Today after salatul Fajr in MASJID AS_SUNNAH AL MUHAMMADIA (the sheikh's masjid) Sheikh Muhammad Abdulwahhab al Banna hafidhahullaah began by mentioning the great event of the Day of Judgement as the Imam in the Fajr prayer beautifully read some of soorah al Hajj.

Then the sheikh spoke about the signs of the Day of Judgement in particular regarding the increase in Harj (killing). Then sheikh advised the congregation to follow His deen upon the Quran and Sunnah in the way of the sallaf us saalih not to split up into groups like ikhwaani, tableeghi suroori etc.

Then the shiekh got up and shook hands with those around him and as he was walking to the door to go, he saw a Yemeni looking person wearing a black turban (being an unusual dress in saudi) and so the sheikh hafidhahullaah said to him, inquisitively, "are you from the Taliban?" then the person defensively said, "what is wrong with the Taliban?" This person praised Osamah Bin Laden and called him Mujaahid. The sheikh responded by first going back to his seat and called the man over to sit. We gathered around to listen to the shiekh. He said "as for this turban, it resembles what the Taliban wore that is why i asked you whether you were from them." Then the person started accusing the sheikh of belittling the sunnah!! The sheikh let him finish and replied to him by saying he wasn't belittling the sunnah for he too wore a turban to cover his head and regarding his praise of Osamah ibn Laden the sheikh said that Osamah went out against the government here and that he calls for Jihaad in times of weakness. That Jihaad has conditions and he has caused more harm than good by praising those who hijack, bomb and commit suicide to kill civilians and women and children even in the Muslim lands. The person defended that Jihaad was present now. The sheikh said to him "where is your preparation? Do you have half the strength of the disbelieveres?" The person said that it wasn't a condition since in the end of time the Muslims will miraculously defeat an army more than twice their strength. The sheikh replied by saying "the sunnah of Allaah does not change as in mentioned in the last part of Soorah al Anfaal that: if there be amongst you 100 they will be able to defeat 200 and 1000 will be able to defeat 2000 by the will of Allaah and you cannot use a miracle that will happen at the end of time as proof to go out and fight Jihaad now when you have not prepared for it." Also the sheikh mentioned that Osamah ibn Laden is fighting behind which flag???Allaah mentions in Soorah al Baqarah that even the prophets did not call for jihaad except after being in leadership or behind a King that rules a land. The sheikh also mention proofsfrom Sahih Muslim from kitaab al imaarah (leadership) about obedience to the rulers in those things that are not disobedience to Allaah. But still the man was argumentative.

In the end the person was very argummentative saying these proofs are coming from those who have shakiness (zayg) in their hearts and so they follow the mutashaabih (doubtful matters)!!! This was a horrible accusation to the Sheikh.

So the sheikh with a stronger voice said "This is our way our proofs from Quran and sunnah in the understanding of the pious predecessors this is what we call to we will not accept your defence of Bin Laden and your speech. If you want to listen fine this is what we have and what the scholars are upon."

Then someone said to the man "which scholars praise Bin Laden??? and man couldn't answer then i heard the sheikh say "these Khawaarij, you will see your prayer and fasting difficient compared to theirs but they see only themselves as the scholars and don't recognise the scholars at all only themselves." Then the sheikh left.

Alhamdulillaah, the rest of the day the sheikh taught the sunnah after every prayer. After Asr he taught Umdat al Ahkaam, after Isha he mentioned the bid'ah that happens in the month of Ragab here certain worship is specified in this month.  

The sheikh had a set of tapes in his hands 1 of them was sheikh Obayd al Jabri's refutation of Aa'id al Qarni and the other three were from Sheikh Sultan 'Eed on the suicide bombings. The sheikh wanted 250 copies made for distribution.

May Allaah bless the sheikh for indeed he is a mujaahid fighting in spreading the salafi da'wah coming up against all sorts of people, yet still firm mashaallaah upon the sunnah wal hamdulillaahi rabil 'AAlameen.

قال تعالى:{إنا نحن نزلنا الذكر وإنا له لحافظون}
قال الشيخ السعدي - رحمه الله - في تفسيره (3/31): " فلا يحرف محرف معنى من معانيه( القرآن ) إلا وقيض  الله له من يبين الحق المبين وهذا من أعظم آيات الله ونعمه على عباده المؤمنين".

May Allaah love the shaykh and preserve him.  Jazaakumullaahu khayran Abdal-Ilaah for the summary of his day.  Shaykh Rabee' mentioned about him today, that he is min shuyookhi shuyookhihi! (Shaykh Al-Bannaa is from the teachers of Shaykh Rabee's teachers!)  We ask Allaah to increase his reward.

There is no doubt, that that individual's turban color was indicative of what was the color of the spots on his heart!

Assalaamu alaikum wa rahmathullaahi wa barakathuhu

Just some simple thoughts...

Jazaakumullaahu khayran AbdulIlaah for this post.

I was wondering, that many common Salafi's like myself (apart from the name of the Shaykh) do not have a lot of information about Shaykh al-Banna in detail in the form of a biography and written works translated.

I was wondering if the Salafi Du'aat could work together and have some of the works by Shaykh al-Banna put online and even published in Books, because his with his old age undoubtedly it carries vast amounts of experiences with regard the major fitnahs that have come and gone over the last few decades aswell as his 'Ilm of the Deen.

Perhaps the Shaykhs current audios on and any other articles should be collected and another addition be made the the Scholar Series of Websites namley

Our Ulema need to be known and Shaykh al-Banna due to his old age is an exception that people should be aware of him and his masjid and visit it when they are in Saudi Arabia.

May Allaah better the Shaykhs health even more, Ameen!

Imaam al-Awzaa'ee said, "Patiently restrict yourselves to the sunnah, stop where the people stopped, say what they said, avoid what they avoided. Take to the path of the salaf, for indeed what was sufficient for them was sufficient for you."

Asalamu Alaykum Wa Rahmatulahi Wa Barakatu,

Could someone send me a PM regarding the location of the Shaikh's masjid?  Myself and a couple other brothers in Jeddah would like to visit him insha'Allah.

Those who reject Our Ayât (proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.) are deaf and dumb in darkness. Allâh sends astray whom He wills and He guides on the Straight Path whom He wills. (Al-An'am 6:39)

Concerning the taliban.

Would someone please direct me to a link(s) that will provide me with our correct position on the Taliban, we hear all kinds of nonsense (at times) from the news media, which I stay away from.

BarakAllahu feek,
