Ustaadh Abu Talhah’s [rahimahullaah] Manhaj – [A Thorn In The Throats of Frustrated Hizbiyyoon, Mu’mayyi’ah And Infiltrators]

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

Ustaadh Abu Khadeejah (may Allaah preserve him and protect him from the enmity of the people of bidah, hizbiyyah and Tamyee) wrote:  ”In the nineties, when the da’wah was in its infancy, many people left the Salafi Manhaj, preferring the paths of innovation – Dawud (rahimahullaah) saw them come and saw them go, but he would not join them in their opposition. Rather he would advise those who were once with us upon this path of Sunnah, he would show great concern for them so they not be misguided. He would make du’aa for them, and then leave their affair to Allaah, and stop his association with them only for the sake of Allaah. He would not compromise with them, nor praise those who opposed this blessed Manhaj. He was the first person to translate the rudood (refutations) of Shaikh Muqbil, Shaikh al-Albaanee and Shaikh Rabee’ against Jam’iyyah Ihyaa Turaath al-Islaamee – he stemmed and almost cut off their bid’ah in the UK by way of these translations (by the permission of Allaah). Allaah had blessed him with skills of translation that I have not seen equaled in the West, and Allaah knows best.’’ [End of Quote]

Indeed this above statement of Ustaadh Abu Khadeejah is truth.  Ustaadh Abu Talhah translated the works of the ulamaa in refutation against the Mubtadi’a within the ranks of ihya Turaath, such as the likes of Abdur Rahmaan Abdul Khaaliq. He was also well-known for translating the works of the scholars on various topics needed to clarify the correct positions on Ibaadah, Aqeedah, Manhaj, groups, parties, sects, contemporary deviant organizations, individuals and personalities. The following are some of his works mentioned by Ustaadh Abu Khadeejah (may Allaah preserve him):

This was part of Ustaadh Abu Talhah’s methodology, which he learnt from the Ulama of Salafiyyah, and this is the same methodology he died upon (rahimahullaah). The Imaam of Jarh Wat-Tadeel in our era Al-Allaamah Rabee Bin Haadee and others are witnesses to this fact.

*Ustaadh Abu Talhah (rahimahullaah) was neither upon the methodology of the Qutubiyyah and Surooriyyah nor that of the Haddaadiyyah.

*Ustaadh Abu Talhah (rahimahullaah) was neither upon the methodology of Al-Maghraawi nor that of Al-Maribi, Halabi and Al-Hajoori.

*Ustaadh Abu Talhah (rahimahullaah) was not upon the erroneous views of Bilaal Philips, Abu Muslimah, Abu Usaamah, Shadeed Muhammad, Ali Tameemi, Zaraboozo and others.

*Ustaadh Abu Talhah (rahimahullaah) was neither upon the innovations of Ikhwaan al-Muslimeen and Hasan al-Banna nor that of Jamaat At-Tableegh and Muhammad Ilyaas.

*Ustaadh Abu Talhah (rahimahullaah) neither rejected the Jarh Mufassar of the scholars in order to defend figureheads and personalities of bidah nor spoke with Al-Muwaazanah to accommodate the groups, sects and figureheads of Bidah.

*Ustaadh Abu Talhah (rahimahullaah) neither promoted 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.’’

*Ustaadh Abu Talhah (rahimahullaah) neither brought doubts in the narrations of the trustworthy narrators nor did he differentiate between Aqeedah and Manhaj in order to destroy the clear boundaries between the Salafi Methodology and the false methodologies.

*Ustaadh Abu Talhah (rahimahullaah) neither called to political parties nor the evil and false view that the Salaf differed in Aqeedah—an ignorant view of Aasim Al-Hakeem the Pseudo Shaikh.

*Ustaadh Abu Talhah neither reviled the scholars of Ahlus Sunnah in this time and make the people flee from them nor did he defend those who call the Sahaabah Ghuthaa-iyyah.

*Ustaadh Abu Talhah (rahimahullaah) neither called the people to accept the misguided sects, parties and organizations into the domain of Ahlus Sunnah nor did he call to the unity of religions.

*Ustaadh Abu Talhah (rahimahullaah) never defended the principles that are now been propagated by likes of Ibraaheem Ruhayli.

*Ustaadh Abu Talhah applied Imtihaan by way of the Ulama of the Sunnah in this era, such as the likes of Shaikh Bin Baaz, Shaikh Uthaymeen, Shaikh Albaani, Shaikh Fawzaan, Shaikh Rabee, Shaikh Ubaid, Shaikh Muqbil and others.  So, whoever spoke well of them, loved them and followed what they stated with Daleel, Abu Talhah was pleased with him.  And whoever spoke ill of them, then Abu Talhah was distant from them. May Allaah have mercy upon all of us, the scholars and students of knowledge Aameen.

The Sin of the Person Who Does Not Provide for Those Under His Care. Hadeeth: Explanation of Shaykh ‘Abdul Muhsin Al Abbad

Abū Dawūd reported the hadīth of Abdullāh ibn ‘Amr (Allāh be pleased with him). He said, “Allāh’s Messenger (sallallāhu alaihi wa salam) said”

“Sufficient sin for a man is that he neglects those he should provide for.”(1)

Shaykh ‘Abdul Muhsin (hafidahullāh):

“Meaning, a person sins due to the absence of spending and providing on the one spending upon is obligated.

Regardless of whether that was due to him not seeking sustenance for them (by working), or if he was wealthy but was stingy and tightfisted with them.

Or perhaps he spends and gives optional charity to those who aren’t close to him, neglecting those who it is obligatory for him to spend on, from those close to him, (wife, children etc), so by doing this he fulfils a recommended act but abandons an obligation.

Indeed he is sinful because he abandons that which Allāh (‘azza wa jal) obligated upon him, from spending upon those it is obligated to provide for.

This is similar to the previous hadīth(2), Spend it on yourself, then your child, then your wife, then your servant, then he (sallallāhu alaihi wa salam) said: You have better knowledge; meaning: after that, give charity to whomsoever you wish, or don’t, its entirely up to you.”

Slightly Paraphrased from Shaykh ‘Abdul Muhsin’s (hafidahullāh) explanation of this hadīth in his lessons on Sunan Abū Dawūd in the Prophets Masjid.

(1) Authenticated by Shaykh Al-Albāni Sahīh Sunan Abū Dawūd Hadīth Nos. 1692 Vol.1 Pg. 469
(2) Full wording of the Hadīth:

On the Authority of Abū Hurayrah, he said Allāh’s Messenger commanded with giving in charity. Then a man said, “Oh Allāh’s Messenger! I have a dīnār?”

So Allāh’s Messenger said “Spend it in on yourself”.

He (the man) said, “I have another?”

(Allāh’s Messenger) said “Spend it on your offspring.”

He (the man) said, “I have another?”

(Allāh’s Messenger) said “Spend it on your wife.”

He (the man) said, “I have another?”

(Allāh’s Messenger) said “Spend it on your servant.”

He (the man) said, “I have another?”

(Allāh’s Messenger) said “You have better knowledge.” (On how to spend it, or give in charity to.)

Signs of a Sound Heart and a Sick Heart – Shaykh Rabī


‎إِلَّا مَنْ أَتَى اللَّهَ بِقَلْبٍ سَلِيمٍ
Except him who brings to Allāh a clean heart [clean from Shirk (polytheism) and Nifāq (hypocrisy)]. Ash-Shu’ara:89

Shaykh Rabī ibn Hādi Al-Madkhalī (hafidahullāh):

Ponder, is your heart sound?

What is the sound heart?

The sound heart is that which fights Shirk and rejects falsehood, it accepts the truth and refutes falsehood with all its might, this is the sound heart. So, if you notice that you accept the truth from whoever brings it to you (you accept the truth; the truth guides you and your goal is the truth) then by Allāh your heart and intellect is sound.

What is the sick heart?

And, if you realise that you reject the truth when it comes to you from a certain direction, and you accept falsehood when it comes from another direction and you behave as if it is the truth; then know that your heart is sick.

Majmu’ Ar- Rā’iq Pgs. 485-486

Can You Take Benefit from Those who Oppose the Salafi Methodology – Shaykh Rabī

Shaykh Rabī ibn Hādi ʿUmayr al-Madkhalī [ḥafidahullāh] was asked: Is it permissible for us to listen to the audio [lectures of the] Hizbees?

He [ḥafidahullāh] answered: No, do not listen to the audio [lectures] of the hizbees, because their harm is much greater than their benefit. Seek benefit from the Book of Allāh, the Sunnah of Allāh’s Messenger [alayhis ṣalātu was salām], the books and audio [lectures] of the scholars of the Sunnah.

[That is] because the people of desires insert and conceal their poison in such a way that it is not noticed, except by the intelligent ones [i.e. the scholars and experienced students]. As for the Masākīn [i.e. those whose knowledge is very limited] amongst the smaller students of knowledge and the general folk, then verily this hidden poison has an effect on their intellects and against them, in ways they do not perceive.

Therefore, let there be great caution against listening to the people of bidah and the people [who are ascribed] to those groups that have deviated from Allah’s True Methodology; and they [ḥizbīs, the people of bidah etc] warn against the books that[propagate the sound creed, methodology etc] and the books that [propagate the authentic] Sunnah, so how can we call to their books and the lectures [in their audio tapes]?!

Allāh Exposes the Pretenders to the Sunnah – Shaykh Ubayd al-Jābirī

Shaykh Ubayd al-Jābirī (hafidahullah):

As for a person who is upon misguidance and he presents himself as if he is upon the Sunnah (to cover up his misguidance), then indeed Allāh will expose him, unmask him and remove his covering.

For how many misguided individuals have there been, presenting a good beautiful attractive face, using the Book and Sunnah as evidence for that, then afterwards Allāh exposes him because he is a habitual liar and is not upon the Sunnah outwardly or inwardly.
