Ruling on the Qur’aniyyoon – Those who reject the Sunnah – Shaykh Saaleh Fawzaan

Honourable Shaykh – May Allāh give you success – this questioner says, What is the ruling on those called Qurāniyūn, those who reject the noble hadīth, and they say we suffice ourselves with the Qurān only?

This is disbelief, this is disbelief in Allāh The Mighty & Majestic because the Hadīth is revelation from Allāh The Mighty & Majestic, it is the second revelation after the Qurān. Nor does he speak of (his own) desire. It is only an Inspiration that is inspired. The speech of the prophet is revelation from Allāh the Mighty & Majestic, the pronouncement is the Messenger’s, however the meaning is from Allāh.

Allah the Mighty and Majestic said [in the Qur’an]: “And whatsoever the Messenger gives you, take it, and whatsoever he forbids you, abstain (from it)” 59:7

And this one says, I only take from the Qur’an. “And whatsoever the Messenger gives you, take it” He says, No, I won’t take. What sort of speech is this?!

What is the Meaning of Hizbiyyah and What is The Ruling Upon It? Shaykh Ubaid Al Jaabiree

A questioner from Germany asks:

“What is the definition of Hizbiyyah and what is its ruling?”

Watch the video for the answer.

Your question O my child from Germany is composed of two parts. The first: concerning the meaning of hizbiyyah and I say you have done well for asking this question. So hizbiyyah is to unite and side with an individual, individuals or a group other than Ahlus-Sunnah wal-Jamā’ah. And it’s possible (the people of hizbiyyah) side themselves with a number of groups. So you find one of them for example, uniting with Jamā’atu-Tablīgh, Jamā’atul-ikhwān, Jamā’atul-jihād or other than them from the present day da’wah affiliated groups that are all deviated and misguide people.

I say this without any reluctance, as this is what I profess as my religion before Allāh.

So you find him (a person of hizbiyyah) making his friendship and allegiance towards those who side with him, a groups of people, a single individual or various individual persons.  He builds his allegiance and enmity based on them.

It was this that Shaykhul-Islām – may Allāh have mercy upon him – signified with his saying, “And whosoever raises for the people a man for whose sake friendship and enmity is formed, then he is  from those who have divided their religion and split into sects” and with this detailed explanation – if Allāh wills – I think you have understood the meaning of hizbiyyah. It is taken from (the word) tahazzub (to form partisanship).

As for the second part and that is your question concerning its ruling – it is an innovation and misguidance. So whoever sides himself with other than the Salafis – and they are the People of Hadīth (prophetic narrations), Ahlul- Athar, (people of narrations), the Victorious Party, the Saved Sect, the People of Sunnah and Jamā’ah (unity).

So this is the reality of despicable hizbiyyah and (one who falls into it) is from those who have divided their religion and split into sects.

Do Not Pray with Those Who Revile Ahlus Sunnah – Shaykh Saaleh al Fawzaan

Q: Oh Noble Scholar – May Allah give you success – this questioner also says, my job is far from my house – a distance of 140 km, And there is a masjid where I pray the Friday prayer, but the khateeb reviles Ahlus Sunnah wal Jamaa’ah, is it allowed for me to leave the Friday prayer in this masjid, knowing that there are other masaajid, but they are far from my workplace?

A: Do not pray with him whilst he reviles Ahlus Sunnah wal Jamaa’ah. This is a great evil, do not pray with him. Pray it as dhuhr*, pray it as dhuhr, do not pray it as jumu’ah, except if there was near you another masjid, that you can pray in, and there isn’t any reason prohibiting that, then pray in there, N’am.

* The questioner was a traveller which is why the Shaykh said pray it as dhuhr

Do Not Aid the Oppressors – An Admonition by Shaykh Rabee Ibn Haadi, Accompanied by a Benefit from Imaam Ash-Shanqeetee

In The Name of Allah The Beneficent The Most Merciful

وَلَا تَرْكَنُوا إِلَى الَّذِينَ ظَلَمُوا فَتَمَسَّكُمُ النَّارُ وَمَا لَكُم مِّن دُونِ اللَّهِ مِنْ أَوْلِيَاءَ ثُمَّ لَا تُنصَرُونَ

And incline not toward those who do wrong, lest the Fire should touch you, and you have no protectors other than Allah, nor you would then be helped. (Hud: 113)

In explanation of this verse, Shaykh Rabee [hafidhahullaah] commented:

[Do not] incline towards the oppressors- those who oppress the people, [such as shedding] their blood, [stealing or taking] their wealth and [violating] their honour; or they oppress the people in their religion by way of innovations and various forms of misguidance and the dissemination of dangerous propaganda and calls that oppose Islam. Do not incline towards anyone from these type of people; do not aid him and do not help him with his falsehood. The verse encompasses all of these types [of oppressors]. Every follower of falsehood is an oppressor; every innovator is an oppressor; everyone who violates a Muslim’s honour is an oppressor. So, do not incline towards any of them and thus you are afflicted by the fire, because when you incline towards the sinner, the innovator, the oppressor,  the criminal,  the one who violates peoples’ honour and those who violate the sanctity of the divine legislation, it is as if you are pleased [with him] – as if you are aiding and supporting him. Therefore, the believer should be careful of falling into this destructive inclination. Allaah [The Exalted] said:

وَلَوْلَا أَن ثَبَّتْنَاكَ لَقَدْ كِدتَّ تَرْكَنُ إِلَيْهِمْ شَيْئًا قَلِيلًا

And had We not made you stand firm, you would nearly have inclined to them a little. (Al-Israa: 74)

Allaah [The Blessed and Exalted] said to his Messenger [sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam]: [شَيْئًا قَلِيلً -you would nearly have inclined to them a little]. [Ref 1]

Imaam Ash-Shanqeetee [rahimahullaah] stated about this Aayah: This noble ayah [i.e. Al-Israa Ayah 74] makes explicitly clear the Messenger’s innocence from inclining towards the disbelievers a little let alone inclining towards them. That is because [لَوْلاَ (i.e. And had it not )] necessitates negation of the occurrence of something, so the phrase ‘you would have nearly inclined’ is negated by [لَوْلاَ ] due to Allaah’s bestowal of firmness to the noblest person amongst His creation [i.e. Muhammad (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam)].  So it is established with certainty that he never inclined towards them the least let alone inclining towards them. [Ref 2]

Therefore, the believer should be careful of this type of inclination, for indeed it is from the causes of deviation and misguidance, and Allaah refuge is sought. [Allaah said]:

فَلَمَّا زَاغُوا أَزَاغَ اللَّهُ قُلُوبَهُمْ وَاللَّهُ لَا يَهْدِي الْقَوْمَ الْفَاسِقِينَ  

So when they turned away (from the Path of Allah), Allah turned their hearts away (from the Right Path). And Allah guides not the people who are Fasiqun (rebellious, disobedient to Allah). [As-Saff: 5] [Ref 3]

Returning to the Truth is Righteousness and Continuing upon an Error is Despicable – Shaykh Rabī

Shaykh Rabī (hafidahullāh) said,

“Many people when they commit an error, or go beyond bounds (ghulū) or commit something (which is dis-praiseworthy), then (in most cases) they do not return (to the truth), and refuge is sought with Allāh.”

What Are the Signs of a Responsive Heart and Unresponsive Heart? Shaykh Uthaymīn

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

Shaykh Uthaymīn was asked:

What are the signs of a responsive heart? And the signs of an unresponsive heart?

Shaykh Uthaymīn:
A sign of a responsive heart, is that it humbles itself to the remembrance of Allāh.

And the sign of an unresponsive heart is that it is not affected by what it hears, from the verses of Allah.
