[15D] Excerpts From Shaikh Rabee Book Titled ‘Marhaban Yaa Taalibal Ilm’-[The People of Fitan Are Unable to Confront The Salafi Methodology, So They Utilise Different Apparels and Semblances to Deceive The People]

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

Shaikh Rabee [may Allaah preserve him] said:

Indeed, I advise the youth to have good manners, to be humble, honour the scholars and avoid this evil orientation [i.e. the claim of the one who says, ‘’I do not make Taqleed of such and such’’, even though the claim behind this is to reject the truth..read here https://salaficentre.com/2017/12/15c-excerpts-shaikh-rabees-book-titled-marhaban-yaa-taalibal-ilm-i-not-make-taqleed-person/], just as the khawaarij used to say: The judgement belongs to none except Allaah”, so Ali [radiyallaahu-anhu]  said to them: “A  statement of truth by way of which falsehood is desired.”

I swear by Allaah -based on my observations  of their actions, statements and stances-that these people desire falsehood and to divert the youth from the scholars. The youth exit a maelstrom and fall into another maelstrom; they exit one pit and fall into another, because the people of evil and Fitan are hidden and are behind the scenes, as the saying goes, ” they want pawns” whom they move back and forth to confront the Salafi Methodology.

Where did Ikhwaan al Muslimoon and the Qutubiyyoon [ref1] get these ideas from in this land [i.e. Saudi Arabia]? Where did the ideas of Juhaymaan, Abdur Rahmaan Abdul Khaaliq, Al- Haddaad, Al-Maghraawi and Abul Hasan Al-Maribi come from? [Ref 2] All of them are tail ends of Ikhwaan Al-Muslimeen’s ideas. All of them- beginning with the Fitna of Juhaymaan up to date- are tail ends of Ikhwaan Al-Muslimeen’s Fitna, whose main setup is to topple the scholars. However, they adopt different apparels and semblances – sometimes they adopt the term Al-Ikhwaan, sometimes the term At-Tasawwuf and at other times they adopt the term As-Salafiyyah! The most dangerous one is the term As-Salafiyyah, because they are unable to confront the Salafi Methodology with the terms At-Tab’leegh and Al- Ikhwaan, so they cover this make-believe act with the term As-Salafiyyah and then come along to challenge the scholars [i.e. the true scholars of the Salafi Methodology].

None Violates The Honour of The Scholars, Except One of These Three Types of People

Shaikh Saaleh Al-Fawzaan [may Allaah preserve him] said, ”None violates the honour of the scholars who are upon the truth, except one of three (people): Either a hypocrite known for (his) hypocrisy, or an evil sinner who hates the scholars because they prevent him from his sinful (acts) of disobedience, or a misguided hizbi who hates the scholars because they neither agree with his hizbiyyah nor with his deviated views”.

Our Salaf- Their Stance Against The Books of Ahlul Bidah

قال الإمام أحمد

إياكم أن تكتبوا عن أحد من أصحاب الأهواء ؛ قليلا ولا كثيرا

Imaam Ahmad [rahimahullaah] said: Beware of writing down [knowledge] from one of the people of desires-be it a little or a lot. [Siyar 11/231]

قال سعيد بن عمرو البرذعي – رحمه الله

شهدت أبا زرعة سئل عن الحارث المحاسبي وكتبه ؛

: فقال للسائل

إياك وهذه الكتب هذه كتب بدع وضلالات

[الميزان  (2/165) ]

Sa’eed Ibn Amr Al-Bardha’ee [rahimahullaah] 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]


O MCR Hizbies! Why Do You Attach the Youth to The Figureheads of Bidah- [Sayyid Qutb, Hasan Al-Bannah, Al-Maribi, Al-Maghraawi etc]- and Their Books?

Shaikh Saaleh Al-Fawzaan [may Allaah preserve him] said:

And all praises and thanks be to Allaah, there are scholars of the Sunnah and upright [scholars].  Allaah [Glorified be He and free is He from all imperfections] has not [left you in a state to have] a need of the evil scholars and the books of misguidance, whilst we have authentic books.  Therefore, we hold onto the [upright scholars and authentic books] -neither go to the scholars of misguidance nor the innovators, nor to the books that are mixed [with falsehood].  All praises and thanks be to Allaah, we have good books and scholars, so we hold onto the scholars and the authentic books.

An Advice and a Reminder for All Those Who Speak In The Name of Salafiyyah – [A Timely Reminder]

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

The article you are about to read was posted at salafitalk.net on 02/07/2011 by Abu Maryam Tariq [may Allaah preserve him]. NB: We have only quoted some sections of the original article. To proceed:

Shaykh Rabee’ bin Haadee al Madkhali (may Allaah preserve him) said:

All praise is for Allaah and may the peace and blessings be upon the Messenger of Allaah, his family and his companions and whomsoever follows his guidance. Then to proceed:

Then this is an advice and a reminder for all those who speak in the name of as-Salafiyyah, but when the Imtihaan (test) comes and when spears and arrows are directed at its liver by Ahlul-Makr (the people of vile deception), the Ahlul-Fitan (the people of trials and tribulations) and the troublemakers, we do not find them being from its army nor from those who fight for it but rather we find from them oddity and strangeness.

Indeed there has appeared from those who claim as-Salafiyyah – who wait in ambush of it and its people –  stances and actions which are in opposition to as-Salafiyyah, its Manhaj and its foundational principles which cause the hair upon the head to turn white (with grief).

From those positions and stances:

[1] – Waging a wicked and oppressive war upon Ahlus-Sunnah, smearing them and marring their Manhaj and principles.

[2]- Inventing principles which conflict/contradict with the principles of Ahlus-Sunnah and their methodology in order to wage war with Ahlus-Sunnah and in defence of the people of those major innovations. For example [from those innovated principles]:

(a) We correct but we do not disparage”.

(b) Also: “The vast all-embracing Manhaj which accommodates Ahlus-Sunnah – according to their own technical term – and also accommodates the whole of the Ummah” but rather it encroaches and restricts the Ahlus-Sunnah and their Manhaj and their principles.

(c) The Manhaj of al-Mawaazanaat.

(d) The taking of Mujmalaat (the general spurious statements) of the people of misguidance upon their Mufassilaat (clear specific/detailed statements), whilst it is clear that these Mufassilaat (detailed statements) were held by them before these Mujmalaat (spurious/general statements).

And other such principles which Ahlus-Sunnah have condemned and clarified their falsehood and deviation.

[3]- And in order to evade (at-tamallus) the truth and to be firm upon their falsehood they have contrived:

(a)The [false] principle – (It’s not obligatory upon me).

(b) Also the [false] principle – It does not satisfy, convince, and persuade me.

(c) And waging war against the foundational principle of al-Jarh al-Mufassar (the detailed disparagement/criticism).

(d) And the rejection of the report of trustworthy narrators (at-thiqaat).

(e) And putting the condition of having a consensus [of the scholars] in tabdee (pronouncing a person to be an innovator) of any innovator. Even if/no matter if  the proof and evidences have been established which necessitates/obligates their tabdee, and no matter what the status/level of the one who rules with that tabdee and even if they are many in number; if one person from the people of desires opposes them, then this tabdee is dropped (becomes null and void).

(f) They have fabricated a principle to (revile and insult) the companions of Muhammad (sallallaahu alaihi wasallaam) with the vilest of revilements and insults by describing them as al-Guthaa-iyyah (scum). When requested to excuse themselves from that they said: (It is not revilement, it’s not revilement.) And they said:  (if this wording emanated from a Sunni then it is not revilement and if it came from a Raafidee then it becomes revilement and insult.) And they have been staunch upon this since 1424H up until this day.

And these principles have become the fountains of Fitan like pieces (sudden amassing of clouds) of the dark night.

Accompanying all these calamities is arrogance, obstinate opposition and haughtiness towards those who advise them and clarifies their deviation and their mixed up confusion. Whilst with all these calamities, afflictions and other than that we still find those who commend them and declare that they indeed are from Ahlus-Sunnah.  And the following are Prophetic Narrations I gathered together to remind those people so perhaps they will remember and withdraw/ be rebuked from that which they are upon.

On the authority of Qais bin Abee Haazim, who said: Aboo Bakr – may Allaah be pleased with him- stood up and praised Allaah the Mighty and Majestic and extolled Him and then said: O people, indeed you recite this Aayah (Qur’anic verse):

يَـٰٓأَيُّہَا ٱلَّذِينَ ءَامَنُواْ عَلَيۡكُمۡ أَنفُسَكُمۡ‌ۖ لَا يَضُرُّكُم مَّن ضَلَّ إِذَا ٱهۡتَدَيۡتُمۡ‌ۚ

O You who believe! take care of your ownselves, he who goes astray cannot harm you when you are rightly-guided [5:105]

And you put it in its improper place. For indeed I heard the Messenger of Allaah (sallallaahu alaihi wasallaam) say: “When the people see an evil (al-Munkar) and do not change it, all of them are about to be punished by Allaah altogether.”

This Hadeeth is Saheeh (Sound Authentic). It is reported by Imaam Ahmad in his Musnad (1/5), Aboo Dawood in his Sunan Hadeeth (4338, Ibn Maajah in his Sunan, [Chapter] Regarding the Fitan, Hadeeth (4005) and is also reported by other Imaams.

Also on the authority of Hudhaifah bin al-Yamaan may Allaah be pleased with him- on the authority of the Prophet (SallAllaah alaihi wasallam), who said: “By Him in Whose hand is my soul, certainly you will order with the good and forbid the evil, or else a punishment of Allaah is about to be sent upon you from Him and then if you were to supplicate to Him He will not respond to you.”

This Hadeeth is reported by at-Tirmidhee in al-Fitan, Hadeeth (2169) and he said: This Hadeeth is Hasan (Good). But there is weakness in its chain of narration. And it is also reported by Imaam Ahmad in his Musnad (5/388).

And at-Tirmidhee declared the hadeeth Hasan due to it having two witnessing (supporting) narrations with a similar meaning which have a weakness in their Isnaad (chain of narration). One of them [witnessing narrations] is the Hadeeth of Aishah – radiallaahu anha – reported by Imaam Ahmad in his Musnad (6/159), the second of the two is the hadeeth of Aboo Hurairah – radiallaahu anhu – reported by al-Bazzaar in his Musnad (8508) and al-Khateeb in his at-Taareekh (13/92). And based upon the various routes (chains) the grading of this hadeeth is raised to the level of Hasan li-gayrihi. Al-Allaamah al-Albaanee has declared it to be Hasan in Saheeh al-Jaami (6947).

And on the authority of Ibn Mas’ood -radiallaahu anhu- that the Messenger of Allaah -sallallaahu alaihi wasallaam – said:

There is not a Prophet that Allaah sent to a nation before me except that he had Hawariyyoon (helpers) and companions who would betake with his Sunnah and follow his command. Then after them came people who would say (speak with) that which they do not do, and they do that which they are not ordered with; so whoever fights them with his hand then he is a believer, and whoever fights them with his tongue then he is a believer and he who fights them with his heart then he is a believer, and there is not even a mustard seeds amount of faith (Eemaan) left after that.

Reported by Muslim in [the Book of] al-Eemaan Hadeeth (50), Aboo Awaanah (1/35, 36) and Ibn Mandah in al-Eemaan (page 183, 184).

In these Ahadeeth is the clarification from the Messenger of Allaah -sallallaahu alaihi wasallam – to the danger of al-Munkaraat (the evils) of innovations and sins. And its danger and evil punishment is not just confined to those who perpetrate it, but rather it includes whoever Yudaahin (flatters and compromises) with its people and is amicable with them, and also it encompasses and includes more so whoever defends them (innovations) and its people. The affair becomes even more severe if he wages war against whoever forbids it (innovations) from the people of the truth, those well established within the boundaries set by Allaah, those who war with the people of Misguidance and Fitan (turmoil and trials).

On the authority of Nu’man bin Basheer -radiallaahu anhumaa- the Prophet -sallallaahu alaihi wasallam – said:

The example of al-Mud-hin (the compromiser) Allaah’s Hudood (orders and limits) and (in comparison to) the one who violates them (Allaah’s limits and orders) is like example of people who drew lots for (seats on) a ship.  Some of them were on its lower part and others were on its upper part. So those that were on its lower part would pass by those in the upper one with the water which troubled them (the people in the upper part). Then one of them (the people in the lower part) took an axe and started making a hole in the bottom of the vessel. The people of the upper part came and said: ‘What is wrong with you?’  He replied, “You have been troubled much by me and I have to get water.” Now if they prevent him from doing that they will save him and themselves, but if they leave him (to do what he wants), they will destroy him and themselves.

Reported by al-Bukhaaree in his Saheeh, [the Book of] Shahaadaat (Witnesses), Hadeeth (2686), Imaam Ahmad in his Musnad (4/268,269), at-Tirmdihee in al-Fitan (2173), Ibn Hibbaan as in al-Ihsaan (297, 298).

The wording of this Hadeeth with Imaam Ahmad and at-Tirmidhee is: The example of the one who abides by Allaah’s orders and limits in comparison to al-Mud-hin (the compromiser) of Allaah’s Hudood (orders and limits) is like the example of people who drew lots for (seats on) a ship at sea. So some of them attained the upper part of it and the others got the lower part. Then those on the lower part climb up/ascend to draw water to drink and they pour it upon the people on the upper part. The people on the upper part said: “We will not let you ascend and harm us.” So those on the lower part said: “Then indeed we will have to bore into the bottom of the ship in order to get water to drink.” If they prevent them and forbid them from doing that they will all be saved and if they leave them they will all drown.

Al-Mud-hin (the Compromiser): He is the flatterer who sees and hears al-Munkaraat (the evil) from the innovations and other than it and does not forbid from it. Rather he flatters and compromises with those who fall into it, perpetrate it and defend it. So how about if he goes beyond that to defending them, beautifies their image (present them in favourable light) and bears witness for them that they are from Ahlus-Sunnah. So how will he be, if he transgresses beyond all that by forsaking those who forbid from it, making the people think that they (Ahlus-Sunnah) are not upon the truth and are opposers to the correct Manhaj.

These stances encourage the perpetrators of these evils to remain upon their misguidance; it compels people with weak personalities to have good suspicion of them and to plunge them into their outstretched arms and to aiding and defending them. [These are] the affairs which have lead many people to turn away from the Manhaj of the Salaf as-Saalih in many different countries.

It is incumbent upon this type [of people] to fear Allaah. They should look again at and revise their stances with seriousness and sincerity. They should comprehend the dangerous effect resulting from their stances; for which they will asked about in front of Allaah ý The Mighty & Majestic ý on the day when no soul will be able to benefit another whatsoever.

Furthermore, it is incumbent upon them to look again to their Bitaanah (close friends and companions) with seriousness for indeed the matter is dangerous.

And I remind you of the statement of Allaah the Most High:

ٱلۡأَخِلَّآءُ يَوۡمَٮِٕذِۭ بَعۡضُهُمۡ لِبَعۡضٍ عَدُوٌّ إِلَّا ٱلۡمُتَّقِينَ

Friends on that Day will be foes one to another except Al-Muttaqoon (pious).

[Surah Az-Zukhruf (43): 67]

يَـٰٓأَيُّہَا ٱلَّذِينَ ءَامَنُواْ كُونُواْ قَوَّٲمِينَ بِٱلۡقِسۡطِ شُہَدَآءَ لِلَّهِ وَلَوۡ عَلَىٰٓ أَنفُسِكُمۡ أَوِ ٱلۡوَٲلِدَيۡنِ وَٱلۡأَقۡرَبِينَ‌ۚ

O You Who believe! Stand out firmly for justice, as witnesses to Allaah even against yourselves, or your parents, or your kin. [Surah an-Nisa: 135]

And [I also remind you] with the statement of the Messenger of Allaah- Salla Allaahu alaihi wasallam: The Deen (Religion) is an-Naseehah (sincerity and sincere advising), The Deen (Religion) is an-Naseehah (sincerity and sincere advising)” he said it three times. They said: “To whom or Messenger of Allaah?” He said: “To Allaah, to His book, to His Messenger, to leaders of the Muslims and their common people.”

I remind you with the Hadeeth of the virtuous Companion Jareer bin Abdullaah al-Bajalee -radi Allaahu anhu – on the authority of Ziyaad bin ‘ilaaqah who said: I heard Jareer bin Abdullaah stand and deliver a khutbah on the day al-Mugheerah bin Sh’ubah died saying:

Upon you is the taqwa of Allaah the Mighty and Majestic, sobriety and tranquility until the (new) Ameer comes for indeed he will come now. Then he said: seek forgiveness for your Ameer for indeed he used to love pardoning (others). And he said: To proceed: then indeed I came to the Messenger of Allaah -Salla Allaahu alaihi wasallam -and I said to him: “I want to pledge allegiance to you upon Islaam. So he put a condition upon me that I should (sincerely) advise every Muslim. So I gave him the pledge of allegiance upon that and by the Lord of this Masjid indeed I am to all of you a (sincere) advisor.” Then he sought Allaah’s forgiveness and descended (from the pulpit).

Reported by al-Bukhaaree in his Saheeh, [the Book of] Faith (al-Imaan), Chapter: the statement of the Prophet Salla Allaahu alaihi wasallam -: “The Deen is sincerity to Allaah, His Prophet, the leaders of the Muslims and their common people. Hadeeth (58). And Imaam Ahmad (4/357). And also reported by al-Bukhaaree in [the Book of] Faith (al-Imaan), Hadeeth (57), and Muslim in [the Book of] Faith (al-Imaan), Hadeeth (56) both of them reported it in summarized form.

I remind them with that which is in these Aayaat and Ahadeeth from the obligation of establishing the sincere advice to Allaah, His Book, His Messenger, the rulers of the Muslims and their common people. And with that which they contain from the obligation of forbidding the evil and the severe threat for those who do not establish these obligations and do not forbid the evil.

And I say to them as Jareer said: By the Lord of this Masjid indeed I am to all of you a sincere adviser.” But rather I say: By the Lord of the Heavens and the Earth indeed I am to them a (sincere) adviser.

I remind them of the statement of Anas -radia Allaahu ‘anhu – : “Indeed you do actions which in your eyes are considered more finer than the hair, whilst we used to consider them during the life-time of the Messenger of Allaah -salla Allaahu alaihi wasallam- to be from al-moobiqaat (the destructive/deadly sins).”

Reported by al-Bukhaaree in [the Book of] Heart-Softening narrations (ar-Riqaaq), Hadeeth (6492), Ahmad in his ‘Musnad’ (3/157) and Aboo Y’alaa in his ‘Musnad’ Hadeeth (4207) and (4314).

And from my advice to them is that they should study the Manhaj of the Salaf as-Saalih from its sources and adhere to it and implement it upon themselves and others.

I ask Allaah that He grants them insight into that which they are ignorant of and thus erred in or done it with deliberate intent.

And may the peace and blessings of Allaah be upon our prophet Muhammad, his family and his companions.

The Correct Stance towards the differing of the scholars concerning Jarh Wat-Tadeel

Question to Shaikh Ubaid Al-Jaabiri [may Allaah preserve him]:

If I heard the statement of a scholar in a cassette or read it in a book concerning some person that he is indeed an innovator, but I did not see the evidence, is it then binding upon me to be cautious of this person and be satisfied that he is indeed an innovator, or do I wait until I find evidence for that?


All praise is due to Allaah the Lord of the Aalameen and may Allaah send His Salutations of peace and blessings upon our prophet Muhammad, his family and companions. To proceed: I say: Indeed Ahlus Sunnah do not pass judgement of Bidah (i.e. declare one to be from ahlul bidah) against anyone unless they are fully acquainted with him and completely examine what he is upon and know his methodology perfectly, in general and in detail. And from this point (in our discussion), this affair leads us to two standpoints:

The first standpoint: It is about the one against whom a scholar or scholars have passed a judgement that he is an innovator, whilst other scholars from Ahlus Sunnah like them do not differ (about this judgement). Beware, I say: Others from Ahlus Sunnah do not differ with them; so we accept their criticism against him (i.e. the one declared a man of bidah). We accept their speech and are cautious about him.  So as long as a Sunni Scholar passed judgement against him and he was criticised by a Sunni scholar, whilst the rest of Ahlus Sunnah amongst the contemporaries of this scholar–his brothers and sons amongst the scholars–did not raise (an opposition), then his  speech must be accepted.  That is because this Sunni Scholar who criticised a man did not do so except based on an affair that is clear to him and established upon proof.  This is something related to the religion of Allaah–the one who criticises or commends knows that he is responsible for what he says and for the ruling or judgement he gives. He knows that he is held accountable by Allaah (The Most High) even before the people question him.

The Second Standpoint: If this person who has been criticized by a scholar or scholars and they passed a judgement against him with what drops his status, and it became obligatory to be cautious of him; but then they are opposed by others who judged him to be trustworthy and that he is upon the Sunnah, or gave other judgements in opposition to the judgements of those other (scholars) who criticized him; then in this case, as long as these (scholars) and those (scholars) are upon the Sunnah and all of them are trustworthy and people of integrity in our view, we should look to the evidence. This is why they (i.e. the scholars) say: “The one who knows is a proof against the one who does not know.”

A criticizer who stated about such and such person that he is an innovator and a deviant, whilst producing evidence from the books of the criticized person or from his cassette tapes, or from the transmissions of the reliable narrators about him, then this obligates on us to accept his speech and abandon the (speech) of those who gave commendations in opposition to the one who criticized.  That is because those who criticized him presented evidences that are hidden from the others due some reasons, or due to the fact that the one who commended did not read or hear (anything or something negative) about the criticized; rather he based his commendation upon what he knew about him previously and that he was upon the Sunnah. Therefore, this criticized person against whom evidence is established is truly declared unreliable and the proof is with the one who established the evidence.  And it is incumbent upon the one who seeks the truth to follow the evidence and he does not seek to take a path to the right or the left, or saying: “I abstain of my own accord.” That is because we have not been obligated with this from the Salaf.  Indeed, it is a prescribed obligation to accept the speech of the one who established the evidence.  And the Sunni Scholar who opposed those who criticized (based on clear proofs) is excused and his status and honour are maintained in our eyes. We recognize what –by the will of Allaah–he possesses of virtue and exalted status.

A scholar from Ahlus Sunnah is only a human. He can be distracted and forgetful, and he can be deceived by evil people; or he used to consider a 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 being 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 considered to be people of leadership and virtue in the religion- whilst the affair of this trickster and plotter is hidden from that noble scholar, which had he known of 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 and plotter’ based on what is found in 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 obligated on you to be fair and to be free from that wild and zealous attachment, and from the desires that blinds a person. It is obligatory upon you that your search should be for the truth.

Question to Shaikh Ubaid [may Allaah preserve him]:

What is the obligation upon the common Salafis concerning those du’aat (callers) about whom the scholars differ in their commendations and criticisms, regardless whether they (i.e. the common Salafis) are aware or unaware of their mistakes (i.e. the mistakes of those callers)?


I say: I advise you; neither accept cassettes nor books except those of a person whom you know to be upon the Sunnah and a witness of that is established for him—the one well-known to be upon the Sunnah and an opposition to it is not manifested from him. This is an (abiding) general principle applied to him whilst he is alive and after his death.  The one who passed away and we regarded him to be upon the Sunnah, then in our view he is upon the Sunnah and we ask Allaah to keep him firm upon it in the afterlife [i.e. Allaah grants him firmness to answer the questions in the grave due to adherence to the Sunnah (Tawheed and following the Messenger) and resurrects him in the afterlife as a person of Sunnah] just as he was kept firm upon it whilst he was alive…aameen. This is the first affair.

If the affair of a person is hidden from you–the one whose books and cassettes are famous and his fame is widespread–then ask those who are well acquainted with him and those who know about his state of affairs.  That is because neither is the Sunnah hidden nor are its people. A man’s Tazkiyah (i.e. the clear witness that he is upright upon the Sunnah) are his own actions. His Tazkiyah are his own actions that he is upon the Sunnah. It is the witness and the people mention him with it during his life and after his death.

There is none who hides behind the Sunnah– the people beguiled by him, gathered around him to learn, adhered to him, became dependent on him and accepted everything he said–except that Allaah will reveal his affair, uncover and expose his concealed state of affairs to specific individuals and to the general public, regarding what was hidden and apparent of his deception, his mixing truth with falsehood, his plots and deceitful practices.  Allaah facilitates men of virtue, intelligence, wisdom, strength and exceptional natural ability–possessors of knowledge, skill and sound understanding of the religion–through whom He (Allaah) unveils the affair of that trickster, dubious and deceitful person.

Therefore, it is incumbent upon you that when the state of that person is made clear–the one whose fame is widespread etc.–then you should be cautious of him as long as he was warned against by those people of knowledge and Imaan who are upon the Sunnah; for indeed they will unveil his affair with evidences.  And there is no hindrance in unveiling the state of that person who has been warned against by a scholar or scholars with the appropriate etiquettes and in a good manner because that scholar will say to you: “I saw this and that in him, and I saw this and that in the book of such and such, or I heard this or that in the cassette of such and such.” Therefore, you have clear evidence that will unveil what was hidden from you, and that the one whose fame is widespread and his speech is pleasant is one who hides something of innovation and plotting, which cannot be compared to what he manifests from the Sunnah.

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).

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

The Traits of An Innovator: Ali Al-Halabi’s Cutting off Speech,  Playing About with it and Distorting it’s Meanings. Abu Usaamah himself said about Ali Al-Halabi – “ I am a supporter of Ali Hasan Al-Halabi. I support him. I support what he is upon.”1.

Ali Al-Halabi is known for his cutting off speech, adding to it and distorting it, in order to support his corrupt principles. An example of this which follows is his cutting from the speech of Imaam Abdur-Rahmaan As-Sa’di (rahimahullah). Here let us first present to the reader the original text from the Imaam himself, before any distortions were added by Al-Halabi. Once the reader acquaints himself with such trickery then this is in reality enough (a reason) to bring Al-Halabi down and warn against him!

A specimen of the complete speech of Imaam Sa’di from Ar-riyaad An-Naadhirah’ page 209 ^^^

من الغلط الفاحش الخطر قبول قول الناس بعضهم ببعض، ثم يبنى عليه السامع حبا أو بغضا، ومدحا وذما؛ فكم حصل بهذا الغلط من أمور صار عاقبتها الندامة، وكم أشاع الناس عن الناس أمورا لا حقيقة لها بالكلية، أو لها بعض الحقيقة فنميت بالكذب والزور، وخصوصا ممن عرفوا بعدم المبالاة بالنقل، أو عرف منهم الهوى.

فالواجب على العاقل التثبت والتحرز، وعدم التسرع.

وبهذا يعرف دين المرء ورزانته وعقله

Imaam as Sa’di (rahimahullah) said in the above that (slightly paraphrased) “from the repugnant dangerous mistakes is when people accept one another’s speech, then the one who hears that speech establishes love, hate, praise and dispraise based on that”. Then the Imaam further stated that “how many mistakes have been committed [through this behaviour] regarding affairs whose end result became a matter of regret?!  And how many affairs have been spread by people from other people which are complete unreality?! Or it has some reality, so lies and falsehood are added to it, especially those known for not having concern regarding what they narrate, or known for following desires. Therefore, it is obligated on an ‘aaqil (a sensible person with sound reasoning and intellect) that he ascertains, takes precaution and not to be hasty. And by way of this, the religion of a person is known [i.e. the soundness of his path], his composure and ‘aql [sound reasoning or intellect]”

So the above statement is an example of that which was doctored by Al-Halabi purposely to suit his own agenda and methodology. Ali Al-Halabi transmitted a cut down version, in his book [Manhajus Salafus Saaleh’ 2nd Edition’ page 229] from the statement of Imaam Abdur-Rahmaan As-Sadi (rahimahullaah) as follows:

 من الغلط الفاحش الخطر قبول قول الناس بعضهم ببعض، ثم يبنى عليه السامع حبا أو بغضا، ومدحا وذما؛ فكم حصل بهذا الغلط من

 أمور صار عاقبتها الندامة، وكم أشاع الناس عن الناس أمورا لا حقيقة لها بالكلية،

 فالواجب على العاقل التثبت والتحرز، وعدم التسرع.

وبهذا يعرف دين المرء ورزانته وعقله

So based on the above version (transmitted by Al-Halabi Al-Mubtadi), it means that the Imaam said “from the repugnant dangerous mistakes is when people accept one another’s speech, then the one who hears that speech establishes love, hate, praise and dispraise based on that”; then he [Halabi] went on to complete it with “how many mistakes have been committed (through this behaviour) regarding affairs whose end result became a matter of regret?!  And how many affairs have been spread by people from other people which are a complete unreality?! Therefore, it is obligated on an aaqil (i.e. a sensible person of intellect) that he ascertains, takes precaution and not to be hasty. And by way of this, the religion of a person is known (i.e. soundness of his path), his composure and aql (sound reasoning or intellect).

After Ali Al-Halabi transmitted this statement, he commented, saying: “Be careful, may Allaah protect you; the Shaikh (i.e. Imaam Sadi) did not distinguish in this warning regarding accepting from a thiqah (a reliable person) and ghayr thiqah (an unreliable person)! Indicating to the mistake that may occur even from a reliable person; and the مفاسد  (corrupt affairs), محن  (adversities, trials ordeals etc),  بلاء  (affliction) and  إحن  (enmity, rancour, malice arises from some affair) that results from it. (See specimen on next page)

Dear Reader take note! Halabi purposely cut out from the speech of Imaam As-Sadi in order to confuse the reader. The principle utilised by ahlus-Sunnah is that we accept the news given by the one who is thiqah (the trustworthy, reliable person) without the need to verify or check the statement. Halabi wants to distort and change this principle and so purposely omits the following sentence:

[و لها بعض الحقيقة فنميت بالكذب والزور، وخصوصا ممن عرفوا بعدم المبالاة بالنقل، أو عرف منهم الهوى –

Or it has some reality, so lies and falsehood are added to it, especially those known for not having concern regarding what they narrate, or known for following desires.”

So why is it omitted? Because if he were to include the full statement, it would no longer give credence to his own innovated principle of “having to verify from everyone – thiq’a (trustworthy) or ghayr thiq’a (non trustworthy)”. Furthermore he makes manifest his own innovated principle, as part of his notes, in order to pollute the reader’s thinking into holding that you “must check and verify the statements of a thiqa’ person”, in the same way you must verify one who isn’t thiqa’. This is in contradiction to even how Imaam as-Sa’di(rahimahullah) presented it, as he was making clear to the reader to beware those who are untrustworthy- not trustworthy.

So let us see what Imaam Sadi (rahimahullaah) stated regarding the news given by a faasiq (open sinner) and a truthful person. Allaah (The Most High) said: “O you who believe! If a faasiq comes to you with news, verify it.”

Imaam Sadi commented on this ayah saying:

“This is also from the etiquettes expected from those of understanding to adorn themselves with and implement. And that when a faasiq informs them of some news, they [should] verify the news he transmits (to them) and don’t just simply accept it; for indeed there is a grave danger in that and [risk] of falling into sin. Because if his news is made the same as that of a truthful upright person, the decision is made in accordance with that and what it necessitates. Then lost of lives and wealth occurs without due right due to that information, resulting in regret.

Rather what it is obligatory is that when a faasiq transmits news, it is verified and clarified. If the proofs and supporting factors affirm his truthfulness, it is acted upon and believed. And if they indicate to falsehood, it is declared false and not acted upon.

So in this is a proof that the news [transmitted by] the truthful one is accepted and the news from the liar rejected, while the news from a faasiq is (temporarily) suspended as we have mentioned, and that is why the Salaf would accept narrations from many of those (particular) khawaarij who were well known to be truthful, even if they were wicked sinners.”

Abu Usaamah’s Similar deceitful, cutting, pasting & doctoring to suit his own agenda- Live on stage! A Mirror of the Above from Halabi…

In 2010 Abu Usaamah ad-Dhahabi carried out a similar action, whereby he added to the words of Shaikh Sadlaan during a tele-link. This is an imitation of his mubtadi Shaykh Ali Al Halabi—about whom Abu Usamah himself said (in his feeble video defence when ending up in the wrong masjid):

I am a supporter of Ali Hasan Al-Halabi. I support him. I support what he is upon. His mistakes we put that aside. I say that in public and I say that in private.

Ustaadh Abdulilah Lahmami (may Allaah preserve him) caught him at the time, writing:

“Then Abu Usama Khalifah added in the translation that Sheikh Rabee’ should stop “cursing the dead people… “Due to a hadeeth of the Prophet salallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam mentioning this. This addition was not mentioned by Sheikh Sadlan in the Arabic so take note.”

So once again, Abu Usaamah was caught out, adding to the speech of the Shaykh in order to cause confusion, and fitnah; and spread rancour in the hearts of the people toward Shaykh Rabee’ (hafidhahullah)- and this due to nothing except, that which burns inside him, against the noble Shaykh; and the Salafis as a whole. Ustaadh Abdulilah (may Allaah preserve him) also said:

“After visiting Sheikh Rabee’ ibn Haadi Al-Madkhali this weekend, he added that one should clarify to the people that he does not curse the dead (as Abu Usama khalifah added) and likewise to make mention that the scholars have always refuted the errors of those who have erred. Likewise, these refutations are a mercy for the dead so that people don’t follow them in their errors.’’2

Here we remind you again the statement of Shaikh Muhammad Baazmool: “And whenever you find the statement of a muhaqqiq scholar being utilized as proof by a person of bid’ah and falsehood in seeking to establish his falsehood; and you refer that statement back to its original source- you will not find except that this (person of falsehood) did cut off and separate some part of it from another part.’’3

And so we can see that the bid’ee Abu Usaamah is just a mirror of his innovator Shaykh Ali Hassan Al-Halabi. There is no difference in their methodology! This is affirmed by Abu Usaamah ad-Dhahabi’s own statements as quoted before; as well as his actions, wherein both have been caught twisting speech of the Scholars of truth and Sunnah, in order to suit their agenda and ideology that they want to promote.

It is important that the noble reader is made aware of such sneaky trickery, lest they be taken in by their speech, and be taken astray, and with Allah is the success.

[11] A Series in Response to Abu Usaama’s Habitual Deceitfulness-[SP’s Salafiyyah Is a Great Source of Heartache, Grief and Anxiety For The Bid’ee!]

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

In his deceptive response to the Friday incident at al-Markazus Salafi, the Bid’ee attacked our beloved teachers, elders and brothers at SP, as usual accusing them of Ghuloo. We have already replied to the Bid’ee’s slander that we are upon a bidah principle –[Link: http://www.salaficentre.com/2016/04/8-a-series-in-response-to-abu-usaamas-habitual-deceitfulness-motivated-by-deep-malice-he-made-a-fruitless-and-desperate-attempt-to-prove-that-we-follow-a-shaikh-who-is-upon-bidah/%5D and now we will briefly make known why the Bid’ee hates the students and elders at SP.

Indeed, the malice and hatred harboured by the Bid’ee against the Salafiyoon at SP is due to nothing else other than the fact that they repel his lowly desires and corrupt hizbi ambitions. Shaikh Shamsuddeen Al-Afghani (rahimahullaah) said:  ”Ahlul Bidah are the ones who kindle trials and disorder.  They are a chaotic people and are deprived of safety and security.  They are a people of trials and disturbance as opposed to Ahlul Hadeeth Was-Sunan (i.e. those who steadfastly follow the ahaadeeth of the Prophet and his Sunnah). Have they (i.e. the people of Sunnah) committed what the people of bidah and trials have committed?! The people of bidah trespass- alongside enmity and innovation- whilst Ahlus Sunnah respond and defend (the religion)”. [Source: عداء الماتريدية للعقيدة السلفية 1/26-27]

The Bid’ee cannot come to terms with the fact that SP – by the Mercy and Tawfeeq of Allaah- have remained steadfast, neither compromising with Mubtadi’ah nor their obstinate followers; rather they continue to transmit the sound Aqeedah and Manhaj from the scholars. He cannot come to terms with the fact his continued public stunts -in order to slander SP- has always met failure. And among those  incidents was Shaikh Wasiyullah’s first visited to the Uk, Shaikh Sadlaan’s visit, the different attempts to entice speakers from Saudi, such as Dr Ali Shibl to beautify Greenlane’s ugly affair etc. All these public stunts failed miserably because SP held onto the sound Manhaj positions, for regardless who visits Greenlane’s Admin or speaks good of them, their hizbiyyah still manifests itself like the midday sun. How can an Admin that cooperate with the people of Bidah [at Ihyaa at-Turaath, al-Maghrib Institute and other deviants] be benefitted by any praise?! A person is judged based on what he is upon, so listen to the clarification here: http://safeshare.tv/v/bWPR3Eacn4k

SP did not compromise with anyone, but the Bid’ee compromised and thus ended up in the fitnah of the Mubtadi’ah, the people of Bidah, the hizbiyyoon, the Mu’mayyi’oon – be it Al-Halabi, Al-Maribi, Ihyaa at-Turaath etc Rather, the Bid’ee has even defended Ismaeel Menk – a deobandi. See refutation of Ismaaeel-Menk:http://www.salaficentre.com/2014/01/who-is-mufti-menk/    http://safeshare.tv/v/ss570a54c03bd31

The Bid’ee beautifies the filth of these people of bidah; yet SP are the Ghulaat! This is the despicable opinion of this spiteful transgressor against those who are foremost in bringing clarity in the West, and continue to do so by the permission and Tawfeeq of Allaah (The Most High). These are the Ghulaat, according to Abu Usaama, because they expose his lowly desires, repel his crimes against the Salafi Manhaj and unveil the malicious insinuations of his mentors.  None trusts or entertains this spiteful transgressor except those who employ him at Greenlane to do their dirty job or those who are unaware of his true state of affairs. As for his unsuspecting followers, there is nothing that describes his relationship with them better than the saying: ‘’The trust of the innocent is the liar’s most useful tool.’’

As for the Salafiyyoon, he attempts to stab them with his bidah, deceptions and doubts, but when caught he cuts himself – bleeding and playing the victim game. This is why whenever he seeks to deceive and gets caught, he screams ‘the Ghulaat!’  This behaviour is nothing else but a painful manifestation of frustration because the Salafiyyoon already know that his lies and deceptions are underpinned by an unquestionable acquaintance with the truth he wishes to hide or distort.

The Salafiyyoon know that his perverse and strong desire to slander them is underpinned by nothing else but unjustified vengeance –  stop destroying my plots against the sound Manhaj positions or else I will slander you!!! This is what his actions and statements necessitate; so if what he hides is worse than what he manifests- and only Allaah knows this- then may Allaah open his heart to guidance or give the spiteful transgressor what he deserves. Aameen

The Manhaj of SP is clear and there are no ambiguities in the affair, so ask yourselves the following questions:

*Does Abu Khadeejah, Abu Hakeem and Maktabah Salafiyyah defend or co-operate with a single Mubtadi? No indeed; rather it is the bid’ee who promotes Mubtadiah!

*Do they have any links with a single Mubtadi or an organization that defends Mubtadi’ah? Do they co-operate with the Jamaa’aat Siyaasiyah or those who co-operate with such Jamaa’aat? No indeed; rather it is the Bid’ee who cooperates with Ihyaa at-Turaath, Al-Maghrib Institute and others!

*Do they co-operate with ahlul bidah wal-ahwaa or anyone associated with them? No indeed; rather it is the bid’ee who promotes and defends the deobandi Ismaaeel Menk!

*Do they promote the innovated principles of Hasan Al-Banna and Ikhwaan al muslimeen, or associate with anyone who does so? No indeed; rather it is Bid’ee who praises al-Maribi (an upholder of ikhwaani principles)!

*Do they uphold the false Manhaj of Muwaazanah or associate with anyone who promotes such false principles? No indeed; rather it is the Bid’ee who praises Al-Maribi (an upholder of Muwaazanaat)!

*Do they defend Sayyid Qutb or co-operate with anyone who defends him? No indeed; rather it is the Bid’ee who sits with Ihyaa at-Turaath (sympathisers of Sayyid)!

*Do they endorse the false principles: “We do not disparage but we only correct mistakes’’ and “Let’s not make our differing about someone else a reason for differing among ourselves?’’ No indeed; rather it is the Bid’ee who defends and supports Ali al-Halabi (an upholder of these false principles)!

*Do they make a differentiation between Aqeedah and Manhaj when the scholars pass judgements against the people of bidah, or do they have a link with anyone who calls to these false principles? No indeed; rather their websites are filled with clarifications regarding this important affair!

*Do they hold the false view that the Salaf differed in Aqeedah, or do they have a link with anyone who holds this false view? No indeed; they have no link with any of these people!

*Do they revile the Sahaabah and defend those who call them Ghuthaa-iyyah, or co-operate with anyone who defends such people? No indeed; rather it is the Bid’ee who praises al Maribi (the innovator of this speech)!

*Do they utilise innovated principles in order to place the misguided sects, parties and organizations into the arena of ahlus Sunnah, or do they co-operate with anyone who deliberately utilises such false principles? No indeed; rather it is the Bid’ee who praises al-Maribi (an upholder of this calamity)!

*Do they utilise the principles of the contemporary Mubtadi’ah, such as Ali Al-Halabi, Abul Hasan al-Maribi, Muhammad Al-Maghraawi, Yahyah al-Hajoori and others similar to them, or do they co-operate with anyone who defends these Mubtadi’ah after being well aware of the unambiguous knowledge based refutations against them? No indeed; rather they refute all these Mubtadi’ah!

*Do they praise Ahmad Raza Khan Brelvi, or was it Abdul Haadi who praised Him? No indeed; rather they refute those who shelter the people who uttered such falsehood!

The Reality of Maktabah salafiyyah




Indeed, it is not SP who commit crimes against the Salafi Manhaj, rather it is the Bid’ee and his associates who are guilty of it. We remind ourselves once again; Shaikh Shamsuddeen Al-Afghani (rahimahullaah) said:  Ahlul Bidah are the ones who kindle trials and disorder.  They are a chaotic people and are deprived of safety and security.  They are a people of trials and disturbance as opposed to Ahlul Hadeeth Was-Sunan (i.e. those who steadfastly follow the ahaadeeth of the Prophet and his Sunnah). Have they (i.e. the people of Sunnah) committed what the people of bidah and trials have committed?! The people of bidah trespass- alongside enmity and innovation- whilst Ahlus Sunnah respond and defend (the religion). [Source: عداء الماتريدية للعقيدة السلفية 1/26-27]
