Who are Ahlul Hadith – Shaykh Rabee’ b. Haadi

Excerpts from the full article – taken from Salafipublications.

  • They are those who proceed upon the way of the Companions and those who followed them in righteousness, in clinging to the Book and the Sunnah, biting onto that with their molar teeth, and letting them (i.e., the Qur’aan and the Sunnah) take precedence over any statement or code and conduct – whether in belief, or acts of worship such as dealings and transactions, mannerisms, politics or social life…

 

  • They are those who are observant and lie in wait for every group that has deviated from the way of Islaam, like the Jahmees and the Mu’tazilees and the Khawaarij and the Rawaafidh and the Murji’ah and the Qadriyyah and all of those who have deviated from the way of Allaah and have followed their desires in every time and place – they not affected by the reproach of the blamers, in the cause of Allaah
  • They are the group that the Messenger of Allaah has praised and commended in his saying, “There will not cease to be a group from my Ummah manifest and upon the truth not being harmed by those who forsake them neither by those who oppose them until the hour is established.” [1]
  • They are the Saved Sect firm upon that which the Messenger and his Companions were upon, those who have been distinguished and defined by the Messenger of Allaah when he mentioned that this Ummah shall divide into seventy three sects all going to the Hell-fire except one and it was said, “Who are they, O Messenger of Allaah?” He said, “They are those who are upon that which I and my Comapnions are upon.”
  • And this is not something we say in exageration or a mere claim, but verily we speak a reality that the text of the Qur’aan and the Sunnah bears witness to, which history bears witness to, and to which their (i.e., the Ahlul-Hadeeth’s) statements, their state of affairs, their writings and works also bear witness to. They are those who put before their eyes the statement of Allaah: And hold fast, all of you together, to the rope of Allaah. [2]….

 

  • They are the most staunch in distancing themselves from opposing the command of the Messenger and the most distant from fitnah…

”We do not have except the methodology of the Prophets!” By Shaikh Rabee

Shaikh Rabee [may Allaah preserve him] said:

Indeed swerving away from the methodology of the prophets in calling to Allaah is a swerving and deviation towards misguidance and destruction. That is because Allaah [The Blessed and Most High] laid down and ordained this methodology for all the Prophets.

If the people have Shi-aaraat (i.e. distinguishing principles, doctrines, calls), then we do not have except the Shi-aar (distinguishing principle, doctrine, call) of the Prophets; if the people have methodologies, then we do not have except the methodology of the Prophets (alayhimus salaatu was-salaam). The Qur’aan is the greatest testimony and Allaah has often repeated these testimonies and reiterated them in many of the Aayaat: “And verily, We have sent among every Ummah (community, nation) a Messenger (proclaiming): “Worship Allah (Alone), and avoid (or keep away from) Taghut (all false deities, etc. i.e. do not worship Taghut besides Allah).” [Soorah An-Nahl: Ayah: 36]

Every Messenger said this to his nation and appeared to his people with this call-the call to Tawheed–and to turn away from Taghut.

[5] The Creed of the Saudi Kings

The reaction of King ‘Abdul-‘Azeez as-Su’ood upon being praised in lines of poetry.

Once, during one of King ‘Abdul-‘Azeez as-Su’ood’s (rahimahullaah) trips to the town of al-Kharj (7th of Dhul-Hijjah 1363AH -approx: 23rd November 1944CE) a poet from the people of Najd entered upon him. In his hand was a poem he had written, and so he sought permission from the King to read it out. He began: You are our hope and in you is hope… Upon hearing this King ‘Abdul-‘Azeez called out in rejection and glanced across the gathering to Shaykh Hamad al-Jaasir, saying, “O Ibn Jaasir, take this man and teach him some Tawheed!” [Source: Min Hayaatil-Malik ‘Abdil-‘Azeez, pg.71]

A Slave will not truly actualize….. Imaam Ibnul Qayyim (rahimahullaah)

Imaam Ibnul Qayyim (rahimahullaah) said: A slave (of Allaah) will not (truly actualize the statement) ”you alone we worship (O Allaah)”, except by way of two fundamental principles: The first of them is to follow the Messenger (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam) and the second is sincerity to the (only true object) of worship (i.e. Allaah) [source-page: 68تهذيب المدارج ]

Tawheed Ar-Roboobiyyah–Al-Allaamah Zaid Bin Haadee Al-Madkhalee

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

Tawheed Ar-Roboobiyyah: [It is] firm belief and clear affirmation that Allaah (alone) is The Lord and Owner of everything. He (alone) is the Creator, Provider and He (alone) gives life and death. He (alone) is the One who judges and controls the affairs with what He wills, how He wills and whenever He wills. Whatever Allaah wills must happen and whatever He does not will cannot happen. He is the Lord of the entire universe and the king of the Day of Judgement. He created everything and measured it exactly according to its due measurements, and He gave to each thing its form and nature, then guided it aright. This aspect of Tawheed was affirmed by the idol worshippers during the lifetime of the Prophet (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam) and the Qur’an has informed (us) about their affirmation of it. [Allaah (The Most High)] said:

وَلَئِنْ سَأَلْتَهُمْ مَنْ خَلَقَ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالْأَرْضَ وَسَخَّرَ الشَّمْسَ وَالْقَمَرَ لَيَقُولُنَّ اللَّهُ ۖ فَأَنَّىٰ يُؤْفَكُونَ

”If you were to ask them: “Who has created the heavens and the earth and subjected the sun and the moon?” They will surely reply: “Allah.” How then are they deviating (as polytheists and disbelievers)?

He (The Most High) said:

قُلْ لِمَنِ الْأَرْضُ وَمَنْ فِيهَا إِنْ كُنْتُمْ تَعْلَمُونَ
سَيَقُولُونَ لِلَّهِ ۚ قُلْ أَفَلَا تَذَكَّرُونَ
قُلْ مَنْ رَبُّ السَّمَاوَاتِ السَّبْعِ وَرَبُّ الْعَرْشِ الْعَظِيمِ
سَيَقُولُونَ لِلَّهِ ۚ قُلْ أَفَلَا تَتَّقُونَ

Say: “Whose is the earth and whosoever is therein? If you know!” They will say: “It is Allah’s!” Say: “Will you not then remember?” Say: “Who is (the) Lord of the seven heavens, and (the) Lord of the Great Throne?” They will say: “Allah.” Say: “Will you not then fear Allah (believe in His Oneness, obey Him, believe in the Resurrection and Recompense for each and every good or bad deed).” [23:84-87]

So even though they affirmed this aspect of Tawheed, it did not enter them into the fold of Islaam because they did not acknowledge that Allaah (alone) has the right to be worshipped; rather they associated others as partners to Him in worship. Indeed, Allaah is so self-sufficient that he is in no need of having any partner. [Allaah said in a Hadeeth Qudsi]: ”Whoever does an action whilst associating others as partners (to Me in that action), I am free from him and (the action he performed), and (I am free from being (a partner) to the one He (associated as a partner to Me in that action).”

[1] Fataawa Related to women

Question:

What are the obligations a woman is to fulfil in order to become a female Muslim who adheres to her Religion?

Answer:

It is obligatory upon a person– be it a man or woman– to enter into the fold of Islaam and testify that none has the right to be worshipped except Allaah and Muhammad is the Messenger of Allaah; (he/she should) establish the five daily prayers, pay the zakat, fast the month of Ramadaan and perform the hajj if the means to that is made possible.  And (he/she) should believe and adhere to the pillars of Eemaan and they are: Belief in Allaah, belief in His Angels, belief in His Books, belief in His Messengers, belief in the last day and belief in the pre-decree—its good and evil.  (And he/she) should fulfil all the remaining obligations and keep away from the forbidden things.  So by way of this (a person) becomes a true Muslim.
