Does anyone know about Sa'eed Rageah as-Soomaal and his salafiyyah, if any? I herd he is a da'ee in the Maryland area.

Please let us know about him as much as is Islaamically possible, so that we would know his true reality.

May Allaah reward all the salafee participants on this forum for their love of salafiyyah and the 'Ulemah.

  As Salaam Alaykum,

A former employee of WAMY, he offered the da'wah centre in Toronto cooperation, money, sponsership... with the condition that WAMY can affiliate them and that pictures of the sponsered event can be displayed in WAMY's publication, their WAMY banner put on all events etc.

WAMY's activities are clearly ikwaanee as their sponsership of deviant organizations would indicate.

Walhamdulilah, the Salafiyyeen declined this offer.

Aboo Zakee

  Assalaamu alaikum. This is how the Ikhwanis buy out people and buy out their dawah. Same with Ihya Turath, and same with the Surooris. Same with many of these groups and jam'iyyahs. They buy others out with their money. Which is why they can't stand the Salafis as they will not be bought out. The true Salafis that is! But those who sell themselves, then they just degenerate! The dawah of these people is full of compromises and they only wish to gather numbers, and they please everybody. Which is why they are able to get lots of money and financial strength, and then they use it to fight against the Salafis, and to swallow them up and to divide them wherever they are. May Allaah protect us from this fitnah.

  Sa'eed came to Toronto  a few months ago and a meeting took place where he claimed that due to a fatwa that Shaikh Salih Fawzan gave, it was permissible to go out and lecture with different groups that were not Salafi.  When the Salafi brothers refuted his usage of a general fatwa for a specific issue, and explained to him the Salafi position about co-operating with these different groups, he remained quiet and did not say anything.  So we do not know if his position has changed. He also tried to make excuses for his lectures along with people like Waleed Basyouni in this same meeting, and when the Salafi brothers proved to him his error in this, he again remained quiet.
He tried to make it look as though he was eager to work with the Salafis, however we heard that when he went back to the US, he brought the likes of Jamal Zarabozo and other deviants to his masjid.
Indeed, this Sa'eed Rageah is one to be considered a mukhalif to the da'wah of the Salaf, and at the very least he needs to be watched carefully.

  We received this by email:


As Salaamu Alaykum,

I just wanted to comment on the Br. Sa'eed Rageah.  I heard the brother mention on the membar at the Dawah Center AYAT in Laurel that "We Are Not Salafi, We are Ahulsunnah Wa Jam'ah".  I asked him about this statement and he replied "We are not the Salaf, I don't know who the Salifies are".

a brother sent me the following info:

"Here is some new info about Saeed Rageah and the
panel of people who will speak with him at a program on June 1 2001 titled
"Steadfastness on the Islamic Path".

Jafar Idris
Safi Khan at Dar Salaam in college
Ali Darwish
Altaf Hussein
Saeed Rageah
Hussein Afeefy
Mamdouh Mohamed"
... advertizing a lecture with Jamaal Zarabozo May 10 2002.
end of email.

The brother also mentioned that they brought Abdullah as-Sabt and Muhammad Sayed Adly for lectures at their masjid but couldn't recall the excat dates.

An essay can be written about most of the speakers on this list and their opposition to the slafee da'wah. wal llaahul musta'aan

It seems as this brother, Sa'eed Rageah is calling to other that the salafee dawah.

  As-Salaamu AlaiKum,

2009:  i've not personally met him, but i know he's been to my city (in Yorkshire, England).

He is relatively new here, and since the people may not have previously heard of him, i just wanted to raise this thread.

From the posters i've seen, he has given lectures at (and is promoted as a 'Shaykh', by) a big ikhwaani organisation in my city,

And I also recall his name appearing on the line-up of the '2009 Peace TV Conference' (but i cant confirm this).
