Refutations of Ahlus Sunnah – Shaykh Ubayd Al-Jābirī

Refutations of Ahlus Sunnah – Shaykh Ubayd Al-Jābirī

Ahlus Sunnah, their refutations are knowledge based, their refutations are knowledge based (repeated for emphasis), with evidences (which are followed i.e. authentic and relevant) to clarify the truth. And refutation of falsehood (is done) with evidences so that they are left and avoided.

Do you understand this?

These are your principles.


Shaykh Ubayds commentary on his explanation of Book of ‘Itisaam from Sahih Al-Bukhari, 2nd lesson: 15th November 2017

People Negligent Regarding Aqīdah are Two Types – Shaykh Ubayd

Shaykh Ubayd al-Jābirī explained regarding the one who is easy going and negligent regarding Aqīdah, he is one of two types [of people and] there is no third:

1. An ignorant man. He is not acquainted with the call to the path of Allaah based on clear sightedness, [rather] he follows every Tom, Dick and Harry.

2. An evil man- person of desires, an innovator and misguided person. He knows that as long as the Creed of Tawheed and Sunnah is strong amongst its people, he cannot approach them [with misguidance], rather he approaches them [with misguidance] when their souls become weak.

This type of person firstly manifests beautified expressions and general statements to show that he adheres to the correct Aqīdah and Dawah, so that the hearts of the people become inclined towards him, he wins their trust and gets a strong position amongst them.

Afterwards, he wraps himself around them like a snake that wraps [itself] around its prey, then he releases – amongst them – the flame of bidah and newly invented affairs (in creed, acts of worship or both), and in most cases only a few of his followers free themselves from him.

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

Shaykh Ubayd al-Jābirī (hafidahullah):

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

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

“Mix Not Truth with Falsehood” – Ibn Al Qayim

Allaah (The Most High) said:

وَلَا تَلْبِسُوا الْحَقَّ بِالْبَاطِلِ وَتَكْتُمُوا الْحَقَّ وَأَنتُمْ تَعْلَمُونَ

And mix not truth with falsehood, nor conceal the truth while you know (the truth). [2:42]

Imaam Ibnul Qayyim (rahimahullaah) said: Allaah forbade (us) from mixing truth with falsehood, and thus leading to concealment of the truth. Mixing truth with false is by mixing the two until one of them is confused for the other. This is forgery and deceit by way of which what is made apparent is the opposite of what it is in reality. Likewise, when truth is confounded with falsehood, the culprit manifests falsehood in the image of truth and speaks with a statement that carries two meanings- a correct meaning and false meaning, so the listener is under the illusion that the speaker intends the correct meaning, whilst he (i.e. the speaker) intends the corrupt meaning.

Shaykh Fawzaan: These are all lies!

Questioner:

 

Is has been said O’ Shaykh that you have spoken about the matter of Irjaa and we have heard that the Permanent Committee have retrieved their criticism of the book by al-Halabee and ash-Shuk’ree. And it is said that al-Halabee come to visit the Committee and pointed the mistakes in their criticism. So is this true?”

 

Shaykh Saalih al-Fawzaan:

 

These are all lies. The Committee did not retrieve anything and by the permission of Allah, the Committee will never retreat from clarifying the truth and falsehood. Nobody came to visit the Committee. The Committee doesn’t ever retreat from the truth. It is he who should retreat from the falsehood and repent to Allah.

Students And Refutations – Shaikh Ahmad As-Subay’ee

Question: Shaikh, I have a question concerning the issue of refuting the one who has erred. Is it incumbent upon the student of knowledge or the well-grounded student of knowledge to refer back to the scholar or senior scholars before warning against a specific individual, hizbee group/organization or innovators (in general)? Does he have to refer back to the scholar before warning?

Answer: Shaikh Rabee’ (may Allah Preserve him) was asked about this and his answer can be found on Sahab (i.e. http://www.Sahab.net) and perhaps you know of it. So he was asked about this issue, and he answered it and his answer was correct. This issue is not one (meaning it’s not the same across the board and in every situation). There are issues that are obvious, clear, and apparent of which the student of knowledge could clarify if he has the ability to do so; so one aspect would be linked to one who’s disapproving and clarifying level of knowledge, another to his ability and another to his resolve to be patient upon enduring harms. Another consideration would be his contemplation on the specific positive and negative ramifications which would necessitate decisive and specific actions, statements and judgments. So contemplation on the benefits and harms which (would translate into) direct and decisive action (is required); this would be established by the refutation or the one making the refutation. Especially, if the issue is a knowledge-based issue that the people of knowledge have already spoken about. In this case, there would be nothing preventing (the student of knowledge from boycotting and warning). Boycotting and warning are taken from the Islaamic legislation (i.e. from the Sharee’ah). [end of quote]

The following is a question raised to our noble shaikh Ahmad an-Najmy رحمه الله concerning the role students of knowledge play in clarifying the truth:

إذا فيجب على طلاب العلم أصحاب المعرفة ، الذين عرفوا المنهج السلفي ، وعرفوا المناهج الأخرى ، يجب عليهم أن يبينوا لغيرهم ، وأن يقولوا ،وأن يتكلموا ، وأن يلقوا الخطب ، وأن يوضّحوا في كل مقام ،وفي كل مناسبة الحق ،الذي يجب أن يتّبع والباطل الذي يجب أن يترك ، ويجتنب ، أما الذين سكتوا عن بيان الحق للناس ، فإنهم لا يعذرون بسكوتهم ، ولو قالوا : نحن لسنا معهم ، فإنهم لا يعذرون ، حتى ولو قالوا : نحن لسنا مع أهل هذه الأحزاب الضّالة عن طريق الحق ، إلا أن ينكروا ماهم عليه من الضلال .

“Therefore, it is binding upon the students of knowledge – the people of understanding – the ones who know the salafi methodology, and they know concerning the other methodologies, it is binding upon them to clarify to others, and that they state and speak and deliver sermons (khutba) and that they clarify in every situation and at every suitable opportunity the truth, the truth which is binding to be followed and the falsehood that is binding to be abandoned and avoided. As for those who are silent upon clarifying the truth to the people then they are not excused due to their silence and even if they say “we are not with them” (i.e the hizbiyyoon, as is apparent upon reading the text of the full question which relates to the groups). So they are not excused even if they say “we are not with the people of these misguided groups from the truth, except that they reject and rebut that which they (the misguided groups) are upon in terms of misguidance)”.
