Catastrophe of Logic: A Series of Questions to Masjid as Sunnah

All praise is to Allaah, we seek His help and His forgiveness. We seek refuge with Allaah from the evil of our own souls and from our bad deeds. Whomsoever Allaah guides will never be led astray, and whosoever Allaah leads astray, no one can guide. We bear witness that there is no god but Allaah, the One, having no partner. And we bear witness that Muhammad is His slave and final Messenger.

Correcting the statement “We Correct the People of Innovation but don’t Disparage Them”- Shaykh Bin Baaz & Others

Many people who wish to blur the lines between the people of sunnah and people of bid’ah (innovation and misguidance) make the statement “We should correct the people of innovation and desires only. We shouldn’t be too harsh, revile, boycott or criticism them.”

They intend by this, that the person of Sunnah lowers his guard against innovation, making them susceptible to absorbing doubts and innovation and corrupting his religion. Below are a few statements from the scholars addressing this doubt.

Shaykh Ibn Baz (rahimahullaah):

 “Indeed, criticism from the scholars and disparagement of him whose disparagement is obligatory is from the angle of sincere advice to the Ummah, and warning from his innovation or his deviation is a designated matter, just as the scholars of Islaam have done previously and continue to do so…”

Shaykh Ibn Uthaymeen (rahimahullaah) was asked regarding the errors of Ahl al-Bid’ah, “We correct but do not disparage”, so he replied,

 “This is an error, rather we disparage the one who is stubborn against the truth.” And he said, “When the opposition is in the issues of belief, then it is obligatory for it to be corrected, and whatever is in opposition to the way of the Salaf, then it is obligatory to show rejection against it and to warn against the one who traverses upon that which opposes the way of the Salaf in this field.”

Shaykh al-Fawzan (hafidhahullaah) was asked about the principle, “We correct but do not disparage”, he responded,

“This principle has no basis, I say this principle has no foundation, it is binding to disparage the people of falsehood.”

And he was asked about the principle, “It is permissible to declare as erroneous but is unlawful to revile.”

So he responded,

 “This is just like (the principle) “we correct but do not disparage, it is the very same!”

Shaykh Zayd al-Madkhalee (hafidhahullaah) was asked about the principle, “We correct but do not disparage”, he responded,

“This principle is not from the principles of the Rabbaani Scholars, those whose knowledge is relied upon. Rather, the principles of the Scholars knowledgeable of the purified legislation of Allah, both previously and in what continues is correction of that which is deserving of correction and appraisal of the one who is deserving of appraisal and disparagement of the one is deserving of disparagement in lit of the principles connected to this serious topic. This is what Ahl as-Sunnah wal-Jamaa’ah, the Righteous Salaf and their followers traverse upon until the Day of Judgement, and the books of al-Jarh wat-Ta’deel are not remote for (our) minds. Further, this principle contains deception of those whose knowledge of the legislation and its avenues is scant… And this is an error and the person in question is either ignorant, so it is obligatory to seek knowledge truthfully or he is a deceiver and one who is misguided the people, so Allaah is sufficient (over him) and we ask Allaah to guide him and return him to the truth with a beautiful return, aameen.”

Ali Halabi’s Unsteady Stance towards Passing Judgments on Individuals and Deviants

[Adnaan Ar’oor and Muhammad Al-Maghraawi]

Before the death of the three Mashaa-yikh [i.e. Imaam Bin Baaz, Imaam Al-Albaanee and Imaam Muhammad Ibn Uthaymeen(rahimahumullaah)], Adnaan Ar’oor together with his companion Ahmad Sallaam newly invented a number of principles and fundamentals in the affair of passing judgements against individuals and the manner of dealing with the Mukhaalifoon. And for that reason, they embarked upon a number of seminars and study sessions in order to attract the salafi youth in Britain and other than it, and they called them to accept those false principles.

In their gatherings, they raised objections against Shaikh Rabee’s methodology of criticism, refutation, his stances towards the one in opposition and in the science Jarh Wat-Tadeel. They warned the youth against the methodology which they described as extreme, excessive harshness and defamation. They defended Sayyid Qutb and portrayed him to the youth as one of the best amongst those who spoke in the (affairs) of Manhaj. Shaikh Rabee opposed them and clarified the corruption of their principles and methodology and the falsity of their fundamentals and what they advocated. So they were infuriated and announced a fierce battle against Shaikh Rabee. This affair was the beginning of the Fitnah of these people and not what some think due to ignorance and deceit, that it was Shaikh Rabee who initiated the Fitnah and war with these ones.

And through a number of deceptive ways, Adnaan Ar’oor attempted to obtain the statements of the three Mashaa-yikh (Imaam Bin Baaz, Imaam Al-Albaanee and Imaam Ibn Uthaymeen) to support his falsehood and dispraise the methodology Shaikh Rabee was defending. He (Adnaan) did not reach what he wanted, because the scholars realised his plots and tricks.

And it was transmitted in a statement of Imaad Taariq Al-Iraaqee in the internet forum Kullu As-Salafiyyeen, which is under Ali Halabi’s supervision: [The Stance of our Imaam Al-Albaanee Towards Shaikh Rabee Al-Madkhali’s Refutation Against Adnaan Ar’oor, transmitted by our shaikh Ali Al-Halabi]; Imaad said: I came across a section from the speech of our Shaikh Al-Halabi in which he transmitted the stance of Shaikh Al-Albaanee towards Shaikh Rabee’s reproach against Adnaan, that when I (Ali Halabi) mentioned some of Shaikh Rabee’s proofs against Adnaan to Shaikh Al-Albaanee and Adnaan reply, he (i.e. Shaikh Al-Albaanee) said: These affairs are true, it is incumbent upon Adnaan to reply to them with clarity, and abstract speech is not enough or merely saying this is general and that is detailed and this is all inclusive and that is specific and so on, this neither rectifies nor is it of benefit in the likes of this affair.

The Reality of Philosophy – ibn Taymiyyah

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

 

Sheikhul Islaam Ibn Taymiyyah (rahimahullaah) said:

”Philosophical logic is like the flesh of a camel at the top of a mountain. It is not easy to climb the mountain, nor is the flesh good enough to justify climbing, nor is the path leading to it easy to follow.’’   He (rahimahullaah) also said: ”There are no philosophers upon right guidance”  He (rahimahullaah) also said: ‘’Islaam does not have philosophers’’[1]

The Correct Belief About Yajooj Wa Majooj [Gog And Magog]

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

Taariq Suwaydaan’s False Belief on Gog and Magog

Taariq Suwaydaan said: ”Despite (the) many narrations, there is not to be found an authentic evidence-neither with myself nor other than me- with regards to who Gog and Magog are precisely; but looking at the ahaadith about them and their description, it has become clear to me–and Allah knows best– that they are the people of China.’’

Shaikh Ahmad At-Tuwayjiree replied to Suwaydaan saying:

”This is the likes of what Taariq Suwaydaan stated that Gog and Magog are the people of China. The statement that Gog and Magog are the people of China is a statement that is in opposition to the evidences in the Kitaab and the Sunnah, and it is a mockery of the Aqeedah of pious predecessors. And before I begin refuting this corrupt statement O noble reader, I will begin with an introduction pertaining to the Aqeedah of Ahlus Sunnah Wal Jamaa-ah regarding Gog and Magog.  Allaah (subhaanah) said:

”Until when he reached between two mountains, he found, before (near) them (those two mountains), a people who scarcely understood a word. They said: O Dhul-Qarnain! Verily Gog and Magog are doing great mischief in the land. Shall we then pay you a tribute in order that you might erect a barrier between us and them? He said: That (wealth, authority and power) in which my Lord established me is better (than your tribute). So help me with strength (of men), I will erect between you and them a barrier. Give me pieces of (blocks) of iron; then, when he had filled up the gap between the two mountain-cliffs, he said: Blow; then when he had made them (red as) fire, he said: Bring me molten copper to pour over them. So they (Gog and Magog) could not scale it or dig through it. (Dhul-Qarnain) said: This is a mercy from my Lord, but when the Promise of my Lord comes, He shall level it down to the ground. And the Promise of my Lord is ever true. And on that day (i.e. the day Gog and Magog) will come out, We shall leave them to surge like waves on one another; and the Trumpet will be blown, and We shall collect them (the creatures) all together” Qur’aan 18:93-99

And Allaah (subhaanah) also said:

”Until when Gog and Magog are let loose (from their barrier), and they swoop down from every mound. And the true promise (Day of Resurrection) shall draw near (of fulfilment). Then (when mankind is resurrected from their graves), you shall see the eyes of the disbelievers fixedly staring in horror. (They will say): Woe to us! We were indeed heedless of this-nay, but we were (polytheists and wrong-doers)” Qur’aan (21:96-97)

So these two places in the Book of Allaah show clear evidences regarding the appearance of Gog and Magog before the establishment of The Hour; and their appearance is from the signs of the Hour before its establishment. There is to be found in the Sunnah many narrations showing, making it clear and clarifying this (affair). Amongst these evidences is the hadeeth of Hudhaifah bin Usayd Al Ghaf-faaree (radiyallaahu anhu) in (saheeh Muslim No: 4/2225) (Abu Dawood 4/115)

Hudhaifah bin Usayd said, ”We were sitting in the shade of the chamber of the Prophet (sallal-laahu alayhi wasallam) discussing, and he said, what are you discussing? They said, we are talking about the Hour. He (sallal-laahu alayhi wasallam) said: The Last Hour will not come until there appear ten signs before it: the Smoke, the appearance of ad-Daj-jaal, the Beast, the rising of the sun in its place of setting, the coming forth of the descent of Eesaa the son of Maryam, the appearance of Gog and Magog, and the three Subsidences, (one in the West, one in the East, and one in the Arabian Peninsula), and at the end a fire will issue forth from the Yemen and drive the people to their place of assembly. (Abu Daawood 4/115)

After quoting few more ahaadith, Sheikh Ahmad At-Tuwayjiree then stated on page 12…

Indeed this statement that Gog and Magog are the people of China is in opposition to what is firmly established in the texts that their appearance is NOT TO BE until after the descent of Eesaa, (alayhis salaam), and after the killing of Daj-jaal. It is also established in the texts that (Gog and Magog) will not live except for a short time after their appearance, and the people of China HAVE BEEN UPON THE STATE THEY ARE IN AT PRESENT FOR LONG PERIODS.

Indeed, the saying that Gog and Magog are the people of China is in opposition to that which Allaah (Jalla-Wa-Alaa) has stated in relation to what He (Jalla-Wa-Alaa) informed (us) about Dhul Qarnain, that he (Dhul Qarnain) constructed a huge IRON BARRIER between Gog and Magog and the people; and that they (Gog and Magog) are not able to penetrate it up until the coming close of the Hour. Also the statement of Taariq Suwaydaan that Gog and Magog are the people of China is against what As-Saadiq Al Masdooq (Muhammad- sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam) has stated, that Gog and Magog excavate everyday (to make a hole through the barrier) till they are about to see the rays of the sun, then the one in charge of authority over them would say, ‘’Go back; we will dig it tomorrow.’’ Then Allaah makes it as strong as it was till Allaah intends to send them upon the people, when they will dig it till they see the rays of the sun and the one in authority over them would say, ‘’Go back we will dig it tomorrow if Allaah wills and they will say, ‘’if Allaah wills.’’ They will return to it and will find it in the same condition they left it. They will dig and come out to the people and drink the whole water and people will fortify themselves in their forts against them.

Sheikh Ahmad states after relating this narration:  And this is not what takes place with the people of China, rather they move when they wish and to any place as they wish. There is neither a barrier preventing (them) nor a blockage restraining (them).
