A Precise Statement of Ath-Thawree For The Followers of the innovator Yusuf Al-Qaradaawee

Sufyaan Ath-Thawree (rahimahullaah) said:

Evil deeds are a disease and the scholars are a remedy; so who will cure the disease if the scholars become corrupted’’

[Hilyatul Awliyaa: 6/361]

Part 1: I asked Abu Khadeejah about Abdur-Raheem McCarthy-Another Wolf In Sheep’s Clothing

All praise is due to Allaah and may His salaah and salaam be upon our noble Prophet Muhammad, his family and companions.  To proceed:


I [Abu Mu-aawiyyah (Abdullaah al-Gambi) asked Ustaadh Abdul Waahid Abu Khadeejah (may Allaah preserve him) about the state of affairs of Abdur-Raheem McCarthy Al-Amreekee after coming across his mixing haqq with Baatil, his exaggerations and defence of the people of hizbiyyah such as the likes of Abu Muslimah and the people to be treated the same as Ahlul Bidah such as Abu Usaamah; so he (Ustaadh Abu Khadeejah) said to me: ‘’Narrate from me that I heard Shaikh Muhammad Bin Haadee (may Allaah preserve him) saying: ‘’I warn against Abdur-Raheem.’’

Next topic Inshaa-Allaah:

The false claim of Abdur Raheem that the Salafis hide the commendation (Tadeel) given to certain scholars who were imprisoned and promote the Jarh against them.  Indeed, we do not know whether to cry or laugh at this nonsense.  Abdur-Raheem–the deceiver– neither mentioned the names of those so called scholars nor did he give details of the Tadeel for them and the Jarh against them.  Indeed, we do not expect the likes of Abdur-Raheem to be brave enough to argue his position with Ilm, proofs and evidences; rather he utilised the methods of the Hizbiyyoon (i.e. general statements that can be utilised for both haqq and baatil, and then he chose to utilise them for baatil).   Inshaa-Allaah, we will discuss this in the next post and also the affair of Saeed Rageah another deceiver who exaggerates and mixes haqq with baatil.



The Importance of Knowing Men–Muhaddith Abdur-Rahmaan Al-Mu’allimee Al-Yamaani

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


Sometimes a narration may come from someone from whom it is obligatory to accept, or from whom it is obligatory to reject, or from whom it is necessary to withhold from (until further clarification). And how foolish it would be, that that which is from the truth which the Seal of the Prophets conveyed from His Lord, the Mighty and Majestic and that which is from the falsehood that Allaah and His Messenger are free of, should be known by other than knowing the conditions of the narrators.

It is likewise for the various historical occurrences. In fact the need for knowing the condition of those who narrate them is even more severe, due to the prevalent neglect in the narration of such events and occurrences.

(And this is) in addition to the fact that being acquainted with condition of men is itself one of most important branches of history. So when it is necessary to be acquainted with the condition and state of the narrators, it is also necessary to make this known, so that everyone who knows the condition of a narrator should inform (others) about his condition, so that the people may know of it.

And this Ummah has (indeed) acted upon this obligation in the desired manner.

[Part 1] The Reality of Abu Eesaa Niamatullaah–A Wolf In Sheep’s Clothing

All praise be to Allaah and may His Salaah and Salaam be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family and companions.  To proceed:


Indeed, the Prophet (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam) said: ‘’Three things destroy: The greed that is obeyed, the desires that are followed and a person being amazed with his own opinion. [Silsilah Al-hadeeth as-saheehah: Number: 1802: 4/412-416]


Shaikh Raslaan (may Allaah preserve him) said:

This (i.e. these three affairs) are never in harmony with a (person’s) complete return to the command of the Prophet (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam) [For further details: See:  Ash-Shi-aaraat Wahdahaa Laa Takfee: page: 35].


The Shaikh also said:

Indeed the great religion of Islaam is founded upon knowledge and not ignorance; but when a person is amazed with himself and his opinion, and when splitting occurs in the Ummah in the big affairs of knowledge and every foolish one formulates his own independent judgement; there comes about an uncontrollable chaos and it then proceeds upon a path that has no halter, and then it becomes an affair of trial, corruption, confusion and deviation, and an affair in which truth is confounded with falsehood…[end of quote] [For further details see: Ash-Shi-aaraat Wahdahaa Laa Takfee: page:39 and footnote number 1]


This short article is a reminder to the salafi brothers and sisters in Manchester concerning the real state of affairs of Abu Eesaa Niqmatullaah.  This brother is well known to the Salafiyyoon at Al-Markaz As-Salafi (Cheethamhill–Manchester).  He is a deceiver and caller to some of the people of bidah and hizbiyyah.  His companionship with some of the people of bidah is well-known; rather he openly declares his allegiance to such people.  Although he may utter statements which the common people regard to be in harmony with the Manhaj of the Salaf, however this is all in contradiction to his real state of affairs.  Shaikh Islaam Ibn Taymiyyah (rahimahullaah) said: ‘’The sensible person does not (merely) look at what is apparent, rather he looks at the reality.’’ [Al-Uboodiyyah]

The Reality of Abu Eesaa Niqmatullaah

Reader: After reading the following narrations of the Salaf, then visit the link below them to find out the reality of Abu Eesaa


Shaikhul Islaam Ibn Taymiyyah (rahimahullaah) said:

‘’And Imaan is known about a man, just as all the states of his heart are known by way of his (outward) allegiances, enmities, his rejoicing, anger, hunger, thirst, and other such affairs.  For these matters have certain outward binding necessities [Lawaazim Dhaahirah] and the outward matters necessitate inward matters.  And this is a matter known, the people know this concerning the one that they have experienced and tested.  [Minhaajus Sunnah: 8/475][http://www.salafipublications.com/sp…articlePages=1]


Ibn Mas’ood (radiyallaahu-anhu) said:

Indeed a person walks alongside and accompanies the one whom he loves and who is like him.’’ [Al-Ibaanah: 2/2476] [http://www.salafipublications.com/sp…articlePages=1]


Imaam Al-Awzaa’ee (rahimahullaah) said:

Whoever hides his innovation from us will not be able to hide his companionship from us.’’ [Al-Ibaanah: 2/476][ http://www.salafipublications.com/sp…articlePages=1]


Al-Amash (rahimahullaah) said:

‘’They (salaf) did not used to ask anything more about a person after having asked about three affairs: Who he walks with, who he enter upon (i.e. visits) and who he associates with amongst the people.’’ [Al-Ibaanah:2/478][http://www.salafipublications.com/sp…articlePages=1]


Abdullaah Bin Mas’ood (radiyallaahu-anhu) said:

Make consideration of the (regions of the) earth by the names given to them and make consideration of a person by his companion.’’ [2/479][http://www.salafipublications.com/sp…articlePages=1]


Muhammad Bin Ubaid (rahimahullaah) said:

‘’The Ahlul Ahwaa (people of desires) hide everything except their intimate friendship and companionship.’’ [Al-Ibaanah: 2/482] [http://www.salafipublications.com/sp…articlePages=1]

Reader: Ponder again upon the words of Shaikh Raslaan:

But when a person is amazed with himself and his opinion, and when splitting occurs in the Ummah in the big affairs of knowledge and every foolish one formulates his own independent judgement; there comes about an uncontrollable chaos and it then proceeds upon a path that has no halter, and then it becomes an affair of trial, corruption, confusion and deviation, and an affair in which truth is confounded with falsehood…

Some speakers at Greenlane Involved themselves in the Scandalous cover up of the mistakes of Yusuf Estes

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


Ustaadh Moosaa Richardson (may Allaah preserve him) wrote:


Some of our honest and unsuspecting brothers and sisters in Islam who have been affected or even outright victimized by the deviance of Yusuf Estes and his acrobatic co-stars at Huda TV may have a number of concerns regarding Yusuf Estes himself, his errors, the information in this article, or its author.

1. Too harsh, not done with wisdom.

While it is possible for any reader to have his/her own conclusion(s) about the tone of the clarification, whatever conclusion that is reached must not stop the reader from recognizing the truth and following it.

What is strange is that the claim is coming from one of Yusuf’s Huda TV co-stars, Abu Usamah ath-Thahabi, someone known for exaggerations and sensationalism in his speech, with an unhidden (almost) 20 year record of imbalanced flip-flopping and disgraceful behavior in communities in the West.

This is a man who I used to respect and look up to in my early years of study. About 10 years ago, he came to Makkah to translate for an umrah group, and we worked together to translate. I had just finished the first year of my BA studies at Umm al-Qura. Despite all the warnings coming out against Abu Usamah at that time, I still respected him and considered him oppressed. I honestly thought there was a group of “super Salafees” trying to take him out, and that he was a senior student and daa’ee who I should seek advice from.

During that two week period of lectures we translated together, he guided me to a book and placed it in my hands, a book about abandoned Sunnahs by “Mahmood al-Haddaad”. Yes, THE HADDAAD to whom the sect is ascribed, the haddaadees, for their excessive attacks of the scholars, making tabdee’ on them, etc.

And wal-hamdulillaah, in 15 years of seeking knowledge in Saudi Arabia, NO ONE I have EVER sat with or communicated with in ANY way has EVER recommended that I ever read a book by Mahmood al-Haddaad, let alone PUT THE BOOK IN MY HAND and encourage me to read it, OTHER THAN ABU USAAMAH ATH-THAHABEE.


While we should have been busy pre-reading and reviewing for our lessons every day, studying from great scholars and top students of knowledge, we were busy reading al-Haddaad’s book of misguidance behind the scenes and planning how we were going to confront the mashaayikh about the issues raised in that book.

One stupid issue that my “shaykh” Abu Usamah focused on was the “abandoned Sunnah of leaving your shirt buttons open” and Mahmood Haddaad was refuting the scholars and attacking them because they would not agree with him on that issue being a Sunnah. We took the issue to one of our shaykhs who said that undoing the buttons was a custom not a Sunnah. We looked at each other like we knew the reality. Wallaahi, I thank Allaah that He saved me from the true Haddaadiyyah that Abu Usamah was trying to mislead me into, and that He opened my eyes to the reality of this man.  Now, he attacks the Salafee du’aat, calling them haddaadees. Interesting…


Now, he defends Yusuf Estes, saying he’s got something to offer, and he’s somehow like Mujaahid ibn Jabr the great early imam of tafseer?

Now, when placed in front of the choice to aid the distinction of the aqeedah of ahlus-Sunnah from the filth of the Jahmiyyah, he takes an opportunity to defend the complete ignoramus spreading Jahmiyyah, tashbeeh, mockery of the hudood, Quranic justification of George Bush invading Afghanistan, etc. and to speak against the “wisdom” in how he was dealt with.

Al-hamdulillaah the One who showed me his deviance ten years ago, and helped me get away from him and all those like him. And there is nothing like safety in Islam.

While I am open to all those who have advised me about being more wise in dealing with the mistakes of Yusuf Estes, and I am thankful to everyone who has emailed me or called me with advice, and I thank Allaah that I am able to open my heart and try to find good in every email I read, I just find it hard to take Abu Usamah seriously in this matter, quite honestly.

2. This clarification is against Islamic manners, since Yusuf Estes has not been advised.
I assure you that Yusuf Estes has been advised much, regarding this and many other issues. He has not shown a desire to correct his ways, but instead, a love for his reputation that prevents him from rectifying his errors. Besides, whether or not Yusuf Estes has been advised before does not prevent you – right now – from recognizing the truth in this clarification and adopting the correct Islamic beliefs if you have been affected by his teachings.

And while those who speak with this claim, that we are not allowed to clarify our religion until we have advised the offending person first, aside from their inability to actually prove this obligation, they are the first of the people to violate it, as who is speaking openly against the clarification of Yusuf Estes’ errors without first advising privately. Hypocritical double-standards.

3. Yusuf Estes is not a scholar, nor has he claimed to be one, and he makes mistakes like everyone else.

No one is perfect in their da’wah work, and people do make mistakes. We are however required to identify and rectify mistakes attributed the perfect Religion of Allah, especially when they are as offensive as the atrocities committed by Yusuf Estes in the passages quoted in this clarification.

Furthermore, any person who speaks on behalf of Islam is required to speak with knowledge. Speaking about Allah without knowledge is a heinous crime, as mentioned in this clarification. When considering the gravity of the mistakes mentioned in this clarification, a logical conclusion can be reached – Yusuf Estes was simply not qualified to speak on behalf of the Religion in the first place.

It should also be known that Jahm ibn Safwan himself, the one to whom the Jahmiyyah Cult is ascribed, was a common man with no Islamic knowledge. It was only after debating with atheists in attempts to call them to Islam that he developed his line of thinking and began to spread it and then became popular. The wicked beliefs of the Jahmiyyah have since plagued the Muslim Ummah for over 1300 years and they have been the reason for some of the worst trials in the history of Islam! All of this came originally from an ignorant man with no Islamic knowledge! So we must not underestimate the level of harm that an ignoramus can create, even while he intends good.

Jahm was not an imam of innovation by way of knowledge, rather he became an imam because of the number of followers. The founder of the Jahmiyyah cult was just a regular man with no Islamic knowledge who began using philosophy to call some non-Muslims to Islam. So he became considered an imam of misguidance because of the number of people he misled. This is VERY comparable to Yusuf Estes for those who look at the issue with fairness and balance.

There is an excellent response to the false propaganda that Yusuf Estes does not claim to be a scholar, as stated by Assim al-Hakeem, a self-contradictory TV star plagued with the same disease as Yusuf Estes, constantly speaking above his level of understanding. One of the most obvious examples of this is recommending people to listen to Ibn Baaz and Ibn Uthaymeen instead of Rabee’ al-Madkhalee. Both Ibn Baaz and Ibn Uthaymeen (like the other well-known scholars of today) praised al-Madkhalee highly and encourage the masses to benefit from him. Furthermore, his personal website contains several misleading, mistaken fatwaas devoid of any evidence. A quick review of his website shows that. He expects that the people refer back to him as a scholar for fatwaas, and while they even ask for evidence, they only get yes and no answers with no evidence.

The specific response to this man’s false propaganda about Yusuf Estes not claiming to be a scholar can be reviewed here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1Dw9qIFgggQ and it shows just how much he knows about the issues he talks about!

While the whole idea that Yusuf Estes doesn’t have any claim to knowledge is just a smoke-screen anyway… The issues remain. The man has taught Jahmiyyah and other beliefs of KUFR (by consensus) for the last ten years, whether he’s excused because of ignorance or not.


4. This article is the result of hunting for mistakes, like some kind of “witch-hunt”.

I said this three weeks ago in the origina PDF: When scholars and students of knowledge identify and warn the Muslims of deviant beliefs that oppose the consensus of Ahlus-Sunnah in basic matters of Islamic belief, they must not be demonized or slandered. Instead, you should pray for their success and think well of them, as they are fulfilling an essential need of the Muslim nation.

And quite simply, whether the article is the result of a “witch-hunt” or not, this must not prevent you from identifying false beliefs of apostasy and shunning them.

(No need to update this point! Assim al-Hakeem actually comes three weeks later to announce that the clarification is the result of a “witch-hunt”!!)


5. The mistakes of Yusuf Estes are small, excusable errors, and people are blowing them out of proportion.

No honest Muslim with knowledge of aqeedah and the errors of Yusuf Estes could possibly say that.

Go back and read the clarification. By Allah, someone who speaks like this has simply not read or tried to understand the clarification. Or they are filthy hizbees trying to help in their ikhwaanee cover-up.

6. This kind of clarification is ghuluw (religious extremism or going overboard).

Religious extremism is clearly found in the excessive attachments that some Muslims have to popular personalities, which interfere with their ability to view issues with balance and identify falsehood and shun it.

This article invites the reader to identify a number of serious false beliefs being attributed to Islam, and to take the appropriate position on them. This is the furthest thing from ghuluw (religious extremism).

7. The critic has mistakes, too.

Agreed. However, it is Christianity where people must be “free of sin before they cast the first stone.” In Islam, we are required to forbid evil when it appears, while no one is perfect.

Furthermore, the mistakes of the author of this clarification (may Allah forgive him) must not prevent you – right now – from following the truth when it comes to you and shunning falsehood once it becomes known to you.

8. Yusuf Estes has done so much good, and we have to be fair.

Agreed. Muslims are required to be fair and just. The author of the clarification has made no attempt to belittle any good work done by Yusuf Estes. No one’s good deeds are being rejected, ridiculed, criticized, undervalued, or looked down upon in the clarification.

Having said that, the reality is that Yusuf Estes is currently in danger of losing the potential rewards for his good deeds due to his words of apostasy. It is this very article, a bitter dose of live-saving medicine, that could save him from the end result of the horrible path he has chosen, by Allah’s Permission. May Allah give him the strength and courage needed to put aside his personal pride, humbly embrace the correct beliefs of Islam, and abandon the vile statements of apostasy that he has fallen into and spread.

Furthermore, warning the Muslims against what could draw them into the Hellfire could never – in any way whatsoever – be considered an act of injustice.


9. Yusuf Estes has repented and retracted those mistakes.

Actually, while we were hoping for this, fully ready to help him and back him up when he retracts, the exact opposite has taken place. In the last three weeks, he has changed some of his beliefs openly, like saying the Quran is actually a book, yet he adds, “as we have always believed.”

So there is no retraction actually being offered. Only deception. He is lying about his legacy of teachings, and everyone who has seen his teachings over the past ten years knows this clearly.


10. The critic has gone overboard in following Yusuf Estes’ every move.

Assim al-Hakeem claims that I have included information about Yusuf Estes’ every move, every five minutes, and that he has gone to the bathroom at such-and-such time. This is a clear lie. Those around him should advise him to be honest and stop lying. And it was the worst kind of lie, one to make the people laugh. In Sunan Abee Daawood there is a hadeeth that means, “Woe to him, woe to him, woe to the one who lies to make the people laugh.”

Not only was it a clear lie to make people laugh, but laugh at what? An issue that is a central point of belief in Islam, one that identifies a Muslim from a kaafir.

The original clarification that – by Allaah’s Permission – has corrected the aqeedah of many Muslims, including Yusuf Estes himself (to some degree, whether he admits it or not), and many of his dedicated followers:

Shaikh Khaalid Ad-Dhufayri Replies To A Doubt of the people of Innovation

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

A refutation of a doubt spread by the people of (religious) innovations who say: “Take the truth and leave the falsehood from the statements and the books of people of (religious) innovations!”

Sheikh Khâlid Dahwî Ad-Dufayrî refutes this doubt by saying:

“And from the means to be safe from tribulations is to keep away from the people of (religious) innovations, to be cautious of them and to warn against them. This is a salafi foundation stated by the people of knowledge and it has been indicated by the Qurân, the Sunnah and by the statements of the pious predecessors: the Companions, their successors and others.

The people of knowledge agree upon leaving people of (religious) innovations and keeping away from them and this consensus has been reported by many scholars.

They all agree upon keeping away from the people of (religious) innovations and not to read their books nor look into them, except for the one who[1] wants to refute them. As for the general people then they should not read nor listen to anything except from the people of knowledge and they should keep away from the people of desires; they listen to people of Sunnah and keep away from people of (religious) innovations and we do not utter that misguided and innovated rule which is: “Take the truth and leave the falsehood”.

There is no doubt that we have been commanded to take the truth and to leave the falsehood but we have not been commanded to seek the truth from the people of (religious) innovations and people of desires!

We take the truth from the pure sources and we take it from the place where there is neither doubt nor any (religious) innovation!
