bidah and Splitting]- those who oppose the Book and the Sunnah- ahlul ahwaa [the people of desires], because of the fact that they accept what they love and reject what they hate based on their desires without guidance from Allaah. [An Excerpt from Majmoo Al-Fataawaa 4/189-190]

Allaah [The Most High] said: [وَلَا تَرۡكَنُوٓاْ إِلَى ٱلَّذِينَ ظَلَمُواْ فَتَمَسَّكُمُ ٱلنَّارُ -And incline not toward those who do wrong, lest the Fire should touch you]. [Surah Hud: Ayah 113]

Al-Allaamah Rabee Bin Haadi [may Allaah protect him] said, “The word [ظلم –wrong] in [this ayah] can [mean] disbelief; it can mean bidah and it can be [فسوق i.e. sinful, immoral behaviour], because (ظلم) can be applicable to all [i.e. in different contexts]. Therefore, we refrain from inclining towards the evil doers, the people of bidah, the Kuffaar, the Ilmaaniyyoon and other than them. And we protect ourselves, our Aqeedah, the Eemaan and sound religion which Allaah has bestowed on us”. [Source: An Excerpt from (الذريعة إلى بيان مقاصد كتاب الشريعة ) Vol 1 pages 192-193. Slightly paraphrased]

Ibn Abbaas [may Allaah be pleased with him and his father] said, “Do not sit with the people of desires; for indeed it causes sickness of the heart”. [Reported by Imaam Al-Aajuree in Ash-Sharee-ah: 1/453]

Imaam Ahmad [may Allaah have mercy upon him] said, “Beware of writing down (knowledge) from one of the people of desires-be it a little or a lot”. [Siyar 11/231]

Sa’eed Ibn Amr Al-Bardha’ee [may Allaah have mercy upon him] said, “I witnessed when Abu Zur’ah was asked about Haarith Al-Muhaasibee and his books; so he said to the questioner: ‘Beware of these books; they are books of bidah and misguidance'”. [Al-Meezaan 2/165]

Sallaam Ibn Abee Mutee [may Allaah have mercy upon him] said, “A man from the people of desires said to Ayyoub As-Sakhtiyaanee, ‘O Abaa-Bakr! I want to ask you about some statement’, so Ayyoub walked away and started gesturing with his finger, saying, ‘Not even half a statement'”. [Reported by Imaam Al-Aajuree in Ash-Sharee-ah 1/440]

 

We Call Usaamah to Mubaahalah

Al-Haafidh Ibn Hajr [rahimahullaah] said, “There is a benefit in the story of the people of Najraan, and in it is that Mubaahalah is legislated against the opposer when he persists upon [falsehood] after the proofs have been manifested. Indeed, Ibn Abbaas [radiyallaahu-anhumaa] did call to it, then Al-Awzaa’ee [rahimahullaah] and some of the scholars. And that which is well known from experience is that the affair of one who performs Mubaahalah – whilst he is one upon falsehood – does not extend beyond the year of the Mubaahalah. This occurred between me and a person who was fanatically supporting some of the heretics and after two months he could not stand up”. [1]

Shaikh Albaanee [rahimahullaah] was asked about the ruling on MUBAAHALAH in relation to worldly matters: Question: The hadith regarding the Najran delegation is well known when they came to the Messenger of Allaah [peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him], and then Allaah revealed:

فَمَنۡ حَآجَّكَ فِيهِ مِنۢ بَعۡدِ مَا جَآءَكَ مِنَ ٱلۡعِلۡمِ فَقُلۡ تَعَالَوۡاْ نَدۡعُ أَبۡنَآءَنَا وَأَبۡنَآءَكُمۡ وَنِسَآءَنَا وَنِسَآءَكُمۡ وَأَنفُسَنَا وَأَنفُسَكُمۡ ثُمَّ نَبۡتَہِلۡ فَنَجۡعَل لَّعۡنَتَ ٱللَّهِ عَلَى ٱلۡڪَـٰذِبِينَ

Then whoever disputes with you concerning him [‘Iesa (Jesus)] after (all this) knowledge that has come to you, [i.e. ‘Iesa (Jesus)] being a slave of Allah, and having no share in Divinity) say: (O Muhammad) “Come, let us call our sons and your sons, our women and your women, ourselves and yourselves – then we pray and invoke (sincerely) the Curse of Allah upon those who lie.” [Surah Aal Imraan. Aayah 61]

So he called them to MUBAAHALAH, but they refused. It is well known to us that MUBAAHALAH is not to be done except in issues related to Aqeedah, but some people amongst the Muslims suggest this ruling in worldly affairs between him and his Muslim brother; meaning, if my Muslim brother owes me money but denies it, then would it be permissible to suggest this ruling between me and my Muslim brother?

Answer: May Allaah bless you. The answer to this question is that it is not permissible to suggest this in such a situation or suggest this Sharee’ah ruling in relation to material issues due to two reasons: Firstly, because this story is related to issues of Aqeedah as you have stated today. Secondly, as for the material issues, then Islaam has legislated a system and principle for it. He [i.e. the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him)] said, “The burden of proof is on the claimant and an oath is a duty upon the one who denies the claim”. So, there is no room for Mubaahalah in this affair, which Allaah [The Mighty and Majestic] legislated in that affair between His Messenger [peace and blessing of Allaah be upon him] and those Christians of the Najran who denied true Islamic Monotheism and persisted on the Trinity. So, this affair is not suggested in another issue besides this because neither is there a narration of the pious predecessors nor a hadeeth regarding it. However, if it must be done, then it can be suggested when two groups of Muslims differ in some ideas or Aqeedah- for example between the Mutazilah and Ahlus Sunnah. It is possible that if some Mu’tazilee is haughty after discussion and after evidences have been presented, then the Sunnee seeks Mubaahalah from him – that may the curse of Allaah be upon the liars. Therefore, it is possible to suggest this in such an affair. [2] But as for the question with regards to suggesting this affair in issues related to material dispute, then this is not permissible. [An Excerpt from ‘Silsilah Al-Hudaa Wan-Noor 703’. Slightly paraphrased]

Usaamah has persisted upon his error and satanic judgement to the extent that even some of the ignorant people are repeating the same judgement against us. All the affairs he has accused us of are related to Creed. We say to him exactly that which Shaikh Abu Iyaad said to lamont Battle: “So I say: Lamont Battle is an ahmaq (fool) and his hamaaqah (foolishness) becomes clearer and clearer to everyone by the day. I will not stoop so low so as to ask him to recant and apologise to me because, judging by his behaviour so far, he does not have that sense of justice and it appears that Shaytaan has gained mastery over his nafs in this issue. So all I will say is that may Allaah’s curse be upon the liar. Whoever is lying, may Allaah’s curse be upon the liar. And if he is truthful, then let him call Allaah to witness and invoke the curse of Allaah upon the liar. I am free and innocent of his evil slander and I have no concern whatsoever with his personal or private affairs”. [3]

Therefore, we also say to Usaamah: Usaamah is an ahmaq (fool) and his hamaaqah (foolishness) becomes clearer and clearer to everyone by the day. We will not stoop so low so as to ask him to recant and apologise to us because, judging by his behaviour so far, he does not have that sense of justice and it appears that Shaytaan has gained mastery over his nafs in this issue. So all we will say is that may Allaah’s curse be upon the liar. Whoever is lying, may Allaah’s curse be upon the liar. And if he is truthful, then let him call Allaah to witness and invoke the curse of Allaah upon the liar. We are free and innocent of his evil slander that we are ahlul bidah, haddaadees, pretenders in our beliefs as Salafiyyoon, hizbiyyoon, and that amongst us are hidden khawaarij etc”.

[2] O Supporters of Khaalid Uthmaan Al-Misri! What Does Your Mentor Intend By “Abu Khadeejah and His Hizb?”]

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

Allaah [The Most High] informed us about the meeting between his two noble Prophets – Musa and Khidr [peace be upon them]: [قَالَ لَهُ ۥ مُوسَىٰ هَلۡ أَتَّبِعُكَ عَلَىٰٓ أَن تُعَلِّمَنِ مِمَّا عُلِّمۡتَ رُشۡدً۬ا – Musa (Moses) said to him (Khidr): May I follow you so that you teach me something of that knowledge (guidance and true path) which you have been taught (by Allah)?] [قَالَ إِنَّكَ لَن تَسۡتَطِيعَ مَعِىَ صَبۡرً۬ا – He (Khidr) said: Verily! You will not be able to have patience with me! “And how can you have patience about a thing which you know not? وَكَيۡفَ تَصۡبِرُ عَلَىٰ مَا لَمۡ تُحِطۡ بِهِۦ خُبۡرً۬ا – And how can you have patience about a thing which you know not?] [Surah Al-Kahf. Verses 66-68]

وَكَيۡفَ تَصۡبِرُ عَلَىٰ مَا لَمۡ تُحِطۡ بِهِۦ خُبۡرً۬ا – And how can you have patience about a thing which you know not?] – Imaam As-Sadi [may Allaah have mercy upon him] said: Meaning, “From this is a command to employ careful deliberation and sound verification, and not rushing to pass judgement on a matter until what is intended by it is known and what its goal is”. (1) [End of quote]

The second affair we would like to make known to the blind reporters of Khaalid’s statement is the principle: “Al-Hukmu Alaa Shay’in Far’un An Tasawwurihee – Passing a judgement on something is to be (firmly linked and based on the sound) understanding of the affair”. Imaam Muhammad Ibn Saaleh Al-Uthaymeen [may Allaah have mercy upon him] said, “You do not pass a judgement on a thing except after being completely acquainted with it, so that the judgement is in accordance with what the real state of affairs is. And if this is not done, then great error occurs”. (2)

Finally, what is a hizb and what is hizbiyyah? Al-Allaamah Rabee [may Allaah protect him] stated:

Everyone who opposes the Salafi Methodology is from the misguided Ahzaab (Groups or Parties). [see “Footnote a” for detail explanation]

Illegal partisanship has no (specific) conditions; Allaah gave the name Hizb [Group or Party] to nations of the past- named the Quraysh a Hizb when they and those with them gathered against the Messenger. They had no organization and they had nothing; therefore, it is not a condition that a hizb is organized; (but) this hizb increases in evil if it is organized.

Fanaticism to a particular thought that contradicts Allaah’s Book and the Messenger’s Sunnah, establishing allegiance and enmity based on it, this is a hizb [Group of illegal partisanship] and Hizbiyyah [illegal partisanship], even if it is not organised (or under an organisation). To adopt Fikran Munharifan [a thought or idea that is contrary to guidance found in the Qur’aan and authentic Sunnah and the understanding of the Sahaabah] and gather people on it, this is a hizb (group of illegal partisanship), whether organized or not. As long as the thought is one that contradicts the Book and the Sunnah (i.e. initiated and people gathered upon it), this is a hizb.

The group (or party) of unbelievers who were fighting the Messenger did not have this organization that exists now, yet Allaah called them groups (or parties); and why is this the case? That is because they gathered to wage war against the truth. Allaah said:

كَذَّبَتْ قَبْلَهُمْ قَوْمُ نُوحٍ وَالْأَحْزَابُ مِن بَعْدِهِمْ ۖ وَهَمَّتْ كُلُّ أُمَّةٍ بِرَسُولِهِمْ لِيَأْخُذُوهُ ۖ وَجَادَلُوا بِالْبَاطِلِ لِيُدْحِضُوا بِهِ الْحَقَّ فَأَخَذْتُهُمْ ۖ فَكَيْفَ كَانَ عِقَابِ

The people of Nuh (Noah) and the confederates after them denied (their Messengers) before these, and every (disbelieving) nation plotted against their Messenger to seize him, and disputed by means of falsehood to refute therewith the truth. So I seized them (with punishment), and how (terrible) was My punishment! [Surah Ghaafir. Aayah 5]

Allaah [The Exalted] called them groups (or parties of illegal partisanship). They acted as a group – Quraish, Ghat’faan, Quraydha and various tribes gathered, and they were not organised in the manner similar to (what it is in this era, but) by just gathering Allaah called them Ahzaab (parties or groups of illegal partisanship), and a Surah was named Surah Al-Ahzaab. It is not a condition for a Hizb to be considered as such when organized, (rather) if it holds a false belief, argues for it, debates and establishes allegience due to it, this is a hizb (a group of illegal partisanship); but if in addition it is organised (as an organisation) and mobilise wealth, then surely it becomes more excessive in illegal partisanship and becomes one of the misguided groups (or parties), and Allaah’s Protection is sought (against this misguidance). [Kashf As-Sitaar pages 19-20. paraphrased]

Also listen here by Shaikh Abu Khadeejah [may Allaah protect him from every evil Aameen]:

https://sau.posthaven.com/hizbiyyah-is-not-from-salafiyyah-abu-khadeejah-abdul-waahid

Therefore, we ask the transmitters of Khaalid Uthmaan’s statement about the so called “Hizb of Abu Khadeejah”: What does your mentor intend by this statement? If what he intends is that we are group of Salafiyyoon living in the West, who co-operate upon Salafiyyah, then Alhamdulil laah; but if what is intended is similar to that which both Al-Allaamah Rabee and Shaikh Abu Khadeejah have clarified, then indeed he has slandered, lied and uttered blatant falsehood – a slander that deserves a very harsh rebuke.

Indeed, none can name a single idea, thought or view – an affair either related to Aqeedah or Manhaj – initiated by us that opposes the Qur’aan and the authentic Sunnah! The one who accuses us of hizbiyyah either does not understand what hizbiyyah is or he has passed a verdict based on lies, slander, vain, desires and conjecture. This behaviour is not befitting a Muslim, let alone a people who attribute themselves to the Sunnah. Allaah [The Exalted] said: [ إِن يَتَّبِعُونَ إِلَّا ٱلظَّنَّ وَمَا تَهۡوَى ٱلۡأَنفُسُ‌ۖ – They follow but a guess and that which they themselves desire] [Surah An-Najm. Aayah 23] Imaam Ibnul Qayyim [may Allaah have mercy upon him] said, “Guessing is Shubhah (i.e. something that resembles the truth but is falsehood in reality) and What they themselves desire is Shahwa (vain) desire, whereas what came us from our Lord opposes both of them”.(3)

To pass a judgement in the religion is an act of worship and has to be based on clear proof and piety- free from guessing, conjecture and vain desires. Al-Allaamah Rabee Bin Haadi Al-Mad’khali [may Allaah protect him] said, “Not acting on knowledge leads to hardness of the heart. And when this hardness afflicts the heart, it destroys it and thus neither does the heart accept truth nor act upon knowledge. It leads to concealment of knowledge, acting contrary to knowledge, leads [the person to] follow desires and rejects truth that is a clear as the sun”. (4)

The Shaikh also said: Worship Allaah based on that which the Messenger conveyed [i.e. the authentic Sunnah] and based on the texts of the Qur’aan. Neither worship Allaah based on ignorance nor desires, rather worship Allaah based on knowledge. That which is sought after from seeking knowledge is to act upon it, and acting cannot be [fulfilled] except after acquiring knowledge, just as Allaah [The Blessed and Exalted] said:

[فَاعْلَمْ أَنَّهُ لَا إِلَٰهَ إِلَّا اللَّهُ وَاسْتَغْفِرْ لِذَنبِكَ وَلِلْمُؤْمِنِينَ وَالْمُؤْمِنَاتِ ۗ – So know (O Muhammad) that none has the right to be worshipped but Allaah, and ask forgiveness for your sin, and also for (the sin of) believing men and believing women]. [Surah Muhammad. Aayah 19]

Imaam Al-Bukhaari wrote a chapter based on this Aayah, saying: Chapter: “Knowledge precedes speech and action”, because it is obligated on us to act based on knowledge and we are only to worship Allaah based on knowledge. We do not worship Allaah based on ignorance or desires. (5)

Finally, the Imaam of Jarh Wat-Tadeel in our era Al-Allaamah Rabee Bin Haadee, Al-Allaamah Ubaid Bin Abdillaah Al-Jaabiri and others are witnesses to this fact that Salafipublications and those who co-operate with them upon clarity, and sound Walaa Wal Baraa are upon a sound Salafi Manhaj- may Allaah protect us Aameen. Neither are they upon the methodology of the Qutubiyyah and Surooriyyah nor that of the Haddaadiyyah; neither upon the methodology of Al-Maghraawi nor that of Al-Maribi, Halabi, Al-Hajoori, Bilaal Philips, Abu Muslimah, Abu Usaamah, Shadeed Muhammad, Ali Tameemi, Zaraboozo and others; neither upon the innovations of Ikhwaan al-Muslimeen and Hasan al-Banna nor that of Jamaat At-Tableegh and Muhammad Ilyaas; neither reject the Jarh Mufassar of the scholars in order to defend figureheads and personalities of bidah nor speak with Al-Muwaazanah to accommodate the groups, sects and figureheads of Bidah; neither promote the false principle “We do not disparage but we only correct mistakes’’ nor the other false principle “Let’s not make our differing about someone else a reason for differing amongst ourselves.’’ Neither bring doubts in the narrations of the trustworthy narrators nor differentiate between Aqeedah and Manhaj in order to destroy the clear boundaries between the Salafi Methodology and the false methodologies; neither call to political parties nor the evil and false view that the Salaf differed in Aqeedah, neither revile the scholars of Ahlus Sunnah in this time and make the people flee from them, and pronounce false tabdee on the people, such as the likes of Dr Muhammad Bin Haadi, nor defend those who call the Sahaabah scum, such as Abul Hasan Al-Maribi; neither call the people to accept the misguided sects, parties and organizations into the domain of Ahlus Sunnah nor call to the unity of religions; neither defend the principles that are now been propagated by likes of Ibraaheem Ruhayli nor the extremism that has afflicted Muhammad Bin Haadi and the Musaafiqah. Indeed, the fools – potty mouth Usaamah Ibn Ataayaa and other diseased Musaafiqah witness all these affairs, but do not take heed. This is tantamount to foolishness. “The reality of foolishness is to place something in other than its rightful place”. (6) “A fool imagines the impossible as the possible and the ignorant cannot differentiate the impossible from the possible. The fool knows the right thing but does not act upon it, and the ignorant one does not know the right thing, but would have acted upon it if he knew”. (7) We ask Allaah to protect us from ignorance, vain desires and foolish behaviour Aameen.
