Part 4: Ali Halabi’s Long Journey (may Allaah guide him)

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

Abul Wafaa Ibnu Aqeel (rahimahullaah) said: ”Whoever pronounces his creed based upon proofs, then unsteadiness will not remain with him due to the differences of opinion regarding the state of affairs of men.’’


Ali Halabi (The Innovator) and the Fitnah of Abul Hasan Al-Maribi (The Innovator)

Between pages 20-25 in Arabic PDF (revised and read by Al-Allaamah Rabee Bin Haadee al-Madkhalee), the author discusses the Fitnah of Abul Hasan Al-Maribi and the two facedness of Ali Halabi during the Fitnah, which finally led him to deviation. So we will abridge and paraphrase the discussion. For further details download PDF here: http://www.sahab.net/forums/index.php?showtopic=122127

There came about the fitnah of Al-Maribi and his innovations in opposition to the methodology of the Salafus Saaleh (i.e. the pious predecessors). However, before the Fitnah of Al-Maribi became manifested, there were observations on his book titled [Siraaj Al-Wahhaaj], and this took place during the lifetime of the three Imaams [Abdul Azeez Bin Baaz, Muhammad Nasiruddeen Al-Albaanee and Muhammad Bin Saaleh Al-Uthaymeen (rahimahumullaah)].  

Al-Maribi was already promoting his innovations on the subject matter of passing judgments against deviated individuals and the position towards those in opposition to the Book, The Sunnah and understanding of the pious predecessors.  He wished to make this book of his a methodology for the salafis in this time, so he embark upon seeking the recommendations of the major scholars, especially from Imaam Abdul Azeez Bin Baaz (rahimahullaah). Imaam Bin Baaz (rahimahullaah) passed the book to the present Mufti Al-Allaamah Abdul Azeez Aala Shaikh (hafidha-hullaah) who carried out his observations on the book and referred them back to Imaam Bin Baaz (rahimahullaah). However, Imaam Bin Baaz (rahimahullaah) passed away and Abul Hasan did not obtain what he wanted. Indeed Allaah has full control and power over His Affairs.

Indeed, it was Al-Maribi who kindled the fitnah between the salafis after the fitnah of Adnaan Ar’oor. He intended by way of his book a warning against the methodology of Al-Allaamah Rabee Bin Haadee Al-Madkhalee (hafidha-hullaah), which he described as excessive. The evidence showing Al-Maribi as the initiator of the Fitnah is due to the fact that he defended the people of falsehood and innovations in his book, especially the leaders of Ikhwaan Al-Muslimeen, which he titled: A defense of the people of Ittibaa [i.e. a defense of the people who follow the correct path of the Qur’aan and the Sunnah].

Al-Maribi himself said that he rejected/disapproved the methodology of Shaikh Rabee in his book Siraaj al-Wahhaaj few years ago before the clear and final manifestation of his differences with Shaikh Rabee, and that this book of his was written in the year 1418AH and has been reprinted thrice.  Al-Maribi also acknowledged that Shaikh Rabee did refute him in his Book titled: ”Intiqaad Aqadee Alaa Siraaj Al-Wahhaaj, and that Shaikh Rabee himself said: ”Indeed, when I received the book (Siraaj Al-Wahhaaj), I knew that he (Al-Maribi) intended me (i.e. a warning against me in a number of descriptions in relation to extremism, which he said I fell into.”

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

[Adnaan Ar’oor and Muhammad Al-Maghraawi]

Discussion in pages 16-20 in the Arabic PDF. Download PDF here:


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.

Ali Halabi Before and After the Death of Imaam Al-Albaanee (rahimahullaah)

In this section we will quote directly from the author and in other places where the discussion is lengthy, we will paraphrase.

The author said:

‘’During the lifetime of the Mujad-did of the era Imaam Al-lbaanee (rahimahullaah), Ali Halabi was a caller to the Sunnah alongside his brothers from Ahlus Sunnah and an opponent of innovation and its people. He used to wage war against hizbiyyah, warned against its paths and consequences. He used to wage war against Takfeer and the Manhaj of the Qutubiyyoon. He used to wage war against those who spoke ill of the scholars and the Salafi Mashaa-yikh. He used to wage war against the activists and people of politics. [political activists: http://www.spubs.com/sps/downloads/pdf/MNJ130030.pdf]

He used to wage war against the innovated views and calls, and he was manifest in warning against the Mukhaalifoon (those who hold affairs that are in opposition to the book, the Sunnah, the ijmaa and correct positions), the groups and individuals; and he particularized them when making a mention of them. He aided the (sound) fundamental principles of Ahlus Sunnah and nullified the (corrupt) principles of the various innovators. There is no doubt that this is from that which Halabi benefitted in his sittings with Shaikh Al-Albaanee (rahimahullaah), as it is not hidden from anyone regarding Shaikh Al-Albaanee’s state of affairs with the Mukhaalifeen.’’[end of quote]

Lengthy Discussion [paraphrased and abridged]

Before the death of Shaikh Al-Albaanee (rahimahullaah), a guy by the name of Muhammad Abu Raheem kindled a Fitnah with regards to the issue of Imaan and disbelief amongst the salafis. He relied upon the well- known Qutubi Safar Al-Hawaalee and his book Dhaahiratul Irjaa Fee Fikr Al-Islaamiy. This Muhammad Abu Raheem began directing his attacks at Ali Halabi and there came about refutations from both parties against one another. When the affair reached Shaikh Al-Albaanee, he declared Muhammad Abu Raheem wrong and Ali Halabi correct. So Muhammad Abu Raaheem turned on Shaikh Al-Albaanee and accused him of Irjaa using the Qutbi Safar Al-Hawaalee as proof. However, Muhammad Abu Raheem was brought down on his feet and was lowered in the eyes of the salafi.  [See the following links for the verdicts of the scholars against Salmaan and Safar: [http://www.salafipublications.com/sps/sp.cfm?subsecID=NDV12&articleID=GRV070001&articlePages=1][http://www.spubs.com/sps/downloads/pdf/NDV120006.pdf]

At first Ali Halabi did not speak in detail in the subject matter of Eemaan, because whenever false accusations reached Shaikh Al-Albaanee that he (i.e. Al-Albaanee) has fallen to irjaa, he would explain and detail the affair.  [See following links: The scholars free Al-Albaanee from Irjaa]http://www.salafipublications.com/sps/downloads/pdf/MSC060021.pdf] http://www.salafipublications.com/sps/downloads/pdf/MSC060017.pdf

Ali Halabi Enters into the Discussion of the Subject Matter of Eemaan

Ali Halabi agreed with the book of Muraad Shukri which was against Takfeer, but also contained mistakes in the subject matter of Eemaan and kufr [see page: 12 on this PDF]. So when Mourad Shukri’s book reached the Committee of Major Scholars in the leadership of the Mufti of the Era Shaikh Abdul Azeez Bin Baaz (rahimahullaah), the Committee passed a verdict against the book that it aided the school of thought of Irjaa and warned against the book and its author. This left Halabi in a state of great bewilderment due to his agreement with the author, and actually on the cover of the book, it was written:[Read, revised and approved for printing by Shaikh Ali Al-Halabi], but on the other hand he had to acknowledge the truth of that which the Committee of Major scholars pronounced. And at the time, Halabi stated in [Majallah Al-Furqaan Number 101]: ‘’The book (i.e. Mourad Shukri’s Book) was expressed in the author’s views, based on what he carried out of research and what was evident to him.’’ Halabi made these remarks despite the fact that he did revise and approve its printing without clarifying any errors in it.  However, Halabi’s final statement on the affair was that of recantation; he said: ‘’And Indeed I praise Allaah and for His bestowal Tawfeeq, that I free myself from the least and all of that, in agreement with the scholars of Islaam and the distinguished Imaams. And with regards to that which I erred or (that which) was not clear to me in something of its affair, in this subject matter and other than it, then indeed I recant from it (i.e. from such errors), returning to what is correct (whilst) neither (harbouring) pride nor doubt.’’ [See page: 13 in the PDF]

Thorns that do but Perforate

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم
الحمد لله و الصلاة و السلام على رسول الله و بعد
This compilation of articles entitled “Thorns that do but Perforate” is a collection of the statements of our noble scholars clarifying aspects of the methodology of the Salaf in dealing with innovators and false methodologies, aspects that have become confused and – on occasion – somewhat purposefully distorted by those who follow desires rather than evidences.
From amongst the techniques employed by the likes of certain associate/s of Madeenah.com and their affiliates is to divert attention away from such principles through promoting selective statements from the scholars relating to “busying yourself with knowledge”, and “leave asking about this one and that one”; statements that are accurate and in fact perfectly sound advice that we are accustomed to from our scholars, however such statements are employed in a deceptive manner by these wayward individuals in portraying a false methodology, and then upon complete audacity attributing this methodology to the scholars[!].
We therefore provide to the reader a compilation of statements from our noble scholars relating to the affair of innovators and the correct stance toward them – from amongst the same scholars certain Madeenah.com members will claim do not engage themselves in such affairs and instead advise the people to “busy yourself with knowledge”, a deceptive ploy intended to divert attention away from the advice and warnings of the scholars against the people of innovation and desires….perhaps the same people of innovation and desires certain Madeenah.com member/s promote and do not clarify their state for agendas and objectives they desire.
We ask Allah to guide these individuals, and pray that they may rectify their path.
