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?!

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]

A Warning Against the Statement: The Shaikh Is Influenced by The Youth Surrounding Him–[By Shaikh Muhammad Baazmool (may Allaah preserve him)]

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

Excerpt:

O my brothers! Be warned against this statement, for indeed it is a statement of the people of Bidah and Ignorance. I use to hear it being uttered regarding Shaikh Bin Baaz [rahimahullaah], Shaikh Al-Albaani [rahimahullaah] and other Mashaayikh. It is a false statement when examined from several perspectives.

Firstly: Indeed, this statement is an insult against the Shaikh, that he is not one who determines affairs precisely and that he accepts information merely based on what his students transmit. However, what is known about the Shaikh- the basis of his affair-is that he is trustworthy and one who determines affairs precisely. Therefore, this [i.e. insult] is contrary to the basis of what is known about the Shaikh, so either proof is produced to substantiate it or otherwise it is rejected.

Secondly: Allaah made it unlawful to utter this type of statement about the Prophet [sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam] and the scholars are the inheritors of the Prophets. [Allaah (The Most High) said]:

وَمِنۡہُمُ ٱلَّذِينَ يُؤۡذُونَ ٱلنَّبِىَّ وَيَقُولُونَ هُوَ أُذُنٌ۬‌ۚ قُلۡ أُذُنُ خَيۡرٍ۬ لَّڪُمۡ يُؤۡمِنُ بِٱللَّهِ وَيُؤۡمِنُ لِلۡمُؤۡمِنِينَ وَرَحۡمَةٌ۬ لِّلَّذِينَ ءَامَنُواْ مِنكُمۡ‌ۚ وَٱلَّذِينَ يُؤۡذُونَ رَسُولَ ٱللَّهِ لَهُمۡ عَذَابٌ أَلِيمٌ۬

And among them are men who hurt the Prophet [Muhammad] and say: “He is (lending his) ear [to every news].” Say: “He listens to what is best for you; he believes in Allah; has faith in the believers; and is a mercy to those of you who believe.” But those who hurt Allah’s Messenger [Muhammad] will have a painful torment. [Surah At-Tawbah’ Aayah 61]

Imaam At-Tabari [rahimahullaah] stated about this Aayah: Allaah [The Most High] stated that amongst those hypocrites there is a group that seeks to hurt the Messenger of Allaah [sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam] and declare him deficient [in judgement or character], saying that he is one who listens to every news- listens to everyone [or too willing to listen], accepts and believes what that person says. This statement was made by the people of hypocrisy as an insult against the Messenger [sallal laahu alayhi wasallam]; but at present it is uttered by the people of Bidah and the ignoramuses as an insult against the scholars- a  means of repudiating their statements [i.e. verdicts of the scholars] and to hinder people from their knowledge. Therefore, they [i.e. those who utter this insult against the scholars] resemble – in relation to this deed of theirs- the people of Nifaaq.

Thirdly: Indeed, those who make this statement utilise it as a veil to reject the statements [i.e. verdicts] of the people of knowledge against certain individuals or affairs, and this is the evilest and falsest state this affair can be, because the statement of a scholar is not rejected except based on a Sharee’ah proof. So, is this statement of theirs [i.e. that such and such scholar is influenced by the youth around him] among those Sharee’ah proofs?

Fourthly: Indeed, this statement contains many perils and among them is that it firmly establishes a lack of trust of the Shaikh’s statements and rulings. And if the Shaikh’s reliability is lost, then the reliability of his Uloom [i.e. his explanations of the Sharee’ah texts in different subject matters, clarifications, verdicts etc] will be lost.

Fifthly: This statement will lower [or drop] the dignity and esteem of the Shaikh in the hearts of the students.
