Sheikh Rabee’ About the Mashayikh of Madinah and Maktabah Salafiyyah – Feb 2012

Visit to Sheikh Rabee’ bin Haadi Al-Madhkhali Rabee’ 1/1433 – Feb 2012

On 24 Rabee’ 1 433, corresponding to Thursday 16th February 2012, Allaah blessed us to visit Sheikh Rabee’ bin Haadi al-Madhkhali. I prayed the Maghrib prayer with the Sheikh along with other brothers mainly from North Africa. Some of the students, I recognized, were studying at the Islamic University of Madinah or the Prophet’s mosque (sallallaahi ‘alaihi wa sallam). The sheikh said come to the house so we all entered his house. We sat down and waited for him to come from the other door. When he came, he gave sallam and asked how was Sheikh ‘Ubayd al-Jaabiri?

Shaikh Fawzaan: The Methodology of Ahlus Sunnah In Their Combat Against The Khawaarij

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

 

 Imaam Barbahaaree (rahimahullaah) stated in Sharh- As Sunnah:

”It is permissible to fight the Khawaarij if they attack the wealth of the Muslims, or the Muslims and their families, but if they are dispersed, then the Muslim Ruler is not to seek after them, nor are their wounded to be killed, nor is booty taken from them, nor may those taken captive be killed, nor are those who flee to be pursued.”

Sheikh Saaleh Al-Fawzaan commented on the above statement of Imaam Barbahaaree (rahimahullaah) saying:

We know that the khawaarij are those who hold that they can renounce obedience (to the ruler). They hold that the ruler is not given the oath of allegiance or that it is not binding upon the people to maintain their oath of allegiance to him when he becomes sinful, and they (also) declare the Muslims to be disbelievers for committing major sins.  So if they adopt this school of thought and there arises neither uproar nor killing, then they are left alone, advised and given clarification in hope that they may repent.  If they cause uproar and manifest their strength, it then becomes obligatory upon the Muslims to fight them to avert their evil.

They are not fought on the basis that they are disbelievers; rather they are fought on the basis that they are Muslims who commit outrage and transgression against other Muslims. That is why when Ameerul Mumineen Ali (radiyallaahu-anhu) was asked about the khawaarij, ”Are they disbelievers?” He said: ”No, they flee from disbelief, but they are a people who have rebelled against us.”    Therefore, they (khawaarij) are not fought on the basis that they are disbelievers and that is why their women and children are not taken as captives, nor is their wealth taken, nor are their wounded killed; because they are only fought to avert their evil and not because of disbelief.

And regarding the saying of Imaam Barbahaaree (rahimahullaah):

‘It is permissible to fight the Khawaarij if they attack the wealth of the Muslims, or the Muslims and their families;’ because the Prophet (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam) commanded that they are to be fought, and because Ali (radiyallaahu-anhu) fought them when they attacked and killed Abdullaah Ibn Khabbaab al Arrat and ripped open the stomach of his pregnant wife.  So Ameerul Mumineen Ali (radiyallaahu-anhu) decided to fight them as they brought about a good reason to be fought against.

And regarding the saying of Imaam Barbahaaree (rahimahullaah): ‘But if they are dispersed, then the Muslim leader is not to seek after them.”  If they refrain from fighting, the ruler is neither to chase them nor carry out a military expedition against them, as long as they do not commit acts of transgression. And no doubt they are misguided and are to be advised in hope that they may return (repentant) and are not fought.

And regarding the saying of Imaam Barbahaaree (rahimahullaah): ‘Nor are their wounded to be killed’; because the evil of the injured person is curtailed.   And regarding the saying of Imaam Barbahaaree (rahimahullaah): ‘Nor is booty to be taken from them’, meaning: their wealth is not to be taken as war booty; because it is the wealth of the Muslims.

And regarding the saying of Imaam Barbahaaree (rahimahullaah): ‘Nor may those taken captive be killed’ because they are Muslims, and by being injured and taken as captive their evil is curtailed.   And regarding the saying of Imaam Barbahaaree (rahimahullaah): ‘Nor are those who flee to be pursued’. If they flee, the leader is to leave them alone and not go after them as their evil is curtailed.

Thorns that do but Perforate – the 8th perforation

It is with great regret that an issue of this nature must be clarified years after it was buried, however the desires of the people are not buried with ease….

Our noble Shaikh Rabee’ bin Haady was asked the following concerning the fitnah of al-Ma’riby:

Some of the youth have refrained from taking a position in (the issue) of Abul Hasan and some of them follow those students who defend him.

Thorns that do but Perforate – the 7th perforation

Our noble Shaikh Rabee’ bin Haady al-Madkhaly was asked the following:

هل يُشترط في جرح أهل البدع إجماع أهل العصر، أم يكفي عالمٌ واحد فقط؟!!!!! .

هذه من القواعد المميعة الخبيثة – بارك الله فيكم- في أي عصر اشترطوا هذا الإجماع؟ وما الدليل علىهذا الشرط؟ كل شرطٍ ليس في كتاب الله فهو باطل، وإن كان مائة شرط

Is consensus of the scholars of (of any given) time a condition in the refutation/disparagement of the people of innovation, or is one scholar sufficient?

Thorns that do but Perforate – the 6th perforation

Thaabit ibn Dahhaak narrated,: “A man made a vow to sacrifice a camel at a place known as Buwaana so he asked the prophet صلى الله عليه و سلم about it, so he صلى الله عليه و سلم said,”Did the place have any idol that is worshipped from the idols of jaahiliyyah?” They said, “no”. He صلى الله عليه و سلم said, “Was there in it celebrated an ‘eid from amongst their eids (recurring festivity)?”, they said, “no”. So the prophet صلى الله عليه و سلم said, “Fulfill your vow, verily there is no fulfillment of a vow in the disobedience of Allah…..” [al-hadeeth] (Abu Daud)
