Part 4:: Brief Rebuttal Against Ed Husain: [Former Member of The Khaarijites of Hizb at Tahreer, Promoter of Heretical Philosophers at Present and Self-Appointed Advocator of Interfaith Harmony]

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

Why Is Ed Husain Rebutted

Muhammad Ed Husain – misguided former Tahreeri and at present a Promoter of heretical philosophers and Self-appointed Advocator of Interfaith Harmony – said:

Firstly, Mr Husain’s above statement is very ambiguous, but this is expected from ahlul bidah, especially at the so called Think Tank Quilliam Foundation – a people who speak about the Deen of Allaah based on conjecture and are associated with Mr Husain, an ex-member of the khaarijites of Hizb at – Tahreer, who is now a promoter of heretical philosophers. [see here: https://salaficentre.com/2020/09/24/1-brief-rebuttal-against-muhammad-ed-husain-at-the-so-called-think-tank-quilliam-foundation-a-former-member-of-the-khaarijites-of-hizb-at-tahreeri-and-now-promoter-of-ibn-sina-a-heretic/ ]

Secondly, also based on his above statement regarding similarities between Jews and Muslims, one clearly sees that he is an ignorant self-appointed advocator of interfaith harmony. Indeed, it is incumbent upon him to refrain from speaking if he is unable to give detail and make clear distinctions, just as Imaam Ibnul Qayyim [rahimahullaah] said, “The basis of Banee Aadam’s misguidance is as a result of ‘General Terms’ and ‘Ambiguous Meanings’ [i.e. terms & meanings which can either be utilised for truth or falsehood when not explained in detail and distinguished], especially if they come in contact with a confused mind, then how about when [evil] desires and misguided enthusiasm is added to that? Therefore, ask the One Who keeps the hearts steadfast [i.e. Allaah] to keep your heart firm upon His Religion and not allow you to fall into this darkness”. [Ref 1]

Thirdly, certainly, there are similarities between Jews and Muslims, for example some Jews grow their beards and Muslims are also commanded to grow their beards, even though Ed Husain is clean shaven in the above picture! Indeed, peaceful co-existence is not determined based on similarities shared between Muslims and followers of the abrogated or innovated religions; rather this subject matter revolves around the sound Islamic principles that deal with co-existence, permissible and impermissible alliance. So, here we’ll quote clarifications regarding this affair by Al-Allaamah Saaleh Al-Fawzaan [hafidhahullaah] and Shaikh Abdul Waahid Abu Khadeejah [hafidhahullaah].

Al-Allaamah Saaleh Al-Fawzaan [hafidhahullaah] said:

Indeed, Allaah created [Jinn and humankind] and gave them an innate disposition to recognise Tawheed, obey Him and worship Him alone; but they differed – some of them believed and others disbelieved. Allaah said: [هُوَ ٱلَّذِى خَلَقَكُمۡ فَمِنكُمۡ ڪَافِرٌ۬ وَمِنكُم مُّؤۡمِنٌ۬‌ۚ – He it is Who created you, then some of you are disbelievers and some of you are believers]. [64:2]

Allaah wishes Eemaan and well-being for them, but shaytaan and the callers to evil wish disbelief and evil for them.  Allaah [The Exalted] said:

يُرِيدُ ٱللَّهُ لِيُبَيِّنَ لَكُمۡ وَيَہۡدِيَڪُمۡ سُنَنَ ٱلَّذِينَ مِن قَبۡلِڪُمۡ وَيَتُوبَ عَلَيۡكُمۡ‌ۗ وَٱللَّهُ عَلِيمٌ حَكِيمٌ۬

وَٱللَّهُ يُرِيدُ أَن يَتُوبَ عَلَيۡڪُمۡ وَيُرِيدُ ٱلَّذِينَ يَتَّبِعُونَ ٱلشَّہَوَٲتِ أَن تَمِيلُواْ مَيۡلاً عَظِيمً۬ا

Allaah wishes to make clear (what is lawful and what is unlawful) to you, and to show you the ways of those before you, and accept your repentance, and Allaah is All-Knower, All-Wise.   Allaah wishes to accept your repentance, but those who follow their lusts, wish that you (believers) should deviate tremendously away from the Right Path.’ [4:26-27]

And due to this, Allaah sent the Messengers, revealed the Books and established His Proofs; so, there are those amongst humankind who accept the truth and embrace Eeemaan by choice, and there are those who reject the truth and embrace disbelief by choice. Indeed, Allaah has laid down the differences between the Muminoon and the Kaafiroon in this life and the next, and He forbade that the two groups are made equal.  Allaah [Glorified be He and free is He from all imperfections] has set out recompense and judgment for each of the two groups in this life and the next.  He has given a distinguished name to every group; such as [Mumin – believer], [Kaafir- disbeliever], [Barrun- upright/righteous one], [Faajir – evildoer], [Mushrik- Polytheist], [Muwahhid- Monotheist], [Faasiq- sinner], [Munaafiq- hypocrite], [Mutee’un – an obedient one] and [Aasee- a disobedient one].  And He [Glorified be He and free is He from all imperfections] forbade that equality is made between these differing names and attitudes.  Allaah said:[أَمۡ حَسِبَ ٱلَّذِينَ ٱجۡتَرَحُواْ ٱلسَّيِّـَٔاتِ أَن نَّجۡعَلَهُمۡ كَٱلَّذِينَ ءَامَنُواْ وَعَمِلُواْ ٱلصَّـٰلِحَـٰتِ-Or do those who earn evil deeds think that We shall hold them equal with those who believe (in the Oneness of Allaah Islaamic Monotheism) and do righteous good deeds]. [45:2]

And Allaah said: [ أَمۡ نَجۡعَلُ ٱلَّذِينَ ءَامَنُواْ وَعَمِلُواْ ٱلصَّـٰلِحَـٰتِ كَٱلۡمُفۡسِدِينَ فِى ٱلۡأَرۡضِ أَمۡ نَجۡعَلُ ٱلۡمُتَّقِينَ كَٱلۡفُجَّارِ – Shall We treat those who believe (in the Oneness of Allaah Islaamic Monotheism) and do righteous good deeds, as Mufsidoon (those who associate partners in worship with Allaah and commit crimes) on earth? Or shall We treat the Muttaqoon (the pious ones), as the Fujjaar (criminals, disbelievers, wicked, etc)’ [38:28]- meaning: We have not made them equal because that does not befit Allaah’s Justice.

Should we abandon the words [Kufr, Shirk, Kuffaar and Mushrikeen] found in the Qur’aan, the Sunnah and the Books of Islaamic creed?  This will be a violation of the Book and the Sunnah, and an opposition to Allaah and His Messenger.  By changing the real meanings of the Sharee’ah terms, we will be from those who distort the Book of their Lord and the Sunnah of their Messenger.  Then what defence can be given for [such a deed]- is it to please the Kuffaar?  The disbelievers will never be pleased with us until we abandon our religion.  Allaah [The Exalted] said: [وَلَن تَرۡضَىٰ عَنكَ ٱلۡيَہُودُ وَلَا ٱلنَّصَـٰرَىٰ حَتَّىٰ تَتَّبِعَ مِلَّتَہُمۡ‌ۗ – Never will the Yahood nor the Nasaaraa be pleased with you [O Muhammad Peace be upon him] till you follow their religion]. [2:120]

Allaah said: [ وَدُّواْ لَوۡ تَكۡفُرُونَ كَمَا كَفَرُواْ فَتَكُونُونَ سَوَآءً۬‌ۖ – They wish that you reject Faith, as they have rejected (Faith), and thus that you all become equal (like one another)'[4:89] And if the intention of those who call for the substitution of the sharee’ah terminologies is to show gentleness to the kuffaar and to have good dealings with them, then this cannot be [done] by changing such sharee’ah terminologies; rather it  can only be [done] through what Allaah has legislated regarding their affair.  This comprises of the following affairs:

1.To invite them to Islaam, which is the religion Allaah has ordained for all of humakind.  Allaah said: [ٱدۡعُ إِلَىٰ سَبِيلِ رَبِّكَ بِٱلۡحِكۡمَةِ وَٱلۡمَوۡعِظَةِ ٱلۡحَسَنَةِ‌ۖ وَجَـٰدِلۡهُم بِٱلَّتِى هِىَ أَحۡسَنُ‌ۚ – Invite (mankind, O Muhammad) to the Way of your Lord (i.e. Islaam) with wisdom (i.e. with the Divine Inspiration and the Qur’aan) and fair preaching, and argue with them in a way that is better. [16:125] Therefore, we invite them (to Islaam) for their rectification and happiness in this life and the next.

2.To make peace with them if they seek that.  Allaah said: [وَإِن جَنَحُواْ لِلسَّلۡمِ فَٱجۡنَحۡ لَهَا وَتَوَكَّلۡ عَلَى ٱللَّهِ‌ۚ إِنَّهُ ۥ هُوَ ٱلسَّمِيعُ ٱلۡعَلِيمُ – But if they incline to peace, you also incline to it, and (put your) trust in Allaah.  Verily, He is the All-Hearer, the All-Knower.” [8:61]

Likewise, to make peace with them if the Muslims are in need of making peace, and when there is an overriding benefit for the Muslims in making peace; just as the Prophet (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam) made peace with the kuffaar at Hudaibiyyah.  And by virtue of peace, diplomacy is (established) between them and the Muslims.

3.Not to be hostile towards them without due right.  Allaah said: [وَلَا يَجۡرِمَنَّڪُمۡ شَنَـَٔانُ قَوۡمٍ عَلَىٰٓ أَلَّا تَعۡدِلُواْ‌ۚ ٱعۡدِلُواْ هُوَ أَقۡرَبُ لِلتَّقۡوَىٰ‌ۖ وَٱتَّقُواْ ٱللَّهَ‌ۚ إِنَّ ٱللَّهَ خَبِيرُۢ بِمَا تَعۡمَلُونَ – And let not the enmity and hatred of others make you avoid justice.  Be just: that is nearer to piety, and fear Allaah]. [5:8]

4.To behave well towards those of them who behave well towards the Muslims; those who neither kill nor drive Muslims out of their homes.  Allaah said:

لَّا يَنۡهَٮٰكُمُ ٱللَّهُ عَنِ ٱلَّذِينَ لَمۡ يُقَـٰتِلُوكُمۡ فِى ٱلدِّينِ وَلَمۡ يُخۡرِجُوكُم مِّن دِيَـٰرِكُمۡ أَن تَبَرُّوهُمۡ وَتُقۡسِطُوٓاْ إِلَيۡہِمۡ‌ۚ إِنَّ ٱللَّهَ يُحِبُّ ٱلۡمُقۡسِطِينَ

Allaah does not forbid you to deal justly and kindly with those who fought not against you on account of religion and did not drive you out of your homes. Verily, Allaah loves those who deal with equity. [60:8]

5: To have permissible beneficial dealings with them; in trade, exchange of beneficial information and utilization of the worldly sciences, and things that are of benefit in our lives.

6: To fulfil contacts made with them, and to honour the blood, wealth and rights of the Mu-aahideen (i.e. those none-muslims who have a treaty with the Muslims) because it is binding upon them to (fulfil their covenants with the Muslims) and the Muslims are to (fulfil their covenants with them).   Allaah said: [فَمَا ٱسۡتَقَـٰمُواْ لَكُمۡ فَٱسۡتَقِيمُواْ لَهُمۡ‌ۚ – So long, as they are true to you, stand you true to them]. 9:7

And the ones forbidden to be killed are the Muslim and the Mu’aahid [i.e. the non-Muslim who has a treaty with the Muslims].  And indeed the Prophet said about the killing of a Mu’aahid, “Whoever kills a Mu’aahid will not even smell the fragrance of paradise and its fragrance can be smelled from the distance of forty years away”. [Bukhaari: No: 3166]

And whoever kills a Mu’aahid by mistake, it is as if he has killed a Muslim by mistake.  He must pay blood money as expiation.  Allaah said: [وَإِن ڪَانَ مِن قَوۡمِۭ بَيۡنَڪُمۡ وَبَيۡنَهُم مِّيثَـٰقٌ۬ فَدِيَةٌ۬ مُّسَلَّمَةٌ إِلَىٰٓ أَهۡلِهِۦ وَتَحۡرِيرُ رَقَبَةٍ۬ مُّؤۡمِنَةٍ۬‌ۖ – And if he belonged to a people with whom you have a treaty of mutual alliance, compensation (blood money – Diya) must be paid to his family, and a believing slave must be freed]. [4:92]

And finally, I advise these ones [those who called for a change of the sharee’ah terminologies] to repent to Allaah.  They should not enter into an affair which they have neither mastered nor is it [something] they have specialized in, because that would be tantamount to speaking about Allaah without knowledge. Indeed, Allaah stated: [وَلَا تَقۡفُ مَا لَيۡسَ لَكَ بِهِۦ عِلۡمٌ‌ۚ   – ‘And follow not (O man i.e., say not, or do not or witness not) that of which you have no knowledge].[17:36]

Allaah said: [قُلۡ إِنَّمَا حَرَّمَ رَبِّىَ ٱلۡفَوَٲحِشَ مَا ظَهَرَ مِنۡہَا وَمَا بَطَنَ وَٱلۡإِثۡمَ وَٱلۡبَغۡىَ بِغَيۡرِ ٱلۡحَقِّ وَأَن تُشۡرِكُواْ بِٱللَّهِ مَا لَمۡ يُنَزِّلۡ بِهِۦ سُلۡطَـٰنً۬ا وَأَن تَقُولُواْ عَلَى ٱللَّهِ مَا لَا تَعۡلَمُونَ – ‘Say (O Muhammad): (But) the things that my Lord has indeed forbidden are Al-Fawaahish (great evil sins, every kind of unlawful sexual intercourse) whether committed openly or secretly, sins (of all kinds), unrighteous oppression, joining partners (in worship) with Allaahfor which He has given no authority, and saying things about Allaah of which you have no knowledge]. [7:33]

Allaah placed speaking about Him without knowledge in a level above shirk due to its seriousness. And if it the case that these ones are aware of the subject matter regarding specialist knowledge and that a person cannot enter into that which is not his domain, just as one does not enter into the affair of medicine because it is not his domain, then why do they enter into the affairs of the sharee’ah, rather they enter into the most serious affairs of the sharee’ah, and that is the subject matter of Aqeedah, even though it is something they are not specialised in. I do not desire anything from this [speech] except to give advice and clarification”. [Ref 2]

Ibn Taymiyyah on Participating in the Festivals and Annual Celebrations of the Unbelievers

https://www.abukhadeejah.com/ibn-taymiyyah-on-participating-in-the-annual-celebrations-of-the-unbelievers/

This is the only upright path – the path that has not been distinguished by the misguided callers to the unity of religions. Therefore, Mr Husain – ex Tahreeri and now self-appointed caller to interfaith harmony – should either detail affairs or refrain from speaking as Imaam Ibnul Qayyim [rahimahullaah] said:

“It is obligated on you to give detail and make a distinction, because unrestricted and general [statements] without clarification has indeed corrupted this existence [i.e. the world], and misguided the intellects and views [of the people] in every era”.

Al-Allaamah Saaleh Al-Fawzaan [hafidhahullaah] said:

“There has to be detail explanation. The one who is not proficient in giving detail should keep quiet, because benefit is not acquired from his speech. And every time error occurs, its cause is due to an absence of detail explanation regarding truth and falsehood. There has to be detail explanation and distinction and not to mix up [affairs]. Indeed, it may be that there is something of truth and falsehood in an opponent’s statement, so all of it is neither deemed to be false nor truth; rather there has to be a distinction between its truth and falsehood. All of it is neither rejected nor accepted; rather a distinction is made regarding the truth and what is correct and the falsehood and error in it. And if you are not proficient in giving detail, then you should not enter into this field”. [Ref 3]

Indeed, peaceful co-existence neither warrants unity of religions because all religions have been abrogated besides Islaam, nor participation in anything that has not been legislated in the Sharee’ah of the seal of the Prophets Muhammad [sallal laahu alayhi wasallam]; rather we have been commanded, as Allaah [The Exalted] stated:

 قُلۡ يَـٰٓأَهۡلَ ٱلۡكِتَـٰبِ تَعَالَوۡاْ إِلَىٰ ڪَلِمَةٍ۬ سَوَآءِۭ بَيۡنَنَا وَبَيۡنَكُمۡ أَلَّا نَعۡبُدَ إِلَّا ٱللَّهَ وَلَا نُشۡرِكَ بِهِۦ شَيۡـًٔ۬ا وَلَا يَتَّخِذَ بَعۡضُنَا بَعۡضًا أَرۡبَابً۬ا مِّن دُونِ ٱللَّهِ‌ۚ فَإِن تَوَلَّوۡاْ فَقُولُواْ ٱشۡهَدُواْ بِأَنَّا مُسۡلِمُونَ

Say (O Muhammad): “O people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians): Come to a word that is just between us and you, that we worship none but Allah, and that we associate no partners with Him, and that none of us shall take others as lords besides Allah. Then, if they turn away, say: “Bear witness that we are Muslims.” [Surah Aal Imraan. Aayah 64]

Meaning: say to the people of the scripture – the Jews and Christians, [تَعَالَوۡاْ إِلَىٰ ڪَلِمَةٍ۬ سَوَآءِۭ بَيۡنَنَا وَبَيۡنَكُمۡ – Come to a word that is just between us and you]- Meaning: Come let us unite upon the statement which all the Prophets and Messengers agreed upon and none opposes it, except the obstinate and misguided. This statement is not specific to anyone of us, rather it is something that you and us should establish between us, so this is justice and fairness in debate. Then Allaah explains this and said: [أَلَّا نَعۡبُدَ إِلَّا ٱللَّهَ وَلَا نُشۡرِكَ بِهِۦ شَيۡـًٔ۬ا  –  that we worship none but Allah, and that we associate no partners with Him]- Meaning: We should single out Allaah in worship, devoting all love, fear and hope to Him alone, and we should not associate anyone as partner with Allaah in worship- neither a Prophet, an Angel, a Righteous Person, an Idol, a Deified image, a living or non-living thing, [وَلَا يَتَّخِذَ بَعۡضُنَا بَعۡضًا أَرۡبَابً۬ا مِّن دُونِ ٱللَّهِ‌ۚ  – and that none of us shall take others as lords besides Allaah]; rather all obedience is to be devoted to Allah and His Messengers. [فَإِن تَوَلَّوۡاْ فَقُولُواْ ٱشۡهَدُواْ بِأَنَّا مُسۡلِمُونَ – Then, if they turn away, say: “Bear witness that we are Muslims]. [Ref 4]

Indeed, we live peacefully with the Jews, Christians and others, but their disbelief and misguidance is established – neither can it be obscured by similarities nor Ed Husain’s ambiguous statements. Certainly, the Messiah Eesaa [Jesus (alayhis salaam)] was a Jew, but neither will this benefit those Jews who rejected him nor will it benefit those Christians who substituted his religion with Shirk. Shaikhul Islaam Ibn Taymiyyah [rahimahullaah] said:

And when it is case that the true followers of the Prophets [peace and blessings of Allaah be upon them] are people of knowledge and justice, therefore the speech of the people of Islaam and the true adherents to the Prophetic Sunnah regarding the unbelievers and the proponents of religious innovations has to be based on knowledge and justice, and not conjecture and what the soul desires. And due to this the Prophet [peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him] said: “The judges are three: one will go to Paradise and two to Hell. A man who knows the truth and judges with it will enter paradise; a man who knows the truth but judges with the opposite of it will enter the fire, and a man who judges for the people based on ignorance will enter the fire’’. [Reported by Imaam Abu Dawud 3573]

And when it is the case that the one who judges between the people in [affairs] of wealth, blood [i.e. murder cases, physical violence etc] and honour will enter the hell fire if he is not a just scholar, then how about the one who passes judgements – without knowledge and justice – on creeds, religions, the fundamentals of belief,  divine knowledge and the general fundamental principles related to different subject matters, as is the case with ahlul bidah wal ahwaa [the people of religious innovations and desires]- those who follow the ambiguous doubtful matters, abandon those explicitly clear texts that have transmitted by the Prophets [peace and blessings of Allaah be upon them], cling to affairs that share an ambiguous similarity through mere analogy and opinions,  and then present affairs whose differences can neither be reconciled nor equated, just as is the case with the unbelievers and all the proponents of religious innovation and followers of desires, who liken the creation to the Creator [i.e. they give the creation the Perfect Attributes that only belong to the Creator], and liken the Creator to the creation [i.e. by describing the Creator with the imperfect attributes of the Creation], and then they put forward an evil similitude for Allaah by way of thoughtless and confusing speech. This is because the false religion of the Christians is an innovated [or concocted] religion- innovated after the departure of the Messiah [peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him] and altered the religion of the Messiah through it; so they deviated from the Messiah’s [peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him] path and remained upon that which they innovated.

Then when  Allaah [The Exalted] sent Muhammad [peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him], they disbelieved in him; so their disbelief and misguidance occurred in two way- substitution of the religion of the first Messenger [i.e. the Messiah] and belied the second Messenger [i.e. Muhammad], just as the Jews substituted the rulings of the Torah before the Messiah [peace and blessings of Allah be upon him] was sent and then belied him. The Christians’ denial of the Messengership of Muhammad [peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him] is a well-known belief of theirs to every Muslim, which is similar to the Jews’ disbelief  in the Messiah [peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him]. The Christians emphasise the disbelief of the Jews greater than what the Jews deserve, because the Jews claimed that the Messiah was a magician and a liar; rather they said that he is an illegitimate child, as Allaah informed us about them: [وَقَوۡلِهِمۡ عَلَىٰ مَرۡيَمَ بُہۡتَـٰنًا عَظِيمً۬ا – And their speech against Maryam (Mary)- a grave false charge (that she has committed illegal sexual intercourse]. [Surah An-Nisaa. Aayah 156]; however, the Christians claimed that the Messiah [peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him] is Allaah, so therefore the trial between them and the Jews regarding the Messiah [peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him] involved a lot of contradictions, misguidance at similar levels and confrontation, and this is why both nations rebuked one another with something more than what each of them deserved, just as Allaah said:

وَقَالَتِ ٱلۡيَهُودُ لَيۡسَتِ ٱلنَّصَـٰرَىٰ عَلَىٰ شَىۡءٍ۬ وَقَالَتِ ٱلنَّصَـٰرَىٰ لَيۡسَتِ ٱلۡيَهُودُ عَلَىٰ شَىۡءٍ۬ وَهُمۡ يَتۡلُونَ ٱلۡكِتَـٰبَ‌ۗ كَذَٲلِكَ قَالَ ٱلَّذِينَ لَا يَعۡلَمُونَ مِثۡلَ قَوۡلِهِمۡ‌ۚ فَٱللَّهُ يَحۡكُمُ بَيۡنَهُمۡ يَوۡمَ ٱلۡقِيَـٰمَةِ فِيمَا كَانُواْ فِيهِ يَخۡتَلِفُونَ

The Jews said that the Christians follow nothing; and the Christians said that the Jews follow nothing; though they both recite the Scripture. Like unto their word, said (the pagans) who know not. Allah will judge between them on the Day of Resurrection about that wherein they have been differing. [Surah Al-Baqarah. Aayah 113]

Muhammad Bin Abee Muhammad [rahimahullaah] the protege of Zaid Bin Thaabit [radiyallaahu-anhu] reported from Ikrimah [radiyallaahu-anhu] or Saeed Bi  Jubayr [rahimahullaah], who reported from Ibn Abbaas [radiyallaahu-anhumaa] that when the Christian delegation of Najraan came to the Messenger of Allaah [peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him], the Rabbis came and argued with them in the presence of the Messenger [peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him]; so Rabee bin Hurmilah said, “You are upon nothing”, so he disbelieved in Eesaa [peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him] and all the Injeel”; then a man from the people of Najraan said to the Jews, “You are upon nothing”, so he wilfully denied Moosaa’s [peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him] Prophethood and disbelieved in the Torah, so Allaah revealed:

وَقَالَتِ ٱلۡيَهُودُ لَيۡسَتِ ٱلنَّصَـٰرَىٰ عَلَىٰ شَىۡءٍ۬ وَقَالَتِ ٱلنَّصَـٰرَىٰ لَيۡسَتِ ٱلۡيَهُودُ عَلَىٰ شَىۡءٍ۬ وَهُمۡ يَتۡلُونَ ٱلۡكِتَـٰبَ‌ۗ

The Jews said that the Christians follow nothing; and the Christians said that the Jews follow nothing; though they both recite the Scripture. [Surah Al-Baqarah. Aayah 113]

So each of them recited the affirmation of what they reject in their book- meaning, the Jews disbelieved in Eesaa [peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him] whilst they had the Torah in which Allaah established the evidence against them through Moosaa [peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him] that they should believe in Eesaa [peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him]; and in the Injeel, Eesaa [peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him] confirmed the Messengership of Moosaa [peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him] and what he came with. So, each one disbelieved in what was in the possession of the other. [Ibn Abee Haatim. 1/339]

[وَقَالَتِ ٱلۡيَهُودُ لَيۡسَتِ ٱلنَّصَـٰرَىٰ عَلَىٰ شَىۡءٍ۬  – The Jews said that the Christians follow nothing];  Qataadah [rahimahullaah] said regarding this Aayah, “Certainly, the early Christians were upon something, but they innovated and split”.  [وَقَالَتِ ٱلنَّصَـٰرَىٰ لَيۡسَتِ ٱلۡيَهُودُ عَلَىٰ شَىۡءٍ۬ – and the Christians said that the Jews follow nothing]; Qataadah [rahimahullaah] said regarding this Aayah, “Certainly, the early Jews were upon something, but they innovated and split”.

The Jews belied the religion of the Christians and said that the Christians were upon nothing; and the Christians denied everything through which the Jews were distinguished from them, even the laws of the Torah which the Messiah [peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him] did not abrogate; rather he commanded them to act upon it. As for the Jews, they denied many of things through which others were distinguished from them, until they denied the truth brought by Eesaa [peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him].

So, even though the Christians – due to that which they innovated of exaggeration and misguidance – went into extremes in excommunicating the Jews and showed them enmity beyond what is obligated, however there is no doubt that the Jews disbelieved when they belied the Messiah [peace and blesssings of Allaah be upon him], just as Allaah [The Exalted] said to the Messiah [peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him]:

إِنِّى مُتَوَفِّيكَ وَرَافِعُكَ إِلَىَّ وَمُطَهِّرُكَ مِنَ ٱلَّذِينَ ڪَفَرُواْ وَجَاعِلُ ٱلَّذِينَ ٱتَّبَعُوكَ فَوۡقَ ٱلَّذِينَ كَفَرُوٓاْ

I will take you and raise you to Myself and clear you [of the forged statement that ‘Iesa (Jesus) is Allah’s son] of those who disbelieve, and I will make those who follow you (Monotheists, who worship none but Allah) superior to those who disbelieve [in the Oneness of Allah, or disbelieve in some of His Messengers, e.g. Muhammad, ‘Iesa (Jesus), Musa (Moses), etc., or in His Holy Books, e.g. the Taurat (Torah), the Injeel (Gospel), the Qur’an] till the Day of Resurrection. [Surah Aal Imraan. Aayah 55]

And Allaah [The Exalted] said:

قَالَ عِيسَى ٱبۡنُ مَرۡيَمَ لِلۡحَوَارِيِّـۧنَ مَنۡ أَنصَارِىٓ إِلَى ٱللَّهِ‌ۖ قَالَ ٱلۡحَوَارِيُّونَ نَحۡنُ أَنصَارُ ٱللَّهِ‌ۖ فَـَٔامَنَت طَّآٮِٕفَةٌ۬ مِّنۢ بَنِىٓ إِسۡرَٲٓءِيلَ وَكَفَرَت طَّآٮِٕفَةٌ۬‌ۖ فَأَيَّدۡنَا ٱلَّذِينَ ءَامَنُواْ عَلَىٰ عَدُوِّهِمۡ فَأَصۡبَحُواْ ظَـٰهِرِينَ

Eesaa the son of Maryam said to Al-Hawariun (the disciples): “Who are my helpers (in the Cause) of Allah?” Al-Hawarieen (the disciples) said: “We are Allah’s helpers” (i.e. we will strive in His Cause!). Then a group of the Children of Israel believed and a group disbelieved. So We gave power to those who believed against their enemies, and they became the uppermost. [Surah As-Saff. Aayah 14]

The disbelief of the Christians – due to their denial of Muhammad’s [peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him] Messengership and being in opposition to the Muslims- is greater than the disbelief of the Jews due to their denial of the Messiah’s [peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him] Messengership, because indeed the Messiah [peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him] only abrogated a little from the Torah and all the laws and acts of worship ordained for him could be traced back to the Torah; however the majority of the beliefs and practices of the Christians were innovated after the departure of the Messiah [peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him]. That which is found in the Jews’ denial of the Messiah [peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him] by opposing Allaah’s Sharee’ah is not the same as the Christians’ denial of Muhammad [peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him], who brought an independent book from Allaah, because nothing in the laws of the Qur’aan was ordained based on the law of another Messenger. Allaah [The Exalted] said: [أَوَلَمۡ يَكۡفِهِمۡ أَنَّآ أَنزَلۡنَا عَلَيۡكَ ٱلۡڪِتَـٰبَ يُتۡلَىٰ عَلَيۡهِمۡ‌ۚ إِنَّ فِى ذَٲلِكَ لَرَحۡمَةً۬ وَذِڪۡرَىٰ لِقَوۡمٍ۬ يُؤۡمِنُونَ – Is it not sufficient for them that We have sent down to you the Book (the Qur’an) which is recited to them? Verily, herein is mercy and a reminder (or an admonition) for a people who believe]. [Surah Al-Ankabut. Aayah 51]

The Qur’aan is an independent book like the Torah of Moosaa [peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him], even though the Qur’aan is greater than it. And this is why the  Christian scholars made a connection between Moosaa and Muhammad [peace and blessings of Allaah be upon them], just as when An-Najaashee [may Allaah have mercy upon him]- the (Ethiopian) king of the Christians- heard the Qur’an, he said, “Indeed, this and what Moosaa brought came from the same source”.

Also, when Waqarah bin Nawfil [may Allaah have mercy upon him] – who was one of Christian Arab scholars- heard the statement of the Prophet [peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him], he said, “Indeed, the Naamoos [i.e. Jibreel] came to you, who was sent to Moosaa. I wish I were young till when your people expel you [i.e. from Makkah]”. Allaah’s Messenger [peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him] asked, “Will these people drive me out?” Waraqah [may Allaah have mercy upon him] said, “Yes, for nobody brought the like of what you have brought, but was treated with hostility. If I were to remain alive till your day [when you start calling to Islaam], then I would support you strongly”. [Bukhaari]

And this is why Allaah mentioned the Torah and the Qur’aan together in His statement:

فَلَمَّا جَآءَهُمُ ٱلۡحَقُّ مِنۡ عِندِنَا قَالُواْ لَوۡلَآ أُوتِىَ مِثۡلَ مَآ أُوتِىَ مُوسَىٰٓ‌ۚ أَوَلَمۡ يَڪۡفُرُواْ بِمَآ أُوتِىَ مُوسَىٰ مِن قَبۡلُ‌ۖ قَالُواْ سِحۡرَانِ تَظَـٰهَرَا وَقَالُوٓاْ إِنَّا بِكُلٍّ۬ كَـٰفِرُونَ

قُلۡ فَأۡتُواْ بِكِتَـٰبٍ۬ مِّنۡ عِندِ ٱللَّهِ هُوَ أَهۡدَىٰ مِنۡہُمَآ أَتَّبِعۡهُ إِن ڪُنتُمۡ صَـٰدِقِينَ

But when the truth (i.e. Muhammad with his Message) has come to them from Us, they say: “Why is he not given the like of what was given to Musa (Moses)? Did they not disbelieve in that which was given to Musa (Moses) of old? They say: “Two kinds of magic [the Taurat (Torah) and the Qur’an] each helping the other!” And they say: “Verily! In both we are disbelievers.” Say (to them, O Muhammad): “Then bring a Book from Allah, which is a better guide than these two [the Taurat (Torah) and the Qur’an], that I may follow it, if you are truthful.” [Surah Al-Qasas. Aayaat 48-49]

Allaah did not revealed books that were a better guide than the Tawraat and the Qur’aan. Then Allaah said:

فَإِن لَّمۡ يَسۡتَجِيبُواْ لَكَ فَٱعۡلَمۡ أَنَّمَا يَتَّبِعُونَ أَهۡوَآءَهُمۡ‌ۚ وَمَنۡ أَضَلُّ مِمَّنِ ٱتَّبَعَ هَوَٮٰهُ بِغَيۡرِ هُدً۬ى مِّنَ ٱللَّهِ‌ۚ إِنَّ ٱللَّهَ لَا يَہۡدِى ٱلۡقَوۡمَ ٱلظَّـٰلِمِينَ

But if they answer you not (i.e. do not believe in your doctrine of Islamic Monotheism, nor follow you), then know that they only follow their own lusts. And who is more astray than one who follows his own lusts, without guidance from Allah? Verily! Allah guides not the people who are Zalimun (wrong-doers, disobedient to Allah, and polytheists). [Surah Al-Qasas. Aayah 50] [Ref 5]

Finally, indeed, it is incumbent upon the likes of Muhammad Ed Husain to refrain from speaking in the Deen of Allaah, because just as he was Jaahil and misguided like his companions at Hizb at-Tahreer, likewise he is still misguided and Jaahil whilst promoting heretical philosophers and speaking about interfaith harmony. Indeed, the above clarifications unveils his Jahl!

And Allaah knows best

Our Masjid Committee, Trustees And Attendees Do Not Desire Controversial Issues! [An Ambiguous Statement]

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

Ibn Aqeel [rahimahullaah] said:

“If the truthful ones were to keep silent and the falsifiers speak, then the creation would have relinquished what they have witnessed [of truth] and reject what they have not witnessed.  So when the devout ones desire to revive the Sunnah, the people would reject it and think that it is bidah”. [Ref 1]

Shaikh Rabee Bin Haadi [hafidhahullaah] said:

The trials and doubts are brought forth by Ahlul Bidah Wal Ahwaa [the people of religious innovation and desires]. And the call to Allaah-to the Book of Allaah, adherence to the Book of Allaah and the Sunnah-is the call that will unite all the Ummah. All the trials, splitting and (blameworthy) differing came from the path of the people of falsehood and the people of trials. And they [i.e. the people of baatil and fitan] do not keep quiet- they spread their falsehoods in their newspapers, magazines and audio tapes, while wishing that the voice of truth should be silent. In their view, the voice of truth is what should be silent and the voice of falsehood should be raised and spread in the earth! Do they remain silent?! The people of falsehood do not remain silent-they neither abate nor slow down. They have [ خطط جهنمية -i.e. paths or footsteps leading to the hell fire] which they enforce and thereafter they demand silence from the people of truth!

So they approach the Salafi Manhaj and say to you, “This tear apart! This [causes] splits!” Rather, the Ahwaa [the bidah etc] and the Dalaalaat [affairs of misguidance] are what splits and tears the Ummah apart, which the people of falsehood are ardent in spreading in the internet -at present- and places of falsehood-in the newspapers, magazines and the schools. They spread their falsehood in every place, but the very thing that is difficult for them is to hear the voice of truth! [Ref 2]

Imaam Abdul Azeez Bin Baz-rahimahullaah said: The student of knowledge is very eager not to hide anything he knows.  He is eager to clarify the truth and refute the opponents of the Religion of Islaam.  He is neither lackadaisical nor does he seek to escape.  He is always manifesting due to his endurance.

So when the opponents of Islaam appear with that which obscures and defames Islaam, he brings forth refutation against them by writing, and by word of mouth, and other than that.  He is neither lackadaisical nor does he say, ”these affairs are for other than me”, rather he says, ”it is for me, it is for me”.  Even if there are other scholars, he still fears that the affair will slip away.

So he is constantly salient and does not seek to escape, rather he comes forward at the appropriate time in order to aid the haqq, and refute the opponents of Islaam by writing and other than it…by means of the radio, or the newspapers, or TV, or through any means he can.

He also does not hide what he has of knowledge, rather he writes, gives khutbah and refutes the people of innovation and other than them from the opponents of Islaam, with what Allaah has bestowed upon him of strength, in accordance to his knowledge, and with that which Allaah has made easy for him of various capabilities.  Allaah [The Exalted] said:

إِنَّ الَّذِينَ يَكْتُمُونَ مَا أَنزَلْنَا مِنْ الْبَيِّنَاتِ وَالْهُدَى مِنْ بَعْدِ مَا بَيَّنَّاهُ لِلنَّاسِ فِي الْكِتَابِ أُوْلَئِكَ يَلْعَنُهُمْ اللَّهُ وَيَلْعَنُهُمْ اللاَّعِنُونَ

إِلاَّ الَّذِينَ تَابُوا وَأَصْلَحُوا وَبَيَّنُوا فَأُوْلَئِكَ أَتُوبُ عَلَيْهِمْ وَأَنَا التَّوَّابُ الرَّحِيمُ

Verily, those who conceal the clear proofs, evidences and the guidance, which WE have sent down, after WE have made it clear for the people in the Book, they are the ones cursed by Allaah and cursed by the cursers.  Except those who repent and do righteous deeds, and openly declare (the truth which they concealed).  These, I will accept their repentance.  And I am the One Who accepts repentance, the Most Merciful” (2:159-160) [Ref 3]

Shaikh Shamsuddeen Al-Afghaani [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 authentic 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]. [Ref 4]

False Unity

Question to Shaikh Rabee [hafidhahullaah]: What is your view regarding the statement of the one who says that indeed unity is a fundamental requirement, so if a person comes along to split that unity, it [is] obligatory to reject him, even if it is Tawheed he [propagates]?

Answer: Does Allaah [The Blessed and Exalted] merely intend unity, even if the Rawaafid, khawaarij, the Baatiniyyah, the grave worshippers and their ilk are part of this unity?! Is this the unity commanded by Allaah? Is this the meaning of Allaah’s [The Blessed and Exalted] statement:  وَاعْتَصِمُوا بِحَبْلِ اللَّهِ جَمِيعًا وَلَا تَفَرَّقُوا ۚ – And hold fast, all of you together, to the Rope of Allaah, and be not divided among yourselves]? [Surah Aal Imraan’ Aayah 103]

What is the Rope of Allaah? It is the Qur’aan and [authentic] Sunnah; therefore the bond of Tawheed between you has to be the Book of Allaah. Allaah [The Most High] said:[ إِنَّ هَٰذِهِ أُمَّتُكُمْ أُمَّةً وَاحِدَةً وَأَنَا رَبُّكُمْ فَاعْبُدُونِ – Truly! This, your Ummah is one Ummah, and I am your Lord, therefore worship Me [Alone]. [Surah Al-Anbiyaa’ Aayah 92]

This is the unity that Allaah wants- [unity] upon truth and the revelation- and obligated on us. On the other hand, what do we call these people [i.e. those who want to unite upon divergent beliefs and methodologies]? [They are either] enemies of the Prophets or foolish ignoramuses [who carry] political views that are in opposition to the methodology of the Prophets, the methodology of Muhammad, the Dawah that consolidates unity upon truth and does not split the religion [i.e. into divergent sects], just as Allaah [Glorified and Exalted be He] said: [إِنَّ الَّذِينَ فَرَّقُوا دِينَهُمْ وَكَانُوا شِيَعًا لَّسْتَ مِنْهُمْ فِي شَيْءٍ ۚ إِنَّمَا أَمْرُهُمْ إِلَى اللَّهِ ثُمَّ يُنَبِّئُهُم بِمَا كَانُوا يَفْعَلُونَ – Verily, those who divide their religion and break up into sects [all kinds of religious sects] , you [O Muhammad] have no concern in them in the least. Their affair is only with Allah, Who then will tell them what they used to do]. [Surah Al-An’aam’ Aayah 159]

The sound Dawah [necessitates] that we unite the people upon the Book of Allaah and the [authentic] Sunnah of Allaah’s Messenger [sallal laahu alayhi wasallam], so whoever responds will enter – InshaaAllaah- in the shelter of the saved sect and victorious group, and whoever refuses, then indeed he has chosen to be from the destroyed sects- those whom Allaah’s Messenger [sallal laahu  alayhi wasallam] informed us about; because they [i.e. these sects] refuse to unite under the banner of Tawheed, the Qur’aan and the [authentic] Sunnah, therefore they follow nothing else but the paths which the devils amongst mankind and Jinn call to [Ref 1], and Allaah has not burdened any soul beyond what it can bear.

At present, we experience the end results of these Da’waat [i.e. calls of the deviated sects] on the face of the earth! What is taking place at present in Afghanistan between the people of these calls? What took place after Kabul was liberated [i.e. from the Russians]? Did the people of these calls not start to quarrel and kill one another for sake of position?! At present we’ve seen divisions [amongst the groups], except the Dawah of the Imaam – The Mujaddid – Muhammad Bin Abdil Wahhaab [rahimahullaah]. The [upright] scholars of this Dawah have not differed up to this era – no differing in Manhaj,  Aqeedah or politics has occurred between them, because indeed it is a Dawah based on: “Allaah said and Allaah’s Messenger [sallal laahu alayhi wasallam] said”, however others besides them have become [divergent] groups – Jamaa’atut Takfeer [i.e. the Takfeeri Group], Jamaa’atul Jihaad [i.e. the Jihaadi Takfeeris], groups based on splitting and schism, [the emergence] of group after group, without an end…and one cannot find anything to protect them from splitting, [because] that which will protect [this Ummah] from splitting is the Qur’aan [i.e. sound understanding of the Qur’aan based on the understanding of the Sahaabah] and unity upon that. This is why the affair of the sincere ones has been prolonged and amongst those sincere ones are the people upon the Da’wah of Imaam Muhammad Bin Abdil Wahhaab [rahimahullaah], and you will find the [upright] scholars of this Da’wah upon [true and sound] brotherhood- neither differing in Methodology and Creed nor does politics [i.e. innovated political activity] exist amongst them. [Ref 5]

Shaikh Abdullaah Al-Bukhaari [may Alaah preserve him] said:

And from which the people of knowledge have affirmed is that this religion is established on two affairs: Clarification of the truth and refuting falsehood and its people.  The affirmation of this (affair) becomes manifest to the one who contemplates on the statement of Tawheed [لا إله إلا الله] with clarification and by way of explanation. The saying of the slave (i.e. the Muslim)  لا إله is a refutation against falsehood and its people-those who deify others besides Allaah. And the statement   إلا الله is an affirmation of truth and a clarification of it. And it (means) that Allaah alone has the right to be worshipped and He has no partner. Likewise, the statement محمد رسول الله is an affirmation of the Messengership of the Prophet (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam) and a refutation against the one who gives him a status above that and thus deifies him; or lowers the rank of his Prophethood and Messengership. [Ref 6]

Admonition From The Hadeeth of Hudhaifah: “People Used to Ask The Messenger of Allaah About The Good Times, But I Used to Ask Him About Bad Times…”

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

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

All praise and thanks be to Allaah, Lord of the Aalameen, and may Allaah’s peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family and his companions.  To proceed: Indeed, the hadith that will be addressed – in this lecture – is the hadith of Hudhaifah Bin al Yamaan [radiyallaahu anhu].  He said: ‘’People used to ask the Messenger of Allaah [sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam] about the good times, but I used to ask him about bad times fearing lest they overtake me.  I said, ‘O Messenger of Allaah! We were in a state of pre-Islamic ignorance and evil, and then Allaah brought us this good [time through Islam], is there any evil time after this good one?’ He said, ‘Yes.’ I asked, ‘Will there be a good time again after that evil?’ He said, ‘Yes, but therein will be a hidden evil.’ I asked, ‘What will be the evil hidden therein?’ He said, ‘[That time will witness the rise of] the people who will follow ways other than mine and seek guidance other than mine. You will know [their] good points as well as [their] bad points.’ I asked, ‘Will there be an evil time after this good one?’ He said, ‘Yes. [A time will come] when there will be people standing and inviting at the gates of Hell. Whosoever responds to their call they will throw them into the fire.’ I said, ‘O Messenger of Allaah! Describe them for us.’ He said, ‘They will be a people having the same complexion as ours and speaking our language.’ I said, ‘O Messenger of Allaah! What do you suggest if I happen to live in that time?’ He said, ‘You should stick to the main body of the Muslims and their leader.’ I said, ‘If they have no [such thing as the] main body and have no leader?’ He said, ‘Separate yourself from all these factions, though you may have to eat the roots of trees [in a jungle] until death comes to you and you are in this state.’’’ [Bukhari and Muslim…. The wording of the above is that of Imaam Muslim]

Indeed, Allaah pre-decreed [Ref1] that the creation will be visited by tribulations, trials and tests, in order that the truthful one is distinguished from the hypocrite. Allaah [The Exalted] said:

الٓمٓ

أَحَسِبَ النَّاسُ أَنْ يُتْرَكُوا أَنْ يَقُولُوا آمَنَّا وَهُمْ لَا يُفْتَنُونَ

وَلَقَدْ فَتَنَّا الَّذِينَ مِنْ قَبْلِهِمْ ۖ فَلَيَعْلَمَنَّ اللَّهُ الَّذِينَ صَدَقُوا وَلَيَعْلَمَنَّ الْكَاذِبِينَ

Alif-Laam-Meem. Do people think that they will be left alone because they say: ‘’We believe,’’ and will not be tested. And We indeed tested those who were before them. And Allaah will certainly make (it) known (the truth of) those who are true, and will certainly make (it) known (the falsehood) of those who are liars, (although Allaah knows all that before putting them to test).’’ [Surah Al-Ankabut. Aayaat 1-3]

Fitnah is a test. The human being will not be left alone because he says, ‘’I believe, I submit, I am a Muslim, I am a believer’’; [rather] he will be put to trial. If he exercises patience and firmly holds onto his Eemaan during [times] of tribulations, then indeed he is the one truthful to his Eemaan. If he deviates during [times] of tribulations and turns away from his Religion, then this one is not truthful to his Eemaan.  He is a hypocrite [i.e. depending on the severity of the deviation], as Allaah [The Exalted] said:

وَمِنَ النَّاسِ مَنْ يَقُولُ آمَنَّا بِاللَّهِ وَبِالْيَوْمِ الْآخِرِ وَمَا هُمْ بِمُؤْمِنِينَ

يُخَادِعُونَ اللَّهَ وَالَّذِينَ آمَنُوا وَمَا يَخْدَعُونَ إِلَّا أَنْفُسَهُمْ وَمَا يَشْعُرُونَ

فِي قُلُوبِهِمْ مَرَضٌ فَزَادَهُمُ اللَّهُ مَرَضًا ۖ وَلَهُمْ عَذَابٌ أَلِيمٌ بِمَا كَانُوا يَكْذِبُونَ

‘’And of mankind, there are some (hypocrites) who say: “We believe in Allaah and the Last Day” while in fact they believe not. They (think to) deceive Allaah and those who believe, while they only deceive themselves, and perceive (it) not! In their hearts is a disease (of doubt and hypocrisy) and Allaah has increased their disease. A painful torment is theirs because they used to tell lies.’’ [Surah Al-Baqarah Aayaat 8-10]

This is the Sunnah [Way] of Allaah [The Mighty and Majestic].  Allaah [The Mighty and Majestic] said:

مَا كَانَ اللَّهُ لِيَذَرَ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ عَلَىٰ مَا أَنْتُمْ عَلَيْهِ حَتَّىٰ يَمِيزَ الْخَبِيثَ مِنَ الطَّيِّبِ ۗ وَمَا كَانَ اللَّهُ لِيُطْلِعَكُمْ عَلَى الْغَيْبِ وَلَٰكِنَّ اللَّهَ يَجْتَبِي مِنْ رُسُلِهِ مَنْ يَشَاءُ ۖ فَآمِنُوا بِاللَّهِ وَرُسُلِهِ ۚ وَإِنْ تُؤْمِنُوا وَتَتَّقُوا فَلَكُمْ أَجْرٌ عَظِيمٌ

‘’Allaah will not leave the believers in the state in which you are now, until He distinguishes the wicked from the good. Nor will Allaah disclose to you the secrets of the Ghaib (unseen), but Allaah chooses of His Messengers whom He pleases. So, believe in Allaah and His Messengers. And if you believe and fear Allaah, then for you there is a great reward.’’ [Surah Aal Imraan. Aayah 179]

Allaah allows trials and tests to occur in order to distinguish the truthful one from the liar, the true believer from the hypocritical liar, and the good one from the wicked one. This is part of Allaah’s [perfect] Wisdom.  Trials will come to pass upon the people as a result of this [perfect] Wisdom.  If trials do not occur, then truth will be confounded with falsehood-the believer will be confused for the hypocrite and there will not be a distinction between this one and that one.

In this hadith reported by the honourable companion Hudhaifah Bin Al Yamaan [radiyallaahu-anhu], he said: ”The people used to ask the Messenger of Allaah [sallal-laahu alayhi wa sallam] about the good times.”

They used to ask him [sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam] about the good related to righteous actions, affairs of the correct Islamic creed and dealings, but Hudhaifah used to ask him [sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam] about the evil times fearing lest they overcome him. Therefore, in this is evidence that it is not enough to only learn about the good; rather one must know about the evil in order to avoid it. If you do not know about the evil, you will come close to falling into it, as the poet said: ”I acquaint myself with the evil not for the sake of evil, but to be safeguarded from it. The one who does not know [the distinction between] evil and good will fall into evil.

A person must learn about the truth-its proofs and evidences. He must learn and know what falsehood is and the doubts associated with it, in order that he can be saved from falsehood and warn people against it. How can he avoid and warn people against it if he is unaware of it? And with regards to this, the Qur’aan has clarified truth and falsehood; it has clarified Eemaan and Kufr, Tawheed and Shirk, and Halaal and Haraam. It has not only clarified Tawheed, Halaal and truth; rather it clarified that which is in opposition to them, so that the Muslim can avoid them.

Likewise, the Prophet [sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam]- in his Sunnah- clarified good and evil, truth and falsehood in all affairs of the religion. The scholars [may Allaah have mercy upon them] clarified – in their written works- what Tawheed, Shirk, disbelief and hypocrisy are. They have clarified the belief of Ahlus Sunnah wal Jamaa-ah and the beliefs of the deviated sects, such as the Jahmiyyah, the Mutazilah, the Ashaa-irah…..and other than that.

They have clarified the correct and forbidden [deeds related] to mutual dealings. They have clarified the correct [Islamic] marriage, the false and corrupt marriage and the women forbidden [for one to marry]. They have clarified the [good manners legislated in the sharee’ah] and the evil manners that are in opposition to it. All of this gives the Muslim an insight into his affairs, so that he knows the truth by its evidences, knows what falsehood is and the doubts associated with it, in order that he can avoid falsehood and tell the people avoid it.

This is why you find in the books of belief: clarification of the belief in Tawheed and the belief of Ahlus Sunnah Wal Jamaa-ah, clarification of the beliefs [that are tantamount] to misguidance, the doubts associated with it and refutation against it, in order that the Muslim is not misled by beliefs [that are tantamount to] deviation, false beliefs and deviated schools of thought; and in order that the Muslims can be upon a correct understanding with regards to the affairs of their religion and that which is in opposition to it.

Some of the people at present- the majority of them ignorant ones and amongst them misguided ones- say, “Do not learn about the false beliefs; suffice yourselves with learning the correct belief only and do not involve yourself in seeking to know the beliefs of the people of misguidance and the refutations against their doubts. Leave this and teach the children of the Muslims the correct belief only. Do not inform them about the statements that are in opposition [to the truth], the doubts and refutation against them.”  This one [i.e. the one who makes these statements] is either one of the ignorant people who knows nothing about knowledge or he is one of those motivated by personal desires-those who want to spread the false schools of thought and their doubts; rather it may be that they say, ‘’It is sufficient for a person to say, ‘I am a Muslim; I am a believer….. a general Islaam suffices, do not say, ‘Ahlus Sunnah wal Jamaa-ah, [do not say], ‘the people of misguidance, splitting and differing; do not say this, because it will cause division between the Muslims.’’’

These [statements are tantamount to] misguidance because Allaah [The Mighty and Majestic] has clarified the truth in opposition to falsehood, guidance in opposition to misguidance and Tawheed in opposition to shirk. Allaah [The Mighty and Majestic] has clarified all the affairs of the Religion- a detailed clarification of the affairs related to worship, mutual dealings and manners. Therefore, this must be clarified in order that it is made clear to the people, [and in order] that they can be upon clarity, and so that the true Muslim is distinguished from the so-called Muslim and no deviation and forgery enters into Islaam. We must make a distinction between this and that one, in order that truth is not confounded with falsehood, and [in order] to distinguish between truth and falsehood, and [between] good and wickedness. We do not suffice ourselves with a general Islaam because this is misleading, and it is deception. We warn against this propaganda. The truth must be clarified and distinguished from falsehood, and guidance must be distinguished from misguidance. Hudhaifah [radiyallaahu-anhu] used to ask the Prophet [sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam] about the evil and did not suffice himself by only asking the Prophet about the good. The Prophet affirmed that for him and did not say to him: ”Suffice yourself with knowing what good is’’ rather he [sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam] affirmed and clarified- for him- the evil that was to occur, in order that he may beware and warn others. This is the Sunnah; this is the path of the Qur’aan and that of the Messenger [sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam].

Hudhaifah said: ‘’I said: O Messenger of Allaah, we were in state of Al-Jaahiliyyah and evil’’

Al-Jaahiliyyah: It is derived from al-Jahl [ignorance]. It is the absence of knowledge, and the intent behind it is the state of affairs before Islaam. The state of affairs before the advent of Muhammad [sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam] is [referred to as] Al-Jaahiliyyah, because the people were in a state of [extreme] ignorance and misguidance in affairs related to worship, mutual dealings, food consumption, marriage and other than that. They were in [extreme] ignorance and misguidance due to the long period between Eesaa and Muhammad [i.e. the absence of a Messenger].

This was a period of over four hundred years in which the divine message ceased. The divine message was obscured, whilst ignorance and misguidance became widespread. The people worshiped idols, trees, stones, false deities, the Jinn and humans. They worshiped the Angels, the Awliyaa and the righteous people, and they were upon divergent paths.

And with regards to the affair of halaal and haraam, they did not distinguish between good and filth; rather they used to deal in usury. The usury of the pre-Islamic era of ignorance was that when they settled a debt with a debtor, they would say, ‘’Either you settle the debt, or we increase the debt and double the time it [should be paid].’’ This was the Pre-Islamic Usury and it used to be predominant in their mutual dealings. They used to gather wealth through forbidden means-through pillage, plunder, robbery and devouring people’s wealth through falsehood.

And with regards to food consumption, they made dead animals and blood lawful; they used to eat dead animals, blood and repugnant things. And with regards to their relationship between one another, they used to kill and fight one another over the most trivial thing. They neither had a leader nor a state. They were either under the authority of tribal systems or under the authority of the Persians and the Romans. The powerful used to encroach upon [the rights of the weak], and an oppressor used to transgress the limits, and no one stopped him. This was the state of affairs in Jaahiliyyah (The Pre-Islamic Period of Ignorance).

They were upon ignorance in all aspects [of life] and the greatest of that [ignorance] was related to worship and creed. They believed in in Shirk, rejected the [Resurrection] and the Divine Message. [Allaah informed us that] they used to say: [مَا أَنْزَلَ اللَّهُ عَلَىٰ بَشَرٍ مِنْ شَيْءٍ – Nothing did Allaah send down to any human being (by revelation) 6:91]

This was their state of affairs in Jaahiliyyah [The Pre-Islamic Period of Ignorance]; then, Allaah [Glorified be He and free is He from all imperfections] sent Muhammad [sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam] with the Guidance and the Religion of Truth. Allaah stated:

[هُوَ الَّذِي أَرْسَلَ رَسُولَهُ بِالْهُدَىٰ وَدِينِ الْحَقِّ َ – It is He Who has sent His Messenger (Muhammad) with Al Hudaa (the Guidance) and Deenul Haqq (the religion of truth -Islaam) 9:33]

‘Hudaa’ is beneficial knowledge and ‘Deenul Haqq’ is righteous action. Allaah (Glorified be He and free is He from all imperfections] sent His Prophet [sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam] with beneficial knowledge and righteous action, so that pre-Islamic ignorance ceased to exist for ever and knowledge and guidance appeared.

The ‘Jaahiliyyah Aamma’ [The Pre-Islamic ignorance that was widespread in the world and touched every aspect of life] has ceased to exist; but it remains amongst some people or some of the tribes, or in some of the lands. This is Jaahiliyyah Juz’iy [partial Pre-Islamic Ignorance]. As for the ‘Jahiliyyah Aamma’, this has ceased to exist after the advent of the Messenger [sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam], but some characteristics of Pre-Islamic ignorance remains with some of the people due to statement of the Prophet [sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam], ‘’Among my people there are four characteristics belonging to pre-Islamic period which they do not abandon: boasting of high rank, reviling other peoples’ genealogies, seeking rain by stars, and wailing (i.e. for the dead).’’ [reported by Muslim].” This remains, but it is an aspect of Jaahiliyyah. As for the Jaahiliyyah Aamma, it has ceased to exist. Therefore, it is not permissible to say that the people are in Jaahiliyyah (Pre-Islamic ignorance).

Some [people] say: ‘’ [The people] are in a state of Pre-Islamic ignorance that is more severe than the one before the advent of the Prophet [sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam].’’ The meaning of this [statement of theirs] is a denial of what the Messenger [sallal-laahu-layhi-wasallam] brought – a denial of the Qur’aan, the Sunnah of the Prophet and the abundant knowledge within our hands. Its meaning is that we are in Jaahiliyyah [Pre-islamic ignorance]. This is a mistake, the people are not in Jaahiliyyah, but there remains some of the characteristics of Jaahiliyyah in some individuals- in some nations and tribes; but this is a specific Jaahiliyyah. Therefore, it is obligatory to be acquainted with this affair.

His [Hudhaifah’s] statement, ‘’We were in a state of ignorance and evil.’’

What is Evil? Evil is that which the people were upon- shirk, worship of images, eating haraam and other evil deeds before the advent of the Prophet [sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam]. These were the evil deeds, but Allaah brought about good [through Islam].  Hudhaifah [radiyallaahu-anhu] said, ‘’And then Allaah brought us this good [time through Islam].’’ This is an acknowledgement of Allaah’s grace, for indeed good [only] comes from Allaah [The Exalted] and He is The One Who guided us. We cannot recognize Good [solely] through our intellects and the knowledge we possess; rather we come to know of it by way of the revelation given to the Messenger [sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam]- the Magnificent Qur’aan and the [authentic] Prophetic Sunnah.

The truth is not known through the intellects or habits of [the people], or through blind following and opinions; rather it is known through the revelation sent down by Allaah [The Mighty and Majestic]-the revelation that was communicated through the tongue of His Messenger [sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam]. Therefore, this is a rebuttal against those who say that the people are free to hold onto their views and everyone can say what he wants. We say, ‘’No, the people are the slaves of Allaah and their intellects and views are deficient. They must return to the revelation in order to know the truth and reject falsehood.’’

And his (Hudhaifah’s) statement: ‘’And then Allaah brought us this good (time through Islam).’’

And what is ‘Good’? It is Islaam, because of the guidance it contains, [sound] knowledge and the absence of doubts that have pervaded the minds of many people. Allaah brought about this Great Good, [and] this is an acknowledgement of Allaah’s blessing, because blessings only come to us from Him [Glorified and Exalted be He]. Indeed, Allaah did not leave us to our intellects and views; rather Allaah is the One Who shows us good and guides us towards it. Allaah [The Exalted] said to His Prophet [sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam]: [قُلْ  إِنْ ضَلَلْتُ فَإِنَّمَا أَضِلُّ عَلَىٰ نَفْسِي ۖ وَإِنِ اهْتَدَيْتُ فَبِمَا يُوحِي إِلَيَّ رَبِّي ۚ إِنَّهُ سَمِيعٌ قَرِيبٌ -Say: If (even) I go astray, I shall stray only to my own loss. But if I remain guided, it is because of the Revelation of my Lord to me. Truly, He is All-Hearer, Ever Near (to all things) 34:50]

He (Hudhaifah) said: ‘’Is there any evil time after this good one?’’  This is evidence that a Muslim is not safe from trials and tribulations even if he is has knowledge, righteous action and correct creed. Indeed, he will not be safe from the callers to misguidance and evil, and for that reason Hudhaifah asked the Messenger of Allaah [sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam], saying: ‘’Is there any evil time after this good one?’’

This is evidence that evil will appear after good, and these are the trials and tests Allaah will allow to appear amongst the people. Indeed they [the people] will not continue to be upon one state; rather they will face changing circumstances. The human being will not be safe from trials and doubts; he will not be safe from the callers to misguidance even if he is upon good, upon a correct creed and the correct Religion. That is why Hudhaifah asked: ‘’Is there any evil time after this good one?’’ He [sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam] said,” Yes.” This is Khabar [information] from the Messenger [Sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam] that evil will occur after the good Muhammad [sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam] came with.  This [trial, test, etc] took place during the latter part of the era of the Sahaabah.

Trials and evil have emerged from the misguided sects, such as the Qadariyyah, the Shia, the Murji’ah, the Jahmiyyah and other than them. This took place during the latter part of the era of the Sahaabah [radiyallaahu anhum]. However, as long as the Qur’aan and the authentic Sunnah are present, then indeed this evil will be repelled if the Scholars convey the Qur’aan and the Sunnah and clarify these trials and evils for the people. Therefore, the cure is present -all praise and thanks be to Allaah-and evil will be repelled.

[Hudhaifah] said, ‘’Will there be a good time again after that evil time?’’ He [sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam] said, ‘Yes.’

In this is evidence that evil will not be continuous, and that the Muslim should wait for solace from Allaah [Glorified and Exalted be He]. Allaah [The Mighty and Majestic] said:

فَإِنَّ مَعَ الْعُسْرِ يُسْرًا

إِنَّ مَعَ الْعُسْرِ يُسْرًا

”So verily, with the hardship, there is relief. Verily, with the hardship, there is relief (i.e. there is one hardship with two reliefs, so one hardship cannot overcome two reliefs).’’94:5-6

Solace must come. He [sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam] said: ”Know that along with patience is assistance, along with distress is solace, and along with every hardship is relief.’’ [Reported by Ahmad]

[A person] should not lose hope when trials and evil increases. Indeed, he should be in a state of tranquillity and should encourage others to be in a state of tranquillity when trials occur, and he should say: ‘’All praise and thanks be to Allaah, we are upon guidance and a clear Religion. Solace is close by and evil will cease to exist by the permission of Allaah’’ This is what is incumbent upon THE PEOPLE OF GOOD AND THE SCHOLARS-that they have tranquillity and [urge] the people to be in a state of tranquillity; because this (EVIL) is something that will cease to exist by the permission of Allaah and solace will come after it.

It is not permissible for a person to say: ‘’The people are destroyed.’’ This is not permissible; rather (a person) should [urge] the people to be in a state of tranquillity, firm upon good and expectant of assistance, for indeed the good end is for the people of piety. Therefore, no matter how great the evil and trial is, it will cease to exist. He [sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam] said: ‘’A group of my followers will remain manifest upon the truth. They will neither be harmed by those who forsake them nor by those who oppose them till Allaah’s command comes [i.e. the day of Judgement].’’ [Bukhari and Muslim]

Islaam will not cease to continue and all praise and thanks be to Allaah. The Religion and the Qur’aan will not cease to exist until that appointed time which the Prophet [sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam] has informed us, that at the end of time the Qur’aan will be taken away from the hearts of men and from the Masaahif [i.e. the copies of the Qur’aan].  The Qur’aan will not remain within the hands of the people [at that time]; but this will be at the time of the destruction of the world [i.e. when the day of judgement is very close]. [However], good will continue to exist whilst the Qur’an, the Sunnah and the Qiblah are present, even though there is one who is led away from it and becomes misguided; and even though there is one who deviates from it and becomes deviated, as the saying goes: ‘’Fitnah has its victims.’’ It takes away the one who goes with it; but the people of Eemaan will remain even if they are small in number. Even if there is one who goes along with the Fitnah, and the one who goes astray and the one who comes along, the truth and its people will remain, and all praise and thanks be to Allaah. The truth is present, as Allaah said:

[إِنَّا نَحْنُ نَزَّلْنَا الذِّكْرَ وَإِنَّا لَهُ لَحَافِظُونَ – Verily We: It is We Who have sent down the Dhikr (i.e. the Qur’an) and surely, We will guard it (from corruption) 15:9]

A person is neither to lose hope nor despair. He should not to make the people lose hope of a return to goodness. He should not make the people lose hope regarding [the fact] that truth will prevail, and falsehood will be repelled; because Allaah [Glorified and Exalted be He] has made that promise and He does not fail to fulfil His promise. Imaam Ibnul Qayyim [rahimahullaah] said: ‘’The Religion is aided when put to the test; therefore, do not be amazed for this is the way of Ar-Rahmaan (The Most Merciful).’’

Allaah said:

وَتِلْكَ الْأَيَّامُ نُدَاوِلُهَا بَيْنَ النَّاسِ وَلِيَعْلَمَ اللَّهُ الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا وَيَتَّخِذَ مِنْكُمْ شُهَدَاءَ ۗ وَاللَّهُ لَا يُحِبُّ الظَّالِمِينَ

وَلِيُمَحِّصَ اللَّهُ الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا وَيَمْحَقَ الْكَافِرِينَ

‘’And so are the days (good and not so good), We give to men by turns, that Allaah may test those who believe, and that He may take martyrs from among you. And Allaah likes not the Zaalimoon (polytheists and wrong doers). And that Allaah may test (or purify) the believers (from sins) and destroy the disbelievers’’ 3:140-141

This is the wisdom behind the occurrence of trials and tribulations, so that the believers are purified, and so that they exercise patience, become firm upon the truth and are cautioned for their mistakes, and in order that they may repent to Allaah [The Mighty and Majestic] and [so that] the disbelievers in Allaah are destroyed. Therefore, [trials and tribulations] is purification for the believers and destruction for the kuffaar and all praise and thanks be to Allaah. It is obligated on the Muslim that he looks at [the affairs] with optimism-neither looks at history and the state of affairs with pessimism and hopelessness nor make the people lose hope. It has been reported in a hadeeth: ‘’Whoever says, ‘the people are ruined, then he himself is ruined.’’’ [Muslim] Therefore, a person should neither lose hope in Allaah’s Mercy nor does he make people lose hope that Allaah will bring about solace.

[Hudhaifah] said: ‘’Will there be a good time again after that evil time?’’ He [sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam] said, ‘’Yes, but therein will be Da’khan (a hidden evil).’’ I asked, ‘’What will be the evil hidden therein?’’ He said, ‘’ [That time will witness the rise of] the people who will follow ways other than mine and seek guidance other than mine. You will know [their] good points as well as [their] bad points.’’

In this is evidence that one should expect solace and should not despair of Allaah’s Mercy. Indeed, good will come after evil. The Muslim should neither despair nor lose hope; [rather] he has to wait for Allaah’s Solace. However, this has to be accompanied by what one is able to perform of actions, statements, spreading knowledge, calling to Allaah, telling the people to have certainty [in the affairs of the Religion] and keeping them away from despair and lack of hope.

He [the pessimist] says: Islaam and the Muslims have vanished, the affair has ended, and the Religion has been annihilated…..and so forth….. These are maqaalaat sayyiah [evil statements].

And regarding his (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam) statement: ‘’But therein will be a hidden evil’’-Meaning: There will be something of alteration [i.e. things that are not in conformity with the Sunnah and guidance of the Messenger] during that good time. It is a [good time] but there would be something of alteration in it. This is information given by the [truthful one, the one who is believed- sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam], and indeed good has occurred along with something of alterations.

[Hudhaifah] said, ‘’What will be the evil hidden therein?’’ Subhaanallaah! This man is precise [in the manner] he presents his questions, and Allaah made him utter that which is of benefit and education for the ummah. He [sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam] said: ”(that time will witness the rise of) people who will follow ways other than mine and they will seek guidance other than mine.’’ Meaning: They will have affairs that are not (in conformity with the Sunnah and guidance of the Messenger Muhammad). They are Muslims and believers who possess good, but they will (also) have something of those things that are not (in conformity with the guidance of the Messenger), which will not terminate their Eemaan and religion; but it will make it deficient. Likewise, there will be deficiency in the worldly affairs. And it [has been reported in another] hadith: ‘’No time will come upon you but the time following it will be worse than it, till you meet your lord.’’ So, they will have some things that are in (opposition to the Sunnah and the guidance of the Messenger-sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam) and they will seek guidance other than that of Prophet [sallal-laahu alayhi-wasallam]. They will initiate things in opposition to the Sunnah, however it will not be a complete opposition; rather it will be a specific type of opposition. In this is a warning against opposing [the Sunnah] even if that is little.

In this is a warning against seeking guidance other than that of the Prophet [sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam] even if that is little; because the Prophet [sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam] referred to it as Dakhan- Meaning: ‘Deficiency and Harm.’ And in this is evidence that the judgment of disbelief is not passed on the Muslim as long as he does not commit Major shirk or apostates from Islaam through one of the nullifiers of Islaam. [Ref 2] However, he may have some affairs of deviation and some affairs that are not in accordance with the (Sunnah). This either makes him one who is mistaken and misguided or a sinner due to committing a sin which does not expel him from the fold of Islaam. So, in this is a fundamental principle from the fundamental principles of Aqeedah, and that is the judgment of disbelief is not passed on the one who commits a major sin; rather this is called Dakhan (hidden evil) and Naqsan (deficiency) in Religion, or sin; but it is not called disbelief and apostasy from the Religion as the Khawaarij and Mutazilah say.

He [sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam] said [to Hudhaifah]: ‘’You will know (their) good points as well as (their) bad points.” You will know the good points of these people and this is evidence that they will possess good. And you will know their bad points, and this is evidence that they will have something of evil, which will be in opposition to the guidance of the Messenger [sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam]. They will possess both good and evil.

The Messenger [sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam] referred to [that particular period] with good and attested to it, and this is evidence [showing that] that [particular period] is good even if there is a hidden evil in it. And in this is proof of the Creed/Methodology of Ahlus Sunnah Wal Jamaa’ah regarding the fact that not every matter that is in opposition to the Prophet’s guidance is disbelief; rather such (opposition) may be an error, or misguidance or deficiency in Eemaan, and it can also be called evil. There is a differentiation regarding evil, and from that is ‘Absolute Evil’, ‘partial evil’ and evil that is compared [with other evil things]. Therefore, we must name the things with their appropriate names.

[Hudhaifah] asked: ‘’will there be a bad time after this good one?’’ He (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam) said: ‘Yes’

This is the third time when evil will occur, but it will be greater than the first time. In the first evil (period), the people possessed both good and evil. However, these ones (a particular type of people who will be present during the third occurrence of evil) will be callers to the gates of hell fire. They do not say to the people, ‘’Come to the hell fire!!’’; [rather] they say: ‘’Come towards progression and civilization (as opposed to the old lifestyles), towards development and conformity with the nations. Do not remain old fashioned and rigid.’’ The meaning of this is: Abandon your religion and go along with the people.

These (people) are callers to the gates of hell fire-they call (the Muslims) to abandon their religion and affiliate themselves to the disbelievers. This is the call to the hell fire because the hell fire is a promise for the disbelievers. They call the people to that which the people of hell fire are upon – the disbelievers, the idolaters and the atheists. How numerous are these callers in the Islamic World today! Laa Hawla Walaa Quwwata Illaa Billaah!

Therefore, we must issue severe warning against them. Why? Because they call us to the hell fire, and Allaah [The Mighty and Majestic] said about the disbelievers: [أُولَٰئِكَ يَدْعُونَ إِلَى النَّارِ ۖ وَاللَّهُ يَدْعُو إِلَى الْجَنَّةِ وَالْمَغْفِرَةِ بِإِذْنِهِ -Those (Al-Mushrikoon) invite you to the fire, but Allaah invites (you) to Paradise and Forgiveness by His Leave’’ [2:221]

And He (Glorified and Exalted Be He) said about shaytaan: [إِنَّمَا يَدْعُو حِزْبَهُ لِيَكُونُوا مِنْ أَصْحَابِ السَّعِيرِ]- ‘’He only invites his Hizb (followers) that they may become the dwellers of the fire. 35:6]

And the believer amongst the people of fir-awn said: [وَيَا قَوْمِ مَا لِي أَدْعُوكُمْ إِلَى النَّجَاةِ وَتَدْعُونَنِي إِلَى النَّارِ -And O my people! How is it that I call you to salvation while you call me to the fire’’ [40:41]

And how did he call them to the Paradise and how did they call him to the fire?

تَدْعُونَنِي لِأَكْفُرَ بِاللَّهِ وَأُشْرِكَ بِهِ مَا لَيْسَ لِي بِهِ عِلْمٌ وَأَنَا أَدْعُوكُمْ إِلَى الْعَزِيزِ الْغَفَّارِ

‘’You invite me to disbelieve in Allaah and to join partners in worship with Him of which I have no knowledge; and I call you to the All-Mighty, the Oft-Forgiving!’’ [40:42]

This is the difference between the callers to good and the callers to evil. Indeed, the callers to good invite to [the path of] Allaah-to His Religion and Paradise; and the callers to evil invite to the hell fire.

[The callers to evil] do not say to the people, ‘’Come to the fire!!’’ They say, ‘’Come to Paradise, these are the actions of the people of Paradise, this is good, this is development, this is rectification, this is and this is….’’ and they beautify that for the people. Therefore, the Muslims must be cautious of these people. Indeed, they have become numerous in this era, and Allaah knows best whether they will increase in the future.

They may be facilitated with tools [of misguidance] which were not possessed by the previous callers to misguidance and are given firm support through such (tools), and this misguidance will rapidly reach the people. The suggestion of the seducer and the falsifier will be adorned and made to appear as something good to the people in any place, whilst it is something evil. This is the height of fitnah.

‘’Whosoever responds to their call will be thrown into the fire. ‘’WHOEVER RESPONDS TO THEM’’: by complying, believing and assisting them, will be thrown into the fire. As for those who does not comply with them, opposes and openly rejects what they are upon, then indeed they will not harm him. Allaah said in the Qur’aan:

وَأَنَّ هَٰذَا صِرَاطِي مُسْتَقِيمًا فَاتَّبِعُوهُ ۖ وَلَا تَتَّبِعُوا السُّبُلَ فَتَفَرَّقَ بِكُمْ عَنْ سَبِيلِهِ ۚ ذَٰلِكُمْ وَصَّاكُمْ بِهِ لَعَلَّكُمْ تَتَّقُونَ

‘’And verily this is My Straight Path, so follow it, and follow not (other) paths, for they will separate you away from His Path. This He has ordained for you that you may become Muttaqoon (pious)’’ [6:153]

The Prophet (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam) whilst explaining this ayah drew a straight line and said, ‘’this is the path of Allaah.” Then he drew lines to the left and right (of this straight line) and said, ‘’ these are the other paths, and on every path is a devil calling the people to it’’ (Ahmad 1/435)

This is a description of the callers to misguidance, their methodologies and objectives. It has been thoroughly illustrated for us that indeed whatever opposes the Straight Path is a path leading to Jahannam, and whoever abandons the Straight Path is heading towards the Jahannam, even if he regards himself civilized, progressive and open minded.

[Hudhaifah] said: ‘’O Messenger of Allaah! Describe them for us.’’ Look at these amazing questions from this honourable companion?! The Messenger of Allaah [sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam] paused, but he (still) asked him, and the Messenger [sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam] answered him in detail and with clarity. He [sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam] said, ‘’They will be a people having the same complexion as ours and will speak our language.’’ This is a Calamity!! Indeed, they are close to you; they are from our community and country. Had they been foreigners; had they been from America or other than it, the affair would have been easy, however, the problem is that they are the son of so and so, and it may be that they say, ‘’I am a scholar; I have with me shahaadaat ilmiyyah (i.e. proofs or certificates that proves that I am a carrier of knowledge) and I am, and I am…. They are from us and they speak with our tongue. They are Arabs like us; rather they possess eloquence. When they write, deliver a speech or a lecture, they speak with our tongue just as Allah said concerning the hypocrites: [وَإِنْ يَقُولُوا تَسْمَعْ لِقَوْلِهِمْ- And when they speak, you listen to their words. [63:4]

They possess eloquence that overwhelms the listener. The listener listens to them because of their eloquent speech. The Prophet [sallal-laahu alayhi wasallam] said: ‘’Indeed some eloquent speech has the influence of magic’’ [i.e. some people refuse to do something and then a good eloquent speaker addresses them and then they agree to do that very thing after his speech] [Bukhari Vol 7. Hadith No: 5146].

They speak with our tongue (i.e. the Arabic tongue). Had they spoken with a foreign language or the language of the Persians, there would not have been inclination towards them, but the problem is that when they speak with eloquent speech, the people are lured towards them. This is the height of fitnah.

Hudhaifah said: “O Messenger of Allaah, what do you suggest if I happen to live in that time? (i.e. the time of the callers to the gates of hell) He said: You should stick to the Jamaa’ah (the main body of the Muslims) and their leader.’’

In this is a clarification regarding what the Muslim must do when these trials occur and the evils by way of which people are called to deviation, decadence, agreement with the disbelievers and abandonment of Islaam and its rulings. Indeed, the Muslim is not deceived by them, rather he stays with the Jamaa’ah of the Muslims. He sticks to the Jamaa’ah of the Muslims and does not separate from them- neither by way of opinions and beliefs nor statements. He is not deceived by speech and what is falsely made to seem desirable; rather he looks at what the Muslims [who are holding onto Qur’aan, the authentic sunnah and example of the sahaabah] are upon. The Prophet [sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam] said: ‘’My ummah will not agree upon misguidance.’’ And he [sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam] said: ‘’It is obligated on you to adhere to the Jamaa’ah, for indeed the Hand of Allaah is over the Jamaa’ah.’’ [Tirmidhee] So be with the Jamaa’ah of the Muslims.

The Muslims cannot be a Jamaaa’h except if they have a ruler who is obeyed. There is no Jamaa’ah except with a leader and there is no leader except that he is to be listened to and obeyed [in good]. And due to this Allaah said: [يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا أَطِيعُوا اللَّهَ وَأَطِيعُوا الرَّسُولَ وَأُولِي الْأَمْرِ مِنْكُمْ – O you who believe! Obey Allaah and obey the Messenger and those of you (Muslims) who are in authority’’ [4:59]

And Allaah said:

وَإِذَا جَاءَهُمْ أَمْرٌ مِنَ الْأَمْنِ أَوِ الْخَوْفِ أَذَاعُوا بِهِ ۖ وَلَوْ رَدُّوهُ إِلَى الرَّسُولِ وَإِلَىٰ أُولِي الْأَمْرِ مِنْهُمْ لَعَلِمَهُ الَّذِينَ يَسْتَنْبِطُونَهُ مِنْهُمْ ۗ وَلَوْلَا فَضْلُ اللَّهِ عَلَيْكُمْ وَرَحْمَتُهُ لَاتَّبَعْتُمُ الشَّيْطَانَ إِلَّا قَلِيلًا

When there comes to them some matter touching (public) safety or fear, they make it known (among the people), if only they had referred it to the Messenger or to those charged with authority among them, the proper investigators would have understood it from them (directly). Had it not been for the Grace and Mercy of Allâh upon you, you would have followed Shaitân (Satan), save a few of you.’’ [4:83]

Therefore, in this is evidence regarding the means to safety from trials, and that is to adhere to the Jamaa’ah of the Muslims and their leader. This is safety by the permission of Allaah. As for the one who isolates [himself] from the Jamaa’ah of the Muslims [i.e. from the true followers of the Qur’aan the authentic sunnah and understanding of the companions] and follows the callers to misguidance, then indeed he will be destroyed alongside those who will be destroyed. There is a guaranteed safety in adhering to Jamaa’ah of the Muslims and their leader. Allaah said:

وَمَنْ يُشَاقِقِ الرَّسُولَ مِنْ بَعْدِ مَا تَبَيَّنَ لَهُ الْهُدَىٰ وَيَتَّبِعْ غَيْرَ سَبِيلِ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ نُوَلِّهِ مَا تَوَلَّىٰ وَنُصْلِهِ جَهَنَّمَ ۖ وَسَاءَتْ مَصِيرًا

And whoever contradicts and opposes the Messenger (Muhammad (sallallaahu alayhi wasallam)) after the right path has been shown clearly to him and follows other than the believers’ way (i.e. the way of the companions). We shall keep him in the path he has chosen and burn him in Hell – what an evil destination.’’ [4:115]

And he [sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam] said: ‘’It is obligated on you to adhere to the Jamaa’ah, for indeed the Hand of Allaah is over the Jamaa-ah. And whoever isolates himself from the Jamaa’ah will be isolated in the fire’’ And he [alayhis-salaatu-wassalaam] said: ‘’I enjoin upon you to have fear of Allaah, and to listen and obey even if a slave is placed in charge over your affairs. For indeed whosoever lives long amongst you will see a lot of differences, so stick to my sunnah and the sunnah of the rightly guided khulafaa after me.’’

Therefore, whoever wants to save himself during these trials and evils, then he should not move away from what the Muslims and their leader are holding onto [i.e. the understanding of the Sahaabah]; rather he must exercise patience along with them. And even if he is afflicted with difficulties, he still exercises patience until Allaah [The Mighty and Majestic] brings about Solace. This is the path to safety. He [sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam] said: ‘’Adhere to the Jamaa’ah of the Muslims [i.e. my way and that of the companions] and their leader’’

[Hudhaifah] said: ‘’What if they have no (such thing as the) main body and have no leader?’’ This honourable Sahaabi does not stop asking the Messenger [sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam] questions that contain great benefits for the ummah. He [sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam] replied: ‘’Separate yourself from all these factions though you may have to eat the roots of trees (in a jungle) until death comes to you and you are in this state.’’ In this is evidence [that one is to abandon] all the groups that are in opposition to that which the Messenger [sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam] came with, and that which the Salaf of this ummah and their Imaams were upon, and that which the Jamaa’ah of the Muslims are upon.

When the Jamaa-ah of the Muslims is no longer [present] wa-laa-hawla-walaa-quwwata-illaa-billaah, then what should the Muslim do? He should isolate himself from all these sects, because they are all deviated sects and callers to the gates of hell fire. He should adhere to the Jamaa’ah of the Muslims if he finds them, and if not, then isolate yourself even if you are alone. Be firm upon the truth even if you are alone, and that is why it is said, ”The Jamaa’ah is the one upon the truth even if he is alone”. This is the Jamaa’ah, and the Jamaa’ah is not the numerous groups; rather it the one upon the truth, ‘’though you may have to eat the roots of trees (in a jungle) until death comes to you and you are in this state.’’

In this is evidence that what is given consideration are one’s FINAL ACTIONS. Indeed, the one who isolates himself from trials, stays firm upon the truth and exercises patience when facing trials until death comes to him in this state, then indeed he will be from the people of Paradise [InShaaAllaah]. And the one upon whom death comes to whilst he has changed and substituted (the truth, his religion etc) and followed the callers to misguidance, then indeed he will be from the people of hell fire [i.e. if he leaves the fold of Islaam; but if he dies upon other than major shirk or kufr, he is left under the will of Allaah, who will either punish or forgive him].

Conclusion:

These are the few statements [mentioned] regarding this tremendous hadith. It clarifies the dangers that are an obstacle to the ummah in their [path, religion]. In it is clarification regarding what is binding upon a Muslim during trials and that which is obligated on him in relation to adhering to the Jamaa’ah of the Muslims and their Leader, the Salaf of this ummah and their Imaams.  All praise and thanks be to Allaah, Lord of the Aalameen, and may Allaah’s peace and blessings be upon our Prophet [Muhammad], his family and all his companions. [Source: An Excerpt From Booklet published by Daar Imaam Ahmad 1426/2005.

Ref 2: Judgement on Apostasy:

Shaykh Salih al-Fawzaan On Those Who Ought to Pronounce Takfir and Establish the Hadd Punishment: [See article ID: MNJ090004 at salafipublications.com

Question: O Respected Shaykh, who is the murtadd (apostate)? We hope for you to define it in a clear manner, for sometimes the judgement of apostasy can be made upon a person while there is some doubt that he had.

Shaykh Salih al-Fawzaan: The judgement of apostasy and expelling someone from the religion is only appropriate for the people of knowledge who are firmly grounded in knowledge, and they are the judges in the various Sharee’ah law courts, and those who are able of giving legal verdicts. And this is just like the other matters, and it is not the right of every person, or from the right of those who are learning, or those who ascribe themselves to knowledge, but who have deficiency in understanding. It is not appropriate for them to make judgements of apostasy (upon others). Since, mischief will arise from this, and sometimes a Muslim might be judged as an apostate, but he is not actually so. And the takfir of a Muslim who has not committed one of the nullifications of Islaam contains great danger. Whoever says to his brother O Kaafir or O Faasiq, and he is not like that, then the words will fall back upon the one who said them. Hence, the ones who actually judge with apostasy are the legislative judges and those who are able and fit for giving legal verdicts. And as for those who enforce the judgements they are the leaders of the Muslims (wullaat al-amr). As for whatever is other than this, then it is mere confusion.

Question: Some of the students of knowledge are a bit lax towards applying the word of apostasy (riddah) to a Muslim, and this person might sometimes be asked by the Muslims to carry out the hadd punishment for apostasy when the Sultaan does not carry it out upon the one they consider deserves it, the one who has been judged with apostasy.

Shaykh Salih al-Fawzaan: Meting out the punishments is only appropriate for the leader of the Muslims and it is not for every person to establish the punishment, since confusion, and corruption necessarily follows from this, and also the cutting off of the society, tribulations and provocations occur. Establishing the punishments is appropriate (i.e. befits only) to the Muslim leader. The Prophet (sallallaahu alaihi wasallam) said, pardon each other for the punishments that are between you, but when the execution of the punishment reaches the [authority of the] Sultaan, then Allaah curses both the one who seeks intercession and the one who grants the intercession [i.e. to revoke the punishment]. And from the responsibilities of the Sultaan in Islaam, and from those matters that befit him is the establishment of the punishments after they have been established legislatively, via the Sharee’ah law courts, upon the one who fell into the crime for which the legislator has designated a specific punishment, such as for stealing. So, what has been said is that establishing the punishments (i.e. meting them out) is from the rights of the Sultaan, and when the Muslims do not have a Sultaan amongst them, then they should just suffice with commanding the good and forbidding the evil, and calling to Allaah, the Might and Majestic, with wisdom, good admonition and arguing with that which is best. And it is not permissible for individuals (in the society) to establish the hudood, since that, as we have mentioned, will bring about chaos, and also provocations, and tribulations will arise, and this contains greater corruption than it contains rectification. And from amongst the Sharee’ah principles that are submitted to is, Repelling the harmful things takes precedence over bringing about the beneficial things.

[15B] Excerpts from Shaikh Rabee’s Book Titled ‘Marhaban Yaa Taalibal Ilm’- The Ahzaab [Deviated Parties and Groups]

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

Shaikh Rabee Bin Haadi [may Allaah preserve him] said:

These [Ahzaab -deviated parties and groups (Ref 1)] do not desire except leadership, so they overlook the Shirkiyyaat [beliefs, views and practices that are tantamount to shirk], Bidah and Dalaalaat [beliefs, views and practices that are tantamount to misguidance].  And they raise flashy slogans that beguile the intellects of many youth and thus they begin to regard the scholars as betrayers, stooges and spies -descriptions which even the leaders of misguidance of old were unable to utter.

So, O youth! Be warned about these people who behave as if they have an earnest concern for Islaam, however they are the first to behave negligently towards the [sound] Islamic fundamentals and  principles without which Islaam cannot be established [as it should be established] – such as the sound belief related to the Names and Attributes of Allaah, [sound] belief related to singling out Allaah in worship, the three categories of Tawheed, resurrection, paradise, hell fire, punishment in the grave and other affairs of creed.  [Ref 2]

Imaam Ibnul Qayyim said: ‘’To honour the [upright] scholars, having love for them and obeying them in that which is related to obedience to Allaah, is something beloved to Allaah, legislated and obligated by Allaah.’’

Then Shaikh Rabee said: I say, ‘’It is obligated on the Ummah to acknowledge the status of the [upright] scholars and to know that it is obligated to love and obey them; and hating them is tantamount to hating the religion of Allaah. Hating the carriers of this religion -the [upright] scholars – will lead to having hatred for true knowledge that has been inherited from the prophets. Woe to the one who hates them and their [sound] creed!

[4] Excerpts From Shaikh Rabee’s Book Titled ‘Marhaban Yaa Taalibal Ilm’ -[A Calamity Has Afflicted Those Who Do Not Reject Bidah]

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

Shaikh Rabee [may Allaah preserve him] said:

Nowadays many people do not consider bidah to be something harmful to the people upon bidah. By Allaah, it is a calamity upon those who have reached this state of affairs. His desires lead him to [such a state] he does not consider bidah as something harmful to those upon bidah, even though the Messenger [sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam] said, “The worst of all affairs are the newly invented matters [in the religion] and every newly invented matter [im the religion] is a bidah, and every bidah is misguidance.” [Muslim 867]

And [The Messenger (sallal laahu alayhi wasallam)] said, “The Jews split into seventy one sects, the Christians split into seventy two sects, and this Ummah [i.e. Muslim Ummah] will split into seventy three sects, and all of them will be in the fire except one; so they [i.e. the sahaabah] said, ‘Who are they O Messenger of Allaah?’ He said, those upon what I and my companions are upon.” [Tirmidhee 2641 & declared Hasan by Sh Albaani in Saheeh Al-Jaami 5343]

They [i.e. the saved sect] are the people upon truth – Ahlus Sunnah, the people who adhere to the Qur’aan and Sunnah, the enemies of bidah, misguidance, disbelief, shirk and all types of misguidance. They love the truth, and they establish love and hatred based on that. [End of Quote]

[مفسدة القول على الله بلا علم ]

Here is a Beautiful and Detailed Clarification By Shaikh Muhammad Bin Haadi [may Allaah preserve him] regarding the statement ‘Bidah is more severe [or worse] than sin. The audio is 47 mins long. Here is the transcript of the lecture:

فإنا جميعًا على الساحة كما يقولون نسمع ونرى كما تسمعون وترون، نشاهد بعض التصرفات وهي في الحقيقة مبنية على بعض التقعيدات وهذه التصرفات النشاز المنكرة التي لم نكن نعهدها من قبل ماجاءت في هذه الأزمان إلا لتحقيق أهدافًا، وحقيقة نرى هذا التحقيق ونرى اثاره مشاهده ملموسة فكل يوم يطلع علينا طائفة من الناس بما لم نكن نعهده من قبل، حيث ذكر الشيخ محمد هذه الأمور فلا بأس من الكلام عليها، وهذا في الحقيقة واجب علينا لإخواننا المسلمين عمومًا وطلاب العلم والسلفيين خاصة حتى لا يخدعوا ويقعوا في شيراك هذه الشباك، ففي مدة سابقة والآن في الآونة الأخيرة بُعثت مرة آخرى نبشت قضية البدعة والكبيرة، وبدأ أصحاب هذه الإتجاه يُقعدون لمرادهم وسمعنا هذا من قديم لكن الآن نراه، الناس يسعون إلى نشره وربما لا يعلمون، بعض طلبة العلم يقع فيه وهو لايعلم، ذلكم قولهم جنس البدع أعظم في جنسها ومجموعها من الكبائر، أما من حيث الأفراد فيعني لا تستطيع أن تقول، ثم يضرب لك مثالاً، فمثلًا يقول: هل تريديني أن أجعل من يذكر الله جل وعلا بأذكار على هيئة مخصوصة مبتدعة أو مثلاً يسبح بالسبحة مثلاً هكذا أو نحو ذلك من البدع التي يراها هو صغيره كما يقول، هل تريدني أن أجعل هذا أشد في جرمه من منّ يزني أو يشرب الخمر الناس أستعظمت ذلك،الله أكبر كيف هذا، كيف يقول هذا،يستكثر هذا ويستنكره، هذا يذكر الله أو يسبح أو يتعبدلله لكن صح وقع في جهل وبعبادات أما هذا يزني، أجعل هذا مثل هذا، لاماهو مثله أخطر منه، هذه مصيبة، بدأ أول مايصدمك بهذا التقرير وبضرب المثال هذا فيتخلل أهل السنة ليصل إلى الثمرة والنتيجة التي يريدها وهي التهوين والتسهيل من المحدثات والبدع، ويصل إلى مايريده مما هو مبني على هذا وهو كسر سور الولاء والبراء عند أهل السنة لأهل البدعة، حتى نقول له هذا الكلام الذي تقولونه هو هدم لمنهج السلف رحمهم الله تعالى في هذا الباب، نعم البدعة وإن قَلّت هي بدعة وهي أشد من المعاصي وإن كانت كبيرة، تدرون لماذا؟ لأن صاحب البدعة يراها دينًا، أما صاحب المعصية فلا يراها دينًا، فأيهم أشد؛ التشريع أو إرتكاب المعصية؟ بلا شك التشريع، الله جعله شركًا قال جل وعلا: {أَمْ لَهُمْ شُرَكَاءُ شَرَعُوا لَهُمْ مِنَ الدِّينِ مَا لَمْ يَأْذَنْ بِهِ اللَّهُ }[ الشورى:21]

فهذا الشرك في العمل سماه الله شركًا في هذه الأية : ” من استحسن في الدين شيئًا ليس له أصل فقد شرع” وهذه عبارة السلف من استحسن فقد شرع ولا شك أن هذه البدعة التي جاء بها هذا المبتدع وتعبد الله بها، هو وإن لم يقل بلسانه بمقاله صوتًا وحرفًا تسمعه بإذنك إن الدين ناقص، لكن بفعله وحاله ينسب إلى الدين النقص لأن الله جل وعلا يقول: {الْيَوْمَ أَكْمَلْتُ لَكُمْ دِينَكُمْ وَأَتْمَمْتُ عَلَيْكُمْ نِعْمَتِي وَرَضِيتُ لَكُمُ الْإِسْلَامَ دِينًا }[ المائدة:3]، وهذا بلسان حاله يقول الدين ناقص يحتاج إلى إيش ؟ إلى تتمة، النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم قد رد على ذلك في قصة النفر والرهط الذين جاءوا إلى بيت أو بعض بيوت أزواجه، فسألوا عن عبادته، فكأنهم تقالوها،فقالوا ذاك رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم قد غفر له ماتقدم من ذنبه، يعني شف كيف جاء الوسواس، كأنما النبي اتكل على إيش؟ على المغفرة التي سبقت له من الله تبارك وتعالى وقلل في العمل إعتمادًا على هذا الغفران فأرادوا أن يزيدوا، فقال بعضهم:” أنا أصوم ولا أفطر،قال الآخر أقوم ولا أرقد، قال الثالث لا أتزوج النساء”، وفي رواية آخرى جاء رابع قال: “لا أكل اللحم “،فالنبي صلى الله عليه وسلم لما بلغه ذلك غضب وقام خطيبًا في أصحابه وقال: ( مابال أقوام يقولون كذا وكذا) ثم قال عليه الصلاة والسلام: ( ألا إني أخشاكم لله وأتقاكم له وإني أقوم وأرقد وأصوم وأفطر وأتزوج النساء) ثم قال: ( فمن رغب عن سنتي فليس مني) ويقول عثمان بن مضعون رحمه الله ورضي عنه يقول: ” لو رخص رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم في التبتل لأختصينا ” نهى عن التبتل يعني ترك التزويج لأنا مطالبون بذلك لتكثير النسل لعمارة الأرض بالتوحيد وطاعة الله تبارك وتعالى: ” تناكحوا تناسلوا فإني مكاثر بكم الأمم يوم القيامة ” أمة نبينا صلى الله عليه وسلم أكثر الأمم يوم القيامة، الشاهد النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم انكر هذا وقال في آخره إيش؟ :” من رغب عن سنتي فليس مني” فهذا إبتداع في دين الله تبارك وتعالى فالبدعة مهما رأيتها صغيرة لا تنظر إلى فردها لا، لكن انظر إلى ما؟ إلى أصل احداثها؛ وانشاءها، الأصل في إحداثها وإنشائها أن صاحبها وإن لم يقل بلسان مقاله إن الدين ناقص لكنه بلسان حاله وهو واقع على العمل يزعم أن الدين ناقص فأحتاج إلى أن يأتي بمثل هذه البدع والله سبحانه وتعالى قد أكمل لنا الدين، فمن استحسن فقد شرع ومن جاء ببدعة فقد رأى أن محمد صلى الله عليه وسلم خان الرسالة وإن لم يزعم ذلك بلسانه لأن النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم لحق بربه وبالرفيق الأعلى وماترك طائر يطير بجناحيه في السماء إلاوأعطانا منه علمًا أو خبرًا علمه من علمه وجهله من جهله، هذا لاشك ،الشاهد النظر عند أهل السنة إلى ما؟ إلى الأصل أصل البدعة، لما نظروا إليها إلى أنها إحداث للدين وإتهام له بالنقص وإتهام للنبي صلى الله عليه وسلم وإن لم يكن بلسان الإنسان ومقاله لكنه بواقعه وبحاله، قالوا: باب ماجاء في أن البدعه أو البدع أعظم من الكبائر، لما؟ لأنهم نظروا إلى أصلها الذي انشأت به، نعم وإلى الثمرة التي تترتب عليها ومانظروا إلى الآحاد وهذا أمر متقرر عند السلف واقرأوا الكتب المسندة في آثار السلف، واقرأوا الكتب المختصرة التي نقلها أئمة السنة من المتأخرين عن المتقدمين من السلف ومن ذلك شيخ الإسلام ابن تيمية رحمه الله تعالى بل يقول: وقد قررت هذا مرارًا وكثيرًا – يقول- أن البدعة أعظم من المعصية وإن صغرت هذه البدعة لأن النظر لا إلى صغرها ولكن النظر إلى احداثها فإن صاحبها يراها دينًا ولذلك صاحب البدعة لا يتوب في الغالب وصاحب المعصية يتوب،صاحب المعصية لا يتعبد بها، صاحب البدعة يتعبد بها، هذا فرق عظيم، صاحب المعصية لايتعبد بها لايراها دينًا، صاحب البدعة يراها دينًا فلهذا قال النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم كما جاء في حديث أنس أن الله احتجز التوبة عن كل صاحب بدعة لماذا؟ لأنه يرى ماهو عليه دين فكيف يتوب، أما صاحب المعصية لو جئته على الخمر لو جئته على الدخان، لو جئته على الزنا لو قيل كذا كذا كذا، فذكّرته إما أن يستحي وإما أن يقول لك ادعوا الله لنا بالهداية وإما أن يسكت، تمام؟ هذا معروف، الآن لو ترى صاحب دخان وإلا حالق لحيته، أو مرتكب لأي منكر من المعاصي وتنصحه، إما أن يستحي فيسكت وإما أن يجرؤ قليلاً فيأتيه الأدب مع الشجاعة ويقول: ادعوا الله لنا ياشيخ بأن يهدينا وهذا سمعناه وحصل لنا كثيرًا ممن تكلمنا معهم في هذا الباب على مختلف الأعمار والبلدان والشرائع مايقول لك أنها من الدين لكن أصغر محدث ومبتدع إذا جئت تكلمه ينافح عن بدعته ويراها دينًا ويراك أنت المخطأ فهو من هذا الباب البدعة أعظم من المعصية، هؤلاء عكسوا القضية فنظروا إلى الأفراد ولم ينظروا إلى المقصد في إقامة هذه البدع وهو الإستدراك على الدين والإحداث في الدين وتعبد الله جل وعلا بما لم يأذن به الله سبحانه وتعالى ومالم يشرعه رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم وذلك في قوله:(من أحدث في امرنا هذا ماليس من فهو رد ) وقوله: (كل عمل ليس عليه امرنا فهو رد ) وقوله عليه الصلاة والسلام: (كل بدعه ضلاله) لما لم ينظروا إلى هذا وقعوا في هذا التقعيد، بناءً عليه فيدخل من شاءوا إدخاله كما يقولون من الدعاة ومن الإسلاميين كما يقولون هم ايضا، وهكذا وهكذا عُدّ من ذلك وهذا كتب في الصحف وموجود لبعض الكتبه يكذبون ويكتبون ذلك وينسبونه إلى بعض الأئمه وحينما نرجع نجد كلام الائمة خلافه تمامًا، فياعباد الله هذا الأمر أمر خطير خطير جدًا، فتجد قول السلف:”فاسق أهل السنة خير من عابد أهل البدعة” هكذا يقولون. أحمد رحمه الله يقول:” قبور فساق أهل السنة رياض من رياض الجنة وقبور عباد المبتدعة حفر من حفر النيران” هذا يقوله أحمد؛ بالله عليكم أنا اتبع أحمد وإلا مع هؤلاء؟ هذا قول أحمد، يقول بعض السلف: رأيتك تمشي مع طلق قال: نعم، قال: لأن أراك تخرج من خماره أحب إليّ من أن تمشي مع طلق، طلق عالم وعابد وراوي للحديث لكن عنده بدعه، بدعة القدر؛ يقول له: تخرج من خماره أحب من أن تمشي ياناس يقول أحب من أن تمشي مع فلان، مجرد المشي ياناس ماهو نفس البدعة التهوين منها؛ لا مجرد المشي، يقوله: لو أراك تخرج من خماره يابني أحب إليّ من أن أراك مع طلق، هذا قول السلف؛ أين هؤلاء منه؟ هذا عظيم جدًا، فلذلك انعكست عندهم الموازيين بل عند اتباعهم وإلا هم عكسوها قصدًا، والمقصد من ذلك هو الذي ذكرناه، هذا أولاً، ثانيًا جاءونا بجنس الصحابة أفضل من حيث العموم جنس وإلا[..] في غيرهم آحاد من التابعين ومن بعدهم أفضل من بعض آحاد الصحابة، عجيب هذا عجيب، وهذا أنا قد رأيته من سنين، ومن المواطن التي رأيته فيها تعليق على كتاب السنة للأسف، السنة للإمام أحمد من رواية عبدوس العطار، رأيت هذا التعليق للعيد عباسي وهذا من أفحش الكلام، يقول جنس الصحابة من حيث الجنس العموم أفضل لكن قد يوجد آحاد ممن بعدهم أفضل من بعض الصحابة.

أحمد يقول:” من رأى النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم ساعة واحدة؛ هو أفضل ممن جاء بعده ولو لقي الله بكل عمل صالح” فهذا المعلق عيد عباسي قال: قُلتُ:” في قول أحمد نظر” هكذا يقول من غير حياء ولاخجل ولاوجل، وقديمًا قيل وهو الحديث إذا لم تستحي فأصنع ماشئت:” إنما أدرك الناس من كلام النبوة الأولى إذا لم تستحي فاصنع ماشئت” حتى على هذه القاعده هم أرادوا شيئًا لكنهم لايمكن أن ينالوه، وأنا أدركت هذا من أول يوم حينما سمعت هذه المقاله ورأيت هذا الكلام وقد نبهت عليها في عدد من الدروس ومنها الدروس في جده وقلت بلغوا صاحب هذا الكتاب الذي حققه أن يتقي الله في هذه التعليقات التي شركه فيها عيد عباسي نعم، وبلغني بعد ذلك أنه أعتذر، فقلت عذره وتوبته أن يحذف هذا ويبينه في الطبعات القادمة وإلا هو مشارك له، وبلغني قبل أيام من مجيئي إليكم أنه وعد بأنه الآن في الطريق طبعه جديدة وينص على هذا، فأرجوا الله أن يوفقه، الشاهد هذا القول أرادوا به التهوين من مسألة الطعن في الصحابة رضي الله عنهم، فأحمد رحمه الله يقول رؤية النبي تكفيهم، ويدخلون فيما أعده الله جل وعلا لهم في قوله: { وَالسَّابِقُونَ الْأَوَّلُونَ مِنَ الْمُهَاجِرِينَ وَالْأَنْصَارِ وَالَّذِينَ اتَّبَعُوهُمْ بِإِحْسَانٍ رَضِيَ اللَّهُ عَنْهُمْ وَرَضُوا عَنْهُ } [التوبة:100]، هذا الوعد { وَالسَّابِقُونَ الْأَوَّلُونَ مِنَ الْمُهَاجِرِينَ وَالْأَنْصَارِ } مطلق :{ وَالَّذِينَ اتَّبَعُوهُمْ بِإِحْسَانٍ } مقيد، قال جل وعلا :{ لِلْفُقَرَاءِ الْمُهَاجِرِينَ الَّذِينَ أُخْرِجُوا مِنْ دِيارِهِمْ وَأَمْوَالِهِمْ يَبْتَغُونَ فَضْلًا مِنَ اللَّهِ وَرِضْوَانًا وَيَنْصُرُونَ اللَّهَ وَرَسُولَهُ أُولَئِكَ هُمُ الصَّادِقُونَ }[ الحشر:8] هذا في المهاجرين، : { وَالَّذِينَ تَبَوَّءُوا الدَّارَ وَالْإِيمَانَ مِنْ قَبْلِهِمْ يُحِبُّونَ مَنْ هَاجَرَ إِلَيْهِمْ وَلَا يَجِدُونَ فِي صُدُورِهِمْ حَاجَةً مِمَّا أُوتُوا وَيُؤْثِرُونَ عَلَى أَنْفُسِهِمْ وَلَوْ كَانَ بِهِمْ خَصَاصَةٌ وَمَنْ يُوقَ شُحَّ نَفْسِهِ فَأُولَئِكَ هُمُ الْمُفْلِحُونَ} [ الحشر:9] هذا فيمن؟ في الأنصار، وقال سبحانه وتعالى في سورة الحديد الأية: {لَا يَسْتَوِي مِنْكُمْ مَنْ أَنْفَقَ مِنْ قَبْلِ الْفَتْحِ وَقَاتَلَ أُولَئِكَ أَعْظَمُ دَرَجَةً مِنَ الَّذِينَ أَنْفَقُوا مِنْ بَعْدُ وَقَاتَلُوا }[ الحديد:10].

وأشركهم جميعًا في ماذا؟ :{وَكُلًّا وَعَدَ اللَّهُ الْحُسْنَى} التي هي إيش؟ الجنة، التي قال الله فيها في كتابه : { وَالسَّابِقُونَ الْأَوَّلُونَ مِنَ الْمُهَاجِرِينَ وَالْأَنْصَارِ وَالَّذِينَ اتَّبَعُوهُمْ بِإِحْسَانٍ رَضِيَ اللَّهُ عَنْهُمْ وَرَضُوا عَنْهُ} الأية، يدخلهم جنات، فالجنات الجنة هي الحسنى: {وَكُلًّا وَعَدَ اللَّهُ الْحُسْنَى} بدليل قوله : {لِلَّذِينَ أَحْسَنُوا الْحُسْنَى وَزِيَادَةٌ} فسر النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم الحسنى بالجنة والزيادة بالنظر إلى وجه الله تبارك وتعالى في الدار الأخرة، فالله وعد الجميع بالحسنى، فدخل من رأى النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم مؤمنًا به ومات على ذلك، من اجتمع بالنبي صلى الله عليه وسلم، من لقي النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم على التعريفات المعروفة في الصحابي والتي اصحها من لقيه أو اجتمعه ليدخل في ذلك من اجتمع به وآمن به وهو كفيف، فمن لقي النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم واجتمع به ولو ساعة – يقول أحمد- أفضل ممن جاء بعده ولو لقي الله بكل عمل صالح، سألوه معاوية أفضل وإلا عمر بن عبد العزيز ولو غبار دخل في أنف معاوية مع رسول صلى الله عليه وسلم، من هو عمر بن عبد العزيز؟ تمام؟ هؤلاء يريدون أن يهونوا من مسألة الطعن في الصحابة التي وقع فيها رؤوسهم ومقدموهم ومعظموهم، أقول للإخوان وقد قلت لهم حتى على هذا لايصلح، لأن رؤوس هؤلاء الذين يريدون الإعتذار فيهم، ماهم في آحاد الصحابة يطعنون، يطعنون في عثمان رضي الله عنه، عائشة رضي الله عنها لما بلغها ذلك، انكرت أشد النكير، وابن عمر رضي الله تعالى عنهما لما بلغه ذلك انكره أشد النكير، بل قال لصاحب هذا الطعن في عثمان، قال له أن الله يقول: { لِلْفُقَرَاءِ الْمُهَاجِرِينَ } وتلا الأية: {والذين..}، قال: أنت منهم؟ قال: ارجوا، قال: لا هذه في المهاجرين، تلا له الأية الثانيه، قال أنت منهم؟ قال: ارجوا، قال: لا هذه في الأنصار، ثم تلا له الثالثة وهي قوله: { وَالَّذِينَ جَاءُوا مِنْ بَعْدِهِمْ يَقُولُونَ رَبَّنَا اغْفِرْ لَنَا وَلِإِخْوَانِنَا الَّذِينَ سَبَقُونَا بِالْإِيمَانِ وَلَا تَجْعَلْ فِي قُلُوبِنَا غِلًّا لِلَّذِينَ آَمَنُوا رَبَّنَا إِنَّكَ رَءُوفٌ رَحِيمٌ } قال: أنت من هؤلاء؟ قال: ارجوا، قال: لا، لست منهم، فإن هؤلاء يستغفرون لهم وأنت تطعن في عثمان، عثمان مناقبه عظيمة وسيد قطب يطعن فيه، فما يمكن، عثمان ليس من آحاد الصحابة؛ من أصحاب السنة المتبعة؛ من الخلفاء الراشدين المهديين، من الخيار الأبرار، ثالث المبشرين بالجنة، صهر رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم على ابنتيه، مااجتمعا بنتا نبيًا عند مخلوق قط إلا عند عثمان، استحت منه ملائكة الرحمن واستحى منه رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم، لايستحي منه سيد قطب ولااتباعه، فقبح الله من يقول في عثمان مثل هذا القول ولايستحي من الله ولا من خلقه، فنعوذ بالله من الضلالة، لما نقوش هذا الرجل أرادوا أن يطعنوا ايضا في معاوية، فجاء لأن سيد قطب يتكلم في معاوية ويتكلم في عمرو بن العاص ويقول أنهم غشاشين وكذابين، طبعًا ماقال بهذه العبارة ولكن لما يقول:” يركن معاوية ومن معه إلى الكذب والغش والخداع وشراء الذمم” هذا منّ؟ هذا معاوية وعمرو بن العاص رضي الله عنهم، يتهمهم بهذه العضائل، يعني إذا كان معاوية كاتب الوحي و[..] المؤمنين هذه صفاته، وخير ملوك الإسلام قاطبةً هذه صفاته عند هؤلاء القوم، لماذا؟ ليصلوا بذلك إلى تهوين طعن سيد قطب ومن كان معه في هذا، الشاهد الأمر خطير جدًا، فإذا سمع مثل ذلك، يأتينا آتي يقول: تريدني أن اجعل أبو واقد الليثي تريدني أن اجعله مع كبار الصحابة؟ قلت: لا، الله عز وجل قد قال:{ لَا يَسْتَوِي مِنْكُمْ مَنْ أَنْفَقَ مِنْ قَبْلِ الْفَتْحِ وَقَاتَلَ أُولَئِكَ أَعْظَمُ دَرَجَةً مِنَ الَّذِينَ أَنْفَقُوا مِنْ بَعْدُ وَقَاتَلُوا }لكن قال الله فيهم جميعًا: {وَكُلًّا وَعَدَ اللَّهُ الْحُسْنَى} وقال النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم : (لاتسبوا أصحابي) فأنا أسألك: هل ثبتت له الصحبة عندك وإلا لا؟فإن قال: لا، فقد كذب وإن قال: ثبتت، قلت له النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم يقول في بقية الحديث: ( لو أنفق أحدكم مثل أحد ذهبا مابلغ مد أحدهم ولانصيفه) تثبت الصحبة نعم؛ أنا وأنت لو انفقنا مثل أحد ذهب أحمر خالص صافي مايبلغ نصف مد أحدهم من الشعير، أي فضل في هؤلاء القوم، أي فضل ماتستطيع تحده ولا تصفه، إذن هذا الذي لقي النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم مؤمن به، صدق فيه كلام أحمد وإلا كلام هؤلاء، أحمد يقول ولاغبار ساعة دخلت انف معاوية رضي الله عنه مع رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم مايصل إليه عمر بن عبد العزيز ومن هو عمر بن عبد العزيز؟ عبده خامس الخلفاء الراشدين، مجدد على رأس المائة الأولى، أول ماكتبت السنة وحفظت ودونت تدوينًا عامًا بأمره ووو إلى آخره، ومع ذلك يقول: ساعة أحمد في هذا الرجل العظيم، الذي عظم في نفسه وأقام الأمة على الاستقامة على دين الله يقول: ولا غبار ساعة دخل في أنف معاوية رضي الله عنه مع النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم مايصل إليه عمر، وهو عمر فكيف بهؤلاء؟ هذه القضية قضية خطيرة جدًا، ولأجل ذلك رأينا الآن بعض أبنائنا في المملكة العربية السعودية ماعنده مانع أن يسمع أن تقول سيد قطب يطعن في أصحاب النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم مايهتز لك شعور لما؟ لأنهم خدروهم بهذا الكلام الخبيث الباطل، فأصحاب النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم من طعن في واحد – يقول أحمد- أو سبه أو عرّض بسبه فهو مبتدع رافضي خبيث، يقوله الأمام أحمد على السلطان أن يؤدبه فإن تاب وإلا خلده [الحبس] حتى يموت، هكذا قول أحمد في السنة التي رواها عنه [الأزرق]، الشاهد هذا كلام أئمة الإسلام وأئمة الهدى، وهؤلاء ماأرادوه، إنما جاءوا بمثل هذا القول لما ذكرنا ولأن الإخوان المسلمين لامانع عندهم من أن يستحلوا مع الروافض بل انشأوا دار للتقريب أول ماقاموا، بيننا وبين الرافضة فحينئذ هذا السور العظيم وهو سور الولاء والبراء مع الروافض الذي هو متين وقائم بقوة في صفوف أهل السنة في هذه البلاد خاصة منذ القدم أرادوا هدمه لأنهم لن يصلوا إلا بهدمه،فما يمكن أن يتسور عليك الرافضي إلا بهذا إذا هدم هذا السور، فلأجل ذلك لابد أن تتنازل، طارق السويدان في الكويت يقول تبغى تسب أبو هريره ياخي سبه في بيتك لاتجرح مشاعري،أنا أحب أباهريرة لاتجرح مشاعري لاتسمعني، قبحك الله؛ من سب أبا هريرة عندنا فكأنما سب أصحاب رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم أجمعين لأن أبا هريرة رضي الله تعالى عنه حافظ سنة رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم وأكثر الأحكام رويت من طريقه رضي الله عنه، كم سينهدم علينا من الدين إذا قلت فيه بما قلت، إذا سب أبا هريرة والله لأن تموت ابناءنا وبناتنا وازواجنا وتذهب أموالنا أحب إلينا من أن نسمع بل ونموت نحن أحب إلينا من أن نسمع من يلعن أبا هريرة أو يسبه أو يسب واحد من أصحاب رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم،ووالله لن نجلس مجلسًا نسمع فيه من يسب واحدًا منهم، ولنقومن عليه أشد القيام بإذن الله تبارك وتعالى إلا أن نتخطف، هذا دين الله تبارك وتعالى، امرنا الله بالترضي عنهم ونحن نسمع السب لهم، فياعباد الله الآن تذكر مثل هذا كما قلت لكم، [برز] كثير من الشباب ممن يسمعون من هؤلاء.

الجنس الثالث الذي جاءونا به الجديد ماهو الجنس الثالث القديم الذي عرفناه في المعاصي؛ لا في البدع ذاك الجنس الثالث التخنث اكرمكم الله، الجنس الثالث الجديد اليوم في البدع، قضية إيش؟ جنس العمل وماأرادوا بها والفتنة التي حصلت بها، ماأرادوا تقرير جنس العمل على طريقة أهل السنة والجماعة وإنما احدثوه لما رُدّ على الخوارج وعلى المكفرين بغير طريق صحيح، كنت في جمعة بل في الجمعة الماضية في مجلس وإذا بشخص أعرفه وهو فاضل وشيخ لكن انطلقت عليه هذه القضية وسيأتيكم، بعد الجمعة جلست معه وإذا به يقول يعني بعض الشباب الآن فتنوا بفتنة التكفير وبعضهم فتنوا بفتنة الإرجاء فمثلاً منهم من لايرى تكفير تارك الصلاة على مذهب الألباني على طول هكذا، تركته حتى أكمل، قلت تسمح لي؟ قال: تفضل، استدرك على نفسه قال: الشافعي، قلت: تسمح لي؟ قال: تفضل، فقلت:

يكفر بالإجماع من لها جحد والله أحدثكم بالذي صار بيني وبينه مثل هذا الوقت بعد الجمعة الماضية:

يكفر بالإجماع من لها جحد … ولم يخالف فيه قطعا من أحد

لأنه قد ماثل الشيطانا … وكذب الرسول والقرآنا

وهو كغيره من الكفار … وحكمهم يعطى بلا تمار

فإن أقر بالوجوب وأبى … فقتله على الأصح وجبا

للكفر أو حداً على خلاف … قد جاء عن أئمة الأسلاف

وأعدت العبارة هذه واتكيت كما يقول إخوانا المصريين عليها:

قد جاء عن أئمة الأسلاف

وقال قوم إنه لا يكفر … كلا ولا يقتل بل يعزر

وحبسه حتى يصلي قد رأوا … والحق قل مع من بقتله قضوا

سكت قليلاً ثم قال: قول منّ هذا؟ ثم أدركه سريعًا قال: الشيخ حافظ الحكمي، قلت: نعم، فقلت له: والله حفظنا هذا قبل أن نعرف هذه الأشياء وقبل أن ندخل حتى التعليم الجامعي، فالآن أقول لك عن أئمة الأسلافِ، فلما [سجدتم] وجعلتهم الألباني هو الذي انفرد بهذا القول،لما؟ قال لأمر ما جدع قصير أنفه، قلت له: الشافعي الذي ذكرت،وهذا موجود في الأم ومالك، وأبو حنيفه ورواية عن أحمد وهي المذهب ايضًا عندنا نحن الحنابلة، ليش صار الألباني هو الذي انفرد بهذا، وصار الذين لايكفرون مرجئة بعده، والله ماعقب بشيء، خرج إلى موضوع ثاني طبعًا أنا أعرفه فاضل لكن ادركت أن الرجل ايش؟ ادرك القضية، أدركها لأني اعرفه تمامًا فاضل،الشاهد إذا كان هذا الفاضل انزلق بسبب كثرة الطَرق، يقولون كثرة الطرق يلين الحجر، لما ذكرت له هذا. فالقضية هذه ليست قضية جنس عمل، القضية قضية تفتيت لأهل السنة وضرب لأهل السنة والألباني من الصخور التي تكسرت عليها معاول أهل البدع ممن ناوش أهل الأهواء والبدع، أنا أقول الألباني لانوافقه في كذا ولانوافقه في كذا ولانوافقه في كذا، لكن هل هو من المرجئة؟ ياشيخ أنت لو تعدد أئمة الإسلام ستجد لفلان غلط ولفلان غلط ولفلان غلط، لكن هذه الأغلاط ماأخرجتهم عن السنة، حياته كلها في نصرت السنة وفي تدوين السنة وتنقية السنة وإقرار السنة والدعوة إلى السنة ومحاربة البدع، إذا قلت هذا القول كأنما جئت بأعظم العظائم عندهم، صرت ألبانيًا مرجئًا، أنا قلت له:أعتقد أن تارك الصلاة الذي أدين الله أنا به أنه كافر لكن الذي لايقول بأنه كافر؛ أنا ماأقول أنه مرجئ، أقول لك: قد جاء عن أئمة الأسلافِ، فهذه القضية جنس العمل وماجنس العمل المقصود منها هذا وأنتم لو رأيتم الكتبة في هذا تضحكون عليهم، يأتون إلى القاضي عياض ويعرّفونه بالفضيل بن عياض، ماشاء الله القاضي عياض في القرن الخامس والفضيل بن عياض في القرن الثاني، يُعرف بالقاضي عياض يحطه الفضيل بن عياض شف هذا العلم، هذا العلم الذي انتهوا إليه، فالإنسان يتعجل وهذا من مزالق هؤلاء الناس التي الله سبحانه وتعالى يجعلها مداخل لأهل السنة عليهم، فالمقصد من هذا معشر الأخوة هذه القضايا كل يوم يأتوننا بشيء المقصد منه تفريق أهل السنة والمقصد منه إقرار مايريد هؤلاء إقراره حتى يصلوا إلى مرادهم فنسأل الله العافية والسلامة فالواجب علينا جميعًا أن نعرف هذه الخطط وأن نعرف من يقوم على تطبيقها فنحذرهم ونحذر مجالسهم ونحذّر منهم وندعو الناس إلى بيان الحق، من كان عنده علم ومعرفة يبين للناس الحق وندعو الناس إليهم إلى هذا الحق، ونحذرهم من هذا الخلط على الخلق، التخليط هذا على الناس يوقعهم في الحيرة، فنسأل الله سبحانه وتعالى لنا ولكم جميعا العلم النافع والعمل الصالح وصلى الله وسلم على عبدنا ورسولنا محمد .

الشيخ محمد الهاجري:شكر الله لصاحب الفضيلة هذا الإيضاح المبارك وهذا التفصيل الجلي وهذه الأمثلة وهذه الشواهد، هنا سائل يقول:[..] أرباب دعاة من يسمونهم الصحوة كما يزعمون يركزون على التحذير من الشهوات ويبخلون عن التحذير من الشبهات فما جوابكم على ذلك؟

الشيخ محمد بن هادي: هذا غلط وغلط عظيم وايضًا التحذير من الشبهات وترك التحذير من الشهوات ايضًا غلط وتقصير والواجب التحذير من هذا وهذا ولكن الأول أشد تقصيرًا من الثاني؛ من يحذر من الشهوات ولايحذر من الشبهات هذا أشد لأن الشهوة ليس من شرع عبادة فميل النفس وغلبة النفس والشيطان ونحو ذلك يتغلب على الإنسان في هذا وهو لايدين الله به ولايراه دينًا أما الشبهة فالشيطان يلبسها على الإنسان حتى يراها دينًا والنبي صلى الله عليه وسلم قال في الذي شرب الخمر لاتسبوه فإنه يحب الله ورسوله لكن قال في الخوارج تحقرون صلاتكم عند صلاتهم، صح وإلا لا؟ طيب وتحقرون قراءتكم عند قراءتهم وقال في رواية آخرى لفظ آخر ليست قراءتكم إلى قراءتهم بشيء يعني قليلة وليست صلاتكم إلى صلاتهم بشيء فهم قوم كثيروا الصلاة وكثيروا القراءة نعم، لكن قال: ” كلاب النار”، وقال:”شر قتلى تحت أديم السماء” وقال:” طوبى لمن قتلهم” الله أكبر، أكثر الناس عبادة، أكثر من الصحابة صلاةً وقراءة وطوبى لمن يقتلوه “وطوبى لمن قتلوه، ” شر قتلى تحت أديم السماء”، “خير قتيل من قتلوه” ويقول: “لئن أدركتهم لأقتلنهم قتل عاد”، ويقول: ” يمرقون من الدين كما يمرق السهم من الرمية ثم لايعودون فيه” فيقول السلف آخر الحديث أشد عليهم من أوله، يرجع من بدعة الخروج مايرجع إلى السنة [..]،يرجع إلى بدعة آخرى، قالوا فلان كان على رأي الخوارج رجع كلا مايمكن أن يرجع،[..] انظر والله آخر الحديث أشد عليهم من أوله، فوجدوه رجع إلى مذهب المرجئة يعني من بدعة إلى بدعة وهذا مصداق قول النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم: ( ثم لايعودون فيه) ، يعودون إلى بدعة آخرى، فالشاهد هذا الآن في مبتدع وهذا فيمن وقع في مفسق نعم، قال فيمن شرب الخمر لاتسبوه يحب الله ورسوله، وقال في الخوارج في هذا الوصف العظيم يحقرون صلاتهم عند صلاتهم وقراءة الصحابة وهم الصحابة عند قراءتهم، لكن مع ذلك كلاب النار وشر قتلى تحت أديم السماء وطوبى لمن قتلهم وطوبى ايضًا لمن قتلوه وخير قتيل من قتلوه، هم شر قتلى تحت أديم السماء، ولئن أدركتهم لأقتلنهم قتل عاد، فالشاهد الذي يقصر في التحذير من البدع أشد ممن يقصر من التحذير من الشهوة لكن كلاهما مقصر، فالواجب والوسط العدل أن يكون محذرًا من هذا وهذا ولكن الذي نحن نعتقده أن دين الله وسط بين الغالي فيه والجافي عنه، فلابد من الجمع بين هذا وهذا لكن من قصر في التحذير من البدعة أشد وأعظم جرمًا ممن قصر في التحذير من الشهوة لأن هذا دين يتدين به، أما ذاك لاينسبه إلى الدين وهذا أعظم ولذلك قال السلف كما قلنا: باب ماجاء في أن البدع أعظم من الكبائر نعم.

الشيخ محمد الهاجري: شكر الله لكم هذه الإجابة ولعلها خاتمة لهذا المجلس وبالله التوفيق وصلى الله وسلم على نبينا محمد وبارك الله في الجميع

[1] Introduction: [The Reality of Masjid Al-Furqaan’s Admin (Rusholme- Manchester)]- Reminder to the Salafiyyoon of South Manchester Regarding Attendance at Conferences Organised by Hizbi Masjid Admins

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

Shaikh Muhammad Bin Haadi [may Allaah preserve him] was asked about attendance at Islamic conferences [or gatherings] of knowledge that are under the supervision of the Jam-iyyaat [i.e. Islamic organizations of illegal partisanship] but also attended by Mashaayikh who are considered to be upon the Sunnah….So the Shaikh said that the brothers are aware of his speech concerning all these Jam-iyyaat. These Jam-iyyaat seek to promote and establish their goals through some of the Mashaa-yikh, therefore one should not attend.  Some of the Mashaayikh are unaware of the pursuit of these Jam-iyyaat through them.

The Reality of Masjid Al-Furqaan’s Admin [Rusholme- Manchester]

Masjid Al-Furqan’s Admin allies with deviants from Maghrib Institute and the Bid’ee Abu Usaaama. Likewise, they ally with Naveed Ayaz -the deceiver- who is allied with the hizbiyyoon of Greenlane and Masjid Sunnah [Cheethamhill]. However, this admin – every now and then- invites speakers from abroad to utilise as a shield. They hope that by either inviting people with qualifications or individuals teaching at Islamic institutions in some of the Muslim countries, or those said to have studied under some of the scholars, this would give them a good image in the eyes of the unsuspecting people. However, Masjid Al-Furqan’s Admin is still upon its old ways – no disassociation from the Bid’ee Abu Usaamah, the deceiver Naveed Ayaz-ally of the Hizbiyyoon of Greenlane and Luton- and the hizbiyyoon of Al-Maghrib Institute. The Admin has not made any statement to free themselves from these individuals and organisations. Likewise, after they were caught promoting the books of Sayyid Qutb- the Mentor of the contemporary Takfeeris- they still have not made any clarifications to show that they are free from Sayyid Qutb, rather they have kept quiet whilst hoping that the Salafiyyoon will forget, then they can invite personalities from the Muslim lands to cover up their hizbi track record.

To be continued…InShaaAllaah

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.
